About Mindy McIlroy

I am an avid traveler and am fortunate to have a career that affords me the opportunity to visit many wonderful places, mostly urban communities. I am from a small town in upstate New York, but am attracted to big cities - so I guess I am a city girl, however, I still enjoy the peace and quiet of the small town. I guess that is why I decided to buy my Key Largo vacation home so I can escape the big city of Miami from time to time.

Mindy McIlroy purchased this house in 2011

Why Mindy McIlroy chose Key Largo Area

I decided to purchase this bungalow when I drove past it while driving thru different neighborhoods looking for the perfect vacation residence. I was drawn in by the charm of the picket fence and quaint details this home has to offer. The owner of my future vacation home had renovated the bungalow with a new kitchen, new roof, covered parking and more, so in short, the home had zero maintenance items to attend to, which was very attractive to me. It was a hassle free purchase and I very much enjoyed decorating the home and hope you will enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

Outdoor shower, separate secured shed so you can easily store your water sports gear, double lot so you can store your trailered boat or wave runners on the property, fully fenced property, well behaved pets welcome!

Bad for Business (Double wide trailer with bad ethics)

  • 1 of 5

We were extremely disappointed in our stay at the Key Largo Bungalow. We feel we were cheated by the property owner. Our stay unfortunately coincided with Hurricane Matthew. Our difficulties with the property manager started before we even flew into Florida. We inquired about the Hurricane and what to do/what would happen if the Hurricane interfered with our trip. The property manager essentially laughed at us and said the Hurricane would not be coming to Florida (this turned out to be a blatant disregard for my family's safety). So we flew into Florida based on that local knowledge. We had three days in Orlando before we were to head to The Keys. At this point reports indicated that the Hurricane was definitely headed for Florida. It took us almost 48 hours to get in touch with the property manager. When we did we decided that we would head down and see what the storm did. We were told "not to worry about it" and "if anything happens we'll make it right". We arrived at the property to find that our "Adorable Bungalow" was actually a double wide trailer with a nice yellow paint job. Obviously just about the last place you'd want to be during a Hurricane. In addition to that the property was stuffy and somewhat uncomfortable to us. As soon as we arrived in The Keys a Tropical Storm Warning was issued and the Governor announced that people on the coast should consider evacuating. We stayed the first night as the wind began to pickup. When morning arrived we decided to leave the storm zone. We called the property manager who is based in Miami and were told that they understood and they were concerned about the hurricane too. We were also told again "not to worry about it". When the storm finally passed causing major damage along the east coast we called to settle the finances for our one night stay. At this point we were told that the storm wasn't a direct hit to The Keys and we would not receive any refund for any portion of our stay. We feel cheated and misled by this experience. We understand that most other properties in the area did offer refunds. We feel strongly that this property manager has poor business ethics. I would highly recommend choosing another location instead of this one. We have stayed at dozens of VRBO properties and they have all been wonderful properties with lovely people managing them. This property did not fit either of those descriptions. PLEASE CONSIDER STAYING AT A DIFFERENT PROPERTY!!!!

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that you feel disappointed with your stay in Key Largo. Time-to- time South Florida and the Florida Keys are faced with the potential threats of a tropical depression and/or hurricanes. As stated prior to you traveling to South Florida it was hard to predict the path of such storms. The media does their best to communicate to the public, giving everyone advance notice to make their own decisions for the wellbeing and safety of their families. Hurricane Matthew in fact didn’t end up hitting South Florida or the Florida Keys. We pride ourselves on Customer Service and Satisfaction for which we ask each guest to sign an agreement listing out all the details for the property prior to their arrival. Under section #9 subsection C, the cancellation states: “No refund is due (or will be made) for inclement weather”. The listing for the bungalow is transparent showing an adorable, charming house in the Florida Keys with multiple photos posted on the site to showcase its beauty. As we didn’t offer a refund, we did offer a future stay to be used within a year.

Charming, comfortable bungalow conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was perfect for our stay in Key Largo. Charming on the outside and impeccably clean on the inside, this property is furnished with very comfortable beds and linens. The fully fenced backyard was useful for our two active toddlers and dog. Conveniently located near Key Largo restaurants and activities, we were minutes from our destinations. Booking was smooth, and the property instructions were clear. The mature landscaping added to the tropical appeal. I highly recommend the property, and I hope we will be able to return soon.

Very cozy top of the keys getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had issues on our first attempt to rent through this site and waiting to be refunded, even though we talked to the listing agent prior to being charged.

We worked with Sandy on making sure the house fit our needs with our large dogs coming with us on this trip. She was excellent to answer my questions and get our reservation in order quickly.

The house was very clean and supplied for our visit. Plenty of room for us and our dogs. The yard being completely fended around the house for us was a huge draw and there are some iffy spots our dogs could probably jump over, but the main yard has a taller sturdier fence that was great to Let them roam freely. Well stocked kitchen and cutlery plates etc made dining and cooking in the house very easy with not needing to buy the basics. Games and towels blankets stocked and in plentiful supply.

You are very close to some good spots to watch the sunset and grab a drink and bite to eat. You can also walk to a few places for breakfast and to rent boats or kayaks and two beach options just north and south. If you are staying in the top of the keys this is an excellent place to shack up.

Fabulous and easy!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, just perfect for the four of us and our two dogs (Thanks Mindy for allowing our pooches to come and stay, it is SO hard to find places that allow that). The house was well supplied with everything you need to cook, clean up after your stay, and relax. Minutes from Pennecamp, great restaurants, and many local dive centers. We really enjoyed our stay, highly recommend it, and will likely be back again soon! :)

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is all it is advertised to be. We arrived and found it to be as neat as a pin. Everything inside was easy to hand, and there were no mysteries in finding or operating anything. The cottage is shaded by Gumbo Limbo trees so it is cool, as is the yard. AC and ceiling fans helped with that of course.

I knew from the reviews that some folks had their dogs with them during their stay - I could not tell. There wasn't a dog hair in the house or any evidence outside. It was convenient to most of what you'd look for during your stay, restaurants, groceries, gas and convenience stores. By the way the recommendation for Lucy's was spot on. Its a great restaurant and only a five minute walk away.

The washer and dryer were a bonus, especially for towels and swimsuits. There was plenty of room for kayaks and snorkel gear.

I was happy, and the family was happy.
