About Hortensia or Jose Barrionuevo

We LOVE Key Largo and purchased this property in December 2004 so we can have a 'retirement home' in this beautiful area. We're still about 10 years away from retirement so we rent it out to families coming down to enjoy Key Largo. This way we help defray some of the costs of keeping up this home. We live an hour away, in Miami, and regularly visit Key Largo with our 8-year-old granddaughter who loves to stay at the 'beach house'!

Why Hortensia or Jose Barrionuevo chose Upper Florida Keys

It's cozy and comfy and very family oriented. We're helpful and respectful to our guests and try to help make everyone's stay a memorable vacation.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Traveled over spring break with my wife and 2 kids (6,12) and everything was great. Besides the place being exceptionally clean, it was literally steps away from the lagoon and swimming pool. The kids loved this while we sipped a few. Great location for families as the place calmed down as the night rolled in. Good location in Key Largo, and ideal for an R&R Vacation. Working with Hortensia was a breeze and we are committed to returning to the Keys and hope to have the opportunity to stay here again.

Wonderful place to stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. This condo is beautifully maintained and the beds are quite comfortable. We also appreciated the little extras like board games to play, movies to watch, books to read and the kayak to paddle around the lagoon that is a stone's throw from the sliding glass back door. It was such a treat to walk outside and see the iguanas and birds or go to the pool. I'd definitely recommend this property! Thank you Jose and Hortensia for sharing your lovely home!

Great place to stay. Close to activities. Quiet and relaxing at the end of the day.

  • 5 of 5

Hortensia was great. Very nice and helpful. The unit had a comfortable, home-like feel. It was very clean. Everything we needed was there and in adequate supply. We stayed at another VRBO on this trip and it felt very sterile. They only provided two packs of dishwasher soap, 2 rolls of toilet paper, etc.; we had to purchase any extra needed.(A real pain when you're on vacation.) Not so here. There was even a kayak and pool/sand toys. The lagoon was a big hit with our kids. It gave everyone a chance to learn to snorkel before we went out on a boat in the ocean and provided hours of entertainment. Being able to go to the dock and explore at low tide was fun too. We would definitely stay here again.

A Great Home Base for Touring the Keys and Homestead Shopping Outlets

  • 4 of 5

The unit was very spacious, clean and well supplied for 4-5 visitors. The pool is just a few steps from the back door, and it is just a two minute walk to the ocean front chairs. Instructions for acces were timely and simple to follow. The only suggestion for improvement would be a new mattress or at least comfort topper be added.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at your home over the Christmas Holiday and had the best time! The accomadations were beautiful and the location was perfect. We met so many wonderful people staying at the complex and in Key Largo. We relaxed by the pool, went kayaking on the lagoon and grilled out under the tiki hut. It was absolutely perfect....we did not want to leave! Jose and Hortensia made the arrangements so easy, and answered our questions in a timely manner. Flawless!! We will definitely be back next year! Best vacation ever!! Thank you for your hospitality and we will be in touch!!
