Shangri-La 3 Bedroom 3 Baths Gulf Front Estate
Vacation Rentals of the Florida Keys
Vrbo made easy.
Dated. Living area was not accommodating for family.
Thank you for your review, we did notice that you guys brought the lazy boys and other comfortable chairs to the living room area to have more sitting area. Glad that you guys were able to do that. We do have more of a movie night set up in the den area with new lazy boys and full size sofa.
Breathtaking view in a great location!
This was truly an awesome home and location for our family vacation. The house offers beautiful ocean views especially from the upstairs master bedroom. Most mornings we would sit out on the balcony enjoying the view and drinking our coffee. The kitchen had everything we needed and ample space so many "cooks" could be in there without tripping on each other. We loved the game room area as it's own separate space (and the full length ocean views). The poker table was perfect for our nightly card or dice games. The landscaping was well taken care of and it provided us with many beautiful backgrounds for pictures. The pool was great for us. We are a family with older teenagers/young adults so we used the pool primarily for playing pool volleyball or just cooling down. The house is located less than 1/2 mile from Walgreens, walking distance, and about 2 1/2 miles from the grocery store which was convenient. The airport is very close and has a nice bike/running path around it for our 4 mile runs. Night time was perfect for sitting out especially since they have an automatic mosquito system.
We had decided against renting a boat and instead rented paddle boards and a kayak from Keys Kayak. This was the best decision. The water was very calm with no big waves to deal with. The water in the bay went from very shallow to very deep quickly. We enjoyed paddle boarding out to find stuff and going around the nearby island. Because it is so deep right by the dock, several times a day we would have a pair of dolphins swimming in there. Sometimes they would come up not far from us while we were on our paddle boards. The house is near the end of a canal where the manatees hang out but sometimes they paid us a visit to get a nice fresh water hose down. We saw horseshoe crabs which are very unusual as at first we thought they were sting rays. Oh, we also saw those. We saw lots of nurse sharks sometimes near the dock and discovered near the rocks by the end of the canal a bunch of baby nurse sharks. We also saw lots of baracuda. It became a rule that we couldn't come in from paddle boarding unless we saw a shark. They often were in or around the same locations so it became easy to find or avoid. Despite that, we still enjoyed jumping into the ocean right off the dock. We had several iquana guests to watch.
Again, great location with so much to explore. Would go again.
I am so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay the way you did Barb. This really means a lot to us.
You guys were great to host and you guys really took care of the home. Hope to see you on your next Keys Vacation.
Great Home on the Gulf
Nice Home, great location. Master Bathroom Cabinets needs
work. It would be nice if the plastic was left off the dinning room chairs. 3rd Bedroom had no built in closet. Jessenia was very nice to deal with.
It was my pleasure to deal with you as well. I am happy to say that we have added a portable closet for the guest bedroom and the master drawer board that needed cosmetic repair has been replace . Thank You so much for taking the time to write a review and we hope to see you on your next vacation.
