About Danny or Penny

We bought this home in 2004 and have had many great times here and continue to do so now. We are always trying to make it better. We Retired In 2003 and try to maintain our homes in a problem, worry free manner so if it needs repair it gets it. We love to travel and meet new people and places. We Love dining in the Keys, there are some very amazing restaurants to eat at. Sunsets are so serene and amazing. In the winter there are people from everywhere here in our subdivision as well as the surrounding areas. Our neighbors are the best and so helpful. We really love to just come to the keys and do absolutely nothing or everything that's what makes it so much fun. We have never had anyone say I hate it here in fact our friends come often.

Danny or Penny purchased this house in 2004

Why Danny or Penny chose Hammer Point

We bought our house in Hammer Point for the area, neighbors, the Canal it is on is the widest canal in the subdivision and simply for the awesome views that you get out of just about every window in the house. We could see more than the realtor could see for our future and this house. We have not regretted this purchase not even for a second, It has been a great second home and we love it. It felt like home the minute we walked in. So we bought it the next minute. We have made many upgrades and I am sure that we will make many more in the future but for now it is just right.

What makes this house unique

Great sunsets, waterfront, boat lift, double jet ski dock, covered parking, lots of parking for trailers and such

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE spend every February and March here at Dan and Penny's home here in the Keys. We love it and cant think of anywhere we would rather stay. They update DIFFERENT THINGS EVERY YEAR. they repair as soon as there is any problem not that there has be many actually we have been staying her for about 5 years and have only had to have 1 thing repaired and it was done the same day it was reported to Penny. Its just so relaxing here and when my wife is there by herself due to me working I know she is safe. we just could not have found better house or owners to stay with. We will be returning for as long as we are able.

Wez in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great Summer in this very cozy canal home. The neighborhood is fantastic. We took our boatand enjoyed th ise of a convenient boat lift. We spent lots of time just swimming and paddle boarding in the canal. The sea life was amazing with occasional visits by a manatee family. It's on the Bay side, but has a very short boat ride to the ocean side through Tavernier Creek. We are even considering purchasing a vacation home in the neighborhood. Till then we would definitely re-rent this property again. Beautiful sunsets on the bay are spectacular. it's very easy to catch the "Keys Disease" while staying there, That's a good thing.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that your summer vacation was awesome, and that our home was comfortable and able to suit your needs. I am so glad that you got to enjoy the canal it's a pretty nice canal or at least we think it is. The manatees make for an enjoyable adventure and relaxing compampny. Thank you for your reservation We look forward to having you back as guests and or neighbors. The Keez disease is contagious!!! But so very enjoyable.

Wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

The high ceilings and open floor plan made the inside of this rental a pleasure. We were close to our favorite key beach at Harris park. The neighborhood was safe for walking round at any time with friendly neighbors and beautiful views. We rented kayaks from PTFK who delivered and picked them up right at the door. The dock was a perfect place to center our paddle trips around. We could swim off the dock and view manatees with our morning coffee. Even had a few dolphin drop by. The owners helped us with any troubles we had which were few. Our best rental in the keys so far. Would definitely recommend and hope to come back in the future.

Hammer Point Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth rental in Hammer Point and we really enjoyed this house. House was very clean & well appointed. Everything was as described. The back yard was great and the canal was great for an afternoon dip. The Kitchen/great room was wonderful for the family to cook our catch & hang out with family & friends. Would have liked a TV in the master bedroom to catch up on the evening news, but other than that it was "perfect" nice neighbors also

Beautiful, Clean and convienent Keys Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. We are long time Keys visitors and enjoy boating, diving and fishing and have stayed in the Keys regularly for more than 20 years and always rent homes or condos and this house was very clean and comfortable with lots of shade and a beautiful cool tiki hut area for relaxing next to the dock. The screen porch was nice for outdoor bug free evenings and watching the sunset out the balcony was very nice each night. We will definitely return on our next trip if available and the owners were so wonderful and easy to deal with . I left some items at the house and they were so kind to make sure i got them back and i sure appreciate that. The neighborhood is very nice and the next door neighbors on each side of us were so nice and friendly. We took a day trip down to Key West and returned the same day back for our last night for Sunset dinner at Lorelei's. It was a great time and we can't wait for our next visit! Thank you Penny and Danny! it was so great and relaxing to share your home for a little while.

Relaxing in the Keys

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to the Keys and we really enjoyed our stay in your home. The house was beautiful and we agree with other reviewers about the spectacular views!! We enjoyed going down to the canal each morning with our coffee, to see the manatees playing in the water. We dined out, made our own meals and thoroughly enjoyed our time with our kids. The only negative was the distance to Key West so we may opt to stay closer there some time in the future. However, if you want a quiet getaway this home is definitely worth considering.

Owner's Response: Each key has something positive to offer here in the Florida Keys and Key West is def. worth the drive and visit, so much to do and to see. I always try to encourage all travelers who have not been to Key West to take a couple days out of there schedule and go or help to find a suitable place to stay while there. Manatees in the canal are always such a special visitor here in the keys we also look forward to seeing them and watching out for them.

We had a wonderful stay over the Holidays at Danny and Penny's home! They were great to work with and very accomodating. The house is absolutely pristine and fitted our needs perfectly. It is a great location, accessible to restaurants and activities by land or water. It is located in a very nice and friendly neighborhood. We hope to stay again over the summer! Thanks for sharing your lovely home!
