In search of tropical views and blissful privacy in the Florida Keys? This beautiful and Marathon home provides guests with their very own beach, swimming pool, and dock on serene Florida Bay.

Scenically situated on Grassy Key Bay, this bright and updated home places the very best of the Florida Keys at your fingertips, whether you're planning a family weekend of fishing or a relaxing reunion in the sun.

With its high ceilings, comfortable seating, flatscreen TV, WiFi, and large windows that frame the bay, the living room is tailor-made for large groups of all ages.

Whip up breakfast in the pristine full kitchen, and head out to the beach while the dishwasher cleans up. A bar counter provides seating for four while the open dining room has ample space for six.

But with so much natural beauty just outside the door, guests will spend most of their days sunbathing on the private beach, cooling off in the outdoor pool, or watching the sunset from the hammock and Adirondack chairs.

Kayakers will find eight kayaks to take out on the bay while guests with their own boat can use the private dock. Looking to test your hand at fishing in these world-famous waters? Use the outdoor cleaning station to prepare your catch for the gas grill.

With four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this home can host as many as eight guests. The master bedroom has a queen bed and a private balcony, two bedrooms have a queen bed apiece, and a fourth features two sets of twin bunk beds. There's also a sofabed for a bit of extra space. Two family dogs are also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

Beloved for its balmy weather, clear water, and intricate coral reefs, the Marathon island chain is full of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Kids will be thrilled with a visit to the Dolphin Research Center half a mile away while nature lovers should explore the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center nine miles west.

Spend quality time with your family and friends in the tropical outdoors—reserve this stunning Florida Keys home today!

About Vacasa, FL - Florida Keys Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

amazing week

  • 5 of 5

The house was more beautiful than the pictures. The dock was out of this world.

The house was labeled and organized perfectly. Loved the outdoor kitchen,chilled pool, bait freezer and ice machine. Having a marina around the corner was pretty handy as well. We have stayed in numerous houses in marathon and this was our favorite.

Beauty property with great amenities....

  • 4 of 5

On the positive side, the property was beautiful, and the outdoor facilities (pool, fire pit, kayaks) were very nice. On the negative side, my wife found the kitchen cookware sparse and there were a number of 'maintenance' items that should have been found and resolved prior to our arrival (see suggestions). The master suite was fantastic (and huge) but the remaining the bedrooms were on the smaller side. Overall, a very nice property, but, in this price range, we expected perfection.

Pristine Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This home became our home for the week we spent here during the Memorial Day week. The property is private with a long dock into the bay. We kayaked, snorkeled and fished all week long. The snorkeling is fun and there are tons of fish, lobsters and other wildlife to view. There are other great spots to snorkel and fish within a short drive. We saw shark, sting ray AND a manatee (that was a great treat!) right off the dock. Every detail is seen to at this property. The furnishings were new and well designed and there are views from the living areas that are stunning! And, of course, stunning sunsets every evening which you cam see from anywhwre on the dock and patio. There is a great outdoor kitchen and covered patio as well as yard games, hammocks and a wonderful pool! This is a part of Marathon that is quieter. We had a short drive to shop (15 mins ) for groceries and there are several small local shops that we went to for ice cream treats and souvenirs. There are some great local restaurants we tried, the Island Fish Co. (the sandwiches and wings are great and good local beer selection) and The Florida Keys Steak and Lobster House, pricier but fabulous food (you have to try the creme brule in a grilled pinapple - devine!) The guys went to Bud and Marys Marina in Islamarada one day for a deep sea fishing trip and brought back Mahi and Tile for dinner! All that being siad, we loved it here! It was our first time to the keys and this was the perfect place for our family to reconnect, relax and recharge together!

Fantastic Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our group included 8 people, 2 couples and our adult children. We fell in love with this Grassy Key house! Whether we ventured out with our rental boat to snorkel and fish or spend the day kayaking or by the pool, this place is delightful. The dock gave us hours of enjoyment. We saw a couple of bull sharks (small), rays, lobsters, fish of course and even a turtle one day. We could hear the sea lions or seals and 'Flipper' from down around the corner at the Dolphin Research Center. The bagpiper from the RV park signaled happy hour every day. The house is beautifully decorated, the landscaping and garden lighting lovely. A little piece of paradise! We hope to be back one day.

Beautiful home and unbelievable location.

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home for 2 families of 4. We use VRBO frequently and this home was by far the cleanest and most organized home. You don't need to bring anything other than your clothes and flip flops! So many places to sit and relax. We loved walking out on the dock and looking for sea life during the day. The pool and outdoor kitchen were wonderful as well. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We can't wait to come back!
