Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you for allowing us to stay in your house. The house was perfect for us. The only time we spent in the house was sleeping, your ChickeeHut was fantastic. The fishing was great. The manatees in the canal on our last night capped off a perfect week for us. I am hoping we can get back down there next year and I will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Thanks again,

Great rental home!

  • 5 of 5

Mercy is great to work with, her communication is great and she is kind. It's easy to see that she and her family have put a lot of time and effort into making their Keys home warm and welcoming for their guests. This house had everything we needed, plus more. The beds were clean, comfortable, and spacious. We really enjoyed the back yard. The kids loved the pool, the hot tub was nice, there was plenty of seating and plenty of ways to relax and have fun, all without leaving the back yard. We especially enjoyed watching the iguanas, fish, jelly fish, and especially the manatee in the canal. My children all agreed this was the best place we have ever rented. The house isn't huge, but we never felt cramped. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a peaceful keys vacation.

Another Wonderful Experience

We stayed in Mercy's home in November and couldn't wait to return. We were able to get away for a another week and enjoyed ourselves very much. Their home is very welcoming clean and comfortable. We hope to return again someday.

Perfect for our family! Everything as described and very clean.

  • 5 of 5

This is the only way to visit the keys. The house was great, kept very clean, no smells; the backyard, absolutely fabulous! Beds were very comfortable, nice pillows. The kids' bed and bath had plenty of room for our 3 teens to live and relax, with the 3 beds and a futon to sit on too, way better than a hotel. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook your meals, including spices. :) Everything worked, spa was great, outdoor TV, pool was very clean and beautiful. Location was excellent, we were close to everything, groceries, restaurants, huge park, and all activities; snorkeling, fishing, beaches, even the drive to Key West for sunset dinner was not too far. Thank you Mercy for keeping such a welcoming home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review to our property. It is a pleasure to serve our loyal customers, and your mom have been such a great guest. I was very happy to be able to accommodate her in advance when she got stranded in the airport. I will send you soon the item you left behind, sorry it has taken long but I need to go down to the Keys. I really appreciate guests that treat me as a family. thanks again and please come back soon

Wish we could keep this home a secret

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness what a wonderful little cottage. It was perfect for my husband and I. The home was as advertised and the pictures were a true representation of what you will experience. We spent all of our time in the back yard on the canal. It came with a very large Tiki Hut which included plenty of seating space and providing the much needed shade for the very hot days when we were there. The Tiki Hut provided a bar, a TV and a large powerful fan for a nice breeze as well as a hammock. I was thrilled to catch a 4 ft. nurse shark as well as two more smaller ones. I caught snapper and many other fish. (catch and release). The yard also had a great above ground pool which was great for cooling off. It also had a laundry room, outdoor bath and shower, fish station, outdoor kitchen. What else could you ask for. On the inside there were two bedrooms and two bath as well as three TV's. The home was nicely decorated, the air conditioning worked very well, the King size bed was very comfy and it had tiled floors. The house had plenty of towels and anything else you could possibly need. Azalea cottage was conveniently located in Islamorada with a couple of restaurants at the corner and a market at the corner (within walking distance). Did I mention that it was immaculate? Unfortunately we could only get away for eight days but we plan to return. I would highly recommend this little vacation spot and know that you will be as happy with your choice as we were. Thank you to Mercy who provided excellent customer service and was a joy to deal with.

Love this cottage and all it has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot express how happy our family was this summer vacation! We spent more time outside enjoying the wonderful amenities than we did inside the house! Had everything we could possibly need. Mercy was so wonderful and responsive the few times I had to contact her. We will definitely rent again! Love it!!!
