About Inga Cabral

Joe and I both grew up on the east coast always salt water fishing. I'm from Long Island and He is from Connecticut. I was swimming in salt water before before I could walk and regularly took our boat across the sound for lunch in CT before I could drive a car. This little house is a dream property for us - we love it, and we hope you do to

Why Inga Cabral chose Sands

We fell in Love with Big Pine Key the First time we stayed. Our Home is close enough to Key West but near the BEST Fishing and Diving around. Its a quiet area that is safe and feels like home right away.

What makes this House unique

The canal access is amazing easy to use and so fisherman friendly. The fish cleaning station is handy as well as the outdoor shower and boat wash down capabilities. Great trailer parking to make fishing the hot spots that abound in the area easy as well.

                                                                      William N.

                                                                      We stayed here a month. Was not as advertised. Hot tub was empty and broken. Oven did not work. Roof and window leaked. Channel was closed all month. Floor had a foul smelling water leaking up through it, whenever we ran the A/C. When going barefoot, our feet were black. So I spent the first day cleaning. Had to even wash our towels and change our linens. We asked the owners for a partial refund, due to these problems. I spoke to them on the phone, then requested a refund by letter. We have never heard back from them. We couldn't afford to walk away from 1 months paid rent, so we were stuck. Not a pleasant stay.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      I'm sure you have received my Check back to you to cover any inconvenience. I'm so very sorry the weather was horrible for your stay. The 70 mile an hour winds and torrential rain come with paradise. We had never had any of these issues prior to this storm. I tried to send a repairman in to fix all the damage to the house immediately but you told me you would rather have not been interrupted. We did insist on having someone come and fix the most immediate damage from the storms causing the leaks.

                                                                      The website clearly states the hot tub isn't available with the rental. I do apologize for the canal work not being completed prior to your stay but it was completely out of our control as the workers ran much past the proposed deadline and the County was in charge.

                                                                      We are in the process of completely repairing the damage now. I sent you a short note in response via mail in response once we got back down here to work on the house at the end of last week. Please call me directly if you have any questions. 208 582 1886 Inga.

                                                                      I stayed at "Angler's Retreat" from 8/3 - 8/10/2013 and was completely satisfied. I reserved at the last minute during the week prior to my arrival. The owner was very accessible and provided good communication regarding reservation and check-in/check-out instruction and details. The property was as described on the phone and via the online pictures. If anything, the pictures do not do the property justice. Being a single-wide mobile home, it was not extravagant, but was clean, well-kept, well equipped, well-maintained and nicely decorated. The screen porch with table and chairs is nice (especially in the Summer) and even included a stand-up freezer for my ice and bait. The Jacuzzi was clean and in good working order. The seawall is in good shape and worked great for my 25' center console (a boat too much bigger may start to be a tight squeeze, however..). My wife and I and two boys (age 7 & 9)were comfortable and had a great time. Lots of perks like plenty of garbage cans, plenty of water hoses, a fish-cleaning station, a covered carport, the two bicycles (which we never used), and the immaculate yard only added to our enjoyment. I would recommend Angler's Retreat to anyone and very well may go back myself... Regards, Court

This house is clean and well equipped with everything you'll need to make it your home away from home. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly so you can have a peaceful night's sleep.

                                                                      Besides the property itself, Don and Selah provided outstanding customer service. They left us a little welcome gift which came in very handy. They also made sure the house was spotless when we arrived and if that wan't enough, they provided great suggestions on where to eat both in Big Pine and Key West. If you're looking for an emmaculate property, conveniently situated between Marathon and Key West with hospitality hosts then I suggest you look at the Angler's Retreat.
