House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps easily
Location, location,location briefly describes this small piece of
paradise. Located on a private and quiet openwater lot, this
charming home offers a wonderful view even to those people who do
not want to go outside. While sitting inside or lazing out on a
lounger, the tranquility and beauty of the tropics are yours. The
very comfortable and functional home is fully equiped for a
wonderful vacation. The bedrooms are furnished with queen sized
beds and each bedroom has a full bath. The kitchen has a
dishwasher, electric stove, blender, toaster/oven, coffee pot and
radio/cd player for the cook's enjoyment. The dishes are full
service with tropical pattern and 18/10 stainless flatwear. There is a
separate set of dishes for outside dining if paper plates are not
wanted. There is also a set of formal China for those very special occasions. Washer, dryer and iron and ironing board are also provided and in excellent condition.
as well as hair dryer. The front sea wall/patio area has sturdy
chairs and a beautiful large table with 2 side benches and a
barbeque grill. There is a queen sized pull out sofa in the
living room. The home has very nice palm trees and flowers adding to
its tropical appeal. The boat space outfront is excellent for a
large or small boat with deep water and cleats to secure the boat.
There are three tvs and 2 vcrs, a small stereo system, a selection of
videos both for adults and children as well as an assortment of books
for both adults and children. The home also has WiFi access. This is our home away from home and when it has been used by renters, they have thanked us for its
comfort. We hope you find it to be a place of comfort and relaxation
to you and your family!
The house has WiFi and works well with cell phone reception.
We had added a memory foam mattress for use with the pull out sofa when the pull sofa is needed....it is stored in the hallway closet. It is a 4" Beautyrest pad.
Best place ever!!
Many thanks for such a wonderful review! I did feel like you were family and I did feel like I was part of your family.
It makes me so happy when my family and my rental friends/family find they love the same sights and places that have given me pleasure.
The Lower Keys are an addiction...once you have tried it, you see the beauty that is there for our enjoyment.
With the location being just 20 miles away from Key West, we have the serenity of living the island life and the fun of The Everything Goes Life in Key West.....people just do their own thing, dress the way they want and live on Key's Time!
Fond regards, Fran

About Fran, owner
We are a family with 'sand in our shoes' from the Jersey shore...but in the winter we head to The Lower Keys....same love of the water, fishing, boating, family togetherness prevails here as well as in NJ...thankfully!
Fran, owner purchased this house in 1992
Why Fran, owner chose Lower Florida Keys
Venture Out is a densely populated resort....we have the tip of one of the fingers which gives us the privacy, view and access to everything we love with no one looking over our shoulder!
What makes this house unique
We own the sunrise....the fish swim for us alone...the birds perform their aerial ballet when we are present...the dolphin knock when they swim by....just for us alone....almost honest!

Best place ever!!
First I want to say that Fran the owner is the best. She made us feel as if we were family. The home was very clean and well kept. She made sure we had everything we needed. The decription online was true to what it said, the best part was being able to sit right out the back door just a few feet from the water and enjoy the sunrise every morning. We really enjoyed grilling and sitting in the dinning area with all of the windows and having the ocean right there. The home is in the perfect location because we were minutes from all of the exciting things to do in the Keys, like golf, house tours, walking Duval street. We rented a golf cart for 4 and toured the Keys area and had a blast, it worked great because it is so crowded and trying to get around in a regular vehicle was horrible, so I really suggest renting one of those, they are really worth it. Fran the owner was very helpful with telling us about great places to eat and they were all great. She was kind enough to hook us up with the community golf outing, and we all had a great time. The home is located in a gated community and is well maintained. There was one Saturday morning the community had a pancake breakfast for anyone to enjoy. Fran had bicycles available at the house, and we were able to ride around the gated community to get around. The area is very clean and all the people are polite. I would recommend this home to anyone. There is nothing negative I could say about our stay there except that we would have loved to of stayed longer. So if we go back to the Keys we would definitely rent this home again. Love you Fran and thanks again for all you did for the crazy crew. Rosa, Phil, Cindy and Randy. Miss you.
Great place to relax in the Sun.
We stayed 2 weeks at # 382 this past winter. Found the house to be in very good condition and quite clean. What a wonderful place to relax. The water is just a few steps out the back door. Good snorkeling is just 20' away. The location of the house is one of the best in the Venture out community being right on the water. 20 miles to the west is Key West, and 10 miles to the East is Bahia Honda Key. You can rent a boat & tie up right outside your door. Fran the owner is a wonderful person who offered any help or recommendations needed, otherwise we never saw her, (she lives next door). We hope to be back. Thanks Fran for everything. Andy
Fun in the Sun!!
Cozy home with the ocean right out the back door for gorgeous sunrise and tons of fish to watch right off the patio. I couldn't be more pleased. A great place for swimming and kayaking as well as just being there on the water. The pool and sauna were so convenient and the use of the bikes made it fun to explore our little place in the sun. I loved the the friendly community, I guess being in the sun makes everyone happy.
Wonderful, clean place!
This was the perfect house for our vacation! I was a little concerned about privacy when we first arrived at Venture Out because all of the houses were so close to each other, but this house is in a perfect location on the open water and privacy was not an issue. The house was spotlessly clean, fully equipped and tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Fran was in the neighborhood during our stay and was a wonderful hostess whom we really enjoyed meeting and talking with. My husband liked having the boat right out the front door, and the boat cleaning station was a huge bonus when we were ready to leave. We will definitely be back! Thanks, Fran!

Activity and Interests
Our home is located off MM23 which is 19 miles away from Key West
and is very accessible to Looe Reef which is one of the best diving
spots in the Keys. We have easy access to both the Atlantic and the
Gulf's Back Country for fishing including bonefish, permit and
tarpon. We are surrounded by great restaurants, a variety of night
life, theatre arts, museums, art galleries, boat rentals for
kayaking/canoeing or charters for your specific fishing wants.
Bahia Honda State Park, Dolphin Research Center, National Key Deer
Refuge and Looe Key Diving Center are also near by. There awaits
the many discoveries for you to find on your own. Maybe, in the
book we keep in the house, you will tell us some of the many and
varied great things that you have found and wish to share (except
the co-ordinates on that 'secret' fishing hole)with the rest of us!
Good weather, good health and safe vacationing! The Owners of #382
