This house is in the perfect location for a family keys getaway. It is located on Plantation Key on the oceanside. This means you are a stones throw away from the ocean on a deep water canal with no bridges to the ocean and a 70 foot sea wall with a fish cleaning station at your back door. You are minutes from the crystaline waters off the reefs and the world class blue water deep sea fishing of the Florida Keys. If you are a backwater fisherman then you can drop your boat at a nearby marina and keep the trailer on the side of the house. You have the best of both worlds because you have access to oceanside fishing or back country fishing through Tavernier Creek bridge.
Around the corner is a great little shallow water basin where you can kayak and see the bonefish tailing. We have 4 other worthwhile kayak mini trips you can take from the house. Pick one and go. Info for your trips is detailed at the house. Right outside the channel you have Pennekamp State park to the North and prime fishing grounds and reefs to the south.
Within walking distance (1/2 mile) you have a dive shop with dive trips, 4 restaurants, and a grocery store. Within a mile you have a CVS, movie theater, post office, a big grocery store, a Dollar Store, and a multitude of great restaurants for dining. A couple of miles to the south you have Islamorada's Founder's Park with an olympic size pool with lifeguards, a water park, basketball and tennis courts, walking and jogging courses, a playground and a beach.
Wow! The upstairs is really nice. Not what I expected for an old keys house. Very modern,everything is new clean. Great area in a quiet residential neighborhood. Awesome restaurant nearby for breakfast called the Tropical cafe within walking distance. I highly recommend. Only thing missing was a spa which the owner told me he was putting in shortly.
If you are looking for a nice relaxing week, weekend, or maybe even a further extended stay, look no further, you have found Paradise. This great location is close to supermarkets, drug stores, restaurants, and attractions. I highly reccomend this house if you want to be a tourist but live like the locals! And if you are on a budget---the Kitchen is unreal!!! Thanks for a great Weekend!
This place was truly amazing! "I'll Be Back"
Great place and amazing service...we will be back next year for sure. Thank you for surpassing our expectations.
Your home much exceeded our expectations. It was definitely a beautiful place to stay. The home had all of the amenities that we could need and was in a fabulous location. We loved everything about it and we will definitely recommend it to anyone headed that direction. We had a fabulous time... Only wish we could have stayed longer
Highly recommended. The house is well maintained and cared for. Great fishing nearby. Will definitely stay there again
It was such a pleasure to stay there, my stress just melted away just sitting outside enjoying the breeze with my Margarita and listening to Jimmy Buffet, soaking in the fantastic view. The house is very well kept, a super location with everything you need only minutes away. For those into fishing, this is the perfect place. Just hop into the boat and in two minutes you are on the Atlantic Ocean. Did I forget about the fantastic sunsets from the terrace? I'll be back for sure.
The house was everything as described and more. Spacious, well kept, nice & clean. Great location with beautiful view. Cant wait to go back next year!
I hate to say anything bad but people need to be aware! This is our 5th property renting from VRBO. Everything has been reasonably priced and beautiful! We have stayed in the Keys before, in a condo and this year decided to rent a house. The property was a DUMP and the rotting smell of garbage never left the home. People even came to clean again and they called that house the smelly house!! It was unbearable!! If we could have found other accomadations we would have! The Kitchen sink was clogged the entire time, we were constantly plunging the toilets there was no hot water or water pressure, and one shower didnt even work. The beds had a plastic on them and were very uncomfortable. The furniture was so stained we had to put sheets over them to sit on it....gross. The towels were so old and stained and there were no pool or beach towels. Both the pool and hot tub were disgusting, someone did come to clean them but I never used them. The pool is under the patio and that part of the property gets very little sun... a pool seemed useless! The pictures look nice but it is all superficial! I highly suggest you avoid this property!! I dont know where the other people stayed that reviewed this property because my family did not enjoy it!!
I don't know where the people stayed in the March review but its not the same house we stayed in in May this is our second year staying there and we just booked next year. We love the layout of the house it affords a getaway down stairsfor me time with a huge TV and kitchenette along with 2 baths and 2 bedrooms. The upstairs has a great layout for large groups you can set at the bar or join friends at the large dining table. We do all of our meals in and this is just a perfect setup for our large group 8-10 adults. We love to come in from fishing all day and relax by the pool and under the covered patio. Its a great all kinds of weather getaway. We found the house to be very clean and well stocked for our vacation needs. The house is 2 blocks from the ocean by boat which makes it the perfect boating getaway. This is the sixth house we have stayed in the Keys and by far the best that we have found for our needs. We look forward to coming back again next May. Its the ideal house for all with the pool and hottub for children and young adults and very convient to activities and shopping for adults.
Our family has been vacationing in the Keys every year for the last 10 years and this is the 2nd time we rented this home an had a wonderful time. Plenty of space house and pool, spa very clean upon arrival. The location can't be beat with quick access to the Atlantic as well as the Gulf. We have stayed from Key Largo to Key West and plan to make this home our permanent vacation home.
Great location!!! Around the corner by boat is the marina/bait house. You can go up the river to the gulf or direct access to the Atlantic. Kayaks, pool, hot tub and hammocks are wonderful. My kids caught fish off the dock, saw eels, stingrays and manatees. Upstairs is fantastic. Manny will work with you. Wonderful family vacation!
We rented this home for our family to spend Christmas week together in the warm sunshine. The house was very spacious and worked well with the amount of people we had with us, 6 adults and 2 /16 year old boys. The location could not have been better. The house had pretty much everything we needed as far as supplies for cooking & eating, although we did go out to eat a lot as there are many great restaurants in the immediate area. The boys enjoyed fishing off the dock daily and the kayaks that were left at the home were used quite a few times. The Ocean was a bit choppy for our 26 foot rent a boat and the water was a bit chilly so we did not get to enjoy much snorkeling or any diving as we had hoped. (we did not bring wet suits) so we found other ways to enjoy the water as we did have easy access to both the Atlantic and the Gulf from the house. The pool was heated so that did get used frequently, the only negative was the pool or deck area never got any sun but this could have been because of the time of year we were there. All in all we enjoyed the house and had a wonderful stay. The owner, Manny was a pleasure to deal with and I would stay there again but next time it will be in the Summer and I would bring my own boat!
This is our 4th year staying at this beautiful home. We love the house and the location. The house was very clean upon out arrival. The home owners make improvements every year to make the house better and better. We really enjoy the pool (which is half shaded) and a welcome relief after a day on the water. The kayaks are fun and the kids enjoyed fishing from the dock. The kids room has a new mattress on one of the beds that seemed very comfortable as well as bunk beds and the master bed is very comfortable. There were toys(barbies and Legos that my girls loved)! Close by are a couple of restaurants, a dive shop and gift shop all within walking distance. There is a grocery store within a mile away. Our favorite restaurants this year were MEAT Eatery and Tap Room and Lazy Days. By boat you are very close to the channel and Atlantic side and a short boat ride to the gulf. I couldn't imagine a better location. Thanks for sharing your home with us. We'll see you next year!
