A small piece of paradise with beautiful bay views in Hammer Point. The crystal clear waters surround this tropical (19 palm trees) remodeled mobile home with great dockage. Corner lot with 185' water front. Two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Fully furnished kitchen, large living area with large screen tv and stereo/dvd. Sit outside on the wraparound porch or inside watching the activities go by. Immaculate and well maintained.

About David Hess

My wife and I always wanted to have a vacation home on the water in the Florida Keys. The location needed to be close enough to our permanent home in order for us to drive after work for a long weekend.

David Hess purchased this house in 2008

Why David Hess chose Hammer Point

In 2004, we purchased a home in Key Largo and began learning more about the beautiful Keys. In 2008 we relocated upon finding Hammer Point. We immediately fell in love with the area, crystal waters, corner lot on the water and close proximity to everything. Only 13 miles south of our previous vacation home, and, it feels like a world apart.

What makes this house unique

The most enjoyable time my wife and I have is sitting on our wraparound porch in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the activities of the day (dolphins, manatees, birds, iguanas, and many other scenes of nature). Of course, our evening cocktail outside on the porch is a close second. In addition, the boating, fishing (back country, off shore and canal), jet skiing, wake boarding, snorkeling, kayaking and relaxing with our friends and family make our place a unique experience.

stunning setting wth sunset view over the bay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of March and brought our 23' bay boat with us. The stepdown concrete dock was perfect. It even has concrete steps into the clear canal water. That makes it easy to use the tandem kayak provided. The dock is frequented by manatee and large tarpon daily. Running to the bay side is you back yard. Ocean side is easily reached through Tavernier Creek. Dave, the owner, called in soon after our arrival to make sure all was well, and again towards the end of the trip. The neighborhood is going through an upscale transformation whereby all the older mobile homes are being replaced by large villas. I'm sure this will be on the owners mind, so enjoy this most idealistic setting while you can. We would return without question.

Spectacular keys treat for water oriented peeps

  • 5 of 5

What a great place ....simple basic super comfortable. If the weather is good this is a great base to enjoy the reef, off shore fishing, water sports and the local sandbars and tiki bars. If the weather picks up this is a great place to enjoy the sheltered swimming, snorkeling and hanging in the breeze on the covered porch with the spectacular sunrise and sunset views. The canal is crystal clear and full of sea life, manatee, mangrove snapper, hog fish, pinfish, stingray and tarpon. The steps into the water are so civilized for all ages. The many coconut palm trees are shady and romantic. We loved this slice of the keys.
