Relax in the private pool with the Spectacular Shelter Bay in the background...Our home is located directly on Shelter Bay in Key Colony Beach with some of the most spectacular views of open water a guest can ask for. We have had the privilege of seeing Dolphin, Spotted Sting Ray, Manatee right at our dock, turtles, and so much for sea life right on our own property! You can not ask for a better view of the waterways under the bridges and the many marina areas. You can launch your boat at any of these marinas or the free public boat launch only 1 mile from our home; bring your boat right under the Vaca cut bridge right into the bay and up the house. We offer a beautifully decorated home with very large open kitchen/living room concept that overlooks open water on Shelter Bay. Fully screened in porch that allows added seating from kitchen and living room area with 2 full sized patio doors to open up for more room to view the stunning sea life you will get to see right off the screened in patio area. We have a balcony walkway all the way around the house for back and front seating for any or all of your viewing pleasures of both the water and amazing golf course and tennis courts. Our pool is an Olympic sized pool for those who love to get in a great exercise before the day or for many of us who like to lounge, it is even better! We offer plenty of seating around the pool deck area with loungers and an upper seating area . Optional pool heat is available for colder months or as requested. Master bedroom is a king sized bed with it’s own full bathroom filled of tile and a shower to just fall in love with; who doesn’t love a full sized body massage shower? TV provided in this room for your viewing pleasure. 2nd bedroom offers a king bed located off the private hallway and near the 2nd full sized bathroom with full massage shower. TV is provided in this room as well with dresser and 2 full closets Bedroom 3 is located in lower level with queen bed and it’s own full sized bathroom and full shower and massage shower. Our kitchen is complete with lots of amenities like regular coffee pot, Keurig, toaster, and many other appliances that will make your vacation a breeze. Speaking of breeze, open the doors to the screened in patio and to the kitchen and living room area and you will experience the most tranquil breeze around! Lower level offers a full sized bathroom/shower area. When you come in from a long day of fishing, sunbathing, or just relaxing, you can take a quick shower here and come out refreshed. We have 2 full carport areas that allow for plenty of parking and for a boat trailer. Our dock area can accommodate a boat up to 40 feet or 2 boats with a full sized fish cleaning table and light. Bait freezer is located in the carport area. We are located close to many shops, bait stores, amazing restaurants, and plenty of walking and biking trails on our island. Our home is directly across from Golf Course and Tennis courts for the many guests who like quick access to activity. Key Colony Beach is a family-friendly area with plenty of room to walk/bike to just about anywhere on the island. Kayaks are available on our property with life jackets. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do, and thank you for viewing our home.

About Melissa Parsons

Gail and I (Melissa) are  property managers of 5 spectacular vacation homes in Marathon and Key Colony Beach. I vacationed in The Florida Keys 3 times, and fell in love. I could not imagine living anywhere else. I have a vacation rental business here now. I love to fish, dive for lobster, and just enjoy the islands. We would love to host your vacation in the Fabulous Florida Keys, we are confident that you will love it here too.
Why we chose these properties.
Location is Everything! Seaside Sandpiper  is in the heart of the fabulous Florida Keys. Marathon Island has everything to offer from the best charter fishing to the best beach in the Keys right around the corner. Let's not forget 5-star dining and a great selection of Tiki Bars and local get-a-ways. Then you retire to your private resort home and wake up to breathtaking sunrises in almost every room in Seaside Sandpiper! This house is perfect for oceanfront weddings or events! We can make recommendations on wedding vendors.
Gail and Melissa also have four additional properties, Dolphin House and Orchid House are located in Key colony Beach.  Mango House and Dolphin Villa 5 are located in Martahon.All of the properties have water access and also have stunning water views in their own unique ways.
We have reviews from past guests at Seaside Sandpiper listed here and  on VRBO~ Check them out. We also have a few reviews from our listing on airbnb , that I have to manually list here:
