Do you love sunsets and the back country? Then Marathon gulfside properties may be just what you’re searching for.


GRASSY KEY – Gulfside


Located Gulfside at 52nd Street – If you like forests and trees, this may be the place for you.  A natural hammock, this single family neighborhood is very wooded.  You literally wind your way through the neighborhood.  One great amenity is their own community boat ramp, which is a nice feature as the majority of homes here are not waterfront.  Only the homes directly on the Gulf have dockage, there are no canals.

NORTH MARATHON SHORES (aka “Behind the airport”)

Another popular Marathon gulfside area is located off Aviation Boulevard and behind the airport, this neighborhood is a mixture of waterfront and non waterfront single family homes.  They also have a boat ramp but it is open to the public as well.  Homes are situated on either Dodge Lake, a canal or the Gulf of Mexico.  One well known fact with locals is that this is THE place for trick or treating every year.  So be prepared to hand out candy or go out for the evening.  This is a “real neighborhood” where kids can ride their bikes down a lot of streets without going out onto busy US 1.


Stirrup Key is the only gated community in Marathon and is located Gulfside.  The gate automatically opens during daylight hours but at dusk you will need a code or a call to your friend to let you in.  Homes in this area are either located directly on the Gulf of Mexico or on the canal.  For Sale signs are not allowed to be posted so be sure to print out what addresses are for sale before you take a drive through.  Short term or vacation rentals are not permitted in this community so if you are buying an investment home for rental income, this isn’t your best opportunity.  There is a community marina with deeded boat slips, and not all the homes have a dock right behind the house.
