We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! There is absolutely nothing I would change or suggest for this property. The place is immaculate and so welcoming and comfortable. Bill and Katrina are incredibly friendly and helpful in suggesting places to check out. We loved it here and hope to return again as soon as we can!!
Beautiful property with centralized location
Great stay! Bill & Katrina were wonderful. The property was clean and well cared for with an amazing view. The location was perfect to see all of the Keys.
Vacation in Conch Key
We could not have been more impressed with Sunset Villas... The experience was five stars from day 1 to day 7.
We looked forward to our stay for months and we weren't disappointed. The location - in between Islamorada & Marathon - was very convenient. Easy drive down to Key West. The unit was clean & cool, the A/C does a good job & that's important in south FL. We really enjoyed the fishing off the dock. There's tarpon & snapper every night & plenty of bait to attract them. The property is really quaint & there's plenty of places to enjoy the epic sunsets. The owners were very friendly & helpful. I personally loved hanging out with their Lab, Cuda! Having the boat ramp right there & the boat docked right outside our door made it so easy to just get in it & go. It's the only way to go if you're bringing your boat. We had a great time.
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
