Join us in Marathon, in the heart of the Florida Keys. Starting June 1, 2020 The Keys will be open to tourism. We look forward to hosting you! Stay in a private suite in our ground-level home, with only a few steps up to your private entrance. Enjoy our 50' lap pool, large patio, and tropical gardens. Launch rented kayaks from Sombrero Beach, or enjoy activities anywhere in the Keys from our central location.
We offer a bright and airy guest suite featuring a private entrance and ensuite bathroom. Guests in this room have direct access to the pool and patio area as well as our tropical garden listed with the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Wildlife Habitat. Our home features two separate guest suites, each with separate listings. This ensures our guests a quiet and private experience with, at most, two other guests staying at the same time. Guests only share the common areas such as pool and patio. The guest rooms are completely separate, each with a private bath. Hosts live full time in the main part of the house, which is off-limits to guests.
When you arrive, you will park your car between the dignified Verawood tree with its bright yellow flowers and the endangered Keys native Myrtle of the River, we will show you to your room along a footpath of cut Keys coral, lined by tropical wildflowers, banana trees, native endangered Keys trees, and exotic palms. Be sure to note the butterflies darting among the native bushes. Enjoy the comfort of your in-room chaise. Relax to the sound of the waterfall cascading into the 50’ saltwater lap pool surrounded by palm trees and red-leaved bananas. In the morning, wake to the song of our resident mockingbirds and cardinals. In the summer, we are visited by the endangered white-crowned pigeon taking its place among the ospreys and songbirds. Feel free anytime to stroll through our garden which is comprised of numerous endangered Keys native plants including the bizarrely-shaped semaphore cactus, and, hidden in the back garden, the very rare milkbark tree.
This large guest room, perfect for 1 or 2 adults, features a king-size bed and your own private entrance. Your room opens directly to the patio and pool. Luxury linens and tropical ambiance will make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The bed is topped with a cooling gel, memory foam mattress to help you sleep comfortably. The ensuite bathroom features a frameless glass shower with a large rain shower head and wand. Large windows in the bedroom showcase tropical landscaping and the beautiful pool area.
For your convenience, the room has a mini refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dinnerware and closet with space for hanging clothing as well as drawers for more clothing storage. We provide a small selection of coffee, tea , bottled water, and a few snacks to get you started. This room does not have a kitchen, and is not meant for cooking.
