A vacation rental like no other, The Roseate House is sure to please. From its custom beach entry pool that starts under the house to its one-with-nature outdoor living area with fireplace, flat screen and furnishings to the gas tiki torches and raised sand beach, you will fall in love with this property like no other. It is the ideal vacation home for everyone from the couple looking for romance to the family looking to add to its vacation memories. Come live among the coconut tree tops and experience the magic this home has to offer. (Note to honeymooners....the minimum contract age requirement is waived for your "just married", party of two! Please inquire with additional questions.)

The home is a three bedroom, two bath Key West style stilt home with wrap around deck and french doors that rim most of the house affording stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico from the dining, living, sitting ares and kitchen. The master bedroom with porch and outdoor sitting area has a south pacific flare in its decor and a king size bed. An eclectic shower and bath are en suite with access to the back porch. A large guest room with queen size bed, french doors and porch with sitting area is whimsically decorated with driftwood style furnishings and a typical South Florida motif. A beautiful second bathroom is also located on the main level of the home next to the laundry closet with new front loading washer and stack dryer. A spiral staircase leads to the loft where there is another bedroom with two twin beds designed and decorated to appeal to the juvenile or teen traveler. All bedding is sumptuous cotton 600 ct. thread count or greater.

The dining, living, sitting areas and kitchen are all open to one another and on the water. The kitchen takes center stage and is slightly elevated from the other areas. It is a brand new kitchen from the ground up with top of the line appliances, cabinets and hardware. Even the most avid chef will be impressed with the fully equipped kitchen and taken back by the intoxicating views. You can expect to find an extensive array of spices, oils and other condiments for guest use. The surrounding living areas are decorated with an eclectic and vintage touch in colors of aqua, coral, yellow and white washed taupe.

The wrap around deck is furnished with upscale Woodard outdoor furniture. Take a nap in the ultra comfortable chaise lounges while you listen to the sway of the palms. Enjoy a meal or family game around the custom outdoor dining set with hand laid mosaic tabletop.

Downstairs is where you will most likely spend most of your time. An outdoor living area has been created under the house with bamboo vaulted ceiling and cove lighting and Leonardo french tumbled marble on the floor and continuing out and around the pool making up the pool deck. The area can be enjoyed in most weather. A 55' flat screen hangs above the outdoor bar. You can watch your favorite show from any of the sitting areas under the house. Besides the bar with stools, there is an area with two oversized chairs and oversized ottomans around the gas fire pit. There is also a great table with incredibly comfortable chairs by Gloster that is perfect for dining, chatting, or playing games.

The beach entry of the swimming pool begins under the house also. This is a very shallow area of the pool ideal for small children or those who do not like climbing the traditional pool ladders to get in and out. This area is shaded at all times as it is covered...again making it ideal for children or those who would just like to dip their feet without sitting in the sun. We did not; however, forget you sun worshipers. You will find a submerged sun ledge on one end of the resort style pool where you can enjoy the comfortable Frontgate loungers and soak up some rays. The other end of the pool has a deep end with sitting bench and oversized spa. The marble pool deck is rimmed with planters that are home to beautiful birds of paradise plants and also house the gas tiki torches that make the evenings extra special...along with the stars, of course. Just beyond the pool deck is the sand beach, coral seawall and dock. Watch the summer sunsets from any of these areas for a real treat!

The dock is equipped with fresh water, electricity, fish cleaning table, bench and dolphin poles for boat tie out. Many times manatees have been sighted under the dock. It is possible to catch all kinds of fish from the dock. Guests have even caught tarpon and cobia off the dock! Watching the fish attracted to the underwater fish lights in the evening makes you feel like you are part of a huge backyard aquarium.

The home offers two kayaks for your enjoyment. We have an excellent shoreline for snorkeling and kayaking. The Gulf is accessed by a couple of coral steps that descend into the water through the coral seawall. There is a wonderful bay approximately 6 houses to the west where you can see all kinds of wildlife including sea turtles at times from your kayak.

The landscape is mature, very lush, and tropical. There are more than 80 species of plants, flowers and trees on the property...many of them marked with resort style markers. Enjoy the intoxicating scents of night blooming jasmine, orange and grapefruit trees, allspice trees and rum bay plants at various times of the year.

