Great place to stay!
Great place to stay!
Had a great time staying in this home! The owners had EVERYTHING we needed! They were also very helpful with any questions that we had. It was so convenient to hop on our boat and fish, lobster and snorkel! Everything we wanted to do on the boat was just a short ride away! The resort was quiet and the people in town were very friendly. Can't wait to come back next year! Thanks again!

Great house in Cudjoe Key!
Great house in Cudjoe Key!
My father, myself and two friends planned a weekend to Cudjoe Key and heard from an acquaintance that the Venture Out Community was a good option. Well they were right, but more importantly this house was what made the trip worth it. It was in excellent condition, nicely decorated and had all you needed for a great weekend of fishing, diving and enjoying your catch. Nice dock, fish table and bait freezer. Very well located to both Atlantic and Gulf. I plan to stay there again in the future...Thank you Jim and Liz.

Owner response: Thanks for the supper review Ted. We are glad to hear you had such a great time fishing and diving. Hope you left some fish and lobsters for us. We certainly will look forward to your return to our home in Cudjoe Key. Regards Jim and Liz
My husband, two teenage children, brother and myself recently stayed in this wonderful house and loved it. Not only was the house terrific, but it is perfectly located between all the best activities of the FL Keys. You are only about 30 minutes from the fun of Key West. Looe Key is a short boat ride to the prettiest reef I have snorkeled on. Lobster and fish are plentiful as most of the tourist stay in Marathon. I will definitely be staying on Cudjoe Key again. The house provided everything we needed and was looking for...dock with bumpers, bait cooler, fish cleaning table, outside shower which is wonderful to just rinse off after a long day of being sticky from salt water, comfortable beds, washer & dryer and all the supplies you would need. We only had to buy the food for our time there. Jim and Liz, thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful house for our family vacation. We would definitely keep you in my rolodex for our next trip.

Owner response: Rachel thanks for the outstanding review. We are so happy you and your family had a great time in the Keys. My wife and I do spend a lot of time and money keeping our place as beautiful and well stocked as possible. If it is broke or worn we replace it. I think we have back up for everything. I am glad you like the outdoor shower; we call it the "Pool Shower" and love it after a day out on the boat. It would be great to see you return next year. Regards Liz and Jim
Jim and Liz, Wanted to thank you for providing a wonderful home for us to vacation at there at Venture Out. We rented a boat and were able to get to Looe Key easily as well as explore the north side of the bridge when the seas were a little to high. The home was well furnished and comfortable. We enjoyed fishing canal out back and riding the bikes over to the pool. I would recommend this rental to anyone who wants to relax or wants quick access to Looe Key for diving and snorkeling. Thanks again and hope to see you next year.

Jim and Liz, I rented your lovely home in Cudjoe Key for a week. Found the home to be in great shape, fully furnished and ready to have fun. The house lacked nothing and was one of the best kept houses we have stayed at. We docked our boat behind the house in a very clean canal. Was able to go out fishing almost every day. Loved the freezer downstairs that had ice blocks and a place to keep your bait. At the end of the day, the kids and I took a swim in the community pool. Pool was very clean as was the rest of the entire Venture Out Resort. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to come down and enjoy the lower keys. While you are there, please check out the Slice of Paradise Pizza, as they deliver to VO. We never made it over to the Square Grouper, but I heard it is fantastic.

I recommend this house!

My wife, two daughters, and I spent a week here and it was perfect! The house is exactly as described; well stocked, clean, and comfortable. It's very well set up for boating and fishing, with a large ice and bait freezer in the "storage shed", a cleaning table, a water hose right on the dock to spray your boat down, and a nice covered area to throw your kayaks and gear. The owner, Jim, was super helpful with local info and advice to make our trip a great one. We don't usually go back to the same places because we always like to try someplace new, but I'd go back to this house in a heartbeat! Another note for boaters - I loved the location of this house. It's on the Kemp channel side of Cudjoe Key, so from the dock you can head straight out to the reef, or turn left through Kemp channel and head into the Gulf. Perfect really.

Owner response: Thanks James for such a terrific review. We strive to keep our home clean, up todate and as comfortable as we can make it for our guests. Liz and I are thrilled that you and your family had such a great time. We look forward for you to stay with us again.
Couldn't have asked for a nicer place to kick off our retirement years! The beautiful sunrises at the end of the canal, the pelicans flying by, the palm trees swaying in the breeze - everything we could ask for and more. Very clean and well maintained, close to all the attractions. The week went by way too fast! Arrangements easy to make - will certainly plan on coming back, hopefully for a longer stay. Thanks, Jim and Liz!!!

Owner response: Thanks Betty, we are delighted that our neighbors from across the sea had such a great time. I hope John and his friend caught lots of bone fish in the back water. Come and visit us anytime.
Jim and Liz, We had a wonderful week in your beautiful Cudjoe Key home and could not have been more comfortable! The house is lovely and so well furnished...we lacked for nothing! Absolutely not one complaint from the ambience of the location and convenience of the canal, good neighbors, great housekeeping service (June was fantastic!), and great confidence in communications with you as needed. We would not hesitate to return and are looking at our 2014 calendars!

Vacation for 6 on Cudjoe Key
Vacation for 6 on Cudjoe Key
During the week of July 14th through the 21st my wife, 2 teen daughters, another couple, and I stayed at this vacation home on Cudjoe Key. The 6 of us have stayed at other homes/condos from Marathon to Key West over the years but this is the one place we will return to in the future. The home is beautiful, fully stocked, and well maintained. We made use of the bikes, fishing equipment, and tennis racquets that were provided with the rental. While I enjoyed fishing for the snappers in front of the home at night, I do not recommend playing tennis in the middle of the day when the last time you played was 20 years ago. I nearly collapsed from heat exhaustion, but beat my wife and claimed bragging rights till we play again. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from Venture Out as a whole after reading some of the reviews on other sites. While they are sticklers for the rules, like only parking one car on a site after hours, I found VO to be a great place for a family vacation, safe and quiet. I never hesitated to let my teen girls go for a bike ride, or head out to the pool on their own. The tennis courts were in great shape, the pool was clean and quiet, and the VO staff was friendly and polite. It’s close to the excitement and activity of Key West, and far enough away to enjoy some peace and quiet when you want it. This is a quality rental which I hope to stay at again in the future.

About the owner: Elizabeth and James, live in Palm Beach county Fl. but love to go to our summer house in the Keys. We enjoy diving, fishing, traveling, exercising.
Why the Owner Chose Cudjoe Key:
My wife and I picked Venture Out because it is very secure and has all the amenities you could want. The people here are very friendly and the community has lots of activities. The diving and fishing are great and we love to go to Key West to enjoy the night life.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best amenity has to be the dock at your door step. Just jump onto the boat and take off. You can be in the Gulf or the ocean in minutes. We love to go to Looe Key Marine park where you can snorkel with hundreds of tropical fish in five to fifteen feet of water. You can fish the flats or open water. I have caught many grouper, kingfish, wahoo, cobia, snapper and many other fish. I take my grandkids fishing at the dock and we catch plenty of snapper on frozen corn. There is so much to do you don't have to go out on a boat, there is a great gym up the road, lots of restaurants, a huge pool and plenty of activities within the community. My wife likes to walk in the morning with her friends, bike around the compound or just relax, read a book and look over the bay.
