vacation rental description

Directly on the Atlantic Chanel with 6'deep dockage.
One of the most private,200' wide waterfront homes in the Keys.
4,200 square feet with banquet hall that seats 14 and another
addition to
the home I call the tavern aka the Man Cave, complete with unique bar with embedded
piranhas, shipwrecked gold coins and 100 dollar bill for you to try
and find. All rooms have cathedral ceilings and central AIR. All windows  and 
sliding glass doors look out on the water and the boat traffic
navigating past the cannon on the point of the massive compound. 
Authentic Rockaway Fighting chair is built into the
seawall; Hemmingway vintage. No need to take your boat out. The fish
come to you as evidenced by the photos on my walls. Tarpon at
night,nurse sharks, baracuda and just once this year a rare sawfish
was caught from my kayak, 140 feet off the seawall near the mangroves.
Yes, you can catch boring mangrove snapper, but the Florida Keys is
all about catching the big ones that give you a fight. There is
still space for your photo on our walls with your 6' catch.
Anything that swims in the Atlantic swims past this house.
In actuality, the the fish swim circles around this point of land
being a cay.
528 feet of docking space with cut in boat slip for three boats. Lots of parking for your boat trailers. A maze
of ancient mangroves to explore in my FREE single or double kayaks.
Take the kayaks and investigate the boat I shot down with the cannon. 
Please bring four-pound cannon balls
with you, Fed Ex will not deliver.
