Property description

This is a single family home has been totally renovated with new everything. Tiled floors throughout, large granite countertop, stainless steal appliances, decorative lighting, modern bathrooms, and a large wrap around balcony with comfortable patio furniture surrounded by romantic sheer curtains giving you a true resort feel. The home is open, bright, and warm. Sectional sofa is comfortable for watching netflix movies on a high definition 52 inch flat screen t.V. with surround sound. Kitchen area has a desk area where you can connect your computer to wireless internet for those days where you just got to get some work done. The master bedroom has a king size bed (firm memory foam mattress), flat screen TV, and small private bathroom. The second bedroom has two comfortable bunk-beds. Bottom bunks are large enough for adults. Bedroom has t.V. with VHS VCR. The home is on a deep canal ocean side (no issue for large sail boats), 75 foot private concrete dock with electricity and water. Rental includes dockage for one large boat. You can relax on the hammock under the coconut palms trees while the others in your party clean the catch of the day on our two fish cleaning tables. The neighbors are wonderful and the home is walking distance to everything you can need (deli, liquor store, movie theatre, kmart, winn dixie, publix, walgreens, home depot, and park! Perfect for teens that can't drive but like their independence walking or riding bike by themselves to the park, movies, or shops. Family reunion? Inquire about nearby home which is also available for rental. Rental License PLR00336.

Brand new central AC installed June 2015.

Although marathon is located about midway on the keys chain, it has just about anything you would need during your stay, including marathon airport (charter flights from Miami) and hospital in case you need medical attention during your stay. Key west is just a 45 minutes away by car. Charter fishing service is also available from your dock. One of the best surprises when i bought this home was sombrero beach. This beach is only 5 minutes away by car and maybe 15 minute bike ride. It has everything you could ask for in a beach. White sand, coconut palms, private clean bathrooms, two volleyball courts, children play area with grass, and the beautiful view of the ocean. My fifteen year old loves the marathon community park, which has its own x-tream skateboard park . This park has four tennis courts, a tennis wall, a combination hockey/basketball court (3 courts), two little league fields, and two soccer fields. There is also, two shuffleboard courts, two bocce ball courts, a batting cage, concession stand, amphitheater, picnic areas, and restrooms. If you want to take a dip in a pool just go to sunset grill and raw bar where they have one of the largest pool in the keys overlooking the ocean at the seven mile bridge. Watch the sunset from here while at the bar listening to margaritaville. Enjoy some of the best fishing and diving available in the world. Sombrero reef is 4.5 miles away from your dock. It offers a spectacular reef and is just minutes away by boat ride. The seven mile bridge is probably the premiere location for the greatest game fish in Florida waters, the tarpon. The best part is that you will get top quality at a rate that can’t be beaten. Look us up in facebook. Do a search for Mariella Marathon Keys.

Marathon is in the Middle Florida Keys where you get the real Keys flavor. Home is close to all the amenities you need and are so use to.


Owner info

About the owner: Hello Prospective Guests, I myself am a frequent user of VRBO. Have used it many times during our annual ski vacation trips. VRBO never failed me so now it is my turn to rent to people just like me.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
THe Florida Keys is truly a place to enjoy the great outdoors. It all starts with the drive from Miami (2 hrs) . Do it at day light. When you start getting closer to Marathon, the ocean water begans turning clear turquoise and you know you have reached the keys. Marathon has the best of both worlds, the convenience of facilities that we are use to having (stores, fast food, hospital, etc) while keeping with the laid back feel of the Florida Keys.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My Place is modern and at the same time comfortable and has that keys feel. It has an open atmosphere with two large sliding glass doors overlooking the large furnished balcony. The balcony overlooks the canal and coconut palm trees. The white curtains in the balcony give you a true resort feel. The two staircase offer convenience to the front of the home as well as the back and the best thing is that this is a house on a large lot so you have your privacy.
