The home was neat and clean. Quite setting. Great views from second floor deck of the bay. Fishing from the pier was great. Convenient to grocery stores, Key West, Marathon, and tourist sites. Hosts were great to work with. Definitely was a place to recharge one's batteries.

I stayed at this property for 10 days in November and I have to say that it is by the far the best vacation home that I have rented in the Keys. The outside is beautiful and private. The property has many trees and has a nice natural feel to it. The views are outstanding. You can fish and snorkel right off the dock. The inside is clean and you have the amenties you need to make yourself feel like you are at home. The screened in porch looks right out over the water and is the perfect place to have your place to have your meals. I would highly reccommend this place to anyone that wants that perfect keys vacation.

BEST PLACE IN THE KEYS
BEST PLACE IN THE KEYS
This home is remarkable and I say "home" because you will feel very comfortable. It is clean, and has all the comforts of home. The screened room upstairs is perfect. You can eat there and still have a perfect view of the water. The sunsets and sunrises are the most beautiful thing you will experience. There is a dock that allows you to put your jet skis and boat out there which we did with no problem. We actually snorkeled under the dock and then across the waterway. Our older boys went lobstering not to far from there on the gulf side. The home had plenty of room, upstairs and downstairs. Our Lab, swam in the water and absolutely loved it. The owners are the best. They do everything they promise. This home is the best kept secret in the keys! Please if you come, keep this place as respectful as you would in your own home so that we can all enjoy it in the future!

Great Location for boaters!!!
Great place to stay!!! Boating access is great, no canal to be going slow. Great place to ski as well!!! Tips: remember to take your sandals the gravel in the driveway is a bit inconvenient to walk on barefoot.

Awesome vacation! Will Go again!
Awesome vacation! Will Go again!
We had a great vacation even though it rained and the weather was bad most of the week. The house was perfect! The location made it even better! Close to Key West for night life. Stores were close by for getting groceries, gas, fish bait, tackle, scuba euipment/air and ethanol free gas for the boat. The dock was awesome.! We were able to park our boat at the end, and the kids were able to fish off the dock all week and caught a lot of yellow tail snapper right off the dock even though the weather was too bad to go out fishing in the boat tll the last day of our trip. The house was bigger than I thought it was going to be. It was like 2 separate units almost. A kitchen and bathroom upstairs and down and a laundry room upstairs. 1 king size bed and a fouton and pull out couch upstairs and 2 twins and a fouton downstairs. TV's with cable TV for the kids downstairs and upstairs. The kids were so excited to have their own space downstairs! There was a grill in the garage for our use and the kitchen had all the ameneties we needed. towels and sheets and blankets were more than adequate! Beds were comfy and the back porch worked great for containing our dogs. I was glad we were able to bring them along. It made for a great vacation! We are going again next month to make up for the bad weather and do some scuba diving and fishing! I think we will definitly be coming back to stay here every summer!
