Plantation Key house description
Kick off your Bruno's and Blahnik's, slide into your flip flops, concoct yourself a margarita and melt the stress away in minutes...Welcome to paradise and everything under the sun!
This charming 5/4 has been fully updated. Upstairs is a spacious all new 3/2, an amazing kitchen and a master with its own bath. The master has a king bed, it's own TV and a beautiful slate shower with a bench. The other two guest rooms share a newly remodeled bath with a granite top vanity and a tub. One guest room has a queen bed and the other has a bunk bed(2 singles) and a double size futon. The guest rooms also have their own private balconies to enjoy the ocean breezes. Upstairs has a great foosball table. TV room has a nice wide screen HDTV with surround sound, DVD/CD player, and an FM/AM receiver. The entire back of the house is an open air balcony overlooking the backyard and dock and pool.
The downstairs is a more casual 2/2 with it's own kitchen, dining and entertainment center. One room has 2 double beds and the other has one queen size bed. The entertainment room also has a fold out futon bed. Downstairs there is a great covered paved patio area to hangout and enjoy the ocean breezes in our unique 4 person hammock lounge, our cozy full size hammock, or our 4 person bar.
Adjacent to the covered terrace is the pool and spa area. The spa holds 5 people and is on its own deck near but seperate from the pool. The pool is heated and has an extra large first step. Max depth is 5.5 feet.
This house is in the perfect location for a family keys getaway. It is located on Mile Marker 90, Plantation Key, right off of the Tavernier Creek bridge on the oceanside. This means you are literally 6 houses in from the Ocean on a deep water canal with no bridges to the ocean and a 70 foot sea wall with a fish cleaning station at your back door. You are minutes from the crystaline waters off the reefs and the world class blue water deep sea fishing of the Florida Keys. If you are a backwater fisherman then you can drop your boat at a nearby marina and keep the trailer on the side of the house. You have the best of both worlds because you have access to oceanside fishing or back country fishing through Tavernier Creek bridge.
Around the corner is a great little shallow water basin where you can kayak and see the bonefish tailing. We have 4 other worthwhile kayak mini trips you can take from the house. Pick one and go. Info for your trips is detailed at the house. Right outside the channel you have Pennekamp State park to the North and prime fishing grounds and reefs to the south.
Within walking distance (1/2 mile) you have a dive shop with dive trips, 4 restaurants, and a grocery store. Within a mile you have a CVS, movie theater, post office, a big grocery store, a Dollar Store, and a multitude of great restaurants for dining. A couple of miles to the south you have Islamorada's Founder's Park with an olympic size pool with lifeguards, a water park, basketball and tennis courts, walking and jogging courses, a playground and a beach.

Great Vacation Location
Great Vacation Location
Our family has been vacationing in the Keys every year for the last 10 years and this is the 2nd time we rented this home an had a wonderful time. Plenty of space house and pool, spa very clean upon arrival. The location can't be beat with quick access to the Atlantic as well as the Gulf. We have stayed from Key Largo to Key West and plan to make this home our permanent vacation home.

I don't know where the people stayed in the March review but its not the same house we stayed in in May this is our second year staying there and we just booked next year. We love the layout of the house it affords a getaway down stairsfor me time with a huge TV and kitchenette along with 2 baths and 2 bedrooms. The upstairs has a great layout for large groups you can set at the bar or join friends at the large dining table. We do all of our meals in and this is just a perfect setup for our large group 8-10 adults. We love to come in from fishing all day and relax by the pool and under the covered patio. Its a great all kinds of weather getaway. We found the house to be very clean and well stocked for our vacation needs. The house is 2 blocks from the ocean by boat which makes it the perfect boating getaway. This is the sixth house we have stayed in the Keys and by far the best that we have found for our needs. We look forward to coming back again next May. Its the ideal house for all with the pool and hottub for children and young adults and very convient to activities and shopping for adults.

DO NOT RENT
DO NOT RENT
I hate to say anything bad but people need to be aware! This is our 5th property renting from VRBO. Everything has been reasonably priced and beautiful! We have stayed in the Keys before, in a condo and this year decided to rent a house. The property was a DUMP and the rotting smell of garbage never left the home. People even came to clean again and they called that house the smelly house!! It was unbearable!! If we could have found other accomadations we would have! The Kitchen sink was clogged the entire time, we were constantly plunging the toilets there was no hot water or water pressure, and one shower didnt even work. The beds had a plastic on them and were very uncomfortable. The furniture was so stained we had to put sheets over them to sit on it....gross. The towels were so old and stained and there were no pool or beach towels. Both the pool and hot tub were disgusting, someone did come to clean them but I never used them. The pool is under the patio and that part of the property gets very little sun... a pool seemed useless! The pictures look nice but it is all superficial! I highly suggest you avoid this property!! I dont know where the other people stayed that reviewed this property because my family did not enjoy it!!

Owner response: I take my reviews very seriously and constructively. I always request them directly from all my guests but few post here. However these people were clearly on a mission from the moment they walked in the door. The woman called me immediately to tell me the pool had leaves in it, the art on the wall was horrible, and pictures were of a different house and that I was a fraud!! Predictably the conversation always turned to money and discounting the rental to the "proper value" of the rental. No house is perfect and at first I tried to accommodate them but soon after I realized this just not possible. I sent cleaning people and pool people to address their complaints. Eventually I gave them an ultimatum in a heated conversation offered them their money back but of course they decided against leaving. Apparently anything short of a deep discount warrants this totally exaggerated and just flat out false review. Full disclosure: I have Toto toilets that are $500 and flush 9 golf balls no problem, still have not called a plumber 2 months and 3 families later for the "clogged kitchen sink" which works fine, yes our pool is partially shaded(and heated) but not leaf proof, our fabric couch(yes kids sometimes spill on it) has since been replaced with a new leather couch, and we have a perfectly functioning tankless hot water heater that never runs out of hot water but apparently "all 4 showers must work simultaneously" or if not then "No hot water" is the complaint. Pictures are all recent and I stand behind them and the quality of the house for the price we charge. We are solid booked through August with mostly repeat guests. If you have any issues at please ask for more recent reviews and I will gladly put you in contact with recent guests.
The house was everything as described and more. Spacious, well kept, nice & clean. Great location with beautiful view. Cant wait to go back next year!

It was such a pleasure to stay there, my stress just melted away just sitting outside enjoying the breeze with my Margarita and listening to Jimmy Buffet, soaking in the fantastic view. The house is very well kept, a super location with everything you need only minutes away. For those into fishing, this is the perfect place. Just hop into the boat and in two minutes you are on the Atlantic Ocean. Did I forget about the fantastic sunsets from the terrace? I'll be back for sure.

Your home much exceeded our expectations. It was definitely a beautiful place to stay. The home had all of the amenities that we could need and was in a fabulous location. We loved everything about it and we will definitely recommend it to anyone headed that direction. We had a fabulous time... Only wish we could have stayed longer

If you are looking for a nice relaxing week, weekend, or maybe even a further extended stay, look no further, you have found Paradise. This great location is close to supermarkets, drug stores, restaurants, and attractions. I highly reccomend this house if you want to be a tourist but live like the locals! And if you are on a budget---the Kitchen is unreal!!! Thanks for a great Weekend! Cheers, Scott
