About Michael and Melba Tomeo

We are retired and live part of the year in Pennsylvania. I am a retired librarian (as you will be able to guess from the well-stocked bookshelves in the house). My husband is a retired carpenter and a devoted fisherman. We are having so much fun here, learning to snorkel, kayaking, biking, and having new adventures daily. I really appreciate the environment here and all of the flora and fauna that is new to me. I hope you will enjoy it, too.

Michael and Melba Tomeo purchased this house in 2015

Why Michael and Melba Tomeo chose Key Largo Park

We have visited the Keys for many years, staying here and there. In 2015, we stayed in this neighborhood, fell in love with it, went crazy and bought a house! We like Key Largo, so many things to do, many within easy reach of a walk or a bike ride. I will be happy to share our continuing discoveries and adventures with you when you book.

What makes this house unique

It's just a treat to wake up in the morning and look out at the sunshine and palm trees blowing in the breeze.

Island life!

Just as wonderful as it looks and as described!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Sunshine House is just as amazing and wonderful as it looks and as described. The world is not a perfect place and as things came up, as they always do, Melba was fantastic to interact with. She responds/reaches out promptly and was very fair and generous with all correspondences and "things that come up." This was our first VRBO experience and Melba felt very honorable and trustworthy and that we'd love to do this again. Her house is amazing - all the perks (grill & hot tub & bikes & kayaks & beach stuff & hammock & picnic table w/ umbrella, etc) and all the amenities (field guides to everything & great books on local stories & beach towels & John Pennekamp State Park pass (entire carload of people free!) & kids stuff & washer/dryer, etc) made it so easy to leave home with nothing and show up there and be ready for anything! The binders of helpful information (fun things to do, eat, resources, manuals for things in house, coupons, etc) are invaluable! The house is in a great neighborhood. It is fun to walk around and look at all the great mailboxes & license plates :) John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is just a few minutes north, as are the Publix & Winn Dixie grocery stores (also more further South). Plenty of low-priced gas stations around. Key Largo Chocolates & Ice Cream (yummy Key Lime sorbetto & ice cream) as well as the Tower of Pizza (amazing Gyros!!!) & a farmers market & a Mexican food truck are all within a 5-10 minute walking distance. Just a 5-10 minute walk South is the post office & the Holiday Inn area that offers glass bottom boat rides & numerous fishing excursions & the African Queen & Paradise Island Charters (our new favorite snorkeling tour company!) Sooo many amazing & delicious restaurants within a 10 minute drive. Great food & deals & some fantastic sunsets. JPCRSP beach just North & Harry Harris beach just 15 minutes South. My point being is Melba's house is perfectly situated and at the heart of so much. Quick and easy to get out and about. Melba provides all the info you need to get in & out easily and have a wonderful time. Melba & her Sunshine House & her neighborhood can't be beat; couldn't recommend more! This is what made our vacation a vacation - I could just show up and relax! Go if you can & stay as long as possible!!! :)

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks! I'm so glad you had a good time. That is our hope for all of our guests. The location of our house was an important factor in our decision to buy there. Go a block or two in one direction and you are at Starbucks. Go a block or two in the other direction and you are in the mangroves and enjoying Florida's unique natural world. Thank you for your nice review. (And as a retired librarian, I am particularly pleased that you enjoyed the books!)

Perfect Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Great location to go north and south for day trips yet in a quiet peaceful neighborhood. House is very well maintained and more than comfortable for a family of 4. With all the rain we had during our week's stay, it was truly a home away from home. Amenities were great-especially the grill and hot tub. We'd recommend to anyone going to the area!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Elizabeth! Sorry about the rain, but I am glad the location worked so well for you. That is one of the reasons we chose this property.

Perfect Key Largo vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

You can pack light when you stay at this house because they have everything you need! It was very clean, comfortable, and well stocked with all the comforts of home. We come to the Keys to dive, so the location was perfect for us. We dive with Rainbow Reef, and their retail shop is within walking distance. We enjoyed using the kayaks for short paddles during the stay. Please note if you want to use the hot tub, it takes a LONG time to heat up. We plugged it in before we left in the morning and it was only 98 degrees by dinner time. Still nice to soak after a long day. We wouldn't hesitate to return for our next Key Largo trip.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a good time, Alice! Sorry about the hot tub... it does take some time to get heated up. Thanks for the tip on Rainbow Reef; I know others will be interested also.

Just awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week with our 2 year old child. Melba was very kind and lovely at any time. She prepared a baby bed and a high chair. Her house is just beautiful and clean. You have access to a private park (beach). Melba had beach towels, an umbrella, canu etc. Hint: Enjoy the sunset in the park and see dolphins. We saw them twice!!! Thank you Melba❤

Clean, well-equipped, affordable, and a great owner!

  • 5 of 5

Our late Christmas celebration with the in-laws was perfect! 5 adults and one toddler fit very comfortably in this 3br 2ba home. The home was meticulously decorated, clean, and unbelievably equipped. Melba, the owner, was fantastic. She sent us a card before our arrival with a gift certificate for the local pizza place, responded promptly to all correspondence, accommodated all of our requests, and seemed sincerely interested in making this a great vacation. Melba even had the Christmas decorations left up for our family. The house was clean and comfortable and full of amenities. We took full advantage of the hot tub, the backyard, the grill, and cooked many great meals in the kitchen. We really appreciated the state parks pass, even though John Pennekamp state park hadn't fully recovered from the hurricane. The kayaks and bicycles weren't used, but they were still appreciated! Probably the thing that really made this place standout was how toddler-friendly it was. There were tons of kids toys, and a pack and play was provided but not used. Check-in/check-out were flawless, the information binder was detailed, and I was very impressed by the selection of books on the shelves. Thanks for a great stay!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time in this beautiful and spacious home. The house has plenty of things to do inside as well as enjoying the keys. The kayaks were a great benefit with mangroves to explore not too far away. Find out how to strap on the wheels to move the kayak with ease. You can put the kayak into the water by going straight past the community beach so you don't have to hassle with the gate. There's also a hot tub so be sure to read the welcome book in the house. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy this wonderful treasure and being so welcoming!
