'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 five 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. Most 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.

Beautiful Waterfront Estate

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family get away. We had 5 kids ages 1-11. The indoor pool was great- didn't have to pack up to take a dip. Having it heated was perfect. We had great fishing at seawall. Tutor and Jim we great. We took family pictures in the back and side yard. The beds were all very comfortable. We will plan another vacation and would dream of staying anywhere else

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Just checked out of this terrific home. The house and location were perfect for my family of 8 which included my 3 yr old grandson and my 82 yr old mother. The single-story house was perfect for my mother who has difficulty with stairs. My grandson enjoyed the indoor pool as did the rest of us. The location and view is perfect for relaxation and privacy yet has many amenities accessible within minutes including groceries and the beach. Some family members scheduled a private fishing charter that was nearby and caught more seafood than we could eat. We also took a day trip to Key West which is only an hour away. We have vacationed in Key West in the past and must say the entire family, which includes 4 people in their 20's and 30's, prefer the relaxing environment of Marathon over the congestion of Key West.

The house is very clean and the kitchen is fully equipped and open to the family room and deck making it comfortable for us to all be together. The owners were nearby and accessible for any questions or needs.

I have rented houses for family vacations in many places including Bahamas, Hawaii, and my family informed me this was their favorite. They have requested we rent this house again for our next vacation. I definitely got a "mom you did good" with this pick!!

Perfect for a big group.

  • 4 of 5

Great house for a large group with teenagers. Superb location in marathon on a man made lake.

Pros:

Tudor and Jim really went out of the way to help us and make sure our stay great.

Walking distance to a very beautiful beach( 1.7 miles.) and very close to grocery store. Great pool for the kids.

Our family visited from Sweden and loved the house.

Cons, no good place for everyone to sit and eat together if you are more than 8 and you really need 2 washing machines if you're supposed to wash towels and linens upon departure.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. Just as a point of interest, it is a natural lagoon that the house is on , and it is EXACTLY just over one mile to the beach { less than one and one tenth of a mile} . Maybe you were thinking Kilometers ! Point well taken about the dining room table as it is crowded for more than 10 guests. Thanks, and glad that you had a good time, Jim & Tudor

Relaxing waterfront - clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A perfect home for our group: five adults and four teens. The teens wanted to share a bedroom and the bunk beds were perfect. The two living rooms allowed everyone to spread out to talk or read while others watched TV; yet all nine fit in the living room comfortably together. Plenty of outdoor seating, although most of us preferred to sit on the wall near the water. Outdoor grilling was our preferred cooking method. The indoor pool was wonderful. Bathrooms are updated and clean. Enjoyed the walk-in rain shower. The "teen" bathroom was perfect -- double sinks in one area and a pocket door to separate the toilet/shower area -- allowed the teens to get ready together. The extra refrigerator in the garage came in handy. Nice washer/dryers. The house is in a great location - close to Turtle Hospital, Dolphin Research Center, Boondocks, Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda Beach and approx. 1 hour from Key West. The neighborhood is nice for a jog and long walks. We had one glitch upon arrival which Jackie quickly took care of; also the sliding glass doors to get in to and out of the house were a bit challenging (humidity?) but that didn't stop us! Thanks Tudor and Jim, you were fantastic to work with. We appreciate your quick response to our inquiries/emails. The views are breathtaking; the sunsets across the water were wonderful; and the house is beautiful. Highly recommend this oasis; close to everything yet away from it all!

Lovely Home - Beautiful Setting - Jackie was great

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I rented this lovely home as a reunion destination to scatter my Mother's ashes. We grew up in Miami and always vacationed in Marathon back in the 60's and found the Keys a great deal different today! However, we thoroughly enjoyed the location of the home...very close to a very nice beach and great area to take long walks. Jackie was a great resource for restaurants, etc. and lovely to work with. She went out of her way to take care of us and made us feel comfortable and ensured that we had everything that we needed. Also, working with Tudor was a pleasure! She was easy to work with and I also felt certain that we would be taken care when we arrived. We even neglected to return the keys to Jackie as we were in a rush, everyone leaving at different times to different destinations. Jackie was very understanding! You will not go wrong by renting this home. Thanks to all for making our time memorable.
