Imagine a life where you live, work and play just steps from the Atlantic Ocean as the innkeeper/owner/operator of an oceanfront bed and breakfast in the Florida Keys. This profitable bed and breakfast is well established with sustainability and conscious living at the forefront with a strong repeat client base. 3 oceanfront guest rooms, 1 garden view guest room and an innkeeper's suite. Each guest room has a full private bath. One of the oceanfront guestrooms is a 2-room suite. The 3 oceanfront rooms each have a private, screened, sitting room with ocean views and the garden view room has a screened private porch. There is an additional beachfront screened patio with an honor bar, where guests can help themselves to cold drinks and relax.
The innkeepers' quarters on the second floor include a 1 bedroom with private bath, sitting room and stunning ocean views. There is a fully equipped commercial kitchen, where the daily breakfast is prepared for guests, and a lovely second-floor porch where breakfast is served.
Separate massage room, storage room and garage are on the ground level. The property features beautiful xeriscaped grounds, native plants, and a computer-automated salt-water pool and spa. All the amenities that complete the Deer Run experience are included -- beach furniture, bicycles and tandem bike, gas fire pit, Zayak snorkel sleds, kayaks and snorkel gear.
The property will transfer with everything needed to continue operations, and the current owners are willing to assist with training and the turnover of the business. The website, reservation system and mailing list will be included.
Over the past 10 years, the current owners have created this boutique-style organic, sustainable B&B and have achieved recognition as a leader within the lodging industry for water conservation practices, energy conservation, organics, repurposing (furnishings), supporting fair trade and local merchants and much more. Running the inn as vegan owners and as a vegan business, they exemplify the concept of sustainable living.
This property obtained a declaratory judgment in 1986 - attached to the deed in 2005 -- that secures the rights to the 4 guest rooms and to continue to operate this property as a bed and breakfast. Additional rights to accommodate retreats, guest chef experiences, educational tours on sustainable living and classes of any type are vested. The commercial kitchen is approved and a restaurant license could be obtained, adding earning potential and value to the bed and breakfast business.
It is the desire of the owners to find people who want to continue their vision and this specialized business model that is a growing niche in the travel industry.
