About Debbie Winters

I grew up on a Lake in Northern New Jersey, moved to South Florida for two years at the age of 25 and that is when I discovered the Florida Keys. I remember visiting Holiday Isle in Islamorada for the First time. It was an outdoor playground for adults with the Reggae band playing, Rum Runners flowing and a variety of Tiki Bars. Shortly after moving back to NJ I met my future husband. It did not take me long to bring him to the Keys and show him my favorite playground. He is a contractor from Suffern New York. I remember showing him the Tiki Bars at Holiday Isle and asking him if he could build something like this! He said Yes! We were engaged in Key West January of 1996 and Married September of 1996. Purchased our primary home in Suffern, New York August of 1997 and by November of 1999 purchased our Villa in Duck Key. In 2001 we put a Pool in our backyard of New York property and the following year started building our Tiki Bar and transforming our yard to a Tropical Paradise. Anyone that comes over for a party can't believe they are in Suffern, New York. We both love the Keys and our life style really shows that. We live in Suffern, New York with our Siberian Husky Tiki! We are on to the next chapter of our life. Sold home in Suffern New York and now live in Jacksonville, Florida with our dog Tiki which will allow us to get to our special retreat in Duck Key more often!

Debbie Winters purchased this villa in 1999

Why Debbie Winters chose Duck Key

We have been traveling to the Keys for over 20 Years and love the laid back tropical atmosphere The Florida Keys have to offer. Just when you think you have seen it all a new hidden gem appears.

What makes this villa unique

We were very blessed to purchase this property as new construction. When we started looking at property in the Keys never dreamed we would be purchasing new construction with our very own private patio complete with spa overlooking a Blue Water Lagoon! As soon as the Contracts were signed we started dreaming about our relaxing Happy Hours sipping a tropical drink on the Patio dipping into the splash pool after a fun filled day on the boat or beach!

Deceived and very dissapointed

  • 1 of 5

I have never had such an awful experience.

At first the reservation went well, spoke to Debbie on the phone and she was very nice. She even offered us a late check out that I very much appreciated. The reservation came with a marina slip that I have no complains with.

We got to the Villa on Friday night and as soon as we turned on the lights we saw a roach, that was the beginning of many roach encounters throughout our weekend. I emailed and called Debbie and she advised me that they do monthly exterminating and there was nothing she could do as this was "normal" but she would send her property manager. I live in Florida, we have a home on the water and we have also stayed in Hawks Cay Villas many times and have never encountered this problem!

Neither, Debbie nor the property manager did anything to solve this problem! We were unable to store any food in the freezer because it had an awful fish smell that would stink up the whole kitchen just by opening the freezer door. We also advised her of this and she said the PM would take care of it. Nothing was done!

Our children were supposed to sleep on the sofa bed. It had dirty sheets, full of crumbs and even Popsicle sticks. The mattress pad was disgusting. My children had to sleep on an air mattress that I keep on the boat. I also advised her of this and nothing was done by the PM.

We finally got to the resort pool the next morning and the Resort Manager tells us that we are unable to use any of the property amenities because we booked directly through the owner. He said the owners know of this policy and that are forced to let the renters know. I read the ad many times even the section that states its a "resort" and has a "communal pool" which is a straight lie because you are not allowed to use it! I spoke to her on the phone and emailed with her as well as signed a contract and this was never informed. The contract states "Resort can deny access at their discretion" Which is fine and expected if you are obnoxious, vulgar, or not dressed appropriately. Not when she clearly knows that it has been their policy for 5 years! To make matters worse, when we called her from the front desk she said we should've known by the discounted price that amenities were not included and there was a beach a couple miles down. She admitted to never telling me because she assumed we would just be going out on the boat. She completely ruined our vacation!

Owner's Response: Sorry you had such a horrible vacation but you ruined your vacation by not booking directly with Hawks Cay, if you wanted a Resort. We never hide the fact that this is a private Villa and not part of Hawks Cay Resort. I always tell vacationers to book directly through Hawks Cay if that is what they are looking for and my rental contract does state not part of Hawks Cay Resort. In fact we did have a very nice conversation before your stay and you said would be on the boat the whole time and you also had a car to get around. You did not mention once that you wanted to use the resort. I acted very quickly when I got your call and my property manager stopped at property and saw you were using the pull out couch and not an air mattress, dropped off new sheets for you, the sheets that were on bed were clean but they had a stain. Also, the freezer was checked and found you had bait in the freezer of course it smelled like fish. As far as the bugs go not roaches they are Palmetto Bugs and if you live in Florida you know the bugs get in. Our HOA does spray monthly. Funny I had guests in for 7 days prior to your arrival and not one complaint.

very nice, we'll maintained

Inability to use the dock for boat only negative, but we worked around it and had a great time.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time. Yes as we discussed prior to renting only can pick up and drop off behind villa. Hoping one day the dock space will come up for sale behind our Villas but the people on Duck Key voted against selling slips by the spa villas. Can't understand it plenty of room for boats!

Great 7 days in duck key

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 7 days diving and fishing, the villa was nice and Debbie was a pleasure to work with. She was quick to answer any questions I had. Hawks cay is in my opinion the best family resort in the keys, thanks for the great vacation
