A sofabed provides additional sleeping space.
The bathroom features a stand-up shower and plenty of space to feel comfortable in every morning as you get dressed.
With access to a beach and a dock, the opportunities for fun in the sun are limitless! Surf the day away, or take a less active approach and read your favorite novel as you lie in the hammock, the waves crashing in the background. The beach is a nesting spot for Loggerhead turtles, so be on the lookout!
Layton, though small, offers wonderful activities for everyone. Head to the Long Key State Park to fish or kayak; then venture to town for some freshly caught seafood.

great private beach, cool house

Can't beat beach front properties in the Keys.
Tim M.Oct 2021
The location of the property was ideal. We were able to visit all of the Keys due to the central location. The private beach and dock were awesome as well as the use of kayaks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were a few minor issues with the house but overall we loved it there
Tori S.Jul 2021
This house had everything you can think of. A beach, hammocks, kayaks, outdoor shower, sand toys, the whole package. We had the time of our lives and plan to make this home a once a year trip!
Hello Tori, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to host you again soon!

We loved the private little island feel and super easy access to the sand right outside the door. We didn’t get to enjoy the dock and water as we had planned because it was super windy (25mph) the whole time we were there due to a tropical situation. We wished we could have enjoyed that but maybe next time. The biggest thing I would address is the mattresses were hard, so we didn’t sleep well. A 4” memory foam would make the beds ultra plush, thereby offering very restful sleep. That’s my ONLY complaint. Otherwise, this place is great!
Luis P.Jun 2020
Very relaxing. Enjoyed the house, the beach, the silence. The house is small so perfect for a family with kids, but no more than 4 adults. If you are looking to relax, and enjoy a quiet moment I recommend it 100%
Edward M.Jun 2020
This home's conveniently located in the middle keys so you have access to the entire key island system. Rarely do you find a home with a beach, but this home not only has a beach but a dock as well. It is well stocked for every adventure that you can imagine, kayaks, Stand-up paddle boards, and fishing poles. The scenery is outstanding and we can't wait to come back.

beautiful beach, very nicely decorated and a wonderful tiki hut and deck area
Chris S.Jun 2019
Private beach, quiet, great deck and huts for shade. Snorkeling off the dock was awesome.
Danielle G.Dec 2018
Plenty of room for our family of 5, excellent views, quiet and conveniently located for exploration or just relax on the deck and let the day cruise by.
Sheila S.Nov 2018
Great location. Homey and well equipped. Satellite was out but was not missed and got a credit.
Judy B.Nov 2018
Very authentic beach house on a rare sandy beach! Nice dock, adequate furnishing and appliances. View is OUTSTANDING! Shade and sun and lots of furniture on the deck.
Nathalie A.Nov 2018
We all wished we booked for a langer period...
Anna H.Oct 2018
If you want peace and quiet, this is it. Only an ocean,sun and the wind. All else is a short drive away.
Pavol N.Oct 2018
We loved everything and we will come back!!!

We enjoy quiet and being away from the masses of people when we go on vacation which this property provided. This is not a 5 star resort but we feel like we had a 3.5 to 4 star experience. Although you could still see the effects of the hurricane in the area this property seemed to have recover rather quickly and was not suffering from the effects. The house and property are quiet and cozy and we were fortunate enough to have good renters in the adjacent unit that did not negatively impact our stay. The beach was pretty large considering there is not a lot of beaches in the Keys we came to find out. Having a nice, fully equipped kitchen and grill on the deck made meal times a joy, convenient and affordable all while watching the beautiful sunsets. Our only complaint was the amount of seaweed which is no fault of the property but it would have been nice to have some rakes to maintain it during out stay. I would recommend this property especially for families with kids who don't want to spend a ton of money and time going out to eat. Rolling out of bed every morning and being steps from the beach was great. Throwing some food on the grill, sipping cocktails all while the kids run around on the beach was a typical day. The property had 4 large thatched roof huts and plenty of umbrellas for shade. There were 3 kayaks on the property which we used every day and also saved us a ton of money on rentals.
Lana L.May 2018
Loved that it is quiet, walk right out to the beach into the ocean. Great dock outside the house. Beautiful view from the back porch where you can sit in sun or shade!
Olivier B.Jul 2017
Beautiful rental location . The place is excellent.
Jeannine M.Jun 2017
Very rare to find a nice sandy beach like this property has in the keys. This is a very nice location to kick back and relax. Plenty of bath towels, washer/ dryer very nice to have when you are constantly getting in and out of the water.
Mary Lynn D.Jun 2017
Stayed here for a Mother/daughter getaway with my young adult daughter. We had an awesome time. We had coffee on the deck every morning, did as much or as little as we wanted to everyday, napped everyday, cooked in, went out for dinner, rented Redbox movies one night and lived the convenience to restaurants. Can't wait to come back here!!
Sue T.May 2017
We loved this spot and it was a perfect place for our family! The water was warm and calm and our 2 year old loved splashing and swimming. We enjoyed relaxing by the beach and had a great trip!
Chris F.May 2017
As everyone else has said, the location and privacy that come with this place are outstanding. There were a few randoms who walked by out by the water a few times, but nothing alarming. The place is a bit worn and could use some TLC on the surface, but it is charming and very romantic. The unit does have just about anything you could need. Plates, cups, silverware, etc. are all readily available.
A few minor complaints keep this place from 5 star territory in our opinion. First, the place needs a deep cleaning. It's not dirty, but things like a good floor mopping or scrubbing of the shower would go a long ways. It needs that cleaning that you do at your own house every 3 months or so. I hope that makes sense.
Speaking of cleaning, the cleaning lady, who was very sweet, showed up 2 hours before we were supposed to checkout. That's fine I guess, but it was just a little awkward having somebody sitting on your porch when you came out in the morning.
As others have mentioned, some maintenance items are still present. The dishwasher was inop for our trip, and that sliding door the folks mention a few reviews down still needs some love.
All said and done, if you are after a quiet getaway and aren't expecting a 4-star hotel, this is a pretty great place to do it.
We are glad to see this guest enjoyed their stay. A deep cleaning for the home is scheduled, and the sliding door has been fixed. General repairs to the home will be taking place soon. We have also asked our housekeeping team to be sure to not arrive before the check-out time. Thank you!

