Great vacation at Keywest.

  • 5 of 5

Great property, great location, & great price!

Thank you so much, Linda, for allowing my family to stay and enjoy the Keys, FL.

The property is so clean, and the gated community is safe & peaceful. Just 20 minutes to Keywest. No noise and hassle around here. Enjoyed the sunrise every morning, and tried fishing from right at the dock with some luck. I'll rent a boat on next visit....

Very friendly neighbors and management staffs. Lots of attractions and watersports are everywhere at nearby and in Keys. We had the chance to enjoy all kinds of watersports and attractions, at much cheaper price than any other East coast resorts. And especially the views.... wonderful!

We'll definitely come back to enjoy more..... Thank you again, Linda. You're the best.

Needs some TLC

  • 1 of 5

While this unit has beautiful view, it is unfortunate that some areas are not maintained well. I have rented it for four year expecting things to improve each year but instead they has gotten worse. Linda, the ever defensive manager/owner has more excuses than solutions. The first thing that needs to be done is that the unit should to be tented. The ants crawled on us in the living room and the bathroom has the winged species. I will not go back and have already found another location of the many, many other places to rent.

Owner's Response: Sometimes when encountering very difficult people and trying and trying to accommodate they finally wear you down. They asked if they could rent another one of my houses next year. I declined and gave them the name of another realtor they could go to. This 'ever defensive manager' (me) had written in her rentor's information about the little sugar ants known all over Florida. They don't bite, they are teeny weeny and they are part of the tropics. We spray monthly for insects but even so the exterminators have said they grow immune and formulas need to be changed. Every house in Florida encounters them and they don't bother most anyone I know. One star is the lowest possible score one can get on HomeAway and is an attempt to undermine my reputation. But there are times in life you do what you have to do. Send them on their way.

Even better than advertised

  • 4 of 5

Some places you see in brochures or online look very nice until you get there and are disappointed.Not this place. Absolutely gorgeous views from the back deck.Comfortable beds. Appliances looked practically brand new. The ants were a little annoying at times, but we were forewarned about them. It wasn't that big of an issue really. We just put all of our snacks and stuff in ziplock bags. It definitely wouldn't stop me from booking this house again. The ladies at the security gate were great, I thought the security at the pool was way overboard though. An older gentleman made a two-year-old take off inflatable arm floats , that's ridiculous. It's a safety issue, would he rather see her drown? And I was 3 feet from the water talking to my wife, and he made me step back two more because I had a can of beer in my hand, again totally unnecessary. I know rules are rules, but it was borderline harassment. I mean you're on vacation , as long as you're not doing anything stupid, you should be able to enjoy yourself when you're at the pool. Other than that, the place was very very nice, and the house was great. Me and my wife both said we would book this house again with no problem. Linda,you really do have a piece of paradise here! The house and the surrounding area, with Key West only a 25 minute drive, we had one of the best vacations ever. There is no reason to ever go to a caribbean island again, you feel like you're in the caribbean when you're here.

Another Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd vacation at this home in Cudjoe Key. We had an awesome time fishing with Paul Prue....we took 2 full day fishing trips with him. We had a blast! The house is comfortable with 4 people. It has all the basic amenities you need but could use a new bed in the king size bed room. My friend that stayed in that room is only 5'3"...if another topper gets put on she said she would need a step stool! With that being said, would we stay here again...absolutely! The location of this house is beautiful, the morning sunrise is breathtaking! The house is very clean and just perfectly located. Its quiet and only 20 minutes to Key West. I gave it 5 stars because it is just perfectly situated in a gated community.

Owner's Response: That's so nice of you to write! So after your bed observations I immediately went over to see what was happening. The king sized bed is 5 years old but we had purchased, which we automatically do for ALL of the beds in our houses, a 4" pillow top for an added comfort and height. Aha! So what I found was the the housekeepers had, for some odd reason, taken the pillow top and put it UNDER the mattress which added an element of softness not uncomfortable but not optimum for the pillow top ON the mattress. Problem solved. Have no idea why they did this other than a reason they gave which was the sheet fits better that way. Jeepers, wish you all had called me while you were there instead of when your week was over and no chance to solve the problem in a moment. Happy you were happy otherwise but know that the bed situation has been solved. Thanks so much Linda
