  • Improving on Perfection

    "For many people, it just doesn’t get better than a holiday in the Florida Keys. We’ve been going, on & off, for the last twenty years, and each time we’ve refined our choice of accommodation. This year we really hit the jackpot with our stay at Villa Southern Comforts in Saddlebunch Key. First of all, the location is outstanding – just 15 miles from all the attractions in Key West, yet set on a quiet road with local amenities (Baby’s Coffee is superb!) Without a doubt, the best feature of the location is that the villa is on the sunset side of the Key. There’s no need to trek down to Mallory Square – just enjoy the most amazing sunsets from the privacy your own back yard – the drinks are cheaper too! Secondly, an excellent local Realtor professionally manages the property. Payment was easy and secure, (often a problem from the UK) there was a point of contact during our stay and nothing was too much trouble. Finally the villa itself: Previous reviewers who have focused on the wear & tear that rental properties acquire over time have, I believe, missed the point. This property’s outstanding feature is the pool. It is completely secluded and as private as you are ever likely to get in the Keys. Everything else was in working order, but even if it hadn’t been – with a pool that good it would have been churlish to complain. Easy access and a sense of security combine to give a real feel-good quality to the property that turns a good holiday into a great one. In short – we loved it, and are already planning our return trip."

  • Paradise Seeker

    "i would wholeheartedly recommend this property, we found the house and property better than the description. The house was very clean as we arrived and the owners followed up right after our arrival to assure our satisfaction. The house is minutes from the ocean on a clear canal containing a wealth of sea life. We saw parrotfish snappers small sharks and a manatee. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Enjoy!"

  • 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."
