This slice of heaven is a most serene and tranquil setting for enjoying a spectacular sunrise, unforgettable sunsets, relaxing privately, entertaining friends, or as a launching post to enjoy all the wonders of the Ocean and the Gulf. Arguably, the best place in all of the Keys to have a retreat.
Panoramic views await you and your guests. Located just minutes by boat from the exclusive Little Palm Island Resort; a short boat ride to one of the most beautiful snorkeling and dive sites in North America: Looe Key Reef; immediate access to both deep sea and backcountry fishing; you are nestled in the heart of the historic Florida Keys.
Duval Street in the heart of old town Key West is a scenic half hour away from the house, and the airport is a 25 minute drive.
Within 5 minutes from the house, you will find - a state of the art fitness facility, a wonderful wine and liquor store, a neighborhood grocery, a hardware store, dive shops, countless bait and tackle shops - one of the best restaurants in the Lower Keys (1 minute up the street - the Square Grouper) and several local restaurants and watering holes with putt putt golf and live entertainment. Big Pine is 10 minutes from the House - and has a Walgreens, CVS, a Winn Dixie Grocery Store, a great bike rental shop and a full service boat service shop/marina.
There is a newly refurbished bike path throughout the Lower Keys on Highway 1, so if you are a bike enthusiast, you will love it!

We took our adult twin daughters, and their husbands, to the keys and stayed in Elizabeth's beautiful home. Truly everything about L'Anquesa was idyllic; from the view to the location, the outfitting of the home, the ease & comfort with which the home flows and the overall atmosphere. Even though L'Anquesa is not a luxurious hotel, it feels as if every need is tended to and is surrounded by absolute beauty. But, even better than a 4 star hotel, we all had our own "suites" complete with privacy and fully outfitted baths and yet had the closeness of a home when we all wanted it. The main family room is warm & inviting, literally steps to the ocean, has an open, fully outfitted kitchen and many more than the 6 of us would be very comfortable lounging here. The pool is perfect, there is an outside "family room" which we didn't even know about before we arrived, with large flat screen TV and fully equipped bar, open to the pool and the beautiful landscaping. You can feed a huge family from the grill, pots, pans, tools.......everything you have in your own home is here and, equally important, it's all spotless. The views from every room, including all the bedrooms, is limitless and perfect. There is a boat slip on the property so we rented a boat for the week which made for even a better time. And Elizabeth was a dream. From questions prior to booking to getting back to me about what we should do if Hurricane Matthew hit during our stay (it did not....we were fortunate as it was close!), Elizabeth always got back to me quickly and informatively. I do not like to travel, I am most definitely a home-body. Although I am still a home-body I would not hesitate to go back to L'Anquesa. It was absolutely perfect in every way for the 6 of us.
This home, in person, is even better than the pictures on the website! The beautiful landscaping gives you a sense of extreme privacy in a lush tropical resort. The property is teeming with marine and mammal wildlife. We saw a manatee, shark, horseshoe crab, iguanas, and a plethora of bird species right in the waters, not even five feet from the land! Waking up in the morning to gorgeous sun rises after sleeping on the most comfortable beds, then jumping in the heated pool; totally rejuvenated our minds and bodies! Ms. Elizabeth catered to our every need and her advice on where to eat, shop and sightsee was spot on! Visiting the Dry Tortugas national park by seaplane was breathtaking! We sincerely recommend this exceptional home!
This home is 100% as advertised on the VRBO listing. Spectacular views from every room and the back yard / pool. We loved the kayaks, the pool, and all the nearby restaurants. The service and information provided by the owner was everything we could ask for. We highly recommend this home for a special occasion get away!
Our family enjoyed a week in Cudjoe Key at this beautiful home. We brought our 24 foot boat and were pleased with the boat dock and easy access to the water. The pool area and outdoor kitchen were great places to spend the time when the weather was not suitable for being on the boat. The home has fantastic views and a great rooftop area where we watched sunsets each night. Elizabeth has done a fantastic job with the furnishings in the house. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants a beautiful place to stay in the lower keys!
WOW......definitely the first response when entering the main living area of this incredible home. The views, the decor, the landscape....all are outstanding. The photos provided in the VRBO Ad truly reflect the beauty.
With seven house guests, this home was adequately equipped for comfort for all guests. The top floor, dual Master Suites were absolutely stunning, with a wrap around deck overlooking the ocean. The Bidets in the In Suite baths were a real treat for all of the guests.
The roof top deck provided spectacular views of the ocean, sunrise, sunsets and stars. It was a little too hot to sun but you had the gorgeous pool for that purpose.
I dropped one star in the rating due to the amount of stairs in this home. Ours was a 50+ crowd and the continuous up and down stairs was a challenge for some. The pool does not have a pool bath, which requires a full flight of stairs whenever you needed the facilities. Coming in and out of the home required a full flight of stairs. The Master Suites required two full flight of stairs and the roof top deck required three flights of stairs. BUT, in defense, this style and architecture is required in the Florida Keys with its low elevation and seaside location. This home is not recommended for the elderly, those with health issues, and/or very young children (bring the baby gates).
Restaurants that are hard to find but worth the search: No Name Pub on Big Pine Key and Hogfish Grill on Stock Island.
Boat Rental: We used Big Pine Boat Rentals at mile marker 24.5, great service, great price, and helpful in getting us to Looe Key for snorkeling.
Fishing: Southpaw Fishing Charter, Captain Brad. Although the fishing was slow, Captain Brad searched the high seas to put us on Dolphin and Sailfish.
Thanks to Elizabeth for her timely response to all inquiries and for assisting with all of our needs.
