It is a special happy hideaway to go to relax and enjoy the ocean breezes while you sleep or to read a book while the sun sets. Monthly and season rentals are welcome. Large in ground heated/cooled swimming pool (cooled when it is very hot out to comfortable temperature). My Wife and I love this place and we looked at all of the condo complexes in the upper Keys before we bought this one. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation for yourself or your family then this is the place. Please email for more information or questions.

Keywords: Secured, gated 4th floor condo unit with private panoramic ocean views. A really great location with views and access to the beach, pool, and great sunsets each and almost every day. Easy access to a lot of amenities including : water sports, boating, fishing, great local restaurants and bars, shopping centers (e.g. Publix, Kmart, CVS, Walgreens, Starbucks, movie theaters, marinas, etc.) and an easy drive to other Florida Keys. The nicest unit in the complex and in the area; its private, well maintained and has the views and appeals of no other. Highly recommended place for families who want a vacation that’s quiet and where there’s easy access to lots of sun and activities for everyone of all ages.

Great View, Condo DIrty

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed our time, beautiful balcony views and sunsets, except for 4th of July weekend at the RV park next door, very quiet and private. But there are a few negatives. By far, the most disappointing was the cleanliness. It appears that has been an issue in the past with renters per your VRBO review. “the reason for the 3-4 Star rating is due to how dirty the rental was when we arrived.” I would suggest you consider better management or oversight regarding cleaning. Even when we complained, a lady came and dusted a few ceiling fans and left. My 70-year-old Mom and I gave up and cleaned the condo ourselves. Spending $40+ on cleaning supplies and 6+ hours on my vacation was not exactly our idea of fun. It had been a LONG TIME since someone moved any furniture, cleaned under anything at all, deep cleaned the showers, etc. There is still more grime – in closets, inside drawers, inside kitchen cabinets and drawers, etc. but we gave up. There is a major problem with the master shower doors that were not cut/installed correctly. After buying silicone and your guy trying to repair, we gave up and have to wash/dry an extra towel every time one of us used the master shower. No TV in the master even though advertised. DVD Player does not work. No family movie nights in the “theater chairs” instead, only 2 people could watch in my laptop. No Sleeper Sofa. Clothes Dryer timer inop. Toaster Oven knob broken. Need cutting board beyond the glass one. Knives not sharp. Sheets have tears and bleach spots. Master bed has queen cover on it, not king size. Need kayak especially since the jellyfish don’t allow much as far as snorkeling or swimming from the dock. Fishing poles broken. Many items need fixed with caulk, glue, little paint, tape to close peeling wallpaper, and just cleaning. I asked my son to collect the garbage bags and he actually cut his hand. The master bathroom garbage can (plastic) was ripped into shreds. For the next 2-3 days hurt him when he put in water so couldn’t swim and I had to wash him with his hands out of the bathtub so it would not give pain. This was infuriating, because a small bathroom garbage can costs $1-2 from the dollar store. I sent this e-mail to the owner and rental agent and after 2 months, no one answered it. I respectfully asked for refund of the cleaning supplies I paid for and a small discount for the various inconveniences we had to experience while here, but that was ignored.

Jaw dropping views!!!! Million dollar view!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, and I stayed in Steve's condo for the month of July 2015. We absolutely LOVED his place. We have stayed in many units in Florida and his, by far, was the best. The amenities were outstanding---reclining sofas, flat screen TVs, washer, dryer, very comfy bed in master bedroom, just to name a few. The location is great---grocery stores, and water activities were close. It was very simple to check out the other Keys as well. The only suggestion I would have for Steve would be to make arrangements to have a kayak on the property. The association would not allow us to rent one and leave it on the near the water without paying an additional fee. We are hoping to come back soon!

A Little Piece of Heaven! (make that a Big Piece!)

  • 5 of 5

Our jaws dropped and we were speechless when we saw the view as we walked straight from the front door out to the lanai upon arrival! The condo was perfect! Our stay here couldn't have been better from beginning to end! From the bedroom, living room, and kitchen the view looks like a picture postcard! We were and are still enchanted. Now to the condo! It's so inviting in every way, complete with comfortable inviting furniture, a fantastic entertainment system, spacious master with lots of storage and a walk in closet, and two baths that are comfortable. The second bedroom also has a huge closet where there are fishing rods, various balls, drying racks and extra bedding. It doesn't have a view but does have two comfortable beds with trundles, and a large dresser! The kitchen is stocked well, has a serviceable electric stove, side by side frig/freezer, and ice maker. There is a medium sized dining table with four chairs which we rarely used as the lanai called us! The tile floor throughout made for easy Swifer style cleaning which was helpful as we had our cat with us. There was a breeze from the bay keeping the need for AC to a minimum. There is a washer and dryer in the condo as well. The boat dock directly in front of the condo is cause of some dirt that sifts through the screens. When we were there a huge machine moved many boats in and out of the water.The sediment can easily be taken care of with a dry swifer, and is certainly manageable, and no more than regular upkeep. The hurricane glass silders on the lanai were hugely helpful during the one torrential rain storm we had, as the lanai was safe and usable throughout nature's wild show! We LOVED our time there and plan to return, only wishing it could be for more time. Sky views from the lanai from dawn until nighttime rival any we've ever seen. The owner is extremely helpful in every way, and immediately responsive to my questions. (way too many!) The entire community is welcoming, and we spent many glorious hours in the deep and warm pool. The plantings are luscious and beautifully maintained making you feel like you're on a Caribbean island! Kayaking and fishing are incredible here and the water is crystal clear. Have I mentioned how much we loved it? Well, we did, and can hardly wait to go back!

Loved the layout and view

  • 3 of 5

We stayed two months at this condo in Rock Harbor. The community is beautiful and the view from the unit was awesome. However, the reason for the 3-4 Star rating is due to how dirty the rental was when we arrived. The floors and table tops looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a long while. Fingerprints and crumbs everywhere. The kitchen appliances, coffee maker, stove top, oven, and trash compactor were greasy and sticky to the touch. The vacuum did not work, and no cleaning supplies were available. The spare bedroom rug smelled like dog pee, plus there was dried-up dog (?) vomit stuck to the floor in the Master bedroom. Someone had been there to change the beds and clean the bathrooms though, which was a plus. To be fair, I don't think the above was due to the owners neglect, but due to poor management of his property. SOMEONE DROPPED THE BALL! We had to buy a new vacuum plus cleaning supplies to make the place comfortable for our needs. Spending a day of cleaning was not what I expected! We left several messages to the Agent (via phone and e-mail) to call us, but no response.

I do hope the owner will take notice of my review, as his condo rating should and could have been so much higher.

Wonderful balcony with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were blessed to spend the month of July at this condo in Rock Harbor. This unit is very nice and well equipped with everything we needed for the month. The grounds are beautiful and there are a lot of shaded walking trails. Very tropical!! The pool is very close and convenient as we made daily trips there with our 3 kids. We also made multiple daily trips to the boat ramp where we were greeted by the most amazing sea life. The balcony is huge and has wonderful views of the bay and unbelievable sunsets. Overall, it was a very relaxing vacation...an adventure we will remember forever.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed there in March and we really enjoyed the unit. It was very well maintained and we felt right at home, The views were unbelievable, right on the water and sleeping with the sounds of the ocean is really relaxing. We fished a lot and the location was great as it was close to all the major fishing marinas. We plan to go back to the same unit again soon this yeat. It is obvious that the owners really care for this place and treat is as a second home not as a rental. Worth it for the price,
