About the property

Charming Beach Cottage. Beach In Front And Canal In Back.

Location, location, location. This is the best located cottage in the area! One of the only single level homes just less than a 100 steps away from the beach. The home backs up to the canal that takes you out into open water in less than 3 minutes.

Charter a boat from one of the best captains in the area across the canal or bring your own, lift is provided (extra deposit required). This is the fishing capital in the world. You will be picked up right off your back dock and returned with your catch!!

Watch the most beautiful sunsets ever from the beach you can see from the front porch, take the golf cart or walk! Or sip coffee in the mornings from the marble back patio and watch the sun come up over the canal. Al fresco dining? Evening star gazing from the double hammock?

This house is perfect for a couple (or two) that wants to get away and enjoy the Keys life like it is intended. Set off from the boat ramp in the back and Kayak to the mangroves or in and out of the many canals, round the corner and take it to the beach, whatever you are in the mood for. Maybe the manatees will visit you today at the back dock?

Long day at the beach or fishing and want to shower? No problem, we have a great outdoor shower completely private.

Lower Matecumbe is only 2 hours from Key West where you can spend the day and only minutes from some of the best restaurants in the world! Want to swim with the dolphins? No problem...15 minutes away!

We love this home and we know you will too!

"A Gem by the Sea"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back from spending a month here in this lovely Beach Cottage just steps away from the beautiful aqua blue sea. From the moment you drive up you will not be disappointed. The inviting front porch with rocking chairs awaits you whether it be for morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The house is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with two separate seating areas, dining area, large bathroom, outdoor shower and two very comfortable bedrooms with luxurious bedding (Hard to get up in the morning!), well stocked kitchen - a cooks dream - and an outdoor eating area with a grill - to enjoy the great backyard (on a lagoon) and the wildlife that abounds.

The beach is literally steps away - you can see it from the front porch - it is a private beach for the residents who live here - so it's not open to the public and never gets too crowded. It's great to be able to enjoy the Picture Perfect Sunsets every evening in one of the adirondack chairs while sipping your cocktail. The house is located in a wonderful community - the people were very friendly and offered up lots of information on local restaurants, shopping etc.

The location is centrally located in The Keys which is perfect for planning day trips to the various Keys. Biking paths are at the end of the street along US 1 - great to get your morning exercise in - a view you won't get at the gym!!!!

The owner was wonderful to work with and always available to answer any questions I may have had. This is their vacation home and they take pride in their property which shows from the moment you walk through the door. It is so beautifully decorated with personal touches - something you don't get in most rentals. I wouldn't hesitate to rent again - I miss it already!!!!!
