  • Great find!

    "Stayed here for two weeks with my daughter and her husband, my son and his wife and my three granddaughters aged 9,7 and 5. We chose this place after extensive research online. As we were visiting from the United Kingdom we wanted to be sure that it was exactly right for our needs - a base from which to explore the Keys and somewhere to relax and have fun. It was perfect for us. The pool was just great and it was difficult to persuade the children to get out! None of us tired of the stunning view from the house and beach and we took back some amazing photographs. We didn't know what s'mores were but quickly did some online research and made good use of the fire ring to make some! We're now experts. The house itself was perfect for our needs… Particularly the kitchen area which was well stocked and ideal for socialising in the evenings round the big central island. The outside space provided some ideal spots to relax in the shade or bask in the sun. We loved the peaceful, private location of the house/beach but with restaurants and supermarkets so close by we had the best of both worlds. Lots of magical moments in, on and by the ocean with some fabulous memories to take home."

  • Paradise Cove Stay

    "Our stay in Paradise Cove was wonderful. There were seven women in our group. When we arrived, Wendy gave us an extensive tour of the property to assure that we knew the ins and outs. The house was clean and supplied with all the necessities. When we needed anything, the owner was readily available to help out. The only regret we had was that we could not have stayed longer. We highly recommend this beautiful property."

  • Hidden Paradise !!!

    "This place is amazing!!! From the moment we arrived the private aquarium started the excitement. We spotted Parrot fish, Lobsters, Stone crabs, Starfish, Horseshoe crabs, tons of Mullet and on our last evening a visit from a baby manatee to top it all off. This relaxing paradise comes with everything new grill, bikes, kayaks, life jackets, snorkel gear, fishing poles, all kitchen accessories. I even found a skill saw in the shed to cut up wood for the chimenea. On our relaxing vacation right across the street is pier 68 boat rentals. No guided tours for our first time we rented a boat and explored the keys first hand anchoring off and snorkeling where ever we wanted. Also pulling up to a local dock at safari lounge grabbing a bite to eat and then back off we go what an awesome adventure we had renting a boat. Great Memories! We reserved a sport fishing trip with Captain Rick & the Sea Horse charters located at blue whale harbor. My wife didn’t want to go and by the end of this trip she was so excited and glad she went. We caught Black fin tuna and Mahi-Mahi Dolphin. Captain Rick booked us a reservation at Lazy Days restaurant where they prepared our catch of the day with a very impressive platter right on the water’s edge. Thank you Captain Rick! Key West is only 1 hour away and it was the perfect distance to go and enjoy the day. We ate at Pinchers seafood restaurant walked the streets shopping and getting brain freezes at fat Tuesday. we visited the southernmost point and then we headed back to our quiet and relaxing Paradise. Bahia Honda state park is a very nice local beach. My buddy Mike & his wife Shawna have never snorkeled. This beach is the place to teach it’s clean with white sandy and very well taken care of. Very nice! Enjoying the area I would recommend these locations. Robbie’s feeding the live tarpon; Olive Maranda imported Olive Oils, Islamorada Beer company brewery & tasting room, Lazy Days restaurant, Shell world, pier 68 Rentals and Sea Horse Charters. Lasting impressions! The owner Jerry was nice and very easy going once we arrived he gave us the tour and pointed out some of the best things to do in the area. We all loved knowing that after our day of fun in the sun we had an awesome location to come back home to. Relaxing, enjoying and share our stories with our friendly Acquaintances also renting on property. Thank you very much Jerry for the memories we made. Jason, Lisa, Mike & Shawna"

  • TYPICAL KEYS RENTAL-EXPECTATION MET

    "Heading for our long weekend away we were a little nervous considering the serious drop in positive reviews. We have stayed in the keys many times. This trip was two couples(early 50's) enjoying a long holiday weekend. Dividing the cost between the two couples meant we paid less than a hotel room and had the plus of a full kitchen and laundry facilities and room to spread out. The a/c was plenty cold. The hot water was plenty hot. The cable tv was fine. The beds were comfy. We didn't encounter any issues with the house at all. The house was cleaned when we arrived, in fact the cleaners came back and asked if we wanted them to fold the laundry they had left in the dryer. Yes the house needs a deep cleaning like the berber carpeting is deeply stained. However, we go to the keys with kayaks in tow and after a day on the water, we come dragging into a house with sand and muck and wet, so we wouldn't like to stay in a place that we felt like we had to be totally tidy in. We also were able to bring our dog along, another plus. We couldn't have sat outside in July as we would have just been eaten alive by the mosquitos, but we were able to use the grill one night and it was fine. The dock is showing signs of aging, but the hole is intentionally part of the dock, to allow for mangroves growing there. We never felt unsafe walking on it. Yes the boat is old, but we weren't bothered by it. We go to the Keys to mostly kick back, relax, kayak, and fish. I can see how if you were going to stay at the house as a major part of your time there, that you could be disappointed, but clean and functional works fine for us as long as we aren't paying a premium price. The salt air is so hard on property in the keys, to keep a place in top shape requires expensive regular maintenance that probably would eat up most profit. So, I'm sure it's a balancing act for an owner to figure out what to invest in and what to let go. Also we did receive our security deposit back in the time stated. Would we stay there again? Yep."
