About the Property
With quick, easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic Ocean, this home is perfect for fishing, snorkeling and boating. This three-bedroom, two-bath home, which sleeps six, has a 45-foot dock with ample room for your boat. It is only one house away from the mouth of a deep-water canal that leads directly to the Gulf. There is plenty of off-street parking for your vehicles and boat trailer. A free local boat ramp is just a few blocks away. This home is designed for people who love to fish. It has a bait freezer, fish-cleaning station and deluxe gas grill. After you prepare your catch, you can dine indoors or outdoors on the wraparound deck while watching the sunset.
After a day of fishing and boating, take a dip in the swimming pool; then relax in the 7-person hot tub. Outside lighting illuminates the deck and pool and adds to the romance and ambience of the evening. You can also enjoy your favorite movies with the free WIFI and DVR from one of the four flat screen TVs.
Your vacation home is located at the end of a quiet street between a canal and nature sanctuary. After a restful night, start your day watching the sunrise over the peaceful nature preserve while sitting in the Adirondack captain chairs on the east side of the wraparound deck. Take advantage of the adjacent nature preserve to canoe or kayak to one of the locals' favorite snorkeling areas.
With more than 1,700 square feet under air, this home has multiple entertaining areas where you can spend time with family and friends or quiet time alone. The entry level has a den that offers an entertaining area with a TV and two twin memory foam daybeds. Adjacent to the den is the master bedroom with a king-size bed and its own TV and a king-size Dreamcloud luxury hybrid mattress. The master bathroom is conveniently located near the pool and hot tub. Upstairs there is an open-plan living and dining area with a TV and well-equipped kitchen. There is also a full bath, and two more bedrooms—one with a king-size bed with a memory foam cool-gel mattress topper and TV and another with two twin beds. All the beds come with pillows and luxury blankets.

Our visit was a two week stay in a really great location. Now first the bad, ok now that that's out of the way let's get on to the great! First off the location to the open water and dock are perfect, just two houses in from open water. The pool is the perfect size and gives you sun and shade options all day long. The outside area is clean and well kept, a wonderful paradise. The upper decks large with views and protected even in a rainstorm, awesome. Moving inside the home is amazing, clean and I mean clean! Awesome kitchen, living room, tile floors with some nice area rugs, TV's everywhere upstairs and down. The grill outside was great we used it often. The woodwork inside this home is pristine and new. Plenty of chairs and seating inside and out it's just a comfy vibe all around. The owners are awesome people and it rubs off on their home. Eating out is convenient, Birdines on the water, Porky's, Sunset grill is open again, and for the best of the best key lime pie hands down winner for the entire keys top to bottom is, Island fish Company! Now it's your turn to taste. Finally just stay at this home its awesome
