Why Jim/Christy Creighton chose Cudjoe Key
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.
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.

It's an older place, but it was functional and clean.
We had a great time at this property. The patio on the canal was a great place to sit and BBQ. We watched as people caught fish and did a little fishing ourselves. Everything about this place was fun. Also budget friendly. Thank you for our stay!

Had a fantastic time last month in Cudjoe Key. The weather wasn't as great as we hoped, but the cottage was more than we expected. Very friendly neighbors! The cottage also offered all we needed to cook,. entertain and was very clean. We rented a boat with anticipation of snorkeling, but wasn't able to do so due to weather, but having a dock right outside the door was awesome. My son and I enjoyed the kayaks as well. Hope to visit again soon.
Very clean. Stocked with everything we needed. Wonderful place!
Loved being there! The owners are very nice. The cottage has everything you need. Close to Key West. The property is well maintained. Would Deffinately like to come back!
Great place great time.
Beautiful beach cottage with all the luxuries of home!
My family had a wonderful time on Cudjoe! This beachy cottage was ideal with all the comforts of home; blender, sandwich press, spices, luxury bedding, beach towels, kayaks, floats, bikes, etc. It's obvious that the owners want their guests to have a great time! Thank you for opening your vacation home up to us, we hope to visit it again!
Just returned from 6 days at Cudjoe Key. This property has a great location. Close to Key West and close to beautiful beaches. The use of the kayaks and bikes are great. We ventured into Key West two times and spent our other days at local beaches close by, went reef fishing and rented a boat to explore the neighboring areas.
The house is fully stocked with linens and all the kitchen items we needed. It was great having coffee filters, dish washing liquid, extra paper towels etc. that we didn't have to purchase. Winn Dixie was close and we were able to purchase everything we needed.
We flew into Ft. Lauderdale, rented a car and within 4 hours or so, we were in Cudjoe Key. (We hit traffic and bridge construction).
We are family of 4 with 2 teenage sons. The pull out sofa bed was great for one son since the other snored! The house is well maintained and looks just like the photos. It was enough room for the 4 of us. We were outside adventuring all day and it was great to come back to each night.
Venture Out is well kept and very clean. Everyone was very friendly. It was a great family 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.
