About the property

3 BR 2 BA -- sleeps 6 maximum

Key West private home on the water overlooking the Salt Ponds Protected Bird Sanctuary - family owned for three generations. MONTHLY RENTAL ONLY. Enjoy the peace and serenity and privacy of our home while only ten minutes away from the fun of Duval St. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets with beautiful unencumbered views over the mangroves. Dock your boat at the sea wall and be in open sea in three minutes. Relax around the large free form pool or jump on the bikes and explore the island. Slip the kayaks into the water and drift through the mangrove tunnels right across the canal. Fish directly off the stone deck out back and catch anything from snapper to grouper. Throw them right on the grill and have dinner by the water. A family owned home still used by the owners, Dragonfly will give you the feeling of visiting an old friend instead of an anonymous rental unit. This l950's retro-chic house is furnished with an eclectic combination of custom furniture, family antiques and wicker in an exclusive area of Key West not usually on the rental market. If you are looking for that condo feel, this is not the place to go, but if you want a home away from home that is totally relaxing Dragonfly is for you.

Key West Home/Pool on the Water
average rating of 4.625 based on 8 reviews

Great water access for kayaking and boating!

  • 4 of 5

This house was exactly what we were hoping for. We brought our boat and enjoyed fishing and diving for lobster many days. The pool is refreshing after a hot day of boating or kayaking. Quiet neighborhood but close enough to bike to Old Town. Needs more outdoor furniture for outside dining however. Great time overall!

my 2 cents

  • 3 of 5

The home has much character kind of like my house so I felt at home. Easy to get out to Atlantic and Gulf unfortunetly the weather was not cooperating for us. I especially like the pool and all the gardens. If I was staying there again I most certainly want a freezer for ice. and most of all calm seas! I Most certainly recommend this home to my friends. Not into partying toooooo much so I stayed away from Duval and enjoyed the rest of the city. Love the food at El siboney Cuban food! the wines bring your own!

This is a state of mind, not a vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

This is an authentic 60's era architecture house on the waterway and salt marsh. Very well-maintained and charming. The back patio is covered and a wonderful place to spend the day reading, and watching the boats, kayaks, paddle boarders, manatees and tarpon roll by. We sat out there during a fierce squall and stayed dry. The pool is wonderful, there are always areas in shade and sun to move around in. Good kayaks and Bikes at your disposal. Wifi, big screen TV, excellent washer/dryer, great vintage full kitchen, neat sunken living room, comfortable beds with good mattresses, kickass air conditioning, very private, great jogging neighborhood,... A week here and your mind will be in a better place!

Everyday I stayed just got better and better

  • 5 of 5

A serene and wonderful spot. The outside view over the mangrove is amazing. Kayaking in the back each morning was fantastic - with the occasional manatees swimming by. The pool is made for relaxing and watching sunsets. The decor is primarily 50s and it's a normal home with everything you need. If that's not your thing or you want something fancy however, this may not be the place for you. We loved it.

Perfect place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that at first I was a little concerned about the location for this property as it looks on the map to be a long way away from Duval and some of the other hotspots of Key West, but I found after arriving that this really enhanced my stay. Being away from all of the night-time craziness allowed me and my family to have a much more enjoyable and relaxing trip.

A few gems from the trip that we haven't been able to get at other places in Key West:

1) Taking out the sea kayaks to explore the mangrove swamp behind the house;

2) Set up the ping pong table and doing my best Forrest Gump impersonation;

3) Petting the manatees that came right up to the seawall behind the house (I'm sure someone will scold me for doing this, but c'est la vie);

4) Cooking up some fresh lobsters and grouper on the grill;

5) Jumping in the canal behind the house after a day at Smather's Beach.

This is a great property that really makes you feel at home. I can't wait to go back again!

Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the photos on Homeaway don't do this home any justice. The home is absolutely beautiful and is located in "new town" which is away from all the noise and touristy stuff in "old town" near Duval St. My wife an I go to Key West 2 - 3 times per year and only stay at this property. The home is really set up for enjoying being outside. The house site on the only canal in Key West and it was fun to sit in the pool and watch boats, kayakers and paddleboarders roll by. One boat even threw us a couple of fresh snapper they just caught! The mangrove forest (an attraction that people pay to kayak through) is right on the other side of the canal and there are two kayaks at the can just go at your liesure. There is also a ping-pong table, two beach cruiser bikes, a grill, lounge chairs and a huge covered area outside in case of rain or if you just want to get out of the sun for a bit! Being here gives you a true sense of what's like to actually live in the Key West paradise.
