New to VRBO in May, this house is in a great location in Venture Out, Unit #465. Much of the house has been updated with fresh paint and all new family room furniture, including a very comfortable leather couch and small size leather recliner. There's also a new flat screen tv in the family room and flat screen tvs in each bedroom. Cable with an upgraded channel package and WIFI are included. We've added a good bit of new bedding, including pillows/sheets/mattress pads. A new refrigerator and new air conditioner were both installed in 2013. And a new dishwasher was just installed. The home is a two bedroom, two full baths cottage - perfect for up to four people. It's on a wide deep water canal with a 35’ dock and an open water view. And only six houses from that open water! You'll be a short boat ride away from Looe Key, American Shoal, the Adolphus Busch, Little Palm Island , and the beautiful back country. And the nice thing about this area of the Keys is there's much less boat traffic than the middle and upper Keys.
The house is a charming and happy place. It has true Keys character, as it was originally decorated by a spirited artist and an array of tropical colors abounds throughout. You'll feel like you're on a vacation in the Caribbean even if it's raining! The kitchen comes fully stocked with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal. You'll be impressed! There are plenty of quality linens and towels for a comfortable stay. Rattan ceiling fans are in every room and the floor is completely tiled throughout. Also a new bait freezer has been installed under the deck.
The 35' seawall has a swim ladder, dock posts, cleats, fish cleaning station, and a concrete picnic table. The covered deck has a view of the ocean and two picturesque canals. You get to see the sunrise on your left and the sunset on your right! An electric grill is provided. Two bikes come with the unit, as well as a dock box containing swim noodles, snorkel equipment and a few tennis rackets.
Please note that there is an entry fee for our gated community that you will have to pay at the front gate. This gives you FULL access to all of the resort’s amenities. The resort amenities include: 24 hour security, lighted tennis courts, Olympic-sized heated pool (the cleanest pool I've ever seen!) kiddie pool, spa Jacuzzi, ping pong, bocce ball courts, shuffleboard courts, golf putting area, lighted basketball court, children's playground, pool table, darts, marina complete with two boat ramps, a free pressure washer, gas, store, ATM and fish cleaning station, open water picnic areas, ocean front tiki hut, lending library, post office - and MORE - all in a wonderfully managed community where you can feel safe and secure.
There is no charge for launching your boat at the Venture Out Marina. It's also a great spot for kayaks. You can swim or fish from the open water areas. And there is a big TIKI HUT on the open water where picnicking is perfect.
Within several minutes there are some great restaurants. A couple of our favorites are the Square Grouper and Kaya Eats for fabulous gourmet/foodie meals and Boondocks for a more casual, open air atmosphere with tons of flat screen tvs for watching your favorite sports teams. Boondocks also has a mini golf course for added fun. And of course, Key West is only 20 minutes away for first class shopping and dining.
The Marina Store within walking distance in the resort stocks many necessities, such as soft drinks, beer, and wine.
SORRY, THIS IS A NO SMOKING / NO PET HOUSE.
