We used every square inch of this property and loved it! Pool was perfect for relaxing beside the tiki bar and the dock was perfect for our boats. Captain Jay is a MUST charter if you head down!! Michelle was a joy to work with!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Property is very conveniently located. Close to beach, shopping and restaurants. A bit of a trek through canals to open water, but if that's the worst part of the day...no complaints.

Sherry and Jay are terrific hosts, helped with launching the boat, and checked on us periodically.

We will be back!!

Everything you could imagine and then some

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the 2016 mini season and the property was nothing short of amazing. Our trip started by Sherry's husband Jay meeting me at the boat ramp, hoping on my boat and showing me the safe way to get to the house by water while my fiancée and others in our party went by land. Once settled in, we headed downstairs to enjoy the tiki hut to relax and enjoy the evening. After the first day out on the water, we returned to the house, secured the boat and hopped into the pool (it maybe small but in my opinion perfect size just to cool down and relax after a day on the water) to cool down and enjoy yes another adult beverage. One problem came up while trying to mix our favorite frozen tropical drink. NO BLENDER!!!! OMG!!!! A quick call to Sherry and she was hot on the case. Not more than 30 min had passed and she was at the property to rectify the situation (It was placed in the apartment downstairs by accident). The day was saved. If you are looking for the perfect little house on the water in the Keys this is it. Pool, tiki hut, beautiful deck and easy water access located 1/2 way between Vaca cut and the Seven Mile Bridge. Sherry was nothing short of amazing and very helpful for any of your needs. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants the perfect Keyz experience. We will be returning to this property again next year on our next Keyz adventure.

Nick, Merrilyn, Chad, Jen and Chris
