Dog-friendly, oceanview retreat w/ 35-ft dockage, great for families & fishing!

Stay dockside at this dog-friendly Florida Keys beach house. Perfect for the serious fisherman searching for a trophy, the urban professional looking for an escape, or the family with a dog in tow, this home is a colorful paradise.

Located on Vaca Key, the area where the 1960s sitcom Flipper was filmed, this bayfront home is the ideal basecamp for a fishing or boating vacation. It features 35 feet of dock where you can anchor your boat or launch the home's provided kayak. You may even spot a manatee in the shallow ends! Being on the Keys, there are tons of beaches nearby like Sombrero and Calusa. For a casual dinner out, walk over to the popular Sunset Bar and Grille for conch fritters and tuna tartar.

The property itself provides plenty of parking for your truck and trailer. A cleaning station and bait freezer help you prep your dinner while the gas grill heats up on the furnished deck, which is also gated so your dog and toddlers can safely run around. Grill up a freshly caught snapper as you enjoy the Florida heat--now that's a vacation!

Within this brightly colored loft home are accommodations for up to six guests. A homey living room has a flatscreen TV with cable so you can catch the big game after dinner. A well-stocked kitchen with glass-top stove has all the basic tools, you just need to provide to food (there's a Winn-Dixie just about three miles away).

Cozy and comfy, this home offers two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and a fun loft area for the kids to take with two twin beds. Wake up to the sun streaming through the ample windows, brightened by the rainbow of tropical colors and decor throughout the home.

If you're bringing your dog, please note that a nightly pet fee applies. Additional amenities include a private washer/dryer so you can freshen up your bathing suits, air conditioning for those humid nights, WiFi, and two more TVs.

Maybe you'll be busy on the water all day, but if not, there's tons to do in the area! Take a scenic drive close to the end of the Keys for Higgs Beach Dog Park to let your furry friend enjoy the vacation. It's close to the famous Ernest Hemingway House and Museum (populated by cats; not for Fido!), and by Louie's Backyard, a restaurant many dog owners and their pals relax at after rolling around in the sand.

Brighten up your life with a stay at this dog-friendly Marathon, Florida vacation rental by the bay!

House was well cleaned and fairly ready for us when we arrived. This is our 5th or 6th year going to this house and it continues to be well maintained and managed. The storage room for rods and equipment is a real plus and this room was in excellent condition as well. I'm happy to recommend this property and the management company.

Our family had such a good time at this home. Perfect location with separate bedrooms, baths, nice kitchen, washer/dryer, fabulous deck, parking. Deck overlooks ocean access. Kitchen is well equipped and plenty of towels and linen. We will come back next year.

We had a wonderful week at Fisherman's Prime with our college kids! It was a great location...snorkeled Sombrero, fished for yellowtail (got lucky one day), walked over to Sunset Grille to have a drink, relax in the pool, listen to live music and watch the sunset after going out in the boat all day. The dock is great....saw Manatee every day...just a short distance to the storage for our rods. The back deck was great to view the beautiful ocean and have coffee in the morning.

We loved our stay in Marathon! We had four manatee at the dock almost everyday. We will definitely book this location again.

The home is very charming and in the perfect location for a family looking to fish, lobster, or dive. The location is at the beginning of the 7 Mile Bridge, which allows instant access to both the Gulf and Atlantic. This offers every kind of fishing opportunity one could ask for. Great docking area for your boat and a very convenient lower storage room a short walk from the dock for storing gear. Great deck area for dining at sunset or enjoying coffee at sunrise. Would highly recommend to anyone!
