The booking and reservation process was simple and Gigi was quick to respond to emails and questions. We stayed in Villa Vanessa for a week in Mid March and had a great time. We stayed in the lower unit and it was certainly comfortable for two adults with one feathered and one hairy kid. There was nothing in the kitchen that we lacked and there was plenty of parking. Everything in the lower unit was in new, well maintained and in working condition. The canal had minimal traffic, there was great dockage and it's location provided great access to Snake Creek, where you could head to the Atlantic or the Gulf for fishing, diving and just cruising! We also found it great to scoot up the creek onto the Gulf to watch sunset. Of course it location near Tavernier/Islamorada provided access to lots of great restaurants, stores, shopping as well as bait and tackle.

We are heading back for another week in May and bringing two additional human friends and will be staying upstairs. I am confident the upstairs will be a great as the first floor unit was. We are looking forward to our trip back.

By the way, the guy next door (Biggs) is Fishing Charter Captain who will provide you plenty of fishing advice if you ask. If you are so inclined he can also provide you a day on the water catching your share of the oceans bounty!

Perfect keys home

  • 5 of 5

We rented for the week after Christmas. The booking process was flawless. Everything was easy for us on arrival and the house was just absolutely wonderful.the house has everything you could need and was spotless. We had 7 adults and everyone was more than comfortable.The balconies were great for watching the iguanas and nice to have coffee in the morning and drinks at night. We brought our boat and their are 2 options to put in. Harry Harris park about 2 miles to the north on the ocean side and founders park about 4 miles south on the bayside. We used both due to the weather and wind. Both are close. You can access the ocean easily from the property and getting to bayside is a bit slow because of tavernier creek wake limits but still ok. We brought our small pet who just loved all the cool tile. The only con to the house is you can hear the traffic from us 1 .however can't see it thankfully due to trees across the canal. All the other pluses far out way this one con. The owner was great and we would definitely stay here again.we had a fabulous vacation.

Extremely clean & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Gigi, the owner, was so helpful! The house is on an up and coming street with new houses and trailers. We met several of the neighbors, who were walking their dogs, and thought the dogs were delightful... the neighbors were great, too! My husband was impressed with the docking area for our boat. The location was super -- right down the street from grocery stores, restaurants and shopping :) The 3rd floor sunning deck was an added plus. My husband & I stayed in the private apartment on the first floor. It was very nicely furnished, roomy, quiet and clean. We'll definitely plan a return visit.

Your home was Excellent for our lobstering needs! We got in late on Saturday and parked our boat (on the trailer) under the carport! No worries about where to park the trailer. The upstairs was perfect and by renting the downstairs apartment we were able to freeze our lobster before transporting them home. The House was clean and smelled good. (nonsmoking) There was plenty of chairs and tables for outdoor eating. The grill was perfect even though we only used it once. I guess my only complaint if you can call it that was the hose by the dock kept crimping-but that was something I can work with easily. We look forward to staying again at your home next year.
