Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

Gorgeous, 4 bedroom, 4 full bath home, plus 1/2 bath, located on exclusive Tingler Island and near Sombrero Beach!

This 3297 square feet tri- level floor plan provides space and privacy for visitors, while the softly lit pool area create a wonderful atmosphere for entertaining and relaxation. With over 1000 square feet of outdoor porches, you can enjoy relaxing on any of the balconies off every room or the hot tub overlooking the ocean on the third floor outdoors!

If you need an even more breathtaking view, follow the spiral staircase to the fourth floor rooftop observation deck! The view is beyond spectacular.

Then, take a casual stroll to the perfectly groomed Sombrero Beach, less than one mile away.

This elegant home has plenty of parking for boat and jet ski trailers and a deep water canal that provides access to Sombrero Beach and the Atlantic Ocean in the blink of an eye. Both the gulf and ocean are accessible, with several boat ramps nearby.

If you prefer a slower pace, take the kayak at the property and explore the mangroves and canals. The direct access to the ocean is perfect for fishing, diving, snorkeling and trips to the sandbar. It is also the best location for evening boat rides or visit one of our many restaurants where you can dock and dine.

If you are renting over the 4th of July, THIS HOME IS IDEAL.! You don`t need to worry about beach parking, the fireworks look fantastic from the roof top deck, and your dock will give you the fastest access to the waters in front of the beach where many boats park for the day.

Marathon is the ideal location for a Keys vacation. Located directly in the middle of the Florida Keys, nothing seems to be too far away. Spend an evening in Key West visiting the local haunts or watching the sunset at Mallory Square. Half way down, stop for a round of mini-golf at Boondocks, or go the opposite direction towards Key Largo and visit John Pennecamp State Park that is just 45 minutes away.

Arrived: 7/19/2014 SUPER AWESOME TRIP!!! The house was perfect for our group of 10! We rented a boat for the week and utilized the onsite dock, which has a straight shot out the canal to the open water!! We enjoyed the great space of this home- everyone had a place to sleep and we never felt crowded at all! Our group was comprised of teenagers, parents and grandparents. We all loved all the amenities and the close proximity to stores, etc!!!! All I can say is GO!!! You will LOVE it!!

Reviewer Comments:

Home was beautiful, clean and included more amenities than we could use. We were three couples and could not use all the space or toys included with the house even though we tried. Didn't have time for the hot tub, pool table, ping pong table, kayak or paddle boards. Would love to bring my grandchildren back to take advantage of all this home has to offer. The Lighthouse Grill, Key Colony Inn and Sparky's were great places to dine. Go before 6 for great specials at the Lighthouse! Took the beautiful drive to Key West when the weather was bad in Marathon and enjoyed the sun and fun there. Was a great vacation and would not look for any other house to rent when we return. This home is perfect in every way! Thanks Vicki for answering all our questions and always being available when we needed you! (Even something as stupid as not being able to work the coffee maker...haha). Look forward to renting from you again!

Reviewer Comments:

The house worked well for our family(daughter, husband, grandson and granddaughter.). We had very nice weather and the pool was the center of attraction. Great location-- 1 mile to Sombrero Beach, 2 miles to Publix, K-Mart and stop light to get on to US 1. Also great views from multiple decks. Very quite neighborhood. NO traffic. A little disappointed with rental company as two calls were not returned. The house needs a little TLC and isn't as nice as some homes we have rented, but the ad represented the house well. Rented a boat from Vacation Boat Rentals, which is close to rental. The boat dock was very good with a nice fish cleaning station and provided very good shelter. The boat rental company was excellent!!! Overall we had a fantastic vacation. The Keys are great!!!

We had a wonderful vacation. The property is located a short distance from Marathon. Everything readily available but all the advantages of quiet, beautiful views and more than we expected. Our only problem was with the cable TV being out but everyone tried very hard to resolve it. Would definitely come again or recommend it to friends. There were nine in our family group and plenty of room for everyone with lovely spaces to be alone and to enjoy. And...the fishing was great!!

This house was the perfect size for our group of 10. The furnishings especially the outdoor could use some updating and bathroom fixtures but overall nice. We had a couple maintenance issues that were taken care of very promptly.

This is our 2nd year staying in this home and it had more than enough room 3 families. The upper deck of this house is my favorite for star gazing. The location cannot be beat....just down the road from Publix and a great park, playground and beach access just a short bike ride away!

Reviewer Comments:

Had a wonderful stay.Plan to do it again.House had some issues,but fairly typical of a rental.Location is super private and beautiful.Great ocean access from dock and a few minute boat ride to Sombrero Lighthouse for awesome snorkeling.Management is not quick to return your calls and there is not an emergency number (which we needed when there was a leak).LOTS OF STAIRS.Outside of house needs a little cosmetic workThe pool gets very warm and the cooling system has a lock on it, so you won't be able to utilize that.There are also security cameras around outside(so behave)Inside, the entire house is slick tile, which gets incredibly slick when wet.The house was very clean when we arrived.Linens and towels are cheap, but in decent shape.Laundry room has top of the line washer and dryer, which is great.Bed mattresses are Mehh..not great (master is the worst) but better than the last house we rented.All bathrooms in need of major update.Kitchenette/bedroom is HOT during the day but they have a large curtains on those windows so but your very early morning person on that hide-a-bed.Oven door has no glass.Main floor has a pool table, two sitting areas, dining area and kitchen.Unfortunately the dishwasher wasn't working when we got there and it didn't get fixed until Thursday which was an inconvenience and we had to go buy paper products to use instead of spend a lot of time washing dishes by hand. Rental company needs to have directions on some of the appliances.We are pretty smart people and couldn't figure any of those out on our own. Refrigerator stunk (like seafood) and we had to take out all the drawers, scrub it, and buy baking soda.Half bath on that floor gets VERY hot during the day.Porches are nice.New cushions needed on back porch facing the canal needed. All in all, we had a great time and would expect for the cost of this house, these details would be taken care of.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We have replaced cushions on patio furniture, a brand new dishwasher was installed as the maintenance man said the one that quit could not be repaired. Unfortunately, that took a couple of days to do. The pool does not have a chiller or spa. It does have the capability to add, and maybe a chiller will be added in the future. The security cameras are not active when we have guests. There is a green book on the kitchen counter with all the emergency numbers, including the manager as well as other quick references. My apology you could not locate. The first part of 2017 will bring new mattresses and all doors replaced as well as other details. We hope you will visit again.
