Why Alex chose Lower Florida Keys

We purchased this property because it is near our favorite fishing, spearfishing, lobstering and diving spots plus has stunning sunrises and sunsets. Nice big private lot and a 290 ft breathtaking private dock.

It also has a great advantage, no matter if it is rainy, cloudy or windy out in the ocean, you always get to fish right off the dock!

What makes this house unique

No matter if you have a boat or not, you can fish right off the dock....NO matter if it is stormy out on the ocean, you can still fish right off the dock !

Awful

  • 1 of 5

My family just stayed at this property, it was filthy! The place had a bunch of stored workout equipment stored inside and on the porch- it was weird! Everything is very old and worn, the couches had duct tape on them and the kitchen was gross. Everything we ate off of, we had to clean first. The porch outside was so dirty, we had to clean it before eating on the table. The bathroom towels are not fit to clean your dog, so old and worn. For the prices they charge, this house needs an extreme makeover. Wouldn't stay there again- NO WAY!

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to say that this person is just trying to get back because it was the second time I had to take some money off the deposit from someone... They broke the screen door to the upstairs, all the furniture was up side down when they checked out, kid's shoe marks on pillows, the gave chalk to their kids to paint on walls and even on chairs...cheerios were all over the house...on the day they checked out, they left a cake with icing knowing that ants will come from anywhere, also they let their kids paint with icing on the furniture and almost every window, hand prints were all over....I must say I have never seen people with no education or respect towards someone's property... They also placed the keys inside the lock box with a plastic ringer that made the lock box get stuck and we had to break it to get keys for next guest...this last thing we did not even charged for... My appliances are all new, coffee maker, microwave, mattresses, washer and dryer machines, etc, etc...towels and sheets are replaced continuously... The sleeping couches are only 2 years old and yes , we had to fix part of them (not duct tape as this lady says)...each couch is around 2,000 usd , very comfortable couches and some people have ripped them (nothing major)... I should have had covers for them since I started renting the house to prevent this... Now I have covers for them... ...tile is new, dock and house get maintenance and upgrades every year , that is why we have so many returning and satisfied customers... We do have a treadmill and a elliptical so you can be able to exercise, nothing is in the way, they have their own spaces, you will not find it weird if a healthy style life and exercise is part of your life ! On the contrary, you will appreciate it ! It is difficult to rent out a house to people you don't know, most of the times you get real nice educated people but once a year someone like this comes along !

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the lower part of Alex's rental property in early March for our first Florida Keys vacation. The home was clean, well kept and had all the basic amenities ((i.e. towels, flatware, dishes, etc.) that you would need if you wanted to eat all of your meals at the house to save money. My wife and I spent our mornings each sunrise and my daughter and I spent time each day snorkeling around the dock. As noted by others there is a binder with information about things to do in the area. If you want a wonderful place enjoy good food, drinks and music we recommend Kiki's Sandbar & Grille a short distance down the street from the house and Boondocks Grill & Draft house on Ramrod Key just under two miles from the house. We also tried and enjoyed The Square Grouper Bar & Grill on Cudjoe Key and The Island Fish Company & Tiki Bar on Marathon.

Perfect Keys Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the house-the dock made boating and lobstering very convenient, the upstairs living room and kitchen was perfect for recovering from long days on the boat. And that screened in porch on the second floor was absolutely perfect!

The owner was also easy to deal with and responsive. You can't go wrong renting this place!

A perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here with a friend for 4 nights. It was really the perfect location. Our vacations generally end up being little day trips exploring new areas. The home is perfectly situated near Key West, Marathon, and Islamorada for lovely day trips. The weather was mostly cold (although not bad compared to the snow we had escaped!) but the front porch was warm enough to enjoy thanks to trees growing around the property. The property itself was in a nice quiet area. Easy to relax. The home was very clean and the homeowner was always quick to reply if anything was needed. I would most definitely recommend staying here.

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the lower part of Alex's home and it was perfect for our family of 4. It is as described, all amenities present, clean and we were poised for a great vacation the minute we arrived. Alex is very responsive to emails and questions (and I had lots) and helpful with local information. We have two young girls and the dock was perfect for animal viewing, fishing, and just relaxing. We were close to Key west, Bahia Honda Beach (which the girls absolutely loved seeing ink squirting sea snails, stingrays, and warm tidal pools). Alex keeps a book with nearby attractions and we used it to book a sunset sail and find a local snorkel/fishing guide Captain Mike. This was the most relaxing vacation we have had in a long time! It is also walking distance to a lovely local restaurant, but still very quiet at the house, so just ideal. We hope we get to go back soon! Wouldn't stay anywhere else.
