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!

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 deck into the ocean..you are right there!
