Sugarloaf Key house description

Tarpon House, paradise waterfront vacation home, only 20 minutes from Key West. Heated private pool and tiki hut. Outdoor shower. Two kayaks available. A very private setting at the end of Jamaica Lane on Sugarloaf Key, this tropical property is fenced with gated entry and surrounded by water on three sides. The custom home opens up with a desirable southern exposure capturing warm winter sun and cool summer breezes for year round enjoyment.

Aside from the 'ideal location, a heated pool and a boat dock add to your vacation enjoyment. This home offers excellent fishing right in your own back yard. Watch the tropical fish or catch dinner without untying the boat. Locals know this to be one of the best 'fishing holes' in the area. For the more serious sportsman, fishing is but a quick boat ride to open water!

Dive the coral reef, or jet ski through the Back Country to Marvin Key and enjoy the tropical beach surrounded by warm, turquoise water.

From the spacious covered patio on the ground level to the 2nd story roof top deck, there's no better place to enjoy your tropical vacation. Plenty of room to park cars, boats, trailers. Petersen's Tarpon House-a fun vacation home you're sure to enjoy year after year!

Expansive wildlife area in which to bike, kayak, or hike through and view native habitat and a wide variety of plants, animals, and birds unique to the Lower Florida Keys.
