Exactly as depicted! Quiet, safe, friendly neighborhood , well built and wonderful floor plan
Our 11 year old son fished from early morning til long into the dark with a headlamp in canal right out back door. Hard for us parents to get a shower in because he kept catching fish and wanted to show us. He also enjoyed manatees while dad was in shower, but I got to see them! loved the patio-I sat out there in the wind and enjoyed quiet at night with fish jumping. Sufficient house supplies for us-we brought extra and felt was well worth it to book here. Loved the well light kitchen ,bathroom and LR. Beds were very comfy!!!! Plenty of linens. Great fridge, stove top was fast and we ate all meals here easily. Noone was upstairs, so very quiet. The parrots around the corner, but not noisy from this house- were enclosed in someone's patio-we laughed ourselves silly 3 times a day to go visit "Simon" and the other parrots!
Thank you very much for your review , we hope , that you will enjoy another vacation in our house
Terrific location on a clear water canal
The owners of this property were easy to deal with and responsive to our emails.
The location was the best thing about this rental. Most canals in KL are blocked on one end making the visibility too poor for snorkeling. This canal was the cleanest we have seen in our many years of visiting Key Largo. There were numerous good size fish living in the rocks under the dock and we hand fed them cut shrimp.
The rental was bare bones, basic furniture, an outdoor patio set and picnic table and a small (funky)BBQ. We ended up buying and leaving some collapsible chairs and a table top BBQ. If you are local ( from FL and driving down) bring the same things you would use when setting up a campsite. Also stock up on consumables, there is literally nothing but a starter kit of sample size soap, a few rolls of TP and a tiny dish soap.
There were plenty of towels and the beds were comfortable. The only suggestion I would offer to the owners, spend $200.00 and get a TV that was built in this decade. Trying to watch the dive videos we shot each day on a 21 inch antique TV was frustrating.
I would return to this rental which is the strongest recommendation I can make!
Always a pleasure
We have stayed here before and this year was just as enjoyable. Can't beat the location. The accommodations are excellent and the owners are very easy to work with, very personable and bend over backwards to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
Well worth the money
The apartment was exactly how it is in the photos. It was very clean and quiet. Central a/c really helped since there was no real breeze on days 3-7 of our stay. The back porch on the canal can get really hot unless there is a breeze, but there are ceiling fans (2) which helped a bit in the evening.
Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our stay and liked that we were in close proximity to stores, restaurants, and sites to see.
We needed to buy a lot of supplies (don't know if the prior renters had sticky fingers or if it always just bare bones) like dish soap, hand soap, toilet paper, paper towels, beach towels, sponges, pitchers for beverages, plastic cups, storage containers, bathroom/kitchen cleaner. Luckily there is a Family Dollar near by.
We've rented several condos before in other states, mostly for 7-10 days and they've always been super stocked with the basics. Would have liked to have access to a washer and dryer and maybe a chaise lounge chair for the patio. Cable TV stations were minimal too. For the money, though, I guess we got a deal considering we were on the canal.
FYI a resident told us to not swim in the canal since there was a presence of e-coli or some other bacteria due to sewage leakage. There's also a film on the top of the water that looks like boat fuel, which we saw right away and derailed us from taking a dip.
Really, really enjoyed the bike path for taking long walks in the evening...too many delicious conch fritters and key lime pie!
Thank you Antonio and Regina for a lovely vacation in your place :)
It was a pleasure having you as a guest. I understand that the supplies were minimal and there are no laundry facilities on premise.(there are coin laundries available for your convenience nearby). This is done in order to keep the expenses low and offer you a lower rate..I am sorry about the film of oil on the canal which prevented you from swimming, it does not normally happen as the waters are part of the John PenneKamp Coral Reef State Park and they are policed carefully to prevent such conditions from happening. Hope to see you again Thank you.
My cousins and I have stayed at Antonio and Regina's home in the Keys for the past several years for two week imtervals. The home has been a perfect match for our needs with close proximity to all the local attractions including direct access to the ocean. The owners are truly great people who have made our stay sooooo enjoyable. Their home is very comfortable and a great value. We have truly enjoyed the back patio where we have held many lobster and fresh fish feasts overlooking their wonderful canal setting. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and you get the feeling that you are all alone in the paradise of the Keys. The fishing off the dock is also very appealing with many species of fish including mangrove snapper, grouper, and an occasional cuda. Thankyou Antonio and Regina for being wonderful hosts through the years. Mike and the Boys
