Overview

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.

Please visit our FORUM BOARD for discussions on places to eat, things to do and the rental process for this rental. Check out our website for much more details - SEE BELOW UNDER 'LINKS TO MORE INFORMATION.'

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!

Thanks again!

fantastic house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic and cosy house looked even better than the photos show - we were two families and had plenty of space. the downstairs bedroom with drawn curtains was not a problem for us. well stocked with fishing rods and we enjoyed all kinds of marine life just off the dock. Dawn was great with organization and communication. we hope to return!

Everything about the house was nice. No complaints. When I had to contact the owner on Friday at 11:30pm,she was able to help me with everything I needed. Great stay! Beautiful place! Can't wait to go back again.

MUST VISIT !!!

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews but I definitely had to make time for this one.

Location is absolutely beautiful. It's a gem m found in they Keys

Home owners are on point when it comes to info for the house and are very quick to respond to any questions you may have.

The house is well equipped and very spacious. From fishing rods to noodles for swimming, soaps, paper towels, toilet papers. Typical Florida decor and very well maintained. Linens are found in every room.

So the low down on the resort. You are a part of the Villas so it's a grey area because you are technically not a part of the resort/hotel. However, we used all of the facilities with no problem! From Kids corner, lagoon, pools, exercise gym, etc.

The main pool area and kids corner does have specific towels (3 different types) which you can easily find inside the house; The owners have provided that. I guess that is how they identify outsiders. The staff and employees at the resort are very informative and friendly. There are plenty of activities for the children throughout the day.

Live music near the poolside various nights with full bar (which accepts your cash or credit)

You are located about 15 minutes north from Marathon where you can find supermarkets, dollar store, pizza hut, liquor stores

Take time to go see: Dolphin Discovery research found onsite (swim or interact with dauphins) make sure to secure a spot ahead of time,

Turtle Hospital , Theater of the Sea (also dolphin, seal, shark encounters all day long)

Dolphin research Center in Marathon.

If you have time, make your way down to Key West (roughly 1 1/2 hours south)

Plenty to do there as well, museums, shopping, sightseeing, bars, restaurants.

So I think that's about it! Definitely visit this place

Great location & view!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the unit was excellent! Easy walking to the resort amenities and to the Marina. Beds were comfortable and it was very neatly kept. Look forward to coming back down again from Sanibel.

Thanks for a great weekend.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This home is a great location in the Florida Keys. It is exactly as they tell you in the listing. It isn't fancy but its clean and has what is needed if you aren't going to be in the house all vacation. We loved it being on the dock and water. There were a lot of kids fishing in the mornings and families having fun. The location is very central for the Keys. Its an easy afternoon trip to Key West and the other keys without staying there.

The one thing I'd warn you of is that the staff at the resort are very rude. You can use the swimming pools but you need to keep it quiet that you aren't renting through the resort. The staff demands a room number to allow you to pay for food and drinks with your credit card. The resort is clearly in trouble since so many owners are renting their homes on VRBO. I've traveled all over the world and spent much of my career in hospitality and I've never encountered a resort that was this rude. Usually they are just so happy to have any money that there isn't a problem.
