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 September 2016**

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
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 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.
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.
We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this home to anyone wanting a vacation home near Key West. Neighborhood was very nice and the home was easily accessed. We would readily stay here again.
Was great location away from tourist area but close enough to go everyday. Spent honeymoon for 7 days and was the greatest. Plan on staying with whole family next time. Had everything in home you need. Fishing in canal was great and all neighbors very friendly. Felt safe with neighborhood but still had our privacy.
The home is beautiful and well equipped, very quiet location. We enjoyed the stay very much and would stay there again without hesitation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
