Upper Florida Keys Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to Ocean Reef. Our beautiful Pumpkin Cay Condominium has 4 full bedrooms and three full baths. This unit is directly on Pumpkin Creek with direct views from the screened porch overlooking Pumpkin Cay and the Atlantic Ocean. The screened-in porch also looks over our boat slip that is less than 75 feet from our unit and can slip a boat up to 29 feet. Our unit is on the second floor in a two story building that has only four units in the building. The condo has main views to the east over the water providing you spectacular sunrises over the ocean and mangrove canopy.

Across the residential street from the unit is the neighborhood pool that is for Pumpkin Cay guests. If you are looking for more activity, you are just a 7 minute golf cart ride away from the main pool and beach area of Ocean Reef or the Maritime Village.

Our sleeping arrangements provide flexibility for various needs. The Master Bedroom has a king size bed. The second bedroom has two double beds. The third bedroom has a queen size bed. The fourth bedroom has two single beds. Our unit has one reserved parking spot, guest parking as well as spaces for golf carts, in addition to the dock.

About David Black

Born and raised in South Florida, the Reef is like my second home. I own the condo with my sisters-none of us use it as frequently as we should.

David Black purchased this condo in 1989

Why David Black chose Upper Florida Keys

Ocean Reef- a very special place... My family has been going down to the Reef for over 40 years. It is a wonderful place with some of the best fishing just off your dock. Great activities for the kids (especially the golf carts), 3 great 18-hole golf courses, tennis a real year round community and yet less than an hour from most parts of Miami! Ocean Reef is a Private Club- Strongly recommend making reservations ahead of time during peak periods.

What makes this condo unique

One of the nice things about our unit is that everything is on one floor...great for socializing with everyone who is there. Another nice benefit is having your boat right there...no need to get in the car and drive to the marina...or pack the car up with diving and fishing gear just to get to the boat.

Lovely, spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from a week at Ocean Reef - David's condo was nicely furnished and fully equipped with everything a family of 9 (6 adults and 3 children) needs. We took advantage of the golf course and driving range, the beautiful gym, and had the pool across from the condo to ourselves for the entire week (we went to Buccaneer Island once) . David responded quickly to any question or issue we had and was a pleasure to deal with - we highly recommend this place for a group that wants to stay together, but not right on top of each other. A few suggestions: if you plan to cook (which we did), bring your groceries (wine and liquor too) or have them delivered via Amazon Pantry - we didn't and had to ride to Florida City to shop (35 mins away) - the "market" (Wynn's) on the premises is very expensive, OK for a few items, but not for a week's worth of food! Rent your golf carts from Pete/Larry (get the number from David) - again much less expensive than on the premises ($200 wk vs. $75 daily). Visit John Pennecamp State Park in Key Largo for snorkeling - they have a reasonable tour that is great! Places outside Ocean Reef to eat: Sharkeys (happy hour), Hobo Cafe, Big Chill (beautiful view), and Senor Frijoles. PS/note the dress code on the Ocean Reef website, as they are strict about that.

Lovely condo! Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a family wedding at the Ocean Reef Club and found this condo on VRBO as we needed a place for both my family and my sisters family. We could not have been more pleased with our choice! The condo was far enough away, yet close enough for us to get to everything quickly. So we could see everyone when we wanted, yet get away when we didn't. The pool was fabulous and i spent an entire afternoon there and saw no one else!

The only thing that was a little disconcerting was that they have changed the decor from the photos and at first i thought i was in the wrong place! Great views, spacious condo, well equipped kitchen and very convenient. David was very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend!

Spacious, well-appointed condo | Great amenities | Exceptional Owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at David's property for a girls' weekend in October. There were 8 of us, and the condo was more than big enough for our group. Everyone had a bed (2 each shared a queen and king), the three full bathrooms made it easy for everyone to get ready and there was plenty of space in the common area.

The kitchen is very well-stocked in terms of dishes, pots and pans. In terms of technology, the living area and some of the bedrooms had TV and DVD players and the wi-fi was reliable. The screened-in porch overlooks the canal/docking area and was a nice place to catch sunrise.

I had no idea that the property was so resort-like - we only left once for a dinner out. Things we did included: ordering dinner to the condo (a really nice way to settle in the first night), scheduled a private yoga class, hung out at the pool (one becomes adults only after 2pm, which was nice for relaxing, while there were still other pools in the same area that were family-friendly), bike riding. The weekend brunch was AMAZING. Really well done and not unreasonable for the quality. (Be aware there is a dress code in the dining areas and they are serious about it. Collared shirts, no pool wear.)

David (the owner) was incredibly helpful and responsive during our stay. When we arrived, we realized we needed him to send in an authorization to the desk for us and texted him. He had it taken care of in less than 10 minutes on a Friday night - very much appreciated. Our stay coincided with a hurricane with an uncertain path - David worked with us to make sure we had a plan B if flights ended up canceled. In the biggest snafu of the trip, I left my camera bag (full of professional camera gear) sitting on the bed in the condo - which I only realized when unpacking at the Miami airport. David went above and beyond to secure my equipment and ensure that it made it back to me quickly and safely.

I would absolutely recommend this property and owner to anyone looking for a great getaway in the keys!

Our family absolutely loved and enjoyed this rental

  • 5 of 5

Bottom line - we'll be back next year, and our friends and co-workers asked where we stayed when they saw the photos and then asked for David's contact info to rent it themselves. It starts with David - low-key, easy to work with, very helpful, very thoughtful. Beautiful, well-maintained, spacious, clean house -- and well-apportioned with appliances and kitchen/bath/laundry gear. Access to ocean superb; weather was great so we were out each day fishing and diving. Left all our gear on the boat - totally safe. Compound facilities outstanding and convenient. Multiple pools on the compound, including PC's pool 50 yards from the unit. Easy access to greater Key Largo shops, restaurants, etc about 10 miles south by car (or boat). We have rented a house/dock four times in the Keys -- all were good experiences, but this was wonderful.

Must do

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this condo and this resort. Kids enjoyed the freedom of being allowed to meet new friends. It is safe and secure with lots to do. Wish we had more time because it took us at least 3-4 days to get the hang of everything. David is so easy to work with and always answered our texT's quickly. Kitchen is well furnished and floor plan made us feel that we had plenty of space. Loved every minute!

A little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Second time around and looking forward to our next stay in May, and again in November. It has turned into a second home for my husband and two sisters. The condo is like slipping into a pair old slippers. Comfy and warm😊
