on the Queen bed in the bedroom, two on the Queen sofabed in the lounge and there is one Sofa bed in the Florida Room. It is a dry lot with lovely sea-views & breeze LOCATED @ Lot# 537 Venture Out 701 Spanish Main Drive, Cudjoe Key fl33042.

Unit has Central A/C & heat. There are Barbeque facilities and a 'suntrap' picnic area outside at the back, sundeck to the front with lovely views over the sea to the U.S.1 and looking out to the East the Atlantic and deep blue sea.

I love to sit on the sun deck,with a beer,and watch the fishing boats go by, Pelicans and Osprey cruise overhead and the white herons stalking fish on the reef just off shore.

At night you can sit in the breeze and watch the moon rise, shimmering on the sea, the International Space Station slipping quietly across the sky and if you look for a few minutes up to space the shooting stars are just beautiful,PARADISE.

This place is one of the keys best kept secrets! If you are looking for a 4 star hotel, keep moving. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable home.... then you found it! The home has everything... from clean towels and pots and pans to beach chairs and nice cold A/C. The bed is super comfortable and the futon in the living room was perfect for the teenagers. Largo oversized porch worked perfectly to store all our dive and fishing gear. Floating in the pool overlooking the open water was amazing and the small convenience store located in the community was perfect. Nice quiet, peaceful neighborhood.... it doesn't get better than this! Can't wait to go back in a few months!

Owner's Response: Well i'm actually a bit speechless, doesn't occur often so -Thank you. Steve. P.S. I do have a habit , historically, of taking all the praise and basking in it so I must add this. In anything you are only as strong as your weakest link, recently I found Jenny the cleaner, she is an absolute gem and is responsible for the place being as it is, she is the unseen midfield player who does so much to keep a football (English football) team ticking but never gets noticed, today she gets noticed and THANK YOU!!!!! For making me look good.

Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family our 5 stayed 2 weeks at Steves great house. We had a great time! The house was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The Venture Out community was also nice! A great pool and hot tub. The swimming area next to the pool was pretty cool also....tons of lobsters hiding under the rocks. It was hard to keep the kids out of the H2O. And you simply cannot get any better than the rental rates...very nice!

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

When you're in the keys, IMO, you don't need much for accommodations because you want to do outdoor activities. Steve's home OVER delivers. We had an AMAZING time and the home was just perfect. Thank you for letting us stay, can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Why thank you very much I think I will keep doing it exactly the same way as I do, if it's not broken don't fix it, however, really it's not about me it's the place that sells itself. Cheers Steve.

Owner's Response: Well there you go, sometimes when things seem too good to be true they actually are true!!! One of my favourite photos is the pool at sunset,yellow,gold,red and purple backed palm trees with the water reflecting the sky, little moments you can't buy at a travel agent -Paradise. Thank you for the nice comments and i do love the 5s because i know they are merited, i also appreciate them,if you look back at the couple of 4s i got, one was because the plates were'nt straight in the cupboard and one was because i left a clean but damp cloth hanging on the oven handle so they could use on arrival, after i had done the clean- these situations miss the whole point,that being, THIS IS VENTURE OUT, THIS IS THE FLORIDA KEYS AND THIS IS PARADISE!!!!! I could arrive here find a dead elephant on the front porch and i would still score it a FIVE!!!!! Steve. P.S. I don't want to sound obsessed with the 5 out of 5s but iam so i do.

Great Location, Fun Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VBRO and I was a little freaked out when Steve told us to just send a check to his bank to reserve it. I thought it'd be harder and that worried me. But I decided to try it, and, boy, am I glad I did. Everything was ready when we arrived, there were no problems. Everything was clean and in working conditions. The Internet was fabulous (this was the ONLY place we stayed where we did NOT have Internet problems), the cable worked, and the resort was safe, clean and lovely. The porch is nice, with a separate door, so if you need a makeshift second bedroom say, for example, if you happen to have preteen who wants to escape her preschool brother. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, as well, and Violet was very sweet and helpful.

One thing renters *might* need to know if you're older with walking problems - the ramp is pretty steep and the only way into the trailer. The door is also at the top of the ramp, but still in the incline, rather than on the landing. I only mention it because I happened to be in a boot that week and it was a bit tricky for me to walk up the ramp and get in. I did it and it was fine but if you had to use a walker or in a cast, it might be hard. On the other hand, it's perfect if someone in the part is in a wheelchair.

Owner's Response: Yes good all round assessment, what comes out is the payment method everything goes through the bank it makes things simpler for the accountant and in the confirmation email i do put all the contact details of the bank,Venture Out office and Violet so people can do their own security checks, if required. By the way ANOTHER 5 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
