The Villa overlooks Boot Key Harbor with its beautiful sunsets to the West and refreshing breezes from the East that travel down Sisters Creek, a natural waterway that leads to great diving and fishing grounds of the Atlantic.
Across Sisters Creek there is a natural preserve and no neighbors. It is private, exclusive and a great destinantion.
Large pool, private Tennis court, spectaculars views, only one neighbor, great sunsets and great location, close drive to Grocery and Liquor store and wonderful local fare restaurants.
Our family has been staying at this home every September for the past several years and we love it! The seawall is a magnificant place to watch the colorful sunsets; not to mention the great igauna and manatee watching that goes on there! We do a lot of fishing off the seawall too. The fish cleaning table is handy when we unload from our boat that is docked off the seawall. The pool is a fun place to keep cool and watch all the boat traffic - the lobster and fishing boats returning for the day. The house has a perfect layout and is very comfortable. It is conviently located near grocery and souvenir shopping. I would recommend it for families of all ages! We can't wait for next year!!
This place is great! We would definitely consider staying there again!
Some feedback and improvement ideas.
We absolutely loved heated swimming pool. Fishing off the dock was awesome. We even saw some manatees! We enjoyed playing tennis, but there could be light so we could play after sunset.
On the first floor there is no dishwasher in the kitchen. There is no big dining table either. These two things were inconvenient for us since we liked to eat together with the whole family. The existing glass round table is unbound and dangerous with the kids.
So not worth the money. The pictures on this website do not match up with what the house looks like. If I had to guess I would say they are at least 10 to 15 years old and so is the furniture in the house and most of it is broken in some way or another. So many more places out there that are so much more nicer than this. Broken furniture, wore out broken down beds, two spoons in the kitchen, nasty stains all over the ceiling, dirty nasty duct tape hanging off the doors, broken Furniture outside. I rented a property not just a nice pool. Told by the rental agent, to get over the negative and find the positive, basically shut my mouth. Asked if we could get out of a contract because the place was so run down, after staying just one night and was told too bad. There was mold in the shower outside where you're told you have to take a shower before you get in the pool, it was just gross. I must say I've never been treated more poorly in all of my travels. Was told to go to the upstairs of the unit but it smelled horrible. And all we were told was too bad they said they would give us another week but we don't want to stay there because it's so nasty we just wanted some of our money back and they just kept saying no. These are not fair business people.
Had a great stay. The owner and manager both really nice and very helpful. Like the idea of the cut in to keep your boat. Caught plenty of fish right off the dock. The place was super clean when we arrived. I would stay here again.
Villa Sombrero has topped the charts for a vacation rental as far as I'm concerned. My husband and I along with 2 other couples went to marathon to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We had a great time even though the weather wasn't in our favor. We made the best of it. We fished every single day off of the seawall on the property and caught enough fish for a fish fry for 6. We made use of the pool whenever we could which was very clean and very relaxing. Both upstairs and downstairs units were very clean upon arrival and both were supplied with everything we needed. We grilled outside every night and listened to the outside stereo which was very nice. We brought our 20 ft boat and docked it right at the house which was really convenient. The property manager Gary was always very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. Made a trip to key west and had a good time even though it rained all day. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone we know that might be taking a trip to the keys. We can't wait to go back again.
We just returned from a trip to the Keys. we had a fabulous time. We stayed at the Villa Sombrero, and the entire group had one of the best trips ever! the Villa is easy to find, close to shopping and some great places to eat. We saw a few manatees and dolphins right in front of the house. Enjoyed the fact that while I was swimming, another couple was playing tennis, a few were fishing, one lounging in the hammock and another reading a book by the pool, we could all talk to each other as well! Only about and hour to Key West and about a 30 minute boat trip to Sombrero Reef, where we enjoyed a couple days of snorkeling. We will definitely be back...super great place.
