About Dee and Gary
This is our family winter residence where we dock our boat, fish, snorkel and explore the clear blue waters of the Florida Bay and the Ocean just a few miles away in any direction. Our canal is wide and full of wildife, Manatees, schools of mullet, and many species of fish. A short distance to either Tavernier Creek or Snake Canal depending where your fishing spots take you.
Dee and Gary purchased this House in 2009
Why Dee and Gary chose Plantation Key
Our home is centrally convenient to local shopping, Cinemas, restaurants, bayside and oceanside, charter fishing, diving, marinas, all located within either walking or short drive from our home.
What makes this House unique
Since our ownership, we have completely furnished, customized and upgrated all areas of our home, inside and outside for comfort and accessability for the casual lifestyle so familiar to the 'Keys' and this area. Our screened in porch serves as an outside family dining and lounging area anytime of the day or evening listening to the large palm trees in the breeze.

Wonderful property, terrible communication
We loved our stay at this property! The tiki hut was perfect for all of us to sit around and enjoy the sun and warm weather. We enjoyed seeing the manatees every morning and even got to see a nurse shark swimming along the wall. What we didn’t love was that we were locked out when we arrived. Paul the care taker (that we had no clue lived on the property) had to let us in after a couple of hours of waiting for a response from the owner which we did not receive until the next day. Once we finally did get in to the house we were slightly disappointed by the dirty kitchen utensils we needed to clean before using, the dishwasher that was missing a wheel making it very difficult to use, and the oven door that did not close causing the oven to turn off half way through cooking. We understood this seeing as this is a rental and not always given the best care by renters. What I couldn’t understand was the owners lack of response when we were locked out of their property and poor communication after our stay.
Better than Imagined
We enjoyed our stay. All expectations were met and more. Our stay was enhanced by the dock where we kept our boat. The spacious room was perfect for our two families. The multiple TVs met each preferred viewings. We are planning on returning to same area and same place.
We plan on returning!
Our entire family enjoyed our stay. It is a well-maintained property with lots of amenities. The rooms are delightful and comfortable. Three different dining area choices-inside, on the porch and by the water make meals even more fun! The kitchen has EVERYTHING you need and more-wow! The pool table and kayaks were big hits. We didn't get to try out the bikes-next time! We even saw a manatee in the canal. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
Great property! Very convenient location and easy access to the ocean by boat. House is very well stocked. Kitchen has it all!
Well maintained property. We had a blast.
We will be back again.
Better Than Expected
We found the home very clean and much larger than we anticipated. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The canal gave us easy boat access to both the Gulf and Atlantic. There were kayaks in the back though we didn't take them out (we had our boat). We enjoyed the pool table in the rec room very much. The kitchen was unbelievably well equipped with food preparation items which we really appreciated. The bedrooms were large and clean. The canal side was beautifully landscaped and the large hammock was another pleasant surprise. The screened porch had tables, chairs, couch, TV and pass-through to the kitchen. We will definitely be coming back.
We always take special care with supplying amenities to our home. This is our
family vacation home during the early months of the year.
It is a pleasure to have renters that enjoy our home too.
We have retained many regulars over the years, and that speaks volumes.
We hope to see them again next season.
