About Jim

My hobby and passion is making our property very special for our guests. Come enjoy!

Why Jim chose Key Largo

Best place in Florida to vacation with your family. The Florida Keys have the least amount of yearly rainfall in Florida. My family has lived in Key Largo for 40 years. We take pride providing an environment for you and your family to have great fun, family experiences, and life long memories. Family is #1.............

What makes this house unique

Peace, privacy, and tranquility. Nature at its best. Fish and feed the tarpon, mangrove snapper, parrot fish, look downs, grunts, trigger fish, pinfish (fish food provided) from the Tiki Hut and 180' concrete dock on 2 canals. Swim, kayak, canoe, and boat from the dock. Sit under the Tiki Hut and enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and your favorite beverage. Grill out on the large stainless steel gas grill and/or the weber charcoal grill.

Loved This House!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paradise Place last week and absolutely had a blast! Our boys loved being right on the water and able to grab a kayak or canoe and take off towards the Bay or creek. They told me that the house was "Awesome!" Fishing is good in the canal with lots of mangrove snappers in there...but they are smart little fish! The water is so clear you can see them down on the bottom. For those of you who are fishermen...the property has good tackle to use right there in the house...not junky stuff! Wish I had left my pole at home! The owner Jim is a pleasure to deal with, and no surprises. When he says he has bikes and snorkel equipment, i think there is enough for 10 people! Literally! Like others have said, the landscaping is done in such a way that you really do not see neighboring properties - very secluded! It was neat seeing the iguanas come over and lay in the sun. While we did not see the manatees while we were there, we did keep a close look out for them. We did see one down in Islamorada though. My only wish was that we had rented the boats also because we could have snorkeled everyday instead of going out with dive operators. We particularly enjoyed Cheeca Rocks and Alligator Reef under the lighthouse. Save yourself some time at the end of the days to get in a kayak and head down the creek...very scenic through the mangroves!! Thanks Jim for your hospitality!

Paradise Place was truly paradise for our three families. Clean and bright with great a/c and well-equipped kitchen. Upon our arrival a mother manatee and her calf drifted past the dock-beautiful! Plenty of equipment for our 4 teenagers to enjoy-kayaks, bikes and floats. We also rented the Grady-White and spent hours out on the sounds and mangroves fishing and sightseeing. The fish were also biting right at the dock-we are enjoying snapper this evening-just needed a fishing pole (provided) and some bait! We were close to Jimmy Johnson's Big Chill and enjoyed several evenings there for drinks, music and the sunset. Pennekamp State Park is right down the highway and we went out on their snorkeling trip-great experience for the entire family! The property is beautiful and we just needed a trip to the local Publix grocery store to pick up provisions-everything else was there for us to have a relaxing vacation in Key Largo.

A great place in a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay! The place was in a great location, was clean, was amazingly well-cared for, and had a lot of extras to ensure the experience was a good one! We spent a lot of time on kayaks, in the boat, and hanging out under the tiki hut in the back. It was a relaxing time in a great place. Jim was the best possible host, taking care of us without a complaint. I highly recommend!!

It Really Is Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying the name is Spot On!!! For starters the house is very clean, well maintained, and roomy! The landscaping is awesome, it gives you so much privacy. On our visit which was on May19th-26th 2018 we seen so much! We had visits from 3 Manatees (2 were mama and her baby), 5 Iguanas hung out with us(They love lettuce, bananas, and tomatoes), we had a 3 foot nurse shark show up, and we had daily visits from the neighborhood cat. We loved the fact that you walk out the door and go fishing! We caught many fish! All different types even a small Baracuda! We went kayaking which was a great time. The TIKI HUT is a great touch!! We spent many hours either watching TV, listening to the radio, or just sitting back and relaxing! Jim has thought of everything to make sure your stay will be enjoyable! If you can think of it, Jim probably has it!! I highly recommend this piece of Paradise and hopefully in the future get to enjoy it again!! Thanks Jim it was AWESOME!!!

Truly an unforgettable experience.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO rental and I don't think the bar could have been set any higher. On our first night, we were visited my a mother and baby Manatee. On the urging of a neighbor we gave the mother some fresh water as she needed it to produce milk for her young. She eagerly gulped away, and here we were, so close to this amazing creature. We bought lobster and crab from the Winn Dixie, and had an amazing BBQ every night. We visited the Pennekamp state park, and came home to this slice of heaven. We thoroughly enjoyed the tiki hut, and I went biking, and kayaking daily. We also had the chance to use some of the snorkel equipment. On the last night, the air conditioner stopped working. Jim comped us the last night of the stay. What an amazing property owner. We left lots of booze and goodies behind! It was only 4 nights, but I had more fun here, than at some resorts. I'm already dreaming of going back.
