Anglers Park house description

Why would anyone want to rent a house on a canal right next to other houses and no real place to swim when you could rent this private stunning place surrounded on 3 sides by water. We have the most charming and spectacular and intimate property in Key Largo for your vacation rental. With our own private beach and lovely breezes, stunning moon rises over the water, gorgeous sunrises and sunset skies and tropical gardens and delightful breezes, you couldn’t have a better place for an enjoyable stay.

Historic Shadow Point' estate, a gated community, offers an exclusive retreat for vacationers desiring an intimate and private setting. This vacation rental is perfect for boaters, kayakers, canoers, divers and fishermen and can comfortably accommodate family retreats, workshops, film shoots, anniversary parties, and commitment ceremonies without the restrictions of hotels, receptions and brunches. This historic one-of-a-kind estate offers a glimpse of Key Largo as it was at the turn of the century. With its original Dade County hard wood floors, sinks in every room and unique pocket slider windows, the two guest houses offer the vacationer a chance to step back in time and experience the charm of days gone by. Located on a gated hammock point, the 2.5-acre estate is filled with lush tropical trees and a 260-degree view of pristine Key Largo Sound. It has its own private beach ready to launch kayaks and paddleboards or built your own sand castle. The best dive reefs in the country are just a short boat ride away.

HISTORY: Shadow Point was built in 1917 by a ship captain and later bought by Chicago Industrialist, Frank Sweeting, for his fishing friends. After his daughter and son-in-law, Leila & Marvin Adams, inherited the property, Adams spearheaded the design and construction of the nearby canal that links the bay side with the ocean side of Key Largo. It is now know by the locals as ' Adams Cut'.
Named for the beautiful changing shadows and light that filter through the tropical hardwood hammock, Shadow Point is located on Key Largo Sound, the ocean side of Key Largo. Today, this estate offers the same relaxed atmosphere and seclusion of an earlier era. The 2.5 acre point is filled with lush tropical trees including Buttonwood, Gumbo Limbo. Lignum Vitae, and Key Lime. With a 260-degree view of pristine Key Largo Sound, Shadow Point is an exclusive retreat for those desiring an intimate and private setting.

ACCOMMODATIONS: The main house has four large bedrooms with twin beds in two rooms and 2 king beds in the other two. There are private baths in both bedrooms with king beds. The large kitchen is user-friendly and perfect for viewing the lovely trees and water while sipping coffee. The dining table can seat fourteen for family gatherings. A large breezy porch with hammock and two daybeds runs the length of the house and offers a panoramic view of the water. The guest cottage has a small stocked kitchen, two bedrooms that each contain twin beds, a living room with a queen pullout couch, and a charming screened porch. Air conditioning, cable TV and wireless Internet add comfort and convenience. The property has 3 docks one of which has electric and water and can take a boat that draws up to 4 feet. This vacation rental is perfect for boaters, divers and fishermen along with being large enough for family retreats, workshops, and film shoots. We prefer to rent both houses together so you can experience total privacy and seclusion.

ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS: Swimming, sailing, canoeing, and kayaking are available on site. Boat rentals, para sailing, reef diving are nearby. Local attractions include Theater of the Sea, a marine mammal park, 5 miles south; Swim with the Dolphins, 3 miles south; and the Key Largo Community Park, with swimming pools, tennis courts, and a fitness trail. Shopping and restaurants are only minutes away. We have had numerous celebrations at Shadow Point. Please call for information.
