Cudjoe Key Homes for Sale-Real Estate

cudjoe key real estateThe Island of Cudjoe Key lies between Summerland Key and Sugarloaf Key in the Lower Florida Keys along US Highway 1 and is approximately 111 miles southwest of Miami and approximately 20 miles North of Key West.

There are a number of stories of how Cudjoe Key got its unusual name, as many streets are named after either famous or amazingly obscure pirates. 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 such as snorkeling, fishing, paddle boarding and boating. The island’s fishhook appearance and bay have such distinct features that they can be easily seen in satellite pictures.

Cudjoe Key provides a wide variety of housing ranging from ocean front homes to Keys standard canal homes, some extraordinary homes as well as the upscale gated mobile home park known as Venture Out. All offering a quick commute to Key West.

Nearly all the homes are on the Atlantic side of Overseas Highway. Boating access on Cudjoe is excellent, as the boating drafts generally range from 2-4 feet, however some canals on the fishhook are not as wide and have much more shallow entrances. Canals in the Cudjoe Key community known as Cudjoe Gardens are much wider and deeper and will easily accommodate larger boats as well as sailboats.

Cudjoe Key is home to Cudjoe Gardens Marina, Square Grouper Restaurant and Cudjoe Sales/Fisherman’s Warehouse, among several more locally owned small businesses.

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!
