About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 .Most of our guests return year after year

This beautiful and spacious home (2300 sq feet) was built in 2002. It has a wonderful master suite with two other large bedrooms. It has an open floor plan with high end kitchen appliances opening up to the great room. You can relax in the morning with a cup of coffee in the screened in porch overlooking our lovely quiet canal. There is a large storage room under the home complete with a refrigerator and freezer. There is also exercise equipment if you feel motivated. Our home is located on a dead-end street with a wildlife management area in the front of the house makes for a quiet private setting. There is fantastic soft shell crabbing in the wildlife area in the winter. Our home is on a 1/2 acre gated beautifully landscaped lot which is very rare in the Keys. It feels as if you have stepped into a resort in the Caribbean. We have several tropical fruit trees that produce in season. There is ample parking for your car and trailer. You can fish right off our 175 foot step-down deep water dock. The access to both the Gulf and the Atlantic is less than a minute. Deep draft boats are not a problem.

After your fishing trip you can go for a swim in your own custom built 41 foot saltwater lagoon swimming pool. It has a reef entry with a swim out next to the tiki hut. Our hammock next to the tiki hut is one of our favorite places to relax. A custom deck surrounds the pool.

Having rented vacation homes previously for several years we understand how stressful it is renting an unseen home so I am happy to address any and all of your questions. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Fuel for your boat is a short distance away.

About Ron Ungar

My wife and I are both school teachers. My wife teaches 3 rd grade and I teach at a community college. We live in San Diego CA. She loves art and I love all types of water sports. We spent over 5 summers in the Keys with our two labs before we decided to buy a home. Fishing the back country in my panga is one of our favorite activities.

Ron Ungar purchased this house in 2010

Why Ron Ungar chose Lower Keys Area

We looked for several years and looked at dozens of home and this one was love at first sight. To have over 1/2 acre of landscaped land in the keys was something we just could not pass up. Being close to kemp canal was important to me. The open floor plan was important to my wife.

What makes this house unique

The lagoon pool is great along with the 175 foot sea wall. Just the peace that we feel when we are at are at our property is worth its weight in gold. The access to the ocean and gulf is minutes with one of the deepest and widest canals in the Keys.

Best Vacation Rental Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Florida Keys several times in the past but this property was the absolute best!! The location on Cudjoe Key is perfect. You are close to both Marathon and Key West. There are several excellent restaurants within a few minutes as well as a grocery store, gas station, and boat launch. The property has a dock and is located on a deep wide canal that easily accommodated our 32 ft boat. The access to the Gulf, Looe Key, and many other boating adventures was quick and easy. The home is beautifully furnished and has all of the amenities you have at home. The salt water pool is perfect and has a large shallow ledge that our toddler loved. There is plenty of space inside and out for any activity you could dream of. The owner was great and made sure everything was prefect for our vacation. We will be back to stay at this property!!!

WE'll Be Back

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties during our frequent visits to the Florida Keys. This property provided the best of the conveniences we look for: location between Big Pine Key and Key West, quick boating access to both the Gulf and Atlantic, a nearby marina for gas and bait, wide canal, large docking space for our 31’ boat, beautiful lagoon pool, house with a roomy open floor plan, ground floor closed in area for all our fishing and scuba gear, bait freezer, and large play area for the grandchildren.

Upon our arrival the grandchildren immediately placed all the pool area furniture just like they had seen it in the picture on the VRBO website. The pool and fishing off the dock provided many hours of pleasure for them. Everyone loved snorkeling at the coral heads near Little Palm Island and the reef at Looe Key as well as diving for lobster and fishing off shore. And, of course, the grandchildren insisted on visiting the Key Deer at Big Pine Key and No Name Key often during our stay.

The house was tastefully furnished and roomy enough for the adults and children to be comfortable during their indoor activities. The screened in porch became our favorite place to have our morning coffee while planning the day’s activities. There was ample seating at the dining table and kitchen bar for all the family. Our interaction with the owner in addition to the property manager was a plus. The owner graciously contacted us to ask if we were experiencing any problems with the property and to offer helpful information.

Our family and guests unanimously agreed that this property is the ideal vacation “resort.” We are looking forward to coming next year.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location for our month long stay in the Keys! We were a short boat ride to Looe Key...which we took full advantage of! On the days that we weren't able to go out of the boat because of the weather then we took a quick 20 minute car ride to Key West to shop and eat of course! The house was perfect for our family including my mother in law! The kids were comfortable in the room with the twin beds and they had Wi-Fi which is big deal! We enjoyed the pool more than I had imagined! We jumped in the pool on days we went out on the boat it was the perfect way to cool off! We also enjoyed have lunch under the Tiki Hut and then going for a swim! The owners were very helpful and gave us recommendations for great places to eat!We can't wait to come back next summer!

This beautiful home is exactly as described in the listing and photos. It is spacious and welcoming. It felt like we were at our own private resort. The lagoon pool and tiki hut/hammock area are perfect for a relaxing day at the pool or to unwind after a day of activities. It's close enough to take trips into Key West, but provides a quiet respite for those times when you want to relax. The owner does everything possible to make your stay special and perfect including great recommendations for activities and dining.

Best vacation home ever

  • 5 of 5

This was absolutely one of the best vacations we have ever had! The house is first class, from its tile work to the huge shower in the master bath. Very spacious. After exploring outdoors for the day spending time at your own private lagoon pool is amazing. Plan to return again soon. Key West a 20 minute drive.

Owner's Response: Thank-You for the great review. As our first ever vacation rental guests we are happy that you enjoyed our home. After a full day of exploring the Lower Keys and then coming home to a resort quality lagoon pool is really special. You and your family are welcome back anytime.
