About Maria and Leo Macias

Leo and I had a dream of having a home in the Florida Keys. Twenty years ago our dream came true when we purchased the land. Leo is a builder and took this project on. He designed the house and was there almost everyday to make sure is was built to his satisfation.

Maria and Leo Macias purchased this house in 2001

Why Maria and Leo Macias chose Winston Waterways

Key Largo is a beautiful little town that is close to our main home yet a totally different world. When we arrive in Key Largo all of our stress and worries go away. It is a little strip of land in the middle of the ocean. We often refer to it as driving into the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Since our property is on an acre of land, you have the ability to drive around the property. This is especially convenient when you are trying to load the boat with ice, bait, gear, etc. You can just drive up to the boat.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 and our dog spent a wonderful week at Maria and Leo's home. This house could not have been more perfect for us. I planned the vacation so when the rest of our party arrived, they could not believe this was the house. We joked all week long that we were rich!

The bedroom were spacious and very comfortable. The views from every angle are spectacular. We have never felt more at home while on vacation. Everything in the house was in great condition and exactly as pictured.

Maria was completely wonderful to deal with in all aspects and very accommodating. I would recommend this home to anyone and everyone I know. If we return to Key Largo, I know I will be trying to book this home for our vacation.

This house is also at the perfect location. It seemed everytime we were heading somewhere, we were only a couple of miles away. John Pennekamp State Park is just up the road. Dolphin's Cove was barely down the road. The Publix and Kmart are conveniently located and the house is fully equipped for any cooking you may want to do.

Thank you so much to Maria and Leo for opening their beautiful home to us!

Even better than the pictures show!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 2 kids ages 6 and 2) stayed for a long weekend in the Keys. We were a bit nervous going so shortly after Irma, but the home and property were in great shape. It is private and secluded with a waterfront view just as the pictures show. Great local places to eats. Swam with the dolphins and visited the state park which were both less than 5 minutes away. Maria was great to deal with and I would reccomend this home to anyone looking to get away.

Beautiful waterfront home!

  • 5 of 5

This home has spectacular views. It is spacious and very comfortable. It is well maintained and very clean. I particularly loved the kitchen. It is fully stocked with all the items needed to cook a family meal. We loved the peace and serenity that this luxurious home offers. We enjoyed using the hot tub after a day of fishing.

My husband and son spent much of their time fishing off the dock.

The owners were friendly and easy to reach. We have already planned our next trip to this wonderful Key Largo home.

Excellent Home With Direct Water Access and Near Pennenkamp State Park!

  • 5 of 5

We have been spending 6 to 8 weeks in the Keys each winter for last 5 years. Previous years we owned a motorhome so we stayed in RV Resorts/Parks in the Keys but this year we tried something different. We stayed in Leo and Maria's home in Key Largo from mid January to Mid March - what a great place! The home is directly on the water and across from Pennenkamp State park. The home is well kept with a recently remodeled kitchen and new appliances. Nice views of the water and great patio area on the lower floor with a hot tub/spa.

We were used to moving every few weeks in the motorhome so we were somewhat concerned about staying "entertained" for two months in one location. Not a problem! Key Largo is only a short distance from the Everglades, Miami, Biscayne National Park and the remainder of the Keys. Key West is possible in a day and we drove down just to visit and wander the streets. We rented Kayaks for the duration of our stay and were on the water three or four times a week depending on the weather. This is a great location for water activities since the home has a launch ramp and boat dock. It took longer to apply sunscreen than it did to get the Kayaks in the water. Only a short paddle and we were in Pennenkamp Kayak trails. In addition there is always some organized activity in the keys each weekend,, Seafood festivals, Nautical Flea Markets, Food Fests, Biking, etc.

The home is within walking distance of Pennenkamp so we walked into the park many times as well as walked to many of the excellent restaurants nearby. All in all we had a great time and will do it again if we have the chance!

PS: Refund check for our deposit actually beat us home!!

Spacious and Private

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Key Largo area for over 25 years and have experienced many different accommodations from townhomes, condos and various private homes. This property is the best that we have stayed. The house is very spacious and has been accessorized very nicely. The beds are very comfortable not like some that have seen their tired days. The kitchen is well equipped and has all of the necessary utilities. We liked having the separate ice maker. If you want privacy this place has it all. It is very spacious outside and there is minimal boat traffic. Tremendous views of the mangroves. The outside downstairs provided great space to gather with friends and family who visited us during our stay for the month of February. Plenty of space to park cars for the guests also. The grandkids loved the hot tub.The owners were very responsive and it was really nice to receive our security deposit in a couple of weeks after the rental....not like some other properties. Highly recommend Villa La Paloma for all seeking privacy with great accommodations. We will be back

John Pennekamp State Park
Car: recommended

This property is within the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, America's first underseas park. The state park has canoe and kayaking trails that lead to our property. Canoeing or kayaking to the park's visitor’s center is a short distance away. The park offers scuba diving, snorkeling, glass bottom boat, motor boat rental, swimming, kayaking and a 30,000 gallon salt water aquarium. Divers from around the world visit John Pennekamp State Park to explore the spectacular living reefs of the Florida Keys and experience diving amidst the area's extraordinary wildlife.

Key Largo locals consider their home the Diving Capital of the World but the island is nearly as famous as a sport-fishing destination. There is lots of fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, boating and many other water activities available within minutes of property. The property is located minutes by car from mainland Florida.

Other Activities: parasaling, kayaking, conoeing
