Overview

Duck Key Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2br/2bth cottage on the water. *Option to rent as 1br/1bth (see rate schedule)

Located on a small tropical island we are on a quaint lobster fishing village about 10 miles from Marathon close to various state parks and beaches. A quiet island with an easy relaxing pace of life.

Tastefully furnished, the cottage is a cozy 2bedroom/2bath romantic getaway with wi fi internet access. The 2nd bedroom/bath attached to the cottage is separate and accessible by private outside entrance/exit only providing an extra level of comfort & privacy for 2 couples traveling together or families. Both sides include Direct TV with premium channels, and separate thermostaticly controlled central a/c - heat. The 2nd br/bth(Outside Bedroom 2) is closed for individual couples who wish to rent as a 1br/1bth at the lower rates (*see our 1br/1bth rate schedule under 'additional info about our rates' section ) who would not have the need for a second bedroom. The Outside Bedroom 2 is never available for booking by another party during a 1br/1bth rental, insuring privacy & exclusive use of the property. The back yard opens to a large Tiki hut right on the water. Under its roof you'll find swinging hammocks & dining table for relaxation, cocktail hour or outside dining while you BBQ. Scenic & on the water, manatees and Loggerhead turtles do come by to visit. There is a large dock for guests with boats & plenty of room for trailer storage on property. There is immediate bay and ocean access for flats or deep sea fishing, lobstering, diving and water activities. Also (with additional charges) we offer optional small motor boat rentals (available only with the cottage booking) capable of being used by couples for island hopping, scenic on water exploring, and boat only accessible beaches. This is definitely a NON-SMOKING, NO PET rental.

About Kenneth E. Solis

I grew up in Dade County and Biscayne Bay where my family always enjoyed boating, diving, and general water activities. I became a firefighter and retired from Dade County Fire Department after 31.5 years of service.

Kenneth E. Solis purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Kenneth E. Solis chose Duck Key

I always enjoyed spending so much time in the Florida Keys with friends on this, and other islands. I grew a fond attachment to this particular island for its old style Fla. Keys ambience. This island fishing village is unique to the Fla. Keys experience and it is easy to visualize why so many chose to call it home.

What makes this cottage unique

Centraly & practicly located, it is exactly the hafway mark from the mainland to famous Key West, approximately 1.5 hour drive to either, from the property. Locateed adjacent to the Long Key bridge it provides immediate bay and ocean access to the best diving, fishing, kayaking, beaches, and boating activities in the Keys without having to travel time consuming miles to reach a location to cross over from the bay to the ocean or vise versa for water activities. Far enough to feel disconnected from mainland society and relax on the hammocks under the Tiki hut in a very romantic setting.

Had an Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5
Truly a "turn-key" vacation. The cottage was very comfortable and the hammocks under the chickee hut were our favorite spot. We prepared meals inside and also on the backyard grill. We enjoyed taking the kayaks out and watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. The island was very quaint with a private beach for residents and close enough to Islamorada and Marathon that we could get away for drinks or groceries. Ken's hospitality was First Class. He made sure we had everything we needed. We will be telling friends and family and we will definitely be back. A Home away from Home.

Conch Key getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a great stay at this nice little cottage between Islamorada and Marathon. The house backs up to a short canal that allowed us access to the water and the ability to watch the sea life, including a manatee. The kayaks and the skiff were a great way to get out on the water.

The house was well set up and the kitchen fully stocked for cooking. There is a small store on the Key for supplies.

We spent time at the state parks on both Islamorada and Marathon and the drive was not too long.

Sweet retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent one wonderful, too short week at Ken's adorable, comfy, cozy cottage. Situated on a canal just a stone's throw from open water, this charming place "has it all." Excellent boating, canoeing, kayaking...fishing...and an ample hardscape backyard complete with Tiki hut, hammocks and old Florida charm. We spent a great deal of time out back just relaxing and watching the wonderful sunsets. Marathon and all it has to offer is just minutes away, so grocery shopping is simple and plentiful. Oh! You'll find FRESH lobster available right next door from the lobstermen themselves! And, keep your camera ready...manatees "visit up close and personal!!" a real thrill.

Ken's Cottage is the perfect spot to explore all that the Keys have to offer. My wife and I spent a great week seeing the sights/attractions/points of interest from Everglades NP to Key West.

The cottage was very comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed. The canal-side tiki hut was our favorite spot as it afforded us numerous opportunities to watch the fishermen come and go, plus observe the pelicans, fish, and manatees. Conch Key is quiet, peaceful, and close to everything you need for a great stay in the Keys.

We did not have a bad meal at any of the many restaurants we frequented. The best fish sandwich I've ever eaten was at the Lorelei Cafe in Islamorada. In Marathon be sure to eat at The Lazy Days Cafe and Keys Fisheries Restaurant. Evelyn's Cafe in Key Largo was an unexpected pleasant surprise on our drive north to Miami.

Ken's Cottage was all we needed (and more) for a very affordable, enjoyable stay in The Keys. If, and when, we return we will definitely stay there again. Thanks, Ken!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Kens Conch Key Cottage. The Cottage was very clean and cozy. The photos do not do it justice. My husband and our two teen age boys were very comfortable there. Loved the hammocks out back under the tiki hut. Great location for seeing the keys. Spent one day at the beach, another day in Key West but enjoyed the cottage so much that we were happy just spending our time there. We purchased live lobster right next door! Everyone on the island that we met were very nice. There is a great little convenience store within walking distance so if you forgot to bring something you did not have to leave the island. Would highly recommend this property. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Map

We offer small motor boat (option) rental for island hopping, boat only accessible beaches, & scenic exploration on the water close to land. Traditional beaches and state parks are close by also. Larger power boat rental, fishing charters, and fresh seafood are available literally feet away from the property. Also Hawks Cay resort, just around the corner offers a wide variety of water activities such as jet ski rental, para-sailing, powerboat rentals, and fish or dive charters. Lobstermen and local fishing guides with private charter boats are your neighbors and are happy to book a days activities. Fishing and diving are excellent and we are well situated with immediate bay and ocean access by boat. We have on many occasions caught our lobster dinners by snorkeling immediately around the island. Watching the neighbors bring in their daily fresh catch of fish, lobster, stone crabs, and tropical fish for aquariums is very interesting, and purchasing fresh caught from the neighbors for your meal, if you don't catch your own.
