Bring your boat - no charge for putting in at our Venture Out Marina. Our resort's marina has some of the lowest gas prices in the lower Keys for boaters. (Boat and trailer parking is a daily charge by the park.)This unit is not on the water, but you can put your boat in at our resort marina, and pull it out each day. Or when available we do have access to a boat Dock within our park. You would not have to pull your boat in and out each day. ( please ask about the availability of this extra dock when you call ) We also have another unit inside park right on the water. Your boat would be right at your back door .

And DANCE the night away at Hog's Breath or Sloppy Joe's. Visit the Southernmost House and all of its historical splendor. Or walk the trail of Hemingway - down famous Duval Street. So much to do - right down the road.

Marathon offers good seafood of our favorites is The Keys Fisheries. Casual dining over looking their marina. Seafood is always fresh there! Be sure to try their lobster bisque. Marathon also has 'The Turtle Hospital', a non-profit organization dedicated to helping sea turtles. It's an educational outing your kids will enjoy, plus your admission fee helps their mission. Visit the Aquarium Encounters in Marathon. It's new to the area and highly rated. The Dolphin Research Center is just a little North of Marathon but worth the drive. You can interact with Dolphins!

But do not think you HAVE to go anywhere - lay by the HUGE POOL right on the OPEN WATER and watch the elegant seagulls float overhead as the palms sway. Sun yourself and read a good book and simply relax! Plunge into the BIG JACUZZI and soak your troubles away. Or spend some time with someone you love - holding hands and watching the herons fishing along the waterside! And you do not even have to get in your car to do any of these! Our resort is a destination in it's self!

Within five minutes we have a great restaurant - The Square Grouper is our favorite. The Marina Store - walking distance right in our gated community - stocks necessities, such as soft drinks, and BEER and WINE, very convenient!

At the desk area, there is a bullentin board with grocery store and pharmacy loyality cards. We just added a 'Vacation Answer Book' to answer your questions about our vacation home and the surrounding area.

We take great pride in offering our home for your vacation. You will not find a cleaner rental in the area. We know you will have a marvelous time here in the gorgeous FLORIDA KEYS!


Driving Distance:3 Hours from Miami, and 31/2 Hours from FT.Lauderdale. 25 Minutes from Key West. The drive down US 1 is a journey that everyone should experience.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented in November 2016 and the unit was SUPER clean. Location was perfect. So glad we chose Lower Keys and close to Key West. Had a lot of fun in Key West and spent a couple of days going back and forth. Nice to be close. The unit is located in a very nice resort/park area. We had a day just using pool and walking around. Too windy to kayak but we thought about it. Kayaks were available. Tammy and hubby very responsive. Had one issue with the a/c not working when we arrived and Tammy's husband super responsive in getting a very simple fix--battery needed in controller! Thanks so much!! Would definitely rent again if we find ourselves in the Keys....

Wonderful Florida Keys Experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit in November 2016.The unit was very clean and well equipped. The owners Tammy and her husband are very helpful and accommodating as well. Everyone was very friendly. Felt safe the whole time there. Location is convenient to Key West (30 minutes away) and Marathon Key. Bahia Honda State Park was beautiful and Fort Zack was amazing. It is all that was promised.We will definitely be back. Thank you so much again :)

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here and absolutely loved it! Cudjoe Key is very low key for anyone who is interested in a quiet, relaxing vacation. The house was so nice and affordable! If you want a good time, Key West is just down the road. It was very nice to be able to buy food and cook in the kitchen rather than eating at restaurants for every meal. The owners are so nice and easy to work with. The community is gated and there is always a security guard at the gate. The free pass to Bahia Honda was great! The beach there was beautiful! My husband enjoyed great fishing also! Our only problem was that we didn't want to go back home once our vacation had ended! We will definitely be back!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If you like the water, you'll love this place. We kept our boat in the canal just a few steps away from the back door. Played on Looe key reef every day. Lobster in the gulf, and did very well. Rental was clean and cozy. Our family had a great time. Tammy was really easy to work with.

More than just LODGING....

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year at Venture Out but first time at this 'home'. First of all, Tammy's communication was spot on before, during and after our stay. We booked 7 days for my husband and I and two kids (11 & 16 yo). Many reasons I picked this one over the others at Venture Out: very nicely decorated and stocked for the value, many wonderful reviews (very important for me) I do like dealing directly with the owner and not having to pay extra to go with the added protection VRBO has added (not for everyone I understand), cleaning fee was reasonable and owner did not require additional fees that some others do, state park pass was a plus (though we already have one I thought it was a special touch and icing on the top). If I had any complaints it would not be with the property but one guard at Venture Out (just one, not all) that was very quick to point out you can't play tennis in flip flops or toss a ball in the pool (this was on the rules displayed in the pool area but I didn't see it so technically my fault). Venture Out is a nice community with many amenities and a great location - close enough to Key West to go and play for a few hours and then come back for snorkeling, jet skiing, park visiting just up the road. Great restaurants close by and a full kitchen if you decide to cook in. We plan on coming to the Keys once a year and we really enjoy this area. I will definitely contact Tammy for future bookings!

PERFECT Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Our first time visiting the Keys, my family (hub, wife, 3 young kids) found the central location that allowed us to explore various beaches/locations around the lower/middle Keys. This was the perfect housing in the perfect location. The rental was spotless upon our arrival. Had all the amenities we could want, and more. We cooked multiple meals and found all utensils we could need. The State Park Pass was great. We used the community pool as our night cap every day. This spot is within 30min drives from Key West, the best beaches (Bahia Honda, Sombrero, etc) and various other, sea turtle hospital, Aquarium Encounters. Around the corner from Square Grouper, at top restaurant in all of the Keys. Also around the corner from a local fresh seafood market if you want to cook your own. We were able to visit great locations without wasting vacation time behind the wheel. Would highly recommend this location.
