We have been renting vacation properties on the water for the past seven years and the views from this home were by far our favorite! In some areas of the Keys when looking out on the water you see power lines or bridges, but here there is nothing but an unobstructed gorgeous view of the water and mangrove islands. The property description and pictures are very accurate. If anything, the yard and home are even more charming in real life when you see how the different areas flow into one another.
If you bring a boat, another plus is the ramp at Old Wooden Bridge is only a 5 minute boat ride to the home's dock. The channel is also well marked and easily navigable. Boating in the area is wonderful, but even right on the dock we enjoyed the barracuda, nurse shark, snapper, etc that hung around daily. (And on land, the Key Deer, resident heron, and iguanas are fun to see.) Our teens also really enjoyed the pool, particularly as you can be in the shade or sun.
The property managers Lynn and Captain Ron could not be any nicer to deal with. They promptly answered our pre-booking questions and even supplied pictures of the dock from the water so we would know the layout in advance. The home was spotless upon arrival and is located in a very quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed using the pass to Bahia Honda's beaches and took a Strike Zone Charter Boat out to snorkel Loee Key (both are only 5-10 minutes away). Lynn suggested Blue Heaven Restaurant for a dinner out in Key West which was excellent. Our security deposit was refunded within two weeks of departure. All in all, we had an amazing vacation boating, enjoying the views, relaxing by the pool, and soaking up the Florida Keys sunshine!
