Perfect home and location
Submitted: March 15, 2013
Stayed: December 2012
We were fortunate enough to have a 2.5 month stay in this wonderful home. (Dec 15th to Feb 28th). The home was easy to find and we were impressed with how clean it was upon our arrival. The home is located near the end of a "dead-end" street and it is in a very quiet neighborhood. A rare find in the Keys. If you have kids, with a watchful eye, they can ride bikes, roller blade, or walk through the neighborhood safely.
The beds are very comfortable, bathrooms are very nice, and the living room has a newer, fairly large, TV. The kitchen has pretty much everything that you will need for a short or long stay. The screened porch has lots of seating and overlooks the seawall/docking area by the channel.
If you like to boat or fish, you will love the location of this home. Over our extended stay, we had winds from about every direction possible, and you can almost always get out in your boat. Pine Channel is kind of like a long lake that extends about 10 miles from the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico. If it is too rough to go out on the ocean, you have wonderful fishing and boating possibilities right in Pine channel.
Key West is only 28 miles away so we did visit/shop there a couple of times. Lots of activities and some very good restaurants. Always a fun place to visit, but it was great to come back to our quiet neighborhood at the end of the day.
The locals in the neighborhood are very nice, friendly, and helpful people. The owners of this home are like that as well. They bought a new freezer for me to use to keep my fishing ice, bait, chum, and other stuff in. They also let me use their live bait pen so I could keep fresh live bait at the seawall. They make sure that you are enjoying your stay and will answer any questions you have in detail.
Hopefully, we will be returning to this wonderful home and location in the future.
