About Gustavo Alvarez

Hi,

My wife and I are professional Martial Artist for 35 year. Our business is in Weston (Fort Lauderdale),Florida. We enjoy kicking around and everything that has to do with the ocean.

Gustavo Alvarez purchased this house in 1987

Why Gustavo Alvarez chose Blue Waters

Hi There,

Thank you for visiting my listing and I wish you a great vacation. I have been visiting the Florida key’s since 1965 and I still count the days looking forward to the weekends and holidays to relax and enjoy the magic of our home in the keys. If you allow me to host your next vacation stay. you’ll quickly see why I chose to buy my home in the subdivision of Blue Waters in Tavernier. My wife and I enjoy the convenience of the best stores, shops and , restaurants. But best of all we feel the waters in this area are superior. First if you like deep sea fishing the gulf stream tends to flow in closer to land in our area. There are many benefits to this. Also the Diving and snorkeling is unmatched with John penny camp national preserve , and our life filled reefs. Now, here is the something even more unique , Tavernier key is about 200 yards from shoreline that offers shallow sandy bottom for swimming and beach area. The islands is often the a final destination after a day fishing to anchor, barbeque, sip a refreshment, swim, kick back and love life. This island also protects the shore and offer calmer waters for skiing , tubing, jet skiing, flat fishing, bait catching. These are just some of the many highlight you will definitely enjoy. I guarantee you will have made the perfect choice allowing me to be your host.

Guestbook comments from the owner

we rented gus and carmen's home in tavernier for the month of february and had a great stay. we can't say enough about the house as well as the professionalism and care on the part of it's owners. the house is exactly as portrayed, neat and well maintained. we have rented before, and this home exceeded our expectations. we love the area with the ocean canal as our backyard. it is close to harry harris state park which is a lovely spot for fishing, swimming and just catching a breeze while reading. we took advantage of that as well as founders park, only a ten minute ride away. the pool there is amazing as well as the beach and playground. our 2 young grandsons and their parents joined us for 10 days and they loved the playgrounds at both locations. we saw many fish in the canal including a large beautifully colored angel fish, and the resident iguana added to the tropical setting. all in all it was the nicest home we've found to enjoy our time in the keys. thanks so much gus and carmen for sharing your home with us.

Perfect for boat access, fishing, and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the house. The location is perfect for boating, and the fish cleaning station and freezer at the dock are delightful to have. We really enjoyed the wrap-around porch and spacious living room sofa. The owner was responsive, friendly, and easy to communicate with. We would definitely recommend the house, especially for easy boat access to the Atlantic, back country, and Gulf.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the bathrooms could use an update, though they are certainly adequate. And while we enjoyed the wrap-around porch, it would have been nice if it were screened in to reduce insect bites. It wasn’t totally clear from the pictures that it’s a modular home, which is a common style in the area (not an issue, just a bit of a surprise).

Again, we had a great time and would absolutely recommend the house for people looking for a fun waterfront getaway in Tavernier.

EXCELLENT PLACE ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO WANT QUICK OCEAN ACCESS WITH THERE BOAT. THE DOCKAGE AT THE CANAL IS NICE AND CANAL IS WIDE ENOUGH FOR BOAT TO MANEUVER THROUGH. SET UP WELL FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO FISH AND DIVE. HEAD STRAIGHT OUT OR SLIGHTLY SOUTH OR NORTH TO BE ON GREAT REEFS. HAS EASY ACCESS TO BOTH KEY LARGO AND TAVERNIER. PLACE HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND SERVES ITS PURPOSE. BEDS SLEEP WELL, AIR WORKS GREAT AND WAS QUIET INSIDE THE HOUSE. NOT A FANCY PLACE BUT I REALLY ENJOYED IT!!

My sisters and I shared the home in March and April 2015 - was a great home with excellent location and great amenities; it was clean and well equipped. Dock was well kept and the fishing was very good. Canal was clean and full of juvenile tarpon. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found Gus easy to deal with.

A Relaxing and Inviting Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and my sister and a friend, stayed here for the month of January. We enjoyed it very much. The kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed to cook. The new couch in the living room was wonderful and comfortably seated all of us. The ability to use Netflix for movies and the great WIFI access was an added bonus. The location was great; between Key Largo and Islamorada, and a short walk to a small park that has a protected beach. There was a Winn Dixie less than 2 miles away. The house was easy to get around for my husband who uses a cane and my sister who was recovering from a broken foot. Gus was great to deal with.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This truly feels like home only better cause it's in the Keys! Everything you need is provided & the location is great. Gus & Carmen have been updating/upgrading the entire property over the past several years, making everything quite comfortable & relaxing, and the property is very clean....no bugs! You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here; we'll be back again next year.

On the Water, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in mid-November and had a great time. The property is right on a canal, which made for great swimming. We were a 7 minute car ride from the dive shop we were diving with and never drove more than 15 minutes to get to dinner (Num Thai was our favorite). Most nights we stayed in and grilled, though because enjoyed the house so much. There is an excellent sound system which plays music indoors or out and the house has an patio overlooking the canal which is perfect for hanging out and relaxing. Definitely made use of the smart TV to watch some Netflix a couple nights. Thanks for a great trip!!
