This great family vacation spot near Key West is in the Florida Keys! Stay in this charming two-bedroom 'Conch Cottage' on a one- acre oceanfront property, surrounded by lush tropical gardens!
Our home is situated about 15 miles from Key West, and features an oceanfront swimming pool and a boat launch and dock!
We have five cottages plus another three-bedroom house on over an acre of oceanfront property! They are one stand-alone and two side-by-side cottages, and will be reserved based on availability. Cottages are not directly on the water, but it's only about 100-150ft, short walk to the cottage from the water to enjoy the breathtaking view of the ocean.
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.
