Gerry's Florida House-What The Keys Were Meant To Be

Gerry's Florida House-What The Keys Were Meant To Be

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 18, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

(Please Note: My Availability Calendar is always Up-To-Date)

Get away from the outside world at this lovely hide-away that

includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a pull-out sofa, with panoramic view of the Gulf of

Mexico from every room. We've made an effort to provide the things

that what will make your stay comfortable, fun and enjoyable.

Relax in our solar heated pool with spill-over spa or soak up the

sun on our beach.

Got a boat? Our dock can accommodate a boat up to 40 feet and you'll

find nearby public launching areas as well as easy access to the

Atlantic Ocean via the Vaca Cut.

You'll spend your time walking down a private dock to catch a

breathtaking view of the Gulf of Mexico, especially at sunset. Or

you can take one of our kayaks and get an up-front view of the

placid waters. If you want to swim or snorkel, you can dive in right

off the dock (we'll provide the snorkeling gear, you bring the swim

trunks). If this doesn't get you in the Keys mood, three of

Florida's top beaches are less than 15 minutes away. You'll be glad

to get your feet wet in the crystal-clear Atlantic Ocean waters. At

the beach, you can bask in the warm sun, swim, or snorkel.

A trip to the Keys would not be complete without fishing. Take our

fishing equipment (rods and reels) grab your own tackle and bait and

set out on a quest to grab yellowtail, mangrove snapper, grunts,

tarpon and all the other species native to the Keys. Don't forget

about taking those famous spiny lobsters in season.

The Keys are famous for fishing, whether it's back-country, fly,

bottom, reef or deep sea. You can hire guides, charters

and party boats which are all locally available for a fun day on the

water.

We're minutes away from the famous Dolphin Research Center. Call

ahead to schedule a swim with the dolphins or just enjoy a day, or

an hour watching fun-filled, exciting sessions with the dolphins.

Still not enough? There's a bike trail nearby that'll take you to

the famous Seven-mile bridge (even better, we'll provide the bikes).

With several great restaurants nearby featuring the Keys' finest and

freshest seafood, there's always a place to whet your appetite. Last

and certainly not least, Key West is less than an hour away. Key

West is the perfect place for a day trip where you can shop, eat,

and watch live entertainment. There's lots of cultural activities,

museums and tours available. Don't miss Mallory Square at sunset.

We have your spot in the sun waiting! Call or e-mail today!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous week at Gerry's. Everything we needed was provided. Our young children loved swimming in the pool and fishing from the dock and we really enjoyed the hot tub/spa. Kayacking was perfect and we really liked the beach bikes. We walked early every morning with our kids in the very quiet and safe neighborhood. The house was so private, we thought we were on our own island and yet we were minutes from great restaurants and The Dolphin Research Center which is a must see. We're already planning our trip here next year.

Location location location...this location was superb...quiet, semi-secluded, few houses nearby, very private. The house was nicely furnished, included everything you would want for enjoying the water-snorkel gear, fishing rods, kayaks. Rental agent and maintenance folks were concerned and responsive...owners are very nice folks. Great area for jogging, bicycling, etc. Half-hr. from Islamorada, 10 min, from Marathon, 1 1/4 hr. from Key West.

