Our family has been traveling to the Keys since 1994. We fell in love with the Island Chain many years ago and finally realized our dream and bought our home. We have rented many different homes throughout the Keys and have an appreciation for what makes a great vacation home.
Joe Mittler purchased this house in 2011

The Ocean is a fantastic place to be awe struck. Our home is close to two of the largest Tiki Bar/Restaurants in the Lower Keys that has nightly live entertainment and great food. Located a half mile down the road, is Boondocks, which has the Only Putt-Putt course in the Lower Keys.
We spent 2 months in this lovely home and loved every minute of it. The home looks like the photos, very clean and neat. Even the first floor (where kayaks and bicycles are stored was clean and dry) As you climb the outside stairs you have access to the covered patio or enter the house in the kitchen/dining area. The living room is visible as the home has an open concept. Down the hall is a bathroom, 2nd bedroom and master suite with a nice stand up shower in the bathroom. The king size bed was very comfortable. An additional bedroom can be found at the top of the spiral staircase.
The canal along side of the property empties into a shallow bay (it does have a channel deep enough for boats) the shallow areas are great for kayaks because boats can't access the area. We saw a variety of fish, found an island to picnic on and treasure the time spent exploring the area.
There are two restaurants within walking distance. We ate at
both many times and found that Taco Tuesday at Lookeys is very popular so get there early.
This is a quiet area with friendly neighbors. Our visit was fantastic on the happy scale and Joe is a wonderful host. He was always available when we had a question and his directions were easy to follow. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and our experience here with Joe has been the best. I hope we have an opportunity to visit again soon.
Excellent property, very well equipped, with lots of activities for the entire family. Centrally located, yet far enough away to avoid congestion and not be isolated. All needs are supplied within a 5 mile radius, food, beverages, air fills, gas, bait and tackle.
Exactly as described in the VRBO ad and even better. House is extremely clean and well stocked with all the cleaning supplies and paper products needed for doing dishes, laundry, etc. That's a first for us in renting houses as we've always had to buy all those supplies before. Location is perfect for easy access to great fishing (Bahia Honda State Park, for example), and it's only 30 minutes from Key West. Only house we've ever rented that provided bikes and kayaks for our use. Love the corner canal location for watching all the boat traffic in and out. The only suggestion for improvement would be to screen in the porch so it could be used more bug free. The owners are a pleasure to work with and really care that you enjoy your stay in their beautiful home.
This home rental was excellent. The home is in a perfect location for water access, on a main canal to the ocean. The home was clean, well equipped, and easy to maintain while there. There is a great storage room downstairs to keep all your boating and diving equipment.The deck , dock, and cleaning table are in great shape, the deck is amazingly spacious. The owners are friendly, and always accessible for questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home, and hope we can do it gain next year. An excellent value for a great vacation getaway.
Our stay was wonderful from beginning to end. We found everything just as promised in the vrbo photos, description and correspondence with the owner. The corner lot is lovely and an easy few minutes to open water. There are plenty of decks and seating options to enjoy the evening breezes after sunny days boating, kayaking or riding bikes. The house is well appointed. The beds are all quite comfortable with plenty of linens and the kitchen is equipped with all the necessities plus a few extras. Everything about our stay was a pleasure, from first contact with the owner to the prompt refund of the deposit and all available to enjoy in between.
We chose this home for our 3rd annual Keys vacation and were very happy with our choice. A very nice home with all the amenities including kayaks and bicycles allowed for a very nice stay. Very comfortable and clean, a nice neighborhood (corner lot) and the owners were very cordial and accomdating in every way, including a prompt refund or our security deposit (This has not been the case with some other homes we've rented in the past). If I had to be overly critical, the one "issue" I can think of would be that even though this house is positioned for some beautiful sunsets from the decks, there is a limited area between other homes to allow for a sunset view all the way to the water and we were not there at the right time of the year to be able to take advantage of that. Had we been, everything about this home would have been perfect. That said, this home did offer a better sunset view than any other we've stayed in to date, and probably as good as it can get for anything in this price range. All in all, we left very satisfied and enjoyed our entire stay immensely. We would recommend this home to anyone looking for the features this home has to offer.
Enjoy the use of 2 adult beach cruiser bikes and one kids bike. 2, two person Kayaks. Short drive to Key West
