"excellent vacation site, great accommodations. Dock was perfect for our 20 footer and easy access to the Gulf and Atlantic. Stairs were a bit much especially on refills but probably gave me much needed exercise. Thanks Jim for a wonderful vacation."

"I spent a glorious week at White Sands and will be returning for more. I've been staying at properties on Morton Street for about 15 years now. White Sands is the best of all. I wanted for nothing - it's got it all. Wonderful dock that treats you to wildlife at every turn, relaxing beach right out your back door, a fantastic pool just as private as could be, porch views all around the home, a wonderfully stocked kitchen with all the best appliances. Just writing about it makes me want to go back right now!
Nearby are great places - try Curry Hammock park for kayaking and you'll be lucky to see some bonnet head sharks. Marathon has a fun movie theater with tables and chairs instead of rows of seats, so you can enjoy dinner while you watch a movie. Bahia Honda State Park is not to be missed. Go to Sandspur Beach and you will find a beach right out of the Caribbean. The snorkeling off the beach is fantastic and if you love shells, it's the place to find them. Key West is always fun - the Hemingway House, Audubon House and even the Trolley Tour is fun. The Tropic Cinema is an award winning art house theater and a great place for a rainy day.
But, with all that said, you don't really need to leave White Sands at all to have an unforgettable vacation. The home is perfect. Enjoy!"

"There were 12 of us staying at this property and it worked out perfect! Beautiful view, beautiful house (minus the stairs if you sleep on the top floor) lol.. Everyone had a wonderful time. I can't say enough about the customer service Shawn had, he is amazing. Centrally located for the rest of the islands! The fish off the dock were always beautiful to look at and we even caught and released a few. If you rented a boat to dock there you MUST be an experienced boater. We had 2 USGA licensed captains with us thank goodness. The current rips through Vaca Cut and it can get ugly. Overall it was a very memorable 1st trip to the keys!! We will never forget it!! Highly Reccomend this place!!!!"

"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."
