About this rental
This recently renovated property enjoys 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and separate kitchens, living rooms and laundry facilities. It shares an ocean facing veranda with 2 dual gas grills and multiple seating and lounging areas. It has ample offstreet parking for vehicles and trailers. The Admiral on the Cove boasts of 106’ frontage on Captain's Cove with a 40’ shared finger pier. The deep clear water is relaxing to sit and observe multi-species of fish. Enjoy your breakfast on the veranda watching the sunrise and in the evening’s the sunsets at Port Antigua’s Private Beach on the beautiful Florida Bay. Relish preparing your grilled feasts while overlooking Captain's Cove and the Atlantic Ocean. This property also enjoys walking and bike paths the entire length of the island of Lower Matecumbe (5 miles). Our neighborhood private beach is made up of beautiful sand and crystal clear bay water, one of the best beaches north of Key West. Our beach area hosts numerous picnic tables covered by chickee huts with charcoal grills. Port Antigua is a golf cart friendly community, so we would recommend renting one ( ) to come and go to the private beach, gas station for snacks, sightseeing and a local Cuban restaurant. It is rare to experience a property on such deep water and when the Cove is clear you can observe multiple species of aquatic life, including manatees and porpoises. Huge tarpon will suspend underneath the dock. Feel free to catch your dinner right from your back yard. This property is ideal for extended families who will enjoy their family vacation but also have their own private space and down time.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.

It is a very short distance to some of the best offshore and back water fishing in the world. Minutes away from the # 2 and # 5 channels which are famous for the tarpon run. Minutes from Flamingo National Park and Offshore to the reef with numerous areas for fishing, diving and snorkeling. Lower Matecumbe is a small island less than 5 miles in length with very little commercial real estate. On this island you will be able to relax and blend in with the locals.
In today’s times scheduling a getaway can be difficult. We are willing to work with you on that schedule, including duration of your stay, check-in and check-out times, pet’s will be considered on a per case basis. We enjoy a strong network with local marina’s, charter captain’s and business merchants. This might come in helpful when you are working on your vacation schedule.
Why Kids Love It
With a 106' of water frontage you are able to observe all different species of fish and catch dinner right from your dock! Stroll to your private neighborhood beach where you can swim, snorkel, kayak and paddle board (All for rent at the end of the block).

About the owner: George & Bonnie
We fell in love with the Florida Keys many years ago. We have rented and stayed in the Keys from Big Pine Key north to Key Largo and have always dreamt of owning our own place. George is a licensed builder and wife Bonnie have been involved in many residential restorations. We welcome you to enjoy this very unique property.
Why this property? With our experience vacationing in the Florida Keys we found ourselves wanting to truly enjoy an Island living lifestyle. We definitely have it on Lower Matecumbe Key, an island less than 5 miles in length. With nearly 25 years of experience managing vacation rentals we have received numerous requests for accommodations for large extended families and groups.

A Spectacular Spot
We enjoyed our stay at this beautifully furnished and well stocked house. George and Bonnie responded quickly to any questions that we had. The separate living areas allowed us to enjoy family and friends while giving everyone their own space to escape. The back deck was awesome and the furniture is comfortable and plentiful. The space provided a spectacular view of sunrises, a gathering place for morning coffee, evening meals and watching the boats. Just around the corner, we purchased fresh shrimp and lobster for the grill as well as crab claws that had already been prepared. We felt like kids with our own aquarium viewing the fish and coral in the crystal clear water from the dock. Within an hour of our arrival, a manatee appeared. It was one of several that came by to visit during our stay. We did rent a golf cart, but probably wouldn’t go to the expense of that again. Our rented bikes got us where we needed/wanted to go in the neighborhood. The beach had tiki hut cabanas, picnic tables and lots of trees for shade. Don’t forget to visit the State Parks.

Thank you for your kind words! We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Beautiful place in an excellent location
George & Bonnie are excellent hosts. Our 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo was beautifully furnished and very clean. We had a family of 10 so the 2 upstairs units with connecting balcony were absolutely ideal. We loved the location and view!
