Property description

Sit on the front porch and watch the ocean and the manatees in the canal or fish from the huge dock just steps away from the front door! This sweet and fun home was recently remodeled and updated with all new furniture, beds and luxury linens. The home features tile floors, 3 king beds, 32 inch flat screen TVs in all 3 bedrooms, a 55 inch flat screen in the living area, a fully equipped kitchen and a private pool that can be heated. A misting system of essential oils has been added around the patio and pool to deter mosquitoes and noseeums. It also features a bait freezer, commercial ice machine and floating dock with kayaks.

Unique to this property is plenty of parking space for your boat, trailer and vehicles. The home is in a secluded residential private setting in the heart of Marathon. The canal is private to the two rental homes on the property with a large docking area that has a fish cleaning station and running water. Three kayaks, paddles and life jackets are provided from a floating dock in the canal that is shared with the neighboring property. The dedicated canal opens directly to the Atlantic Ocean and is just minutes from Vaca Cut and the Gulf side of Marathon.

The home is surrounded by green grass with plenty of space for children to play and a driveway and parking area with room for a trailer and boat.

Next to property is a separate 4 bedroom rental home with its own pool. The two homes can be rented together as a family compound if there is availability.

The location is ideal for weddings and other family celebrations.
