                                                                  Owner's Response:


                                                                  Thank you for the review.

                                                                  However, we must object to the downgrading of the review due to the location of the home.

                                                                  Travelers know where the home is located before booking, so to now discount a point on the review is not fair.

                                                                  If you wanted a rental in Key West, you could have booked a rental there and paid twice the price.

                                                                  We offer a home away from home with many amenities at a reasonable price. We are conveniently located between Big Pine Key and Key West which is 20 miles away. The location is convenient for visits to Key West, Big Pine Key and Marathon all of which have many attractions and restaurants.

                                                                  Thank You,

                                                                  Mike & Carol, Owners

                                                                  Fantastic value!

                                                                  Simone F.New Orleans, LA

                                                                  We chose this property because of the amenities and it did not disappoint. We had literally everything we needed to fully enjoy our vacation, from beach supplies to board games to bikes. The extra gear meant no renting equipment, and the fully stocked kitchen (and grill!) meant we could eat at home for health and comfort. We also appreciated the safe and quiet resort. We biked and swam daily there and found everyone to be friendly and relaxed. We've stayed at many VRBO properties and for the price this one is a gem. The owners are quick to respond if you have any questions. Looking forward to a return visit some day!

                                                                  Phil P.

                                                                  The home was great, exactly as described and extremely clean. Only complaint is the "Security" office. They do not communicate between shifts which caused several issues and wasted time with my boat (I pulled it to a different marina almost daily) and visitors.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for the review of our home. We are happy that you found our home clean and as advertised.

                                                                  We apologize for the inconvenience you encountered with the resort's security regarding your boat. It is a large facility and sometimes communications can be lacking. We will pass your concerns along to the resort management and request that they address the lack of communications.

                                                                  Mike & Carol, Owners

                                                                  Diane B.

                                                                  Every thing was in working order and clean! Nice and quiet community.

                                                                  David K.

                                                                  The house is exactly what we needed. Close enough to Key West for a quick 30 minute drive. The community was nice and quiet. Even having to leave 24 hours early because of hurricane Irma we enjoyed our stay. Praying for everyone with hurricane Irma. The security guards were very pleasant and great at their job. The pool and saltwater swimming area was always kept clean. If the hurricane spares the house we will be back!!!! We will be repeat renters.

                                                                  This welcoming home was perfect for our family vacation!

                                                                  Candy P.Brookville, PA

                                                                  This property was warm and welcoming. The property description was accurate and the home was perfect for our family of five. The only minor inconvenience, and this is very minor, the ice maker was not working. This was fixed easily by getting ice at the general store in Venture Out. The bikes were much loved and a great way to get to the pool or other homes where friends were staying. The kayaks were available for use and a quick jaunt across the street to put in at the canal allowed for beautiful floats around Cudjoe. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, pots and pans, making preparing meals big and small a breeze. We loved the outdoor living space with the spacious porch and the large space under the home with the grill, shed and a very comfy hammock, perfect for a nap in the warm afternoon breeze. We will be booking this home in the future for our next vacation to the Keys!
