Why Jan Dempsey Simkins chose Duck Key
This property was our home away from home until we retired and now currently live in the Florida Keys.

House was nice, plenty equipped and clean. Porches were super nice and the bay was fantastic.
Owners were great, replied extremely promptly and even let us check in early when we arrived.
Throughout the Keys there is still damage from Hurricane Irma, but it by no means stopped us from doing any activities. There are still some restaurants that are not open, but plenty are back up and running. Great time and great property.
We enjoyed our stay
We enjoyed our stay. We like the location in the mid-Keys. Place was clean, kitchen had everything we needed, porch nice. There weren't many other people there when we were there, which was good, as the porches in the complex are right up next to each other. Place is as described. Tight quarters upstairs - no dresser in the second bedroom. Owner responsive and we had a good time there.
