About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Three roads branching off of Rte 1, Overseas Highway, converge at a bayside shore to create a pristine neighborhood that has a blend of Old and New Key Largo. Just 5 miles south of the busy center of Key Largo, these three roads make up the Bay Harbor Neighborhood that has a blend of Conch Houses and extravagant waterfront properties in a peaceful, bayside setting. Preserved lots that contain the unique flora and fauna of the Keys are speckled between each home, creating privacy.

This remodeled 1958 Conch House is on North Bay Harbor Drive and has the Charm of Old Cape Cod with the beauty of Key Largo Sunsets. The pastel colored rooms are decorated with modern furnishings that are conducive to lounging and relaxing. A pit sofa converts into a comfortable pull out bed for unexpected guests. The twin beds come together for a king bed if needed.

The house has a secluded, fenced back yard with tropical surroundings. It features an enclosed hot and cold outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off after the beach or enjoying a relaxing hot shower under the trees or stars. An outdoor covered patio is the perfect spot for dining al fresco after cooking fresh fish on the grill. Located just 100 yards from our bayside beach, the house sits back from the street. The Private Homeowners Park, usually uninhabited, has a white sandy beach, with breathtaking sunsets, and a picnic area. Great cove for Kayaking!

It is an easy, picturesque, 1 hr. drive from Miami Airport using the Florida Turnpike to Florida City. Enter the Keys through the mangrove tree lined 'Stretch' of US 1. The scenic bridge gives way to a panoramic view of the mainland, Everglades National Park and the small developing Keys. You are now entering the first and largest Key in the chain of islands that extend for over a hundred miles, connected by bridges and narrow strips of land. Our house is just 10 minutes south of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park MM102, major grocery stores and outlets. Day trips to Marathon and Key West, two of the larger Keys, with stops along the way at artisan villages and quaint restaurants, flea markets and shops make Key Largo a prime place to vacation. Head south to feed the Tarpon at 'Robbie's' MM77.5 or take a boat tour to Lignumvitae, a historic State Park with nature trails. Keep going to MM61, Hawk's Cay Resort on Duck Key to feed the Dolphin. On the way home, stop at 'Lorelei' MM 81 for a fish sandwich, or MM88 for music and sunset. Finer dining is available at The Lazy Lobster's back yard, seven miles north of our house, or head north to MM103 to Sundowners where you can dine on the beach and watch the sun retire.

Great place for a small family getaway or winter reprieve!

Little Blue

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was the most relaxing, enjoying vacation we have taken in years. The house was better than the pictures showed. Clean well stocked for anything you may want to do from swimming, kayaking, biking, games or just relaxing. The backyard is fenced in so we were able to bring our two dogs. They just loved the freedom to run and play with each other. My husband used the outdoor shower to take the majority of his showers. The beach was perfect, beautiful and we were able to meet some of the full time residents. Very friendly neighborhood. We really would have loved to stay longer. Thank you Deb!

We enjoyed our stay here. The house was very clean, comfortable and the neighborhood was very quiet. It was a short walk to the private beach and a public boat ramp was one street over that was perfect for my jet skis. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away to the keys. The property is as advertised.

Beautiful Little Blue

  • 4 of 5

We loved our March break getaway to the little blue cottage in Key Largo. This property is very well taken care of, neat and clean, and exactly as the pictures describe. The cottage is located in a fairly quiet community and it is pleasant, short walk to the small private beach. It is not far off the highway, so restaurants, groceries and marinas are readily accessible after a short drive. Snappers Restaurant the first night was a welcome introduction to the island life and the drive to Key West during the week was absolutely beautiful. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

Perfect Retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect for a family of four or two couples. It is very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked for cooking/grilling with condiments and seasonings. The beds were comfortable and there was ample closet space. The backyard and outside patio is awesome -- very relaxing and comfortable. The outdoor shower is a plus. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors we met were friendly and helpful. The private beach is just down the street. It is a very nice beach with both ample amounts of sun and shade. We left wishing we had planned a longer stay. Will definitely rent here again. If you are looking for a recommendation for dinner, we tried Taster's Grill in the Win Dixie shopping plaza south of the property and it was excellent -- highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Hey Deena. So glad you guys enjoyed my little piece of paradise. Must try Tasters sometime. I usually don't get out of the back yard when I'm there if the fishing was good that day. You all should come for lobster season. Not lobsta, but delicious on the grill!!! Thanks for the nice review on VRBO. Deb

Great location for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a one week stay at this home. It was a good fit for our family of four. The private beach is totally relaxing and a very short walk from the home. Overall, the home is in a quiet location and is well kept. We would love to return to this home for another vacation.

I just spent 4 days at this "Little Blue" adorable house, and came home recharged and relaxed.

I have rented apts. and homes worldwide using VRBO and love the experience so much more than staying at a Hotel.

A lot of times it takes me awhile to get settled into a new place..sometimes there is an 'ew factor' attached(weird smell of the place..location) but IMMEDIATLY upon opening the door to this immacualte house,I felt a sense of peace and comfort...and safety.

There is everything you need for your stay.The kitchen has everything you need..and more...(even beautiful serving plates).there are even chairs and coolers for the beach.EVERYTHING you would need to make your stay enjoyable,

It's clean and bright and so comfortable..BIg screen TV..fabulous private backyard w/ tiki torches and lounge chairs and a grill.

FABULOUS restaurants so close by..very convienient to shops...and the private beach just 3 houses down the road.

You MUST stop by Harriet's a great breakfast place for Key lime muffins(worth the whole trip!).

Location is is CLEAN and comfortable...sunsets are amazing!!

If you need a get away..this is the place!!
