Shark Key is a peninsula that extends from US Route 1 into Florida Bay on the Gulf of Mexico side of the Keys just 7 miles from Key West. It is surrounded by turquoise waters, white sandy beaches, lush vegetation and spicy aromas.
Charted in the 1800's, Shark Key was named by early explorers for its shark-like shape. This exclusive gated island community boasts more than two miles of shoreline, lush foliage, sparkling lagoon, and some of the most exquisite waterfront homes in the Florida Keys. Stunning water vistas provide a timeless backdrop for a one-of-a-kind vacation experience, Shark Key is a perfect island paradise.
Common to the 32 houses on the island, you will find a clubhouse, two tennis courts, a picture perfect swimming lagoon with a Bahamian sand beach which complete this idyllic setting. Chairs scattered throughout the gardens invite residents to bask under the myriad of palm trees.
The lagoon and clubhouse are accentuated by the sculpture of a heron taking flight from a mangrove tree and wood carvings of smiling dolphins guarding the clubhouse. Natural artwork also abounds in the form of bougainvillea, frangipani, royal poincianna and other tropical flowers. Coral rock excavated from nearby lagoons is used extensively in guardrail columns, mailbox pedestals, and gateways. Heavy chains, salvaged from a decommissioned Navy ship, line the winding streets.

I live in Massachusetts and own a business there. I travel to the Normandy and Florida properties only a few times a year and wish to offset maintenance costs by offering them on the short term rental market.
