About Chris Haynes

We have been going to the Fla. Keys for many years, first with our children and as our family grew, now with our grandchildren too. We needed a large, private and safe home, in a great location to provide entertainment for all the different ages and interests in our family to continue our family reunions. After looking for many months, we found 'Parroteyes' and we decided to buy in 1992.

Chris Haynes purchased this house in 1992

Why Chris Haynes chose Sunshine Estates

'Parroteyes' has so much to offer, there is something for every age and interest!

What makes this house unique

Because we use the house also, it is equipped to the smallest detail and total comfort. It's wonderful not having to pack so much and to have all you need there while vacationing! Our grounds are very tropical with a Jacuzzi, shaded hammocks for relaxation, a pool to play and cool off, a Tiki Bar to enjoy refreshments and a patio were the children can play safely, while the catch of the day is being cleaned on the dock ready to be grilled on the BBQ for diner. We offer plush beds and we supply all nice linen and towels. The house is beautifully decorated and equipped with all that you may need for a very comfortable stay. You're going to love it here in 'Parroteyes', it will exceed your expectations!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a guest book at the house available for comments and suggestions that our past guests have given us since we started renting. To our future guests, we always welcome and appreciate your words of encouragement and your opinions.

Home away from home in the middle of paradise at Parroteyes Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a prime location. It's located right on the water where there is quick access to bay or ocean by boat. It's very close to everything! The grocery store is located 3 minutes away and restaurants are right around the corner. (Dillon's Pub has delicious food!) The home is great for vacationing with family and friends. There is plenty of space and everything is very well kept. The owners of the home are very nice and they are always quick to reply. They were very helpful during our stay. I would highly recommend this home for an amazing effortless vacation in the Keys!

A great bayside canalfront vacation home in a great location with GREAT owners!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year (and we're reserved for many, many more) renting from two fabulous owners. There are two levels (3bdrm/2baths with full kitchens on each level) that are fully furnished and very comfortable! Every year we come back the owners have always made fantastic changes!!

The home is always clean upon arrival and the owners are always accommodating. The backyard is fabulous with a swimming pool, jacuzzi, tiki bar and a large hammock calling your name under the large shade tree that lines the walkway to the boat dock complete with a fish cleaning station. The home is close to everything if you choose to venture out. The home is located on a bayside canal with easy access to the ocean through Tavernier Creek. Every night we took a slow ride out to watch the sunset, which never gets boring. If you're looking for a great place to stay in the Florida Keys, look know further! You won't be disappointed!

Comfortable and relaxing family home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Parroteyes; we enjoyed it so much the first time. We stayed at Christmastime again, and Chris had decorated with Christmas lights, so we felt very welcome.

What a lovely spot! The house is well maintained, clean, and very comfortable. There is a large tree in the yard and plenty of shade in the afternoon for those who want it. It is very relaxing. Our group of eleven family members could really spread out. Some were sunbathing on the lounge chairs, some were playing cards, someone was reading in the hammock, and others were soaking in the hot tub.

The location is very convenient. A small shopping center with a grocery store is just one mile away. Snorkeling and fishing outfitters are also nearby. Founders Park has a nice family beach, volleyball, bocce ball, and a pool. Take your rental agreement for free admission. John Pennekamp State Park is about 20 minutes north. There are restaurants too, but we used the excellent kitchens to prepare most of our own meals.

Overall, the place feels like home, and I would highly recommend it.

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house in August of 2014 and I'm just getting around to writing a review because I'm already thinking about booking for next year.

The house was very clean with great floor plans to accomodate two couples with privacy and separate bathrooms. Each floor had 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms so it could easily be used by a small group, 2 couples or a larger group of friends and family. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook but who wants to on vacation? Within a short distance there are many restaurants and beach bars with happy hours

and specials. Our favorite was the Lorelei which has live music and great food. If you do want to cook there is a large shopping plaza very close.

The house is in a great location. Directly on a canal with easy access to both the Gulf and the ocean so you can enjoy both. The water is clear and you can see plenty of fish and one day a family of manatees came to visit. The dock has fresh water for cleaning your boat or the fish you caught.

The pool had a Tiki Bar and plenty of lounge chairs and the water was just cleaned. There's also

a hot tub if you need even more water.

The property is well maintained and has everything you would need for a great vacation. I would recommend this property to anyone that wants a carefree, private vacation in a safe and quiet

family neighborhood.

Great House, Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

I would buy this house! Close to shopping & dive shop, well-appointed and nicely furnished. We were there the week before Christmas and the other houses on the canal were empty - lots of privacy, and lots of wildlife! Manatees every day at the dock, egrets, white, blue & night herons, a dolphin, beautiful iguanas, playful squirrels, and even a couple of crocodiles (who didn't stop anyone from swimming in the canal). We rented both the upstairs and the downstairs - perfect for two families. Master bedrooms have their own bathrooms, Jack & Jill bathrooms between the kids' bedrooms. Each floor has its own kitchen. and we were able to seat 11 upstairs so we could all eat together. The back yard faces north - perfect for hot days. There's a huge hibiscus tree that shades half the yard, leaving the sun on the pool area for sunbathing. The hot-tub warms up to 104 and has room for 9. Fifteen minutes up the road is John Pennecamp National Park - with a great mangrove maze and kayak rentals, a swimming beach, and a snorkeling beach where they have sunk a reproduction of an old ship in really shallow water, and some great hikes.

Chris is very friendly and great to work with. We only had one slight problem with the property and she had it fixed very quickly.

Great place for a family vacation or relaxing get-away - just don't go the week my family wants it!

Owner's Response: To tell you a secret we bought this house without going inside, we loved the location! We've come a long way from the way it used to look inside, as we have made it for our guests a "home away from home". Your comfort and total satisfaction is what drives us to always improve. Thank you, let's reserve your next vacation with us, when you are ready.
