  • Amazing location - Amazing hospitality! Great Value!

    "My husband and I have stayed on Conch Key before but this was our first time at Sunset Villas. First let me say that it is aptly named -- There's probably no place in the keys more beautiful for viewing the sunset. The huge deck area, which is just outside your door, is perfectly situated for watching the sunset every evening, and the Wiatt's have provided many seating arrangements for you -- waterside, hammock, crow's nest, or simply looking out your door. So lovely. The tandem kayak is very stable and an enjoyable way to explore the area - we found a large lobster colony along the highway in the rocks below - they were so cute! And Katrina gave us plenty of info to keep us out of trouble on the water. The bikes were also fun, as you have a little store a couple of blocks away - just ride the bike over to pick up what you need. We also rode the bikes north across the pedestrian bridge toward Layton -- the crabs all along the Overseas Highway Trail were so fun to watch. We only ate out 2 times -- the day we arrived and the night before we left because we caught so many fish right off the dock at Sunset Villas that we were able to have fresh fish every day while we were there. On Wednesday, we went out fishing with Captain Dan and had an awesome time! He recommended that we eat at Habanos in Islamorada and it did not disappoint! (they'll also cook your catch for you). the rest of our time was spent snorkeling right around the sea wall at Sunset Villas and also at Bahia Honda State Park - well worth the $$ and the drive down to explore. The swimming area may seem a little crowded but it doesn't scare the fish away. You'll still have a great snorkeling experience there. just one last thing -- we stayed in the Captain's quarter (1 br) -- the apartment was spotless, with 2 entry doors which both have a table and chairs right out the door and water views on both sides. The bed was very comfortable, the laundry is available 5 steps out your door. The kitchen had most everything you'd need for preparing your meals there, including a steamer basket(!) and a big pot for cooking lobsters. There is no more beautiful and reasonably priced vacation rental in the Keys! Katrina and Bill provide many things you need to enjoy your outings without having to buy extra stuff while you're there, like coolers and water toys. They also have fishing poles -- just bring your reels."

  • Great stay!

    "Our stay at Conch Cottage has been great. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy your stay, plush towels, jack and jill bathroom with two sinks. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, glass ware, and a Kuerig 2.0. The water off your private dock is clear, like looking into an aquarium. The fishing was good off the dock and bridge. There is a small café/store a short walk away."

  • No frills, but a clean, quiet vacation spot

    "Cute little place right on an inlet. In a very quiet neighborhood with pleasant neighbors. (lobster fisherman on one side, sport fisherman that runs tours on the other) It's a working neighborhood, not the place to stay up late partying loudly outside, but if you're looking for relaxing and quiet...it's a great spot. There is a beautiful tiki hut to sit under and play cards. We rented the boats, they were small but adequate for 2 people. Fishing, kayaking, a few day trips out to Big Pine Key, Key West, etc. Nicely centrally located. Not a fancy place, but nicely stocked with pots/pans, utensils. Clean bedding and towels. A few minor issues, the hammock's needing to be replaced, and some new life jackets are in order. The owner was very responsive. There were bikes to ride, kayaks, a big cooler to borrow, a charcoal grill and washer & dryer. We saw sea turtles, porpoise, manatee, angel fish, parrot fish, puffer fish... The keys are beautiful with loads of things to do. The cottage is ideally located pretty much 1/2 way between Key Largo and Key West. Marathon is about 10 minutes away with ample grocery stores and restaurants. Look for the out-of-the-way restaurants, they're the best! Right on the water - Burdine's, Castaways, Sparky's to name a few. Another "must see" are the key deer on Big Pine Key. Make your way to Boondock's for dinner or the No Name pub for pizza. It was the perfect vacation for 4 old friends looking to get away. Thank you Ken for all your assistance & attention!"
