If you are looking to relax and learn the true meaning of the term “Keys Time” you are looking in the right area! Sometimes I come down and relax on the water and others I am paddleboarding, Kayaking, fishing, scuba diving etc. It is the epitome of true mental relief.
My home is conveniently located at Mile Marker 89. It is the upstairs unit only. The downstairs is not available for rental. The units are separate with there own private entrances. If you are planning to bring your boat great! They are welcome, I have plenty of parking at the residence.
There is room for your boat and recreational watercraft with 45 feet of dock space available in this deep water canal however, you will need to load it at a local ramp. The closest ramp and pool is at Founders Park (MM 87).
Founders Park offers activity or relaxation for the whole family. An Olympic-sized pool with diving area, a shallow water beach, water sports rentals, ball fields, fishing jetty, bocce, tennis and basketball courts, vita course with 18 exercise stations, multi-purpose path, skate park and dog park all are within the 40-acre park. Fees may apply. But seriously if you're in the Keys…no pool…... GO TO THE BEACH OR OUT ON THE WATER!
Florida Bay is just minutes away with one turn onto the head canal. Waterfront marina or convenient store is available for fueling and bait at the basin of the head canal. You are welcome to fish from the dock. I have a fish cleaning station available. You will see all types of sea life in our canal.
You can walk to a local grocery store for supplies. The nice people at Payfair will prepare you some delicious subs and wrap them for the cooler. They are also known to be one of the best butcher shops in the area. They always have a very nice selection of meat if you didn’t catch your dinner! ;) Or you can walk over to 'Craig's Restaurant' for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Make sure you try the famous fish sandwich YUM!! Hope to hear from you soon.

Come enjoy my Florida key home. I was born in Chicago and moved to Ohio at a young age. I have always had a love for the ocean and was very lucky that my mom lived in Deerfield Beach FL so I started snorkeling and diving at a very young age. When I graduated from high school I joined the Navy which allowed me to dive all over the world which was a great experience but the reefs in the keys are as nice as any that I have had the opportunity to see. After the Navy I moved to south Florida and would drive to the keys every other weekend. I have dove from Merritt Island FL to Key West. I have always had the dream to own a house in the Keys I picked this location because I find it the best of all worlds for Diving/fishing/water sports/dining/bar hoping and just a laid back all around perfect area to be in. It is a 2 story house with the upstairs and downstairs totally separated I use the downstairs on weekends when I get the chance. So I might get the opportunity to meet you. Come fall in love with Plantation Key as I did.
Anna purchased this House in 2013
What makes this House unique
The house conveniently located directly behind Craig’s Restaurant and Payfair Supermarket. My normal routine is to wake up make a bloody mary and walk over to Payfair to get our subs for the boat, go out on the water for the day and when I come home I obviously don’t feel like cooking so I just walk across the street to Craig’s and grab an awesome dinner. I love it!!
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
We arrived on July 8th and began a month we will never forget. The accommodations were wonderful, island theme, as expected. The balcony was well used for all meals for the most part, but seating inside was available. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment for cooking needs, roomy fridge, dishwasher (but never used) and breakfast bar. It was used for my computer to do some business while there. The canal was great feature. We had the opportunity to watch green herons be fed and learn to fly, iguanas were plentiful (locals don't like them) and we enjoyed them, had a manatee come in twice and we "watered" them and even saw 2 nurse sharks. Being a Facebook fool for fun stuff, and loving my iPhone/Camera, captured all on it and friends so enjoyed our trip along with us. Thank you Anne and Joe
PS going back!!!
We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. The animals are definitely a bonus. This was a seamless transaction, you all were a pleasure and we are delighted to hear that you want to come back. Thank you for being great renters! :)
Great location convnient for boat owners
The location is perfect! We spend the moth of June and had our boat which was a perfect amenity to have the house accommodate our "water toys" as well as the restaurant across the street cook our catch. Safe and friendly neighborhood. The house has everything you need so don't over pack, all you need is your swimsuit, shorts, flip-flops and sunblock. Friendly owners and daily Manatee visits...
An amazing place and amazing location
The pictures dont do this house justice. Very nice layout and everything you need is already there. This was our first vbro rental and this was the best case senario, a very nice house better than described with everything so nearby that you can walk to most places yet had a smalltown feel. I would recommend this jewel to anyone. My wife enjoyed the manatees the most out of everything we did in the 10 days we were there. They showed up at random right off of the private dock.
What a great find. Quiet spot but close enough to many activities. Snorkeling at John Pennekamp was fun, breakfast at Made 2 Order, and dinner at Islamd Grill was good. As previous renter mentioned, we also had visitors..... Manatees almost every day in the canal. You can launch your boat at Founders Park (but no PWC) and an ok beach. I would recommend the beach at Harry Harris park just 2 miles North. The owners whom we met at the tail end of the trip were extremely friendly. We will be back!

I wanted to take the time to let the owners know what a wonderful time we all had staying at their place in the beautiful Florida Keys. We were fortunate enough to meet both Anna and Joe towards the end of our stay. They are great people. This home is located in the perfect spot because it allows you to access all points of interest in the Florida Keys really quick. The beaches are outstanding and not far. Same goes with the fishing you can access both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic. Perfect spot to stay if you are a diver or snorkeler. Like others have mentioned the dock is ideal if you are traveling with a boat. I would stay here again and again no complaints.
Excellent for boaters!
If you are looking for a place to keep your boat while you vacation, this place is perfect! We have a 33' foot Hydra-Sport Express and the boat parking was perfect! Clean and well furnished. The apt is located in a convenient spot and it's in a great location if you want to sport or fish around in Islamorada, and the surrounding keys. A great restaurant is right across the street too!
