About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath house w/den, sleeps 8. full kitchen set on lush, tropical lot

Be the first one out the inlet! Some of the best fishing opportunities in the world await you minutes from your own private dock. More than enough dockage for boats with plenty of room to park the trailers. Why rent a hotel room when you can rent the whole thing!

The Island community of Duck Key is a small island located at mile marker 61 off the Overseas Highway in the Florida Keys. Vehicles cross over the island's canals by way of picturesque arched bridges. In the distance is Grassy Key which is part of Marathon. Sixty miles further south is Key West. Two story pool home with plenty of fun downstairs; fishing right off of the dock, sunning and enjoying the boats going by while you cook your catch and eat it poolside. Plenty of things to do at the resort such as shopping, spa, marina, tennis, biking and children's activities.

About Rob

We've been coming to the keys our entire married life. Hawk's Cay was then called The Indies Inn. We had a marina condo for 6 years before expanding to our house, which is so much better! All of the space for our trailers, boats cars and trucks... Our family, 3 sons and a daughter, and usually the grandparents, have been vacationing here, enjoying the gorgeous clear, turquoise waters, porpoises, sea turtles, flying fish as we make our way out to catch our dinner of snapper, grouper, mahi mahi, and/or tuna! We have wonderful memories of boating, wake boarding, and snorkling..... on or in the water.

Rob purchased this house in 2006

Why Rob chose Duck Key

Best lot on the island with the added benefits of the resort amenities.

Fishing in the morning and relaxing in the evening.

Extraordinary nights of star gazing.

What makes this house unique

Best ocean access in the Keys. We have had some of the best family memories! It's a wonderful place to get in touch with what really matters in life.

The Best of Everything

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the location of this home. Right on the canal, with a beautiful view. The house has plenty of room. With 2 living areas, it's ideal if you have teenagers or adults who want to stay up late!! A perfect set up by the pool with a TV, makes it an ideal place to hang out and have dinner. The owners Rob and Barbie have thought of everything! They were very helpful and made sure to check in with us when we got there. Can't wait to go back!

the best place in the keys

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in july and had a great time. We had 4 adults and 3 children and 2 dogs and there was more then enough room for more! Great fishing of dock. Saw lots of marine life. Pool to cool off in. Had a fridge, grill, tv, and smoker on porch. This place has the works! Very well kept. Stayed at many places in the keys and this home was the absolute best. No matter of you like to fish, explore or just relax at home this is the place for you! Great location. Close to bridge. 1 min from the ocean. Owner rob was the most helpful person! Great to work with! Definitely coming back again this summer! Thank you again rob parker for letting us rent your beautiful home and we hope to return this summer!

Excellent wedding spot!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were lucky enough to have this house as our wedding venue. It was amazing! From fishing off the dock to lounging poolside, this place has it all. Great views of the canal and easy access to the ocean and its many reefs. Also an excellent place to rent if you have a boat.

Awesome family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week stay at this lovely home and I can't say enough wonderful things about our vacation. From the comfortable accommodations to the sparkling pool to the views of all the activity on the canal, this was one of our family's best vacations. We snorkeled, went scuba diving, and fished, and then enjoyed the fruits of our labor pool and dock side. We were all sad to leave and will definitely return again to the Florida Keys! Thank you to the owner, Rob, for making us feel welcome and "at home" in your home.

Quiet Location

  • 4 of 5

We have always stayed in the lower keys or Key West but have heard great things about the Marathon area, so we decided to stay here over the holidays. While we still prefer the lower keys to Marathon (generally quieter but still close to Key West, better back-country options, more open water views), we did like this house and Duck Key--very quiet at night and beautiful blue-water canals to gaze across. The house has nice water views and was very comfortable for my family of four. I also found the owner to be genial and easy to work with, and the price was reasonable for a holiday week.

Just got back from a 2 week stay at this wonderful house in Duck Key. We had a great time with family getting lobster and fishing for snapper. I would recommend renting this to anyone looking to relax or fight the fish of your dreams. Thanks Rob for sharing your piece of paradise with our family looking forward to next year.
