Property description

Looking for the Tommy Bahama lifestyle? Come enjoy the best boating in the Keys from your own private deep water dock!

Incredible view of Tavernier Key from this exclusive oceanfront retreat! Imagine....deep-water, ocean access just footsteps from your vacation in PARADISE!

Watch the sunrise from the wrought iron bed without venturing outside. Lounge in the hammock or relax in the expansive private verandah. Two minutes from movies, gym, shopping, restaurants, supermarket and hospital - can it get any better than this?

Interior rooms are tastefully decorated with tropical, neutral tones. The expansive floor plan of the great room makes gatherings super easy as the kitchen is integrated with dining and gathering spaces. Bare foot elegance is the term which comes to mind with this spacious 1 floor, all tile beauty!

The Upper Keys are the IDEAL spot for you to enjoy all that the Keys has to offer. The fishing and diving are second to none and numerous amenities await you. From here, you can take a day trip to Key West or explore the Everglades. But WAIT - once you arrive, you may just catch 'Keys Disease' and just opt to chill in the hammock! The choice is yours!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We live and work in sunny South Florida year round. We have 4 lovely children and a crazy dog we call Luna. We like to spend our free time with family and friends. We manage two rental properties now and are always planning the next upgrade here or there. I love all the fascinating people we meet through our rental experience. We'd love to host your stay soon!

Why the Owner Chose Tavernier:
We were first drawn to the keys for the scuba diving and snorkeling. We were so lucky to have found our little piece of paradise and we hope you enjoy it as well. When I'm in the hammock, I feel that there truly is no better place on earth to get away from it all!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The upper keys have everything you could ever want for your stay! The best dive sites are here and the fishing is amazing! If you have kids, there is a cinema nearby and lots of nice quiet waters for boating and kayaking. Not far down either - fly into Miami or Ft. Lauderdale and your drive is a very short and scenic one indeed. You can easily make a day trip to Key West to have a chance to see all of the keys during your visit. After a stay with us, you will want to return again and again to experience the true luxury of a private oceanfront home.
