Duck Key Waterfront Home
This 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3,500 sq. ft. beachside residence is in a quiet location on the corner of a free flowing canal and a large Gulf front Bay, with views from almost all of the rooms! There is a private boat basin on the property to moor boats and water-toys. Fish for local tarpon from the dock or watch the fish swim around the underwater lighting at night. During the day, there are plenty of activities (water or land) to keep you occupied.
You'll enter the house to find an open floor plan living and entertainment area. The living room offers plenty of seating with two oversized leather sofas and two leather armchairs. A large flatscreen tv is mounted to the wall. From this room you can see the water from the sliding glass doors that lead to the outdoor patio. The screened porch has abundant seating and tables for al fresco dining. It is the ideal place for bay views and relaxing after a day on the water.
The dining area has a table for 6 and adjacent from the chef's kitchen, which was recently remodeled into an open floor plan for entertaining. The kitchen has a massive island inlaid with a sink and counter space for casual dining, which is lined with four bar stools. Large windows let in lots of natural light and offer beautiful views of the beach and bay. In the corner is a lounging/reading nook...the perfect spot to curl up with your morning coffee while you're waiting for breakfast to be ready!
The third floor master bedroom and balcony are tranquil locations for relaxing and watching the sun set. The master bath has a shower and deep soaking tub. The second bedroom has a four poster bed and a sitting area with a couch and coffee table. The third bedroom has balcony access, and the fourth bedroom has two twin beds.
An office space offers a large desk in case you need to attend to any work while you're away, as well as a day bed as an additional sleeping area and other furniture for lounging.
The attached guest house has its own privacy, charm and views.
The pool and spa will refresh your spirits and enable you to fully relax. A hammock between the bay and the pool deck is a great spot for a nap! The outdoor grill awaits your fresh fish or other choices for fun meals together out on the patio. A fire pit with four beach chairs is located by the dock and a pier extends 100 feet out in the bay with a couple of Adirondack chairs for a sundown moment or just a place to enjoy the morning coffee.

Great time in the Keys
This is a beautiful home perfectly located; great view and facilities. The home manager Shari was very helpful. We enjoyed charter fishing just minutes away, very good restaurant options 15-20 minutes down the road and plenty to do. Key West is 60 miles south. Golf was iffy due to the condition of the nearest course, but we still enjoyed it. We would definitely enjoy returning, especially if it were a bit warmer in late Spring. ”
Keys winter vacation
WOW! Duck Key is a beautiful development and the recent remodeling that Fritz did to his home is Fantastic. The home has a great floor plan and has all the conveniences you could want for. Our family of 8 was very comfortable and impressed. What a nice setting and you can walk out on the docks and see a beautiful sunset. We rented a boat for the week and were living a fabulous lifestyle. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home Fritz. ”
Our group of friends had a perfect week. The home was beyond our expectations, with a spectacular view and a wide array of water toys. We spent the week, kayaking, paddle boarding, biking and fishing. There are plenty of bars/restaurants in the area. Our hosts were very helpful. All in all, a perfect week. Rick and Carol Hoeft”
Wonderful home in excellent location!
I had a wonderful week in Duck Key with my 4 sisters celebrating one sister’s 70th birthday .........we thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks, the hammocks and sitting on the porch with amazing views! The home has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. ”
Duck Key Home
Our extended family recently had the very fortunate opportunity to be the first to enjoy this incredible residence. The amenities this home provided left nothing for its guests to want for in any way. All of the bedrooms were well appointed with linens of exceptional quality as were each of the private bathroom areas The living areas within the home were equipped with high end furniture and the kitchen provided all the necessities one would expect in a home of this caliber. All of this plus a fantastic waterfront setting just steps from the patio area that contained a large pool with hot tub. We would be remiss not to mention the gracious and attentive home owner Fritz, who upon our arrival provided operational instructions of the home, and even provided his families personal golf cart for our use. Great experience, looking forward to our next visit! ”
Easy to Relax in Duck Key!
Duck Key was our first introduction to what the Florida Keys has to offer and it exceeded our expectations. The home is beautifully decorated, the pictures just do not do it justice. Fritz, our host and his staff were exceptional! He is a very kind and generous host. We had use of a golf cart, kayaks, paddle boards etc during our stay. Even the neighbor was friendly and took my husband out fishing one day. Duck key is a more central key but off the major highway, so a very quiet community. it was terrific to have the Hawks Cay Resort nearby to go for meals and we even caught by chance a free dolphin show one afternoon at the resort. It was about a 1 1/2 hour drive to key west, 20 minutes into Marathon and 30 minutes into Islamorada . It is such a beautiful drive to any of these keys, that the drive time did not matter. We spent two days visiting Key West, golfing one of the days. In Islamorada we did a terrific food tour and went back to several of the restaurants and shops on another day. Marathon Key had great food also. The Turtle Hospital was our favourite. It is remarkable to see what can be done to save sea turtles sick and injured. Even if you choose to stay at the house; use the pool, read a book, enjoy the view...your day will still be amazing! Hope to return again! ”
