About Rick Altra

Come visit our home and make it yours for however long you can stay. We are from Michigan, but now live in the Keys year round. The weather in the Keys makes it beautiful year-round, and we love the blue and green colors of the ocean. Leave the snow behind for a weekend, a week, or a month or more.

Rick Altra purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Rick Altra chose Lower Florida Keys

We love this property because we can sit on the deck and fish, or just gaze at the Ocean and island located right off the end of the canal. You have everything you need and more, which is so much better than staying in a hotel!

What makes this cottage unique

Being located in the lower keys on the small island of Cudjoe Key, you can get away from the traffic and noise of Key West or larger islands, but....you are close enough to take a beautiful drive and be amidst the best of everything the islands have to offer. A month is still not long enough to see everything, so keep coming back year after year.

Quiet, secure neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

If you are going to the Keys to relax this may be worth renting. Home is clean but definitely needs updating and some minor repairs. No TV's in bedrooms and a 32 inch TV in the living room. I enjoy watching sports in the evening and the home didn't get 1 sports channel. Only basic local channels. I contacted owner and was told they often have trouble with the cable and I could drive 20 minutes to a sports bar to watch sports. After 5 nights we packed up and left 2 days early.

Location...we landed up doing a lot of driving to go shopping or eat.

This lovely little get-away was as described. Clean, pleasant, it served us and our dogs well.

  • 5 of 5

Rick was very responsive to all questions in a timely fashion. The space was clean, and very functional. We had a stress-free , relaxed time. Thank you!. Nice to be right on the water, easy walk to a wonderful pool, and a saltwater swimming place in the ocean.

House was clean, pleasant, as described.

Thanks!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our five night get away! From the minute you walk in the door it is easy to see it is well cared for, and has everything you could possibly need. The décor was beautiful, the home was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The view from the patio was beyond peaceful in the morning for the sunrise and in the evening for star gazing. We will definitely rent this home again on our next trip to the Keys.

Nice and economical

  • 4 of 5

This place is great value for the money, very economical. Was lacking pots and pans, the bed was adequate and the coffee maker was a cheap 4 cup coffee maker. Very basic cable, but not a big deal as your out all day anyways, not down there to watch tv. Other than those few little inconveniences the place was as displayed in ad. If your looking for a nice comfortable place that is economical and a bit dated, this would be the place for you. To get all the extras, it would cost much more and myself, didn't think it necessary.
