Open Water Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Have you ever read reviews where the person starts out by saying something like 'I didn't really want to write a review because I wanted to keep this place to myself'. I always thought that those type of comments were a little on the selfish side. I mean if you stayed some place that you really liked then why not write a nice favorable review right? Then my wife and I stayed about 11 nights in the Garden Villa at Sue's Promise last month in January. Now I don't think those comments are so selfish any more. However I do not mind sharing. Sue's Promise is a private tropical beach house. It has 2 downstairs Villas. Owner is Charlie and his wife Terry. They are SO nice. Best of all Sue's Promise is NOT ON A CANAL. If you know anything about the Keys the vast majority of vacation rentals are although advertised as waterfront are actually located on some small canal with the neighbors right on top of you. Not at Sue's Promise though. This is a real open water front beauty. Very private as well. I used to live for many years in the Caribbean on an island off the coast of Honduras and I must say that the foliage (coconut palms, sea grapes, orchids and etc.) and wild/sea life (iguanas, spotted rays, colorful tropical fish, manatees and etc.) are very similar right there at Sue's Promise. We felt like we were 'back home'. The Garden Villa itself is good sized and very adequately stocked with start up supplies of basic essentials. So nice not to have to run to the store immediately for coffee or whatever. Needless to say we will be returning hopefully sometime this year. Thanks again Charlie and Terry!! What a gem you have......

Christmas in the keys

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were lucky enough to rent the bay villa over Christmas week. We had a wonderful time. The villa was very nice and comfortable. Charlie and Terry were great host and made us feel very welcome. The villa is very well stocked and has comfortable seating inside and out. And a beautiful view out across the water. We didn't want to leave but we will be back.

Peaceful, Easy Feeling in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Bay Villa for our week long honeymoon.... WOW...absolutely incredible! Charlie and Terry were sooooo friendly and welcoming and are the perfect hosts. Everyday we would see different marine life at the dock, the kayaks were put to good use and the cottage was well furnished and stocked. We will definitely be back with our children! A huge thank you to Charlie and Terry for making our honeymoon so memorable and for sharing your slice of paradise with us!

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I cannot say enough about Sue's Promise, as well as Charlie and Terry, the owners. We just got back from our second holiday at Sue's Promise. This year we rented the Bay Villa and it was amazing! It has everything you could possibly need. Charlie has the place stocked with everything to get you going for week (coffee, laundry detergent, dish soap, etc). The whole place is so comfortable and welcoming. We spent the week fishing off the dock, sunbathing, snorkeling and watching the wildlife. There are iguanas that roam the property and sun themselves on the dock. From the dock you can see schools of Parrot fish, barracudas, and a wide variety of rays. When we did want to venture off the property, we were located within 10 mins of so many amazing restaurants and sites.

I could not recommend this place enough! It is its own slice of paradise, yet still centrally located to all that the Keys has to offer.

Lovely peaceful holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely, clean and had a well fitted out kitchen with a full size cooker with oven, a washing machine and tumble dryer and a large fridge/freezer which dispensed ice. Washing liquid etc were supplied. The villa had its own patio with chairs and table, and the access to the dock and sea outside were easy so we could swim and snorkel. The owner was helpful and informative giving us useful information about shops and local attractions. We had a really good holiday and a very restful Christmas and New Year at the villa and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

Amazingly Peaceful!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the time my family and I arrived we found it to be very peaceful and serene. My toddler loved swimming off the dock and seeing all the beautiful fish and marine life.
