FISHING:

Our efficiencies are located ideally for fishing in the Florida Keys. Grassy Key has quick and easy access to fishing both on the Atlantic and the Bay side (the bridge for bay side access is 1/2 mile away). You can fish by boat on the flats a couple hundred yards from our dock for Bonefish, Tarpon and small Sharks. Shallow reefs only a mile or two away offer Yellowtail, Mangrove snapper, and Mackerel in abundance. The Gulf Stream offers Dolphin, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, you name it. This is a boating and fisherman’s paradise

Lobster can be found under rocks and ledges on both the Atlantic as well as the Bay side (during season).

Fishing from the Jetty is a lot of fun. There are small sharks, Snook, Tarpon, various Snappers and Grunt.

KAYAKING:

Our marina provides easy access to shallow water bordered by mangroves, and some small mangrove islands less than a mile from the marina. This is a great area to Kayak, you frequently see small baby sharks, tarpon, rays and a variety of tropical fish and birds. Duck Key Island is about 2 miles from our dock.

Kayaks can be rented at marina located directly across the street.

BIKING:

Grassy key has some quiet streets suitable for biking. Bikes can be rented at marina located directly across the street.

Snorkeling is fantastic at numerous nearby reefs and state marine parks (Coffin Patch Reef, Sombrero Reef). Several Snorkel-Boats leave Duck-Key and Marathon for daily trips to the nearby reef.

LAUNDRY :

About Hans Moller

Engineer and High School teacher. We are a married couple who enjoys fishing, traveling, good music (ie New Orleans Jazz Fest), cooking (ie fish on the BBQ)

We work hard, then escape from the real world and go to the Florida Keys as often as we can.

Hans Moller purchased this studio in 2003

Why Hans Moller chose Marathon

We invested in our rental-units after visiting Florida Keys for 20 years. We decided that Marathon, Grassy Key, is the ultimate Keys location. People are nice and relaxed, it is the place you go when you want to get away from the 'rat-race'. Fishing, Lobstering and snorkeling is phenomenal. While Islamorada and Key West are fun places to visit, you will find the Marathon area more quiet, it's the best part of the Florida Keys. Key West is only an hour drive away, take a day-trip.

What makes this studio unique

Provides more of a "old times" Keys experience. But we also provide the modern comforts with quiet Mini-Split AC, TV, WiFi

Enjoy our private setting. Listen to the birds, gaze at the stars at night, mingle with friendly people who are in the Keys to have a relaxing and good time.

A dock can be rented for $15/night (max 25 foot, Boat insurance is required)

Super Cozy Bungalow Near The Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Hans has several wonderful bungalows here in Marathon. We have been so pleased with this unit. Wonderfully clean, and nice unexpected extras such as free laundry right outside of our unit, fishing poles, a cooler, beach chairs, extra propane for the grill and a slip for our boat(if we had rented on during this vacation).

This units ac is mounted in the wall and had more than enough cooling power. The Wi-Fi was nice and strong in and outside of the unit as well. The private jetty provided a perfect location to watch the sunrise and sunset, with great places to wet your fishing line.

Everyone in this adult only community were very neighborly to us. The people of Marathon were one of the hardest hit keys during Hurricane Irma and are working so darn hard to make this paradise even better.

If you’ve ever wanted to visit the Florida Keys, Marathon and it’s community has so so much to offer!

We both look forward to returning to Marathon for vacation and staying in this unit again!

Cute Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a relaxing retreat. Quiet, friendly community with a nice pool and a beautiful short walk to great views of sunrise, sunset and lots of wildlife. Loved the pelicans, egrets and herons fishing in the neighborhood! Congenial hosts and a lovely, clean, comfortable unit. I would happily return!

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family have rented the apartment twice before and we will be happy to return. It is clean and tidy. The property is close to Marathon where you will find exciting restaurants with delicious local seafood. The area is very nice for those who like to fish. The property also has access to a nice pool which is approximately 60 meters from the apartment.

This is the perfect place for those who want to relax. The apartment is about an hour's drive from Key West. We would recommend the apartments to family and friends. Me and my family are happy to rent the apartment again the next holiday.

Loved #9

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this place. It was cute, clean and handy to Marathon's businesses, beaches, and parks. We walked to the end of the road daily to watch the sun rise and see the marine life waking up. The swimming pool was great, people were friendly, and BBQ grill was used often. Cannot say enough about this place.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying at this property. It is comfortable and clean, and for 1-2 people is perfect given you won't be spending much time indoors anyway. Located near restaurants, running/bike path, grocery stores, and, of course, the water, if you're looking for a quiet escape in the Keys this can't be beat. The owner is friendly and responsive.
