Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening your house to us this week. Staying here on the Key made the tournament worthwhile. When we first arrived, it was obvious where each kid would stay - our daughter loves little girl stuff, so the hello kitty room was good for her. One son has a loft bed at home, so the upper bunk was his first choice. Our second son is adult size so the other room was good for him. Our room was obvious, and i wish i had that closet and master bath in our house.

We had an interesting brush with greatness while at dinner at Gran Inka, just as we were about to leave I saw Serena (Williams) looking at the menu to take-out. I recommended something to her coach as my wife snapped a pic with her phone. It was the highlight of the week that we would not have had if not staying on the island.

Thanks again for your help and your hospitality. Everyone was happy with the week (which is a tall order for my family)."

All the comforts of home in the perfect setting!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 stayed here over the holidays and loved it. The house is stocked with games, movies, and toys, along with paper products, pantry staples etc. - made for a very easy vacation and the few problems we had, were immediately fixed by the owners. Location is perfect, we split our time betweeen relaxing on the island (both the nearby beach, and the pool at the house) and going into Miami / South Beach for meals and sight seeing. Some highlights on the island included: golf cart trips to the gelato shop, wine store or boulangerie for breakfast, as well as spa treatments and meals at the nearby Ritz (which offered great service and much better food than other Ritz properties we've visited). Walking to the beach at midnight on NY eve and seeing the fireworks without the hassle of any crowds was the icing on the cake! Highly recommend this property / owners - felt like we were truly your guests for the week, so thank you for a lovely stay!!

A great stay for our family.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. We had a large group and the owners were very helpful in accommodating our needs. The pool was wonderful and the kids spent hours playing in it. The proximity to the beach, along with the use of the club were wonderful.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

It was an amazing vacation. The house is great and very comfortable. The owners are welcoming and always helpful, and the Grand Bay Club membership is a great addition to the house. We've came here for 2 years in a row now and hope to come back again next spring. :)

Spring Vacation amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing. The owners walked us through everything we needed and gave us great recommendations for restaurants and things to do with the kids. Our family enjoyed our spring break vacation so much no one wanted to leave! It was close to the park, great area for all of us to bike, shopping nearby and the beach! The owners kept the house extremely well maintained and were always available if we had questions. The home was well located when we needed to visit other towns and to watch our daughter's swim meet. We highly recommend this vacation home. It surpassed our expectation and we look forward to visiting again. Thank you!

From the perfectly appointed setting to the attentiveness of the homeowners, our vacation was a huge enjoyable success! The house accommodated our whole family and was extremely comfortable. The location was central and ideal to beach access, as well as local shopping. Totally exceeded our expectations and cant wait to come back!
