About Jim

Owners, Jim, Kevin their boxers Bo and Belle, moved to Key West from Madison, Wisconsin in 2011. The ability to work remotely allowed us to escape the cold Wisconsin winters.

Jim purchased this house in 2011

Why Jim chose Key West

After vacationing in Key West and loving to be able to walk everywhere, the hunt began for a house in Key West. Sunshine Daydream had a great location, 1/2 block off of Duval, close enough to the action, but yet on the quiet end of the island and great outdoor space. We made it our primary residence until 2014. It is only as of recent that we converted it to vacation rental to be able to share the home and experience of Key West with others.

We are fortunate to only live a couple blocks away and can be reached as needed. We are always happy to point people in the right direction and give recommendations to our favorite bars, restaurants and points of interest on the island.

What makes this house unique

Of all things about the house, we love the front porch. It is a great place for a glass of wine and to people watch (it is also Bo's favorite as well). Our second favorite would be the living space that opens up to the bamboo fenced backyard and pool.

Super clean and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the cleanest and most well kept rental I have ever enjoyed. Nothing is missed. The fresh smelling sheets and bedding, to the perfectly kept kitchen and appliances; not a spec anywhere. It has great furniture for the rare times we were forced inside by the downpour. The ice maker was fast, the blender great, the coffee maker wonderful. We will be back and hope it's available.

Property was lovely and the splash pool made all the difference.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jim's and Kevin's home was lovely. Great air conditioning and lots of ceiling fans to keep you nice and cool when it's time to be out of the sun. The splash pool was perfect for relaxing or taking a quick dip after being out a few hours. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, plates and so on. The location was also perfect as it was near Duval street (the quieter side).

We loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful and perfect in every way! The beds were comfortable, plenty of towels, stocked kitchen (take some, leave some!), beach chairs and cooler. The beach is within walking distance, and a lot of great restaurants! We were so happy with our vacation, and definitely coming back here!

Looks Exactly Like The Pictures

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 adult children and I were lucky enough to stay at the Sunshine Daydream house. The house was beautiful and very well kept. Great open floor plan, beautiful backyard and a great pool for taking a dip in. We were very close to Duval, everything was in walking distance. We had the pleasure of meeting Jim, Kevin, Bo and Belle. The boxers were a dead giveaway!! Given the chance, we would defiantly rent the house again.
