About the property

3BR/3BA Cottage, Bedrooms (1 King, 3 Queens), 1 Couch Bed, Sleeps 8-10

Our Cottage made it through Hurricane Irma with minor damage, but we have taken our time to renovate to provide the best accommodations in the Villages at Hawks Cay.

You will see debris as the recovery efforts continue, however our favorite restaurants, activities, fishing charters and destinations are open for business! These businesses need your support as they continue to restore the Keys that we have all loved! #KEYSSTRONG

We offer nightly and weekly rentals. You can save money by booking directly from an owner. We would love to host your next family vacation in the fabulous Florida Keys!

Professionally decorated, fully renovated Cottage with 3 Bedrooms & 3 Bathroom Cottage located in the Village at Hawks Cay on Sunset Drive. Spend your vacation taking in fabulous sunsets right off one of the two balconies. The interior has been completely renovated. New furniture, bedding, flooring, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, Samsung TVs and much more. You will absolutely love the accommodations our Cottage offers you and your guests. Our designer and contractor designed it with you in mind! Come relax with us in the fabulous Florida Keys.

The Kitchen is open to the dining room and living room which is open and airy with natural light filtering in from the windows and sliding glass doors. This opens up to your own screened in patio which overlooks the crystal clear waters of Duck Key and Tom's Harbor. Sit on the patio on either floor and take in the unforgettable sunsets. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay to dine in should you choose to.

The Living Room has a West Indies motif and is equipped with a sleeper sofa, two deep seating chairs and 52" Samsung TV, surround sound, Blu-Ray player and iPod docking station, free WiFi and over 100 HD channels for your enjoyment!

One of the main reasons The Florida Keys has become a vacation hot spot for east coasters is the weather. The weather is beautiful year round in Duck Key with average temps in the 70's throughout winter.

Two of the bedrooms are located upstairs and have their own private bathroom and TVs, and a third bedroom is located downstairs with its own TV. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a king bed with a new pillow top mattress. The Guest Room has 2 Queen beds, both with new pillow top mattresses, and the third guest room has a new Queen pillow top mattress.

We do not participate in the Hawks Cay Resort Rental program and therefore can offer discounted rates on our Cottage of up to 50% savings. There may be restrictions imposed by the resort to use some of their recreational facilities reserved for hotel guests only. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to email.

We hope to have the opportunity to host you as our guests. You will see the Florida Keys has so much to offer. It will be a memorable vacation for everyone! We are here to help and hope to hear from you soon.

About Jarod Carter

Our names are John and Brenda Carter. We have three sons who we are very proud of and 6 grandchildren. Our family is our biggest blessing in life. Our best memories as a family have been spent together diving and fishing the waters of the Florida Keys.

Over the last few years we have started purchasing, renovating and renting our properties as vacation rentals. It is a business that we really enjoy and find it very fulfilling. We get to host families from all over the world in our paradise and hope to help them create memories with their families, as we have. We hope to have you as our guests soon!

Jarod Carter purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jarod Carter chose Duck Key

Of all of the places we have entertained business guests through the years, Duck Key and the Villages at Hawks Cay is by far the nicest place in the Florida Keys. The grounds are so beautifully maintained, the level of service is a step above and the things to do are endless.

The Villages of Hawks Cay is also conveniently located in the middle of the Keys. It is very easy to go to Islamorada and spend the day shopping, sightseeing or having dinner. Then you can head to Key West the next day which is only a 60 mile drive south. While it is in the heart of the Keys, you are still on an island which provided you with the privacy you expect when wanting to get away and take in the laid back lifestyle the Florida Keys is known for.

No matter what your agenda for your next vacation, the Villages at Hawks Cay has something for everyone.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property went through a full remodel and was completed in April 2013. The remodel took all of 60 days and consisted of new bathrooms, kitchen, flooring, mouldings, paint, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops in both the kitchen and master bath and new furnishings. All renovations were overseen by our designer and general contractor. We are proud of the way the property turned out. This is not a cookie cutter Hawks Cay Cottage. It is modern and unique with very high end finishes.

We have the best cleaning staff around, who shares our high standards. The Cottage is equipped with everything you'll need to spend the weekend, the week or over a month with us comfortably. We purchased all new cutlery, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, glasses, cups and all small appliances. No expense was spared with this renovation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your vacation home with us. We had a wonderful time celebrating my 60th Birthday here! We loved swimming in the pools, snorkeling in the lagoon, swimming with the dolphins & sightseeing in Key West! You have a beautifully decorated & furnished home. We hope to come back someday. Thanks again.

Great trip to the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful home and the breathtaking views! The home is very well kept and looks just like the pictures. The only downside is that you cannot use any of the resort's amenities but you can use the pool at Cabana Club. Our family had a great time and we will be back.

Loved the Carter Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house to spend time in the Keys! Based at mm 61, great location to Marathon and also Islamorada.

The Cottage was a great choice for 3 couples with 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The kitchen was well appointed with all necessary items ( Kuerig and even a Cuisanart coffee maker).

We would definitely stay here again if our travels take us to the Keys. Thanks, Jarod!
