Overview

Tavernier House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 bath waterfront lush estate steps from the Beach

This oceanside tropical estate is perfect for your family vacation or romantic get away. We are centrally located with easy ocean access and just steps from one of Key Largo's only sandy beaches. Only 4 houses in from open ocean; Tavernier Key is within view and Tavernier Creek cuts through to the bayside just minutes south of our channel. Your entire family will enjoy a relaxing day at the adjacent Harry Harris Park which offers balmy ocean breezes, great open-water views, lagoon, boat ramps, fishing, children's playground/ swings, picnic areas, basketball courts and baseball fields. Enjoy relaxing at sunset from the hammock or Adirondack chairs as the kids enjoy our professionally landscaped yard with open grassy area to play. This gated estate is secure and lush! Begin your morning on the front porch as you watch the sunrise while you sip your cup of coffee. Stroll over to the beach and gaze out at the Atlantic Ocean or read a book under a palm tree with your toes in the sand. Unwind after a long day in our hot tub/spa overlooking our canal as it opens to the ocean. Bring your boat to enjoy fishing, diving in near by reefs, or water skiing and tubing off the shallows of Tavernier Key. Enjoy exploring the coastline or head out a few miles east to Pickles Reef or Christ the Abyss. Bring your bathing suits and 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' attitude!

About Beth and Dan Kalbac

Dan and Beth both grew up in Miami and have raised 4 beautiful children in South Florida. We have so many great memories of precious family times at our tropical paradise. Now that the 'kids' are heading off to college and grad school, we want to share the joy we've experienced in this beautiful place God has blessed us with.

Beth and Dan Kalbac purchased this house in 2002

Why Beth and Dan Kalbac chose Tavernier

Beth spent vacations in the house right next door to this one! We wanted our kids to be able to make memories and enjoy family time in the same area! The ocean views from Harry Harris Beach inspire and restore!

What makes this house unique

Because it is on the water facing south and is adjacent to a sandy beach and sunrises to the east, this double lot with large gated yard and swaying palms is perfect for all ages. The separate in-law quarters makes it a great place for family gatherings or relaxing escapes anytime of year!

Paradise Getaway in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this beautiful vacation home was truly a gift from God! The location, dwelling, and manicured property are ideal for a family or couple seeking an opportunity to get away from modern life’s accelerated pace, and slow down to appreciate the really important things in life. Less than a minute walk away is the entrance to Harry Harris Park, which offers a splendid view of daily sunrises - all of which were different. The park has a small beach inside a protective rock barrier to the Atlantic Ocean where people can swim or children can play in the sand. The park also serves as an excellent location for early morning walks. The local fish markets enabled us to have fresh fish or shrimp on the gas grill. This property is a convenient distance from Everglades National Park and the South Miami area. It is also well positioned to home-base if your intent is to explore the Florida Keys. The owners Dan and Beth are delightful and caring people. Beth was very responsive to all of our questions.

Owner's Response: What a blessing to share our vacation home and know that it was a place of rest and restoration...from sunrise to sunset! Can't wait to see you same time next year for another time "in paradise".

Extremely Relaxing Stay in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Kalbec home for the month of January 2015. The lush tropical foliage and extra large yard with hammock was so inviting...the best landscaped yard in the neighborhood! The home is very cozy with plush towels, comfortable bed, stocked kitchen, and nice furnishings. The spa/hottub directly outside the master bedroom was a real treat. The screened porch was clean with comfortable furniture and where we spent most of our time. Having access to the paddle boards was a real plus as we used them frequently for many adventurous trips to the ocean. Harry Harris park, which is literally outside the front door, was good for walking and enjoying the wide open water views & sunsets. There are many different restaurants with decent food within a short drive...our favorite for Sunday brunch was Made 2 Order. A trip to Bahia Honda was worth a day on the 'untouched' beach...gorgeous water and peaceful atmosphere. Beth & Dan prepared the home well for our arrival, were very easy to deal with and responsive to any concerns/issues. Renting a boat would have been a tremendous addition to the trip.
