About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Relaxing in the beautiful Florida Keys, it does not get any better than this! Swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear open water canal, docking your boat to go to world renowned Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, or heading down to Key West for all the night life and fine dining that it has to offer. This 3 bedroom has all the comforts of home in this tropical paradise island setting.

The master bedroom is furnished with a new king-size memory foam mattress, sleeping on this is a dream. This room has its own bath. One of the guest rooms is upstairs with a new queen-size bed and a twin bed, with a second bath in the hall area. The other guest room is separate, downstairs by itself, with two twin beds which can be converted to a queen. This room requires the use of an outside staircase to come up to the rest of the house. This room is perfect for sleeping in late, very private and peaceful.

There is free wi-fi and cable television in the living room and all bedrooms.

There is a beautiful balcony patio upstairs which overlooks the blue water canal. It is a great place for your morning coffee, lunch, or afternoon cocktails. There is also a downstairs patio area with a gas barbeque grill and sunbathing area.

The house is on an open canal which has access to the Atlantic and Gulf waters. The water is crystal clear and great for snorkeling and swimming. If you don't have a boat, there are great marinas and dive trips within blocks to get you out to some of the most beautiful diving and fishing in the world.

This home is a 3 block walk to 5 Brothers Two Grocery which has the best Cuban coffee and sandwiches in the Keys. It is only 1 more block to Boondocks Bar and Grill, a great place to eat and listen to live music most nights in the large tiki open air restaurant. You definitely get the island atmosphere, and they also have a great miniature golf course. There is also a large grocery store on Big Pine Key, just minutes away by car.

Of course, one of the best things about this home is its close proximity to Key West. This quaint, historical southernmost city is always entertaining and has some of the finest dining establishments anywhere. It is hard to choose, there are so many to pick from. There are also many activities to enjoy, from sunset cruises to snorkeling adventures, with everything in between.

This is a very welcoming home and it is the perfect place to explore all of the adventures that this paradise we call the Florida Keys has to offer.
