Property description

Why would anyone want to rent a house on a canal right next to other houses and no real place to swim when you could rent this private stunning place surrounded on 3 sides by water. We have the most charming and spectacular and intimate property in Key Largo for your vacation rental. With our OWN PRIVATE BEACH, stunning moon rises over the water, gorgeous sunrises and sunset skies and tropical gardens and delightful breezes, you couldn’t have a better place for an enjoyable stay.

Historic Shadow Point estate, a gated community, offers an exclusive retreat for vacationers desiring an intimate and private setting. This vacation rental is perfect for boaters, kayakers, canoers, divers and fishermen and can comfortably accommodate family retreats, workshops, film shoots, anniversary parties, and commitment ceremonies. Have your wedding and reception on the property as well as a rehearsal dinner the night before and a beach party brunch the day after the vows. All this without the restrictions of hotels and added expenses for a different venue.
This historic one-of-a-kind estate offers a glimpse of Key Largo as it was at the turn of the century. With its original Dade County hardwood floors, sinks in every room and unique pocket slider windows, the two guest houses offer the vacationer a chance to step back in time and experience the charm of days gone by. Located on a gated hammock point, the 2.5-acre estate is filled with lush tropical trees and 180-degree view of pristine Key Largo Sound. It has its own private beach ready to launch our kayaks and paddleboards that come with the rental or just relax and built your own sand castle. The best dive reefs in the country are just a short boat ride away.

HISTORY: Shadow Point was built in 1917 by a ship captain and later bought by Chicago Industrialist, Frank Sweeting, for his fishing friends. After his daughter and son-in-law, Leila & Marvin Adams, inherited the property, Adams spearheaded the design and construction of the nearby canal that links the bay side on the ocean side of Key Largo. It is now known by the locals as ' Adams Cut'.
Named for the beautiful changing shadows and light that filter through the tropical hardwood hammock, Shadow Point is located on Key Largo Sound, the ocean side of Key Largo. Today, this estate offers the same relaxed atmosphere and seclusion of an earlier era. The 2.5-acre point is filled with lush tropical trees including Buttonwood, Gumbo Limbo. Lignum Vitae, and Key Lime. With a 260-degree view of pristine Key Largo Sound, Shadow Point is an exclusive retreat for those desiring an intimate and private setting.

ACCOMMODATIONS: The main house has four large bedrooms with twin beds in two rooms and 2 king beds in the other two. There are private baths in both bedrooms with king beds. The large kitchen is user-friendly and perfect for viewing the lovely trees and water while sipping coffee. The dining table can seat fourteen for family gatherings. A large breezy porch with hammock and two daybeds runs the length of the house and offers a panoramic view of the water. The guest cottage has a small stocked kitchen, two bedrooms that each contains twin beds, a living room with a queen pullout couch, and a charming screened porch. Air conditioning, cable TV, and wireless Internet add comfort and convenience. The property has 3 docks one of which has electric and water and can take a boat that draws up to 4 feet. This vacation rental is perfect for boaters, divers and fishermen along with being large enough for family retreats, workshops, and film shoots. We prefer to rent both houses together so you can experience total privacy and seclusion.

ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS: Swimming, sailing, canoeing, and kayaking are available on the site. Boat rentals, parasailing, reef diving are nearby. Local attractions include Theater of the Sea, a marine mammal park, 5 miles south; Swim with the Dolphins, 3 miles south; and the Key Largo Community Park, with swimming pools, tennis courts, and a fitness trail. Shopping and restaurants are only minutes away. We have had numerous celebrations at Shadow Point. Please call for information.

Other Activities: kayaking, canoeing, tubing, boating, paddle boarding

Additional information about rental rates

Notes:

Rent for both houses ranges from $7000 to $7500 a week plus $400 cleaning and 12.5% taxes. During holidays, high season, special dates and events the property rents for more. We only rent the cottage with the main house so you can experience total privacy. Half of the total rental is due at time of booking. Security deposit and the other half of rent are due 60 days before the first day of rental. There is an extra charge for weddings and receptions. This is a great price for what you are getting. Privacy and seclusion and a fabulous view and your own beach with use of a double kayak, 4 single kayaks, and 2 paddleboards.

Monthly rentals are negotiable depending on the season. There is a $100 charge for each person exceeding 12 but not to go over 16. Security deposit of $1500 is required. The place will not be held until a deposit of half the rental is received. E-mail for more information and more photos. Please do not inquire about anything less than four days. Fee is $100 per dog.

Homeaway and VRBO's recent decision to impose large service fees (est $300 - $400) for booking through VRBO,s and Homeaway's platform we are permitting guests to pay directly and avoid the service fees. If you'd like to book directly please send us a request along with your e-mail.Payments by check or wire will have no fee and payments by credit card will have a 2% fee. added.

I will consider renting for 4 night or more.

Rentals comply with Sec 134-1 subsection b(1) of the Monroe county code.

Location

Car: Necessary

This 2.5 acre ocean side estate is located at the north end of Key Largo Sound at mile marker 103 just a one hour drive from Miami International Airport. It is across the highway from the Marriott Resort yet so secluded you would think you were in another world.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Canoeing, Tubing, Boating, Paddle boarding, Fishing, Swimming, Sun bathing - All of these things can be done right from the property. Right across the highway is the Marriott Resort that offers boat rentals and parasailing. Nearby you can take a snorkel and dive boat to the most beautiful reefs in the world. Stay on land and go across the Street to 'Sun Downers' Restaurant to get a view of the bay and feed the Tarpon.
