Beautiful home on pilings overlooking a clear swimming canal with direct ocean access and easy bay access via Tavernier Creek. This is our primary residence that we rent out during the summer months while we travel with our children. We rent out the main house which is upstairs. It is a 3 bedroom/2 bath. There is an apartment underneath the house that we plan to keep for ourselves as a place to come back to briefly between trips. We would consider renting both upstairs and downstairs if interested.
The upstairs has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has an organic queen-size bed, it's own bathroom with separate tub, shower and vanity. The second and third bedrooms have twin beds with pull-out trundles under each bed. The hall bath is spacious with a shower/bathtub combo. The laundry is also located in the hallway bathroom and features a front-loading washer & dryer. The living & kitchen areas are open with vaulted ceilings. There is a pull-out sofa sleeper to sleep two more people if needed. Extra bed linens are found in the storage coffee table. All of the living room furniture is slip-covered for easy washing. The kitchen is modern with granite countertops. It is fully stocked with dishes and cookware. There is a breakfast bar that seats four. There is also a dining table on the screened in porch that seats eight overlooking the canal.
This home is located on a beautiful, clear deep-water canal. It has lots of tropical fish, lobster and occasionally a manatee or two! Guests may bring their boat and leave dockside during their stay. There is room for a 25 foot boat. There is also room in the driveway (fenced) to park your vehicle and trailer. There is additional parking street-side. There is an outdoor shower, sink, fish-cleaning station and dining table dockside that also seats eight guests. Guests have use of two kayaks (red & green), a red paddleboard, a metal canoe, rock-climbing wall, hammock, Charcoal BBQ grill, and floats.
There are tons of great restaurants with amazing water views nearby. You will also be walking distance to fishing and diving charters, jet ski rentals, boats, paddle boards and kayaks.
We are located about an hour 15 minutes from Miami International Airport and about 2 hours from Key West, right off of Overseas Hwy, one of the most beautiful drives in the United States.

- This home is our primary residence, there is a little apartment underneath the house. We plan to travel most of the summer, however, we may be back periodically between our trips to stay in the apartment. If you are interested in renting the entire property, please ask. We are extremely laid back so feel free to enjoy the property as your own. My husband builds wooden boats for his hobby, so please enjoy looking at them. His workshop is under our carport. If we are back between trips, you may see him working on his boats. Please keep small children away from the tools & building materials. Thank you! ...moreless

About the owner: My husband and I moved to Islamorada three years ago after he finished 18 years with the Navy. He is now an airline pilot. I am primarily a stay-at-home mom (we have two daughters), however, I have 11 years of experience in property management. I teach yoga on the beach and I love photography. This home is our full-time residence, the house is on pilings with a studio apartment underneath. We rent out the upstairs while our kids are on breaks from school. During the summer months, we plan to travel a lot with our children, so we will keep the apartment for ourselves as a place to stay between our trips. So you may or may not see us around! We would consider renting the entire property, just ask! :)
