"My family and I had the best time at this location! The owners were very professional and quick to respond. Everything at this home was accommodating. The home was in perfect condition and the location is the best! I will be returning to this property in the future."

"This duplex is very clean and spacious with a great balcony. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was right there at the house. Washer and Dryer access was very nice and sure helped on a week and half long trip. Dock was clean but quite a long idle out to ocean. Kids didn't mind though as there are some cool places to see along the way. Good location - close to stores and restaurants. Owner and management company very nice to deal with."

"We just got back from spending an awesome week at this house. The house is located in a convenient location in the middle of the key. You are a close boat ride to both the 7 mile bridge and Vaca cut which made getting to the gulf very quick. The house itself is very nice. The bedrooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable, the kitchen, living room, and outdoor porch areas are huge. One night during our stay we had 3 other couples over for a dinner party and were quite comfortable. The pool is very clean and the hot tub is large and seems brand new. There are bikes, kayaks, rafts, and countless other toys and water supplies. A freezer for bait and ice is right by the long seawall. We fit 3 boats along the seawall one day. Overall I highly recommend this house for your next getaway.
I am going to point out a few recommendations to the owner. This is not meant to dissuade any renters, because this house is great, just a few suggestions. For the price we paid, there are a few things that could be approved in my opinion. The wifi has very poor signal. The kitchen, while decently equipped, could really use some nicer cookware. I completely understand that it must be hard with renters overusing the cookware, but I really like to cook and had expected for a house at this price we would have a little better tools. The ice machine in the fridge doesn't make enough ice for a family of 3 (and we had 7 people). This isn't a big deal - just expect to stock the freezer drawer with ice for drinks. The living room has 4 fans which was WONDERFUL - but a few on the porch in place of the tiny lights would be nice.
Thank you for a wonderful family 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!"
