Venture Out is a gated community. There are an abundance of amenities, including an 80' olympic-sized, heated pool, which is located ocean-side, with separate kiddie pool; saltwater swimming/snorkeling area adjacent to the pool; and a newly remodeled bath house.

Cudjoe Key is close to both Key West and Marathon in the section of the Florida Keys known as the Lower Keys. This provides easy access to events such as the offshore powerboat races, sailing regattas, fishing tournaments, Fantasy Fest, Star Party, and many more. The Lower Keys include well-known destinations such as Big Pine Key, Summerland, and Sugarloaf.

About Robin

When I was a teenager I came to Key West with my parents in our families RV. I remember stopping at Venture Out they were just building it and we stopped to watch them cut the canals. Over the years we came to Venture Out and rented various units. Both of my sisters eventually purchased homes here and when I sold my home in CT I decided to buy here as well. I am originally from Long Island New York but currently live with my two sons in CT.

Robin purchased this house in 2012

Why Robin chose Cudjoe Key

This is a beautiful home with an amazing view and location. The boys and I spend all of our school vacations here where we enjoy the beautiful water of the island and take an easy drive into Key West for the fun! When you stay in Key West you tend to lose a sense of the natural beauty of the islands and the locals. When you stay too far up the islands the ride is too far to go into Key West and enjoy all the happenings. Venture Out on Cudjoe Key gives you just the right balance of both.

What makes this house unique

Venture Out resort is a wonderful place for kids and adults! My favorite thing to do is watch the boys fish while I lay on the couch! The boys have freedom to ride their bikes and go to the store for an ice cream. Real relaxation that you just can't get by staying at a hotel.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got home from Miles Away late last night from a wonderful week at Robin's place. The house was perfect for our family! It was larger than I thought and had everything we could have possibly needed. There was nothing like waking up and having coffee while watching the sunrise. We fished in the canal and just loved sitting out there taking in the amazing view! Miles Away was clean and very well furnished. The gas grill was in great condition and we used it, grilling fresh fish almost every night! The community is immaculately clean and beautiful. I couldn't have imagined a better vacation. We visited Key West, which is only about 20 miles away, several times. We also visited Bahia Honda State park one day and I must tell you I have been all over the Caribbean and this beach is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen! Breathtaking......but you need to experience it at low tide to fully see the amazing beauty. We visited some great restaurants in the area and visited Marathon. A highlight was being able to go on a game fishing charter...living in NC, our fishing charters are very different than fishing in the Keys! I can't tell you how wonderful it is being out on a boat, taking in all this amazing beauty. My husband and son fished for Tarpon and Amberjack that day but the highlight was shark fishing! They fished for Lemon Shark in 2 feet of water! They caught (and released) 5! What an amazing day! If anyone is trying to decide about Robin's house in Venture out, I can tell you that our family loved it! It is just close enough to Key West but when you drive 20 miles north to Cudjoe, it's like a different world. Thanks Robin for sharing your piece of paradise with us.....Trish and Steve

It was absolutely perfect. Plenty of storage space, and cooking utensils. Kitchen needed a little more lighting. Beautiful view, great fishing, nice quiet community. In the middle of everywhere we wanted to go. Thank you for an amazing few days.

Awesome rental property

  • 5 of 5

Great property. Kids loved it. Great fishing right off the back porch. Easy location to pull a boat into as well. Plenty of DVDs to keep the kids occupied during down time.

Close to key west and a fantastic restaurant but...

  • 2 of 5

The property needs some serious updating. The interior of the unit is old and dated....it was pretty clean though. We got there after 10:30 pm and ran out of TP before the next day was over. There was no tin foil, plastic wrap, or anything to wrap food in if you did cook there. No olive oil, vegetable oil or salt. Sorry, but those things should be included in the basics provided. Every other VRBO I've ever rented has had these types of things. The BBQ was old, paint chipping, with no real ability to control the temperature. The beds were uncomfortable....master bed was ok but others were not.

This place would be perfect maybe if your group was a couple of guys with a boat and only cared about fishing.

Sorry to give a bad review...I've never done that before, but we were sorely disappointed. 🙁�

Owner's Response: I’m so sorry you did not enjoy your vacation in my home and the beauty of the Keys. I was really taken aback by your impression that the house was dated. Everything is brand new, even the barbecue. (I know being directly on the water can be rough on my barbecues, but that one had to be less than 6 months old.) I guess this is simply your opinion and field of reference. This small cottage/home is a different experience than the large expensive hotels available in Key West. I suppose it is a matter of priorities and personal preferences and this simply wasn’t a good match for you. I do leave a fully equipped kitchen with Tupperware to store your food. I try to be environmentally conscious by not using wraps and foils. As for your personal choice of cooking oil that is really up to you. There is a store on site that carries a full selection of any items you may have forgotten or need. As for toilet paper the cleaners leave you enough to get you started and then you need to purchase enough depending on the length of your stay.
