Good locatioon, nice yard and right next to the ocean propety needs some TLC
First the good news. it is hard to get a short term rental during the season and this was open for the 4 nights we wanted. It was on the Key we wanted to be on and was the right size unit at the right price. It has a wonderful yard that the grand kids could play in and the screened in poach was an added plus. the owner was responsive by email and good to deal with.
Now the bad news. Not sure who is responsible for the drive way/street that goes to the unit but there are 3 6 ft to 8 ft pot holes that are 6 inches deep. when filled with water after a rain they are hard to get around and you can do damage to your car. The unit itself has several short comings: the bed is the worst we have ever slept on; the couch is not much better; there are four burned out lights in the kitchen 1 in the bath and 1 in each of the ceiling fans; the ceiling fan blades were filthy; the bedroom door does not work and while you can close the bath door getting it open is a real challenge; no shower curtain; there are 5 missing slats on the blind over the sliding door and you cannot close the blind; the porch is missing a fan and there is pealing paint in multiple places on the porch. we were offered a topper for the full size bed, only to be told they only had a king and it was being used. I ended up on the pull out, but they only brought a bottom sheet and a blanket, no top sheet. A little TLC would go a long way for this property.
Great location. Kayaked every morning. It’s a quiet Key, but close to The more happening Keys. It’s a cute cottage, could use a little TLC.
Nice cottage right on the water.
It was a small cottage right on the water. There was a small dock with a chaise lounger that was very nice to relax on and take in the water views and the warm sun. The decor was a little dated and could use a facelift, but it was clean and comfortable. It was about 30 minutes to Key West, but there were good restaurants and bars much closer if you don't want to make the drive.
A great couples getaway bungalow.
Wonderful location. Perfect for two people.
We had a great stay. Close enough to Key West were were able to enjoy walking by the city.
Relaxed and Rejuvenated
Hubby and I enjoyed our time here. We wanted to be away from the hubbub of Key West, but close enough to visit daily. Other needs included: a space to park our camper, and ability to bring our dog. Both accomplished. We enjoyed the pool, screened in back porch, views of the water and wildlife, and simple floorplan.
Disliked the electric stove--the large burner doesn't work, so had to use a large pan on the small eye. No deal breaker, though. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would recommend it to others.
Only 20 miles from Key West, but a world away from the hustle and bustle. Our sparkling pool, kayaks, small boat launch and dock ensure you'll find a way to enjoy the natural beauty of the Lower Keys. Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary is accessible by boat and is home to over 150 species of fish. Runners and cyclists will find easy access to the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail - 75 miles of paved trail tracing the original course of the Flagler Railroad.
