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 bedrooms, and living room.

There is a private dock located 50 feet away. Jump in your boat and within five minutes you are in the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf. Lobstering and fishing locations at its best.

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.

About Gerri Beck

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.

Gerri Beck purchased this house in 2006

Why Gerri Beck chose Duck Key

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

What makes this house unique

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. The landscaping is lush and tropical and sitting under the sea grape trees out of the Florida sun while you grill is so relaxing. Its a great spot for bird listening and watching!

Awesome fishing, diving, lobstering, and a great time had by all at the Conch Key Rock House

  • 5 of 5
We loved it and had a great time! Pictures and a description cannot do justice to the unique beauty and detail in the home. It is even better! Cannot say enough good things about the unique home and owners, who are very friendly, helpful, kind, and accommodating. Our main goal for our trip was fishing and lobstering. Both are excellent in the beautiful waters near the house. The included dock had plenty of room for our boat and is literally right across the street, very close to the house. This makes it super convenient to use the dock, large fish cleaning station, storage area, and large bait freezer. We caught our limit of lobsters and also caught grouper, hog snapper, and mackerel within only a few miles and short boat ride from the house. The waters near the home are well marked and hold the great diving and fishing we had. Great grass and currents for bully-netting lobster are located on both the east and west sides of the house. Sombrero reef was a beautiful dive. A classically beautiful Florida keys sunset can be enjoyed right from the dock. Also from the dock we saw sea turtles, tarpon, permit, snappers, parrotfish, and a manatee!
The house is very nice, clean, and tastefully appointed with everything a guest would need to have a fantastic trip. We grilled our catch on the nice grill on the patio, baked cookies in the oven, and made drinks in the blender while watching the full cable with WiFi. With plenty of shade from the large trees and pretty landscaping, the patio areas are relaxing to sit and enjoy the afternoon and evening even in the heat of August. The unique nature of the home and property allow for a great deal of privacy not had in other areas of the keys. It is very nice to not have neighbors right on top of you, as is the case in other duplex or manufactured housing neighborhoods on the nearby keys. The house is also very private for the group staying there as the bedrooms are separate from the main living area, providing great seclusion and privacy to each of the bedrooms.
We also took advantage of some of the land based activities around, including the Sea Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Key Fisheries restaurant, and dinner and drinks in Key West were fun, easy breaks from fishing and diving. Publix, K-Mart, dive shops, bait shops, and restaurants are also just a short ride away.
We greatly enjoyed our stay and recommend it to our friends and family! Hope to go back soon!

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 .
