Comfortable Clean Cozy 2/1 with all the amenities you expect for your home away

We love Venture Out and hope you'll experience the beautiful Florida Keys like a Floridian. Our little piece of paradise has so much to offer, whether your here for a weekend, a week or a month. The cottage and Venture Out has all the amenities you might find elsewhere, except its all contained in a safe and secure setting. Our home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, 1 queen bed and 2 singles along with a leather couch which opens to a full sleeper. The home sits on a 60' wide canal with direct access to open water. There are TV's and wifi available for you to enjoy, along with games and bicycles and kayaks to explore the compound and the local waters.

Enjoy coffee on the 35' dock at sunrise, or Margaritas watching the sun go down. Bring your own boat or have one delivered to the dock. You can drop in a line right from the dock and catch dinner if you wish, or experience the many local restaurants specializing in local seafood, most will cook your catch. No fast food here!

We have our own Marina and store, tennis court, basketball court, bocce ball, putting green, Olympic pool, kiddie pool, jacuzzi, playground and picnic area with Tiki hut. We even have our own post office for those that want to send postcards of their stay in the Keys! During the season enjoy pancake breakfasts-all you can eat, and Happy hour on Fridays too!

Close by are many great places for snorkeling, diving, fishing including world famous Looe Key Reef. We have access to both The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico for great fishing. Only miles to Bahia Honda State Park and Fort Zachary Taylor Park. Both of these attractions draw people from all over the world. Each has a wonderful concession stand which makes them great for an all day trip. Many restaurants, shopping and a variety of night life only 15 miles away at Key West. Experience Sunset at Mallory Square or have a beer at Sloppy Joes. Walk through Hemingways home or visit the treasures at Mel Fishers museum. All of these things are at your door and only minutes away.

You can bring your boat, or rent from one of the local rental companies, some will deliver to our dock for you. No charge for putting your boat in at the Marina at Venture Out. (the park charges a daily fee for trailer and extra car parking) These is a resort charge when you check in, payable to the park, cash only.

About Jim/Christy Creighton

Jim/Christy Creighton purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jim/Christy Creighton chose Lower Keys Area

When we decided to purchase a keys home to get away, we wanted a secure and friendly environment. One that offered an abundance of things to do, but mainly waterfront property. Venture Out has all of these and more.

Fishing boat available to rent for experienced boaters. Or I can provide a guide to help you through the skinny waters around Cudjoe.

What makes this cottage unique

The location to pristine waters and parks, worlds finest fishing and diving as well as Key West and all it has to offer, and the comfort of a home, not just a bed.

Perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cozy little house. We fished every day off the dock, kayaked, swam at the pool, and enjoyed a day at Bahaia Honda just a short ride away. The dock is home to many species of marine life. It was great to watch. We even saw nurse sharks.

We look forward to returning :)

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Everything you need for a nice relaxing stay. House was super clean and well kept. Great location too! So nice to be on the water. Amenities of the neighborhood were great too. Quiet place to enjoy your honeymoon for sure. Restaurants close by were all amazing and Key West isn't too far away! Jim & Christy were very easy to work with. We would definitely book again!

We had a great time and enjoyed all resort amenities. The private marina was great for launching our boat. Very clean home and nice owners . Short drive to all of the other keys for sightseeing.

Lovely property! Would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this property. It is conveniently located between Key West and Marathon, where there are many activities to do during a visit to the Keys. The property is well equipped with all the comforts of home, and we felt very much at home indeed. The air conditioner went out on the second night of our stay, and the owners had the issue resolved the next morning. We discovered during that sleeping with the windows open and the ceiling fan on is very comfortable! I highly recommend this property, and we will try to visit again sometime in the future.

Great Family Destination!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location, amenities, and comfort! Jim and Christy were quick to respond to all questions ahead of our trip. The location was perfect - a quick drive to Key West and Marathon to see the sites, but just far enough away to be a quiet and relaxing getaway also. Check in at Venture Out was a breeze. The community provided recreation activities would've been enough to keep our active family busy for days. The only regret is not having more time!

Jim and Christy's home has the perfect balance for a vacation. There was enough room for our family of four to spread out and spend time together. The bedroom locations are perfect - our kids could get a good night's rest and the adults could stay up and socialize. Having extra sheets, towels, and blankets (and in-house laundry) made beach packing and unpacking a breeze! I appreciated having the books and boardgames as a rainy day back-up. We cooked several meals in to save money, and appreciated the extras - like salt/pepper and coffee filters!

We'll definitely be back. I would highly recommend for families looking to enjoy the Keys with more amenities than a hotel but at a lower cost. Jim and Christy's provided us flexibility and comfort for a successful vacation!

So many things to do in the beautiful Florida Keys, rent a boat in Summerland, or rent mine right from our dock. Visit Marathon and the Turtle Hospital or Dolphin Research Center and swim with Dolphins. Learn to Kite Board, Paddle board, or dive at one of the great reefs like Looe Reef or Bahia Honda State park, or visit Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park in Key West. There you can rent jet skis or visit the museums and aquarium, or just do the Pub crawl. Ask and we can give you many referrals for a variety of things to do.
