About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

You don't come to the islands to stay in a town! Relax in our tropical paradise away from the traffic and noise of US Hwy #1.

When we decided to purchase a home in the Florida Keys privacy and being close to nature was top on our list of requirements. We found the perfect combination on Grassy Key, a small island between Islamorada and Marathon made famous by 'Flipper' and the Dolphin Research Center.

On Grassy Key we are close enough to enjoy Marathon restaurants and grocery shopping yet still be able to explore dive sites in both the Upper and Lower Keys!

The perfect location has now been turned into the perfect oasis. Special features include a gourmet kitchen that will please the most discriminating chef. Our guests enjoy luxury bedding with quality linens, fluffy towels and bathrobes. Wireless internet service and free domestic phone calls if you must stay in touch with the outside world!

After a full day in the sun there is no better place to relax than in the cool fresh water pool surrounded by the lush gardens. Check out the massive coconut and royal palms, the 9' high bird of paradise, the banana and key lime trees, blooming hibiscus and orchids. Just don't lay under the coconut trees!

Professional maintained by our local caretakers, Doug and Donna you will be pleasantly surprised at the extra attention we take to make your stay enjoyable!

Need more proof? Take a look at our past guest's comments, then check our availability calendar for your vacation dates. Don't hesitate, after 15 years of satisfied guests this home books months in advance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Born and raised in Georgia I have always loved the climate in Florida. I was in awe when I first visited the Keys and drove across the old wooden 7Mile Bridge, I knew then I wanted a home in this tropical paradise. After spending several years looking, I fell in love with White Sands and her previous owners, Pat & JoAnne Ballenger! Thankfully I was able to acquire this home and now have my own slice of paradise to enjoy when I can get away from the horse farm.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon, FL, USA:
It's a perfect location on Grassy Key, private and removed from the noisy traffic of US Hwy #1. Close enough to Marathon for grocery shopping and enjoying the conveniences of fine dining. Less than an hour south is the tourism capital of the Keys - Key West is brimming with cruise ships and night life.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Your own private tropical gardens with unobscured sunset views from the end of the 300' long dock. Delight to the music of palm fronds singing in the breeze. Enjoy the Gulf views from the expansive wall of windows, the comfy deck chairs on the back porch, or our colorfully painted Adirondack beach chairs
