Marathon Condo Rental Photos and Description

2BR Oceanfront Vacation Rental Marathon , Florida USA

Seaglass-Paradise on the Gulf is located in the heart of the the beautiful Florida Keys. The Keys are a series of 40 islands connected by 40 bridges , off the southern most tip of Florida. The chain of islands extends 120 miles into the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The area is famous for its Caribbean weather and world-class fishing and diving.

This luxurious two-bedroom/2.5-bath townhome is located 20 feet from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. There is access to wrap-around walk-out terraces from the living room and Master bedroom from which you'll have spectacular views of sea life, ocean birds, and a parade of pleasure/fishing boats going to and from the big water. The full view of the sunrise and the sky color at sunset -- and the sound of the waves as you close your eyes at night, will stay with you long after your vacation ends.

This unit is beautifully appointed and immaculately maintained. Below the unit is a covered parking area for your car and boat trailer.

And there's boat dockage just 100 feet from the front door. The swimming pool is 30 feet from your balcony.

There's a king-size bed in the master bedroom, two queen-size beds in the second bedroom, and a sofa sleeper in the living room.

About Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION

We live in Wisconsin, and like so many in our part of the world we sought out warmth and sunshine during the winter months. After many visits to many warm weather venues we discovered Paradise in the Florida Keys. Our first visit was in 1978 and we have come back every year since.

Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION purchased this condo in 2003

Why Bob Royko - CALL FOR OWNER CONFIRMATION chose Marathon

We chose Seaglass in Gulfpointe 2 because it has everything we love about the Keys. It is secluded and quiet but still walking distance to our favorite beach and restaurants. Our home is spacious and the views are fantastic from just about every room.

What makes this condo unique

Seaglass is right on the water and from our balcony you will see ocean birds and aquatic life that will keep you entertained. Our location is convenient to great attractions to the West in Key West and to the East with all of the Islands in the Islamorada chain. As our guest you will have access to a private beach in Key Colony (Inch Beach) which can be reached on foot or via a 2 minute car drive.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo! It was like a little slice of heaven after the cold winter of Michigan. We were looking for a spot to just sit back and relax and we found it in your spacious and welcoming condo on the Gulf. The list of sights to see and restaurants to try was very much appreciated. We visited Key West and took a wonderful walk around Crane Pointe and then just spent lazy days at Sombrero beach and the beautiful pool. We were so excited to see a manatee, small shark, and a couple of stingrays not to mention several iguanas just looking out from the balcony! Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home. We are looking forward to coming back soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Eileen Thanks so much for the kind words. That means a lot to me. Because I have such a strong feeling for the beautiful Keys, it really is gratifying to see our guests enjoy all of the same features of the Keys that we love so much. Each time you visit you will discover something new and enjoyable to do or see. I truly hope we see you again next year. You were here at a time that is in great demand so if you want that same next year, it is still open but let me know as soon as you can and I will pencil you in. All the best Bob Royko

Chilling Out in Comfort with a View of the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 from NYC and were in need of some warmth and an escape from a long, cold winter. The Keys and Seaglass gave us what we needed!

The Condo - It is very clean, has everything we needed and very comfortably fit the four of us (Mom, Dad, 8 y.o. and 12 y.o.). We cooked almost every day - kitchen was great for that and had all the tools we needed. Wifi is fast. There are lots of signs/notes around to help you find things and remind you of house rules. The beds are very comfy. The kitchen/living area is large and has great views of the Gulf. The master bath upstairs even has a view of the Gulf. Our favorite aspect of the house were the incredible wrap-around views of the Gulf from the master bedroom.

The Grounds - Gulfpointe II has 5 bulidings which are fairly close together and jut out into the Gulf such that there are great views in every direction. We enjoyed walking along the water's edge (rocky, no sand/beach), going out on the dock, playing soccer on a grassy area and swimming in the never-crowded pool. Very quiet.

The Keys - Our favorite activity was a tour of the Turtle Hospital. Our kids want to go back and volunteer there. We also liked the Dolphin Research Center and walking trails at the Crane Nature Center. All of those are 10 minutes away or less. We enjoyed a sunset cruise. We were somewhat disappointed with Bahia Honda State Park - beach was pretty small and very crowded. Key West was an enjoyable day trip tho we found the downtown a little too loud/boisterous (even midday). We found the 3-4 Marathon restaurants we tried to be pretty mediocre, except for a simple Cuban Cafe near the Turtle Hospital. Cheap, and very tasty Cuban food/coffee!

Inch Beach - The condo comes with access to Inch Beach, which is a small beach on the ocean about 5 minutes from the condo. We LOVED this spot. There is a big grassy field, covered palapas for shade/dining (with grill), and a small sand beach on the ocean, perhaps 30 yards across. We went about 4-5 times at different hours - usually there was one other group there so not crowded. Beach access seemed tight/limited in the Keys so this was a real treasure.

Logistics - Bob/Mickey were very responsive and helpful/friendly all along the way. There were a few minor administrative snafus, but there were quickly dealt with in fine fashion. We left a few swimsuits behind and Mickey sent them to us which we appreciated. Thanks!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED WOMAN OR MAN!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Seaglass & we have already booked for a third next year! Four of us drive down from Wisconsin to meet up with two other couples mainly so the guys can fish & woman can do whatever they want. This condo is perfect for any length of stay. Washer/dryer, dish washer, plenty of pots, pans & dishes to use. We had gone for two weeks in the past years but have booked for three weeks next year. Clean, nice furnishings, GREAT LOCATION and what really was nice is everyone around this secluded area was so nice even the couple living next door. She even brought us over some homemade HOT corn bread. So much to do and Bob had given lists of great restaurants & "hot spots". Nothing is as good as taking your fresh fish to one of the local restaurants to cook up! Very accommodating. Spent so much time on the patio enjoying the great view right on the water. Pool was near & even on windy days it was nice to sit around because it is pretty sheltered. Grounds were very well kept up. Bob you & your wife have sure made this a nice place to stay & get away from the harsh Wisconsin winter. THANK YOU

Nice place + Nice location

  • 5 of 5

It is a really nice condo/townhouse with balcony facing gulf. It is part of a 4 unit building so there is no "crowded" feeling and neighbors seem nice and quiet. Parking is designated and under the building, at ground level. Modern place with living/kitchen on the first level and bedrooms on the 2nd. Large windows/sliding door make it really nice view to the gulf and palm trees outside. The grounds outside are nicely kept and clean. Swimming pool is right outside which is really nice in the winter months when gulf/ocean is on the cooler side. Couple miles from the 7 mile bridge and plenty of good restaurants close by ... Would not mind coming back.

Very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Gulfpointe II for our first time and it wont be our last It was very clean and comfortable. The view was extraordinary and beautiful. We loved sitting on the patio in the morning and evening just to enjoy the view. I loved sitting by the pool, mostly by myself and reading. Very relaxing and several eating establishments close by. We are looking forward to another stay next year. Thank you Bob.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews are true! Great location, clean, quiet, everything that it is promised to be. The water in the gulf is so clear we saw a shark and manta ray right from the deck! The pool is lovely and we had it to ourselves most of the time. The access to Inch beach is a definite perk as it has no seagrass accumulation, something all the public beaches have quite a lot of. We really enjoyed our stay, thanks Bob!
