Our group consisted of 8 people, 4 adults and 4 children, and the place accommodated perfectly. The house is very well described in that it is very lush and tropical, also including great wildlife (all the kids got to pet a manatee from the dock). Being centrally located was a plus for any north/south excursions. The owner was very responsive with any requests. We all had a genuinely great time and would use again as well as recommend to others.
My husband and I rented this home with another family (2 adults, 2 kids). The house accommodated the six of us more than comfortably and was even more charming than we expected. The kitchen was stocked with anything we could've needed for cooking (pots, pans, plates, glasses, silverware) - many rental homes I've stayed in typically provide the bare minimum; and the dishwasher was a great bonus for our week stay (who wants to do dishes on vacation?!). We also enjoyed having the washer and dryer, and the downstairs suite was perfect for storing our boating gear overnight. Given the time of our stay (mid-August), I expected the pool to be warm - however, because of the tropical landscaping, the pool stays shaded which made the pool temperature so refreshing - more so than the bay/ocean even (and I don't mean it was cold - it was perfect for an afternoon swim)! We saw the pool company twice during our stay - it was well maintained and kept very clean.
As both of our families brought boats (each 23' in length), the driveway easily accommodated both trailers and vehicles. While the dock could only fit one boat length-wise, the canal is more than wide enough - with VERY little traffic - that it was no problem tying one boat off the other. The dock had fresh water rinse down and a filet table (very important to boaters).
The property was very private - large lot for a home in this area! In addition, there is nothing developed across the canal from the home - it was peaceful and quiet. We liked that this home is a little south of all the hotels (and tourists), but close enough that you can be at any delicious restaurant with a short drive.
Overall, we were thrilled with the home - it honestly exceeded our expectations, and a week just wasn't enough! Even better than the home, was that the owner was wonderful to work with - Jan is very pleasant, answered my questions, and made herself available to us via mobile, if needed, during our stay. We look forward to renting this home again in the future.
Located nearby is Theater of the Sea and Islamorada Tennis Club with weekly memberships available, and a local bike path. The house is located on Lower Matecumbe Key which is a predominately residential island. The street that the house is located on is considered one of the area's most prestigious addresses according to 'The Insiders Guide to the Florida Keys and Key West' by Shearer, Toppino and Ware.
