Property description

Welcome to Island Living at mm 74.5. Luxurious living for the whole family-- white, sandy beaches for the children, fishing for all, fabulous dining at many restaurants or take-out from The Trading Post, shopping for all but especially for casual beach living. Publix, the Big P, is a grocery store sent from civilization. Two hardware stores close by for the men. A few books donated by friends for your reading pleasure.
Chickees built by the Indians on the beach to get out of the sun, stunning aqua water for swimming or just viewing. Outdoor shower. Comfy on the beach or inside this eclectically furnished condo with you in mind
While grilling by the beach, enjoy spectacular sunsets and relax with a glass of wine. It doesn't get much better than this :-) ...
This is a family owned second home. We are native Floridians who have grown up on or near the water enjoying the pleasures you will find here. Friendly neighbors, some who live here year round and others like us who come when we can.
King bed in the master, twins in the second bedroom. A convertible single bed that can be utilitzed stored in the closet in the master. All linens furnished.
Please contact me with unanswered questions.


Keywords: Private white sandy beach in front and deep water canal for your boat in the back. Spectacular location.
Completely renovated recently to remind us of property in Portugal. Comfortable casual beach furnishings. Tile floors. Parking underneath, two stories living above.
Unfortunately, our condo docs do not allow short term rentals! Must be 28 days running, so sorry if you are looking for a few days. Please think of us when you want to stay in Paradise for 28 days!

Since this is not a commercial venture, we will not be able to accept credit cards
Our condo docs require a minimum stay of 30 days running.  Our charge for this
period of time is $2,750.  We would pay the first $100 of the utility bill and
bill you for the balance.  We have unlimited long distance call in the US so we
will pay that bill also.  Any and all taxes to be paid by the renter.

Note: Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Owner info

About the owner: We were a family of four now grown to a family of 12 including five grandchildren who are growing rapidly. Adult males (3) can't get enough fishing, serious fly fishermen. One princess, four princes, three moms and one Senior Citizen. We all have a special affinity for Florida beaches and having visited many not only here but around the world, we think this is 'IT' hands down.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Matecumbe Key:
Obviously everyone knows this is THE Fishing Capital of the World. So that combined with our gorgeous private beach, we feel fortunate to have landed here! Easy access for all of us. However, airports in Miami and Marathon are not too far.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You can do nothing or do something every day. Relaxing is one of the primary occupations when you get in the Island Mode. No strain, manana--there's always another day.
