HISTORIC WATERFRONT 2 BEACH HOME -PERFECT FOR FAMILIES AND WEDDINGS

Key Largo House Rental Photos and Description

2 Houses- total of 6 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Why would anyone want to rent a house on a canal right next to other houses and no real place to swim when you could rent this spectacular place.

Shadow Point' estate, a gated community, offers an exclusive retreat for vacationers desiring an intimate and private setting. This vacation rental is perfect for boaters, kayakers, canoers, divers and fishermen and can comfortably accommodate weddings, family retreats, workshops, and film shoots.This historic one-of-a-kind estate offers a glimpse of Key Largo as it was at the turn of the century. With its original Dade County hard wood floors, sinks in every room and unique pocket slider windows, the two guest houses offer the vacationer a chance to step back in time and experience the charm of days gone by. Located on a gated hammock point, the 2.5 acre estate is filled with lush tropical trees and a 260 degree view of pristine Key Largo Sound. It has its own private beach ready to launch kayaks and paddle-boards or built your own sand castle. The best dive reefs in the country are just a short boat ride away.

HISTORY: Shadow Point was built in 1917 by a ship captain and later bought by Chicago Industrialist, Frank Sweeting, for his fishing friends. After his daughter and son-in-law, Lelia & Marvin Adams, inherited the property, Adams spearheaded the design and construction of the nearby canal that links the bay side with the ocean side of Key Largo. It is now know by the locals as ' Adams Cut'.

Named for the beautiful changing shadows and light that filter through the tropical hardwood hammock, Shadow Point is located on Key Largo Sound, the ocean side of Key Largo, . Today, this estate offers the same relaxed atmosphere and seclusion of an earlier era. The 2.5 acre point is filled with lush tropical trees including Buttonwood, Gumbo Limbo. Lignum Vitae, and Key Lime. With a 260 degree view of pristine Key Largo Sound, Shadow Point is an exclusive retreat for those desiring an intimate and private setting.

ACCOMODATIONS: The main house has four large bedrooms with twin beds in two rooms and 2 king beds in the other two. There are private baths in both bedrooms with king beds.. The large kitchen is user-friendly and perfect for viewing the lovely trees and water while sipping coffee. The dining table can seat fourteen for family gatherings. A large breezy porch with hammock and two daybeds runs the length of the house and offers a panoramic view of the water. The guest cottage has a small kitchen, two bedrooms that each contain twin beds, a living room with a queen pullout couch, and a charming screened porch. Air conditioning, cable TV and wireless Internet add comfort and convenience.The property has 3 docks one of which has electric and water and can take a boat that draws up to 4 feet. This vacation rental is perfect for boaters, divers and fishermen along with being large enough for family retreats, workshops, weddings, and film shoots. We prefer to rent both houses together so you can experience total privacy and seclusion.

ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS: Swimming, sailing, canoeing, and kayaking are available on site. Boat rentals, para sailing, reef diving are nearby. Local attractions include Theater of the Sea, a marine mammal park, 5 miles south; Swim with the Dolphins, 3 miles south; and the Key Largo Community Park, with swimming pools, tennis courts, and a fitness trail. Shopping and restaurants are only minutes away. We have had numerous weddings at Shadow Point. Please call for information.

This property has been in the family for almost 100 years.

Marlee or Dylan Matheson purchased this house in 1917

This property has been in my family for 100 years. It was one of the first houses built on Key Largo and located in an incredible secluded hammock that instantly takes travelers away from the hustle and bustle of life. I am the 5th generation of owners and I have decided to share this wonderful place.

Like stepping back in time to the lazy days of the 1920's

Amazing!!! Pre-summer vacation!!!

The pictures of this house were beautiful online and we could tell that this would be a nice place to vacation. When we arrived and toured the house and the grounds a feeling of serenity came over us and we felt completely one with nature. The grounds were well kept and beautifully landscaped. We had a 27 foot boat that fit perfectly on the dock. The property even has a mini beach for the kids to play. The house has a large kitchen and was well equipped with any and all cooking supplies. We even used their waffle maker for breakfast a few times. The beds were comfortable and there was a constant breeze flowing threw the house with the windows open and a/C off. We used the a/c at night to sleep. The house has so much character and a nostalgic keys look and feel . We are so lucky to have come across this treasured property and can't wait until we return!

We had a wonderful family reunion. Beautiful private, island like, retreat. The kayaking was awesome. The water was clear and warm. Not a swimming area; however, lots of fun.

Amazing Vacation Spot

This was not our first trip to the Keys but it was our first time at Shadow Point. We cannot say enough about this property. By far, one of the best vacations ever! There were 12 of us total (all adults but this is a great place for kids too) and it turned out to be the perfect place to celebrate my husband's 40th (which we kept a surprise)! We snorkeled, fished and just relaxed on the beach the entire time. Shopping and great restaurants are very close and convenient but the 2 full kitchens made it very easy to cook most of the time. The large dining room table accomodated all of us and made dinners much more fun. Marlee was very easy to work with and there wasn't anything the place did not have for us. We look forward to many more vacations at Shadow Point in the future.

16 person family vacation, the kids 9-15 loved the beach and the docks for swimming, the kayaks were used by all. the large dining room was great for all to sit, eat and talk. Kitchen was large enough for several people to work at the same time. The historic ambiance was enjoyed by all. Close to shopping and plenty of shade trees, gorgeous location.

Classic Keys Elegance

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 7, 2011
  • Stayed: Mar 2011
I've been going down to Shadow Point for almost a decade. The expansive property is charming and full of history and life. There is plenty of space for everyone to eat, sleep and play comfortable and opportunities for activity abound. Swim, snorkel, fish, read, grill, cook or just lay in the sun or chat on the porch, enjoying the sea breeze. The In addition, recent upgrades to both the inside of the houses and the garden/foliage have only added to the impressive nature of this place. Still, the property retains its classic Keys elegance; you'll truly fall in love with its charm.

My wife and I were recently married at Shadow Point and it was the best decision we could have made. There is very little required to turn such a magical place into your dream wedding location. Needless to say we would highly recommend Shadow Point for a vacation, family gathering or other special event.

Map

Car: necessary

This 2.5 acre ocean side estate is located at the north end of Key Largo Sound at mile marker 103 just a one hour drive from Miami International Airport. It is across the highway from the Marriott Resort yet so secluded you would think you were in another world.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Canoeing, Tubing, Boating, Paddle boarding, Fishing, Swimming, Sun bathing - All of these things can be done right from the property. Right across the highway is the Marriott Resort that offers boat rentals and parasailing. Nearby you can take a snorkel and dive boat to the most beautiful reefs in the world. Stay on land and go across the Street to 'Sun Downers' Restaurant to get a view of the bay and feed the Tarpon.
