Property description

Location, location, location briefly describes this small piece of Paradise. Located on a private and quiet open water lot, this charming home offers a wonderful view even to those people who do not want to go outside. While sitting inside or lazing out on a lounger, the tranquility and beauty of the tropics are yours.

Fabulous open water from 35 foot seawall with dock posts, cleats and fish cleaning table. Cook your catch on the outdoor grill or eat inside still enjoying the relaxing ocean view from the bright great room facing the canal. Kitchen has beautiful wood cabinets and breakfast bar.

Venture Out Resort is a quiet little secret located just 20 miles from Key West, and is a water-lover’s dream! This 64-acre condominium resort was created to put the ocean right at your backdoor. We are located on Kemp Channel, which is one of the most accessible boating channels to both the beautiful back country, as well as a quick, ten-minute ride to the open Atlantic and it’s coral reefs, including the world-famous Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary

Venture Out is a gated community. There are an abundance of amenities, including an 80' olympic-sized, heated pool, which is located ocean-side, with separate kiddie pool; saltwater swimming/snorkeling area adjacent to the pool; and a newly remodeled bath house.

The marina has two boat ramps, a fuel dock, and a convenience store, which is open seven days a week. The store has everything from beer and wine, to bait, ice, fishing licenses, milk, bread, cheese, snacks, and more! There are two tennis courts, which are lighted at night, a Bocce ball court, basketball court, and shuffleboard area. The Recreation Hall has dart boards, a ping pong table, and a billiard table, as well as a self-checkout library.

There are non-denominational church services on Sunday, and pancake breakfasts on Saturday, with all of the pancakes you can eat, sausage, coffee and juice for an incredibly low price! The pavilion serves as a multi-purpose building, which has many activities including line dancing, bingo and movies!

There are nearby attractions, such as the Looe Key Reef, Old Town Key West, Bahia Honda State Park, the Dolphin Research Center, the National Key Deer Refuge and the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge, just to name a few.

Cudjoe Key is close to both Key West and Marathon in the section of the Florida Keys known as the Lower Keys. This provides easy access to events such as the offshore powerboat races, sailing regattas, fishing tournaments, Fantasy Fest, Star Party, and many more. The Lower Keys include well-known destinations such as Big Pine Key, Summerland, and Sugarloaf.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: When I was a teenager I came to Key West with my parents in our families RV. I remember stopping at Venture Out they were just building it and we stopped to watch them cut the canals. Over the years we came to Venture Out and rented various units. Both of my sisters eventually purchased homes here and when I sold my home in CT I decided to buy here as well. I am originally from Long Island New York but currently live with my two sons in CT.

Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key:
This is a beautiful home with an amazing view and location. The boys and I spend all of our school vacations here where we enjoy the beautiful water of the island and take an easy drive into Key West for the fun! When you stay in Key West you tend to lose a sense of the natural beauty of the islands and the locals. When you stay too far up the islands the ride is too far to go into Key West and enjoy all the happenings. Venture Out on Cudjoe Key gives you just the right balance of both.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Venture Out resort is a wonderful place for kids and adults! My favorite thing to do is watch the boys fish while I lay on the couch! The boys have freedom to ride their bikes and go to the store for an ice cream. Real relaxation that you just can't get by staying at a hotel.
