Guestbook comments from the owner
HI, I am the owner, diane powell. I only added this site this past month...may 04. We have plenty of comments in the guest book I leave at the house. But, I'm not sure many people will use this after they have left.

Mostly, people have commented on how much fun they have had and that they want to return. I have had a few comments on how much nicer our place is in person. The pool is a big hit. I really haven't had any negative comments. diane powell

A PRIVATE OASIS IN THE LOWER KEYS

  • 5 of 5
We had a small family reunion at the Powell houses. The property looked good, so we were thrilled when it exceeded our expectations in many ways!

The owner was easy to work with and very gracious. She provided several extra photos of the property, and always answered emails promptly. The photos were very accurate, by the way. They actually don't do the place justice, as they don't convey how private and homey this property really is.

The yard was large and nicely landscaped. Parking was roomy and easy to navigate, even with multiple cars. The pool was well situated between the two houses, and the little tiki bar and screened porch provided shade near by. There were plenty of chairs for lounging, speakers that allowed us to have music both inside and out, plus two hammocks with great views of the water. The house was extremely well stocked with beach towels, and there was a great pair of washers and dryers in each house to keep up with the demand. There were two docks: one on the bay that easily fit the 24 foot boat we rented, and a smaller dock on the canal, which was a great place for the kids to fish. The fish cleaning table was large, and the hose was handy for cleaning up the boat and fishing gear. The freezer at the back of the house was a nice touch, giving us a place to keep bait and fish fillets from our catches.

The guest house was every bit as nice as the main house. It had a full kitchen, which was nice as we didn't have to walk over to the other house to get things. We really enjoyed the porches on the front (one open and one screened). They were a great place to sit and watch the water while having our morning coffee, or having a drink in the evening.

The manager was very quick to respond when we contacted him. He was also very knowledgeable about fishing in the area, and gave us good advice on how to rig up our gear for the area.

We really enjoyed that the area around the house was quiet, but we could easily drive down to Key West within a half hour. We also enjoyed snorkeling at nearby Looe Key, and taking drives on Big Pine and No Name Keys in the evening to see the key deer.

We would gladly rent the Powell houses again!

What an amazing week!!!! Thank you so much Diane and Smitty for blessing our family with such a grand property. The house, guest house, and grounds are immaculate and absolutely beautiful. We spent one day in Key West, the rest of the vacation we spent on the property because you don't want to leave. Also, thanks to Eddie (manager), he is so kind and saw to any needs you may have. We will definitely return to this true piece of paradise!!! Thanks again Diane for an awesome week and for your hospitality.

GREAT FAMILY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time my family has rented this home with friends. Two small families easily stay in the main home and the guest house makes this an option for a bigger group.The sunrise is breathtaking and the house is wonderful. My husband rents a boat and has it delivered directly to the house for fishing and it only a 20-25 minutes drive to Key West. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the ocean. You will not be disappointed with this home.

PERFECT PLACE FOR COUPLE OR LARGE FAMILY!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home in November for our 15 yr wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The owner was prompt and friendly when answering several email questions we had before deciding to rent. The home is positioned well on the property to enjoy the beautiful water and sunrise. The pool was warm - heated as it said it would. There are some pool floaties and life jackets available. There is a tiki hut/bar stool/table area with very sturdy chairs and lounge chairs for enjoying a cup of coffee, or a drink. The property is 2 secluded, well manicured acres with palm trees and tropical plants which added to the overall experience and made it all the more peaceful and quiet. The property manager was nearby in case we needed anything and we met him when he came to mow. He was friendly, pleasant and non-evasive, came to mow, asked us how the stay was so far and if we needed anything or had any questions, got in, mowed and left. The home is well stocked with all the needed items from pots/pans, spices to cook with, to towels for the pool. The screened in porch connects to the living room with wide sliding doors that open to let in the breeze in from the water. The home has nice speaker system with a dial so you can also enjoy the music outside by the pool. The master bedroom in the main house (property also has nice guest house if you have large family get together) is on the opposit side from the large bedroom with 2 queen beds, and mattress very comfortable. There is an outdoor shower, private dock you can fish off of, kayacks, and bicycles for additional things to do. The home is about a 25-30 minute drive from Key West so close, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists. If we stay in the Keys again, we would rent this place again w/o looking at any others. A little pricey for us, but so glad we splurged as it was well worth it. We also had a late flight and although check out time is 10 AM the home owner was gracious and let us stay a later into the afternoon. Overall experience in renting, staying and getting deposit back was excellent.

A TASTE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Powell home on our vacation in June 2011. WOW!!! it was definately more than we expected. From the accommadations to the view everything was MORE than we expected. My husband and children enjoyed the Guest house while our very dear friends took the main house. As Lea said, it made going home hard. Thank you for opening your home to us. We really enjoyed ourselves and would likely return. God Bless

LEA MCQUINN FORT MYERS FLORIDA

We have traveled all over the country and stayed in many types of resorts and timeshares. My husband is 46, I am 39, my sons are 14 and 11. We stayed in the Powell home with another couple and 5 additional children between the ages of 14-17. Every single one of us has agreed that this was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had. We have all been to the Keys before on several occasions. It was The Powell House that upgraded our memories of The Keys from Wonderful to Exceptional and Unforgettable. Our children daily walked out the porch doors and snorkeled or Kayaked right behind the house. Then, they would take a nice relaxing hot shower outside and slip into the refreshing pool. They even had space to play football and tag games in the front yard. The kids and Dads caught large fish off the docks everynight. This is the first time I can truly remember not wanting to leave and furthermore, missing The Powell home when I returned to my very large and nice home in Fort Myers. It is hard to put into words what I am trying to express, I suppose that for the very reasonable rates that The Powell house was asking, I wasn't sure if it was going to be as nice and accomidating as some of the other properties that were being offered at higher rates. I am certain that I was wrong. My husband and I agreed that this is the home that if we ever were in the market to buy an estate like this and it was for sale..we wouldn't even bother looking at any other homes. Honestly Fantastic.

Owner's Response: What more can I say. We love our place too. We are pleased that others have been able to enjoy our home and all the perks that go with living in the Florida Keys.
