About Laurel Rafford Owner-Agent

I am a recently retired Postmaster and long time Realtor who has lived in the Keys since graduation from Boston College 30 plus years ago. I came to the Keys for a visit and never left. Life has been great here in paradise!

Laurel Rafford Owner-Agent purchased this house in 1991

Why Laurel Rafford Owner-Agent chose Upper Florida Keys

This property is a legal waterfront ground level duplex I have owned since 1991. My husband is a 100 Ton Master Captain who has lived here all his life. He specializes in charter and commercial fishing and also boat transport. We live on the west side and we have rented our wonderful east side since 1996. We are not absentee owners like many of the properties I take care of but here to help our customers by offering expert and reliable suggestions for the best individually tailored vacation goals that only a long time local can offer. If you need us we are there if not the property is set up for total privacy between both the units and outside yard space for perfect waterfront enjoyment!

What makes this house unique

This is a unique and special spot! Located in the popular family neighborhood of Plantation Key Colony. We are blessed with a small town feel in a very tropical island setting.surrounded by clean blue living water. A place you can still safely ride a bike or take a morning or evening stroll. where everyone you pass will stop and say Hi! I have been blessed to travel the world but there is no place like this Plantation Key Paradise home!

Very Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The listing information and photos for this property are very accurate, and the backyard area is very large, with lots of choices for sun, shade, chairs and loungers, all close to the deepwater canal where manatees often pass by. A/C worked well, (there are also ceiling fans in each room) multi-nozzle shower was great, kitchen was fully equipped, nice laundry facility. Because of the layout of the rooms, (bathroom entrance is in the second, twin, bedroom) this property is best suited to a couple, or family with children, rather than two couples.

Located in a residential area about 3 blocks off the overseas highway, the area is very quiet and minimal traffic allows for a nice walk around the neighborhood. A well-stocked mini-market, as well as some decent restaurants, are a 10 minute walk away. Two miles up the highway is a supermarket, movie theaters, fast food places etc.

The owners provided us with a large folder containing information on restaurants, shopping, parks, etc, which was very helpful. And for that rainy day, or in the evenings, there was a big HDTV with lots of channels to choose from! We had a wonderful time here!

Fun and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I were looking for a tropical, relaxing, and laid back vacation spot and found this property and the wonderful hosts to be a perfect fit! This property is the perfect location just an hour and a half from Miami and Key West. If you want to explore other parts of the keys and take day trips around southern Florida, this is a a great place to call home base. We were able to go to the public beach, explore tasty restaurants with beautiful water views, go fishing on the ocean and even explore Miami for a day. The owners are warm, welcoming and truly care about helping you create your perfect vacation getaway in the keys. They recommended great eating places and local businesses to contact if you want to go on some adventurous excursions. And be sure to ask about fishing charters with Captain Tayne. You get an Eco tour and a fishing trip.... One of a kind experiences and memories to last a lifetime. This property is quiet, private and an oasis for anyone looking to relax. Sitting on the canal off your back porch you can see manatees in the canal, fish jumping and many different birds. The wildlife is astounding! Be sure to take advantage of this property! You will not regret it.
