About the property

'Sea’s The Day'… at this serene and tropical paradise. This private oceanfront residence offers spectacular 180° ocean views from all three levels, a large tiki hut with built in bar and sink, beautiful and spacious heated pool area, and swells with all of the finest amenities and conveniences of your very own home.

Please view our video which captures the beautiful outdoor and inside main living areas of our home. Long term rentals only please.

Come by land or by sea, this resort-like setting is the perfect place and the perfect excuse to steal away with family or friends, for business or pleasure. Nestled between Islamorada, the Sport Fishing capital of the World, and Key Largo, the Diving Capital of the World, there is no better destination to unwind, play a game of ping pong rain or shine with an Ocean view, explore the salt water flats, canals and marine life in the new tandem kayak available to all guests, drop a line, or simply recline. You have direct Atlantic open water access with your boat (30ft boat max) as well as access to the Bay via very close by Tavernier creek. We are just minutes way from World Wide Sportsman, Bud N Mary's,theater of the Sea, Snappers, Holiday Isle, both Snake & Taverneir Creek and many other fine bars and restaurants. About an hour from Miami and 90 miles north of Key West, the location is as accessible as the ambiance is magical.

Outfitted with a beautiful stainless steel full kitchen with abundant/nice cookware and glassware, this sprawling Ocean front home boasts of unavoidably magnificent views, three generously-sized bedrooms all with nice linens and flat screen televisions in every room, and three full baths. It also includes an office area with a fold-out futon, a printer/scanner, and high-speed wireless internet that reaches the pool, tikki hut bar and ocean. The home sleeps 8 comfortably and the interior décor is nothing short of Keys-chic, bearing light and airy textures inspired by coastal Florida living at its finest.

Our home sits on a beautiful over-sized lot with 25 palm trees. Please note that this is an important factor when spending so much time in one place with family and friends, as everyone has plenty of room to spread out/not be on top of one another. Our yard is fully enclosed/gated for the dogs, and the heated pool is fully gated as well for safety. Resign yourself to the secluded swimming pool ocean breezes, and hammock afternoons. Throw open several sets of pocket sliding glass doors along the whole back wall of the cathedral ceiling living room, and bring the 180° ocean view inside your already-open living room, complete with 50” plasma television. Relax with your morning coffee on the spacious second floor screened in lanai spanning the whole back of the house as you become mesmerized with the serenity of the 180° ocean views and breeze. Lose yourself in a book or come to write one, just plan on being spoiled by nature, and all of its tranquility.

Raise a Margarita at the tiki bar with copious seating while grilling your fresh catch at the outdoor gas grill, all overlooking the ocean. Enjoy the underwater fish lights off the dock which attract schools of fish at night. The lights are on timers, it’s pretty awesome, we hope you enjoy. Wind your way up to the roof and absorb the photographer’s panoramic view from atop the home on the unique Widow’s Walk. Kick back on an Adirondack at the dock along the 90’ of lush Atlantic coastline and watch assorted marine life frolic from the time you sip your coffee at first light until you toast a glass of wine as the sun sets. Our 90' deep water protected dock has plenty of room for your 30 ft or less boat, Jet Ski or kayak. There are tarpon, bonefish, permit, snapper, yellowtail, dolphin, sharks, manatees, turtles and other species off of our coastline. This proves heavenly for the nature lover, serious angler and the recreational fisherman alike. The scuba and snorkel enthusiasts will also enjoy the deep protected water channel, playful manatees, and the huge saltwater flat at low tide, directly off of our coastline as well.

Other attractions in the area include Harris Park at MM 92.5 Oceanside in Tavernier. When launching your boat here you will be immediately in the Atlantic Ocean with access to the bay through Tavernier Creek to the south. There are 2 ramps and parking for 20 vehicles and trailers. In addition there are 11 Pavilions, 12 Barbecue's, 34 Picnic Tables, One Basketball Court, Pets Allowed (Excluding Beach Area), Playground, Protected Beach & Swimming Area, Restroom Access, and Two Baseball Fields. Theater of the Sea (Swim with the Dolphins) John Pennekamp State Park excursions and reefs, fishing charters, Florida Everglades National Park, as well as the famous Holiday Isle Tiki Bar. The property is vacation-ready and pet-friendly, complete with a fully equipped kitchen with lovely granite countertops and a glass dining room table, all overlooking the ocean. The home features a security system and gated driveway, and provides ample room for parking and boat trailers, all linens and towels, 90' dock for 30 ft boat, tiki hut bar, large gas grill, beautiful heated pool, spacious lanai, over-sized property lot with over 25 palm trees, beautiful night time lighting, and an exterior fish cleaning station. Should there be anything you need, the residence is just a pelican’s leap away from Winn Dixie Grocery, a liquor store, CVS Pharmacy, Mariners Hospital, Subway, Pier One, movie theater, and so much more.

What are you waiting for? Sea’s The Day.

