Property Details

  • Sleeps 8
  • Baths 2
  • Minimum Stay 7 Nights
  • Price$323 per Night
  • Property Description Anyone can rent you their house, I provide a tropical resort with concierge services. This house has it all – a 7 min walk to Sombrero Beach, heated private pool, ocean views, a 'fisherman's' dock, high speed wireless Internet, etc., etc.
  • Marathon recently spent $5M renovating Sombrero Beach - it's one of the best beaches in the Keys. Beach chairs, towels, umbrella, cooler, and sand toys are all provided. The 12' X 28' pool is on the west side, so it gets full sunshine for sun bathing in your Speedo (you'll have a lot of privacy in our back yard). In the winter we can heat the pool to 86 degrees. At night the pool light will change colors.
  • The fisherman's dock has a large fish cutting station, electric, plumbing, sink, lights for when you return in the dark, a hose for your boat and one at the fish cutting station, and rocket launchers on the pilings to place your rods so they don't get stepped on. Use the freezer out back for your bait, ice, and your catch. And what's the worst part about fishing in the summer? Answer: when you catch a load of fish and you have to clean them in the scorching sun when you return. Well, I've taken care of that. I have let the mangroves grow up and over the fish cutting station to block the sun as you clean your catch. There's even a shower to cool you off when you come back (see photo).
  • We are on the ocean side, so you'll have quick ocean access to some of the best fishing in the world. An underwater dock light comes on at dusk and turns off at dawn - you'll be mesmerized by the fish swimming in circles around the light while you sit on the park bench with a glass of wine. Let the children cast a line and Voila - they caught a fish in the Keys - something they will always remember. Mangrove snapper, tarpon, angel fish, sting rays, and nurse sharks have all been caught off of my dock. I have counted a dozen tarpon lurking in the shadows at night (see photo). The light attracts bait fish and the bait fish attract tarpon - tarpon are a fighting fish - you can't eat them, as they are all muscle - and if you hook one, you had better hang on for the ride - you might hook one, but not many will 'land' one - they will literally come straight out of the water and spit that hook out - by the August timeframe, and being creatures of habit, the tarpon know that they can come over to my house and have a snack - these pics were taken in August one year. Peak time for tarpon is August, September, October, and the begining of Novemeber (before the first big winter chill hits the Keys). Of course rods and reels are provided.
  • Spectacular sunrises over the Atlantic are available off of the master bedroom balcony. You will sleep like a baby in our beds, as they all have have 600 thread count sheets. All 3 bedrooms have a tropical theme decor.
  • High speed wirelss Internet, with coverage out to the pool will let you send your pics to everyone before you leave Paradise. Take a picture of Iggy the iguana out sunning himself at the pool (see pic). Family room TV has a 40' plasma TV - 2 additional color TVs are in the bedrooms (40' color in master bedroom).
  • The house sits on an unusually large lot, large enough to fit two houses. It sits way back from the street, ensuring your privacy (see photo). A picnic table and Weber gas grill are on the deck out back. We also provide an extra tank of propane gas, just in case you run out when you're cooking that special dinner.
  • Our house is fully furnished with everything you’d expect – towels, linens, microwave, toaster, etcβΒ€¦..and yes, there’s a blender. We also go the extra mile and provide the miscellaneous household products such as laundry detergent, dish soaps, paper towels, etc. No need to hassle with these upon your arrival.
  • To assist in making your stay more enjoyable, we will also provide a list of restaurants, including those off the beaten path that only the locals can find. I highlight those restaurants that we frequent when we are down there.
