Why Kenneth Schreiber chose Upper Florida Keys

We owned property on Plantation Key already but when we saw this one available we fell in love with the open living space, cute cottage style and at home style amenities

HIdden Gem in Plantation Key

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four weeks in the rental. Let me say, it was better than we could have expected. The owner was quick to address any questions or concerns. It was like a home away from home. The furnishings were nice, master bed was great, full kitchen that we used extensively, dockage perfect for most any boat. Located about 2 miles from groceries and drug store, hardware stores, etc. a few miles further south is Islamorada...docakge on canal; that is minutes from Tavernier Creek providing easy access to both the back bay and the Atlantic and its reefs. Next time we do a vacation in the keys...it WILL be here...

My husband and I rented the house for the month of February. It was the most wonderful time we have had in long time. The place was great, exactly how it was pictured and described. It was close to everything we wanted to do and just a walk across the street to a little grocery store. The highlight of our trip was waking up and having coffee with the manatee's every morning. They would be just hanging out in the canal. I would recommend this place to anyone and I can't wait to book again for next year!

Great Vacation Spot in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great vacation in the keys over the Thanksgiving holiday. This cottage in Islamorada was perfect. The description and photos accurately reflect the appearance and amenities.

When we first arrived, we automatically noticed how the cottage was clean, updated, and well-maintained. We loved the backyard, which is on a canal with a relaxing pergola and hammock. The owners were extremely helpful and easy to contact with any questions and/or concerns. There is a great restaurant right by the cottage with yummy food and drinks. Make sure you check out all the local restaurants/bars. The owners provided us with a great list of places. Also, we drove down to Key West one day too, it was a beautiful drive. We were able to bring our golden retriever. All of the bars/restaurants are pet-friendly and we really enjoyed taking her everywhere with us. Also, check out Anne's Beach. It's a free beach with canopies right on the Atlantic Ocean and again pet-friendly.

One morning we saw three manatees in the canal behind the cottage. That afternoon one manatee came right up to where we were sitting. It was an amazing experience!!

We would recommend this amazing cottage to any friends or relatives. We know you will love it just as much as we did.

across the street from a small grocery store which is next to a famous fish sandwich restaurant-Craigs. I love their huge chicken sandwich! Winn-Dixie is one mile away. Best happy hour is at Hog Heaven-about 83 mile marker, oceanside.
