Marathon house description

Have your own Paradise in this neat canal-front half duplex on the ocean side, off Boot Key. Your boat is right outside of your sliding glass door, 10 steps away. Head straight out to Sombrero Light for some of the best snorkeling in the world, go fish, and afterwards watch the pelicans dive for handouts when you clean your catch at the fish-cleaning table on the dock. Sunsets at the 7 Mile Bridge are only a few minutes away.

The living area is airy and open, with an unusual wood cathedral ceiling which pleasantly contrasts with the tile floors. If you're not too tired from fishing, the TV offers expanded and movie channels.

The kitchen area is well-organized and fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave and baker-broiler. There's even a stock of herbs and spices for those moments of culinary creativity.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with a duel control air mattress, and the second bedroom is a quiet retreat with full size bed. The leather sofa in the living room offers yet another fold-out queen size bed. The full bath is conveniently located between the two bedrooms with a second door that provides direct access to the master bedroom.

Washer and dryer are in a separate utility room accessed from the dock.

Bring your own boat(s) or rent one locally, there is plenty of deep-water dock space, no need to worry about low tides here.

Did you say pool?
The Sunset Grill about a mile away has a large, beautiful pool available to the public, at the Seven Mile Bridge. It is also the perfect location to view winter sunsets and look for that elusive “green flash” just as the sea swallows the last rays of the sun.

Owner lives next door and availale to take care of any of your needs immediately.
