Description from owner

Spend your Vacation right on the Ocean in this 2 bedroom 2 bath Ocean Cottage! We are ground level, located in Marathon in Little Venice, which has an authentic quaint fishing village feel. It's all about the Ocean over here! This home is a corner property with water on two sides, we have 180 degrees of unobstructed Oceanfront views, that's 110' of Oceanfront dock, with a very long and wide 80' dock and deepwater canal on the second side, so you have two sides of waterfront property with Serious Big Dockage. There is parking on property for two vehicles and one boat trailer. One of the spaces is a covered carport. 100% Oceanfront views from the Kitchen, dining, and Livingroom. The Master bedroom has a king bed, full bath, Guest room has twin beds and full bath. This is a legal rental unit for six people, however, there are only beds for four guests! Our living room has an enormous comfy couch with two reclining chairs, so you can all enjoy watching the Hi Def TV, or listen to the stereo and Ipod. We're air conditioned and heated, new appliances and laundry. Our laundryroom is also on ground level and is a great place to leave your dive or fishing gear safely locked up. Large bait freezer for you serious fisherpeople, along with a large fish cleaning table.

It is 4 minutes to deepwater access on the Ocean or Gulf. You can fish right from our docks, or just watch the manatees, birds and sealife go by. There is plenty of room for sunset watching and entertaining in our huge oceanside yard and patio.

Non-smoking, and pet considered!

Beachtowels, coolers, lawn chairs, gas barbeque, everything you need for your home away from home! Come on down!!!!!

“Better than home!!”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2015

Our week-long stay in this ocean-front cottage was BETTER than being home. From the moment we checked in, to the boat docking, and the amazing views for our morning coffee, my husband and I wished we could call the place home forever!! We established an amazing rapport with the neighbors, which made our stay even more homelike. We had a wonderful week, and hope to come back next year!

Owner's reply: I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself! It is truly a magical home. Thank you for your review, see you soon!

“Comfortable home with a beautiful ocean view!”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2014

This home was so comfortable and had a view that looks like a postcard picture! My family felt right at home and it definitely had all the comforts of home as well. In addition, we were conveniently located near kayak and bike rentals, fishing charters, grocery stores, and quaint local shops! We truly enjoyed our stay in this home and in Marathon! Thank you!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again soon!

“OUT OF THIS WORLD!”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

Unbelievable...from the panoramic views to the never ending marine life right at our dock. What a time my family and I had during our recent stay. The owner met me during check in to welcome us and make sure we had what we needed and answered any questions on the spot. Cottage was very clean and stocked. Comfortable beds and great water pressure. Large capacity washer and dryer with a view of the waterfront while doing laundry. Location was very peaceful. I felt like it was my home and very proud to have quests visit and entertain. We fished everyday and evening. Our last day we encountered the friendliest manatee and had an octopus climbing the dock wall. We will definitely be spending a future vacation back here. Definitely a home away from home!

Owner's reply: We are so happy you enjoyed our wonderful home!! See you soon!

“Oceanfront Cottage Review”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Oceanfront Cottage. From the minute we walked through the doors we knew we had made a wise choice. Very clean and inviting. The house made us instantly feel like we were home away from home. Warm and inviting, cozy and comfortable. The only thing we needed to do was put groceries in the refrigerator. Plenty of towels and bedding and a laundry room to keep everything clean. All you could ask for and a view that couldn't be beat. I love to take pictures and I can tell you the sunrises were as spectacular as the sunsets. The ocean is right outside your door. My husband loves to fish and he could wake in the morning and have a cup of tea while he dropped his line into the water. The location is great as you are near a variety of places where you can experience everything from Snorkeling to Charter Boat fishing. A short drive to Key West will provide you with plenty of nightlife activities as well. It's great to take a vacation and have everything at hand. No need to worry about forgetting anything as it's all provided. I really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Owner's reply: I'm so glad you loved my Ocean Cottage, it is my favorite place in the world to be! Please come back to visit us again soon! Alice

“BEAUTIFUL OCEANFRONT VIEW”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2013

I just got back from spending a wonderful week in this lovely home. The house is well equip with everything needed. The home is very comfortable.....felt like being home...but better. The house is well designed to give you a great view of the ocean and canal. I especially enjoyed the outside sitting area overlooking the ocean....a great spot to enjoy my morning coffee, etc. My husband also enjoyed being able to catch fish from the back/ocean side too. The area is convenience with nearby stores and boat rentals if needed. We rented a boat while there and had a blast. It was also very convenience to just jump onto the boat from the house and take off to go sight seeing & catch some fish. I highly recommend this house but will need to be careful of your young children &/or pets being it is a corner end waterfront home. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I prefer having a pool to cool off in but it is still a great place to stay at. Thank-you Alice for letting me & family stay in your lovely oceanfront home. :o)

Owner's reply: I'm so glad you enjoyed your Stay! It is a truly magical location and I love every moment that I spend there. I hope you can visit again soon! Alice

“Amazing Accommodations”

Reviewed 8 May 2012

My fishing buddies and I stayed here during the first week of May 2012. A perfect place to stay if you have a boat (or not). Access to the Gulf or Ocean is just minutes away via the Vaca Cut. You can fill the livewell with pinfish caught off the home's dock. The house is very clean and fully equipped and the views of the ocean from the private backyard are priceless. The neighbors are friendly, too. We are already booked for May 2013. If I can make one suggestion, it would be a picnic table for the yard.

Owner's reply: We're so glad you enjoyed our Ocean Cottage Bill, and can't wait to see you again next year! Yes, we keep looking for an outdoor table that won't blow away in high winds during the summer, thanks for the suggestion. Oh, maybe I'm being too picky, because I don't want it obstructing even an inch of that beautiful view!!! Come on back and help us choose it! Fishin's good year 'round!

“Fantastic View!”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2012

This house fantastic throughout! Lots of dockage for boats. Nice furnishings. Fish the ocean 20 ft from the house. Located about a half mile from Vaca Cut. Close to shopping center, airport, restaurants. Great tarpon fishing at Bahia Honda bridge.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks enjoying this wonderful property. Reading the description of this property and viewing the pictures just does not show the true beauty and peacefulness of this property. I would highly recommend this rental without hesitation.

The owner is very pleasant, accommodating and easy to communicate with. My questions and emails were answered promptly.

If you are looking for a great location, a nice clean and modern home, and a beautiful ocean view - you've found it with this property.
