Property description

Bring your boat to this 3 bedroom / 3 bath recently updated home with 50 ft of deep water dockage and a custom HEATED swimming pool. House will comfortably sleep 8 with 1 king bed, 2 queens and a sleeper sofa. Each bedroom has it's own private attached bathroom. You will love waking up or relaxing on the water as the only thing that separates the house from the water is the dock. Master suite has a jacuzzi tub. Boot Key harbor is only 3 houses down the canal. The home is very peaceful and has very private tropical spa like pool in the front with a beautiful flagstone fountain wall. You will instantly feel on vacation as you sit by the pool, kayak in the harbor, fish in the canal, go for a bike ride, or take the short 3.5 mile drive to Sombrero beach. We are also minutes from 7 mile bridge if you want to visit Bahia Honda park or take the short 45-50 minute drive to Key West. Sorry no RV parking.

Please call or e-mail me if you would like additional pictures (I usually respond within the hour). Please notice the water outside of the sliding glass doors in both the family room and the bedroom. You are literally right on the water! We catch jacks, mangrove snappers, chubs, barracudas and grunts off the dock for a quick lunch and the pelicans and herons always join you when you are cleaning fish on the concrete fish cleaning station. There is a fishing kayak, a 2 man ocean kayak and 5 bicycles included with the rental. The heated spa like pool located in the front of the house is awesome with a bench running the length of it and a separate smaller pool that the fountain flows into. The smaller pool is great if you want to get away from the splashing kids. 2012 improvements many based on guest requests include a new A/C unit on the 2nd floor, swim ladder on the dock, 3 kids bikes to cover kids ages 3-18, gas grill,bait freezer, and a pack and play.

Location

  • A

    Sombrero Beach View on map

    Great kids snorkeling. Two rock ledges that house a lot of little fish, lobsters, rays. Kids can start by standing in the water and putting their face in with mask and snorkel. There is also a playground here and nice bathrooms and showers.

  • B

    Bahia Honda Pak View on map

    About a 15 minute drive. Great Snorkeling off the beach. Have seen nurse sharks, rays, plenty of fish and lobsters. Nature trails and stuff for kids. I prefer the beach at the north end, less sea grass and nicer water conditions. There are beaches on both the ocean and gulf side, so you can find a spot no matter where the wind is coming from.

  • C

    Biking to Pigeon Key View on map

    There is a 2.2 mile bridge that leads to Pigeon key. You can ride from the house which adds about 1.5 more miles. There is no traffic on the bridge so it is a great ride. There is a fee to get on to the key, but it is a great spot for a picnic.

  • D

    No Name Pub View on map

    Great spot to go for lunch. Can be pricey, but the food is excellent. Pizza is great. Favorites include Conch fritters and Cuba Sandwich. The decor is one of a kind and we usually see Key Deer.
