The home has a huge kitchen with custom made wood cabinets and top of the line stainless steel appliances including an indoor gas grill and a standing freezer: to keep the catch of the day and feed a big family. There are three spacious balconies that allow you to walk on and enjoy the canal and the ocean view or simply sunbathe in serenity. It has a huge screen room on the first floor where you can relax sitting on patio chairs or enjoy a meal on the outside dining room table. The house is completed fenced and has plenty of parking for RVs and boats. It is located on a huge lot, and it is very tastefully decorated. There are also two living rooms one on the second floor and the other in the third. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood and a great place for a family reunion. It has a swimming canal on the back of the house and covered parking under the first floor. Great location for a vacation, kayaking or fishing.

We can have the lift fitted professionally for your boat by Lifetime Dock and Lumber Inc. - not that they charge a small fee for the service.
Just ask Google a question, "Hey Google, what's the weather outlook." Or, "Hey Google, play some inspirational music on 'inside'." You may also control the temperature, "Hey Google, set the temperature to 76 degrees on all devices" - there are three devices.
When you tell Google to play on "inside" you get JBL quality sound in the main living area.
If you don't want Google, just unplug the hub device. You can also, ask Google to turn off the thermostats to enjoy the fresh Keys air.
It's also useful to have Google call local services for you. For example, "Hey Google, call Cudjoe Gardens marina."
Oceanside and Gulf side boating await for those interested in exploring the Keys. If you hire a guide, you can explore offshore beaches on the Gulf side that we consider comparable or better than many of the beaches on Dr. Beach's list. Every once in awhile a seaplane will take someone to these beaches because the locations are just so wonderful (see the picture and video someone posted about Marvin Key which is in the backcountry).
For a small fee, we can have the lift adjusted to your boat. Do you really want to leave your boat in the water for a month?
Depending on the pet, this home has some freedom to roam because it has a chain-link fence on two sides and a metal fence in front. The backyard is bordered by a swimmable canal.
We do use a standard Florida rental agreement that includes waivers for swimming, equipment use and pets. We will send you a copy of the agreement and upon request.
We are proud to offer premium paddling and kayak services for those who want to step up their fishing game. Our premium lines offering include Hobie Pro-Anglers (pedal type), Hobie Outbacks (pedal type), and Wilderness A.T.A.K. Fishing Kayaks (pedal type/paddle). These premium services require a separate rental contract, waiver, and fees. For our customers, we offer a 80% discount for this service at this property. With the discount, this may be the best price in the Keys for this type of equipment. These premium services can be added to your rental payment through the online booking system.
Note: the home comes with "paddle-type" kayaks and paddleboards, and you may not need performance upgrades unless you are looking for an upgraded experience.

About the owner: We completed build in 2012 of this wonderful vacation home in Sugarloaf Key. As avid paddlers, we sought a home that allowed us to have low impact interactions with nature.
As mentioned throughout this advertisement we are avid paddlers. Several members of the family crewed in college and were/are competitive NCAA athletes. Whether its paddling an outrigger or simply taking a SUP for a yoga break in the backyard we enjoy being connected to nature.
We also enjoy fishing and fly fishing, and so we selected our toys and location based on our hobbies.
Speaks: English, Spanish

SIX STARS * * * * * *This is a wonderful home with channel access right behind the house. It's perfect for the whole family, very spacious. The owners are very accommodating, making sure everything is up and running before we arrived. We loved the comfy beds, the Jacuzzi, the large open kitchen, the Florida room! The Ocean was crisp and clear and loads of fun! We were 15 minutes from Key West for our necessary dose of tourism, more excellent food and some very memorable night life. Thank you so much, Naja, for offering your home as a vacation rental! We cant wait to come back!In short: the most wonderful home in the most wonderful place! I can't imagine a more relaxing, beautiful place on Earth.
