Big Coppitt Key apartment description

Welcome to our Key West getaway. Wish you were here! We love the Florida Keys and Key West! We bought this property in 1971 on our second visit to the Keys. The sign said $100 down and $100 a month and we were hooked. A few years later we built on the property and started our annual vacations to the Keys. We've had wonderful times with family and friends over the years. Now we would like to share it with you.

The apartment you will be renting is on the ground floor less than 30 steps to a deep water canal that is great for fishing, swimming, lounging in or just looking at. You can also dock your boat right there. There's a swim out and ladder. Also, we have an outside shower - great for rinsing off after a swim or a long day on the boat.

For cooking and eating we have a full size kitchen with a bar that seats 3. We don't have a stove though! And we haven't missed it a bit! There are so many fabulous restaurants - we have Bobalu's (1 mile away) for wonderful home cooking, but you don't have to cook it. They will even prepare your own fish for you with all the trimmings. And Gieger Key Marina just down the road is right on the water and it is beautiful. Kind of a layed back bar type of place with great food and local entertainment some nights(also 1 mile away). Key West has so many great restaurants and it would take me all day to tell you about them. Our favorite is 7 Fish on the corner of Elisabeth and Olivia. So we don't cook much. When we do, we have a hot plate, a crock pot and electric skillet inside, outside we have a Weber gas grill and table and chairs for 4. It works fine for us and probably will for you too.

We love getting out on the water, fishing, snorkeling, kayacking, diving for lobster or taking an eco tour. It's all close by! Or you can stay on land and just enjoy lounging. We've got many beautiful palm trees and lush landscaping.

Our apartment is 6 miles from Key West, just far enough! You can go to town for lots of excitement and then come home for some peace and quiet. It's all good in the Keys! We highly recommend the Conch Tour Train for general and historic information about Key West and the Florida Keys. Shopping is OUTSTANDING! Bar hopping is CRAZY! People watching is EDUCATIONAL!

So come and enjoy - you won't regret it!

                            We had an awesome stay at the Bonefish Lodge! A very clean and quiet place to stay. The Lobstering was great and we made friends. We also learned that Lobster Heads cooked on the grill was a new treat we had been missing! Thanks Dan and Diane for sharing a wonderful place in Paradise

                            We had a gang of 4 people go down for the 4th of July week and we had such a great time. It is great little place to stay. It rained the whole time, but the place a great covered poarch to grill out under and sit and watch the rain. The neighbor hood is quite and nice. If you are looking for a place just outside of Key West, then you found the right one here.

                            The room was very clean and roomy, all the necessities were there. My wife and I had a great time in the Key's and using this as our rest was what made it great. We were close enough to Key West to enjoy the night life, yet far enough away to to relax in the evening. We are cetainly going to return hoping we can book this same space!

                            We had a great time at the condo in Coppitt Key. Once we went into vacation mode and learned to cook without a cooktop or oven, we became creative having great meals outside on the patio overlooking the canal. Saw Iguanas, cameleons, tried fishing, and brought fish and shrimp back to grill. Wonderful. Thought the condo, itself, was ideal for our crew. Comfy. The owner goes out of his way to inform you of the surroundings. Key West is close and convenient. We found a place close by that sells seafood, where we purchased shrimp. They were yummy.

                            We had a great stay! Very comfortable accomodations and a great base from which to explore the lower keys. Property description and photo's were spot on. The property was clean and well maintained. The iguana's were a huge bonus. Dan was very responsive. Recommend Geiger Key Restaurant/Bar - laid back, comfortable and great view of the water. Also recommend Turtle Kraal (restaurant) in Key West, The Turtle Hospital, the Butterfly Conservency (Key West).

                            Great location. Condo was intimate, cozy and perfect for my family's stay. Deep water canal perfect for my boat.Would recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing, off the beaten path location within driving distance of all the Key West flare. Can't wait to go back next year for longer!!!!!!!

                            The place is just as described if not better and we had everything we needed. The owner was also very responsive of any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, so much that one poor wine glass didn't make it (sorry Dan). We will be back again for sure!

                            This was absolutely one of the best getaways that I have ever had!!! The house was unbelievably beautiful, clean and neat...and believe me...Dan was right...you do not need a stove!!!! you have everything that you need (TV/WiFi/Hotplates/Gas grill-my favorite) ...restaurants everywhere...Key West is very close...say 10mins drive to the beach...15 mins to Duval etc...was nice to stay right outside the city ... party at Ricks/Magaritaville (best martinis)...then go "home" to tranquility. and beauty. Words cannot describe how beautiful this house is...on the canal... the rooms are large...the bathroom - very very large and exquisite!!! Now about Dan...what is there to say... a true gentleman and a scholar!!!...Extremely patient, trustworthy/honest and very nice!!! The price - you will not find anywhere this nice at such a great great price!! Dan...thank you...thank you thank you!!! I hope to get back very soon...just need vacation days and hopefully there will be vacancy!!!

                            We enjoyed our stay at this property. My children, ages 8, 11 and 13 had fun seeing all the local iguanas hanging on the trees and swimming in the canal. We enjoyed having a kitchen to cook meals in as a money saver and the washer/dryer was a plus. The owners are very responsive to questions and the apartment was clean and well stocked. We felt very comfortable as though we were home. We spent time at local beaches (Higgs Beach, Ft. Zachary Taylor, Bahia Honda) and did a Sebago snorkeling tour. I highly recommend the Conch Train Tour of the Key West (Dan, the owner suggested this and he was right!). Key West is rich with history! Another fun place to visit is the No Name Pub on the No Name Key. What a neat place!

                          About the owner: Dan & Diann live in Treasure Island, Fl. Dan is a General Contractor and avid fly fisherman and Diann is a retired RN and a Quilter

                          Why the Owner Chose Big Coppitt Key:
                          Diann and I fell in love with Key West after a visit here in 1971. we built this vacation home so that we could visit as often as possible. Our family has spent many memorable vacations and continue to enjoy the keys lifestyle.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Being on a canal with quick access to the gulf side flats and lobstering 10 minutes to key west and being able to get out of town to relax has always been nice.
