Summerland Key House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Built new by us, the house has all the modern amenities that you would expect, and the open plan layout gives that spacious airy feeling that suits the tropics. Cable TV, broadband, a full kitchen (approved by my French wife) fully screened deck with loungers so comfortable you won't feel guilty about taking an afternoon nap. The concrete dock and 12,000lb electric boat lift will make it easy to use the water if you bring your boat. If you prefer more low-key aquatic adventures, there are two kayaks available to go manatee watching.

The house overlooks a small private airstrip, and it's novel to watch as people land their small planes outside their houses (no jets)

About Bill Allen

I'm a retired businessman from England who just can't get enough of the warm sunshine, warm water and blue skies in the Florida Keys.

Bill Allen purchased this house in 2009

Why Bill Allen chose Lower Florida Keys

I'm a pilot, and also a boat guy, - Summerland Key is the only place in the World where you can have your airplane under your house and your boat out back. See the views of Summerland from an aircraft on

What makes this house unique

Summerland is quiet and peaceful without being isolated. If you want to get immersed in the frenetic activity of a major destination resort, Key West is just 20 minutes down the road. But stay in the locality and there are great restaurants, cafes and bars. Not to forget fantastic scuba and fishing!

Sensational Time In Summerland

  • 5 of 5

This is a tremendous home and location. We spent the entire month and enjoyed every second of every minute of every day. Great canal leading to the open water. Boating and kayaking were great. The swim spa was a welcome relief on a hot afternoon. The house is tremendous, with a very nice kitchen. and large beds and baths. Lots of room for meals with friends and a great screened porch to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Close to Key West and great restaurants. We will definitely stay here again.

Tropical Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful inside and out! The lush tropical landscaping is well maintained and sets the stage for a wonderful island vacation. It is conveniently located just minutes from Key West. The inside is nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable. The swim spa was very relaxing after a long day out on the ocean. We enjoyed dining out at the many wonderful restaurants in the area. The fishing and diving were outstanding! The owner is friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Beautiful Modern House on Summerland Key

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful home located on a nice canal. The home is in a private airstrip neighborhood, and it was fun to see the occasional small plane land or take off from the air strip out front. The house is very nicely designed and decorated. Luxuriously spacious with an open concept, it is very comfortable and clean. There is also a large and nicely furnished deck which is screened in. It was fun using the kayaks in the canal and the swim spa is another nice option. We would stay there again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place is AMAZING!!! I can't say enough about the house itself. It is so open and airy! There are so many windows, so its very bright and clean and just amazing! I love that there was a fence so I didn't have to worry about my baby falling into the canal (which is crystal clear). The kids saw starfish right under the boat lift. The swim spa was really nice to get into after a long day out on the boat. It was a nice ride thru the channel to open water. It is in a very nice location and really close to a gas station for ice. I really can't say enough about this place, we had such a memorable time! Thank you Bill for sharing your home with us!

Summerland Key is a self contained Island with eateries, food, clothing, bank, fishing, jetski, boat rental and sales. It is a peaceful location, yet larger shopping is just 10 minutes East in Big Pine, and if you get tired of peaceful and laid back, Key West is just 20 minutes West with all the noise and activity you may need.
