Seven Rental Homes Situated in a Private setting

Enjoy the beauty of the Keys as you overlook Bonefish Bay. Our fully furnished stilted homes are ideal for multi-family gatherings or friends wanting to vacation together yet have their own space.

Outdoor Living

Drink in the view as you enjoy your morning coffee from one of our spacious waterfront balconies. Surrounded by nature’s beauty, our refreshing saltwater pool is the best place on the property to soak up the sun and unwind. Or perhaps you would prefer playing a game of cards under the tiki hut, reading a novel in the shade of a palm tree or reeling in your catch of the day from our deep-water pier. Guests also love to kayak through the mangroves and finish their day relaxing in their unit’s private hot tub.


Ideally situated near Vaca Cut, both the ocean and gulf are easily accessible. Restaurants, shops and entertainment are within walking distance. Guests enjoy taking day trips to Key West, spotting the key deer on Big Pine Key or venturing to Bahia Honda State Park by boat or car. Marathon has an aquarium, a movie theater, golf, The Turtle Hospital, and Dolphin Research Center just to name a few nearby attractions.
