Duck Key Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
Whether you're looking for a change in attitude or simply a change in lattitude, you'll love our 3 bedroom, 3 bath cottage located inside of Hawk's Cay Resort. If you want a clean & safe rental in a tropical playground, then please consider Fishtales South!
The Florida Keys are home to some of the best fishing, diving and boating in the world. Water clarity is usually exceptional, with the tropical weather usually 'severe clear!'
Our waterfront villa is located on large 'Lake Lucille' that feeds into the Atlantic. Enjoy the water view while you drink your morning coffee or sip your afternoon pina colada or rum beverage!
The rear of the villa is approximately 15 feet from the water and large dock. Fun times can be had fishing right from your dock (several places rent poles & bait). Boat docking is available directly through Hawk's Cay Resort or various private owners.
An ideal place to call home in-between all the activities that the Florida Keys has to offer. Countless dive operators, fishing charters, state parks, shopping, restaurants and much, much more all within 10 minutes or less of our cottage. Please visit our Forum Board on our website below to get you started. The link to our website is below under 'Links to more information.'
Our villa is painted in traditional Key West pastelle colors. With the breezy palm trees surrounding your cottage, the sounds of the water splashing against the rocks and seagulls crying...you will quickly fall into the island lifestyle. With our fully stocked kitchen you can make your own cheeseburger in paradise!
Located approximately 10 minutes from the Marathon Airport. An easy fly-in for private pilots.

This is a privately owned villa and not part of the Hawk's Cay Resort rental program. This is only for the rental of our villa. We have no control over the resort amenities and do not imply that you will have access to them.
A dock is not included as part of the rental, however we can certainly halp you make arrangements for nearly any size boat.
We have recently hired a new cleaning crew beginning 5/1/12. and continue to make improvements. We have wifi and now have cable . The home now has new flooring on the entire upstairs level!!
The home is perfect and at 1/3 of the resort price its the way to go!

About The Owner
I am a professional pilot in SW Florida. My family and I vacationed at Hawk's Cay Resort during lobster season several years ago & fell in love with the area. We spend most of our time diving or fishing, as there are countless reefs and dive/fishing locations in the Marathon area.
There is a large dock behind our villa and my kids spend hours every day just playing with the crabs and small fish that hang around. It is almost as much fun fishing from the dock with them as it is trolling miles offshore for the big fish!
The Owner purchased this villa in 2004
Why The Owner chose Duck Key
Marathon has a great little airport that is very easy to fly into with a private plane. If you fly in, tell Virginia at the front counter that 'Steve the Pirate Guy' sent you!
I enjoy the middle Keys (Marathon, Islamorada) because is is centrally located and very easy to get to anything the Keys has to offer.
Boating is also very easy to navigate in this area and even the novice boater/diver/fisherman can find their way around with ease.
What makes this villa unique
You can enjoy the quiet seclusion and lush surroundings of a high quality resort environment while being just minutes (literally) from anything.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to tell you that we had a great time again at your place. We love the stuff you've done with the place. It really looks good. I've been telling friends and strangers alike about your place and recommending it highly.
We had a nice run in with 2 manatees on the back dock yesterday!
