Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful Christmas vacation. Your suggestions were invaluable. The fishing trip you set up for us the best we caought yellowtail, snapper, grouper (which we had to throw back), and some nice spanish mackerel. We loved exploring the mangroves in your kayak. We took some great photos from the balcony. Thanks for the memories.

Week in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Plantation Key. The condo was very nice. Clean and bright. We were on the 6th floor. It was at the end of the units, so it was a little distant from the elevator which made it a quiet place to be. The view was nice. We could see the ocean. There is a high school track and field behind us , but it did not bother us. Still very quite while sitting on the balcony at any time of the day.

The pool area was very nice. Kayaking was fun as the water is always pretty calm and fairly shallow.

The traffic on US 1 is very busy so leave extra time if you are in a hurry.

We seemed to be close to many good restaurants and activities.

Overall it was a great week in the Keys and a great place to stay.

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our honeymoon here and it was a perfect week. The condo was comfortable and had everything you needed. There was so much to do in the area and the owner gave excellent recommendations. We loved it!

The Perfect Place in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had! Our third time with you. The brand new air conditioner and remodeled kitchen were a nice surprise. You always keep updating the adorable condo. The views, the views, the views!!! We visited our regular haunts and some of the newer places. Your reviews were spot on. The new pool patio and landscaping is awesome. It's 100% better than it was for our first trip back in 2013. We're hoping to add a late winter or spring trip this year. Happy Holidays, and thanks again for sharing your beautiful place with us.

Dirty Condo

  • 2 of 5

We arrived at night and were given the wrong code to get into the building. Took over 30 minutes to get into the building. Upon arriving the fire alarm battery was dead and we had to figure out how to disable it. The shower did not work, it knob you pull up on faucet was rusted. So my husband had to fix that so we could take showers instead of baths. ANTS, ANTS, ANTS!! Everywhere you turned there were hundreds of ants! I can see there being a few, but there were literally thousands of ants in the condo. Normal ones and flying ones. The condo was all dusty like someone hadn't cleaned in weeks. We had to wear socks/shoes so we wouldn't have to feel grimy on our feet. We found dust tumble weeds behind the bed. Speaking of bed, you could feel the springs in your back on the master bed.It was horrible. I had to put comforters on the bed from the extra beds to make it manageable. The condo is also located right beside a high school football field. You can see and hear everything from the practices to the games. The ocean view was tiny. You are literally the furthest unit from the ocean in the condo complex. You also have to do the laundry before you leave. Is that what the cleaning fee covers? Overall we were very unhappy with this unit and will definitely not stay here again. We felt like we paid too much money for a dirty, have to fix stuff on your own, condo. On a positive note, the rest of our vacation was amazing. We went scuba diving is Islamorada Dive Center multiple times and drove down to key west. Ate at a bunch of good restaurants (Lazy Days was our favorite).

Owner's Response: Jennifer, You and your additional unauthorized guests, wreaked havoc with your late night nonsense at the condo and pool which resulted in the Condo assoc. issuing a complaint which then resulted in your removal from our property, and forfeiture of your security deposit. In addition, you checked in a day early, without permission and paid no attention to the instructions I provided. You behaved like animals! Your failure to comply with the rules and deplorable behavior, and the resulting retribution for doing so, is no excuse for the malicious, lie ridden review you left. Having to deal with filthy, disrespectful and dishonest people like you is the risk we owners take by renting through the internet. Owners beware
