This home is exactly as described! Great location, within walking, running, biking distance to beautiful Sombrero Beach. Very quiet, clean, safe area. Very nice, updated, comfortable furnishings. Gorgeous, brand-new kitchen, with all of the kitchen gadgets you have at home.
From the moment we pulled in the driveway, we knew we had made a great decision in choosing this house for our two-week vacation. Maggie was waiting with a welcoming smile to show us around and answer any questions we might have. It is very evident that she is a hands-on owner and wants each of her guests to have the absolutely best time possible while staying in her home.
We rented paddle boards from Wheels-2-Go for our stay. They offer a nice discount on the second week's rental :). Used them daily at Sombrero, as well as in the canal behind the house. We also used two of the bikes almost daily to go to and from the beach.
We went snorkeling with Spirit, located just north of the 7-mile bridge. Chose the afternoon trip and had a fantastic time exploring the Sombrero Light reef. Spent Christmas Eve afternoon/evening in Key West, not very crowded and saw a beautiful sunset at Mallory Square.
Cooked many meals in the awesome kitchen, but ate out a few times as well. Enjoyed The Island Fish Company, Sparky's, Castaway, take out from Fishtales, Brutus Seafood, Sunset Grille and Grassy Key Outpost. Very central location to all of these restaurants.
Maggie called us yesterday as we were driving home to make sure everything had gone smoothly and that we had had a wonderful vacation. When we got home late last night, I realized I had left a Christmas gift behind. Not an expensive gift, just one that meant a lot to me. I emailed Maggie this morning, heard back from her within 30 minutes, saying she would get it and ship back to me. This is amazing customer service!
The only other comment I can make is...rent this house, you will LOVE IT!
