  • A True Fishermans Paradise

    "This Home away from Home was an absolute gem! The layout, décor, ease of access, upgraded appliances, comfortable rooms, and dock just feet from the back door made the vacation perfect! This house is central to all activities within the area and is perfect for adventure seekers, romantic getaways, sightseeing, girls getaway, and seniors. I highly recommend this property!"

  • Owner Review

    "Though I cannot review this property because we had to cancel our trip unexpectedly, I would like to state that the owners were fantastic people to work with. We had reserved this property for an extended family vacation and due to a family emergency, we had to cancel our reservations. The owners were kind and understanding and fully refunded our deposit. They made an unpleasant situation much easier and that isn't something you find everyday. We will eventually make it to the house and I'm sure it will be followed with another excellent review."

  • A true 5-star experience

    "We tend to be wary when there are more pictures of the outdoors than the indoors but Jerry's little flats in paradise break a lot of our standard rules. We are birders and naturalists and some of our most exciting sightings were 10 feet from where we were having tea. The apartment is comfortable, clean and well-appointed but you wont be spending much time indoors. The host is unusually generous with savvy advice about local restaurants, fishing, parks, pests, & weather. He knows his territory. He is even more generous with unexpected amenities like kayaks, snorkeling/fishing gear, a park pass, bicycles, & lanterns. All this extra gear is high quality and in good repair. The value of these amenities make this property an unexpected bargain. The claims about the natural diversity literally at your door are not exaggerated. If you love nature you may never leave the patio. In fact there's a hammock out there if you can't tear yourself away. Doing business with the host was trouble-free. Layton is tiny and quiet but there's a destination Italian restaurant (Acquapazza) just a couple of blocks away. The indoors is nothing fancy but it was attractive, practical, & sturdy. The bathroom was very clean and the shower is a standout. The kitchen is a little dark but perfectly serviceable. We got a chuckle out of the whimsical coffee tables. Jerry built this place for fun in a stunningly beautiful place and it delivers, big time. Rent it and get your feet wet! Highest recommendation!"

  • Relaxing waterfront - clean and comfortable

    "A perfect home for our group: five adults and four teens. The teens wanted to share a bedroom and the bunk beds were perfect. The two living rooms allowed everyone to spread out to talk or read while others watched TV; yet all nine fit in the living room comfortably together. Plenty of outdoor seating, although most of us preferred to sit on the wall near the water. Outdoor grilling was our preferred cooking method. The indoor pool was wonderful. Bathrooms are updated and clean. Enjoyed the walk-in rain shower. The "teen" bathroom was perfect -- double sinks in one area and a pocket door to separate the toilet/shower area -- allowed the teens to get ready together. The extra refrigerator in the garage came in handy. Nice washer/dryers. The house is in a great location - close to Turtle Hospital, Dolphin Research Center, Boondocks, Sombrero Beach, Bahia Honda Beach and approx. 1 hour from Key West. The neighborhood is nice for a jog and long walks. We had one glitch upon arrival which Jackie quickly took care of; also the sliding glass doors to get in to and out of the house were a bit challenging (humidity?) but that didn't stop us! Thanks Tudor and Jim, you were fantastic to work with. We appreciate your quick response to our inquiries/emails. The views are breathtaking; the sunsets across the water were wonderful; and the house is beautiful. Highly recommend this oasis; close to everything yet away from it all!"
