About Waterfront Keys Realty
We are a retired couple with a vacation home in a great location. We enjoy traveling and sight seeing. We especially love the Florida Keys and try to spend several weeks there each year.
Waterfront Keys Realty purchased this House in 2010
Why Waterfront Keys Realty chose Cudjoe Key
We fell in love with the Florida Keys on our first visit. The tropical weather, attractions and relaxed atmosphere were exactly what we were looking for. To us, this is a tropical paradise with out leaving the US! It is a bonus that we don't have to fly to get here.
What makes this House unique
The resort amenities, The relaxed atmosphere, the tropical weather, the scenery, the open air dining, the fishing and the fun of Key West and .many islands.

Clean, well-equipped, and great central base for Key adventures
House was clean with a well-equipped kitchen and great as more of a "beach" house (close to the water but not by the beach). We appreciated having our own washer and dryer and loved the pool and resort amenities. The location on Cudjoe Key was fairly central to get to either Key West or to Big Pine Key and Marathon Key for other activities. It did seem a little cramped for the 6 of us but that's to be expected for a "beach" house. We'd love to visit again!
Great visit to the Keys
We were glad to see how well the Keys have come back after Hurricane Irma. This home in Cudjoe Key is very centrally located so we were able to go to Key West several days and fishing in the central Keys for a couple days. The home was located in Venture Out Resort and the folks there were very friendly.
Location is perfect.
Very well maintained and equipped. Could not have been more pleased.
Beautiful - Peaceful.
The only thing that could have made it more perfect to give you 5 stars, was if it was in Key West! See you again...soon!
Thank you for the review.
However, we must object to the downgrading of the review due to the location of the home.
Travelers know where the home is located before booking, so to now discount a point on the review is not fair.
If you wanted a rental in Key West, you could have booked a rental there and paid twice the price.
We offer a home away from home with many amenities at a reasonable price. We are conveniently located between Big Pine Key and Key West which is 20 miles away. The location is convenient for visits to Key West, Big Pine Key and Marathon all of which have many attractions and restaurants.
Mike & Carol, Owners
We chose this property because of the amenities and it did not disappoint. We had literally everything we needed to fully enjoy our vacation, from beach supplies to board games to bikes. The extra gear meant no renting equipment, and the fully stocked kitchen (and grill!) meant we could eat at home for health and comfort. We also appreciated the safe and quiet resort. We biked and swam daily there and found everyone to be friendly and relaxed. We've stayed at many VRBO properties and for the price this one is a gem. The owners are quick to respond if you have any questions. Looking forward to a return visit some day!
Newer Clean Home
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.
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.
