Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our visit!!! Plenty of room, especially with the huge screened porch. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that you might need and all of the extra linens were a great extra. The master bedroom was big and bright, with all of the windows and an extra "day bed" that my niece took full advantage of. The master bath was equally as great, thanks to all of the windows and the huge shower was amazing. The pool was the perfect size and we loved watching the daily visits from the iguanas next door. We loved fishing off the dock and snorkeling all around the pier....and the fact that there was a kayak on-site for our use, was a great perk. Great location on a quiet street with a perfect gulf view. We were minutes from Curry Hammock State Park, a quick drive into Marathon for groceries and activities, and about an hour from Key West and Key Largo. Be sure to try the Grassy Key Outpost and Brutus' Market for lunch or dinner!

Perfect Keys Get Away

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location and beautiful home! There is something for everyone. Have your morning coffee on the porch and listen to the palm trees sway in the breeze as you gaze out onto the Gulf. Plan a days outing to the many convenient sites like the Turtle Hospital and Crane Point. Take a walk in the lovely and friendly neighborhood with your pet. Or you can relax by just lounging by the great pool. Plan a great dinner in the well appointed kitchen and toast the sunset with your favorite beverage. Say goodnight to the resident lobsters and look forward to a good sleep in this comfortable and peaceful home. Make your memories in this gorgeous location. We will be back.

A Keys star!

  • 5 of 5

Is a wonderful place, lots of amenities in the house with everything you need and then some. Great kitchen, porch, family room etc all with great views. Very nice size heated pool. There is a long pier, boat lift, kayak launch and fishing area. Terrific snorkeling all around the pier.

Lots to do at the house but nearby (10 min.) is the Sea Turtle Rescue, the Dolphin Research Center, the regional Aquarium where you can feed the sharks, a wonderful Nature Preserve to hike and with the oldest house in the central Keys, even an Arts Center for those few rainy days (had 1).

Not only a great place but absolutely spectacular sun rises and even better sun sets. The perfect way to end a day by going out to the end of the long pier with a glass of wine and enjoying the sun set and later the stars. Seldom do I give five stars but this one earned it.

Paradise Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fun and relaxing, something for everyone. Snorkel off the dock, paddle boarding, kayaking. Once you purchase your groceries and beverages, you never have to leave this private resort, if you don't want to. It has everything you need. Enjoy the in ground pool or your very own private sandy beach. Bring your beverage to the end of the dock to watch the sunset. We rented a boat and headed to Coffin's Patch where you can dive or snorkel. I highly recommend this private oasis.

BEST HOUSE IN GRASSY KEY FOR THE PRICE!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this house for the first week in June 2015. We have stayed on Grassy Key several times over the years and are familiar with several of the rental houses there. However, I have to say that for the price this is the BEST house we have stayed at! Summer Sunset is nearly a $1,000 less than most other houses on Grassy Key! This house is very large and has a lot of room to stretch out. The master bedroom is huge with beautiful windows and view. Also all of the windows and sliding doors are very new and are very easy to open. The sliding doors in the living room even open all the way across the entire back of the house. There is a great counter with window from the kitchen to the screened porch which works great when serving meals on the screen porch. The other bedrooms are pretty standard but there are lots of large closets and plenty of extra sheets, blankets, pillows, and towels. The house is very clean and very well maintained. You can tell the house is older but you can also tell that it has been taken care of and that everything (though older) is very high end. For example, the refrigerator is a Sub-Zero!! It is amazing! And even came stocked with ketchup, mustard, mayo, cocktail sauce, butter, and hot sauce. The dock is very large and seems to go out forever. The wild life is amazing just for snorkeling off the dock. The owner must enjoy lobster season because this house has at least 100 plus lobsters under its dock. It looks like the owner sunk his old boat lift under the new dock and it is now home to hundreds of lobsters. I had never seen anything like it before! They were everywhere! We also saw several large parrot fish and the local Grassy Key nurse shark. The neighbors dock had a huge school of large beautifully colored fish. My son caught 30 small fish in 2 hours off the dock. A few were very hard to unhook and throw back because they were some type of Gar. The pool is a very nice size and (unlike other house we have stayed at before) it was the perfect temperature! The pool also got a lot of daily visitors and I even got a video one day with 5 large iguanas drinking from the pool. This house also has the best of both worlds when it comes to sunsets and sunrises because of the way Morton Street curves you can see both sunsets and sunrises from the end of the dock. I would give this house a 5 star because it offers a lot of things other Grassy Key house don’t and at a great price!
