Our vacation home in the Lower Keys awaits your arrival! Though Irma hit Cudjoe Key quite hard, our home and Venture Out are in excellent condition for your Keys vacation. We live here during the winter so April 2018 is the first availability. The gated, resort community of Venture Out has all of the amenities that you could want for a holiday getaway. Lounge by, and swim in the heated pool or salt water canal. Play pool, ping pong, tennis or pickle ball with family and friends. Gather together a group for a game of bocce. Forgot a "good read"? No worries - we have a well-stocked library. There's a playground as well as a kiddie pool for the little ones in the family. Three adult bikes are provided, with miles of bike paths along the Overseas Hwy. An easy bike to Mangrove Mamas for bloodies and brunch or to The Square Grouper for a delicious meal & nightly entertainment. Venture Out is located at MM 23 so if the hubbub, nightlife, and shopping of Key West is your pleasure, you will not have far to drive. Our house is maintained, not as a rental, but as our home, since we do live here during the winter. We have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and are situated on a 60' canal. You can park your boat at our 35' seawall for easy access to fishing, boating, and sunset sails. The dock is complete with cleats, bumpers, fish cleaning table and swim ladder. You will have access to our store room with a new bait freezer and area to keep dive and fishing gear. There are 2 covered decks - one facing the street and one facing the water. There is additional seating under the home facing the canal. On the water front you will have outdoor seating on both the upper and lower decks with a new gas grill. Our kitchen is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need for a home cooked meal. There are smart TVs in both bedrooms and the living room. WIFI and landline from which to call the USA, Mexico and Canada is provided free of charge. The home sleeps 6 (maximum allowed per Venture Out rules) with a king bed, queen bed and brand new queen sleeper sofa. We speak French and English. Please no pets or smoking allowed. There is a 3 night minimum stay except during Lobster Season which requires a 7 night minimum. Rates are as follows:
12.5% tax (5% lodging tax and 7.5% county sales tax), $100 cleaning fee, $45 booking fee, $100 refundable security deposit and a non-refundable $45 accidental damage fee. The Venture Out fee, paid at the gate upon arrival, is $53.75 and must be paid by check or cash. One vehicle is allowed to park at the home (NO exceptions). There are additional fees for parking an extra car, boat, trailer, etc, but no guarantee for a place to park. All final reservations will be handled by our on-site agent. Please contact me with any questions you may have.

About Shelly McCune
We fell in love with the Keys, but especially Venture Out, after our first stay here in 2012. After renting for a few years, we decided this would always be where we would escape to, from our Minnesota winters, so we decided to buy. Pete speaks fluent French.
Shelly McCune purchased this House in 2016
Why Shelly McCune chose Cudjoe Key
We wanted to be in Venture Out, because of the friendly people and in this safe comfortable gated community. This home faced the right direction to avoid the hot afternoon sun for our evening happy hour. We love to have company during the winter, and the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms affords enough space to entertain guests for a week or two.
What makes this House unique
Walking distance to the pool, tennis, pickle ball and Rec Center. We feel safe at all times.

ReviewsThis property doesn't have any reviews yet.
The following are places we always recommend to our first time guests to the Lower Keys: Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key, Turtle Hospital on Marathon, viewing Key Deer on No Name Key, beautiful Bahia Honda State Park, kayaking, Civil War fort at Zachary Taylor State Park in Key West, Dry Tortugas, Pigeon Key, & the Big Pine Key Flea Market, snorkeling on Looe Key, & parasailing in Key West. Other top attractions in Key West include the Hemingway House, Butterfly Conservatory, Conch Train Tour, and a romantic dinner at Sunset Key. There are so many many things to do near us, that it would take 3 weeks to do it all. We are happy to give you more suggestions based on what your interests are...if this is a romantic getaway or a family vacation with the kids.
