There are no bridges or causeways connecting Seabird Key to the mainland. Guests can only access Seabird Key by boat. Upon your arrival to Seabird’s mainland launch site in Marathon, Florida, guests are greeted by our manager. He will assist in loading the luggage onto the 19′ Boston Whaler. From the moment you cruise down the canal, only 5 minutes by boat, your private island adventure begins in the Gulf of Mexico.
Seabird Key is home to one of the Key’s most lush, tropical private gardens. There must be over 50 species of palms. We also nurture a fabulous collection of Cycads and numerous native species such as Black and Red Mangroves, Gumbo Limbo, Sea Grape, Joe Wood, Silver Buttonwood, Pigeon Plum and Giger Trees. You will also find a cactus garden and other succulents. Even a rain shower on the Island is moving.
Seabird Key’s beautifully crafted “Old Florida” style home offers multi-level porches, expansive decks, and a widows walk towering 35 feet above the mangroves and wildlife sanctuary. The treetop elegance, colorful Caribbean furnishings, and antique nautical accents recall Swiss Family Robinson fantasies. Floor-to-ceiling cypress louvers capture the cool sea breezes and provide spectacular views. The restful island hideaway accommodates up to eight comfortably with its two Queen bedrooms, each with its own private bath, and an upstairs loft with two bunk beds and another full bath. The indoor kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking.

Sunbathe, swim and snorkel on your own private beach. Enjoy the year-round water temperatures averaging 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit or 24-30 degrees Celsius. Feel free to stretch out in one of our beach hammocks, in the shade under Gumbo-Limbo trees. Enjoy a good book and a frosty drink. Take a walk on your own beach but remember, you are under no obligation to do anything if you choose not to. If you want to just unwind, you have come to the right place. Here exclusivity means restful privacy.
