We, (Gordon & Ree) first bought our house here 23 years ago with our 8 month old daughter (Merritt, who is Property Manager) and started off by spending the winter enjoying the beautiful weather in Key Largo. Gordon would work 8 months in PA and then enjoy the winter months in his Keys home. This is our 3rd home in Key Largo and we couldn't imagine living any where else. Marie and her 2 duaghters live permentaly down here in the Keys while Gordon still comes down for the winter and visits every 3 weeks during the spring and summer. Marie and the girls love living down here enjoying the weather, water, wildlife, the friendly locals and how safe of a town it is.

Merritt Johnson purchased this estate in 2002

It had it all for our family. Four spacious bedrooms with their own bath. Plenty of space and privacy. The amazing views. Being able to walk right into the ocean. Prime location in Key Largo. The safe upscale neighborhood.

DREAM VACATION OF A LIFETIME!!

  • 5 of 5
We are so busy, we don't get to take many vacations as a family but we recently decided to go to the Florida Keys. After being frustrated looking at various hotels, we were looking for homes to stay at where we could be more comfortable. And OMG - we never imagined we'd end up at a place like this! This house is absolute paradise only feet away from the ocean with a beautiful pool!! The beds are so comfortable and the gated entry gave us security and privacy!! The moon over the water was something straight out of the movies. The house was impeccable and the owners/managers were so helpful and were there if we needed anything or even had questions about the area. There is so much we didn't see and we cannot wait until next Spring when we return and we will ONLY come back on a week that our new "home away from home" is available!!!

BEAUTIFUL HOME IN KEY LARGO, BUT THERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • 4 of 5
Our group, which ranged in age from 2 to 60, generally enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. However, upon checking in we were initially disappointed. We were surprised to see that the jacuzzi bathtub had a note indicating it was broken, but the owners later explained it wasn't broken and only caused problems if it overflowed. We also noticed the shower in the master bathroom was broken, there were no curtains on the windows in that bathroom (there were hurricane shutters on the outside), the 2nd floor ice maker was broken, and the ceiling fans on the decks did not work. Additionally, many light bulbs needed replaced and there were very limited washcloths and hand towels. Additionally, the 2nd floor kitchen was not equipped with with plates, pans, trashcan, etc. Much of the pots and pans were severely scratched, rusted, and/or warped. We contacted the owners about our concerns, and they promptly addressed many of the issues.

Upon booking this house we did not realize that swimming on this beach is not an option due to the large amount of debris/ sea grass, and we did not know to expect the stench that this seagrass emits as it decays. We later learned that this is a common complaint in Key Largo and, of course, we don't fault the owners for nature. It was just an unpleasant surprise. It should be noted that the stench waxed and waned, and we adjusted to it over time.

Our favorite aspects of this property were the pool (especially perfect for young children), outdoor space/ decks, and the beautiful open dining/ living area on the main floor. There are plenty of excellent dining options nearby and Anne's Beach (a relatively short drive away) is beautiful.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
We took our first week-long family vacation in 14 years and had a wonderful time! The house was the perfect size for our family, 6 adults and 2 children. We did not use the 5th bedroom downstairs. The views from the home are AMAZING. Turquoise blue water as far as you can see. Each morning after watching the sunrise, we would kayak to see the Dolphins at Island Dolphin Care. One morning we saw a manatee on our trip. After that we would spend our days lounging in the pool and relaxing by the ocean.

We ate at a different restaurant each night. Everywhere we went had great food, beautiful views and no wait! Some of the places we ate at were: Snappers, Snooks, Sharkeys (best fish tacos, EVER), Sundowners, Mrs. Mac's Kitchen (not on the water), and the Big Chill. The Pilot House, which is within walking distance to the house, was our favorite spot for a mid-afternoon cocktail. Pusser's Cat 5 Hurricane was the big winner here.

4 of us went on a 2-hour snorkel trip at John Pennekamp State Park. It was honestly the best reef I have ever snorkeled. That day we went to Grecian Rocks, but there are several different places they take you from Pennekamp.

The only negative of the trip was there was a ton of sea grass in the water directly in front of the house which made getting in and out of the ocean VERY difficult. Other than that, no complaints!

We had such a great trip, I look forward to going back to the Keys very soon!

SPRING BREAK 2014

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent Spring Break at the most comfortable and family friendly place on Key Largo! There were 6 of us (two children - ages 5 and 9, two grandmothers, and my husband and myself). There was more than enough room for us including everyone having their own bathroom which was a huge PLUS! The house is family friendly and has all of the toys you could possibly want in the Keys. The location is perfect and the bonus of having a pool and beach access was fantastic. There are plenty of things within walking distance from the house (CVS, Walgreens, a local fishery, and of course a Family Dollar Store in case you forgot any last minute items). The owners are warm, friendly, and extremely helpful. We never felt like we needed anything. When we mentioned that there was a broken coffee pot, they brought a new one right away!! We asked for restaurant recommendations and a place for boat rentals and they always answered quickly. There is so much to offer. We will definitely come back to Key Largo ... Especially to see our favorite pet bird who visited us each morning for his fishy meal! Thank you again!!
