We have been going to Key West for at least 20 years. My wife and I decided to buy our retirement home in 2004 so we would have an opportunity to use it while we are still young enough to enjoy everything Key West has to offer. We love the boating, fishing, diving and of course the night life. If you love music Key West is the place! Being a long time dog owner, one of the first things we did is to wall the property so they couldn't get out, which also gave us a lot of privacy.
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
When looking to buy our retirement home we knew we didn't want to live right in town because it was too busy, yet we didn't want to be out of Key West. We were looking for a home with dock space and deep water access and also a private pool. When we found Key Haven there was no doubt in our minds that it would be a perfect location for what we were looking for. We found our home while cruising the canals of Key Haven and the rest is history.
The most important thing is privacy, privacy, privacy. We have great neighbors, it is a safe and quiet neighborhood. Living on the water was our dream and buying this home has made that dream come true. The pool area was very open when we bought our home but we soon realized we needed more privacy, hence the natural growth inside the wall that surrounds the property. The large porch area is great for reading on a rainy day, morning coffee and nightly cocktails. This is a great spot for romantic dinners.
Family of 5 (Husband, Wife, & three daughters) enjoyed this wonderful home. The home was very clean and had plenty of room for my family. Pool was perfect and we all spent time in it. We had everything we needed at this home away from home. I even was able to sneak in a little work in the downstairs office/den area. Loved the floating dock for easy paddle board access to the canal. Probably the only negative is how darn hot the floating dock got from the sun. We would spray it down with the hose before getting on it after my first try with bare feet on the all black plastic dock, yikes! We didn't get a chance to use the grill on the upstairs balcony but it will be on our list next year when we stay again. Mike and Marcia have a perfect place close to Key West but out of the chaos of Duval St. Easily the best place I have rented over the past 6 years of going down to the Keys.
I have rented this home for the last three years to fish with my friends and family. We always have a great time. The recent renovations to the kitchen and baths were a nice surprise. You don't often find these nicer finishes in a keys home. We will look forward to returning next spring.
This was our 2nd trip to the Keys and we looked hard to find a water access home that was close to the action and dining of Old Town yet had the RELAX factor. This is the place! Canal gives easy access to the either the Gulf or Atlantic. Fun Kayaking the neighborhood canals (owners let us borrow two, rentals close by) and directly behind the house is a natural aquarium with a large schools of several types of fish, several Parrot fish etc. Easy access to Key West by bicycle, car or taxi. House is at MM 5. Our two teenagers were comfortable with their own rooms, many activities and great swimming pool. Owners were super easy to deal with and gave great advice on dining and local activities. Highly recommend this house and hope to return someday
First off, I will state that the perfect timing we had of leaving the day before Tropical Storm Issac came to town couldn't have worked better and I hope the place survived with not too much damage.
That being said, this place is a fantastic place to stay and the owners are very very VERY accomodating. We arrived to the place and the pictures are spot on. The place is located perfectly to town and on a nice quiet channel. We met the neighbors across the street when they found a set of keys to a Toyota, that did not belong to us, but super nice people.
The house is clean, the pool is wonderful, but it was a bit on the warm side with the hot tub being on, but one call and the owners got it shut off and made the pool wonderful for our visit. There is plenty of room to move around so you are not always on top of each other, the channel is good for getting out and into the action and is very quiet at night for those peaceful nights after a long day of diving and fishing.
The house caretaker which I will withhold his name due for privacy was a phone call away and would offer tips on locations for fishing and diving and while the diving was not as productive as we would have liked for the lobsters, the fishing offshore for snapper was fantastic as we tore those up and had plenty to eat. All the amenties such as a fish cleaning station and water at the dock made cleanup easy and very convienient.
We will definitely consider staying at that home again as it served our purpose well and allowed us to get to downtown Key West with ease, even with all the road construction. This was well worth the money spent to stay in the lower keys and gave us the ability to see and do so much. On behalf of all of us that stayed here, we thank you for lending us the use of your beautiful home and were always looking at the nice picture arrangements you had on the walls as we were constantly seeing something new. You look like wonderful people and maybe one day we can meet in person, because judging by the comments in the guest book, you are for sure OUR KIND OF PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!
I have stayed at many VRBO listings in the last 8 years, from Key West to Destin. Pictures provided in this listing do not do the property justice! This is an absolutely beautiful property with many amenities. I was very impressed when I arrived at the fully stocked kitchen. Anything I needed was there for my use. The dock was perfect for our boat. We enjoyed many mornings watching the many fish swimming right there by the dock. The neighbors were wonderful and even checked in on us providing great hints and tips about fishing in the nearby hot spots. The owners provided great support for us before our arrival. The HOUSE WAS IMMACULATELY CLEAN!! We love Key West and hope to return and stay in this home again!
