Waterfront home with dock, pool table & private pool - walk to Sombrero Beach

It's all about the outdoor living at this lovely, central Keys getaway! Your home away from home on Marathon features a private boat dock, pool, and pool table - and you’re walking distance to Sombrero Beach. Start your day on your wraparound deck, iced coffee in hand, enjoying that lovely water view. Take your time - you’re in the Keys, so there’s no rush. Back inside, whip up breakfast in your open, well-equipped kitchen, complete with all the gadgets and appliances you’ll need. There’s a dining area for six, but why not eat outside if it’s nice (and it probably is). If you’re leaving for the day, you can walk to the beach, fishing and boat charter outfitters, a marina, and restaurants. But why would you leave when you have a private resort right downstairs? Let your pup play in the enclosed yard of this dog-friendly home while you while away the afternoon in the pool or swing in one of the two hammocks. The mixologist of the group can use the downstairs, outdoor kitchen to whip up some boat drinks, and you can challenge them to a game of pool when they’re done. Want to spend the day on the boat? No problem - you’ve got that private dock and access to a shared boat launch. Bring home your catch and clean it on the fish-cleaning table, or take one of the home’s available kayaks for a spin. When it’s time to call it a night, settle in back upstairs on the comfy couch and flip on the TV - or head back out to that deck and enjoy the view.


Seven-day minimum stay
The boat launch is shared with 10 other homes in the area.

The house was nicely equipped for everyone! Plenty of seatinf in every room a nice open kitchen. The pool was awesome and the TV and bar area were great for meals and to get out of the sun. We loved having the kayaks and would definitely recommend to others!

Great location. Perfect house if you are bringing your boat!

Great location; community boat ramp is a plus but the seasonal seaweed stench takes some getting used to. Home is comfortable and stocked well. A/C and washer/dryer I are both fantastic. Great open layout that makes it feel larger than a 2BR. Waterfall Shower heads are a bonus!! Downstairs bar and pool table next to the pool are great! Would rent again.

This is a fantastic little vacation home in Marathon Florida, close to Sombrero Beach, close to Publix Food Mart, nice to have our own pool, good central location in the Keys. We loved every minute of it and will definitely book again for future vacations

Very nice home with great water access and views. The deck space is great and the ground floor outdoor living space and pool are outstanding. Amenities such as kayaks are nice and there is a ramp to the canal for easy launching. Sombrero beach right up the street.

Ideal location, the house was lovely with great elevated view, kayaks were a nice touch, the pool was great for unwinding and the dock was good. Slightly sketchy channel to navigate, but can't fault this place.
