About the Property

Villa, 1 Bedroom (Sleeps 2); 2 Bedroom (Sleeps 4)

Sunset Villas, located on a small quaint island called Conch Key (mile marker 63 - between Marathon and Islamorada), offers quality, affordable OPEN WATERFRONT vacation rentals. Our one or two bedroom villas have complimentary deep-water dockage (park your boat right in front of your villa!) and use of our on-site boat ramp. Located just west of Long Key Channel, you can be in the Atlantic Ocean in 5 minutes for fishing, lobstering, snorkeling and diving. We also offer discounted fishing packages in the off season and can refer you to local boat rentals or dive/snorkel charters. Please note that we do not allow Jet Skis at our location.

The one bedroom (700 square feet) has a King size bed as well as a pull-out futon. The two bedroom (900 square feet) has a king size bed in one bedroom and two double beds in the other bedroom, as well as a futon in the living room. Each villa has a spacious living & dining area and a full size kitchen. We know you will be very happy with the size and quality of our accommodations.

We provide our guests with a comfortable outdoor area, which includes a gas grill, hammock, a tree top deck, and two bicycles for touring the island and fishing bridge. We also have an ocean kayak available for guest use free of charge! We have swim ladders from our docks for snorkeling and swimming in the clear waters that surround our location.

Give us a call, send us an email or visit our website: SUNSETVILLAS.com - we think we are the best OPEN WATERFRONT vacation rental around!

Please note that we do our best to maintain the online calendar, but please call to double check availability information. Since the online calendar refers to both of our villas a quick call or e-mail is needed to determine whether the 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom is available for your dates of interest. Please recognize standard rates and off season rates given in the "automatic quotes" are for 1-bedroom villa only. 2-bedroom off season (mid-Aug. to mid-Dec.) rates are $160/night or $995/wk and $200/night or $1,295/wk in season (mid-Dec. to mid-Aug.).

***We currently have our upstairs 1-bedroom available for seasonal monthly rental (January through March or April). Please call us for an appointment to come have a look at the Crow's Nest. Pictures and a description of The Crow's Nest is available at www.sunsetvillas.com ***

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Sunset Villas, which was formerly known and operated as Harry's Fishing Lodge, is owned and operated by Capt. Bill and Katrina Wiatt. Bill and Katrina met at Virginia Tech in the '80s, lived in Texas during the '90s, then 'kicked the corporate life' and purchased this beautiful Conch Key property in 1998.

Why the Owner Chose Conch Key, Duck Key, FL, USA:
Location, Location, Location! Bill had the vision within 5 minutes of walking on to this property ... and Sunset Villas was born soon after. Boaters, water lovers and fishermen alike keep coming back, year after year, to enjoy our piece of paradise on Conch Key - it is truly a Place for the Chosen View.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Sunset Villas on Conch Key offers some of the most fabulous OPEN WATER sunset views in the entire Florida Keys! We literally can see the sunset 365 days of the year ... each and every one is unique and special in its' own way. We also have boat dockage directly on the Gulf of Mexico with access to the Atlantic Ocean in less than 5 minutes via the Long Key Channel Bridge. Conch Key still has the feel of the 'old-time' Keys, so come and visit and see why we have over 85% return customers staying with us.
