Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Comfortable and charming, this newer stilt home has everything you could

want for a vacation for just the two of you, a few friends, or the

whole family!

Fantastic waterfront open canal views. Located on a

60'wide canal, you can bring your powerboat, jet ski, kayak, or what

have you, and dock it right in front in our canal. (We have 2 kayaks

at our unit available for guests free of charge). Note - There is only 17' of dockspace in front of our home so if your boat is larger thatn that you will have to use the on-site marina boat ramp to take the boat in and out of the water each time you use it. There is no cost for the use of the boat ramp, which is only a 2 minute walk from our home)

The house has two bedrooms (the master bedroom with a Sealy pillowtop queen bed, the second bedroom with a full-sized queen bed with a single bunk overtop), two full bathrooms, as well as a pull-out queen sleeper in the living room.

It is fully stocked with all linens and towels, has dishwasher,

microwave, fridge with icemaker, blender, coffee maker, toaster, new full-sized

stackable washer and drier, all utensils and dishes, and a gas bar-b-que.

Also has central air and heat, 40' widescreen tv with 130 channels. Wireless high speed internet is available inside the home and is included. Brand new comfortable living room furniture. Freshly painted throughout. New bedroom flooring.

Gorgeous new deck overlooking the water with patio furniture where you can sit and enjoy the view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home in Venture Out! We loved that you are close to Key West for a night on the town, but far enough away in a safe gated community to be quiet at night when we want quiet! The pool and hot tub are both wonderful, and so close to the unit. Our favorite thing to do is to sit up on the deck for happy hour in the evening or for coffee in the morning, and look at the wonderful openwater view off the deck overlooking the ocean. We also loved the kayaks you provide for your guest to use at no charge. Thanks so much for letting us rent your home! We will be back next year!

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home because it was close to key west. It was just perfect! The resort had a very nice pool, a place in the ocean to swim, tennis courts and a small store and was on a canal that lead to the ocean. It was very secure, clean and quite. I had occasion to talk to a neighbor and her friends and they were very helpful and friendly. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. I really can't say enough good things!

Great option for fishing the Keys

We opted to stay in this small condo instead of the usual motel. It was a great improvement as it gave us a common area to hang out during the downtime. The porch is great with a great view.

Good choice for parties of 4 or less.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time!! The fantastic view is one of the best features of our home! If you are an early bird like me, watching the sunrise off the deck while drinking my coffee is one of the best, most relaxing times of the day for me. It can be absolutely stunning.

Needs new beds! Most uncomfortable for the price!

  • 2 of 5
I have just returned from this property, and had my first good nights sleep in 5 days! It is a lovely house and Venture Out has great amenities, unfortunately the house is seriously let down by the sleeping accommodations. At the price we paid for a four night stay, I would expect a decent bed. If this was a hotel I would have demanded a new room! The guest bed is claustrophobic, noisy and very uncomfortable. So much so, that my husband even tried to sleep in the upper bunk! The second night, we tried the equally uncomfortable pull out couch. Mattress is so thin I felt every spring. The next 2 nights were spent on the couches! The broken blinds and lack of air in the guest room, (it only drips large amounts of condensation) just add to the lack of comfort. Both bedrooms have a rather funky smell, we later realized that was probably from the flooring, maybe new? The couple we travelled with said the master bed was not great, but just okay. As I had read all the reviews, I made the comment prior to booking that the negatives were about the beds. As those comments were a year ago, I would have thought they would have been resolved. As they have not, I would not recommend this property as is. Shame, because a few dollars invested would increase the value to match the cost of rental. I don't feel we got our money's worth. There is far too much else available in the same park to settle for the accommodations we had. We looked at other properties during our stay and will enquire about those again next year. By the way, some sharp knives would not go amiss!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your comments. The unfortunate thing about beds is that what is comfortable for one person, is not comfortable for the next, as everyone likes different mattresses. The master bedroom has a pillow top Sealy mattress that is less than 2 years old. For the bed in the second bedroom, we just purchased less than 6 months ago a pillow top mattress cover, which we were told was very nice. It is however possible that it was too nice, and may have been removed by a guest or by someone else. This we will check into, and if it appears the pillow top mattress cover will not stay in place, we will have to do something else. I have slept in the second bedroom many times myself, and find it comfortable. Our adult daughter also slept on it for 10 days in January, and did not find it uncomfortable. As for the queen sofa bed, it is less than a year old. I have not yet myself ever slept in any pull-out bed anywhere that I would call very comfortable. It is the nature of hide-a-beds. A thicker mattress simply will not fold up into the couch.

We were just at our home in January, and there was nothing wrong at all with the air flow anywhere in the home, including the spare bedroom, and at that time there were no broken blinds. I have asked our property manager to check this out and to make any necessary repairs.

There is brand new flooring in both bedrooms, installed in January, so that might be what was had a slight "new flooring" aroma to it. This we did not notice ourselves when we were there, but some people are more sensitive to aromas. For the knives, there is an easy-to -use knife sharpener in the kitchen drawer. (Or there was in January). I will also have our property manager check on this, and purchase another one if it has gone astray.

Thank-you again for your comments!

nice place

  • 4 of 5
House was nice as was the community and the pool. Canal can get full of sea weed which discouraged us from using kayaks. Dishwasher didn't work while we were there, but was supposed to be fixed. Overall it is a nice place and area. About 40 min to Key West attractions. Not a lot to do in immediate area, but you are away from the crowds also.

As good as the picture shows!

  • 5 of 5
The view from the deck is of the beautiful water. There was plenty to do without even visiting the Keys. Our family kayaked with the two kayaks on the rental property and really enjoyed it. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and playing tennis on the courts. Everything was clean and orderly. The people we talked to were helpful. If you want a place for your family to stay, it's the perfect spot.
We spent our days in Key West going on a bike tour, parasailing, jet skiing, banana boating, and snorkelling off the reef. We also visited the art museum and light house museum. There are great restaurants to visit to eat the freshest fish and shrimp you've ever tasted. I would certainly recommend this place to friends and family.

We were extremely pleased with our overall stay. The home is wonderful and the balcony faces the morning sunrise. It is also located in a large gated community and my wife and I enjoyed our morning walks. In addition, everybody we met were very friendly. Also, the Condo is centrally located to a small shopping mall that has a large Grocery Store. We also enjoyed the Kayaks and took them out on the bay several times. Only suggestions, the carpet in both the bedrooms are soiled and need replaced. Also, we stayed with another couple and they slept in the second bedroom and said their bed was not very comfortable. Being retired military, I have traveled all over the world and this was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable trips that my wife and I have ever experienced and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that you had a wonderful, relaxing time! We actually did replace the bedroom carpets with new flooring when we came down last, as the beige carpets were very difficult to keep clean. There are now lovely wood-toned floors in both bedrooms.
