Mingle with manatees, dolphins, and seabirds at this sun-filled Marathon home, a dog-friendly angler's escape with a private 40-foot dock, a kayak for exploring the Florida Keys, and a spacious bayfront deck with views of the palms and the ocean.
This waterfront home is located on Knights Key, directly on the banks of an inlet made famous as a filming location for "Flipper." Whether you're in search of beaches or deep sea fishing, you'll enjoy easy access to the Atlantic Ocean - all just two blocks from the east end of the Seven Mile Bridge, five miles from Sombrero Beach, and 11 miles east of Bahia Honda State Park.
The living space is bright and lofty, offering high ceilings, large windows, and central air conditioning to keep you cool in the tropical warmth. Come home from a day on the water to relax on the plush furniture, use the WiFi to post a few photos, or catch a football game on the flatscreen cable TV.
Take morning paddles in the provided kayak, and return home to prepare breakfast in the full kitchen. This open room includes full-size appliances, a two-person breakfast table, and a small bar counter with seating for two. A dishwasher is also available to make cleanup a breeze.
Step outside onto the expansive gated deck, a scenic enclosed space where your dog can wander freely above the bay (please note that a small nightly pet fee applies). You'll find space for a 40-foot boat at the private dock. In addition, there is a bait freezer, a cleaning station, and a gas grill for preparing your fresh catch. There's a patio table for al fresco meals with beautiful sunset views.
At night, this two-bedroom (plus loft), two-bathroom Marathon home will accommodate as many as six guests. The master bedroom features a queen-size bed, while the guest room on the main floor has a set of twin beds. The third bedroom is an open loft that is accessed by a ladder-style staircase, offering two comfortable twin beds beneath the eaves.
Additional amenities include plentiful parking for trucks and boat trailers, as well as a private washer and dryer to keep your clothes free of salt, sand, and scales.
Thanks to its spectacular location between the Knights Key Channel and the open Atlantic Ocean, this home is a wonderful getaway for anglers, beach-goers, and all lovers of the South Florida sun. Watch manatees play in the inlet from the comfort of your deck, and take evening walks to the Sunset Grille & Raw Bar for dinner and cocktails just two blocks away.
Launch your boat from the dock to reach Sombrero Reef, an incredible collection of finger, brain, and lettuce coral that is frequented by schools of tropical fish, nurse sharks, barracudas, and stingrays. Or, spend the day at Sombrero Beach, Coco Plum Beach, and the gorgeous beach at Bahia Honda State Park.
