About Vacasa of the Florida Keys

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

A wonderful home in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this home. The pool, by far, was the biggest draw. My sons also loved fishing off the very long dock and caught numerous fish (the people next to us caught a nurse shark). We did have a minor issue with the wifi. We checked in on Saturday and it was not fixed until Monday. The owner keeps the router in a locked room downstairs and the password was not accepted so, after a call to Vacasa on Sat and then Sunday, the manager had to come and reset the password on Monday. We were also vacationing when the ocean breezes were very gusty. This brought in a lot of sea grass to shore which, by the end of our hot vacation, did not smell to great but it is Grassy Key. Even these few minor issues did not ruin how wonderful this house is. It is completely remodeled and very tasteful. No one was ever bored and we all had plenty of room to get away from one another. The pool is a heated, saltwater pool and perfect. We also liked the Sirius sat radio (just like home) by the pool and the handy pool bathroom. Thank you for sharing this Florida Keys home with us. Just a note to those trying to find the home, be aware that when we traveled the road to the home was not marked and looks like an old blacktop driveway between the closed baitshop and the blue apartment building, right after the Dolphin Rescue Center. If you are looking for a road sign you can easily miss it.

Potential to be great.

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice, property was nice, the pier was a major selling point. Privacy was good.

Although Vacasa claims to have made an attempt to heat the pool prior to our visit, the pool heater was non-functioning when we arrived and remained non-functioning throughout our stay despite a telephone call to Vacasa and their re-assurances they would send someone over to fix it. The kayaks were functional but in terrible condition. Driveway gate was torn off.

Owner's Response: We apologize if pool heating was acting up during this stay and hope this guest still had a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. We loved the pier, and the sunsets on the pier, we loved the house..very coastal feel. Everything was there. The grill worked, and it was fun to cook in. The bedrooms and bathrooms were really nice. Our stay had a few cool days, but the pool was heated. XM radio available by pool and out to end of pier, which is no small feat seeing it is 100yds long! Outdoor furniture was perfect. Wifi was fast, Netflix on tv. You won't be disappointed, so just say you're "all in" and stop thinking about it!
