About Rick Altra

Come visit our home and make it yours for however long you can stay. We are from Michigan, but now live in the Keys year round. The weather in the Keys makes it beautiful year-round, and we love the blue and green colors of the ocean. Leave the snow behind for a weekend, a week, or a month or more.

Rick Altra purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Rick Altra chose Cudjoe Key

We love this property because we can sit on the deck and fish, or just gaze at the Ocean and island located right off the end of the canal. You have everything you need and more, which is so much better than staying in a hotel!

What makes this cottage unique

Being located in the lower keys on the small island of Cudjoe Key, you can get away from the traffic and noise of Key West or larger islands, but....you are close enough to take a beautiful drive and be amidst the best of everything the islands have to offer. A month is still not long enough to see everything, so keep coming back year after year.

This house was very nice and we enjoyed it.

  • 4 of 5

The house was great and so was the owner. The gated community was good but security stays up your butt like you are being watched all the time !

They say pet friendly but no pets allowed within 50 feet of the pool deck or near the hot tub ( and they are watching with surveillance ) and make no allowances for service animals which I have ! A crazy women near the pool side of the street called security when she seen my dog and started screaming at my husband about the dog and then called police !

This was a bit dramatic all because of a service dog ! So ask to see the DO NOT signs for Venture Out before booking !

This place was everything I had hoped it would be and more!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean and safe (24 hr guard gate) with nice furnishings on a wide canal. Cold ac with stackable W/D and stocked kitchen.

Nice boat ramp with easy excess to the Gulf and the Atlantic for great fishing. Marina with gas bait and whatever else you might need. Felt safe to walk around at night and leave my boat and trailer.

Really enjoyed this place and will definitely be back.

Thanks again

Russell

Great location, nice house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed for a week at the end of July. The house is on secure property with a pool, store, etc. There's also the water right outside the back door. My kids had so much fun fishing on the back porch area. The kitchen has most item needed to cook meals so it cuts down on eating out. The AC is cold. The bed in the master bedroom could use a new mattress as it's very noisy more than uncomfortable. The TV is limited as well but you can bring a fire stick if you have one or use apps on a tablet device. Truthfully, we were so busy enjoying the Keys and Key West that we hardly turned the TV on. All in all we enjoyed staying in this development and house. It's 20 miles to Key West and right next to Big Pine as well. Great location, nice place to stay.
