We came to the 2 bedroom house at Dolphin Jump Key with High Expectations of the house and the private island and our experience exceeded the expectations. The house was in a great location and well maintained. Jim (I think that was the onsite guy's name) provided some of the best customer service I have ever experienced with a vacation rental. We flew into Key West. We called Jim and arrange a spot to meet and he actually escorted us to the house. He provided detailed instructions on the house and using the boat that was provided. He also took extra care and provided use with all the toys we needed, fishing rods, lobster catching gear, snorkeling gear and coolers. Anytime I had a question during the week and I called Jim he was there to help us.
We enjoyed and used the private island all day everyday we were there. We caught fish and lobster. We had a blast and are already planning a trip to go back.
