We had a great trip!

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice, the bathrooms and decking could use some updating but it was perfect for us. Sherry is definitely a great rental manager and was always on top of things when we needed her. Thanks for making our trip to the keys great!

The Perfect Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

After hours of searching, I happened upon Sherry's property and messaged her hoping she would allow a group of college students to rent for spring break in March of 2017. Sherry proved to be an extremely helpful and flexible host, making our rental process extremely pleasant.

The house itself fit our needs perfectly. The house was kept very clean and everything was in great condition. The appliances in all 3 (!!!) kitchens were beautiful. The house slept 12 very comfortably. The three floors are completely separated, perfect for separating families or other groups! When we arrived, the house was beautifully stocked with a variety of kitchenware (and some leftover food!), lots of cleaning supplies, and even some good books! We felt very well taken care of.

The pool was bigger than we expected, and the hot tub was a treat! The bottom floor was perfect for getting out of the sun and preparing a snack or some drinks! The bar certainly made drinks by the pool very memorable. There were plenty of beach & bath towels to go around! The neighbors offered to take us on a fishing trip and everything!

Perhaps most important to us, the house was a short 5 minute walk to one of the best beaches in the Keys. We had people telling us they drove 1.5 hours to get to this beach, and we were only a couple minute's walk away! Sombrero Beach was beautiful and not overly crowded. We even saw a turtle get released into the ocean.

Overall, this vacation was perfection from start to finish. Highly recommend!

Awesome location with big private back yard

  • 5 of 5

13 of us stayed at this house for one week. It fit our needs perfectly. The kids and adults love the large pool and the hot tub. We rented a boat for the week which we kept out front and it was just one minute to the ocean which was great! Beds were comfortable and kitchens were stocked. The owner lives right next door and he's such a kind and friendly man. Sherry the property manager was very wonderful and easy to get ahold of. She made sure that everything was there that we needed for the babies in our group. Sombrero Beach is within walking distance also. We rented a bike for the kids and we brought our rollerblades and enjoyed many rides along the Sombrero Beach road bike path. Our only regret is that we didn't stay for two weeks!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to host your trip to The Florida Keys. I am happy to hear that this home worked out so well for you. This truly is a great family spot with the two separate floors of living space, and the large pool. And of course the small soaking tub works out great for the young ones. We are always so pleased to see the families getting a chance to all get together for a week away....
