              The 7 mile bridge is less than 1 mile away

              Key West is less than an hour away and it is a blast going down for a day but more than one day in Key West (the locals call it Key Weird) is more than enough.....so we are close enough for fun but you have the luxury of the sanctuary and peace of the keys at our home.....

              We are sitting right on the Atlantic......water 30 feet from the back door.........and in 2 minutes you can also be in the Gulf of Mexico.......we are in the best location you could ever be in while in Marathon.........

              We are also extremely close to little Palm Island......a must visit while you are down here.

              There is a skate park and live theatre down here and you will love it.
