Absolutely perfect!!!!!! Just a fantastic location with water views in a picturesque setting.

I should start by saying that I booked this property 15 months in advance because I was traveling with friends to celebrate BIG ZERO birthdays...a 40th and a 50th...and these were birthdays of our wives. I have not mentioned yet that this was a complete surprise to both as to where we would be staying. After a near perfect drive thru the keys we arrived at Key West Harbour Yacht club....still they had no idea where we would be staying. I told everyone that I wanted to see the yachts on the docks and go for a walk and the group begrudgingly followed along. Then as their patience was about to run out with me dragging them for a boondoggle, I announced "This is it!".....mouths open...speechless! Still incredulous, they came aboard but were curious to see the inside. I handed them the key and they walked inside......"WOW" was the overwhelming response. As we boarded the boat there is seating area with a grill that seats six and overlooks the mangroves with yachts on each side. Once inside, there is a fantastic wrap around couch which faces a big screen TV. This room is very large and has a spacious dining and kitchen area . Additionally, it has two bathrooms and three bedrooms which were all fantastic with wood interior and lots of windows. The real show stopper was the upper deck which has a seating area overlooking the ocean, a hot tub, chasse lounges and wraparound views of the marina filled with yachts. The boat is spotless inside and out and it is hard to come away without being completely impressed. This vessel enjoys million dollar views in a tranquil setting....ocean birds gliding,trees swaying in the wind, the sun dancing off the water and magnificent sunsets. At the end of the dock there is a giant tiki hut overlooking the entry to the marina and gateway to the ocean where everyone gathers for a morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail. It is just a short cab ride to Duval street and the night life of Key West or a day exploring the shops and galleries. Must sees for first timers are The Hogfish Grill,(aps/dinner/entertainment) Blue Heaven(fantastic breakfast) Southernmost Cafe(Breakfast on the beach), Sloppy Joe's(night life), Hog's Breath(nightlife), and of course the Mallory Dock sunset celebration.That list hardly scratches the surface of all that KW has to offer. Many Thanks to Lee and Sue for an EPIC vacation! We can't wait to come back to paradise!!

Owner's Response: Chris,
We are totally and awesomely overcome with what is undoubtedly the best review ever. We would like to let you know that you have moved us to another level. We are speechless as to how to respond. However,
You are to be commended first of all for keeping a secret for 15 months, and begrudgingly dragging your guest to the “Yacht Club” Handing them the key and saying “This is it”. Their response “WOW”, your words.
“A real show stopper”, (The upper deck with chasse lounges, a hot tub, wraparound view of the ocean & marina filled with yachts). We know “Your words” (perhaps a correspondent, journalist, novelist, in disguise. The boat is spotless. You can credit our Property manager Jeri for this.
“Million dollar view, in a tranquil setting”. (Please allow us to use this in our brochure). Ocean birds gliding, swaying trees, now we are embarrassed. You said an “Epic Vacation! We can’t wait to come back to Paradise”.
Do I have to do this Job; No I get to do this Job. Catching Reel Dreams is the name and goal for many Vacationers, Revelers, and Families. You sir have provided us with documentation that we have accomplished this Dream for many.
We have only one more thing to add. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, and Thank You.
With Best wishes for your return.
