Great getaway in the Keys

This bay front home definitely did not disappoint. It was well appointed and had beautiful updates in the private suite downstairs and the bathrooms. The screened in porch was a wonderful touch as it can get a buggy in the Keys. The private dock is a great feature. There are numerous rock lobsters right next to the dock and if you have water shoes (with hard soles) you could definitely catch dinner without having to venture far. The location of this home is great as it is tucked away from main highway and in a mainly residential neighborhood that is not touristy. There are several restaurants nearby that are convenient to the house. Also nearby is a lot of water based activities. Snorkeling, boating, water sports, etc.; are all within a few miles from the house. The best part was that we were there during Spring Break week and we didn't see one drunken college student anywhere near the house. That is an absolute positive! If I wanted typical spring break, I would have gone to Key West (which was about an hour and a half away with the current construction on the highway).
I wouldn't detract anything from this property, but there are some things you may need to get used to if renting here. The downstairs suite is not connected to the main living area upstairs. You have to go outside to enter the suite. Also, the main bathroom has a large plate glass window looking into it from the outside. A little disconcerting until we realized we could engage the storm shutters and fix the potential voyeur problem and make the bathroom private. As I said, I would not call these detractors, just quirks. All houses have them, and it is what makes them memorable!
I would recommend anyone looking to have a nice, quiet getaway to the warm confines of the Florida Keys to rent this property.