Why Please read descritption and rates before contacting owners by email. chose Key Largo Area

We fell in love at first sight with the stunning ocean views, open floor plan, new kitchen, beautiful pool, built-in grill, tiki bar and the wildlife we have seen in our very own back yard. The first time we fished from our dock we caught 8 mangrove snapper within the first hour. There is a sweet spot where the jetty rocks open that you cast into, and you’re likely to pull out a snapper in seconds. That same day we also saw a rolling tarpon 8 feet off our dock, an incredible experience......we knew we were home. There are large blue crab, manatees, needle fish, snapper, and parrot fish that linger at our dock, as well as larger species (sharks, dolphin, barracuda, etc..) that are always lovely to watch from our safe and protected deep water dock inside the jettie.

What makes this house unique

Our location directly on the ocean (near Tavernier Marina), is close to both Islamorada and Key Largo, which is ideal. The expansive 180 degree ocean views can be seen from every level of our home. The 10 foot pocket sliding glass windows open up the back wall of the living room to offer stunning ocean views, including the large salt water flat that is magically revealed at low tide. We have a beautifully designed open floor plan with new stainless steel kitchen and appliances and granite counter tops, private pool, large Tiki Hut/Bar with running water sink, 90 ft cement dock with protected water, spacious screened lanai, comcast on all TVs in every bedroom, Wi-Fi that reaches the pool, tiki hut and dock, plenty of outside seating, hammock, gas grill, fish cleaning station, widow’s walk on roof, ping pong table, tandem kayak, and amazing long ocean views. This is a great home for Family Vacations, Relaxing and Replenishing Gettaway, Entertaining Guests, hosting Corporate Events, Fly Fishing, Deep Sea Fishing, or just fishing from our dock. Bring your own boat or rent one.

My wife and I, two daughters and husbands with two kids just arrived home last night. I have been renting from VRBO for 25 years...Best kept place i have ever stayed. The house and grounds with excellent, couldn't have asked for anything nicer.The lay out of the house for us was bathroom for each bedroom. The large living room was great for the kids and the 180 degree views couldn't have been better. Its easy to see the owners really care about the house and there quests. We will be going back again.....

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at this amazing house. From the moment we got there our trip was perfect. The house was very clean and furnished as the website describes. We had 4 kids ages 11 to 17. They were never bored. They snorkeled off the house near the rocks and saw all kinds of fish. The boys fished off the dock. They were able to catch different fish. At night the dock lights up under the water and you are able to see so many fish. It was awesome. We used the kayak to explore. The house had a ping pong table and we were able to hang out there to take a break from the sun. The Tiki bar area was perfect too. We played cards and relaxed on the hammock. The pool was great and shaded. The whole outside area was very clean.

The screened in porch was great. It had an awesome unobstructed view. We had our morning coffee their and our evening wine.

We noticed the widows walk our last day. Wished we would have noticed sooner. The view from up there was breath taking.

The beds were comfortable. The living area and kitchen were spacious.

Missy was awesome. She was always available from the moment we booked. She even left us a welcome basket with treats and a bottle of wine on our arrival.

It is the perfect location. It is close to both Islamorada and Key Largo. We didn't encounter much traffic in that area. Chads Deli is close and has the best burgers and pizza.

It is a 2 hour drive to Key West, but we preferred the surrounding areas.

They have a stores, restaurants, and churches very close the the house.

It is the best house we have ever stayed and it worth every penny.

I hope to go back next year!

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time in this beautiful home - the home itself is so open and roomy. I normally only enjoy my "own" bed but the beds were just like being at home - We all slept so good. The pool was a great success and the dock at night when the lights came on to look for creatures of the sea was incredible, my son who is 7 had the best time, along with my daughter who is 29, its a place for all ages. The neighborhood is nice and quiet - This is the type of place you rent and its more then you ever expected. We will be back - Thank you so much Melissa for letting us stay in your little pc of Heaven here on earth !!

Amazing and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family vacation! It was beautiful and so clean and comfortable! We had plenty of room to relax. The screened in lanai, the tiki hut, hammock, adirondack chairs, and lounge chairs beside the pool were all wonderful outdoor spots. The view from the kitchen and living area of the Atlantic were beautiful! The kitchen was fantastic and had everything we needed. The pool was a huge hit and so was fishing off of the dock at night, there are underwater lights so you can watch the fish swim! And the dock was perfect for our boat! And our two dogs loved the fenced in yard! It was all so perfect that we all hope to be back!

Great place for an extended family get away!

  • 5 of 5

My parents (in their 70s), husband, brother, brother's girlfriend, and I had an amazing week at Seas The Day, it allowed us all our own space as well as a lot of gathering areas. The Tiki hut was fabulous and the ring game entertained the guys for hours. The pool was wonderful for us North-westerners to cool down each afternoon. The kitchen is very well appointed and the views beautiful, loved watching the dolphins, birds and iguanas. We hope to visit again in the near future. Thanks Melissa and Lori for opening your wonderful home.
