About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10, Canal Front

Amazing canal front 3 bed 2 bath open concept house located in prestigious community of Summerland Key Cove. It is the first canal from open water and one of just a few flow-through canals providing excellent water quality. The canal is deep and wide. Expect to see lobsters, crabs and other sea life on your 80 ft. sea wall. You will be surrounded by million dollar homes and just a few minutes boat ride from open water in the Gulf and Atlantic.

Property is close enough to Key West to matter (20 miles) but far enough away for R&R (rest and relaxation). Being on the end of the Key, prevents the irritating noise of Hwy 1 traffic, which is rare to find.

Boat ramp (small boats & kayaks)

Kayaks (one 2 seater and one 1 seater)


Deep freezer (7cubic ft.) great for bait.

Handicap accessible

Large downstairs enclosure perfect for storage or additional air mattress

Great location, quiet neighborhood, easy access to Atlantic and backcountry

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this property twice now and really enjoy it. Very clean flow through canal is nice for kids swimming. Not too close and not too far from Key West. Boat ramp on property works great for smaller skiff. Minutes from grocery store, gas and several nice restaurants. Owners are friendly and available. My wife and I have spent a considerable amount of time in the Keys over the last 20 years and this has been one of our favorite rentals.

Excellent neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We spent most of the month of November here and really enjoyed the property. It's in a great central location between Key West and Marathon if you want entertainment, yet is tucked away on a dead end street if you want peace and quiet. Kayaks and bikes were fun and the canal was awesome for days on the water.

We had a great time.

My Ideal Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this house during the month of July the last couple years, and it has always been the best possible experience. We have stayed in every area of the Keys over the years (Marathon, Islamorada, Big Pine Key), but Summerland Key is our favorite, and this is the best house we have stayed in. The neighborhood is quiet, beautiful, and the nicest around, and the house is spacious and immaculate. The water access can't be beat, and it is great to be close to both Key West and our favorite locations for fishing. The small pool served our needs better than we expected; this house and property is the perfect setup for our large group. Any time a slight issue has arisen, the owners are incredibly responsive and helpful, and they are simply wonderful people all-around. We couldn't be happier, and hope to return next year to make more wonderful Keys memories in this lovely home!

Lovely home; Great location; Friendly neighbors

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 months here and loved every minute. We would have booked it again for next season, but VRBO had it rented before we even arrived. Great view of the canal and peak-a-boo of the bay from balcony. We used the kayaks frequently and had great fun. There were bikes available as well, however, we brought our own with us. Plenty of room in the home and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware. The owner, Luke, is great to work with and very responsive to any issues. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful for any questions. Great place!

The property was very nice. We liked that it was halfway between Marathon and Key west.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very roomy for us. We liked the extra room downstairs that can be used as an extra bedroom or for storage. The area was very quiet and peaceful. We had a really nice time.
