Amenities & Attractions
Every detail at The Retreat has been considered with the comfort and relaxation of the guest in mind. The property is turn-key and fully provisioned for maximum enjoyment.
A Walk Around the Property
Lounge around all day long and watch the boats go by, listen to the fish jumping and just relax and chill for hours on your very own private beach.
We have one screened in pool and one Infiniti style pool with your own private Tiki hut with a swim-up pool bar. A perfect setting for you to relax while your kids, friends, or significant other can wait on you all day long.
Relax with your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail surrounded by tropical foliage. Enjoy the relaxing sounds of birds chirping and fish jumping in the water. Or challenge one of your family members to a game of chess or backgammon on our built-in game tables.
Hours of relaxation await you with our poolside spa. Hangout with the kids, catch a game, or just relax watching the sunset right from our hot tub, which has more than enough room for the whole family.
The Chef in the family is going to be “wowed” by this kitchen. With everything and anything you need to create that scrumptious breakfast or killer dinner that will be talked about all week long. Admit it, vacations and retreats are all about enjoying amazing food and drink all day long.
Not one, not two, but three sets of washers and dryers. We always have the laundry room stocked with all the detergents you will need to last your entire stay with us.
TVs everywhere you look, including an 80” large screen TV viewable from inside or outside the house. There are 3 additional outdoor TVs, a 50” TV for gaming, and of course, every bedroom has a TV. Stream all your favorite shows, and never miss the big game even when you are outside hanging out in the pool or spa.
Arrive at The Retreat and grab a cocktail from our commercial style Bali Bar that has been stocked for your unique tastes and enjoyment. We offer over 10 types of bottled beers, spiked seltzer, sodas, sparkling flavored waters, wine, top shelf liquors – and we even have 4 beers on tap.
Swim-up Pool Bar
Complete with a dining area that adjoins the Tiki Bar, with LED lighting and Edison bulb stringlights for nighttime use, featuring 2 42” TVs with sound bars.
Bring your boat or jet skis with you or rent our boat for the week. Hours of fun await you on the water.
Fun for the Whole Group
Kayaks and Paddleboards
Launch our kayaks and paddleboards from the private dock and paddle your way through the picturesque canals that lead you to Sombrero Beach and other Florida Keys attractions.
Oversized Scrabble, Monopoly and Backgammon Tables
For the game loving members of your group, hours of fun await the whole family.
Outdoor Ping Pong Table
Adults and kids of all ages can step out into our screened in Lanai and enjoy hours of fun while determining who will be crowned as the new ping pong champion.
Our game room boasts the perfect gathering place for all pool sharks. Grab a beer and cue stick, rack them up and break. Let’s see who has the hot hand.
Fish right from our dock or beach. We provide you with 5-6 rods to get you on the fish. You never know what you are going to catch down here in the Florida Keys. Don’t forget, fishing licenses are required for anyone over the age of 12 in Florida.
With the beach so close, why not grab some of the family and head out for a day of fun in the sun. 5 adult bikes and 2 kids bikes means no one has to be left behind. Helmets are supplied as well for your safety.

FRESH START PANTRY
In Home Automation
The Retreat was designed primarily for meetings of executive groups and families, and with that in mind there are several technology touches that accent the guest experience, including:
Business Class Wifi
Dual Comcast business class internet feeds, which provide 100 mbps service to a fully integrated whole-home WiFi system. The system is highlighted by meshed access points both inside and outside the house, which provides full coverage across the entire property.
There is a Sonos whole-home audio system with separate zones in all bedrooms, indoor and outdoor functional areas that is controlled from smart devices located throughout the property.
The conference room is complete with multimedia monitor and sound, Apple TV, and mini iPad controls. Automated remote control smart device system that controls the spa, pool and Sonos system.
Marathon, Florida is a 10 mile long island community located in the middle of the Keys island chain. Marathon is considered a destination for boating and fishing enthusiasts and represents the charm of the “old-Keys” lifestyle. Marathon Key offers something for everyone in your group: from world class sport-fishing, to nature preserves, to scuba diving and all manner of water sports. For those who wish to venture out, you are only a short drive away from Key West and Islamorada, which make perfect day trips. Marathon also boasts several fantastic dining and nightlife options, from traditional sea-side bars to more formal restaurants.
