Perfect Thanksgiving Week Getaway!

Fran's Place was beautifully furnished, immaculately clean, and centrally located in the Middle Keys, close to everything. We found everything we needed to cook a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and eating on the screened porch overlooking the water was great. Sunset Park and Inch Beach were wonderful and the bikes that are provided made it fun to get around. We found the bedroom set-up perfect for two couples and there was nice privacy. We visited Key West, the Dolphin Research Center, and a couple of great restaurants. The guys loved the par 3 golf course. We can't wait to return.

Paradise Found !!!

Fran's place is beautiful (the photos don't do it justice), it's really homely & very well equipped. The house is just a short stroll or bike ride to Inch Beach which was like paradise and there are also 3 restaurants within walking distance, great cocktails at Sparky's Landing & Cabana Breeze & lovely food at all 3. Caught several fish from the dock & it was a real bonus having the fishing rods & bikes to use. We had a fantastic time & I'm sure we will be back.

I stayed here with a friend and our moms and my friend's sister over Xmas, and it was perfect! The house is clean and comfortable, located in a quiet, safe community, and stocked with everything you might need - beach towels, bikes, spices in the cupboard, dishes galore, etc. We did much of our cooking at home, but also enjoyed meals at the Keys Fisheries (stone crab claws), Blue Heaven in Key West, and the nearby 7 Mile Marina. We did some fishing in the canal, were visited by egrets and pelicans, went to Curry Hammock State Park (the thatch palm nature trail is a must), and Bahia Honda, watched the sunset every night, either from Key West or from the 12th St. park right in Key Colony Beach, and saw the Key deer on Big Pine Key. We really couldn't have asked for a better house or a better vacation. Fran was always very responsive to our questions, and we very much enjoyed the photo book on the coffee table that explained the history of the "little house in the Keys" and the family photos, etc. I sort of hate to rave so much because I want to think it'll be free the next time we want to visit, but I just can't say enough about this house, its location, and the amenities. What a treasure of a place. Thanks again, Fran!

Excellant place to stay and explore.

Fran's place is fantastic. My wife and I stayed with our two 16 year old nephews from the UK and loved every minute. The owners are so helpful, the booking and payment process was refreshingly easy with plenty of correspondence. Fran's place is like home from home, everything you could ever want. It is immaculate, exceptionally clean with so much thought and effort gone into establishing such a lovely holiday home. My nephews particularly enjoyed the fishing from the dock at the house, we had numerous BBQ's and they enjoyed the use of the bikes to and from the beach.
I cannot recommend Frans place enough, both my wife and I have travel all over the world and we have never been this spoilt, a lucky find. It is in such a peaceful location, we spent many an evening sat on the dock with a glass of wine just wish we could have stayed longer.
