  • Exactly as advertised, Very nice!

    "This house is exactly as the photos depict and a very nice base to explore the Keys, Miami, and the surrounding area. The owner is very cordial and helpful. When we arrived the cable wasn't working and the owner spent several hours of his time to correct the issue. You can't ask for better than that! The kayaks are a nice addition as well. There are a ton of places to eat within a couple minutes drive, grocery stores within a few miles as well. As for the house, it is exactly as pictured. Affordable, good location, very helpful owner....how can you go wrong?"

  • Great outside space, hot indoor space.

    "My family vacationed here for a week prior to dropping my son, husband and friend at Boy Scout Sea Base High Adventure. We were with 4 teenage boys (and two grandparents) looking for something with amenities that would keep these active scouts busy. We were drawn to the kayaks and waterfront location with close proximity to good snorkeling. The outside of the house totally delivers. It is exactly as the pictures show. The tiki equipped with hammock and hammock chairs was terrific but we spent most of the time on the beach, enjoying the sea breeze and fishing from the bulkhead. There is no pier or dock but if you do not have a boat, there is plenty of room to fish. You will need a FL license if you are over 16. Check with your local bait shop for regulations and bait recommendations (we loved Brenda across the street at Capt Pete's who is a wealth of knowledge!) A few things to note about the property: I would not consider this a 3 bedroom. Yes it does have the beds that it states however the lower level is one large open room that has 2 beds in what is largely a family room with large sectional and television. It is more of a studio. We had planned on my parents staying here but it did not give them any privacy from the teenagers and there is no inside staircase that leads to the upstairs. One must go outside and use the front stairs or the spiral staircase out back. Not a problem when the weather was nice but there were several severe thunderstorms throughout the week which I understand is a regular occurance in the summer. Also, the air condition is not adjustable. It is set to 81 degrees (which was hot and not very comfortable for my mom who suffers from asthma) during the day and appears to come on full blast late in the evening, leaving everyone searching for blankets in the middle of the night and early morning. Lastly, do not expect anyone to sleep in the terraced area during the warm weather months. The owners ask that you keep the sliding doors closed during the day and open them after 8 pm. This room was unbearably hot and two of the boys were forced to sleep on loveseats and sofas in the cooler living room. There is no ice maker which is a bummer when frozen drinks are on the bar menu. It is vacation after all! If you plan on snorkeling in the sound, make sure you stop and pick up a dive flag at any local grocery store, Walgreens or dive shop."

  • 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."
