Gulf-front retreat w/ private heated pool, hot tub, boat ramp & new dock!

Enjoy the unobstructed open water view from anywhere on this acre-sized, Gulf-front estate. Enjoy palm trees, a private hot tub, pool, a boat ramp, and a newly built private dock great for catching spectacular sunset views. Dock is 285 ft, with 8 ft x20 ft deck- fish, snorkel, boat from the dock. Dock has pilings to tie the boat up at all times. Home has a new chess set outside right along the beach area great for all the family to use.

This home is very private and still part of Marathon. This elegant concrete stilt home stands on a wide, sand beach, the house prominent on the shore. You won't want to leave once you arrive. Even though it's a short walk to several quaint, Keys-style restaurants, a sheltered deep water marina, and the Dolphin Research Center, this hidden gem feels like a private resort.

It hits you the moment you pass the discreet open gate onto the long forest drive. The natural hardwood hammock ends in a stunning seascape on a 140-foot wide private beach with coconut palms.

Enter the house and the large open living area, which highlights the blue waters of the Gulf through a wall of glass doors to the massive balcony. The great room boasts elegant, white, top-grain leather seating, a wide flatscreen TV with DVD player, cable, Netflix, high-speed internet and indoor dining for eight. Home also has a soundbox that is portable and can connect to blue tooth so you listen to your music down by the pool area or under the home. Under the home has new seating to eat out by the pool or just sit and relax in the couch area next to the pool.

The fabulous gourmet kitchen keeps your chef in the conversation. Custom granite counters, a chic-tiled backsplash, stainless appliances, and lots of gadgets add to the ambiance. Keeping it outside? You can grill your finest steaks on the high-end barbecue by the pool. This home was built for entertaining. After a light breakfast on the balcony, (also seats eight easily) take your morning coffee and stroll through the gardens. There are papayas, bananas, starfruit, mango, avocado, dragon fruit, lemons, and many more exotic trees.

Four ample bedrooms, three with queen beds and ocean views, the fourth, with two extra long twin beds and large windows overlooking the tropical gardens. Three full bathrooms are finished with travertine stone or tile and of course, there's a new front load laundry in the hallway. This home sleeps eight guests easily.

Catch some sun on the beach, dip into the warm Gulf waters for a refreshing swim, or explore the marine life with your mask and snorkel. Use the private boat ramp to launch your medium/small boat or jet skis during high tide, or use the kayaks or paddle boards for a little exercise. Boating and fishing enthusiasts will love the addition of a newly constructed long dock.

This home features a seemingly endless array of amenities that includes a movie library, a book library, music, adult games, board games, ping pong table, children's toys, crib and bedding available, high chair, 32 inch Roku TVs in 3 bedrooms, 32 inch TV and DVD player in the twin bedroom, beach bocce ball set, and even a Keurig coffee maker.

Stiff muscles? Relax in the hot tub, then plunge into the pool. Or just relax on one of the many recliners or Adirondack chairs and be mesmerized by the sea. Enjoy a good book, watch the pelicans race for the best fish, or listen to the high pitch call of the local osprey. When the water is still and you're quiet, you might even spot a pod of dolphins moving gracefully just offshore.

The day ends in the hot tub, on the balcony, or at the beach with a cool drink as you watch the sunset and paint the sky in its afterglow. Book this home for your next Marathon getaway today!

Clean, Very good use instructions. Refrigerator had issues and broken pool pump was replaced within a day. Good weather kept us all happy

We had a trip planned for months before the hurricane so decided to go. I’d like to revisit the area next year once they’ve recovered. A lot of debris still very visible. We did enjoy what the area had to offer & would encourage others to go.

This property is as beautiful as the photos suggest, it is also really well equipped, with everything that you could possibly need to cook fantastic local food for your stay and 5 kayaks for those in your party who want to enjoy the local waters of the Gulf. I had a call within a few hours of arriving from the owner, who had arranged for the housekeeper to leave out a bottle of bubbly for our arrival - which was much appreciated and a very nice touch. This property offers complete privacy, enclosed in lovely gardens and with safe and shallow waters for children and adults alike to enjoy either by kayak or swimming. Keep an eye out for the baby nurse sharks, wild dolphins (we saw them at dawn and dusk 3 times) and other juvenile fish that like to hang out just off the beach here - this makes for great snorkelling too. We will be back for sure!

The house is in good condition and great place, the view of the sea is incredible, the pool is well heated and clean, but the furniture in the bedrooms are horrible and uncomfortable, there are not enough TVs to share with the family, considering that children and adults have to share a single TV
Manager Response:
We are appreciative of the guest's comments regarding the home's interior. The owners are excited to announce that they have made many improvements to an already amazing house. There are simply too many to list but among the additions are game & toys for the children, new TVs in the bedrooms, snorkel and bocci ball equipment. The interior has been given a wonderful facelift that adds charm and the mattress has been replaced. You have to see it in person to believe it! Thank you.
