About the Property

1 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 2.

Eagle's Nest, a unique rental for single vacationers or a pair of traveling companions. Upper level, ocean view master suite is a private designer ‘studio’ apartment (king bed/ full bath/kitchenette w/microwave/coffee/minifrig) with huge wrap-around private observation deck. Glass block & flanking sliding glass doors flood the apartment with natural light. Private entrance via a majestic spiral staircase. On a quiet dead end road bordered by mangrove and hardwood hammocks. Year-round ocean breezes make the deck a great spot to stretch out on the chaise lounge or hammock and snooze, sun or just read a good book..so spacious, I did my morning jog on it! At night, star gazing is amazing with no city lights and only the sounds of wildlife in the neighboring wetlands. Throughout the year, our ocean canal features giant tarpon, manatees and even dolphin. Just below Key Largo and above Islamorda, we offer easy access to both tropical isles yet maintain a private, small town atmosphere overlooking the turquoise Atlantic waters.
