About Hillary Brandt

We are owners, but we live at the condo for the summer months, the middle of May through middle of October. WE LOVE IT. We are Floridians, living the balance of the year up coast.

Hillary Brandt purchased this condo in 2010

Why Hillary Brandt chose Central Florida Keys

This property is beautiful, surrounded by Hawks Cay Resort. The rest of the island of Duck Key is residential with lovely upscale homes. Great area for biking, birding and hiking with several State Parks near by as well as Crane Point Museum and Nature Center in nearby Marathon.

Key West is a great day trip only one hour and fifteen min away and a beautiful drive.

There are 2 beaches in Marathon and lots of shopping there or in Islamorada.

Duck Key is a safe and secure area with lots to do. Come and enjoy for yourself.

What makes this condo unique

We love the closeness to Hawks Cay Resort. A walk on the dock at the Marina is our favorite way to end the day. Or going to the resort for pizza and eat by the fire pit near the pool. It is truly a wonderful location.

I liked the fact that there were fishing poles in the condo for me to use. I bought my 3 day license and had a good time fishing behind the condo and on the bridge. Also, there is a good selection of movies to chose from underneath the living room TV if you just want to relax after a long day on the beach or snorkeling.

Felt like home

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The property was nice, clean and felt like home! The pictures are very accurate. The marina is located right off the back yard. It was nice to enjoy coffee on the back patio in the mornings looking at the water. There wasn't businesses immediately surrounding the property (with the exception of the marina and restaurant next door, which was nice for dinner) which gave it the home feel. I would definitely recommend this property.

The Perfect location to see the Florida Keys with easy access to all the area activities.

We enjoyed our stay in Duck Key. This Condo was the best location for peace and quiet with everything within a short drive. All the items you would need for your stay were there and it was beautifully decorated. The owner has done a great job remodeling.

You could drive to Key West in less than an hour to enjoy all it offered.

We recommend Island Fish Market in Marathon for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are located overlooking the Gulf, the food was very good and the staff was wonderful.

We enjoyed fishing on the Marathon Lady, they have the best mates we have ever fished with.

If your wanting a place to relax and enjoy all there is around this is the place to stay.

Very Nice!

Property was just as the pictures look. Clean and decorated nicely. We found the location in the middle keys to be great. You can go many places for a day trip from Key West to Miami. Many boating, snorkel, dive, fishing excursions very close by. We recommend snorkeling at Sombrero reef. Most definitely recommend.

Lovely condo in great location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We decided to stay in Duck Key primarily because we had booked a trip to the Dry Tortugas National Park and thought this was a good central location for this particular trip and other state parks in the area.

The condo was very comfortable and had everything we wanted, even fishing rods if you wanted to fish! We ate in most of the time and had everything we needed to make a meal. Although we didn't switch the TV on, there were lots of DVD's to choose from. The building work was still going on but it didn't spoil our stay and we spent a lot of time on the patio watching the boats coming and going. We were lucky enough to see manatee twice in the marina, they were so close we could almost touch them. We've never seen them so close in the wild before.

The complex was clean and very quiet, we never heard a sound at night. If we're ever in the Keys again, we'd definitely stay here again. If you get the chance, visit the Dry Tortugas NP, it's beautiful!

Clean and comfortable

The unit was clean and comfortable. WiFi and air conditioning worked well. Had all items you would need when away from home. Convenient location to activities in the middle keys. We enjoyed taking a snorkeling tour with the company at the Hawks cay resort next door. Restaurants we enjoyed included Key's Fisheries and Herbie's both in Marathon. Also close to Bahia Honda state park and Sombrero beach. Had a great stay!

Located at the entrance to Hawks Cay Resort at MM 61 in the Middle Keys off the Overseas Highway in the fabulous Florida Keys.

This is a remodeled 1/1 which is clean, spacious and comfortable with a West Indies style.

This is not a Hawks Cay rental yet many resort activities are available to the public. The dock, boat ramp and marina store are just out the back door. Hawks Cay Marina and Watersports offers: fishing charters and boat rentals, snorkeling, scuba, sunset cruises, dolphin encounters, jet skis, paddle boarding, kayaking, para-sailing and tarpon feeding. You can obtain you fishing or lobster license at the Dive Shop. If you choose to bring your boat, check in with the Hawks Cay Marina for a slip and parking.

Key West is just 55 miles to the west - a beautiful day trip. See the southern most point in the US.

The lovely town of Islamorada is about 15 minutes up the Overseas Highway and offers wonderful restaurants and shopping.

For you coffee lovers, Starbucks is available in the resort where you are welcome.

Or just enjoy relaxing on the back porch overlooking our grassy lawn, the marina and on to the Atlantic Ocean. Feel the soothing sea breeze under the swaying coconut palms. RELAX, REFRESH, RECREATE
