Lush, tropical home!

Located in upscale South Point, overlooking Sugarloaf Sound and just 12 miles from Key West, this beautiful home offers you a totally tropical experience. From the Tommy Bahama inspired interior furnishings to the spectacular foliage that graces every view, this home is a visual delight. The open floor plan and soaring ceilings in every room give a wonderful feeling of spaciousness and luxury. The 12 ft. pocket sliding glass doors in the great room slide behind the walls to open nearly the whole wall to the lanai, creating a spacious, outdoor feeling throughout. The lanai is equipped with electric rolling shutters, which allows complete use of it even in inclement weather. It seats up to 10 for dining, and the kitchen can accommodate 9.

Comfort was the overriding theme when we furnished this house. With that in mind, we furnished it with 2 king sized beds. The 3rd. bedroom has a bunk bed with a full sized lower bunk as well as a daybed. Each bedroom is decorated in delightful island style. For the queen size sofa pull out in the great room, we have provided a foam mattress topper, which makes the bed as comfortable as most.

For those who are handicapped, we have done some alterations to make their stay comfortable. In addition to the elevator, the master bedroom and bath doorways have been widened to 36' so that any wheelchair can get through. There are no obstructions in the master bath that would make it difficult to access the facilities.

Outside, the 60 ft. grotto-style pool has a large sailfish fountain. We've provided a Mayan hammock to give you ultimate comfort for your afternoon nap in the filtered shade under the palm trees. Besides the large gas Bar-B-Q, there is a stainless fish cutting station and 12,000 lb. boat lift which can be customized to your boat's specifications. There are 2 Malibu Two person kayaks and a Tarpon 100 single kayak.

There is much to do within walking distance. Just 1/4 mile away is Sugarloaf Marina, which offers kayak rentals, ultralight flights, bait & tackle, and fishing charters. If you don't want to go down to Key West for fine dining, there are 3 fabulous restaurants very close by.

You will love your very tropical vacation at Bayside Beauty. Please call or email for pricing and availability.

Idyllic Paradise

  • 5 of 5

To call this a "Bayside Beauty" is quite an understatement! This vacation rental exceeded all of our expectations and is without question a place our family will visit again. This house had all of the amenities one could want and everything was very clean, convenient and elegantly arranged. The property was very private and well shaded and very close to the sound with an amazing view. The swimming pool was exceptionally well maintained and irresistibly comfortable. The overall location was perfect in its proximity to great fishing and many fabulous scenic destinations such as Key West & Bahia Honda all while preserving a comfortable seclusion from which relaxation was inescapable.

Very gracious, beautifully landscaped and designed property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very wonderful stay. The pool was beautifully designed, and perfect for lap swimming. The variety of palms and other flowering plants around the home was amazing.

The interior of the home was perfect for two couples and children. The nicest part of the home was the long screened porch where we had all our meals and evening "Happy Hour." Also, the concrete high walls around the property gave us total privacy. A number of days we felt no need to go anywhere, with beautiful views, great pool, dock for fishing.

Strongly recommend this place . A great value.

We arrived very late at night and so we didn't look around the property before turning in. When daylight broke, we awoke to paradise. The pictures of this property are not misleading, they portray the beauty that surrounded us every day of our vacation. The property is laid out very well; we were able to enjoy the pool and dock in privacy. While our devices had no trouble getting the wi-fi signal and there is a huge TV, we didn't need either because we couldn't get enough of our views.

We've been recommending this property to anyone who will listen to us and we're planning on going back with our parents. There is plenty of room to have large/extended families stay there.

The washer, dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwaves were all updated appliances that worked well. We can't wait to go back.

This was such a wonderful, peaceful place to stay. The cove provided calm waters to kayak, we just launched off of the dock. The pool was heated so that we were able to enjoy it during the winter month and the size was big enough to be able to do laps. The Florida room was a great place to watch the sunrise while having coffee and reading. The house was spectacular and had everything that we needed and definitely a great location as it is always a short drive to all our destinations.

With no hesitation, I recommend this house as an amazing place to vacation.

The vacation of a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a month and it was to short. The house has a great location wich makes her very cool and protected. The pool has a great size that lets you swim not soak ! Its very well equiped and its was very clean and well maintained. It has enough sitting places either upstares or down by the pool to entertain up to 12 people wich we did with ease. I would certainlly recoment it and have plans to to return. The new owners were very nice and accomodating. As I said it was the vacation of a lifetime for our family.

Swim with the dolphins, go deep sea fishing, go back country fishing with an expert guide, take a back country kayak excursion, eat at fine restaurants just a couple of miles from the house, and go lobstering (in season). Or, you can go skydiving over the beautiful waters within a mile. Or, you can watch the beautiful parachutes while sitting on the bayside deck while soaking in the sun by the glimmering bay waters.

The reservation/security deposit of $1,500 is due immediately to hold the reservation; reservation cannot be guaranteed until signed rental agreement, deposit, and copy of photo ID are received.

No Smoking allowed in the house.

IMPORTANT The tile floors are extremely slippery when wet, warn everyone not to step onto any wet spots on the floor or to step onto the bare floor with wet feet from the shower or pool. Additionally, the Guest(s) agree to warn everyone not to walk or lay under any coconut trees which are bearing fruit. Falling coconuts are extremely dangerous.

Pets – Only small dogs will be allowed on the property if agreed upon by Lessor prior to arrival and the pet fee of $250 per dog is paid.

Kayaks – Kayaks must be taken out of the water after each use, they are never to be left tied to the dock. If left tied up, they smash into the dock and may crack. Additionally, this makes it much easier to steal. Guest(s) will be held responsible if any damage or loss occurs.

Boat Lift – Please specify at time of reservation if a boat lift is needed. If not discussed and approved by Lessor beforehand, you will be asked to remove the vessel immediately. A $250 fee will be charged so that the Lift company can meet you at the home, and adjust the bunks to match your specific boat, either V-Hull or Catamaran style boat. They will also demonstrate the operation of the lift. The lift must be unplugged whenever possible to avoid damage, and the lift mechanism raised well out of the water when the boat is not present to avoid accidents with passing boats.

At the end of the stay, place all debris and garbage in the trash cans, place all soiled dishes in the dishwasher and leave clean, place all used sheets and towels in the laundry room, and leave the grounds tidy. Return Keys.

Hope you enjoy your Stay.
