Location, Convenience, Service

  • 5 of 5

if you are looking for a great place to setup camp, for day trips in the keys, full service boat rental with everything you need at one spot, this is it. Sylvia-Lynn and Co were very helpful and gracious with the house, boat, bait, ice and some good fishing tips. We were there for a week and it flew by. Rented a boat 4 days at a very competitive price, went snorkeling at the reef, fishing, and some cruising. Drove to Key West one day, and several other keys a couple of the other days. The location is great. The house is not the Ritz, but that is not what we were looking for, we brought our little dog along. The house suited our needs perfect, and was clean and comfortable. We had a great fish fry one night with the snapper we caught while there. Can't wait to go back. Thank You !!!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

The place was great. Particularly the fact it was on ground level. No stairs to climb.

Beautiful view.

The house was very clean and had everything you needed.

The owners were very nice and helpful and were right next door.

It was conveniently located to whatever you wanted to do.

If your there to relax, this is it.

  • 5 of 5

Like all the other reviews said, this place is not updated. However, like they also said, everything works! Having the marina next door was great and the people were so nice. I went to relax and fish and that's what we did!

Clean and tidy yet modest. I was surprise at how cool (a/c) the house was.

  • 4 of 5

We were there the weekend before Hurrican Irma hit. We had a great time and the owners gave us much information about where to go for snorkeling, etc. I sure hope their marina survived this hurricane. My heart goes out to them.

Great, old, Florida keys get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay! Lynn and Sylvia were wonderful. The house is older but extremely clean and had every accommodation we could ask for. It was also a great place to bring your dogs. The boat basin was a little tricky for a 30' boat but a very safe harbor and we were comfortable with the boat being there.

Long key is the perfect place for someone who wants to fish, snorkel, and be on the water. Or just get away and enjoy life. This area has the old Keys feel to it.

The year around dress code is shorts, shirt and sandals!

There is almost always a breeze off the bay or the ocean.

The location is what makes it special. Channel 5 bridge is one of the few bridges in the Keys that allows sailboats and large boats access to both the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay. We are just 1 mile West of the Bridge at Mile Marker 69.5.

Our location is a fishermen's dream spot. You can fish the back country and the ocean all in one day. Drive straight out of the marina to great Bay fishing spots like Sprigger Bank, or the Nine Mile Bank. In less them 5 miles, if you go to the ocean, you can fish the patch reef and Tennessee Light. 5 miles out you are past the reef and blue water for sailfish, dolphin, wahoo and kings. The bridges on both side of our island are great for bridge fishing. The variety of fish caught off the bridges is unbelievable. Also the bridges are great for Tarpon and sharks.

We are closes to some of the popular snorkel and dive spots like my personal favorite, Alligator Light.

Lobster season is unbelievable! It is fun and there are so many lobsters! Everyone has a great time diving them up. The best part is most of the lobster are in 5 feet of water so everyone can join in the fun.
