Summerland Key villa description

Spectacular private island retreat in the Florida Keys has recently undergone a major renovation, updated with the most advanced technology available including a state-of-the-art solar system, with backup generator and a desalination system for self-sufficient green living. Located half mile off-shore, this 3 acre island is accessible only by boat and includes a parking lot with dock on Summerland Key . This tropical retreat features an open floor plan with an abundance of large windows and French glass doors to bring the outside in. Offering three bedroom suites each with their own balconies for private moments overlooking the ocean. The gourmet kitchen features new wood cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel Viking appliances, and panoramic ocean views. Dine al fresco from one of the many balconies while watching the sunset or go to the rooftop observation deck (Widows Walk) for magnificent views from every vantage point. This rare offering provides all the peace and tranquility that island living offers with the security of being only one half mile from shore. The entire island consists of six acres including submerged land with three acres upland ground. Cool off in the ocean from your private dock or take a refreshing dip in the pool.
