Bird of Paradise

Welcome to Bird of Paradise, located in the Heart of the Florida Keys.

The "Bird of Paradise" is a stunning single family, private pool home located DIRECTLY on the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy incomparable panoramic views of the azure waters of the Florida Keys.

This 2,300 square foot home features a private in ground pool and newly installed swim platform. The Gulfside location of this home means the water at the platform can be very shallow during low tide down to as low as 1.5'.  The platform is ideal for kayak launching and jet skis, only experienced mariners should attempt to maneuver boats to the platform. Enjoy incredible sunsets and water views from the Gulf Front pool and outdoor area.

This stunning 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom beauty boasts all new furnishings and a brand new gourmet kitchen complete with granite counter tops. The exterior of this home was freshly painted.

Relax and enjoy the splendor of a Florida Keys sunset from the expansive screened porch that overlooks your own private pool or reserve kayaks that you can launch directly from the back yard and explore the abundant sea-life surrounding the area. The lovely Gulf front pool will ensure you enjoy every day in the Keys as you relax around the azure waters. Pool heat can be provided upon request on those rare chilly days.

This Florida Keys vacation rental features all of the comforts of home including laundry facilities with a full sized washer and dryer, and a fully stocked kitchen with all appliances, cookware, dishes. Your home will also have a toaster, blender and coffee maker for your use to make your stay feel more like a home away from home.

The home has central air conditioning and numerous ceiling fans for those warm tropical days. There are ceiling fans in the dining and living areas as well as in all the bedrooms. The flooring throughout the home is wood laminate and tile to make any sandy feet no problem after a long day at the beach or on the water. In the glassed-in Florida room, you find seating and a dining table overlooking the pool and the Gulf of Mexico. This room is cooled and provides a great place to watch the sunset into the Gulf of Mexico and end another day in Paradise.

Please keep in mind that all homes in the Florida Keys can be subject to sea-grass blowing in with strong winds. The grass is where our sea-life live and reproduce and can cause an odor when it accumulates. Just a small price to pay for Keys living!

The common areas are open and inviting and offer plenty of seating areas as well as a sleeper sofa in the living area. Enjoy open water views from many locations throughout the home. All bedrooms and the living area have flat screen TVs with basic cable and a DVD player is located in the living room.

Bird of Paradise allows for plenty of parking with room for 4 cars (2 covered spots) as well as boat trailer parking.

This home is located within 5 miles of grocery stores, drug stores, a hospital, boat ramps, bait shops, restaurants, bars, movie theater and all other conveniences you may desire. Guests may also wish to visit the world famous Turtle Hospital, Dolphin research center, Key West and Duval Street or relax at Bahia Honda park and Beach.
Max occupancy is the number of occupants the City allows and does not guarantee to bed for that number. Please read bed description thoroughly. This home has a maximum occupancy of 8 guests however we do have additional guest fees for parties over 6 in the amount of $15+ tax/night per each additional guest.

This home is pet friendly with a non refundable pet fee per pet of $150-350+ tax/week depending on the weight of your pet. Cats are not allowed.

Ideal Location, Great Views, and Lovely Pool
5/5 Stars

We stayed at Bird of Paradise and had our holiday of a lifetime. After reading the previous comment we were worried about the seaweed but took a chance because we wanted a private pool along with access to the ocean. When we arrived we were pleased to find no weed and no smell. Just a clean, fresh new looking house with great bayside views. We enjoyed all that Marathon has to offer with great diving, restaurants, shops but most of all the fishing was superb! Coco Plum was great and very easy to deal with. Looking forward to returning again next year.


A great family vacation
4/5 Stars

Our family enjoyed a week at this lovely home in Marathon. All newly remodeled and very spacious. Really enjoyed the washer and dryer for the grandchildren. Just be aware of the grassy water that is stagnant in front of the home and on many days has a horrible smell. We got used to that and on a good day with the wind blowing the right way we didn't notice. Pet-friendly made this home perfect for our family.

Beautiful Vacation Home 
5/5 Stars
This place was amazing. Beautiful view to wake up to and to go to bed too. The pool was a definite amenity for our group. The house and accommodations were great. Could have used a few more mixing bowls and baking pans, only for those that have to cook every night. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it for anyone wishing to have a tropical scenery, and the convenience of shopping, dining, boating or just relaxing by the pool.

House was very easy to find, stocked well for initial set up (we brought plenty of supplies with us, but had we not, we would have been fine for the first few days), clean and nicely set up. Plenty of room for our group. Pool was AMAZING. We had no issues docking our boat and were thrilled that everything in Marathon was so close by.

Gorgeous property. Had everything that we wanted. Great open living space. The fishing wasn't what we had hoped for at the dock. But i'm assuming this was Irma's doing.

The location was great. We saw manatees from the dock and the fishing was also good. We caught a tarpon from the dock! Also caught nurse sharks, bonnet head sharks, mangrove snappers and barracuda.

They were extremely helpful in making this a wonderful vacation not only for my husband & I, but for our 4-legged babies as well.
Most places that allow pets won't consider larger dogs. Our labs go everywhere with us so it was important to find a place that would also welcome them. We all loved every second of this vacation & look forward to returning next year! Fantastic home!

I worked with Angel and she was great. She was very knowledgeable of all aspects of the rental process and answered every question that was asked of her.
The week at Bird of Paradise was the most enjoyable vacation that I have spent in my entire life. My husband and I are already planning a return trip next year!!!
