Cudjoe Key cottage description

This great family vacation spot near Key West is in the Florida Keys! Stay in this charming two-bedroom 'Conch Cottage' on a one- acre oceanfront property, surrounded by lush tropical gardens!

Our home is situated about 15 miles from Key West, and features an oceanfront swimming pool and a boat launch and dock!

This is not a 'typical' vacation rental! Each cottage is beautifully decorated with unique character. They have all the modern amenities including satellite TV, microwave ovens-- and, of course blenders! Other conveniences available upon request include free use of a washer and dryer!

Tropical fruits including bananas and coconuts grow throughout the property and make delicious drinks! The cottages are surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens which are beautiful places to relax and meditate and just enjoy the fragrances and color.

Each cottage has two queen-size bedrooms, and a sofa bed or daybed in the living room that converts to two very comfortable twin-size beds.

This is a great location for families! You can explore the ocean shore by kayak (it's normally very calm because of the reef), fish from the dock, snorkel or dive the reef, or swim in our oceanfront pool! It's all waiting for you!

We're about halfway between Key West and the best beach in the Keys -- Bahia Honda! So whatever you might like to do is just a short distance away! Access to the 'Back Country' and the National Wildlife Refuge is right on our island. Looe Key, the best reef for snorkeling and diving, is just a few miles off our shore.

There's a full-service marina just a mile or so away, if you want to rent a boat. We also have limited dock space available on our property.

We're just minutes by boat to the best diving and snorkeling in North America! Great sport fishing, boating, sailing, and windsurfing is available right from our dock! Sightseeing and shopping in Key West is just 15 miles away.

Whether bicycling or swimming, you'll be in awe of the lush tropical gardens and exotic wildlife that surrounds you. Relax by our oceanfront pool. Enjoy a game of golf. Or take a tour of the pristine wildlife preserve in the backcountry! It's a national treasure! And Bahia Honda, the best beach in the Keys (and many think in the world) is just minutes away!

After another memorable day in paradise, let the tropical ocean breeze caress you as you sip an afternoon tea or other beverage in our shaded lounge. It's all within a few minutes of your quiet and comfortable accommodations.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2003

          About the owner: We left the corporate jungle a nearly a decade ago and searched for a great location to raise our four-year-old son. We found it here in the Florida Keys.

          Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key:
          There was only one requirement we had while searching for the right property: It had to have the 'WOW!' quality. As we walked around the property, looked out at the offshore islands from the dock, walked into the cottages, and relaxed in the pool, all we kept repeating to each other was: 'WOW!' We knew right away we had found our new home!

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Our property is close to Key West, but far enough away from the commotion and the noise to enjoy the real keys. The reef is less than a half-hour by boat, but if that's too far you can fish right from our dock and grill them up for an evening meal by the pool. Some beautiful offshore islands like Marvin Key are accessible by boat or even kayak! Restaurants and stores and less than a mile away. And the best swimming beach in the Keys, Bahia Honda State Park, is 20 minutes away!
