There is a public boat launch around the corner, and you can keep your boat docked outside the backyard in the salt-water, tidal, ocean access canal behind the house. Bring your own boat bumpers for the concrete sea wall. There are cleats for tying off mounted to the seawall.

About Chris Rice

We recently inherited this home, and have decided to put it up for rent to allow other to enjoy our little piece of paradise. We have renovated the kitchen and terrazzo floors, and this cozy Key West home offers the luxury of having an ocean access canal out back, with plenty of room to dock a 25' boat, at t reasonable price, especially for Key West!

Chris Rice purchased this house in 1967

Why Chris Rice chose New Town

It's located in New Town in Key West on an ocean access canal - not that many of these at this price!

What makes this house unique

Designated parking (driveway and along street front), ocean access canal, completely furnished (except your food), comfortable beds! Additional parking for your 9' wide trailer alongside between the driveway and the fence (see photo) There is a paddle boat and a kayak that can be used in the canal out back - explore the canals and salt flat marsh off Riviera canal.

Great Stay, Great Outings

  • 5 of 5

What a great several days away. We went out on the water. And our boat was at the dock right at the house! So convenient. Everything was close to get to. We drove but next time I might ride a bike just to try it. We went to the Hogfish Grill which was tasty and Sunset for street entertainment. Plus we caught lobsters! Definitely coming back and staying here.

Owner's Response: Dear Michael - We're so glad you enjoyed the time you spent at our Key West house! It's hard to beat having the boat at your back door, ready to head out on the water. We're glad you were able to take advantage of the water with your boat. Next time you'll definitely have to bike to downtown, and don't forget to try the paddleboat and kayak we have at the house. We hope to have you here again soon in Key West, at the southernmost point! Best Regards, Chris
