About Jan Dempsey Simkins

Natives of the west and mid-west regions, but love Florida and the Florida Keys. Avid scuba divers and bicyclists who love being out doors and especially love being on and under the water.

Jan Dempsey Simkins purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jan Dempsey Simkins chose Duck Key

This property is our home away from home. We travel frequently to this location to vacation and enjoy all that the Florida Keys has to offer. We have worked hard to make this Villa our home when we are on vacation, and strive to also make this Villa a home for each of our guests.

What makes this villa unique

This Villa is steps from the beautiful Tom's Harbor. Everything you could wish to do is right out your back door. Swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, and jet skiing, just to name a few. The sunsets are amazing every night and can be enjoyed from our back patio.

The town of Marathon is ten minutes away with charter facilities of every sort as well. The options are endless for this this middle keys villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I very much enjoyed our two night stay in your rental at the end of March.



My only suggestion would be to make the living room couch into a sleeper sofa. My tween/teen did NOT want to share the queen bed in one of the bedrooms, so my son slept on the couch. A sleeper sofa would have made it more comfy for him.

Paradise found!

We arrived on Saturday to a very pleasant surprise. The villa was just as we had hoped, quiet, beautiful views and all the amenities we were looking for to relax and get some fishing in while at the villa. Everything was there that is needed for an exceptional stay.

Our stay.

  • 4 of 5
We stayed 6 days during the week. Was quiet except for the painters, lawn mowers and the bug guy entering the home as the wife was drying her hair. The place is amazing. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Maybe they should coordinate with the maintenance people better. If you want to veg, this is the place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and will return to visit again soon. During the months of September and October the complex does receive many updates, and we are so happy that we have been able to receive updates to the exteriors of all of the Villas on the complex this fall. The Villas are so beautiful. We also receive monthly bug extermination to make our guests stays as comfortable as possible. However, I am sorry that that may have been an inconvenience for you during your stay. We do hope that you do return to visit the Keys and decide to stay at our Villa again.

Great Stay at Hawk's Cay

Great Stay at Hawk's Cay
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary with a few different stops on the east coast including two nights at Hawk's Cay. The villa was fabulous to say the least. Very spacious with a fully loaded kitchen, spectacular outdoor patio with a beautiful view of Tom's Harbor, two very nice bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Being October we pretty much felt like we were the only people there so it was very peaceful and quiet. Spent a day at Bahia Honda beach and twice went to Sparky's for both happy hour (.25c shrimp and wings) and dinner with Prime Rib and Lobster with great live music. Thanks Jan....we hope to return soon.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5
Hawk's Cay on Duck Key never disappoints and this townhome was no exception. Great views and ideal location 10-15 minutes from Marathon. Plenty to do in the resort and close to Dolphin Research Center, boating and fishing. Definitely would stay again.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
This property was just simply amazing. We had everything that we needed for our comfort. our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 toddlers, and everyone in our group was very well accommodated. The location on Tom's Harbor was breathtaking, and we were able to enjoy the amenities offered by the resort. The Villa was well kept, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was fully stocked with the utensils that we needed to prepare meals. This villa was truly a home away from our home, and helped to make a wonderful vacation/staycation for us. We had a great time in the keys as always, but this was our first time visiting this property and Hawks Cay. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would certainly recommend this property to vacationers wanting to visit the keys. We will certainly consider staying at this villa again so long as it is available on the dates that we need!
