About The Owner

Family of 2 boys who love the neighborhood. We love going to our beach, snorkeling in the bay, and seeing the manatee and dolphin playing in the marina. We also enjoy trying different dishes from the many restaurants in the area.

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Key Largo

We chose this home in Key Largo to be close to Broward County. Also, our home is only 90 minutes to the Ft. Lauderdale Airport.

What makes this house unique

Our real sand beach is rare in the Keys and we love swimming in it. Snorkeling from the beach to the boat area is wonderful. You also have plenty of PRIVATE room in our home which is on the corner lot directly in front of the boat basin with complete water views, yard, boat area and beach. We are only a few miles from John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, which is an amazing water paradise. Be sure to take the glass bottom boat or the snorkeling trip to the reef...unbelievable. Come and enjoy our home and you will have hundreds of great vacation photos from our HGTV Beach Bungalow.

What a gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

So HAPPY this house became available. I could not have found a more perfect spot to spend the month of April for my daughters' wedding.

I LOVED the beach, the sunsets at the marina, the pina coladas at Snappers, bike riding EVERYWHERE, the outdoor shower, view from the house on rainy days, the view from master bedroom, friendly neighbors and other renters I met and spent time with, QUIET neighborhood. I really did not want to leave!!

The only negative I have is the bed pillows. I travel with my own and the ones in the master were fine but the kids complained about the ones in the other bedrooms.

Julie was very nice to rent from. She text me to make sure I had arrived and warned me about speeding. Everything was clean and stocked really well. Hopefully I will be able to go back in the near future.

Where do you live? Cary, NC

My wife and I spent the month of March 2016 in this great place. It had everything you needed and the owners were very responsive and enjoyable to get to know. It also had good luck. I caught five bone fish and my first permit on this trip. Our daughter and son in law visited the keys for the first time and my son in law caught a tarpon estimated to be 130 lb. My daughter saw two manatees up close in the private marina right across the street from the house. One of my most favorite places was the outdoor shower. I took at least one shower and some days two there for 31 straight days. The sunsets were incredible. The private beach rarely had anyone there but us. Check out Key Lime Cafe at the end of the street. Roadside place with great food and good prices. Best Cracked Conch and fish tacos. Great vacation.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in need of a relaxing get away and this tropical setting was absolutely perfect. The home is situated on the best property site in the subdivision. From the gulf view with amazing sunsets to the park right across the street to the beach area steps away, we could not have asked for a more perfect spot to refresh ourselves. The home itself is so light & airy with interesting decorator touches. Everyone in the neighborhood was so friendly and it was very dog friendly. Our little doxie Walter just loved being outside and going for walks. The home's location made it easy to sample so many wonderful places to eat and visit any & all of the Keys attractions . For us that went from the Everglades to Key West and many things I between. But we did not have to leave our little piece of paradise to enjoy ourselves. We utilized the kayaks at the home for pleasure & fishing. Why there was even a manatee we saw quite often just across the street from us. This location has it all & will not disappoint. Thanks Julia, it was the greatest stay we ever had and we so hope we can come back again soon.

Fantastic Home, Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

The home is in excellent shape, location is to perfect. We have rented many homes and never had such a good experience. The owner went over and above with the quality and openness. The beach and boat ramp are just want we wanted, close to fun restaurants, great neighbors. We would recommend this home very highly, but we do not want to share it (its to good).

HGTV home was even better in person!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Key Largo. The home is better than on TV, and the lot is amazing. We would have coffee on the front lawn and take walks each morning. In the evenings, we had happy hour in the adirondack chairs and of course watched the sunsets. The owners have the home well stocked. We didn't need to get one thing when we arrived but our clothes and groceries. Thanks for an amazing stay...and we are looking forward to coming there for our next vacation. (And our dog loved it too!)
