on the Queen bed in the bedroom, two on the Queen sofabed in the lounge and there are two Sofa beds in the Florida Room. It is a dry lot with lovely sea-views & breeze LOCATED @ Lot# 537 Venture Out 701 Spanish Main Drive, Cudjoe Key fl33042.

Unit has Central A/C & heat. There are Barbeque facilities and a 'suntrap' picnic area outside at the back, sundeck to the front with lovely views over the sea to the U.S.1 and looking out to the East the Atlantic and deep blue sea.

I love to sit on the sun deck,with a beer,and watch the fishing boats go by, Pelicans and Osprey cruise overhead and the White Herons stalking fish on the reef just off shore.

At night you can sit in the breeze and watch the moon rise, shimmering on the sea, the International Space Station slipping quietly across the sky and if you look for a few minutes up to space the shooting stars are just beautiful,PARADISE.

Truly Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
First, let me say that we have been vacationing in the Keys every year for 14 years now and have pretty much seen what the options are when it comes to places to stay. We have been renting this beautiful little oasis every year since we found it, except for one year when we made the mistake of waiting to late to book. Don't make that mistake. We have already booked for next year!
If you have never been to the Florida Keys, specifically the Lower Keys, it is difficult to explain how special the place really is. It is made more so by staying in a place as wonderful and homey as this piece of paradise. The first sight you see when walking out the door in the morning is the Atlantic Ocean which can be enjoyed either outside or in since there is a wonderful Florida room (a glass-enclosed porch for those of us who do not live in Florida) from which you can enjoy the view. You have all of the comforts of home and the luxuries provided by being in a vacation wonderland all in the same place. There is a large pool area inside the gated community as well as close proximity to several excellent dive shops within a ten minute drive (for those of us who prefer a much larger pool). Also within that 10 minute time window there are several of the best restaurants, especially for seafood, you are likely to find anywhere! You have access to a boat launch, laundry and store as well. It is less than half an hour to Key West so you have access to all sorts of activities, both day and evening, as well as outstanding dining options.
The condo itself has plenty of room, a microwave, stove, full-size refrigerator and whatever else you might need to dine on your daily catch or, in our case, our daily leftovers. It has central air that works well and a windows unit in case you need it. There are plenty of dishes and utensils as well as a comfortable bed in which to recover from whatever outdoor activities you enjoy during the day.
Steve is always wonderful to work with and will do whatever he can to insure you have a carefree vacation. The fact that we have been staying here every year for over a decade should tell you how much we love it. You will too.

Owner's Response: Hi "R"just want to say there's something comforting about your name being on the calendar every year,i know you will turn up no fuss, no bother, have a good time leave and come again.
I didn't know you had such talent with the written word, it's better than a Thos.Cook Brochure!!!! And Thank You.
By the way, can't resist this, i noticed that the bed get's praise again ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS after the one and only bad comment by Ms. High Maintenance, still NO IDEA where that came from.
And resuming still on a serious note, the A/C unit was completely renewed in November13 after 13 yrs. Of good service from the old one, the only thing i won't ever re new is that view, me and my 24 friends, all called Budwieser,will be be back on the sun deck in November watching the Heron fishing on the reef,the Osprey flying over head calling it's mate telling them he has a fish,squadrons of pelicans cruising over head, the fishing boats zipping across the bay,the meteor showers at night and the International Space Station quietly slipping across the star spangled night sky as i open another friend and drink a toast to THE FLORIDA KEYS.
By the way when i'm there i like watching Top Gear.
Thank you again Steve.

Great keys get away

  • 5 of 5
From the very beginning the owner was fabulous to work with. Very fast responses and was so helpful with the questions we had. The rental process was easy. The home itself was exactly what we expected. Loved that the freezer has an ice maker. Many of the units don't have one. 8th the keys it's a necessity. The bed in the master is amazingly comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals and the ac is super cold! I've stayed in venture out many times and this unit is a keeper. I've already booked this unit for 2 weeks next summer.

