Overview

About the property

1 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 2.

Eagle's Nest, a unique rental for single vacationers or a pair of traveling companions. Upper level, ocean view master suite is a private designer ‘studio’ apartment (king bed/ full bath/kitchenette w/microwave/coffee/minifrig) with huge wrap-around private observation deck. Glass block & flanking sliding glass doors flood the apartment with natural light. Private entrance via a majestic spiral staircase. On a quiet dead end road bordered by mangrove and hardwood hammocks. Year-round ocean breezes make the deck a great spot to stretch out on the chaise lounge or hammock and snooze, sun or just read a good book..so spacious, I did my morning jog on it! At night, star gazing is amazing with no city lights and only the sounds of wildlife in the neighboring wetlands. Throughout the year, our ocean canal features giant tarpon, manatees and even dolphin. Just below Key Largo and above Islamorda, we offer easy access to both tropical isles yet maintain a private, small town atmosphere overlooking the turquoise Atlantic waters.

Notes:
We have direct ocean access allowing for dockside pickup or daytime tie-up (NO power cats due to canal width). No overnight layovers. A bonefish flat lies less than 100 yd from our dock (amenable to canoe [complimentary w/stay], kayak or poling a shallow draft flats boat) with miles of mangrove shoreline in either direction and only inches of water. A mile from the dock lies a pristine mangrove island (a designated bird sanctuary) ringed by a large flat harboring bonefish, permit and 100+ lb tarpon. If you rent a boat from our local marina, tropical sea flora and coral patch reefs extend out for five miles in depths of only 5-25 ft of crystal clear water for ideal snorkeling. If ocean side is not for you, there is ready access to calm and quiet Florida Bay backwaters through nearby scenic Tavernier Creek. Try the most economical yet luxurious non-breakfast bed in the Florida Keys.

This place is fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I went there for a nice relaxing long weekend. Stan was a perfect host and welcomed us immediately. Plenty of privacy on the 3rd floor all by yourself. Plenty of places to eat nearby. We brought our bikes and used those mostly so we suggest that for sure. Thanks again to Stan and we will see you again soon sir. 5 stars!!!!

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for ten days with my pregnant wife. We had the most relaxing holiday ever. The accommodation was fantastic, breathtaking view with sunrises to die for. Location was perfect, a quiet location but within easy access to all the Keys have to offer. The balcony spans 270 degrees around your private 'nest' with chairs, recliners, tables and a hammock which we loved. We hung out and relaxed here most days, fishing in the canal, watching the pelicans diving. After days out visiting the parks and beaches this was a great place to return to. Very clean and well kept. Great little kitchenette, there's no hob but with so many great places to eat nearby, the microwave, fridge and coffee maker were great for us. Our hosts Stan and Clara were all we could have wished for, we had such a great time chatting, fishing and checking out the stars (great star watching skies) and so helpful. We had a rental car and visited a load of places, most note able are penkamp state park, bahia Honda, robbies, dolphin sea life place. For eating out head to snappers, marker 88, chads deli, Cuban cafe. There's a Winn Dixie with takeaway stores and banks nearby, just a 3 min drive/ ten min walk. We couldn't recommend the Eagles Nest enough. We would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Stan & Clara.

The View

  • 4 of 5

Eagles Nest was all it was advertised to be. The scenery from the decks was spectacular. We were so lucky to also have a full moon! We had a wonderful stay. We visited the Everglades, Bahia Hondo, & John Pennecamp State parks. All were delightful. The food was very good, especially Tasters Grille in Tavernier. Thanks Stan & Clara.
