Beautiful property- Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Feb. 7th-14th. Thea and Kim are some on the nicest people we have met! They have a beautiful property, and Thea has it stocked with anything and everything you could think of! We cooked daily never once was I stuck for a plate/ utensil/ serving dish! As it states in the description they do live on the property, but you would never know it. They are gone most part of the day and even with being home they leave you to yourselves. We did enjoy nightly convo’s! As I told them they had a little slice of heaven 💛?☀️🌴?🐠? hoping we can get back soon! Thanks again!

This is a great place to visit. Thea and Kim are wonderful, welcoming hosts. The house is clean, comfortable and intelligently designed. The living room opens onto a balcony. We would eat our breakfast there and look out on the canal, where pelicans flew by in greeting. It is in a quiet neighborhood, but convenient to everything. The grocery store is a mile or two away. There is even a good restaurant, Sharkey's, in walking distance, a block away. We drove to the Everglades, which is about an hour away and to Key West, which is about 2 hours away. Thea and Kim know the Keys and have many helpful tips on the best restaurants and other places to explore. It is a friendly, relaxing place to stay. I loved the time we spent here. If the ocean is calm and the weather is right, they might take you out in their boat on the ocean, to see the creatures in and around the reefs. It is a most beautiful experience. All of the glowing reviews about this property are true.

  • 5 of 5

This was year 4 spending the holidays with Kim and Thea. We look forward to this vacation all year! The house is amazing and Kim and Thea are like family. We like to spend time outside and we did just that usually until late at nite. The pool area, outdoor kitchen with tv, and dock are just wonderful and so comfortable that we never wanted to be inside. Can’t say enough about this wonderful house and these wonderful, warm hosts. Love you both!

Treasure found in key Largo

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely beautiful and immaculately clean. Thea and Kim are two of the nicest people we’ve met. It’s a great place to relax and sit by the water. I took a nap almost every afternoon in the shade while my wife enjoyed the sunshine. Our boys enjoyed fishing off the dock. Property is just steps away from ocean Divers so it’s very convenient for us to go out with them each morning. After diving we would come back to the room and have lunch at the little bar by the pool . I told my wife it was like staying at a resort but being the only guest there. We also enjoyed cooking out on their nice grill. We enjoyed the outdoor shower. The beds and furnishings were very comfortable and super clean. We have been to key Largo many times but this is by far the nicest place we have stayed. I must say I was a little hesitant about booking a place where the owner lived next door but after meeting the owners I wouldn’t mind having them as permanent neighbors and friends. I can’t say enough about how nice And helpful they are. I must say this was one of the most restful and enjoyable Family vacations we’ve had. Absolutely recommended!!

Wonderful vacation in Key Largo!

  • 5 of 5

We booked a last minute trip and really wanted a place to wind down, relax and enjoy all the Florida Keys has to offer. I chose this home because of the location and also the reviews it already had. I had high expectations and I was not disappointed! The home is large and beautifully appointed, Kim and Thea have wonderful taste and they treat their guests as family. All of the furniture was super comfy and upscale (but not so much that you can't snuggle up on the couch and watch the boats in the harbor). The beds are great, linens are high quality & very soft and pillows are plentiful (I am a pillow snob and usually travel with my own pillow- they had every type of pillow I could possibly want at the house) Comfort level in this home is top notch. The kitchen has everything you will need, we cooked a full dinner and baked a cake from scratch one night and had everything we needed. The home is described as a duplex, however the property has two separate homes that share a yard, pool, dock and deck. Otherwise there are no shared walls and the rental home is very private. You basically have the yard and pool completely to yourselves- The owners are nearby in the event you have any issues or need anything although we never really needed anything because they've already thought of everything and have it all set for you. Kim and Thea do have great suggestions for where to eat, shop, see a sunset, go snorkeling, fishing.... whatever you want to do, just ask them! There are many toys and fun things to do right at the house, we enjoyed using the kayaks and paddle-board, the snorkeling equipment, swimming in the pool, enjoying the jacuzzi, riding the bikes, hanging out by the pool bar in the evenings... Our kids are 18 and 15 and they enjoyed the home as well, especially the pool and activities. I cannot recommend this home enough. Great place! loved it!
