Donald Groh purchased this house in 2006
It is a great location for fishing, snorkeling and just having fun and relaxing with my family.
Fishing, snorkeling, diving, swimming, relaxing and enjoying the best time with family and friends.
We had a great vacation and made many great memories. We hope to come back soon for more. One week was not enough to do all there is to do and see in this beautiful place! Thank you so much for being such a kind and responsive host. Our dogs loved this place too!!!
We head to the Keys at least once a year so we are no stranger to this area actually prefer it. This year we invited extra family in so had to hunt for a larger home for six, almost didn’t rent this one as it had no current reviews, but we did and now we will give you the good and bad of it. The house is off the beaten path, literally, you take a gravel road to get to it! To the left is an unfinished home to the right is a full time residence neither of which you see due to wooded area so there is a great sense of privacy and seclusion. WE LOVED how QUIET it was but this might not be for everyone. House sleeps SIX, if you happen to be a party of 8 and 4 are kids that get along you might be able to use the additional sleeping option that is a closet clubhouse hideaway in one of the bedrooms. The sunset views are GREAT from the house balcony, roof deck, and dock. There are plenty of kayaks, paddle boards, snorkels, and fins to go around for a group to play. We saw some cool fish swimming past under the dock and boats tethered to it but no real snorkeling on site. If you tire of the ocean, the pool is refreshing with the sun shade over it and the deck chairs command full sun and are comfortable. There are plenty of bikes available, although most are sized for children but they appear to be in working order. The Volleyball court is not sugar sand, so no diving, but it is there all you have to do is put the net up! We rearranged the ground floor game room, another great feature, to leave the ping pong table open for the week so we could play pool or ping pong during rain delays or after dark, a stand-alone AC at this level keeps it from being stuffy so you can leave it closed off from bugs. Yes as with anywhere in this area the house has bugs! Mosquitoes and no-see-um’s are voracious at dawn and dusk/after dark. Unfortunately the screened porch off the back is aged and sort of like Swiss cheese so best to bring bug spray to enjoy the outdoor areas during these times. This house has the look and feel of a daily live in rather than a rental. If you are bothered by “well broke in” superficial flaws, or personal items being present this might not be your “paradise found” house, it is just not as stream lined as a home used strictly for renters. WE Enjoyed being able to just FLOP DOWN and BE COMFORTABLE in the home without fear of accidents. Overall we had a great week and we thank whoever vacated it to allow us to hang for our own family fun.
The property was everything we were looking for and then some! 10 days was too short. Owners were accommodating and helpful during our stay. If your looking for a quiet getaway this is the place.
We just returned from a fabulous week at your house with 3 college kids and 1 high schooler - great time had by all. Thanks so much for the boat tour and the delicious crab. Caught lots of fish and saw lots of wiildlife. Perfect location off the "beaten" path but close enough to be able to get to Key West etc very easily. The house is well equipped and has all the home comforts - we hated to leave!
The house and location was excellent.............private location...easy access to Key West..great snorkeling and lobstering near by. The house had everything we forgot to bring and then some. Donald and his son were great about giving us a tour and making us feel very much "at home." Don's neighbor said "he would give his shirt off his back to make sure you had a good time"...I believe it. Nice people to deal with.
The pool was clean and the water felt great...it was hot in August.
Would strongly recommend if you enjoy privacy and incredible sunsets.
Thanks much for a great vacation...my family had a super time.
The host was very hospitable and welcoming when he arrived to greet us. And the crabs he brought back from his fishing trip were excellent! The listing for the home was fairly accurate however it was written when the home was relatively new or just prior to putting it up on VRBO. We found numerous things broken, worn out, or unable to be used (bikes, sailboat, volley ball set, chairs and tables, shade umbrellas). The pool skimmer was inoperative and the chlorine dispenser was broken. Screen doors were broken with one with the screen hanging out. The view however was wonderful and we did enjoy the use of the pool as it was. I would have a hard time recommending the property to someone else until things were brought back up to reasonable condition, especially for the rental rate being requested.
Our family, ranging from teenage boys to older grandparents turely enjoyed our stay at your home. The quiet early mornings on the dock right out back was my favorite indulgence. The grandma's had a great time testing out all the great places to sit in the sun or shade and read. The loacation was private but close enough to the action for us to enjoy a few days boating and diving on Looe Key and a day at Key West was an easy undertaking.
The owners were prompt and responsive to all our prevacation inquiries. Don and his son met us on arrival and treated us like old friends and were generous in allowing us to use not only the home but the many recreational items there as well. We enjoyed the kyacks and canoe, and used the snorkling and fishing gear right off the dock. There was so much more we didn't have time to try. We all enjoyed the heated pool.
Great snorkeling, diving, fishing, and kayaking.
