Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Linda - Had a great time, and everyone loved the place. We will come back next year. We caught a LOT of fish - groupers, rose fish, tile fish - at 650 ft down. Took about 15 minutes to reel them up, but the kids liked it even if some of the adults' arms were sore. And my oldest son caught a 6'4" tarpon while out night fishing for sharks (no sharks, though). Snorkeling and scuba were very good too. The other house was the shopping/restaurants/bars crowd, while we were in the water most of the time Anyway, thanks for everything. John Lutz.

It wasn't what I thought it would be

  • 2 of 5

The pictures made it look so much bigger than it was made out to be. I was impressed with how clean it was. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful. I was disappointed that the beds were so warn out. It made it very difficult to sleep. Unfortunately I had to sleep on the couch.There is only one tv in the master bedroom. The owner was easily reached when we had a problem with the water. Workers in the area shut it off and didn't tell us. We've rented a few different places from home away over the last 6-7 years, but this would deter me from doing it again.

Owner's Response: You say there was only 1 TV in the master. There is a television in the living room AND one in the master just to be clear to other prospective guests. You say "it look so much bigger than it was 'made out to be'. " I'm so sorry that you found our bungalow too small for you. If size is an issue for you it would be great to ask, the pictures are the pictures and no where does it say it isn't anything more than it is... Lovely bungalow, clean, impeccable, gorgeous open water views, fully equipped with any kitchen utensil you would need, top of the line washer & dryer with beautiful furnishings. As to the beds it will be the first time I've heard this about the beds.

Accommodations very nice But lot of rules.

  • 3 of 5

Linda's rental was comfortable. Park rules a bit over the top, water prohibited near hot tub area a great example - not sure why.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were put off by the 'rules'. The rules are mostly common sense, considerate type things or insurance issues. Quiet time after 11:00 PM, parking for one vehicle per unit etc, Happy to provide those to anyone BEFORE you book in case you're opposed to any of our pretty benign way of keeping things happy and peaceful for all folks and neighbors. This is an amazing little place in a beautiful location in a friendly little spot in paradise.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our 10th year anniversary-we got married in Key west. We usually stay in the middle keys, but decided to try something different this time and I'm sure glad we did. This place is very well appointed and Linda is super informative and easy to work with.She recommended a few restaurants that we probably wouldn't have tried otherwise and we were not disappointed !! The "resort" is more like a campground, but everyone was super friendly, and the pool was a great spot to start our Mornings with a swim, there is also a little beach where you can swim in the ocean if you wanted to.And the jacuzzi was a nice place to end the day as it was Oct. and as far as the keys go, a "little" chilly

The view is fantastic, we spent most of our time there on the upper deck just enjoying the scenery, but the house it self is very comfortable ,spacious and extremely clean. My only criticism ( if I HAD to come up with one) is the bed in the master bedroom could use replacing soon .

Thank you Linda for all your information on walks and rentals and especially restaurants. The Square Grouper was fantastic!!!

Quiet Florida Keys community

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a gated community called Venture Out. The Venture Out staff was very friendly and accommodating. The view we had in this house was awesome! The pool was very large and nice. Be aware that there are a lot of "rules" (some of our neighbors were a little unhappy about that), but if you are looking for quiet and laid-back then it is perfect. Would be nice if the owners of this property would go to the expense of a walk-in shower in at least one bathroom as both were very small and confined.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Interesting to hear you comment on 'a lot' of rules and someone complaining about that. ALL communities have rules so as to keep it nice for everyone. Not everyone arriving has the same set of ideas of courtesy etc Here is a short synopsis of the 'rules'.... 1. Guests need to check in at the gate when they arrive. 2. One vehicle per house as the driveways are short, and if you have a large truck it would need to be parked in the overflow lot. 3. 10 MPH speed limit in the park. 4. Each lot is private. 5. Quiet hours 11PM - 7AM 6. Bicyles after dark should have some type of lights or reflectors for safety as well as people walking should have flash lights, insurance and safety. 7. Your boat must be docked ONLY behind the unit you are renting. 8. Fireworks are prohibited 9. Parents are responsible for the safety and discipline of their children. 10. Pets must be kept on a leash. 11. No more than 6 person may occupy a unit. These are the rules and not too onerous for most people hopefully. Wonerderful little spot!
