"Our family of 13 people enjoyed a full week at this property. The house was amazing along with outstanding views. The property was well clean that includes the yard, pool and the house. Very respectable property manager and rental property contact owner. Words cannot explain the ROYAL treatment our family received. Our family travels a lot, and this was the number one vacation we all received. We cannot wait to come back to this place again. We LOVED IT!!!! You would not regret renting this home, trust me."

"Everyone in our group of 17 agreed that this was the best vacation ever! The north house, apartment, infinity pool, and grounds exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was very well stocked and the ice machine was a great bonus! Everything was clean and organized. The teenagers as well as our 19 month old found many places to play and explore and there were plenty of toys for the pool or sand. Safety was a concern for our young grandson but the infinity pool was not accessible for him due to a tall rail and gates and the there was only one open area on the wrap around porch for him to reach the beach. The gates to the pool can be kept open if safety is not an issue. The pool guy did an awesome job keeping the water clear and clean and there was no chemical smell which was much appreciated! Plenty of comfortable seating in the house as well as on the massive porch overlooking the ocean gave our large group space to gather for relaxing or playing games. There are also many beach chairs and a hammock. The impressive fish tank was fascinating to watch as the fish and other creatures are active at different times of day. There was sufficient space in the bedrooms as well as large closets and private bathrooms; except the cabana room does not have a closet. There are comfortable queen beds in all the rooms except the master (king) and the twin trundles upstairs. Lisa, the property manager was very friendly and very accessible for questions or issues or just to talk to, and the pool guy was great as well! The rental company was very friendly and easy to work with and provided a lot of information to help us prepare for the trip. I could not find anything to complain about which my family would say is unusual for me! The beach is rocky along the edge of the water and more natural than a public beach groomed for swimmers. You will need water shoes! The ocean stays shallow for quite a way out making it easy and less scary for inexperienced ocean kayakers.
If you are visiting the Keys for the first time, do some research on the area you choose to stay in for activities and shopping. There is plenty to do but not always easy or quick to find just by driving around. There can be heavy traffic on the main road which will slow down your travel during peak seasons. If you are like me and just want to relax in a beautiful, private, peaceful, spacious setting, then you will never want to leave Island Palms Estate! We look forward to a return trip!"

Everything a family could want for a great vacation
"My family of 6 and my sister-in-laws of 4 spent August 15-23 at Osprey. It was by far one of the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. We have traveled all over the world and I must say I have never been to such a well equipped house. Judy has thought of everything you could possibly need from cooking, entertaining, pool play, comfort, and fish play. Judy was the most professional and caring person to deal with. She even let me ship surprise presents down for everyone. I would highly recommend YOU take your family down. The master suite upstairs was great for putting down my 6 month old grandchild for naps during the day. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance or a short drive. We spent hours just watching the fish, manatees and other sea life from the dock. And then, there were the most incredible sunsets every night. Thanks Judy The Richardsons and Gibbons (SC,Texas,LA,Philly)"

"Spent our 40th anniversary at Casa Eroici. Had our daughters, their spouses,and our grandchildren. The house was perfect. Everyone had their own master suites. The house was amazing. The grandchildren and son-in-laws loved the dock. They fished everyday. Caught small sharks, sting ray, puffer fish, and many more. (threw them all back). The game room spacious and spent much time there. Had an issue with the pool, but Kari had the pool man there the next day. Did enjoy the heated pool. We had 11 in the house and more then enough room and the views from the great room spectacular. Would definitely stay here again."
