Come by land or by sea, this resort-like setting is the perfect place and the perfect excuse to steal away with family or friends, for business or pleasure. Nestled between Islamorada, the Sport Fishing capital of the World, and Key Largo, the Diving Capital of the World, there is no better destination to unwind, play a game of ping pong rain or shine with an Ocean view, explore the salt water flats, canals and marine life in the new tandem kayak available to all guests, drop a line, or simply recline. You have direct Atlantic open water access with your boat (30ft boat max) as well as access to the Bay via very close by Tavernier creek. We are just minutes way from World Wide Sportsman, Bud N Mary's,theater of the Sea, Snappers, Holiday Isle, both Snake & Taverneir Creek and many other fine bars and restaurants.

Outfitted with a beautiful stainless steel full kitchen with abundant/nice cookware and glassware, this sprawling Ocean front home boasts of unavoidably magnificent views, three generously-sized bedrooms all with nice linens and flat screen televisions in every room, and three full baths. It also includes an office area with a fold-out futon, a printer/scanner, and high-speed wireless internet that reaches the pool, tikki hut bar and ocean. The home sleeps 8 comfortably and the interior décor is nothing short of Keys-chic, bearing light and airy textures inspired by coastal Florida living at its finest.
Our home sits on a beautiful over-sized lot with 25 palm trees. Please note that this is an important factor when spending so much time in one place with family and friends, as everyone has plenty of room to spread out/not be on top of one another. Our yard is fully enclosed/gated for the dogs, and the heated pool is fully gated as well for safety. Resign yourself to the secluded swimming pool ocean breezes, and hammock afternoons. Throw open several sets of pocket sliding glass doors along the whole back wall of the cathedral ceiling living room, and bring the 180° ocean view inside your already-open living room, complete with 50” plasma television. Relax with your morning coffee on the spacious second floor screened in lanai spanning the whole back of the house as you become mesmerized with the serenity of the 180° ocean views and breeze. Lose yourself in a book or come to write one, just plan on being spoiled by nature, and all of its tranquility.
Raise a Margarita at the tiki bar with copious seating while grilling your fresh catch at the outdoor gas grill, all overlooking the ocean. Enjoy the underwater fish lights off the dock which attract schools of fish at night. The lights are on timers, it’s pretty awesome, we hope you enjoy. Wind your way up to the roof and absorb the photographer’s panoramic view from atop the home on the unique Widow’s Walk. Kick back on an Adirondack at the dock along the 90’ of lush Atlantic coastline and watch assorted marine life frolic from the time you sip your coffee at first light until you toast a glass of wine as the sun sets. Our 90' deep water protected dock has plenty of room for your 30 ft or less boat, Jet Ski or kayak. There are tarpon, bonefish, permit, snapper, yellowtail, dolphin, sharks, manatees, turtles and other species off of our coastline. This proves heavenly for the nature lover, serious angler and the recreational fisherman alike.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are corporate folks who work hard so we can play hard. We love sunrises, fly fishing, boating, cooking, entertaining, laughter, eating, drinking and spending time with good friends and family.
Why the Owner Chose Islamorada: We fell in love at first sight with the stunning ocean views, open floor plan, new kitchen, beautiful pool, built-in grill, tiki bar and the wildlife we have seen in our very own back yard. The first time we fished from our dock we caught 8 mango snapper within the first hour. There is a sweet spot where the jetty rocks open that you cast into, and you’re likely to pull out a snapper in seconds. That same day we also saw a rolling tarpon 8 feet off our dock, an incredible experience......we knew we were home. There are large blue crab, manatees, needle fish, snapper, and parrot fish that linger at our dock, as well as larger species (sharks, dolphin, barracuda, etc..) that are always lovely to watch from our safe and protected deep water dock inside the jettie. Our Fly Fishing guide can pick us up by boat and tie right up to our very own dock as we load up to head out for the day.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our location directly on the ocean (near Tavernier Marina), is close to both Islamorada and Key Largo, which is ideal. The expansive 180 degree ocean views can be seen from every level of our home. the 10 foot pocket sliding glass windows open up the back wall of the living room to offer stunning ocean views, including the large salt water flat that is magically revealed at low tide. We have a beautifully designed open floor plan with new stainless steel kitchen and appliances and granite counter tops, private pool, large Tiki Hut/Bar with running water sink, 90 ft cement dock with protected water, spacious screened lanai, comcast on all TVs in every bedroom, Wi-Fi that reaches the pool, tiki hut and dock, plenty of outside seating, hammock, gas grill, fish cleaning station, widow’s walk on roof, ping pong table, tandem kayak, and amazing long ocean views. This is a great home for Family Vacations, Relaxing and Replenishing Gettaway, Entertaining Guests, hosting Corporate Events, Fly Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing, or just fishing from our dock. Bring your own boat or rent one.
