About the Property
Top floor 3BR/2BA condo comfortably fits up to 6+. Beautifully furnished and overlooking aqua-blue Gulf waters! Watch water activities, birds, and marina bustle from the balcony. Enjoy the full kitchen or local restaurants. One mile from the famous Seven Mile Bridge. Visit unique Key hour travel time.
Marathon is one of the favorite islands in the Florida Keys. A short trip over the Overseas Highway takes you away to another world filled with swaying palm trees and perfect weather.
Marathon is a great place to go for boating, fishing, or some family island fun. Charter boats leave our many marinas throughout the day to bring you out so you can enjoy the ocean, and land the big catch you have been seeing in your dreams.
The islands of Marathon are also home to many rare and endangered species of sea turtles. You may be lucky enough to catch sight of a some out in the beautiful island waters. The Turtle Hospital (easy walk from the condo), dedicated to rehabilitating injured sea turtles, offers guided educational tours of its facilities and rehabilitation area.
Dolphins are also sited playing in the waves behind the boat! The Dolphin Research Center is dedicated to helping with rescues and rehabs as well as ongoing research in using their sonar abilities.
Marathon is in the Middle Keys......a collection of 13 islands. Tropical winds, sandy beaches, endless ocean, and a laid back atmosphere are the defining characteristics of Marathon and the Florida Keys. The Keys are a chain of islands stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean, the Florida Keys are a hotspot vacation destination that has the unique trait of being able to be loved and enjoyed any time of the year! And the best part is, you can have a perfect vacation without the hassle of booking a hotel room.
The condo complex is located at Mile marker 48 abutting the Faro Blanco Marine Resort with an active light house, restaurant and marina. The area offers deep sea or shallow water fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, swimming, biking, a dolphin exhibit, shopping and other water and non-water activities.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
Restaurants, marina, light house, Turtle Hospital, Seven Mile Bridge Park (1 mile), walking/biking trail.
I thoroughly enjoy walking along old Seven Mile Bridge on the way to Pigeon Key and searching for sealife in the shallow aqua/blue waters. Spotted rays, dolphin, shark, sea turtles and a huge variety of tropical fish are there - if you are lucky enough to see them! Marina is available for boat dockage and trailer parking on a first come, first serve basis. Trailer parking is free. However, boat launching is not available on site but nearby.
Guest Discount: Condo guests enjoy a 15% discount on food and beverages at the Yacht Club Restaurant and bar at the resort.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Gary was born and raised in Minnesota and lived for many years in Michigan.. He moved to Florida in 2006 and has been enjoying the sunshine and beautiful waters of Southeast Florida and the Florida Keys. Faro Blanco is a special place with excellent water views, lighthouse and the activity of a bustling marina.
Why this property? I chose the Florida Keys for a vacation destination for the past 20 years so it only seemed natural to want a permanent place of my own in the Keys. It is centrally located with great views, restaurants, activities, etc. While different from Key West with a small-town feel, Marathon remains close enough to visit the 'Conch Republic' when. and if, desired.
