About the Property
2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4-5
Our home is situated about 15 miles from Key West, and features an oceanfront swimming pool and a boat launch and dock!
This is not a 'typical' vacation rental! It was originally built in 1920, but remodeled in 2003. Each cottage is beautifully decorated with unique character. They have all the modern amenities including satellite TV, microwave ovens-- and, of course blenders! Other conveniences available upon request include free use of a washer and dryer!
Tropical fruits and trees including bananas and coconuts grow throughout the property! The cottages are surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens which are beautiful places to relax and meditate and just enjoy the fragrances and color.
Each cottage has two queen-size bedrooms, and a sofa bed or daybed in the living room that converts to two very comfortable twin-size beds.
This is a great location for families! You can explore the ocean shore by kayak (it's normally very calm because of the reef - Kayaks can be rented near by rentals), fish from the dock, snorkel or dive the reef, or swim in our oceanfront pool! It's all waiting for you!
We're about halfway between Key West and the best beach in the Keys -- Bahia Honda! So whatever you might like to do is just a short distance away! Access to the 'Back Country' and the National Wildlife Refuge is right on our island. Looe Key, the best reef for snorkeling and diving, is just a few miles off our shore.
There's a full-service marina just a mile or so away, if you want to rent a boat. We also have limited dock space available on our property.
We're just minutes by boat to the best diving and snorkeling in North America! Great sport fishing, boating, sailing, and windsurfing is available right from our dock! Sightseeing and shopping in Key West is just 15 miles away.
Whether bicycling or swimming, you'll be in awe of the lush tropical gardens and exotic wildlife that surrounds you. Relax by our oceanfront pool or take a tour of the pristine wildlife preserve in the backcountry! It's a national treasure!
After another memorable day in paradise, let the tropical ocean breeze caress you as you sip an afternoon tea or other beverage in our oceanfront area.
Note: We do not provide any kayaks or snorkeling / fishing equipment. However, you can rent them from several rental places near us.
Before making a payment, always call the owner at the number listed on our website to make sure your payment instructions are accurate.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We left the corporate jungle a nearly a decade ago and searched for a great location to raise our four-year-old son. We found it here in the Florida Keys.
Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key, FL, USA:
There was only one requirement we had while searching for the right property: It had to have the 'WOW!' quality. As we walked around the property, looked out at the offshore islands from the dock, walked into the cottages, and relaxed in the pool, all we kept repeating to each other was: 'WOW!' We knew right away we had found our new home!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our property is close to Key West, but far enough away from the commotion and the noise to enjoy the real keys. The reef is less than a half-hour by boat, but if that's too far you can fish right from our dock and grill them up for an evening meal by the pool. Some beautiful offshore islands like Marvin Key are accessible by boat or even kayak! Restaurants and stores and less than a mile away. And the best swimming beach in the Keys, Bahia Honda State Park, is 20 minutes away!
