About the property

Spacious 2 Bedroom 2 Bath Condo Located Right At The Water's Edge! Sleeps 6.


NOTE: We are currently accepting only monthly rentals (28 days or longer). Please inquire for a quote.


Wake up to the sun rising over the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Watch heron fish for breakfast in the flats below as you drink your coffee. Stretch out on the balcony while flocks of pelicans soar above you and the rocks disappear and reappear with the tide below you. Sip a cocktail and watch the sail boats glide along the crystal blue sea at sunset.

This spacious condo is located right on the Atlantic Ocean and directly faces the water, with ocean views from the kitchen, living area, master bedroom and bathroom, and of course the large private balcony! Recently renovated and refurnished, it includes new, high-end furniture and modern electronics, appliances, and other amenities. You can't ask for a better pairing of comfort and natural beauty.

The condo complex is located in a quiet, secluded area and is adjacent to Oceanside Marina, one of Key West’s premier deep-water marinas. It is the perfect location to enjoy Key West’s best asset: the ocean. Bring your own boat and rent a slip at the marina or hire a charter just steps from your door. Whether you want to explore the endless islands in the Gulf or go out to catch your dinner, you’re in the right place. Oceanside Marina is “host to over 400 [International Game Fish Association] world records…more than any other marina in the United States!”



---- LOCATION & TRANSPORTATION: While our location provides an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean, you will not be in the middle of the action -- we are roughly 5 miles from Duval Street -- and you cannot get around easily on foot. We recommend having a car, although some will be happy with bikes or taking cabs. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with views of the sparking sea and bird and marine life, proximity to many marinas teeming with water activities, and a new, bright, well-appointed, and spacious apartment with the amenities of home and a pool to boot, we think you will be happy here. If you are looking to step outside and have bars, shops, restaurants, and people on your doorstep, you will probably not be happy here.

---- PARKING: The unit comes with one covered and assigned parking spot.

---- AGE RESTRICTION: No occupants under the age of 25 are allowed unless accompanied by a guardian.

---- GROUPS OF 5-6: This condo is best suited for groups of 4 or less. However, groups of 5 - 6 will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In such situations, a fee of $25 per person per night for the 5th and 6th guest will be added to the base rate.

---- USE OF EXTRA BEDS: Bedding for the lounges in the second bedroom is not typically accessible to guests. In situations where one or both of the lounges will be converted to beds, arrangements must be made in advance so that bedding can be provided. Please also be aware that these lounges must remain in the second bedroom at all times.

About Tess Stafford

Tess is from Key West and Scott is from Kentucky. A love of economics (yes, really) brought us together in graduate school in Texas. Since graduating, we have taken faculty positions at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

Tess Stafford purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tess Stafford chose Stock Island

Tess grew up on Boca Chica Key right on the ocean with a dock and a boat on her doorstep. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

What makes this condo unique

While the condo is new, clean, bright, spacious, well appointed, and so on, it is the view that makes this spot a real gem. It is truly a spectacular sight. The flats below are full of life: speedy little ducks, seagulls, heron, egrets, pelicans, and even sharks cruise around the flats. Farther out, sailboats and fishing boats fill the skyline. And the southern exposure means that the sun is visible from the balcony virtually all hours of day leaving a sparkling trail on the water. In fact, when we were visiting recently we spent a lot of time on the balcony and noticed that between the distance from the sun to the horizon, the jet ski tours and sunset sails, and the varying exposure of the rocks in the flats below due to the rising and falling tide, you could tell the time of day without ever having to check your watch!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I've read many of the 5 star reviews below, and while it may seem repetitive, we really liked the location, balcony/view, comfortable furniture, and well stock kitchen. My wife particularly liked the "reading nook" and chair, spent many an hour there. This felt like a home, the way I would equip it, not a rental.