Great Little Place, Great Price and Great Owner

  • 5 of 5
I am a resident of Ft. Lauderdale and my wife and I love visiting the keys for a quiet weekend getaway. When I contacted the owner Steve, he was very friendly, made it easy to work out the details of the rental and the price was great. The home is very clean, has all the amenities you need, the bed for me was very comfortable and the community and its facilities were excellent and also very quiet. We love going to Bahia Honda State Park for the beach just to the north and its just a short drive to Key West to the south. Overall we had a very nice time and will definitely return in the future. If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the place. If you are looking to party, Key West is a few miles south. If you are looking for a great beach in the keys, Bahia Honda is just a few miles north. We also brought our two dogs. Very pet friendly park. Thanks Steve!

Owner's Response: Hi and thank you for the cool review.Again i couldn't have put it better myself
I don't know where the Angel comment about the bed came from ,it was a real shock, but Iam relieved someone has offered support for the bed as good as the support given by the bed!!!!!!!I think I can put that one to bed now and rest easy, by the way did I mention the BED?
I have been going down to the Keys for 16yrs. now and I never tire of it and it's wonderful every year.
Thanks Again.
Steve.

Great place for the price

  • 3 of 5
The owner is very nice and easy to work with, and answered all of the questions I had fast. We were able to check in early which was very nice and helpful. The house is nice but could use a little TLC. Mainly in the kitchen, there are lots and lots of dishes just scattered throughout the cabinets, a lot of them had been used a lot and probably should be tossed away. My husband and I had a horrible time sleeping on the bed in the master bedroom cause it was very hard and uncomfortable. We took all the comforters we could find and put them all on the bed to soften it up some.

Overall, this is a nice quiet place to stay, The pool and hot tub are nice and the little grocery store is convenient. The view from the house is great!

This was my husband and I's first time staying in the Florida Keys so we were not sure what to expect. Cudjoe Key is very quiet and laid back. Perfect for older couples or families wanting to be away from the busy-ness of Key West, and away from beaches...

Owner's Response: Well, in October 11 i was there someone had re stocked the plates ,nice of them, there was about 20 of them so plenty to go at & mostly new , I will check in October 12 and make sure we are o.k. I don't see how you can scatter plates in a cupboard and they WILL have been used that's what they are there for!!!
NOW on the bed,it is a big money POSTURE PEDIC,I don't like hard beds either so
I took great care on this item as i want to be comfortable as well when i stay for 3 months, as this is the first comment on the bed in the 4 years of it's life,and i have regulars in for 3 mo. in the winter they, love it and come back every year, we will agree to differ. You could say that a bed is a no win situation as all people like different types,however , I got this right! One complaint, around 300 people have used the bed-IT STAYS .If anyone is worried by this, test drive the P.Ped. at your local Sears first L.O.L. and if a comforter put it right it wasn't too far wrong and remember there were 2 other nice quality new beds in the other rooms too they didn't move to 1 of these so I'm not convinced.
P.S. I'm what's known as a straight talking honest Yorkshireman I don't want to sound a bit hard and mean BUT I AM SO I DO!!!
Steve.
P.P.S. It's Dec. 12 just came back from The Wonderful Keys , i bought a new 3" memory foam mattress topper from Habitat so I have covered the bases re. the bed for the 1 person in 300 who may have a problem, it is stored in the walk in closet in the bedroom,I'm also a FAIR MAN see? 3 stars now become 5!!!!!
Also, yes the plates were a bit scattered took about 45 secs. to put same colors and sizes together ,i like it like that too, they all look new to me so to mention this does smack of someone being a bit high maintenance maybe?
Finally i bought this place when i was 36 years old ,not old, And i recently met a number of 20 somethings there, as usual,so any age group is happy at V.Out. after all Paradise is Paradise whatever age you are.

Spring Break 2012 - Family Style

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just left and miss it already. The owners are very friendly and helpful. A well kept gated community that has something for all to do with out even leaving. A vacation spot you don't mind letting kids be kids. Our kids had plenty to do which also gave Mom & Dad a much needed break. The rental is everything described and more. The views are to die for and you are close anough to Key West to enjoy all it has to offer and not break the bank. My family and I are looking at returning next spring.
