Our stay at Heron's Roost is what the Keys is all about. You really don't need to leave the beautiful house. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed. The pool, the view, the patio area under the house, the dock, everything was wonderful. We went boating, lobstering, fishing, and eating at the yummy restaurants within 5 miles. Key West was close enough to take an afternoon trip to without it being a big ordeal. Can't wait to go back.
