  • The absolute best of ALL worlds

    "My mother and I recently stayed at "a gift from the sea" (12/20/14 through 01/03/15). Directions to the house were perfect and the home was in superb condition upon arrival. Lynn and Alan take great pride in providing everything you'll need for a relaxing vacation. The house is located at the end of a dead end street so no through traffic to bother you and the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. All of the amenities were is good working order and each had an instruction note on how to operate it. We cooked in quite a bit and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware to prepare any meal we wanted. The property is right on a deep water canal which we thought we'd use if we rented a boat but we went out with captain Billy (ask Lynn and Alan for contact info) and he put so may fish in our cooler that we ate seafood like kings and queens the entire time we were there. Captain Billy's rates were actually cheaper that renting a boat, buying licenses, bait, chum etc. and then still not knowing where to go. We enjoyed our time and would definitely consider "a gift from the sea" for any future Kew West vacations and highly recommend this gem to anyone who's looking for a superb home in a great location."

  • Beautiful, Clean, Convenient!

    "We just returned from our third year at this home and we never have to find another place! This home is beautiful inside and out! They furnish everything which makes packing such a blessing! This house is stocked! Leave your beach towels at home , they've got them, iron, air mattress, plenty of sheets and blankets, hair dryer in each bathroom, brand new washer & Dryer, dish washer, dishes, pillows! We love the downstairs suite, it's perfect to put the older kids and leave the upstairs for a more quiet environment. There is a downstairs storage room with a deep freezer and extra refrigerator. If you're coming to the keys with your husband this will make his eyes light up, as that's a huge convenience! The owners are great. They are very accommodating too. We have been going to the keys for over ten years as a family and the last three have been the best of those! Thanks for everything Gary & Jenny. You guys have done a great job with the place. PS - The neighborhood key deer are an added bonus for entertainment!"

  • Perfect

    "Our family met on Big Pine Key for Christmas. This was the perfect house to rendezvous. The canal was perfect for swimming. We did not rent a boat but the dock and deep canal would make a boat docking easy. The neighbors were helpful. The owners were very quick to respond when the AC malfunctioned. There were plenty of towels and sheets. The kitchen is fully stocked: we always found what we needed for cooking. The neighborhood is great. Because we stayed over Christmas we were treated to the buggy parade. We would definitely rent this house again. The screened-in porch overlooking the canal was a dream: without it, the no-see-ums would have driven us indoors for the duration."

  • One Month is not Enough

    "December 2015 One month is not enough...we come down to the Keys every year for a month...but after a month at Casa Jose...we decided one month was not enough. Next year we will be staying for two months. It is a fabulous place ...palms outside your living room window..the sound is so relaxing...a hot cup of coffee on the porch...nope...it doesn't get any better. The pool is beautiful and inviting after a day on the water fishing...and the fishing...well after 3 weeks we had to make a run home to unload our freezer...and pick up our father in law for Christmas. The step down sea wall makes boat access a breeze...which is a huge plus. Now the inside...don't get me started..the kitchen is well equipped and makes cooking easy. The over sized washer and dryer...well no excuse for dirty cloths...love it. The home has quality comfortable furniture throughout. Another plus Owners/John and Lily are just a phone call away and very helpful. Definitely be back...hopefully this will be our home a way from home for years to come...it's amazing!!!!!"
