About Bonnie Plyler

My husband started coming down to this complex in the 70's. He bought Unit A1 and owned it for several years, just coming down on weekends. Then in the 90's, while he owned a nursery business and a friend owned a trucking business, they became partners buying property in the complex that went on the courthouse steps. They finished two more buildings, for a total of 15 additional units. My partner and his wife built one of the units for himself and my husband and his first wife built another unit for themselves. His first wife passed away before they were able to live here full time, but in 2008 I married Bob and we lived here in the complex full time. We bought the rental unit from friends who were selling it in 2011 and have been renting it ever since. My husband recently passed away and I am continuing to rent the unit.

Bonnie Plyler purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bonnie Plyler chose Layton

I live in the complex year round and have two rental units in the complex. I love it here.

I am very pleased to be writing the first review for Bob & Bonnie's condo. I don't even know if I could possibly explain how beautiful this Long Key community is. The views from the condo are breathtaking. There are extraordinary water views and balconies on both ends of the condo, as well as spectacular views of palm trees, the beach and the grounds, which are generously filled with beautiful and lavish landscaping. The condo is fully stocked with just about anything you might need.

The beach and the grounds are very peaceful for someone who is looking to get away from it all, which I was. You can enjoy relaxing on the private beach and at the pool during the day, and chat with some of the complex's extremely friendly residents and other renters. I have made friends here and honestly could not have asked for anything better. There is also a 3 mile pier that you can walk where you are surrounded by water on both sides.

There is no stress here. It is the ultimate relaxing vacation. The best I have ever been on. If you are looking for a gorgeous place to spend your vacation where you will meet friendly people and still have time to yourself in your quiet condo if that's what you're looking for, then this is the place to be. I am looking to move to The Keys and after visiting several complexes, this is my absolute favorite! I wouldn't want to live anywhere else! I am staying for a month and do not want to go home in 9 days!

It is hard to trust some vacation rental sites (believe me, I know) but here you get exactly what you pay for. No hassles, no issues; just the relaxation that you are looking for. I highly recommend that you stay in Bob's condo. You will not regret it! And it just may be the best vacation of your life!

Car: recommended

There is a Theatre of the Sea with sea animal shows just minutes north of here and a Dolphin Research Center south of us where you can swim with the dolphins and watch shows. Marathon is 14 miles south of us where most of the shopping areas are. Marathon has a golf course. Many good restaurants just minutes either way from the condo. There is a tennis court, heated pool, and a long sandy beach on the property. There is a large tiki with a big gas grill, refrigerator, deep fryer, and micorwave for all to use. New pool deck, pool chairs, and new paving stones under the tiki. Boat docking is first come, first serve. Walking/fishing bridge within walking distance. Very quiet and relaxing atmosphere, very tropical landscape. Once you have stayed here, you will want to return again and again.
