Great week in Keys.

Spent spring break here and could not have made a better choice for a house on the water. Owners were helpful, house was more than we were expecting, clean, roomy, good location. Hope to spend more than a week there next year. 5 manatees spent the morning at our dock one day, highlight of trip. Thanks again

Great House on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 24, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
I spent two months in this waterfront house on the Gulf and enjoyed every minute of it. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and there are bike paths right around the corner for yourselves or walking your four legged friend. The views overlooking the protected lagoon to the Gulf are spectacular. The set up of the bedrooms is ideal as it gives each guest their own privacy separate from the other. The kitchen is large and has everything you could need and it overlooks the Gulf as does the dining area and master bedroom. And loads of closet space! The huge deck that goes across the back of the house on the water side is perfect for enjoying the incredible weather and is situated such that you can enjoy sun or shade. I had my 22' boat with me and the docking facilities are extremely well thought out. Since you are right on the Gulf you are minutes from the Atlantic Ocean either via the 7 Mile Bridge, which takes you to Sombrero Reef for incredible diving, or you can head out through the Vaca Cut. All the comforts of home await you at this house. You will not be disappointed. And the icing on the cake was the visits from the manatee and turtles. The Manatee (I named him George) came right up beside my boat at the dock. If available, I would stay here year after year. Great house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Linda for your kind words. We work hard to make our clients stay affordable, comfortable and fun. Happy your canine friend Lucy enjoyed herself likewise. Rod Duncan, DVM

Christmas in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 9, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
The house was everything we had hoped for and more. We could not have asked for a nicer, prettier, cleaner place to stay. The view was to die for and we enjoyed time on the deck, porch, and docks. My son and his girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks. The dock access was perfect, the sunsets beautiful. We spent the week there for Christmas and Santa did not disappoint!! Perfect location to groceries, Key West, and Islamarado. My son caught a monster sailfish and had a blast diving for lobster. The owner was very helpful and an absolute pleasure to work with. We are already planning summer and Christmas vacations again to stay at this perfect place in Paradise. We have been going to the Keys for years and have stayed at many places but this by far tops them all! Can't wait to go back!

Fabulous Vacation Home for Families and Friends

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. Has all of the amenities of home and then some. Easy access to both the Bay and the Ocean. Great fishing and diving! Awesome sunsets, and wildlife (right at the dock or in the cove. Turtles, manatees, birds and fish). Loved the use of kayaks! Stay in for a home cooked meal or visit one of the many restaurants in the area. Our family really had a great vacation! We will definitely come again! Thanks again to Dr. and Mrs. Duncan for allowing us to stay in their lovely home!

Marathon Vacation

This is a gorgeous home that is maintained in great condition. We loved the layout, the location on a lagoon, and the amenities that came with the house. Everything was clean and in good condition. The owners were very helpful with all arrangements. We particularly liked the hot tub and kayaks provided with the house. We would love to return again and recommend the property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Great to have you stay with us. Sorry about the hot tub cover blowing off. Those things can happen! We have since reinforced the straps. Come back anytime and receive our 10% returning-client discount on future rentals.
