I Saw the Harbor Lights (833 Eisenhower Drive - Key West)

If you bought the two bedroom two bath condominium listed by Preferred Properties Coastal Realty at Harbor Lodge you could watch the dawn rise in the morning and see the harbor lights at night from your balcony overlooking the Garrison Bight in Old Town Key West.

You could walk down to your own personal boat slip and go out to deep water within minutes of leaving your home. You could be fishing or or talking trash to friends and enjoying the waters of the beautiful Florida Keys.

833 Eisenhower Drive - Harbor Lodge Condominiums - Key West


I have previously written that I used to own a guest house in Key West. I'll never forget the phone call I received when a potential guest asked if Key West was surrounded by water. Yes, it is. Surprisingly, however, there are not that many homes with waterfront views here. More rare are homes in or near Old Town with waterfront views. Those that do exist normally sell at a premium over other properties.

Unit #2 at Harbor Lodge Condominium (located at 833 Eisenhower Drive) is a wonderful two bedroom unit overlooking the Garrison Bight and within walking distance to downtown Key West. The building is very well maintained and has only three units per floor. The condo association does not permit vacation rentals and most of the units are owner occupied. The condo association is very healthy and has not been beset by foreclosures and short sales. Best of all, this unit has a private boat slip included in the purchase price. The listing Realtor describes the property like this:
"A boat slip and gorgeous views of Garrison Bight come with this pristine 2/2 Harbor Lodge condominium. You'll love this bright end unit with extra windows, designer kitchen, high ceilings and deck overlooking the pool and sparkling water. This beautifully maintained unit also has assigned covered parking and an extra large workshop/storage area."
Imagine waking up in the morning, grabbing a cup of coffee and then walking to your balcony overlooking the Garrison Bight. Sipping coffee. Watching the sunrise and Key West come alive. Maybe later in the day you'll go down to your boat and go out for some fishing. Imagine your friends and family in New Jersey (or where ever) freezing the rear ends off in February and fighting throngs on the freeways or subways. You'll think of your dear friends late at night as you watch those harbor lights-with a smile on your face.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

My photo
Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
