  • Quiet neighborhood, close to everything in Key Largo

    "My wife and I stayed here for a month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and had more than enough space. We had a couple of family visits with a couple and then our son and his family. Even with 6 people, the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths really accommodated them. The neighborhood was safe, quite, and the neighbors were friendly. We had our bikes and could ride through the extended neighborhood and onto the trails in Key Largo. We like to have some dinners in, so the convenience to the Winn-Dixie was great. Also, the house is a short ride to twenty or more restaurants in Key Largo, while close enough to the Miami (about an hour's drive) to be able to enjoy the city's beaches and amenities, if you want. Highly recommend this property.."

  • Amazing is an understatement

    "My mom and I stayed here and this was by far the best location we've stayed at in the Keys. The photos are completely accurate and are the peaceful view you can plan on. The condo has everything needed and offers the peace and quiet you can't get at most of the other rentals in the Keys. The condo is on Long Key, centrally located within the Keys and an easy drive to lots of excellent excursions - or to just to stay and lounge at the condo. The owner, Jerry, was extremely helpful and provided a lot of great info. The condo looks out over the state park (the entrance is a half mile walk from the end of the street with a bicycle/pedestrian path to and beyond the state park entrance). The owners have kayaks (single and double), a canoe and bicycles and there was always one available (there are three other units in the building - two 1-bedroom units on top and two 2-bedroom units on the bottom, including this one). Plenty of parking room for 4 cars to easily park without parking anyone in the parking area. The view from the condo was just as shown. We saw sharks, stingrays and numerous fish and birds every day. We say full grown nurse sharks a couple times and a full grown green sea turtle one morning. I took a kayak out a couple times (once around the estuary and once out to the bay and even had a sandbar shark swim alongside me for several minutes). Out on the kayak, it was so peaceful and private that I felt as if I was the only person in the world. Long Key isn't developed other than the town that this condo is located in (Layton) and only has one small convenience store and gas station so you may want to go to Tavernier or Marathon for supplies (about 20 minutes drive). I also highly recommend visiting the Turtle Hospital in Marathon. It was very educational and great for both adults and children."

  • Hidden Gem in Key Largo

    "This rental, and this vacation, by far exceeded my expectations and was the vacation of a lifetime. As you can tell if you have looked at the availability calendar it is booked basically solid for a reason...Jims home is not only practical but aesthetically appealing, comfortable, and has everything, and I mean everything you could possibly want or need to make your vacation everything you could ever imagine. From the routine visits from the manatees in the canal, to the wildlife and fishing(with poles and tackle provided), to kayaking and canoeing among the mangroves. The home is private, roomy, comfortable, well stocked, I mean honestly the only thing I could have asked for is more time in a day and more hours in a week to enjoy all that there is. Jim is an awesome host and was so helpful pointing out places to go, instruction with the boat and how to navigate around the waters, fishing spots. etc. and like others I am reluctant to give this amazing find away, but I assure you if you rent Jims property you will have no regrets except that you didn't rent it for longer. We already booked for next year and learned our lesson-two weeks not just one!! Thank You Jim...the only recommendation I can make and its no reflection on the property is make sure you bring some bug repellent-its florida and your right on the canal-stands to reason....was told by the locals baby magic baby lotion applied thinly works great...BEST VACATION EVER!!"

  • What a great place for a vacation!

    "Whatever you think when you read the description, the reality of Paradise Cove is better. My parents and my family were lucky enough to be able to spend 3 weeks at this beautiful property. The house is definitely top end, with all of the amenities that you can imagine. It has been kept in very good condition. The elevator made access extremely easy for my parents. For those that are a adventurous, the kayaks are a really nice touch to allow for some excursions off the coast. We were able to rent a boat, which we kept right in front of the house, and the ride to Molasses reef takes about 20 minutes. You can change reefs every day, with lots of surprises and assurance of lots of fish. My dad and I went fishing almost every day, and we actually broke two rods with fish too big to land. In any case, this property will not disappoint you. The owner, Wendy, was extremely helpful in giving information and helping us prepare for our trip, and the on-site property manager provided unbelievable friendly service. If you want a dream vacation, this is the place!"
