About The Owner

The lot was originally purchased by my Grandparents in 1978 and the home was built in 1981. All of the grandkids (4) learned how to fish, swim and snorkel right here, and today the fourth generation of great grandkids (8) is again learning how to swim, snorkel and fish right in the backyard.

The Owner purchased this house in 1981

Why The Owner chose Duck Key

This was the dream location where my grandparents wanted to retire to. The fabulous sunsets, the quiet solitude, the crystal clear waters, the wonderful breeze, and the fabulous fishing attracted them to this location over 30 years ago. This home became their most prized possession.

What makes this house unique

The home has been fully renovated with new flooring, furniture, bedding, new bathrooms and kitchen, and it is fully equipped with all the conveniences of home. The pool faces west, overlooking the waterway and the sunsets. You can also get ocean views from the balcony. The home has High Definition Satellite TV, wireless Internet access and a fabulous location. You are only 15 minutes from Marathon or Islamorada, and only 80-90 minutes from Key West. One of the few locations in the world where you can swim with Dolphins is located in Grassy Key, only 5 minutes from the house.

Such as shame

  • 2 of 5
My family and I have been traveling to Florida for 26 years and have stayed in many motels, homes and hotels during our vacations, including Hawks Cay, on Duck key in May of 2014. During that stay my wife and I found this house online and wanted to return with our family. The pictures of this house make it look fabulous. So we booked for our family of 4 adults to stay for a week in September 2014. Unfortunately the photos do not give you the full picture. The grounds, pool, Tikki hut and dock are all fantastic. The upstairs unit is clean and tidy and the kitchen, though small, is well stocked with all the equipment needed. In the lounge area however the furniture is rather tired and has seen better days. The two bedrooms are comfortable, but suffer from the same problem as the rest of the furniture in the home. The downstairs unit is very poor, it is basically a sleeping area, that has two sets of very old bunk beds with a fold out table and a noisy portable a/c unit in it. The décor is tired with cracked plaster. The so called ground floor master bed room has a portable a/c unit in the room (this broke down on the 3rd day of our stay and was not replaced, repaired or looked at during the time of our stay). The TV is an older CRT unit with two Mexican channels only. The storage for guest clothes is limited by the amount of extra bedding stored by the owners. The only redeeming feature is the nice new shower room. Hire charges for this home would suggest this is a five star home, when in reality it would struggle to reach three stars. With day time temperatures hitting 96+ degrees and the nights being little cooler, we had to cut our stay short, as there was no attempt made to resolve the problem with the A/C unit despite numerous phone call and emails to the owner/manager. The home has masses of potential, but there is a lack of attention to detail and professionalism, both in the homes' quality and it’s management. Not the experience we had expected at all.

Perfect Place for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a weeks vacation here and loved every minute of it. The location is great and the sunsets were spectacular. We caught a lot of mangrove snapper off the dock. It seems you have your own aquarium right in front of you. The house was very comfortable as we had 10 people staying with us. Plus the pool is very relaxing. I would recommend this place for any type of vacationers looking for a place in the Keys.

The house was absolutely wonderful for our group vacation. The kids and adults were never without a smile. The weather was spectacular, the view amazing and the surroundings perfection. Looking forward to a return to this perfect location.

Unbelievable Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We just left the home after a week with our six kids. WOW is all I can say. We take quite a few vacations and this trip was the best by a longshot! Frank was helpful, courteous and polite from the beginning. The house is exactly as pictured, only better! We did all of the things you are supposed to do in the Keys, Key West (1 hr away), Dolphin Center (5 minutes away), rented a boat (2 minute away), but the best time we had all week was right at the house. Swimming, snorkeling, fishing, eating on the patio overlooking the open water. We saw Tarpon and Rays right under the dock. Patio doors propped open and let the ocean breeze blow in, it was quite the difference from our Midwestern weather. We will absolutely be back. If you stay here and are not happy there is something wrong with you because the house is perfect.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We had three adult generations staying for a week long vacation. The location was perfect! Easy access for our 19' boat to the ocean and the gulf. The sunsets were gorgeous. We spent more time outside on the second floor patio and in the pool/on the pool deck and gazebo than we did inside. Being on the last street on Duck Key near the end of the road ensured little to no traffic. The split level house would be perfect for two families as well. The best fish we caught the entire week were caught right off the dock at the property! The owners and property "manager" were always prompt with responses and returning our deposit.

Duck Key is close to Marathon where shopping and dining is plentiful. You can rent tanks to dive or schedule dive and fishing trips right on the island. You are in a tropical paradise but nothing you need is more than twenty minutes away. We would definitely stay here again.

The home was comfortable and very well kept. The location of the property, at the end of a dead end street, afforded a level of peace and quiet rarely experienced on a vacation. The grandchildren were either in the pool or on the dock fishing from daylight to dark. The adults enjoyed these areas as much as they did.

We spent one day in Key West, one day on a charter off-shore , and the rest of the time eating at the great places in Marathon and Islamorada.

The sunsets over Tom's Harbour were spectacular.

Thank you so much for allowing us to share this special, special place.
