Marathon villa description

Relax in this peaceful, open-water, bird and wildlife sanctuary with private views of the State Park. From your living room sofa, only 9 feet from water's edge, you can watch fish swim and birds fly, or if you prefer, you may simply sit and enjoy the ebb and flow of the tide. In these environmentally friendly surroundings, you can observe, in a way you never have, marine life and native birds in unobstructed waters. Just off the property you can find nature trails leading to quiet beaches. The patio offers views of a back yard aquarium and the spectacular beauty of the Florida Keys. Launch our canoe or kayaks into this ecological paradise and paddle your way along easy-to-follow, marked mangrove trails. *

You will be very comfortable is these extremely clean and well-appointed surroundings. This property has brand-new everything: New Sealy Posturepedic beds, new furnishings and linens, iPad 2, wireless internet access, two flat-screen TV's with all premium movie channels and NFL Sunday Ticket, Saltillo tile floors, new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

*Includes canoe, kayaks and binoculars

We are a few minutes from Marathon and only 1-1/2 hours from the Miami International Airport, and an hour's drive to Key West, which makes this a centrally located vacation destination.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              You will have the opportunity to relax in an open water nature preserve, offering private views of the State Park. From your sea wall, watch the annual migration of east coast sea birds. From the patio watch spectacular sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean. Later in the day walk across the street and watch a breath-taking sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Or just hang out in the hammock and immerse yourself in the tranquility of this ecological paradise. Take morning or afternoon walks through the nature trails in the State Park and comb the beaches in undisturbed tranquility. Open your windows and enjoy the cooling ocean breeze. In the picnic area there is a tiki hut, barbecue and hammock. * All wildlife and scenic photos were taken off back patio.
