Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home On Vaca Cut With Pool, Spa And Protected Dockage.

This single family home is located just in from Vaca Cut with unobstructed views of the Cut and the Ocean beyond. Protected dockage and a 30' freshwater pool and poolside Spa. This home offers a perfect blend of gracious 'Old Keys' casual style and the location offers the sought after boating access to the Ocean or Gulf within minutes. The ground level access contributes to an easy lifestyle, no stairs or steps, the living areas flow uninterrupted from inside to outside and on to the waterfront and dock. Just steps from the pool and pier is a seawall rimmed semi circular beach cove, a unique accent and great spot to get wet without having to do a thing but relax and look at the water. The perfect touch to end another great vacation day will be the beautiful sunset color in the sky viewed from the living areas and waterfront.

The spacious living, dining and kitchen areas are central to the home. Vaulted ceilings, window walls along the front of the room and banks of sliding glass doors opening to the pool deck visually enlarge the already generous space for an open and bright room. Chrome and stainless accents throughout the decor add to the clean light and open feel. With the seating, dining and kitchen areas all open to each other, family gatherings and interaction is a breeze, whether watching TV entertainment, preparing meals, dining or just relaxing to chat about the days activities or planning for tomorrow's adventures! The kitchen has all you would need for easy meal preparation within a few steps, beautiful stainless steel counters for easy clean up and an elevated breakfast bar for a light bite or cooks helpers to offer assistance without being underfoot.

The master bedroom is one of the two bedrooms on the north end of the home and has a private bath with tiled shower. The master is well proportioned and also has water and pool views through it's sliding glass doors and a king size bed. The guest bedroom on this side of the home has a Queen size bed and a bath suite that also opens to the hall for living area use. The south side of the home has two guest bedrooms, one waterside with a Queen bed and private bath and the 4th bedroom has 2 twin beds and it's own bath.

Great dockage and a beach cove! Almost immediate access to Vaca Cut and from the dock, minutes to the Ocean or Gulf. Don't have a boat? The dock also serves as a great fishing pier. Shallow water flats out front and the Cut just beyond is a great combination for fun fishing! The beach cove makes a great spot to launch the complimentary Kayaks or relax in the water without having to do anything but look at the views. The pier creates a slip for dockage with 45' of running seawall and 35' of pier. Please Note use of the Kayaks is at your own risk and must be used in the Bay areas and surrounding canals and Harbors, not to be used in or along Vaca Cut (current is extremely strong and you would not be able to paddle against it).

A dog may be considered. If approved there will be a $125 pet fee plus tax.

This home is on a week minimum.

This House Was Great.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation house in a nice, quiet neighborhood. The four bedrooms and bathrooms give everyone some private space, but the large and open living room/dining room/ kitchen area gives the group lots of places to gather together as well, with several different seating areas. We spent Thanksgiving week here and were very happy. The kitchen is quite well stocked; we found everything we needed to cook a big Thanksgiving dinner for ourselves. There’s a washer and dryer for use, and a grill; we used all of them. It was fun to have a pool right outside our door, and the house had three kayaks which we used several times to paddle around in the ocean right by the house.

Marathon is a nice town for a base of operations in the Keys. You can make day trips from there to Key West in one direction, and to Islamorada and Key Largo in the other direction. Marathon has restaurants, good grocery stores, the fun and interesting Turtle Hospital, and a nice beach named Sombrero Beach.

The very best thing about the house, however, is its location right on the ocean. The sunsets occur directly across the water from the house, so we enjoyed gathering at that time of day to enjoy the beautiful view. We spent many hours out on the deck area next to the ocean – reading, talking, or just looking at the water. I highly recommend this house.
