About Linda Lange

I am the owner's daughter, grandaughter to Del and Mary Layton, and I manage the property for my mother. I grew up in Miami and came to the Keys often as a child with my grandparents, spending many summers here with them. I remember fondly the 'long' drives down on the rough roads and the rattling draw bridges in the back seat of the Chevorlet Impala with Pat, the family dog. After marrying and having two sons, we continued coming down to see my grandparents each chance we could, bringing friends and church groups to enjoy our blessings. Mary and Del were gracious, enjoyed people and were loved by all that knew them. I hope to continue sharing the joy that the Layton House has brought to so many over the years as families and friends build lasting memories.

Why Linda Lange chose Long Key

This property has been passed down from my grandfather, Del Layton, to his daughter, Aileen Howard. He founded this little piece of paradise in the Middle Keys after selling his grocery business in Miami in the late 1940's to follow his dream. You can read the history in his biography, Pioneer in the Florida Keys. The property is very spacious, tranquil and private.

What makes this estate unique

The Layton property is one of the most beautiful in the Florida Keys with views of the Bay, gorgeous changing sunsets, and swaying palm trees from the many windows in the home. The huge kitchen with a large semi-circular bar area is the gathering place for young and old to cook, eat and enjoy each other's company. Pictures displayed around the home recall moments from the past. The large circular fresh-water pool, surrounded with native landscaping, is a fantastic place to unwind and relax before grilling your catch and having dinner in the tiki.

perfect, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
8 of us stayed at the Layton House for a laid back and relaxing weekend. The house, location, and host could not have been more perfect for what we were seeking! The house is spacious and easily accommodates a large group without feeling the least bit crowded. Linda went above and beyond to help us feel welcome and comfortable - we had everything we could have ever needed and so much more! She is an immensely gracious and accommodating hostess. The location is stunning - gorgeous sunsets, access to a beautifully landscaped private pool, and lovely shaded patio areas for relaxing and unwinding. Great restaurants and water sports close by! The Layton House was a stunning, comfortable, and relaxing getaway that was everything we could have hoped for!

Fabulous, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Layton House for spring break in March. What a wonderful place! We were 2 families who had a relaxing and perfect visit! The house is very comfortable and inviting. Our boys fished every day and loved being outdoors in the beautiful scenery. We watched incredible sunsets every night as we sat by the outdoor fire pit overlooking the bay. The large property is great and offers plenty of outdoor seating to read a book in the breeze or simply take a nap! Linda keeps the house very clean and attended to every request, as well as provided useful information about the area. She was truly delightful and a very caring caretaker.
The house has plenty of room for guests to enjoy, especially the kitchen. We cooked dinner several nights and found the kitchen well stocked, as well as a gorgeous view! The house is in a great location. It's a short drive to Islamorada and to Marathon, both places with good restaurant options. We didn't want to leave because it was a wonderful vacation. I really can't say enough nice things about how much Layton house was perfect! The historical significance is fascinating. We all HIGHLY recommend staying at Layton House!!

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We relaxed and enjoyed our week so much that we extended our vacation several days into the next week since Layton House was available and Linda so accommodating. No better place to watch a different sunset every night from the privacy of your own yard with a fire pit. Days spent relaxing and reading from the private pool or anywhere on the property with spectacular water views. The house is very well maintained, clean and well stocked. We will be back many more times.
