Gated, Ocean Front, 4BR, 2 Master Suites, Sleeps 10, Private

This two-story, ocean-front Florida Keys home is the ideal locale for busy executives, families, retirees and vacationers alike. Developers thoughtfully considered every last detail when designing and constructing this architectural masterpiece – from its breathtaking, scenic ocean views to its high-definition flat-panel televisions in the living room and all four bedrooms.

This sunrise beach house is elegantly decorated with classic charcoal and crème tones. Interior space is enhanced by rich custom wall mosaics, while the home’s exterior is graced with professional landscaping, lounge chairs, a hammock and two, four foot pool-side hand-carved granite statues. Designer furnishings extend into the two master bedrooms, where visitors are greeted by plush, luxurious king-sized beds and attached bathroom with Jacuzzis. Two additional bedrooms house lavish twin beds, one with walk-out French doors and year-round ocean views.

With incredibly mild seasons, the Keys rise and fall just 12 to 20 degrees year-round. Residents and visitors enjoy average 70 degrees in January and 80 to 90-degree summer months. Warm tropical showers and thunderstorms roll through the shores between May and October, creating an extraordinarily moody, romantic and dramatic ambiance. The Key’s cobalt-colored waters and coral reefs are a haven for scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking and boating. Sport fishermen flock to its waters, with 10 percent of the world’s salt fish records set just off the shores. Visit the Adelaide Baker historic shipwreck, Telta Shoals and the famous Thunderbolt wreck dive site. Swim with dolphins or indulge in local Eco Tours. The opportunities are limitless. Arts abound at the nearby Tennessee Williams Theater, while The Key West Literary Seminar draws hundreds of new and well-known creative writers each January.

There is truly no way to put into words just how beautiful this home is! My family and I arrived and instantly realized the photos on the website do not do this property justice.We had our boat and found it so incredibly easy to dock it in the front, making every day so convenient to go out fishing, snorkeling, etc. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook up the fish you catch as well as my thirteen year old's baking treats every single day! This home is IMMACULATE and had more than enough space for all 7 of us, including three kids, to space out puzzles, games every night, etc. One of our favorite memories will be the iguanas which were hanging on the dock next door and visited us regularly. I have actually framed them in my home they are so beautiful!! The location of this gorgeous home is perfect to make a quick trip down to Key West, grocery shopping, dining out, (but you will never want to, TRUST ME!), so it makes everything very easy. We literally lived in the boat and pool and had to draw straws as to who was leaving to go to the grocery store! We are already checking our schedule to figure out when we can book this home again for next Summer when the kids get out of school. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful home with ocean front property.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home for my husband's 50th birthday. There were 10 adults and the house fit us all as it is very spacious. It is a beautiful home with a beautiful pool area as well as a beautiful view of the ocean. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking to have a great time with family or friends. Everyone in town was very friendly and helpful. Carolyn is a very easy to work with and very accommodating. I can't wait to go back soon!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this place a justice. I would give this home 10 out of 5 stars if possible! The location is perfect, and we loved waking up to the sunrise over the ocean every morning. The property was spotless and the landscaping is the best I've seen out of all of the vacation rentals I've looked at. They maintain the yard perfectly. The owner made sure our arrival went smoothly and proceeded to check-in throughout the week to make sure everything was okay. Carolyn really takes pride in the Sunrise Getaway House and will do anything to make sure your stay is perfect. There are many great restaurants nearby, including a grocery store if you want to cook-in. We loved the Marathon Lady which is a fishing charter boat 5 minutes away from the house. This is the best vacation I've ever been on with my family. We have so many memories to look back on and cherish, I hope we will return to the Sunrise Getaway House.

Beautiful, million $$ views, gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family Easter vacation week in April of 2015. My review is late and the date of arrival would not go back that far. House is perfect, we had a total of 9 family members. Lots of room, pool and hot tub awesome. Cannot say enough about this rental. Carolyn is awesome and addresses any concerns immediately. We would book this house again in a heartbeat. We have also referred this properties to our friends that also love & visit Marathon. A gem in the middle Keys!!

Tranquil, peaceful, beautiful home and location.

  • 5 of 5

Home tastefully decorated. Yard, garden and pool well maintaine! The home is equipped with all of the conveniences of being at home. Conveniently located to shopping and restaurants, yet secluded enough to feel like you are alone on an island. Will definitely consider spending another vacation at this home!

Car: necessary

The temperate Florida Keys provide an atmosphere all their own, with idyllic tropical temperatures, clear, shallow waters and white sandy beaches. Step onto its shores and wrap yourself in its serenity. Steeped in tradition and history, The Keys have provided a rejuvenating retreat for the likes of Ernest Hemingway, who penned his infamous novel A Farewell to Arms while living on the islands, and Tennessee Williams, who purchased a home on its shores.

Marathon, coined the Heart of the Florida Keys, is located at the center of the island chain and connected to the southern islands by the famous Seven Mile Bridge, the longest fragmented bridge in the world built in 1985 adjacent to its original counterpart. The bridge, offering a scenic view of the Atlantic ocean’s sparkling waters, has been featured in several movies including True Lies and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Anglers are drawn to its “longest fishing pier in the world”, where they can catch dolphin fish, yellow tail and barracuda.
