This 1,700 square foot (including wrap-around porch), custom decorated condominium offers a unique ocean panoramic view. Split floor plan has centralized living area. Fully-equipped kitchen. Large master bedroom with king-size bed, private 3/4 bath, and walk-in closet.

Relax and enjoy a cool drink on the wrap-around screened terrace overlooking Faro Blanco Lighthouse and Marina. Visit and savor dinner at any of the many area restaurants. Sunbathe or swim at nearby Sombrero Beach... only 3 miles from the resort.

Marina Use: Daily and monthly boat dockage is available. Separate arrangements for a slip and trailer parking can be made through the abutting resort. Trailer parking is free. However, boat launching is not available on site but nearby.

Guest Discount: Condo guests enjoy a 15% discount on food and beverages at the Yacht Club Restaurant and bar.

Arrange fishing charters for deep sea fishing off nearby Seven Mile Bridge or snorkel on the area coral reefs. Less than an hour's drive is popular Key West and it's about a mile walk to Seven Mile Bridge to view spectacular sunsets!

This unit is appealing to non-smokers as we ask that smoking be limited to the terrace. Sorry, no pets are allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Gary was born and raised in Minnesota and lived for many years in Michigan.. He moved to Florida in 2006 and has been enjoying the sunshine and beautiful waters of Miami Beach and the Florida Keys. Faro Blanco is a special place with excellent water views, lighthouse and the activity of a bustling marina (soon to be renovated).

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
I chose the Florida Keys for a vacation destination for the past 10 years so it only seemed natural to want a permanent place of my own in the Keys. It is centrally located with great views, restaurants, activities, etc. While different from Key West with a small-town feel, Marathon remains close enough to visit the 'Conch Republic' when. and if, desired.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I thoroughly enjoy walking along old Seven Mile Bridge on the way to Pigeon Key and searching for sealife in the shallow aqua/blue waters. Spotted rays, dolphin, shark, sea turtles and a huge variety of tropical fish are there - if you are lucky enough to see them! Marina is available for boat dockage and trailer parking on a first come, first serve basis. Trailer parking is free. However, boat launching is not available on site but nearby. Guest Discount: Condo guests enjoy a 15% discount on food and beverages at the Yacht Club Restaurant and bar at the resort.
