Marathon cottage description

Relax and Unwind ~ Sunrise views from screened porch overlooking the Ocean
The Golden Plum, Marathon Florida Keys Vacation rental home is the place to stay if you want peace, tranquility and calming water views. Located at the mouth of a canal and open water of the Atlantic Ocean, Golden Plum provides open water views and tropical ambience.

Golden Plum is also a short walk or bike ride to the famed Sombrero Beach where you can continue to relax and unwind. Sombrero Beach is a lovely sandy beach with bath rooms, a fishing pier, volleyball courts and a playground. Best of all this is all FREE!!

Golden Plum is an open floor plan half duplex with the living area open to the kitchen. The kitchen is updated and boasts granite counters, microwave, stove and fridge. All cookware and dishes are also provided.

The master bedroom is equipped with a King sized bed, flat screen TV and a full en suite bathroom.

The second Bedroom has a queen bed and views of the water.

Guests all agree the outdoor space is the best at Golden Plum. You can relax and enjoy the stunning sunrises over the ocean in the screened porch or from your private hammock.

This home also comes with Two Electric Scooters!!

Fishermen will enjoy the concrete dock, nearby boat ramp, fish cleaning table and gas BBQ grill.
Golden Plum offers boat dockage and trailer parking. Due to the location of the home, an extremely low tide may restrict larger boats from entering or leaving the canal. Please make sure to check the tide schedule before bringing a boat over 25ft.

Other amenities to enjoy are the cable TV, wireless internet, washer and dryer (which are located in a closet room on the porch) and parking for up to 2 cars and a trailer.

Like all of Coco Plum Vacation rental homes, Golden Plum will be ready for your arrival and supplied with fresh sheets, towels, a starter kit of paper products, soap and toiletry products.

For something to do when you are not enjoying your home guest enjoy a visit to the nearby world famous Turtle Hospital or the Dolphin Research Center. Or perhaps you can take a day trip to Key West and enjoy famed sunsets and street performances at Mallory Square.

Locally you will find abundant dive shops, restaurants, bars, fishing charters and snorkel trips.

                          the Atlantic Ocean reveal a marine wilderness comprised of an

                          extensive spur-and-groove coral complex and numerous well-developed

                          patch reefs. Each reef is populated by a vast array of Caribbean

                          tropical fish and invertebrates, with the fascinating addition of both

                          modern and historical shipwrecks to complete the tremendous sport dive

                          appeal of the region.

                          WRECKS AND REEFS.............

                          * Adelaide Baker - This historic shipwreck features a pair of huge

                          stacks in only 25 feet of water, a vivid reminder of the days when

                          steamships plied the Florida Keys.

                          * Sombrero Reef - This traditional favorite of the Marathon dive

                          portfolio is marked by a 140-foot lighted tower. Coral canyons and

                          archways provide refuge for schools of grunt and snapper while

                          solitary barracuda appear to stand sentinel.

                          * Coffin's Patch - This is not a single reef but a conglomerate of six

                          distinct patch reefs, each with a unique identity defined by a

                          predominant coral species. For example, at Pillar Coral Patch dozens

                          of intact pillar coral heads thrust their fuzzy polyps to snare

                          passing nutrients. Snorkelers will especially appreciate the shallow

                          elkhorn forests found throughout Coffin's Patch in less than 20 feet

                          of water.

                          * Delta Shoals - Here a vast network of coral canyons fan seaward from

                          a sandy shoal, offering wonderful opportunities for both diving and

                          snorkeling amid elkhorn, brain, and star coral heads.

                          * The Thunderbolt - This 188-foot ship is the queen of the Marathon

                          wreck fleet. Sunk intentionally as a dive attraction on March 3, 1986,

                          she now sits perfectly upright in 115 feet of water. Her

                          superstructure is coated with colorful sponge, coral, and hydroid,

                          providing refuge and sustenance to large angelfish, jacks, and a

                          variety of deep-water pelagic creatures.
