"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."

"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!"

"This is our 3rd 2 week May stay at ISLAND TRADER..the views are still amazing!!
The photo's are very accurate..there have been some updates..flat screen TV's in all bedrooms, new a/c unit, new furniture, new linens. All in all this is a wonderful place.
The home is very functional..kitchen is well stocked..mattresses are comfortable..a/c is cold. The major plus is the outdoor space..great pool, well lit Tiki-hut, b'que, solid table and chairs and loungers and THE VIEW!! This is what the Florida keys is all about.................
If you want to relax and feel like you are on your own private island..this is the vacation home for you..
Close to Vaca Cut to access the ocean or gulf, paddleboard or kayak directly from your own dock, fish from the dock, snorkle..great area to explore...
You are close to all stores...Publix,Winn-Dixie,Walgreen's with liquor store,K-Mart,Home Depot ..great fish markets and Sweet Savannah's for the best bakery items and key lime pie.
Jackie is a delight to work with for reservations and Bill is a phone call away for any house issues..only had to call him once for a question and he is a super nice guy. We love his house so much ...we booked for a month in 2016....really looking forward to that vacation!!
Stay here and you will return for a wonderful relaxing vacation.........................."
