About the property

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

Escape to the Caribbean without leaving the United States. Due to our geographic location, Duck Key offers easy access to the Atlantic, Florida Bay or Gulf of Mexico. With free flowing canals, turquoise water and Venetian bridges, you will think you are in the West Indies.

Our home on Duck Key, Mile Marker 61, is located in a tropical setting with lush vegetation. The completely furnished two bedroom two bath stilt duplex will sleep six persons. There is a King bed in the master, Queen bed in the guest bedroom, and a Queen sleeper sofa in the living room. We have furnished it with all the conveniences of home. Fully equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher, washer and dryer, large over sized living room with cable TV and VCR. There is a water view from the screened porch overlooking the dock and clear deep draft wide canal.

President Truman discovered Duck Key in 1946 when he stayed here while recovering from a bad cough.

Further Details: President Truman discovered Duck Key in 1946 when he stayed here while recovering from a bad cough. During his stay each morning, he would walk the Island and commented daily on the clear turquoise waters that surround Duck Key. When you arrive on the residential Island, you will have to cross the Truman Bridge. Even now you will see people walking, jogging, biking or running through Duck Key.

Downstairs at our duplex, there is a freezer, fish cleaning table, Hot Tub, BBQ Grill, patio furniture and 40 feet of dockage for your boat. Fish off the dock, or swim in our beautiful pool. The yard is landscaped with brick pavers and landscape lights. There is covered parking for your cars and parking for your boat trailer. We can include a fishing and sightseeing charter with your lodging.

The Unique Benefits at this House: For those of you that are bringing a boat, my husband, who is a local Charter Captain will share some great fishing spots with you. If you are not bringing a boat, Capt. Lee will take you on a boat ride along the beautiful canals of Duck Key.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in many years. No worries and very peaceful. The accommodations were wonderful, and the house is beautiful to every aspect. The grounds are manicured with exotic plants, and also with several Key Lime trees at your footsteps; to help refresh those poolside drinks. The harbor is crystal clear, with lots of sea life passing through, my wife and daughter watched the fish, sea turtles and occasional sting rays pass through on a daily basis. Lynn and Lee, are wonderful people who went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. I recommend this location Highly!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Keys but our first time staying in Duck Key, and we loved it! After our original accommodation in KCB was cancelled at short notice, Lynn was really helpful and let us rent her beautiful home which was far better than we could've imagined. The house has everything you need and more, we really didn't want to leave! Lynn & Lee are a great couple who go out of their way to make you feel so welcome.

The pool at the house is great, and we saw manatees and shark from the dock. We loved Sombrero beach in Marathon, the sunset cruise from Duck Key and the Grassy Key Outpost market & grill is a fabulous place to eat and shop! Thank you Lynn & Lee for making our holiday really special, we can't wait to return next year.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in May and had a wonderful time. We have visited Duck Key for years and this location is a favorite. The home is immaculate - decorated beautifully. We had 4 adults and plenty of space. The home is very well equipt, nothing needed. It is clear the owners take great pride in their home - it shows. We will be back next time we have a group of 4.

Great

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely awesome, beautiful home with evrything you might need and more. The best set-up in the Keys with no comparison, it was so good we stayed in the pool more than going out on the boat. We already made our reservation for next year. Owners live next door and are very friendly & helpful, this was the most relaxing vacation we have had.

Hopefully all future renters are good and don't ruin a good thing for the rest of us.

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5

The owners have spared no expense in this property. Tasteful coastal decor abounds in this well appointed home. We had a wonderful time. The owners made us feel so welcome and comfortable - like friends. The new pool is refreshing. For the fishermen - it has it all: dock, fish cleaning station, outdoor shower, and a captain to boot (we didn't fish with Capt Lee but were envious of all his catches). You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful home on Duck Key. Fantastic hosts really make you feel welcome!

  • 5 of 5

GREAT! Everything is new and spotless. Big comfortable rooms and beds. Even the fold out couch is comfortable. Great dock for a boat with quick access to ocean or gulf. BEAUTIFUL WARM POOL.

If you want to catch fish talk to the owner. A real fishing captain with years of know how. He's available for charters on a beautiful and capable 30' boat. Specializing in light tackle I learned lots of new tricks!

Great hosts who really made us all feel most welcome. Couldn't have asked for more. Maybe two months next time.
