Great view, clean, and lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home away from home. Has all the kitchenware and linens/towels for a very relaxing stay. Beautiful view of the ocean. Awesome bikes and kayaks. So much to offer! We had 3 other families stay at other rentals within venture out and they all agreed this was superior to the others! Thank you!

Quite, friendly resort park

  • 4 of 5

Home was comfortable with everything you'd need for a nice vacation

The only thing that would of made it better was if the bikes were maintained ( rusted, chain off, extremely uncomfortable seats)

Owner's Response: Randi, Thank you for the review. We understand your comment about the bikes and apologize for their condition. Please understand that we do work hard to keep everything in good condition. Please know that you will not find many bikes in the Florida keys without rust. The salt air quickly corrodes most all metal surfaces. As far as the bike with the chain off, if you had contacted our Rental Manager, they would have sent someone over to fix the chain. Lastly, we have 5 adult bikes and 2 kids bikes. Some of the seats do have gel covers for a more comfortable ride. We will add more of these on our next maintenance trip down to the house. Mike & Carol, Owners

Clean, well-equipped, and great central base for Key adventures

  • 4 of 5

House was clean with a well-equipped kitchen and great as more of a "beach" house (close to the water but not by the beach). We appreciated having our own washer and dryer and loved the pool and resort amenities. The location on Cudjoe Key was fairly central to get to either Key West or to Big Pine Key and Marathon Key for other activities. It did seem a little cramped for the 6 of us but that's to be expected for a "beach" house. We'd love to visit again!

Great visit to the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We were glad to see how well the Keys have come back after Hurricane Irma. This home in Cudjoe Key is very centrally located so we were able to go to Key West several days and fishing in the central Keys for a couple days. The home was located in Venture Out Resort and the folks there were very friendly.
