Little Conch Key is a hidden treasure of tranquility on a private island. Historically established as a fishing camp in 1940 we have a full maintenance staff and cleaning staff to assist you with all of your needs while you are on vacation. We are here and on call 24 hours a day for any emergency that may arise.
Location - This home is in the Heart of the Florida Keys. Just a short ride to Key West or to Key Largo, right in the middle of it all. Swim with dolphins, manatees and turtles. Excellent fishing and breath- taking sunsets.
Sited within a Natural Conservation Zone in the Florida Keys, this gorgeous waterfront retreat is truly inspirational and rich with natural beauty.
We had a great experience in Conch Key. We will definitely return on a future vacation. The house came with a golf cart for getting around the Key. A continental breakfast was included as well. The house was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and informative. The accommodations and pool were both wonderful with plenty of room for our entire family.
Our family of 14 came together to celebrate a 70th Birthday, our group was from age 8 to 70. Not only did we stay in the Mangrove Villa but also rented a cottage closest to the Villa (Periwinkle ) to accommodate our large group. The house was absolutely beautiful and just as the pictures show. As mentioned in the previous comment there were a few very minor issues but the pool/spa timer was taking care quickly for us and we had no other complaints. The setting was picturesque. The house provides a space for everyone, you could find a quiet corner for yourself and plenty of gathering areas for the entire group. Each bedroom having an ensuite was perfect. The paddle boards and kayaks were perfect additions for entertainment for a group. I have rented many homes through VBRO and this one is outstanding. The description represents it very well.
We decided to stay at this home for a week during our yearly Florida Keys trip because the pictures and descriptions online looked nice. Once we got to the house, we realized the house was in fact very nice and the location was good too. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean. However, after being there for less than 24 hours we realized that a lot of the light bulbs inside and outside of the house needed to be replaced. Also after a day of staying there, the dishwasher quit working and would not drain water and the pool/spa heat was programmed to automatically come on even after repeatedly turning the heat off daily. We were told the dishwasher was repaired after sending maintenance to the house, but it never did get fixed. And maintenance could not figure out how to turn OFF the pool/spa heat. Patti told us we would be refunded a certain amount of money for the dishwasher issue, but I would recommend to anyone wanting to stay at this house - make sure these items are fixed before staying there.
For the amount of $$$ I paid its not worth it.
First of all I reached @ 4:30pm to check in and front office says I have to wait a hour they are still cleaning the property. It clearly says check in time is 4pm.
Second the kitchen sink doesn't drain properly at all, I had to call to get someone to fix that problem, when the plumber came he is blaming the people who install this sink.
Third the ice maker in the kitchen does not work which I called to the office and they said they will send someone, nobody came.
Forth the washing machine in the laundry room door doesn't close properly I had to take a chair to help close it.
Fifth the remote controls for the TV doesn't work at all you have to manually turn it on/off and volume
Sixth the golf cart doesn't work at all, I called the office they said to use the one next door and that one don't work either
Seventh suddenly they decide to trim all the trees and landscaping while I was there they took nearly one whole day to clean the properly, that is not right if I'm paying top dollars to enjoy the property.
Seventh when I went to return the keys to the front office I address these issue and they replied " we are aware of these issue the last tenant had the same issue"
All I have to say is if you are willing to pay the $$$ to stay in the Mangroove house ITS NOT WORTH IT, ITS A BIGGG RIPP OFF
THEY DON'T CARE WHICH IS NOT RIGHT THEY SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE NEWS
Overall, our experience was positive. It was a pleasure working with Patti; she always followed up on things immediately.
The pool and hot tub was dirty on our arrival. Patti had it serviced the next day and the pool guy told us there were almost no chemicals in the pool. There was not a tool there for us to skim off leaves and critters. There was also no pole for rescues. We were given a big packet of information, but there were no instruction for running the pool and spa. The kids enjoyed the pool and the adults enjoyed the hot tub.
We were not given the wifi key on check in. We had to wait until the next morning when the office reopened to get it.
The house was cleaner than expected. The elevator worked well and made it easy to get to the master. We found a few maintenance issues. One light in the powder room was crooked and could not be straightened. There was a chair with very bent legs which should have been removed. There were a couple of outdoor chairs that had broken seats. Several wall sockets were in need of replacement. The door locks were crazy. We had a hard time keeping one door in the master closed. Every time the wind blew, it would pop open.
The dock had very shallow water and lots of sea grass. It was not really unusable. The house next door was within feet of our house. Plantings were nice and helped separate the two homes.
The kitchen was very disappointing. It had top notch appliances but was very poorly equipped. When we got there, there was only one small cutting board. There were no trivets for setting hot dishes on and no pot holders. There was not a wine bottle opener or plastic cups that could go to the pool area. There was only one set of wine glasses and no other bar ware. The ice maker had a Rube Goldberg way to stay closed. It did not work very well. Consequently, the ice maker was running continuously throwing off a lot of heat.
We celebrated our 50th anniversary with family members at the Mangrove House. It was absolutely wonderful. The house is top notch construction, master bedroom to die for, outdoor pool half in sun and half under house. Staff very willing to accommodate you. Spent most of week outdoors on upper level patio looking at spectacular views. Already booked next year's vacation there!
Other family and friends booked two cottages so we could all be together. They loved the quaintness and relaxing atmosphere.
Only improvement would be better water pressure in kitchen and master bath. Living room furniture "well-used". However, it does get a lot of use!
This home is located on a private island just off Conch Key called Little Conch Key. There are two luxurious homes at the far end of the island. They each offer incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean. This is the ideal area to get away from it all. Here you will find blue waters and beautiful scenery. This is the perfect location for kayaking or paddle boarding. The home is just a couple miles from the world famous Dolphin Research Center. Here you can swim with the dolphins and much more.
