The search is over-this is perfect for families!
This is the PERFECT Family retreat! Each year, my husband and I take our 5 grown kids and their significant others to the Keys for a family vacation. We've tried multiple locations and dealt with multiple management teams-This was the best we've ever had! Our search is over, this is the place we'll be coming for the foreseeable future.
The house looks a bit dated in the pictures, but frankly, it couldn't be laid out better for a large group with plenty of gathering space, a great kitchen and the perfect location. The view from the balcony and the main bedrooms is awesome. See the sunrise and the sunset from the porch.
We went in mid December, only 3 months after the devastation of Hurricane Irma, and yes, the damage to the Keys, and that area is both sobering and heartbreaking. However, the house was in perfect shape and the Keys are recovering.
Shannon and Amy, who run Walk about Retreats are the best! You won't go wrong renting from them and staying at this fabulous place.
GREAT GET AWAY
The house was outstanding and the view was truly breath taking. We discovered our house was for sale and we were hoping that when it did the same people would manage it. Tom was there EVERY morning to check on things, very helpful with local knowledge. The only problem we had was with our grill, once the management was informed it was fixed with in a half hour, great service. I would recommend this house to anybody. we can't wait to do it again!!
I rented this house for winter break with my children and grandchildren. It was a perfect house. The house is usually not as important to me as the view. So I was thrilled to get both with this rental. Everyone had their own space. Parents staying up late, or early riser babies didn't interfere with the vacation. Not much for sight seeing just relaxing was our goal. Did the key west bar situation a couple days before staying at the house but close enough for others do go and enjoy. The house doors slide all the way into the walls so the view was beautiful. The screened porch gave us the luxury to wake up to the view and sleep with beautiful breezes. No central air for us. Though it was available. The house is well stocked, don't think there is anything that you wished that they had. Though I know the keys are not known for big beach areas. It was great taking the kayaks out daily and just enjoying the sunshine. We went to dinner a couple times and went to 2 beaches. We needed chairs and umbrellas for the children and some adults so Smathers beach had everything we needed. Though I know the keys are not known for big beach areas. My only suggestion is that the picture shown looks as if the chairs and beach front is all sand. There is a small amount of sand at the beach front but I thought it was all around the front where the lounge chairs are pictured. It would have made a difference with little ones who would have been able to play in the sand. It actually is tiny small stones (shoes advised) that surround that area. This place would be perfect with sand in that area!!
True vacation setting.
My husband and I spent a week at Family Retreat with 3 other couples escaping the winter up north. This house was perfect for four couples. The views all day long of Cudjoe Bay and beyond, sunrises, sunsets, storm clouds rolling in and out, full moon rising. The large screened in porch was just so inviting and a pleasure to be in at anytime. Vacation home it is for sure. You can take public transportation to Key West to avoid the hassle of traffic and parking. We enjoyed the state park up the road. Sitting on the dock in the bay......well I heard lots of exhaling.....I think we were all decompressing. Thank you Walkabout Retreats.....it was a treat.
Our whole family stayed here April 2011. We had a blast! Plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed being so close to Key West. The kids went down there several times. Shannon is a great person to work with. We loved our stay here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home wioth us.
We stayed here over Thanksgiving 2010 - it was as AWESOME as it looks. The house was everything we could have wanted, room for all 10 of us with space to spare. We went from the ocean to the pool to the hot tub and back again. We kayaked about the area and took in the wildlife. We were so close to Key West and headed in a couple of times, it was great to go in for all the nightlife and then go back to the calm, quiet and peaceful house. Shannon was great to deal with, I did the whole thing via email and I got everything as described in the contract. Really, try this house for the family retreat - the pictures of the dock are new - nice! I can't wait to go back again, the rest of the family is still talking about it.
Conveniently located 20 miles from Key West and 20 miles from Bahia Honda State Park. Day spa, gym/yoga studio, fish market and 4 great restaurants all located within a mile. Great kayaking.
