"Really enjoyed our stay in the Laid Back Beach Shack! In addition to having every need anticipated and a fun mid-century decor, the location is excellent. A short walk takes you a good fruit market and a tasty lunch truck or in the other direction, a candy store, pizza, etc. I was able to walk to Publix and the local library and John Pennekamp State Park is also very close by for kayaking, snorkeling and glass-bottom boat rides. Absolutely loved the community dock, where my husband and grandson caught lots of fish and saw the manatees roll by. We will definitely return. The home is as described and Elsa was very responsive and helpful. The house feels surprisingly spacious, very clean and we were so comfortable there that we really hated to leave. Love the house, love the decor, love the location!"

A Little Piece of Heaven! (make that a Big Piece!)
"Our jaws dropped and we were speechless when we saw the view as we walked straight from the front door out to the lanai upon arrival! The condo was perfect! Our stay here couldn't have been better from beginning to end! From the bedroom, living room, and kitchen the view looks like a picture postcard! We were and are still enchanted. Now to the condo! It's so inviting in every way, complete with comfortable inviting furniture, a fantastic entertainment system, spacious master with lots of storage and a walk in closet, and two baths that are comfortable. The second bedroom also has a huge closet where there are fishing rods, various balls, drying racks and extra bedding. It doesn't have a view but does have two comfortable beds with trundles, and a large dresser! The kitchen is stocked well, has a serviceable electric stove, side by side frig/freezer, and ice maker. There is a medium sized dining table with four chairs which we rarely used as the lanai called us! The tile floor throughout made for easy Swifer style cleaning which was helpful as we had our cat with us. There was a breeze from the bay keeping the need for AC to a minimum. There is a washer and dryer in the condo as well. The boat dock directly in front of the condo is cause of some dirt that sifts through the screens. When we were there a huge machine moved many boats in and out of the water.The sediment can easily be taken care of with a dry swifer, and is certainly manageable, and no more than regular upkeep. The hurricane glass silders on the lanai were hugely helpful during the one torrential rain storm we had, as the lanai was safe and usable throughout nature's wild show! We LOVED our time there and plan to return, only wishing it could be for more time. Sky views from the lanai from dawn until nighttime rival any we've ever seen. The owner is extremely helpful in every way, and immediately responsive to my questions. (way too many!) The entire community is welcoming, and we spent many glorious hours in the deep and warm pool. The plantings are luscious and beautifully maintained making you feel like you're on a Caribbean island! Kayaking and fishing are incredible here and the water is crystal clear. Have I mentioned how much we loved it? Well, we did, and can hardly wait to go back!"

"Definitely recommend this property! It was extremely clean and will kept, with plenty of room. The deck on this 3rd floor condo extended or the entire north side of the unit and overlooked a busy canal. It is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping and Pennekamp State park."

"My family enjoyed THE MOST wonderful week in Key Largo at this absolutely AMAZING property - we couldn't have asked for anything better than Casa de Ivy! Thank you for making our Keys vacation so fabulous! Not only is the location of the home ideal, the property itself is breathtaking. The home - gorgeous. The pool and yard - gorgeous. The evening sunsets - gorgeous. We have already recommended this place to many of our friends who are looking to vacation in the Keys. We will definitely stay at Casa de Ivy again - we cannot say enough wonderful things about this home. And the photos do not do the property justice - you must see it to believe how absolutely amazing this place really is. Again, thank you for inviting us into your home for a week of pure heaven!"
