Andy Cancela purchased this house in 2008
We think Plantation Key is the jewel of the Florida Keys. Islamorada is the coined the 'fishing capital of the world'. Andy has completely remodeled the property inside and out planting over 600 trees and shrubs to create a lush private paradise.
It offers an abundance of open space and privacy. There are breath-taking sunrises and an ever-changing lure of the ocean view. This unique property is somewhat of a compound. We have the main house which is comprised of a 1BR 1BA master suite and a 2BR 2BA downstairs apartment. Privately located adjacent to the main house is a unique Red Cross cottage built in the 1930's.
After spending seven days in paradise, my husband and I left the “Sanctuary in Paradise” recharged. Each morning we took in the beautiful sunrise from the deck in the master upstairs. We rented a boat and could have it docked at the house for immediate access to the ocean, and in the afternoon, we laid under the sun relaxing on the hammocks. Our evenings were spent fishing on the dock, catching nonstop.
We decided on this house so we could host an intimate wedding ceremony and reception. Our guests were stunned when they pulled into Schooner Bay Road and were welcomed by the breathtaking ocean view. The property is so spacious and had room for us to have a ceremony by the sea and followed by a reception.
The house was stocked with everything you would need from beach towels, to air mattresses and kitchen cookware. There was little for us to think about.
The property owner, Andy Cancela, was beyond gracious and accommodating each time I had a question. This was the best week I could have imaged. You will not be disappointed!
We just came back from a wonderful week in Plantation Key. We went with our daughter, my elderly parents, sister and brother. The house is set up perfectly for multiple families to have there own space but still enjoy the week together. Every morning we woke up early to see an amazing sunset and my husband, who is an avid fishermen, spent a great deal of time fishing off the end of the dock. He caught a multitude of fish and we enjoyed kayaking, swimming and sunning. All in all a beautiful week in a beautiful place. We highly recommend this house!
We have rented before in the Florida Keys but never on the Ocean Side. I definitely recommend it! We really enjoyed the sea life and the view. Property is expansive with several buildings and the cottage is very neat. Property is also very private. It felt like a private oasis. Photos are exactly as they are in person. All minor issues were taken care of promptly by the owner and he was easy to get ahold of and Andy worked with us to accomodate our unique travel situation. Several large boats came by and there was so much sea life, dolphins, sharks, sting rays and much more greeted us out on the dock. We fished a bunch off the dock and enjoyed our evenings in the upper level of the house. There were 13 of us ranging from age 3 to 73 and there was plenty of room for all. I definitely recommend a charter fishing outing with 5 star fishing. We caught over 100 fish in a little over 3 hours. Founders Park is a must for anyone with children. Admission is free with your contract from Andy and it is only 3 miles away. Cant wait to get back to the Keys!
We rented this home for our first visit to the Keys. Our group was 6 adults and the house fit our needs very well. It was exceptionally clean and the property is gorgeous. House has everything you might need. We rented a boat for the week and made good use of the dock. Saw lots of wildlife on the property and enjoyed the porches and the hot tub. The home is close to shopping and restaurants. It was a great trip!
This was our 3rd. stay in the keys, first time ocean side. It is in a perfect location, close to shopping and great restaurants. We rented a boat from A1A Watersports and Boat Rentals, and fished the whole time, close to two cuts through to the bay, and several reefs. We would rent this home again.
Our family was swept away by the beautiful ocean front views and many amenities of this island retreat. It is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway or a family reunion and is situated perfectly as a haven for many popular day trips. It is just an hour from the Everglades national park, minutes from swimming with the dolphins, beautiful family, friendly beaches and snorkel spots, and is a scenic drive to key west. So if you are a sports enthusiast, love lying on the beach or enjoy exploring the "tastes" the keys have to offer, this sprawling home is perfect for you. Love cannot begin to express our emotions when telling others of this amazing spot!
