My husband and I fulfilled a life long dream of buying a place in the keys! We've traveled there for vacations with our 4 sons for over 30 yrs and our dream came true in 2011. We've been improving our place a little each year and it's so comfortable and homey. We enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, people watching, fishing, and just hanging out listening to various bands. We would like to share our home with others and have tried to make it reasonable. I've worked all my life as office manager and retail manager...looking forward to enjoying my golden yrs. my husband worked for CSX Railroad for over 30 yrs so he is enjoying retirement also. Hope you all come visit our home!

I had a slight problem booking the place but owner genell was extremely helpful. My son. Just got back from his fifth tour in the desert and wanted to come for a visit. I thought it would be nice to show his new wife the keys. She is from Germany. The place was clean and homey nothing fancy but a great location in a well managed mobile community nice pool close to key west locked community on the water. We had our pets and there were no restrictions and a small fee. We decided to,stay an extra day and genell contacted the real estate agent and everything was taken care of seamlessly. It happened to be the week of the aweful snow storm in buffalo and the kids are from Niagara falls so they were thrilled to be in the warm weather. There were plenty of instructions for us when we got there so we were able to find everything we needed. Thank you again Genell and family for sharing your home with us
This was our first "try" at being snowbirds...we will do it again. This unit was very cozy, comfortable and clean. Venture Out has so many amenities and activities - great place! Everyone wants to be in the heart of Key West, not us...we are out of the bustle but close enough to visit. Can't say enough.. loved our month...sad to leave this morning.
We've visited the Keys several times and this was one of our best trips yet. This home was just right for us and we loved that it was pet friendly so that our fur kids could join us as well. Venture Out is a nice, quiet and safe area. There is a bit of construction going on, but it didn't bother us one bit. The pool area is very nice and there is even a boat ramp. This home was clean and well maintained. The upper level bedroom stays a little warmer than the rest of the house, so I'd recommend using the lower level bedroom if you are traveling solo or as an individual couple. The beds were very comfortable and the washer and dryer were very handy. The pet walking area is outside of Venture Out, so that is slightly inconvenient but won't stop us from returning. We are looking forward to returning to this rental in what I hope is the near future!
This was our first time traveling below Marathon. I had done little research on the area and was unsure what to expect. The rental process was very easy. Everyone at Dolberry Realty was a pleasure to deal with. From the time we entered Venture Out we felt welcome. Arriving at the home was a pleasant surprise. The inside is very roomy and was very comfortable for our party of two adults and two teenagers (two big boys). It is very clean and well equipped to cook your catch. The outdoor area has a grill, patio table and chairs. In back are two lounge chairs. My wife enjoyed sitting there in the sun reading. The place is well kept. The pool and rec center are open until 11. There is a nice area along the sea wall with chairs where we sat and watched the boats. This is a very family friendly place. It would be a great place for several families to meet and vacation together.
Eating out is expensive. We liked Mangrove Mamas pizza. The Square Grouper is good. Anywhere you go with four people will be about a $100. Most of the time we stayed in and cooked our own meals.
The area is close to Bahia Honda and Key West. For a nice relaxing beach day with the family, Bahia Honda is the best. We went to Key West to a beach near the Naval Air Station. The beach was ok. There was a cruise ship in port and Fantasy Fest was starting at the end of the week. We somehow ended up driving down Duvall street. Definitely not for younger kids or someone who is easily offended. We went to Divers Direct on Tuesday. It was tutu Tuesday. Not sure if it happens every Tuesday. You might want to go to the dive shop on Wednesday.
If scuba diving or fishing is on the agenda, a lot of research should be done unless a professional guide is hired. We had a boat and wasted a lot of time guessing where the fish and bugs were hiding. That's why we didn't catch anything. For any pleasure scuba, go to the ocean side. Don't go to American Shoal. Not much there. We didn't make it to Looe Key. From everyone we talked to, we missed a very nice day trip.
Overall, this is a great place for a family or a couple. There is something for everyone. A short drive will satisfy the sun lovers, the fishermen, the divers, the shoppers and the partiers.
It is truly a "Little Bit Of Paradise"
We were very comfortable during our stay. We had plenty of towels. Beds were comfortable. Loved the heated pool and the fact that it was open until 11:00 pm. Great location - close to Key West but able to come back to a quiet place. The bikes need some attention to the tires but since we didn't expect to have the bikes we didn't miss them.
Me and a few buddies went down to do some work and play...we had a fabulous time. the house had plenty of room for 3 guys with all the equipment to cook our meals. The DVR was nice to have so we could record our fave shows while we hung out most nights down key west. Boy, that is a fun place! The resort had lots of things to do, swim, tennis, bocce, fish off wall. The house also had a infrared grill that came in handy too. Will definitely go back, rate was very reasonable, had all we needed and had lots of FUN!
Had a wonderful stay. Everything was accurate on Internet, owner answered all my questions honestly. This location was close to many sites in the lower keys. I would highly recommend Bahia Honda Beach, it's all natural and you can snorkel and kayak too. So many good restaurants too. The resort facilities were great, lots to do if you wanted to spend a day there. A short walk to the resort store if you forgot or needed something. The view from the water was stunning and a great place to watch the sun come up! You even have a great view of the sunrise by pool. Sitting outside in the am with cup of coffee and pm was a nice end to the day with good conversation and a few drinks. Having two bedrooms was incredibly convenient. There are plenty of kitchen supplies to make meals right at "home". That's really what this was, a home away from home. I would highly recommend a stay at this location you will not be disappointed. Having a washer/dryer in the unit was an added benefit. I am already contemplating a return trip!
This gives you FULL access to the marina, pool, tennis courts, billiards, playground, jacuzzi and more.
