Studio Apartment W/Pool, Spa & Tiki! Dock Space for Your Boat on clean canal!

This is a studio apartment underneath our home. The house is on pilings, we live upstairs and rent the apartment, which is at ground level with it's own private entrance. The apartment is basically like a hotel room, beautifully decorated in Tommy Bahama furnishings. It has a new, queen size bed plus a daybed that turns into a king-size bed. The room can comfortably sleep 2 adults & 2 children. There is a mini kitchenette with mini-refrigerator, microwave & keurig coffee maker.

There is a full-size refrigerator & BBQ grill on the back porch for guest use. There is also a sink, fish cleaning station with hose and shower dockside which overlooks a clear swimming canal with direct ocean and easy bay access.

Bring your boat for world-class fishing, diving & snorkeling! Great restaurants & shopping nearby! Canal has tons of little tropical fish, lobster and occasionally a manatee or two! Property has tons of tropical foliage & about 25 coconut palm trees. Brand new free-form pool with heater & chiller along with a spa and tiki hut.

My husband and I live upstairs with our 2 daughters (ages 13 & 15) and our small pocket beagle dog (10 pounds). We keep a busy family schedule, so you may not see too much of us especially through weekdays since we will be working, going to school & busy with after-school activities. But on the weekends and possibly some evenings, we anticipate having friends and family over for pool parties and backyard BBQs. And of course our apartment guests are welcome to join in the fun!

About Heather Head

My husband and I moved to Islamorada five years ago to be near family here in the Keys. Tom was a fighter pilot in the Navy and recently retired with 20 years of service. He is now an airline pilot. I teach yoga and dance at Founders Park here in Islamorada. I also manage other rental properties that we own in Northwest Florida. This home is our full-time residence, the house is on pilings with a studio apartment underneath.

Heather Head purchased this Studio in 2013

Why Heather Head chose Tavernier

The perfect location!!! We are located right at Tavernier Creek with instant ocean access and super fast bay access via Tavernier Creek. We love being on the water! There is an amazing breakfast & lunch place, Made to Order, that we love to canoe & kayak to. There are also lots of mangrove trails to explore by water. There are tons of exceptional restaurants just a short drive away with absolutely breathtaking views! The beautiful reefs of the Florida Keys are just 3 miles away! Snorkel, dive & fishing charters are nearby. We have a brand new island inspired free-form swimming pool. It is heated & chilled with a waterfall, suntan ledge, spa, tiki hut and beautiful landscaping.

What makes this Studio unique

Dock space available to keep your boat right at the house. Available for guest use: Pool, Spa, Tiki Hut, Kayaks, Paddleboard, Hammock, Fire Pit, BBQ Grill, Beach Chairs & Floats. There is also places within walking distance to rent jet skis, paddle boards & kayaks. There is also a dive center and deep sea fishing charters nearby.

                                                                  The home was beautiful and very clean. We are a family of four and invited two extra teens. We were all very comfortable. We brought our 20 ft boat and there was plenty of dock space as well as room on the property for our trailer. The dock is big enough for a larger boat as well. We used the kayaks too! The location is perfect for boating on bayside or oceanside since it's right off of Tavernier Creek. We would definitely return and recommend to others vacationing in the Keys.

                                                                  Lare Z.PSl Florida

                                                                  The home is perfect for a Keys getaway. Location is great to get to ocean or gulf side, with bait shop and boat gas station right around the corner. Home is nicely decorated, with large porch and dock area. We had great weather, and got to snorkel and dive the nearby reefs, just minutes away. We recommend this property for families.
