Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to our Key West getaway. Wish you were here! We love the Florida Keys and Key West! We bought this property in 1971 on our second visit to the Keys. The sign said $100 down and $100 a month and we were hooked. A few years later we built on the property and started our annual vacations to the Keys. We've had wonderful times with family and friends over the years. Now we would like to share it with you.

The apartment you will be renting is upstairs overlooking a deep water canal that is great for fishing, swimming, lounging in or just looking at. You can also dock your boat right there. There's a swim out and ladder. Also, we have an outside shower - great for rinsing off after a swim or a long day on the boat.

For cooking and eating we have a full size kitchen with a table that seats 4. There are so many fabulous restaurants - we have Bobalu's (1 mile away) for wonderful home cooking, but you don't have to cook it. They will even prepare your own fish for you with all the trimmings. And Gieger Key Marina just down the road is right on the water and it is beautiful. Kind of a layed back bar type of place with great food and local entertainment some nights(also 1 mile away). Key West has so many great restaurants and it would take me all day to tell you about them. Our favorite is 7 Fish on the corner of Elisabeth and Olivia. So we don't cook much. downstairs we have a Weber gas grill and table and chairs for 4.

We love getting out on the water, fishing, snorkeling, kayacking, diving for lobster or taking an eco tour. It's all close by! Or you can stay on land and just enjoy lounging. We've got many beautiful palm trees and lush landscaping.

Our apartment is 6 miles from Key West, just far enough! You can go to town for lots of excitement and then come home for some peace and quiet. It's all good in the Keys! We highly recommend the Conch Tour Train for general and historic information about Key West and the Florida Keys. Shopping is OUTSTANDING! Bar hopping is CRAZY! People watching is EDUCATIONAL!

So come and enjoy - you won't regret it!

Why DANNY KARCHER chose Lower Florida Keys

Diann and I fell in love with Key West after a visit here in 1971. we built this vacation home so that we could visit as often as possible. Our family has spent many memorable vacations and continue to enjoy the keys lifestyle.

What makes this apartment unique

Being on a canal with quick access to the gulf side flats and lobstering 10 minutes to key west and being able to get out of town to relax has always been nice.

Wonderful and perfect, classic Keys charm!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a 12-night stay at this property. Just great in every way, clean and charming. Plenty of room and all the amenities you need for cooking and feeling right at home! The owner responded quickly and accurately to inquires, and judging by the guest book everyone else who's stayed there feels the same way. Great location, close to Key West - but not too close! Easy to find, with plenty of parking and a nice view of the small canal out back. Beds in the two bedrooms are firm but comfortable and having two bathrooms was very nice for my fishing buddy and I. The family is very fishing-oriented, which was nice to see also as that is why we come to the Keys each year. This place was far superior to others I've rented father from KW and for basically the same price. I hope to rent it again next year! The only thing to be aware of is that during the day the jets from nearby Boca Chica Naval Air Station do their practice runs during the day and they often make the house shake. But it's likely you will be out doing other things and they didn't bother us all that much. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place close to KW, without KW prices. Thanks Dan!!

Perfect and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our week's stay! It was clean, comfortable, and well-stocked. The outdoor shower was a hit for us!! The ice maker pumped out enough ice daily to keep our beverages chilled while boating. This was our first experience with renting from a website and certainly won't be our last! The owners, Dan and Diann, were very helpful in answering all of our questions prior to arriving. The neighbor was very hospitable and at the same time, respectful of our privacy. The proximity to Key West is great! We would highly recommend this place for your stay in the Lower Keys!

Relaxing & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Great Cozy, clean, everything we needed for a Great vacation! Next Door Neighbor was great. Key West was a hop & skip away. The canal access was the Best! Iguana's everywhere & Spacious upstairs porch as well as Downstairs area that held all our fishing & diving gear. Bobalu's had awesome home cooked food. We would highly recommend this rental.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

The residence is very clean, spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed sitting outside on the upstairs deck. The location was perfect. Far enough from Key West to be peaceful but close enough for an easy drive in each day. The washer and dryer were an added bonus.

Great FL Key Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a good house with everything you need to enjoy a vacation in the FL Keys. The proximity to Key West is great. House was well furnished inside and outside. Neighborhood is quiet, Gieger Key offers good kayaking and a great restaurant. We had a great time and would stay again.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to spend an extended stay in Key West. It is a short walk to public transit which travels along the keys. It is located on a canal that gives you immediate access to water and boating. Rooms were larger than expected and all amenities were clean. The deck was large and comfy. Overall A+
