Nature Lover's Paradise, Waterfront Beachfront Wide Water Views into Everglades

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 28 nights


About the property

Private Home 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms (Sleeps 9) on XL Keys Waterfront Lot

Perfectly situated on Buccaneer Point faces directly west with views out over the wide expanse of the eastern reaches of Florida Bay, this comfortable 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is truly a nature lover's paradise, a great spot to enjoy the myriad wildlife with your family. Gorgeous views of the Everglades backcountry and often spectacular sunsets available from just about anywhere on the property, including great views from upstairs living area and master bedroom. Watch the herons stalk small fish as you enjoy brekfast on the back patio. Stroll the dock to look for fish, crabs and the like. The water out back is some of the most protected in the Keys that still offers such a wide nearly 180 view of the water. This is a great location to enjoy activites in the water: kayak along the shoreline north to see the osprey nest or south to see the manatee lagoon. For the more adventurous kayak to the nearby islands of the eastern Everglades, a good way to find dolphins. Paddleboard out back by the dock for first timers, or out into the Everglades for a great core workout. But a Keys vacation is for relaxation too: set your chair in the shallow water where the bay meets the beach and catch some rays. Or just hang in the shade and take in the nature up close from backyard waterfront lanai or the dock chickee.

The house on two levels features 4 bedrooms to accomodate your group sleeps from 1 to 8. Upstairs are the main living area and three bedrooms. The central great room combines living area, kitchen and dining in a space which promotes togetherness. The comfortable living room has two leather sofas and three large plush chairs, one a recliner. There is a 47' HDTV with cable in the living room. The recent renovated kitchen with granite counter tops has all essential appliances and ample cooking/baking/glassware/plateware materials yet appears clean and uncluttered. Enjoy wonderful water views as you prepare breakfast for your gang or cook the catch of the day from the local seafood market. The immediately adjacent dining area has a traditional table seats 6 can convert to seat 10. The master bedroom has water view from the king bed, ceiling fan, 37' HDTV and a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. 2nd upstairs bedroom has full bed, 3rd upstairs bedroom has two twins, the 2nd and 3rd BR share upstairs second bathroom. Downstairs is 4th bedroom with queen bed and one full bathroom. Downstairs additional gathering/living space has pottery barn twin beds and a pullout queen sleeper-sofa - a great space for teens or young adults who may opt for some escape space apart from parents, yet still remain on property.

Nature Lover's Paradise is conveniently located in a quiet residential neighborhood just south of 'downtown' Key Largo at Mile Marker 98.5. The house is 80 minutes from Miami International Airport and is centrally located to all that the spectacular Keys have to offer. Tavernier is just minutes to the south, Islamorada is a 15 minute drve. Marathon is about an hour away and it is a nice 2 hour drive to Key West (but with all the cool places to stop on the way, it's hard to do it in under 3 hours). For water fun right from the backyard there are 3 double kayaks, 2 single kayaks, 3 stand up paddleboards (SUP), a canoe, floats and numerous inflatables.

For your consideration, look at the map and consider where you choose to spend your prime vacation time. The Keys are surrounded by water and there are many 'waterfront' properties to choose from; some maybe on a canal, some perhaps with a water view if you stretch your head out a window. This property has a 100 ft wide direct bayside frontage with a shallow water natural beach to allow maximum enjoyment of the water on your vacation. The house faces 270 degrees straight to the west for some of the most amazing sunsets. Last, this home has many reviews. More high rating reviews means you can rest assured this property will meet your needs for a fabulous Florida Keys vacation. Inquire now about your vacation in paradise!

Amazing Key Largo Home!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed the home furnished for fun, relaxation, and family meals together. Bikes, kayaks, paddle boards were available for use. The kitchen was FULLY furnished and was conducive to group dynamics. We also enjoyed the Pennekamp State park located close by and with reasonably priced and safe activities to include snorkeling, scuba, and motor boating. Fresh fish was available for purchase at several locations. The dock allowed my older relatives to enjoy the water and fantastic sunsets. Thank you for the experience!

Absolute Joy!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location. You can't beat the nightly sunsets and the fun on the pier. Everything we needed was there. The beds were very comfortable and the layout of the house is perfect. Sunrises in the front. Sunsets in the back. We could not have asked for anything more. We hope one day we can rent this location again. Thanks to the owner for sharing their home!

Paradise found in the Keys, Perfect Family Vacation Spot with Teens

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, beautiful views, and everything you need right at your fingertips. It felt like paradise the minute we walked through the door! We could not have asked for more in a vacation home. Carolyn has thought of absolutely everything to make you feel right at home. The house was immaculate and the furnishings and beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with anything you could possibly need, including a 1st rate waffle maker and even a popcorn popper for our movie nights. Brand new gas grill was awesome. The two screened porches on either side of the house provided wonderful breezes throughout the living area of the house, and the back screened porch, where we had most of our meals, overlooked the water and was a great place just to relax with a glass of wine and a good book. We enjoyed the stand-up paddle boards every day and took the kayaks out in the evening. We took a day to go down to Key West, which was about a 2 hour ride, very scenic and fun, but I have to say that I could have just spent the whole time at the house as it was that wonderful!. This house was equipped with everything you could imagine in the way of water sports and fishing.

Carolyn, thank you so much for providing the makings of a wonderful vacation for our newly blended family!

Stunning house, prime location, excellent amenities - best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had the best time ever in this house. The description of a "nature lovers paradise" is so accurate. Bermuda glow worms in the water, a myriad off sea life off the beach, Manatees off the dock, dolphins jumping in the distance, and the blue stripped grunt I caught off of the dock made this vacation the most memorable my family has ever had. We have three daughters and they had the time of their lives. The house is very conveniently located near many great attractions and the modern conveniences.

We made s'mores on the beach and went kayaking every day using the gear provided by the amazing owners. The private beach is very nice and the water in the sound is calm and not too deep at all. The house has everything you would want and more from a stand up paddle board to kayaks, floaties, safety devices, snorkel gear, games, balls, chairs, hammock, even a Belgian Waffle machine in the gorgeous kitchen!

The owners were so kind and so helpful! They went out of their way to make sure I knew how to find the best places to eat and the best sights to see. They were fast and thorough with any correspondence through the rental process and after - they have it down to a science!

The only thing I could want more of is time there at the house. It is a true paradise.

Florida Keys Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

After 1,280 miles and 23+ hrs....we arrived to a clean , quiet and comfortable house. My wife bragged many times about the 3-ring binder with all the local info. We kayaked, snorkeled, enjoyed the sunsets on the bay and coffee on the dock. A manatee was within 4-5 ft of my son-in-law snorkeling. I have recommended the house to friends and associates. Wish I was there now...thanks Dan.
