                            My husband and I stayed at Bo's for a week in March 2013. This rental property was exceptionally clean as well as bright, cheery, and very well supplied with everything we wanted and needed. It is just as described - even better! It's in a great location, only a short drive to Key West and close to Bahia Honda Beach which we visited several days and saw live conch while snorkeling. The kayaks were a blast and the pool and whirlpool were very clean and well maintained! Valerie is absolutely the most helpful manager I have ever met - she gave us lots of tips on great places to eat, fishing charters, snorkeling, sightseeing, etc. On our second day there, she came paddling up on one of the kayaks after a day of lobster fishing and GAVE us three fresh, straight from the sea lobsters. We cooked them on the grill (that worked like a charm) that night - eating doesn't get any better than that! However, for restaurants "The Square Grouper" is amazing!! There is so much to do in the Keys - we didn't have nearly enough time to do everything we wanted to. We hope to be able to visit again and will definitely stay at Bo's Tropical Get-a-Way!!

                            My fiance and I had time for a quick trip to the Keys and luckily discovered Bo's while conducting last minute searches for places to stay. The place was perfect for us! The photographs were accurate and the view and location is absolutely breathtaking! The property was very clean and well-maintaned and Valerie was extremely accomodating! Bo's is not far from the Keys and has a wonderful pool, hot tub and mini beach as well. Everyone we met at the resort was extremely friendly. This was my first time to stay in the Keys and my first time kayaking...we will definitely be back to Bo's and next time we will be bringing the boat for an extended stay!

                            This was our 2nd time renting this unit. It was just renovated and it was very clean and right on the water. They had kayak's for us to use and Key West was very close. The diving and fishing were excellent... We are looking forward to our next visit to Bo's Tropical Getaway.

                            Owner response: Hi Kate, Thanks a million for taking the time to write a review for Bo's Tropical Get-A-Way in the Florida Keys. I am really glad you enjoyed the kayaks - we now have one two-person kayak and two single person kayaks. Hope to see you soon! Best regards, Valerie

                            My family had a great time staying at Venture Out with all of its amenities and great hospitality. The Unit was clean, bright and very well furnished. It was peaceful and relaxing with a great view of open water. My daughter and I enjoyed the wildlife (the fish and turtle in the canal, pelicans, and the close up, friendly Egret that was as tall as my daughter (wow!)). We also visited the Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key next to Marathon where we enjoyed dolphin shows and my daughter had a great experience in painting with a dolphin (she loved it!). For great restaurants, shopping and entertainment, Key West was just a short drive away (great town with a great atmosphere (fun!)). My daughter keeps asking when can we go back. Great family trip! Hope to go back soon!.

                            We took our family and had a wonderful time. The unit was clean and well furnished. It is right on the water and was 23 miles from Key West. The pool was nice and we enjoyed our stay very much!

                            The condo was clean, and wonderful. I had a great stay for a week. The beds were comfy and being on the water was great.Can't go wrong with this rental.