We spent 3 days at this peaceful gem. Accommodations were perfect for our family of four and the location was PERFECT. The private beach area was gorgeous and the surrounding area was great for exploring.
Anne K.Jan 2017
While the Keys are best known as an ocean playground (boating, fishing, snorkeling, diving etc.) this property also gives you the opportunity for a quiet, beachfront vacation. The unit is nicely furnished, very clean, and boasts amenities ranging from an impressive array of spices, to beach towels, lounge chairs and even kayaks. Our condo neighbors were quiet and friendly and overall we had a great experience at this property.
Michael T.Dec 2016
We absolutely loved this place! We love the old cottage feel of the place. Beach front homes like this are becoming so rare these days because big condo's usually buy up little gems and then you lose the charm of places like this. I can't think of any other place in Key West that sits on this big of a beach. It was perfect for strolling the beaches in the morning or watching the sunset from your deck. The kayaks were a nice touch and we loved the tree with all of the hanging buoy's. Vacasa was wonderful to work with and when we arrived we met the property manager, Megan, who was there inspecting our place. She was so friendly with great recommendations. It gave us peace of mind knowing she was there inspecting our place. We can't wait to come back.
Jim W.Dec 2016
Beautiful location. Quiet and relaxing. Great house and location for a couples getaway. Rent both duplexs for an extended family getaway.
House was clean, well appointed and the beach clean.
Can't wait to come back again...
Julie S.Dec 2016
An amazing beach property! The back deck, lawn chairs, hammocks and kayaks were awesome! Great place to relax and we hope to be back again.
Nona N.Dec 2016
Was truly one of the best girl trips ever! Loved the house, location, beach, amenities.........everything! Place was incredibly clean, as had a neat freak with us and it passed her test. Nice dish selection, spices for cooking, though we rarely did as too many fantastic restaurants in area. One of the girls has already booked it for the spring!
Mark B.Nov 2016
You cannot find a better place to stay. Epitomizes the whole Keys experience.
Cynthia D.Nov 2016
We had a wonderful time and this is a great location - nothing better than the sand and sea.
Chessa C.Nov 2016
My husband and I spent a week at the Henry Flagler for our honeymoon. The property was in a great location! There is some traffic noise from the road but not too much to not enjoy yourself. We were alone for most of the time, the other side of the duplex had renters off and on during our stay which was nice! Beside the duplex is another house which no one was at except for two days of our stay and to the other side was The LongKey Town Homes and Condominiums which I believe is all privately owned and not many people stay there either. The duplex has plenty of amenities! All you will need is to stop at a grocery store and grab groceries. There are 3 of them in Marathon. Layton has a very small gas station/grocery store but we went to Marathon to get what we needed which was about a 15 minute drive. The property is located right beside the Long Key Bridge where you can walk on. We thoroughly enjoyed laying on the beach and also sitting out on the dock. We would love to go back someday again!
Nancy J.Oct 2016
Lovely duplex with private beach, dock, tiki huts and hammocks! Secluded and fairly quiet, little noise from traffic since highway is right there, but not bad. Full kitchen and comfy beds. Recommend getting groceries in Islamorada on the way in as restaurants/stores aren't real close (within 12 miles) We cooked all of our meals except our last night dinner. Great for groups/friends or a romantic getaway. Would stay again and would recommend!
Beverly K.Oct 2016
Wonderful spot, beautiful beach, lovely cabin tastefully furnished. A piece of paradise. Hammocks to lay in, dock to fish from or tie your boat. Very peaceful. Good location for upper and lower keys. Go there!!!
Thomas D.Oct 2016
Great experience and will be surely back!
Wynona B.Sep 2016
Definitely a great property to stay at, so gorgeous and away from the rest of the world. Very private, clean, and comfortable. My friends and I had a great time and hope to do it again sometime!
