We fell in love with the Florida Keys back in the 1980's when we took our first trip there. We toured the Keys from the water in a catamaran. We bought our first place there shortly after. We love owning all these properties in the Keys because it gives us a reason to come down from Wisconsin a couple times a year. We are looking to retire to the Keys someday.

Bob, Mark or Robin purchased this house boat in 2004

The beauty of this island and it's surroundings was to irresistible to turn down.

This island is so beautiful and tucked away in this amazing cove surrounded by mangroves. It was the perfect place to put our houseboat. If you like camping or RV'ing, this place will blow your mind.

The houseboat fit our needs perfectly for the “camping” we did while we were there. We enjoyed the open-air feel and “back to nature” aspect of Quiet Cove Key. While I enjoyed using the fishing poles for catching some fresh “grunts” for lunch and dinner on a couple of days, we got the most use out of the kayaks………..definitely a nice addition. The location of Quiet Cove Key is very good, also. The view from most angles is of un-populated or un-developed land or water, and the proximity to civilization is more of a security blanket than an intrusion. The week seemed all-too-short. I've already shown the photos to the folks in my office and they were very impressed/envious. We’ll definitely keep this option for vacation in mind for future occasions.

"What an Amazing Experience!!"

"We so enjoyed our trip to Quiet Cove Key & the houseboat. John & the guys who helped us get set up went way above & beyond what we had expected. The entire experience was above and beyond anything we could of imagined. The solitude and privacy was amazing, we were greeted by dolphins in the mornings & evenings almost every day we were there. The Pelican’s were fun to watch, the kayaks were cool, and there was fishing poles & snorkel gear. If you are a camper this is the place for you, if you are a hotel person than probably not. The Island Fish company was about a 10 minute boat trip and had amazing food & service. The Holiday inn express in Marathon is also a very nice place to stay while waiting to board your boat or island. We told every person we talked to at all of these places that Rent My Island .com is the best kept secret of the Keys.".
