Everything I hoped for and more
I've vacationed in the Keys several times over the last ten years and so, I had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for when I found the listing for Sunset Villas. In particular, I wanted a place where I could snorkel and catch fish without leaving the property. Sunset Villas fulfilled those expectations and more. I caught snapper and tarpon every day, all within 100 feet of the door of the apartment! While snorkeling there, I saw lobster, a sea turtle, a Cushion sea star, and several species of fish, including Gray Angelfish, Spadefish, Parrotfish, Cardinalfish, and a grouper. I also saw a manatee from the dock on three days of my five-day visit. And in the evenings, I was treated to beautiful sunsets while eating fresh fish in front of the apartment.
The apartment was up-to-date, well appointed, very clean, and comfortable. The bed was especially comfortable and I slept very well there.
Bill, the owner, was extremely cordial. He took me on a leisurely tour of the property when I checked in and, during my stay, he offered a few recommendations on things to do and places to eat. He also shared several fishing tips and even netted some bait for me one morning!
Sunset Villas is a great place to stay and I'm really looking forward to returning.
So glad you had such a great stay and we look forward to your return! Best, Bill and Katrina

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Bill & Katrina were terrific hosts. They made sure we had anything we needed. We brought our boat & we loved that we could launch & keep it right there. We look forward to our next stay!
