Marathon condo description

Pelican's Perch is an upscale, luxury townhouse condo less than 16 yards from the water of the Gulf of Mexico. 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. This limit is strictly enforced. Free high speed Wi-Fi Internet access is provided. The master bedroom features a king-size bed with an open water view. The second bedroom has queen and twin beds. 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.



Renters have use of 3 bikes (2 rental type bikes and 1 kids BMX bike) full beach gear such as beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, toys, fishing gear, pool noodles, and some snorkeling gear. Board games are included inside the condo.

                          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.

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.
