FLORIDA KEY'S MOST UNIQUE HISTORICAL LANDMARK

Duck Key House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms +), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4)

PLEASE WATCH VIDEO!!

This is a very unique rental. It is the most photographed location on Conch Key. Being a historical landmark it is a perfect getaway for honeymooners. Our home is very private. You are not sharing a condo building or apt. Certain times of the year a beautiful sunset can be seen from the balcony adjoining the master bedroom upstairs. The master bedroom has a romantic feel as you enjoy the interior lighting and view. Enjoy the TVs in kitchen, bedrooms, and living room.

You will enjoy sitting under the Sea Grape trees where you will be shaded from the Florida sun while you grill out. The only sounds you will hear come from the beautiful songbirds in the trees. Relax and enjoy the beautiful breeze.

You may also enjoy walking around our quaint and charming island or walk right to the Long Key Channel bridge. Enjoy spectacular views as you walk or bike across the bridge.

Conch Key is well known for its perfect fishing location. Minutes from the dock you are in the Atlantic or the Gulf of Mexico. Excellent fishing awaits you. There is a fish cleaning area located where you dock your boat and water washdown.

During lobster season, if you don't partake in harvesting, you may walk right across the street and purchase fresh lobster from the local lobstermen that live here.

Our location is on the south side of the island for our northern visitors who come to visit in Florida. You will not be hit by the strong northeastern winds that blow through in the winter on the northside of the island.

Once you experience Conch Key you probably will be back again and again.

Although this is not on the water, there is private dockage included across the street.

My husband and I are Florida Natives residing part time on Conch Key and Daytona Beach where we are involved with our two children in a family business. We bought our dream house on Conch Key in 2004 and decided to purchase another property two years later, our rental location.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

We love this island so much that we plan to retire here one day and wanted to have another business interest here.

We can honestly and factually say that you will not find another location as unique as this one in the Florida Keys. It was constructed by the original owner, a king fisherman, in the mid sixties. There is a bird aviary on the property where he used to house homing pigeons that he raised. He collected cannons, anchors and misc maritime memorabilia. The property as a whole is a work of art including the antique bottles in the walls.

GREAT WAY TO FEEL EXCLUDED AND HIDDEN IN YOUR OWN PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this rental with another couple and we will have memories that last a lifetime! From the unique way the house is designed to the location, it is an awesome rate for this rental. The owners are very friendly and more than welcoming. We were able to see gorgeous sunsets everynight. The hermit crabs were very entertaining to find in the evenings. Lots of outdoor activites to do in the area that we took advantage of such as walking, exploring, biking, kayaking, swimming, and of course eating seafood! The washer and dryer was a nice ammenity to have on the rental site. We would recommend this rental to any couple looking for a different type of rental!!

POLAR VORTEX ESCAPE :)

  • 5 of 5
Listing was good, property was very clean, owner was very helpful in all respects and great with communication throughout. I would absolutely recommend this unique, quirky, awesome, getaway. Bedrooms have separate entries from the main house. That makes this especially perfect for private slumber chambers away from the main action of your group but you do have to ascend a steep ramp or a spiral staircase to get to them. No worries, there is also a comfortable sleeper in the central house to accommodate any group members that are uncomfortable with the bedroom access. The rest of the property is fine to traverse and has some great outdoor sitting areas for enjoying the mornings and evenings. We read "Last Train to Paradise" a book on Keys Ghost Stories while we were there and visited all the key points in both! We also visited Flipper's gravesite, many wonderful restaurants and the Nichols family lobster boats right around the block from the house. Gary Nichols was wonderful and sold us some awesome lobsters right off the back of the boat! The location is perfect for doing all the Keys in a relaxed week and we just happened to be there while the Polar Vortex put the East Coast in single digits. Our worst weather was a few hours of 65 degrees :)

OUR STAY AT THE ROCK HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This past January (2012) was the 2nd time we stayed at ConchKey. My husband is 72 and all of our guests and familly that visited were the same age group. We did watch the video before our first stay and found it very helpful, we had no concerns about traversing the property. The area is lovely and we loved the trees and flowers , the hermit crabs were a welcome surprise, our cat loved them but couldn't figure out what they were . We would recommend the property to anyone not wheel chair bound. we had a wonderful stay the owners are wonderful we had great times with them and their friends . Looking forward to our next stay .

WHAT AN AWESOME PLACE...

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful property in February. We arrived at night and were greeted by a beautifully white-light lit property. It is beautiful and funky and fun. There are two full bedrooms, a kitchen, living room and full bath. The property is made up of two separate buildings which would be GREAT if you have two couples traveling together. Each bedroom is on the upper level and is accessed either by a beautiful spiral staircase or a curving stone ramp which matches the beauty of the rest of this property (built with coral, rock and other treasures). We loved spending time at this beautiful home and were sad that we had so many things we wanted to do on the Keys that we enjoyed it mostly only at night when it was beautifully lit. I just read the review posted before ours. If you look at the photos provided by the owner, they are VERY accurate in showing the property and the bedrooms/bathroom. It is clear that there is full bathroom that is separate from the bedrooms, but that there is a sink and commode available. In addition, the video shows a step by step entrance into the property including the use of the bridge, ramp and spiral staircase. While someone with mobility issues would do well to stay elsewhere, that is VERY clear if you do your research and truly look at all of the information provided in the listing. We loved the Rock House and will definitely be back!! It had super easy access to Route 1 and, yet, was quiet and relaxing!! It was a great place to start the day and then travel to either the Upper or Lower Keys!! THANK YOU for a great stay!!
