Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely incredible!!!!! Heaven on earth...It doesn't get any better than this. Room for everyone and the layout is perfect for extended family and everyone feels like they have their own private space. Countless areas to relax and unwind, from a private beach, resort pool, rooftop terrace, balconies and patios.We stayed with our 2 adult sons and their wife and girlfriend. Perfect vacation with all the amenities. Private apartment on first level that my oldest son and his wife stayed in. My younger son brought his girlfriend and she was able to stay in a separate building that had a set up that rivaled a 5 star resort. Beautiful beach and resort style pool that makes it extremely hard to leave the property. We had planned on taking a daytrip to Key West but after getting here we never wanted to leave. A must stay property..Can't say enough great things about it!

Incredible property, amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

This home and property truly have all you could want in a Keys vacation. We came in a large group with a large boat to fish and to swim with the kids. We all had plenty to do, and plenty of space to do it in. Everyone had rooms and plenty of space. The listing and pictures really do not do it justice. We had an unforgettable time. The great fishing dock, cleaning station and ice machine on site are priceless. The home is pristine and beautifully furnished. Had a great experience thru the rental process. Staff were very professional as well. Highly recommend. We'll be back!

AMAZING TIME in the Keys ~

  • 5 of 5

WOW... This home is just AMAZING!!! We just returned from our family reunion at Lo-Key Estate and I can't say enough about this home and property. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay. The pool area is just beautiful and tropical (love the tiki torches at night).. We had a large group and you never felt crowded. The activities are endless..from paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, ping pong, basketball. I would also highly recommend taking a trip to Looe Key for snorkeling trip!

Thank You to the owners and Paul for a wonderful stay ~ We will definitely be back!!

Something for Everyone!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Lo-Key Estate, and it was fabulous! We had three couples, five children and no one was less than thrilled with this unbelievable property! The house is beautiful, graciously appointed with everything you could possibly want in a vacation home. The entertainment options were endless, as this house is equipped with endless toys for the entire family! The sprawling property inside and out offered as much privacy as one could want, yet wonderfully spacious areas for a crowd. The description is so accurate, if not a bit understated!! The Trading Post was a good place to shop for food, sort of a small Whole Foods type, and our favorite dinning spot was Morado Bay! But we really found we loved just spending most of our time at Lo-Key!! Highly recommend for large group, families, or friends!

This home was amazing!!!!!! Plenty of room for a large family. Owners were wonderful to deal with. Everything that was promised was there. Pictures do no justice for this home it is immaculate and far exceeded our expectation. This was the perfect vacation home. Separate rooms for every one; privacy for newly weds, complete suite to keep the teenagers close but at arms length and and unbelievable master suite. Perfect location near the center of all the keys. A short drive to Key West. This home has it all.. Again Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
