“Earnest Hemingway would have loved this place!”
Reviewed 28 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Some respected friends who always seem to stay at the right places kept on banging on about this secret hideaway they had discovered in the Florida Keys. So we booked.
They were absolutely right with their love for this unique location.
Shadow Point is a very private and secluded wooded headland jutting out into thre vast waters of Largo Sound at Key Largo. Devastatingly beautiful with every kind of tropical and sub tropical tree imaginable.
It would be easy to imagine Earnest Hemingway lounging on one of the easy chairs of the long veranda fronting this special colonial house of the period, and as we English would describe as set in aspic and full of wonderful surprises from those heady days of the elegant nineteen twenties, yet with every comfort for modern living.
A place of important Florida Keys history as the lady owners grandfather conceived and built the canal named after him which connects Largo Sound with Florida Bay and the wild Everglades beyond.
Shadow Point has its own private beaches and boat quay and is the perfect place for those who love nature, messing about on boats and for somewhere secluded, yet minutes away from the centre of bustling Key Largo with all it has to offer, not forgetting the wild and wonderful Everglades, the largest national park in America. A must stay in my book of lovely places!

“Florida at its best!”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Shadow Point is Old Florida charm with modern comforts. The houses are brimming with history, art and personality. And yet there is everything you might want – a great kitchen that is well stocked, good air conditioning, comfortable beds and plenty of nice linens. The screened porch is perfect for watching the sun rise across the water. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. There are plenty of paddle boards and kayaks for enjoying the water right from the beach. The beach is the perfect place to enjoy cocktails in the evening breeze. When you discover Shadow Point you will not want to leave!

“The perfect place to relax and enjoy”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband and I had the most enjoyable, unforgettable experience staying at Shadow Point on Largo Sound. The house itself was extraordinary; clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. The porch is the perfect place to start every morning with coffee and sunrise. Our days were spent on the beach kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling and then on to appetizers and cocktails in the late afternoon breeze. There is nothing better than sharing quality time with good friends and family in a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere. We will return.

“Favorite place on the planet!!!”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This property is 2.5 acres of the most beautiful property left in the Florida Keys! There is nothing like it anywhere. Surrounded by water on three sides, you feel like you are on an island. It is absolutely classic old Florida at it's finest. You feel as though you have gone back in time. Once you arrive all of your cares and stress slip away. The property, gardens and beach are perfectly maintained and the houses have everything you need for a carefree vacation. I love going out to eat, but it is so wonderful here that I never want to leave the property! We were married here three years ago and just revisited for our anniversary. Absolutely perfect is all I can say and I can't wait to go back!!
