About Robert and Jane Hoy

Bob has lived in Kitty Hawk North Carolina for years and has fished there for over 30 years, his wife Jane is Canadian and together they have fished all over Northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba. However nothing can compare to fishing in the Florida Keys. This is why they want to share their love for fishing with the rest of the world.

Robert and Jane Hoy purchased this house in 2011

Why Robert and Jane Hoy chose Cudjoe Key

After 10 years of renting houses in the Florida Keys, we decided to build our own house and share our wonderful experiences with the rest of the world. We've fished all over the United States and Canada. The Florida Keys is by far the best place to fish year round. There is so much to do and see whether by boat or driving to one of the other Keys. We love it because you are pretty much in the middle of all the excitement with out having to go to far from home to experience it. We love to jump in our boat and take a ride to one of the restuarants on the water whether it be close or all the way to Key West for lunch. Or on a Sunday go out to Snipes Key or one of the other islands and sand bars for a cook out with our friends.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at "Grouper's Lair". The home is beautiful and very comfortable and we loved wandering around looking at the decorations, inside and outside. The deep water canal is wide with easy access to the Atlantic or the Gulf. We spent our days on the water, diving for lobster or fishing, and our evenings relaxing by the pool and visiting the many restaurants and pubs that are nearby. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a fun stress-free vacation getaway.

Everything We Love About The Keys!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home, complete with everything you need to prepare all those Keys dishes like fish or lobster. The area is known for its fishing and the home sits on a deep, clear canal with easy ocean access, or you can try the Gulf if that is your preference. The pool is the best thing about coming home after a day of fishing, and it is large, clean, and relaxing. We also enjoyed our many trips to Looe Key for the snorkeling & even the 2 year old was able to enjoy the clear Atlantic water. My family thoroughly enjoyed their time, which included a quick trip to Key West, and we plan on returning. The owners could not be more accommodating & will make your vacation a memorable one.

Cudjoe Gardens is located in the best part of the Florida Keys. Your less than 5 minutes away from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Lots of Islands with sand bars for those days where you just want to visit with friends and cook out on your boat and relax after a busy week of fishing. Lots of restuarants and bars and a mini golf course for those days when you want to get out. Cudjoe Key Marina is at the end of Drost Street where you can launch your boat or rent a kayak for the day.

Local bus stop located just off of Drost Street will take you into Key West or any of the other Keys if you don't feel like driving, as well as Taxi services.

Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary is world famous for its spectacular snorkeling and is only a 20 minute boat ride from our dock.
