About Jeanne & Heather

Jeanne and her daughter in law Heather love the keys and working together. We strive to make our bookings easy. Heather became Jeanne's daughter in law in 2016. Our family loves the Keys and have been coming to them since 1999 so our youngest son who married Heather grew up in the Keys!

Jeanne & Heather purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jeanne & Heather chose Central Florida Keys

We love the Keys!! We walk the island of Duck Key everyday. The Keys just keep inviting us back.

What makes this villa unique

The Sanctuary Villas at Hawks Cay are very private with a tranquil setting. Enjoy the Keys by day and by night just relax and take a dip in our private pool

An immaculate home in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

The listing for this propoerty is totally accurate and if anything the villa is even more lovely when you arrive. It is immaculate inside, very well appointed and really welcoming space - with enough room for a family to have their own space. Jeanne was a delight to correspond with and her property Manager Irene quickly sorted out a couple of hiccups along the way. The villa comes with everything you might need and more. The pool is perfect for lazy days ( and we did use the resort pool one day but found it very busy and noisy so qucikly retreated back to our own sanctuary! ) The villas are quite close to each other so if you get a large family next door who arrive in 3 cars, it can get very noisy and access can become a problem ( even though residents are asked to use the nearby car park, rather than park on the pavement or grass.) Thankfully after 3 nights of pool parties till 4 o'clock they left and the villa became lovaly and quiet again!!!!

Thanks also for your restaurant and outings recommendations Jeanne, the No Name pub at Big Pines Key has to be seen and the cute Key deer too. Franks Grill was also very good - but be warned - you really don't need a starter as the porions are enormous and they give you soup or salad too!! We also took an outing on a glass bottomed boat from the John Pennekamp State Park at Key Largo to see the Reef - a really great trip.

The only downside with a privatre rental here, is that Hawks Cay resort is very petty about access - the pools were not a problem but our teens were unable to enter the coral activity centre to make new friends or take part in evening poolside activities ( one of the resort's big selling points) - even if you offer to pay. No reflection on Jeanne or her lovely home, just a niggle about the resort, after all you are staying there and spending money at their property - the Alma restaurant is very good, as is the spa, so you would think they would want to find a way of working with all guests!!

Thanks for letting us stay at your lovely Villa Jeanne, we had a great time and fully recommend it.

Best Of Duck Key and Hawks Cay

  • 5 of 5

Jeanne, your place is amazing. My family and friends have visited Hawks Cay numerous times over the years and finally decided to give VRBO a try this time around. We could not have been more pleased with our decision. The place was immaculate upon check in and everything was as advertised if not better. Beds and bedding like a 5 star hotel, living areas perfect, plenty of tv's to keep everyone happy at night. The kitchen was stocked to keep any chef happy, right down to the spices. Having a private pool in your backyard is priceless, and the back deck provided a great place to hang out and enjoy a cocktail in the afternoon after a swim. Your attention to detail and the open and quick line of communication you provided went above and beyond. We will be back for sure on our next visit. Thank you for a wonderful time! Highly recommend.

Bill from Pa.

We were looking for some R&R getaway to the "Keys" and since we had done the Key West excursion before we thought we would try and stay up a little on the chain of islands in the Keys. I went on VRBO picked Duck Key has a option and one of the first selections on my "needs list" was Jeanne's place.

What a fantastic owner that responded to all my questions with such promptness. She gave us insight on local restaurants as well as how the amenities at the resort would work also. Everything she told us of was perfect. All 3 of our couples were very impressed with the home and all the comforts of like being in your own home and location was top notch.

I would recommend this home/owners to anyone looking for a trip to paradise to relax and soak up some of the Florida sunshine.

Thank you Jeanne for being so gracious with your home and info, we truly would consider this property again if venturing to Duck Key in the future.

This home is just perfect. The kitchen is so well equipped we ate dinner at "home" on the spacious covered porch overlooking the lovely private pool every night.

Comfortable, immaculate and so convenient, to all the resort amenities, our family loved it. We look forward to our next visit

Awesome Relaxing Vacation in the Keys!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great place to stay. A beautiful house and the pool in the back was great. We traveled with another family and there was plenty of room for the eight of us. The best thing was the pool. Kids would wake up, watch a little TV and then in the pool for an hour or so until we were ready to head out for the day. We didn't use the resort much, but never had a problem getting into the Adventure Park or by the pool/lagoon. Well kept property and very clean. I would definately stay here again.

This was our first experience using VRBO and it couldn't have went smoother. Jeanne kept everything simple and coresponding with her was easy. She usually responded to my questions within a couple of hours.
