Amazing week, couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed the end of May 2018. Weather was iffy but our stay was amazing. The house had everything we needed. It was clean and bug free. A lot of work and money has been spent to make the house feel like the perfect keys home. The recently added underwater dock lights made it peaceful to sit out in the evenings and watch the fish. The owner was just a text away with any questions we had. A must ro visit and revisit!

Photos don't do justice.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really need to be replaced to prevent confusion. There is 1 King Suite, 1 King room and 1 Queen room. Two bathrooms total, two living rooms so there is plenty of room for everyone - especially if you have kids. It's not a mansion but had all the space we would have ever needed - besides who's going to sit around all day inside?

The outside area is a fishermans dream. Plenty of dock space, we brought a 26' Proline and had plenty of room to maneuver in the canal. There is fresh water on the dock, filet station and bait freezer.

Pool looks small but rest assure you don't need it any bigger. It was plenty for us. Parking is ample and location is great.

I was extremely pleased with this property.

Exactly what my family was looking for!!

The house and property was beautiful, the kids loved the pool. We rented a boat so it was really nice having the dock space in the canal. Will be back again soon.

Sombrero Beach

Turn left at Kmart on Sombrero Beach Road and you'll find one of the nicest beach in the Middle Keys. The Keys are not known for their beaches but Sombrero is a beautiful beach and it is right here in Marathon!

Marathon - Pigeon Key 7 Mile Bridge

A tiny five acre island just below the seven mile bridge was once the

home to the workers who built Henry Flagler's Railroad which connected the Keys to northern commerce. Enjoy the relatively long walk along the seven mile bridge to get out to the Island and take the Trolley ride back. Some of you may remember The famed Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Key in the movie "True Lies" featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Marathon - Museum and Nature Center

The most important historical and archaeological site in the Keys.

Evidence of Prehistoric Bahamian and Colombian tribes are found here.

On site you will also find The Museum of Natural History of the

Florida Keys, an archive of ancient artifacts found in the area and

The Children's Museum of the Florida Keys which is an indoor/outdoor

facility with ecological exhibits for the kids! Don't miss The Adderley home. Early immigrant George Adderley and his Family lived a simple life among tropical trees such as the lignumvitae whose hard wood was once used to make bowling balls. The family survived by making charcoal and gathering and selling sponges. One trail will take you to the Marathon Wild Bird Center which is a hospital for many of the native birds of the Marathon Area! Feeding the fish is also a hit with the kids with large resident Barracuda and Shark! And I have to mention Casa Iguana, the home to many species of Iguanas ranging from 3 to 6 feet long.

Marathon - Turtles

Turtle Hospital Educational Tour

Another can't miss experience is the Turtle Hospital Educational Tour

which many of our guests have included as a highlight of their

vacation. During the Tour you will learn of the many challenges facing

the Turtles in todays ocean waters and what we are doing to support

their existence now and into the future. Of course you'll also meet

Bubble-butt and many of their other residents and have a good time as


Price of admission includes an approximate 45 minute educational guide

of the hospital with a presentation and a 45 minute guide through the

sea turtle rehabilitation area.

Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key

The true home of Flipper! Don't miss this place; they are dedicated to

training, studying, and protecting the Dolphins! I recommend reserving

a spot to swim with one of the Dolphins, it is well worth the money!

Famous people from around the world visit this facility each year

because they are the best. You will be amazed at what you will learn

and the gift shop is quite nice as well.
