Overview

About the property

Colorful, yet practical 2 bedroom 2 bath with stocked kitchen for gourmet cooks!

This home is in a great location in Venture Out with easy and quick access to open water. As the new owners in May 2014, we updated with fresh paint and all new family room furniture, including a very comfortable leather couch and small size leather recliner. There's also a new flat screen tv in the family room and flat screen tvs in each bedroom. Cable with an upgraded channel package and WIFI are included. We've added a good bit of new bedding, including pillows/sheets/mattress pads. A new refrigerator and new air conditioner were both installed in 2013. And a new dishwasher was installed in 2014. We have three bikes, two with baskets if you want to ride over and buy anything at the marina store. The home is a two bedroom, two full baths cottage - perfect for 2 to 4 people (any more than 4, it's too crowded. Therefore, we accept up to 4 people only). It's on a wide deep water canal with a 35’ dock and an open water view. And only six houses from that open water!

The house is a charming and happy place. It has true Keys character, as it was originally decorated by a spirited artist and an array of tropical colors abounds throughout. You'll feel like you're on a vacation in the Caribbean even if it's raining. The kitchen comes fully stocked with all the utensils, dishes, pots/pans, and small appliances you need to prepare a gourmet meal (including a standing Kitchen Aid mixer). You'll be impressed! There are plenty of quality linens and towels for a comfortable stay. Rattan ceiling fans are in every room and the floor is completely tiled throughout. A small, upright bait freezer is installed under the deck. Even though we have a wonderful, responsive onsite property manager, we are active owners, coming down twice a year to make sure the contents of the house and grounds are being maintained and in tip top shape!

The 35' seawall has a swim ladder, dock posts, cleats, fish cleaning station, and a concrete picnic table. The covered deck has a view of the ocean and two picturesque canals. You get to see the sunrise on your left and the sunset on your right (one of the prettiest panoramic sunset views in Venture Out in my opinion!). An electric grill is provided. We have a dock box containing swim noodles, snorkel equipment, a couple of beach chairs, and a few tennis rackets.

Please note that there is an entry fee for our gated community that you will have to pay at the front gate. This gives you FULL access to all of the resort’s amenities. The resort amenities include: 24 hour security, lighted tennis courts, Olympic-sized heated pool (the cleanest pool I've ever seen!) kiddie pool, spa Jacuzzi, ping pong, bocce ball courts, shuffleboard courts, golf putting area, lighted basketball court, children's playground, pool table, darts, marina complete with two boat ramps, a free pressure washer, gas, store, ATM and fish cleaning station, open water picnic areas, ocean front tiki hut, lending library, post office - and MORE - all in a wonderfully managed community where you can feel safe and secure.

There is no charge for launching your boat at the Venture Out Marina. It's also a great spot for kayaks. You can swim or fish from the open water areas. And there is a big TIKI HUT on the open water where picnicking is perfect.

Within several minutes there are some great restaurants. A couple of our favorites are the Square Grouper (right here on Cudjoe Key!) for all you gourmet foodies out there and Boondocks on Ramrod Key for a more casual, open air atmosphere with tons of flat screen tvs for watching your favorite sports teams. Boondocks also has a mini golf course for added fun. Last but not least, between Cudjoe and Summerland Key, is a fantastic little bakery called the Sugerloaf Food Company. Excellent high quality gourmet desserts and sandwiches, open for breakfast and lunch. And of course, Key West is only 20 minutes away for first class shopping and dining.

The Marina Store within walking distance in the resort stocks many necessities, such as soft drinks, beer, and wine.

SORRY, THIS IS A NO SMOKING / NO PET HOUSE.

Trailer parking is an additional fee. Lobster Season, Christmas & New Years require a 7 day minimum stay. Security deposit required.

About Waterfront Keys Realty

We are from South Carolina and have been making annual treks to the Keys for over 20 years now. It was our dream to have our own little vacation home and we finally made it come true in 2013. We always liked the peace and quiet on Cudjoe Key, especially in Venture Out. The amenities in VO make it just about perfect and each time we come down, it gets harder and harder to leave. In fact, my love of the Keys inspired me to write and publish two historical fiction novellas, both incorporating true Keys history. Check them out on Amazon! VINDICATION KEY and INDIAN KEY. Both are available in paperback and Kindle.

Waterfront Keys Realty purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Waterfront Keys Realty chose Lower Keys Area

First and foremost, a fantastic location! We are six houses from open water, with quick and easy access to the Atlantic. The tropical colors inside and outside the house make it feel like your on vacation all the time, rain or shine. You get the sunrise on your left and sunset on your right sitting on our cozy porch. One of the prettiest panoramic sunset views in Venture Out!

What makes this cottage unique

We have a wonderful property manager, Waterfront Keys Realty. Should you choose to book our place, please call them with the phone number provided, as they handle the entire booking process. Their office is in Venture Out, so if you have any sudden issues or problems, they are right there to help. My husband and I are active owners, and try to make it down twice a year to maintain and update the house outside of the property manager. So you can be assured little things like bed pillows, sheets, towels, dishes, etc. are being assessed and replaced as needed.

Awesome week getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family was lucky enough to get the perfect Florida Keys getaway home. The home was abosultely wonderful. The brilliant tropical colors makes you feel like you are in paradise. Our boat was docked steps away. The home was extremely well maintained. It was more than adequately supplied with linens, towels,cookware, and comfortable beds. The home was exactly like the pictures. It was an easy 20 minute boat ride to Looe Key and 30 minutes to the Gulf. We felt very safe with our children in the gated community. The amenties on the property were very clean and convienient. Robin was very helpful and quick to respond to my questions about the property. I have never been more satified with a rental like this one. I highly recomend this rental to anyone looking for a quite relaxing Keys getaway. Thank you Robin for sharing your home with us!!

Cutest Little Getaway Right on the Water!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I loved our stay at this rental. The decor was definitely something that made us happy every time we walked through the doors with the bright and inviting colors. It had everything we needed and made our stay at the Keys a wonderful experience.

House in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here several times and it never disappoints! The beds are comfy and it has every amenity you could want! We always bring our boat to dive and fish. The boat ramp is awesome and there's a pressure washer to rinse the trailer and boat ... A huge + for us along with the boat dock right outside the back door! I would highly recommend staying there (as long as it's not the week we stay there LOL)
