Property description

Come fall in love with the “Pelican Roost” our Ocean Front home in the Florida Keys. Enjoy the laid back life style under the palms with an ocean breeze, the excitement of the big catch, diving on the only coral reef sanctuary in North America, paddle boarding/kayaking silently thru the bay, and/or bird watching right from our back deck, dock, or private sandy beach.
Our home is just off Tavernier Creek which allows you boating access to either the Ocean and/or the Florida Bay. This prime location is just over 1 hour from the Miami International Airport and 2 hours from Key West. We are 30 minutes by car or boat to John Pennekamp National Marine Sanctuary. (http://www.floridastateparks.org/pennekamp). The area features some of the best diving and fishing in the world. Nearby is Islamorada, known as the “Sportsfishing Capital of the World”. The house sits on a beautiful bay off the ocean which is great for paddle boarding and kayaking. 2 Bikes, 2 Paddle Boards, and 2 kayaks are included for your use. The house is convenient to great restaurants and shopping, many within biking or walking distance.
When you enter our second floor home, you are immediately struck with the awesome ocean view. The entire back of the house features sliding glass doors that bring the outside in. The open floor plan is great for cooking, dining, and socializing. The kitchen features a breakfast bar, the dining room features a large table that seats up to ten, and the living area features a Tommy Bahamas relaxed style with cable HDTV and Hi-speed wireless. There are tile floors throughout, except for the three bedrooms, which are carpeted. Each bedroom has a king size bed, large dresser and closet. The 2-bedroom wing has a Jack and Jill lavatory with a shared shower. A full bathroom is located next to the 3rd bedroom. There is a large covered upper deck that extends across the back of the house to enjoy the view, the Ocean breeze, and outside living. It features a large patio table, gas grill, and a tropical wicker seating area. The lower level features an abundant covered patio area.
The house has a very private backyard with an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean. A small private beach is perfect for building sandcastles, catching hermit crabs, or launching small water craft. Enjoy an afternoon nap or book in the hammock shaded by coconut palms with our prevailing southeast ocean breeze.
The property has a large dock with seating just steps from the house. It is a perfect place for a quiet cup of coffee or cocktail with friends. The dock overlooks a small quiet bay and the Tavernier Creek ocean channel, where boat and bird watching is at its best. There is also a fish cleaning station, outdoor shower, and water for cleaning your boat. An outboard or I/O boat up to 24 feet can be accommodated with some restrictions. Come enjoy some of the best Ocean or Florida Bay fishing, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, or paddle boarding right at the house or just minutes away.
Minimum rental is 28 days.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1983

About the owner: As a family of long time Floridians, we have celebrated Birthdays, Holidays and many family get togethers at the Pelican Roost. We are avid fishermen, love our water sports, the laid back Keys life style, and have enjoyed our home thru several generations. This is not just a rental but has been a family vacation home since 1983. We hope to find others who will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Tavernier, FL, USA:
We love our amazing location overlooking the ocean and Tavernier Creek, as well as its convenient proximity to boating, deep sea fishing, inshore fishing, snorkeling, diving, paddle boarding, kayaking, all right outside your doorstep. We are in a great location for restaurants, shopping, and activities all very close. Some of the best diving and fishing in the world are right out our window.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With its close proximity to the Greater Miami area & airports, and being just off of Tavernier Creek for Ocean and Florida Bay boating access, this a perfect location in the Florida Keys. Relax on the covered back porch, in the hammock under the palms, or on the dock overlooking the ocean, as ocean breezes wash over you. Also, some of the best restaurants, shopping, and spas are close by.
