Property description

Private wide waterfront home. 4,200 square foot with banquet hall, seats 14.
The city says I can only have 10, but put the smallest one in a suitcase and you can add an extra one or two. Three central air conditioners, the house is so big. Party room with unique Bar embedded with sand dollars, a real $100 bill that only kids can find, sometimes drunken adults; watch out for the 8 piranhas. Game table, big screen TVs
A cannon guards the direct channel to the Atlantic. Please bring 2 pound balls and powder with you. Fed Ex will not deliver. I used the last of it on a boat that I sunk within view of the house. Luke's Law, if a boat passes the home does not wave to my guests or is not playing Jimmy Buffet music, you have permission to fire the cannon on them. Examine the remains of the boat I sunk with use of my free kayaks. Rental boats can be delivered to my 528' of seawall. Cut in boat slip for dockage. Cornhole Game(bring your own stickers,I can't pick a team. Park 3 trucks and Trailers. Pirate parties on request. Have someone kidnapped.
Lately I've noticed evidence of a pirate spending the night in the red hammock. I know he must be a pirate because kids tell me they find a gold silver dollar in that area.
There is only 52 weeks a year for 52 lucky families.

Fishing from our docks is always an exciting surprise... tarpon, barracuda, nurse shark, sting rays; don't touch my pet lobsters at the seawall. Close to mediocre Golf courses. Swim with the dolphins.
Go to Keys Fisheries for a Lobster Rueben sandwich. It's so big, buy one for 2 people.
Next go to Captain Pips for a Fried Key Lime pie, buy 2 for one person or there will be a fight for the other persons pie.

We are located at Mile Marker 54; Key West is Mile Marker Zero. Yup, the calculator says that's 54 miles away. A scenic one hour drive and the most memorable sunset ever at Mallory Square with the circus performers. Free Kayaks Fishing, fishing, fishing. Anything that swims in the Atlantic swims past this house. As a matter of fact, the fish swim circles around this property as we are a bridge connected island. Come have your photo put on my wall with an iguana nestled on your shoulder. These cold blooded creatures love the heat of your body. On the mangrove edge of the property are my lobster breeding condos. I counted 36 all sizes.

Next time I showed my guests there was a bunch of carcacas with heads missing. I couldn't blame poachers. Just then, a nurse shark dove into the remaining baby lobsters and all I could do was throw rocks at him. Later we caught the nurse shark, and ate him. But the problem is, there is another one living in the boat slip eating the baby seahorses or maybe the octopus was the guilty one. I need you people to come investigate for me.

PS The dolphins are innocent, I watch them at sunrise and sunset feeding on bait fish...lots of bait fish. Grab a kayak, small fish net and head to the mangrove side of CannonPoint Bay and collect your own bait fish. We just added a commercial ice maker to the breezeway with the bait freezer and the gas grill. Everything is here.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I'm on my zayak out near Gilligans Island, (couple of miles away) looking for the downed Malaysia Boeing 777. Come help me look! In 2001 was on my sailboat in the process of buying an incredible home overlooking the Sea of Abaco when an aerial photo of CannonPoint showed up on my laptop. I started to worry about maintaining the Abaco property having to boat to the mainland for parts. Marathon had just put in a Home Depot so I bought CannonPoint sight unseen. I'm addicted to kayaking and the Keys are my favorite place in the World.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon, FL, USA:
Top Ten reasons to Book CannonPoint 1. Iguana races 2. Pirate protection 3. Lobster Rueben 4. Free Zayaks (only place in the Keys) 5. Turtle hospital needs your money 6. 528 feet of private seawall fishing 7. Bike ride 6.9 mile bridge aka 7mile bridge, where the Gulf of Mexico collides with the Atlantic Ocean. 8.FRIED key lime pie 9. Kayak ancient mangrove tunnels. Secret maps at Wheels-2-go, across from McDonalds 10.Swimming Elephants in season (manatees)
