Family Reunion Fun

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home on Cudjoe Key before hurricane Irma struck, and we decided to stay even after the hurricane damaged the Keys. We were amazed at the wonderful condition of the property. The yard and dock were all repaired and the pool and house were in mint condition. The house was as richly furnished as the beautiful web pictures. The master suite is quite large.

We rented for 6 nights and had a party of 7 in the spacious home that can easily accommodate 12-14. A tremendous plus was having many different gathering areas indoors and out to give everyone relaxation space. We loved the dock, pool, hot tub and made good use of the kayaks and Foosball table. The kitchen was generously supplied for any type of cooking and the huge dining room table was a work of art. We rented bikes in Big Pine Key and enjoyed meals at Mangrove Mamas and the No Name Bar. The property manager was most accommodating, gracious, and eager to answer our questions.

Lacking general upkeep. Several examples of deferred maintenance.

  • 1 of 5

Our likelihood of returning to “Casa Aqua” is low due to several examples of disrepair, deferred maintenance, and general lack of upkeep which caused this past visit to be unsatisfactory in light of the high cost to rent this house. I would have never rented this property had I known the Jacuzzi was not in working order. The Jacuzzi is a primary vacation draw for my son and his friends. Contacted agent via text with no response.

Paradise Found!!!

  • 5 of 5

You have found it! Look no more. This is our Florida Keys Favorite! I don't ever care to stay in any other home. We loved yours so much!! Thank You!! Just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time our family had there. Everything was truly a perfect experience, from reservation to departure. Debra was so wonderful to work with. Thank you, Debra, for the fresh flowers and the key lime pie upon arrival. That special touch meant alot to our family. It was so nice to finally meet you.

This location is a perfect distance to Key West. It is just close enough to Key West, but without all the congestion. Also, the home is secluded enough not to hear so much road noise from Highway 1.

Also, It was such a blessing to be able to take our furry family with us. That really made our vacation complete. This was one of the biggest reason that we initially chose your home over the others. It was so nice to find a place that was so pet friendly and just like home. Thank You for allowing us to bring them!

This was one of the cleanest and best place that we have ever stayed in. Your place was just spotless, and I was so impressed. The stocked kitchen was super, and the dining room table is an amazing piece of art. Beautiful! The bedrooms were all comfortable. Thanks for having queen/king beds in the guest rooms. Our most favorite spots were the pool and the dock. The pool and hot tub were awesome. We also appreciate the use of your kayaks. We took daily adventures in the mangroves to see what treasures we may find.

If you don't bring your own boat, we would definitely recommend renting a boat. We used Cudjoe Key Boat Rental just several streets up. Dillon and Shelby were super people to deal with. This bay is absolutely stunning and looks totally different from the water's view looking back towards the house, than from the house looking out over the water. Also, Thank you for having an ice maker for us to use. It was perfect for our daily boat rides and fishing trips.

We truly can't say enough about your place, how it is kept, and what you offer to your guest. It was the perfect spot for our family. We loved your home and can't wait for a return trip. My deepest appreciation to the owners for sharing this with us!!

Enjoyed The Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

You never know how these vacation homes will truly turn out , you know, the picture always looks better than the real thing. Well, not in this case. The home is very spacious, there were 9 of us, clean and well laid out. The back patio by the pool was perfect for early morning coffee and if you wanted out of the sun during the day. If you enjoy relaxing, kayaking (supplied), the quietness and just being.....this is a great spot. The view of the water was gorgeous, the wild life was there with being greeted by iguanas (but then they ran off) and all the foliage for privacy. We truly enjoyed our stay and will be back for round two! My advice is to rent a boat though so you can enjoy the water and around some of the small islands and snorkeling!

Unique Keys Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

In August 2013, we had our second visit to Casa Aqua, and we enjoyed it even more than last time! There have been some great additions that made our stay more comfortable! This time we brought a boat with us, and it was great to moor it on the dock. One of the greatest benefits of the property is that it is set way off the road, which is quite unusual in the Keys - since many properties are on the main highway, so they have significant traffic noise. Not so with Casa Aqua - there are many acres of vegetation which make the whole property very private! The property manager, Debra, was very accessible and went to great lengths to make sure we were happy and having a good time! We look forward to our next visit to Casa Aqua!

Casa Aqua in April 2013

  • 2 of 5

Initial impression poor,scruffy entrance,pool dirty,dead leaves outside.House spacious but claustrophobic,beds do not face sea.mangrove and trees very close to house and take away light.Bedroom set up strange,one only accessible by elevator.Kitchen functional.plenty of storage,bathrooms good.Central AC very noisy,especially at night.Pool area not very spacious,too many tables and breezes cut off by all the trees around,view quite restricted when could be magnificent.Had rained week before our arrival and many mosquitoes,took sprayers 4 days to arrive and could not be outside after 630 pm or eaten alive.Some no see ums but mainly mossies.

Beach a joke,too hot as no breeze,enormous dock where best breeze,plenty of boat spacxe.

Overall a disappointing holiday as place not as expansive and usable as we wanted.
