Beautiful Peaceful Home with Dockage

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths, (sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful home on deep water canal with dockage. Located in a quiet neighborhood. It has a 60 foot cement dock with a fish cleaning table and outdoor shower head. Upon exiting the canal there is a great bay area for wake boarding, skiing, tubing etc. Snake creek and Tavernier creek are just minutes away and easy access to the ocean and some of the best fishing in the world.

Our home is perfectly located in the keys. Nearby is a shopping center and movie theater. Founders park is just minutes away where you can enjoy an olympic size pool, basketball, tennis, baseball, soccer, playground, dog-park, skateboarding ramps, and a beach. World famous John Pennekamp is the next key north in key largo (approximately ten miles). Key west would make an excellent day trip (89 miles south). Dive shops and boat rentals are just minutes away. Excellent dining as well as delicious local eateries surround us.

Take a short walk, or boat ride down the canal and experience the spectacular Florida keys sunsets, or just sit on the patio with your favorite drink and watch the colors melt across the sky.

Looking forward to serving you.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six just returned from a beautiful week long vacation in the keys. We visited a few tourist places in the keys and the Everglades, but Maryln's house was the highlight of our trip. It is located right on the canal that leads to mangrove channels. We had so much fun kayaking and watching all kinds of fish swim in the water everyday. Manatees came to visit us in the backyard a few times. The house was clean and beautiful, with everything we needed. Maryln was very responsive and provided great tips on things to do in the area. Can't ask for more. Thank you, Maryln!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review. Yes, I seldom talk about the manatee's just incase they don't show up but they show up more than not. So happy they came to visit. And of course, kayaking in the area is exciting yet peaceful and beautiful. So happy you were able to experience some of my very favorite aspects of the Keys. Our doors are open should you ever desire to return. Best Wishes, Maryln

Great location ! Close to Islamaroda and Key Largo.

  • 5 of 5

Nice house with everything you need. Great for boaters with easy access to open water on Fla Bay and a quick ride to the Atlantic. The Manatee's in the canal were there every day to say hello. Was nice to be able to park my boat trailer in the yard at the house.

Our doors are open for you in the future. Regards, Maryln

Lovely, fully-equipped home—wonderful view from the 2nd floor screened deck!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this Islamorada home. Everything we needed was there and Maryln provided very helpful information about the area, including the best restaurants and where to rent a kayak for the week (which was delivered and dropped right into the canal in front of the home)! Our hosts were easy to reach with any question. We would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to enjoy the Keys!
