We went back!
Last Feb. was so good away from our beautiful western NC mountains while we stayed in this home that we decided to go back! The owners have clearly maintained this property and have added extras including a "major league" ice maker. The house is equipped with many extras that make it very livable and comfortable. We entertained two other couples for four days during our month and the house worked well with its 3 BR/3BR layout. The owners are very responsive and easy to work with. Summerland Key is situated very conveniently to Key West and offer many services right there on the Key. My wife and I recommend this neat canal house on Summerland Key!
Nice February here!
A great change from the Feb mountains in Western NC, We found the home online and it was all that was advertised! The owners have put so many extras and personal touches here that were beyond our expectations. Summerland Key has quite the unique little stores-grocery, bait, liquor, hardware, cafe- that one can avoid the trip to Big Pine or Key West. Key West only 25 miles away if you like the crowds there. We sure enjoyed our month here and appreciate the owners sharing it with us!
first class property
This is a very nice home. I would recommend to anyone
We didn't get chance to go out on the water but the dock was very nice.
Thank you to the owners for use of your very nice home

This was a beautiful house in an excellent situation on one of the canals in Summerland Key. The owner has furnished and equipped the house to a very high standard. They have thought of everything you would need while holidaying in their property. Attention to detail is first class.The property looks good on the pictures but it is not until you see it that you realise what a lovely home it is. It definitely has the 'wow!" factor. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
My wife, two teenage boys and 10-year-old daughter went to enjoy the lower keys during the week of lobster sport season. Seas the Keys was ideally located to take our 16' Sea Ray out to Looe Reef for snorkeling and out to other reef areas for fishing. A little further out past the reef, the mahi mahi were biting at this time of the year. However, my family are less enthusiastic fishermen than I, so I didn't push that. Don't miss Looe Reef. I believe this spot rivals any family friendly snorkeling location in the Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Florida Keys and the Dry Tortugas (including Little Africa off Loggerhead Key.) My daughter was pumped to get her first underwater glimpses of reef sharks, nurse sharks and a 400-lb Goliath Grouper that sought shade under our boat. We also fished the bridge at Kemp Channel very successfully for mangrove snapper and visited the area around the Content Keys to do our lobstering. My daughter enjoyed swimming in the canal and her enthusiasm often encouraged other family members to join her. We spent a day in Key West visiting the Truman Little White House, touring the Hemingway House and exploring. Key West is about an half hour drive, and we decided to return two more evenings for dinner, and the sunset street performances at Mallory Square. Our activities took us far and wide, and the time we spent in the house winding down at the end of the day was very comfortable. The furniture, flooring, bathroom fixtures and other appointments are fresh and maintained in a like-new condition. We enjoyed preparing our fish and lobster on a very nice grill before dining and playing cards at the dining room table. The living room area furniture is very comfy and invites relaxation while listening to music from Sonos on the stereo system. This is an excellent lower keys vacation home from which to launch your activitities and exploration.
a break from the cold
I came down to the Keys kinda spur of the moment and was lucky enough to get this house for a week. The house had everything I wanted and alot of extras.
Kicking back at night sitting in the screened in deck listening to the sound system and looking at the green back lit water in the canal is just heaven. Thx to the owners and I'll be back..
Summerland Key is right in between the famous 7 mile bridge and Bahia Honda, a famous state park and beach area, and Key West. It has a quaint small town, quiet feel, while still boasting amenities, such as a small grocery store, gas, bank, etc. Only 10 minutes from a larger grocery store, and 25 minutes from the famous, historic party town, Key West. Have the best of both worlds!
