Where do you live?

Wonderful Key Largo!

  • 5 of 5

Val & Cary were at the property when we arrived & showed us where everyhing was located, how to operate the hot tub, the lights etc. They were very gracious hosts and gave us their phone numbers for any questions we might have.

It was nice having the hot tub and the large outdoor seating under the tiki hut!

The manatees visited us quite often & sometimes let us pet them. Cary wrote a list of their favorite restaurants & also three that she didn't recommend. We loved the fresh fish in Key Largo, the restaurants are somewhat pricier here.

Before we left, we found that Happy Hour is a good time to dine to save some money & the times do differ.

Their home is very comfy, spotless and nicely decorated with a nautical theme. I forgot to mention that we really loved the large sunroom to relax in and read! Wii Fii worked well there.

It was great having the extra bedroom & bath, as we had guests for a few days.

This place is move in ready, with everything one needs, even coffee to get you started! It was nice that we were very close to a grocery store, dollar store and a beautiful Catholic Church!

This is a good place to relax on a canal & enjoy your vacation.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

Cary and Val were there when we got there to quickly show us around and give us direction on a couple things....we never did grill outside but the area was full on if that's your thing or you plan to entertain. We enjoyed the Hot Tub and the outside sitting area the best....sunning and fishing right there on the patio....we actually saved money by staying here because we didn't have to run somewhere was so comfy and like I said...sunning and fishing right there.....the inside was fully loaded with everything you could possibly need....we really wouldn't have needed to take anything with us....but tried to replenish what we did use as they were great at having stuff to get you started so you wouldn't have to rush right out to the store....We felt so at home ... everything was so comfortable from the living room to the beds...TV's in every room and even though we were only one couple...the spare room came in handy on those I wanta take a nap days and snoring nights.....:) Have to give a shout out to the cleaning person...everything was spotless! I never used the dishwasher but nice to have had one in case.

Everything we liked to frequent was within 5 miles....and for the first time in 8/10 years of going down...we seen Manatee's.... they actually visit up and down the canal the Manatee Oasis name fits this place!

The only thing I can say is this place is won't be sorry you stayed here and Cary and Val are only a phone call away and very pleasant people! Thanks for a great stay...hope to be back...we will be in touch soon!

Thanks again!

Connie and Jeff

Great Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

We were very fortunate to find this great place on short notice. The home was nicely furnished and decorated with plenty of room for us (three adults). It has a large entertainment room off the kitchen and a washer and dryer conveniently located in the hallway. I think the best features were the outside areas -- kitchen/sitting area off to the side, great sunsets in the front of the house overlooking the pond area and a nice tiki shelter in the back overlooking the canal. We enjoyed the relaxing "get away" ambiance it offered. The Manatees visited us a few times during our three week stay. It was fun playing with them in the canal.

We enjoyed the Key Largo area with great restaurants to try, many of which had beautiful ocean/bay views. Karyn and Val were very hospitable and accomodating to our short notice needs. Thanks Karyn and Val for everything.

Everything in Pristine condition ....

  • 5 of 5

Everything was spotless, very clean and organized. Great location, quiet neighbors... Karyn and Val were very helpful in guiding us to nearby restaurants, events, etc.

Watching sunset in the jacuzzi was fabulous!

We will definitely be back next year! BTW: we did see manatees in the canal

See you next year... Sheyla

Perfect trip to the keyes

  • 5 of 5

Just got back a few days ago from Karyn's place in Key Largo, and so happy we picked this place. We are already trying to plan when we can get back. This was our first trip to the keyes with our 2 kids, age 10 and 13, and we all loved it. The house was very well equipped, with all linen and towels, paper products, cleaning supplies, games, fishing and tackle equipment, and even cooking supplies. All you really need is your bathing suit! Very quiet and relaxing spot on the canal. We watched the sunset in the hot tub in the evenings... does it get any better than that? We went snorkeling at John Pennekamp right up the street- would definitely recommend that. Lots of great restaurants in the area. We had a great time at this place called "the tiki bar" at the postcard inn in Islamorada, about 20 min away, great seafood right on the water- beach and pool open to public for free- mom and dad relaxed and kids went paddleboarding and swimming. Do yourself a favor if you visit key largo- skip the big expensive resorts and stay at Karyn's place. It's a real gem.
