About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Wonderful, pet friendly and beautifully decorated 3/2 home on the water that’s perfect for a vacation or simply relaxation. It’s located on beautiful Cudjoe Gardens with direct ocean access. There’s a marina within walking or rowing distance. Check out the nearby Marvin Key video.

Vacation rental includes kayaks (3), life vests and paddles. We are constantly updating our paddling gear so check back often.

Oceanside and Gulf side boating await for those interested in exploring the Keys. If you hire a guide, you can explore offshore beaches on the Gulf side that we consider comparable or better than many of the beaches on Dr. Beach's list. Every once in a while a seaplane will take someone to these beaches because the locations are just so wonderful (see the video someone posted about Marvin Key which is in the backcountry).

Looe Key Reef is an easy trip by boat or charter. The home itself is has a great screened in area that overlooks the swimming canal. Great place to have a cup of coffee in the morning or night. Inside you’ll find a warm, comfortable home that’s completely furnished and ready to go. There is plenty of parking, so you do not have to pay to storage your trailer somewhere else.

For relaxation purposes, we have installed, wall-mounted 4K Ultra high-definition TVs with Chromecast built in. These TVs are smartly connected to the wifi.

Keywords: Waterfront, Dock (80 foot of dockage on a deep canal), Oceanside, no bridge, very near Key West. Kayaks).

This home only rents with a minimum of 28 days. Sorry, there are no weekly rentals allowed.

About The Owner

Avid outdoors person that like solitude. Othe hobbies are reading and education.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Cudjoe Gardens

I chose this location because the water clarity is just so wonderful and the canal is considered a swimming canal. My husband would tell you that the number one reason was the direct ocean access.

What makes this house unique

When I don't catch my own there are plenty of fine places to eat fresh fish.

There is a public ramp vey close to the home. The home is 21 miles away from Key West.

Close to Key West but with the peace and tranquility of the gardens.

Stayed in many homes in the Keys with the Sheriffs office on the corner sure felt safe. Pictures are pretty true to how the house looks. Enjoyed our stay. Loved being so close to Key West.

I hesitate to write this because it will probably put the house in more demand, couldn't find a nicer neighborhood, in a better geographic location. The interior of the house is very attractive and comfortable (especially the beds) although we spent most of the time we were home on the screened in porch. There are fish in the canal. There are three kayaks and a canoe. It is easy to get to the ocean. Naja is wonderful to work with. There are great bike paths nearby and on adjacent keys. We had a wonderful time except for the fact that a whole month seemed like a week and a half. February has become our favorite month of the year.
