This is truly paradise. You have the beach at one end of the road and the grocery store at the other. We barely left the cottage, except for a day trip to nearby Key West. Enough fish caught off the seawall for dinner most days. Spectacular views. All this and our dog was welcome, too. Marie is great to work with, and her kitchen is a renters dream. Endless pots, pans, bakeware, and dishes, which is certainly not the norm at the other places we have rented over the years. The fenced in patio was great for the dog. He could be outside all day just like at home. Plenty of non-busy dog walking places as well. I would recommend Mutton Manor highly! It is everything the description says and more.
