We arrived to a very clean and nicely furnished place. Property was clean and well maintained.We spent most of our time on the great back deck. We watched the beautiful sunrises over the water sitting on the deck, there was a nice breeze and was bug free, We enjoyed the wildlife and marine life we observed off the channel, it was very nice being at the beginning of the channel. We saw starfish, parrot fish, a gar and many other fish. There was a great white heron that hung around, it like watching the guys fish. Enjoyed watching birds dive and swim under water to fish. Paul, the owner's friend and local resident took our husbands fishing 30 miles out into the ocean on his boat. They caught a 30lb grouper and a 2ft Dolphin fish aka Mahi Mahi. Paul was awesome and the guys had a great time, a dream fishing trip for them (my sister in law and I shopped in Key West (30 minutes from Cudjoe Key) while the husbands fished!). Cudjoe Key was close to all the places we wanted to visit/tour on our trip, there was so much to do! We also took advantage of the hot tub in the complex, that felt great after a long day out visiting the local attractions. The owner was great to deal with, absolutely no problems with any transaction or communications. She had a folder with a lot of helpful information about the place ready when we arrived, it also had information about the local areas and places to eat, we found that useful. We also added more local attraction information to the folder for future guests. Not only would I recommend this place, if we ever get a chance to visit the keys again, we would stay here again.
