"We've been coming to the Keys for a long time now and I can honestly say, this is the best one! This house was clean and very very comfortable for our monthly stay. The kitchen is a nice size and I love the gas stove. We had plenty of room to sit and relax after spending a lot of the day on the water. The bedrooms were perfect, all of them have plenty of room and they all have TV's. The master is the best, it's spacious and on the third floor, with a large master bath and closet. We really enjoyed our special area, we felt like we were alone, when we went to bed. We even had our own balcony!
My husband is the fisherman, so it's important for him to be right on the ocean. He didn't have to bring his cutting board, there's one right there on the boat dock and under the shade, so cutting all the fish he caught was nice. We liked the wide boat dock because we all could sit out and enjoy the ocean view and the beautiful sunsets.
I enjoyed the pool because it's not all in the hot sun, part of the pool is in the shade for people like me that fry. :-) We liked having a table and chairs near the pool too, so we could enjoy our family and friends. We also had plenty of lounge chairs for the girls to layout, that's a must for them. I also want to mention about the driveway. We usually have a problem finding room for the boat trailer and 2 trucks, but we had plenty of room, which made it a lot easier for us. Love that!
Last but not least... Rich, the property manager is so nice and helpful from the time of renting to the moment we had to leave. And Greg, I'm thinking he's the assistant manager. He made our stay so much nicer, from coming over late at night when I had a problem with a appliance, to helping my husband find a place to put his boat when the weather got bad. Thank you Rich and Greg, you are awesome! Thank you for a great vacation!"

Very nice place for the price would like to have rated as 4.5 stars
"My wife and I booked a full week for her birthday and were lucky enough to find that there was a discount at the time so the house was a bargain. We had originally looked at much bigger places (that would have cost twice as much) with the hopes that two other couples would be coming, but those plans fell through and a private getaway was what we really needed so this was perfect. Since Jan's place is oceanfront and a 2 bedroom 2 bath we had extra room that also over looked the water if we had needed it. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice with lots of closet and drawer space, good water pressure, and no problems with anything. Overall the house is nice and there is everything you could need already there (except food of course) the bed is very comfortable, the kitchen and washer dryer were like new and made the trip like being at home. The views are wonderful and the location is a short drive to nice restaurants and Key West. The one limitation that Jan did clarify for me before we booked was the low head clearance to launch a boat from the "on property" boat ramp (.25 star deduction). Due to the fact that our boat is a 25 foot ocean boat with a hard top and a 9ft beam it was too tall and almost to wide to fit under the house so we used a ramp about 3 miles away that only cost $10 for in/out service. The empty trailer's guide posts just made it between the concrete stilts and we were able to park it out of the way under the house. I would love to come down again and explore the outer reefs more as the 45ft to 80ft drop off was a beautiful mini wall that we only found on our last dive day before the weather got bad. There are friendly neighbors, a Winn Dixie on Big Pine, with prices the same as in Orlando, about 10 minutes away, fresh seafood markets, marine flea markets, seafood festivals, and nice sunrise and sunset views. January weather is cool & breezy, the drive time out to the outer reef is very short once you get around to the channel, and you are about 6 miles north of Looe Key when you hit the open water past the last set of channel markers. The price for gas or diesel in Marathon was cheaper than anywhere in South Florida so fill up as you are passing through on the way down. During our week there was road construction to widen US1 underway, the road was never blocked but traffic was diverted a few times and the power blinked off for a few minutes several times (should be completed as of now but .25 star deduction)."

"We stayed at Windswept with our Westie Maggie for two weeks. We fished, we swam, we snorkle nearly every day. Floating on the huge water matt was so comfortable, you can drift off away forever. Key deer, iguana, stingrays, osprey and many types of sea birds were there Dailey.. We had a Egret that would come by every day for a handout out fish. Amy was super with help when we needed a hand, she was prompt an helpful. Can't wait to return next year. MK"

"This was just the place my wife & I were looking for. This cottage is affordable tastefully decorated, and quite. Yes, it could use some updating, but its minor & easily overlooked. The Pro's definitely outweigh the cons with this property. Where do you find a stand alone cottage in the lower keys? Marianne is helpful & trustworthy. We would definitely stay here again!"
