About the property

Stand Alone Cottage On An Oceanfront Property

A beautiful cottage is awaiting you on Grassy Key. Built in the original Keys architecture, the cottage is free standing with windows on all sides. The efficiency holds true to its name as it is small, but very functional. Being a stone's throw away from the ocean you can enjoy partial ocean views from your bed on the west and from your dining table on the east. It offers everything you need for a good night's sleep, a refreshing shower and a good breakfast before you start your day in tropical paradise.

After a day full of adventures don't forget to relax at our oceanfront tiki and hammock. From here there is no telling what wildlife might amaze you. If marveling at the beauty of the ocean from the shore doesn't satisfy your fascination for the ocean, then treat yourself to an outing on one of our kayaks. Head for the nearby rock ruins and be prepared to see many dazzling fish.

...back on shore, it's time to eat and we do not feel like cooking or getting in the car to find a restaurant, not a problem, the Grassy Key Outpost restaurant is next door offering a nice selection of dishes, it is also a convenience store (closed on Mondays).

In our neighborhood, Tursi, Gambit and friends are waiting to put on a show for you at the Dolphin Research Center. Home to Flipper in the 60's, DRC is located 1/4 of a mile from the property.

One mile south of us is Curry Hammock State Park. Ten miles north is Long Key State Park. Both have wonderful ocean access and trails.

Three miles out to sea is marker 45, a nice place to fish mangrove and yellowtail snappers, and a few more miles South is Coffin's Patch Reef, a delightful protected area to dive or snorkel. Both locations are a few minutes away by boat from the property.

These are merely suggestions in addition to all the wonderful things that are yours to discover throughout the Florida Keys.

Amenities At A Glance:

-Free use of kayaks

-Barbecue

-WiFi

-Washer and dryer on property.

-Conveniently located in the middle of the Keys at mile marker 58. Ideal for day trips from Marathon to Key West, Key Largo and Islamorada.

- Buoys right off property in the Atlantic for small boats, jets skis and kayaks.

- Beach towels

- Beach chairs

Charming

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage/studio, very homey & well located in the middle Keys. Clean & nicely stocked. Isabelle is pleasant to deal with & shares the grounds including a waterfront picnic area, with guests. Would suggest a few more mugs & glasses especially microvable. Also a small electric kettle would be nice for tea drinkers.

Cozy and clean!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay here! We arrived on Thanksgiving Day and were welcomed by a Thanksgiving card which was a nice touch. The place was not large but it was perfect for us. We did not plan on spending a great deal of time inside and luckily for us the weather was perfect and we did not need to. Despite its small size, the cottage had everything including a small cooler, beach towels and beach chairs for a trip off site to Sombrero Beach (which was also VERY nice). We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the Tiki hut area was and how far out you could wade in the water; the water was so shallow and so clear. We were able to enjoy the grill, tiki hut, hammock and the kayak.

Another bonus about this place was its proximity to other areas of the Keys. Thanks for such a great time. We hope to be back again but in the meantime will recommend this place to others.

Thanks so much.

Great place to stay with views of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved the little cottage, very private, not part of a big resort! We could see the ocean from our window and a short walk to the private beach and cabana. Great location to visit Marathon and Islamorada!

Cozy and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage steps from the water. Very friendly owners, a clean and tidy room with a full refrigerator and kitchenette. A great spot to explore the Keys without being in the crowds of Key West. Highly recommend!!

Charming cabin near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The description is accurate -- it is an authentic and charming little cottage 60 ft from the ocean, clean and in good shape. The owners are very nice, helpful, and pleasant to visit with. Their personal advice helped make the stay pleasant, and they were very easy to deal with. The cottage has everything needed to have a nice stay in the Florida keys.
