About the Property

Comfortable Clean Cozy 2/1 with all the amenities you expect for your home away

We love Venture Out and hope you'll experience the beautiful Florida Keys like a Floridian. Our little piece of paradise has so much to offer, whether your here for a weekend, a week or a month. The cottage and Venture Out has all the amenities you might find elsewhere, except its all contained in a safe and secure setting. Our home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, 1 queen bed and 2 singles along with a leather couch which opens to a full sleeper. The home sits on a 60' wide canal with direct access to open water. There are TV's and wifi available for you to enjoy, along with games and bicycles and kayaks to explore the compound and the local waters.

Enjoy coffee on the 35' dock at sunrise, or Margaritas watching the sun go down. Bring your own boat or have one delivered to the dock. You can drop in a line right from the dock and catch dinner if you wish, or experience the many local restaurants specializing in local seafood, most will cook your catch. No fast food here!

We have our own Marina and store, tennis court, basketball court, bocce ball, putting green, Olympic pool, kiddie pool, jacuzzi, playground and picnic area with Tiki hut. We even have our own post office for those that want to send postcards of their stay in the Keys! During the season enjoy pancake breakfasts-all you can eat, and Happy hour on Fridays too!

Close by are many great places for snorkeling, diving, fishing including world famous Looe Key Reef. We have access to both The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico for great fishing. Only miles to Bahia Honda State Park and Fort Zachary Taylor Park. Both of these attractions draw people from all over the world. Each has a wonderful concession stand which makes them great for an all day trip. Many restaurants, shopping and a variety of night life only 15 miles away at Key West. Experience Sunset at Mallory Square or have a beer at Sloppy Joes. Walk through Hemingways home or visit the treasures at Mel Fishers museum. All of these things are at your door and only minutes away.

You can bring your boat, or rent from one of the local rental companies, some will deliver to our dock for you. No charge for putting your boat in at the Marina at Venture Out. (the park charges a daily fee for trailer and extra car parking) These is a resort charge when you check in, payable to the park, cash only.

Enjoy your time at Venture Out, we are happy to host you for your stay in the Keys.

So many things to do in the beautiful Florida Keys, rent a boat in Summerland, or rent mine right from our dock. Visit Marathon and the Turtle Hospital or Dolphin Research Center and swim with Dolphins. Learn to Kite Board, Paddle board, or dive at one of the great reefs like Looe Reef or Bahia Honda State park, or visit Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park in Key West. There you can rent jet skis or visit the museums and aquarium, or just do the Pub crawl. Ask and we can give you many referrals for a variety of things to do.
