'HAPPINESS IS!' at Gulfpointe II! We welcome you to enjoy our spacious upscale condo in a small (20 unit) complex located on the Gulf in Marathon, 'The Heart of the Keys.' The mid-keys location, north of the famous seven mile bridge, puts you in easy reach of all Keys attractions . You can swim from the dock, lounge by the heated pool, and enjoy water views from every room in the condo and from the wrap around decks on both the main and upper levels. If you prefer a more active vacation, you can do it all: boat in the gulf or the ocean, fish, snorkel or scuba dive. Your location near Vaca Cut gives you quick access to both the gulf and the ocean. If you like a soft sandy beach, Sombrero Beach is about 10 minutes away. You can walk to local seafood markets and enjoy fresh caught dolphin and shrimp to cook at the condo or walk or drive to a myriad of nearby restaurants. ASK ABOUT OUR SUPER SAVER SUMMER SPECIAL, ideal for retirees. Minimum rental 7days. NO WEEKLY RENTALS DURING LOBSTER MINI-SEASON OR THE FIRST WEEK OF LOBSTER SEASON unless part of a 29 day rental.

Gulfoint is directly off US Rt. l, so there's convenient access to everything--yet the peninsula surrounds you with beautiful water views and makes you feel you are on your own private island! There are large resorts in Marathon where your unit may be a long walk to the pool or the water. Here your building is less than 48 feet to the water and 48 feet to the pool. If you want a sandy beach there are three close by: Key Colony Beach and Cocoplum Beach, both about 1 mile away and Sombrero beach, about 3 miles away.
If you want to get away, the Keys still have the charm. You are away from the super highways, tall buildings, and everything that goes with the work-a-day world. If you are looking for Kokomo, this is close as you'll get stateside! Yet you still have nearby restaurants, markets and the reassurance of a large local hospital. Gulfpointe is a great place for families or couples of any age. The condo has room enough for 2 couples to comfortably share it for the entire winter season, or for one couple to invite occasional guests or grandkids to visit. Call Us!
You are only minutes from Key Colony Beach Golf Course. No tee times required on this challenging nine-hole Par3 public golf course. Clubs and pull carts are available. Near MM 53.5, turn at the light onto Key Colony Beach, then first right, then right on 8th street. Enjoy your day away from the water! Open 7:30 am to dusk.
We raised our family in central CT and spent many school vacations in the Keys. Bob took up scuba diving in the 1960's and Janet took up the sport in the 70's. Their children learned diving basics at their High School pool and did their open water dives in the Keys. We spent many happy family days on the water in Marathon and now are happy to be able to host our grandchildren as they too learn to swim and sorkel and dive in the Keys. Marathon is our home away from home. We retired and now live on a lake in New Hampshire. We are blessed to be on the water at home and at play.
For 20+ years, we owned a time share in Marathon. When it was to be torn down, we knew we needed a place of our own in this area that we had come to love so much. After a lot of looking, we found Gulfpointe II Now, 10 years later, we are happy with the choiced we made and would not want to be elsewhere. We are less than 1/2mile from where we had been before. It is small, private, covnenient, safe, low traffic, yet convenient to everyplace we wanted to go.
We have travelled all over Florida looking at various areas to decide on where we wanted to buy. We checked out the East Coast, the West coast, even the Panhandle. But after all the looking,. we kept coming back to the Keys and to Marathon in particular. Vacation to us meant no 4 lane lhighways, no tall buildings, no dress code for dinner. So this was our perfect place. The ocean, the Gulf, water, water, water. It was what we wanted. We love being at Gulfpointe and hope you will too!
