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!
Debbie Winters purchased this villa in 1999
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.
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!
We had a fun trip. The villa was exactly as shown. It was nice and quiet and close to stairs on the dock. However, for our family, it would have been better to rent directly through Hawk's Cay. We were not able to even walk into the hotel area. In order to utilize any of the Hawk's Cay amenities (pools, beach, restaurants, spa, shuttle, gym, boat dock), guests are given colored wristbands which are required for all amenities with the exception of the Hawk's Cay Marina and the restaurant at the marina. We read the reviews from other guests including other privately owned villas listed in VRBO and many indicated they were able to use the pools, restaurants, and spa. This is not the case. In fact, my husband and I ended up staying in the hotel for one night during our stay so that we could get the wristbands and our daughters could use the pool. We rented a boat and were able to keep it close by in front of the Harbor Village villas, but it was still quite a far walk from the villa. Had we rented through the resort rather than a private owner, we could have kept the boat directly outside our villa. We would have rather spent the extra money and rented through the resort for the use of amenities, location and great views of the Harbor Village villas, and the ease of keeping the boat directly outside the unit.
Duck Key is beautiful and is in a great location in the keys. Debbie was helpful and easy to work with. Her suggestions for restaurants were great!
Visited the Keys with my daughter and her boyfriend, we used Hawks Cay as our base for exploring the islands. Great central location!
The villa was very clean, comfortable and quiet! Really enjoyed walking to the resort area via the canal boardwalks.
What we thought was a hot tub turned out to be a splash pool so it wasn't as hot as we were expecting but once we understood that we adjusted our expectations:)
We enjoyed our stay on Duck Key. Debbie was very responsive to my inquiries and was helpful suggesting places to eat and things to see. The location is good, close to state parks and beaches and about 60 miles from Key West. As it was our first time to visit the Keys, it was a good location from which we could explore both north and south. The house is exactly as pictured and was clean and tidy. Debbie was also very quick to return our security deposit!
Villa was well equipped and bed most comfortable. Debbie was extremely helpful during the booking process and sent us lots of info about the area. The restaurants she recommended, that we tried, were good and we perhaps would not have found them without the comprehesive guide Debbie provided.
The resort on-site swimming pool was warm, sadly the villa spa was too cold to use even after a visit from the pool man arranged by Debbie to come and turn up the heat.
Great condo! Was very comfortable and clean. Loved the location we were centrally located to everything. Debbie was very quick in responding to any of our needs, was very accommodating and supplied a large list of places to eat!! Definitely will be back!!!!
Loved our stay in Hawks Cay! Debbie was very quick in responding to my questions, and very helpful with suggestions and especially making sure our jacuzzi as heated! Thanks for a great little getaway!
Great Fishing, snorkeling, water sports, shopping, Outdoor Tiki Bars and Restaurants, Spa Services.
