Paradise by the dock on the bay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Bay Breeze Cottage. The beach and docks were the highlight of our trip. My two teenage boys spent every morning and evening fishing off the docks, catching lots of grunts, several sharks, netting crabs, endless fun. We saw manatees, jellyfish, moray eel, sharks, barracuda and tarpon. We loved the kayaks and floaties, and lots of fish to see snorkeling. We definitely recommend this slice of paradise!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great Review !! It's so great to have guests spend time down at the dock and beach area. So many people go off to snorkel or fish at other spots in the Keys and they miss what's right here at their doorstep on the property. Glad you and your family were able to experience lots of sea life while staying here !!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and my parents spend 10 days here. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the outside living areas at both the cottage and at the beach area. We spent hours fishing on the pier--caught a few fish and had a manatee visit us. The layout of the property feels tropical and peaceful. Bill and Bonnie are very easy to work with and available if you need them. There are plenty of things to do within a 1/2 a mile in either direction; however, it is very relaxing to just enjoy the property. We all had a great time and hope to return again.

My wife and I spent 10 days here, in what was the most tranquil vacation we have ever had. This is the place if you really want to relax and enjoy yourselves. You will never find better hosts than Bonnie and Bill. The landscaping is amazing, and really lets you feel the tropical environment. The cottage is very well done and has the true Keys atmosphere. And then there is your very own private beach, with kayaks. Warning...you may not do and see everything you plan on, because once you have your morning coffee on the patio or under the tiki hut, and then sit on the beach with a good book, the day may be over and you will be facing a sunset. We have never come away from vacation more relaxed, and rested !

If you are looking for a vacation where someone is waiting on you all the time, then go to an all-inclusive. But if you want to experience true tranquility in a tropical atmosphere, on your own private beach, then this is it. There is plenty to do and see in the area, if you can drag yourself away. Either way, you will not be disappointed. We plan on returning again...and again.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things to say about this property. The cottage was clean and well decorated. It had all the amenities needed for our weeklong stay. Bonnie and Bill were terrific. They pointed us in all the right directions. My husband and daughters had a great time kayaking and snorkeling right in the backyard. The water is clean and clear, and they saw as many fish as they did on a snorkeling tour and at a state park beach. Great central location with lots to do nearby. We will definitely be back.

Perfect Keys Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

5 Star Rental! Cottage was adorable, super clean and private. The description and photographs of the property were exactly as described, absolutely no surprises. Kitchen was well stocked with pans, dishes, utensils etc. Grounds are beautiful! Nice layout with area’s for sunning and shade and use of their kayaks! Most importantly, don’t forget to find out when the sun is suppose to set as you will want to go out to their private beach and docks and enjoy this amazing sight! Bonnie and Bill were wonderful hosts, down to earth, very accommodating and just plain nice decent people. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to vacation don’t hesitate to book. This rental would be great for couples or families with young children, plenty of space for kids to play, lots of local wildlife on land and in the sea, fishing from the dock, snorkeling from the beach and a washer and dryer so you don’t have to pack much. Definitely a place I would recommend to my friends and family, I almost hate leaving this 5 star review…I’m afraid that it will be booked the next time we travel to the Keys but Bonnie and Bill are so deserving for sharing their piece of paradise with us.
