Sunrise over the ocean, sunset behind the coconut trees, stars reflecting in the water like diamonds; this is what frames your daily life over here at Ray's Place. Here, you are reminded of how beautiful the world is.
Once in your vacation home, let yourself be charmed by the gentle sound of the slow rolling waves on the beach, grab your binoculars when spotting a pod of dolphins passing by, or stay up to enjoy the moon rise over the ocean.
It is our pleasure to welcome you here to our little slice of paradise. We offer a clean and functional apartment with a breath-taking view over the Atlantic ocean.
In addition to all the attractions you have planned to visit there is plenty to do right here on property: you are welcome to enjoy a barbecue cookout, a leisurely swim in the warm waters right off the property, a kayak excursion, or simply relaxing beachfront at the tiki. The beach is your backyard... snorkel gear comes in handy, so do water shoes and a fishing license.
Across the street is the beginning of a section of the Florida Keys Heritage Trail that leads you all the way to the town of Marathon. We particularly like to go for a walk there early in the morning when a variety of birds are out and about. These include cardinals, mangrove cuckoos, white-crowned pigeons and yellow throat warblers.
The Grassy Key Outpost restaurant is next door offering a nice selection of dishes, it is also a convenience store.
In our neighborhood, Tursi, Gambit and friends are waiting to put on a show for you at the Dolphin Research Center. Home to Flipper in the 60's, DRC is located 1/4 of a mile from the property.
These are merely suggestions in addition to all the wonderful things that are yours to discover throughout the Florida Keys. We are so proud of our Grassy Key Island that we had to boast about it!
