About the property

3 BR 2 BA -- sleeps 6 maximum

BOAT LOVERS! Five minutes to open ocean. Keep your boat in the canal right at your back door. 214-226-0826. 901-458-2584.

KAYAK LOVERS! Slip the two sea going kayaks into the water and explore the mangrove trails and Salt Ponds right across the canal.

ANGLERS! Fish directly off the stone deck out back and catch anything from snapper to grouper. Throw them on the grill and have dinner by the water.

Serenity and privacy can be yours as you relax on the patio by the large free form pool, right across from a protected bird sanctuary with gorgeous unencumbered views of the sunrise and sunset over the mangroves. Ten minutes away from the zany fun of Duval Street when you are ready to party. Bikes available to explore the hidden corners of the island.

A beautifully landscaped, family-owned home on Key West's only canal, Dragonfly gives you the feeling of visiting an old friend instead of a sterile rental unit. This l950's retro-chic house is furnished with an eclectic combination of custom furniture, family antiques and wicker in an exclusive area of Key West not usually on the rental market. This property includes all the amenities of your own home. You will enjoy two newly remodeled baths, a fully functional kitchen, linens, cable, high speed internet, washer/dryer, air conditioning and outdoor grill.

If you are looking for that anonymous condo feel this is not the place to go, but if you want a home away from home that is charming and relaxing Dragonfly is for you.

Great water access for kayaking and boating!

  • 4 of 5

This house was exactly what we were hoping for. We brought our boat and enjoyed fishing and diving for lobster many days. The pool is refreshing after a hot day of boating or kayaking. Quiet neighborhood but close enough to bike to Old Town. Needs more outdoor furniture for outside dining however. Great time overall!

If your a boater and love key west then you will love this home.

  • 5 of 5

The house is great but what makes this place special is the outside pool area and the boating access. Your just a short canal trip to anywhere in the keys your boat can take you . The house gives you easy access to the great places in key west but allows you to escape the Duvall street crowds once you have enjoyed that yourself .

my 2 cents

  • 3 of 5

The home has much character kind of like my house so I felt at home. Easy to get out to Atlantic and Gulf unfortunetly the weather was not cooperating for us. I especially like the pool and all the gardens. If I was staying there again I most certainly want a freezer for ice. and most of all calm seas! I Most certainly recommend this home to my friends. Not into partying toooooo much so I stayed away from Duval and enjoyed the rest of the city. Love the food at El siboney Cuban food! the wines bring your own!

Owner's Response: While we cannot control the seas or the weather (unfortunately), we did replace the frig and ice maker. Hope that helps! Thanks.

This is a state of mind, not a vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5

This is an authentic 60's era architecture house on the waterway and salt marsh. Very well-maintained and charming. The back patio is covered and a wonderful place to spend the day reading, and watching the boats, kayaks, paddle boarders, manatees and tarpon roll by. We sat out there during a fierce squall and stayed dry. The pool is wonderful, there are always areas in shade and sun to move around in. Good kayaks and Bikes at your disposal. Wifi, big screen TV, excellent washer/dryer, great vintage full kitchen, neat sunken living room, comfortable beds with good mattresses, kickass air conditioning, very private, great jogging neighborhood,... A week here and your mind will be in a better place!

Everyday I stayed just got better and better

  • 5 of 5

A serene and wonderful spot. The outside view over the mangrove is amazing. Kayaking in the back each morning was fantastic - with the occasional manatees swimming by. The pool is made for relaxing and watching sunsets. The decor is primarily 50s and it's a normal home with everything you need. If that's not your thing or you want something fancy however, this may not be the place for you. We loved it.

Perfect place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that at first I was a little concerned about the location for this property as it looks on the map to be a long way away from Duval and some of the other hotspots of Key West, but I found after arriving that this really enhanced my stay. Being away from all of the night-time craziness allowed me and my family to have a much more enjoyable and relaxing trip.

A few gems from the trip that we haven't been able to get at other places in Key West:

1) Taking out the sea kayaks to explore the mangrove swamp behind the house;

2) Set up the ping pong table and doing my best Forrest Gump impersonation;

3) Petting the manatees that came right up to the seawall behind the house (I'm sure someone will scold me for doing this, but c'est la vie);

4) Cooking up some fresh lobsters and grouper on the grill;

5) Jumping in the canal behind the house after a day at Smather's Beach.

This is a great property that really makes you feel at home. I can't wait to go back again!
