With your rental you will recieve UNLIMITED ENTRY to BAHIA HONDA BEACH PARK and FORT ZACHARY TAYLOR PARK. Both of these fantastic attractions draw people from all over the world.

We now offer GOLF CART rentals to our guest. The 2 seater rents for $25 a day and the 4 seater rents for $35 a day. Book your rental early because we also rent to others. We have a limited supply of golf carts. Our resort is large and its nice to have a golf cart to explore!

Please note that there is a $50 entry fee for our gated community that you will have to pay at the front gate. This fee covers your whole stay at our resort. This gives you FULL access to the marina, pool, tennis courts, billiards, playground, jacuzzi and more.


Now about our wonderful home...
Imagine a tropical bungalow with cathedral ceilings, beautiful designer touches, spacious and sparkling clean. As you enter you will love the open feeling of the great room with comfortable dining for six, fully-equipped kitchen with center island, lovely living room with Tommy Bahama couch and love seat, and desk area, and a nice 40 inch HD flat screen TV with cable! The walls are adorned with fantastic local art. And, of course, you have central air. Floors are ceramic tile.Our vacation home has just been completely repainted on the interior with fun tropical color, plus we added new comforters,towels, plates, artwork,and even more. Our home is sparkling clean because it's our vacation home, too. New central AC installed to keep you cool!

The master bedroom has a queen bed adorned with nice bed linen and a new mattress. Tommy Bahama Quilt on the bed gives a tropical feel. Lay in the big comfortable bed and watch the flat screen TV. You will also admire the beautiful artwork. There is a nice mirrored double closet in the master bedroom. PLUS you have an attached full-size master bathroom with tub/shower combination, vanity sink, toilet, and linen closet. And do not forget the towels and wash clothes we provide! We also supply beach towels.

The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a small TV/DVD combo so you can watch movies or play music CDs. Hook ups for Video Games keep kids happy! There is also a pack and play for the little one in your family. This bedroom boasts its own full-size bathroom with a shower, toilet, and sink. Off this bathroom is the stack washer and dryer.

Our manufactured home is located in Cudjoe Key,Florida - and we have SO many amenities. Lighted tennis courts, Olympic-sized heated pool, kiddie pool, spa jacuzzi,ping pong, bocce ball courts, shuffleboard courts, golf putting area, basketball, children's playground, pool table, dart room, MARINA complete with gas and store, ATM, boat trailer parking onsite, open water picnic areas, tiki hut, lending library, post office - and MORE - ALL IN A GATED COMMUNITY where you can feel safe and secure.

And you will enjoy all of the friendly people who live and visit here. During the Winter months, there are lot of fun activities offered like Computer classes, craft and art classes, musical plays put on by the Actors Guild, plus so much more. Attend Sunday church on the premises too.

We have a double kayak you can use as many times as you like...again - no charge.

Bring your boat - no charge for putting in at our Venture Out Marina. Our resort's marina has some of the lowest gas prices in the lower Keys for boaters. (Boat and trailer parking is a daily charge by the park.)This unit is not on the water, but you can put your boat in at our resort marina, and pull it out each day. It is also a fabulous spot for KAYAKS. You can swim or fish from our open water areas. And we have a great big TIKI HUT on the open water where picnicking is perfect!

KEY WEST is a twenty five minute drive down US One. Experience the fabulous SUNSET CELEBRATION every night at Mallory Square. Take a sail to the Dry TOrtugas. And DANCE the night away at Hog's Breath or Sloppy Joe's. Visit the Southernmost House and all of its historical splendor. Or walk the trail of Hemingway - down famous Duval Street. So much to do - right down the road.

Marathon offers good seafood restaurants...one of our favorites is The Keys Fisheries. Casual dining over looking their marina. Seafood is always fresh there! Be sure to try their lobster bisque. Marathon also has 'The Turtle Hospital', a non-profit organization dedicated to helping sea turtles. It's an educational outing your kids will enjoy, plus your admission fee helps their mission. Visit the Aquarium Encounters in Marathon. It's new to the area and highly rated. The Dolphin Research Center is just a little North of Marathon but worth the drive. You can interact with Dolphins!

But do not think you HAVE to go anywhere - lay by the HUGE POOL right on the OPEN WATER and watch the elegant seagulls float overhead as the palms sway. Sun yourself and read a good book and simply relax! Plunge into the BIG JACUZZI and soak your troubles away. Or spend some time with someone you love - holding hands and watching the herons fishing along the waterside! And you do not even have to get in your car to do any of these! Our resort is a destination in it's self!

Within five minutes we have a great restaurant - The Square Grouper is our favorite. The Marina Store - walking distance right in our gated community - stocks necessities, such as soft drinks, and BEER and WINE, very convenient!

At the desk area, there is a bullentin board with grocery store and pharmacy loyality cards. We just added a 'Vacation Answer Book' to answer your questions about our vacation home and the surrounding area.


We take great pride in offering our home for your vacation. You will not find a cleaner rental in the area. We know you will have a marvelous time here in the gorgeous FLORIDA KEYS!

THIS IS A NO SMOKING HOUSE. IF YOU SMOKE INSIDE OR THROW YOUR CIGARETTE BUTTS OUTSIDE YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT WILL BE WITHHELD. WE ARE VERY SERIOUS ABOUT THIS RULE!!!!! Sorry but NO PETS!

Driving Distance:3 Hours from Miami, and 31/2 Hours from FT.Lauderdale. 25 Minutes from Key West. The drive down US 1 is a journey that everyone should experience. It sets the tone for the whole trip! Rent a convertible, put the top down and cruise down this historic and scenic Byway. You will talk about this drive for a long time to come!
