We always make the best of our family adventures for the six of us, with the understanding that there will be fantastic and also less desirable moments with all experiences. Spent many hours looking for the right place and location for our 1st trip to the Keys. We knew for the most part what to expect when we arrived from prior reviews and conversations with Victor addressing concerns. We don't stand still for too long, so most mornings we were out the door by 7am and didn't return until evening. The one morning that we had the chance to sleep in until 8 didn't quite work out - construction, them boys start early next door. I will have to say that they are within inches of being completed with the project in front and I don't see this as being a future issue. We thought the the place was great for the six of us and the price. Some of the other concerns in prior reviews included stairs to the entry and spiral stairs to the bedrooms - And I say, "That was part of the ambiance, so you get a little work out draggin' your luggage upstairs, deal with it". The furniture isn't brand new show room floor quality - "I wouldn't want your wet bathing suit sitting on my new leather sofa". There is a huge house between the condo and the ocean - "The place is pretty cool and there is still plenty of breath taking views in spite of it". The TV's are old school, but a can't remember ever even turning them on. We opened up the giant sliding glass doors on all levels to give the place a very open feeling as the breeze came through. We played in the pool a couple of evenings and had fun fishing off the dock a few times. We enjoyed the roof top sun deck and the views. You will want to make friends with Jim, kind of the live on site maintenance guru. He has many great stories, and don't tell anyone but he might even have some fishing gear for you. I will agree that the web site needs a little updating, but Victor will send you additional pictures. Make sure you get good directions to the place and information on how to get in - Things you think of at the last minute that didn't get mentioned. Note to self - Bring a Volleyball for the beach next time, or better yet, Victor break down and throw a couple in the utility closet along with 50 bucks of cheap fishing gear... ;)
