  • This was a great stay!

    "We had such a relaxing time at 5 O'Clock Somewhere! The house was as we expected from the pictures and we really enjoyed having the backyard pool! It was very clean and the host in town(Katie) was easy to contact and responded almost immediately to any requests we had about the town, etc. It was a very convenient location to all of the Keys, as we wanted to see them all. The only thing that could be improved are the mattresses. They were too soft. I would definitely recommend this property- it is a great deal for the money."

  • Amazing family vacation.

    "My family and I spent a wonderful week at this Waterfront Oasis. The owners were great and gave excellent tips on local restaurants and other area attractions. Plenty of great family activities in the area."

  • We loved it, and we'll be back!!

    "This was our first stay in this home, and we can't wait to return! Four of the six people in our group had never been to the Keys or rented a vacation home before. They now say they are spoiled for future trips and any future places will have to be as nice as this one! The owners, Joe and Mary, responded in a timely manner to emailed questions about the house. The renting process was very easy and stress free. The check in/check out process was easy to follow. The property manager, Debbie, was immediately available for the few questions we had while we were in the home. Outdoors: The gas grill was put to good use nearly every day. We loved eating every meal out on the main floor balcony, looking at the great view/ listening to the water. Even though we didn't bring our boat, the guys loved fishing off of the dock. There is plenty of space for a boat, and the fish cleaning station and the bait freezer got a workout while we were there because the mangrove snapper and tarpon were really biting most of the week. We only took the double kayak out a few times because it was really windy, but it was so nice to not have to bring ours down with us. The small island off to the right is good little jaunt and great for bird watching. We brought extra bikes to go along with the two that were provided so all 6 of us could ride. The pool although on the small side (most are in the Keys) was perfect for sitting and chatting with friends. We had a lot of wildlife visiting us, too. A large iguana, a huge land crab, fish, baby sharks (caught and released at night), a manatee swimming by, and lots of birds. I rode my bike to the grocery and fish market! Did I mention the VIEW..and the stars at night..and the breezes?! Inside: The house is well stocked and very functional. The downstairs entry is great for storing all of your gear that doesn't need to go upstairs, like fishing gear, bikes, extra water, etc. There is ample closet space throughout. The washer and dryer are nice to have. The main living area is smallish, but we were rarely in the house. The bedrooms were all a nice size and the whole house is tastefully decorated. The pictures online are up-to-date, so no arriving and seeing 30 year old furniture.It is a nice layout with basically two master suites on the top floor and a full bath and bedroom on the main living floor. Florida is hot and the A/C in this place is great when you want/need to be inside. Great TV. THANK YOU!! WE'LL BE BACK!!"

  • 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!"
