Summerland Key house description

This breezy island get-a-way, fashioned in the casual style of Key West & The Bahama Islands, is the perfect vacation spot for anyone seeking to rent a peaceful, charming and conveniently located beach cottage. Located on the ocean with its own private dock and beach, Windswept's first floor (unlike most Florida Keys homes on stilts) is ground level allowing easy access to the kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and a large screened in porch that stretches the entire waterfront side of the house. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms and 2 adjoining baths. Both upstairs bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open up to a large upstairs balcony with unending water views, a built in sitting area, and an outdoor staircase that leads to the beach.

Bring your boat or rent one and tie up at our new dock. There is also a convenient boat launch on Summerland Key. A vacation to remember for all ages and interests or the perfect hideaway for the artist/writer or fisherman.

                        What a great find this home was for a trip to the Keys! Although there are homes are both sides of this rental, the beautiful vegetation and palms gave it a very private feel. The home was very comfortable, but the best part was the amazing screened living area that stretches across the back of the home with high ceilings and a view that was awesome. The back yard is oceanfront and the pier is a great place to get amazing sunset and sunrise shots. Located just 20 miles from Key West, it was a great location for so many sightseeing adventures. We enjoyed seeing the Key deer on Big Pine Key and the beach at Bahia Honda State Park, near the 7 mile bridge. Windswept is a very special place and we are happy we got to enjoy it for the week.

                        Our family had an incredibly relaxing stay in this charming ocean-front home. Our kids were happy to just stay at the house and kayak, fish, or snorkel, but we managed to fit in some touristy events. The huge screened in back porch provided a great spot to simply sit and relax while watching the activity on the water. We look forward to returning!

                        This vacation home is a true gem! From the moment my family entered we felt at home and relaxed. The home was immaculate and very stylish yet comfortable. Our evenings on the screened in porch feeling the trade winds playing games were priceless. During the day we fished, explored, and took day trips to Key West near by! We will defiantly be back!

                        I was lucky enough to stay at this wonderful location for a week in January. Een tho' the weather was not as warm as we would have liked we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely spot. The Tiki hut is a great spot for a cocktail on a hot day and the screened in back living space complete with large fans is a great place to dine or sew or just lounge. The kitchen is appointed with everything we needed to create great meals-complete with a nice gas grill (located on the back lower deck)Even on cool days the upper deck was a warm spot to sit in the sun and read a book. They even had a great library of movies to view in the evening. I would stay here again. Thanks for sharing this great family spot. KB

                        We LOVED this home! Despite being in the Keys during one of the COLDEST months in over a decade and getting a horrible case of food poisoning from a Key West restaurant, I have very fond memories of our vacation because of where we stayed. Windswept is absolutey lovely. The home was everything that the brochure advertises it to be and more....it actually exceeded our expectations. Everything about Windswept was charming, relaxing and scenic...especially the private beach and the dock from which we enjoyed spectacular sunsets and gazed at the stars. Being there slowed down our pace of life so we could really appreciate every bit of the beautiful view while spending quality time as a family. Windswept was the perfect place for our family vacation and we hope that the owners will continue to share it with others so we can vacation there the next time we're in the Keys. It was absolutely wonderful.

                        What a fabulous trip to the Florida Keys! Your island home is outstanding and we will return as soon as possible. We loved the oceanfront views from our balcony, the downstairs porch for dinner and the dock for cocktails. Thank you for sharing paradise with the rest of the world!

                        Must be the best Oceanfront deal in the entire Florida Keys. The house was very stylish and looked like it should be in a magazine. My husband caught dinner just off the dock and I enjoyed the rare downstairs living space (not on stilts). The upstairs bedrooms have an amazing view!

                      Year Purchased: 1940

                      About the owner: Managed by the children and grandchildren of the original owners who purchased the property in the 40's and built the house in the late 50's. House was expanded and renovated in the 90's.

                      Why the Owner Chose Summerland Key:
                      Property was inherited from original owners (third generation Conchs).

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Great area restaurants (Square Grouper, Mangrove Mama's, No-Name Pub) and Cuban cuisine (5 Brothers). Excellent fishing off the dock - with lighting to illuminate water at night!
