About Jennifer Grissom
I manage this property on the side for my parents who bought the property in 1987 as a family investment/vacation home. We spent two weeks down there every summer and I have the best memories of this home; learning to fish, snorkel, and endlessly exploring. My parents lived here for a few years after retirement before sailing off on the boat for the next ten years. They settled in the mountains of Panama in a beautiful City of Boquete. My sisters and brothers and I continue to use the house with our children and my parents were generous enough to allow us to rent their home, so we may continue to keep it in the family and make more memories with our children.

Why Jennifer Grissom chose Marathon
The view! Yes, its remodeled and that is all nice, but the view is amazing and sets the mood everyday. You cannot be in a bad mood when you are here. Also it is only a short boat ride to the inlet to go out fishing or diving or to Hawks Cay resort for happy hour.

Dream Location & Setting in the Keys
The property is on an exclusive island key near the middle of The Florida Keys. The island has really cool bridges and everyone drives around on golf carts. The island is also riddled with canals that the bridges take you over. The resort store and dock have lots of activities and amenities if you need them for your stay. For kids the dock area has an ice cream/Starbucks stand. You must walk around at night to see the lights in all the canals. The effect is surreal, with the ocean just at your back or on the horizon. The house is in a great location with a canal adjacent to the ocean right off the back porch. Sunsets and sunrises are phenomenal. There are little sandy beaches we paddled to at the end of the canal and small islands you can make it to in paddle boats/kayaks. The golf carts and kayaks can all be delivered and picked up or you can pick them up yourself. The house comes with a pool. It's perfect for when you don't want to get in the ocean. Overall the perfect place to kickback and relax with lots of restaurants and shopping. The house is newly updated and very nice open floor plan. The porches were the best at sunset with a breeze coming through. The house was very clean and new. The owner was very responsive to one issue with the plumbing and super nice. I would recommend the property to anyone who is looking to go to the Keys for an extended stay.
Very comfortable. Open floor plan and back balcony deck fabulous. Docked a 35 ft sea vee and fished 4 days. You prepared well for fishing families by having small freezer downstairs for bait and cleaned fish.
Overall a vacation of memories for entire family
Lightning in a Bottle - It just never happens....
In the case of this home...IT HAPPENED.....There was nothing that I would change. Everything was perfect. The home was so well stocked with all the amenities of home. The pool was perfect. Grill was fine...We look forward to booking this home again in the future....LOVED IT!!!
Our daughter rented this home for our annual family vacation in the keys---absolutely wonderful house with great view of the ocean, the morning dove family nesting on a ledge of the house had one egg hatch and we named the baby George after Will and Kate's baby born the same day.. Would rent again if available for next year.... Thank you for being a wonderful host... Bj
Perfect setting on Duck Key
We stayed at this home for the first time with friends and had a wonderful experience. The house is newly renovated and really well done with top quality amenities. The furniture and beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything we needed, and then some. With the pool, canal and ocean view, there's so much to keep you entertained; fishing off the dock, easy access to your boat, and a nearby channel out to the ocean. Offshore fishing and snorkeling are within a short boat ride away. We would definitely come back for foture vacations in this awesome home!
This is the best house for boating, lobstering, fishing, diving and family full in the Keys!!
"Prime, prime, prime location! We have stayed here 5 times and there is no greater place or location in Marathon or Duck Key. We have rented numerous houses and hotels in Marathon and all the Keys and nothing compares to this house! We bring our 32' Donzi ZF and dock it right at the house. The house was completely renovated by the time of our last stay, which was the first week in Jan, 2013, and it is GORGEOUS! It has the best views of any house on Duck Key or Marathon and possibly anywhere in the Keys. You have access to everything the Florida Keys has to offer and you are directly on the ocean - it does NOT get any better than this. I would recommend this Duck Key house to anyone considering renting a place in Marathon or Duck Key or quite frankly anywhere in the Keys. Great time, great owners, beyond phenomenal location and what paradise looks like!"
