About Waddys and Ralph Cosme

My wife and I have lived in Florida for the past 26 years. We enjoy traveling and boating. We've loved visiting the keys with family and friends and hope you share the same experience.

Waddys and Ralph Cosme purchased this house in 2013

Why Waddys and Ralph Cosme chose Cudjoe Key

We choose this property mostly because its location. Cudjoe Key is relaxing, it has great fishing spots as well as a variety of day activities for the ocean lovers and restaurants. Cudjoe is very close from Key West and Marathon which allow us to go into town for breakfast or just enjoy the night life.

What makes this house unique

The home sits on a dead end with minimal traffic. There is great parking for cars and a trailer. Nearby boat ramp available. We love being on a corner unit to enjoy the backyard and beautiful sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that we absolutely LOVED your home. Thank you for sharing it with us!! It really did feel like home and not just a rental house. It was perfectly decorated and so cozy. We will definitely be back the next time we visit the Keys.

Thanks so much!

Awesome property-quiet, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ralph and Waddys beach house for 3-1/2 months, and we were sad to leave. The house has everything you might possibly need and a super well-equipped kitchen. The beds and bedding were very nice and comfortable. The house was extremely clean. Internet was fast and reliable. Easy access from the canal dock to open water. The rooms are generously sized and the open concept kitchen, dining, living room that opened to the large covered porch made the house feel so much bigger. We loved being able to enjoy our morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the porch, catching a glimpse of both sunrise and sunset. Truly a 5-star rental. We look forward to returning next year!

Beautiful getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun while renting this amazing house! The outdoor space is gorgeous on the water. I loved the hammocks and decor! We went on a fishing charter that left from just 2 houses down which was tons of fun and very convenient! Easy drive down into key west but nice to have a quiet relaxing spot to come back to! Waddys was great with local recommendations on what to do and where to eat. Highly recommend staying here!! THANK YOU TO THE COSMES!!

The Nicest We Have Stayed In

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Key cottages several times in the past, and this Cudjoe Key place was the nicest of them all. The decor was super tasteful and everything was very comfortable and homey. My wife got 9 books read in the early morning breeze on the deck. Cudjoe is the best Key to stay on, being close to Big Pine Key and an easy drive to Key West. Having such a comfortable place to call temporary home makes the stay perfect. We hated to leave. The owners were kind and helpful problem solvers when ever we needed help. We hope to stay here again soon.

This was an especially memorable stay for our son's 18th birthday who loves the Keys and fishing. The house was perfect, clean, and very comfortable. The owner's gracious and sweet. Our 4 little Dachshunds came along as well and they loved it! By the way, the backyard was great for relaxing and taking in the sun while sipping a glass of wine. I would not hesitate to come to stay at this wonderful home again!

One month of perfection

  • 5 of 5

We had 30 days of great fun at this home. The house is centrally located and within 30 min. of what any one would want. We spent a lot of time at the beach, shopping Key West, going to every garden, eco park, and museum we could find. There are a lot of them. There were five adults and due to the spacious size of this home we had no problems with privacy or places to escape to in and around the house. We very much enjoy a clean home and this home was clean and had everything we needed. There was enough extra sheets, towels, and beach towels. The kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked most of our meals. The A/C works well and with all the ceiling and floor fans the house was comfortable. There is also ton's of art all over this home making you feel like it is a home and not some stuffy poorly decorated hotel or condo. Coming home from the beach is a snap the way the house is set up. There is an outdoor shower and hoses to wash up. Right off the car port is a large storage area where you can store your beach gear and wash your towels/clothes. This was great for us because it really helps keep the upper part of the house sand and dirt free. The upper deck has nice outdoor furniture for six and two ceiling fans you can turn on for comfort, amazing! We rented the Kayaks from the neighbors "kind and friendly", which was most excellent and no one will beat their price. We spent many hours touring. We had no problems while staying in this house. It is a great house and I know you will be taken care of because we were.
