The property is located in Pirates Cove (mile marker 99), which is an early Key Largo development that is very quiet and conveniently located. The house is a stilt home that has been in our family since 1970's and is on a canal that leads to the Florida Bay. Includes dockage and a private boat ramp. For boaters, passage through Adams cut provides access to the ocean and John Pennekamp National Marine Sanctuary (approximately 20 minutes by boat from the house)
Includes one king bed, two full beds, and a queen sleeper sofa. The house is a traditional Keys cottage that has updated furnishings and is perfect for any small group wanting to stay and enjoy the Keys.
We really enjoyed our stay here, and the owners were very nice. They were helpful when needed and it was easy to communicate with them. We had never stayed at a house on a canal before. Sitting by the canal was very relaxing where we could fish and still had internet access. The wildlife was amazing, we saw peacocks, iguanas, a lot of different types of fish, jellyfish and manatees(saw 7 at 1 time). It was a peaceful neighborhood, with friendly neighbors. There's a lot to do and a lot of great restaurants in this area.
Rented the place for the month of March 2014 with my wife and daughter. The neighborhood was very quiet and safe and great to walk around in. We even walked to some local restaurants. The property is great. We really enjoyed the porch, large yard and canal views. It is just a short block from the community beach which was nice for our child. We also appreciated the covered parking, kayaks, and canoe. I cannot say enough good things about the owner. He was exactly who you want to rent a vacation property from.
My husband and I have been coming to the Keys since the early 80's and have been enjoying "Pleasants Nest" for the past several years. This property is definitely the most comfortable, centrally located conch house that we have ever stayed in. The owners and Bob, the maintenance person, have done everything possible to make our stays enjoyable. I feel very comfortable in the neighborhood, Pirates Cove, when taking our evening walks. There are manatees and iguanas that visit while we are enjoying the quiet mornings. And when it's time to go do what we do best, scuba dive, we are only 5 minutes away from the only dive operation in Key Largo that we use, Horizon Divers. Can't say enough about Pleasants Nest and the owners, Mark and Geraldine!
I was lucky enough to stay in this wonderful Keys home for the first time 2 years ago. I have been back several times since then, and my family and I just LOVE it! We even rented it for a month this past summer, and I was so sad when the month was over. I didn't want to leave! This house is so relaxing! It is located on a canal and has plenty of room for your boat to tie right up. We have seen manatees every time we have visited, and once we even had 9 manatees playing right in front of the house complete with a little baby manatee. It was so exciting! There are coconut trees in the yard, and iguanas exploring the yard and boat dock. I love that you don't have to travel far in your boat before you are out in the ocean and fishing, diving and snorkeling. Heck, you can even catch tons of fish right from the dock.
The house has lots of extras. There are two kayaks to use, a canoe, and even bikes. We spent hours in the kayaks exploring all of the great areas right in the waters by the house. And, speaking of the house, it is a very relaxing home. I always sleep in the king bed in the master bedroom and it is DIVINE! Super comfortable. I love the open area of the kitchen and den, and the wrap around porch/balcony area. We love sitting out there after dinner and just enjoying the Keys!
FInally, I cannot say enough about the owners of this home. They are simply incredible. You could not ask for nicer of kinder people! They are extremely accommodating and truly want their guests to have a great experience. I cannot wait to visit this wonderful home again soon.
