About the property

2300 Sq Ft, 4 Br, 3 Ba, Deepwater Canal Ground Level Spacious Home

The casa de munday is a lovely 2300 sq. Ft... 4 bedroom 3 bath deep water canal home located in the middle of marathon mm52. One hour to key largo(mm104) and one hour to key west(mm1)... Ground level with no stairs to climb. The home has plenty of parking for your cars as well as boat trailers. The back yard is fenced with a fish cleaning station( fish cleaning station table is starboard, a plastic polymer, that will not dull your knives), plenty of fresh water, an outside bait freezer and full sized refrigerator for your drinks as well as table and chairs under a covered patio with fans and lights. There is also a large therapeutic spa to relax in after a long day. Inside the home offers huge and well furnished rooms. The 'fish room' measures 14ft x 30ft and has a 60 gallon fresh water tropical fish tank, a 46'flat screen tv, game closet, wet bar, full sized bar refrigerator with ice maker, three leather couches and recliner plus second dining table with a wall of windows overlooking the canal. The dining/living room is over twenty-four feet long x 12 ft wide and has a conversation area with two couches. Recliner and large stuffed chair at one end and a large glass dining table at the other. The highlight of the room is the onyx serving wall. The large galley kitchen has all the top amenities like the 31 cubic french door kenmore elite refrigerator with ice and water in the door. There are 27 well stocked cabinets and 15 drawers. The stove has a warming drawer. Also a drawer full of condiments.

There are two bedrooms that have bathrooms attached. We named all the bedrooms, the master has a king bed/bath and is called the captains quarters, the second bedroom is the dolphin room with a king bed, the third room is the first mates berth and has a queen + trundle beds and full bath, the fourth is the beachcomber and has a queen bed + trundle beds. We call the third bathroom the turtle pond. Each bedroom has flatscreen tv and dvr. Entire house has wireless wi-fi. The house is ceramic tile through out. Marathon has a beautiful beach at sombrero as well as a great playground picnic area. At the end of our street is a dog park and children's play ground as well as a restaurant that serves three meals a day, tiki bar with live entertainment. There are lots of things to do in the keys for the whole family. We have left a book with all kinds of information on everything with suggestions made by the locals. Please feel free to use it and if you find something new please add a note for the next vacationers.

If you are a fisherman we have a page in the book with some of our private coordinates to our fishing holes. You can fish the atlantic reef in 10-15 minutes directly out of our canal. You can venture out to the marathon hump (about 26 miles) for the big fish or you can go to the bay (gulf of mexico) about 20 minutes away. If the atlantic is rough usually the bay is calmer. Our book tells you where and what you can catch as do the posters in our fish room. Our 60 ft. Wide canal has manatees visit quite often and there are all kinds of fish you can catch right off the dock ( 75 feet of seawall with space for two boats) so all you need are your clothes, toothbrushes and a happy smile and we know you will catch the 'keys disease' and never want to leave this little part of paradise.

Just remodeled and redecorated last year. I have a ton of photos on my iphone contact me for more photos. Small dog ok with owner approval.

About Richard Munday

Richard was born and grew up in Lakeland Fl. He graduated from UF in 62 as an industrial engineer.Bonnie was born in San Francisco and has lived all over including a five year stay in Beiijing China. She graduated with a D.P.S. degree from Bennett College. They are avid travelers and fishermen. When they came to Marathon they caught the 'Keys Disease' and decided to settle in Marathon. Still owning property and their main home in Lakeland it became dificult to split their time. Thus they decided to rent their home here for part of the year and stay the rest. Bonnie, being an artist and interior designer created their Casa De Munday as their retirement home. large enough for the family to visit. It is magic every time they come and find it hard to leave.. So please enjoy their 'special retreat'

Richard Munday purchased this house in 2012

Each room is different with a coordinating crown molding..the patio has fans and lights and is covered as is the fish station. too many unique features to mention.. come see for yourself.. you'll fall in love! all over again!!

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and well stocked. Actually bigger than the photos indicated. We had 3 generations, ages 21 to 90, and all had a good time. Good location for water activities. Deep canal was great for our boat. Lots of room on dock and in the outdoor seating areas. Richard was really helpful and accommodating with our boat.

Great location and nice house/amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in December and were impressed with how nice the house and furnishings were. Everything was clean and well taken care of. The owners had even decorated for Christmas, which was much appreciated because we were there over Christmas and with little kids.

Best parts of the house: industrial outside ice maker was awesome, outdoor and 2 indoor refrigerators were much appreciated, kitchen appliances were new and nicer than the ones at my house, lots of cooking untinsils and pots/pans, plenty of space to relax and large rooms, overall Ocean decor was great!

The Owners were also very nice and easy to contact - nothing bad just a couple of questions about things - and responded quickly.

The location was great, close to everything and yet quiet and calm. We loved that there was a nice kids park a block away and strongly recommend checking out the local beach.

Overall a great experience and a wonderful house - was as nice as advertised and probably a bit better!
