MAGNIFICENT OPEN WATER ESTATE IN SOMBRERO BEACH { MARATHON }

Marathon Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms , 3 full Baths (Sleeps 12 +)

'Sunset Point', is a stately private home situated at the very end of a point overlooking a beautiful protected lagoon. Sombrero Country Club and golf course are directly across the water nestled behind a shoreline of lush mangroves, providing a natural landscape. The sunsets across the bay from the porch and pool area are spectacular.

Built in the temple style of architecture, the ground level single story structure is at once spacious and luxurious.Massive bronze front doors open into an impressive great room to include a dining area and sunken living room with gas fireplace. The vaulted ceiling is constructed of fine Honduran mahogany. Standing just inside the entrance, one can see through the opposing wall of glass to the huge indoor pool and the bay and shoreline beyond.

The dinning room will seat eight to ten guests comfortably, and the adjacent living room\ TV area will accommodate an additional eight to ten.

The large, completely renovated kitchen\ family room has granite counter tops and all stainless steel premium appliances. This kitchen is fully equipped with the best of knives, utensils, cookware,a commercial blender,and numerous other electronic conveniences. Doors open from the family room onto the outdoor porch as well as to the indoor pool . The porch is home to a gas barbecue and a stunning set of Lloyd Flanders all weather wicker furniture and cushions . The adjoining indoor pool is surrounded by a wide tile patio and seating area, and further enhanced by a border of tropical planting. The vaulted Honduran mahogany ceiling completes the picture.

The four bedrooms , bathrooms,and den are redecorated using only the finest of beds, mattresses, and bathroom fixtures. The master bath has a walk in shower and large tub with a walk- in [ handicap ] door. All bedrooms have new HD flat screen TVs.

More than an acre of landscaped grounds surround the residence; the lawns are a lush green and meticulously maintained. Over 800' of seawall encompass the property, and a high stucco wall and iron entrance gate keep the property secure and private. An ideal vacation retreat, 'Sunset Point ' offers ample space for a family reunion or special function.

The indoor pool is equipped with a basketball hoop, which provides great exercise and almost limitless entertainment. Sombrero Beach { within a mile from the house } is equipped with bathrooms, showers, as well as two volleyball courts. All these amenities, as well as the beach itself, are meticulously maintained by the town of Marathon, and are a great meeting place for guests of all ages.

'Sunset Point ' situated directly on a large lagoon, encompasses the entire end of a peninsula and possesses an unobstructed view of Sombrero Country Club and golf course..the completely renovated residence has arguably the finest full size

indoor pool in the Marathon area. This extremely private house is walled and gated and has over 800' of waterfront.' ,' A regulation shuffleboard court provides hours of entertainment for all ages.

Our family has vacationed in Marathon for many years and when the opportunity arose to purchase this house which we had always admired, we took it. The area is reminiscent of the islands with a relaxed, informal lifestyle. There is plenty to do in and around Marathon, the fishing is fantastic, and the kids love it.

' Sunset Point ' is a private little kingdom secluded behind it's walled entrance.The Sombrero Beach location is certainly the best in Marathon for a variety of reasons. First, the fantastic Sombrero Beach itself with its bathrooms, showers,and two volley ball courts, is only one mile away. Secondly,it is centrally located; only a short distance to supermarkets,restaurants, and shopping. Additionally, Sombrero Beach is one of the finest neighborhoods in Marathon.

Sunset Point is Marathon rental # PLR 2012 00131

UNPRECEDENTED ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Everyone involved agrees that it was the perfect choice. The house itself is located at the end of the street so auto and foot traffic was non-existent. The grounds were larger than expected, and beautifully maintained, and the house could not have been better furnished, laid out, or equipped.
The common areas were big enough to accommodate the entire household but the layout facilitated a more intimate feel when breaking off from the rest of the group. We could easily have 3 or 4 separate groups spread out and still feel as though we, practically, had the home to ourselves.
The indoor pool was amazing. It was big enough for an elaborate pool party and also offered the children a wonderful failsafe in the event of inclement weather. The doors to the pool would beep when opened (child safety), in furtherance of the well equipped and thought-out design of the home.
All in all, you could not go wrong with this home. If I had a complaint I would mention it, I don't.

LARGE RELAXING ESTATE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property with two couples and 5 children. There was plenty of room, the décor was wonderful, the indoor pool was amazing. Mark (the property caretaker) was always available if we had any issues. We have stayed at several places over the years in the lower Keys and decided to go with Marathon Key and we were definitely not disappointed.

Owner's Response: Karen, thanks for taking time to send in a nice review. We came back to our house in Maine the week that you arrived and woke up the next morning to a beautiful day and 33 degrees ! I guess we came home too soon. Glad you all had a nice week at Sunset Point, we will hope to see you back again, Jim & Tudor

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
I can be a picky and spoiled person and I read dozens of reviews before picking a vacation spot. If you are like me....read no further! This home was beautiful and exceeded expectations. The indoor pool is extremely clean and lovely. The only thing that could make it better would be to be on the beach, but that's not really so possible in the keys. A boat rental is an option and added to the fun.

WONDERFUL RELAXING VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for a week and loved every minute of it! The view of the lagoon is spectacular. The house is very well appointed and easily accommodated our family. Every room is decorated beautifully and makes you feel like you are at your own private resort. We had lots of fun riding bikes to the beach, kayaking through the mangroves, taking long walks around the area and fishing on Jim's boat. The indoor pool was a huge bonus for us as the weather was still a little bit chilly for swimming in the ocean. Jim and Tudor were wonderful to have around for any questions we had. I highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a worry free vacation in a beautiful setting!

FABULOUS PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this magnificent home during the week of our daughter's wedding. The home is lovely, well equipped, & perfectly located. It accommodated our 82-year old mother, five bridesmaids, and another couple comfortably.
We like entertain, and the kitchen had plenty of space for several people to be cooking and serving from without getting in each other's way.
The pool was great, and we enjoyed the lovely deck to watch the sunsets and star gaze during the evenings.
Jim and Tudor are great. We also enjoyed the boat rental -- although the weather did not cooperate for all days.
I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a well maintained, well located home in Marathon.

Owner's Response: Lauren, thanks for your kind review. You and your group were the perfect guests ! We are always a bit concerned when weddings are mentioned, but you treated the house as if it were your own, and if anything left it better than it was when you arrived. We hope to see you again in the future , and please bring your mother with you as she was a delightful lady , Tudor and Jim
