Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are from Florida but now live in Texas until we retire to the Keys. We have been visiting the Keys since 1972. We have stayed everywhere in the Keys but wanted to retire in the Lower Keys.

Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key, FL, USA:
This is our second home and not an investment property. We have been making upgrades since we bought it four years ago and are now advertising it as a vacation place. We plan to make upgrades each year. We would like you to feel like our guests. We care what you think. We want you to feel like it is your vacation home as well while you sit under the coconut palms relaxing in the breeze. We have great, friendly neighbors as well. The street is a quiet cul-de-sac.
