Property description

'Imagine paradise in a
completely secluded location
where there are no human neighbors
on either side of you...'

'Imagine your backyard
is the Gulf of Mexico... '

We are just 5 minutes away from Marathon. Marathon has lots of restaurants, Sombrero Beach, Curry Hammock State park and Bahia Honda beach. There are bike/walking trails too. There is a Publix and Wynn Dixie to go grocery shopping. The Dolphin Research Center is 3 doors down from the house and THE WRECK BAR & GRILL is next door to our home as well. The Turtle Hospital is another wonderful place to take the kids.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live in Indiana and purchased this home as a rental property. We have decorated it and furnished it as if we lived there ourselves. We have purchased high end appliances, mattresses and linens. We are professionals who own companies and know how important customer service is to everyone.

Why the Owner Chose Grassy Key:
This property caught our eye because there is alot of privacy in the back yard. You feel like you are engulfed in nature. You will be close to Marathon and alot of activities however when you are at the house you feel secluded and private.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The fact that this house is on such a private setting is what really appealed to us. On both sides no one can build a house because it is protected wetlands. Grassy Key is very laid back and quiet, yet we are an hour away from Key West where there is always something going on. Lots of shopping, great restaurants, bars and wonderful sunsets. We are less than 5 minutes from Marathon where you have two fairly large grocery stores, restaurants and bars. Lots of marinas where you can rent boats and lots of places to charter fishing trips. The unique feel of the Florida Keys is like no other place in the US. You will really be in paradise when you stay here!
