Guestbook comments from the manager

First I would like to start off saying that this house is amazing ! I got to feel like a Millionaire for a week ! This house will always have a special place in my heart becuase my boyfriend proposed to me while we were staying here ! While we were lobstering he pooed the question. It was the best proposal ever ! We later came back to this house and celebrated ! Thank you for the best vacation ever

Fabulous vacation home in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed this beautiful, clean home, located right on the bay on Sugraloaf Key. Ideal for swimmers, kayakers, canoers, snorkelers and sightseers. Close to Key West and all the amenities.

The house is beautifully maintained, very private and well appointed with dishes,linens, beach towels, a full barbecue, all the appliances, a heated pool, patio furniture, a boat launch: in other words, everything you need for a great family vacation.

I would strongly recommend this house!

Third Time is A Charm

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit, before leaving the property we reserved our dates for 2017. The location is so private and quite and close enough to Key West, yet far enough away. Fully stocked kitchen for your cooking needs. The house is very well maintained and the sunsets never disappoint. If you are looking for a great get away, this is the place for you.

Beautiful home!

  • 2 of 5

This was a beautiful home! Quiet neighborhood. Great access to either the Gulf or the Atlantic. However, the owners are quite particular. We left an item at the house and had to go back for it. They deducted $50 from our deposit which we were not informed would happen. Also, since they were 3 couples, the room with 2 twins, the beds were pushed together. We forgot to push the beds back together upon departure and therefore they deducted another $100 from our deposit. There isn't a hammock as shown in the photos. The pool is extremely warm (you are forbidden from adjusting the temp or you'll have more money deducted from your deposit). We left this home in a cleaner state than which we found it and still money was deducted from our deposit. We've been renting homes in The Keys for over 15 years and never had issues as such.

Also, approximately 45 days prior to your arrival you'll receive a letter from the owners, not the property management, stating what they expect from you during your stay and what they expect from you upon departure. It's about 4 pages long. They do give you the option to back out of your rental agreement. However, with such a short time given you won't be able to find another rental in the time given. Renters beware. This should've been included in the original rental agreement.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed our home and we keep it in pristine condition. In the contract it plainly states for the furniture placement to be left as you found it. You rearranged the entire room and damage was done to the walls. The leg on the bed was also bent. That is why $100 was deducted. You also left an item which was a handgun, Because of the safety issue, we had to pay our housekeeper to return to the property and do a security check , The hammock has been replaced with a large dining table with 6 club chairs. This provides a beautiful setting for dinner or cocktails and enjoy the sunset instead of only one person in the hammock. We have a professional pool company maintain the pool. It is his desire that people leave the settings as he left them. We are proud of our home and strive to keep it very nice.

Summertime Fun

  • 5 of 5

We've returned from vacation three weeks ago and are still dreaming of the beautiful sunset views of this property. We traveled with our teenage boys for a week of fishing, snorkeling, and fun in the sun. This location did not disappoint!!

The house was incredible! Master bedroom views were amazing. The kitchen was well appointed for preparing the fish that we caught and you can choose to eat inside or outside on the covered deck. Plenty of room for a large family including a spacious family room as well as an air conditioned lanai. Large flat screen in the family room was great for watching the US men's soccer games!

The boat lift worked great for our rented fishing boat and the neighborhood offered a unique and adventurous access to the ocean via a mangrove cruise. Don't miss this, it's beautiful.

The pool was a welcome relief after fishing and the gas grill was great for outdoor cooking. Oh yes,forgot to mention the curious local Iguanas which were very photogenic !

We had a great family vacation on this beautiful property!

Hope to return soon!

Private with beautiful sunsets.

  • 4 of 5

Two couples enjoyed our stay for the week. Open water views and beautiful sunsets. Far enough from Key West in a community of lovely homes, but only fifteen minute drive to town for sightseeing. The home has everything you need for a very enjoyable stay. The negatives were a pool that leaked but was to be repaired after we left and the master bedroom was very hot during the daytime hours, and this was with the blinds closed and extra fans that were provided. Even with these negatives it's still a very nice place to stay and we would recommend staying there, we would return if in the area.

Car: recommended

You'll be just 15 miles from Key West where you can enjoy the nightlife, great restaurants, boating events, art & culture. Sailing and fishing excursions are just moments away. Take the catamaran trip to the Dry Tortugas, see a show at the Waterfront Playhouse, ride the Conch Train and learn about Key West history, take a walking tour of local gallaries - whatever your pleasure, it's available nearby. After spending the day shopping, dining and taking in all the sights and sounds of Key West, then come home and relax in your own private oasis.

Other Activities: Snorkeling & Swimming off your Own Dock
