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 sectional (which can also sleep 2 people) & a comfy 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 has updated cabinets, counters and new 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.

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 has a large deck, seating for 4 but there's 2 more folding chairs in the cabinet. You can enjoy the sunrise and your morning coffee, family dinners and evening cocktails!

Bring your boat! We are on a dry lot but 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. The park does have pet rules which are part of the rental agreement. 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!!

Perfect location for all things Florida Keys!

  • 4 of 5

This location was perfect, laid back yet still close to the hustle and bustle of Key West. Kitchen was great and the Winn Dixie shopping Mart is just a couple miles North of the resort. The pool was clean and overlooked the ocean. Everything was perfect, would stay here again in a heartbeat!

This was our second stay at Venture Out. The first rental was much less than we had hoped for. This time the add matched the property. We felt secure and safe. The rental was clean, comfortable and had ample household goods. Communication with owner couldn't have been better. Beds and bedding were nice. Kitchen had everything we needed and then some. Being in the Florida Keys it goes without saying that it is HOT. This rental had central air and three portable air units inside. Most of the day and nights were ok but during the heat of the day it gets pretty warm inside. Overall we had a grand time and enjoyed our stay. Would stay here again!

Over all we had such a blast the boat launch was good to have so close. It was actually close to a few good resterants and the girls got there nails done all near by. The kitchen was amazing plenty of room. The kids had such a blast it was amazing. Over all I would love to go back and do it all again.

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!
