About Walkabout Retreats Vacation Rentals owned by Shannon Dutcher

I designed this house and completed it in March 2010. It replaced a home that I lost in hurricane George in 1998. I love providing families with a great vacation experience and I have been doing that for 13 years at the Tropical Paradise which is located next door.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had ten adults and the house was very functional for that number. Nice dock. 4 decent kayaks for exploring Cudjoe Bay. Close to restaurants, Bahia Honda and Key West. Great, safe biking and running and walking on Blimp Road just across route 1.

Pool and hot tub were appreciated at the end of a long kayak trip or a sweaty day in Key West dodging all the tourists from the cruise ships. Our dog was in the best shape of her life after going up and down the two flights of stairs numerous times during the day.

Anyway, to repeat, we had a great time and everyone wanted us to book a week again next year!

Beautiful home , great location

  • 5 of 5

House was great, and perfect location. Much to do at the house as well as nearby. Everything you needed plus more. Only downfall was the privacy. The workers walked around your property constanty , ( not rude , but I rented a house not a hotel ). Again not really a big deal because everything else was Great.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the Fandango. We do have maintenance and pool service on Wednesday's. We also understand that some people like total privacy so if we get a heads up, we can contact customers before we show up. We do try to tread lightly and let the customers enjoy their vacation. We are also close at hand in case any one needs us. Some of our rental properties are more private than others. Appreciate your comments.

A Diamond in Cudjoe

  • 5 of 5

We spent a one week family vacation at Fandango; 7 adults; May, 2015. The house was very comfortable, kitchen and baths well equipped and user friendly. Location was quiet; with water access steps away. We made use of the kayaks; hot tub and relaxing next to the pool with the constant ocean breeze. Office and grounds personnel were very personable and helpful. This is a great place to kick back and get away from it all. We enjoyed several water activities in Key West; which was an easy 20 minute drive. I highly recommend Hogfish Grill and Stoned Crab (local favorites) for lunch/dinner; their fish tacos are great.

Fandago Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 adults and 7 children in the Fandago house for 1 week. We had such a wonderful time! The property was a true paradise. The house had everything we needed; all we packed was clothes, toiletries, and groceries. Cudjoe Key is a perfect location central to all the fun activities in the Keys; 15min from Key West, 30min from Marathon & Bahia Honda State Park, etc. The kids really enjoyed the house pool, hot tub, beachy sand area by the dock, and kayaks. We also enjoyed snorkeling right off the dock and along the rocks & mangroves. The dock was perfect for our 21ft boat. We cannot wait to return!

One Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Fandango House and had the most amazing vacation ever! The house was beautiful, clean, and convenient to restaurants and shopping. The pool, hottub, kayaks, and bikes gave our kids (10, 14, and 15) plenty to do. It was an easy drive to enjoy the fun of Key West and Duval Street. We swam several times at Bahia Honda State park at the most beautiful beach we had ever seen. Many thanks to Shannon for her wonderful recommendations for things to do and places to eat.

We will hopefully be back again!
