"Perfect house! Gorgeous inside and out with everything we needed and more. Pool, hot tub and dock were awesome as was all the furniture and seating areas. Daily sightings of three green iguanas on patios and lots of unique sea life right off private dock. Kayaks were a huge bonus! Owner was easy to deal with and we’re glad we found this rental. Can’t say enough about how impressive our stay was there. Highly recommended!"

"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!"

"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."

"Accomadations could not have been better, the view of the ocean spectacular. Local shop and restaurants superb. Sea food lovers dream come true. Only glitz beaches piled high with rotting sea weed and kelp. No effort of the community to clean it up, the smell was nausiating."
