Imagine a Perfect Sunset with Porpoises Swimming on the Horizon - This is Key Largo at its Very Best
Enjoy our newly remodeled and gated – 5 bedroom, 4 bath house directly on the bay. We call our house CASA de IVY. The house features an infinity pool, large sandy beach, and a newly constructed dock.
CASA de IVY is decorated in a West Indies décor, with dark hardwood floors and red and yellow accents throughout the house. The kitchen is on the 2nd floor and features a large center island which seats 10. Just outside the kitchen is a 1200 sq ft covered lanai with travertine tile. From the lanai and every one our 6 French doors is an unobstructed view of the bay. In fact, the house is secluded with no bayside neighbors – giving you a feeling that you are one with the ocean. For those, that need to be connected, CASA de IVY has high speed WIFI internet, and every room has a flat screen TV. The home sleeps 12 – master with a king, 3 bedrooms with queens, and a bunkroom with 4 bunks.
I am not kidding when I say you could see anything from a pod of 100 juvenile porpoises, to a family of manatees, to parrots and egrets right off the dock. The dock has 6 ft of control depth and plenty of room for up to a 45 ft yacht. Electric and water are both available on dock. Pennekamp offers some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world, and is only a 15 minute boat ride away. If water skiing and tubing is your thing – Blackwater sound is the calmest water you could find in the Keys, and this is off our white sandy beach. And if sipping wine and drinking margaritas works – well, it’s all there.
It’s a perfect size home for 2 families. Our home books quickly, so please email for best availability and for more information.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: The location is perfect. It directly faces west on the bay - so you get perfect sunsets all year long. There are no neighbors, and the piece of property is almost an acre. We fell in love with property and after 9 months of renovations - we now have one of the best homes in Key Largo.
The Unique Benefits at this House: New kitchen, new dock, new pool, new bathrooms, new foyer, new garage - even new wiring. The house is now awesome.
