Relaxing, Clean, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a very functional, clean and comfortable two-bedroom home with a almost wrap-around screened porch - a great place to enjoy breakfast or a night cap. The new landscaping sets off the house beautifully and provides quite a bit of privacy that will only improve as the vegetation grows. The pool is beautiful, matched by the wonderful view across the small bay. It is a quiet location with very few cars or boats passing by, but is close to town, shopping and restaurants. If a two-bedroom is for you, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Tranquil waterfront property tastefully appointed with extra amenities including kayaks, fishing poles, bikes, tiki hut, and pool. Beautifully landscaped with fabulous wrap-around screened porch. High quality lounge chairs & abundant beach towels - even a cooler to use at the close by Sombrero Beach. Publix & restaurants close by, also. Highly recommend!

A slice of Paradise!

My wife, son , and I spent 10 days here in early November. This was our first time visiting the Keys and we couldn't have chosen a better spot to spend it!

The house is beatiful and has lots of great features. The wrap around screened porch was perfect for enjoying a morning breakfast and an evening supper. The renovations to add a second bathroom and addiotnsl beds is well done and makes great use of the space.

We enjoyed the pool area and spent lots of time in the pool or on the splash deck. The pool is large and has a deep end making it nice for swimming or playing games. There are quite a few pool toys provided as well. The tiki hut was nice to get out of the sun and there were lots of good quality loungers.

The landscaping was beautiful and was interesting to walk around and look at. The dock was perfect for docking our boat and had lights for nighttime use. The access to the ocean was only a 10-15 minute drive down the canal.

The location at the end of a road made it extremely quiet during the day and night, which was great for sleeping.

When we come back to the Keys we will definitely stay here again.

Lovely, unique home

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My boyfriend and I stayed here the last ten days of September. We come to the Keys every year and bring our boat for diving, lobstering, and fishing. We have stayed at many homes over four years, and this was by far the best. It was difficult to leave.

The home itself is beautiful and unique with its wrap around, screened-in porch and wooden cupola. Since the owners seem to stay often, it is well-equipped and filled towels and little details you always seem to need on trips. The master bed is comfortable. There is a gas range. The cable TV offers many channels. The indoor space makes this house ideal for a couple or a family. It may be a little cramped for two couples.

The grounds are beautiful and professionally landscaped, and a pleasure to look at it. The pool has a great beach entry with umbrella, and has a chiller! The chiller is worth the stay alone. The new tiki hut provides a lot of shade.

The dock is well equipped with shower, two hoses (one at the fish cleaning station) and lights (also a bright light at the cleaning station.) The dock is very well set-up for people who bring their boat and fish. It is in a well-protected deep lagoon, about a 15-minute idle to the Ocean.

The convenient location cannot be beat! Two minute car ride to Publix/Winn Dixie/CVS/Kmart (a must if you are fishing.) It's close to everything.

The owners are very attentive and helpful and have put a lot of work into their home.

We could not stop talking about how much we loved the home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful detailed review. We hope you come back soon. We have found that when traveling with another couple there is ample room for up to six with the two master suites, one with a queen and two twin beds and their own private bath.
