Overview

Cudjoe Key Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4-6

This great family vacation spot near Key West is in the Florida Keys! Stay in this charming two-bedroom 'Conch Cottage' on a one- acre oceanfront property, surrounded by lush tropical gardens!

Our home is situated about 15 miles from Key West, and features an oceanfront swimming pool and a boat launch and dock!

This is not a 'typical' vacation rental! Each cottage is beautifully decorated with unique character. They have all the modern amenities including satellite TV, microwave ovens-- and, of course blenders! Other conveniences available upon request include free use of a washer and dryer!

Tropical fruits including bananas and coconuts grow throughout the property and make delicious drinks! The cottages are surrounded by gorgeous tropical gardens which are beautiful places to relax and meditate and just enjoy the fragrances and color.

Each cottage has two queen-size bedrooms, and a sofa bed or daybed in the living room that converts to two very comfortable twin-size beds.

This is a great location for families! You can explore the ocean shore by kayak (it's normally very calm because of the reef), fish from the dock, snorkel or dive the reef, or swim in our oceanfront pool! It's all waiting for you!

We're about halfway between Key West and the best beach in the Keys -- Bahia Honda! So whatever you might like to do is just a short distance away! Access to the 'Back Country' and the National Wildlife Refuge is right on our island. Looe Key, the best reef for snorkeling and diving, is just a few miles off our shore.

There's a full-service marina just a mile or so away, if you want to rent a boat. We also have limited dock space available on our property.

We're just minutes by boat to the best diving and snorkeling in North America! Great sport fishing, boating, sailing, and windsurfing is available right from our dock! Sightseeing and shopping in Key West is just 15 miles away.

Whether bicycling or swimming, you'll be in awe of the lush tropical gardens and exotic wildlife that surrounds you. Relax by our oceanfront pool. Enjoy a game of golf. Or take a tour of the pristine wildlife preserve in the backcountry! It's a national treasure! And Bahia Honda, the best beach in the Keys (and many think in the world) is just minutes away!

After another memorable day in paradise, let the tropical ocean breeze caress you as you sip an afternoon tea or other beverage in our shaded lounge. It's all within a few minutes of your quiet and comfortable accommodations.

About Owner

We left the corporate jungle a nearly a decade ago and searched for a great location to raise our four-year-old son. We found it here in the Florida Keys.

Owner purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Owner chose Cudjoe Key

There was only one requirement we had while searching for the right property: It had to have the 'WOW!' quality. As we walked around the property, looked out at the offshore islands from the dock, walked into the cottages, and relaxed in the pool, all we kept repeating to each other was: 'WOW!' We knew right away we had found our new home!

What makes this cottage unique

Our property is close to Key West, but far enough away from the commotion and the noise to enjoy the real keys. The reef is less than a half-hour by boat, but if that's too far you can fish right from our dock and grill them up for an evening meal by the pool. Some beautiful offshore islands like Marvin Key are accessible by boat or even kayak! Restaurants and stores and less than a mile away. And the best swimming beach in the Keys, Bahia Honda State Park, is 20 minutes away!

Paradise in the Keys

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I LOVE this property! It is so peaceful and we have everything at our fingertips for an enjoyable vacation without even having to leave the property if we so choose, i.e. beautiful cottage, swimming pool, dock for fishing & launching our boat, laundry facility, gracious host, etc. We've stayed at numerous locations in the Keys and find this specific one exactly what we need for much needed R&R. Mike is always a gem when we are there; treating us like royalty by making sure everything is running smoothly so we are not inconvenienced. Mike and Sue are wonderful to work with to make sure our vacation is enjoyable. We can't wait to go back in 2015! P&G Adams - Martinsville, IN

QUIET HIDDEN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying in Cudjoe Key. We found this place to be just right. The cottage was quaint and had everything we needed for the week. The pool was heated just right, not too hot and not cold. The ability to rent kayaks and have them dropped off was great. We had wonderful neighbors and everyone enjoyed the beach/pool area. My husband enjoyed fishing right from the beach area. One of the other guest caught a small shark. Mike was a great host and made our stay feel like we were home away from home. We were close enough to Key West and just away from the noise during the evening hours at Key West. If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the place. We will be back again.

