About Valerie Fortson Eikenberg

I grew up in Michigan but moved to Florida right after college. I enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming. I still enjoy snow skiing and snowmobiling and go every winter at Boyne Mountain.

Valerie Fortson Eikenberg purchased this mobile home in 2006

Why Valerie Fortson Eikenberg chose Lower Keys Area

It's great for snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, jet skiing, boating, paddleboarding and kayaking. On the rare rainy day - we head to Key West to do some shopping and bar hopping.

What makes this mobile home unique

It's located on a deep water canal(about 8 feet deep), only a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean(about 150 feet from open water) and the back country of the Gulf of Mexico. Now that's what I call GREAT boating access! Beautiful sparkling blue water at Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, just a short boatride away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful place with us. We had a great time! We did not get a chance to rent a jet-ski-who know we would stay so busy the entire trip. Thanks again! Loretta & Scotty

Everything we needed to enjoy our first trip to the Florida Keys!

  • 5 of 5

Bo's Hideaway had everything we needed for our trip to the Florida Keys. It was located only about 30 minutes from Key West and was far enough away to enjoy a peaceful vacation. It is located in the Venture Out Resort, which is a nice, well cared for community of homes and RV sites. You can rent a golf cart to get around the resort to utilize the heated pool, tennis courts, and other amenities, or you can use the bikes that are also provided! Our family used the provided kayaks and paddle board and tried to catch a fish off the canal, you can sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the canal that is right out the door! FYI-when you check in at the gate when you arrive, they need $53.75 in cash or check, no credit cards! That didn't detract from the great time we had! We will be back someday!

Wonderful place only 30-mins from Key West

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Bo's. Val and Terry are great hosts and they even came by to check on us and give us all the tidbits the locals only know.

The place is super clean, nicely decorated, well furnished and worked perfect for the 4 of us. (2 adult couples). It's great just sitting out on the deck enjoying the cool sea breeze. The kayak's were good to have and the bicycles got used as well. The Venture Out resort was going thru a re-pave, so the roads were patchy, but looks like that's going to be on the mend very soon. The pool is sparkling clean and the grounds are very tidy. They have a store with just about everything and a pancake B-fast on Saturday mornings. There were a lot more amenities that we didn't take advantage of.

BYOB, we only wish we had a boat with us to tie up to the back, then we could be in the Atlantic fishing within minutes.

We highly recommend The Square Grouper for a nice seafood dinner, a bit pricey and you are sure to wait a long time to be seated. Over 1.5 hrs and they don't take reservations. Forget Starbucks and ride a bike over to Mojita's for some Cafe con Leche and a pastry or tasty authentic Cuban food. Fish restaurant down on Sutherlands Key also had excellent dining and was much more reasonable than The Square Grouper and without the wait.

We would definately come back here when we visit the keys again.

A beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Bo's was the perfect getaway for our family. It was a quiet & beautiful location. Close enough to do everything we wanted to do. The house was very comfy and had everything we needed to be comfortable. Valerie was very quick to answer any questions we had. We were very happy with our decision to make Bo's Tropical Get-A-Way our "home away from home".

Thank you Valerie

Have fun in the Florida sun in the fabulous laid-back Keys. This two bedroom two bathroom(sleeps up to six people) vacation accommodation is located only twenty minutes from Key West. Three free ocean kayaks(one two-person kayak and two single person), one paddleboard and four adult size bicycles are yours exclusively to use during your stay. Life jackets and of course paddles are also provided. A seawall ladder allows easy access into the kayaks. The Ernest Hemingway House in Key West is a must for cat lovers. The Turtle Hospital in Marathon has daily tours of their facility and has an awesome gift shop with really nice turtle t-shirts in great colors. The Dolphin Research Center is in Marathon and offers daily tours, painting with a dolphin and other dolphin encounters. Theater of the Sea in Islamorada also offers swim with a dolphin encounter, trainer for a day, and great daily shows. Many local dive shops offer daily snorkel and dive trips to world famous dive and snorkel Looe Key Marine Sanctuary and the wreck the Adolphus Busch. The wreck of the Vandenberg in Key West is awesome for more advanced divers !!! For boat rentals - I highly recommend Living the Dream Boat Rentals on Summerland Key. Rent jet skis in Key West and go on a tour of Key West by water. If you have time, take a day trip to the Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson(this is a once-in-a lifetime adventure although a little pricey). The Eco-Discover Center in Key West is free and has free parking. Right next door is the US Coast Guard Cutter the Ingham which has self guided tours. If you need any information on local restaurants, boat rentals, dive operators or anything else - please inquire. Two boogie boards are also provided.
