Property description

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is ideal for Winter Guests and available to rent January thru May. It is also available over Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Easter Holidays. As well as several weeks through the Summer. It is a ground level home in the 'Little Venice' area of Marathon, a perfect retreat for one or two couples. The home is in a quiet neighborhood off US1 and has the charm and 'old keys' style that is becoming hard to find. It is beautifully maintained and comfortable. Also steps from our Conch Cottage is a canal side bench to sit and enjoy the view.

The home is fully furnished and tastefully decorated... just unpack your suitcase and enjoy the easy living in the 'Heart of the Florida Keys'. This Conch Cottage has a backyard gazebo which offers a tropical shady spot to relax, read a book or entertain. There is also a private patio off the kitchen for Al Fresco dining complete with a gas grill. This cottage includes a nicely fenced yard which provides lots of privacy.

The interior has tile floors for easy care with carpet in the bedrooms. The Master bedroom has its own on suite with shower. Steps from the Guest bedroom and convenient to the living area is a second bath with shower. Both bedrooms have Queen beds, hanging closets and additional dressers for all your clothing. The house has wall unit air conditioning, a stack able washer and dryer and Comcast cable and (wi-fi) high-speed internet service.

The Florida Keys is a great destination with so much to do. Key West is only an hour away and Islamorada is a 45 minute drive. Fishing, biking, kayaking, boating, running, walking on the old 7 mile bridge, sunset watching, snorkeling, diving and plenty of socializing too!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: The Owners of this property, Cora & Drew, met in the Florida Keys 12 years ago and can't imagine living any other place but Marathon. Cora was born and raised in Ogden, Utah and Drew is originally from City Island, New York. Both love everything that this little piece of paradise offers from boating, fishing, lobstering, diving and so much more. Drew is the owner/operator of a marine canvas business and Cora assists as his Office Manager. Cora also is an Aquacise Instructor at the Cabana Club in Key Colony Beach and a ZUMBA Instructor for Marathon Zumba Fitness. Both are very involved in the Marathon community.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
Marathon at Mile Marker 53 is in the Heart of the Florida Keys. World class sport fishing, lobstering, beautiful beaches, boating with easy access to both the gulf and the ocean. Key West is just over 50 miles South and Miami just over two hours North.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Conch Cottage was built in 1957 when the Florida Keys and especially Marathon was growing. It has the charm and comfort of the old Keys with all the modern amenities of today.
