Overview

About the property

1 Private Bedroom (king sz bed(s) with additional sleeping space

*****IMPORTANT****Hurricane Irma Update 12-1-17: Our individual condo survived Irma well, being on the 6th floor and having hurricane shutters all around protected it. The Seagulls is rebuilding. The pool and one of two elevators are back in operation. Work on the common areas will continue for some time. The tennis courts are gone, and will probably not be rebuilt. Many of the Keys bars and restaurants have already reopened in our area. The further south you go, the worse the damage is. If you're looking for a nice clean oceanview location in the upper Keys, we have it. The area has been affected by Irma, but its fared much much better than many other locations in The Keys. ************* Enjoy the unique tropical beauty of the Florida Keys from this end-unit condo. From the private balcony you will see breathtaking sunrises & sunsets. Scan the horizon across the turquoise sea for sailing and fishing vessels, sea birds and dolphins. Spend the day beneath the swaying palms at the oceanfront heated pool. Grill and enjoy your meals right on the beach in the native Chickee Huts. .

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful Christmas vacation. Your suggestions were invaluable. The fishing trip you set up for us the best we caought yellowtail, snapper, grouper (which we had to throw back), and some nice spanish mackerel. We loved exploring the mangroves in your kayak. We took some great photos from the balcony. Thanks for the memories.

What a surprise

  • 4 of 5

Thr place was clean, but if you look for a stay for 5 people I would not recommend it.

When we got there, we looked forward for the bunk bed that looked to be twin size in the pictures advertised.

We walked around, finally opened the closet folding door and found that the closest had been converted into a tiny bunk bed, not ok for teenagers.

The bedroom was nice, but the pullout couch was very uncomfortable.

This place would be ok for a family with small children.

Overall it was nice and convenient from mainland Florida.

The bay by the condo is dirty and stinks. No nice beach in the near.

The condo is clean and cool and beautyfully furnished. Everything was working..

In the last evening there men came and wanted to go to the apartment. This turned out to be a misunderstanding, meal the owner. Unfortunately , the last evening was gone.We did not trust each other anymore.The last dinner on the beach was gone.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here last week with our eleven and six year old sons. It was a spur of the moment trip and this property was absolutely perfect! We plan on making this an annual trip and hope to stay here every time! More than enough to make us feel at home. the boys loved the bunk beds and iguanas!!!

Dated but adequate

  • 4 of 5

A nice place to stay. Very quiet. The kitchen was well equipped, bathroom was clean, view was ok, just know you are on top of a high school football field, bed was a bit uncomfortable, AC worked great, and it's about as far away from your parked car, pool, and beach as you can get. Top floor at the end. Bedroom TV very small. Wi fi worked fast. Thx for a great week in the keys. 2 adults and two children were comfortable.

Owner's Response: Not sure what you meant by dated, but we just replaced the entire kitchen including cabinets etc. 6 months ago. We did just replace the bedroom TV with a brand new 32" flat screen, this week (after your stay). We also replaced the single kayak, with a brand new tandem Abaco 13.5 on April 10, 2017.
