Property description

This is a very unique rental. It is the most photographed location on Conch Key. Being a historical landmark it is a perfect getaway for honeymooners. Our home is very private. You are not sharing a condo building or apt. Certain times of the year a beautiful sunset can be seen from the balcony adjoining the master bedroom upstairs. The master bedroom has a romantic feel as you enjoy the interior lighting and view. Enjoy the TVs in bedrooms, and living room.
There is a private dock located 50 feet away. Jump in your boat and within five minutes you are in the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf. Lobstering and fishing locations at its best.

You will enjoy sitting under the Sea Grape trees where you will be shaded from the Florida sun while you grill out. The only sounds you will hear come from the beautiful songbirds in the trees. Relax and enjoy the beautiful breeze.

You may also enjoy walking around our quaint and charming island or walk right to the Long Key Channel bridge. Enjoy spectacular views as you walk or bike across the bridge.

Conch Key is well known for its perfect fishing location. Minutes from the dock you are in the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico. Excellent fishing awaits you. There is a fish cleaning area located where you dock your boat and water washdown.

During lobster season, if you don't partake in harvesting, you may walk right across the street and purchase fresh lobster from the local lobstermen that live here.

Our location is on the south side of the island for our northern visitors who come to visit in Florida. You will not be hit by the strong northeastern winds that blow through in the winter on the northside of the island.

Once you experience Conch Key you probably will be back again and again.

Although this is not on the water, there is private dockage included across the street.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I are Florida Natives residing part time on Conch Key and Daytona Beach where we are involved with our two children in a family business. We bought our dream house on Conch Key in 2004 and decided to purchase another property two years later, our rental location.

Why the Owner Chose Conch Key:
We love this island so much that we plan to retire here one day and wanted to have another business interest here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We can honestly and factually say that you will not find another location as unique as this one in the Florida Keys. It was constructed by the original owner, a king fisherman, in the mid sixties. There is a bird aviary on the property where he used to house homing pigeons that he raised. He collected cannons, anchors and misc maritime memorabilia. The property as a whole is a work of art including the antique bottles in the walls. The landscaping is lush and tropical and sitting under the sea grape trees out of the Florida sun while you grill is so relaxing. Its a great spot for bird listening and watching!
