My husband and I truly enjoyed our relaxing stay for my 50th birthday. Great for a couples get away!
I would definitely say there were way more pros then cons to the property. Kristen was great with communication and helped with any questions. The patio up and down were perfect. The pool was clean ( with an occasional crab in the pool but was easily put back in the canal) . We loved playing pool at the downstairs pool table! The fridge downstairs outside by the bar downstairs was great to keep beverages in so you didn’t have to go up and down the stairs. The small deep freezer was great too to keep extra ice in. We could not for the life of us find the kayak paddles but maybe plan ahead and ask to see where they might be. We just decided to explore Sombrero Beach at the end of the road instead. So so conveniently located close to Publix,Walgreens and the Publix liquor store. Also loved being so close to Key West and super close to the 7 mile bridge. We grilled on the grill provided a couple of nights which was perfect. We enjoyed star gazing as well at night off the balcony.
So the cons we found were no plug for the master bath drain, the beds were too soft for our liking and our backs were sore at the end of the week. Toilet flushing pressure was low in both bathrooms. The house would benefit having the living room furniture cleaned or replaced soon. Lastly cleaning up the front lot removing the storage trailer as well as sea weed removal by the boat ramp of the seaweed that has been raked up over the months. All of the cons are easy fixes. Overall we would stay there again! Very relaxing indeed!
Great location,clean,pool and great view
We enjoyed our stay,the location is great, having the pool was defiantly an added bonus,there was times that the smell from canal was overwhelming, but we didn’t mind since we were out most of the day, if you are vacationing and have a boat this place would be ideal, boat ramp next door house has a dock. This was a working vacation for us , the house was close to were we were working so it was nice to come home each night jump in pool and chill, We spent a lot of time down the road at Sombrero Beach. It is coming along there was a wedding at the beach one night, of course we visited our favorite restaurants. Key Fisheries and Triton. Excellant food . I wish we had more time, I will recommend to family and friends, The house could use an upgrade on the grill,
Would definitely recommend this home for your stay in the Keys!!! Beautiful home and location was perfect for us! We spent a lot of time outdoors enjoying the outdoor patio, pool and dock area. At times the canal was full of seagrass and the marsh odor was strong but with the changing of the tides the grass and odor came and went. But this is the island life and part of the package! Sombrero Beach is just a few blocks away and is a very beautiful beach and pet friendly. I do recommend bug spray for the no see ums! We will definitely stay here again!
Nice house with shallow canal
When I arrived at this house, my overall impression was that it was a nice place but there was so much seaweed in the canal and it had foul odor. The canal was also very shallow. It was very disappointing as I was trying to escape the stinking red tide in Sarasota county. We base our vacations around our boat and like to be able to come in and out from dock multiple times in a day.
We called Kristen and expressed our concerns and she said she would try to find us another place. Within an hour she called with a place to check out. It was right around the corner but on another canal. It was exactly what we were looking for. We were scheduled for 8 nights and actually paid for one more. Kristen is awesome and will do anything she can to make your vacation the very best!!!
Thank you Kristen. We will contact you for our next vacation
Thank you for the compliments. This property does have periods of seaweed build up. As many of the Florida Keys Properties from time to time. The seaweed did not last long as it was gone the next day, but with the red tide issue that these people expressed was their number one reason to come to the Keys and to avoid, I wasn't going to have them disappointed in any way! Glad you had a great time!
Great Place !!
Perfect location for shopping . Perfect view of the deck to the Ocean . Great set up !! Highly recommend this house . !!
Perfect Location for our family vacation!
We were so close to the beach and saw the fireworks and the 4th of July parade came right in front of the house. Pictures don't do this justice. A beautiful place to stay . We will return.
Location is within walking distance to the beach.
