Our home is a bungalow with cathedral ceilings. It is spacious and sparkling clean. Our home is #655 at Venture Out Resort on Cudjoe Key. (A 24-hour gated community).

We have a light and bright two bedroom, one bath cottage which is a tropical paradise. We have wood floors and tropical decor. The roomy living room has a TV with expanded cable, DVD, comfy couch (which can also sleep 2 people), love seat that also has a pull out bed & a comfy rattan chair. Each room is light and bright and always sparkling clean. Our home is obviously equipped with central air to keep you comfortable & cool. In the summertime we also supplement with portable a/c's due to the high temps in the Keys! We have WIFI in our home so you can remain 'connected' to the world while enjoying paradise!

Adjacent to the living room is the large eat in kitchen which we have just completely redone with new cabinets, counters and updated appliances. There is an adjacent dining room table. People always end up in the kitchen! There's lots of light and new larger windows so it's a great place to be! Fully stocked with everything you'd be looking for on vacation including dishes, wine glasses, all the pots and pans you need, coffee maker, keurig, blender, toaster and MORE.

The master bedroom has a KING size bed with new comforter, lots of storage space and cable TV.

We're provided lots of fluffy new cotton towels in the bathroom.

The second bedroom has a twin trundle, when the two twin beds are side by side it's like another King Size Bed and cable TV which is video game ready (currently has PS2 connected with about 10 games including Guitar Hero)!

We have a new grill in our backyard along with cement patio furniture for you to enjoy the beautiful keys weather. The front porch as a cute table for two so you can enjoy the sunrise and your morning coffee!

Bring your boat! There is no charge for launching in at the Venture Out Marina, your boat can be stored in the 'overflow' lot for a small fee ($2-$4 day). The Florida Keys have some of the best fishing in the world! (Boat and trailer parking is an additional daily charge by the park.) It is also a great spot for Kayaks. You can swim or fish from our open water areas. There is a big TIKI HUT on the open water where picnicking is perfect!

PETS are allowed. An nonrefundable pet fee of $50 will be charged to cover the additional cleaning costs. Our home is always sparkling clean!

We're only 19 miles from Key West, but do not think you HAVE to go anywhere - lay by the HUGE POOL right on the OPEN WATER and watch the elegant seagulls float overhead as the palms sway. Sun yourself and read a good book and simply relax! Plunge into the BIG JACUZZI and soak your troubles away. Or spend some time with someone you love - holding hands and watching the herons fishing along the waterside! And you do not even have to get in your car to do any of these!

About Kristine Croteau-owner

I've been vising the keys for years. In 2010 while on vacation we stumbled across this property and suddenly we now own a little piece of the Keys paradise!

Kristine Croteau-owner purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Kristine Croteau-owner chose Lower Keys Area

We chose to buy in the Keys as it's a beautiful relaxing location! We live in Massachusetts and LOVE to escape to the Keys!

What makes this bungalow unique

Key West is only 19 miles away so our property is a great location, you can relax here or travel for some excitement. We have some great places close by to eat, The Square Grouper, The Wharf Grill, Bookdocks, Mangrove Mama's....most look like holes in the wall that you'd never enter at home but they're great. It's all part of the unique beauty of the Keys!

Guestbook comments from the owner

in the Keys!! We saw the 0 mile marker and the souther most point. We went to Key West and explored the colorful streets. We really loved the house and hope to come back!!

Great time

  • 4 of 5

Definitely enjoyed our time in the Keys. This property was as described. Very well stocked, especially in the kitchen. 3 space air conditioner units, 1 in each of the bedrooms and 1 in the kitchen. During the heat of the day, they struggled a bit to keep it cool, but was grateful to have them. WIFI worked well. No complaints.

Birthday week of relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cute, casual and laid back community. We were looking for someplace pet friendly to go for a little vacation and found that here. The community is very friendly and they have their own gas station and grocery store right by the private Beach. There is a jacuzzi and a pool that's great to enjoy some suntanning. If you bring your pet you must walk him outside of the community by the Guard shack. We thought we were going to go to Key West a lot since it's only about 30 miles but we really ended up just hanging in Cudjoe Key. Places I recommend: SugarLoaf (awesome treats) and The Bucktooth Rooster restaurant where every serving of whatever you get is HUGE! The unit was spacious since it was just 2 of us and our doggie. The main bedroom has a really comfortable bed, all rooms have TV and cable. You also get a full kitchen with utensils for all your cooking needs. To be honest we never really cooked because we wanted to enjoy the local restaurants fresh seafood (WE DID) Everyone we met was very friendly and we enjoyed our conversations by the pool with many of the residents. Please always keep in mind that while you are renting there are people there who are residents :) Over all my girlfriend and my Mini Schnauzer really enjoyed our stay here and are looking forward to our next time renting here. Thank you to Kristine Croteau for always answering any and all of my questions while we were booking the unit. We will be back!

Customer Service from Kristine is a 6 star service!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip is planned for June of this year, I am absolutely excited to see how amazing this place will be. If the rental comes any where close to that absolutely amazing customer service that we have received from Kristine then I know it will be the perfect trip. She has gone out of her way to answer all of our questions, her replies are usually within an hour, sometimes even fast than that! She is kind and understanding, she is the type of person one hopes to deal with when renting a place for vacation. She has given us a 6 STAR experience and we haven't even left the house yet! I look forward to our vacation in her adorable rental! I highly recommend this rental because you can not beat the accommodating and friendly customer service Kristine gives you!! Will update or add another review after we experience this trip. But if you are searching for a place to rent I highly recommend this place because you will not find better customer service, and to me that is one of the most important parts of planning a vacation.

Owner's Response: We actually got the AC serviced on 8/23 and it's up and working great. We have central air supplemented by 3 portable ACs for when it's really hot. Summers in the Keys are very warm! :)
