  • 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."

  • Wonderful vacation spot!!!!

    "My husband, son, hound dog and I had an amazing stay at Dave and Aprils Sept 11-17! They have thought of absolutely everything to make this a warm, welcoming, vacation retreat. The home is very centrally located and just a short drive to our favorite fishing spot in Islamorada where my husband really did hook " the big one that got away". Lol....We loved the screened porch and spent most of our "home" time out there watching Jesse chase the squirrels. Their home is spotless and the decor is beautiful. And, best of all, the beds were so comfortable and we slept soundly in the peace and quiet this home provides. Dave is very attentive to the needs of his guests...there's plenty of parking and neighbors are friendly...you will not be disappointed in this retreat. Can't wait to return.....Mike and Linda Carroll...Steve and JDog..."

  • Great view and very comfortable surroundings.

    "First of all, the owner of this property, Gaston De Cardenas , was very helpful and available to answer our questions and concerns about his property. The condo was just as the VRBO listing described it. The property was clean and maintained properly. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, utensils and food. The condo was located near many restaurants, a state park and a grocery store. One of our favorite nearby restaurants was The Pilot House. This condo was only 90 minutes from the Fort Lauderdale airport to the North and only two hours to Key West to the South. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family . It is located right on the ocean with a fantastic view. We could not think of anything we would change about our visit to Key Largo and this property."

  • Beautiful Home in Key Largo

    "Serenity by the Sea is a great choice for a stay in Key Largo. The home was fully stocked with swimming floats, life jackets, kayaks, basically anything you can think of for the water, and a jacuzzi! The dock is wonderful for fishing and docking a boat. The small private beach on the property is great for family fun in the sand and in the water. The shoreline does have some rocks, however, this is avoided the deeper you go in. There are numerous lawn chairs and a picnic table, which makes it easy for everyone to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view. The inside of the home is decorated following a beach cottage theme. It was very cute! The beds were comfortable and numerous. The kitchen in particular could use some renovations as the cabinets were hanging off the wall and didn't close very easily. Additionally, the fridge didn't get as cold as we expected it to be. Most of the things you would need in a kitchen are available to you, however, we were in need of more cutting boards throughout the trip and some of the cooking pans weren't of the best quality. My favorite part of the home was the large (floor to ceiling) windows flowing throughout the home. Every morning when we woke up there was a gorgeous view right there in the living room and kitchen. We could look right out to the sea while we ate breakfast in the kitchen. Overall, this home is a great choice for a large family that likes to have fun!"
