It is so important that absolutely no one gets hurt during your vacation stay, it is imperative that you pay attention before you act. Go over all the safety rules and always do the safe way always. 1.On a jet ski you never follow behind in case they stop you will not run them over, you must always wear a life jacket on a jet ski. 2. Always keep other jet ski in sight so you do not hit them. 3. Go over some signals so you can communicate with each other. 4. Carry a cell phone for emergency contact, you get lost, you brake down or the commander wants to call you to bring jet ski home/ time is up. 5. Jet skies are a lot of fun, they are like small boats you must not miss use them be safe. 6. Watch the video on operation of the jet skies 7. You must replace the fuel that you burn out or we will charge accordingly. Have a great time, enjoy.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week in the keys with my brother and sister and their kids. The house was big a roomy with plenty of space for everyone. We loved the location which was close, 20 minutes from Key West, but far enough away and secluded from the crowds. We enjoyed the pool and took advantage of the kayaks and jet skis that were at the dock off the back yard. Both Fred and Alva were great hosts and made sure we have everything we needed. Thanks again for a great week.

simply perfection. relaxing, exciting and pleasant

  • 5 of 5

my stay here was mesmerizing. The house was beatifully clean, the exuberant entertainments such as swimming in the pool, riding jet skees, knee boarding, longboarding by the ocean, cliff jumping, fishing on the boat and hanging by the dock where i EVEN SAW DOLPHINS, where all so so exciting for me and family. I have vacationed to many other houses in the keys, but not one can compare to my stay here, words cant describe how enjoying this place is. IF ONLY THERE WAS A 6TH STAR.

Can’t ask for a better place to stay than this!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the Royal Keys House was excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone with a desire for a good time or slimply wanting to experience one of the worlds most intriguing attractions at one of the most eye popping and entertaining places to stay. I would like to point out what a great first impression the Royal Keys House has. I was instantly amused by the variety of accessories this house had to offer, ranging from a spectacular pool to jet-skis, boats and much more. I stayed at the Royal Keys House with 9 friends without any problem concerning lack of room/space for each of us. The interior of the house was spotless and made us feel as if it was our own home giving us an incredibly comfortable notion. Overall i would definitely stay at the Royal Keys House again, it was beyond worth my time and money.

Our recent booking was a horrific experience. I have never experienced such misrepresentation of a property as I did with this vacation rental.

What we experienced upon arrival:

1. All seven garbage cans were overflowing with garbage with flies and a rotten odor. There were no receptacles to put our garbage in the entire stay and smell was over whelming every time you opened the front door.

2. Trash (bottles, broken coolers, cups etc) and clutter (old molding, old hoses, broken chairs, old grill etc) everywhere on the property, especially under the carport.

3. Paint peeling off the house, rotten (weak) wood on front steps leading to the front door.

4. Screens on back patio had holes in them and the back patio and table were filthy. There was a missing slat on the second story balcony and our 3 year old almost fell off the second story (a clear safety issue)

5. Every rug in the house was dirty ( the owner asked me to go to Beall’s and purchase rugs for him and he would reimburse me).

5. There was thick mold in the kitchen and all 3 bathrooms.

6. No clean towels, no toilet paper in the bathrooms (not even a starter roll). We had to wash towels when we first got there.

7. The kitchen was dirty. We had to clean the refrigerator, sink and stove before using.

8. The jacuzzi on the second floor had broken wood trim that exposed all of the electrical components (a clear safety issue). The water in the jacuzzi had been sitting stagnant for awhile (without chlorine) and had a odor to it. I called the manager and he instructed me on how to drain the jacuzzi and refill it with fresh water and had me treat the water myself. It had rat feces all over the upstairs balcony and hot tub.

9. The pool was green upon arrival. I had to shock that myself too.

10. The dock out to the water had loose boards and rusty nails sticking up.

11. The manager misrepresented the cost and use of the boat and jet skis. They were left with virtually no gas (we barely made it to the marina, at our own expense)

12. The entire house was dirty upon arrival.

The owner’s response to my complaints was an unacceptable excuse of how we were the last guests through their busy lobster season (which started in July, 2 months ago). He did not have the house cleaned before our arrival. He does not maintain the property during the season or after the season. The pictures must have been taken many years ago because they are a complete misrepresentation of the properties current status.

Owner's Response: There was a mandatory evacuation for the Florida Keys due to Hurricane Irma, This guest was not even aware there was a Hurricane out there. We very kindly asked the guest to leave a day early due to the threatening weather approaching the next day. Due to the circumstances we had no choice but to remove all water crafts from the water and demand guest to leave. With that being said she said she was going to give us a bad review, we take our reviews very seriously. We respect all of our guest so I'm not going to trash our guest name but I will say the review she left she put a lot of thought into it for the most damage as possible. We did refund the guest for the water craft and a full extra day. She did tare us up as she said, She should win an Oscar for that review. We apologize for such a bad review we are also very proud of all the 4 and 5 star reviews we hold.
