WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT THE VACATION RENTAL?

This vacation rental offers the best of both worlds: A comfortable shore home on the mainland in Marathon and a private island exclusively yours minutes away in the Gulf of Mexico. Your family or group will be the only people with access to Dolphin Jump Key for day time activities. Spend your days swimming, snorkeling, fishing, Kayaking, cooking out and return to your comfortable home at dusk to enjoy evening activities in the family friendly town of Marathon.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN WE HAVE STAY AT THE HOME ON SHORE?

Our rental license allows up to 6 people to stay at the home on shore. We have a queen bed in the master bedroom and a two doubles in the second. We also have a sofa in the living room.

HOW DO WE GET TO AND FROM THE ISLAND?

We provide you a boat to get to and from the island, which is only a couple minutes from shore. You can also use the boat to go fishing, go out to eat, or sightseeing during day light hours on the gulf side.

IS THERE ELECTRICITY AND RUNNING WATER ON THE ISLAND?

This is a rustic private island. There is no power or running water. There is a composting toilet, which is similar to an outhouse, but without the smell. The facilities are great for camping, as many people choose to do on the island overnight.

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING THIS MAINLAND HOME WITH ACCESS TO PRIVATE ISLAND?

The 6th Ave home with exclusive access to Dolphin Jump Key rents from Saturday to Saturday. The boat is for use during day light hours only.

WHAT IS ALL INCLUDED WITH THIS RENTAL?

Home on 6th Ave: Private driveway, ample parking, gas grill, lounge chairs and table in the back yard, washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, WIFI, and Cable TV. A 17’ 2012 Triumph boat with 2013 4-stroke motor.

Dolphin Jump Key: boat dock, kayaks, picnic table, gas grill, fire pit.

WHAT SURPRISES MIGHT WE HAVE?

The crystal clear waters around the island are visited by a variety of wildlife including dolphins, manatees, sting ray, lobster, crab, octopus, barracuda, parrot and angel fish, to name a few. Some of which are residents of the underside of the island. Snorkeling would be the best way to visit them. We also have the above water visitors and residents which would include roosting pelicans, great herons as well as some very friendly, vegetarian Iguana’s.

FUN IN THE KEYS

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my teen daughters, who each brought a friend, took our first trip to the Keys and LOVED IT. It was a very fun and relaxing experience! First, we were impressed with the knowledge, assistance and friendliness of Rick, Property Manager, who met us upon our arrival. He helped us get acquainted with the area and get our luggage in. The home was roomy, clean and bright - very tropical! Exactly what we expected. Furniture was comfortable and clean, we were pleased that we had internet service. While we didn't watch much TV, cable was available. Kitchen had a big table for dining and playing games. The bathroom/shower served our needs and was clean. Plenty of towels were availabloe, and the washer and dryer were a nice touch.

We spent more time outside than in - the yard was great for grilling and sunning. Rick also showed us how to operate the boat and showed us how to get to our island! We spent many exciting days at our "private island" The cottage provided relief from the sun when we needed it. The swimming and snokeling were AWESOME - saw so many fish and creatures. Water was clear and warm! The boat was perfect for commuting to the island and enjoying the underwater show along the way. We saw fish - manatee - lobsters - crabs - dolphins - WOW! The location is perfect for visiting Key West or any of the Keys towards the mainland. The local sights and eateries were fantastic, lots of fresh fish and seafood! We are going back - it was a good price and they were very easy to work with. All questions were answered and information was readily available. We had a great time!

We had a wonderful time at the two 4 bedroom houses in Marathon---the setting was beautiful, the houses were spacious and perfect for our family reunion, and the weather was unbelievably good. Everyone in our family (age range 6 months to 78 years) enjoyed our stay; the houses were great, and there were plenty of nearby attractions to keep everyone happy and occupied. We definitely recommend the houses to others! It was an unforgettable, wonderful way to close out the old year and bring in the new.

AWESOME VACATION 2014

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome vacation we had on Dolphin Jump Key, also known as Little Russell Key. The main house was perfect for our family of 5. We basically were there just in the evening as we spent all day at the private island, snorkeling, fishing and kayaking. Everything was provided for us, a boat to get us to the island, fishing poles, kayaks, life jackets, snorkeling equipment and even a cooler to use. We also spent lunches with the many iguanas on the island. We were lucky to have seen manatees one day swim right by the island as we snorkeled and the crystal clear waters were perfect for fishing and kayaking. I would recommend this rental to anyone who likes a true relaxing Florida vacation.

WHAT AN AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
If your idea of a vacation is being pampered at the Hilton, then this may not be the vacation for you. If your idea of a vacation is being able to explore the local waters on your own and truly explore outside the confines of tour guides, this vacation is top notch. The island and the rental house in Marathon was everything it was advertised to be and more. Clean and well maintained. My daughters are 11 and 8 years old and have both been on Disney Cruises. They informed me that staying on the Dolphin Jump Key was the best vacation they have ever been on. We snorkeled around the island, caught lobster, swam with a sea turtle and saw countless other sea life. When the family had enough of roughing it “Robinson Crusoe” style on the island, we were able to go back to Marathon in a matter of moments for more touristy type entertainment. Jim, the local care taker, went out of his way to make sure that our needs were taken care of. We will definitely be booking another trip for next year.

DOLPHIN JUMP KEY - HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
The shore home is adorable, the pictures don't do it justice. Very comfortable home with all the conveniences of home. But the real jem about this rental is heading to your own private island every morning for a whole week. The boat included in the rental was new and easy to drive. Sometimes we did absolutely nothing which was great, but we also swam, snorkeled, kayaked, fished (not me), and grilled out. The wildlife on the island and all around was the experience of a lifetime! How great it was to be literally off the grid on vacation. Wish I was there right now!

A BIT OF PARADISE

  • 4 of 5
My wife and another couple spent a week at your home in Marathon key. the home was very well maintained and the island getaway was a pleasant surprise. weather was in the mid 80's and sunny all week. The home is in a quiet area and yet a short drive to Key West. We had some great sea food in the local restaurants and we tried luck at Tarpon fishing. No Tarpon but hooked a Spinner Shark.
