David purchased this house in 2002
There is nothing like the Florida Keys. Great fishing and coral reefs very close and easy to access. We enjoy the quick ocean access and ability to just hop on your boat for a fantastic sunset cruise in a matter of minutes.
Private dock behind the house. Great fishing days and peaceful nights. Great location and the best restaurants in the Keys.
We came down from the bitter cold of Wisconsin to get away for the week down in the Keys. Capricorn Cove was beyond perfect. There was plenty of room for 7 adults and we all had beds to sleep in. The outdoor sitting area right on the canal was beautiful. The water was great and super refreshing. Just keep an eye on the tide cuz at low tide the ladder doesn't go all the way into the water and makes it difficult to get out. That didn't really stop us though, we still jumped right in. When we got there David was actually there tiding up from the previous renters which was great. He gave us A LOT of great information on what to do and where to go. He gave us some great snorkeling places to check out since we were renting a boat. Sadly the water was a tad to choppy to make it to the reefs and see anything but the information David provided was excellent. He was very accessible while down there too, just had to call if needed to. I can go on and on about how great this place was for us but I will run out of room. Plain and simple if you are looking for a nice, quiet, and affordable place to stay then STAY HERE! If we ever venture down to the Keys again out first place to look to stay will be Capricorn Cove. We didn't want to leave!!
I rented Capricorn Cove for a group get-away in August, 2014 and could not have chosen a better place. There were 8 adults and this house had the perfect layout for us – inside and out! Comfortable beds, convenient and well-stocked kitchen and plenty of space. The outside patio was huge – ½ covered by an awning. Although we never saw rain, it provided great shade. The canal was perfect for swimming and had easy access to the ocean. We used the bikes and kayak that came with the house. Paddle the Keys delivered 8 other kayaks and paddleboards that we kept tied out at the dock the entire time – reasonable daily rates with delivery and pick up right at the house. Grocery stores, drug stores and plenty of restaurants were located just a short drive away. David, the homeowner was extremely accommodating and never more than a phone call/text away. I highly recommend this property and look forward to staying here again in the future.
Our days started with coffee and breakfast on the covered patio overlooking a beautiful canal; and ended with cocktails and barbequing while watching the sky turn multicolors as the sun set. In between we took our small boat out to the sandbar every day to swim/float in the swimming pool clear water; we fished 5 miles offshore on a day when the seas were calmer than our local lake; and we took day trips to Key West and Coconut Grove/Miami South Beach. Ultimately, Capricorn Cove called us back to bask in the warm sun and the peacefulness of the setting as the tarpon rolled in the canal; the Manatee came by to say hello; and incredibly comfortable beds prepared us for the next day of adventure…or simply reading a book on the patio.
As for the home itself, everything we needed was provided, and worked wonderfully, including the air conditioning (yes, we are southern folks that are spoiled). We cooked lots of meals in the well equipped kitchen and the large living area provided ample space for our family to hang out, socialize, or just nap.
Our family of 6 (Mom & Dad; 16 year old girl; 19 year old boy; 24 year old boy and girl) had an incredible week that ended yesterday, June 7th 2014. We truly hated to leave, but since we have jobs in Atlanta, and the Owner mentioned that another family was coming in for the next week, we reluctantly departed to return to reality. Capricorn Cove is beautiful, and the Owner's hospitality in welcoming us upon our arrival, helping us put our boat in the water, and giving us tips about the area, was a wonderful way to begin the experience. He is highly accessible to answer questions, and a true gentleman. Capricorn Cove was perfect for us.
We enjoyed a great family vacation tied to a wedding in Tavernier. The house was perfect, very comfortable and had the amenities that we needed. We really liked having our coffee on the covered patio in the morning, watching the fish jump in the water. We saw a manatee the first day we were there which was very exciting. Our youngest son made use of the kayak several times. The owners were very nice and attentive to our needs. I could not have been more pleased with the vacation and the property.
Spring Break 2012 for my children, grandchildren and me was absolutely wonderful. With 4 bedrooms we had plenty of room. There was plenty of room in the living room for a movie night for all of us. The house was very clean and maintained. The kitchen was very well equipped for the six of us. There wasn't anything it was lacking. The outside patio was where we spent most of our time while we were there and not out exploring the Keys. The covered /uncovered patio is why I picked this home for vacationing and it was exactly as it looked. The Kayak was great. We used it every evening we were at home. The boys also fished in the canal. The location of this home was perfect. We were just a couple of hours away from a spring training game or could head the opposite direction to Key West and be there for a sunset party and make it home at night at a decent time. Harris Park is very near by and is a wonderful place to swim and spend the day, especially if you have young children. The owners were very helpful in giving us ideas of where to go, what to do and what to see. I would recommend this house for a family, 4 couples or a getaway for the girls! It was great!
What a wonderful week at Capricorn Cove! The house was clean and neat and well-appointed. Four bedrooms and two baths, and the large indoor living/dining area accommodated our whole family for dinners and lunches and catching a special TV show when we chose to stay inside. However, we spent most of the time in the nice shade provided by the large outside covered deck which has a great wooden table, perfect for early morning coffee, lunch gatherings, and evening dinners. The lower open deck area was perfect for those in the group who wanted to catch the sun--and there was plenty. The dock also nicely accommodated the 24' boat we rented for several of the days during our stay. Use of two mountain bikes and a two-person kayak was most appreciated--as were the nice appliances, including a brand new washer and dryer. There were plenty of linens and towels, and other amenities that made our stay most enjoyable. And the owner was always immediately responsive to questions when we initially inquired about the property and when we booked our stay, as well as when we arrived and about to depart. We would highly recommend booking a stay at Capricorn Cove.
