  • Fun house, keeping a boat at the dock is doable

    "We stayed 8 nights at Alize's beautiful house and grounds. We chose this location because it was a 20 minute drive from Duval Street and it had a boat dock. Let me start by saying that everything relating to the house was great and Sandy was super helpful and flexible with regards to scheduling. While plenty of other reviewers have gone into detail about the house itself, I will spend a little time discussing the boating situation. The dock, fishing area, shed with some nets, and bait freezer provided with the house are exactly what anyone with a boat would want. Perfect, in fact. However, people thinking of bringing a boat to the house should take into account a few things first. 1) Let's start with finding a rental. We rented a 25' cat but we had a very tough time finding a company that would let us keep the boat at the house. We tried about 20 places (even with referrals) in Key West and just could not find any; they either were day rentals or required docking at a certified marina every night. Docking ran around $100/night. We decided to look to other keys and finally found one in Summerland Key, which was 20 miles away. It would probably be better if you had your own boat, as there is a slip right next to the bridge east of Boca Chica Channel. But if you have to rent, be prepared to spend time searching and for travel to get the boat there. 2) Getting in and out is VERY tricky due to the shallow areas. This is probably one of the reasons why boat rentals wanted boats returned to marinas. Expect to spend time getting used to maps and keeping a close eye on the tides, as there aren’t any buoys guiding you to the house and some areas are too shallow at mean low tide. The best approach from the house was to do a large sweeping turn out of the canal to the middle of the bridge. Do NOT cut the corner out of the canal. Once under the bridge, hug the bridge and head east until you are longitudinally aligned with the buoys leading to Murray’s Marina, which are due south. Head south and then follow the buoys out to sea. Most of the other boats flew under the bridge on plane, but we were much more cautious as we saw many different submerged hazards, such as bikes and even a scooter, that would have taken out our props. After a couple of times, we were finally able to relax and it took us about 30 minutes to get from the house to the ocean."

  • Fantastic house!

    "What a fantastic house! It was absolutely perfect. We watched the YouTube video before booking it and it was even better than we expected. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms really well equipped. The aircon works perfectly so no problem sleeping on hot Florida nights. There is a great BBQ on the veranda and we cooked and ate outside most evenings. The pool is also great - family friendly and never too busy. I would thoroughly recommend this property and we are already looking at dates to visit next year."

    "Stayed with family and friends for a week and was very pleased. The location, views, and house and property were amazing. Very much a quality property harking back to the feel of old-time, pre cruise ship and pre tourist trap, real Florida. We caught probably 20 mangrove snapper right off the dock just casually fishing from time to time. A few small tarpon caught off the dock provided acrobatic thrills to the non-Floridians in our group. Trailered a boat down from Vero Beach and launched at Spanish Harbor boat ramp a mile away and kept it at the dock. Didn't use it much because I spent too much time relaxing at the property and decompressing from the mental demands of work. We had Key deer in the yard every day. Having been to the Keys many times, I would rate this property as one of my top two places I've stayed. 10 minutes to Marathon and 35 minutes to Key West with a nice waterfront house, privacy, and everything a person could expect supplied in house. Highly recommended to all !!"

  • Heavenly!

    "What a wonderful get away! Three king beds, two up and one down, and four bathrooms made this house comfortable even when family came to stay for a week. We've stayed in many VRBO homes and condos and this is one of the very best thought out homes with plenty of everything you need. The wonderful porch on three sides and the pool right out the side door was very relaxing. Every morning we sat outside eating breakfast and watching the rooster and his family across the street. There is so much to do in Key West and this location is in the center of everything. We rented bicycles for the month and left the car in the driveway. We hated to leave, in fact could have moved right in. We definitely want to stay here again. Thanks Ray & Laura!"
