"Key's Life" vacation home is more than a house to us, it's a lifestyle that embraces the island life and mindset of the Florida keys. The tropical breeze will greet you as you arrive at "Key's Life". The screened porch will be the perfect place to enjoy your fresh tropical margarita while watching some of the best sunsets in the lower keys over the open waters of Sarcarma Bay, also known as Cudjoe Bay. Once the sun goes down slip into the hot tub and unwind from the day's activities.
This 3 bedroom 2 bath house has a updated kitchen with all the extras to cook your catch or prepare a gourmet meal. If you enjoy the thrill of the grill, there is a new stainless grill down stairs for your enjoyment. The master bathroom is newly renovated and there is new flooring thru out the house. The open floor plan and water views will be a lasting memory for years to come.
For the boating enthusiast , the dock and kayak launch are on protected canal waters. We have 2 sit on top kayak's for your use. While at the dock enjoy the sand area with plenty of chairs to soak up the sun. The 2 brand new bikes available will cruise you around the many miles of bike trails on the island.
No vacation would be complete without indulging in a visit to Key West with the many restaurants and history of the Keys. Cudjoe Key is 23 miles from Key West where you can visit the Southern Most Point of the United States, ride the Conch Train or Trolley for a historic tour of the island or explore the shops and bars of Duval Street. Sunset celebration at the world famous Mallory Square is a must do! Just 15 miles north is Bahia Honda state park and is a great way to spend a day. We are sure you will find the "Key's Life" home will provide you with access to the best fishing, swimming, snorkeling/diving and site seeing in the Florida Keys! Plus we will provide you with vacation information to help get you acquainted to the area.
Just in case you can not totally disconnect from the mainland, there is a wireless internet connection and TV for you to enjoy (ATT Uverse).
Whether you are looking for ocean adventures or a quiet place to relax, "Key's Life" is the place. You are not just "renting" a house you are renting a lifestyle! Come enjoy your vacation in the Florida Keys and experience "Key's Life" for yourself!!!

Clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, great location, responsive and friendly owners.
We stayed at this home recently and found it to be the cleanest, and one of the most comfortable, homes that we have stayed in during our eight years of renting vacation homes in the Keys. The house is beautifully decorated and the owners are very responsive if you should need anything or have any questions. They were wonderful to work with from start to finish. The location at the end of the street and canal, and overlooking the bay, made for great boating access and spectacular sunsets. This was a very nice place to stay while enjoying our time in the Keys.
A Wonderful Experience
Our stay was wonderful! The house was nicely decorated and in great shape, inside and out. The sunset views were beautiful from the screened porch. We really enjoyed boating and kayaking from the docks on the property.
The nice kitchen and new grill allowed us to cook at home. There are also several nice restaurants (some with music) nearby, and of course with Key West so close, the options are endless!
The owners were extremely helpful and responsive . They provided lots of good information about the area before our arrival and answered all my questions both before and during the stay. They were very nice and wanted us to enjoy ourselves - which we did!!
Thank you Barbara and Greg for the great review. We are always glad that our guest enjoyed our home. Please feel free to contact us for any future travel plans the Keys.
Slice of Paradise
Fabulous home in the Lower Keys ! Great views from inside and outside the house. The screened in deck was my favorite spot for relaxing and enjoying the sights. The home is spacious, nicely decorated and the kitchen well provisioned.
Nice neighborhood located close to many good restaurants,bars and water sports.Nice trails close by for hiking and bike riding.
I can't say enough good things about the owners.They genuinely care about your experience while staying at their property.Rod provided good information prior to our journey and checked in with us during our stay to make sure everything was satisfactory and to offer tips for our stay.
Counting the days until our return !
Thank you Ray for the wonderful review, Barbara and I always enjoy hearing about your stay at our home. We want everyone to be able to experience the Florida Keys and have a comfortable house to relax at after a busy day. We look forward to having you back again next January.
Fantastic property with amenities and one of the best sunset views on Cudjoe Bay.
I've been staying in the Keys for 30 years. Rented this property. Loved it! The owner is easy to contact and makes sure you have a great time. Home is better furnished than many/most mid-upper scale rentals. It's at the end of the canal facing Cudjoe Bay - for sunrise, the sun comes up behind the house and you can see into all the reef/rock water in the Bay; for sunsets, you can sit on the screen-enclosed deck with the three overhead fans turning and thoroughly enjoy God's gift of creation.
