Overview

Sombrero Beach Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom (Sleeps 2); 2 Bedroom (Sleeps 4)

Sunset Villas, located on a small quaint island called Conch Key (mile marker 63 - between Marathon and Islamorada), offers quality, affordable OPEN WATERFRONT vacation rentals. Each one or two bedroom villa includes complimentary deep-water dockage (park your boat right in front of your villa!) and use of our on-site boat ramp. Located just west of Long Key Channel, you can be in the Atlantic Ocean in 5 minutes for fishing, lobstering, snorkeling and diving. We also offer discounted fishing packages in the off season and can refer you to local boat rentals or dive/snorkel charters. Please note that we do not allow Jet Skis at our location.

The one bedroom (700 square feet) has a King size bed as well as a pull-out futon. The two bedroom (900 square feet) has a king size bed in one bedroom and two double beds in the other bedroom, as well as a futon in the living room. Each villa has a spacious living & dining area and a full size kitchen. We know you will be very happy with the size and quality of our accommodations.

We provide our guests with a comfortable outdoor area, which includes a gas grill, hammock, a tree top deck, and two bicycles for touring the island and fishing bridge. We also have an ocean kayak available for guest use free of charge! We have swim ladders from our docks for snorkeling and swimming in the clear waters that surround our location.

Give us a call - we think we are the best OPEN WATERFRONT vacation rental around! Be sure to click on the link to our home page below for additional pictures, information and specials.

Please note that we do our best to maintain the online calendar, but please call to double check availability information. Since the online calendar refers to both of our villas a quick call or e-mail is needed to determine whether the 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom is available for your dates of interest. Please recognize standard rates and off season rates are for 1-bedroom villa only. 2-bedroom off season (mid-Aug. to mid-Dec.) rates are $140/night or $895/wk and $195/night or $1,295/wk in season (mid-Dec. to mid-Aug.).

About Bill and Katrina Wiatt

Sunset Villas, which was formerly known and operated as Harry's Fishing Lodge, is owned and operated by Capt. Bill and Katrina Wiatt. Bill and Katrina met at Virginia Tech in the '80s, lived in Texas during the '90s, then 'kicked the corporate life' and purchased this beautiful Conch Key property in 1998.

Bill and Katrina Wiatt purchased this villa in 1998

Why Bill and Katrina Wiatt chose Sombrero Beach

Location, Location, Location! Bill had the vision within 5 minutes of walking on to this property ... and Sunset Villas was born soon after. Boaters, water lovers and fishermen alike keep coming back, year after year, to enjoy our piece of paradise on Conch Key - it is truly a Place for the Chosen Few.

What makes this villa unique

Sunset Villas on Conch Key offers some of the most fabulous OPEN WATER sunset views in the entire Florida Keys! We literally can see the sunset 365 days of the year ... each and every one is unique and special in its' own way. We also have boat dockage directly on the Gulf of Mexico with access to the Atlantic Ocean in less than 5 minutes via the Long Key Channel Bridge. Conch Key still has the feel of the 'old-time' Keys, so come and visit and see why we have over 85% return customers staying with us.

We Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a quiet hideaway in the keys this is absolutely the perfect place. Beautiful water with the most beautiful sunsets! We stayed in the Captain's Quarters and it was perfect for two. Very spacious, very clean; a wonderful get-a-way with the conveniences of home. We brought our boat and it was so nice to be literally just steps away to the dock from our villa. Islamorada and Marathon are also conveniently close for shops and restaurants. The decks, hammock and quiet atmosphere were what we enjoyed the most! Choose Sunset Villas and unplug! Loved it! Thank you Katrina and Bill for sharing an amazing piece of paradise!

Wonderful Keys Destination

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable Captain's Quarters one-bedroom unit. Can't imagine a better spot, especially at such an attractive rental rate. Enjoyed breakfasts and sunset dinners on the flower-encircled, water-view patio just outside the unit's front door. Katrina and Bill are personable, live-in owners more than willing to provide guests with restaurant and attraction recommendations, and very, very experienced fishing and boating guidance. Convenient middle-Keys location. We hope to return soon.

Relaxing, Secluded What the Keys are all about! No Worries!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in The Captain's Quarters a Very clean Large well equipped 1 Bdr. Apt. steps away from the water. Very Tropical quiet place with many of places to sit and relax on the lounge chairs, hammock, Covered Bar & upper deck. We watched the sunset and relaxed. Located just a short drive between Marathon & Islamorada. Nice little fishing pier & Boat dock just outside your door weather did not cooperate the week we were there it was small craft warnings so we didn't get rent a small boat for a few days. But Bill set us up with Dave that also lives on Conch Key and made it out on his boat for a great day on the water. We Can't wait till or next visit! Thanks Bill & Katrina Hope to see ya next Dec.

Beauitful Sunsets and Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Florida and it definitely will not be the last. We had a great time and recommend staying here. We went tarpon fishing. Catching a tarpon was quite a workout. That was one of the many highlights to our trip.

Perfect Place, Perfect Host, Perfect Location..

  • 5 of 5

Imagine this, you drive onto the small quiet Conch Key with anticipation, wondering if what you saw on the website was true. There was only one road in and one road out, and you wondered momentarily if you made the right choice. It’s obviously a tiny community and you aren’t sure if this will be what you expected.

Well, when we pulled up to Sunset Villas and went through the gate, it was nothing but great. Tropical plants and palms lined and shaded the gated entrance until the water came into view. The hammock between two palms, the boat dock, the Bar-B-Q area with the tiled bar and upper deck seating for watching the sunsets every night. arrrg, makes you want this to be your home, so nice.

The villa itself was beautiful, clean and well appointed. The beds were comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed. The area is quiet, secluded and peaceful-a great place to relax and enjoy time together. Also, just a short drive to Marathon Key for restaurants, shopping and beaches.

We were greeted by Bill and Katrina and given the lay of the villa while we waited for our boat rental for the week… They made us feel welcome immediately, and we truly felt like this place was our home for the week. While getting acquainted with the outdoor area, a manatee meandered under and around the dock and my wife got to rub its back. Later we got to see a family of sea turtles that seemed to love the area around the dock throughout the week.

If you are a fisherman out of state looking to fish, it took me a while, but chum and live bait were the answer, chum being the key. Sunset Villas is the prime location for the reef about 7 miles out and about 26 miles to Marathon Hump. We caught Cero Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Black fin tuna (on the hump), Yellow Tail snapper, Barracuda, and Bonito for bait and chunking.

Just an awesome week and we will be back.

THIS VACATION IS WHAT YOU'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR...

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Villas was absolutely beautiful and just what we both needed, from fishing on the dock each night to relaxing in the chairs and watching the awesome sunsets. The villa was very clean and accomodating, we couldn't of asked for more. It was so nice(having our coffee/tea each morning) as we walked out of our door to what we can only describe as heaven on earth. We spent many days & nights right there at the villa, there is so much to enjoy....bicycles, kayaking and just enjoying all the beautiful fish that were right off of the dock, we even had the pleasure of seeing manatees. We have so many happy memories we will cherish forever. We certainly look forward to returning. Thank you so much Katrina and Bill for your wonderful hospitality.
