Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to the fabulous Florida Keys, where the good times await! As you drive south, the world you leave behind fades in the distance, and your tropical island paradise lies just ahead. My goal is to provide you with a secluded and private resort to unwind and build wonderful memories with friends and family.

Enjoy the serene bay with easy ocean access via Tavernier Creek. The 60 foot dock and long-sloping concrete ramp will make boating, fishing and water sports easy. Paddle out in the three sea kayaks to see wildlife, swim with the manatees and spot the occasional dolphin.

Cool off in the sparkling blue salt swimming pool with ample seating and children’s sun-shelf area; then rinse off in the warm outdoor shower.

The home is completely remodeled with high-end furniture and electronics. On the main floor you’ll find plenty of room for entertaining. The screened-in terrace has fans, a day bed for napping and a teak dining table for eight - perfect for brunch! A large, fully equipped chef’s kitchen with gas range and a BBQ, and an additional first floor wet bar helps keep the beer and frozen drinks flowing! There are three HDTVs with DirecTV and a surround sound home theatre so you’ll never miss the big game. Four outdoor hifi speakers, a PS3, Wii, table tennis and darts round out the entertainment extras.

When it’s finally time to turn in, go directly to the dedicated, private third floor master suite with king size Sterns and Foster bed and marble bath. There’s also a second floor suite with king size bed and semi-private bath. Leave the first floor to the rest of the group, where they will find three bedrooms with queen size beds and one bathroom. There’s plenty of room for everyone!

Please note that you will be asked to enter into a 29 night or longer rental agreement, regardless of actual length of stay. This is due to local ordinance, and we will be happy to explain before renting. Strong preference will be given to month-long rental requests. Please check the calendar before inquiring, and if possible plan your stay months in advance for best availability and rates. Please provide as much detail about your desired stay and the party you will be travelling with as possible.

About Jean-Louis Sorondo

I live in New York City and get down to the keys whenever I can to get out of the cold and unwind in paradise. The rest of the time it's yours!

Jean-Louis Sorondo purchased this house in 2009

Why Jean-Louis Sorondo chose Sunshine Estates

Plantation Key is a wonderful location, close to everything great about the Florida Keys. It's also a very reasonable drive to Miami International Airport. The neighborhood itself is great because it is right next to Tavernier Creek for easy ocean access. Also, the area's largest shopping center and nearest hospital are less than a mile away.

What makes this house unique

The layout of the home really allows everyone to spread out for privacy and comfort. Guests in the house are rarely on the same schedule; some are up at the crack of dawn to fish, while others prefer to stay up late and sleep in. The entire 3rd floor is dedicated to a very private master suite, so you will never be inconvenienced. Although the smell of bacon cooking in the morning can be very enticing!

Great Getaway HQ

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been making an annual pilgrimage to the Keys for well over a decade now and each year or two we look to upgrade the experience. This year's trip set the new standard and we are already looking forward to returning next year. The house is conveniently located to our favorite fishing and diving spots as well as quick access to groceries and restaurants. All of the home amenities made it easy to enjoy kicking back and relaxing. The house is in great shape, comfortable, clean and well maintained as the pictures depict. The owner is very reasonable in addressing requests and responding to our questions. Its a great place to getaway and we highly recommend it. Thanks to J-L for sharing his piece of paradise, we will be back!

Paradise in the Florida Keys

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just recently stayed in this home in "paradise" as we refer to it for a month. Our stay was absolutly perfect! The home was represented very well. The interior and exterior of the home are in immaculate conditions with very modern details and is well maintained. The photos do not do this home justice. The home is 10 times better than the pictures lead. There is plenty of space for a family vacation giving everyone privacy. The canal setting is perfect for boaters, sun lovers and manatee fans. We spent much of our time enjoying the very well maintained pool area and lounging on the canal dock. This home is in a great location with many resteraunts near, by boat or by car, Shops and grocery stores are within just a mile or two as well. It is also an easy drive from Ft. Lauderdale and Miami airports. We would recomend this home to all of our family and friends and to anyone interested in an amazing vacation. We are so excited about this house in "paradise" that within a week of returning home we had already booked again for 2012! We have rented homes on VRBO for a number of years and this is our favorite so far!

Excellent is an understatement!

This house is PARADISE!

It has everything you need to make your vacation the best ever. John has made sure that no detail has gone unnoticed.

The house itself is immaculate....great amenities, very modern furniture and appliances, spacious, and the screened-in porch is so relaxing!

The kayaks provide hundreds of vacation memories, from sunsets over the ocean to floating with the manatees.

Wonderful location- great day trip to Key West, right down the street from groceries and restaurants, beach, and fishing!

Can't wait to get back. Thank you John for making our vacation one to remember!

Amazing house in the keys!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends all stayed at the house. We had kids in ages 10 - 2 who all did not want to leave. The dock is great for fishing off of and the just relaxing. We used the kayaks everyday and even saw a manatee while out. The house is absolutely beautiful with everything you could need. We cooked and grilled every night in the beautiful kitchen. Thank you so very much for a great stay. We cant wait to come back again.

Magical Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the house and loved every moment of our stay. Particularly enjoyable were the kayaks from which we saw many manatees. Also enjoyed relaxing on the screened-in porch. Fixed several memorable dinners in the wonderful kitchen. Our family truly loved spending time in such a beautiful setting.
