This place, and the people who owned it, made our vacation relaxing and enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

All around a very good value. We stayed in the Tiki Palm Cottage, which was beautiful, clean and well-appointed. It had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation, and truly felt like home when we were out and about all day. More importantly, Owners Bonnie and Bill, were extraordinary hosts -- available, but not hovering, warm and welcoming -- like visiting with friends we've known for years. We snorkeled and kayaked right from the property and saw lots of fish, and when we were "home" for sunsets, we watched from the beach -- perfect!

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation primarily due to this beautiful property. The owner's Bonnie & Bill could not have been nicer. When it was time for us to leave we felt like we were leaving good friends.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Tiki Palm cottage. The property is lovely, very nicely landscaped with private beach and easy access to the water. Perfect place to watch the sun set. Good snorkeling too! We saw a variety of fish, rays, and even a manatee! The kayaks, floats, etc. were really nice to have available to enjoy the bay.

It's in a central location with lots of great restaurants within a short drive. We enjoyed an evening walk to the Key Lime Pie Factory for a treat!

The cottage itself is spacious, clean, and comfortable. Nicely decorated -- it felt like home. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook when you want to eat in. Nice to have a grill available too.

The owners Bill & Bonnie are very pleasant and friendly. As others have said, present, but not hovering.

Perfect spot for a family vacation.

We all had a really good time. We would definitely go back again.

  • 4 of 5

The property is very private with beautiful trees and flowering plants. There is plenty of room on their two docks to take your boat. The cottage was well decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with anything you could need. If you wanted to cook or there are several restaurants in the area.

Bonnie and Bill are very helpful and thoughtful. (We stayed at Bay Breeze Motel when they had it, so I was very happy to find them again). They have a notebook set up with all kinds of useful information. Such as copies of menus, their favorite restaurants, addresses to local attractions and pamphlets. If there is a problem or your have a question they are on the property or just a phone call away.

Thank you Bonnie, Bill and Will for sharing your piece of paradise with us and letting us follow you out to go fishing. We look forward to coming back in the years to come.

Thank you,

Joy, Fred, David, Andrew and Taylor

Awesome vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful property!! We had a great time..... Bonnie and Bill are terrific hosts. Fishing was excellent. You can't beat the tranquility of being bayside mixed with the convenience of being such a short distance from open water. We can't wait for next year to visit again!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was spacious, very clean and had everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the sunset every night and the sun and ocean everyday. It is in a very convenient place to activities and restaurants and secluded all at the same time. Bonnie and Bill, thanks for welcoming us and sharing your paradise.
