Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: My Family and I were raised in Tampa Fl. We are all water Fun-Natics and spent most of our weekends at the beach, on the boats, fishing, swimming, diving, lobstering and cruising back and forth to the Keys. We have spent many years vacationing in the Keys and enjoyed it so much that we decided to build a house there so that we could come and go as we please and possibly for future retirement.
Why the Owner Chose Marathon: We spent many years renting and researching the Keys from Key Largo to Key West and decided the best place to build was in Marathon. Marathon is located in the middle of the Keys and puts the rest of the Keys at easy reach. Marathon is one of the nicer and cleaner Communities so we built our house in 1991 and are now putting our home out for Vacation Rental on VRBO so that others could enjoy our beautiful home and share the excitement of the Keys. The house was designed with the perfect layout for relaxing or being together as a group.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The house is very relaxing and your boat is located right out back for easy loading and direct access to the Gulf and Atlantic Ocean. The fishing, diving, snorkeling and lobstering are great with nice dive sites such as 'Sombrero Reef' and 'The Thunderbolt' close by. Excellent restaurants are also close and are accessible by land or sea.
