Spacious, comfortable and conveniently located
"We had a wonderful stay at the house from June 28 to July 28. The booking process worker well, and owners always responded quickly to our questions before arrival. On arrival, we were pleasantly surprised, the house is better than the photos on the listing, much brighter, and a new deck had just been added. The house was spacious, comfortable and well equipped, including 2 kayaks, linens, and towels. We put the kayaks to good use, paddling on the canal, which we were surprised to find to was blocked off from the ocean; but you can portage the kayaks over the little dam. The canal is clean( swimable) and full of fish, including some sizable snook and tarpon, which were great to watch with the underwater lights at night. The lack of direct ocean access proved to be a plus for us, as it made us launch our boat from the many free boat ramps available in the various keys, so we were able to explore a much wider area. We enjoyed walking through the many residential streets in the evenings to see the gorgeous sunsets and the key deers grazing everywhere. As well, we used our bicycles to see the backroads of nearby keys, and sampled the coffee and pastries all along the way.
All told, a month flew by. We had a great time, and enjoyed staying at this house. We would recommend it to others."

"We have been coming to the lower keys for five years. We love this house! This is our third time staying there and we already have a deposit on next year. If you are a regular visitor to LTK or a newcomer you will be delighted with the accommodations at this wonderful islands house. Located in a quiet, friendly neighborhood, it has everything you need and nothing you don't!! The house is immaculate and delightfully decorated. The minute you walk in you feel comfortable. This is truly a place to relax and enjoy your vacation. The house is designed to minimize your chores and maximize your valuable free time. All of the appliances are very modern and top drawer. The kitchen has every thing you need to prepare all of your favorite dishes including all of the wonderful fresh seafood available like Key West pink shrimp and stone crab or your freshly caught snapper. The bedrooms have comfortable beds and plenty of closet space. The screen porch is perfect for catching the sunset while sipping your favorite cocktail or enjoying your morning coffee.
Recreational opportunities abound. We are fisherman and we love the great dock accommodations and the quick access to the outside. Also the free boat ramp is just a quick couple of turns down the canal so launching when we first arrive is a breeze. We fish every day we can. A bait freezer is a huge plus as we can have our ice and chum and bait ready to go. We love the filet station and wash down facilities. When the wind blows too hard to fish, we enjoy the nearby hiking in the Key Deer Preserve or on Sugarloaf on the old SR 4A. Key West and Marathon are just 25 miles away and we enjoy visiting there. If you like to bicycle you can safely peddle around the quiet neighborhood. Or if you want a more vigorous workout you can take a ride down Middle Torch Road to Dorn Road. We also love the birding, especially in the nearby lagoon.
There are a number of great restaurants locally. We especially enjoy the one that is within an easy walk to the house.
The owner is great. He is very attentive to any concerns and quick to respond. He has always refunded our security deposit promptly. He also has a wealth of fishing information!!!"

"I had a wonderful week of relaxation in a quiet, peaceful location. The house was supplied with everything we needed. My grandchildren fished and swam in the canal and will have wonderful memories of a great vacation. Would definitely rent this place again. Very clean and modern."

"This was our second visit to Ocean Breeze Cottage. The location, waterfront view, morning sunrises and wildlife are all reasons for a return visit. Add to these a beautifully decorated cottage, well equipped kitchen and many amenities provided by the owners for their guests' comfort and entertainment. Time spent here is relaxing, peaceful and fun. In a word, paradise."
