"Wow! What a week! This house is very secluded and the property is well maintained! Jim is a very nice person took us out on the boat when we got there to show us the ropes and where to have fun! We had a BLAST on the boat! We had a party of 9 and the house was plenty big enough for us all! The wildlife was also plentiful we saw many fish and 3 (at least) manatees! We loved it here and will be back!"

"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."

"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."
