I love this place...
"I've stayed at the Cottage by the Sea twice since finding it. I absolutely love this place; it is just the right size, cozy and located right on the water. It is near my favorite restaurant, The Square Grouper, away from the tourist-y Key West area, but close enough to Key West that one can pop down there for diving, dining, hanging out, whatever. It is also only about ten minutes away from Bahia Honda, which has the only decent beaches in the area. Since my last visit, WiFi was totally seamless and I never lost the connection once, which was great. The cottage, as always, was spotlessly clean, adorably furnished and felt like my own vacation home. The bed is really comfortable, too, and I slept great (usually I don't sleep well in strange beds). Another thing I noticed this time is the absence of outside noise inside the cottage. I had some hard partying neighbors across the channel this time and, once inside, I could not hear a peep, which was great! The owners, as always, are very helpful, friendly and responsive. I will be back!"

"Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation at your house in Cudjoe Key recently. We were thrilled that Key West was only about a half hour away. There are many good restaurants within minutes of the house. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking our "catch of the day" and making breakfast. We all enjoyed eating on the screened porch while looking out as boats passed by in the canal. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked. The bedrooms were spacious & comfortable. We never seemed to run out of hot water! One of the best things we found was that we were only minutes away from the open water where the fishing was fantastic. We hope to do it all again next year.

"Thank You very much, Gary & Susan, for sharing your wonderful home with us.
Such a well equipped house, that really felt like home. We had a fabulous vacation, this is the 2nd time we have been to venture out, but this was a much nicer house, with such wonderful views!
I enjoyed riding around on the bicycle.... Wish it hadn't been so windy we may have got out on the kayak!!
The amenities at the resort are great, with a lovely pool & hot tub, we also enjoyed playing ping pong & bocce, when the weather was less than perfect!! Venture out has something for everyone.
My husband loved fishing from the dock.
Some great nearby restaurants, & Key West only 20 miles away, makes it a great location.

"We were so pleased with this rental. Everything was immaculate and so thoughtfully arranged, right down to the implements in the kitchen. Sheets and towels were very comfy (LOVE the lobster sheets on the twin beds) and even the toilet paper was soft. (My 12 and 15 year old BOTH commented on that within minutes of arriving.) Lounge chairs by the canal, the dinette set on the porch, and the living room furniture were all so homey - and after 8 days on the road we were so grateful for the washer and dryer. We only stayed 4 nights but would happily stay for much longer next time."
