This house was perfect for our family vacation! We had a total of 10 people in our party that traveled from Massachusetts, Pennsylvania & South Florida to celebrate Christmas together. The owners were very friendly & helpful in answering all of our questions concerning the property & surrounding area. The house was clean, spacious, beautifully decorated & the kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need while on vacation. We spent a lot of our time on the fabulous screened balcony overlooking the pool & ocean! Our family, especially the children, enjoyed spending time swimming in the pool, as well as fishing, snorkeling & kayaking right off the dock – it was so relaxing! Being in Cudjoe Key, we naturally visited Key West as well as many local shops & restaurants along Overseas Highway from Key West to Big Pine Key. I highly recommend this home and count the days until we can visit again!
Overall, we had an amazing time. The Royal Keys House is spacious and allowed the 5 adults plenty of room to not feel crowded. The kitchen was spacious and allowed multiple people to comfortably work together in the space. We had our breakfasts and most lunches in the house; venturing out for dinners. The screened in deck was perfect for enjoying these meals together. There are a number of staples available in the cupboards and refrigerator so, like another writer noted, check what is there prior to going to the grocery store. The pool was WONDERFUL with some fun lights that added to the atmosphere when the sun went down. The location of the house was perfect to do lots of exploring around the area. It is a convenient location to get a balance between the party town of Key West and the more laid back areas of the Keys. There is a great walking/ biking path across the street and some really nice restaurants in the area. There were bikes available for our use and kayaks too. In addition to trips to Key West, we made use of the boat and went to Bahia Honda State Park as part of our week.
The main con of this site is that, while there are some great upgrades, there are parts of the house that are a bit dated and in need of upkeep. Additionally, while at first glance the house appeared quite clean upon our arrival, it was hard to ignore debris in the showers, a filled ashtray on the porch, bottle caps that were scattered about the house and grounds that were in need of some sprucing and cleaning up. I understand that the hosts may not have been able to see the work of the housekeeper prior to our arrival as it appears there was a group in the house immediately prior to us. We reminded ourselves that this is not meant to be a 5 star hotel and is priced accordingly.
We did return to Michigan happy with our experience and ready to jump into the holiday season.
This place was great. Everything we needed right there. Very comfortable and clean. The owners where awesome, just a phone call away if we had any questions. We will be back next year for sure!!!!!!
This house was perfect for our family vacation! The house was amazing and there was more than enough room for all 8 of us and plenty to do. I would highly recommend renting the boat and jet ski's, all of our kids loved both and it enabled us to cruise the shoreline and enjoy the sites. We also went on an afternoon fishing trip to the lighthouse, not only did we catch a lot of fish, we also saw a couple of nurse sharks and a bunch of turtle's, what a thrill! I would also suggest that you check out the local beaches which were beautiful! Our boys spent a ton of time in the pool while we enjoyed the view from the hot tub! The owners were incrediblely hospitable we truly felt at home and can't wait to go back!
Everyone of our nine family members are exhausted leaving The Royal Keys House this morning. We took full advantage of the pool playing hours of volleyball, basketball and just floating and sunbathing. Hours were spent fishing, playing beer pong on the back deck and exploring the bay with jet skis.
The villa was clean and very comfortable for our group, affording plenty of space to get-away from each other while also allowing for some epic meals as a group.
We also appreciated the comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, and nautical decor. It was great to have plenty of pool and bath towels and the ability to freshen them throughout the stay using the very convenient washer/dryer just off the kitchen.
The kitchen is fully outfitted and I can't think that we every wanted for anything that wasn't right at our finger tips.
For those raining days and maybe younger family members, the villa is fully outfitted with large screen TV's and an over whelming number of programming to choose from.
Cudjoe Bay is just a short drive from Key West but more importantly, an even shorter drive to groceries and other necessities.
I suggest that you "check-in" to the villa prior to driving back north to the Winn Dixie....you'll find about 2000 coffee filters, garbage bags and several unopened salt and pepper shakers left behind from previous guests. :)
Fred the landlord did an great job of communicating with us both prior to and during our stay.
In summary, it was less than 24 hours after we arrived that my family began to ask me when we could return.
From the 1st turn into drive for The Royal Keyes Home....you feel your stress, and worry stay behind you on the road. Upon entering this house, you will be blown away, with every bedroom, bath, and kitchen detail.
Fred & Alva are very welcoming, with info on great Fishing Spots, to restaurants to try.
Did I mention Heated Swimming Pool!! Beautiful resort style seating, enough to accommodate everyone in comfort...while the Volleyball is heated, and Fun!
BBQ on the upper deck, aside a full length screened in porch overlooking, pool, dock, boat, and Ocean.
We were able to stay, during Mini-Lobster Season. .. let's just say, We Came And Conquered! 20 keepers 1st day out. All thx to Fred's advice, great boat, and Loran guidance system.
Don't miss this opportunity to rent, an awesome home, with possible boat, and jetski's too!!
We will return... Thank You for opening your home to us.
This location is approximately 25 mile away form the fun and festivities of Key West. Duval Street all the way to the Key West Bord walk, plenty of fine Dinning, shopping and Playing (The Famous Key West).
