Thanks for looking at our home and we hope to see you soon!
My wife and I purchased our home in 2009 while my wife was stationed at Key West Naval Base. We welcomed our two children while living in Summerland Key and we miss it very much. My wife is still active duty and we have been stationed away from paradise for now. We will be back!
Dustin Murray purchased this house in 2009
We had an awesome time in the Keys! The house was incredible and in a great location for everything you could possibly want to do. The landscaping with all the tropical plants, down to the stone walkways were so unique. We rented a boat across the street and had it right at our house for the entire week. The little patio/deck area was furnished with nice couch and chairs, ceiling fan, gas grill and hammock! The beds were all so comfortable and everything was so clean. Neighborhood was quiet and people very friendly and helpful. I was so impressed to see homes in the neighborhood that had garages for their airplanes! The outdoor shower was so nice and we could see the moon and stars every night taking a shower, so cool! We will definitely be back. I almost forgot to mention we went lobster fishing and caught 6, brought them home and had lobster for dinner one night. Every pot or utensil you need to cook up your catch is right at your fingertips! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us Dustin!
This house is in a great location, less than 30 minutes from Key West or Marathon. There is also a bus stop at the end of the road; 4 bucks takes you one way and drops you off about a block from Duval St without having to worry about finding a place to park. The outside patio is made up comfortably, and there is no house across the canal trading views. The canal itself was amazingly clear, and it was just a short boat ride out into the Atlantic or the Gulf. Quiet and safe neighborhood, the kitchen was well equipped, sheets and towels all in excellent condition, and I wish our climate could support an outdoor shower like this one. Overall great experience and wouldn't hesitate to try and stay here again if it was available.
We really enjoyed our time in the Keys. We stayed at this lovely home for 10 days and enjoyed every minute we were there. The home was very comfortable and cozy. We went back and forth to Key West almost everyday, but that was after we spent each morning on the back porch, drinking our coffee and enjoying the day. The canal right there, the fresh air and warm temperatures. The house was great and the outdoor shower was the best. Everyday into the outdoor shower, under the sun and palm trees. The bedrooms are adequate & comfortable. The extra bathroom was fine and the living area spacious. There was a gate that we bring our car off the street and could close. That was nice. We had an iguana visit us one morning from the neighbors. We have lots of pictures of him up close and personal. Although we did not use the kayaks or swim in the canal this is available. All I can say is that this was the best vacation I have been on in years, I was so relaxed when I came home, it was a slice of heaven for 10 days. We will be back for sure.
We stayed at this lovely canal home on Memorial Day weekend, and had a nice, relaxing weekend. The home has been nicely updated and maintained and we enjoyed the back patio and using the kayaks that were available. Dustin was very responsive and flexible, as we were looking for a last minute getaway for the holiday weekend. We would stay again.
Great time on key for Easter family reunion. This house was a perfect fit for our family visit, kitchen fully stocked with great pots and pans for large family meals. The house is well maintained, pictures provide very accurately what to expect. The outdoor area is awesome for hanging out and visiting. It is very private, nice garden. Dustin provided 2 very nice kayaks that we used daily to maneuver around canals and out to ocean. Canal is fun to watch for marine life. The outdoor shower was a very special treat, showering under stars, and in warmth of sun, we loved it!!! Dustin was great to work with, and I have to mention his neighbors were so friendly, and helpful. Key west was only a short ride, and the nearby restaurants were great. We will definitely look into renting this home again. It is a great place, on one floor, my father who is unable to climb stairs easily is looking to check Dustin's place out for the following winter.
Summerland Key is right in between the famous 7 mile bridge and Bahia Honda, a famous state park and beach area, and Key West. It has a quaint small town, quiet feel, while still boasting amenities, such as a small grocery store, gas, bank, etc. Only 10 minutes from a larger grocery store, and 25 minutes from the famous, historic party town, Key West. Have the best of both worlds!
