                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We hope you enjoy your stay in the Keys, wherever you decide to stay. You will find as we did that there is a distinct laid-back feeling here that is nowhere else in the US. There is no sense of urgency, no need to stress, no problem that a look out at the beautiful water can’t help. Being Ohio transplants, David and I know cold and snow, and while we still cherish our roots, we love our paradise home of Key Largo. We are boating enthusiasts, water lovers, fishermen, so this is the place for us. Most days we wake to blue skies and blue waters surrounding us! Entertainment if we want, just relaxing if that’s the plan! Not a bad restaurant in sight, glorious fresh seafood at the market or at the restaurant! We hope that you get to capture and experience the island feeling while you are here in the Keys and that you can take a little of it back home with you! We have made our home a comfortable haven for you. We’ve supplied all the necessities for you to have a great stay. Check our photos, call us if you have any questions, we’ll be glad to help in any way we can! Enjoy the Keys! Barb and Dave Handel
