About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is ideal for Winter Snowbirds, fishing enthusiasts, lobster and scuba divers, beach lovers and more. The Conch Cottage is available to rent anytime of the year. Lower rates apply during "off season". Dockage is also available for boats up to 30' for an additional fee per month. All rentals must be booked for a minimum of 31 nights. This lovely Conch Cottage is a ground level home in the 'Little Venice' area of Marathon, a perfect retreat for one or two couples. The home is in a quiet neighborhood off US1 and has the charm and 'old keys' style that is becoming hard to find. It is beautifully maintained and comfortable. Also steps from our Conch Cottage is a canal side bench to sit and enjoy the water view.

The home is fully furnished and tastefully decorated... just unpack your suitcase and enjoy the easy living in the 'Heart of the Florida Keys'. This Conch Cottage has a backyard gazebo which offers a tropical shady spot to relax, read a book or entertain. There is also a private patio off the kitchen for Al Fresco dining complete with a gas grill. This cottage includes a nicely fenced yard which provides lots of privacy.


The interior has tile floors for easy care with carpet in the bedrooms. The Master bedroom has its own on suite with shower.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: The Owners of this property, Cora & Drew, met in the Florida Keys 15 years ago and can't imagine living any other place but Marathon. Cora was born and raised in Ogden, Utah and Drew is originally from City Island, New York. Both love everything that this little piece of paradise offers from boating, fishing, lobstering, diving and so much more. Drew is the owner/operator of a marine canvas business and Cora assists as his Office Manager. Cora also is an Aquacise Instructor and a ZUMBA Instructor for Marathon Zumba Fitness. Both are very involved in the Marathon community.

Why the Owner Chose Little Venice, Marathon, FL, USA:
Marathon at Mile Marker 53 is in the Heart of the Florida Keys. World class sport fishing, lobstering, beautiful beaches, boating with easy access to both the gulf and the ocean. Key West is just over 50 miles South and Miami just over two hours North.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Conch Cottage was built in 1957 when the Florida Keys and especially Marathon was growing. It has the charm and comfort of the old Keys with all the modern amenities of today.
