A month in Key Largo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February at this beautiful home. I cannot say enough good things about it--from the moment we arrived until the day we left. The place is spotless and has everything you need for the perfect vacation: a fully-equipped kitchen, the most comfortable beds, good wifi and televisions, plenty of towels and other linens, recreational items (beach chairs, umbrellas, kayak, pool and pool "toys", hot tub, and one of our favorite spots--the outdoor bar with big-screen tv to watch our beloved Kansas Jayhawks play basketball! :) The house sits right on the canal and we loved sitting on the decks watching all the boats go by (even the "African Queen!) Kim and Thea could not be more welcoming or helpful! While we were there, the dishwasher went out and by the next day Kim had replaced it! They also took us out on their boat and we saw stingrays, turtles, sharks and lots of fish! Having lived there so long, Kim and Thea are experts on the area--they know the best restaurants, places to watch the sunset, and all the fun activities. They are a wonderful couple and we enjoyed getting to know them! You cannot go wrong with this rental!! The only negative thing I have to say is that we had to leave! :(

As with every other reviewer we could not fault our experience. Unlike a lot of places we have stayed in it was actually better than the description and pictures plus Thea and Kim were the perfect hosts. We swam, fished and snorkelled right off the dock, caught an octopus, saw some lobsters as well as plenty of fish. We made good use of the Kayaks and went north and south - if you get the chance ask Kim for directions to Kayak down to the Dolphin Rescue Centre. Might take you 20-30mins but you can sit on the water and watch them play, be fed etc for free, and see some lovely homes on the way. Had a great afternoon out on the water with our hosts on their boat, used the bikes, pool, jacuzzi etc. Also much time spent just sitting and watching the activity on the canal as all the diving, glass bottomed, pirate and Africa Queen boats passed by regularly. Restaurants within walking or biking distance, Publix only a mile or two away and the John Pennekamp park only a little further. You could probably Kayak there if the water is flat and you are a bit fitter than we are!! You will not be disappointed - also central to either head North to Miami or down to Key West. A great place to either just relax or very central if you want to get out and about. All in all, we could not have been happier with the place and the people - very sad to leave but I expect we will return

Absolutely beautiful, immaculate and anything we could have wanted or needed was already thought of!

  • 5 of 5

From the owners, to the location, and to the home itself and all of its amenities this place was beyond perfect! The home was absolutely spotless. Total privacy, pool with outdoor bar and flat screen TV, not to mention the blender for margaritas that were delightful!! Location to all of Key Largos wonderful activities including the restaurants and bars, all within walking distance. The ocean waters were some of the bluest we've ever seen! The owners were beyond gracious and we explained to them as we left, this was by far one of our nicest vacations ever!

Beautiful House in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

Kim and Thea have a beautiful home in an upscale neighborhood. Their property is beautiful inside and out. We were able to take advantage of their kayaks and saw amazing parrot fish and a pod of spotted eagle rays! One of our favorite activities was when they took us out for a sunset cruise on their pontoon. I definitely recommend their property for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the Keys, you will not be disappointed. I hope to visit again soon!

Wonderful Property and Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of March 2016 with our two kids. Thea and Kim have really added their touches to both the indoor and outdoor spaces. It was really convenient and relaxing to have the outdoor kitchen next to the pool so both parents and children could enjoy the outdoors in their own style. The indoor living space was charming, clean, and well-maintained; being in the Keys, we rarely spent much time indoors, but the four of us found the couch perfect for crashing after a long day in the sun and watching a family movie or March Madness. Thea and Kim are two of the most genuine and nicest people you could hope to run across. They were incredibly helpful, before, during, and after our stay...we hope to see them again someday!

A lovely property and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your beautiful place! Everything was just as we expected, based on the other favorable reviews. Thanks for the fun pontoon adventure looking for ocean "creatures". We really enjoyed spending time with you on the water and were thrilled at all we were able to see on such a calm, clear evening. It was a pleasure meeting you both. We would not hesitate to recommend your place to others interested in the Key Largo area.
