Escaping the cold of winter, we spent two months at this unit and could not have been happier. Appearing to have been rather recently remodeled, it lives up to its billing in every sense. There does not seem to be any amenity the unit lacks and there are more than adequate supplies of basic items. The location off the busy Overseas Highway is a plus with minimal traffic for walking, jogging, or bicycling, and the location across from the county park allows for a pleasant view and interesting (and amusing) activities at the boat launch. We particularly enjoyed the outside grounds with the tiki hut, spa, and barbecue and enjoying al fresco dining on the capacious front porch. The owners are very accommodating and were quick to respond to the one problem we had with the water heater which was fixed the same day it was reported (not necessarily an easy feat in the Keys!). Having stayed at many similar properties, we feel this may be the best, if you do stay here, enjoy those spectacular Atlantic sunrises!
This home has everything you need and more, so comfortable, details were so nice. Clean and very spacious. Close to everything you need. Owners are amazing. Great for a family. Great for everything actually. Loved it here.
This property was the lynchpin in a perfect getaway for two couples. The house was clean, spacious, and nicely furnished inside, in great working order, with two master suites, laundry facilities, full kitchen with granite countertops and plenty of kitchen tools and dishes, satellite TV, and high-speed internet. The two best features, however, are outside: a screened porch with a spectacular view of the ocean, perfect for morning coffee or relaxing in the evening, and a separate tiki area with outdoor kitchen (including gas grill), covered dining area, and a large hot tub, all surrounded by a 6-foot privacy fence.
In fact, the hot tub was our favorite destination every evening and the best part of a trip that would have been fantastic even without it.
The property is ideally located in the Keys as well--close to shops, local restaurants, and grocery stores on Key Largo, close enough to Miami for a day trip if you like, and only a couple of hours from Key West. Key Largo is definitely more low-key (pardon the pun) than Key West. The neighborhood was quiet for our stay, but Harry Harris Park is in easy walking distance (literally across the street) for shelling, sunbathing, or a dip in the lagoon. Although there is some sand in the lagoon area, as with almost everywhere in the Keys, don't expect a traditional sandy beach--if that's your goal, look elsewhere in Florida--but there are lots of nature-oriented things to do in the immediate area. The park's boat ramp, which is dead ahead of this property, provided lots of entertainment as drivers of various skill levels attempted to back their boat trailers down the ramp.
Do try some of the local restaurants on the island. We enjoyed Harriette's (breakfast and lunch--try the muffins) and Tower of Pizza while we were there. For sweet treats, we enjoyed Key Largo Chocolates and Ice Cream.
The owner was extremely helpful with our booking. All our pre-booking questions were answered promptly. Although our stay was entirely drama-free, we got the impression that the owner would have been responsive to any concerns.
This property is definitely at the top of our list for a return trip.
Beautiful home, awesome views, very clean and comfortable......great price...far better than any hotel any day! close to many attractions ...fishing, snorkeling, Key West, Key Largo, wonderful hot tub, loved walking on the beach...great area!
Our family of five (kids ages 15, 13, & 6) enjoyed our stay at this nice, clean rental. Everything was in great condition. The bed in the master suite was very comfortable!
The outside was actually nicer than the photos on this site.
The beach across the street was very nice. The snorkeling off the fishing pier was great! (Go just before sunset!). We saw lobsters, shrimp, sting rays, horseshoe crab, tons of fish, etc. Bring water shoes if you plan to snorkel here!
Overall, a great place to stay!
Since we travel to Key Largo a few times a year for scuba diving, we recently decided that a vacation rental would be much more comfortable than a hotel room for a week's stay. After doing my research on VRBO, I was fortunate to find this amazing rental...it was just perfect for us! This trip we traveled with another couple for a week of diving. The layout of this home was ideal for two couples. There were two bedrooms with a king sized bed in each, and each had its own attached bathroom - just what we needed!
The home was well furnished and we found everything we could possibly need in the kitchen. We enjoyed the comfortable living room with satellite TV and the spacious screened in balcony with an AMAZING view of the ocean! There is a privacy fenced area outside surrounding the hot tub, BBQ grill and patio table. The guys discovered the music controls under the gazebo and we had some fun times out there!
The only complaint I have is that Dairy Queen is located right down the street...after our daily stops for a "Blizzard" after our scuba diving outings, my cholesterol level is through the roof :-)
Dottie was so helpful with any questions I had. She answered all e-mails promptly and could not have made the experience any easier. Our deposit was mailed back to us just a few days after we departed! I would highly recommend this vacation rental for a visit to the Keys!
