The Florida Keys are known for the Island atmosphere and laid back attitudes found most anywhere you go!

I want to take you on a tour.....show you this house and its location as seen through my eyes, with the Island attitude and pizzazz  it deserves! As you enter the (Key or City) of Tavernier you will notice some historically relevant buildings on the Overseas Highway. Some of these buildings date back to the railroad era. Tavernier has a rich history and was actually named after the famous French Jeweler Jean Baptiste Tavernier {1605-1689}. Although this name  was mispronounced until 1983. Up to that point it was referred to as Tabona. Today, this Key has charm and is one of the few locations where you have easy access to most everything you need within walking distance or a quick bike ride. The Mariners Hospital Campus is within that same area, as is the Tassell Medical Arts Building and is home to a 7000 sq. ft. gym and Wellness center.

This charming Key also features a Pier One Imports, Winn Dixie, Mc Donalds and the B&B Movie Theater. All with in that same bike ride. In other words Location! Location! Location! But honestly, the real location to be you'll find is sitting on the back porch of this beautiful home over looking the turquoise blue ocean. With a cool drink in your hand and the sea breeze blowing through your care free hair! Island Style! As you are relaxing there is plenty of room to have family and all of your snowbird friends over for a weekend stay. I'm sure they will enjoy the privacy and space this gem of a home offers. It has 2 private En-Suite guest rooms and an amazing downstairs family room/ bar area. Perfect for entertaining and hosting the best get together and parties. Best of all it has everything you need without making a trip up stairs. This room is literally steps from the pool and hot tub and don’t forget- that Ahhhh-mazing view just beyond the pool and beach area. From any of the balconies or from the third floor, you have views that will hypnotize you into that well known expression-Keys Disease. Oh! Let's not forget about the boat trips you'll be able to take from your own private 295 Foot T Dock. Just another very important aspect of this location as just south of the home is Tavernier Creek , You will find all of your boating dreams come true without taking the boat out of the water at Tavernier Creek Marina.

This location is so convenient but is also the gateway to the Bay side, for those windy days when you don't want to go out on the ocean. The back country waits for you. Everglades National Park is also a quick day trip by boat!

I hope I have described this beautiful property as eloquently as it actually is in person and have left you with a burning desire to come see it for yourself, through your own eyes! Please come and take a tour  to see more of what this home has to offer as there is so much more that awaits you.

Call me today for a private viewing of this amazing home. BJ Born 305-619-0240
