Overview

Key Largo House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Florida Keys are a largely undeveloped paradise connected to the mainland of Florida by the Overseas Hwy. It is a sleepy area reminiscent of a lost time in American culture, but with a tropical feel. Electricity did not even make it to the keys until 1941!!!

Although located within minutes of great dining, shopping and activities, this cottage captures that lost time. Situated on nearly an acre of waterfront land, this cozy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom poured concrete house built in the 1940's not only has withstood the tests of time - dozens of hurricanes without a scratch - it was completely updated in 2005 with central a/c (and heat), impact windows and doors, a private swimming pool, brand new kitchen with stainless steel applicances, updated bathrooms, and beautifully landscaped grounds.

You can enjoy the mornings with sunrise views over the water as you sit in the swing or on the beach. You can walk the grounds in solitude, or go for kayak right in your own back yard, enjoy a swim, or just relax in the hammock or porch swings.

If you prefer some excitement, you are literally minutes away from John Pennekamp Underwater State Park, some of the best diving, snorkeling and fishing in the world, the opportunity to swim with dolphins, rent boats and jet skis, and enjoy plenty of great shopping, restaurants and bars. Large grocery stores and pharmacies are also close by.

Because this home is situated on such a large parcel of land, when you enter the grounds, you enter you own private estate. If you are looking for solitude and a feeling of the REAL Florida keys, you have found it at Rock Harbor House.

About The Owner

I found this gem by accident while paddling my kayak. I came upon it by water and fell in love with this quaint cottage. Little did I know that beyond the house was nearly an acre of land spanning clear up to the main road in Key Largo. After capturing it in a bankruptcy auction, I took about a year to renovate the inside, build the pool, and landscape the grounds. This cottage became home for my family and me for about a year until work called me back to Miami. Now you get to enjoy the solitude I miss.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN A LUCRATIVE RENTAL PROPERTY FOR ME FOR 10 YEARS, BUT I AM INTERESTED IN SELLING IT. IF YOU ARE IN THE MARKET FOR A GREAT VACATION PROPERTY THAT IS ALSO AN INCOME PRODUCER, PLEASE CALL SALLY STRIBBLING AT (305) 283-2002.

What a gem !!! It is unusual to find a rental with privacy in the keys . This home sites way back from the road and has a nice gate to close . There are neighbors on either side but it still has the privacy and quiet that we were looking for . The home is very comfortable with all the ammenties you would want for a Keys vacation . Kayaks , pool , ocean and sun . We enjoyed having our dinners on the screen porch and lounging by the pool and ocean .There are great restaurants nearby and try to catch a sunset at The Bayside Grill . Great happy hour too ! Loved the Key Largo fishery for fresh fish and they also have lunch area ( casual ) with the best Lobster BLT. Snappers is another good dining spot.
I would definatly recomend this property . The owner was very easy to deal with and my deposit was returned quickly . The only con would be the outdoor furniture has seen better days and the outdoor shower enclosure could use some work .

We were a group of three adults, and the set up was perfect for us. It is certainly a five star place for folks who wanted to do nothing! The house is well fitted, comfortable, well equippped, though the dryer was broken for us. Otherwise for those satisfied not to have a beach to walk but on the water, it is perfect.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful stay in "paradise" at this old-Florida style home. Very nice house, furnishings...everything you need. Very private, but close to everything. Fantastic pool that we enjoyed so much. Even a visit from Tropical Storm Isaac couldn't mess up our time ! Although the storm may have stopped us from doing a couple of things we had planned, we really didn't need to go anywhere - this home is so peaceful and quiet - just what we needed for a relaxing vacation. The owner is the best !! Concerned for our safety during the storm, and going above and beyond to be sure we had everything we needed. Thank you so much, Vicki, for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We really enjoyed meeting you and your family and hope to return in the future.

Absolutely relaxing!

Our family of 4 had all types of plans of things to see and do in the Keys -- until we got to the Rock Harbor house. It was so difficult to pull ourselves away from the tranquility that we ended up not doing many things on our list, which turned out to be a much better vacation. Great location, close to everything needed but set so far back that you're in your own little world. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend it!
