Marathon house description

Relax and enjoy your vacation with a specatacular waterfront view - look out over a crystal clear lagoon out onto the Gulf of Mexico. This full duplex Waterfront Home with 75' of deepwater dockage - you get two great homes for one low price, 4 Bedrooms and 4 Baths is great for large groups looking for a quiet place to relax, fish, kayak and swim. Take a dip in this crystal clear lagoon free of the noise and congestion you'd encounter on many of the canal homes. Or grap one of our free ocean kayaks, your fins and a mask and explore the crystal clear Gulf just a few paddles from this home.

With this full duplex home you get side-by-side 2 bedroom, 2 bath homes. This is a really nice set up when vacationing with 2 families or groups with varying activity levels because it allows everyone to hang together during the day, but retreat to their own place at the end of the night when they are ready to wind down.

REGARDLESS you will get, gorgeous crystal clear, open water views of the Gulf of Mexico, incredible sunsets. Deep Water Dockage for your boat with easy access in and out, snorkel, fish or dive right from the dock.

We also provide kayaks and beach cruiser bikes to guests at no additional charge. These toys will come in handy, as this is not your typical canal home that are rented throughout Marathon. This one has open water, privacy and an un-obstructed view. This property overlooks a large water cove, deepest point is 25 feet. So much marine life to enjoy right from the dock, including tarpon tailing, manatees, rays and porpoises and snapper. Beyond the cove is the Gulf of Mexico, to the east is Vaca Cut ocean access and to the west 7 mile bridge ocean access. Bring your boats and jet skis because there is also plenty of room for them along with your vehicles and trailers.

This property sleeps up to 10 people in beds. There is one king, one queen, 4 twins, and a full pull out sofa. Fully stocked with cookware and linens. High-speed wireless internet, flat screen TV complete with premium cable. Just bring your boat, dive gear & tackle! If you don't have a boat, we'll guide you to boat rentals and they can deliver one right to your dock.

Pilots may fly-in and enjoy Paradise while in The Keys! Tournament fishing boats welcome, boat ramp near by and park your boat trailers on this property.

Experience the Keys laid back lifestyle and enjoy the GREAT Water views!

Feel free to call or e-mail any questions you may have...our goal is to make your vacation and stay, wonderful, relaxing and memorable.

(note: small pets will be considered for an additional deposit/fee)

Parties of 6 or less can rent a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath home at roughly HALF PRICE. For rates and availability, go to our other vacationhomerentals web site and visit ad #46238

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Semi-professional fisherman, hockey player, full-time software salesman, and professional Dad and Husband

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
This property is in a is private location and offers one of the best open water views in Marathon - this is not your typical canal front home. A crystal clear deepwater lagoon that's up to 25' deep at the center allows for plenty of dockage and easy boat access to open water with 75' of waterfront dockage. Or just relax with a great view or fish and dive right from the dock. The property also has plenty of room for your cars and trailers. It also has the flexibility to be rented as either a 4 bedroom 4 bath as advertised or economically as a 2 bedroom 2 bath for smaller parties. We love to fish, boat and dive and there in no better place in the States to do this other than the Florida Keys. We were sick of the over-fished waters and crowded streets of South Florida so we went south - all the way south to the Keys. Marathon is centrally located to these great outdoor activities plus has two of the nicest beaches in the Keys nearby, has great restaurants, parks, activities and shopping and is a short drive to destinations like Key West, John Pennecamp State Park, and offers some of the best access to aquatic wildlife, beautiful reefs and other offshore destinations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the great open water view, easy open water access, great dockage....? This is a full duplex meaning you get two beautifully decorated and very comfortable homes on the same property. This is a great set-up when vacationing with large groups or extended family with varying energy levels. Hang out together all day but retreat to your own private residence at the end of the day - or party together - it's your choice because it's all yours when you're vacationing at this great property. All the amenities of home. Two full kitchen with custom cabinets and granite counter, full dining areas, comfortable couches, flat screen TVs, premium cable, high-speed wireless internet access, and phones. It's of course stocked with all the kitchen ware, linens, and towels. I also offer kayaks and bikes for your recreation
