Breathtaking and absolute privacy all around you.
Our Gulf-side home is located next to the World-Famous Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key, Marathon, FL.
Imagine sitting on the dock out on the Gulf side watching the Dolphins at the Research Center or the most stunning and amazing sunsets your eyes can see! We have had the pleasure of watching the wild dolphins come in to play with their friends. “Absolute peace” is what you will feel sitting on the dock, sitting on the deck at the pool, laying on the balcony overlooking the Gulf or just lounging on the front water area is what anyone will feel once they get the chance to book this home and stay with us!
We are located in a wooded area off the road and a very private entrance from Overseas Highway in Grassy Key coming into Marathon. As you drive back into our driveway you are greeted with open wooded nooks of benches and clearings where wildlife is seen. You are presented with a beautiful 4 bedroom/2bath home with a wrap-around balcony all around our home with plenty of outdoor seating in front or back. Each bedroom and Living rooms offer TV’s for everyone.
Picture sitting on our front balcony; all you see is woods and are surrounded by peaceful nature sounds of birds like Mourning Doves, or other small birds that bring plenty of smoothing sounds to our home. We are located on the back end of the Dolphin Research Center and have the privilege of listening and seeing all the sights and sounds that come onto the property. We have plenty of seating all around the wrap around porch/balcony of our entire home! You cannot see any traffic from this house and nobody will know you are on our private property for total peace of mind and the magic of privacy for just you or your whole vacationing family. You cannot see your neighbor on the south side of this property. Your back porch/balcony is a full view of the Gulf Side of the waters.
The Gulf side of our Island features breathtaking skews of so many blue and turquoise colors you could almost paint a picture yourself. We have the absolute pleasure of partaking in the Sea grass restoration at our dock area and are excited to share the sights with everyone upon completion of that project. You don’t have to do anything except sit at the dock and enjoy true sea life encounters from turtles, stingray, plenty of fish, and of course the array of birds in our area.
We offer with the vacation rental, 2 kayaks; a 1 person and a 2 person, and a paddleboat, bait freezer and a portable fish cleaning table. Our dock has a ramp that you can put in and out for the kayak(s). We can accommodate a small flats boat to our dock area and have approximately a 2 foot depth of water at the end of the dock during low tide. So if you bring a boat, you must know your water depths and have your own bumpers for your boat. We are located near the Grassy Key Marina that can dock your boat if it is too big, just let them know you are staying at our home and they can find a spot for you for a fee. Fishing, swimming or snorkeling off our dock is an added plus to our property.
Parking isn’t an issue at our home. We have 3 under home carports and areas to park your trailers. We do suggest to check with Marina if your boat is too big to ensure they have space for your boat on the dates requested.
Pictures do no justice of what you are able to capture while vacationing with us at Dolphin View. Of course, there is a reason we call our property Dolphin View, not only with the location next to the Dolphin Research Center but the wild Dolphin that come in by our dock to visit their friends.
We have ample room at our upper deck pool that includes a hot tub and plenty of seating around the pool area. Optional pool heat is offered during the colder months, so you can sit/swim in warm water all the while enjoying the spectacular water view.
Our home is ideal for split families as we have 2 bedrooms/1bath on each side of the house allowing privacy for each family. Each side of our home has a full living room and full dining room for ample seating to play board games, eat, or just sit and watch the sunset. We offer a sitting area that gives you the full Gulf view between the 2 sides of this home. We call it our indoor veranda area that you can sit and put puzzles together, lounge reading a book, magazine or newspaper. Our home is pet friendly with a 20 lb. weight limit and a non refundable pet fee.
This home has breezes that come from the south allowing you to open the windows and doors and feel the full Keys weather and air that brings you down here.
We hope to be able to host you and your family/friends at our home and look forward to hearing from you.
