Our home is a bright, open house with huge windows that look out over the Gulf of Mexico. With water on two sides, there is plenty of dockage (over 150') for your boat. New furniture in all of the bedrooms, a new hot tub/spa that seats 5/6 people, a Ms. Pac-Man machine, and a Island Oasis frozen drink machine, and a 50 inch TV will keep you entertained in comfort and style.
Located on a quiet lagoon with protected dockage and beautiful wide open views of the Gulf. Sunsets are fabulous, and we often see manatees and tarpon from the dock. A commercial ice machine will make plenty of ice for fishing and cold drinks, while the new Kayak and bicycles will provide even more entertainment.
If you want a beautiful view and some R&R this is your place. Centrally located in the Keys for checking out other locations. We were really stoked to kayak, however there is not a ladder on the dock to enter or exit kayaks. Bikes were provided but tires were flat (pump is available), but both boys bikes and not user friendly for all. The owner has provided an A.C. unit for one bedroom. The other two bedrooms were very warm (our trip was mid April.) We finally had to buy small fans since ceiling fans were not adequate. A.C. in main living area was fine. The electrical outlets were wired so strange it took us several attempts to figure out that a light switch for a bedroom was located in the kitchen on a wall not near said bedroom.
One shower is equipped with rain head and power nozzles that was nice.
We still had a lovely time!
We enjoyed the location. We enjoyed watching the sunset. We enjoyed seeing the marine life right in the backyard. Ice machine was very helpful with boating and fishing. The kids enjoyed the Pac-Man machine.
We have stayed here 5 times in last 6 years that should say enough. House is very functional w/great views. Comfortably furnished and easy to keep clean. The owner is always very helpful and quick to address any issues. I absolutely recommend this property.
Very clean.Good location.Quiet,yet not far to drive to shops and restaurants.Great fishing straight off the boat dock.Good facilities with a superb view.Would stay again and would recommend to friends.
Rented by myself my parents, my brother and my 9 year old daughter. Checked in on 07/09 and was very impressed with the property. The ladder to get into the water was missing (found out later it was removed by the owner as barnacles grew on the steps) we were not able to get into the water.
The air conditioning was not adequate for this property. The master bedroom temp averaged 78-82 the entire week. We called the owner and he sent an Air Conditioning specialist who added freon but there are no returns in the master bedroom and the air just does not circulate in this room. We kept the sliding door between the middle bed room and master open as there is a unit in the middle bedroom which keeps that unit cool but it did nothing for the Master Bedroom.
The back bedroom was not as bad but was still hot for my brother. There was a note on the fridge that stated "helpful hint to maintain the temp to close the blinds in the living room (there went the beautiful views) After the Air Conditioning guy came and went the temperature did not improve. My mother spent the first night on the couch. After that I let her have my bed room and I spent the night on the couch from then on in.We are from Atlanta and are used to hot weather and do not complain. But coming inside from the Keys weather the last thing you want is more heat. (we vacation in the keys every year and are used to Keys weather)
I find it hard to believe no one has reviewed and mentioned the problem with the air conditioning before this. I can't recommend this property even though it is beautiful. He did have a ton of extra things to use such as bikes, kayaks and the hot tub.
Every other visit to the keys we have always wanted to stay longer. This trip we left Friday afternoon/early evening as no one felt like spending another sleepless night there.
I believe the property needs a new A/C system and would be an amazing rental if the owner put the money in to fix the air. I also believe this is the reason the property is listed and handled by the owner and not an agent as I believe an agent would not allow renters to stay here with the A/C being inadequate for this property. (there are no vents in the Master Bedroom and only a ceiling fan)
The owner is nice and responds swiftly but this is not a problem that can be temporarily fixed. We had a blast during the day outside but inside was pretty miserable when the temp hovers right around 80.I can't recommend the property.
My wife and I rented for a week with another couple. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and all amenities. The Mrs. Pacman machine with frogger and another game was a great addition. Plus the ice machine, extra bait fridge, bicycles and kayaks were all very nice additions that were put to good use.
