Great location right on the ocean side of Marathon Key at the end of a dead end street so no traffic to worry about. Nice lagoon allows you to launch the provided kayaks from a large dock before heading out into the shallow waters of the Atlantic. Nice shaded area right on the water, perfect for relaxing or fishing, including snoozing on the provided hammock! Gentle cooling ocean breezes. Awesome sunrises. Very large kitchen & plenty of dining space. Pool is small but adequate enough for fun. Fishing equipment provided. Fish cleaning station right on the dock area. Large sandy area for kids to play on. Firepit ovelooking the ocean for evening s'mores! Three bedrooms in the main house, one with multiple bunks for kids. One bedroom underneath the main house. A separate guest house houses a few more & has its own small kitchen & dining area along with a screened porch. Laundry facilities provided. Large cabana shower/bath next to the laundry. Main house has a large screened porch. House also has a "crows nest" up top the offers nice views (max capacity is 4 adults). Gave the property four stars because there were some cosmetic issues & daytime noise from the nearby airport (helicopters & small planes apparently taking people out on aerial tours) but nothing detracted from our good time while staying there. Very quiet at night. And awesome aerial shows by the resident ospreys to dazzle your eyes!!
We stayed at the villa for one week in october. The place was just as advertised and we had a great time. We made us of the dock and brought in our small boat. Highly recommended, we will be staying again.
We stayed at this property with three families - mostly adults and small children. The property was spacious and well stocked. We fit a 22' and 24' boat in the boat basin with no problems. The beach area at the back of the house was perfect for the little ones to run around and play. Both the main house and guest cottage were beautifully appointed. The location of the prperty is perfect for a short run to the reef for snorkleing or running to the bridge for fishing. I would definitely stay at this property again and highly recommend it to other that want a large, private house in Marathon.

Our family really enjoyed our vacation in Marathon Key. The home had plenty of spaces so that we could enjoy meals on the patio by the pool or the screened porch, big table for games, talking and laughing and the ample space allowed for time together and alone as well. The view from the crows nest is unbelievable for sunrises, sunsets or storms. Well located for access to beaches, parks, Key West or Key Largo, diving, fishing or the Turtle Hospital.
