Amazing, Quite Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This stay was more amazing than we could have hoped!!! The owners really have a piece of paradise. Definitely some place to be away from the hectic world, with Key West only 2 hours away. The room was just the right size for two, and kept very clean and comfortable. It is a studio room connected to the main house, but you never felt like you would be intruded upon, or vice versa. Everything we could have possibly needed (apart from main meals) was already there, making our stay even more enjoyable. The private boat charter was well worth it, taking us to their own special fishing and snorkeling spot. The owners were the best teachers anyone could have asked for, especially for us newbies. We were able to cast off like a "pro" within a couple of minutes! And the snorkeling was truly unique, with clear, shallow water and beautiful reefs, something you can't find on a public excursion. Best of all, the owners were truly amazing hosts and made us feel like a we had a home away from home (cheesy yes, but very true). Even though we brought our own equipment, they were more than willing to supply us with anything that we needed. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation. I know we will definitely try to be there again.

Great place to just kick back with a glass of wine

  • 5 of 5
Had a very relaxed we here with my partner just chilling out and doing very little except lying on the hammock watching the parrot fish swim by.

The hosts are great friendly and very low key. The room is cosy and well equipped although a fridge for beer, some wine glasses and a great gas grill outside was all we needed. The layout means it is very private and it feels like its your own place

Would we go back - yes!

Perfect relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
This place has it all. We loved using the kayaks, fishing and snorkeling gear, all included. Some great places to see wildlife around here within a short kayak ride. Use the maps they provide for the beaches and snorkeling areas, it is worth it! The tiki hut was perfect to escape the sun while sipping a cold beverage in one of the 2 hammocks. We caught several different species of fish right off the dock including sharks! Great location in the middle keys, not too far from key largo or key west as we had day trips to both. The bed is comfortable, the shower has good pressure and plenty of room. Air conditioner worked well, no hot nights with great sleeping conditions. We cannot wait to return here next year.

Perfect, secluded getaway with nice accommodations and for the boater a convenient dock on a private canal, and parking for the trailer. Owners are very nice and helpful but allow you all the privacy you need. Easy access to gulf or ocean side by boat or kayak. Lots of palms complete the feeling of seclusion. We tried it on a friends recommendation and very glad we did. We plan to return and enjoy this very nice property.

A Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
The rental property was even better than was shown in the photos. It is a fantastic place to relax and, in our case, contemplate trying the many water sports available, but usually deciding to laze in the Tiki hut instead, either in the hammocks or fishing from the dock. We ate most evenings in the Tiki hut - not a mosquito in sight! The property had all the facilities you could need and was beautifully arranged.
The highlight of our week was the fishing trip with Ewa and Peter, they were great hosts and the fishing was very successful, despite our obvious incompetence. We would highly recommend this property as we have stayed in the keys many times - this property is undoubtedly our favourite. Thanks Ewa and Peter for a great time!

Paradise is the only word to describe it.

  • 5 of 5
The keys are wonderful, and this property is a jewel among the beauty. The ultimate in relaxation, natural beauty and wildlife. My wife and I visited for our 15th anniversary and couldn't wish for anything better. A great place to relax and watch the world go by. We spent most of our time in the tiki hut, watching beautiful parrot fish, iguanas, manatees and all manner of wildlife - although it was hard to leave the luxurious bed at times. We actually opted to stay on the property in lieu of adventuring out in the keys as it was a much more enjoyable option.

The hosts, Ewa and Peter, have thought of EVERYTHING to make their guests comfortable. I think you could get by with packing a couple of bathing suits, t-shirts and flip-flops and nothing else. They respect your privacy, but are available for friendly chat, assistance, anything you need.

I recommend this property for anyone who wants a true getaway from the world and wish for a romantic, gorgeous natural setting.

While the property is quiet, you are plenty close to great restaurants, water sports and all the keys have to offer.
