Description of the Marathon vacation townhouse rental
This 3 bedroom, 3 bath, half duplex townhouse offers all you need for a great vacation. Stunning open water views of the Gulf of Mexico, beautiful sunsets, your own private pool and cut in boat slip with lift. Great views from the living area and master bedroom.
The ground level entry is off the carport with a door to the back yard, pool and dock, room for easy storage of fishing poles and boating gear. Upstairs on the first level is the kitchen, dining and living area and the first bedroom and hall bath. The kitchen has everything you will need within easy reach and a breakfast bar for extra seating. The bedroom has a queen size bed and a small balcony, the bath has a tub/shower combination. Off the living area is a covered porch with outdoor dining overlooking the pool and dock, the perfect spot to celebrate the sunset! The top floor has a master suite on the waterside of the unit with a queen size bed and private bath that also has a tub/shower combination. An open porch off the master is a great spot to catch some sun in the day or salute the sunset after a day on the water. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and private bath.

The pool is at the foot of the unit just off the covered patio where you will find a gas grill and a bait freezer for the fisherman. Fish cleaning table on the dock. The cut in slip is shared with the other side of the duplex and this side has a newly installed 10,000 lb boat lift for guest use. The lift will fit a trailerable size boat up to 30' 9' beam. Immediate access to the Gulf and just a short run to the 7 Mile Bridge for bridge fishing or beyond to the Ocean! Like to fish off the dock? The seawall on the Gulf is the spot to be and has a ladder for easy access if you want to take a swim or snorkel along the shoreline.

The property now offers two great Trek bikes for an easy ride to the Old 7 Mile Bridge and one kayak for touring the shoreline by water!

The unit has tile floors on the first living level and carpet in the upstairs bedrooms. Central A/C, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave oven, washer/dryer, WiFi high speed internet.TV's in the living area, first floor bedroom and master bedroom, DVD player in the living area. Parking is limited to two vehicles or one truck and trailer. We offer complimentary trailer storage at our office. The 33rd.

One of the best views of the 7 mile bridge and sunsets in the Keys!

Like beaches? Sombrero Beach is located at Mile Marker 51 only a few miles drive from anywhere in the Middle Keys as is Coco Plum Beach. Bahia Honda State Park is about a 20 minute drive south.

Other attractions: The Dolphin Research Center is located on Grassy Key and is always a fun spot to stop in for their tours or schedule a swim with the dolphin. The Natural History Museum at Crane Point provides a look at Keys history, sea life, touch tanks for kids and nature walks through the Hammock (also a great gift store).
Key West is a great day trip and about 1.25 hours south.

Boat rental companies are available in the Middle Keys and most of them will let you keep the boat at your dock for the week (some will even deliver and pick up the boat!).

fantastic experience at 7 mile bridge

April 5, 2015

this property is better than described. The location is perfect. Day trips in either direction is easy and within an hour youre there. House is neat and up to date. Bicycles and kyak are definitely a plus.Biking on seven mile bridge Is neat. Marathon is not your average tourist town. Very laid back and as normal as anywhere. The views at sunset are awesome. pool is a great retreat after a day trip. used the grill to cook fish caught. special thanks to Kitty Whalton at vacation rentals, she was right on with information on property and surrounding things to do. GREAT TRIP !!!!!!!!!! thank you.

Our trip would have had five stars but mother nature decided to let it rain most of the week. We always enjoy our trip when we go to the keys. The home we rented was very nice, clean, and well kept. It was a duplex but we never heard our neighbors. very sound proof. We are already preparing for our next trip.

Great Family Vacation Spot!

September 24, 2012

Our party, 4 adults and 3 small children stayed at this property in Sept 2012. Great water views! We traveled with a boat and a jetski. The public ramp was really close. The Sombrero reef was not far. This is a great location. It was a short driving distance to Bahia Honda Park that has excellent beaches. The condo was clean, has an updated kitchen and clean pool! We fished straight from the dock and had a great time! A manatee even cruised by one evening! Great place! We would stay again and highly reccommend!
