Why Andrew A. Ponnock chose Grassy Key

This is the perfect spot in the Florida Keys. Very quiet and not far from the mainland yet also close enough to key west for day trips. The beach is amazing and the fishing in marathon is exceptional. Very special place.

What makes this Apartment unique

Beach front and quiet location and close to great fishing/lobstering locations.

Relaxing under the palm trees on the beach was so nice. The rental came with kayaks and we were out on those about everyday! The house had everything we needed as far as beach towels, linens, kitchen and bathroom items which made packing a little lighter. The owner Andrew was very helpful and responsive as far as chatting with me about a few questions I had before I booked the house and Rhonda the property care taker was so nice once we arrived. Been visiting the keys for many many years and will definitely be back as long as the owners are renting this house! You cannot beat the view and the nice sandy water!!!

                                                                  Frank M.

                                                                  We loved the place and the fact that we could drive an hour or a bit more to be in

                                                                  Key West or in Key Largo and anyplace in between. Great place to land for a few days and take day trips to the places you want to visit in the keys. Nearby beaches are worth a visit and plenty of good eats nearby too. Clean and modern location. Highly recommend.

                                                                  Not a Beachfront Paradise - Lots of Smelly Seaweed

                                                                  Marty J.

                                                                  We just rented this place in July. Before renting this place, you should know there is a significant seaweed buildup in the cove that prevents you from getting in the water. Once the tide starts to roll out, the seaweed starts to dry in the sun, and there is an overwhelming stench which lasts most of the day and into the evening. It gets better when the tide comes back in, but not much. It was so bad for most of the days we were there, we had to go inside or do other things away from the beach. You are also surrounded by abandoned properties with trash and debris accumulated on the shore. The beach in front of this apartment is fairly clean, but 50 feet to your right and 50 feet to your left are abandoned properties with trash and debris. On one side is an abandoned motel with a swimming pool half full of green water and trash, and the other side is a dilapidated house and motel. The bottom line is you can't enjoy the ocean because of the smelly seaweed and you are surrounded on both sides by trashy, abandoned properties. Think carefully before renting. We were so disappointed with our stay that we cut our vacation short and just left.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Dear renter,

                                                                  I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your rental experience. Unfortunately, you asking for an ocean without seaweed is like asking for a Kansas vacation without tornados or California without earthquakes.

                                                                  We can't control nature and I explained this to you from the beginning.

                                                                  As for the seaweed making it impossible to enter the ocean, well that just isn't so. You put on a pair of water shoes and once past the seaweed you are in ecological heaven. Fish, crabs, stingrays, even small sharks.

                                                                  Our beach is soft sand and spotless, and like the seaweed or tornados, we can't control how our neighbors clean their beaches.

                                                                  The middle keys is very unique and is not for everyone. You could visit key west or key largo a hundred times and still not understand the beauty and uniqueness of the middle keys.

                                                                  Again, we are sad that you were disappointed but in the last two years of rentals, you are the only negative review. I guess the middle keys is not your cup of tea.

                                                                  And just for clarification to anyone who may read your review, you left less than 24 before your intended departure date.
