Description of the Marathon vacation home rental
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THIS VACATION RENTAL?
This vacation rental puts you on your own tropical island in a quiet cove of protected mangroves in the Gulf of Mexico. You stay on a 2 bedroom houseboat that is docked on the island. You have your own 17 foot center console boat with 50HP yamaha engine for the entire week!

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN STAY AT QUIET COVE KEY?
Our rental license allows up to 7 people to stay on the boat and there are beds for 5 and a futon in the main cabin. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom and one double and one twin in the second bedroom. Adventurers are welcome to camp on the island also.

HOW DO WE GET TO AND FROM THE ISLAND?
We provide you a boat to get to and from the island, which is only a couple minutes from shore. You can also use the boat to go fishing, go out to eat, or sightseeing during day light hours on the gulf side. You park your car on our easement (a driveway on shore) with your boat dock only feet from your car.

IS THERE ELECTRICITY AND RUNNING WATER ON THE ISLAND?
This is a rustic private tropical island. Your power comes from a gas generator and your water comes from tanks on the houseboat. The refrigerator is powered by solar panels. Besides the bathroom facilities on the houseboat, there is a composting toilet on the island, which is similar to an outhouse.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING QUIET COVE KEY?
Quiet Cove Key rents from 3:00 pm Saturday to 9:00 am Saturday. The boat is for use during day light hours only. The island has WIFI, and the houseboat has cable TV.

WHAT IS ALL INCLUDED WITH THIS RENTAL?
On-shore: Designated parking spot with boat dock
Houseboat: 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, linens, towels and paper products provided. Kitchen and refrigerator are apartment sized.
Island: Covered shelters, gas grill, hammocks, kayaks, fire pit, boat dock

WHAT SURPRISES MIGHT WE HAVE?
The crystal clear waters around the island are visited by a variety of wildlife including dolphins, manatees, sting ray, lobster, crab, octopus, barracuda, parrot and angel fish, to name a few. Some of which are residents of the underside of the island. Snorkeling would be the best way to visit them. We also have the above water visitors and residents which would include roosting pelicans, great herons as well as some very friendly, vegetarian Iguana's.

DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS RARE VACATION OPPORTUNITY!
Area Information
You are in the family friendly town of Marathon, known as the heart of the Florida Keys. There are plenty of activities such as chartering a fishing boat, hiking in Curry Hammock State Park, visiting the Dolphin Research Center, sunbathing at Sombrero Beach, or relaxing at Sunset Park. You can also play golf and tennis at Key Colony Beach Resort as well as visiting the many coral reefs, sailing, parasailing, or renting a jet ski. If this island shows reserved on the calendar, call us anyway as we have other island options.
Nearby Restaurants
Upscale restaurants include Hideaway Cafe, Franks Grill and Burdines. Other great restaurants include Key's Fisheries (upstairs in the Tiki hut bar is my favorite at sunset), Sparky's Landing, King Seafood and Barracuda Grill. Castaway’s is a local’s favorite. There is also very affordable dining at Key Colony Inn and Panda Inn.
Transportation
A car is mandatory in the Keys, but there is a shuttle service through KWtransit. It's good for a day trip to Key West.

My family and extended family enjoyed room to relax, plenty of things to do (fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving), room enough to enjoy the serenity of peace and quiet, the luxury of easy access to shore, and exploring all the native wildlife and aquatic inhabitants in and around the island. Dan was great and immediately responded with solutions to our unique situations and was very accomodating and gracious! Loved it!
