About Elizabeth

Hello my name is Elizabeth! I was born and raised here in the Sunshine State by my wonderful parents. I currently attend Florida International University and hope in one day becoming a child psychologist. I come from a mixed background. My mother is European while my father is Hispanic. I speak two languages fluently: English and Spanish, and can understand a little Russian. I hope I can get to know you and create an unforgettable vacation for you and your family! :)

Elizabeth purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Elizabeth chose Central Florida Keys

From the moment I saw this house I knew it looked familiar, I've seen it in my dreams. This house may be just a couple miles away from my permanent home but going there is like disconnecting from the world. Your worries vanish, stress is no where to be seen, and best of all, I turn my cell phone off. From watching the exotic birds flying around, to just watching boats go by, this house creates a worry free environment.

What makes this cottage unique

This home has a huge terrace up on the third floor with a beautiful panoramic ocean view which is great for nailing that perfect tan you've been wanting. The second floor which is also where your paradise apartment will be also has a huge terrace where you can have brunch with the family in or just sit and relax and watch the boats go by.

A wonderful time a Vacation Tide!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at this property on Grassy Key. The home is beautiful, has amazing decor, is impeccably clean and has the best view from the back of the house. The home has everything you could want and need for your stay. My family enjoyed using the kayaks, watching the birds in the mud flats at low tide, and beautiful skies in the early morning and later in the evening. The home was the perfect size for our stay and again the view can't be beat! I would definitely like to stay here again on a future trip back to the Keys. There is so much to do in the area. We visited Aquarium Encounters, EAA Air Museum, took a ride in a biplane, and visited Coco Plum Beach and Curry Hammock Nature Trail.

A home from home on the edge of the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a very comfortable house. Coming from Germany for the first time to Florida, we found a very clean villa (spotless!) and enjoyed all the amenities it offers: a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and sofas, various outside seating, a gas BBQ, a hot tub, bikes and kayaks as well as beach equipment. We have stayed in a lot of holiday homes over the last twenty years but this has been the best one so far. The views are spectacular, especially the sheet lighting when it is dark. Sitting in the warm Florida Keys air with a cold beer or a nice Scotch and watching the Ocean was a delight. We were able to use the kayaks all day even at low tide (then you just have to pull them some meters to the deeper water). The Ocean is shallow and you cannot swim right at the house but that is something which you do not expect in the Keys. However, very nice beaches are nearby: Curry Hammock State Park (10-15 minutes by bike) and Sombrero Beach (first class!) in Marathon (10 minutes by car). The house is in one mile distance to the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key which provides an excellent opportunity to swim with the dolphins. Marathon is a perfect base for exploring the Keys. It offers a lot of nice bars and restaurants and shopping opportunities. Key West is just one hours drive away. We went there for a night and visited Dry Tortugas by speed boat - one of the highlight of our trip! The owner responded very quickly to every question we had. This home is thus highly recommended!

Awesome vacation with a awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean comfortable house right on the water. Excellent base to explore all of the Keys, mid way between everything. We all slept well and enjoyed the down time spent at the house, WIFI was nice. There's a TV but I don't know what channels are on it since we never turned it on. Plenty of room on the 3 levels for people to relax on and have some quite time. Kayaks were nice except the tide was so low at times you had to time when you used them but that's the ocean. BBQ was nice for grilling out fresh catch. We'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Great place to get away and relax!

  • 5 of 5

The views are awesome the sunrise from second floor porch and the sunset from the rooftop deck to the moonrise over the ocean from the hot tub. The home is very clean up to date and nicely furnished inside and out. Great job to the owner!

The house and property was everything we were hoping it would be. The pictures, location, and all of the amenities were great as well as the ease of getting in and out of the home for check in!! Thanks again for letting us enjoy the sunrises in this home!!

Many beach options, most of them free. Curry Hammock is the closest and there's a slight fee to get in but they have kayaks you can use. Many restaurants serving great seafood and non seafood. This home is in the heart of the Florida keys so where ever you wish to go, you're in the center of all the action. Duval St in Key West, just 56 miles from home, has many night clubs, bars, restaurants, tours, and museums to go to. Tours including ferry's, parasailing, diving, or just taking a cruise around the islands.
