About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Get away from the outside world at this lovely hide-away that includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs and a pull-out-sofa. There's a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico from every room in the house. We've made an effort to provide the things that will make your stay comfortable, fun and enjoyable. You'll love our solar heated pool with spill-over spa or soak up the sun on our beach.


Got a boat? Our dock can accommodate a boat up to 40 feet and you'll find nearby public launching areas as well as easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. Our side yard can accommodate you boat trailer.

You'll spend your time walking down a private dock to catch a
breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico, especially at sunset. Or
you can take one of our kayaks and get an up-front view of the
placid waters. If you want to swim or snorkel, you can dive in right
off the dock (we'll provide the snorkeling gear, you bring the swim
trunks). If this doesn't get you in the Keys mood, three of
Florida's top beaches are less than 15 minutes away. You'll be glad
to get your feet wet in the crystal-clear Atlantic Ocean waters. At
the beach, you can bask in the warm sun, swim, or snorkel.

A trip to the Keys would not be complete without fishing. Take our
fishing equipment (rods and reels) grab your own tackle and bait and
set out on a quest to grab yellowtail, mangrove snapper, grunts,
tarpon and all the other species native to the Keys. Don't forget
about taking those famous spiny lobsters in season.
The Keys are famous for fishing, whether it's back-country, fly,
bottom, reef or deep sea. You can hire guides, charters
and party boats which are all locally available for a fun day on the

We're minutes away from the famous Dolphin Research Center. Call
ahead to schedule a swim with the dolphins or just enjoy a day, or
an hour watching fun-filled, exciting sessions with the dolphins.
Still not enough? There's a bike trail nearby that'll take you to
the famous Seven-mile bridge (even better, we'll provide the bikes).
With several great restaurants nearby featuring the Keys' finest and
freshest seafood, there's always a place to whet your appetite. Last
and certainly not least, Key West is less than an hour away. Key
West is the perfect place for a day trip where you can shop, eat,
and watch live entertainment. There's lots of cultural activities,
museums and tours available. Don't miss Mallory Square at sunset.

We have your spot in the sun waiting! Call or e-mail today!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We're a friendly couple who live in the DC suburbs. We fell in love with the Keys and found just the right house for us on Morton Street. We vacation there several times a year and equip the house to meet our needs and hopefully yours as well. We love to read 'the story of the house' in our Guest Book every time we return there. We're always entertained, especially by what the kids have to say about the fun they're having and the discoveries they've made. We enjoy spending time in the Keys with our children and grandchildren as it's a perfect place for a family vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon, FL, USA:
We've vacationed in many of the Caribbean Islands and Mexico but when we visited the Keys, we realized we had found Paradise right in our own country. They Keys is where you'll find the only tropics in the continnential USA. Morton Street on Grassy Key is a quiet residential area. Marathon is conveniently situated halfway between Key Largo and Key West both only an hour away. It's a destination you can enjoy year round with swimming, snorkeling, boating, kayaking, fishing, diving - literally all the water sports and you can do most of them right from our dock. There are great restaurants and tiki bars and entertainment to please everyone.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are spectacular open water views from every room in the house. We overlook the Gulf of Mexico where you will enjoy fantastic sunsets. The parade of tropical birds can ve viewed right from the comfort of our huge screened porch. We've provided everything you need to have a relaxing and fun vacation. Our heated spa spills over into our heated pool providing constant filtering for a healthy environment. Our local staff maintains the house to the highest standards for your enjoyment.
