About the property

2BR (sleeps 6)+ Dockage Oceanfront Vacation Rental Marathon , Florida

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.

A beautiful private beach is available to Seaglass guests within a 2 minute drive or a 15 minute walk.

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 Central Florida Keys

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bob And Connie

Thanks you for sharing your large welcoming home with us. It is one

of the best equipped and nicest that we have stayed in thru VRBO. We

really appreciated that Bahia Honda State Park was so close too. We did not miss anything that we needed in your well equipped home.

Your directions and instructions were perfect and clear. We particularly liked the wooden table on the balcony where my husband and I enjoyed our evening wine in the warm breeze.

We will be back.

Thanks you

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

Very Nice Marathon Condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Seaglass with spectacular views and a great location. It was very nice having the pool so close and plenty of nice restaurants within a mile or so to enjoy. We definitely plan to return to Marathon.

It will not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

This rental did not disappoint. Plentiful supplies within the condo, like towels, and for your cooking needs. The condo is roomy. Appliances wiporked well. It had good internet and t.v.. service. There's a fabulous view off the condo balconies, with good parking, nice pool and friendly neighbors. Docking is great, and there are many choices nearby for fishing excursions, shopping and restaurants.

I Love This Place! Quiet, Beach, Pier, Dock, Fishing, Pool, Fresh Food - It has Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Sea Glass is the best option for a relaxing Florida oceanfront vacation and the price is unbeatable.

We love to fish and since we didn’t have our own boat to dock, we were able to fish right off of the pier and in addition to catching our dinner and lunch, we saw a sailfish and a manta ray jump up in the air near a little off short island. The wildlife viewing is spectacular and the folks who were using dock space were friendly. Another small group caught a shark right off of the pier and the battle was so lengthy and exciting, my daughter fell asleep on a pool chair from just watching.

We went fishing with your friend Jimmy and caught enough fish to eat for our entire stay. It was amazing!

We spent half of our water time at the beach, which was lovely, and it was also nice to just kick back by the pool where we could easily head up to the condo for a snack or to use the bathroom and not have to watch our daughter quite so closely. Everything is just so convenient and relaxing.

We walked to various wonderful restaurants, great food, fun music as well us premium coffee at Leigh Ann’s which for our family is a morning tradition that must remain unbroken :) Our favorite upscale restaurant is the Butterfly Cafe and for relaxing and looking over the water, Sparky’s. Thank you for the recommendations!

We spent a day in Key West and absolutely loved it. Louie’s Backyard was phenomenal as was Blue Heaven. It was so nice to visit, the Butterfly House, Southernmost Point and the beach - and we rented a peddle car too - and then escape the crowds and return to Sea Glass. I can’t imagine it is ever quiet in Key West!

The view from your balcony is really special. We had coffee out there every morning (aside from one when we walked Pigeon Key) and just watch the water, birds and fish while I daughter had her vacation dose of morning cartoons. It was so hard to leave. We will be back!! We’ve found our spot!

P.S. Thank you for providing a pet-free space. My husband is allergic to cats so it was nice not to worry about that.

We have rented Seaglass 3 times and it gets better each time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, just returned from the Florida Keys. This was our 20th year in the Keys and our 3rd time renting Seaglass from Bob.

The condo has been updated since the last time we rented. There is a new comfortable leather sofa and 2 new leather recliners in the living room, along with a new flat screen Samsung HDTV. There is a new refrigerator too. The new items are a sign that the owner (Bob) cares about his property.

We love the location of Seaglass, right in the middle of the Keys. It is just 53 miles south, to Key West, or about the same north, to Key Largo. There are loads of places to fish, hike, walk, boat, and sight see.

Renting the property is fast and easy. I highly recommend Seaglass.

Quiet, While Still Being Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

I am late in submitting this review even though I had the best intentions of completing it when I returned from our trip.

We booked this property and had great success with communication ahead of time with both the owner and the property manager.

We picked this property because there we were a group of 2 couples vacationing together for the first time. Being a little nervous of how it would go, we thought it would be best if we at least had 2 bathrooms to allow for as much personal space as we could.

This property ended up being a dream! There was plenty of space for both couples to be comfortable and not be in each others space, but also allowed for us to enjoy each others company. The dock was perfect for my husband (who spends the entire vacation fishing). The rest of us enjoyed spending a day at the quiet pool area.

Marathon is perfect for those travelers who like the keys, but don't want the Key West experience every time. Being able to enjoy the beautiful beaches and great restaurants in Marathon was awesome! Bahia Honda is nice and close, and the Pigeon Key Tour is not to be missed!
