500 Ocean is more than one thousand square feet of pure comfort and feel. It is a two bedroom, two bath luxury stilt home on the water that comfortably sleeps six. It is spacious and open styled with vaulted ceilings in the living room, kitchen and dining areas. Four sets of sliding glass doors provide excellent views of the ocean access waterfront and the tropical foliage. The living room has two couches, one pulls into a queen-sized sleeper. The Living room is decorated in tropical decor with wading birds, five foot pictures and four foot high vases. The home has a 20 x 32 foot relaxing veranda just outside overlooking the waterfront. In addition, a full length balcony travels along the entire length of the home on the waterfront side. At the end of the Balcony even an elevator is provided to haul groceries and people to the second floor. All sliding glass doors empty out on the balcony or Lanai areas, where you can step out for a breath of fresh ocean air or check the steak and lobster cooking downstairs on the Bar-B-Que. From your overlook, you can just catch a glimpse of the open ocean to the south, and watch the earliest of sun rises from the east. 500 Ocean is perfectly positioned on the island of Marathon. Only seconds by boat to the Atlantic Ocean, and only Minutes to the Gulf of Mexico. Two Oceans and No Waiting are served up every morning with quick access to both.
500 Ocean has two separate bedrooms. The master bedroom is spacious with plenty of room for storage. The master king-sized bed is positioned toward the waterfront view and wake-up sunrise. The sliding glass doors in the bedroom offer a wonderful waterfront view and access outside to the balcony. The master bedroom has a full sized private bath, and private remote color television. A readout is also provided for the wind-speed metering equipment. With this, the Captain can check the conditions for an early fishing trip without leaving his bed. If the wind is too high, he can just roll over and hit the snooze button on the alarm clock.
The Guest bedroom has two twin beds for flexibility which can be slid together to produce another king bed if desired. The home is fully equipped with central heat and air conditioning for full comfort on balmy nights with no breeze. However, the elevated nature of the home and close proximity to the ocean provide access to frequent trade winds. These winds provide a pleasing breeze at night which you can enjoy on the Lanai or let them gently whistle through the house while you sleep. The sounds of the rustling palm fronds produce a pleasing background sound broken only by the splashing Tarpon in the water below.
In addition to the two bedrooms, the large couch in the living room pulls out to a queen-sized sleeper bed. All linens and pillows for all the beds are provided. The Living room queen sleeper also has a waterfront view.
The kitchen is set up just like home and has all the niceties for preparing your own tropical meals and beverages. It is fully equipped with a full sized self -cleaning range, full-sized automatic microwave, dishwasher, full counter appliances, coffee-maker, toaster, refrigerator with tea-maker and all the pots, pans, silverware and stoneware needed. Tropical designer dinnerware is fully stocked in the kitchen cabinets. In the drawers is everything from lobster scissors to a blender. There is a large dining area adjacent to the kitchen with an oak and tile dining room table. In addition, the kitchen has an eat-at bar with oak stools to provide a place for a quick fisherman's breakfast or for passing out rations of grog and Pinia Coladas.
Conveniently placed upstairs right next to the kitchen is the storage and laundry room. A brand new full sized washer and dryer are provided for your use. A stockpile of additional linens and towels is available.
