Private Island Rental with 19' Boat, Seabird Key

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Marathon, Florida Keys, Florida
Seabird Key is a ten acre private island available for rental by the week featuring an architecturally stunning home with gracious porches and multi level decks; a private, sandy beach and beautiful, tropical gardens throughout. Only 5 minutes offshore by boat, this is the Island that has it all....towering coconut palms, chickee huts, swinging hammocks, tropical gardens, and breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico. Seabird Key is the place where Swiss Family Robinson meets Ernest Hemingway! The tropical home is built of cypress and has an old Florida elegance that well suits the Island environment. The interior decor is enhanced with nautical antiques, but the amenities and features are quite up to date. The home comfortably sleeps eight.

Sunbathe on your own private sandy beach with towering coconut palms. No, you're not in...

Interaction with guests
Seabird's manager, Adam will greet you upon arrival and take you over by boat to the Island. Once you are comfortable with the boat docking techniques and have gotten familiar with all the systems on the Island, he takes his boat back to the mainland and leaves you with the Seabird 19' Boston Whaler for your use during your stay. He is available should you have any issues either on the Island or with the boat. Adam will schedule one visit out to the Island while you are there to check the fuel levels in the tanks, water levels in the cistern, etc. He will do this routine check to make certain that your stay goes very smoothly. Adam typically comes out on Wednesday, but the time can be scheduled at your convenience.

Wow. Seabird Key is one of a kind. We felt like we were in the swiss family robinson movie. The house's main floor is perched at the same level as the tree canopy. If you love water this is the place for you. We lived...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
All rentals based on a Saturday to Saturday stay. Check in/ 4 PM, Check out/10 AM. I can't stress enough how important it is to check in as close to 4 PM as possible. Consider this when making your flight reservations because you do not want to be transported by boat with your luggage over to the Island after dark. If you check in after dark, you miss the manager's orientation and you could be confused about how things work on the Island. The orientation regarding the boat is also important and if you're crossing the bay in the dark, you will not get your barrings. Please make sure that on the day of your arrival, you check with Seabird's manager and keep him posted on your schedule.

We have a max number of people which is 8.

Check out is 10 AM on shore. Our turnover is always Saturday. Please be considerate and adhere to this time. The entire crew will be waiting to get out to the Island to prepare it for the next group.

About the neighborhood
Seabird Key is just a 5-minute boat ride offshore Marathon, Florida on the bay side. Seabird's mainland launch site is on a canal for easy access from boat to car. Marathon is in the middle of the Florida Keys and is known for it's great fishing, swimming with the Dolphins, the historic 7-mile bridge, turtle hospital, and Pigeon Key. On your own Island, you are the only residents and total privacy is assured. Stirrup Key, an upscale private residence neighborhood, is just across the bay. Historic Key West, only 45 minutes by car away where you can step back into the life of of Hemingway.
Getting around
Most guests love having a car because a day trip to Key West is typically on everyone's schedule. Also, the drive over the Seven Mile Bridge leading to Key West is breathtaking and should not be missed. Also, it's great to have a car to drive down to the 7-Mile bridge, park and walk the bridge. There is a pedestrian path parallel to the bridge that is not to be missed. Islamorada is a 45 minute drive in the opposite direction of Key West. There is great tropical shopping in Islamorada as well as fantastic restaurants.

How to get there
Airport: Miami: 100.0 mi
Most guests to Seabird Key fly into either Miami or Ft. Lauderdale airports. From Miami, Seabird's mainland launch is a 2 1/2 hour drive with easy traffic. If it is a holiday weekend, or if there is congested traffic, it can certainly take a little longer. Flying from Ft. Lauderdale adds approximately 45 minutes to the commute. Flying into Ft. Lauderdale is no problem, but consider that flying out of Ft. Lauderdale will require an early rise from the Island if you get back in time to make the flight. Flying into Key West is great and is only a 1 hour drive to the Island, but often the connection into Key West is problematic. We recommend that you check out all three options...Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Key West. We also recommend that you rent a car which will be useful for groc... more
