About Bruce & Leslie Redler

Our full time home is in HIlton Head, SC. We both work in the health care profession.

In addition to our 'home away from home' condo, Crown Jewel, in Key West, we also have a part-time home in Brevard, NC.

We are active - between the two of us we love scuba diving, fishing, mountain biking, snowskiing, tennis, running (well, for a 5K distance anyway!).

Both of our children are out of the nest - and we are taking the opportunity to enjoy the freedom to spend more and more time in our favorite spot in all of the world - right here!

Bruce & Leslie Redler purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bruce & Leslie Redler chose Key West

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Key West has the most beautiful water of anywhere in the USA!! We are certified scuba divers, and the Florida Keys offer incredible dive opportunities within the confines of the continental United States. We also love live music - which is readily available at most hours of the day/night here in Key West.

Beautiful property!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay!! The condo is beautifully decorated, clean and has an amazing view!! It is so nice to have a pool, hot tub and the ocean right at your doorstep. Yet you are only minutes to Duval Street and all of the sights the Key West has to offer. We loved being right next to the best public beach in Key West, Smathers Beach. Highly recommend staying here!

We really enjoyed this lovely apartment! We especially enjoyed walking to Smathers Beach everyday, only a 3 minute walk. It is a great beach! If you go to Key West, this apartment is beautifully located!

Exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated condo with an awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was super clean and the beds were very comfortable. My family really enjoyed the huge balcony. We watched several cruise ships come and go. Although we didn’t eat in, we noticed the kitchen was well stocked. The bathrooms were spacious and updated. No detail was spared! Great vacation!

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed property with all the conviences of home. Very clean, comfortable bedding, multiple TV’s/entertainment options,great location and view. Have stayed at the property in the past, however this year the water main was replaced which resulted in a shut off from 9am-5pm. Ample notice was given although an inconvenience.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Key West has the most beautiful water of anywhere in the USA!! The Florida Keys offer incredible dive opportunities within the confines of the continental United States.

The Unique Benefits at this Condominium:

We love the tranquil, tropical garden/pool setting of our condo complex. Smather's Beach is right at our doorstep.

Yet, Duval Street - the hub of nightlife, dining and shopping, is just 5 minutes away to be enjoyed whenever we wish.

Our condo has a full oceanfront view - such that you don't even have to leave the condo to enjoy the beauty that Key West has to offer. Many a time, you just may find yourself getting stuck on 'The Perch'!!

Other Activities: Shopping. Parasailing, Boating
