Looking for a tropical island escape that can handle your large group of fishermen? Look no further than this dog-friendly Marathon vacation rental, a sprawling five-bedroom home with a private pool, a dock and electricity for three boats, a pool table, and plenty of space for up to 12 guests. It's guaranteed to deliver an incredible stay in the Florida Keys!
Tucked into the lush, tropical landscape of Marathon, this home resides just blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, with quick access to tons of water-themed activities. It's also within walking distance of the tranquil sugar sand shores at Sombrero Beach, while shopping, dining, and entertainment sit north and south on the Overseas Highway.
Kick off your sandals as you step inside and feel stress drift away in the home's comfortable interior. Each room is exquisitely appointed with Florida accents, including tiled floors, ceiling fans, light colors, and premium furniture. Rest easy on plush couches in the spacious living area, where you can flip on the flatscreen and settle in with a favorite cable series under the refreshing breeze of an overhead fan.
Make sure to bring along your swimsuit so you don't miss out on glorious days in the screened-in pool, which sits on the back patio. Also on the back patio is a Tiki hut - a perfect place to enjoy frosty cocktails and great conversation. You might also want to spend some time in the ocean while you're here, and with a dock that you can drive a boat right up to, you'll be able to do just that! Fishermen - this is the home for you! In addition to a 100-foot dock, there's is a fish-cleaning station, a deep freezer, a smoker, and a vacuum-sealer (in case you want to take your catch home!).
Come home from a sun-soaked day on the high seas to whip up a Florida-inspired feast in the open concept kitchen. You'll find all the necessary cooking accessories for homemade breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus granite countertops for laying out snacks and a dishwasher for quick cleanup. Dine together at nearby indoor tables, which include a wooden table, a café table, and a wicker table on a screened-in porch. For a little sunshine while you eat, take your meal onto the upstairs sundeck, where you'll also find loungers for suntanning.
Afterward, challenge your group to a tournament on the pool table, freshen up your beach wardrobe in the washer/dryer, or connect to the WiFi for updating friends and family back home over social media.
Retire at the end of the day for a great night's sleep in any of five bedrooms. There are king-size beds in two bedrooms, one bedroom with a queen and double beds, a fourth bedroom with a queen bed, and a fifth bedroom that's perfect for your kids with a twin bed bunk set and electric green walls adorned with tropical fish. Wind down with a refreshing soak in the walk-in, stone shower in the master suite, or leash up your dog (with a small nightly fee, two dogs can come along) and walk around the tropical neighborhood.
Wake up with a fresh-brewed cup of coffee in the kitchen, then start planning a new day of adventures. Ready for some fun-filled day trips? Take your whole family to get up close and personal with local sea life at the Dolphin Research Center, or lace up some sturdy shoes for a nature hike around Curry Hammock State Park. You could also book a charter fishing adventure and head out for a day of world-class sport fishing, or rent scuba diving gear and explore the underwater reefs offshore. If you have a bit of time, drive south to Key West for boutique shops, historic landmarks, and world-famous nightlife along Duval Street.
