Canal-front home remodeled for HGTV with private swimming pool

Completely remodeled by HGTV, this home boasts beautiful furnishings, perfect interior design, and timeless decor that will have you feeling right at home the moment you step through the door! The full kitchen is complete with stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, and a massive island, so cook up your favorite recipes with ease. Though the inside is a dream come true, make your way out back and you will find a fabulous custom pool on the edge of the dock overlooking the canal! If you don't feel like going inside after a day by the pool, grill up some fish on the gas grill and take advantage of the over-sized fish cleaning table to prepare the days catch! After the sun dips below the horizon, step back through the sliding glass doors and watch a movie on the 55-inch flatscreen TV while cozying up on the plush couches. Everyone will drift to sleep to the sound of the water nearby and recharge for the next day's activities!

Nice home on the canal. Great for taking the boat out to fish every day. Comfortable beds and it was nice having a washer and dryer available. Home does need more pots,pans and cookie sheets for cooking at the house.

We really loved staying at this house in "little Venice" in Marathon. Kitchen is unbelievable, fantastic bathroom and the ocean is like right there! Manatees visited us at the dock too. We will stay here again

We stayed 10 nights here in January 2022. This home was located in a central location just 2 miles from major grocery shopping and about a 10 minute car ride from Sombrero Beach. It was an easy one hour drive South to Key West and about 30 minutes North to Islamorada and the Bass Pro shop. The dock was perfect for the 24 foot boat we rented. There was a fish cleaning station although we didn’t have luck catching keeper fish. Although this home is just one house in from the Atlantic, it took about 15 minutes by boat to get out of the no wake zone due to the reefs and sandbar. The pool was nice and we enjoyed the outdoor bar table with awning at all times of the day. We saw manatees from the porch a few times which was fun. There was an adequate supply of bath and beach towels for a family of five.

When we arrived the house appeared clean minus a few major issues. The couch had a huge stain (so we flipped the cushions) and the master bedspread had a stain that looked like fecal matter. We started our vacation washing the bedspread. When I emailed the managing company about this since we arrived late at night, I never heard back from
them. The appliances were all fairly new and in excellent condition. The kitchen was fairly well stocked with all the basic dishes and utensils. A starter pack of supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent) is provided but then you need to resupply. There are no spices, oil etc. but the Dollar Tree is just two blocks away. There is also a local gym, coffee shop, and bagel store in walking distance. The beds were comfortable; the master bed is definitely on the softer side. Likely we just missed this through the photos, but we were surprised there wasn’t an attached master bathroom. The bathroom the master uses had the washer/dryer and a nice deep freezer. The shower valve in this room needs to be replaced as it was either freezing or scalding making it unusable. The room with the bunks has the bathroom in it. We had a lovely stay because we made our own fun…but for a family of five the home was a bit small and for the cost we expected more.

Loved the canal right out back. We were able to rent a boat for a few days and easy access to both gulf and Atlantic sides. We saw manatees a few times and parrot fish right at the stairs. Also being able to bring our dog was a huge plus.
Nicole K. Apr 2021
This home was perfect for our family. Beautiful view to the ocean, 2 manatees right off the dock, close to restaurants & stores. Heated pool was a must for my kids and they loved it. Would love to rent this house again in the keys.
Joshua C. Aug 2020
The canal is great! Quick access to the ocean. Quiet neighbors and peaceful relaxation. The set up of the house is great! Nice appliances as well. The house, lacked AC vents in the bedrooms. We ran box fans to keep them cool. The kitchen was cold but no where else. The roof had 2 leaks and 1 of the leaks went straight into a suitcase!!! We only had 2 rolls of TP and 2 rolls of papwertowels which I thought was insufficient for the week. The trash bags were lacking as well.
Manager response:
Hi, Joshua! We appreciate you staying with us and telling us about your experience. The home does have vents in each room, so we are surprised to read you were having any issues with this. We were also very surprised to hear about a leak and have thoroughly inspected the roof to ensure it is in good condition. Please note we only provide a starting amount of consumable supplies to help our guests get settled upon arrival. Thank you!

House was awesome. And great location.
Albert And Paola D. Jul 2020
We loved this house so much, everything is new and the pool is great size for kids and the dick has great space for two boats, the rooms all have fans and the Ac cooled great. Bathrooms had towels and beach towels, and the washer and dryer are in great condition, we didn’t know which days were trash days which I would have liked to know since we missed one.
Landon W. Jun 2020
Perfect fit! We docked the boat right outside and had easy access to the Ocean & Gulf. The pool, while small, was great for cooling off and soaking up the sun. We had plenty of room inside & outside for whatever the day had in store!
Scott C. Jun 2020
This is a freshly renovated house so everything is new. The location is great, very close to Vaca cut to hit the Gulf side or the channel out to Atlantic. The pool is great, no lap swimming but awesome to have to cool off. Negative is no AC vents in one of the bedrooms. Leave the door open and the AC blows right in. Also the living room near dock has no AC vents so the provided fan is a must to blow the cool air over. Parking is tight especially getting down dead end road with a boat. I have a 25' boat and had to pull into the street before and back it down to the house. It is right and you will need someone to watch blind spots. Overall great house and good location.
