About the property

House, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath On Large Lot, 50 ft. Dock on Deep Canal

License # PLR2015-00440

You'll love this place! With great attention to detail, this 3/2 house is conveniently located in a quiet yet centralized area. The famous Sombrero Beach is just a hop-skip and a jump away.

This house is very spacious; sleeps up to 8; and has a large kitchen with all the comforts of home. You'll also appreciate the convenience of a laundry room. This house is completely stocked to make your vacation perfect; including the must-have blender. On a rainy day, you can stay indoors watching cable TV on flat screen TVs with DVD players in each room. The house is nicely decorated and more importantly, very clean. The master bedroom has a King-size pillow-top bed to dream for. The 2nd room has a queen bed fit for a queen; and the 3rd room has a full-size bed with trundle. All new plush linens are included. The yard is large enough for trucks, cars or other toys with plenty of room left over to just lounge around the above-ground pool, in the patio or on the hammock. The BBQ is ready and standing by for your freshest catch; a couple of burgers; or your favorite meal. There's a large dock with everything for the serious fisherman, including a fish cleaning table.

There's no need to worry about the added cost and inconvenience of renting bicycles. Here, you'll enjoy free use of our bicycles to roam the island during your stay. You'll love our bicycle built for two! There are lots of places to visit at your leisure without the need of a car. Indoor games such as Wii, checkers, backgammon and poker cards also provided. wi-fi included.

Boat Lovers-- this is it!

If you have a boat and love fishing, you'll love the docking facilities at this house. The dock is 50 ft. long on a deep canal and well lit for the night owl who loves to hang out by the boat while still within socializing distance. So boaters wont miss happy hour activities with the rest of the crowd. The dock is also equipped with bumpers to protect your boat; and water hoses for easy cleaning and preparation. It's truly a great place to hang out with lots of space for everyone.

You name it - this house offers many details designed for comfort and practicality. You can't beat the convenience of several nearby boat ramps. Boaters can easily access either oceanside or the gulf by way of 7-mile bridge for back country flats fishing. You'll have it all.

Great surroundings!

Everything is a just short distance away. Sombrero Beach has areas for picnics, vollyball, and a playground for the little ones. For shopping, there's Publix, Kmart, Walgreens, as well as many local establishments to make your stay more comfortable, including a nearby post office. There are countless restaurants with a good variety within 1 mile. The 7-mile bridge is also nearby. Feel like dinner and a movie? We have a great place for you. The quaint movie theater nearby plays the latest popular movies and even serves wine. A few minutes down the road, visit the Sunset Grill for great lunch or dinner poolside with ocean view.

If you just want some quiet time to relax and reflect, there's a nearby public library; but if you're in the mood for KEY WEST--just jump on the convenient Trolley, which picks up next to Kmart for a nominal fee.

Aside from Sombrero Beach Park, you can go to the huge Marathon Park just a few minutes away that has lots of activities for kids of all ages, (tennis, skateboard, playground, etc.) If you want to try something different, visit the Dolphin Research Center & swim with the dolphins. So many things to do, places to go and things to see--or NOT... It's the Florida Keys... Do what you want --when you want.

I invite you to enjoy!

Cute beach place

  • 4 of 5

A cute beach house that comfortably fits six people. Had our two teens come with us it would have been tight for two families. The kitchen was well stocked but there were limited cleaning supplies. I feel that an owner should leave a few trash bags for maintenance and laundry detergent if it is expected you will start a load of sheets upon checkout. The house lacked enough beach towels and you aren't allowed to take them off property which wasn't convenient for us because we traveled from out of state and didn't bring towels. The house needed a bit more upkeep in our opinion (remote batteries dead, dryer made awful noise, bathroom outlets didn't work, pool water was green) For the price of the rental, we felt these things should have been better tended and perhaps the owner focuses more on high season rentals in the winter. The location was good and its about a 3 minute drive to the beach and lots of restaurants in Marathon! We loved the iguanas in the yard and enjoyed a few mangoes from the tree. The neighborhood was just okay, in fact there was a loud party well into the a.m. across the street one night even though we were warned about the noise ordinance. Not the owners fault, but still a bummer nonetheless. Overall a fun and memorable stay in a cute beach house!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home - we are a family of 6 with a dog - we all had comfortable accommodations - the dog enjoyed the fenced yard - I enjoyed the fock for our boat - the home was adequately stocked with cooking wares - the location of the home is close to grocery stores and the canal feeds directly out to the Ocean - we had a wonderful stay and would use this property again!

Amazing stay, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was full of Florida Keys charm! Although Keys-ish, it's completely updated and modern inside. The kitchen and bedrooms are beautiful, the balcony is comfortable and breezy, the downstairs area is open and relaxing. I can keep going, but I won't. Haha. Just check it out for yourself. You won't be sorry! Can't wait to go back!!
