Located in a quiet neighborhood on a deepwater canal, this home is within five miles of Sombrero Beach and Coco Plum Beach.

Driftwood art, glass-top tables, leather chairs, and a custom, rounded breakfast bar are some of the thoughtful furnishings in the home. The spacious living room area offers several sectional couches for lounging and a 46-inch wall-mounted flatscreen cable-equipped TV with a DVD player.

The kitchen features modern appliances for baking, roasting, and sauteing hearty fare. There's also an outdoor gas grill for barbecuing fresh seafood or shish kabobs.

Sleep comfortably on a king bed, a queen bed, or a twin-size love seat in either of the bedrooms. There is a new queen sleeper sofa in the living room. This home will accommodate up to seven guests. There are two bathrooms as well. For a small nightly fee you can bring along up to two well-behaved dogs.

About Vacasa, FL - Florida Keys Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family���s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Property was nice except we couldn’t use the detached bedroom due to bugs and mildew odors.

  • 3 of 5

My son was going to put his luggage in the detached room when he saw the bugs in it. That and the mildew smell made him decide to sleep on the couch for the duration of our trip. When we called to complain we were told it was ok. (Not really in my opinion). The refrigerator wasn’t working properly either. I paid way too much for this house especially since I could not even use all of it

Make sure you purchase the trip insurance

  • 1 of 5

Heartless, my husband had an unexpected return of his cancer that deemed it impossible to go on our trip. I tried to see if they would refund a week before the reservation, but they wouldn’t.

Main house inside was very nice but had little sugar ant every where location was nice six houses out from gulf. A/C worked great. Third bedroom was outside in a shack attached to garage hot musty and a horrible squeeky bunk bed. The concrete in the back was pure slippery green Algae. The screend in porch's roof leaks so bad everything on the table got soaked when in rained . Cheap place in the keys but will definitely pay a little extra do get something nicer.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of the home for lobster and fishing on the bayside. Very nice to have a covered fish cleaning station.
