About Guillermo and Cecilia

After years of spending countless weekends in the keys, we decided to make our dream a reality. Our family really enjoy the water and the natural wonder that is the Florida Keys. We have worked tirelessly to make our home feel special and welcoming and would love to share our special place in the sun with our guests.

Guillermo and Cecilia purchased this house in 2014

Why Guillermo and Cecilia chose Key Largo

Secluded location of Pirates Cove. Ground floor concrete home with master suite on first floor (no stairs!). Very peaceful, safe and quiet residential neighborhood. Home is situated about 100 yards from the bay. Great views from the balcony on second floor. Being near the bay, cool breezes blow continuously throughout the day and evening. Covered carport area allows you to have a change of scenery in the afternoons and enjoy the afternoon breezes in shaded area. Enjoy long walks down the serene streets. Small (tiny) but private beach area allows you to wade into the water or just sit on the sand. Boat ramp is 100 feet from the house. Easy to launch your boat or jet ski. House has concrete dock with fish cleaning station and room for boat of up to 22 feet in length. Wide and clear flowing canal. Great for morning swims or just floating around relaxing. Launch kayaks, canoes or our John Boat into the canal and row around exploring the area. Close to many restaurants, bars, and convenience stores, banks and pharmacies. Plentiful sea life with all types of marine species in the area: manatees, tarpon, snook, sea turtles and many other varieties of crabs and fish populate the canal and the bay. Fishing is very good from the dock. Very spacious upstairs area with sleeping accommodations for up to 6. Downstairs has master bedroom, 2 baths and a queen sleeper sofa. Large screened porch area to sit and relax, dine or entertain guests. Gas BBQ provided for grilling your fresh catch or steak.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located. Magnificent neighborhood provides peaceful experience. Ground floor home is great for individuals who cannot climb stairs or those who simply do not like to always have to climb and descend stairs to reach the kitchen and master bedroom. Clean, swimmable canal. New kitchen and laundry room. Large screen TV in family room. Free WiFi Internet and cable TV. Includes use of 2 Kayaks and John Boat. Private and secluded small beach area a few blocks away. Use of new gas BBQ also included.

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

We were here for 8 days early in March and we very much enjoyed our stay. The home was lovely -- tasteful, comfortable, and very well maintained. Guillermo was great to work with. He answered questions and emails promptly, checked to see if everything was okay, and that we enjoyed our stay. Would stay again in an instant. Spent hours in the screen room looking out over the canal.

One comment however -- the upstairs is not really suitable for adults. Very low ceilings, low toilets, not really possible to put two people in the queen bed upstairs without trapping someone in the bed. Obviously the area is suited for children and should be used accordingly.

Owner's Response: We are so very glad you enjoyed your stay. The upstairs does have the sloping roof but we have not had anyone mention that it's been a problem for adults. The smaller room with the queen bed does require you to enter from either the one side or the foot of the bed (and keeps your significant other from slipping away on the opposite side ;-) but the other, larger room does have a queen bed as well with access from both sides. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

We feel so lucky to have stayed in this lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with each room we came upon while exploring the home upon arrival. The kitchen/great room is large and bright with sliding glass doors out to an awesome enclosed porch perched right on the canal. The porch quickly became the center of the house for us where we would have our meals, morning coffee, read the papers, discuss the day and prepare the fishing rods! The master suite is spacious with sizable dresser and mirrored closets that took all our clothes. Upstairs are two nicely furnished rooms and a convenient half bath. One room has a fabulous roofless balcony with breathtaking views. I love this balcony and spent many nights in a rocker watching the stars, satellites and phases of the moon as it turned full over the course of the month we spent in this Key Largo paradise. The kitchen is well appointed and the washer and dryer should have cut our packing in half (next time it will!). Not only is this home an oasis, the neighborhood itself has a lovely character, tucked away from the activities of Key Largo and US 1. The neighbors we met while exploring the nearby canals and walking our dog, were friendly and some had nice tips for us. We would come back to this lovely home in a heart beat. We had a great time in Key Largo and this home was a big part of our experience.

All we can say is 100% fantastic in every aspect. The photos do not do it justice. Three of us stayed for 9 days. The home was immaculate:beautiful fully stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances,plenty of cookware,dishes,spices,etc., bedrooms were spacious and completely comfortable, baths were stocked with plenty of towels,etc, the screened in patio overlooking the canal was a wonderful area to have morning coffee,an evening glass of wine,or just enjoy the view. The canal was clean and full of surprises a daily visit from a couple of manatees, several fish, and a wonderful place to take a swim. There were kayaks, beach toys,beach towels,just about anything you needed. The location is close to everything you need,the neighborhood is quiet ,friendly and secure.

The owner,Guillermo was a delight to deal with,so accomadating and responsive to all inquires in a very timely manner. It was very apparent that he and his family put so much love into this home,that from the moment you walked in you were home.

I have rented vrbo's in the past and this property is a #1.

When in Key largo this is the place for my family.

Best home in Key Largo

  • 5 of 5

The owner Guillermo was fantastic to deal with; he was friendly and accommodating. He responded to every email promptly and answered my questions with great detail, making the process of choosing a home and planning a vacation to an unknown area much easier.

The house was perfect for our family of 4 plus mother-in-law. The bedrooms are roomy. The property was clean, new appliances and well equipped with utensils needed for cooking indoors and out.

Out of our 10 day stay we had manatee (usually mom & baby) visit our quiet canal at least every other day. We were fascinated by these gentle creatures.

The use of the kayaks was an additional plus. The canals are calm and it was great to explore via the waterway.

We ate every meal in the screened patio area which is on the same level as the kitchen and the dock. The kids could fish, explore the wild life, and enjoy the sun as dinner was prepared (no need to run up and down stairs). We also enjoyed the cleanliness of the canal and went for several swims… no need for a pool!

The neighbourhood was quiet and great for walking… you will see two resident peacocks (both named Ken). It was also convenient to get to the Publix (grocery store) only about 2 miles away.

I can go on and on about this property. We loved it and would definitely go back. We have recommended this place to several of our Canadian friends. Look no further this is the place for you!

The cottage is open concept with a beautiful screen porch for gathering everyone together. Clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed for our week long getaway. Owner is great communicator and was very helpful! Beds are above average for providing rest and added comfort in a quiet neighborhood. A wide range of places to visit and things to do. Hope to go back!

Centrally located vacation home. Right in the heart of Key Largo. Just minutes from John Pennekamp Coral Reef state park. Close to downtown so banking, pharmacies, shopping, restaurants and groceries are just a short drive away. Snorkeling at the reef, fishing, jet ski rentals, sailing and many other water activities can be arranged nearby. Isla Morada and the Theatre of the Sea are just 15 minutes away. Enjoy dolphins, seals and other wildlife shows. Swim with dolphins! The waters around Key Largo are a sportsman's dream: enjoy deep sea fishing, lobstering, crabbing, and spear fishing. Boat rentals available nearby if you want to explore on your own. Drive down to historic Key West for the day; only 98 miles away. Bayside restaurants like Snook's and Bayside Grill are a stone's throw away (especially close by boat).
