  • 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."

  • Great spot for the whole family

    "It was a pleasant surprise to see the location of this house. It was at the end of a canal of mangroves, not too far of a boat ride to the ocean to do some snorkeling or to go further out to do some fishing. It was also a short drive to John Pennekamp State park. The house was beautifully decorated and had plenty of room for the 12 people we had in our group. The kitchen was great with large fridge and new washer and dryer that we used quite a bit! The pictures of the pool does not do it justice, it was against the house and stay shaded on one side and very clean. They had 2 kayaks that came with the house so we were able to enjoy time kayaking through the mangroves (we found manatees, a mom and 2 babies). The kids (and adults) really enjoyed having a pool table and ping pong table when it got too hot outside. There were 3 bedrooms upstairs (one master with an on suite and the other 2 bedrooms shared a bathroom) and also 2 bedrooms downstairs. My only negative would be there were no bathrooms downstairs, so whoever slept downstairs had to walk upstairs to use the restroom! I would, without a doubt, stay here again. Key Largo is definitely not as 'busy' as a little further south like Islamorada, but still have some great stores and restuarants to visit. I suggest going to Bayside Grille to watch the sunset and sit downstairs, they had great food and the bartenders/waiters did an amazing job keeping up with the crowd. We were taking this trip to spend time together as a family and the location of the house and activities we could do without leaving the house made that possible. Raisa and her husband were very kind in making sure we had a great stay. Thanks again!"

  • Perfect Place to Stay in Key Largo

    "We rented the Rock Harbor condo for two weeks. We should have stayed longer. It is a wonderful condo and condo complex. The grounds are nicely landscaped and the beach right in front of the condo is very private and clean and comfortable. We usually had the entire beach to ourselves for the whole day. The pod of dolphins that swam by every morning was quite special. Often, the dolphin would literally be just feet away from the pier and us! And sunsets... you have to see them to believe them. The condo itself was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The two and a half bathrooms were very convenient, the kitchen, although small, was well stocked, the living room was spacious, and the balconies...Well, we were on the screened in balconies until late every night."

  • Very nice and roomy place. Can't see the water from the unit.....

    "The pictures advertised for this unit was a little mis-leading. You cannot see either pool or the ocean from this unit whatsoever. It's a walk to get to any of these bodies of water as well. When we woke up on our first morning we were disappointed to find BOTH coffee makers were broke and some small things were wrong. The door on the guest shower was off the tracks, the ac in the lower unit wasn't pumping cold air very well and the bar on towel rack in the guest bath flew off. I reported all of this to Jose and although he was responsive..... none of the items got fixed. There was limited toilet paper and towels throughout. We had to go out and buy our own coffee maker. The unit was gorgeous and clean and very spacious. Beds were super comfy. When I put in my search perameters in VRBO I made sure I asked for water view and based on the pics I thought we would have one. BUT if you want water front or be able to see the water from this unit - this is **not** the place to pick. BUT overall it was a lovely week and we really enjoyed ourselves."
