Our home is obviously equipped with a/c to keep you comfortable & cool. We have WIFI in our home so you can remain 'connected' to the world while enjoying paradise!

Adjacent to the living room is the large eat in kitchen which has updated cabinets, counters and new appliances. There is an adjacent dining room table. People always end up in the kitchen! There's lots of light and new larger windows so it's a great place to be!

The Florida Keys have some of the best fishing in the world! (Boat and trailer parking is an additional daily charge by the park.) It is also a great spot for Kayaks.

We're only 19 miles from Key West, but do not think you HAVE to go anywhere - lay by the HUGE POOL right on the OPEN WATER and watch the elegant seagulls float overhead as the palms sway. Sun yourself and read a good book and simply relax! Plunge into the BIG JACUZZI and soak your troubles away. Or spend some time with someone you love - holding hands and watching the herons fishing along the waterside! And you do not even have to get in your car to do any of these!

About Kristine Croteau-owner

I've been vising the keys for years. In 2010 while on vacation I stumbled across this property and suddenly now own a little piece of the Keys paradise!

Kristine Croteau-owner purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Kristine Croteau-owner chose Cudjoe Key

I chose to buy in the Keys as it's a beautiful relaxing location! I live in Massachusetts and LOVE to escape to the Keys!

What makes this bungalow unique

Key West is only 19 miles away so my property is a great location, you can relax here or travel for some excitement. There are some great places close by to eat, The Square Grouper, The Wharf Grill, Bookdocks, Mangrove Mama's....most look like holes in the wall that you'd never enter at home but they're great. It's all part of the unique beauty of the Keys!

Guestbook comments from the owner

in the Keys!! We saw the 0 mile marker and the souther most point. We went to Key West and explored the colorful streets. We really loved the house and hope to come back!!

Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Our rental was very clean, well equipped and newly decorated. The location was perfect when driving to the other Keys both North and South. It’s also in close proximity to several very good restaurants.

Phenomenal stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the last week of July and loved every minute of it!!!! We knew it would be hot so we planned water adventures on most every day. From jet ski's to snorkeling at Looe Key to visiting Dry Tortugas it was phenomenal. The house was in a gated community and impeccably decorated and clean. Thank you Kristine for sharing your home. We are already booked for next year. Kelly from NH
