  • Wonderful Vacation Oasis in the Keys!

    "This is an amazing place! We loved every minute spent at Osprey Bay Villa this past spring. We were 4 couples trying to get away from our bone-chilling Michigan winter and this place fit the bill perfectly. We all agreed it was one of our best vacations ever and we are going to try to come back again as a group or with our individual families. The house, pool and grounds are well maintained, open, and very clean. There was plenty of space in the house, around the pool or on the dock and property for everyone to be together or to have quiet time alone. The kitchen was large, clean and well equipped, the laundry room was neat and a bonus and the bar area with its own ice machine (another ice machine near kitchen) and sinks both inside and outside next to pool along with a nice grill were perfect for our group. We snorkled and fished from the boat dock which was sturdy and accommodating. We brought our own equipment but there was plenty there for renters to use. It was set up great with the fish cleaning table and a hose that we used to give a visiting manatee drinks of water. There were lots of fish and other wildlife to observe without having to leaving our place. We also spent a lot of time in the pool and spa which are also very well maintained and professionally cleaned twice a week. The location could not be better. We were right in the middle of everything we love about the keys. There are great restaurants, bars and stores within walking distance or a short drive, yet once you leave the main road and head down the driveway, you are totally isolated from the traffic and noise. There was also a rental place across road where you can rent boats and other water toys and we have to make sure to mention the little gourmet restaurant next to the property that served awesome breakfasts, lunchs and dinners. Do not forget to pick up one of their desserts to take back to the house. It makes the sunsets even more perfect. Judy is very accomodating and helpful and all of our transactions were handled promptly and professionally. I agree with another reviewer who said this was important because you are writing a large check and you want to feel comfortable that you can trust the person at the other end. Osprey Bay Villa is wonderful. Judy is great and we all agreed this whole package deserves a 5 star + rating."

  • Ideal Get-A-way

    "Upon arrival you'll notice secure, well maintained buildings, grounds, and ample amenities. Condo was well laid out and offered plenty of room for (2) to get comfortable. Met several full time tenants/owners whom were more than pleasant and friendly. Make sure to reference the guest notebook and other resources made available. Offers great proximity to attractions, restaurants, and recreational activities. Happy Travels begin here!"

  • Perfection!

    "This house is even more stunning than it appears in the pictures! Picture perfect! Comfortable and so inviting. Our kids were in heaven (never wanting to come inside) and my husband and I enjoyed watching from our 1st class seats on the balcony ~ as we enjoyed coffee, drinks and music from the restaurants! Maria was a pleasure to work with! Can't wait for our return visit(s)!!!"

  • In a word...Fabulous!

    "It was the best vacation we've had in The Keys in a long time. From the moment we arrived, it was perfect. The location idyllic. It sits on a lazy street, in a sleepy little neighborhood. It is great for relaxing yet close to all the places we've become accustomed to frequenting. From the moment we entered the property we knew it was going to be amazing. The property is beautifully landscaped. When sitting on the pool deck, you are surrounded by lush vegetation which while beautiful, also provided a degree of privacy from the surrounding homes. We spent hours in the pool with the kids. We had kayaks and a paddleboard delivered from the Kayak Shack which we used to explore the canal and along the break wall. This became a daily ritual for the kids. Sitting on the upper deck at night, listening to the wind rustle the leaves, or just star gazing was a lovely, tranquil way to finish off the day. The pool area by night, stunning. The house is exactly as pictured. The layout is open with a nice flow. Although spacious, you never feel too far away from the rest of your party. It is beautifully furnished, very clean, well maintained.The appliances top of the line. The color palette is reminiscent of the sea and quite soothing. Doug, our host has provided suggestions for where to eat, places to go. We had pizza from Chad's. I'm not a fan of pizza, but this was really good. We also tried the key lime cake from The Trading Post. It too was an excellent recommendation. The Hungry Tarpon at Robbie's Marina was another great spot to catch a bite and feed the tarpon(they were really hungry). Our hosts have thought of everything you might need from beach toys, stacks of reading material, puzzles and bikes which the kids put to good use. The downstairs room with the entertainment center and ping pong table was where we'd begin to wind down each evening with family movie night. I can't say enough about our host, Doug. From our first inquiry to the end of our stay, and after, he was wonderful. He answered all our questions. He encouraged us to call if there were any problems(there were none), because he genuinely wanted us to have a lovely vacation. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and because of this, we did. My niece who traveled with us, upon returning home, told her mom what a dream vacation she had had, and how now she was back to her old boring life. I'd have to agree with her. It was a dream vacation. We will definitely be back!"
