Boat dockage may be rented from Hawk’s Cay Marina on Duck Key or Grassy Key Marina which is two miles south from Duck Key.

Duck Key is located in the middle of the Florida Keys at Mile Marker 61, between Islamorada and Marathon, approximately two hours from the Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airports. Key West is about one hour south from the Villa.

No need to drive anywhere, just walk across Duck Key Drive and you are at the beautiful Hawks Cay Marina.

We do not participate in the Hawks Cay Resort Rental Management Program, which allows us to offer our villa at reduced rental prices. Consequently, the resort may impose restrictions to their facilities, including the pools. Bar and poolside food and drink service is restricted for non-resort guests. If your vacation plans are to primarily spend time at the resort pool/lagoon, receive poolside and bar service, or use the tennis courts, we recommend reserving your stay with the resort.

The Dolphin Connection, and all of the exciting Marina services are available to our guests and must be paid for at the time of service. No charges may be made to the Villa.

About Jan Dempsey Simkins

Natives of the west and mid-west regions, but love Florida and the Florida Keys enough to retire here. Both love scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, and bicycling.

Jan Dempsey Simkins purchased this villa in 2013

Why Jan Dempsey Simkins chose Central Florida Keys

This property was our home away from home until we retired and now currently live in the Florida Keys. We traveled frequently to this location to vacation and enjoy all that the Florida Keys had to offer. We have worked hard to make this Villa our home, and strive to make this Villa a home for each of our guests while enjoying their vacations.

What makes this villa unique

This Villa is steps from the beautiful Tom's Harbor. Everything you could wish to do is right out your back door. Swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, and jet skiing, just to name a few. The sunsets are amazing every night and can be enjoyed from our back patio.

The town of Marathon is ten minutes away with charter facilities of every sort as well. The options are endless for this this middle keys villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I very much enjoyed our two night stay in your rental at the end of March.



My only suggestion would be to make the living room couch into a sleeper sofa. My tween/teen did NOT want to share the queen bed in one of the bedrooms, so my son slept on the couch. A sleeper sofa would have made it more comfy for him.

We loved it

  • 5 of 5

The villa was great, clean and very comfortable - even for a family of six like ours. We enjoyed the sunset from the back porch and loved the hidden pool just a few yards away. Having dinner at Anglers & Ale with a lovely view over the marina was nice, too. We can definitely recommend this place!

Chicken Soup For The Soul

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location. The open back porch faces West and overlooks Tom/s Harbor. Beautiful Sunsets. Unit is clean-updated and offers all the amenities needed. Plenty of towels for beach and baths. Located right across the street from the marina which now has both in/outside tables with Fire pits and music in the evenings. The main resort has elegant dining and a full bar available, as well as a gigantic Fire Pit. Relaxing after a day of sun and fun. You can swim with dolphins and rent some Jet Skies too (extra cost). We have been coming to Duck Key for over 10 years and HIGHLY recommend it, and this unit. Equally good for families or, as a romantic weekend getaway. Had a small maintenance issue while there, owners came personally to address the problem. The owners are "hands on" great people. Rent this unit, you won't be disappointed.

Owners are terrific

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay for October 8th, 2016 and unfortunately Hurricane Mathew hit south Florida at the same time. Since we could not go due to cancelled flights and the weather the owners offered us a full refund without our even having to ask. We received the refund within a couple of days. We plan to book this unit again next year. Many thanks to Jan the owner.
