Stock Island house description

Located within Key West city limits, we are in one of Key West's only waterfront neighborhoods.
Our living reef(illuminated at night), just steps from your door, is home to a myriad of tropical fish, and is frequently visited by manatee, dolphins, sea turtles and other tropical sea friends.
We are about 4 miles from Smather's Beach, downtown and world famous Duval Street. We are half a mile from the 18 hole golf course, liquor and convenience stores and some great local restaurants and bars. We are 2 miles from the airport, & shopping. Pirate Head Cove is the best of both worlds! Close enough for downtown action when you want it, and quiet enough to relax when you don't!

Your rental comes with 4 Cruiser bicycles for your use, 4 kayaks, snorkels and masks, water toys, a cooler for the beach, and some limited fishing gear. If you play the guitar, let us know, we will lend you one!

Immaculate and elegant waterfront guest house with 2 queen bedrooms and a sofa bed in the living room.

Piratehead Cove is ideal for a family of 5 (one couple and UP TO 3 children 6-16 NO MORE), or two couples. **We cannot accommodate 3 couples comfortably.
Our rates are not negotiable, (as we provide many amenities that you would pay extra for elsewhere) and we do not rent for partial weeks(unless our calendar shows one). Thanks for your understanding.

Fully equipped kitchen with oak breakfast bar, dining table, modern designer-bath with slate-tiled shower, gleaming hardwood floors, covered patio with outdoor dining furniture, central air, cable TV & wireless internet. Professionally landscaped tropical garden setting by prominent Key West landscape artist.
Just a few steps across the yard to dive off the dock into the crystal clear ocean, or sun yourself on the patio. Includes bedding, towels, linens, deck towels, beach towels, dishes and cookware, limited spices and condiments. Gas grill, 6 person hot tub and off-street parking for one vehicle. **Maximum occupancy 2 couples in guest house
(or 2 couples with up to 3 children under 16). 2 queen beds (the sofa bed is in the living room which would be suitable to accommodate a child 6-16yrs, but not adults or couples).
After a busy day downtown, come home and relax in the hot tub and watch the sunset.
SHARK FEEDING TOURS OR SUNSET CRUISES
Want to have the time of your life out on the water? How about feeding sharks?? Captain Jeff will take you for a sunset/shark feeding tour, (and we usually see dolphins too!) $399 Maximum 4 Adults or 2 Adults and 3 children. Call to reserve your tour today! 305 394 1290

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About the owner: Jeff is a well-known professional musician, (played with the likes of Charlie Daniels and the Gatlin Brothers), pilot and licensed Captain. Michele is a retired university professor and renowned Canadian visual artist and writer. We fell in love with Key West the minute we got here! Romance abounds, so many places to get away by yourselves. Key West is exciting! Unlimited things to do with others (nightlife, events, music, fishing, exploring). Key West is culturally rich, from the symphony to the literary fair to Sunset at Mallory Square and all the artists, performers and artisans, to the unique and diverse restaurants,.... you'll find that the only problem with Key West, is that you won't want to leave!!

                              Why the Owner Chose Stock Island:
                              Key West is home to festivals galore from Fantasy Fest, Parrot Heads in Paradise (MOTM), Schooner Wharf Wrecker's Cup, Gay Pride and Women's Fest, Lobsterfest, Yacht and Powerboat races, and arts and music festivals too numerous to mention! From families, cruise vacationers, alternative lifestyles of all kinds to weekend vacationers, EVERYONE is welcome in Key West! Whatever your pleasure, you'll find pleasure here. ~Fair Winds!~

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              The best thing about PirateHead Cove is that we are close enough to downtown to be there in minutes, but we are far enough away to escape if you want to chill a bit without the crowds and noise. You can bike to the beach, or downtown(one of the best ways to visit Key West and tour the gorgeous Victorian architecture) or find that unique restaurant hidden just off the beaten path! We are half a mile from the golf course, some cool local restaurants and convenience and liquor stores. We have a beach cooler, beach towels and chairs for your use, plus 4 Cruiser bicycles, a guitar (if you play!), snorkel gear, floaties and some limited fishing gear and 2 kayaks. You can relax in the hot tub or sun yourself on the patio. The property has enough room to sleep 6 in the 2 bedroom guesthouse, but is more comfortable for 4. Schools of tropical fish, visits by our local manatee, dolphins, and sea turtles are just some of the wonders you can see right from our patio! PirateHead Cove boasts a beautiful natural living reef, and the water is 32 feet deep and 300 feet across to mangroves and the Atlantic. The cove is a wonderful place to kayak, scuba dive, snorkel or swim. In the summer the crystal clear water reaches the high eighties and low nineties..Step off the dock into the ocean..you are right there!
