Overview

About the property

Fisherman's Easy Access to Gulf, Waterfront, 60 ft Dock, Pool, Hot Tub, Sleeps 8

Our home is available as a weekly rental from 4 p.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Saturday.

With quick, easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic Ocean, this home is perfect for fishing, snorkeling and boating. This three-bedroom, two-bath home, which sleeps eight, has a 60-foot dock with ample room for your boat. It is only one house away from the mouth of a deep-water canal that leads directly to the Gulf. There is plenty of off-street parking for your vehicles and boat trailer. A free local boat ramp is just a few blocks away. This home is designed for people who love to fish. It has a bait freezer, fish-cleaning station and deluxe gas grill. After you prepare your catch, you can dine indoors or outdoors on the wraparound deck while watching the sunset.

After a day of fishing and boating, take a dip in the swimming pool; then relax with friends and family in the hot tub. Outside lighting illuminates the deck and pool and adds to the romance and ambience of the evening. You can also enjoy your favorite movies with the free WIFI and DVR from one of the four flat screen TVs.

Your vacation home is located at the end of a quiet street between a canal and nature sanctuary. So, after a restful night, start your day watching the sunrise over the peaceful nature preserve while sitting in the Adirondack captain chairs on the east deck. Take advantage of the adjacent nature preserve to canoe or kayak to one of the locals' favorite snorkeling areas.

With more than 1,700 square feet under air, this home has multiple entertaining areas where you can spend time with family and friends or quiet time alone. The entry level has a den that offers an entertaining area with a TV, sleeper sofa and love seat. Adjacent to the den is the master bedroom with a king-size bed and its own TV. The master bathroom is conveniently located near the pool and hot tub. Upstairs there is an open-plan living and dining area with a TV and well-equipped kitchen. There is also a full bath, and two more bedrooms—one with a king-size bed and TV and another with two twins. All the beds come with luxurious memory foam, extra blankets, and pillows.

The pool is heated in the winter at 85 degrees.

This is a nonsmoking home. Smoking is NOT allowed inside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home is wonderful! Plenty of room for our 24ft center console. The pool is very refreshing! It's so nice to walk out the back door, hop on the boat and head out to go fishing or even go to the restaurant! A week here is not enough time!

A Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners Greg and Melinda are so nice and so helpful. A beautifully presented home, in a fantastic and very quiet location. Great fishing on the dock side with immediate access to the gulf with our hire boat for some awesome Barracuda sport around the nearby islands.

Will definitely be back.

The upper deck is perfect for evening meals and socializing. Your minutes from anything you will need. The owners are great and very helpful if you have any questions.

Wonderful vacation at a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Marathon. The property was clean and well maintained. The location was absolutely the best with easy access on the canal to the gulf. We actually caught fish in the canal!! House was perfect and provided all the necessities. Owners were very nice and eager to help. Hope to stay here again next year.
