Full kitchen, laundry, walk out on our private sandy beach about 200 steps. Swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Flora and fauna abound. This is a ground floor residence that is 2,500 sq.' home. Lots of room to relax and enjoy. We have cable on request but you must order through us so it's turned on and ready for you when you arrive. The guest rooms are a little larger than a typical guest room and the master suite is expansive with a private sitting area. The waterfront is open to our family and a few guests. We're part of the Marine Sanctuary so there's no fishing on the estate. However we do have guides that will come directly to our water front and there's fishing about 2 mins away.
We are a family that's resided in the Rock Harbor area since 1969. We adore our beautiful Florida Keys. We've had businesses and are now raising the 3rd generation here. If there's anything I can help you with PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE for 1 moment to ask. I know some sweet amazing out of the way places that some locals don't know & I'm happy to oblige. Oh there is 1 question everyone asks. 'May we fish from the dock?' We respectfully reply No please. Our bay is considered one of the cleanest and most lush with fish and beauty and is part of the Florida Bay Sanctuary. So please we ask you to respect this. Also if you'd like a coconut, pineapple or Key limes please ask us for assistance. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration to the beauty of our property....moreless
