Cudjoe Key Homes for Sale-Real Estate

cudjoe key real estateThere are a number of (perhaps apocryphal)stories of how Cudjoe Key got its unusual name.  Many Cudjoe Key streets are named after either famous or amazingly obscure pirates, which might include a Mr. Cudjoe.  Another story has the island described in 19th century Key West scuttlebutt as the location of ”Cousin Joe’s” woodcutting and charcoal-making place, of which there were quite a few in the Lower Keys.

Whatever its history Cudjoe Key is a quiet and peaceful residential island surrounding its own bay, probably the best bay in the area for water sports.  The island’s fishhook appearance and bay are such distinctive features that they can be seen easily in satellite pictures.

Cudjoe Key provides a wide variety of housing ranging from ocean front executive homes to both Keys standard canal homes and some extraordinary ones, to the upscale gated mobile home park, Venture Out, on Cudjoe's eastern shore.  All waterfront properties on the island, including Venture Out, have increased in value.

Nearly all the homes are on the Atlantic side of the Overseas Highway. Boating access on Cudjoe is excellent , almost no matter where you reside. Boating drafts generally range from 2-4 feet, but some canals on the fishhook are not as wide and have shallower entrances then the Westside in Cudjoe Gardens.  Eastside canals are also not as wide and open onto shallower water, then the Westside. The more expensive Cudjoe Gardens housing area at the west end of the island has much bigger and deeper canals that will accommodate large boats

Fishing with Jim Sharpe in the Keys

Memorial Day Weekend we went fishing with Capt. Jim Sharpe Jr. It was a great trip! We ended up going about 18 miles out from Little Torch Key. The mission to catch some dolphin .....the end result successful!

Mike reeled them in :-) It was cool! In this video we had two hit at once which made it fun!
