Why James Fleming chose Key Largo

We purchased our Key Largo Vacation Home in 2002 and we kept it "all to ourselves" for the last 12 years. We have had three generations of our family enjoy our home for holidays and family reunions. Our home has easy access to the ocean, backcountry and offshore fishing, and offers protected waters for tubing, jet skiing and just relaxing as you enjoy the incredible sunsets.

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy our Private Home Owner Parks and great food and fun everywhere you go. Our canal offers crystal clear water with underwater lighting which offers beautiful view of snook, tarpon, and manatees right off of our dock or from the comfort of our lounge chair under our Tiki Hut.

KEY LARGO STRESS RELIEF - Waterfront Home with Incredible Outdoor Space!
average rating of 4.0 based on 7 reviews

Excellent Views, Great Hospitality!

  • 4 of 5

The property was located on a short canal with bay views right from the screened porch which was a wonderful benefit while relaxing. James, the owner was very responsive to any questions or issues we had. I discovered the BBQ grill was not working during our first week and texed James; he responded immediately and brought a brand new grill within 48 hours! Initially, I was a bit worried about weeds filling the canal after reading the previous review listed here ( I had brought my own boat which I planned on leaving in the canal) and, as fate would have it, the canal did have lots of weeds when we arrived. But as James stated (and neighbors) the weeds come and go with the winds and tide. Sure enough within a day or two they were all gone and we enjoyed a very nice, clean, lighted canal for the rest of our time there. The house itself was well suited for 2 couples, (4 people) with the two bedrooms and baths....it is clean with good seating areas and a nice dining room table. James did an excellent job making us comfortable and satisfied with our stay...we will return!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot if you want to access the bay in a boat, or just to sit on the water and enjoy the view. The well-equipped house is clean and everything is available for cooking, fishing, kayaking or just relaxing.

The owner is helpful and responsive, a joy to work with. My only caution would be that this may not be a suitable house for young children-there are lots of knick knacks, art, crafts, etc in the home.

Great get away to relax

  • 5 of 5

The house was large and comfortable. Just perfect for relaxing and enjoying the Florida sunshine. Great access to screened in patios to take in the water or enjoy a meal. There was nothing that was left wanting. Would vacation here again!

Very disappointed! !!

  • 1 of 5

Very disappointed in our 5 night stay so much so that we packed up and left two days early. The accommodations inside the house were fine but the view outside was disgusting. The house was situated on a canal that was filled with palm tree leaves and fruit and garbage. The garbage included plastic bags, paper plates, a men's sandal, pieces of a swimming noodle to name a few. We parked our boat in that mess and the motor was covered with at least 6 inches of palm tree droppings. The owner's listing boasted of underwater lights so you could see the fish at night and a relaxing tiki hut to look out onto the water. Well the garbage in the canal had such a smell and was so thick that there was no way to see anything swimming around in that canal. We could not enjoy the weather outside and stayed inside the screen porch. The home is situated at the end of the canal and when the tide comes in so does all the trash. We were unable to use the kayaks, swim in the canal, or enjoy the beautiful weather because of the mess in the canal water. I contacted the owner and notified him that we checked out two days early. His response was that he wished we would of contacted him earlier but probably would not have been able to do anything about it. Beware of the pictures on the posting and find out where the dwellings are situated on canals before reserving your vacation. It was a very disappointing time for our family while traveled from Michigan.

I would have posted pictures but this review dies not allow attachments.

Owner's Response: Good Morning Karen and Charlie, I was quite surprised to read your very negative review. I'd like to begin my apologizing once again that your stay was anything short of fantastic, however I believe there are some details you have left out. As any past or future guest can see in our photos, our home is situated directly on Tarpon Basin. 95% of the time, this allows for a great view, clear Gulf of Mexico water, and an enjoyable vacation for all of our guests. That being said, the one thing we can't control is mother nature. I found it very odd that you "checked out early" without informing me or our housekeeping staff. I have never in all my years of providing exceptional Vacation Home stays had a guest "depart early" only to tell me 2 days later that they had actually left. Additionally, I found it very concerning that you "threatened" to write a negative review if I did not provide you with a full refund. I have had many wonderful guests stay in our home over the years, however this was a FIRST and hopefully a last for us. For future guests, I hope you can overlook one "bad apple" and allow us to share with you our little slice of Key Largo Paradise. As past reviews will show, our home is the perfect Key Largo Cottage getaway and we can't wait to share it with you! Thank You!

Nice little place right on the canal!

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for our vacation. Plenty of room in the house. Nice and clean. The outside has a great tiki hut with a fan to cool things off. Enjoyed watching all the fish...especially at night with lights in the water! Loved the fans on the screened porches as well. Great to have two kayaks for us to use. Just head out the canal and explore. House is close to lots of restaurants and shopping.

Great for our much needed relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed ourselves in this house. We came here with our 2yr old and we were a little nervous about the access to the water. Upon arrival we realized it was going to be perfect. The outside area would be great with older kids but for us the screened in porch was great for containing our little guy and allowing for some much needed relaxation. While visiting the private beach we saw 3 manatee hanging out within 100ft of us. The last day we saw dolphins swimming at the canal entrance. There were also kayaks for us to use which were great for watching the manatee. The owner was also pretty quick for answering any questions. We would stay here again.
