My wife and I have a permanent camping (glamping really) site in Wisconsin where we spend about 60 days hunting, fishing, and loving everyday. We close camp each year in November and this year needed a much warmer location to spend our December wedding anniversary. We found this great property on VRBO and Nestor took care of the rest.
The property is located just beyond mainland Florida not quite 80 miles from Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood airport. It is another 7.5 miles down Hwy 1 to the Winn Dixie store where we picked up all the supplies we needed for our vacation. Mile marker 0 in Key West is 113 miles (and a cool drive might I add). The trailer is backed up to the water and very private given there is a trailer on each side of this one. Nester has done a great job carving out seclusion in a rather crowded neighborhood. The entrance to the neighborhood is gated and the neighborhood was quiet and clean during our entire stay. We found ourselves leaving the back window open to allow the ocean breeze and sounds to come in.
The accommodation was a nearly new slide-out travel trailer. Everything in the trailer worked well. For some reason the water heater was not turned on upon our arrival, but Nestor came as soon as we contacted him to turn it on. Two electric heaters were provided for the cool winter days and the air conditioning worked well. A coffee maker and toaster oven are provided but a hair drier is not. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, and many other odds and ends from frequent use. There is a TV with DirecTV service in the main living area of the trailer. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. The sofa pulls out into a bed making max occupancy four, but three would fit more comfortably.
All-in-all we had a great time and made many memories traveling from Key Largo to Key West during our stay. It was perfect for just the wife and me.
