Guestbook comments from the owner
Cairn (owner)

My parents, our dogs, Brian, and I rented Kokomo 9/11/10 - 9/18/10. I just wanted to tell you that it was the best vacation we have ever had. I live in West Palm Beach, FL and they live in Charlotte, NC. I have been to the Keys previously but my parents had not. We definitely plan to return next year for a week if not sooner. We have also shared your website as well as our beautiful photos with family and friends as they may want to rent one of your properties.



Kokomo is truly a beautiful, serene place. We absolutely loved the property as well as the house and all of the amenities. I saw from the water your two other properties on Morton Street which I had looked on the Internet as well. All are stunning! We will certainly pass along to others our great experience, and you can expect to get future renters by our word of mouth. Again, we will rent from you again in the future. I just wish I could buy the property from you!



I also wanted to tell you that we were very impressed with Donna and Doug, the property managers. We had no real problems except that the air conditioning our second day wasn't working properly and it was taken care of within an hour. That is unbelievable service. Donna and Doug were so kind and cordial; very good people. I also left a set of water skiis there which Donna so kindly retrieved after I called her a couple of days later and is storing them for me at her residence. In addition, I left a necklace in the bedroom and the lady who arrived to clean the residence as we were leaving was kind enough to advise me of this and gave me the necklace which has great sentimental value to me. It is not often that we are privileged enough to deal with such honest, genuine, good people. I just wanted to let you know that these people are doing such a great job, and my family and I really appreciated that!



I will look forward to renting from you again in the near future.



Thank you,



Beth

American Paradise Kokomo

  • 1 of 5
This was a very disappointing vacation. The hot tub heater did not work. The smell that seemed to be coming from the piles of seaweed and trash in the cove and dock area was terrible the entire week. Several chairs of pool furniture were so frayed on the edges they were not usable. The thermostats in the house were locked and could not be adjusted to allow the house to be cooled to a comfortable temperature on the second story.

I am one to do extensive research online when searching for a family vacation home. I use VRBO and HomeAway every year to find the best home possible.
We were fortunate enough to find Kokomo had and opening the week our 5 children got out of school. The photos online do not do this property justice. The house far exceeded our expectations! The property manager was excellent to deal with and the owner the same. We did not need to make one phone call to the manager during our entire stay.
The place was extremely clean and organized with lots of little touches you normally do not see in rental properties.
We fished off the dock every morning and evening, we saw lots of fish, rays, turtles, dolphins and even lobster and crabs while snorkling off the dock.
We had planned on day trips away from the house every day and changed our mind a few days because the pool was so nice to just relax in.
The layout of the house is great, most of the time you are outside enjoying the pool or dock, we only came inside to eat dinner or sleep, to much to do outside, we even had a few iguanas visit us during the early evening.
Dont be afraid to rent this property, you will not be disappointed, we will be back in 2015.

Thanks to the owners and property management for a better than expected vacation

Nice, but strange layout

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful property, secluded and private, gorgeous pool, and spectacular dock. Gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. Well appointed kitchen. Only complaint is kitchen is small, as is adjoining dining room. But the living room is upstairs via a winding staircase. We found ourselves crowding into the dining room - which was too small for our group, and no one really wanted to go up to the living room, or when they did, it split the group. I'd recommend the owners tear out the second bedroom on the first floor and turn it into the livingroom so you have an open living area. Then turn the living room into additional bedrooms. That would make the house absolutely perfect. Internet was spotty and TV in downstairs bedroom didn't work. Caretaker couldn't get it fixed while we were there.

