The adjoining indoor pool is surrounded by a wide tile patio and seating area, and further enhanced by a border of tropical planting. The vaulted Honduran mahogony ceiling completes the picture.

The five bedrooms and three full bathrooms have just been completely redecorated using only the finest of beds, mattresses, and bathroom fixtures. The master bath has a walk in shower and large tub with a walk- in [ handicap ] door. All bedrooms have new flat screen TVs.

More than an acre of landscaped grounds surround the residence; the lawns are a lush green and meticulously maintained.

Why Jim Austin chose Marathon

Our family has vacationed in Marathon for many years and when the opportunity arose to purchase this house which we had always admired, we took it. The area is reminiscent of the islands with a relaxed, informal lifestyle. There is plenty to do in and around Marathon, the fishing is fantastic, and the kids love it.

What makes this estate unique

' Sunset Point ' is a private little kingdom secluded behind it's walled entrance.The Sombrero Beach location is certainly the best in Marathon for a variety of reasons. First, the fantastic Sombrero Beach itself with its bathrooms, showers,and two volley ball courts, is only one mile away. Secondly,it is centrally located; only a short distance to supermarkets,restaurants, and shopping. Additionally, Sombrero Beach is one of the finest neighborhoods in Marathon.

Perfect for 3 couples and 4 kids!

  • 5 of 5

The house and surrounding grounds were beautiful and very tidy. Dock space is excellent with close access to the gulf and Atlantic. We visited shortly after Irma’s destruction and Marathon was still digging out from the disaster, but the community and homeowners did everything to make us feel comfortable and welcome.

Marathon 2017

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year renting this house with 12 people. The view is spectacular! the property provides privacy and tranquility. We enjoyed fishing from the bulk head, the spacious boat dock for our boat rental, kayaks, and paddle boards. The wide lagoon provided us our own "playground" for kayaking and paddle boarding. This year we had tons of fun playing shuffle board in the driveway and swimming in the indoor pool at night. The house is spacious and comfortable. The property manager is very accommodating. We love coming to Marathon and have had the most wonderful family vacations in this house! Looking forward to next year!!

Pefect Family Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of eight adults and two teenagers stayed at this beautiful home May 27- June 3. We found the house extremely comfortable and well stocked. We were the go-to location and the hosts for large dinners that included friends who were also vacationing in Marathon. We used all the bedrooms and everyone slept well. The grandmothers did their exercises each day in the pool. Some of us spent the days at Sombrero beach but most of us preferred to enjoy the sun and the view from the various decks at the house or from under the exotic Mamey fruit tree in the large side yard. Being on the point at the end of the road, overlooking the open bay with hundreds of feet of waterfront on three sides and complete privacy was extraordinary. My nephews fished with great results off the seawall. Everyone loved the house. It was a relaxing and comfortable week and we found the property manager very attentive and helpful. We will be back!
