This property is simply wonderful. The home is spacious and well appointed, with comfortable beds, and updated amenities. There is a full wall of sliding glass doors that open completely onto the back veranda, leading to the sandy back garden and your own private dock with boat ramp. (We brought our wave runners.) A juvenile manatee swims into the bay past your dock every morning....wow, quite a site to seee. I must admit that we were somewhat skeptical when the directions had us turning off the main Hwy and heading down a gravel road behind the local paint store to get to the house. But our concerns were quickly forgotten - once you're at the house, you are in your own little paradise. It's completely quiet and serene, yet you're close to everything - stores and marinas and restaurants and anything else you could want or need. We vacationed here for a week with two families - 6 adults and three children. We all fit fine however, I wouldn't recommend trying to squeeze in any more than 6 adults if you want your privacy. Up to 4 additional children can sleep in the loft area. My one complaint about this house is that I would have preferred more comfortable furniture in the living room. The ratan sofa and chair are better suited for porch lounging, in my opinion, than TV watching, and there is not enough furniture for more than 5 people to sit together in that room. Overall - the place is great - and we'll be back!
We arrived at Martha's lovely cottage home in Key Largo on Labor day 9/5/2016. We were happy to have arrived from Hollywood. Florida. Not a long drive to get to our getaway. I was very impressed my our name being posted outside. (VIP) The first thing we did is a thorough walk of the cottage and the beautiful scenery outside. The walk takes you down your private sandy walk into the most amazing view. I was so amazed we had found her place and were able to say we stayed here. We had a wonderful time and it will be an experience we will never forget. The Perez family
Rented the beach house for 4 nights with 8 people. Interior space very accommodating and plenty of space. Fully equipped and comfortable. Could use some TLC outside ( hot tub unappealing with dirty cover) and shrubbery needs some work.
Only real upgrade I'd suggest is a gas barbecue vs the old coal grill. A house like this really needs it to cook all the fish we caught ( a hose should be run to the fillet table on the dock).
But overall , a good vacation rental.
This home is truly a hidden gem! It was perfect, from the water views & beach area to the surprisingly spacious house. We fit 4 adult couples comfortably for four days. We were in town for a wedding at the Key Largo Lighthouse and were able to walk to the wedding venue as well as walk to the Holiday Inn to visit friends in town for the wedding as well. We were so happy with the accommodations, the house was well maintained, there were kayaks on property to use, linens were plentiful and Martha was very helpful when booking and was available during our stay as well. We are already looking forward to going back for another vacation!
We rented the three houses for a family wedding for a week. The 4 bedroom house is spacious and very comfortable for families. It was quiet and we had plenty of room for everyone. Our daughter's wedding of 100 was too large to hold on the property but it was almost next door so we were able to work on flowers and centerpieces there at the Alamar. My daughter and the bridesmaids got ready in the house and the photographer took amazing photos on the property of the wedding party before the ceremony. We rented a boat for fishing and docked it at the Alamar, we spent the days after the wedding kayaking, fishing, snorkeling and sitting on the dock watching amazing sunsets with family. Martha was very helpful and accommodating, we couldn't have had a better place to stay. Everyone who stayed had a great time and those who stayed in other places commented on what a beautiful place we had for the week and several are planning on bringing family back in the future to the Alamar.
This is the second time we have visited this property and we will definitely be back!This property really is the greatest location! Beautiful sand beach. Extremely well maintained spacious home and grounds with everything you need. The bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds and provide lots of privacy. Great back porch leading to the sand and garden and your own private dock with boat ramp. It's a very quiet relaxing location and is in close proximity to shopping and restaurants.
Start with just , stare out onto the open water of the bay or use one of our rowboats or kayaks. Maybe some volleyball, or take out our bikes to ride our overseas highway bike path traveling north and south. Come back, take a dip in the crystal clear walk-in beach. Now let's plan tomorrow, how about a back country fishing trip or an ocean charter boat, or a head boat for bottom boats, very inexpensive and lots of fun. Or rent a boat, maybe a dive trip to our reefs such as Pennecamp Parks, dive wrecks or caves. Maybe just a snorkel trip, or glass bottom boat trip. Now that we spent time under the sea, how about parasailing or flying an ultralight airplane or just hang out on the sand bar. Perhaps a trip to the Everglades, swamp tours, airboat rides or a walking path into the Everglades, alligators and such. Golf anyone? Did you bring your clubs? Shopping at the outlet mall or at our local shops. Take a ride on the African Queen Boat, Humphrey Bogart's.
Other Activities: Parasailing, Deep sea fishing, Back country fishing, Ultra-light flying, touring the everglades.
