About Van A. Snider

We are the three children of a wonderful man, a World War 2 Veteran who witnessed the raising of the American Flag at Iwo Jima when he was 19 years old, who had a lifelong passion for fishing and family. His favorite place to revisit was right here in Key Largo. He had many wonderful friends here in Key Largo. He purchased this property in 2013, and until his death at age 92, oversaw every detail of the renovation and new construction. It is with a great sense of pride that we host families here on Dad's property, because we know how much he loved sharing it. P.S. Our Mom is still kicking at 92 (She and Dad were married 70 years), and she too loves it down here.

Van A. Snider purchased this house in 2013

Why Van A. Snider chose Anglers Park

This property as well as Quiescence Dive Company (Captain Rob Bleser) next door was the base for many a memorable fishing trip for my Dad and his good friend Dr. Dave Bleser (Rob's Dad who is 93). For over 30 years, they made annual pilgrimages to Shark River in the Everglades for a couple of weeks of the best fishing in the world (According to my Dad), with lifelong friends. Mr. Alton Wells (Who lived the last 30 plus years of his life on this property) was always willing to let them park additional boats in his slip, in exchange for the latest great fishing story over a beer. There is something about the Florida Keys, that I think you will agree, will keep you coming back time and time again.

What makes this house unique

You will be hard pressed to find two acres on the water (facing west) with large private boat slip. This property sat quiet for the last 60 years, shielded from the scourges of modern society until our recent renovations. There is much History on this site. Vintage cast iron street lights reported from Georgia adorn the circle drive. Beautiful mature trees. Unbelievable views of the evening sunset. Each one more beautiful than the last. Creating life long memories with family, children and/or friends. Everything you need for the time of your life is right here.

Beautiful Getway - Not Far From Miami

  • 5 of 5

Van has a beautiful property right in the heart of Key Largo. Easy to get to from Miami airport, this is a little oasis tucked away on a large property close to dining, shopping, excursions and the John Pennekamp state park (read the wiki on the park, very cool). Some of the best nightlife in Key Largo is only a short walk away. During the day you can hire a boat (try Capt Sterling's Eco Tour which leaves from nearby Sundowners), go snorkeling in John Pennekamp state park (or take a guided nature hike if the wind has cancelled snorkeling!), or buy a day pass to the pool at Jimmy Johnson's resort which is also a quick walk from the property. Mostly this group of ladies liked to sit on the private beach with cocktails and talk each other and to the iguanas in the mangroves. The house is beautifully appointed, with modern fixtures and appliances, great sheets and plenty of bathroom space for a big crowd. Great job Van and we hope to be back some day!

Best -- Ellen and the January traveling crew.

Amazing, Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly a gem. After a week on one of the worlds largest cruise ships our stay here was a relaxing end to our trip. The location is fantastic and allowed us easy access to Key West, the everglades and local snorkeling. The large home is beautiful and well designed. The conch house is also very nice and cozy and worked well for our friends that couldn't navigate stairs well. We can't wait to return to this beautiful piece of paradise!
