Type: Apt. / Condo
The condo is located in a complex called Moon Bay More like a resort than a condominium. Free tennis courts, saunas, a private boat slip, and a dock for fishing and saltwater swimming, to mention just a few of the amenities.
The unit is on the fourth floor of an elevator building, making for spectacular views from the living room, master bedroom, and screened-in porch.
Moon Bay has two pools, with plenty of deck for soaking up the sun. Romantic restaurants, right on the water, are within easy walking distance. There is a bike and jogging path directly across the street.
The condo is a short drive from Everglades National Park. A mile away is ...Read more

Additional Location Information
30 foot Class One Private boat slip included. Electric and water.
Small island bathed all year by the warm Gulf Stream.
If you love the ocean you will love Key Largo.
About a mile south of Moon Bay on the other side of the road. Take the glass bottom boat or better yet, take the snorkel boat. Both go to the coral reef. Take the board walk through the mangroves. Rent a canoe.
Everglades National Park...
You will pass the road to the Park in Florida City as you drive to Moon Bay. Stop at the Visitors Center and then the Gumbo Limbo Trail. Unless you are a serious naturalist you need go no farther. Combine this with a stop at the Outlet Mall.
Most guests enjoy a drive to Key West. Take the Conch Train (tram) ride in Key West. A bit expensive .($25.00) Do not miss the Sunset Celebration on Mallory Pier. I suggest you leave Moon Bay early and stop for breakfast on the way. Have lunch in Key West and have dinner on the road on the way back to Moon Bay. Key West is only two hours away, but eating at restaurants on the water is fun. The scenery to Key West is spectacular. You will travel over bridges with the Atlantic Ocean on your left and the Gulf of Mexico on your right.
I hate jet skis but to my grandkids they are the high point of the trip. You can rent one a few hundred yards south of Moon Bay. They also have parasail rides. ($39.00) You can also rent kayaks just south of Moon Bay.... If you think you may do this ask me to send you my brochure on "boats" and hidden trails.
Try fishing from the Moon Bay pier. You should find all the equipment
you need in the second bedroom closet. You can make up bait from stuff in
the refrigerator. Or, go to the Yellow Bait House for real bait.
Take a charter boat and fish for the "big" ones. Not cheap.
If you are only semi interested in fishing, there is a party boat
that leaves from Holiday Isle. Half day is $35.00. Ask me for a discount coupon.
Try your hand at tennis on the Moon Bay courts. There are tennis racquets
in the same closet. There may or may not be tennis balls depending on what
the previous guests did with them. You can buy balls at K-Mart. There is a basketball hoop. There is a ball and a 12 volt air compressor in the second bedroom.
Spend a day at Ann's Beach. Around MM 72 ocean side. Take the cooler
from Moon Bay and pack a lunch. This is one of the better beaches in the
Keys. You will find ice packs in the freezer.
You may consider driving to Miami Beach and spend the day on their world class beach. Bring a picnic lunch in the Moon Bay cooler if you want to save $. Have lunch on South Beach is you want to splurge.
Rent a boat on a calm day and take a trip to ocean side through Adams Cut.
Adams Cut is a short way to the ocean and Europe. I do not suggest going to
the reef in a small boat with a family unless you are an experienced seaman. Ask for my handout on boats.
If your family can do a fifteen mile bike trip they can get within touching distance to wild alligators. Let me know if you want more information. You can also take a tram.
Everglades National Park: Biking the Shark Valley Tram Road
If you are enjoy golf, ask for my brochure on golf courses near Moon Bay.
Let me know if you need more suggestions or you have any questions. Tell me something about things your family enjoys. How old are the children?
You will find a lot more to do than you can do in a month. We have been
spending time in the Keys for over thirty years and there are still things
we haven't done.
