About Valerie Ellen Fortson Eikenberg

I grew up in Michigan but moved to Florida right after college. I enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming. I still enjoy snow skiing and snowmobiling and go every winter at Boyne Mountain.

Valerie Ellen Fortson Eikenberg purchased this mobile home in 2006

Why Valerie Ellen Fortson Eikenberg chose Lower Florida Keys

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

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful place with us. We had a great time! We did not get a chance to rent a jet-ski-who know we would stay so busy the entire trip. Thanks again! Loretta & Scotty

Perfect Vacation with Family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a perfect week at this wonderful property. The location right on the canal is gorgeous and my kids loved jumping into the water. We loved watching the boats, the pelicans and the colors in the sky. We went on a fishing trip early in the week and had enough fish to feed us for a few days. We enjoyed morning walks to Morita's cafe to get some cuban coffee. They even prepared delicious sides for us to enjoy with our fish. The resort is wonderful and my kids enjoyed the freedom of being able to bike around. We also played tennis, but we only visited the pool once since we much preferred jumping off our own dock into the water. Having access to the kayaks and paddle board was also really fun. Terry was so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. I can't thank him enough for his hospitality and I hope that we have a chance to return one day. The neighbors were also so nice. They even helped my dad in his attempts to fish. We had never been to the Keys... thank goodness that we didn't stay in Key West. It was WAY too busy and although it was fun to visit, our rental in Cudjoe was much more our speed and a wonderful place to come home to in the afternoon. Don't think twice about it... this place is PERFECT!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

This a lovely place to stay, very safe, clean and peaceful. Our family of four plus our little dog were very comfortable. There are nice amenities in the resort and everybody is extremely friendly. Our kids played tennis and rode bikes. We swam in the ocean water, its separated and feels very safe. The cottage has all you need for a great vacation in the Keys. We rode kayaks, fished and relaxed on the water front porch. It's priced very affordable for the area and season.

Thank you Valerie and Terry!

  • 5 of 5

Terry and Valerie were great! Husband had a bike accident and Terry came to the rescue. The place is set up really nicely. Nothing like the keys! Snorkeling at Looe Key was fabulous. Really nice neighbors and the pelicans were very entertaining.

Right on the water - 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.
