Property description

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.

We also own another ocean front 5 bedroom home in the Florida Keys ( www.vrbo.com/430783 )

Kindly Yours,

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Our entire family is close and we enjoy spending our time together. This house provides us with plenty of space and is perfect big dinners and great conversation and lots of fun. We also have a ski home in Big Sky, MT (VRBO 304457) if you would like to read reviews from our other renters.

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.
