Grassy Key house description

Ya don't come to da islands to stay in da town! Relax in our tropical paradise away from the traffic and noise of US Hwy #1.

When we decided to purchase a home in the Florida Keys privacy and being close to nature was top on our list of requirements. We found the perfect combination on Grassy Key, a small island between Islamorada and Marathon made famous by 'Flipper' and the Dolphin Research Center.

On Grassy Key we are close enough to enjoy Marathon restaurants and grocery shopping yet still be able to explore dive sites in both the Upper and Lower Keys!

The perfect location has now been turned into the perfect oasis. Special features include a gourmet kitchen that will please the most discriminating chef. Our guests enjoy luxury bedding with quality linens, fluffy towels and bathrobes. Wireless internet service and free domestic phone calls if you must stay in touch with the outside world!

After a full day in the sun there is no better place to relax than in the cool fresh water pool surrounded by the lush gardens. Check out the massive coconut and royal palms, the 9' high bird of paradise, the banana and key lime trees, blooming hibiscus and orchids. Just don't lay under the coconut trees!

Enjoy boating? Our private dock was built to accommodate our 42' Catamaran needing 4' depth. Or spend your days exploring the Gulf waters in our two kayaks.

Professional maintained by our local caretakers, Doug and Donna you will be pleasantly surprised at the extra attention we take to make your stay enjoyable!

Need more proof? Take a look at our past guest's comments, then check our availability calendar for your vacation dates. Don't hesitate, after 5 years of satisfied guests this home books months in advance.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: Patrick and I enjoy the water and we fell in love with the quaintness of White Sands, named by her previous owners, Pat and JoAnn Ballinger.

              Why the Owner Chose Grassy Key:
              We wanted to be away from the commercial Key West scene yet close enough for an all day visit...it's less than an 1 hour drive.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Your own private tropical gardens with unobscured sunset views from the end of the 300'long dock. Plus palm fronds singing you to sleep at night....you're going to love this home.
