About The Owner

We have been going to Key West for at least 20 years. My wife and I decided to buy our retirement home in 2004 so we would have an opportunity to use it while we are still young enough to enjoy everything Key West has to offer. We love the boating, fishing, diving and of course the night life. If you love music Key West is the place! Being a long time dog owner, one of the first things we did is to wall the property so they couldn't get out, which also gave us a lot of privacy.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Lower Florida Keys

When looking to buy our retirement home we knew we didn't want to live right in town because it was too busy, yet we didn't want to be out of Key West. We were looking for a home with dock space and deep water access and also a private pool. When we found Key Haven there was no doubt in our minds that it would be a perfect location for what we were looking for. We found our home while cruising the canals of Key Haven and the rest is history.

What makes this house unique

The most important thing is privacy, privacy, privacy. We have great neighbors, it is a safe and quiet neighborhood. Living on the water was our dream and buying this home has made that dream come true. The pool area was very open when we bought our home but we soon realized we needed more privacy, hence the natural growth inside the wall that surrounds the property. The large porch area is great for reading on a rainy day, morning coffee and nightly cocktails. This is a great spot for romantic dinners.

Key West Vacation Home on Canal, Dock, Pool
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Beautiful home and great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

If your are looking for a beautiful house located on a canal for a quiet and relaxing vacation this is house for you. You will not be disappointed with your choice!! The homeowners have it decorated so beautifully. You will fall in love with the tile floors throughout the house. It is also only 5 minutes from a large grocery store. Plus you can be right in the middle of Duval Street in 10 minutes. Even though it is close to all this it is still quiet and secluded. The house is stocked with anything that you might need. It even has a great exercise room downstairs. Has any type of exercise equipment that you may need. After exercising I suggest a dip in the pool. The pool is so relaxing and private. You will be amazed at all the fresh pineapples that they have planted in pots around the grounds. If you have a boat or renting a boat for your stay the boat dock is a great plus. I suggest trying some of the local eating establishments. We highly recommend eating at The Hogfish (just minutes from the house). We would definitely rent this home again.

Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes for vacation for over 15 years and I have to say we have never stayed in a more well stocked or thought out rental.

-so much space for bigger groups

- clean, new and so functional

- place is bigger and better then pics on line

- u can ride bikes into key west

- boat ramp in neighborhood, however u have to play the tides if bigger boat, ours was 30' Ocean Runner

High tide a must

- Little tricky getting out to Atlantic, very shallow and not marked well, especially going to Marina, watch bigger boats for a couple of minutes. Same leaving channel or coming into Key Haven make sure on plain, once u know ur good to go.

- Pool top rate

-Cleaning station perfect

- Comfy beds

- Kitchen stocked perfect

-Everything really was relaxing and enjoyable

Owners very easy to deal with. Thank you

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the house as much as we do. We didn't realize you were nervous about getting in and out of canal to the Atlantic. Our caretaker, would have been happy to help you out. It really isn't a big deal, it just takes some getting used to, you need to get up on plane at the last house at the end of the canal and you will be fine. We run our boat 31' Jupiter in and out all the time with no problem. So just let us know if you need a little guidance with the waters!

Excellent for families and close to Duval

  • 5 of 5

Your house was beautiful and thanks letting our family enjoy a part of your paradise. We all had a great time. There is nothing for me to suggest on what you need to add to your amenities. Rob was very helpful, especially on guiding us to some fishing spots. The pool area is great with lots of shade. The canal is situated perfect access to the Atlantic and Gulf. We enjoyed going fishing in the Atlantic and going to Snipes Beach on the Gulf side. Duval is literally 5 minute drive. All was great and hope to have the opportunity to stay again.

Very fun time

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for my family. 6 adults had plenty of room. The high end kitchen was fantastic. The way the house is set up is beautiful as well. Pictures dont really do it justice. Beyond great was the pool area. We spent most of our time there. It has both sun and shade areas and was awesome. If you want to relax and unwind, this is the place. Short drive to Duvall as well. notch!

Fantastic family vacation location near Key West

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 (Husband, Wife, & three daughters) enjoyed this wonderful home. The home was very clean and had plenty of room for my family. Pool was perfect and we all spent time in it. We had everything we needed at this home away from home. I even was able to sneak in a little work in the downstairs office/den area. Loved the floating dock for easy paddle board access to the canal. Probably the only negative is how darn hot the floating dock got from the sun. We would spray it down with the hose before getting on it after my first try with bare feet on the all black plastic dock, yikes! We didn't get a chance to use the grill on the upstairs balcony but it will be on our list next year when we stay again. Mike and Marcia have a perfect place close to Key West but out of the chaos of Duval St. Easily the best place I have rented over the past 6 years of going down to the Keys.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this home for the last three years to fish with my friends and family. We always have a great time. The recent renovations to the kitchen and baths were a nice surprise. You don't often find these nicer finishes in a keys home. We will look forward to returning next spring.
