Property Details

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 is stored in the hallway closet. It is a 4" Beautyrest pad.

Great place to relax in the Sun.

  • 5 of 5

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

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review of the house and the area. As much as I appreciate getting a good review, I feel it is so important for the people who have never been to the area to get an honest report of what to expect! You have accomplished that in this review. Thank you and come back often!

Fun in the Sun!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

From the Owner

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!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Key West, Florida at 20 Miles Nearest Ferry : Key West at 20 Miles Nearest Train : Conch Train....local...Key West at 20 Miles Nearest Beach : Bahia Honda at 7 Miles Car: necessary

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
