Overview

Lower Florida Keys House Rental Photos and Description

3 bdrm/3bth Gated Canal Home on quiet street with swimming canal

This is a beautiful Spanish style home on a clean swimming canal 9 miles from Duval Street, Key West. Our home is just 4 houses from the end of the canal and the backwaters of the Gulf. Many uninhabited islands are nearby for exploring and discovering. Fishing and Lobstering are excellent as most tourists don't find this area. In the crystal clean canal you can pick out which snapper you want to catch without leaving the back yard. Located on a quiet street, this home is close enough to town for fun, but far enough for peace and quiet.

The completely fenced home includes two entry gates and water fountain in the front. Bring your boat, or rent a boat and keep in the canal behind the house. Boat ramps are 2 miles away. Large circular driveway will accept numerous cars and/or boats and trailers.

Our home is clean and neat with wood floors in living areas, new appliances, central A/C, cable TV, wireless internet, washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen.

Amenities:: Fully equipped kitchen, Cable TV, WIFI, DVD, washer/dryer, Hair Blow dryer, Iron/Ironing Board, linens, bicycles, clean swimming canal, totally fenced yard, just bring your tooth brush. Very quiet neighborhood.

Activities:: Boating, fishing, swimming canal, snorkeling, diving.

Area:: 5 miles from Key West.

About Yiliam Eldridge

I'm Cuban born and moved to Key West when I was 13. I lived in Key West until I was 26. This is my family home that I love and will never sell. Although I now live in Miami Beach with mu husband we love our Keys home and visit as often as possible.

Why Yiliam Eldridge chose Lower Florida Keys

This is my family home that I love and will never sell. Although I now live in Miami Beach with my husband, we love our Keys home and visit as often as possible. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

What makes our home unique is the quiet and friendly neighborhood. There are only two streets on our Key. The clear swimming canal is like a tropical aquarium with many species of colorful fish as well as good eating snapper. We've decorated our home in a comfortable Keys/Modern style that is homey and uncluttered.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Four members of our family stayed a week during March 2010 and had a great time. The home is everything as advertised and more. The owner was very helpful with local suggestions for activities and places to dine. The home was well stocked and maintained, I would definitely recommend to family and friends and we'll be back also. For the eldest member of the family the stairs were a bit of a challenge but she managed, we called it her physical therapy for the week.

Very clean, well stocked house on nice canal!

  • 5 of 5

This house was very comfortable, and we had a great week staying there. Close enough to Key West, but far enough away. The canal was great for our boat. The kids snorkeling in it.

Close to everything, but far enough away for quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just as advertised! Beautifully decorated inside, plenty of room for everyone! Nice sized kitchen, extremely clean. Fully stocked kitchen with all the amenities of home. Water was beautiful, great for fishing and swimming. Perfect location for going to both Key West and Big Pine Key, but away from the noise and traffic. Great place to stay! Looking forward to our next visit.

Beautiful Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home on a canal just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of Key West. Our son lived in Key West Old Town for 7 years and we fell in love with the uniqueness of the Keys. For our first visit back since he transferred we decided to stay up the Keys just a bit. The house and yard are beautiful -- everything you could wish for in a home away from home. Everything was spotless with extra nice bed linens and comfortable beds. We didn't do a lot of cooking but the kitchen is equipped for anything -- even large pots for a Low Country Boil if you so desired. The next time we return to the Keys we will certainly book this home again.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location without being in the high traffic areas. House was wonderful and had everything you would need. House was very clean. 6 adults had plenty of room and especially enjoyed the canal in the back. Saw lots of fish and actually fished a little while relaxing looking at your own "aquarium"! Quiet neighborhood and felt very safe while there. Excellent transaction with the owner and they actually checked on us while we were there. I appreciated that gesture. Had good food very close to the home at Bobalu's.

Attractive house, clean and "vacation ready" just as advertised. We are 6 large adults and found it nice and roomy. LOCATION: Quiet and safe road, very nice canal for swimming and fishing, quick access to Key West or back up #1 to the rest of the lower keys. The house is in the quiet "middle" of the lower Keys dining and attractions.

The administrative part of our stay went very smoothly. We did not have a single negative. It was hard for us to leave and we all would love to stay here again.

Wow - beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was huge, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The BBQ looked as though it had never been used and there was a brand new hammock for those lazy days by the water.

The house has a large gated driveway with a shaded area underneath the home to keep the car cool. There is a basketball net in the driveway and a few rods and reels in the shed. The neighbourhood felt very safe.

All of the beds had great mattresses and the living room area was a lovely place to relax and watch TV on the large screen. The wifi was excellent. The fridge freezer, cooker and microwave were massive. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, cutlery and the fridge and spice drawer was too.

The balcony provided a lovely view of the canal and a place to sunbathe on the sun-loungers, 3 in total I think. The canal was spotlessly clean although we did not swim in it but I did enjoy the fishing.

The house was in a perfect location as you are away from the craziness of Key West but only a short drive if you would like to visit.

The owner Yiliam was so helpful and told me I could call at any hour, I felt she would try her best to ensure my family and I had a perfect holiday.

I would definitely recommend this house even for large families.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay!

Map

Our home is between mile marker #9 & #10, 9 miles from mile marker #0, the end of U.S.Hwy. 1 in the heart of Key West. We are about 5 miles from town, groceries, restaurants, scooter rentals, Kmart, etc, 5 miles to beaches, 3 miles to the golf course, 2 miles to boat ramps, 1/4 mile to a large convenience store/gas station, and 1/8 mile to Bobalu's Southern Cafe for great fish, barbecue, pizza, etc. We are close enough to Key West to get where the action is in 10 minutes, and far enough away for peace and quiet. Our canal is great for floating on a raft, diving off the sea wall, swimming and fishing. For a lot more pictures of our home and the surrounding area go to Facebook and search 'Calle Dos'.

Golf: Golf course is 5 miles away.
