About the Property

Great place to vist with family & friends or to get away & fish or just relax

Beautiful town-home in a quiet location with a boat slip at your doorstep and sunsets that you will remember for a lifetime. This section will be completed at a later date because I am presently enjoying all those amenities available here at Indigo Reef. I hope you all get an opportunity to visit and for a long time as life doesn't get any better than this. I would live here forever but have 2 grandchildren that live 1 mile from me in Virginia and, at least for the time being, I feel the need to be with them, Cheers... jeff
OK…. Here’s my start at the PROPERTY DESCRIPTION
Villa 46 at Indigo Reef is oriented east / west. The entrance and guest rooms face the east and get the morning sun filtered through the trees with an orchid growing on one of the trees. The deck off the living area and master bedroom face west providing sunsets as beautiful as anywhere on the planet.
The covered parking for Villa 46 is situated directly across from the Villa making loading and unloading as convenient as possible. Additionally, the boat slip for the unit is conveniently located off the back deck. The slip has 110V electricity and fresh water and the fish cleaning station is about 20 feet away. Indigo Reef also provides free ice for your boat to ice down your catch and there are even some nice mangrove snappers hiding in the mangroves on the far side of the channel.
The Villa is close to the pool yet not so close as to be bothered by folks walking to and from the pool. Although Indigo Reef is a quiet and serene setting, Villa 46 has recently added hurricane proof glass for all exterior doors and windows making the unit one of the quietest at Indigo Reef. Charcoal barbecue grills are available near the docks but not so close that smoke and unwanted smells will enter the Villa.
The Villa was professionally decorated so I take no credit for the comfortable furniture or decorative paintings. To make the Villa more user friendly I added a desk because I know some people need to do a little work even when they are on vacation and there is a Bluetooth speakers if you like to listen to music or watch movies on your laptop or cell phone. Secure Wi-Fi is available throughout the Villa and unsecured Wi-Fi is available in the area of the pool.
Regarding entertainment at Villa 46, there is a large, flat screen TV with DVD player in the main living area that offers Comcast cable HD channels. There is also a new 55" flat screen cable TV in the master bedroom and a flat screen TV in the queen bedroom. An under counter radio / CD player with remote is located by the breakfast bar. I love the oldies at 94.3 FM. All bedrooms have alarm clocks but the master and queen bedrooms have a clock radio that can be set for 4 alarms per day and for different days of the week.
I’ve also added a buffet and hutch to Villa 46 to expand the space for dishes, silverware and groceries for those who enjoy eating at home once in a while. The kitchen is fully stocked with a wide variety of pots, pans, cookie sheets, regular and minature muffin tins and a wide variety of miscellaneous kitchen utensils. In 2017 I replaced all the dishes and silverware and added both wooden and crystal salad bowls. And don't miss the wine rack next to the refrigerator with wine and margarita glasses.
There is a unique table in the living area with 4 slide out stools which makes for an excellent game table for family board games should you encounter a few hours of inclement weather. And I've just added a portable corn hole game for times when you'd just like to play outdoors in the back yard. A small but growing selection of books is also provided. In the living area there is a small weather station providing indoor/outdoor temperature humidity and air pressure with a repeater in the master bedroom.
I recently added a wheeled cooler to take to the beach along with a beach umbrella and some beach chairs. A couple of light fishing rods are included with a minimum amount of tackle. And enjoy all the swim noodles on the back deck to use in our large, salt water swimming pool that is heated in the winter and cooled in the summer.. For those that enjoy plants I planted a Meyer Lemon tree, a miniature mango tree and a couple of "Miracle Plants". They are called Miracle Plants because if you eat one of the bright red berries that are about marble size, which don't taste like much, everything you eat or drink for the next 30 minutes will taste sweet... even lemons and vinegar!
Have a great time and I give priority to returning guests so come back often, especially in the fall when the weather is fantastic and things are even more relaxed because the snowbirds have not yet come south.
Cheers, jeff

We have numerous restaurants of many types and our local Sombrero Beach is one of the best beaches in the Keys. Several state parks are close by as is the Dolphin Training Center, Turtle Hospital, Theater of the Sea and Hawks Cay. Boat rentals, parasailiing, snorkeling, diving, kyaking, fishing, golf and just relaxing at the pool or on the beach are all waiting for you.

It's just a short ride to Key West with all the activities available there with a great miniature golf course on Sumerland Key.

Or stop at No Name Pub on Big Pine Key. Have a delightful lunch or dinner and watch all the Key deer on Big Pine or No Name Keys.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Retired US Air Force Flight Test Project Officer and also retired as the City Engineer from Poquoson, Virginia. Now liviing at my small marina on the Chesapeake Bay in Deltaville, Virginia when I'm not enjoying my home at Indigo Reef .

Why the Owner Chose Indigo Reef Marina Homes (Marathon, FL, USA):
I initially purchased my home for my personal use and that of my family however after purchasing I was asked if I would honor the existing rentals on the unit. Not wanting to ruin anyone's holiday I agreed and have been enjoying the opportunity to meet new travelers and make new friends ever since. I like to think my home is one of the nicer ones at Indigo Reef because of it's location within the development, decorations and amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
I continue to improve my home because when my 9 and 13 year old grandchildren, who live a mile from me in Virginia, are no longer excited about playing with grandpa, I intend to move here permanently. That will probably be 8 or 9 years from now but I spend as much time as I can in Marathon when the kids are in school. It's one of the most peaceful places to be, especially in the late autumn season.
