  • Perfect Paradise Vacation Home.

    "What a wonderful "home away from home" for my family and parents. The home is warm and cozy and private. My kids LOVED the pool and the benefit of the kayak as well as the gulf to swim and play in. Fishing off the dock and patio was also a blast. The owners were very welcoming to us and even offered to allow our children to come swim in the heated pool that is up the street at their hotel. We loved having coffee on the veranda every morning. We will definately be trying to rent this home for next years spring break."

  • 6/7/14 - 6/14/14 Stay

    "The rental was a great place to stay and accommodated our large party comfortably. The master bathroom tub needed to be cleaned a little better and the shower really needs a light fixture installed. The gate at the front by the pool needs some adjustment and has a loose railing. Everything else with this rental was great and we enjoyed our stay."

  • LOVELY, CHARMING with a RETREAT FEEL

    "Gerry's Florida House is the perfect place to go to get away from it all! It is located in a quiet neighborhood on Little Grassy Key. Once on the property you feel like you are at your own private retreat surrounded by lush landscaping, a beautiful pool and spa. Sitting on the lovely screened porch you look out on the Gulf as you listen to the waterfall affect of the spill over spa, you feel like you have found paradise! This time of year the sunsets were beautiful offering reflecting colors of the rainbow on the ripples of the water. The pool and spa were enjoyed daily, being clean and well maintained. Kayaks, bikes and fishing equipment are available for your use as advertised. Walk 100 feet out to the dock especially at night to enjoy star gazing or look at the fish swim around by the spot light in the water. The home offers comfortable bedding and furnishings, a kitchen with all the pieces of equipment one needs to cook a gourmet meal to enjoy. However, if you prefer to go out to eat there are plenty of wonderful restaurants fairly close by to enjoy delightful meals with a water view. Hide Away Cafe was a fabulous find just 1 mile from the home where we enjoyed casual yet elegant dining. Keys Fishery is a great place to enjoy the local "flavor" of the area, offering a sunset celebration each night. Sunset Grill by the Seven Mile Bridge was great also. We also enjoyed a wonderful sunset catamaran sail, (Sailing Catamaran "Sirius" Ocean Sailing, Inc). Include a day trip to Key West while there and you won't be sorry. Be sure to also visit some of the local beaches, Sombrero Beach being a great one offering a wonderful sandy beach, clear shallow water, great if you have little ones, also offering a wonderful playground, clean restrooms and outside showers. Vacation at Gerry's Florida House and you won't be sorry. Thank you to Gerry and Ellis for making your home available for all to enjoy. You are the BEST!"

  • Our new "go to" in Duck Key

    "Everything worked out exactly as we planned it, excluding the weather. (too windy for our offshore fishing) We were really close to our friends that were staying at Hawks Cay marina. Maggie was the best! She was so easy to work with. The rental transaction was seamless. Her condo was clean, decorated in "Keys -ey" style, equipped with everything you could possibly think of. The view off the balcony provided gorgeous sunrises and all the activity going on at the marina. We had a wonderful time. It almost felt like it was ours! We will most definitely stay at Maggie's condo again. Thank you for sharing your little slice of paradise with us :))"
