A great, relaxing vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for the month of December (through the holidays). We loved it. We loved having such easy access to our boat and both the ocean and gulf. We were able to ride bikes to three local bars/restaurants as well as fast food etc. The house was actually larger than we expected. My only negative regarding the property was I would love to see the master bedroom bed replaced before we stayed for an entire month again. Other than that we would recommend to everyone! We will definitely consider this property again!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Every year I and my adult son come back here. He flies in from California, and we drive down from Miami with our 18 foot boat on the trailer. We love the place. We launch the boat from a public ramp less than a mile away, and leave it docked the whole time right outside the kitchen/dining room window. We store the trailer on the side of the front yard, there’s room for it and two automobiles.

It’s wonderful to just step on the boat and go. If we just want to relax, a sandbar is right outside the canal, or a public beach another minute away. Depending on the season, we see dolphins or turtles from the boat. Or, we take in some of the best snorkeling in the Keys. Fifteen minutes by boat is Sombrero Reef at the Lighthouse, a spur and groove formation with many fingers and a nice range of depths and sea life, including fish, turtles and rays. Closer still at ten minutes by boat is Coffins Patch at the Stake, where there is a large variety of fish. We also like to go under the bridge to the Gulf side where it is usually calmer, for waterskiing or tubing. Key West or Bahia Honda National Park are short drives away.

It’s very convenient that when we come back from diving, that we have the fully equipped kitchen. We get fresh lobsters, hogfish, or grouper from a local fish store and cook them there. It’s also convenient to be able to throw the wet towels and shirts in the washer and dryer. The place is always very clean and ready to move in. Over the years the owner has put in new a/c units that work really well, and recently redecorated, with a maritime theme. The new flat-screen TV with cable is great, and so is the Wi-Fi. The owner is always accessible by phone. We look forward to visiting here many years to come.

Family Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family, 9 & 10 year old boys, husband and I, had an amazing time! The time the 4 of us spent bonding in paradise was priceless. We took our small boat out almost daily, and many nights too. We went fishing (plenty of cuberetta and yellowtail snapper), lobster searching (found 4 regulation size - yummy!), kayaking, and snorkeling nearby reefs, as well as played at a wonderful sandbar nearby only accessible by water craft. The home provided all the comforts of home. The manager and owner of the property were always available for any questions. I can't wait to go back next summer! The boys, obviously, would like to move to the keys!

winter refuge

We will be back in 2014! The neighbors were great . The owner was very helpful and responsive to any questions. We found the place spotless and no surprises. We would recommend to our family and friends. Cocktails on the deck and a fishing rod. What could be any better?

Lovely, quiet, secure home with lots to do outside

  • 5 of 5

This place is tremendous, has very nice neighbors, and is perfect for really relaxing. Fishing nearby is fantastic. Close to shopping and beaches. You can't beat a barbeque on the back dock. Short distance to Key West and John Pennekamp. The property is clean and charming. The owner has taken the time to put together a book and other info on nearby restaurants and attractions to make your stay easy and worry free. The photos of the house and the area don't do it justice. You have to be there to feel the lovely breeze and the cool and calming atmosphere in the house after a long day in the sun. A trip to see the key deer at dusk or dawn is a must. I hope to return again and again.
