THE GULF-FRONT REFUGE ON GRASSY KEY

Grassy Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy your own private retreat! Fabulous Home on Morton Street.

This three-bedroom, two-bath, private home is tucked away on the open water with outstanding views of the Gulf of Mexico. Beautifully furnished and appointed, this home provides the background for a vacation to remember for years to come!

The beach-style back yard has a beautiful swimming pool with a stepped shallow water entry that leads to the deep end. On one side, elevated on a platform, is a spa with the overflow cascading into the pool and on the other side is a waterfall. Built in seating rims the edges under the waterfalls!

The pier dock offers dockage for your boat as well as a great spot to sit out over the water and enjoy the sunset colors. You will have fun fishing off the dock or jump in, the shoreline offers a variety of tropical and local fish to watch while you snorkel.

The main level of the home offers two bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed the other with two twins, and an expansive living, kitchen and dining area all overlooking the gulf. A great covered porch off the living area is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the views or dine outdoors. The master suite is on the top level with a king-size bed, a private bath, and open porch.

For those who can't leave their business home, Broadband (Comcast) internet service, WiFi, is available at this house.

Well appointed with linens, towels (bath and pool), a very well-equipped kitchen, central air, washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave oven, gas grill. TVs in the living area and downstairs bedroom, stereo.

If swimming, fishing, and snorkeling at your own location is not enough Marathon offers a Dolphin Research Center which is open to the public for tours, a dedicated bike trail along US 1 which will take you from Grassy Key to the Seven Mile Bridge (the old bridge is a great spot to exercise and watch the fish below from a 'birds eye view'). The historic museum is a great spot to spend an afternoon and offers nature trails through a Keys hardwood hammock. Sombrero Beach, oceanside in Marathon, is another popular spot for a change of pace and Bahia Honda State Park, 20 minutes south of Marathon, offers more great 'Keys' beaches. Lots of shops, restaurants, and services are available throughout Marathon, even though you may feel like you are on a private retreat away from the world, grocery stores, drugs stores, bait and tackle shops and just about everything you could need on vacation is just minutes away. If you do not have your own boat there are many boat rental companies in the area that will let you bring a boat to your dock during your stay!

May consider a allowing a pet. Please contact us with information on the pet to see if it is allowed (would add a pet fee to cost).

It’s hard to believe that we spent our third week in 2 ½ years here. It’s very private, has everything without going anywhere. Over the past three years while kayaking near the dock we saw dolphins, sting rays, and manatees. Watching the sunset at the dock or from the second floor only makes us want to return. We’d recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet yet close to Marathon.

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a week at this lovely home to celebrate the end of our daughters' first year of college. What a relaxing week! Lot's of great family time. The porches and views are spectacular, the pool is gorgeous and my husband enjoyed fishing right from the dock. Great location for a quick day trip to Key West too. Go, get away, enjoy!

Do I have to Leave?

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here last year on a last minute trip and didn't want to leave. The pool area was amazing and we were able to catch lots of fish right off the dock! Sitting on the balcony and the dock watching the sun go down was a great way to end each day. Marathon was a great location for us as we were right in the middle of the Keys and got to experience Key West, Key Largo and Isle Morada, all within an hours drive. There was so much for the kids to do from the Dolphin Research Center, Theatre of the Sea, and the Sea Turtle Hospital. We also enjoyed using the kayak that is at the home right off the dock. We'll be back!

Awesome Time

We vacationed at this property in 2009. The house is wonderful as well as the yard. Our family enjoyed the location, the privacy and the chance to live as a local. I would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Located in the Middle Keys area on Grassy Key which is the north end of Marathon. Morton Street runs along the open Gulf of Mexico and at the west end is very private with a feeling of seclusion. Just minutes from Marathon proper for shops and services. Key West is 50 miles away to the south and the Upper Keys are about the same north of Marathon, a great central location for sightseeing excursions.
