Escape to the Caribbean without leaving the United States. Due to our geographic location, Duck Key offers easy access to the Atlantic, Florida Bay or Gulf of Mexico. With free flowing canals, turquoise water and Venetian bridges, you will think you are in the West Indies.

Our home on Duck Key, Mile Marker 61, is located in a tropical setting with lush vegetation. The completely furnished two bedroom two bath stilt duplex will sleep six persons. There is a King bed in the master, Queen bed in the guest bedroom, and a Queen sleeper sofa in the living room. We have furnished it with all the conveniences of home. Fully equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, large over sized living room with cable TV and VCR. There is a water view from the screened porch overlooking the dock and clear deep draft wide canal.

President Truman discovered Duck Key in 1946 when he stayed here while recovering from a bad cough. During his stay each morning, he would walk the Island and commented daily on the clear turquoise waters that surround Duck Key. When you arrive on the residential Island, you will have to cross the Truman Bridge. Even now you will see people walking, jogging, biking or running through Duck Key.

Downstairs at our duplex, there is a freezer, fish cleaning table, Hot Tub, BBQ Grill, patio furniture and 40 feet of dockage for your boat. Fish off the dock, relax in the hot tub, or swim in our beautiful canal. The yard is landscaped with brick pavers and landscapelights. There is covered parking for your cars and parking for your boat trailer. We can include a fishing and sightseeing charter with your lodging.

                Absolutely awesome, beautiful home with evrything you might need and more. The best set-up in the Keys with no comparison, it was so good we stayed in the pool more than going out on the boat. We already made our reservation for next year. Owners live next door and are very friendly & helpful, this was the most relaxing vacation we have had. Hopefully all future renters are good and don't ruin a good thing for the rest of us.

                The owners have spared no expense in this property. Tasteful coastal decor abounds in this well appointed home. We had a wonderful time. The owners made us feel so welcome and comfortable - like friends. The new pool is refreshing. For the fishermen - it has it all: dock, fish cleaning station, outdoor shower, and a captain to boot (we didn't fish with Capt Lee but were envious of all his catches). You will not be disappointed.

                GREAT! Everything is new and spotless. Big comfortable rooms and beds. Even the fold out couch is comfortable. Great dock for a boat with quick access to ocean or gulf. BEAUTIFUL WARM POOL. If you want to catch fish talk to the owner. A real fishing captain with years of know how. He's available for charters on a beautiful and capable 30' boat. Specializing in light tackle I learned lots of new tricks! Great hosts who really made us all feel most welcome. Couldn't have asked for more. Maybe two months next time.

                If you are particular about where you stay then this is for you. All of the previous reviews were totally accurate.The house is clean, well equiped, and the hosts always entertaining. Lee can tell you all you need to know about the local fishing and if you want to book him for a charter do it early as he is always busy. Tom's Harbour a short walk for Happy Hour!! Life on Duck Key is just the way you expect it. Relaxing, relaxing, relaxing. Will go back again for sure.

                Have been coming to the keys for 3 years, this is the first time renting a house. There is no need to look any further. The pictures don't do the house justice. Everthing exceeded my expectations. You could not ask for better hosts than Lynn and Lee. There is nothing about the Keys they don't know and are willing to share. Lee made my boating and fishing experiance the best. They are there if you need them and will be out of the way if you don't. I am not only coming back but added another month to my stay. The house is centrally located to the entire Keys.

                We've spent numerous vacations in the Keys but this house has been by far the best. Complete kitchen - right down to the crock-pot; bathrooms with plenty of fresh and fluffy towels, bed was really comfortable and everything in the house functioned!!! The house was was very clean and well maintained. We loved the peace and quiet (24/7). Duck Key is a great place to relax, bike, jog, walk, fish, boat, read, swim........ Lynn and Lee were, no are great hosts - helped us with just about everything - even a boat tour aound the island with "insider information". Hope to spend another vacation there.

                What a wonderful vacation! Lynn and Lee are the best hosts possible. We have stayed in the Keys for 8 years and we have never stayed in a place as nicely kept as this. Lee was very helpful with fishing tips. When our boat broke down, he got in touch with his mechanic who came to us to fix it! Imagine that! Anytime you want to get away, call Lynn and Lee and book a wonderful, relaxing trip. Even "Paws" the cat warmed up to us!

                We enjoyed staying for the month of June 2010. A cool breeze always seemed to be blowing on the dock and we spent many hours out there enjoying the sun, the various fish frequently coming through the canal and the high amount of privacy the location affords. Absolutely no concerns about security. The property is just as described. Very clean and well maintained. The flowers and plants on the property are beautiful. Duck Key is convenient to many fun places in the Keys. Lynn and Lee are very helpful and made sure that there were no problems with the unit. The month was too short and we look forward to another visit. Emily & George Jackson, MS

                This unit is every bit as described, I would still be going there except for health issues. Lynn & Lee are straight forward, they take care of any problems that might arrive in a prompt manner. I also should mention the Capt. Lee is one of the finest charter captins in the Florida Keys. I fished him many time over my stay there with excellent results.

                Owner response: Tom and Helen I can't tell you how much you are missed by Lee and me. Lee is still fishing and going strong. Hopefully you two will be able to return for a visit in the near future.

                Very clean, attractive, and pleasant. Loved the screened in porch and free-flowing canal. Landscaping is lovely and attractive. Owners live adjacent and are very helpful with suggestions on where to eat (and where NOT to eat). Had a great stay! Good location in the mid-Keys. Great access to both upper and lower keys. Plus, Duck Key is 'off' the overseas highway, so nice and quiet - no traffic noise but with easy access to the highway.
