It is located on the bayside just south of Tavernier Creek. There are over 200 decorated toilet seats as you go through the channel. The themes of these seats range from announcing anniversaries and weddings to mentioning long weekends and local businesses.  I love showing friends and family this channel. It is a 10 minute ride from our home.

A few years back, we decorated a toilet seat and hung it on the west side of the channel. We would drive by and see it all the time. It disappeared after a good storm. We still get a good laugh thinking of that creative seat and have pictures of it at home.

This is just one of the fun activities you can be enjoying in your keys retreat.

South Pointe

Ocean Pointe

Ocean Pointe is a gated condo community consisting of 5 4-story buildings in Tavernier (mile marker 92) on the ocean side. Harry Harris Park, one of the few beaches in the upper Keys, is down the street. It is a pleasant drive from Miami, usually taking less than an hour and a half to get here. Some of the amenities include an in-house rental management program, docks, pool, tennis courts, boat trailer storage, boat ramp and waterfront bar.

I think this is a great investment property / weekend getaway.  You can enjoy your retreat and make some income when you are not using it.

There are currently 8 units available ranging from $319,000. to $449,000. For more information, feel free to contact me.

Dog Friendly

The Florida keys are extremely dog friendly. There are many restaurants and bars that allow you to bring

your pet. Most will even bring out a water bowl for your pet. Out on the water, you see a lot of pets on

boats. Our Lola enjoys going out on the boat with us



Swimming with dolphins is one of my favorite things to do. I have done this more than ten times in my life. On this cold January morning (54degrees), I was the only one who did not cancel the swim(says something about my sanity). This is usually done in groups of 6. The instructors gave me 2 wet suits and after 3 seconds, I was warm in the water. I swam and played with 3 dolphins all by myself for close to 2 hours. I highly recommend Dolphins Plus in Key Largo (mm 93 bayside). Just another reason why I love my keys retreat. Let me help you with yours.

Keys Sunset 2

My favorite time of day. That point where you have 30 minutes before the sun is setting and the big question is “Where are we watching the sun set today”? Will we be out on the boat in the middle of the bay? At the end of the street? At the lighthouse? On our deck?

Whatever we decide, tomorrow will be different. No two sunsets are ever the same.

Just another reason why “I found my Keys retreat, let me help you with yours”.


We all remember the days of our youth when we would be excited about something new and would jump out of bed in the morning. Eager to run into the world head first to experience the challenges, tasks, and delights put before us.

As we got older, we saw this “eagerness” that we thought would never depart us gradually become a distant memory. It was at this point in my life that I knew something had to change.

Witnessing the stress and depression of these people who seemed to once live with a purpose, but no longer, was my rude awakening and what set me on my path to recapture this eagerness and get me jumping out of bed once again!

Right now, as I am sitting on my deck while my husband prepares the boat for departure, I once again equip this eagerness.

Having my keys retreat has brought those days back, and I know they will bring yours too.
