Lower Matecumbe Key house description

Chesa Mare – our dream home – is located at 137 Leserra Lane on Lower Matecumbe Key at MM 76.4 Oceanside. Our house is at the end of a small private road. When you arrive there, the ocean is on your right and the canal right behind the house. The gorgeous views of the ocean captured our hearts initially, and we are still in love with our home away from home. We hope that you will like it also.

Up a flight of stairs brings you to the living area which consists of a large living room with comfortable seating arrangements and a large dining area that easily seats eight. The cozy den with couch and love seat also contains an entertainment center with TV, VCR, DVD, and many books to choose from. The sofa in the den is also a sleeper. There is a half-bath and a fully stocked kitchen as well as a laundry room with washer and dryer on the same floor. The large deck surrounding the living floor contains lounges, an outdoor table and chairs, and a barbeque with magnificent ocean views.

Up another flight of stairs brings you to the sleeping quarters with three bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom is very large and comfortable, with its own private bath. It contains a king-sized bed, a comfortable arm chair and a flat screen TV. The second bedroom contains a queen-sized bed, the third has twin beds. The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom. The whole bedroom floor also is surrounded by a beautiful veranda with lounges and chairs. The views are incredible and the large, comfortable deck upstairs is one of our favorite hang-outs, with always a breeze off the ocean and breathtaking views.

Our boat slip easily accommodates a boat of 30 ft. in length, and the canal is wide enough for a second boat. 100 feet and you are in the open ocean.

There is easy and ample covered parking under the house.

The house is beautifully decorated and has all amenities, with of course central air and high-speed Internet access.

Enjoy your stay.

              Ocean and canal views right out your door! 07/06/2013

              VRBO Bear stayed here:

              “Chesa Mare” says it all! The moment I arrived I knew my visit would be a dream. The home on Leserra Lane offered plenty of room for a relaxing week on the water. 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms is plenty of space to spread out. The outdoor space is even better! The wrap around decks on the 2nd and 3rd levels is spectacular! The view over coffee couldn’t get more beautiful. Views of the canal and the open ocean never get old.
              The whimsical decorative touches added so much fun! I made a new friend in the Pelican! Sand dollars are in each screen door and since every room has at least one sliding glass door onto the decks, that is a lot of screen doors. The owners helped make my whole experience so much easier and entertaining. They provided a booklet filled with things to do in the area and a pass to get in to the 4th of July fireworks at a local resort. You haven’t seen fireworks until you’ve seen them over the water!
              This home is set up with everything you need from home. From multiple coffee pot options to beach towels and the washer and dryer – all was perfect for a week long stay. The kitchen provided everything needed for preparing each meal as well as picnic lunches to take on the go. This bear even prepared the days catch and made hush puppies to go with it! The dining room table quickly became the center of the home. Aside from meals, it quickly displayed souvenirs and mementoes from my explorations. There was plenty of room for it all.
              I couldn’t have asked for a better home to accompany my trip to the Keys!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We have the best of two worlds; views and access. We have direct ocean access via the canal to the Northeast and we have ocean views in an arc stretching from the Northeast to the Southwest. We are close enough to the restaurants and shops in Upper Matecumbe but far enough away to have a sense of privacy and lots of peace and quiet.
