This home is located in the fishing capital of the world, minutes from Snake Creek Channel and from ocean and bay access. It's 1.5 mile north of the world famous Holiday Isle Tiki Bar/sandbar and less than 2 hours away from Key West.
A beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom vacation oasis awaits you in Venetian Shores, Islamorada's premier waterfront community. This home was built in 1995 and has been kept pristine and maintained immaculately as you can see in the pictures below. A brand new luxury heated pool was added in December 2012 and is surrounded by a spectacular cooled coral paver deck with superior non skid properties! The home sits on a huge 70 x 100 foot lot (almost a 1/4 acre) on a deep water canal just off Snake Creek which takes you to the Atlantic and beautiful Florida Bay in just minutes. While on the dock, make sure you say hello to our neighborhood manatee, who loves to steal the morning show amongst her tarpon and dolphin friends. We always like to applaud him with a drink of fresh water, a belly rub, and a picture! A professionally designed lush tropical keys landscape creates an ambiance that you will enjoy and never leave as it gives you the feeling of having your own private resort all to yourself. Our comfortable loungers, heated pool and wooden bar are there to create the ultimate relaxing environment for you and your family to enjoy while creating memories to last a lifetime.
The home is truly the ultimate in Tropical living, it will feel like the home away from home. The kitchen is equipped with all the accessories and utensils you need to provide your family with delicious meals, specially after a good fishing day. A 2014 smart TV with Netflix and a Sonos stereo system will suit even the most discriminating visitors. Upstairs, the living room and kitchen opens up to the tropical outdoor environment through two sets of hurricane impact sliding glass doors, take a step outside onto our wrap around patio and enjoy the breezy key winds and the beautiful sun setting over the bay. When you get tired come inside and take a snooze on the couch, while the kids enjoy some Netflix on the smart TV. Another set of expansive sliding glass doors open up to the veranda. The upstairs master boasts a King size bed with sliding doors to the second floor balcony where you can sit and soak in what is going on downstairs or wave at the boats going by. The second bedroom has a queen bed, coupled with a smart TV. The last bedroom has a full bed, perfect for the kids or a lovely couple!
Two very nice bunk beds provide sleeping comfort for up to 4 guests in the lower level apartment, with its own bathroom and kitchen, yes, that's 2 kitchens for your convenience!!
I include paper towels, soap, shampoo, dish washing liquid, laundry detergent, coffee, sugar, spices, ice maker, air mattresses and much more that other rentals do not. My goal is not to be the least expensive but to be the best value in Islamorada for a vacation rental. I look forward to hosting you very soon.
HI SPEED WIFI and NetFlix is INCLUDED!
Wonderful 2016 Lobster Miniseason! Thank you Arlet for a great stay at your home and to Daisy for being so attentive. Looking forward to next year⚓️⛵️⚓️!
We had a magnificent time and the home was very beautiful. We spent most our time when at house by covered patio and waterside pool or giving the Manatee a drink.
Our son and fiancee chose to marry at a nearby resort and home was great place to entertain out of state guests. We enjoyed scuba, near shore and off shore fishing too.
Having room for our boat at dock was a huge plus. Only public boat landing is from park about 2 miles away.
Another thing we liked but did not fully understand when we arrived was the separate apartment downstairs by pool. It's the one with bunks....has its own kitchen and bath, perfect for older kids or grandparents that can't do stairs.
The house was truly perfect, and a perfect location, for our vacation stay. Two long time friends/family's shared the stay at the house. We had a 20ft and a 17 ft boat. Both fit perfectly at the dock. We were able to fit two boat trailers and 3 cars in the parking area, again no issues with space. Three bedrooms upstairs and two bunk beds (4 beds) downstairs all worked out perfectly as we had more than enough room to spread out. The house was clean, beds were fine, and it was awesome having two full size refrigerators to spread out the groceries.
The location boating wise is perfect with easy access to Snake Creek, then 15 min to either the sandbar or to Hens & Chickens reef. About an 8 mile run to Alligator reef light. Best snorkeling we located close by was under the Alligator reef light house and at Hen's and Chickens. On the same canal as the house, at the end across from the coast guard station was a bait store & gas station, so that worked perfectly when headed out to go fishing. Note they have a bait freezer downstairs which was perfect for stocking up on ice for boating needs. Don't forget to check out the botanical garden state park at Lignumvitae Key and the the other state park at Indian Key, both only accessible by boat. During our stay we saw two manatees in the canal and large Tarpon also feed on mullet in the canal daily.
As far as location land wise, the ramp we used was at founder's park, 15 min away $15 to launch, $15 to take out. Easy access to the grocery store(s) with Winn Dixie about 20 min way just past Tavernier creek and Publix a bit further in Key Largo. Great restaurants are close by, Marker 88, M.E.A.T, Wahoo's, all were very good. We loved the pool after being out on the water all day. The gathering spot for everyone was under the overhang by the bar next to the pool. The fans there were great when the breeze would slack.
The owner was very very very nice, and Daisy who checked us in/out was also extremely nice and accommodating as to our arrival and departure times..
We had absolutely no issues over the course of the stay. Really was a great time and the house truly was perfect for a "family" stay. We hope to come back and stay again next year..
This home is spacious and felt like a home away from home with all its amenities. It has something for everyone. Relaxed by the pool under the palm trees while others fished by the dock. Close to restaurants, bars and grocery stores. Looking forward to returning soon.
My family and I had an amazing time. The house is beautiful and very well kept it had all the amenities you'll need. The beds were very comfortable, complete kitchen, beautiful pool, and right on the canal.
The house was just minutes away from many restaurants, grocery stores, and parks. Owner is very easy to deal with. We can't wait to come back and rent your place again.
I couldn't have picked a better location to make our trip worth while! Fell in love with the view, serenity and overall feel of the home. We had no issues staying in and relaxing by the pool or hanging out close by. The rental is perfect for a getaway with every accommodation you could possibly need. Within 10 minutes there was a grocery store and a few restaurant spots. It felt like a home away from home. Communication with the owners was easy and responded quickly to any questions prior to our stay. We are looking forward to plan our next trip and will definitely be using this location again.
Located in the sea fishing and diving capital of the world. 1 mile North of the famous Holiday Isle Tiki Bar and 80 miles north of Key West.
