About the Property

2 bedroom house with sailboat, kayaks, and bicycles included

Our bayfront hideaway cottages are located in the middle Keys on a small island called 'Conch Key', and offers some of the best sailing in the Gulf anywhere in the Keys. Our guests have exclusive use of 23', well maintained, ComPac sailboats, for the duration of their stay. The island is the smallest island in the Keys. It is reminiscent of a quaint Bahamian lobster fishing village, with colorful cottages nestled closely together. Rustic wharves are charmingly cluttered with lobster traps, nets, and fishing gear. There is a well kept secret that lobster and fish are both plentiful. Back country fishing and off shore sport fishing are readily available.
Our ideal location near Marathon, in the middle Keys, will allow you to visit both Key West and Key Largo, each approximately one hour away.
We have two waterfront cottages available (and one waterview). Additionally, we offer dock space with water and electricity for our guests wanting to bring their own boat for some of the best fishing in the world. Our units are impeccably clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated.
Since 1988, we have taken pride in the fact that we have the cleanest, most well-maintained accommodations in the Florida Keys!