LOVELY, CHARMING with a RETREAT FEEL

  • 5 of 5
Gerry's Florida House is the perfect place to go to get away from it all! It is located in a quiet neighborhood on Little Grassy Key. Once on the property you feel like you are at your own private retreat surrounded by lush landscaping, a beautiful pool and spa. Sitting on the lovely screened porch you look out on the Gulf as you listen to the waterfall affect of the spill over spa, you feel like you have found paradise! This time of year the sunsets were beautiful offering reflecting colors of the rainbow on the ripples of the water. The pool and spa were enjoyed daily, being clean and well maintained. Kayaks, bikes and fishing equipment are available for your use as advertised. Walk 100 feet out to the dock especially at night to enjoy star gazing or look at the fish swim around by the spot light in the water. The home offers comfortable bedding and furnishings, a kitchen with all the pieces of equipment one needs to cook a gourmet meal to enjoy. However, if you prefer to go out to eat there are plenty of wonderful restaurants fairly close by to enjoy delightful meals with a water view. Hide Away Cafe was a fabulous find just 1 mile from the home where we enjoyed casual yet elegant dining. Keys Fishery is a great place to enjoy the local "flavor" of the area, offering a sunset celebration each night. Sunset Grill by the Seven Mile Bridge was great also. We also enjoyed a wonderful sunset catamaran sail, (Sailing Catamaran "Sirius" Ocean Sailing, Inc). Include a day trip to Key West while there and you won't be sorry. Be sure to also visit some of the local beaches, Sombrero Beach being a great one offering a wonderful sandy beach, clear shallow water, great if you have little ones, also offering a wonderful playground, clean restrooms and outside showers. Vacation at Gerry's Florida House and you won't be sorry. Thank you to Gerry and Ellis for making your home available for all to enjoy. You are the BEST!

Just got back from Gerri's house. One of the best places I have ever stayed. Well worth the money. Loved everything from the pool, spa, dock, snorkeling biking, and so much more. We went for our 40th anniversary with another couple. I will go back! Thanks for having everything there we could have possible needed or wanted. It was the BEST!

25th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Being our first trip to the keys, Gerry's place is exactly the type of place my wife and I wanted to celebrate 25 years together. The location of the home was perfect. A quiet neighborhood close to restaurants, shopping, and right in the middle of the keys. The house was wonderful, especially the screened in porch, what a view. M wife loved the pool and hot tube. Sitting around the pool or hot tube and looking over the gulf was very relaxing. For an avid fisherman the dock and kayaks were great. If you are looking to fish with a guide I would recommend Captain Christ Morris "Game On" charters in Marathon. We had such a wonderful time that we are planning another trip to Gerry's place.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This house has it all! We so enjoyed our week here. Great location. The owners and property manager were awesome! Either relaxing at the pool or looking for seashells on your own beach!!! We took our kiddos (2 & 5) , Grandma & Grandpa joined us also. We all fit great and each bedroom has its own BATHROOM!!! The kitchen was well stocked and stores are so close. We enjoyed dinner out at Sparky's Landing. But it was so fun to make dinner at the house and eat on the screened in porch area looking out at the water! We all had so much fun fishing off the dock....my 5 year olds first time and she caught so many fish. It was really exciting. We took a quick drive to Key West for a day and also went to swim with the Dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center also in town. The boys went on 2 fishing trips. There really is something to do for everyone. If your looking for some down time and adventure!! Thank you for a great week!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post your feedback on your recent vacation. We're always delighted when our guests enjoy our home as much as we so.

We try to anticipate and supply the needs of our renters, so thanks for letting us know that we are doing this.

Our favorite part of the house is the enclosed porch. It's so relaxing and the views are incomparable which makes it an ideal place to have a nice dinner, as you mentioned.

Thank you again and we hope to see you in the near future.

Best Keys Trip EVER!!

  • 5 of 5
My family (husband, our daughter, daughter's fiance, and our son) stayed for a week this past August. We had been to the Keys many times before this over the last 12 years mainly around Duck Key area. This was BY FAR the best vacation we have ever had!! Absolutely everything about the house was exactly as stated in the descriptions and then some (super clean and all necessary items were there). We loved the location (so close to everything we love - including the town of Marathon with so many great restaurants (Franks Grill for sure and Sweet Savannahs was a super good find), right on the water, as well as the private pool and jacuzzi. I got scuba certified while we were there this time to catch up with the rest of my family. We will definitely be staying here again in the future!! Wish we could go back right now!! Our only bummer was the day we left, tropical storm Isaac decided to show up - but we were so grateful it was at the end of our wonderful trip ;o) With 2 graduations coming up next year, not to mention our daughter's wedding - we won't be making it back right away, but it is definitely on our "to do" list as soon as we possibly can!! LOVED IT*******!!!!!!
