About Irene or Ernest

The owners are big keys fans, into fishing and boating and of course....DOGS! They welcome all sizes and especially appreciate responsible owners who don't leave their furry children behind. Please be mindful and don't let your dogs onto our beds and / or use out bed linens to make doggie beds (we supply one or bring your own!)

Why Irene or Ernest chose Upper Florida Keys

It's a very affordable way to enjoy the treasures of the Florida Keys,,quick drive to beaches, jet ski spots, deep sea excursions, snorkeling -- all within mins. commute, even keep your boat on premise and not spend a whole lot. For much less than motel rates, you'll have the equivalent of a small house but with a yard for the pup and pkg. for your boat/trailer. There are outdoor live music venues and casual to fine dining choices all around the area. Or, catch your own and bring it home to prepare your way in this home away from home.

What makes this mobile home unique

All the benefits of a house without the cost! There is a side yard fenced in for your dog and a patio and grill area for you to enjoy outdoor life in the privacy of your own home away from home.

Horrible Experience! I would not recommend this property to anyone!

  • 1 of 5

I have never taken the time to write a review before, but this property warrants a true review to warn potential renters of what the property is like. I can write a million things wrong with this property but I will keep it short. When we arrived the property smelt like mold, urine and chemical odor eliminators. We aired it out for hours but one bedroom with a double bed would not smell any better, so forget about sleeping there. The furniture in the house is very outdated and looks like it came from a thrift shop and it is not 'nicely furnished' as described. There is no dish washer as listed in the ad, one air conditioning unit does not blow cold air, the dryer is all rusty, the lawn chairs are very visibly covered in mold. The neighbors have four very aggressive dogs who violently bark and try to jump over the small metal fence. The 'garden' is full of crushed stone. As you can see in the property description the renter talks about local amenities and hardly the property at all. Beaches are only found in state parks, the closest of which costs $500 for a family of four for 2 weeks and your dog is not allowed on the beach. The others cost less but are quite a ways away. I can't wrap my head around all these positive reviews, there is simply no way we are talking about the same place. I can go on and on about more things that are wrong but I covered the main points. Please steer clear of this place and do not fall for this falsely advertised property because you will be left disappointed. The property owner doesn't care about your satisfaction. The pictures look much better than reality! We feel like we've been scammed, and this ruined our vacation!

Owner's Response: Regrettably this traveler did not understand that mobile homes with xeryscape gardens are typical in the keys and sustainable gardens. The smell would have disappeared once the wall unit ran for 10 minutes. All other allegations are just untrue, and previous reviews are evidence of the care we take in maintaining our property. The fence dividing the yard next door with the dogs has lattice work, so no dogs can touch or ever meet and those dogs are not in the yard too often. I can assure all my guests that there are no crumbs, no soiled linens, no dust, no mold and floors are spotless. If anything breaks or goes missing, it is replaced before the next traveler arrives.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this place last minute for a quick dive trip with the family and dogs. Very please with this well maintained and clean home. Location was great we were able to get to to dive boats in both Key Largo and Islamorada with ease. Irene was very helpful and gracious accommodating this spare of the moment booking. The fenced yard was great and the dogs were very happy to be able to get out and stretch:) Will definitely be on the list of places to stay again.

Loved this house!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Right in the middle of islamorada and key largo! House was cute and perfect for us and our dog! Kitchen had everything we needed to cook with and bedrooms had plenty of extra linens and towels. Irene checked in to make sure everything was good after we got in. Would defiantly stay here again!

Key Largo

  • 2 of 5

Trailer was nice and clean inside as well as no bugs.. but the outside and yard needs a little work.. couldn't go outside too much due to over growth.. We were going to use the grill but the grate was full of holes so we couldn't.. but it was comfortable for short time we were there..

Owner's Response: We had a very rainy summer in 2015 and the bouganvillea grew huge. This has been cut back substantially. There are no holes in the gate nor fence so we are baffled about this comment. The grill was replaced 2 years ago and unfortunately, due to proximity to the ocean and exposure the controls weather faster than they should. A new grill has been purchased.

Car: recommended

Remodeled double-wide mobile home, in a residential community with deepwater across and end of the street. 3 bdrm, 1 bath home with large eat in kitchen, living and dining rooms, screened terrace, with a private fenced-in yard. Tavernier is a small community located between Key Largo and Islamorada, at mile marker #92.5. 3 mins. drive to Harry Harris Park for boat ramp access, private beach and recreation area including bbq and kids park - free for residents and renters. This community is very quiet and you can really feel the laid back pace of the Florida Keys. Unit is nearly 1,000 square feet with air conditioning and private parking in front, enough for 3 cars and a boat and trailer. Fisherman's paradise with daily fishing excursions leaving from Key Largo and Islamorada marina's. Fine dining, casual and elegant within 5 minutes, convenient to grocery store and large shopping area and just off of US#1, but tucked away in this bungalow like community, all roads end at water.

Other Activities: Founder's Park offers comm. pool (Olympic size), basketball, soccer, dog park

Golf: Key Largo's Ocean Reef Gold Resort is nearby and special privileges are needed, or member invitation, however, in Miami you have many world class golf courses such as the Doral Golf course with the Blue Monster, the Melreese, Biltmore golf and many others ranging from moderate priced to full service deluxe golfing services and fees.
