About Andy Cancela

God-loving, family oriented, and likes to keep things simple.

Andy Cancela purchased this house in 2008

Why Andy Cancela chose Key Largo Area

We think Plantation Key is the jewel of the Florida Keys. Islamorada is the coined the 'fishing capital of the world'. Andy has completely remodeled the property inside and out planting over 600 trees and shrubs to create a lush private paradise.

What makes this house unique

It offers an abundance of open space and privacy. There are breath-taking sunrises and an ever-changing lure of the ocean view. This unique property is somewhat of a compound. We have the main house which is comprised of a 1BR 1BA master suite and a 2BR 2BA downstairs apartment. Privately located adjacent to the main house is a unique Red Cross cottage built in the 1930's.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week on this property. There was plenty of room for us and my daughter, her husband and our grand daughter. All three units were clean and ready for us upon our arrival. The owners were easy to reach, and we were given local manager info when we needed anything. The dock accommodated our small boat so we were able to go and fish and snorkel at our leisure. The beach front allowed for us to wander into the ocean for a refreshing swim. All in all, it was a lovely stay.

Well kept vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our first-ever Keys vacation in Islamorada. We enjoyed fishing from dock and caught two snapper dinners (try squid as bait with split shot weight) that we pan seared on the outdoor grill. We love to cook and eat and the cooking amenities, utensils, and proximity to the Winn -Dixie grocery all worked well for us. Plenty of room, clean, private compound feel, great AC, working ice makers x 2. We enjoyed the terrific affordable pool at Founders park(1.5 miles), local eateries, Treasure isle Sea life center, and local fishing charters. Laundry worked well too. A great getaway. Andy very responsive and kind. :) You can tell he loves his home and sharing it with others.

Ideal Keys Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Sanctuary in Paradise was indeed paradise! The property was perfect for our family visit, with an upscale 1 bedroom upstairs for my parents, a comfortable 2 bedroom downstairs for husband, children and myself and a separate cottage for my brother. We had plenty of space when we needed it, but the upstairs unit was perfect for us to have meals together and watch movies.

The property and beach were amazing! Close to restaurants and shopping, but completely private. A++

True Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Owners were extremely kind and accommodating.

location was perfect and the view was breathtaking!

Kids had a great time playing in the large yard while parents kicked back on the porch. The separate living quarters and kitchens made it great for a multi-family stay.

We will be back!

Our week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

After spending seven days in paradise, my husband and I left the “Sanctuary in Paradise” recharged. Each morning we took in the beautiful sunrise from the deck in the master upstairs. We rented a boat and could have it docked at the house for immediate access to the ocean, and in the afternoon, we laid under the sun relaxing on the hammocks. Our evenings were spent fishing on the dock, catching nonstop.

We decided on this house so we could host an intimate wedding ceremony and reception. Our guests were stunned when they pulled into Schooner Bay Road and were welcomed by the breathtaking ocean view. The property is so spacious and had room for us to have a ceremony by the sea and followed by a reception.

The house was stocked with everything you would need from beach towels, to air mattresses and kitchen cookware. There was little for us to think about.

The property owner, Andy Cancela, was beyond gracious and accommodating each time I had a question. This was the best week I could have imaged. You will not be disappointed!

Absolutely perfect week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a wonderful week in Plantation Key. We went with our daughter, my elderly parents, sister and brother. The house is set up perfectly for multiple families to have there own space but still enjoy the week together. Every morning we woke up early to see an amazing sunset and my husband, who is an avid fishermen, spent a great deal of time fishing off the end of the dock. He caught a multitude of fish and we enjoyed kayaking, swimming and sunning. All in all a beautiful week in a beautiful place. We highly recommend this house!

The Keys is home to every water sport imaginable. There are activities for adults and children alike. There is the Theatre of the Sea which is a marine life zoo offering swimming with dolphins. Islamorada has once been coined the fishing capital of the world offering fishing of every kind. Another big attraction is the John Pennekamp State Park which offers some of the best snorkeling/diving with the famous underwater Jesus statue. There are also several other area attractions that can be found to suit your needs. We have a list of our favorite things to do and places to eat located in the handbook upon arrival.
