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, 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.

About Hans Moller

Married couple, Engineer and Teacher. We enjoy outdoor activities including boating, fishing, snorkeling, bike riding.

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)

Great Place in Middle Keys

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed at this property. I enjoy it very much. It's simple, clean and very well situated. Close to a couple of nice beaches (beaches are rare in the keys), as well as grocery stores. There are also some decent restaurants in the area if you want to go out. It's about 1:15h to Key West. If you want to relax and enjoy the Keys this is a great place to do that.

The overall experience was good. Very quiet!

  • 3 of 5

There were a few things that could have been better, but it was nothing that was extremely terrible. Secluded and quiet! Window coverings need to be more private. Map of park amenities would have made things more convenient. The bungalow is centrally located in Marathon on Grassy Key which was one if the best features.

The property was exactly what I was looking for. Clean and convenient minutes from fishing.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time with my eight-year-old son on our annual fishing trip. Everybody was super friendly and the accommodations were great. It had all the amenities we were looking for including great access to the Atlantic and a short boat ride to the Gulf. We will definitely be back!
