Marathon condo description

'Ellie's Escape' (Unit 28) is an efficiency condominium at Ocean Isles Fishing Village in Marathon, Florida, the 'Heart of the Florida Keys.' Marathon is approximately halfway down the Keys, about an hour and a half drive from Key West. Ocean Isles is a quiet, gated, oceanfront complex with 126 small condo units, and it appeals primarily to adult vacationers. Amenities include a heated Olympic sized pool that sits 20' above the ocean affording a breathtaking view of both sunrise and sunset, a scenic fishing dock available to renters, a shuffleboard court, a coin laundry (at the pool!) and a recreation building with full kitchen facilities and a big screen TV room. There's a 24-hour Walgreens right across the Overseas Highway/US 1, and a number of great dining and/or take-out spots within easy walking distance.

Unit 28, like most of the units at Ocean Isles, is approximately 350 sq. ft. inside, and it has a covered deck (with BBQ grill) out back. It has just undergone a complete remodel, so nearly all the furniture, appliances and linens are new. There's a queen size bed, a full bath w/shower, a color TV w/cable, and a fully equipped kitchen. Ellie's Escape is fully licensed and inspected (City of Marathon PLR# 2014-00121), so all required safety equipment is on site and up to date. Also like most of the 126 units at Ocean Isles, Unit 28 does not have an ocean view, but the panoramic oceanfront, complete with Tiki huts and abundant seating, is only a short stroll away.

There are many full-time residents, and so it is important to note that Ocean Isles is NOT a hotel/resort, and pets are prohibited. While the on site manager is friendly and helpful within reason, she is employed by the owners, and her job description does not include waiting on our renters. We, however, are at your disposal, just up the road, should you experience unforeseen problems of any kind. State and local laws prohibit owners from renting their condos for less then one week at a time, so weekly and monthly seasonal rates are available upon request. For more information call Ellie at the listed phone number or send her an email inquiry.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I owned and operated my own hearing aid center in New York for 30 years before retiring to the Florida Keys. I love it here in Paradise!

              Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
              Ocean Isles was our 'toe-hold in the Keys,' and we came down from New York whenever we could get away, discovering wonderful new things to do on every visit. We retired to Ocean Isles Fishing Village some years later, eventually purchasing a home just north of Marathon. We love that Key West is close....but not too close!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Marathon has a little of eveything great the Keys has to offer, and Ellie's Escape is the perfect place to return to after enjoying local destinations like the Dolphin Research Center, Sombrero Beach, the Marathon Cinema, the Marathon Community Theater, the Sunset Grille, the 7-mile Bridge, the Turtle Hospital, the Crane Point Museum, etc.
