Great location in Key Largo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice 2-bedroom home centrally located in Key Largo. Close to many restaurants and activities (dive shop, bike rentals, other water sports right across the street). Clean and comfortable - all as described in the listing. We visit the keys every year if we can, and will add this to our list of places to return again.

Great little House

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with all amenities included. Interesting neighborhood with lots going on. Can walk along the canal and watch the boats going out. Check out the African Queen and walk down to Skippers for lunch and dinner and Sharkeys for breakfast. A further walk takes you to the local park and all kinds of activities. Walked there everyday with our dog. Dog was happy at the house and also at doggie daycare at the Pet Motel. We would definitely go back.

Beautifull house in great location

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice and well and lovely furnished house. You fell like home there. And the owner David was super, he cares for everthing you need immediatly. The house is fantastic for divers because right across the street is a diving center and you can start your diving trips from there. But also for families it is a great place, nice beaches are only 5 min. far away with car and only 2 min. walk you find a lot of ships which provide fishing tours or glas bottom ship tours to the reefs. We had a great time there. Thank you to David!

Cozy convenient and well equipped cottage great for couples or family.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at this recently rennovated cottage. The location is very convenient - just off the highway near mile mark 100. The bedrooms were set up as promised and the kitchen has wnough pots and pans to give you the option tonest in.

The owners were available when we needed them for information and advice. We had a hot water problem and they were on top of it immediately - installing a new water heater.

We will be back. It was great fun and very easy.
