This spacious home is great for 3 couples with three different, private balconies above the mangroves. (When you rent this house and the neighbor's house VRBO# 311775, there is room for 6 couples!) The view is breathtaking. It is one mile off route A1, the first house at the opening of a deep water canal facing the ocean; there is easy access to the Gulf; the dock accommodates 2 boats.
Keywords: closest mainland house to Looe Key Sanctuary; great deep water canal + dock.
I am a marine geophysicist who designed and built this unique house.
The dolphin fish + lobster are plentiful; scuba diving is great in the Newfound Harbor Sanctuary. The water is much clearer, the reefs are in better shape + less crowded than in the upper keys.
There is lots of cultural and sporting events in the area.
We are next to 3 tidal lakes with blue crabs in them. The osprey, heron, iguana + key deer are visible daily. Just relaxing on the balcony is wonderful.
We have a small picnic island just out the canal where locals gather. Free live entertainment is occasionally provided.
We are a short boat ride to the international resort, 'Little Palm Island.'
scuba diving boat 1 mile down the canal with easy access to Looe Key Underwater Sanctuary + deep wrecks, near 'Dolphin Marina', near 'No Name Pub', 25 minutes to Key West or Marathon airports
