Grassy Key studio description

Two charming efficiencies located 50 yards from the Atlantic Ocean. Both are fully furnished with well-equipped kitchens and are decorated with a Caribbean flair. In the private frontyard, each unit has a gas-BBQ grill, a picnic table with large umbrela's for shade.

YARD:
Tropical Yard with native plants, Pineapples, Seagrape, Excora, Boganvilla, Croton, Hibiscus and an abundance of coconut palms gives you privacy. An assortment of butterflies and birds including tiny humming birds frequently visit our yard.

BOATING:
Optional dock is available in protected lagoon for boats up to 25 foot (extra charge $10/day, $50/week to home owners association).

FISHING:
This is the best place in the Florida Keys for fishing. Grassy Key has quick and easy access to fishing both on the Atlantic and Bay side (bridge for bay side access is 1/2 mile away). You can fish on the flats a couple hundred yards from your dock for Bonefish, Tarpon and small Sharks. Shallow reefs only a mile or two away offer Yellowtail, Mangrove snapper, and Mackerel in abundance. Gulf stream offers Dolphin, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, you name it. This is boating and fisherman’s paradise.

Lobster can be found under rocks and ledges on both Atlantic as well as Bay side.
Fishing from the Jetty is a lot of fun. There are small sharks, Tarpon, various Snappers and Grunt.

KAYAKING:
There is easy access to shallow water bordered by mangroves, and some small mangrove islands less than a mile from the marina. This is a great area to Kayak, you frequently see small baby sharks, tarpons, rays and a variety of tropical fish and birds. Duck Key island is about 2 miles from our dock.

SNORKLING :
Snorkeling is fantastic at numerous nearby reefs and state marine parks (Coffin Patch Reef, Sombrero Reef). Several Snorkel-Boats leave Duck-Key and Marathon for daily trips to the nearby reef.

A shared community pool is located a minute or two walking distance.

Jetty:
Jetty stretches a hundred yards out into the ocean, great for star gazing at night, sunbathing during the day or fishing day or night.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          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 try to 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-duplex 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.
