Conch Key house description

Licensed Tourist Rental. Original Conch House, beautifully decorated with wood paneling and wood floors, comfortable furniture, sitting area in large master bedroom with queen bed, 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds and 3rd bedroom in small cottage off rear deck with 1 twin bed. There are 2 full baths with plenty of towels, a fully equipted new kitchen, comfortable seating for 6 on canal side covered porch, TiKi dining area off rear deck with Weber Grille, central a/c and heat, WiFi throughout property, cable TV in living room and 2 bedrooms, plus an I Phone dock. Plenty of parking for your cars and boat in our gated private compound. We are a NO SMOKING and PET FRIENDLY facility.

FORGET ABOUT 'WAKE SPEED ONLY'!! IMMEDIATE ACCESS to BACKCOUNTRY and 8 Minutes under the Long Key Viaduct to the Ocean. Leave from our 65 foot dock and boat basin to experience great fishing, diving and swimming in the Ocean or Florida Bay.

Our rates are moderate, in season and out.

Located at Mile Marker 63, in the middle of the Keys. Conch Key is a perfect little island, artfully placed between the Gulf and the Ocean. Great fishing and lobstering. Watch the local working fishermen from the comfort of our back porch. Click on link to Google Maps below to locate us.

World Famous Dolphin Research Center is 2 miles south on Grassy Key. Feed the dolphins.

This fully equipped, private Conch House is situated on tiny Conch Key at the southwesterly foot of the Long Key Bridge, Mile Post 63, bay side. You will enjoy direct views of unbelieveable sunsets from our dock, deck, porch, and roof-top deck. And great boating and fishing from our 65 foot long dock and boat basin.

Fishing, lobstering and crabbing opportunities are truly excellent. From our 65-foot dock you will have direct access to the Gulf (Florida Bay) and a vast array of flats and shoals and channels. Proceeding easterly, a five-minute ride in your boat will take you under the Long Key Bridge and into the Atlantic Ocean. The reef is just five-and-one-half miles away.

Rental boats are available and can be delivered to our dock for your convenience. Our Boat Basin and 65 foot dock available for your boat, if you choose to bring it.

The Hawks' Cay Resort, with its fine marina, charter boats, para sailing, restaurants, and other activities is 5 minutes away.

Great Beaches in Marathon (Sombrero Beach) and Bahia Honda State Park- mile marker 38. Don't miss the 1 mile nature walk at Long Key State Park, just 6 miles N/E on the Overseas Highway- great picnicing as well.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: This is Lacey Bird looking for local fish, waiting on the back deck.

                      Why the Owner Chose Conch Key:
                      Conch Key is a unique island. It is the last of the Keys Fishing Villages and still is active. Lobstmen and Fishermen motor in and out of our canal, on their way to the Florida Bay and Ocean. You can sit on the canal side porch and watch them, while sharing your favorite drink with family and friends. A Great White Heron may join you as they wait for scraps from the fishermen. The sunsets are unbelievable and the lifestyle is easy. Escape your everyday life and enjoy a relaxing vacation with fantastic fishing, boating and great restaurants.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Great family vacation house with quick, easy access to the Atlantic Ocean and the Florida Bay. The Conch House is a private single family gated compound, with 65 feet of dock and a boat basin, plus ample parking for your boat and trailer. We have wonderful sunsets and interesting views of the local fishermen traveling in and out of the canal from our 65 foot dock.
