Summerland Key is one of the best islands in all of the keys it still has that old town charm while boasting some of the most beautiful waters in all of the keys. You have everything there but yet only a quick 25 minutes to Kew West. Plus this property is one of the few in the Florida Keys to have the correct zoning and permitting to allow weekly rentals.
Summerland Estate is a great place for a Keys vacation. You are close enough to Key West to hit the town and the night life but far enough away to get the quiet laid back Keys atmosphere. We had 10 in our party and had plenty of room for all of us. My three boys loved the "bachelor" pad downstairs. It was their own little slice of independence. The property is very well maintained and the manager and owner were very accommodating. We spent a lot of time on our boat and caught fish all week. Even caught some nice snapper right off the dock. My kids loved snorkeling off the dock and had some nurse sharks visit us almost every night. We have a 25 ft pontoon boat and the dock and deep water were perfect for even our bulky boat. The kids loved the pool and we enjoyed grilling out quite a bit in the evenings. Great relaxing vacation. Didn't get to use hot tub b/c of leak in it. But since it was summer in the Keys it wasn't an issue. I am sure the leak will be addressed as the rest of the house was well maintained. We will return again!
Jim made it a very smooth transaction and was so kind to me during my many emails to him!
My family and I had an amazing time at Summerland Estate. We felt as if we were staying at our own private resort! We left Philadelphia on a cold (32 degrees), Saturday morning and landed in Key West to a warm 60 degree brilliant, sunny day. When we arrived at Summerland Estate, Carol the manager, greeted us and filled us in on the home, local restaurants, parks, beaches, etc. She was kind, courteous and a wealth of knowledge! We were a party of 14 and never felt crowded. In fact we could easily have accommodated more people. The house is amazing, the pool, hot tub, tiki bar, pool table...we kept pinching ourselves; you will love all the amenities! My kids fished every day from the pier and we partied just about every night at the tiki bar. We visited Bahia Honda State Park which was about a 10 minute drive as well as Key West which was around 25-30 minute drive.
We loved your slice of heaven from the beautiful sunrises to the endless view of the stars at night; everything about Summerland Estate was perfect and we hope to visit it again!
This was our second time staying at the property and each time we've been there it's been amazing. Terrific location, incredible amenities and the most relaxing atmosphere. Whether you want to swim a few laps, relax in the hot tub, fish off the dock, shoot a game of pool or just drink at the tiki bar this place has got it all!
We made plently of unforgettable memories during our vacation to the Keys & the house was apart of it. It was the perfect size for the 9 of us and easily could have roomed a few more. It was up to date and everything was maintained & if we needed something done it happended right away. We enjoyed everything and would not hesitate to stay again, thank you!!!
What can I say about this place outside of "it's breathtaking!" The pics don't come close to how awesome this house is. We had a group of us and we have been going down to the keys every year and this place is the best we've found. The house is very accomodating and you wake up to a view every morning. Our group loves to fish so we spent most of the time down at the end of the dock. Recommendation -- More than 1 fish pole holder would be good. We had a few lines going at once and only 1 holder was working. Also, it would be nice to have some chairs down there too. The pool was great and so was the hot tub. The location is good for whatever you are looking for and close to key west if you feel like venturing out to this area. We had a great time and will be back next year for sure.
First off James was very easy to deal with, the whole process was a breeze.The house was great, it was very clean and nicely furnished.The house is better than the pic's show it.The yard was very private and very relaxing. Hot tub and pool were heated and clean. We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation,we would definetly rent this house again.