Everything was wonderful! Clean and peaceful location - very nice! No problems with the entry road or property and the owner was so friendly and generous. His wife was a gem to work with in booking. My husband and I plan to go back next year and can't wait; getting excited about it already. :)

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
This past year I had the chance to travel to the Keys with my son of four and wife. As I began to plan the trip, I knew we would prefer to stay at a place that was more of a home than a hotel or room. Many of the places in Key West and the surrounding area were extremely expensive and location was tough to find. I came across this property through a colleague who stayed here a few years ago and loved it. I must say, I was very fortunate to come across this property. From day one we felt immediately at home, as the property lies off of Route 1 enough that you feel the seclusion of the water and surroundings. The cottage itself had a very warm feeling and all the things we needed to make it home for the next week. During our stay, Mike the property owner, went out of his way to make our stay memorable, offering to cut fresh coconuts for our son, as well as offering different dining ideas in and around the area. The location of the property was great, as it was a 12 minute drive to Bahia Honda, which is a beautiful beach and wonderful location to visit for the day and Key West was a mere 25 minute drive or so....and with the construction in the Keys, having the chance to drive in and "visit" was great! At the end of the day, we could always retreat to the cool surroundings of our cabin and a dip in the pool on the property, which felt like our own, for the most part. If you are thinking of visiting the keys, this property is a sure bet! You won't be disappointed with this choice as its close enough to everything you need yet far enough to call it your own!

Yves Georgen from Luxembourg, Europe

  • 5 of 5
I came from Europe and first had my family and than my friends. Cudjoe Key is well situated, not far from loud and wild Key West. The garden is beautifull with an entrance protected by a gate that opens with a code. The swimming pool is rather small, but clean and well situated with a fantastic view. There are 5 cottages all the same size. I enjoyed the other customers while BBq'ing or around the pool. It was nice meeting people especially coming from Europe and being interested in the american way of life. You guys are great people. The owner, Mike is a hell of a nice guy. He helped us all the time when we had questions about locations or nice places to see. We went diving in Looe Key, Fishin' in KW, Jet sky'in in Summerland Key, and went on Helicopter in Marathon... The cottage was clean and nice.

My First time to the Keys

  • 5 of 5
I run a restaurant in the tourist town of Eureka Springs in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas and usually spend our down time on the beaches of South Walton on the panhandle of Florida. Since we had friends doing the annual Key West art show, we decided to get together for some fun times.
I do quite a bit of research before I vacation in a new area. I wanted to experience the best the Keys had to offer since my wife and I would be spending 17 days. After quite a few hours online I chose Cudjoe Key as a base to look for accommodations. We wanted to experience the history of Key West, its shops, restaurants and landmarks. Beach time is also important to us and nearby Bahia Honda State Park has one of the best beaches in Florida, a scarce commodity in the Keys. Conch Cottages are ideally located for that perfect vacation.
We like history and it is always a part of any vacation we take. Conch Cottages were built in the 1920s and have been restored with all the modern amenities. The owners are very aware of what you need when you are traveling away from home and stock it quite well. The cottages reflect a part of Florida history that is hard to find and quickly disappearing in high-rise-condo-everywhere Florida.
The grounds are beautiful. I can't say enough about the incredible variety of tropical plants and the way the property fronts a wide expanse of ocean. A small pool is set on a sandy area surrounded by coconut trees, and if you are lucky and the owner Mike is there, you might get to try one of his concoctions using a fresh coconut and an adult beverage. There is also a small boat launch area and slips for four boats. Our friends who usually have a boat nearby, said they will be back, but will bring their boat with them next time.
We were able to relax ocean side, or sit on the screened-in porch at night chatting with friends, or cooking up some fresh seafood we bought at one of the seafood shops only a couple blocks away. The satellite tv has a wide arrange of channels and was nice to have those few hours we weren't running in to Key West or heading to the beach.
The other benefit to the location of Conch Cottages is the joy of finding two of the top ten restaurants in the Keys were only minutes away and Mangrove Mama's was just down the road. Do not miss the Square Grouper and Kaya Island Eats. Thanks to Mike and his lovely place the four of us had a great time and will be back. You won't find a better place to enjoy the best of the Keys.
