This place, and the people who owned it, made our vacation relaxing and enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

All around a very good value. We stayed in the Tiki Palm Cottage, which was beautiful, clean and well-appointed. It had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation, and truly felt like home when we were out and about all day. More importantly, Owners Bonnie and Bill, were extraordinary hosts -- available, but not hovering, warm and welcoming -- like visiting with friends we've known for years. We snorkeled and kayaked right from the property and saw lots of fish, and when we were "home" for sunsets, we watched from the beach -- perfect!

Awesome vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful property!! We had a great time..... Bonnie and Bill are terrific hosts. Fishing was excellent. You can't beat the tranquility of being bayside mixed with the convenience of being such a short distance from open water. We can't wait for next year to visit again!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was spacious, very clean and had everything you could possibly need. We enjoyed the sunset every night and the sun and ocean everyday. It is in a very convenient place to activities and restaurants and secluded all at the same time. Bonnie and Bill, thanks for welcoming us and sharing your paradise.

We had a marvelous experience at the TIKI HUT. In booking the facility Bonnie was very helpful and honest in handling the currency issues created in transferring Canadian funds to her account. The site was exactly as described in the property view. The facilities were very clean, and well stocked with cooking and bathroom supplies(Towels etc).A washer and dryer were also available in the unit for use The overall facilities were well maintained and groomed with lots of palm trees and clean sand by the ocean. A Tiki hut outside the unit was a great asset for relaxing and watching the local wildlife ( land crabs, birds, squirrels, geckos etc) Another Tiki hut and lounging chairs were also available at the beach for common use when soaking up the sun. There are three units on the property but you would hardly know it as they are spaced well apart and landscaping provided great privacy. Recommended restaurants and attractions are listed in an information booklet in the unit(well done). There is a great Wynn Dixie close by for any food beverage or other supplies required. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating through out our stay and we would definitely recommend this property rental if you want a central location in the Keys to explore the whole Key area. We would like to thank Bill and Bonnie for making our Florida vacation a great success!

What a great place !!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our vacation and I have to say, we didn't want to leave!! This place is just amazing. It's gated , there are only 3 houses/ cottages on the property and thanks to the landscaping it's very private so you can relax and enjoy your stay.The owners do a great job keeping the property nice and clean also very nice people, you can see that they do care for they guest, which was very nice!! There is a sandy beach ( have to mention...private beach...we had it just for us) so you can watch the perfect Sunsets night after night ...Just PERFECT! Our cottage was very nicely decorated , roomy and Very Clean !! I will tell all my friends about this little hidden paradise! We are definitely coming back next year! Thank you again for a perfect stay.
