Our gift to you for renting from us!( We also provide 2 beach chairs,2 boogey boards,2 noodles, beach towels and some beach toys for you to enjoy while at the beach.)

Please note that there is a $50 entry fee for our gated community that you will have to pay at the front gate. This fee covers your whole stay at our resort. This gives you FULL access to the marina, pool, tennis courts, billiards, playground, jacuzzi and more.

Now about our wonderful home...

Imagine a tropical bungalow with cathedral ceilings, beautiful designer touches, spacious and sparkling clean. As you enter you will love the open feeling of the great room with comfortable dining for six, fully-equipped kitchen with center island, lovely living room with Tommy Bahama couch and love seat, and desk area, and a nice 40 inch HD flat screen TV with cable! The walls are adorned with fantastic local art. And, of course, you have central air. Floors are ceramic tile.Our vacation home has just been completely repainted on the interior with fun tropical color, plus we added new comforters,towels, plates, artwork,and even more. Our home is sparkling clean because it's our vacation home, too.

The master bedroom has a queen bed adorned with nice bed linen and memory foam. Lay in the big comfortable bed and watch the flat screen TV. You will also admire the beautiful artwork. There is a nice mirrored double closet in the master bedroom. PLUS you have an attached full-size master bathroom with tub/shower combination, vanity sink, toilet, and linen closet. And do not forget the nice towels we provide! We also supply beach towels.

The guest bedroom has two twin beds and a small TV/DVD combo so you can watch movies or play music CDs. Hook ups for Video Games keep kids happy! There is also a pack and play for the little one in your family. This bedroom boasts its own full-size bathroom with a shower, toilet, and sink. Off this bathroom is the stack washer and dryer.

Our manufactured home is located in Cudjoe Key,Florida - and we have SO many amenities. Lighted tennis courts, Olympic-sized heated pool, kiddie pool, spa jacuzzi,ping pong, bocce ball courts, shuffleboard courts, golf putting area, basketball, children's playground, pool table, dart room, MARINA complete with gas and store, ATM, boat trailer parking onsite, open water picnic areas, tiki hut, lending library, post office - and MORE - ALL IN A GATED COMMUNITY where you can feel safe and secure.

We have a double kayak you can use as many times as you like...again - no charge.

Bring your boat - no charge for putting in at our Venture Out Marina. Our resort's marina has some of the lowest gas prices in the lower Keys for boaters. (Boat and trailer parking is a daily charge by the park.) It is also a fabulous spot for KAYAKS. You can swim or fish from our open water areas. And we have a great big TIKI HUT on the open water where picnicking is perfect!

KEY WEST is a twenty five minute drive down US One. Experience the fabulous SUNSET CELEBRATION every night at Mallory Square. Take a sail to the Dry TOrtugas. And DANCE the night away at Hog's Breath or Sloppy Joe's. Visit the Southernmost House and all of its historical splendor. Or walk the trail of Hemingway - down famous Duval Street. So much to do - right down the road.

Marathon offers good seafood restaurants...one of our favorites is The Keys Fisheries. Casual dining over looking their marina. Seafood is always fresh there! Be sure to try their lobster bisque. Marathon also has 'The Turtle Hospital', a non-profit organization dedicated to helping sea turtles. It's an educational outing your kids will enjoy, plus your admission fee helps their mission.

But do not think you HAVE to go anywhere - lay by the HUGE POOL right on the OPEN WATER and watch the elegant seagulls float overhead as the palms sway. Sun yourself and read a good book and simply relax! Plunge into the BIG JACUZZI and soak your troubles away. Or spend some time with someone you love - holding hands and watching the herons fishing along the waterside! And you do not even have to get in your car to do any of these!

Within five minutes we have a great restaurant - The Square Grouper is our favorite. The Marina Store - walking distance right in our gated community - stocks necessities, such as soft drinks, and BEER and WINE, very convenient!

At the desk area, there is a bullentin board with grocery store and pharmacy loyality cards. We just added a 'Vacation Answer Book' to answer your questions about our vacation home and the surrounding area.

We take great pride in offering our home for your vacation. You will not find a cleaner rental in the area. We know you will have a marvelous time here in the gorgeous FLORIDA KEYS!

