QUIET OPEN WATER HIDEAWAY OVERLOOKING NATURE PRESERVE

Marathon Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Relax in this peaceful, open-water, bird and wildlife sanctuary with private views of the State Park. From your patio look-out, only 9 feet from water's edge, you can watch fish swim and birds fly, or if you prefer, you may simply sit and enjoy the ebb and flow of the tide. In these environmentally friendly surroundings, you can observe, in a way you never have, marine life and native birds in unobstructed waters. Just off the property you can find nature trails leading to quiet beaches. The patio offers views of a back yard aquarium and the spectacular beauty of the Florida Keys. Launch our canoe or kayaks into this ecological paradise and paddle your way along easy-to-follow, marked mangrove trails. All wildlife and scenic photos were taken off back patio.

You will be very comfortable is these extremely clean and well-appointed surroundings. The property has brand new everything: New furnishing, linens and towels, iPad 2, wireless internet access, two flat screen TV's with all premium movie channels and NFL Sunday Ticket, Saltillo tile floors, private patio look-out, new bathroom, new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.

*Includes canoe, kayaks and binoculars

We are minutes from Marathon and only 1-1/2 hours from the Miami International Airport, and an hour's drive to Key West, which makes this a centrally located vacation destination.

You will have the opportunity to relax in an open water nature preserve, offering private views of the State Park. From your sea wall, watch the annual migration of east coast sea birds. From the patio watch spectacular sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean. Later in the day walk across the street and watch a breath-taking sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Or just hang out in the hammock and immerse yourself in the tranquility of this ecological paradise. Take morning or afternoon walks through the nature trails in the State Park and comb the beaches in undisturbed tranquility. Open your windows and enjoy the cooling ocean breeze. In the picnic area there is a tiki hut, barbecue and hammock.

Enjoyed our visit here immensely. Unit was clean and thoughtfully appointed, The bed was even comfortable! Having the kayaks to use was a real bonus. A very pleasant and peaceful place. We saw lots of cool wildlife, but the best was after dark in the water. Bioluminescent critters of some sort were everywhere! Flashing on and off, some leaving pretty little swirl patterns. Endlessly entertaining. I would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks so much! Jo McMillan

My wife and I enjoyed our week here immensely. The house was set at the end of a cul-de-sac on the edge of a gorgeous marine park. It was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities needed for a comfortable and carefree vacation.
If you love kayaking, as we do, this is the perfect spot. In the evening, we loved the peace ad tranquillity as the sun set over the mangove lake as the egrets and pelicans fed. Another highlight was observing the fish, crabs and lobsters from the dock. This is a nature lover's paradise!

This property is a gem. The unit itself is quite luxurious, air conditioning, wireless internet, granite kitchen, etc, but the location is like being in a secluded nature preserve. We loved it. A great base for day trips to Miami or Key West, or just relaxing and taking in the wild birds and aquatic animals. Jerry could not have been nicer....very helpful, informative, and enthusiastic about the setting without being intrusive. He met us the first day and then we were on our own. This unit is I believe the most private of the property...you have almost the whole top floor and a spectacular view of the water, plants, and wildlife. The rooms are really large and everything is spotless. Thanks so much!
