Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday estate in Summerland Key - Rustling Palms

Estate, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)


This 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath and 3 private outdoor shower, home has everything that you could possibly need for your vacation. Have the whole family together with the comfort of 3 separate living spaces. Meet up oceanside and around the lovely central pool area or spread out among the many quiet spots. Take in the tranquil views of the shimmering ocean and the relaxing sounds of rustling palm trees throughout. For the visitor that seeks total relaxation, this home is the perfect prescription.


Enter the property through a lushly landscaped garden featuring a tropical mix of palm trees, orchids, buddha belly bamboo, bougainvillea and native gumbo limbo trees. There are 2 covered parking bays and plenty of additional parking space.


The tropical landscaping continues inside the expansive (60'x120', 2.5 story) screened pool area that serves as the home’s striking centerpiece, with multiple level decks connecting the main house and the cottages.

The heated fresh-water pool has 3 levels - swimming, plunge and spa. It features cut and natural coral, a sliding board, a swim-under waterfall and overhead fans. You’ll know you’re in the Keys as you swim among palm trees, banana trees, ferns, air plants and orchids.

Overhead, a “widow’s walk” looks out over the pool, house, garden and ocean. Two private outdoor showers are located in the pool area, one with an ocean view.


The 3 level main house opens to both the ocean and the pool, with decks on both sides. It is designed to catch the fresh sea breezes through planation shutters. The exposed cedar arches and high cathedral ceilings are those of the boat designer who built the original house.

The great room has a large screen TV with HDMI ports, surround sound, DVD, and VHS. There are gaming tables, and a collection of classic family games. The modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including a wine cooler, and an eat-at central island. Just off the great room is the powder room with a lovely cut-coral vanity. The retractable glass doors open to the poolside covered deck's social and dining spot, with comfortable seating, a double seat swing, and a stainless steel gas grill ready to cook today’s catch.

The master suite is down the hall from the great room. It has a king bed and private entrance to the oceanside deck. The master bath features tile work by a local Key West artist, an extra-large jacuzzi tub and private indoor/outdoor shower both with an ocean view. The on-suite 3rd floor bamboo studio room is a relaxing retreat, complete with a telescope for star gazing from the private deck overlooking the ocean.


There are 2 pool-side cottages fully attached to the main house via the pool enclosure. Each cottage accommodates 4 people. Each has a king bedroom and a bedroom with 2 twin beds, with TVs in each room. Each has a shared bath, common sitting area, private decks and french doors that open to screened pool area. There is a crib available and optional safety gates for the stairs and pool area. 


The oceanfront area is landscaped and covered with "cool decking” which makes bare feet an option on even the sunniest days. Enjoy the shuffleboard court, 2 ocean kayaks and snorkeling just 3 steps down into the ocean. The tiki hut is a perfect spot to take in the world-class ocean view.

For the boater, there is a private boat basin that accommodates 2, 24’ boats (no large boats). There is a fish cleaning station and bait freezer. Niles Channel runs past the house for easy ocean access.


You are just a short drive away from numerous restaurants, dive shops, marinas, banks, grocery stores, liquor stores and post office, while Key West is 20 minutes away with its unique history and airport. Miami airport is 3 hours driving time.


The home features ceiling fans and AC throughout. There is DSL broadband in main house and wifi internet access covering the entire property. Total of 7 TVs and a fax machine. Security includes remote control electronic gate with surveillance cameras with indoor monitors and chimes. Pool care, garden care, and light cleaning are provided weekly for a monthly rental. Extra cleaning can be arranged through the Property Manager.

average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

a memorable month in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Our family and extended family spent the month of Feburary at this house and it was very comfortable, our group consisted of 4 couples and 2 singles. The great thing about the house was how we were able to spread out and have private space, while at the same time having optional communal space for card playing, dining or just enjoying each others company. We also enjoyed the boat harbor, we brought our 24' center console boat and it was safely moored in the harbor awaiting our next fishing or diving trip. The pool area was lovely and shaded which was nice on hot sunny days. There was ample parking as well. We are already looking forward to spending next Feburary there.
