Perfect for Just Relaxing or Exploring the Fla Keys

  • 4 of 5

Located on the North end of the Keys, this cottage provides superb access to a whole host of activities. It is directly across the street from a large snorkel/dive shop. Charter fishing, glass bottom and sunset cruises are a 5 minute walk. Everglades national part is a 45 minute dive and Key west is only a couple hours drive. The cottage itself is very clean and easily fits 4 people in two bedrooms. A pullout couch can hold more people if needed. Everything you need to is there.... whether it be for a place to simply relax or a base of operations to explore the area.

Great location in Key Largo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice 2-bedroom home centrally located in Key Largo. Close to many restaurants and activities (dive shop, bike rentals, other water sports right across the street). Clean and comfortable - all as described in the listing. We visit the keys every year if we can, and will add this to our list of places to return again.

Great little House

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with all amenities included. Interesting neighborhood with lots going on. Can walk along the canal and watch the boats going out. Check out the African Queen and walk down to Skippers for lunch and dinner and Sharkeys for breakfast. A further walk takes you to the local park and all kinds of activities. Walked there everyday with our dog. Dog was happy at the house and also at doggie daycare at the Pet Motel. We would definitely go back.
