Everything you need in a great location with wonderful owners.
Great Location! Enjoying my stay so much that I’m extending it another month. Perfect relaxing retreat with all the comforts of home. Especially love mornings on the kayak and evenings on the deck. Looking forward to enjoying the jacuzzi now that the weather is cooler. The owners have been fantastic providing everything promised with prompt communication.
A sweet spot in the Keys!
We found our family "sweet spot". We loved EVERYTHING about this place. The home itself was so cozy and clean, and we had every appliance we needed in the kitchen to prepare our meals. (WinnDixie was only 4 min down the road). We ate almost every meal on the deck/Tiki hut and enjoyed the quiet of the neighborhood (trash days must be on the weekend bc the garbage trucks did come early in the morning). The beds were comfortable and each room had its own AC unit. We had the option to borrow their kayak and/or canoe, but We brought our own 21 ft deck boat (which did make it through the VERY shallow and VERY tight opening of the canal) but then we were able to joy ride down the waterway into JohnPennecamp State Park each day. The owners were so nice and accommodating to our different needs and were genuinely concerned about our comfort and stay, It was hands down the MOST relaxing, enjoyable weekend my family has had in a long time. We can't thank you enough for sharing your perfect little vacation home with us!
We were the first to stay at Ocean Retreat. The owners Sarahi and Hiran could not have been more accommodating. They both had worked hard for seven months to turn their home into a welcoming vacation escape.
The brand new Tiki hut provided welcome relief from the sun and a great place to play dominoes or just sit and enjoy the view. Brand new deck, appliances, gas grill…and everywhere designer touches and artwork made for a homey atmosphere. Access to the bay is just a short paddle down the canal on the canoe or small kayak provided.
After firing up the charcoal bbq one day, Hiran showed up to deliver a gas one AND a smoker…just in case. We had a problem with the dryer on week one, called to let them know- and three hours later they showed up with A BRAND NEW ONE.
Key Largo seemed to escape the brunt of the storm last fall, and there are a myriad of restaurants and bars to explore. (NOTE: The Keys is a community built around water activity - happy hours start at 4, music ends at 9 or 10 save for a couple places. Plan on early evenings. Jimmy Johnson's Sports bar just down the road closes even when the game you're watching is at halftime!)
Kitchen is fully stocked, the canal waterfront is quiet save for some weekend renters occasionally sharing their music. There is a small dock overlooking a salt water bayou across the street perfect for a cocktail and watching the fish and birds (yes, and a crocodile or two). Managed to catch my share of sea trout, mangrove snapper and cuda from the canoe.
Two large futons in living room, plus a pull-out under the bed in the spare room mean plenty of room for guests. Bathroom shower has nice pressure even if the head is a bit low for my 6'3" frame.
Bring your fishing rods, snorkel gear (Pennecamp Park is just a couple miles away)
and sun lotion. Also bug spray - we had few mosquitoes (had been dry) but the no-see-ums are out for a couple hours early evenings.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Having a boat would have been a big plus…but our two months were a delight.
Thank you Bob and Lisa! Happy to hear you enjoyed our little piece of paradise. You guys were awesome! We added a pergola to provide more shade, more sitting options and a huge counter, also a cleaning fishing table with a sink. We will continue to improve, your satisfaction is our goal. Hope to see you again! 🐠🐟⛵⚓
