Conch Key- An old-fashioned lobster and crab fishing village that can only accommodate a few lucky tourists who want great fishing and diving and a complete rest! You can often pick up fresh seafood from the local fishermen.
Conch Key Landing (CKL) is our family's unpretentious waterfront winter home which we invite you to share. It is completely equipped and spotlessly clean. We provide everything you need for a great vacation. CKL is directly on Florida Bay. A five minute boat ride from our protected dockage will take you under the US1 bridge to the oceanside flats, the reefs and the Gulfstream. Superb sunsets, bird and fish viewing. Lie in a hammock or relax in our comfortable deck chairs under the palms and let the world go by.
Our friendly, knowledgeable, property managers, live only two doors away. They are most happy to provide you with information about the Keys and to ensure that CKL remains in top condition so that you will have a pleasurable stay.
We have other units available. Please contact us for more information

We are a Canadian family, originally 6, now a family of 14 (and two dogs) who have been coming to the Keys for 25 years. Fifteen years ago, we discovered Conch Key and fell in love with it.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008
In 2008 'Conch Key Landing' (not the name at that time) came up for sale and we decided it would be an ideal place for our expanding family`s vacations, 'a home away from home'. We have enough accommodations on the property to house 10-12 people - perfect for a family reunion! We visit several times a year and have found that each season has its own appeal. We invite you to try some of the less busy times and become a member of the growing Conch Key Landing `club`.
During our times on Conch Key we have had great fishing - Bay and Ocean, super snorkeling, kayaking out to the sandy reefs at low tide, swimming in the warm water.We have often seen schools of dolphin passing by. On occasion manatees visit. From the dock you are able to observe tarpon at night and in the daytime - parrot fish, barracuda, many small tropical fish and once even a sawfish! Herons, egrets and pelicans often come to call.
The apartment has central air conditioning and heat. It has a fully equipped kitchen with a ceramic stove, refrigerator with icemaker, pots and pans, baking trays, cooking utensils, salad bowls,dishes and cutlery.
It has separate dining and living room areas. The dining room has patio doors opening out to the front balcony.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, night tables, a full dresser,mirror and clothes closet.
The apartment has an upper deck with a Tiki roof over a picnic table and gas BBQ. The front balcony has a small table and chairs and is a favorite place for guests to gather with a glass of wine to watch the sunset or the stars. It also overlooks the dock , boatslips and a waterside deck on which there are comfortable deck chairs and a hammock under the palms.(see photo) This is a great place to relax with a book.
There is a swim ladder at the end of one pier and steps into the water in one of the boat slips.
You may use the washer and dryer and a pressure washer and tools found in the breezeway.
View: Waterfront directly on Florida Bay, facing west, protected from the cool north winds. Spectacular sunsets - rivaling those at Key West . The elusive 'green flash' has been seen on several occasions. You may be lucky! (Our son-in-law sailed around the world and never saw one until he came to CKL.)
Activities on site and nearby:
Fishing from boats, bridges or from the dock. Charter fishing from Conch Key or Marathon, snorkeling or scuba diving from Looye Key, bicycling over the bridges or on the bicycle paths. Marine life and bird viewing. Jetski rentals nearby. Close to the Dolphin Research Centre (swim with the dolphins), Theater of the Sea (Islamorada). Four nearby beaches (although the Keys are not renowned for this) - Anne's,Curry Hammock Park, Coco Plum and Sombrero. Drive over the famous Seven Mile Bridge to beautiful Bahia Honda State Park. And then, of course, spend a day at Key West.
Everything about this rental is amazing! The views, the location, the hospitality of everyone, simply everything. We were welcomed and immediately comfortable upon arrival. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation is at your fingertips! Joannie & Denise are amazing! We hope to spend many more vacations in this little slice of paradise! Thank you for the memories!
Conch Key Landing is a peaceful, beautiful paradise. I have spent 26 years visiting Florida and never knew it could be so charming. This is a relaxing, unwinding, easy going place. However, shopping and good restaurants are just down the road.
The apartment was clean, very comfortable, and had everything one might need to cook or barbecue. Joaney and Denise were fabulous hosts, helpful, fun and made us feel welcome.
This is a romantic spot, with impressive views and breathtaking sunsets.
We will be back!
Our family had a wonderful time. Owners were great! Very clean place and beautiful view. We will definitely be back for a visit!
Two of my friends and I stayed a week at the downstairs apartment and we just ABSOLUTELY loved it! The location is fabulous, the area is quiet and the sunsets are beautiful! This key is the "Old Florida" quaint feeling! It is centrally located so getting to the upper or lower keys is a snap! The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need to cook and entertain and to be able to see the beautiful views from inside the apartment is a wonderful amenity. Of course, the views once outside are even more spectacular. To be able to fish off your own dock in the Gulf just a few feet outside the apartment was one of many highlights! We found the managers and owners to be very accommodating! I definitely will be back soon and when stone crab season re-opens!
After staying in the keys at another location for 16 years we finally found our forever vacation home. Joanie and Denise are wonderful. If they called you a pig then you probably were. I leave the place in the condition I found it. The cleaning fee is everywhere you stay. It includes scubbing the fridge, showers and floors that most people would not even consider. They are wonderful and attentive iin making sure that your stay is excellent. Our boat tore up while we were there and Joanie had a mechanic at my door in 45 minutes. Could not ask for a better place to stay. If you want daily maid service stay at the Holiday Inn.
This is my fifth year returning to this wonderful apartment. It is the greatest place to kick back and relax. You can do as much or as little as you choose, swimming, fishing or bring you own kayak or boat. It is all there. The apartment is very clean with a cute Keys theme. Just walking in the door makes you feel happy. I also like the fact that it is so well stocked with everything that you need. All you need to bring is your personal items. It is a tradition for everyone to sit on the pier at night and watch the beautiful sunset.
My dogs and I am looking forward to many return trips.
