We stayed at This property in October for two weeks.they have thought of everything,shampoo,conditioner,toilet rolls,tissues,pump soap and ordinary soap in the bathroom.
Kitchen was well equipped,and coffee maker,juice maker,large stove and fridge freezer.the only thing that I found that let this down is the fact that it is a large villa that has been separated into four apartments,and the second week we had some very noisy people above us who loved moving furniture.the other down side was that although they say that there are new mattresses on the beds I found them very uncomfortable,also for two weeks there were no clean sheets we had to wash and dry the ones that were on the bed,apart from that this is a nice place to stay,and we can recommend the Cuban Restaurant up the road excellent value.
Wow! What a place, we loved it. The listing was very accurate and the amenities were more than we could ask for. It had everything we needed and then some....whether it was kayaks, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, fishing gear, beach umbrellas, etc, this place had it. It was very secluded, quiet, and convenient to Marathon and Islamorada. The property was very clean and well maintained. Jerry could not have been a better host with all the details when we started our stay. The pictures are nice on the website, but up close and personal the views are even better! We would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys seclusion, but also enjoys being close to so many activities. Thanks, Jerry and we plan on returning in the near future!
My new husband and I chose this gorgeous villa for our honeymoon and loved staying here. The location could not be any more convenient and yet it seemed so secluded and private. Beachfront accommodations abound in the Keys, but being on the water in an inlet provided a view of nature that was breathtaking. Enjoying my morning coffee while watching the fish, crabs, birds, rays, etc was a treat I will never forget. Even better was the opportunity to get even closer and kayak. The inclusion of the kayaks is a fantastic perk, as well as the other included supplies. Flying in, we did not bring beach chairs and a cooler, but there is a storage shed with everything you will need to go enjoy a day at the beach. Speaking of inclusions - the iPad is a fantastic one, we were able to leave our laptop at home!
The beds are comfy and the place has a lived in, but very clean and well cared for vibe. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to others going to the Keys. Jerry, the owner was very nice and knowledgeable.
After a 'mad' week on South Beach Miami this was the perfect place to unwind. From the well equipped appartment to sitting on the dock watching Ospreys, Rays, Manatees etc etc. Kayaking around the waterways off the patio was briliant. Thanks Jerry for your hospitality.
The house is reasonably maintained, it is not made ??yesterday, and yet it is in good condition. The location of the air condition is not optimal but finds functional.
You will probably not find a house with a better location if you want a quiet holiday with good scenery.
In the house there is a range of facilities, among other kayaks, the kids always have something to do and were therefore also closer to nature.
The owner was responsible for the transfer and was extremely flexible in terms of arrival. With the transfer came a very committed introduction to other facilities in the local area which then was a great joy for the whole family
All in all a wonderful resort that I will always recommend to others.

We spent the last week in July at Jerry's place and with such an accommodating and informative host you could not fail to chill from the moment you arrived. Plenty to do if you want to be part of the Keys, but an idyllic oasis to come back to and wake up in or just while away the hours. A haven of wildlife, sunsets and peace. Really useful and thoughtful items included were kayaks, life vests, snorkelling kit, torches, binoculars, shampoo and a whole lot more! Great laundry room too.
As Jerry had explained before we arrived the summer is much more about the marine life and the winter months about the birds, but we were still treated to an array of birds including a beautiful osprey as well as turtles, sting-rays and many species of fish. Our fellow residents next door also spotted a sand shark! Must visits are the not for profit Turtle Hospital and Dolphin Research Centre - very worthwhile contributing to their causes and a trip to Robbies is fun for fishing, eating or just hanging out with a beer!
ENJOY - you can't fail to........
