Paradise Found!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered for spring break: grandparents, parents and tween-kids. When we arrived we had seen the pictures online but the reality was SO MUCH MORE! The property is a tropical paradise with different seating areas around the area, each more beautiful than the other. The house is open and spacious with plenty of room for everyone, even our multigenerational group. Most of our "inside" time was spent on that fabulous screened porch that opens completely into the house, even during our rainy day. We cooked "in" several nights and the kitchen had everything any cook could need, even spices. The water views were fabulous and the sunrise from my bed popped me up everyday to grab my camera! There were games, kayaks, bikes, a basketball court, and toys for tots - something for everyone (didn't even need the TVs in every room). The house was spotless with up to date appliances and wireless internet when we arrived and also stocked with plenty of towels, etc.

I would unhesitatingly recommend this house to anyone wanting to visit the keys! For us it was perfect about 15 miles from the hustle and bustle of Key West, but not a deterrent from visiting the city by car. Anyone considering a rental should also have a car since there is very little within walking distance.

A Dream Come True!

We have always wanted to rent a house in the Florida Keys and this house was PERFECT!! The house itself was clean and beautifully furnished and had everything one could want to make their stay comfortable. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch outside the living room where we could just sit and enjoy the wonderful view. It was so peaceful... just what one needs to escape a busy work schedule. And of course there is the private beach area for relaxing in the sun - heaven!

We picked Sugarloaf Key for its proximity to Key West. There is a wide variety of restaurants to pick from and of course it's a great place to explore.

The owners of this property were very accommodating and were quick to respond with any of our questions.

Needless to stay, we plan on going back next year.!

San Francisco Bay Area


  • 5 of 5

Brought the family and friends here for a week after a cruise in Miami and staying here was the definitely the highlight of our trip. The house is great and the perfect secluded beachfront getaway! The maintenance and decor in the house were top notch and the floorplan provided private bedrooms for all. We especially enjoyed cocktail hour on the private beach and watching the moonrise over the ocean later after dinner. The open floorplan kitchen and greatroom lead to a covered/screened deck for convinent patio dining and all glass sliding doors open the entire back of the house if you don't plan to use the central air conditioning (which operated well and looked brand new).

Location is close 15min drive to Keywest and 20mins up the road to some great diving shops for those like me that enjoy scuba diving Looe Key marine perserve. Also some bikes and a 2 person kayak at the property which we used to explore the reefs outside the door.

Owners are very nice, and easy to get in touch with, and were very responsive to our many questions during our planning stage. They also helped us with some suggestions on restaurants & local activites to try.

In closing, I'll definitely be making this an annual sojourn when the weather is cold here in California and begin to miss being in the warm, clear waters of Florida Keys I can't wait to get back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review! And yes, you are right, the central AC was replaced just a few months ago-all brand new, as are most of the appliances. Thank you for noticing! We are delighted that there are other Californians who love the Keys as much as we do! Come back soon!

Our Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

Your house is just beautiful!! From the views of the ocean and Florida Keys to the close proximity to Key West, we enjoyed it all. The house is beautifully appointed, and feels like home! The grill out on the deck lets the cook enjoy the ocean breeze while family sunbathes, reads on one of the several decks and patios, or fishes outside near the beach. TV in each room but we never even used it - kayaking, biking, walking, exploring the resident lobsters near the dock, or filming the visiting fishes, this house fulfilled our dream of a vacation in the Keys! Thanks so much, and we hope to come back soon!

An Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We were 9. 4 adults 5 kids. The house was an amazing match to what we needed in order to celebrate great Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends ... The house is well equipped if you would like to cook or BBQ. There is plenty of room inside and out. It is a perfect place for a great family or a group vacation for adults and kids. Not to mention the great garden and the views that are out of this world. The bonus is the owners. Very nice and attentive . Thank you Mary and Tony for letting us use your beautiful, amazing house. I am sure we will come back soon...
