Great house, renters and experience
We had a fabulous stay and the renters were so easy to work with. I can’t say enough great things about this rental.
This home fit our needs perfectly!
We stayed a this wonderful, canal front home for 3 months this winter. In the past, we have stay at 4 other rental homes in the Keys, and this home was the best of all for what we were looking for. Having the 2 separate living areas was excellent. Our daughter and son-in-law, with their 2 kids visited us over Christmas. They used the lower level of the home, and we had the upper level. Perfect! We gathered for meals and events, but by late evening, we each had our privacy.
The kids and grandkids REALLY liked this place. They were using the furnished paddleboards, and kayak almost every day of their visit. The son-in law and grandson caught snapper and small tarpon in the canals right by the home. The water in the canal was very clear and the grandkids swam in it most days. There is a ladder on the bulkhead that made it easy for them to get in and out.
We really enjoy fishing, and had brought our bay boat with us. It just fit perfectly in the cover slip area that is located next to the fish cleaning table that also has a roof over it. Both areas have great lighting so if you get back late, the lighting allows you to work on your boat or clean fish after dark. There is a hose right next to the boat slip for cleaning the boat, and a double sink with faucet @ the cleaning table. Again...Perfect!
The home is furnished much nicer than most rental homes. High quality decorating, and all 3 bathrooms in the home have been recently remodeled and are wonderful. Having kitchens on each level was also a treat. There is also a small chest freezer in the storage room, that is great for storing ice and supplies for fishing.
Speaking of fishing! On the Oceanside side, there is super fishing on the reefs and there are 5 sunken ships that attract LARGE fish, within easy boating distance from the home. We caught enough Blackfin Tuna and other great eating fish, to feed ourselves and most of neighbors. Going out to the Gulf side are the Content Keys. They offer some of the best scenery and fishing that the entire Keys have to offer on the Gulf side. The Keys TOP diving spot is also very close to the home. Looe Key reef.
We liked this home so much that we re-booked for next winter before we left this winter. Highly recommend!
Great house in paradise!
Just returned home from our month long vacation in this beautiful home! The house and location are amazing. We had family and friends visit and everyone was amazed at how beautiful everything was. We were able to borrow a boat for a few weeks and it was no problem storing the trailer and launching the boat close by. The location is great for exploring the nearby bays and islands. We especially enjoyed the upstairs porch, the view of the water and palm trees is great, very relaxing. The location is great for traveling to beaches, restaurants and Key West. We would highly recommend Kiki's Tiki, you can walk there from the house and the food, service and views are great! Would love to return some day! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
Great family vacation
Great location and property. House was perfect to split with two families, one on each floor...will full kitchens in both. Loved the backyard, which faces East so you don't bake in the afternoon sun.....also loved the balcony on the 2nd floor for mornings. Great place to take boats, it easily accommodated our two boats....has an awesome covered and lighted fish cleaning station and a bait freezer. House was nicely decorated, and was very comfortable to unwind after being out on the water all day. Two coral reefs, one close right offshore...and the other is my favorite reef of the Keys...Looe Key.
Wow! Ideal vacation house, great location, well-outfitted
The house was perfect for our group of eight (kids downstairs, adults up). The canal-front location was awesome for a boat and for quick dips to cool off or just laze in an innertube (two were provided) in the canal. The hot tub was great too. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice and well furnished. We loved the large upstairs kitchen and living room and the spacious upstairs patio, which was well furnished with table and chairs and a comfortable couch, chairs, and coffee table. The lawn furniture was great too. Everything was provided--more than enough bedding, towels, paper products, kitchen utensils, pots & pans, etc. with extras like laundry hampers, innertubes, and noodles. (Bring your own sharp chef's knife if you cook; most of the knives weren't very sharp.) Two washers and two dryers meant we could all do laundry and dry beach and bath towels anytime. I own a VRBO and stay in vacation homes, and was extremely impressed with how nicely furnished and well outfitted we found this home. Bettina answered all questions before and during our stay. FWIW if I were renting only half the house I would suggest the upstairs (assuming you could still use the canal area and hot tub). Highly recommended!
Lovely, updated rental
We rented both condos for two families over the Easter weekend. The furniture is comfortable, the linens are new and soft, and the kitchen was outfitted with everything you need (there was even a crock pot!) The owner was extremely responsive when we had questions. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again.
