This home is so lovely. We had the greatest time. We enjoyed the kayak so, so much. I personally would like to thank you for letting us enjoy your home.
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!
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!!!
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.
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.
This was an adorable clean 2 bedroom cottage. House was very clean and nicely decorated. Great kitchen and eating area. Bedrooms comfortable , extra pillows! AC rocked as did ice maker both necessities in the keys. One minute walk to beautiful view of sunrise and sunset on the water. Picnic table and benches. 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. Everything and everyone was perfect
Very clean, very nice home.
Pros: Great pool, clean, safe and gated community, close to water, home was well decorated, all the conveniences you need, plenty of room to move around, even with 5 people, free wi-fi, selection of cable stations, easy check-in and helpful security staff.
Cons: Bed in master was very uncomfortable, further from pool than expected, bikes were not included (thought I read that they were, maybe not), not much in immediate area without driving a distance, microwave was broken, water was off the morning we left. One morning I stayed home to rest my back from sleeping in the bed, and the electric went off for 4 hours to check circuits, leaving me to sit in the heat with no A/C.
It was a good trip. An unforeseen Act of God caused it to rain for 2 of the 4 days. I would recommend this property due to the cleanliness and price. However, if commuting to Key West very much, it's too far. I'd stay closer.
Great Location, 25 minutes to beautiful Key West. 20 minutes to Bahia Honda State Park which has a lovely beach, with great snorkeling. ( With your stay at our property, you will recieve free access to the Bahia Honda and Fort Zachary State Park )There are beach chairs, noodles, Boogie Boards and some sand kids toys for you to use while at the beach. These items are under the back porch or in the small building out back. We also furnish a two person Kayak for your use.
