Overview

About the property

3 bdrm/3bth Gated Home on quiet street with swimming canal & room for boats

This is a beautiful Spanish style home on a clean swimming canal 9 miles from Duval Street, Key West. Our home is just 4 houses from the end of the canal and the backwaters of the Gulf. Many uninhabited islands are nearby for exploring and discovering. Fishing and Lobstering are excellent as most tourists don't find this area. In the crystal clean canal you can pick out which snapper you want to catch without leaving the back yard. Located on a quiet street, this home is close enough to town for fun, but far enough for peace and quiet.

The completely fenced home includes two entry gates and water fountain in the front. Bring your boat, or rent a boat and keep in the canal behind the house. Boat ramps are 2 miles away. Large circular driveway will accept numerous cars and/or boats and trailers.

Our home is clean and neat with wood floors in living areas, new appliances, central A/C, cable TV, wireless internet, washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen.

**We have remodeled all bathrooms October 2016**

Amenities:: Fully equipped kitchen, Cable TV, WIFI, DVD, washer/dryer, Hair Blow dryer, Iron/Ironing Board, linens, bicycles, clean swimming canal, totally fenced yard, just bring your tooth brush. Very quiet neighborhood.

Activities:: Boating, fishing, swimming canal, snorkeling, diving.

Area:: 5 miles from Key West.

About Yiliam Eldridge

I'm Cuban born and moved to Key West when I was 13. I lived in Key West until I was 26. I have fond memories of my childhood in the Keys and still have many friends there. I know almost every local resident on the island and will be happy to give advice on restaurants, fishing charters, beaches & things to do. While I now live in Miami Beach with my husband, we still visit our home whenever is it available.

Yiliam Eldridge purchased this house in 1996

Why Yiliam Eldridge chose Key West Area

This is my family home that I love and will never sell. My father bought this home after coming from Cuba, when I was a child. My husband and I enjoy updating and remodeling it every off-season, as well as just enjoying it when we can. Although I now live in Miami Beach with my husband, we love our Keys home and visit as often as possible. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

What makes our home unique is the quiet and friendly neighborhood. There are only two streets on our Key. The clear swimming canal is like a tropical aquarium with many species of colorful fish as well as good eating snapper. We've decorated our home in a comfortable Keys/Miami Modern style that is homey, clean and uncluttered.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Four members of our family stayed a week during March 2010 and had a great time. The home is everything as advertised and more. The owner was very helpful with local suggestions for activities and places to dine. The home was well stocked and maintained, I would definitely recommend to family and friends and we'll be back also. For the eldest member of the family the stairs were a bit of a challenge but she managed, we called it her physical therapy for the week.

Map

Our home is between mile marker #9 & #10, 9 miles from mile marker #0, the end of U.S.Hwy. 1 in the heart of Key West. We are about 5 miles from town, groceries, restaurants, scooter rentals, Kmart, etc, 5 miles to beaches, 3 miles to the golf course, 2 miles to boat ramps, 1/4 mile to a large convenience store/gas station, and 1/8 mile to Bobalu's Southern Cafe for great fish, barbecue, pizza, etc. We are close enough to Key West to get where the action is in 10 minutes, and far enough away for peace and quiet. Our canal is great for floating on a raft, diving off the sea wall, swimming and fishing. Enjoy the hammock under the coconut palms by the clean canal while watching the parrot fish swim by, or wait for a nice snapper to bend your fishing pole without leaving the yard.

Golf: Golf course is 5 miles away.

Nice quiet home with an awesome canal in back.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The property is a bit out of Key West so we enjoyed quiet evenings but close enough to easily do all the Key West stuff. The owner was very helpful. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is a minor issue with the hardwood floor that could be a tripping issue for older folks (my 77 year old mother almost fell over a slight rise/bubble in the living room floor).

BTW, the canal is like having an aquarium in the backyard and we caught lots of fish there.

Also, if you are bringing your boat it is a difficult entry to the canal. Study your charts carefully and approach on a high but falling tide (at least the first time). Better yet, ask the friendly neighbors to the north for their son to go with you the first time (maybe give him a few $). I didn't do either and ran my boat aground the first time. After the first time it is no big deal though.

Again, nice place and our family had a great time!

This house is setup nice for vacations. On a canal for boats just have to watch tides in a and out. We had a blast able to access deep water fishing in 15 minutes.

Wonderful Home - Good location

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying at this home. It was comfortably furnished in a decent neighborhood. It was 9 miles from old Key West which was perfect for us since we wanted a property that got us away from the Key West nightlife. The house sits on a channel and we enjoyed catching fish that were constantly hungry. The only downside to the fishing is that we couldn't keep any since they were too small. If pets were welcome, I would have rated it 5 stars.

GReat Vacation home!

We spent 5 days at this beautiful house and would absolutely stay here again! Beautiful home, perfect location (far enough to enjoy the relaxation but close enough to enjoy the restaurants, activities, and night life).

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days in this lovely house that is more than fully equipped. Nice living, good beds and big kitchen, and a lovely garden outside. We swam in the canal, saw fishes and lizards. It's a great location to explore Key West. We went to the beaches, to the town of Key West and took bicycles to explore the Island. We rented 4 bicycles at 5160 US1 for only 10 $ a day at We cycle/ New Town. Go there by car, parking is free. The owners of 12 Calle Dos respond quickly and supplied a lot of information. The house is highly recommended.
