Anniversary week

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little spot. Quite nice views and clean. Bill and Kathy are great and check in on us when we arrived to make sure we had everything. Our black lab Stella enjoyed her days too. She could see out from the screen porch without being in the sun while we sat on the deck. We needed nothing as the store is close by as well as shops and really good restaurants. You must try the conch at The Lazy Lobster it is a must. Thank you for the great vacation stay for our anniversary week.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed our property for your anniversary! The screen room is the greatest to sit next to the water and relax.The view is the greatest! The Fl. Keys & Key Largo are famous for fishing & diving but also the numerous great places to eat! Happy Anniversary & we hope to see you again!

Perfect piece of paradise in Key Largo!

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed staying here for Feb/Mar for the last 3 years. The view is nothing short of outstanding. We have throughly enjoyed the porch each and every day while there, even if it happened to rain. As Bill stated in a response to another review, this is a 'vacation' home, not as your home would be, but easy to adapt to, obviously it was for us because we have enjoyed being there for 3 years.

A positive is having Bill close by, if you need anything, he is just a call away. Special guy!

We also would recommend Sand Dollar to rent a boat which we did many times, they are great to work with.

Key Largo has bike trails that go from MM 106 to Tavernier, which was great for us as we bring our bikes from Iowa.

My fondest memory will always be having our fire at night and a cold one! Cheers!

Great Place, Good Price, 2 Caveats

  • 4 of 5

Overall our experience was great. The house was comfortable and had just about everything we could need. Bill was even awesome enough to give us a bit of sugar for morning coffee before we got to the store. The kitchen was well stocked and even had a blender, which we took used to make fabulous margaritas. We loved having our morning coffee on the patio overlooking the canal. At about 8 o'clock each morning we were joined by a small pod of manatees which REALLY made for a great experience.

There are a couple of things I want to mention simply because they could be deal breakers for some people and I would have liked to have known them going in. I want to be clear that even with these issues, this was still a great house and a good value FOR US but they are important enough to mention.

First, this is listed as a two bedroom house but it really is not. There is one regular bedroom and one alcove with a double bed in it that is separated from the rest of the house with curtains. The alcove area is barely big enough for the bed so there is no window, dresser or closet. You cannot even store a suitcase in the second "room". It is literally just a bed with a curtain separator. We ended up choosing this property over another that was $75 less per night because we have a 12 year old daughter and privacy has become really important to her lately. This did not solve that issue for us so had we known that this wasn't truly 2 bedrooms, we would have stayed at the less expensive house.

Secondly, the bed in the master bedroom is seriously uncomfortable. I mean, it borders on torturous. My husband and I both woke up with such bad back pain from the springs that we actually gave the master bedroom to the kids and stayed in the above mentioned alcove ourselves for the next four days. It solved the privacy issue for our daughter and she is young enough that the ancient bed didn't seem to bother her but it was definitely not ideal and we were disappointed in those two aspects.

If I were the owner I would get rid of the master bed, replace it with the bed in the alcove, and put a set of bunk beds in the alcove. Then there would be room for a dresser in there. Add a set of accordion doors and, Poof! You have an actual 2 bedroom house and none of the beds are torture devices.

Again, the location was great, the owners super accommodating, and the price wasn't too bad. Just be aware of the bed/bedroom issues.

Owner's Response: First of all, we are thankful for the first part of the review. As all people feel that way, and we have had a lot of return visit! This was our home for many years! The "caveats" part of the review is that we ask for people to respect our property and not leave with the windows open as there are rain storms that sometimes come through without a notice, as did happen. We had to go over and shut windows while they were gone. We also ask for guest to clean their dirty dishes during their stay and not leave in the sink with caked on food and grease. Common sense! The bed in the Master, is of high end quality, and we have never had any complaint! There is an antique bed in the second bedroom that is also the same quality. The second bedroom was made smaller to make a larger bathroom, with extra storage for all bedrooms and the pull out in the living room. Most couples do not like bunk beds. There is also extra storage in the utility room for suit cases. This is a beautiful place in paradise for a VACTION not your forever home.
