Clean, Comfortable, Convenient!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this home with two friends (our ages are 25, 25, and 29). We were welcomed by Amelia, who told us how everything in the house worked, and showed us a book of brochers for restaurants. The home looked and smelled very clean. We were delighted to see that there was a chest full of board games, and also 6 or 7 bikes. There was a queen sized bed, a futon, and an air mattress. The kitchen was quaint and had all of our cooking needs. The home is located right off of US 1, which is the main road to get anywhere in the Keys. We swam with dolphins at Dolphin Cove, and snorkeled with Quiescence (who took us by boat to some reefs in John Pennekamp Park). Both of these places were just five minutes up the road. We also took a bike ride, and played board games and cooked on the days we wanted to relax. Roy called us to check in on how we were doing, and gave us many suggestions for where to eat out, and which places to avoid. We chose to drive to Key West one day, and returned to the cottage that night. (that's all the time we really needed in Key West, and we avoided staying in an overpriced hotel). Key largo is great for snorkeling and has many beautiful fish on its reefs (you really need to try snorkleing if you come here!), and if you want to go to more of “picture pretty” beach, you can drive down to Annes Beach or Key West. Roy always returned my calls and emails promptly which made me feel comfortable. All in all we had a great stay!

Cute little place. Absolutely spotlessly clean!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great stay here. One of the CLEANEST places I've ever stayed. The owner is wonderful. He stayed in touch, personally made sure we had everything we needed and even guided us to his favorite local restaurant when we arrived! Small but everything you need to be comfortable. Including an outdoor grill, equipped kitchen and even a washer/dryer! The wifi worked great. There is a little traffic noise in the morning but not at night. It didn't bother us (and I'm a light sleeper) and we both slept in very well. You will need a car to visit beaches etc but there are some local bars and coffee shops within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again.

Great location to explore the Keys

  • 5 of 5
Very clean, well maintained and good value for money. Pleasantly met upon arrival for overview of property and a couple helpful pointers about the local area. Property is a great home base to explore Keys with plenty of restaurants and activities within a couple miles. Owner has a few bikes to ride to the park or grocery store.

Property offers a nice kitchen stocked with dishes, pots/pans and utensils. However, we did not take full advantage of it. It was too easy to eat at the wide choices of restaurants.

We felt one issue is the traffic noise out the back of the house and a little annoying while trying to sleep. However, this should not be a show stopper and recommend the property for a no frills budget traveler. Owner was excellent to work with in planning stages.

Great alternative to hotels!

  • 5 of 5
We decided at the last minute to take a short trip to the Keys with our dogs and were lucky enough to find this hidden gem. It was comfortable, clean and just as described. The owner was very communicative via phone & e-mail. The manager who let us in was extremely nice & showed us were everything was. I will say this - the plush towels in the bathroom were much nicer than you would get at a hotel! The place was spotless. The kitchen was well-stocked with all small appliances, cookware and dinnerware. Parking was super simple. I was concerned with the proximity to US1 but it wasn't at all bothersome and actually quite convenient. There are board games, and books galore. TV has both VHS & DVD though you have to bring your own if you want to watch them. WiFi worked great. . The owner called to check on us at the beginning of our trip and at the end and was prompt with our deposit return. All in all a very good experience and I would stay there again as well as recommend to a friend.

Great location in Key Largo

  • 4 of 5
This is a great little house sitting walking distance from restaurants and bars in Key Largo. If it is a little more than walking distance, just use one of the bikes provided! The house is extremely clean and well appointed with anything you need for your stay. The price is right and it is pet friendly.

The only small negative is that it is very close to the highway but that's also a plus as the location is prime.

Roy and Amelia were available for advice about activities and other local questions. Couldn't ask for better response. Thanks for a great weekend!!

Nice jumping off point for exploring the Keys

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I rented this house for a week and enjoyed our visit. Roy (the owner) was very accommodating and frequently checked up on us to make sure things were going well or work through issues. The home is conveniently located just off highway 1 near the Conch house. From the house, we were able to explore much of the Keys, including Key Largo, and day trips to Key West and Marathon (where we enjoyed Sombrero Beach).

My wife is sensitive to noise while sleeping but we didn't have any issues with street traffic.

The house is "no frills" but has basic amenities that made our trip easier. There is a TV with cable. We enjoyed use of the kitchen and were able to make many meals in the home. You will have use of pots, pans, plates, utensils, glasses, and pretty much anything else you would have at home. The house was clean.

I would recommend this vacation rental to a friend as an excellent alternative to some of the area hotels which are likely more expensive.
