Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bernie,



Pardon the delay in sending you this note. Things have been pretty hectic since we returned catching up with work and getting ready for a move to a new house.

Greg and I want to thank you. We had an amazing time at the Keys Kottage. Both the cottage and the entire property and location are absolutely beautiful. Staying there brought back many childhood memories when my family and I would spend summers at the keys. We enjoyed every single day. We rented a boat and visited various reefs, snorkeled, fished, and just cruised the beautiful waters. We also snorkeled right around the bulkhead and saw giant spider crabs and all types of fish. It was very difficult to leave. The cottage was very comfortable and appealing. We also enjoyed the very friendly widelife. We had a few squirls that practically sat on our laps asking for treats when we sat outside on the cottage terrace.



........I don't know if it is possible to reserve it now for next year........... Please do let us know. We would love to make the cottage our second home in the Keys.



All our best to you,

Elizabeth and Greg

This was the perfect vacation. The Villa is lovely, and Bernie is a great guy. It's very friendly and relaxed. Everyone goes to the dock each night and celebrates the sunset. I plan to stay there every chance i get!!!

This was our first time renting a place that we had not seen before. We were pleasently suprised on how well the property and cottage was kept. The week went by so fast that we couldn't believe it was time to go. The Kottage was perfect for the four of us. Our two grandsons were able to vacation with us,and with the water access and central location to everything they will have memories that will last a lifetime. We went to the Diving Museum, Founders Park, Indian Key Park, Lignum Vite Park, the sand bar at Whale Harbor cut,and skied every afternoon in the bay. I even cought a shark on one of our fishing trips. We would go back tomorrow. Thank you for the use of your paradise.

Very Nice

Great native surroundings, including an iguana. Squirrels ate grapes right out of our hands. House was spotless. Doors a bit tough to secure, tho. Plenty of amenities available(everything we needed and then some) Fabulous cement deck for sunset watching. Boater friendly.
Great food at Wahoo's
What's not to love about the Fla Keys!!

Owner's Response: We're glad Stuart had a good time. This is the first we've heard about the doors, and since we're staying in the Kottage this week we'll be sure to take care of it immediately. Since the doors are all aluminium its probably no more complicated than some lubricant.
Post-script: The doors needed, andd received new hinges. Works like a charm, now.

Linda and Bernie,

Where do six weeks go? Your delightful Keys Kottage made them fly by again. After staying there the past few years its becoming a second home to us.

We had considered trying different places in the Keys but simply cannot give up the unique facilities, the friendly atmosphere and the wonderful sunsets. As you know, we have already booked for 2010.

Your cottage fits us perfectly allowing us to invite friends for visits and we even got our son to come down for two weeks this year.

Thanks again for a wonderful vacation and we are looking forward to seeing you next year.

It is with much trepidation that we comment on the Holzman’s “Keys Kottage” for fear of not being able to get reservations in the future. After painful consideration, we have decided that it would be unfair to not provide remarks on our recent stay for others. The “Kottage” was everything as promised …..and more! The web photos do not do it justice! We have been visiting the Keys since the 70’s, and have stayed at many different accommodations. The week we spent was by far the most relaxing and comfortable because of the cleanliness, prime location (land and water), privacy, boat dockage, option to bring our two dogs (empty nest substitutes), sunsets, landscaping, spacious rooms, comfortable bed,……….. I could go on and on.The only negative about our stay? Having to pack up and head home.Thank you again Linda and Bernie, we are already planning another stay soon!

Location

Activity and Interests

You're minutes away from the best back country (bonefish, tarpon,

permit, snook, redfish), blue water (sailfish, dolphin, wahoo,

cobia)

and reef fishing (grouper, snapper, yellowtail) in the entire

Florida

Keys. Fishing off of our jetty in the evening is alot of fun for

the

kids. Magnificant snorkeling and scuba diving sites abound in the

local area. A wide range of boating activities are available year

round since our area of the bay is well protected. Sea Kayacking

and

canoeing along our shoreline is popular. Of course water skiing and

knee-boarding are a hit with the kids. Local shopping for clothing,

souveniers, and fishing and boating needs is plentiful. Grocery

stores are convenient. There are several local attractions if you

need a day out of the sun and there are several . Key West is a day-

trip away.
