House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Born and raised in Georgia I have always loved the climate in Florida. I was in awe when I first visited the Keys and drove across the old wooden 7Mile Bridge, I knew then I wanted a home in this tropical paradise. After spending several years looking, I fell in love with White Sands and her previous owners, Pat & JoAnne Ballenger! Thankfully I was able to acquire this home and now have my own slice of paradise to enjoy when I can get away from the horse farm.
Katreena purchased this House in 1998
Why Katreena chose Marathon
It's a perfect location on Grassy Key, private and removed from the noisy traffic of US Hwy #1. Close enough to Marathon for grocery shopping and enjoying the conveniences of fine dining. Less than an hour south is the tourism capital of the Keys - Key West is brimming with cruise ships and night life.
What makes this House unique
Your own private tropical gardens with unobscured sunset views from the end of the 300' long dock. Delight to the music of palm fronds singing in the breeze. Enjoy the Gulf views from the expansive wall of windows, the comfy deck chairs on the back porch, or our colorfully painted Adirondack beach chairs

We loved our stay at White Sands! The home and outdoor areas are beautiful and sparkling clean! The dock is very nice. The owner and property manager took great care of us! Will definitely be back!
Great spot for a relaxing vacation!
Thank YOU! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
House was exactly as stated. Very comfortable and one of the best equipped rentals we have ever stayed at. Side note....the driveway is very short. Only enough room for 2 cars side by side. No boat trailer. Our full size pickup used every bit of space.
A Beautiful place!!
It was like you were in paradise, we loved every minute of it. Planning on returning next year!!
This was a wonderful vacation for my wife and I. Kiddingly (unfortunately) I just told my wife I bought a pair of airline tickets and we are heading back to White Sands. She ‘s more than ready!
What can I say - it was more than pictures - simply THE BEST vacation location ever! Thank you soooooo much Katreena for some great memories. You can be very proud of White Sands. We’ll definitely be back!
Our stay at Whitesands was great! My husband and I along with our two sons, 18 and 16 had a wonderful week. This was our first trip to the keys. This vacation home turned out to be exactly what we needed for a fun and restful week. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and the home was very clean! The pool and dock were the highlight of our stay. We enjoyed nightly sunsets, fishing off the dock and fishing from the kayaks and swimming in the pool in the evening. We will definitely be back for another stay at whitesands!!
