Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things to say about this property. The cottage was clean and well decorated. It had all the amenities needed for our weeklong stay. Bonnie and Bill were terrific. They pointed us in all the right directions. My husband and daughters had a great time kayaking and snorkeling right in the backyard. The water is clean and clear, and they saw as many fish as they did on a snorkeling tour and at a state park beach. Great central location with lots to do nearby. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Keys Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

5 Star Rental! Cottage was adorable, super clean and private. The description and photographs of the property were exactly as described, absolutely no surprises. Kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes, utensils etc. Grounds are beautiful! Nice layout with area’s for sunning and shade and use of their kayaks! Most importantly, don’t forget to find out when the sun is suppose to set as you will want to go out to their private beach and docks and enjoy this amazing sight! Bonnie and Bill were wonderful hosts, down to earth, very accommodating and just plain nice decent people. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to vacation don’t hesitate to book. This rental would be great for couples or families with young children, plenty of space for kids to play, lots of local wildlife on land and in the sea, fishing from the dock, snorkeling from the beach and a washer and dryer so you don’t have to pack much. Definitely a place I would recommend to my friends and family, I almost hate leaving this 5 star review…I’m afraid that it will be booked the next time we travel to the Keys but Bonnie and Bill are so deserving for sharing their piece of paradise with us.

Couldn't ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

From the time I talked to Bonnie on the phone to the day we left it was everything we wanted, Bonnie was so pleasant answering all my many questions. The cottage was adorable plenty of room and privacy for 4,extremely clean , full kitchen , laundry facilities, the detail in the grounds was amazing. My husband fished everyday I got to snorkel morning and night it felt like our own . Being able to grill and having a kitchen to make meals was a big plus for us saving a ton of money while still being close to some great restaurants. Did I mention the sunsets!!. WOW It was our second time there and can't wait until we can go back!!

Florida Keys the way you would expect!!

  • 5 of 5

I used to live in the Keys and go down every year. This was my first time staying at Bonnie and Bills place. We are a family of 4 and the house was perfect size for us.The place was super clean and smelled great when we walked through the door. We had rented a boat and the dock worked very well for our needs. They have a fish cleaning table with fresh water and Bill offers you plenty of advice and any tool you needed at your request. He also gives you good fishing and lobster advice. The owners live on the property but the property is so large you never bump into one another. Tons of palm trees and your own beach which is rear in the Florida Keys.All of the furniture was updated and the art in the house was a pleasure to look at. We would come back to this place again. 5 stars all day long. Professional business that deserves respect!

Perfect for our Needs.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (both over 62) and my mother (85) are serious birders and were looking for a base in the keys to spend time hunting down the "Florida Specialties' We found it at "Island Breeze".

Location: Well situated for both touring the Keys, the Everglades, & the Miami area.

Hosts: Super couple, Bill & Bonnie made sure everything was just right. They set up the kayak so that we could use and enjoy and provided for every need.

Cottage: Very quiet and clean. Perfect for older people, only 3 well spaced steps,& elderly friendly layout. Flat path to the beach, shaded sitting space at the cottage and at the beach. Privacy was paramount.

Landscaping: The property is so well laid out and landscaped with native plants that we felt that we we totally alone in a tropical paradise even though we were actually between other commercial properties. Bonnie and Bill obviously spent a tremendous amount of time trying to provide the feel of being in an isolated spot in an area that is teeming with homes.

Notebook: Bonnie provides a notebook with a description and directions to all local attractions and restaurants.

Would recommend for anyone wanting a centrally located, quiet relaxing place to spend some time in South Florida and the Keys..

Thank you Bonnie & Bill!

Great Escape!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic for a quite New Years Eve week. Bonnie and family made sure we had all the comforts home and the property is beautiful. Lots of privacy. I would recommend this to my single or married friends. Bonnie even provides a notebooks with all the local restaurants and local activities. You are 15 minutes from Pennekamp Park and 90 or so miles from Key West
