Marathon House Rental Photos and Description

Ocean Front, 4BR, 2 Master Bedrooms, 3.5 Bath, Sleeps 10, Gated Private Quiet

Gated, Ocean Front, 4BR, 2 Master Suites, Sleeps 8, Private

This two-story, ocean-front Florida Keys home is the ideal locale for busy executives, families, retirees and vacationers alike. Developers thoughtfully considered every last detail when designing and constructing this architectural masterpiece – from its breathtaking, scenic ocean views to its high-definition flat-panel televisions in the living room and all four bedrooms.

This sunrise beach house is elegantly decorated with classic charcoal and crème tones. Interior space is enhanced by rich custom wall mosaics, while the home’s exterior is graced with professional landscaping, lounge chairs, a hammock and two, four foot pool-side hand-carved granite statues. Designer furnishings extend into the two master bedrooms, where visitors are greeted by plush, luxurious king-sized beds and attached bathroom with Jacuzzis. Two additional bedrooms house lavish twin beds, one with walk-out French doors and year-round ocean views.

SPECTACULAR!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the Sunrise Getaway House was absolutely wonderful! We were three couples who shared this home and we had a great time! Beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds, a breathtaking view, and an awesome pool and spa. Thank you to Terry and Carolyn for sharing their vacation home. And special thanks to Connie for taking good care of us. Can't wait for next year!

Lovely home, stunning views. Very Clean.

  • 5 of 5

I was not disappointed at all with this house! Everything on my wish list. We have stayed at other homes in the Keys, and this is the first time we didn't even have to think about it, we booked here for next year. Carolyn is just wonderful to deal with. She really makes sure you enjoys your stay. Can't wait to go back!

Beautiful Oceanfront Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is by far the most wonderful place my family and I have had the privilege to vacation at. The pictures and description of the home and view are not at all exaggerated. We were all so impressed that we have already booked a week for next year. Plenty of fun things to do in the area if you can force yourself to leave this paradise. Having dinner at the Sunset Grille at sunset is a must. It is oceanfront with a great view of the famous 7 mile bridge. Carolyn the owner is so nice and helpful and Connie takes care of things locally and was a pleasure to meet. Everything was very clean and well maintained Highly Recommended!

The prettiest view in the keys !

  • 5 of 5

Our family was delighted with my choice for a Keys getaway. Not only perfectly clean, the beds were so comfortable. The pool overlooking the Atlantic is just so beautiful! Thank You for letting us stay!

ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property, location, and home owner is phenomenal. I couldn't think of a negative thing, even if I tried. Lets break it all down...

The Property/Home

You can tell this home was built with a lot of attention to detail. It sits on two lots overlooking your own private dock with panoramic ocean views. The lot itself has a hammock, pool, Jacuzzi, personal car port, and your own gated entrance. Not only did we feel secure in our own private area, but loved the spacious interior and exterior.

Location

On vacation, it truly is all about location, location, location. What a better way to relax than under a coconut tree on your own little slice of paradise. This home is nestled in the middle of Marathon, FL-Only a short drive down to Key West to grab a chocolate covered Key Lime Pie on a stick, or head up North to the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park for some snorkeling. (Or maybe Miami to grasp a scene of the nightlife.) We were overwhelmed of opportunities for adventure in every which direction, or the adventure awaiting outside our front door.

The Homeowner

I don't think I've met such a genuinely nice individual. Homeowner Carolyn truly made the experience for our family. You could practically see her smile over the phone, as she was just as excited as we were for this vacation. It was like having our own personal concierge the entire trip, making sure everything was up to expectation.

Overall

My family came to this house and we were amazed by the incredible oceanfront view! We were able to sit outside and just relax. Other than the view of the ocean, we were pleased to find many great hangout places nearby, in addition to everything this home has to offer. This house had great furnishings and we will surely come back again.

Thank you Carolyn for such an amazing trip. We can't wait to be back!

Map

Car: necessary

The temperate Florida Keys provide an atmosphere all their own, with idyllic tropical temperatures, clear, shallow waters and white sandy beaches. Step onto its shores and wrap yourself in its serenity. Steeped in tradition and history, The Keys have provided a rejuvenating retreat for the likes of Ernest Hemingway, who penned his infamous novel A Farewell to Arms while living on the islands, and Tennessee Williams, who purchased a home on its shores.

Marathon, coined the Heart of the Florida Keys, is located at the center of the island chain and connected to the southern islands by the famous Seven Mile Bridge, the longest fragmented bridge in the world built in 1985 adjacent to its original counterpart. The bridge, offering a scenic view of the Atlantic ocean’s sparkling waters, has been featured in several movies including True Lies and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Anglers are drawn to its “longest fishing pier in the world”, where they can catch dolphin fish, yellow tail and barracuda.

Notes:
With incredibly mild seasons, the Keys rise and fall just 12 to 20 degrees year-round. Residents and visitors enjoy average 70 degrees in January and 80 to 90-degree summer months. Warm tropical showers and thunderstorms roll through the shores between May and October, creating an extraordinarily moody, romantic and dramatic ambiance. The Key’s cobalt-colored waters and coral reefs are a haven for scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking and boating. Sport fishermen flock to its waters, with 10 percent of the world’s salt fish records set just off the shores. Visit the Adelaide Baker historic shipwreck, Telta Shoals and the famous Thunderbolt wreck dive site. Swim with dolphins or indulge in local Eco Tours. The opportunities are limitless. Arts abound at the nearby Tennessee Williams Theater, while The Key West Literary Seminar draws hundreds of new and well-known creative writers each January.
