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.
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.
