Pics do NOT do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a unforgettable experience in the Keys that will completely wreck you for any other rental, then come to this house! The caretaker was on the ball and gave us all the information we needed to be comfortable. The house has 3 levels and is intelligently laid out, with two living areas (upstairs and down). Classic adults/kids scenario. There are two master suites, another bedroom big enough for a master, and four other bedrooms (two with bunk beds). The beds are all outfitted with luxury linens and the bedrooms are well appointed. Each bedroom has access to a deck. Bedrooms on the front have their own private decks, as well as one of the masters in the back. The master baths are mirrors of each other, each with fantastic showers and jetted tubs. The kitchen has everything - and I mean EVERYTHING - you could possibly want for cooking. I kept finding things in drawers that I wouldn't see even at my own house, much less expect in a rental. Towels, towels, towels...more towels than you can shake a stick at. Thoughtful little inclusions, like a fully stock spice cupboard, sugar, and such. Two refrigerators - one inside as a regular refrigerator, one outside for bait. The pool is always fantastically warm, and we braved Florida's summer mosquitoes to swim at night. Bahia Honda is close if you're looking for Bahamas water to swim in with the kids. Key West is only 30 minutes away. The house is utterly private, we never ever saw or heard any neighbors except to very occasionally pass them on the road when we drove in or out. The house is close to everything yet completely away. My favorite part was the dock, 165' long and looks out over the water in almost complete silence. The water around the dock is crystal clear as well. The grounds were immaculately contained and we had iguanas, geckoes, and chameleons every day for the kids to chase. Even if we hadn't gone out to Ft. Zachary Taylor beach or Bahia Honda, we would have been perfectly happy just to hang out at the house. There are no classic Keys missteps, like stinky air or water, road noise, rowdy neighbors, annoying bar music. It was a dream vacation and we are absolutely planning to come back. After the first 30 minutes, I turned to my husband and said, "We are coming here EVERY YEAR!" He enthusiastically agreed. Next year we plan on doing some dives off Looe Key and spending a bit more time sightseeing, but we're planning on doing it with the house as home base.

Unforgettable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are 16 in my family, 5 couples and 6 children ~ all boys! We had a fantastic time at this beautiful home. The grounds are spectacular and kept up so nicely. The dock was wonderful, we had plenty of room to tie our boat up at it. The boys played outside from swimming in the pool to fishing and snorkeling off of the dock. During our stay we had several iguana's come and visit us at the pool, along with key deer and baby racoons. As far as the house is concerned. . .it's a dream, there was plenty of room for all of us, never feeling cramped. The boys stayed in the lower level of the house with a huge flat screen TV and two rooms with bunk beds AND their own bathroom, giving all of us adults plenty of room on the 2nd level to play games and hang out. The kitchen was a great place for us to cook our dinners at night, and the open area of the 2nd level made it very cozy having everyone around.

AWESOME AND UNFORGETTABLE VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 people in our party which included 7 teens. The home was beautiful and well appointed, the grounds were very tropical and beautiful as well! We brought our boat with us and experienced amazing sights snorkeling at Looe Key. Best snorkeling than any island we have vacationed at and we have traveled to many! We spend plenty of time just relaxing in the pool as well. The dock behind the house had an abundance of wildlife as well...nurse sharks, baracuda, sea turtle, sting rays, lobster, crab and plenty of nice sized snapper! The kids snorkeled and did some spear fishing back there. 17 nice keeper mahi caught offshore in an hour! Too bad we didn't register for the tournament! Caught tons of other fish as well! GREAT TRIP

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was simply amazing! We had 7 adults and 5 children, there was more than enough room for all of us day & night; never one time did we feel as though we were cramped or tripping over each other. The two living areas was perfect to allow the children to play and watch tv while the adults enjoyed the upper living room. The home is beautifully decorated and maintained, the pride of the owners and caretaker is easily visible.

We compared staying in the home as though we had our own private resort because thats exactky what it felt like! The kitchen is well stocked, plenty of linens, 2 laundry rooms, and the beds comfortable. The outside is a haven! Well manicured and spacious, it made for great playtime for the kids and a relaxing oasis for the adults! We even made homemade lemonade from the lemons growing on the trees out back, yum!

We will definitely be returning guests!

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

We had five couples and one 8 year old and were celebrating several birthdays. Everyone had their own bathroom which was great. This is a very secluded house. We never heard or saw neighbors except coming and going on the main road. We docked two boats for the week. Other reviews said the dock was high but we never had any problems getting in and out of the boats. We caught lots of fish and one lobster five minutes from the dock. We rented a paddle board for the week and they delivered right to the house. Only about 20 minutes from Key West and close to Big Pine and Marathon. Everyone in our group had a blast and loved the house. It was worth every penny and we would definitely stay here again. We felt grateful the owner allowed us to share this beautiful house.
