With your rental you will recieve UNLIMITED ENTRY to BAHIA HONDA BEACH PARK and FORT ZACHARY TAYLOR PARK. Both of these fantastic attractions draw people from all over the world. And you can enjoy them both at NO cost. Each has a wonderful consession stand which makes them great all day trips. 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.

During season there are Pancake Breakfasts every Saturday morning for only $3.00 - all you can eat! Fridays offer fun events and happy hours. And you will enjoy all of the friendly people who live and visit here.

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, plus a guestbook with past guests suggestions of things to do in the area. You can add your comments to our guest book. we welcome your suggestions. 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!!!!!

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.

Perfect week perfect home

  • 5 of 5
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

Lovely Rental Home

  • 4 of 5
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 resort area, some problems with the rental itself

  • 3 of 5
We have rented through VRBO many times. This property had some great points, and some not so great ones as well.
It was clean and the furniture was comfortable. The unit was well decorated. the passes to Bahia Honda Park were wonderful to use.
However, there were some issues. Communication about problems to the owner and the rental company was not great. (no hot water in the 2nd bathroom) Calls to owner and rental co proved fruitless with no callbacks. A visit to the company yielded an answer ; however, the answer was not communicated to us. (they had come to check it out, never told us and we didn't realize there was hot water; because the water had to run so long to become hot, we thought nobody had checked it out).

The WiFi didn't work, and almost everyone who wrote in the guestbook said the same thing. The owner should not advertise that there is WiFi if, in fact, it doesn't work. We wound up going to the rec center in the resort to use our computers.
It may be me, but I was surprised to find sheets on the bed that weren't cotton. I had to scrounge around for cotton sheets for a smaller bed and piece them together. (Some people have a hard time sleeping in polyester- makes some of us perspire).
However, we LOVED the resort the property was situated in, and we will most certainly rent a unit there again. Venture Out was clean, with great amenities and friendly people. We have stayed in the Keys before and know that there are some great rentals there. This one just did not compare favorably to some others we have stayed in.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you had a bad experience. We have had so many great reviews, as you can see most are 4/5 or 5/5 ratings. I also went back through my voice mails, e-mails and phone calls and I received NO correspondence from you what so ever while you were staying at our place.
Yes, the internet no working is very frustrating and I do apologize for that. This was a Comcast issue and hopefully it won’t happen again. If you would ever want to be a guest again, I will be more than happy to comp you two free nights on your next 7 night stay.
