The condo has 1,400 square feet of interior living area plus two large, 'L' shaped decks that wrap around the condo. Each deck has panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the heated pool on the other. A gas grill is provided. Local zoning rules allow 6 people to reside in the condo.

A queen-size bed pulls out from a sofa on the first floor. A large, eight boat dock and heated pool are a one minute walk away. The dock is located at the mouth of the Key Vaca Cut, providing good fishing & easy access to both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Dockage is first come first served with owners having priority. Backup dockage is available off site if needed.

                      The large heated pool is beautiful. The large dock is great for fishing and boating. Marinas, restaurants, and shopping are within walking distance. The closest beaches are about a mile away. The best local beach, Sombrero, is about a 5 minute drive. The condo is within a 5 mile drive of a movie theater, playhouse, several shopping centers with supermarkets, a K-Mart, more restaurants and gift shops. Also within 5 miles are two beaches, golf courses, and tennis and basketball courts. Drive another 10 miles and you will pass three more beaches.

                      A pedestrian and bike path runs in front of the complex all the way to the abandoned 7 Mile Bridge, about 6 miles away. This bridge extends 2 miles to Pigeon Key Historical Museum. The 2 mile span is reserved for fishing, walkers, and bicyclists. The entrance of the complex is also about 100 yards from the beautiful Key Colony Beach bike and walkway.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Our family is comprised of a public servant, retired French & Spanish teacher, Air Force Officer, and Spanish teacher. Our family was raised in Troy, Ohio where Jeff and Peg currently live.

                      Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
                      The views from the balconies are spectacular. The Gulf water is less than 16 yards away. The pool is beautiful. The dock on the Vaca Cut is a great place to fish. The condo is centrally located beetween Key Largo and Key West. The condo is spacious, 1,400 square feet of interior living area plus the two balconies. The condo is a lot better than it looks in pictures.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The two water front balconies are located on the east side of the building. This provides valuable afternoon shade while sitting on the decks. Even during the hot summer afternoons, the balonies are surprisingly comfortable with the shade and sea breeze.
