  • An immaculate home in a lovely location

    "The listing for this propoerty is totally accurate and if anything the villa is even more lovely when you arrive. It is immaculate inside, very well appointed and really welcoming space - with enough room for a family to have their own space. Jeanne was a delight to correspond with and her property Manager Irene quickly sorted out a couple of hiccups along the way. The villa comes with everything you might need and more. The pool is perfect for lazy days ( and we did use the resort pool one day but found it very busy and noisy so qucikly retreated back to our own sanctuary! ) The villas are quite close to each other so if you get a large family next door who arrive in 3 cars, it can get very noisy and access can become a problem ( even though residents are asked to use the nearby car park, rather than park on the pavement or grass.) Thankfully after 3 nights of pool parties till 4 o'clock they left and the villa became lovaly and quiet again!!!! Thanks also for your restaurant and outings recommendations Jeanne, the No Name pub at Big Pines Key has to be seen and the cute Key deer too. Franks Grill was also very good - but be warned - you really don't need a starter as the porions are enormous and they give you soup or salad too!! We also took an outing on a glass bottomed boat from the John Pennekamp State Park at Key Largo to see the Reef - a really great trip. The only downside with a privatre rental here, is that Hawks Cay resort is very petty about access - the pools were not a problem but our teens were unable to enter the coral activity centre to make new friends or take part in evening poolside activities ( one of the resort's big selling points) - even if you offer to pay. No reflection on Jeanne or her lovely home, just a niggle about the resort, after all you are staying there and spending money at their property - the Alma restaurant is very good, as is the spa, so you would think they would want to find a way of working with all guests!! Thanks for letting us stay at your lovely Villa Jeanne, we had a great time and fully recommend it."

  • Perfect Duck Key vacation ! ! !

    "We come down to the Keys several times a year, and usually stay in the Islamorada area. This year we wanted to venture closer to marathon and chose this Duck Key home. Since we always come down with an 18ft boat, dockage and trailer parking is always a huge concern. This house has ample trailer parking, and the front yard has plenty of space to maneuver the trailer which was very comforting. Boat dockage was also very easy, even with the owners boat there on a lift, so dockage was not a concern, however a larger boat might need to use the local marina. The downstairs commercial ice maker and chest freezer were a very welcome addition, and we used them extensively. We are quite use to rentals as we come to the Keys every year; our first impression of this house compared to others we have rented was a complete surprise. It was obvious to us that this house had recently been re-modeled and gave the appearance of a brand new house, and on top of that easily one of the best equipped homes we've enjoyed. From the appliances, linens, and overall appearance, we couldn't have been happier. Even the neighbors were friendly and helpful with local advice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this rental to friends, and hope to return again."

  • Just what we expected and SO MUCH MORE!

    "I'm late in providing a review from our stay but I just wanted to let everyone know that we loved this place! Bill and Katrina were SUPER friendly. The sunsets were beautiful! The Captain's Quarters was very clean and perfect for my husband and I. We loved how close we were to everything, yet how nice and peaceful it was here. It's definitely a place to "unplug" from your busy life and "reconnect" with what life is all about. I know this isn't very detailed but if you are considering this rental - DO IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT! ps...I clicked for ages 55+ but I am 41 and my hubby is 43...WE LOVED IT."

  • Paradise Found

    "This was such an amazing property. The pictures do not do it justice! John is a great guy and quickly answered any questions we had. The kids (and adults) in my family had a great time in the pool, with the kayak and fishing off the dock. We saw nurse sharks, snapper, parrotfish and huge starfish. We can't wait to make this a yearly trip!"
