About Valerie Fortson. Eikenberg

I grew up and still live in Michigan. I enjoy boating and fishing in the summer with my family. In the winter we snow ski, snowboard and ride snowmobiles. Boyne Mountain is our favorite haunt.

Valerie Fortson. Eikenberg purchased this mobile home in 2006

Why Valerie Fortson. Eikenberg chose Cudjoe Key

It's great for snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, jet skiing, boating, paddleboarding and kayaking. On the rare rainy day - we head to Key West to do some shopping and bar hopping.

What makes this mobile home unique

It's located on a deep water canal(about 8 feet deep), only a stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean(about 150 feet from open water) and the back country of the Gulf of Mexico. Now that's what I call GREAT boating access! Beautiful sparkling blue water at Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, just a short boatride away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I came down for some fishing and boating with my brothers and the rest of my family. The place was comfortable, clean and well stocked. The weather was perfect and we went out fishing everyday. Caught a lot of yellowtail, lane snapper and speared some hog fish. There's nothing like eating fresh fish that you just caught, it doesn't get any better than that. We really had a blast, can't wait to come back again.

Living the dream

  • 5 of 5

Valerie's property was everything we had hoped for. Two buddies and I spent a week fishing, snorkeling and boating. The accommodations were as described. The pullout sofa in the living area was very comfortable...I know, I gave the two bedrooms to my buds. All imaginable activities are nearby: Atlantic side (Hawk Channel and the reef); Gulf side (all the backcountry) via Kemp Channel, as well as the wonders (or craziness) of Key West. The community pool and hot tub were great. Kayaks, bikes, seawall dockage, and views of Kemp Channel over to Summerland Key were great. Valerie is a gracious and attentive host. My buds were thrilled You won't be disappointed!

Exceeded expectations!

Very happy with our stay. Great views, clean and comfortable accommodations. We liked the location as we planned to spend time at both Bahia Honda and Key West. Rented boat at Cudjoe Boat Rentals - highly recommend! And Valerie helped make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely like to return.

The bees knees! Perfect May getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We came for beauty, weather, boating, snorkeling, fishing, and fun and had a GREAT time. Valerie was a terrific host and made sure we had everything we needed. She was just a quick text or call away and made us feel very welcome. The unit was light and cheery with that island ambience we were looking for. The kitchen, bedrooms,and bathrooms were clean and well supplied. Great sunrise view and perfect docking for our boat. In our trips offshore we saw amazing marine life including dolphins, a sea turtle, and even a swordfish! Short drive to Key West allowed us to experience the nightlife of Mallory Square and a beautiful sunset. The resort is a quiet, older mobile home resort which is well-maintained and has some great features including excellent boat ramp, swim lagoon, large pool, and well-stocked mini-mart with ethanol-free gas for the boat. Thanks Valerie!

We had a great time in the Keys- really enjoyed the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square in Key West and had a great meal at the Conch Republic Seafood Company. Had dinner with Valerie at Mangrove Mammas - Valerie brought the lobsters and the chef broiled them up for us- delicious! We cant wait to come back in October!

Have fun in the Florida sun in the fabulous laid-back Keys. This two bedroom two bathroom(sleeps up to six people) vacation accommodation is located only twenty minutes from Key West. Three free ocean kayaks(one two-person kayak and two single person), one paddleboard and four adult size bicycles are yours exclusively to use during your stay. Life jackets and of course paddles are also provided. A seawall ladder allows easy access into the kayaks. The Ernest Hemingway House in Key West is a must for cat lovers. The Turtle Hospital in Marathon has daily tours of their facility and has an awesome gift shop with really nice turtle t-shirts in great colors. The Dolphin Research Center is in Marathon and offers daily tours, painting with a dolphin and other dolphin encounters. Theater of the Sea in Islamorada also offers swim with a dolphin encounter, trainer for a day, and great daily shows. Many local dive shops offer daily snorkel and dive trips to world famous dive and snorkel Looe Key Marine Sanctuary and the wreck the Adolphus Busch. The wreck of the Vandenberg in Key West is awesome for more advanced divers !!! For boat rentals - I highly recommend Living the Dream Boat Rentals on Summerland Key. Rent jet skis in Key West and go on a tour of Key West by water. If you have time, take a day trip to the Dry Tortugas and Fort Jefferson(this is a once-in-a lifetime adventure although a little pricey). The Eco-Discover Center in Key West is free and has free parking. Right next door is the US Coast Guard Cutter the Ingham which has self guided tours. If you need any information on local restaurants, boat rentals, dive operators or anything else - please inquire. Two boogie boards are also provided.
