Hideaway By the Sea is located in a small, quiet complex (Gulfpointe II) with only 20 units, tucked away on a private peninsula that juts into the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the islands of Marathon in the heart of the Florida Keys, Key Largo is about 50 miles north, Key West is about 50 miles south, and there is plenty of Florida Keys fun and beauty in both directions. Hideaway By the Sea is a well cared for, two-story townhome with large balconies off the living room and upstairs off the master bedroom, just steps away from the heated pool, and with access to first-come, first-serve dockage. Park under the building, then walk up the steps overlooking the pool to your front door.

Located on the islands of Marathon in the heart of the Florida Keys, Key Largo is about 50 miles north, Key West is about 50 miles south, and there is plenty of Florida Keys fun and beauty in both directions. Hideaway By the Sea is a well cared for, two-story townhome with large balconies off the living room and upstairs off the master bedroom, just steps away from the heated pool, and with access to first-come, first-serve dockage. Park under the building, then walk up the steps overlooking the pool to your front door. Inside is a spacious tiled living and dining area with two 10-foot glass doors opening to the L-shaped balcony, a fully-equipped kitchen with washer and dryer and newer stainless appliances, and a handy half bath. Upstairs has two spacious bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed, two 10-foot glass doors leading to the L-shaped balcony, and an ensuite bathroom with double sinks and shower. The second bedroom has two brand new queen beds, overlooks the bay, and has easy access to the oversized hall bath with tub. Hideaway by the Sea has 1,357 square feet, is professionally cleaned regularly, and is meticulously maintained and stocked. You will feel good about calling it your Florida Keys home away from home. Numerous games and books are provided. Beach chairs, a beach bag, buckets, noodles, fishing poles, and other fun-in-the-sun gear may be available for your use while you're staying at Hideaway By the Sea. Selection and amount always varies and is not guaranteed, but there is usually enough to get you started on your adventures. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV is included during your stay. The complex is adjacent to Vaca Cut which provides easy access for Gulf-to-Atlantic boating, diving, water sports, and fishing. The private Gulfpointe II dock is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and has a fish-cleaning table. It's a great spot for fishing, sunning, and watching the sunset. Pelicans, egrets, heron, and other beautiful wild birds are usually there to entertain you. Vacation dockage for your boat (up to 30 feet, no electric or water hook-up provided) is on a first-come, first-serve basis and not guaranteed but usually not a problem. Otherwise, there are nearby marinas and boat storage facilities with easy access. There is so much to do in Marathon, including spending sun-drenched days at beautiful Sombrero Beach, savoring countless bars and restaurants, enjoying the local theater and museums, exploring nearby state beach parks, playing a round of golf, plunging into Marathon's world-class dive sites, and tooling around the crystal coastal waters in your boat or on a rented boat or jet ski, fishing, snorkeling, swimming and diving. Marathon's Turtle Hospital offers guided tours and the Dolphin Research Center offers swimming encounters. Watching the boats come and go never gets tiring, and taking in both the sunrise and the sunset from the wrap-around balconies is a daily treat. Tucked away from high-rise buildings, traffic, and public access, Hideaway By the Sea truly IS a hideaway - upscale, tranquil, relaxing, and very inviting. It's a wonderful place to escape to and a fantastic home-base for your Florida Keys vacation!

Felt just like home, decorated beautifully. Very responsive owners. There's nothing like a getaway to the Florida Keys. We miss Hideaway by the Sea already and can't wait to book again!
