About the owner: Engineer and High School teacher. We are a married couple who enjoys fishing, traveling, good music (ie New Orleans Jazz Fest), cooking (ie fish on the BBQ)
We work hard, then escape from the real world and go to the Florida Keys as often as we can.
Why the Owner Chose Grassy Key: We invested in our rental-units after visiting Florida Keys for 20 years. We decided that Marathon, Grassy Key, is the ultimate Keys location. People are nice and relaxed, it is the place you go when you want to get away from the 'rat-race'. Fishing, Lobstering and snorkeling is phenomenal. While Islamorada and Key West are fun places to visit, you will find the Marathon area more quiet, it's the best part of the Florida Keys. Key West is only an hour drive away, take a day-trip.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Enjoy our private setting. Listen to the birds, gaze at the stars at night, mingle with friendly people who are in the Keys to have a relaxing and good time.
