Wow! Unlimited bayfront views from the house and the heated pool. Imagine sitting in the pool with your favorite beverage and watching the sunset. Look for that green flash in the spring, summer, and fall. This home has room for the whole family or friends. It is located on a large estate lot that is situated on the corner of a natural creek and the bay. There is 300 feet of waterfront with protective dockage for your boat.
Lower Matecumbe Key is famous for its fishing, from tarpon at channel 2 , to direct bay access, minutes from the reef through channel 5, and then out to the Islamorada or Marathon humps for tuna ,dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and all the game fish. Sea Oates Beach is a quick ride or a 10 minute walk with your fly rod for bonefish.
A great attraction at the bayfront home is that you can swim or fish right from the property.
This uniquely furnished home has been decorated with true Keys flavor. It has two separate living areas each with their own full service kitchens You can have both togetherness and privacy with 2 bedroom and 2 baths upstairs and 2 bedrooms and 2 baths downstairs.
The home is close to all the conveniences you need in the keys: full service marina, restaurants, day spas, shopping, and full water sport activities. You have the opportunity to boat, fish, swim, snorkle, dive, windsail and kite sail.
Relax and Enjoy!
Keywords: Located on Lower Matecumbe Key in the Heart of Islamorada Fishing. MM74 The house is fully fenced and gated right on the Florida Bay.

Wonderful and Relaxing
Wonderful and Relaxing
Our family of 5 recently vacationed at this property and had a fabulous time. There was plenty of entertainment for everyone. And the wildlife...we saw dolphins and manatees swimming in front of the home. We even caught lobsters just off the seawall almost every night. The accommodations were clean and private. The views were spectacular. Thanks Judy!

This property if absolutely wonderful!! The view, priceless! The landscaping, gorgeous! The pool,refreshing! The fenced yard for our doggies, unheard of! We were a party of 8 adults with 2 dogs. We brought 3 boats needing at the minimum 120 foot of dockage. The boats all fit great. The house is older, but if you have rented much in the Keys, trust me this is great. There are window units, but we like that since we travel with friends & everyone likes their bedrooms at a different temperature. The downstairs kitchen is furnished just not as well as the upstairs, we cooked our meals upstairs and made our frozen drinks downstairs by the pool. We cooked every night(beef tenderloin, shrimp, lobster, fish, stone crab, chicken) except 1 night we always hit the Outback, so it is a well appointed kitchen. I saw no mold,holes in the walls, or roaches. Elaine is fabulous to work with. I've been renting houses in the Keys for 18 years & sometimes it takes days to get a response. Elaine always responded within and hour or so. Even when we were in the house & blocked the driveway so the yard crew could not get in. Elaine called them and they were back out to mow the rare grass yard in the keys. We had such a wonderful vacation in this house I would recommend it to all my friends and family!! If we had the money we would buy it in a heart beat!

The most incredible property!
The most incredible property!
I will never forget the moment we pulled into this property...the location, the views, the landscaping and the gorgeous decorations made it exceed our expectations! Our family of four (including two teenage boys) plus my mom stayed at this house during our winter break. It was the perfect set up for us. My mother had her own kitchen and bath on the first floor and we had a lovely kitchen and balcony upstairs. Plus each boy had their own room. It is uncommon to have so much property with a house in the keys. The photos don't really do it justice. It was tough to decide which lovely seating area to use for the dramatic sunsets. We had no complaints and hope to stay there again. We enjoyed kayaking to Indian Key and charter boat fishing. Love the keys and this wonderful bayfront property. Tons of great restaurants nearby too!

Positives - You will not find a more beautiful view. The yard is lush with flowers and landscaped beautifully. Sand has been hauled in to create a small beach. Kids would love it. The manatees visited us. Loved them! There is a screened in porch on the upstairs that would be great for sitting outside.The property is completely fenced and it's great for dogs. Negatives - This house is old, moldy, and mildewed. It's not just that though. It is a hazard for your health. The upstairs has been redone but since it uses window units - they should have had filters cleaned. HORRIBLE. Downstairs - The kitchen was not furnished as stated. Mold, dirt, and roaches visible everywhere. Holes in the wall. The a/c unit in the large bedroom did not work when we first arrived. After the agent's husband and brother checked it they noticed the wires were frayed. Then jiggled them and the unit came on. They said don't touch it....it's working...we'll call the electrician. The electrician never appeared. I could say more but will stop here. If you would like to see pictures I took lots. Of the good and the TERRIBLE. We were told...Welcome to the Keys...well, you can have the keys if this is what you get. I'll spend my money elsewhere. And FYI I called at the last minute willing to pay for nice...if there wasn't anything available...I should have been told there just wasn't anything... instead of just trying to make the almighty dollar.

Owner response: Hi, Yes the house is old. The house has also been cleaned, filters cleaned, plumbing fixed, electrical fixed. Problems are fixed as soon as possible when told about them. Can't beat the view, surroundings, fishing, swimming, snorkeling. Did you come to the keys to sit inside? You can see channel 2 and channel 5 from the property. Tarpon heaven. Will try to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Property Mananger