What might be unique that I can add? Well, we booked this prior to Irma, with a start date about a month after Irma. Needless to say, there was a lack of info as to the condition of both the condo and the general area for a couple of weeks. Once it was clear the condo was fine (there were a few trim pieces off the building that need fixing if you look close) the question about what Key West would be like when we arrived remained. Despite being under no obligation to do so, Tess offered us the option of moving dates or a full refund if we'd prefer not to make the trip. We chose to stick with our original plan and are glad we did. We had no issues with shopping, going out, etc. The drive down (and sadly still there when we went back out) showed the destruction of the hurricane, and there are many people with a lot of work ahead of them.

To a person, any time we spoke to locals at a restaurant, bar, museum, or boat ride, they thanked us for coming and let us know how much they appreciated the business. Some of those folks have their own open issues to deal with regarding housing which could be significant.

If you're on the fence about a post Irma trip, GO!

Tess and Mimi were both very accommodating, and as gracious as any hosts I've had at rental properties. Book with confidence!

Wonderful stay at this well appointed, spacious condo.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views! Close proximity to Key West yet wonderfully peaceful after all the activities. Loved watching all the wildlife, boating activity and observing the US Navy flight operations. Definitely planning to stay again!

Can't go wrong with this condo rental - a defiinite 5 rating!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the month of February in Tess's condo and it lived up to everything noted in her detailed description. The view is wonderful and the facility is properly maintained. Furniture is high quality as is the kitchen and how it's stocked with whatever one would need. The wine refrigerator wasn't working at the time but that can happen with any appliance and didn't cause any inconvenience.

The pool was nice and included a hot tub. Because FL law won't allow grills on any condo deck, the two communal Weber gas grills were in great shape and used quite often. A bike was rented from We Cycle, which charged only $10/day that included dropping off and picking up the bike. It's a good way to get around Key West if the time required to get to and from isn't an issue. A scooter rental from A&M Scooters made it faster to get around. They pick you up and drop you off upon returning it so a great convenience. It was reasonably priced.

Mimi went out of her way to be certain we were comfortable and ensure all was to our liking. She was great in providing suggestions of things to do and where to visit.

The location is about a 20 minute scooter ride to downtown Key West but that wasn't an issue for us. The peace and serenity of the condo with its wonderful view provided the perfect balance to when downtown action was appealing. Also, having a fresh fish market (Fishbusterz) only a 10 minute walk from the condo was an added side benefit. We consumed lots of fresh seafood during our stay.

This rates a 5 out of 5 stars! Thank you, Tess and Mimi!

Beautiful view and couldn't of ask for anything more.

  • 5 of 5

We were a last minute renter for January and the condo was amazing. We sat on the balcony every morning for coffee and every evening for a cocktail. We loved seeing the naval jets flying and the quaint area restaurants. Kitchen was stocked and every appliance you would want is here. I loved it!

Great place with a view!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there for a month and it was absolutely amazing. There was construction going on (supposed to be complete soon...and it's starting to look like it! Tess & Mimi were both great to work with and were always available. Just rent a me, it's worth it and way easier than you're matter what time of day! The pool is closed after sunset which was a bummer but understandable as it would be pretty dark (no lighting). It would be great if they added that ;) Place was clean and the kitchen was setup perfectly. The only recommendation would be to add/leave some space for food being brought in. You're currently left with counter space as all cabinets are full...which is awesome because they have EVERYTHING, but is a tad incoveinent.

Absolutely amazing! Everything and more!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was large and beautifully furnished. Gourmet kitchen with everything a chef could want to prepare lovely meals. The deck was amazing- large, beautifully furnished, and although situated between 2 other units completely private. Just perfect for quiet, early morning sunrise coffee and relaxing with cocktails in the evening. Our family loved every minute. The personal touches when we arrived like fresh flowers in every room and several types of coffee to get us going on our first morning delighted us. Five star all the way! Tess and Mimi went out of their ways to help us with lots of information on local restaurants and services. Very personal and generous hosts. We will be returning!