And for the icing on the cake, this home offers a MOSQUITO ABATEMENT SYSTEM around the entire property making mosquitos and noseeums almost nonexistent. This is a state of the art system that is not harmful to people or animals....just mosquitos, noseeums and other insects.

The entire property is smoke free both inside and out. There is a maximum occupancy of 6 and is strictly enforced. Please, no more than 4 adults over the age of 21 unless you are prior guests invited back or apply for special consideration. 4 adults and 2 children is fine. NOTE: We are unable to accommodate weddings and parties. There are no exceptions. Third Party Rentals Not Accepted. Sorry no pets.

NEW AT THE ROSEATE HOUSE: TWO PADDLE BOARDS!!

About Heidi Berka

We live in the State of Wisconsin. I am from Green Bay and my husband from Milwaukee. We fell in love with the Florida Keys a number of years ago when we were married in Key West. We found ourselves coming back for a warm up every winter until one year we were driving down US 1 in the Keys and saw the sign 'Open House Today-Waterfront'. We stopped only for fun and then realized we truly wanted our own little paradise in the Keys. Six weeks later we were back and looked at 39 houses in 2 1/2 days. We pulled in the driveway of the Roseate House and new it was the one before even going inside. Since that time the home has undergone nearly a million dollar renovation with brand new pool, furnishings, draperies, kitchen, bath, laundry, outdoor living area, landscaping enhancements, etc.

Heidi Berka purchased this house in 2009

Just What Our Family Needed

  • 5 of 5

There is just no way to describe this home, this vacation. Our family needed a break and from the moment we arrived until the day we left, we felt at home. We all cried when we had to leave, and we cried when we got home. No where have we ever felt such a longing to be back there. The dock, the beautiful view. We may be here in Ohio but we left our hearts at the Roseate House, on the bench on the dock. It is not enough to say you will make memories. We are a changed family for the better. Thank you Heidi and Jeff.

Paradise on Morton Street!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been going to the Rosetta House since 2007 and just couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. The charm of the old Florida style house to the sunset views is just amazing! Your right on the Gulf of Mexico. Since Heidi and Jeff purchased the Rosetta there have been great changes and we can't wait each new year to see what has been done. I think so far my favorite is the outdoor bathroom! So if you get a chance to go to Marathon you would definitely love the Rosetta without a doubt!

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from staying at Roseate House for a week. 4 adults and 2 7 year olds! Perfect relaxing vacation before the start of the school year. Everything was perfect. The views of the gulf are beautiful and watched the sunset from the dock a couple nights! The outdoor area is amazing. The kids spent the majority of the time in the pool and they had a great time snorkeling off the dock! Saw lots of sea life! Enjoyed watching a few small tarpon at night around the dock light! We used the up to date kitchen almost nightly and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The loft was perfect for the kids! We hope to return in the future!

Fantasy House!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home on the gulf front of Grassy Key! Sunrise and Sunset views were spectacular from the private dock! This home is decorated with some amazing artwork, updated appliances and bathrooms, lovely views and old key west charm. Lots of small details are in this house. I can't possibly list them all! The out door area is stunning! It features lush tropical landscaping, a pool/hot tub combo, tiki torches, fire pit, bar, lots of sitting areas and ping pong table. Kayaks and paddle boards were a real plus. My favorite part was the out door bathroom, complete with bamboo walls, hanging vines and chic lighting, you could imagine you were in a 5 star get a way in Bora Bora!

WONDERFUl !!! HOPE TO VISIT AGAIN!!!!

  • 5 of 5

GREAT!!! Thanks Heidi and Jeff for having us at the Roseate House. When we arrived everything was just as listed on VRBO, just beautiful and ready for our enjoyment. The home couldn't have been better. The pool and spa were wonderful, we really enjoyed the tropical setting. The sea life off the dock was great in the daytime for snorkeling and at night for fish watching or fishing. My granddaughters loved the paddle boards and kayaks. The outdoor bath facilities worked great also. We visited lots of great restaurants close to the house and many of the state parks. My family watched fireworks off Sombrero Beach, Steve and I watched beautiful fireworks off the dock at the house. We've stayed in many beach houses throughout the years, but this was the best. Would highly recommend the Roseate House to anyone for a fabulous vacation. Thanks again for your hospitality, Carole
