About Valerie Ellen Fortson

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

Valerie Ellen Fortson purchased this mobile home in 2006

Why Valerie Ellen Fortson chose Cudjoe Key

It's right on the water, has great boating access, 35 foot of dockspace right outside the living room window, and I launch my kayak(with my scuba tank on the back and scuba gear in the front), right from the seawall and off I go. 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

A wonderful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect get-away! The house is perfect for four adults. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed a day at the pool while we took a snorkeling trip at Bahia Honda State Beach. And the location couldn't be better. Close enough to Key West for an easy drive, but away form the hustle and bustle. Valerie was the perfect host. Made sure we knew she was available if we had any questions or needed anything at all.

Perfect location to enjoy the water

  • 5 of 5

This calm and scenic location is the perfect location from which to enjoy the keys. The accommodation is furnished and decorated to a very high standard. It is in a resort but that does not detract from the charm.

Car: recommended

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 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 Looe Key Marine Sanctuary and the wreck of the Adolphus Busch. The wreck of the Vandenberg(affectionately

called the Vandy) in Key West is awesome for more advanced divers !!! For an awesome day of fishing I highly recommend Captain Conrad-he catches fish like no one else I know. 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 fishing poles are also provided.
