About the property

2 Bdrm, 1.5 Bath, Waterfront, 1 Mile To The Beach

Welcome to Coco Plum Paradise, located in Marathon, FL - the Heart of the Florida Keys.

This private Key West-style home sits directly on Bonefish Bay with beautiful water views, deep-water dockage, and direct ocean access. A tropical landscaped oasis with mature coconut palms, a private in-ground pool, hot tub, outdoor shower, and a sandy dockside “beach” area. This is a private single-family home, so during your stay, these amenities are provided exclusively for you and your guests.

Wake up to spectacular sunrises while watching the dolphins and manatees from the large covered balcony. Enjoy fishing right from the dock. Soak up the midday sun while relaxing poolside or enjoy your own peaceful kayak outing in the bay. Challenge your guests to a round of ping-pong in the enclosed downstairs recreation room that has a seating area, and a full-size refrigerator for entertaining. There's even a large gas grill just next to the pool and rec room so the chef doesn't have to leave the entertainment.

Home has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, living area, dining area, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, and full size refrigerator (water and ice maker). There is also an indoor laundry area with new large-capacity HE washer and dryer.

About G & L Stone

We have recently retired from the United States Air Force and are currently living in Colorado. We love to SCUBA dive, fish and spend time on, in, or beside the ocean. After years of traveling the world, we decided that the Florida Keys is where we’d like to put down roots. We plan to retire to Coco Plum Paradise as soon as we can but hope you enjoy it in the meantime.

G & L Stone purchased this house in 2014

Why G & L Stone chose Marathon Area

Marathon is laid back yet offers everything we need. With its central location, it's a great home base for enjoying all the Keys has to offer. The house is close to shopping, restaurants and bars which was important to us. We intend to spend tons of time on the water so it was also important to have quick access to the ocean. Logistics aside, and though we had a lot of work ahead of us, when we walked through the gate for the first time, we were hooked.

tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

this house was perfect for our party of 3. the pool and hot tub were so nice to have. we put our kayak and paddleboards in and used them every day to fish and look at the nature. saw manatee, small sharks and rays while paddling in area near house. loved all the iguana's and at one point counted 21 between the house and neighbors yard. the owners are extremely responsive. the deck had missing board and they sent someone over to fix asap. our second time in marathon. loved owners suggestions too. we went to sparkys several times, tarpon behind holiday inn and burdines. great vacation. dreaming of returning soon.

A wonderful island getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I often take trips down to Marathon and decided to try out Greg and Lori's Coco Plum Paradise. The house was in a very convenient location and it was in excellent condition. The decor was beachy and the views spectacular. I woke up every morning to watch the sunrise. We fished off the dock (caught a few small pinfish) and across the Overseas Highway next to Island Fish Co (we caught a grouper, shark, and other fish there). We had a great time kayaking to Curry Hammock State Park and enjoyed playing ping pong. Unfortunately, the pool was very cold - so we didn't spend as much time floating with a beverage as we had intended to. Thankfully, the property also had a hot tub, which always seemed to save the day. On our first morning there, I received a welcome phone call from Greg - which was an awesome touch. I told him that one of the grill tanks was empty, and he made sure to have a new tank delivered within a few hours. We brought along our chocolate lab and the property easily accommodated him with plenty of room to run and play. We also had a great time watching the iguanas - at one time there were 13 on the seawall next door! Thank you so much for opening your home to visitors like us!

Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Coco Plum for our 5th anniversary. We mostly stayed around the Marathon area. Our favorite place to eat was Burdines off 15th street. The house was great and the view is fantastic. I was up early every morning just to watch the sunrise. My husband didn't have much luck fishing but it was very windy while we were there; however, it was still very relaxing to sit on the chairs and watch him.

Great Rental Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property is just perfect! My husband and I enjoyed all the amenities. . .the pool, kayaks, ping pong table, hammock, hot tub, etc. We spent a lot of time at Sombrero Beach, which is very close to the house. The house is very private too. As much as this property is rented, I was worried that everything would be "worn out." I could not have been more wrong. The house was very, very clean and everything was well maintained. I looked forward to coming back from the beach just so we could hang by the pool and have some cocktails! My husband and I use VRBO exclusively, and this rental property is at the top of our list. Better book quick....their 2017 calendar is almost filled. That in itself should be a testament to how great this rental property is!

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a wonderful place to get away from it all! On arrival we were impressed with all of the extras provided. It seems like everything you could need has been thought of. The outdoor space is wonderful, and we really enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and especially the provided kayaks. The area around the house is great for exploring by water, and we even had a manatee come close to us in the canal! We were at the property when hurricane Matthew came (somewhat) nearby, and even though the owners were directly in the path of the storm, Greg still called to make sure everything was ok. We wouldn't hesitate to return. Thanks!
