We (Me, my husband John, our friends Ronnie and Nikki and our lab Jett)stayed in the sparkling clean Paradise House. It slept all 4 adults and the dog very comfortably. We took full advantage of the fully stocked kitchen inside to save money and cooked all our meals here as well as the outdoor kitchen. We pretty much set up camp the whole time on their dock. It has plenty of seating, places to catch some rays or relax in the shade, easy access for swimming and snorkeling, a dining table for al fresco lunches or sunset cocktails and all the fish and lobster you can eat right off the dock. We felt very comfortable allowing our dog Jett to roam the property freely as the property is completly fenced in. We just had to keep our eye on him near the dock since he loves to swim. The other couple that checked in after us were so cool. They had a dog too about Jett's age and they played the whole time. Laurie and Cory hadn't even been there an hour when Cory dove in and grabbed 3 lobsters right off the dock and gave them to us. They went out again for about an hour the next day and brought back their limit, amazing! My highlight of our 4 night stay was Saturday night, when we all (the 4 of us, Laurie and Cory, and the owners Lori and Bobby) loaded the grill with steaks, lobsters, and hogfish and had dinner under the Tiki Hut. The Tiki Hut has seating for 6 and has a ceiling fan, plenty of lighting and surround sound speakers that you hook your iPod up to. After dinner we hung out by the campfire and roasted marshmallows. I think I drank too many Rum Runners, but it was a night I'll remember for awhile. This property is the biggest bang for your buck out there. We are already working out the details for when we can visit again. To Lori and Bobby: Thank you so much for having us. You both are so kind and down to earth. Your little piece of paradise is so well kept and beautifully designed and all the hard work that goes into it did not go unnoticed. Look no further for a truly affordable Florida Keys experience without sacrificing the luxury. It's really like having an entire resort all to yourselves.
