Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Marathon - The Toucan At Ray's Place

Stand Alone Cottage On An Oceanfront Property

A beautiful cottage is awaiting you on Grassy Key. Built in the original Keys architecture, the cottage is free standing with windows on all sides. The efficiency holds true to its name as it is small, but very functional. Being a stone's throw away from the ocean you can enjoy partial ocean views from your bed on the west and from your dining table on the east. It offers everything you need for a good night's sleep, a refreshing shower and a good breakfast before you start your day in tropical paradise.

After a day full of adventures don't forget to relax at our oceanfront tiki and hammock. From here there is no telling what wildlife might amaze you. If marveling at the beauty of the ocean from the shore doesn't satisfy your fascination for the ocean, then treat yourself to an outing on one of our kayaks. Head for the nearby rock ruins and be prepared to see many dazzling fish.

...back on shore, it's time to eat and we do not feel like cooking or getting in the car to find a restaurant, not a problem, the Grassy Key Outpost restaurant is next door offering a nice selection of dishes, it is also a convenience store (closed on Mondays).

In our neighborhood, Tursi, Gambit and friends are waiting to put on a show for you at the Dolphin Research Center. Home to Flipper in the 60's, DRC is located 1/4 of a mile from the property.

One mile south of us is Curry Hammock State Park. Ten miles north is Long Key State Park. Both have wonderful ocean access and trails.

Three miles out to sea is marker 45, a nice place to fish mangrove and yellowtail snappers, and a few more miles South is Coffin's Patch Reef, a delightful protected area to dive or snorkel. Both locations are a few minutes away by boat from the property.

These are merely suggestions in addition to all the wonderful things that are yours to discover throughout the Florida Keys.

Amenities At A Glance:

-Free use of kayaks

-Barbecue

-WiFi

-Washer and dryer on property.

-Conveniently located in the middle of the Keys at mile marker 58. Ideal for day trips from Marathon to Key West, Key Largo and Islamorada.

- Buoys right off property in the Atlantic for small boats, jets skis and kayaks.

- Beach towels

- Beach chairs

Great place to stay with views of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved the little cottage, very private, not part of a big resort! We could see the ocean from our window and a short walk to the private beach and cabana. Great location to visit Marathon and Islamorada!

Cozy and relaxing!

Lovely little cottage steps from the water. Very friendly owners, a clean and tidy room with a full refrigerator and kitchenette. A great spot to explore the Keys without being in the crowds of Key West. Highly recommend!!

Charming cabin near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The description is accurate -- it is an authentic and charming little cottage 60 ft from the ocean, clean and in good shape. The owners are very nice, helpful, and pleasant to visit with. Their personal advice helped make the stay pleasant, and they were very easy to deal with. The cottage has everything needed to have a nice stay in the Florida keys.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as pictured, clean, and even better than expected. Owners were friendly and very easy to deal with. Great deal for the $. Quiet location on the ocean with amazing views. Other properties are on site, but was a very peaceful set up. Loved kayaking and the tiki hut. We will definitely be back, maybe next time in the upstairs condo! Thanks so much, we look forward to our next visit.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our 10th year wedding anniversary. This little cottage was amazing. They had everything you needed there and then some. The property is right on the water with relaxing chairs, a tiki, and an awesome hammock for 2. (Just watch out for falling coconuts above lol) Isabelle was so sweet and welcoming. Really felt like home when we would return after our long days adventures. The bed was nice BUT the pillows were AWESOME. We wanted to take them home :) !!! Extremely clean and really just the quaintest, cutest, quietest experience. We did not want to leave and will DEFINATELY hope that it is available when we want to go on our next outing to the Keys. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!!!!!!!!!
