Oceanfront Estate Classic Keys Design: Pool Guest Cottage Dock

Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House and guest cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Spectacular, direct ocean views, great dockage, a 15 x 30 ft. freshwater pool and beautiful grounds. The perfect combination for a Florida Keys Vacation Get-a-Way. Direct open water estate property with a charming 4 bedroom main house and a separate one bedroom cottage just steps away! The buildings are 'Old Keys' style and beautifully restored and maintained. The main house flows from the family style kitchen to the dining area to a game room that offers ping pong table and then opens to the living area overlooking the pool and ocean. 2 bedrooms and a hall bath are also on that level with an additional powder room off the living room and convenient to the pool. Upstairs you will find a master suite with the master bedroom and bath as well as a separate sitting room or 4th. bedroom which opens off the master ( a great place for kids to be nearby but to have their own space). The separate cottage is just steps away and is a full one bedroom, one bath accommodation with a living and dining area and full kitchen.

Sleeping in the main house is a king in the master, 2 twins and P/O in the Master sitting room (4th. Bedroom), a Queen in one downstairs bedroom and 2 Queens in the second downstairs bedroom. Screen porch off the living area opening to the pool deck, gas grill, washer/dryer, microwave oven, D/W, TV's in the living room, all bedrooms, and the upstairs sitting room. DVD, VHS, Stereo with C/D player. This is designated a non smoking home, NO PETS allowed.

We have vacationed at this property 5 times now and LOVE this place! The grounds are beautiful with an Atlantic Ocean view that is hard to beat. Plenty of room indoors and out. Convenient location on Marathon for shopping, restaurants, kayaking and fishing. It really is a wonderful Estate. The large pool and huge dock (I think the dock is like 1200 sq. ft) is where we spend most of our time when not out in the boat. Our son actually caught a Jew Fish and several tarpon right off the dock (he did release them). Great place you will enjoy. If ever any problems one phone call and it gets taken care of quickly.

Owner's Response: Michael + Laura: Thanks for your review. We are so pleased that people enjoy the property as much as we do. This winter we gutted and updated the guest cottage keeping the pink stove that so many people comment about. Thanks again, Sheila + Lew Purdy
