"Staying at Almost Heaven truly depicts its name, from the beautiful sunrise to the awesome afterglow of the colorful sunsets. The house is nicely appointed which makes for a comfortable stay.
This why we have been return renters for 15 + years, and hope for many more!

"Not much you can say about this place...other than wow. This place is pretty amazing. The house itself is beautiful: clean, nice decor, well stocked kitchen.....but the view, from all angles and levels, was spectacular.
We spent the days lounging in the sun, in the heated pool, on the kayak, grilling, fishing....
Was a nice family vacation - leaving there to come back to single digit temperatures wasn't all that much fun
Becky was great to work with, and I am sure we will be back."

"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."

"This has been our third visit to a piece of paradise. It's a great piece of property thats perfect for our large extended family, from being able to not feel on top of each other when indoors and preparing diner for the gang. To having a unique amount of land for when we have our family reunion weekend, we can play soccer and shuffle board tournents. Our cousins park their boats at the dock and we play in the clear bayside water, my fiamlly is large and love that we have a space that we can all enjoy and get us all together, we will be back again next spring, counting the days."
