Summerland Key house description

Our beach house is an open floor plan with postcard Atlantic Ocean views from every room. Off the main living area are two bedrooms with queen size beds and 1 bathroom (there is also an ocean front enclosed outside shower at ground level). Tile floors, central air and ceiling fans throughout. The house is situated on a 55' wide pebble beach which leads into the ocean and Niles Channel, directly across from Little Palm Island. The side door of the elevated house extends onto an outside deck off the living room. The sunrises are spectacular. The views of the open ocean are mesmerizing. Offered with the house is a 60' wide canal, located behind the house, with instantaneous direct deep ocean access from protected dockage. Our seawall can easily accommodate up to a 30’ boat and is equipped with a fish cleaning station, electric and water.

              Car: Recommended

              The Key-ver beach house is 1 ½ miles from the Overseas Highway, on the southernmost end of Summerland Key! Summerland Key begins at mile marker 25, in the Lower Keys. It is close enough to enjoy the historic, island city of Key West yet it is a truly peaceful piece of paradise where you can hear the lapping water, rustling palm fronds and gentle sounds of birds. It is five miles to Big Pine shopping. Restaurants, seafood markets and entertainment, are nearby; Little Palm Island (an exclusive resort) is a short boat ride to a five star lunch or dinner. The ocean is your frontyard. We are among the closest homes to great snorkeling and diving, at Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary, our coral reef, which is a 3 mile trip off shore from your door. Bring your boat or rent one and dock in our protected canal located behind the house (the canal is featured in pictures 21 and 22). Bahia Honda is a short drive and rated one of the top ten beaches in Florida. There are many fun and educational points of interest close by, our house is a very cool place to experience island living at its very best.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Bud and Grace have been married for 29 years. We share the love of water sports and the ocean with each other and our 3 children. All 5 of us are divers and avid boaters. Our favorite vacation destination was the lower keys until we moved to Summerland, ten years ago. We love the location, its neighborhood and access to blue water so much that we recently purchased the ocean front beach house. We look forward to sharing this vacation destination and the beauty of the lower keys with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Summerland Key:
              Our ocean front beach house is one of the very few homes that have an ocean front beach and protected dockage on a seawall in a wide and deep water canal with instantanious direct ocean access. The southernmost end of Summerland is a special place; its open space is filled with palm trees, tropical gardens, naturally occurring plants, birds and other wildlife that share the island with those fortunate enough to find and take the time to enjoy it. Whether by land or by sea, there is plenty to do. We hope that you will enjoy our beach house on Summerland Key and experience island living and all that the lower keys have to offer.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The ocean view from every room in the house is spectacular. We have been told by several guests that pictures do not do justice to the panoramic view the Key-ver ocean front beach house offers. Very few homes have the ocean in the front yard and a protected canal behind the house, but this one does. The neighborhood is quiet, it is a mile and a half from the overseas highway, off the beaten trail. Summerland Key is close enough to Key West to make daily or nightly trips, but far enough away to enjoy the island breeze, hear fish jump, watch the ever changing ocean, or observe shooting stars and the milky way in the night sky.