THIS IS A NO SMOKING HOUSE. IF YOU SMOKE INSIDE OR THROW YOUR CIGARETTE BUTTS OUTSIDE YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT WILL BE WITHHELD. WE ARE VERY SERIOUS ABOUT THIS RULE!!!!!

One of the Best Spring Break Vacations Ever

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. It was so nice, comfortable, and super clean. You thought of everything! Venture Out is such a great resort and everyone was incredibly friendly. The pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, and "lagoon" area were simply refreshing and the scenery was breathtaking. It was so nice having the passes for the state parks too. Bahia Honda was beautiful and Fort Zack was amazing. My kids enjoyed a little mini-golf at Boondocks too.

I've traveled to the Keys on several occasions (11th trip) and stayed in Key West along with other keys in B & B's and resorts - this by far was one of the best trips we have had because of the accommodations & resort amenities.

We plan to return as soon as possible. As my very hard to please 8 year old stated "this is the perfect place for a vacation". Thanks again!

lovely vacation

  • 4 of 5

Loved staying at your house in this peaceful community. We enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi, and the "lagoon" area in Venture Out. The store was convenient and we took walks every evening. The weather was spectacular so we took trips to Bahia Honda in Big Pine and Sombrero Beach in Marathon. We used the pass you provided for Bahia Honda. We also visited Key West several times at sunset. Your house was comfy and had everything we needed. We did buy a few more beach chairs and an umbrella which we left behind for future visitors. One suggestion we would make is to update the fridge and dishwasher which are both quite dayed. Our ice cream never hardened in the fridge which drained water under the veggie bins twice and the dishwasher never really worked so we hand washed the dishes. These little inconveniences were miner compared to the lovely setting. We would definitely return!

Loved your home

  • 5 of 5

This was without a doubt the best vacation home my family and I have ever stayed in! The house was so clean and everyone in the venture out community was very helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed using the Bahia Honda state pass during the day going to the beach and then would travel to downtown key west at night for dinner and to see all the activities at Mallory Square during sunset. I have already booked my families vacation again for next year and hope to spend many more years making memories in your home! Thanks again!!!

Very cute home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two teenagers. When we first walked into the home the A/C was off and it was 93 degrees. We turned it on, but it took hours for it to cool down. We ended going to out a restaurant because we couldn't stay in there it was so HOT. The ceiling fan in the master bedroom was broke. The toilet in the mater bathroom was broke and ran all weekend we were there. We called the rental company and they did come out and give us a floor fan, but could not fix anything while we were there, said it would have to wait until Monday. The Venture Out community was very nice and clean and the kids loved going to the pool. The marina store was very convenient. It was nice coming back to the house which was very homey instead of a hotel after a long day out. Key West is not that long of a drive which we did one day. There are a few restaurants close by with good atmosphere and service. All in all I would recommend this place. It was decorated very nice. The gated community was also nice.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you had any issues. The air should have been on and cooled when you arrived! The management co called me Friday morning about the fan and commode. I gave them permission to fix these things. They told me that they received an email Thursday evening from you. They immediately contacted service people and could not get anyone till Monday. Sometimes things like this are out of our control but we try hard to fix things in a timely manner. They then brought you a fan to use. After reading your review, it was very positive and we thank you for that. I hope you will stay with us again!

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my kids first trip to Florida and they loved it. The house is clean and well kept and they also have it supplied with everything that you would need. The common areas that are located throughout Venture Out are perfect to go and sit and take in all the beauty that surrounds the area. We also took advantage of the state park pass that you can pick up at the office. We spent an entire day at Bahia Honda State Park it's such a beautiful place with plenty of beach to choose from. I loved the fact that when we would get back to the house it felt more like home than a hotel, we almost forgot that we were on vacation. We also enjoyed the fact that we were in a gated community the guards were always interested in our day and always made sure that we were taken care of. We will definitely be back. one of the hidden treasures of Cudjoe Key, at least to my family.

Great place to meditate, enjoy the view and ocean breeze. Shower in master bedroom had amazing rain shower head. Resort was clean and well staffed. All the folks who run it were helpful and friendly. Pool is huge and clean and also right in the water. Free pass to state parks was a bonus there's also a little store in premises for all your needs. We LOVED this place and will return.
