The Efficiency has a private entrance from the outside and can not be entered from the main house. The Efficiency is like a cottage that is attached to the main house. The common wall between the Efficiency and the main house is your laundry and storage area ( with your snorkeling and fishing equipment). This makes the Efficiency private from the main house. The owners (husband, wife and NO children) live in the main house, but the lot is a large lot about the size of 4 normal size lots in the Keys. They do not have any pets, so you can walk about freely without being bothered by pets. The Efficiency is usually very quiet (many of our Guests have fallen asleep under the Tiki hut in the daytime), but occasionally our neighbor rents out his house to vacationers who are noisy. It is important to us that our guests be happy with the Efficiency, that is why we wanted to point this possibility out because the Keys are a vacation destination and this does not happen often but it can happen. If you read the reviews of the past Guests, you can see that it has not been a problem; we just wanted to let you know that it is possible.
