Guestbook comments from the owner

When we arrived on location I don't know what I was expecting but I was very pleasantly surprised that everything was as advertised. As was my wife and since I was the one that found this rental if it went badly the blame would have been squarely on my shoulders. Thankfully not only my wife loved our stay but my kids loved the home as well 14,12,10 Respectively. There was plenty of space for everybody and the kitchen literally had everything you could need for day to day cooking and even more rare herbs, spices, and baking goods. [Food Not included of course.]

The Home is located in a easy to locate area of Cudjoe Key and between our constant trips to the beach and every state park within a 20m radius we had so much to do it was a trip worth remembering. Besides the stocked kitchen the home was clean and airy as well as spacious for our family of 5. My only regret is we did not rent a boat for the week of our stay since the home does indeed have a wonderful dock and easy ocean access only minutes away. Next year I wont make the same mistake when we return and will rent a boat for our entire stay.

Patricia was a wonderful person to deal with from start to finish and is the definition of a gracious host. I would not only go back, and I plan too. But I would recommend anybody else to that wants a care free/worry free stay in the Keys to go off without a hitch.

A place to return to and recommend to friends.

  • 5 of 5

There is a reason ALL of the reviews of this house/property are 5 stars.

It starts with the owners. Patty was informative, accommodating and a pleasure to work with.

The property is one of the more "secluded" ones with a great location(unless you plan on being up all night making a lot of noise. If that is what you are looking for please go somewhere else).

The house is very well kept and great for 4-6 people. The amenities/furnishings are well above your typical rental. Your typical rental is usually lacking a nice assortment of pots, pans, utensils, plates and glasses. That is not the case here. The washer/Dryer worked great. It is bad enough to have to go home, but who wants to go home and have to do all that dirty laundry!

The back of the house by the canal was probably the best part of the property. It has a nice sandy area and what must be a new "dock" right on a small canal. We did some fishing from here in the mornings and evenings while we were relaxing and had some decent success including small barracuda and a nurse shark among others.

We have already recommended the Charming Artist Home to friends and will be keeping Patty's contact information for the next time we have the opportunity to get away to the Keys.

Very Comfortable House in Cudjoe Key

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Cudjoe Key. Great location in the keys. The house is very comfortable and is well equipped with everything that you will need. Large deck with view overlooking canal. No houses accross the canal. Has an open lot on one side of the house. House has a very nice space for docking a boat.

Winters in Fort Pierce, summer Michigan and Ontario

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

As former residents of Cudjoe Key we love to come down from Fort Pierce and visit friends and get away to the Keys we remember. This home has everything to really enjoy a week away. Decor is so charming, something new around every corner, every day I would find something I missed. So clean and comfortable, beds were so inviting and quiet. Kitchen fully stocked, did not have to buy anything except our food. Only thing missing was a ladder to get in to our kayaks. We will definitely book another stay next year and tell our friends that this is the home they should book for their annual Keys vacation.

Awesome vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A native Floridian and I'd never been to the Keys. Cannot wait to go back and would go to this immaculate house every time! The owners were very easy to work with and the location is great. Just minutes to everything but quiet and secluded at the same time. Couldn't have asked for a better place! The dock and canal were great for fishing each morning. We had everything we needed and the art all over the house was very interesting and beautiful. Very comfortable for 4-6 people. Thanks Patty I'll be in touch with you again soon I hope!

A much needed break that was truly a blessing :)

  • 5 of 5

Our family of grown children, teenagers, and grandchildren completely fell in love with this home. It was close enough to Key West for us to go sight seeing when the weather wasn't completely perfect, and close enough to other islands to sight see and go to the beach. The home was perfect. Had all of wants and needs to make staying the week pleasant. I loved the decor of the home. Loved being on the canal and in a quiet neighborhood that was family friendly.Patty was wonderful about mailing some tools to us that were forgotten. The only thing wrong with this piece of paradise was that we had to leave. When we go back again, this will be the place we choose to stay.
