Beauty and Luxury in the Keys
This place is everything that it promised. Great southern Florida location ideally situated between Miami and Key West. The well appointed home sits on a picturesque section of the canal with great views of the sunrise and sunset. The property was clean and had everything you need for a great vacation.We spent lots of quality time sitting out on the dining room deck and on the lower level at the Tiki Bar and deck area around the pool / dock area. It was very nice having the full washroom on the bar level and music channels on the large screen tv. The heated pool really sets this property apart from the others in the area. We used it and enjoyed it almost every day of our stay. The neighbors were welcoming and friendly. The kids were entertained fishing off the dock for a vast variety of fish. We met many manatees and some with calves. Dolphins would travel up and down the canal on occasion and watching the large tarpon breach the surface of the water was exciting. There were many great restaurants and shopping in the area. Billy was very helpful with organizing the rental details.
All good. Excellent location. Plenty of living space. Well maintained. No regrets
Best VRBO experience to date!
Everything about this rental was amazing. The communication was always prompt and professional and the house itself was just as advertised and seen in the pictures. My husband and I were there alone for two weeks but had family and friends visit the other weeks and it was comfortable and cozy for just the two of us but even better when we had folks visiting. With three full bathrooms, each couple had their own bath and bedroom. The outdoor space is also a bonus. The balcony just off the main upstairs living area with a table and comfortable seating for outdoor meals and drinks was a nice place for morning coffee and evening drinks to watch the sunset. We ate ALL our meals at the house because the downstairs Tiki Bar/Grill/Dining/Entertaining area was also amazing. THEN there is the heated pool. It was the perfect size to relax and cool off. The owner has a professional service that comes to service the pool once a week so it was always clean and well maintained. We had our boat with us and the location is perfect for access to the bay or cut through to the ocean. We also liked the orientation of the house as it sits at the end of a block so our view was down the canal with a great view versus staring straight across at another house. In short, everything was perfect. We will for sure be back!!!!
First the positive: We rented this home for about 6 weeks this winter. We had friends and family visit us and there was room for everyone in this very beautiful home. The beds are comfortable, the furnishings are high quality. The window treatments are designer quality and really nice. Great pool! The pool and home were very clean. We saw manatees and tarpon from the dock, and it is very easy access to the bay.
The negatives I will list will not prevent us from renting the home in the future. First and foremost, I really enjoy lying in bed and watching TV, but there are no TV's in any of the bedrooms. If there had been a TV just in the master, we would have rented again, but after putting in my request, they chose not to install a TV, which is of course their prerogative. And there are plenty of other TV's throughout the house, and they are very nice. Some other things that bothered us... The master closet was filled with their personal belongings, so not really any room for our belongings. And being there 6 weeks, I needed a closet badly. Even though I felt like I was invading their privacy, I pushed their things aside to make room for our clothing, shoes, etc. I didn't know what else to do. The closet clearly stated "owner's closet". We have our own VRBO unit in Colorado, and make sure the closets in the bedrooms are empty for our guests. The kitchen was poorly stocked and I needed to go buy a casserole dish and frying pan. The dinnerware is very poor quality plastic that did not hold up to microwaving or the dishwasher. Glassware was very nice. The sheets in the master bedroom were very worn and pilled so I rummaged through another closet also marked owners closet to find a decent set. The comforter on the master bedroom wasn't too clean so the first day there I took it to a laundromat and washed it. The security is very tight at this home, which I suppose is a good thing, but there are flashing lights everywhere (which we covered up with a paper bag at night cuz they kept us up!). Each time the door opens an alarm beeps and it was slightly annoying. Very beefed up security! Also, I sure do enjoy hooks in the bathroom for pj's and bathrobes, towels n such, but only one towel bar in each bathroom, no hooks. We put a towel down in the master cuz the tub was a little slippery.
All this being said, we enjoyed ourselves immensely and would love to return! The positives far outweigh the negatives. Brad and Diane, Denver, CO
Wonderful home and location. Easy access to John Pennekamp, boating and snorkeling. Will definately do it again!
Paradise!! As advertised
We stayed here in july 2015 with my parents, siste, nephew, my husband and kids. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We rented kayaks and went right off the dock. Easy access to supermarket. The kids fished in the canal as well. We rented a boat and parked it here and used it to visit popular snorkeling spots and to fish. The decor was tropical and well-kept. The outdoor areas for coffee in the morning and all day/night swimming in the pool, hammock and the tiki bar made this a fantastic stay for all. Close to pennekamp. Great times!
