Cudjoe Key House Rental Photos and Description
Beautiful, 5/3 waterfront Home.....Max 10+ Discounts for smaller partys

Located in beautiful Cudjoe Gardens, an upscale subdivision this large, beautiful (newly remodeled) custom island home is ground level with a circular drive through a two-car carport. You won't have to deal with stairs. There is plenty of room for vehicles and trailers. Inside the dining area seats 10, large florida room, and large custom kitchen have huge picture windows overlooking the water. The master bedroom/bath has a king size 'Sleep# Bed'. The second and third bedrooms have a nice bathroom across the hall. The 4 and 5 bedroom and 3rd bath are located in the mother-in-law suite. The mother inlaw suite also has 2 bedrooms, one very nice bathroom, kitchen and a beautiful living room that will seat at least 10, complete with entertainment system. The 11' by 50' of porch is waterfront and includes a wet bar, outdoor living room furniture, table and chairs, grill, Spa and 4 new ceiling fans. Our beautiful Palm and Orchid Garden (Nancy's Dream Garden) is in complete shade. That garden includes a 2 person hammock and adirondack chairs. A fairly new 47 jet Spa is in the South Garden setting overlooking our waterfront. The 120' wide seawall with swim ladder offers great sunsets, plenty of room for your boats and some amazing snorkeling/swimming. Almost the entire property is covered by soft automatic landscape lighting, because it is very dark in the Keys. We also have an automatic 250w green underwater fish light. You won't believe the amount of fish that it attracts every night. This property is built and furnished for us.....but you can enjoy it for less than most hotel rooms.

Amenities: Large custom kitchen, 2 washers and dryers, 46' and 42' cable TV, VCR, DVD, BluRay, stereo, CABLE internet computer and property WIFI coverage, ceiling fans everywhere, outdoor wet bar, 1 quality stainless gas grills, a fish cleaning station, glass block and bamboo outdoor shower (hot and cold water), 47 Jet Garden Spa, and everything else you will need like linens, dishes, cooking utensils, etc. The attached Mother-in-Law Suite opens into the main house if you so desire or you can use separate entrance. You will find it first class with all the good stuff like theater sound and beautiful decor. It also comes comes complete with its own full kitchen and all the utensils. THIS IS NOT YOUR ADVERAGE RENTAL HOUSE, We have a local caretaker, monthly landscape professionals, monthly bug service and we vacation there 3 or 4 times a year. We keep the property as perfect as possible....for your enjoyment.

Activities:: The house is ideally situated for diving and snorkeling in the waters of the Atlantic or Gulf. Nearby in the Atlantic (only about 6 miles) is Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary. In addition to Looe Key, you'll find Adolphus Busch Wreck, American Shoals, and the local surrounding waters abounding with beautiful areas to snorkel and dive. Eat and drink at some of the wonderful local restaurants within minutes of the house. Key West is about 20 minutes away and offers all the entertainment anyone could want.

Cudjoe Key......20 minutes from Key West: You will notice this is more like a home than a RENTAL. We visit often and keep everything perfect. It is one of the safest, most beautiful places in the world. Cudjoe Marina and Dive Center at the end of our canal is very convenient for all your boating and diving needs. Sit on the back porch and watch the water, grill fresh lobster or fish, read a book, and enjoy boating or sight-seeing. Swim in the clean clear canal, snorkel for fish and Lobster, you don't even need a boat.

PRIVACY......There is a vacant lot directly across our wide canal and empty 1/2 lots on either side of our home. There are new porch shades that can be lowered that eleminate the direct sun and provide a 30'+ private porch. From inside the porch you can see out but you can not see in. We keep it cool the porches cool with 4 - 52' ceiling fans. Landscaping provides privacy for almost everywhere else. Even the Spa and Gardens on both sides of the property are very private. For sun there are large waterfront decks. Road noise is almost nonexistent.

Alan Fordham purchased this house in 1997

We love the Keys and found renting a real chore. You never get what you think you will. So we purchased a beautiful home in a beautiful location. Then we went to work on making it better and better. No home is ever finished....although ours is almost perfect. We will probably make it even better on our next visit.

You wont find a more comfortable, complete home for rent in the Keys. Don't forget Location...Location. Alan Fordham

There is a Heaven on Earth

Yes, there is a heaven on earth and it is this beautiful Cudjoe Garden Home. Our daughter said that this was the best vacation she ever had. Our Boys just loved fishing and swimming in the canal. Everyone caught fish, but me.
How I hate to give up having my morning coffee on the porch watching the canal come to life. The shades of blue and turquoise cannot be duplicated. I will leave with a sweet sense of peace that I shall return to time and again in my mind. When my nerves get frazzled I will mentally return to this little piece of Eden. Now it is time to say good bye. We really had a great time and the home was clean and beautiful!
Thank You, The Sorokowsky Family

My experience was wonderful, having the house at ground level was great, owners are very caring and provided us with the information we needed to make our visits to Key West enjoyable. Marina very close by for boat launching. Great House
