My husband, myself and our three girls, are residents of Fort Lauderdale. I have been visiting the Key's since I was just a baby and can honestly say that all my best memories were made here. I cannot thank my parents enough for introducing me to paradise and allowing me to experience so much! Because of this, I have always dreamed of owning my own property here in the Key's.
The first place I ever took my husband, Philly boy, was down South to the Key's. Although he had visited Key West in the past, he automatically fell in love with Tavernier! I surprised him with a birthday dinner one lovely Saturday evening at Morada Bay, and what do you know...he fell in LOVE. Because of the love we shared for the Key's, we looked further...
My dream became a reality!!!
We purchased our Hammer Point property in 2010 and began construction a few months later.
Owning our own property in the Key's will allow our 3 baby girls to experience everything I experienced growing up and more. I hope they will gather the same amazing memories as I gathered the last 3 decades.
Our hope is for you to experience the beautiful times the Key's has to offer and that you create unforgettable memories like ours!
Priscilla purchased this house in 2012
What better location than in Tavernier?? Only 60 miles south of Miami and only 93 miles north of Key West. We are located just minutes away from Islamorada where you can enjoy Tiki Bars, Sandbars, great dining, and much more. We chose this location because it centered between Key Largo and Islamorada. Close enough to make a day trip to Key West or to make a day trip to Miami. We chose bayside to enjoy less hectic boating and water sports.
Turn on Jimmy Buffet, prepare your favorite cocktail, throw on your bathing suit and sit down in our brand new pool. Sip your cocktail with those closest to you and enjoy the views of the bay....what more must I say???
What a wonderful experience we had renting this beautiful home. No expenses were spared with the design and furnishing of this magnificent home. Priscilla and Tony were a pleasure to deal with. There was plenty of room for us to have some friends and family come visit with us.We spent many evenings in the huge kitchen making the fish we had caught that day. The sunsets are beautiful and we took many pictures from the rooftop. The neighborhood is a great place to walk, my dog really enjoyed it! The manatees came to visit us twice. This was a month we will never forget.
This was our second visit to Priscilla and Tony's vacation home, this time for the month of January and the stay was even better than our first! This is a gorgeous, modern Keys home on a canal with access to the Florida Bay. It has everything one needs to have an enjoyable, relaxing time from an open beautiful kitchen with all the extras to a rooftop deck to stargaze or enjoy sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The pool is great for dipping and hanging out and the bottom floor has a small refrigerator for easy access to drinks for pool-time. Our mornings were spent having coffee on the second floor deck to enjoy the bay view, warm weather, and seabird flyovers. We loved having the multiple decks to enjoy the views and the weather.
We also love that we can bring our dogs so they can be on vacation with us. The yard and pool are nicely fenced and safe for dogs and children. Our older lab would check for manatee every time we went down to the dock. He seemed to develop a special relationship with a couple of these gentle giants! The downstairs area was great to set up our crates for the dogs to sleep.
The neighbors in Hammer Point were as friendly and helpful as ever. We learned about more places to eat, kayak and paddle board around Tavernier and Islamorada. But what was really nice was the home's dock provided a place to get out on the bay at any time of the day.
This is a great rental property and we are returning again next year!
I stayed at this home for Christmas 2014 with my husband and 5 month-old and two other couples, including another baby. The house was incredibly spacious and well-appointed and the location was incredible. The owners were nice enough to leave out baby items for us to use (a swing, bouncer, floor mats) and it was a definite bonus that the house had two cribs! Traveling with baby items is NOT easy, so this really lightened our load.
We spent a lot of time cooking in the gourmet kitchen (wow!), which had everything we needed, including basic spices and oils. The patio furniture was very comfortable on the 2nd floor balcony. The rooftop balcony is too windy for furniture, but we appreciated the plastic adirondack chairs tucked away by the AC units so we could enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the roof.
It was a bit chilly to spend much time by the pool, but it would be a great spot to relax in the sun! Our group rented a boat for the week and were greeted by a mom and baby manatee before one of our cruises. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
Priscilla was very helpful throughout the booking process and was quick to answer questions we had about the home and the area. I would definitely recommend this home to those looking to stay in the area.
We had an incredibly great time in an incredible great atmosphere. Your place surpassed all thoughts and expectations about what we had chosen for a child proof home. You and Tony have put so much thought and energy into making guests so welcomed. The house is perfect for children under 3. We didn't have to stress once about the kids as everything is gated and child proofed! The cribs, pack and play and swing in the house were so accommodating. We hope to return, sooner than later of course! By all means, we will be back to your place when we head back down there.

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful home. Spacious, clean, great location for anything Keys related. We were able to entertain family and friends in town for my sisters's wedding. The guests were pleased with the home, the furnishings and the amazing views from the rooftop patio. We would recommend this lovely home for rental for family boating, relaxing, fishing, and restaurants.
We have travelled to the Keys for years and always use VRBO. This by far was our favorite home we have rented. The house has easy access to the bay by boat or kayak. The pool was a hit with my kids but our favorite feature was the roof. The sunset view is amazing. We stargazed nightly. The kitchen is a chefs dream. Beds and linens great too. House is perfect for children. Completely baby proofed. Would love to return.
John Pennekamp is located less than 10 miles away, where you can enjoy anything from scuba diving/snorkeling to glass bottom boat rides. If you have enough time, take advantage and rent a boat to explore the United States first undersea park.
Theatre of the Sea is located at mm 84.5, just under 10 miles away. Enjoy anything from swimming with dolphins to swimming with sea lions and rays. There are also great shows starring some of our favorite marine wildlife.
Key West is also a FUN hotspot. You are close enough to visit for the day.
I will be happy to discuss the many attractions surrounding our home. There are too many to mention.
