A beautiful 3 story house directly on the ocean in Key Largo. The top floor is a master suite with ocean views left, right and front. Large glass doors open from the master on to a private balcony looking over the ocean.
On the main floor are two bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths and an open floor plan living room, kitchen dining room. Again water views surround. The dining table is set into a nook with a custom table and seating. The living room was 46 inch plasma TV and two comfortable double recliners. Off of the living room is a large deck with an outdoor dining area.
On the ground floor is a complete independent mother-in-law suite complete with its own bedroom, bathroom and full kitchen. This can be used to cook and entertain on the screened in ground floor deck, it can allow you some separation for friends or extended families vacationing together.
Picture the Corona Beer commercial where they are relaxing near the aqua blue water and splash goes the cell phone. If you want to experience the 'Keys' of Jimmy Buffett fame, this is the spot.
The outside is beautifully landscaped with a winding path from street side to ocean side. The entrance to the pool area and the ocean is framed by a trellis that is covered in flowering vines. The pool has jets, lights, and if needed a heater.
There is a 30 foot dock with 2 fresh water faucets, 2 110 volt outlets, and a 30 amp boat service. Just off the dock are great places to find lobster. In season with your fishing license you can take 6 per person per day. Nothing tastes better than fresh steamed or grilled lobster and nothing will entertain the child in you like catching them.
This house is as close as you can get to Molasses Reef - one of the most popular and magnificent dive locations in the world. You can see the Molasses reef navigation beacon from the house. Special rates with Ocean Divers if you need gear or if you want to join their twice a day dive trips to the reefs around Key Largo.
The Florida Keys are known for their laid back attitude. No worries and no hurries. There are very few chain restaurants, but plenty of great little places tucked away all along Key Largo and Islamorda. Good food, live entertainment and beautiful settings.
For fun things to do - anything that has to do with the water is available. Swim with the Dolphins, visit the Turtle Hospital, scuba diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, sailing, kayak the Florida Kayak trail that goes right by your dock.
Four adults and 2 children enjoyed this house for one week. Great house with amazing views. Sunrise from the master bedroom was beautiful. The house was very clean and well equipped. Everyone enjoyed the pool and my son-in-law fished from the dock. We saw sting rays, snappers and other fish from the dock. If we weren't in the pool, we spent most of our time on the lanai overlooking the pool and ocean. Robert, the manager, was great. He met us at the house when we checked in and went over everything at the house and was available by phone. The toaster broke and he brought over a new one an hour after I called. We walked to Snappers restaurant. We enjoyed eating at Mile Marker 88 which was Robert's suggestion. We had a wonderful week in Key Largo.
We loved being together and yet each having our own little private stay in the home. The recommendations were wonderful, Robert knows his stuff. We followed his recommendations for fishing and we are very glad we did. Thank you! The home is beautiful and user friendly. Amazing stay amazing time, thank you!
We had a marvelous time. Family consisting of 6 adults and 3 children. Plenty of room for all, truly nature at its best! We hope to return next year to enjoy Key Largo and this lovely home again.
We really loved this propery. The pictures didn't even do it justice. The view was breathtaking and we enjoyed our morning coffee looking over the beautiful Atlantic wether it was warm or cold outside. The house had everything we needed and more. The grill and habachi grill were a nice touch. Robert, the property manager was very helpful. We enjoyed a couple of restaurants he recommended and also a great fish market. We would definitely return to this property in the future.
This home is excellent and Robert, the 'caretaker', was very accommodating with our last minute reservation when our cruise was cancelled. He not only brought us home made banana bread, he was there in fifteen minutes when our son locked our keys in the house! Sitting on the second level deck every morning with a cup of coffee looking out at the deep blue sea was ever so relaxing. The kids (& adults too) loved the pool with jets. The kitchen was well stocked, home was clean, and the A/C's worked great. The only issue we came across was when the pool pump broke during our stay. It took several days to get it repaired but the pool guy made sure the water stayed clean so we could continue to use it. Please note in case you have young children, the downstairs unit is completely separate with it's own entrance and no interior connection to the upstairs. I think our teenagers actually liked this and it would be great for grandparents, but I can see this being an issue if you have several young children.
You must eat at the following restaurants which aren't fancy but where the locals go for great food: Village Gourmet on Islamorada (the BEST spicy fish tacos & grouper dip), Keys Fisheries on Marathon (all kinds of fresh seafood and you may see a manatee swimming around), and Mrs. Mac's Kitchen in Key Largo (great Keylime freeze, steaks, and seafood).
We would definitely stay in this home again and already miss the Keys!
I just returned from spending 2 weeks in this Key Largo Beach House. Oh my goodness, it is absolutely wonderful! The description is accurate, however, neither the description or the photos do it justice. The property is beautifully landscaped, very tropical, well maintained and clean. Fishing off the dock at high tide was great. The views you have are outstanding. I really enjoyed the pool. Partly shaded by palm trees during much of the day, so you can float on an air matress and read or just rest and not get too much sun. The jets at one end of the pool were a nice addition, very calming and comfortable. I am a huge football fan, and there is an outside sound system that I took advantage of to listen to football games so I did not have to spend precious vacation time inside in front of the TV. Having a full kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor just off the pool, was very convenient. I enjoyed working directly with the owner Michele. She answered all my questions very promptly and is a real pleasure to work with. Stay here, you will not be disappointed.
