About the property

The property is recovering from Hurricane Irma, however, our Villa did not receive any damage from the storm.

This Villa is located on Duck Key with Tom’s Harbor at your back door where you can relax and overlook the water from the first or second floor patio. Boat dockage may be rented from the Grassy Key Marina, or in Marathon.

Duck Key is located in the middle of the Florida Keys at Mile Marker 61, between Islamorada and Marathon, approximately two hours from the Miami or Fort Lauderdale Airports. Key West is about one hour south from the Villa.

This is a townhome style villa with a full kitchen supplied with utensils and cookware. There is a dining area and living room on the first floor with a TV, satellite cable access, and a DVD player; and direct ocean access to Tom’s Harbor from the first floor patio.

There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms located on the second floor with queen sized beds. Each bedroom has a bathroom attached. There is NOT a bathroom on the first floor. This unit is perfect for four people, two in each bedroom. There is however, a sleeper sofa that will accommodate two people. No more than six people maximum are permitted to occupy this rental.

The master bedroom has a patio with a beautiful view overlooking Tom’s Harbor. There are queen size beds in each bedroom, with a TV and satellite cable access. There is a clothes washer and dryer on the first floor. Linens, bath, and beach towels are provided for use during your stay.

About Jan Dempsey Simkins

Natives of the west and mid-west regions, but love Florida and the Florida Keys enough to retire here. Both love scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, and bicycling and are able to enjoy all of these activities as residents of the Florida Keys. We pride ourselves on being actively involved with our rental properties to ensure a wonderful Florida Keys experience for our guests.

Why Jan Dempsey Simkins chose Duck Key

This property was our home away from home until we retired and now currently live in the Florida Keys. We traveled frequently to this location to vacation and enjoy all that the Florida Keys had to offer. We have worked hard to make this Villa our home away from home, and strive to make this Villa a home for each of our guests while enjoying their vacations.

What makes this villa unique

This Villa is steps from the beautiful Tom's Harbor. Everything you could wish to do is right out your back door. Swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, and jet skiing, just to name a few. The sunsets are amazing every night and can be enjoyed from our back patio.

The town of Marathon is ten minutes away with charter facilities of every sort as well. The options are endless for this this middle keys villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I very much enjoyed our two night stay in your rental at the end of March.



My only suggestion would be to make the living room couch into a sleeper sofa. My tween/teen did NOT want to share the queen bed in one of the bedrooms, so my son slept on the couch. A sleeper sofa would have made it more comfy for him.

Notes:
A safe is provided for guests to lock their personal belongings. This safe is large enough to place items of value to include a laptop computer. Many guests inquire regarding a outdoor grill. Unfortunately, there is no grilling allowed on the property in accordance with home owner association guidelines. However, there are charcoal grills available for our guests to use at the Hawks Cay Marina, which is directly across from the Villa. We do not participate in the Hawks Cay Resort Rental Management Program, which allows us to offer our villa at reduced rental prices. Consequently, the resort imposes restrictions to their facilities, including the pools to private renters such as VRBO. Bar and poolside food and drink service are also restricted for non-resort guests. If your vacation plans are to primarily spend time at the resort pool/lagoon, receive poolside and bar service, or use the tennis courts, we recommend reserving your stay with the resort.

Perfect location in the FL keys!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this villa. The location in the middle of the keys cannot be beat, and the accommodations and amenities were very comfortable. Extremely convenient to local activities, and the view from the 2 porches were the best place to view the evening sunsets!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find, convenient and close to good food and amenities. We traveled down to key west, but didn't feel the need to explore with it being so relaxing out back. Great communication from the owner!

House was nice, plenty equipped and clean. Porches were super nice and the bay was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

Owners were great, replied extremely promptly and even let us check in early when we arrived.

Throughout the Keys there is still damage from Hurricane Irma, but it by no means stopped us from doing any activities. There are still some restaurants that are not open, but plenty are back up and running. Great time and great property.

We enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We like the location in the mid-Keys. Place was clean, kitchen had everything we needed, porch nice. There weren't many other people there when we were there, which was good, as the porches in the complex are right up next to each other. Place is as described. Tight quarters upstairs - no dresser in the second bedroom. Owner responsive and we had a good time there.
