Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I grew up fishing the Florida Keys. My wife and I purchased this home as a week-end get away. I am a licensed Captain and use this location as my charter / tournament fishing headquarters. I am available for walk-on charters. If you would like a crash course on fishing the keys to jump start your fishing / diving vacation please let me know. I offer BIG discounts or package deals to my renters. Capt. Kevin

Our home is located equidistant from the Seven-Mile bridge and Vaca cut. Being on the Bay side gives you easy access to the best lobster diving and snapper fishing in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Marathon has the nicest beach in the Florida Keys and many of the best Restaurants as well. There are many marine and bait & tackle stores making it the most convenient Island for the fishing and boating enthusiast.
