An upstairs porch where you can enjoy the views of the ocean and a very private downstairs covered porch with chairs, table and hammock in case you want to enjoy barbecuing poolside,heated pool (86° in winter) with outdoor shower or just enjoy some time alone reading in the hammock. Outdoor ping pong table (under roof) and board games to play. We've spent the better part of our lives enjoying the Keys so if you're a first timer we're happy to share our favorite place

Area: In my mind's eye, we're the most ideal situation in all the Keys. Cudjoe Key is primarily a residential key, not the hustle/bustle of the Upper Keys which I consider a suburb of Miami at this point. We used to own in the Upper Keys but ventured into our area in search of the last vestige of what the Keys are all about, laid back little string of islands with the most amazing water in the world. We are 20 minutes from Key West and all the obvious advantages to that and we are 20 minutes from Bahia Honda State Park voted one of the top ten beaches in the United States.

Wonderful Place to Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We have rented multiple homes through VRBO and Heron's Roost was the best yet. The home and grounds are meticulous. We choose this property for its location in the lower keys. It was great to have a quiet home base yet be so close to Key West and outstanding natural attractions. The owner shares her "best" of list and it was spot on for restaurants, water activities and grocery stores. We are family that loves to eat out but also cook. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything one needs. The BBQ served us well as we cooked fresh local fish several nights. The pool was well maintained and the perfect place to cool off. One of the biggest surprises were the comfortable beds in each of the rooms. No tossing, no turning and no achy back in the a.m. Outstanding. I personally haven't slept better in quite some time. Would most definitely recommend this property and will rent from Linda again if we find our way back to the Keys!

Home in paradise!!!

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and so very welcoming, lots of space with comfortable beds!!! Full of things you need to make your stay easy accept as a tea drinker I missed a kettle!! The decor is lovely and the furniture is comfortable and well maintained, ample supply of towels for inside and outside. The pool was lovely and a welcome relief from the heat, the outside area is huge but I was slightly disappointed about the 'beach' by the dock as it was just stones, we saw lots of sea life just walking up and down the dock and I did enjoy snorkelling around there - a real octopuses garden! There were a lot of iguanas which just made our stay more perfect they are comical creatures and will just run off if you approach them so not scary at all!! The location is perfect - it's a lovely peaceful area but take a 15 minute drive and your in downtown Key West so the best of both worlds!!! To make our stay better we would of liked to see a couple of kayaks included with the rental as in other places we have stayed, this however would never be a reason for not staying at Heron's Roost as my husband and I would go back in a flash and we are missing our home away from home terribly!!! Highly recommend this property for your vacation!!!!!

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a great time and enjoyed the Keys. You mention being disappointed about the 'beach' by the dock. We don't say there is a 'beach' by the dock because there isn't, there is just a sandy area (Keys sand is rough and more coarse - ground coral is what it actually is - than say the sand in the western part of Florida) There are dozens and dozens of places on the gulf side and ocean side to rent kayaks very cheaply and both sides are very different and enormously interesting. We used to have kayaks at the property and people mentioned they could only go around the immediate area and got tired of that. So when renter's left the kayaks too close to the water and the tide carried them away, we decided it was better not to replace but rather to encourage them in going to different spots. Very cheap to rent them!

Outstanding Location😎

  • 5 of 5

The discription of the property is spot on, the house is clean and comfortable, plenty of parking even for the truck and trailer.The pool is definitely a plus and the house being on stilts provides a nice area underneath for fun and games even if it rains, your not stuck in the house. We did go to Key West and that to was an easy drive, watched the sunset and had dinner down there. Brought my boat which we put in at the marina right around the corner, so the dock was perfect for that and the property was maticulously landscaped and private, loved all the iguanas and land crabs. We will definitely be back next year, can't wait!!

Our Go To Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying at Heron's Roost for about five years. The house is in a great location with plenty of things to do. It is well maintained and clean. We go out in the boat and then enjoy hanging out in the refreshing pool. Lots of great restaurants near by or a fully stocked kitchen to stay home and cook.

Very Nice Home!

  • 4 of 5

The beds were very comfortable. Everything we needed was there. The decor was pretty and everything was very comfortable. The view was lovely. But there were storms while we visited which of course are under no control by the owner! The only possible thing I could have wished for was some ankle deep clear water for my little ones to play in. We chose this rental based on a photo that looked like there would be shallow clear water for the kids. That is the only possible downside. The water was a little murky and too deep for our little girls to play in the ocean. This place was great. The boys fished off the dock. The kitchen was well stocked and the linens were very nice. Plenty of sleeping space. The kitchen table was very comfortable and I loved the fish painting place mats. The living room was very nice and we loved the deck. The kids swam in the pool every day which was conveniently located so that we could be in the house and mostly keep an eye on them when we were too exhausted to swim anymore! There were iguanas all over which was a great point of interest for our son who celebrated his 13th birthday at this home while on vacation. He caught several of them with great joy! Our daughters loved the pool most of all. There were beach towels to use and plenty of nice towels for bath time. The kitchen had everything we needed (save maybe some plastic baggies or food storage). Anyway, it was a great home to stay. It was very clean and very well maintained.

Our area has some wonderful restaurants just minutes away; we have a little market on Summerland Key (3 minutes) that has everything from Coleman Colorado beef to white truffle oil to Boar's Head deli meats etc and a Winn Dixie on Big Pine 10 minutes, or Publix etc in Key West 20 minutes. Two terrific local fish markets provide you with fish caught the day you buy it - get it at the source. We also have hundreds of acres of Bird Sanctuary on Cudjoe Key were we drive in the evening and watch the herons and ibis flying purposefully while we watch the sunset. Key West Golf Club 15 minutes away.

Other Activities: kayaking, ping pong table
