About the Property


Hello all you vacationers out there! The Marlin has three units total. Unit 202 is a one bedroom and will sleep four. It has a king bed and a queen sleeper sofa.
Unit 204 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep six. It has a queen bed, two twin beds and a queen sleeper sofa.
Unit 206 is a two bedroom one bath and will sleep eight. It has a queen bed, two twin beds and two queen sleeper sofas.

The building has a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer and both public boat ramps are no more than a 2 minute drive away.

There is also an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, sink and refrigerator and an outdoor sitting area with tables and chairs. There is hammock under the trees to relax in as well. Unit 206 has its own private sitting area.

In the front there is a covered area with more chairs so you can get some shade but still be outside enjoying the beautiful island weather. The street The Marlin is on is tucked back in and because it is not a through way and because there is no public parking, the street is hardly traveled and perfect for children.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to call or email.

I look forward to hearing from you and finding the perfect vacation rental for you.

If you are interested, we do have other properties available. We have a two bedroom two bath duplex also located in Holmes Beach. It's just a little over a mile away from the Marlin...or a trolley car ride!

Also available is a two bedroom, two bath condo. It sits on the bay side with beautiful views! This property is only available as a monthly rental. Please inquire for availability.

Remember we are listing 331207. Please write that down to view this website again! P

Thank you again! Look forward to meeting you soon.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Holmes Beach, FL, USA:
When I moved to the island I fell in love with the small town feel. I thought that other people would also enjoy getting to experience the tight knit community. So I set out to design the Marlin to accommodate family reunions or quick getaways. It makes me smile to be able to let someone else enjoy our island paradise. I hope that everyone that stays here will enjoy our island as much as I do and that it will be a yearly stop for many!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
THE BEACH! a few steps and you are there! Then come back up for lunch, shower off in the outdoor shower and be back on the beach in no time at all. In the evenings, grill on the outdoor gas grill or sit and enjoy the night sea air and of course, most importantly don't miss a moment of the sunset. Less exciting but equally important is the Marlin offers free long distance calling, internet, cable TV, washer and dryer and a large parking area that can accommodate a boat and trailer.
