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

Enjoy endless open water views from anywhere on this acre-sized, Gulf-front estate. Coconut palms, private hot tub & pool, boat ramp, and a newly built private dock great for catching fish or spectacular sunsets. Like a resort, you can play giant chess on the beach, win at ping pong, take out a kayak, or paddle board or stroll through fabulous gardens.

This home is a private oasis but still part of Marathon. It hits you the moment you pass the discreet open gate into the long forest drive. The natural hardwood hammock ends in a stunning seascape. This elegant concrete stilt home stands on a 140 foot wide, private sand beach. You won't want to leave once you get here.

Even though it's a short walk to several quaint, Keys-style restaurants, and the Dolphin Research Center, this hidden gem feels like your own private resort. And best of all, theres no need to get up early to reserve a recliner!

Enter the house and be instantly mesmerized by the view of the gulf. The large open living area highlights the blue waters 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, free WiFi, and indoor dining for eight. A portable bluetooth soundbox is provided for your enjoyment. Use it in house, by the pool, or in the lower level recreational area.

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 steaks on the high-end barbecue by the pool or over the beachside fire pit. This home was built for entertaining.

Four ample bedrooms, each with a tv, 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. This home sleeps eight easily. And of course, there's a new front load laundry in the hallway.

After a light breakfast on the balcony, (also seats eight easily) take your morning coffee and stroll through the young orchard full of exotic tropical fruit trees and plants like dragon fruit, sapodilla and carambola. Or, take your stroll down the 285 foot peer, a great time to spot sealife. Catch some sun on the beach, dip into the warm Gulf waters for a refreshing swim, or explore the marine life from the dock with provided 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 with dolphin piles for safe mooring.

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 (we counted more than 60 chairs or loungers). Enjoy a good book, watch the pelicans race for the best fish, or listen to the high-pitched call of the local osprey. When the water is still and you're quiet, you might spot a pod of dolphins moving gracefully just offshore or a manatee swimming under the dock.

The day ends in the hot tub, on the balcony, or at the beach with a cool drink as you watch the sunset paint the sky in its afterglow. 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 three bedrooms, 32-inch TV and DVD player in the twin bedroom, beach bocce ball set, and even a Keurig coffee maker.

Property and house is great for a family or couples sleeping up to 8 comfortably. Great layout as bedrooms are spread out into the 4 corners of the house
Cynthia A. July 2018
First the long pier and romantic sunsets were so amazing, the house had everything we needed, we had so much fun, this was an all adult vacation no kids but we sure acted like kids again, playing at the pool. Then going to bed in those most comfortable beds, they are queen size not kings but it didn't matter. We slept well from the first til the last night... Oh bring bug spray there are some no see ums that bite you up when your not looking, everyone had major bites on them...but who cares we had a great time. Oh its centrally located so key west is easy to get to and so is key largo....

We travel significantly and actually have two rental cabins in the North Carolina mountains along with our own. This house was the best prepared vacation home we have ever stayed in. Not only was is very clean but well stocked with appliances and equipment which was in great shape. The protected water made it a great place for young and old to play in the water. The pool and spa were easy to use and clean with plenty of chairs. The locations is extremely private, do not let the entrance fool you, typical keys, use google earth to look at the site. You can hear the dolphin talking from the Dolphin Research Center just next door. Should we return to the Keys again with our family this will be our base once more.

Beautiful home and grounds. Loved the long dock and incredible sunsets!
Fred And Gail H. November 2017
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.
