Tropical Breeze Conch Cottage on Ocean Front Property
Cudjoe Key Lower Florida Keys

Needs a facelift

  • 2 of 5
I cannot recommend this property. While it does have a secure, gated driveway, 3 boat slips, & Mike & Sue were attentive, I was sadly surprised at how run-down the property was & that other guests gave it such high marks. There's not much to do on Cudjoe, although accessible to other islands like Key West and Looe key where we went snorkeling one day. First the good: Mike is friendly, & quick to arrive at the meet & greet. He did ask if we needed anything and showed us around. He gave a few suggestions for restaurants and activities in Key West. We did not meet Sue, but she was friendly via text and email. The Not-so-good: 1) We feel that the photos are misrepresentative of the condition of the property which is in need of a facelift. This is a diamond in the rough property that could be so charming. We were not aware that the cottages weren't on the water but rather perpendicular to it on the driveway. Fortunately, we had the cottage closest to the water & pool, but our back 'yard' looked out over a broken gas grill and overgrown foliage. 2) We thought the internet was free, but then told we had to pay for it. Also, the internet didn't work for the first 1 1/2 we were there. When we balked, fortunately Sue & Mike remedied that situation, but it took several texts and frustration from us. 3) Of the nine lounge chairs around the pool, eight were in disrepair and almost unusable. 4) While it was nice to have a pool, it actually was quite small for the number of guests who are able to stay in the 6 houses. The main house, next to the pool, was rented to two families with 6 small children who monopolized the pool when they were there. It was a bit awkward for the other guests to enjoy the pool area when the main-house guests were around who seemed 'put out' when we were by the pool. This is not the fault of the owners, but renters should know that the pool and pool area are small. 5) The cottages were clean. However, very poorly equipped. I was surprised that several of the reviews commented on how 'well-equipped' the kitchen was. I felt that it was thrown together with odds and ends from a rummage sale and leftover catering spoons. While it was clear that we would be given some toilet paper, a garbage bag and a roll of paper towels, we had one roll of toilet paper and one garbage bag, and not one roll of paper towels. The furniture was vintage '80's with very care-worn fabrics. Some fun throw pillows, the ambiance of the cottage would have been much better.

Family Fun in Cudjoe Key

  • 5 of 5
My family of five stayed at this property for nearly a week. We loved the close proximity to all of our planned activities, but appreciated that this property is nestled back from the main US1, with a secure driveway. During our stay, there was only one other cottage occupied and we felt completely at home. Mike often stopped by to see if we needed anything and even kept my husband company when the kids and I took an afternoon snooze (snorkeling is fun but draining). The cottage itself was just the right size for us, clean and had excellent hot water/good pressure. We have travelled to many places, domestically and internationally, and this was our best vacation ever! Thank you, Mike and Sue!!

We just recently brought the boat down and our dogs to this lovely rental.
When we checked in we where greeted by Mike the owner who spoke with me for a few minutes and gave me advice how to safely navigate the shallow waters near the house. He also gave us details on some good eats, where to get my dive tanks filled, an where to get groceries.

The property was exactly as described, it was well maintained and clean.

Over all we could not of picked a better place to stay, the other people staying there where friendly and it felt a lot more like home than a vacation.
We will be staying here every time we are going to the Lower keys.

Great location for great vacation

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking to come back to the lower keys to escape winter cold. We had stayed in Key West before, and while a lot of fun, it was pretty hectic and noisy for our tastes, so we wanted to stay within easy driving distance of KW, but stay somewhere a little more laid back and quiet. Staying in one of the Conch cabins was a great decision. First of all, making arrangements with Soo was super easy. She was very helpful, got back to us right away, and made the arrangements painless. Mike, who was staying on site was super helpful and friendly. He gave us great advice about snorkling trips to try, where to get fresh seafood, the best restaurants to try and things to do in general, and when he would see us made sure we had everthing we needed and were having a good time. What a great host, thanks Mike! The cottages were interesting, historically significant since they were built in the era when they were building the overland highway to Key West, but were nicely modernized. Very well maintained, and had the ammenities we needed. The 2 bedroom cottages are great for two couples or a family of 4 or so. The inground pool was great, and there is a private beach area around the pool and a private dock if you are bringing a boat. It is right on the ocean and the water views are awesome, especially around sunset. This rental is also a great value, very affordable considering the location and ammenities. 2 local fresh seafood shops if you want to cook in, and several great places to eat within close driving distance (don't miss Mangrove Mama's). Also suggest taking a charter to Looe Key NWP for diving or snorkling. Clearest water I've ever seen. Have fun!

Relaxing week in the sun

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was in a lovely setting. We traveled from the UK and found the cottage met all our practical needs plus more. Ideal setting if you want to relax and chill. There was two restraunts within 1& half miles, we walked to both to enable us both to have a drink and the excerise meant I could eat a dessert !!! 30 mins drive to Key West which had all tourist attractions, well worth a visit. There were a number of places to drive to and go for a walk. There was a number of places to fish which the rest of the guests did and caught a great amount of fish. 

The owner Michael was very informative and made our stay hassle free and extremely enjoyable. His hospitality was greatly appreciated especially the special rum drink made with the coconuts from his trees ( thank you)  big thank you for our last evening it was lovely being able to star glaze from your fabulous  balcony.
Overall our week break in the Keys enable us to recharge our batteries meet some lovely people and eat amazing fresh sea food. We would recommend this accommodation. 

Thanks again!! hopefully we will be able to return Matt and Angela

My wife and kids loved this place..Owner was always available and very Polite on the phone for any questions.The Unit was clean, Kitchen was nice with all utensils. Even though it was not listed there was WiFi available. Violet, the cleaning lady always wants to help. Tony the handyman was cool.,I went on a party boat fishing from keywest and brought back 60 fish fillets one day (snappers & grunt). second day i went with paradise fishing charters key west and caught a 25lb King Fish. I wish there was a Fish Cleaning Station in the property .The Pool was good, there was a kayak which we could use.I wish if they had a fishing pole i could use, I could not get my Fishing gear on the plane. Next time i will rent a boat and go fishing. I will defnitely go back again..
