spend as much time as possible in the Keys; bought this 2nd Summerland Key home as we fell in love with the location - corner canal lot, open in front of home and ocean in sight; keep our own 40' boat at this house
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
we love Summerland Cove and especially love the deep clear water in our canals where we snorkel and swim - tropical fish, octopus, manatees, lobster - are all right there! The ocean is in sight; beautiful quiet neighborhood
deep sea fishing, snorkeling at Looe Key; scuba, kayak, visiting with family and friends, spending nights on the patio under the house; watching the boats go past our house as they go out to sea and return; when we are done with our outdoor activities and have the energy we venture to Key West for the wilder side of life - great food, people watching and more; love the movie theater in Marathon
Spent 8 weeks at this terrific home! The location is unbeatable - canal on one side and boat channel to the ocean on the other side with lovely views of the mangroves across the way. Lots of birds - some that came to hang out with us on a regular basis and the fishing was good although we threw most of them back. The neighborhood is lovely, upscale, and quiet. We found everything we needed in the house, the grounds are great for relaxing and watching the boats and kayakers go by, the beds and furnishings are comfortable and the kitchen is wonderful! Nearby are boat rentals, grocery stores, tackle shops, scuba diving, great restaurants, and the Key Deer reserve which we visited almost daily. Key West is a short drive away and there is more than enough to see and do there! We got to meet the homeowners Kathy and Roger who have another home nearby. They are helpful, friendly, and fun and we really enjoyed meeting them. Thanks for letting us use your house!
My husband, teenage son and I just returned from a week at the Lagoon House. We were very comfortable in the house, it is just as advertised and clean as can be. The location is a wonderful dead end street, no traffic, only the sights and sounds of the beautiful, tranquil Summerland Key. The yard is very comfortable-sit in the sun or sit in the shade below a palm tree-priceless. The view from the kitchen table and from the yard is awesome, loved watching the boats come and go throughout the day. Beautiful place to kayak, right from your yard. Distance to any local stores is minutes away, very convenient. Snorkeling at Looe Key-minutes away. Distance to Key West only about 20+ miles….so you get the best of both worlds….lively in Key West and back home to tranquility. Wonderful week away !! Thank you.
Location is excellent, View the Lagoon and Open Water, Corner Lot, Beautiful Palm Trees, Quiet Location, no Traffic, good Area for Kajaking
We lived in this beautiful house for 35 days, every day was great
Pelicanes, Orspreys, Doves and Seagulls are daily visitors
Even Fishing at the house was succesful
Just wanted to say we had a great time at your place. Couldn't ask for a better location.Everything was just as decribed.Really enjoyed sitting outside and fishing in the canal. The house is very nice inside and had a wonderful kitchen. Will definiely go again!
I had to write this review because my wife gets all teary eyed thinking about it. Once we got settled in with groceries and found everything we needed to get comfy, we could stop all movement and just absorb the view and boy what a view!
Instead of looking across the canal and seeing another house you can enjoy the natural setting with mangroves, birds, fish and gorgeous sunsets. People see the pictures we took of the sunsets and can't believe their eyes.
We made a couple of trips into Key West but other than a fabulous show (39 Steps) at the Water Front theater, I can not think of any other reason to leave the neighborhood; unless to take a boat out to Looe Key or the back waters of Gulf side. Every evening we would take our beverages down to the sea wall and feed the fish, watch the Osprey nest across the way and herons hunting their dinner. The tranquility would be hard found elsewhere.
Every morning and every evening the local boats would make their way to sea and return, often times with fresh catch for dinner. Access to the water was so easy that if you have a boat you want to go out onto the open water and watch the sun set behind Cudjoe Key. We enjoyed the surrounding views so much I almost forgot to say how comfortable the house was.
We sleep soundly every night and it was such a wonderful thing to wake up for coffee and watch the sun rise. With Murray's grocery store just around the corner we had everything we needed to enjoy some nice home cooked meals if we did not feel the need to go to some of the local restaurants. And there are nice restaurants near by (Wharf and a must) but you almost hate to leave the house in case you miss something right outside your door.
We definitely would stay here again with some good friends.
We didn't know what to expect when we arrived in Summerland Key. We knew we wanted to visit Key West, but were also seeking peace and quiet. If you want the thrills of Key West, but looking for some days of serenity then this home is the ticket. A quick drive from Key West this home offers all the amenities, gourmet kitchen, big screen TV with cable, walk in pantry, central air, and washer/dryer to name a few. Upon your arrival you don't know what to do first, take a walk along the upper deck, take a tour of the home to see where you will be hanging your hat for a while, or better yet, take a walk along the beautiful hand made rock wall that borders the perimeter of the home along the canal (which by the way is the perfect place to watch amazing sunsets while sipping on a cocktail). While you are out looking at the canal, make sure you don't miss the extensive assortment of fish swimming just below your feet. Oh did we mention there is an outdoor shower? Perfect way to cool off after a day of sunning and swimming in the canal. If you are one that likes to dine out while on vacation then this place is for you, the home is located within reach of some of the best dining that we have ever experienced, make sure you visit The Wharf Bar & Grill and Kaya Island Eats to name a few. Murray's Market is nearby and is the perfect place for stocking up the pantry. We could go on and on so many things we could say about this home. It is refreshing to arrive to a home that is a home away from home. The owners have taken every step to assure upon your arrival the home is ready to greet you. This was our first time to Summerland Key and we fell in love, it is on the books for next year. You will feel the same upon your departure.
