Tavernier house description

Sleeps 6-8 comfortably (10 if you use sleeper sofa)

Imagine your own secluded, tropical get-away where the rest of the world is but a distant memory and you indulge in luxurious views, decorator furnishings, and a gourmet kitchen...

Begin your relaxation adventure with your soul-mate in an 18-jet therapeutic massage jacuzzi overlooking the bay... Swing from the hammock while enjoying tropical breezes ... enjoy a visit from one of our local Great White Herons or gentle Manatees that sometimes pass by in the lazy afternoons...

Watch the glorious sunset from the end of a 165' dock while sipping Margaritas and nibbling on shrimp, stone crabs, or other local delicacies... Bathe in the warm tropical sun on our private beach or swim and play in the pristine sandy bottom Florida Bay... venture out in the canoe or float the hours away ... it's all waiting for you.

And if you need to check in on the world, WIFI access is available all the way to the beach~! Also has a DVD home theater with Satellite connection. A true vacation paradise that will bring you back again and again.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: This property is owned by 95430 Overseas Highway, LLC. My name is Diane Davis and I am an owner/member of this LLC. I handle the rental inquiries and property management. I am looking forward to hearing from you regarding our little slice of paradise....

                  Why the Owner Chose Tavernier:
                  It is a beautiful area that offers great diving, fishing and other fun activities and is easy to get to from Miami. We purchased the home in 2002 from the original owners who built it with loving care - from the beautiful wood interior walls, to the lovely long gravel driveway bordered by a natural hammock, which provides privacy and seclusion.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Fabulous sunset views of Florida Bay, great neighbors, private cove, privacy and the laid-back beauty of the Florida Keys... Feels like it's a million miles away from Miami, yet it's only an hour drive. It could be sitting on any tropical island in the Carribean, but it's in our back yard!
