Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your house. It was beautiful and had everything we needed to cook meals, etc. The house was in a great location.

I will write a review and add some suggestions of places to visit for the next traveler. I will have to go back through our photos to find the names of the locations we visited.

Thank you for sharing your house.

Fantastic Vacation Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I retired at the end of 2015 and, to celebrate, my wife and I decided to rent a house in the Florida Keys. We had a wonderful time staying at this home for more than a month. The house was very clean and is accurately depicted by the photos on the website. Virginia, the owner, was very responsive and made the entire process easy for us. A small loose-leaf notebook in the kitchen contained all of the information we needed to enjoy the home. The home is conveniently located with supermarkets within just a few minutes' drive. The elevator came in very handy, especially for heavy suitcases.

The home was large enough to accommodate guests. The location of the home in Key Largo was convenient for our guests who flew in to either Miami or Ft. Lauderdale.

We made good use of the well-stocked kitchen, the laundry room, the outdoor bbq, the hot tub and the many balconies. The views from the balconies, the canal from the rear and the bay from the front, were fantastic. The master suite, which took up the entire top floor, was extremely spacious. The other two bedrooms were also very comfortable. Both bathrooms were very nice. The wifi worked very well, as did the two large televisions in the living area and master bedroom. The appliances were all modern and in good operating condition.

Key Largo made a very nice home base. We found many good restaurants. I took several long rides on one of the bicycles at the house. John Pennecamp State Park is within walking distance. We went on a glass-bottom boat excursion out to one of the reefs and also rented kayaks at the Park. The other Keys also have much to offer and we took good advantage of them. We made two day trips to Key West and never tired of the views of the beautiful aqua-blue water on our many excursions between Key Largo and points south. We also enjoyed day trips out of the Keys to Everglades National Park and the beautiful Fairchild Botanic Garden in Coral Gables. We rented a pontoon boat one day from a local establishment and were able to dock at the house for a bathroom break.

We feel very fortunate to have found such a nice house. We would awaken each morning to another day in paradise. We never met Virginia personally but, as was noted above, she made everything very easy. Check-in was a breeze and there were very brief and easy to follow directions for check-out. All in all, we felt very much at home in this house and would certainly recommend it to others without any reservation.

Everything one could ask for.....and more!

  • 5 of 5

Virginia is a very gracious host and let us stay at her very well appointed home in a great location. She provided everything one could ask for...and more. The kitchen had everything a good cook could ask for and Virginia was kind enough to provide a brand new grill for the yummy fresh fish and spiny lobster sold at the fruit and produce market 1.9 miles away. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful the sunrises and sunsets from the multiple decks. Our party capped off every night with a soothing soak in the hot tub. Lots to do and see and the snorkeling, jet skiing, and fishing in this area are excellent. Lots of good restaurants abound. This place is truly paradise.

Very comfortable, roomy, and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the house, the dock and the surrounding Key Largo area very much. The website photos provide an accurate picture of the property. We have no complaints, and plan on returning next year.

Accessable for handicaped persons!!!Beautiful clean home...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the beauty of the home and elevator.My wife is a double amputee and could easily access all floors with ease.Virginia was wonderful and accommodating.We had the best vacation in our lives in this home where everything worked fine and all the amenities were there.I would highly recommend this home to anyone who needs a real great vacation or even a peaceful getaway.Everything you need is right around the corner(Publix,Gas,Restaurants,John Pennekamp park,and even a barber shop.Plus sitting on the porches at night watching the sun go down was breathtaking.I would love to stay again but due to popularity it going to be a while.Once again I would like to personally thank Virginia for being such a kind hearted friend....

This is the House to Rent in Key Largo

  • 5 of 5

First and Foremost this is a very nice home. We rented it for the month of December 2014. We will come back again.

Pros:

1. The Owners are wonderful people and very helpful. They gave us a lot of information about the area and the restaurants. 2. The home is beautiful and well decorated 3. The beds are very comfortable 4. The home has an elevator which makes it easy to move large bags up to the living areas 5. The home is very centrally located. You can walk to John Pennkamp Marine Park; you are within 3 miles of all the best restaurants in the upper keys. 6. For those of us who are DIVERS - this home is great with plenty of room to rinse and dry your gear. AND you are only 15 minutes from virtually all of the dive boats. 7. Huge BBQ with plenty of work space for preparing food. 8. The Kitchen is beautiful. 9. Great Patio area for dining 10. Lots of balconies for just relaxing and watching the sunrise or sunset. At Christmas you can sit on the upper balcony and watch the Key Largo Boat Parade - one of the best seats in the area. On New Year’s Eve we watched the Key Largo Fireworks! 11. The area is very safe and great for walking your dog and just taking a morning or evening stroll. (Across the canal is a Monroe County Sheriff). 12.Master Bedroom is huge - covering the entire top floor. 13. Excellent Internet Connectivity (for those of us who have to work during vacation). 14. Well maintained 8 person hot tub. 15. The Air Conditioners work very well, although we opened the doors on either side of the house a lot to just enjoy the breeze.

Cons:

1. Like any home there is some wear and tear. The outside furniture and decorations have experienced the usual UV damage from the sun. 2. The kitchen is beautiful, but a little under equipped. If you intend to do some serious cooking - bring a professional set of knives and maybe your favorite pot and pan. 3. The kitchen island is beautiful but the top is made of a waved glass which makes it impossible for anything to lay flat (making cookies, cutting anything, carving, etc). 4. Living room is a little small – you can seat 4 or 5 comfortably but no more. Movie night might be challenging.

You should rent this place - it is one of the best in the area.

Owner's Response: Bill,thank you for your review! Yes the glass island top is gorgeous,I have never had a problem with placing anything on it but I guess its what you place,the outdoor furniture is "keystone" as to avoid the salt damage to ANYTHING outdoors. I had left plenty of great pans,pots,colander,mostly Caphalon but yes the Knife set for cooking needs replacing ,I will buy a better set. The area for watching TV fits 5 ,but you can always move the sofa where the kitchen table is and you have room for 8. I am happy that some things were brought to my attention as I want to make all my guests comfortable ! Thank you for being my guest and I welcome you back anytime. All my best to you !!!
