IN ACCORDANCE WITH A MONROE COUNTY, FLORIDA POORLY PUBLICIZED BUT DRACONICALLY ENFORCED REGULATION WE MUST MAINTAIN A 28-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY.
Welcome to our beautiful 2500 square foot home with its 21 windows, 9 foot ceilings and soaring 20 foot foyer entryway, making this one of the lightest, most airy, and spacious vacation homes in the Keys! Newly built in 2011, we feature Berber carpeting and Spanish tile throughout the house, with new model appliances and air conditioners (one on each floor with separate thermostats.)
PLEASE READ BELOW... WE DO OUR BEST TO ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS!
What’s it Like Upstairs?
We have purposely configured our home with only 2 available bedrooms. The master bedroom is 24 feet x 14 feet with 4 windows facing our dock and canal. There is a 32” flat screen LED TV in the master as well. The master bath is 12 feet x 13 feet and features a whirlpool tub and a double vanity.
There is an open study/exercise area next to the master and, down the hall, the 13 1/2 foot by 13 1/2 foot guest bedroom with a 13 ½ foot by 5 ½ foot walk-in closet for ample storage.
There is a second full bath and shower contiguous to the guest bedroom. Both baths feature granite counter-tops.
Downstairs, the 20 foot high entryway leads to the Great Room where you will find comfy and inviting Natuzzi Italian leather living room furniture, a second 32” flat screen LED TV, a separate dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, granite counter-tops, rich cherrywood cabinets, and Spanish tile floors.
Off the dining area are sliding-glass doors that open onto a peaceful back porch where you can read, listen to music or simply do as we do – pour a cool refreshing drink, watch the clouds go by, and R-E-L-A-X…
How About The Grounds?
Our home was beautifully landscaped, although Miss Irma's recent "visit" denuded some of the trees and flowers that don't care for salt water. As the rains have since diluted the salt water, we have begun re-planting, and in a style that requires minimal maintenance. (That means no 7 a.m. wake-up calls from lawn maintenance people starting lawn mowers and blowing leaves around.) Help yourself to the Key limes and star fruit, which I am re-planting on Thanksgiving Day.
We built the fully-equipped power, water, small home-built cleaning station and dock in July of 2011. If your boat is less than 25 feet, it will fit. If larger, give us a call and we'll work something out to spring-line our boat over to our neighbors...
Is This the Perfect Getaway House for You?
Because we chose to configure our home with only the two bedrooms available, it is perfect for us -- a couple who can enjoy the run of a nice big house most of the time, but still have a guest bedroom for family or friends on the occasions they come to visit.
If that’s your situation, and you don’t want to feel cramped in your vacation paradise (or fend off 20 family members who descend on you because they've discovered you have al-l-l-l those bedrooms!) this home will be perfect for you, too!
This is OUR HOME -- and it isn't for everyone. We aren't trying to fill it all the time and we limit occupancy to 4 PEOPLE, unless we discuss other accommodations prior to your visit.
What’s the Neighborhood Like?
Quiet. There are families that live in or have been coming to Breezeswept Beach Estates every year for 30 years or more. Our canal is 10 minutes from open ocean.
The Looe Key Resort, when we want a fresh-caught fish lunch or dinner, is a 3-minute drive or a 15-minute walk. (And the famous Looe Key Reef is about a 20-minute boat ride.) Surrounding us are all sorts of natural attractions (see our guest map below) as well as man-made ones. We are midway between Marathon and Key West, which really expands our dining and entertainment options.
WHO SHOULD NOT CONSIDER OUR HOME
If you have more than 4 people or pets that are family we can't keep our home feeling brand new. 4 people will do very well with our spacious and airy rooms, even on a rainy afternoon. Many more than that on that occasional day -- NOT!
We like to exchange e-mails and say hello on the phone to the guests staying in our home. Personal contact comes first! Once you have signed our Rental Agreement, which can be accomplished via e-mail, you'll give us your Deposit to Hold by credit card, check or wired funds. We'll send you instructions on entry and, voila, you enjoy your vacation.
