About the property

From the moment that you arrive you will be swept away by the views this house offers. Perfect for a family, or friends traveling together - this house is your home away from home. It is expertly decorated to allow you and your family to relax and enjoy the sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. The private 120ft. dock will allow you to explore the ocean as you please. The area is great for fishing, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking. When you are not busy exploring the ocean you can relax in the private pool. Marathon is just a short 50 mile drive from the heart of Key West.

This is a sister house to the house next door, Listing #770357. The difference in the two is that the #770357 listing has 2 1/2 baths, sleeps 6, and has a 60ft. dock, and rents Saturday to Saturday. We use the same housekeeper for both houses and she can only prepare one in the window of time from check out to check in, therefore, this listing rents Sunday to Sunday and listing #770357 rents Saturday to Saturday.

Amazing house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week there with another couple and it was an amazing stay. There is nothing I would have done differently in the house. The pool was clean and perfectly tempered. The house was newly remodeled and screamed Florida Keys beach house. Perfectly located 1.15 hours for Key West and 40 mins from Islamorada. The canal in the back and the ocean in front made the view from everywhere perfect.

We can’t wait to stay again next year !!

Slice of Heaven Just Waiting for You to Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this amazing property and were immediately taken in with the beautiful views, decor and amenities. This is truly your one stop shop vacation paradise in the Keys....don't hesitate to book this amazing property. Publix is just a few blocks away for your grocery needs and Key West is a short hour trip South. Everything was thought of by Steve & Janet with this home! The home is beautifully decorated and maintained; everything is basically brand new in the home and ready for your enjoyment. There is a private in-ground pool which is both chilled and heated for your comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need during your stay including an exterior gas BBQ grill. The beds.....well if it was not for the amazing views you may never get out of these beds which are super comfortable! We have 3 young children ages 10 and under and they enjoyed every minute of our stay. There is even a Fish Light installed off the sea wall which attracts so much marine life; truly amazing to just sit and watch with a cold drink. If you have a boat; this is your home as it has ample dock/sea wall space to accommodate your vessel and easy access to the open waters. Just look at the photos of this property (even more amazing in person) and book your amazing vacation stay will not be disappointed. And for those who have large groups of families and friends joining you on vacation, the home right next door has the same owners and is just as beautiful; book both of them for your stay!

The house was absolutely perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is dreamy! You have an ocean view on one side and canal view on the other side. The interior has been flawlessly decorated by Janet and Steve. The colors are restful and inviting, it flows effortlessly from the kitchen to the bedrooms. The laundry room is nice and large with plenty of storage for those things you want out of the way. Each bedroom is large with plenty of closet space and windows placed in perfect locations for ocean viewing! Each room also has a large flat screen TV (At least 55 inches, I think), but we did not watch but only one time during our stay. We just could not keep our eyes open once we went to bed! The beds are extremely comfortable!

The kitchen overlooks the canal side and is set up in a way that makes meal prepping hassle free. The dining table seats 6 easily.

The living room is large with a larger than life (I think close to 65 inches?) flat screen TV. There is plenty of extremely comfortable seating for 6-8 adults. We joked and called the couch the "Valium Couch" because every time we sat down on the couch we went to sleep. There is an extra room (sun room) off of the living room with a very nice table for eating breakfast with 4 more chairs to sit, relax and take in the views!

I truly cannot say enough great things about this house! It was absolutely PERFECT!

The house next door is also owned by the same couple and both these houses rented together would make a wonderful large family vacation retreat!

Janet and Steve were very helpful and we very much enjoyed renting from them! There were no hassles!

Thank you!
