Wonderful week in paradise
I cant choose! The views, the wildlife, the house, the Keys themselves. All were amazing!
When we arrived we were greeted by numerous iguanas and an amazing view of the canal and bay. Jackie, the owner, had ice cold local beer waiting for us in the frig (we had a 12 hr drive.) We spent the week exploring by kayak, by boat and by car. Jackie had everything: restaurants, shopping, outfitters, guides, etc available for us to choose from. The house, built in the 40's, was great. I loved the exposed ceiling beams, the original floors and windows. It was comfortable and had more than we needed. (We never turned the TV on!) All in all it was a fabulous time spent with my husband.
Absolutely loved this place!!!
A beautiful house and the scenery was out of this world!! I will be back!!
Perfect!....Just perfect! A little piece of paradise!
We have just spent an amazing August in this wonderful paradise. Having stayed here before we couldn't wait to return and found the property is even better due to further upgrades. Jackie is a superb host and could not have been more welcoming and attentive in making our stay the best it could be - Thankyou Jackie! It means so much!
Believe all the comments posted on this review site - it really is that great!. The house is so well positioned on the bayside, well stocked, very clean and perfect for anyone wanting a traditional Keys break. We really look forward to returning at the first opportunity!
Thank you so much Paul for taking the time to write review. Hope you guys stay with us again next time you visit the Keys you are wonderful guests!
Take care :)
Believe the other reviews. The property was just as described. The home was clean, comfortable and the location was great. Having my boat right outside the door was a big plus for me. I was fishing the flats in minutes and the seas were calm allowing me to fish outside on the reefs for yellowtail & mangrove snapper. Fishing every day made me too tired to cook (darn) so I ate out every night. I had the best snapper dish at Mad Dog's. I'm already checking my calendar for a return trip. You'll love it too...
Thanks so much Curtiss for your summer time month with us!! We enjoyed your visit and meeting you. We hope you visit again soon ! Summers are great in the Keys for fishing and diving too :) Take care and thanks again.
5 Star - Cottage - Paradise on the Bay
We rate this a 5 star. We stayed a month and loved every minute of it. We enjoyed the peaceful mornings on "the dock by the bay", can you hear the music??? Then being able to kayak to Lorelei at night for the live music was a surprising treat. The bay is our favorite side of the keys. An occasional manatee would swim by, making our viewing of them magical. They are wild wonderful creatures and to be able to see one is so special. They are ambassadors of the sea. Thank you Jackie and Tim for making our stay amazing, magical and wonderful.
Thanks Deb and Dave, you two are 5 star guests!! We loved having you visit and look forward to having you for the month of April next year! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! You guys are awesome. Take care :)
Waterfront Cottage Great Rates
We love staying at the cottage due to its peaceful setting of coconut palms, tropical plants, a large oak tree, and plenty of space to spread out. Don’t be surprised to see iguanas, a raccoon, squirrels, and water birds lounging around the property as you sip a drink on the dock and watch for manatees that sometimes visit in the canal.
Rooms are an ample size with a nice walk-in closet off the master bedroom. The king size bed is super comfortable and there’s the convenience of a desk in the master bedroom. As comfy as the inside is, we are drawn more often to the outside area and the rustle of the coconut palms. What a great place to read a book!
If you want the supreme place to relax and enjoy the “Old Florida” lifestyle, instead of a high-rise condo, this is the place for you! The owners go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable. You hardly need a car, except to pick up groceries since the cottage is a short walk to the Lorelei, a bay-side waterfront restaurant with great seafood, plenty of outdoor seating areas, live music, and a sunset celebration every night. Other restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. With just a call, you can rent a kayak or paddle board and have it delivered. If you rent or bring your own boat, there is a very large dock area to keep it secure.
We’ve rented here multiple times and dream about it before our next chance to stay. We highly recommend it!
