House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Born and raised in Georgia I have always loved the climate in Florida. I was in awe when I first visited the Keys and drove across the old wooden 7Mile Bridge, I knew then I wanted a home in this tropical paradise. After spending several years looking, I fell in love with White Sands and her previous owners, Pat & JoAnne Ballenger! Thankfully I was able to acquire this home and now have my own slice of paradise to enjoy when I can get away from the horse farm.
Katreena purchased this House in 1998
Why Katreena chose Marathon
It's a perfect location on Grassy Key, private and removed from the noisy traffic of US Hwy #1. Close enough to Marathon for grocery shopping and enjoying the conveniences of fine dining. Less than an hour south is the tourism capital of the Keys - Key West is brimming with cruise ships and night life.
What makes this House unique
Your own private tropical gardens with unobscured sunset views from the end of the 300' long dock. Delight to the music of palm fronds singing in the breeze. Enjoy the Gulf views from the expansive wall of windows, the comfy deck chairs on the back porch, or our colorfully painted Adirondack beach chairs

Once again we enjoyed a fantastic week at Katreena's beautiful waterfront home - perfect, quiet location. The tropical pool setting, landscaping and ocean views are absolutely breathtaking and the house is very clean and comfortable. It is also equipped with everything you could possibly need. We spent a lot of time fishing from the dock and had some of our catch prepared at one of our favorite restaurants ....... so much fun! Thanks again Katreena for an incredible week!
A beautiful property that still feels like a home. Beautiful views from the rear of the property.
Lovely pool area which gets the sun from early morning till late afternoon.
Loved every minute of my time there.
We loved our stay at White Sands! The home and outdoor areas are beautiful and sparkling clean! The dock is very nice. The owner and property manager took great care of us! Will definitely be back!
Thank you for the review. We look forward to having you retuning to the Keys! There is so much to see and do that you need a second visit to fully explore the middle key and Key West!
Great spot for a relaxing vacation!
Thank YOU! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
House was exactly as stated. Very comfortable and one of the best equipped rentals we have ever stayed at. Side note....the driveway is very short. Only enough room for 2 cars side by side. No boat trailer. Our full size pickup used every bit of space.
A Beautiful place!!
It was like you were in paradise, we loved every minute of it. Planning on returning next year!!
