Left on 04/11/2015 for a stay in April 2015 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 11, 2015Stayed Apr 2015
We stayed at this property for 4 days with one other couple. We had plenty of space as we were thinking there might be 2 other couples joining us. There would have been plenty of room if they had.
On our arrival we were met by Nestor he explained the house and where everything was and how it worked.
We had come down by motorcycle and had planned on using this as a home base
We unpacked ran to the store to stock up on some things. There is a Winn Dixie close by. We made breakfast every morning what a great way to start the day sitting on the balcony overlooking the water. We all commented on how we would be content to just stay at the house enjoy the peace and beautiful surroundings.
After our shopping we were all in need of cooling off and hopped in the water. It was so refreshing. There are a set of stairs to get in the water off the dock. We purchased some inflatables when we went grocery shopping and just floated and relaxed. You do have to make sure one of the neighbors are not taking a boat out. Even if they do they do not create a wake, just make sure you are visible and make your presence known.
Our second day we went on a snorkel trip which was fun but a little rough due to wind.
Afterwards we barbecued and much to our delight enjoyed watching 3 manatee, a mom and baby and another. They swam in the front of the house for most of the afternoon.
The house has all things you would need and some extras you don't expect.The washer and dryer were a big help. I was also happy to find a hair dryer in our bathroom since it is one thing I don't pack when we travel by motorcycle. There were fishing poles to use to go fishing although we did not use them. There were plenty of chairs for sitting by the water or up on the balconies. The balcony off the kitchen had a nice size table and that is where we ate every meal.
The internet service was very good.
In a previous review the reviewer commented about the hot water we had plenty.
We spent one day in Key West which was not a too long a ride
We all were very happy with the property and hope to return again.
I did recommend the rental for families although as another reviewer had said the open stairs might be a problem if you have crawlers & toddlers. Older people might have a problem if stairs are an issue although one of the bedrooms is on the second floor.
Nestor was very helpful with our questions and concerns. Which is another reason we would rent this place again.

We really enjoyed our stay at this location. The property was just as described including all maintenance issue's, and advisement of work which is done in the winter months. It was no problem for us, this was a "family vacation". Internet access worked without a hitch and we never turned the TV on at all. The balconies off the main area and each bedroom greeted us in the morning and evening with relaxing views and breezes. I have recommended this property to all our friends. Even our daughters 25 & 26 commented on wanting to come back here again one day with their own families. Yes many people will find fault but we came to enjoy precious time together.The PUR water filter not only provided hot water for drinks but saved us money on bottled water by reusing containers. Access to a washer and dryer were also a big plus. We look forward to returning again one day and appreciated meeting both the property owner and his lovely wife.
