Really Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Debbi and David we had a great stay. The tropical landscaping were more than we could ever expect and very private. The fenced in backyard was perfect for our Cleo. Really enjoyed your artwork Debbi. You can tell the house was decorated by an artist! Who else could make a red couch fit right in! Hope to come again.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We came to the Keys for mini lobster season. What fun. The house was just what we hoped for. Having the boat ramp onsite made it very convenient. The tropical bathroom was cool. And all the little extras I found helped, like the Keuriig Coffee & condiments Not very far from Key West when we wanted a little night life. Wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely will go back again. Only thing we hate were the summer mosquitoes but got use to them. Guess comes with the paradise territory. As they say down there "No Worries"

Perfect Choice for us..

  • 5 of 5

I am all about the fishing so the onsite boat ramp and dock were perfect and convenient. Nearby barracuda flats fishing and wrecks for yellow tail. Snapper off the dock. My wife is all about the property and loved the tropical bath and shower. Every detail she says was there. From coffee to laundry detergent to cotton sheets. The tropical gardens were amazing not at all what we expected. Very private. Dog friendly. The Big Green Egg to use was a nice surprise for my catch. Definitely head here again ASAP! Thanks D&D

We absolutely loved the location and the home. It was very quaint and comfortable. Excellent choice. We were able to keep our boat in the water and go fishing without any issues. I definitely would recommend this vacation home to anyone. The owners were very accommodating and helpful. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Amazing Amenities Abound

  • 5 of 5

When I was presented with the opportunity to be the caretaker of this beautiful property, I thought I was dreaming. This place is amazing! There are coconut trees, banana trees, sea grapes, flowering trees, and even a 100 plus year old tree that is home to even more exotic plants. I had never seen a real pineapple plant. I did not know how they grew, and when I saw the actual plant, I was delighted. Everyday I discover something new here.

I spent yesterday fishing off the dock. Water so clear, I watched the fish bite, and reeled them in. I think today I am going to take the kayak out for a spin through the canal and out onto the bay.

I hope you choose to come stay - I am here to help. I have been coming to the Keys and Key West for 25 years. It is so fun to go enjoy Key West, but being about to come back to this quite piece of heaven – it’s the icing on the cake.

The house is amazing – top of the line everything, and the owners have gone out of their way to make your stay extraordinary! Come on down, I’ll teach you how to make a key lime pie like a real conch!

Excellent tropical getaway without the high expense.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful scenery with so much to do for anyone looking for a quiet get away! My husband and I stayed for a week, loved the clean well kept home. Much attention to the grounds and your stay. We were in contact with the owners the entire time of our stay. They were always available to take your call. Also was given recommendations to local attractions and restaurants. My husband and I are looking forward to going back. Thank you David and Debbie!!
