"We went to Key West for a milestone birthday for my mom. Five of us flying in from different parts of the country for a relaxing weekend away. The boat was beautiful. Mark was an awesome captain and took care of everything we needed. We decided to add on to our champagne sunset cruise with an extra two hours for snorkeling and Mark had everything we needed for the trip. He gave great advice of places to eat and visit while we were there. The boat was comfortable and large enough for three couples. I can't wait to go back again."

"We stayed at this home and loved it. My husband and myself 2 brothers and there wives and a friend of mine all came down from Georgia. Getting all these people to agree on anything is hard but we all loved it. Great home, nice heated pool, nice beach, nice area to dock the rental boat. This is a great location. Beautiful sunsets, clean canals, loved everything. Even my husband said he loved the storage area with the nice ice maker for all the fishing we did. Fishing reefs so close and a nice bay to put out my crab traps. The owners are heat to work with. Miss it already and I'm just driving home."

"My husband and I came in September for a week & really enjoyed our time here. It was my husbands first time staying in the keys so I was excited to have him experience all the great memories I had. This house was perfect for our needs. Right on the canal, straight into the Atlantic and the pool was PERFECT for a nice cool down & rinse off after being on the boat all day. There wasn't one thing we needed that wasn't at the house. It was convenient to everything we needed as far as grocery stores, marine stores and restaurants. You must try The Stuffed Pig for breakfast, delicious! The only downfall was the canal is very confusing to navigate the first time, check and double check again on where to enter into. It is kind of hidden. The fish cleaning table could use a light over it on those late nights coming in from reeling in big grouper & snapper. But it wasn't anything a flashlight & lantern couldn't fix. The house is also convenient to Sombrero Reef which was awesome to snorkel at. All in all, it was one of the best weeks we've had. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home! We can't wait to get back."

"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!"
