Overview

About the property

3 bdrm/3bth Gated Home on quiet street with swimming canal & room for boats

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.

**We have remodeled all bathrooms October 2016**

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. I have fond memories of my childhood in the Keys and still have many friends there. I know almost every local resident on the island and will be happy to give advice on restaurants, fishing charters, beaches & things to do. While I now live in Miami Beach with my husband, we still visit our home whenever is it available.

Yiliam Eldridge purchased this house in 1996

Why Yiliam Eldridge chose Lower Florida Keys

This is my family home that I love and will never sell. My father bought this home after coming from Cuba, when I was a child. My husband and I enjoy updating and remodeling it every off-season, as well as just enjoying it when we can. 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/Miami Modern style that is homey, clean 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.

Absolutely loved staying here.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love staying here. Another couple, my wife, and myself stayed at the house from April 6th to the 10th. My buddy and me had fun catching fish from the canal, while our wives relaxed. The house had everything you would need for your stay. The beds are very comfortable. My wife loved how big the shower was in the master bathroom. The location is also perfect. The neighborhood is very quiet. It great for the relaxing vacation we were looking for.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us and a great location. The owner answered the phone anytime i had a question, and was very helpful during our stay. The house was beautiful and the canal was amazing. The water was a little cold to be swimming, but i did get in there and it was very nice. we also did a lot of fishing off the side. We even saw a shark one night (not a huge one). Definitely would stay here again and recommend this place to anyone.

We have stayed here several times. The location in the lower Keys is perfect. The property has everything needed for a perfect vacation. The owner always seems to make improvements as needed. This continues to be our favorite.

Beautiful home in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location to enjoy the excitement of the Key's, and then be able to relax in the quiet of this peaceful retreat. Yiliam's home was spotless and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. She responded to my many questions without delay, and made us feel welcome in her home. We are so thankful to be able to stay in this amazing home in beautiful Key West!

Winter break Girls trip feb 2017

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the lovely accommodations. Awesome location if you want to spend more of your time on key west. Owners are quick responders and give great information. We loved having our own Channel to watch all the fish go by. We also saw a couple of star fish and a crab! Busy down in the keys at this time of year middle of feb. Only bummer has been the traffic. If you think it will take 10 mins it will take 20mins. We came for winter break. But not complaining about the sites the nice people the wonderful house and warm sun. I would highly recommend to friends and family.

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. Enjoy the hammock under the coconut palms by the clean canal while watching the parrot fish swim by, or wait for a nice snapper to bend your fishing pole without leaving the yard.

Golf: Golf course is 5 miles away.
