Newer Clean Home

  • 4 of 5

The home was great, exactly as described and extremely clean. Only complaint is the "Security" office. They do not communicate between shifts which caused several issues and wasted time with my boat (I pulled it to a different marina almost daily) and visitors.

Owner's Response: Hi Phil, Thank you for the review of our home. We are happy that you found our home clean and as advertised. We apologize for the inconvenience you encountered with the resort's security regarding your boat. It is a large facility and sometimes communications can be lacking. We will pass your concerns along to the resort management and request that they address the lack of communications. Mike & Carol, Owners

Every thing was in working order and clean! Nice and quiet community.

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly what we needed. Close enough to Key West for a quick 30 minute drive. The community was nice and quiet. Even having to leave 24 hours early because of hurricane Irma we enjoyed our stay. Praying for everyone with hurricane Irma. The security guards were very pleasant and great at their job. The pool and saltwater swimming area was always kept clean. If the hurricane spares the house we will be back!!!! We will be repeat renters.

This welcoming home was perfect for our family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This property was warm and welcoming. The property description was accurate and the home was perfect for our family of five. The only minor inconvenience, and this is very minor, the ice maker was not working. This was fixed easily by getting ice at the general store in Venture Out. The bikes were much loved and a great way to get to the pool or other homes where friends were staying. The kayaks were available for use and a quick jaunt across the street to put in at the canal allowed for beautiful floats around Cudjoe. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans, making preparing meals big and small a breeze. We loved the outdoor living space with the spacious porch and the large space under the home with the grill, shed and a very comfy hammock, perfect for a nap in the warm afternoon breeze. We will be booking this home in the future for our next vacation to the Keys!

Splendid time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this lovely home for a long weekend in April. We had a splendid time and enjoyed our time in Cudjoe Key immensely. This house was perfect and provided everything we needed. The HOA is a little strict when it comes to parking (only one car at the house) but it was not too much of a bother. The community had everything we needed and we would not have left other then for eating out and exploring. We will definitely be booking again.

A Slice of Heaven right here in Florida!

  • 4 of 5

This vacation home was clean and so inviting! We were instantly at home and comfortable here! The resort has many amenities to enjoy...walks to and on the beach, biking the neighborhood and area, swimming in the pool, enjoying the common areas near the water, watching wildlife, enjoying the cool breezes on the deck, kayaking, playing tennis and bocce, just to name a few. We also got to a couple recommended restaurants, found a new coffee shop near the Winn-Dixie on Big Pine Key and grilled at home, discovered Pidgeon Key, returned to lovely Key West and Bahia Honda State Park. We'll definitely be back - we need more island time!