House comes with two single person kayaks and four bicycles in the downstaris storage room. Two outside hoses make boat clean up and fish cleaning easy. Also, the downstairs outside shower is delightful. The home does not have a pool but we have one at our home - so we're not looking to swim in a pool in the Keys; snorkeling on the reefs - by all means Yes. The home does have a outside hot tub on the patio. This would be fantastic in the "cooler" Winter months.
Home amenities are excellent - fully stocked kitchen - silverware, plates, glasses, coffee mugs and nice coffee maker. You don't have to bring any utensils. Nice big refrigerator. There is a freezer on the patio that you can use to store things. The owner lets you store frozen bait in the freezer - he includes a large tupperware container in which to put frozen bait. We kept large bags of ice to freeze and refreeze after a day on the boat in the cooler. Froze our fish fillets and 70(+) lobster tails.
We put our 20' foot boat in the canal - nice easy channel out. Launch at Cudjoe Gardens. 20-25 minutes to the reef if the waves are 1-2' or less. Perhaps a little more time with bigger waves and depending on the size of your boat.
The canal has some resident mangrove snapper (hard to catch but possible), schools of parrot fish, four-eyed and Spanish butterfly fish. Bridge fishing at the Bow channel or Kemp channel bridges is 5 minutes away for those wanting to avoid seasickness.
Cooked all our own fish so didn't eat out much.
Cudjoe Sales is the best place to go for any fishing gear - 5 minutes away on US 1.
Can buy bait at the Cudjoe Gardens Marina 8a-6p or the SugarLoaf KOA marina (opens at 7a).
Found a whole bunch of conch shells without live animals - brought some home and left a few around the plants/palms. Absolutely lovely home.
We will seriously consider renting this house again in the future.
Thank you Eddie and family for a great review. It is always a pleasure to have wonderful guest that can enjoy peaceful family time and the Florida Keys. We look forward to having you and your family back again next year.

Owners "Keys life"
Couldn't have been happier!
Stop looking, you've found the best you're going to get! I recently rented this home for 2 months. I wanted to have the summer of a lifetime with my family. Well, if swimming with dolphins right outside the back of the house, catching fresh lobsters in the bay, having your boat 10 feet away on your own private dock, watching SPECTACULAR sunsets on your screened in back porch, world class fishing and Key West just minutes away isn't your thing, you'll hate this place! Seriously though, everything was perfect. The house was very nicely appointed with everything you could possibly need including a fully equipped kitchen and 3 very comfortable beds. The location couldn't have been any better if you tried. The corner lot provides all the privacy you need and really makes you feel like you're in your own little world. After being there for 2 months I never wanted to leave. From the people at Cudjoe Gardens Marina, The Square Grouper (impossible to have a meal less than spectacular). Cassey's Grill, No Name Pub, Looe Key Tiki......I could go on forever, but you get the point, Cudjoe Key is the best! Needless to say, we'll be back very soon and won't hesitate to rent this house again. Connie and Rod, thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay at your wonderful little slice of paradise and you'll be seeing us again.....SOON!
We Wish This Was Our House !
We just want to say Thank You to the owners for providing such a beautiful vacation rental. We've been staying in the Low Keys for seven years now, and have always stayed on a different key. Cudjoe by far is our favorite key with it's close proximity to all of our favorite things, yet being peaceful and quiet. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a pelican who stayed with us for a few days ... we enjoyed the company! We found the house to be very spacious and comfortable. Kayaks are perfect for paddling the shallow waters of the bay , and the bicycles are great for cruising around the neighborhood. The house is neat, clean and modern inside and out, and very well cared for. The sunsets at Keys Life are the main attraction. Dinner and drinks every night watching the sun go down while a neighbor blows a traditional conch shell salute to say goodbye to the sun, just perfect ! We spent our mornings and evenings just looking out at Sacarma Bay from the deck watching the boats , birds and fish. The area boasts several very good restaurants as well as excellent fish markets if you prefer to cook at home. BPK is only minutes away for shopping, but you can find everything you need on Summerland Key. KW is less than a 1/2 hour, Bahia Honda SP is 20 minutes away. We really enjoyed our stay at Keys Life and are booking again for next year!
Thank you for the kind words about our home. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back next year!
