Marathon Caye Canal House
Set in an idyllic paradise of 13-isles, the charming Marathon Key is known for its delightful sandy beaches, turquoise water and barrier reef. Boasting a back-in-time laid back town that is only 10-miles long, it is ideal for families and couples seeking a more remote and less crowded Floridian paradise to vacation to. This island escape is also a boaters' and anglers' haven filled with activities ranging from deep-sea, reef or flats fishing, jet-ski tours, kayaking, paddle-boarding and cruising the islands. For aquatic lovers there's extraordinary diving and snorkeling experiences to be discovered; and for natural history lovers, the island is also favored by its loggerhead turtle inhabitants, with their preferred nesting grounds being at either Coco Plum or Sombrero beaches; encounter with dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center which offers interactive demos in a shallow natural lagoon; and explore the trails and vantage points at Crane Point tropical forest bird sanctuary and rescue center with its natural history museum. Enjoy its delightful waterside restaurants serving up fresh harvests of fish, lobster and stone crab claws while sipping crafted tropical cocktails with little umbrellas; and lull yourself into a peaceful state of mind watching the sunsets and listening to the ocean's song.
Dwell within this marvelous canal-side hideaway with its 1800-sq ft of chic interior space and beautiful views. Located only 1-1/2 miles from Sombrero Beach, guests can enjoy swimming and turtle spotting; and escape out each day on the complimentary bicycles to the sand and surf or have fun exploring the waterway canals on the provided complimentary kayaks, and paddleboards. Spend your days lounging and entertaining with family and friends in the home's dreamy architectural areas, showcasing hardwood flooring, white-washed color theme with pops of color and luxurious furnishings throughout. Enjoy social time gathering around the sun-drenched living room and snuggle up on the plush sofa and loveseat to watch your favorite movies on the 54' flat-screen TV. Summon up your inner Gordan Ramsay in the fully equipped Chef's Kitchen, and nibble snacks and prepare light meals to enjoy at the kitchen's island-bar. Share family-style meals upon the traditional Dining Room table or gather to dine al fresco any time of the day out on its veranda balcony or covered patio seating area with its BBQ grill, mini-fridge and freezer for fun cookouts. For the sports fanatics in the group who can't escape game day, tune in on the provided 42" outdoor TV. Relax by the inviting plunge pool and soak up the sun on the chaise loungers.
