Description from owner

Newer waterfront Keys home with wide open view of the Gulf of Mexico. 3 Bedroom 3 bath, half duplex home with private pool, dock with great amenities - perfect for three couples or a family. Great location that's walk-able to the 7-Mile bridge and some of Marathon's best restaurants and bars. Incredible open water view for great sunsets. For fisherman and divers, the best possible boating access for both the Gulf and the Atlantic activities – save huge on time and fuel. Fabulous views of the open water from the living, dining and kitchen areas and porches. Relax on the dining deck overlooking the pool and Gulf, a great spot to toast the sunset. The master bedroom on the 3rd level has panoramic views of the bridge and the open water. The cut in boat basin is perfect for most boating needs. Ladder access to the water for ease of swimming/snorkeling. Want freshwater swimming instead? You can't beat the unit's private swimming pool as a great spot to cool off and enjoy the open water views - 3 outdoor decks plus a waterfront pool patio.

Tile floors throughout the living areas, carpet in the bedrooms. All bedrooms with private bathroom with roman tub shower.

Beautiful well-appointed kitchen, stainless steel appliances and all the cookware and dinnerware for that special dinner.

“What a great vacation!”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2017

The house was just as pictured. Swimming in the gulf and canoeing was great. Waking up to that beautiful view every morning was wonderful. It's centrally located and close to everything. Definitely would stay again.

Had a wonderful stay here for 7 days. House is clean and well maintained. I was staying by myself and it was perfect. There are 3 good size bedrooms, 2 have their own bath. I felt the actual livingroom area would be cramped if you had more than two people...however, its Florida, you'll be outside most of the time anyway. Everything was perfect - people were great to deal with from booking with the owners thru to the local contact who handles any issues while you are there. It was a perfect place for some me time!

“Marathon Paradise”

What a wonderful stay we had at this beautiful home on the water. Everything we needed for the stay was provided, the home was beautifully furnished, pool over looking the gulf, kayaking, bikes, fishing right off the property & swimming in the warm gulf waters, close shopping & restaurants near by. Sunsets were amazing!!! We plan on coming back every year!!

“Best Location! Best Price!”

Reviewed 27 May 2015

We visited September 2014. My in-laws have been going to the Keys for as long as they have been in Florida, and I'm so thankful they have given me the experience of a lifetime there. Now that we have visited many times and even got married in Key West, I can say that this is my favorite spot to stay in the Keys so far. From the dock that is perfect for fishing, to the pool that is ideal for bobbing around, to the wonderfully clean interior, this place has enough room for at least 6. AT LEAST! If we had kids, I imagine this place might make me a little uneasy, just because it's SO waterfront, but as a childless adult couple, it works perfectly for our family visit. We are visiting again this September, and I've already counted down the days. The view/porch re-energizes ones soul in an instant. If you're looking for a place you can truly unwind and BE on vacation, this is the place to do it.

“Wonderful Vacation”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2015

We had a wonderful vacation. The owner of the home was in contact with us on our first day to ensure everything went smoothly as well as the on-site maint. person. She was a dream to work with!! Loved the home and look forward to booking it again next year!!

“Great location, wonderful hosts”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2014

We stayed here a week during Sept. 2014. The house was clean and the location was perfect for our needs. Easy drive down to Key West, and close to the Seven Mile bridge. We enjoyed having the bikes for rides to restaurants and site seeing. The small pool was really just right for our needs. The residence keepers did a good job of repairing our bike tire and answering questions. We did have some ants visit us, and I understand this is a typical problem for residences in the Keys. We would recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away for a peaceful stay. Places we recommend to visit are Robbie's Dock(Islamorada), Seadog fishing boat, the No Name Pub down on Big Pine Key(go there just before sunset and see lots of Key deer), Key West(Hemingway House and Mallory Square), snorkeling the Sombrero reef, and a stop by the World Wide Sportsman store on Islamorada. We highly recommend!

“Great view!”

We all had a great time at this home! Was in the center of the keys and made it very nice to go and explore the keys in either direction. The owner was good to work with and we would differently stay there again.

“Beautiful Gulf Home”

Reviewed 5 May 2014

This was a beautiful well cared for home and the location is fabulous. The food in the area is fantastic! Local, fresh fish and seafood. Caught fish and sharks right of the dock and the gas grill provided by the owner was put to good use. The house is big enough for a large family or 3 couples and each have their own bathroom so no one is inconvenienced! In addition the balconies overlooking the gulf were wonderful for enjoying the beautiful sunsets and the keys weather cant be beat. We all left with golden tans from our days by the pool. Although the pools in Florida are all typically small it was still very enjoyable for relaxing by with a cocktail and a good book. We love the Marathon area for the convenience to Key West while still being far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle. The owners were excellent in answering any questions we had and were very accommodating. Well worth the money vs. staying at a hotel. Highly recommended!!

“Awesome spot in Marathon”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2014

We have rented this house 2 times in the past 3 years. We rented it with 2 other couples and we all just love it. The privacy is great. The back yard is the Gulf. And it even comes with a private pool. Landscaping is very nice. There are bikes , kayak, grill, pool towels. Boat slip which accommodates our 22 foot boat with room to spare. Minutes from the 7 mile bridge for walking or fishing. Minutes to sombrero reef for some of the best snorkeling!

“Great location, great accommodations.”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

This property is very centrally located to the Seven Mile bridge, Bahia Honda State Park, dinning, boat rentals, and close to Key West. It was a great location for our family, as we did all of the above and more. The home was very spacious and well kept. Having the pool only a few steps from the door was awesome. My daughter and I used the bikes to go for our cocktails to the nearby pubs. Plenty of parking too if you bring a boat. We will definitely rent this again. The best feature, each bedroom had it's own bathroom.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Hi - We're the owners of this great home Gulf front home. This is a newer home we just purchased this week. It's an incredibly cool pool home on some of the best waterfront I've ever seen in the Keys. After looking for 9 months for a waterfront home, I told my wife as soon as we pulled in the driveway - "this is the one".

It had everything we were looking for: An Open Water View, a Pool, and a Modern design - fully furnished Tommy Bahama style.

We just love this home. Hopefully you agree and become our next guest.

Regards, Joe & Mary
