House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Our plan was to check out the east and west coasts of Florida to find our retirement home then we decided to check out the Keys...No Contest! It's a whole different way of life that has to be experienced to be appreciated. You can see every type of sea life right off the dock in the day or night and Looe Key, one of the best dive and snorkeling spots in all of Florida, is just a few miles away. We live in Boston and get back to the Keys every chance we get until we can be here permanently.So many people have come down and shared our home and left notes in our guest book to back up our fascination with the Keys and its laid back lifestyle that compliments this unbelievable treasue of nature. Come down and experience the Keys. Ron and Dot.
Karen purchased this House in 2002
Why Karen chose Summerland Key
Summerland Key is close to the wild crazy fun of Key West but far enough away to close your eyes and soak in the quiet tropical breezes and sounds of the ocean. This island is close to great restaurants, shops and attractions like Bahia Honda State Park and Looe Key. Boat and Kayak rentals and charter fishing are just a few miles from the house..
What makes this House unique
Besides sitting by the pool under the Coconut Palms, there's snorkeling or fishing right off the dock. We've seen Dolphins, Manta Rays, Cuttlefish, all kinds of tropical fish, lobsters and shells, even jellys that light up like neon lights in the night time. Kayak and boat rentals are close by. There are dive moorings just off Little Palm Island and at Looe Key. The Tiki Hut and Boondocks restaurants are one Island away on Ramrod Key with plenty of other restaurants within a few miles. Then there's Key West...

A comfortable home.
The house was well equipped with all of the necessary items and all of kitchen items you need. The internet and the tv service was fast and all of the premium channels were available. The only downside was the pool was a bit small, but it was adequate. Unfortunately, the pool pump was not working properly when we were there and the pool was full of bugs and leafs which we had to clean out constantly.
Hey Lorre, sorry to hear you were a little unhappy with pool at the rental. We try to make everyones vacation a memorable one. Come back and see us and I will make sure the pool is chrystal clean for you. Take Care !
This is the fifth time we have spent a month at Seaclusion from mid November to mid December. The house is absolutely perfect, wonderfully equipped and is extremely spacious.
The dock offers great fishing for many different species from small snappers to barracuda and lemon sharks. we have seen spotted eagle rays,dolphins, turtles and manatees swimming by the dock.
There are excellent local restaurants and coffee shops nearby but the house is so perfect it is very tempting to stay put.
Karen is incredibly helpful and responsive.
We will be back next year!
Beautiful property in a perfect location
We had a family of 10 and visited for 1 week, plenty of room to accommodate everyone. The views were spectacular, the kids enjoyed the pool and it was nice there were some pool toys left there for our use. The dock allowed us to rent a 19 foot boat for several days and convenient to,come in and out of every day. The kids over fishing off the dock, and had some nice catches and saw some huge stingrays as well. Everything was clean when we arrived and the propert management staff was super frindltpy as well. Would definitely stay here again...
Perfect Keys Location!
We VERY much enjoyed our stay in this home. The place is SO roomy, clean & well stocked. The living room is great for a large group. The dock is in beautiful clear water and the location is perfect for all water activities. We would stay here again for sure!
Another Vacation for the books!
We love Seaclusion! This was our family's third trip here, and we had a blast. We traveled with 3 couples and 4 boys (ages 15, 8, 6 and 3). There is something for everyone to do here. My mom and I tied are floats to the dock and soaked up some sun while the boys snorkeled all around us and the guys fished. Seaclusion is our home away from home and I can't wait to get back down there, missing it already!
spring break stay
We stayed for a week with two families including four small kids. The house is clean and big....lots of room for two families and kids to spread out and enjoy your time while your there. The main living area on the second floor is huge with the kitchen, family room, and dinner table all together which is where all you will hang out most of the time. The headed pool is small but still big enough for the you to hang out in or the kids to play in ( with some pool toys that have been left by other visitors...thanks). The grounds are very private, you barely know there are neighbors, and the dock and water are amazing. We brought a small 20ft boat and the dock was perfect, it will accommodate a larger boat on the end with no problem. There is also plenty of room to keep a boat trailer at the house. The water behind the house is shallow and clear you and the kids can swim and snorkel right off the dock. We fished off the dock every day and caught alot of small grunt fish and a very small bonnet head shark, just buy some frozen shrimp bait at any grocery store near by. Now for some good things to know, if you have a boat you can use the ramp at Dolphin marina just north of the house for 10 bucks (in/out). If you don't you can rent one there for couple of hundred for the day. They were nice 19 and 20 foot cat center consoles. If your on a boat you can go to two near by reefs one is Looe Key which is 6 miles off shore due east of this house and is awesome. There is another reef very close to the house, only 5 min boat ride and is also very nice with lots of fish big coral heads and a very large resident sting ray which greeted us as we tied up the the mooring buoy. This is a lesser known reef called Newfound Harbor Key sanctuary. (its just on the ocean side of Little Palm Island private resort.) Also the key deer sanctuary is a short car ride away where you will see lots of key deer by car or hiking on the trails. In conclusion I would say that we would stay here again and were happy with our vacation house.
Thanks for taking the time to submit the review. You have highlighted two features we love about the house that are so rare in the Keys, privacy of the grounds and plenty of floor space! I see you got to Looe Key, it's one of the most fantastic underwater sites in all of the Keys and close by. Happy to hear you had a good time.
