About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Venture Out Unit 411 is a waterfront unit with 35' of dock space and Wi-Fi internet access that will provide you with all of the comforts of home.

Three HD-TV's with 260+ channels (HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, TMC, Starz included) and two DVD players are provided for your convenience along with a phone for local and long distance calls, a gas barbecue, and a washer & dryer. There is no smoking in the unit and pets are not permitted.

Venture Out is a gated waterfront community that features a heated swimming pool, hot tub, kiddie pool, saltwater swimming lagoon, picnic areas, marina with a boat ramp, boat cleaning station, fish cleaning station, lighted tennis courts & bocce ball area, shuffleboard, ping pong, basketball courts, playground, and horseshoes. In addition, there is an on-site store and post office, plus the recreation center provides guests with free wi-fi access. Our home is located just 7 miles from Looe Key Marine Sanctuary (great diving and snorkeling), plus the Florida Keys provide great fishing. We are 23 miles from Key West, 140 miles from Miami, 167 miles from Fort Lauderdale, and 368 miles from Orlando.

From November-April, many activities are scheduled. This has included land & water exercise classes, morning coffee, church & Sunday school, music, bingo, arts & crafts, bocce ball, yoga, book club, dancing, bible study, keyboarding, mah-jongg, darts, quilting & knitting, tai chi, piano, choir, and pancake breakfasts. Venture Out is a great place to spend an extended period of time during the winter months.

Please contact me if you have questions or need more information. Thanks, and we hope you'll consider visiting our home in the Florida Keys!

About Cindy Rybaczyk

My husband John and I reside in New Jersey for approximately 49 weeks a year; the other 3, we're in the Keys! I am a retired teacher of gifted and talented students and my husband is a retired programmer on the air traffic control system. Our love of the Keys began in 1991 when we made our first trip to learn to scuba dive. To put it mildly, we've been hooked ever since! The diving is fantastic, the fishing is great, and the Keys are a nice relaxing place to enjoy some quality time away from everything.

Cindy Rybaczyk purchased this mobile home in 2012

Why Cindy Rybaczyk chose Lower Florida Keys

We've been staying in Venture Out since our first trip back in 1991. I started looking for a place early on but felt we couldn't quite put everything together to make it happen until we finally purchased in 2012. Here's what I mean - I've stayed in great units in Venture Out, and I've stayed in... not so great units. My intention from the start was to not purchase until I was certain that I could make my unit be up to par of what I expected. Each trip we make, we insure that things our right for both us and our guests. Upgrades are made as needed, and this has so far included replacing the air conditioning, a new gas grill, new living room furniture, new bedding for one of the two bedrooms, and three new TV's with DVD players. The TV in the living room is a Samsung 48". All TV's have Xfinity X1's Complete Package with HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, TMC, and Starz... 260+ channels total. We've added Wi-Fi Internet access, installed phone and cable service, and made it a point of keeping up with things that needed to be done. When selecting a rental unit, I can't say it enough - there are some good ones and there are some that aren't quite as good. I make sure that my unit has everything guests need to be comfortable and to enjoy their stay.

What makes this mobile home unique

The best part of my unit is the waterfront access. You can dock your boat along our 35' patio. Venture Out is just 7 miles by boat out to Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location! The boat access behind the house made our daily boat trips extremely convenient. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay there again. Great place!

Not worth the $

  • 1 of 5

The are is really beautiful. However the rules are ridiculous, we paid alot to come for the week and to be told we can only put so many room temp. drinks in the frig and that if we mess with the thermostat we are going to be fined. I felt like I was walking on egg shells instead of relaxing with all the can't do's for the money we paid. The beds were awful felt like they were fifty years old with the lumps in them. I will not be returning to this property.

Owner's Response: I would have assumed that if the guest felt there were problems, she would have reached out to either me or my realtor. Rather than do that, she waited until after the fact (when it was too late to correct her issues). Regarding the area, I agree it is beautiful - we are seven miles by boat from Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary and Venture Out strives to keep the facilities and grounds in tip-top shape for guests. As far as the ridiculous rules go, the air conditioner suggestion is to keep the unit from freezing up because of continual running in an attempt to attain a temperature that is impossible to reach. I do not know what the guest is referring to about placing a limited number of drinks in the refrigerator. Had she reached out to my realtor or myself, these issues would have been addressed and resolved. Regarding the beds, the mattresses are firm and are only a few years old. I'm sorry that she felt that her stay was not worth the money. She stayed for 5 nights and paid less than what's being charged for area hotel rooms even when you figure in cleaning, taxes, and VRBO charges. Additionally, she opted to pay the refundable security deposit rather than purchasing damage insurance - that amount will be returned to the guest (I'm not sure that she realized this when she wrote her review). Area hotel rooms (not 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom units with a living room, kitchen, washer/dryer, and 35' on the water with dockage) are going for a higher price than what was paid. Again, I'm sorry to hear that she was not satisfied. We take pride in making sure that our vacation unit is in the best possible shape for our guests and will continue to do so.

Summer key life and fising

  • 4 of 5

The place was fine. Access to water was the big thing. Small showers and beds dont compare to other places I've rented there and in key west. 2nd visit to venture out. Well run place. Over flow parking was inconvenient

Perfect location in a peaceful community

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to have an opportunity to stay in this lovely and charming home. It was perfect for our needs. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. If you are looking for a quiet spot to base your Key's trip, this is perfect. Just a short drive from Key West or Marathon. It would also be a wonderful location for snowbirds to be able to spread their wings during the winter months.

The fishing, diving, and snorkeling in the Lower Keys is, putting it mildly, out of this world! For divers and snorkelers, we are located just 7 miles by boat from Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary - there are numerous dive shops in the area that run trips daily if you do not have your own boat. The fishing in the area waters is outstanding. While not on the water, you can enjoy a trip down to Key West to experience sunset celebration or take a ride on the Conch Tour Train, or head further up the Keys to visit The Theater of the Sea or the Dolphin Research Center. Any time of the year is a great time for a Lower Florida Keys visit!
