Bayfront house w/ ocean views, dock & easy beach access - dogs ok!

Why not spend your next vacation in the wonderful sun and water of the Florida Keys? This bayfront house offers ocean views, a dock, and dog-friendly accommodations for up to six guests to feel right at home!

Located at the westernmost point of Marathon on Vaca Key where "Flipper" was filmed, this house sits right on the bay with plenty of room for parking a boat and trailer and is within easy walking distance of the well-known restaurant, Sunset Bar and Grille. A quick drive east will bring you to more restaurants and shops, and the long stretch of Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail is nearby for some exercise with great views!

The house itself has a bright and fun atmosphere, with ample touches of wood and colorful animal sculptures lining the walls. Grab a seat on a variety of furniture in the living room to sip your morning coffee, enjoy a conversation, watch something on the flatscreen TV, or browse on WiFi after a long day.

A deck outside is great for soaking up some sun in patio furniture while looking out on the bay or dining at the round patio table. There's also a gas grill and a hot pink picnic table for a lavish island-style barbecue. If you have a boat, you can dock it easily right outside the house and your two dogs will love roaming free on your gated deck (please note a small, nightly pet fee).

Back inside, a compact but fully equipped kitchen lets you cook whatever you wish, with all the essentials you're used to plus a coffeemaker and dishwasher for convenience. Everyone will fit around the dining table inside if you don't want to brave the heat.

Two bedrooms and a loft provide sleeping arrangements for up to six guests. The two bedrooms each feature a queen bed and a TV while the loft if fitted with three twin beds. There are two full bathrooms and a private washer/dryer for taking care of any laundry.

This house is ideal for both a family with kids and serious fishermen, who will love the bait freezer, cleaning station, and easy ocean access. On the island, you can kayak with manatees in the bay, learn about and see dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center (great for kids), and see more wildlife at the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center.

Marathon sits in a great position to be able to reach the lower keys as well as mainland Florida - drive out to Key West to see where the great Ernest Hemingway resided and take part in great sport fishing. Head the other way and discover the shopping and nightlife Miami Beach is known for. Wherever you choose to go, you'll be surrounded by shimmering emerald water, beautiful white sand, and as much sun as you can handle.

This Florida vacation will truly be one to remember - book today!

We have been staying in either #4 or #12 Kyle Way in Marathon for many years---always thoroughly enjoying the accommodations, and the peace which comes from said accommodations and their locations. Sunrise views from the deck of #12 this year were amazing, as was the evening sky on clear nights. Entrance keys this year to #12 were easily accessed, and the interior was cozy and welcoming. All necessary equipment was provided in the kitchen, which allowed for the preparation of our meals "in." Sleeping was easy, as the air-conditioning was more than willing to keep us cool. The dock space and cleaning table were, as always, convenient for use for a week of successful fishing. Thank you, VaCasa, for once again providing us with a memorable holiday in paradise.

Dock was in good shape and very convenient for fishing. New TV's throughout and a comfortable tempurpedic king size bed in the master bedroom. Staff was very attentive and helpfull. Booked for another trip immediately! Will keep booking every year!

Our party of four 60 year-old men came to Marathon to fish. This home is located at the northern end of the Seven Mile Bridge. In 10 minutes, we were at the fishing spot. In two days, we hooked into four tarpon but could not land any. Oh well. The house is very clean and has several amenities. However, the stairs to the loft are steep and narrow. Be careful and hold on tight. The two bedrooms on the mail floor are spacious and decorated with nautical themes. The outside deck is huge. Conversation piece furniture and a nice glass top table with wicker chairs. Gas grill came in handy. Wifi worked well. And lastly, the room on the ground floor was heaven. A place for all your rod and reels. Extra shelving to store your gear, Refrigerator and Freezer, and a cool looking kayak for your use. We most likely will be back!

This was a very nice home. Small but clean. The only problem we had was that you had to climb a very steep ladder to the loft to do laundry. These steps are not for the faint of heart. Any chance laundry could be moved downstairs or on the deck?

The location, the house, and the support staff.

First time renting a house...very nervous of what to expect. Wonderful and will do again in the future.

Loved the place. The construction next door was a bit loud.
Jack H. December 2017
Lovely view from the nice deck. Unit is very small, kitchen difficult to work in. Laundry is in the loft accessed by a ladder. Your wife won't like that, I would guess!

Great place, well stocked and maintained. I was a little worried booking it after the hurricane when so many other places were damaged but the property appears to of come through without any problems. A testament to the construction or the speed of repairs made. Either way great place. Will book again when in the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The kids loved the loft area!! The house is clean and efficient! We especially loved being able to park our boat right outside on the private dock. We also loved visiting with the manatees! They came to visit almost every day!! The location is a perfect halfway point from Key Largo or Key West. Lots of dining choices nearby!!
Manuel P. June 2017
Greatest location on Marathon especially if you have a boat. Access to the ocean, the gulf, fuel, bait, food, you name it this location has it. Great family memories where had here.
Jeff . June 2017
1/2 mile ride to the 7 Mile Bridge tarpon grounds, 1/2 mile to fuel/ice docks, easy access to bayside, Sombrero Reef and the offshore fishing grounds. This location has it all.
Lockable storage for gear downstairs. Fridge/freezer downstairs for drinks, food, bait etc. Great dock and fish cleaning table.
This spot has it all.
John & Lauren E. April 2017
This is a great location.
