Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

I come to The Lower Keys each December to fish and relax. My three requirements are on canal with ocean access, pool and dog friendly. My expectations were exceeded with the ice maker, foosball table, ping pong, kyack, bikes, etc. The kitchen also has everything you need. The one improvement I would make is replacing the double mattresses as they are not comfortable for an adult. However, I only had two people for a few days and it did not detract from my overall experience. This is a great property at a reasonable price.

Everything you need to enjoy the Keys

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and made for a great base camp to explore all the keys has to offer from our favorite key. The owner makes sure the process is painless and has thought of everything from having a ping pong table / foosball table to even having some extra common supplies around. This is a very safe and quiet private airport community . The occasional small plane using the runway is a real treat and the kids loved it. Staying here was a breeze and very enjoyable and we would definitely stay here again when we return to the keys. Thanks for everything and allowing us to make some great memories here!!!

Everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month at Flying Hogfish and were very pleased with the accommodation,the beautiful deck, and the refreshing pool. We enjoyed watching the planes come and go, it was not disruptive at all, rather entertaining. The location was perfect for walking and biking and if you enjoy fishing there were many opportunities to either fish from the bridges or go out on a boat. The actual house was well laid out, the owner has thought of everything. Definitely an excellent rating!!!!

Family Funstay

  • 4 of 5

Great house! Nicely laid out especially for family stays 3/2 split plan with plenty of room for everyone. Nice pool and top deck for BBQ's . The house was supplied with everything one would need except when we arrived there was no toilet paper or paper towels so make sure you grab those things before you arrive. The closet grocery store (big grocery store) is the Winn-Dixie as you get into Big Pine Key (about 12 miles N. of this house). I am giving our stay 4 stars because while the house was great the view from across the canal was rather disappointing. It was very industrial and loud early in the morning Monday thru Friday. Over-all we really enjoyed our time at this place!

Owner's Response: sorry for the lack of TP and PT the maid supposed to supply that with each rental from the stock I have there. I agree the house is across from US 1 but on the flip side there is only one neighbor. The house is quite soundproof and I can not hear the traffic from inside. Of course if your view was the ocean the price would reflect that

Perfect home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past week at the Flying Hogfish. We rented two homes in Summerland Key to accommodate our family. We ended up at the FH almost the whole time. It was perfect for entertaining. The layout of the home was great, pool super clean, home clean and very liveable. This is our second stay there and we will be booking the home again.

It was a great stay! The only thing I would like to have changed was having sun on the pool during the day for laying in the sun. The owner is very nice and will address any issues right away, we were there for a month stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you So much for my first review! Many quests have told me they loved the place but did not write a review. I am glad you enjoyed yourself there. That is the whole idea of a keys vacation. I will see if cutting the trees back will help bring in more sun on the pool. Thanks again.
