WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THE VACATION RENTAL?
This vacation rental offers the best of both worlds: A comfortable shore home on the mainland in Marathon and a private island exclusively yours minutes away in the Gulf of Mexico. Your family or group will be the only people with access to Dolphin Jump Key for day time activities. Spend your days swimming, snorkeling, fishing, Kayaking, cooking out and return to your comfortable home at dusk to enjoy evening activities in the family friendly town of Marathon.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE HAVE STAY AT THE HOME ON SHORE?
Our rental license allows up to 6 people to stay at the home on shore. We have a queen bed in the master bedroom and a two doubles in the second. We also have a sofa in the living room.

HOW DO WE GET TO AND FROM THE ISLAND?
We provide you a boat to get to and from the island, which is only a couple minutes from shore. You can also use the boat to go fishing, go out to eat, or sightseeing during day light hours on the gulf side.

IS THERE ELECTRICITY AND RUNNING WATER ON THE ISLAND?
This is a rustic private island. There is no power or running water. There is a composting toilet, which is similar to an outhouse, but without the smell. The facilities are great for camping, as many people choose to do on the island overnight.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING THIS MAINLAND HOME WITH ACCESS TO PRIVATE ISLAND?
The 6th Ave home with exclusive access to Dolphin Jump Key rents from Saturday to Saturday. The boat is for use during day light hours only.

WHAT IS ALL INCLUDED WITH THIS RENTAL?
Home on 6th Ave: Private driveway, ample parking, gas grill, lounge chairs and table in the back yard, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, WIFI, and Cable TV. A 17’ 2012 Triumph boat with 2013 4-stroke motor.
Dolphin Jump Key: boat dock, kayaks, picnic table, gas grill, fire pit.

WHAT SURPRISES MIGHT WE HAVE?
The crystal clear waters around the island are visited by a variety of wildlife including dolphins, manatees, sting ray, lobster, crab, octopus, barracuda, parrot and angel fish, to name a few. Some of which are residents of the underside of the island. Snorkeling would be the best way to visit them. We also have the above water visitors and residents which would include roosting pelicans, great herons as well as some very friendly, vegetarian Iguana’s.
