About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our villa made it through Hurricane Irma with minor damage, but we have taken our time to renovate to provide the best accommodations in the Villages at Hawks Cay.

You will see debris as the recovery efforts continue, however our favorite restaurants, activities, fishing charters and destinations are open for business! These businesses need your support as they restore the Keys back to what we all love! We are #KEYSSTRONG.

We offer nightly and weekly rentals preferably Saturday to Saturday, you can save money by booking directly from an owner. We would love to host your next family vacation. Come be our guests in the fabulous Florida Keys!

Professionally decorated, fully renovated Hawks Cay Spa Villa with 2 Bedrooms & 2.5 Bathrooms. The interior has been completely redone. New furniture, bedding, porcelain tile and carpeting, granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, flat screen TVs and much, much more. You will absolutely love the accommodations our Villa offers you and your guests. Our designer and contractor designed it with you in mind! Come relax with us in the fabulous Florida Keys.

The Kitchen is open to the dining room and living room which is open and airy with natural light filtering in from the windows and sliding glass doors. This opens up to your own private patio with in-ground spa/dip pool which overlooks the crystal clear waters of Duck Key. Cool off with the kids after a hot day on the water. Cook your fresh catch or make your favorite dish while the kids play in the pool. Enjoy the wonderful weather by having cocktails or dining on your private patio which overlooks the crystal clear waters of Duck Key. No matter what your culinary plan, we have you covered. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay to dine in should you choose to.

The Living Room has a West Indies motif and is equipped with a sleeper sofa, two deep seating chairs and a 52 inch HDTV, surround sound, DVD player and iPod docking station, free WiFi and over 100 HD channels for your enjoyment! The weather is beautiful in Duck Key with average temps in the 70's throughout winter.

Both bedrooms are located upstairs and have their own private bathroom and TV. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a king bed with a new pillow top mattress. Both bedrooms have their own wall mounted 32 inch HDTV. The Guest Room has a queen bed, with pillow top mattress.

Whether swimming with dolphins, fishing, diving or enjoying Calm Waters Spa (voted best hotel spa in the U.S. by Travel and Leisure Magazine, 2009), Hawks Cay offers something for everyone. We do not participate in the Hawks Cay Rental program and therefore can offer discounted rates on our Villa of up to 50% savings.

We hope to have the opportunity to host you as our guests at Hawks Cay. You will see all the Florida Keys has to offer. It will be a memorable vacation for everyone! We are here to help and hope to hear from you soon.

We look forward to hosting you as our guests.

About Jarod Carter

Our names are John and Brenda Carter. We have three sons, who we are very proud of, and 6 grandchildren. Our family is our biggest blessing in life. Our best memories as a family have been spent together diving and fishing the waters of the Florida Keys.

Over the last few years we have started purchasing, renovating and renting our properties as vacation rentals. It is a business that we really enjoy and find it very fulfilling. We get to host families from all over the world in our paradise and hope to help them create memories with their families as we have. We hope to have you as our guests soon!

Jarod Carter purchased this villa in 2011

Why Jarod Carter chose Duck Key

We have been business owners in the South Florida area for over 35 years. Of all of the places we have entertained business guests through the years, Hawks Cay is by far the nicest resort in the Florida Keys. The grounds are so beautifully maintained, the level of service a step above and the things to do are endless.

Hawks Cay is also conveniently located in the middle of the Keys. It is very easy to go to Islamorada and spend the day shopping, sightseeing and having dinner and then head to Key West the next day. While it is in the heart of the Keys, you are still on an island which provides you with the privacy you expect when wanting to get away and take in the laid back lifestyle the Florida Keys is known for.

No matter what your agenda for your next vacation, Duck Key has something for everyone and that is the primary reason for our latest purchase.

What makes this villa unique

Our property went through a full remodel consisting of new bathrooms, kitchen, flooring, mouldings, paint, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops in both the kitchen and master bath and new furnishings. All renovations were overseen by our designer and general contractor. We are proud of the way the property turned out. This is not a 'cookie cutter' Hawks Cay Villa. It is modern, unique and functional.

We have the best cleaning staff around who shares our high standards. The Villa is equipped with everything you'll need to spend the weekend, the week or over a month with us comfortably. No expense was spared with this renovation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your villa with us. Hawks Cay was a wonderful backdrop for our family's first 4th of July. We had access to a boat and made time to head to Coffin's Patch Reef, this was a wonderful site in 10-20 feet of water for snorkeling.

We enjoyed Leigh Ann's Coffee House in Key Colony, as well as the Hideaway Cafe for dinner. Leigh Ann's has a great bakery and coffee as well as a downhome feel. We would recommend it for a stop on your way south.

We can't wait to return. We look forward to future stays in villa 7030 at Hawks Cay!

Great condo overall; excellent location in the Florida Keys

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I flew into Miami and rented a car to spend 4 days in the Keys. I had found the Carter's condo through VRBO and felt the location would be perfect as we wanted to spend time from Key Largo to Key West; this condo in Duck Key is positioned in the middle of the chain. The online pictures do not do this condo justice; it is like opening your own front door and being home! Everything was immaculate and readily available. From luxury shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in the 2 full bathrooms, to hairdryers, to comfortable beds, to a binder full of ideas to books full of positive reviews, this condo truly has it all! Jarod Carter was even kind enough to correspond with me online before accepting our booking to ensure I knew the area had been impacted by Hurricane Irma last Fall. You will still find some places closed in the mid-Keys; but everyone is working diligently to restore the area. The locals are very friendly and everywhere we went we heard incredible stories of perseverance during that time and since. You will see #KeysStrong; they mean it and live it! We really enjoyed the patio, the jacuzzi tub and watching to boats in the waterway behind the condo. Everything about this place is so nice. I would certainly recommend it and we look forward to a return trip in the future!

Meticulously maintained rental unit at Hawk's Cay

  • 5 of 5

We were the first renters in this unit after renovations were made necessary by Hurricane Irma. Jarod was very accommodating and communicative about the repair schedule as we tried to decide whether to still go to the Keys after the hurricane. We were there during the cold snap in early January, and the entire Hawk's Cay resort was closed for renovations. Security staff informed us that we were not allowed to wander on the property at all, and they were fairly strict about enforcing this.

The unit was obviously well cared for, with very comfortable furnishings, inside and out. It was very well equipped for cooking, and would handle 2 couples or a family easily. We had a minor glitch with the heating (obviously not normally necessary in the Keys!), but Jarod and his contractors were very responsive, and took care of the issue promptly.

The weather conditions kept us inside for much of our stay, so I'm happy we were in such clean and comfortable accommodations. I cannot recommend this rental unit highly enough, and it was a pleasure dealing with owners Jarod and Brenda from start to finish.
