About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

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. 2 Paddleboards, 2 kayaks, a 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 Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks and bicycles will provide even more entertainment.

We had a week filled with wonderful memories! There were enough beds and space for all of us. Our kids range from 8-15 and they all had a blast! We fished everyday...our son caught a shark & an eel right outside the back of the house! Many fish were caught, especially the hours before sunset. We rented a boat for a few days and loved that we never had to take it out of the water. It was so easy & fun! The kids loved having the arcade game, Ms Pacman. Who knew that would have entertained so much? There were no pool/ beach towels and the housekeeper went and bought some for our use...very accomodating! Owner was great with communication and prompt response when needed. Only complaint of house would be is the really small kitchen & dishwasher- the dishes never really got cleaned very well. We managed and decided to eat out more! Bonus!

Loved the MBath shower ... the storage room downstairs was great for our fishing gear. Also, the ice machine & bait freezer came in handy.

Amazing view of water and sunset from the huge windows inside of the home and from the hot tub outside! Would definetly return...very pleased with our rental choice! Thanks Greg!

Beautiful location.

  • 3 of 5

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!

Amazing View and Great Location for the Gulf

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.
