Wonderful & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Linda is fabulous! It is immediately obvious Linda and Rick love this home. I loved the fully equipped kitchen! We spent most of our time outside on the back deck or on the water. My absolute favorite was the outdoor shower - pure bliss. We used the kayaks, snorkel gear & especially enjoyed the bicycles. We saw manatees in the canal along with parrot fish at the dock. Thank you so much for a lovely vacation!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Linda and Rick's cottage during Spring break. My 14 year old daughter and me loved and enjoyed everything: quiet mornings at the canal in very comfortable rocking chairs, biking, kayaks (with all great directions provided by Linda). Every night we had a special treat - hot tub while watching the stars! There is a beautiful beach 3 min away to snorkel in the daytime and watch the best sunset in the Keys in the evening. We saw lobsters, coral, beautiful sponges and amazing fish just 3 min away from the cottage! Did I mention great snorkel equipment? The house in unbelievable and you will never find a rental house like this: so beautifully decorated and everything is thought through and is of the best possible quality. When you arrive you will find chilled wine in the fridge! You will not want to leave the house, and if you like to cook - you are in paradise.

In fact, one of the signs in the house says: "paradise found" and it is really true! The yard is amazing and so private and quiet. Linda and Rick, thank you so much for sharing your lovely cottage with us. It was truly one of our best vacations ever!

We cannot wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot possibly explain in words the charm that this home has. We have 8 and 10 year olds, and we all agree this was quite possibly our favorite vacation ever. The entire grounds are meticulously thought out and cared for. The lot is very large for the Keys standards. The rear patio belongs in a magazine. It is truly gorgeous. The home is equipped unlike any rental home we have stayed in. Every dish, utensil, pan, etc. you could possibly need is there. We took full advantage of the bikes, kayaks, tennis rackets, snorkel equipment, hot tub.....the list goes on and on. We started each and every day with a kayak tour through the mangroves.

The home is certainly lovely, but it honestly does not compare to the sincere care that Linda and Rick put into our stay. Linda provided email after email with restaurant recommendations, parks/beaches to visit, best places for sunsets...and on and on. Linda told me a week would not be long enough, and she was absolutely correct. We could easily spend a month there. It is a wonderful place!

Thank you guys for an amazing vacation. You were wonderful hosts, and we will definitely be back.

Truly Enchanted!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation! We stayed for a week, but would have loved to stay longer had our schedules permitted. The house is absolutely perfect, light and airy and beautifully appointed, although in truth we spent most of our time on the lanai or out in the gardens. The gardens are landscaped in such as away as to make us feel that we constantly were discovering new and secret nooks - so much fun! Also, it was especially great to have the kayaks available. Every morning, we kayaked through Long Key park and out to the open water, and most every evening (when we weren't dining out), we strolled down the street to watch the sunsets over the gulf, then returned and grilled dinner on the deck and watched the stars come out. Linda and Rick are fabulous hosts - every detail was considered, from the decor of the house and gardens, the amenities like kayaks and bicycles, to helpful instructions and planning suggestions on activities and dining, plus it was lovely, after a long day of travel, to find a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge! Thank y'all so much! We loved our trip and can't wait to come back!

We'll be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is our new favorite Florida Keys destination! We are already planning to visit again next year. Having always stayed at hotels in the Keys - we decided to try a private cottage this year and are so glad that we did. It was peaceful, quiet and charming - a home away from home. There are so many things to do - kayaking is our new vacation pastime. You will find everything that you need here including a well equipped kitchen. All you have to do is pack your bags & enjoy!!
