The house was just great! We can't say enough about it. The owners were very nice and helpful. Nice community, (and nice for running in the early mornings.) House was beautifully decorated, clean and very spacious for our two families. Upstairs bedrooms and living space were big and comfortable. Downstairs one bedroom a/c had some difficulty getting going, but it is very nice and big also. The kids enjoyed biking and the little beach so much. The dock was very nice, spacious for our 34'boat, everything well maintained and convenient.
Back yard with lush tropical landscaping that we really enjoyed! The tiki was great, will be better with the hammocks! It was very hot during our stay, so we brought the fans outside which made it nicer. Really great features for boaters: great canal access within minutes of bay and ocean, power, water, outdoor shower, ice machine and bait/catch fridge. Alligator reef is just 20 minutes away and stunning. The fish cleaning station was really nice, but better to toss stuff in trash I think since fish remnants can settle around mangroves.
We were able to anchor off the little beach and chill after long mornings out in the reef, which was just wonderful. I would avoid it on Saturday and Sunday since everyone else goes those days. But Monday through Friday it's just heaven.
Great location for day trips to key west, turtle hospital, or an afternoon tarpon feeding at Robbie's. Only downside is distance from nearest grocery store was a little bit far for me, but nothing that a little advanced planning can't fix. And for everything forgotten there's crazy bills around the corner.
Really recommend this beautiful home.
