Stock Island house description

Welcome to 'Blue Waters', a two story 3 Bedroom - 3 Bath Key West home, on the water with a Sunset View. Located within the Key West City limits and one of Key West's only waterfront neighborhoods, Key Haven, It is only 1 mile to the Key West Golf Course and 4 miles to downtown. Enjoy the beautiful outdoor entertaining area down stairs. Our neighbors call it an art gallery. Enjoy the many paintings mounted on the fences and decorative accessories. Relax in tropical wicker chaise lounge or the padded Hammock.
Keep your boat in the water docked behind your vacation home. 'Blue Waters' is located on a quiet canal that offers boaters quick direct access to either the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean. Ice down your coolers with 500 pounds of Ice from your own Ice maker located downstairs. This will keep your drinks, lunch and the fish you catch cool when out on the boat or taking a picnic to the beach. (You won't have to pay for a boat slip and also you can wash your boat with our cistern rain water.) Water has to come from Miami and this helps save our environment by using the rain water. (This home is GREEN) Come in from a day on the water and clean your Fish and Lobster right in your own back yard. You will enjoy a great 6' shaded fish cleaning table. Then stash your catch in the downstairs freezer or cook it on the beautiful large gas grill. Jump in the canal and cool off or just relax in the Hammock with a cool drink. With 60' of dock space, this property will easily accommodate two 25' boats. Large fish table, gas grill, 500lb Ice Maker and a Large Freezer, makes this home perfect for a Fishing/Diving/Lobstering vacation. If you do not have a boat you can also fish in the Canal (full of Mangrove snapper) or take the Canoe (provided with the home) out to the end of the Canal and Fish in the deep area.
For fun and exercise, 4 Bicycles are provided to ride around the Islands.

Up to the second story and inside your 'Blue Waters' vacation home you will find a spacious 40' long living area that has vaulted ceilings and 12' of glass sliders opening to the Sunset view over the water. Outside of the Sliding doors you will enter the tiled screen porch. It has seating for 8 at high dining tables and two lounge chairs with ottomans to relax, read, or just chill out and take in the view. Back inside you will find a large gourmet kitchen also overlooking the sunset and water, with all the amenities and dining area that will seat fourteen. The refrigerator has Ice and Water in the door and the stove has a flat glass cook top. Blue Waters is immaculately clean and has just been newly painted and furnished in beautiful tropical colors inside and out.
The master bedroom is oh so comfortable. With a king memory foam mattress and a deluxe memory foam topper you will sleep like a baby. The bamboo sheets and master bed are probably the most comfortable you have ever experienced.
The best thing about this neighborhood is that it is so close to Key West yet far enough away enjoy your boat and all the water sports. You can safely drive or ride the bikes just 4 miles to town and eat at some of the best restaurants, Café Sole, Louie's Back Yard, The Bagatelle, Abbondanza, El Siboney (Real Cuban Food and lots of it) party all night and then hit Camille's for a gourmet Breakfast, You can enjoy Sloppy Joe's for Dancing, Irish Kevin's for Jokes, and Schooners Warf for music outside on the waterfront. Less formal and where the locals hang out (more like Key West use to be) is the Hog Fish Grill on Stock Island (2 miles away). Here you can eat with the Fishermen of Stock Island. Also on Stock Island is Rusty Anchor. This is casual dining and excellent food.

VALUE: WOW… You can vacation in your own large home with your boat docked in the back yard, plenty of room to cook out, party and relax at the house for less than the price of hotel rooms!

On the water and close to town, this house is in a quiet neighborhood and offers visitors the best of Key West. Save gas stay and close to Key West. Enjoy the water and also the endless and colorful activities on Duval Street and the City of Key West.

Remember, it is the memories we make and share with others that make life worth living. Your life can be a true adventure. Reserve your time today and make Blue Waters the place you will visit year after year to make memories with your friends and family.

How are you doing on your 'bucket list'? As we should always ask ourselves… How many more years do we have to enjoy life and do what we love to do? Better 'get 'er done'!

Life happens… Make it memorable and make sure to love, and laugh often.

              Owner info

              About the owner: Jerry and Linda live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. Some say Linda married Jerry because his father had a boat. Their life has been a great adventure traveling down to the Keys since 1971 every year for Lobster season. Camping at Big Pine Key in the 70's and then renting homes in Big Coppitt, Cudjoe Key and then Key West. Because of the family's love of the Keys they finally bought a home. Even though more expensive, they invested close to Key West to enjoy the culture of the city and great access to the ocean and the gulf, but still have a short safe driving distance at the end of the night. Linda loves the Water, Art Galleries and Gardens of Key West. You will find some of her art and photos in the home. Jerry loves the fishing and diving and that the family gets together every year to experience beautiful sunsets and canoe rides through gin clear water, snorkeling for lobster, scuba diving on coral reefs and wrecks, fishing the deep blue sea, exploring for a dolphin encounter where they hitch a ride on the wake of your boat or just laying back enjoying the beaches. It is our family tradition… MAKE IT YOURS! NOTE: This year our 6 year old grandson helped catch a 27 lb Mahi, caught 7 yellowtail snapper by himself and caught his own lobster! Our 2 ½ year old grandson snorkeled with his dad. We made some great memories!

              Why the Owner Chose Stock Island:
              Over the years we have rented homes in other areas farther down the road from Key West, but we always hated that drive when we just wanted to pick up some groceries or run out for a great seafood dinner. When our kids were old enough to drive, they put hundreds of miles on our car because they wanted to go into town every day. When it was time to invest, we knew that we wanted to be a 'safe' and convenient driving distance from all the fun and activities in town. A 10 minute drive home at the end of a crazy fun evening in town is a lot better than driving 45 minutes up US1, a 2 lane road. Another huge consideration was having convenient access by boat directly to both the gulf and ocean sides of the keys. Many locations require a long boat ride to one or the other. Deep sea fishing one day and lobster hunting the next requires this easy access. The last consideration was a safe and secure neighborhood. Many times the gear required for fishing and diving is either left in the boat or drying on the dock. This most prestigious residential neighborhood offers safety and security for your family and gear.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This safe and secure residential neighborhood is where many local professionals from Key West live. They want to be close enough to easily commute to town, but yet have deep waterfront homes in a quiet neighborhood in which to raise their families. The owner of Conch Train, local restaurants, Sebago Tours, Realtors, Attorneys and Doctors all live on our streets.
