"The pictures do not do this house justice. Very spacious and well equipped. We especially enjoyed fishing from the dock. Mangrove snappers are abundant (with much practice and advice from the locals, we figured out how to catch them). We also caught pin fish, and two small nurse sharks. The sunsets were amazing, especially from the kayaks. Two dolphins paid us a short visit one morning. We saw a large tarpon and barracuda feeding in the lagoon. The house was spotless and everything in working order when we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and hope to come back soon."

"You will not find a better home than the"Million Dollar Baby". This home offers everything you could ask for and more. Take in the breath-taking views of the open Atlantic from the tile patio, the pool, or the master suite . Inside this home offers amenities galore and outside everything you need for relaxation and family fun. Mangrove Snapper are plentiful right off the bulkhead for a wonderful fishing experience. My grandchildren had a blast. We rented Kayaks, did some snorkeling and never "had" to leave the house. We made a visit to Key West for a little shopping but couldn't get back soon enough to enjoy ourselves poolside. The pool is amazing and the kids loved the Manatee that visited us. We also had a large Iguana that visited as well. The home is beautiful but I have to say we didn't spend much time inside. My daughter is an artist and I just knew she would spend her time painting but that was not the case at all. We just took it all in and relaxed. I'm sure she'll be painting from memory because the views will be hard to forget. Thank you Kate for sharing your beautiful home with us."

"The condo suited our needs very well. The layout is great as the living area is very open and has a wonderful full wall of glass to see the palm trees swaying in the breeze next to the ocean. The master bedroom provides the feel of retreating for the evening as the décor differs from then living area plus the master bath is well done. The kayak and bikes are a plus as we did not have the added expense nor did we have to be tied down to a specific day for the rental. Morning coffee with fruit and bagels was great every day on the patio. The view is so good that we never had the impulse to turn the TV on. This is a good location to unwind.
I would recommend eating at Sparky’s on Sadowski (5 minutes away) as the food is good and the local marina atmosphere is great. Savanah’s Sweets (5-10 minutes away) is a great place to get desert as it is a cute place with good eats and I strongly suggest the Pina Colada sundae (non-alcoholic). Spirit snorkeling is a good outfit for going to Sombrero reef. Fishing is good at Sombrero beach and snorkeling has a lot of fish, but the water clarity is not as good as going to Sombrero reef (this is true of all beach access snorkeling).
Todd and Jamie are professional, courteous and attentive people. We use VRBO all the time for our vacations and they have been the best as per the aforementioned and the property being as presented in the listing.
Thanks Todd & Jamie for helping us have a great vacation."

"We had a group of lifelong friends get together for our 50th Birthday Year celebration week. The house was great. There was plenty of room for everyone.The set up allowed for those who wanted to stay up later and hang by the pool to do so. Those who wanted to call it a night a little earlier could also do so peacefully. The location was convenient to everything we needed both by land and water. We rented a boat and could easily get to great snorkeling, resturants(recommended by Tim), or just out to see a sunset. We were even lucky enough to have two manatees come up in the canal and hang out by the house on our last afternoon there. We also were only about an hours drive to Key West for those who chose to go there for a day. Overall the "Goldfish Cartel" had an awesome week in a Fantastic House! We would definitely stay there again."
