About The Owner

This is my 'get away' form a very hectic work life. It is 'one particular harbor sheltered from the wind'. Unfortunately, I don't get there nearly as often as I like. Work places too many demands on my time so, my friends can often avail themselves to its relaxing atmosphere and comfortable surroundings.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Key Largo

This is a small but very comfortable place. It is just what I like and so many of my friends are thrilled with their stays. It just has its own fascinating charm.

What makes this house unique

Hard to say what its truly unique. There is a special combination of surroundings and atmosphere that simply make it a very special little oasis.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Exactly as advertised, Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as the photos depict and a very nice base to explore the Keys, Miami, and the surrounding area. The owner is very cordial and helpful. When we arrived the cable wasn't working and the owner spent several hours of his time to correct the issue. You can't ask for better than that! The kayaks are a nice addition as well. There are a ton of places to eat within a couple minutes drive, grocery stores within a few miles as well. As for the house, it is exactly as pictured. Affordable, good location, very helpful can you go wrong?

An Idyllic Week in Key Largo

  • 5 of 5

You can't go wrong if a quiet and romantic week in Key Largo appeals to you. Yes, we did the "touristy" things like cruising on the REAL African Queen (from the famous movie) and the glass-bottom boat ride out to the famous reef. And a day-trip to Key West was a fun way to fill the week. But the highlight was the variety of restaurants all so close by: don't miss Buzzard's Roost and Morada Bay, plus Harriette's for breakfast. Fantastic! The view of the Gulf is quite lovely, and a cup of coffee out on the porch just made the mornings. All in all, we feel we could not have done better, especially for the price! And the owners are most helpful with information provided to help you find nearby attractions and places to eat. Or, grab groceries from the nearby Publix and fix your own in the fully-equipped kitchen. We recommend this lovely cottage to any couple or family.

Very Private

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at your home. This home was well equipped with everything we needed right down to the spices we cooked with. We loved walking down to the beach and dock area. The peace and quiet was wonderful. Oh and the Key Lime Pie was great from the Blond Giraffe.....Would love to come back and stay longer.

If you are looking for quiet neighborhood, with a great wrap around porch, this is the place. The walk to gulf is a short distance and has a great boat, kayak launch. My husband and I got to get some good R&R.

Very nice rental home

  • 4 of 5

This home was very nice. The owner was very easy to work with and the property was as described. It has a good location, near amenities, but secluded and quiet. We really enjoyed being close to the beach and the availability of three kayaks.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I wanted to get away for a few days and found this on our search for the perfect Key Largo home. We were "wowed" when we arrived to this beautiful, well kept home. As most homes in the keys, it's a two story with the lower level set up for dining, gaming or just relaxing. The upper level has a spacious living area with a view into the well appointed kitchen. In the evenings, you can relax on the wrap around veranda or head into Key Largo for a bite to eat. Since we chose not to cook (as we were on vacation), there were many excellent restaurants to choose from and they did not fail to exceed our expectations! The owner even has someone local to assist if we had any questions or there ever were an issue, but we never did. So many sights to see and things to do, it's hard to list. I cannot begin to say enough about this amazing home. We plan on making future trips but I don't think we'll get away without our husbands. Thank you JT for making our stay feel like home.