Love Fishing!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Kokomo was in fact considered "Paradise" for us...it was exactly what we were looking for! VERY private...I don't think we saw a single neighbor on shore or any people on the water off our dock our entire week stay. It was so relaxing, refreshing, comfortable and everything we wanted in our first vacation together. The house was EXACTLY as the pictures portray it to be. I was disappointed to hear, on our arrival, that the hot tub was not working properly, BUT the very next day Doug and Donna had it up and running and it was enjoyed immediately. They were very attentive to our needs...including needing propane for the grill cause we are big time grillers for all meals. We even fell asleep in the hammock a couple of nights...until little drops of rain awoke us. From the early morning sunrises of enjoying a cup of coffee on the dock to late evenings enjoying a Sunset Ale watching the sunset, we could not of asked for anything more beautiful. We fished EVERY day off the dock from morning hours til late into the evenings. A manitee even visited us twice RIGHT under our dock! So amazing!! We were unable to rent a boat until our last two days due to weather. But when the weather permitted...we visited Silver Palm Marine, only 3 minutes up the road from the house. Dion was fantastic with working with us to get us a boat and get us on the waters to fish. Silver Palm is so close, so convenient and VERY friendly for your boat or fishing rental needs. That brings me to one disappointment...why is there no fishing equipment at the rental house for people to enjoy? We traveled on a plane, so bringing a lot of fishing equipment would be very difficult and expensive for baggage costs, as I'm sure it is for a lot of other visitors. We had to go out and purchase everything from poles, lures, bait, lobster tickler gear, hooks, etc...expensive it did get. We didn't mind so much because we used all the stuff we purchased everyday. At the end of our stay we were going to leave the $80 poles and other equipment there, at the house, for other guests to enjoy. But, when we found out when items, such as these, are left behind by guests they are removed and placed into a storage shed off the property. Why not leave these items for others to enjoy? Knowing that information, we took our poles and sold them for half of what we spent in our travels back to the airport.
Our stay was more than we expected and very much enjoyed!! Thank you!!!!

Experience Kokomo

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What a wonderful vacation spot for family or friends... We leave Kokomo with misty eyes and a longing to return..
The house and grounds are wonderful!... To fish off our own dock and catch the day's lunch was terrific!
The weather couldn't have cooperated any better then it did...80's everyday with soft gentle breezes...
Stepping into a warm swimming pool or lounging poolside with a drink and a good book past many a day.

Once you visit Kokomo you too will want to return again.

great place, but left itching!

  • 3 of 5
I thought there was sand here? I didn't see any.
Nice place for our event ( private wedding) . had a great time, beautiful setting. finally got the pool filled, and warmed up after a few days. We had to fill the pool, because it was low, and the heater didn't start till the pool was full? seems to be a common theme with pool issues here.
Hot tub worked good, but could only stay in it for 10-15 minutes, the chemical vapors were burning our eyes, I assume Chlorine?
A few days into the stay, most of us started to get little welts on our body,looked like bug bites ( nosee-ums). The smell from all of the sea weed washed up on the rocks was pretty strong when the wind was right.
After our stay there, we all went home. A few of us still had small welts on our body, and they itched like crazy. Went to the doctor to investigate, turned out to be an infection from bacteria in the hot tub, called FOLLICULITIS. had to get treatment.

The house inside was nice, comfy, and served as a nice vacation place. Everyone enjoyed themselves and made the best of it. I would definately look into the smell out by the water though, smelled like rotten eggs, and clean the hot tub please.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your feedback. I am glad your group enjoyed their stay and you found the house comfortable. I am very sorry that the No-seeums were so bad when you were there and you got bit. I think this is what caused your itching and then they got infected. I have had it happen to me as well. The Mosquito Control spray regularly and it kills some of the noseeums but their life cycle is shorter then mosquitoes so they come back sooner. I have found repellent use in the late afternoons/dusk really helps. We do keep the Chlorine level in the hot tub on the higher side of the recommended levels due to hygiene. Maybe we could cut it back a little. We regularly drain and refill the hot tub. Between drainings we use shock and chlorine along with high quality micro filters to keep the water clean and clear. The smell of rotten eggs is the grass that collects on the rocks during storms. I understand there was a storm just before you arrived. During a storm we experience higher tides and the grass gets caught on the rocks and doesn’t get taken back out until another similar high tide. We wish everyone to have a wonderful experience at our houses sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas.
