Lower Florida Keys House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to Murphy's Landing, which is a large home on a clear, flow through swimming canal. With 65 feet of seawall, and 4.5 feet of control depth, even large sail boats can be accommodated here. We are only three minutes to the ocean, only 15 minutes to Looe Key Reef, and there is excellent back country access as well. Every water activity is at your back door.

Our home provides every comfort you might need. There are four bedrooms, two of which open cable TV, and each has easy access to a bath. Wireless internet access is included as well. All linens, appliances, and cookware are nearly new. For the convenience of larger groups, there are two complete kitchens, and a great screened porch to eat and mingle on while watching the boats go by. Everything is fresh; everything is clean, clean, clean. Sorry, but pets are NOT allowed and no smoking is permitted in Murphy's Landing.

Our home is centrally located at Mile Marker 25 oceanside. Bahia Honda State Park, with its world famous beach, is only 12 minutes away. Marathon, with its parks, shopping, restaurants, golf, museums, and Sombrero beach, is only 25 minutes away. Key West, with its many great eateries, shops, and other diversions, is equally close at only 20 miles away. Several dive services are within ten minutes, and boat rental is available on Summerland Key. Many fine restaurants are within five miles.

Why David and/or Gina Murphy chose Lower Florida Keys

Our property is not the cheapest on Summerland Key, but it is one of the largest homes with four bed rooms, three and one-half baths, and great porches. Thus our home is great for larger groups and its central location places us in the middles of all the middle/lower Keys have to offer!

Amazing !!! The Murphy's were so attentive, the place was spotless and well maintained. Lower level screen porch great for morning and evening meals, upper level decks off the bedrooms have great views. Outdoor shower perfect after a day on the water. Ample parking space and sits back off the road for privacy. Great restaraunts nearby and only 25 min from Duvall street

nice home

  • 5 of 5

We were able to stay, for the second time, at this fine home. The home is large and comfortable, with many TVs and internet access. We especially enjoyed the clean canal great for swimming: you just need to watch out for the boats. There was plenty of seawall for our boat, and cleanup was easy with the handy water hose and outside shower. The bananas growing on the property, as well as the many tropical flowers, were also a plus. Most important, however, was the ease of access to both Looe Key as well as the bay. The channel is well marked and easy to follow. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anyone.
