Just returned home from an incredible vacation to the Keys. We traveled with 4 couples and was specifically looking four bedrooms and baths with queen or larger beds. Very few houses in the keys met this need and we were happy with the selection we made. A couple air conditioning problems happened during our stay and the owner handled them immediately. Extremely responsive and friendly service at every need. The house has a very large open den and kitchen area which was great for our group to hang out in. The pool area was equally as nice with a tiki hut and lots of shade trees. We enjoyed the outside sound system and listened to music all day.
The dock area has direct Atlantic access and running out to Sombrero reef was quick and easy. It is a lot further than it looks but an easy ride. The last day of our vacation we snorkeled around west sister rock and found it to be as good a place as any to play in the water. At less than a mile away, it is really easy to get to and also a great place to watch the sunset. We fished from the dock some and caught grunts and mangrove snapper. We also had visits from a manatee as well as afternoon visits from a nurse shark. We paddled a little bit in the kayaks but did most of our exploring by a rented boat.
Our best decision was finding a cook to come in and prepare meals on site. The ladies did not want to fix hair, dress up, etc. to go anywhere for lunch. A little research found us Dolly who shopped and prepared fabulous lunch, snacks, and dinner. For three days, we ate in at the house only leaving to snorkel and fish. This was amazing and would do it again without a doubt. We have given Dolly’s info to the owner so you may be able to arrange her service as well. Go ahead and tell her the chicken salad, salmon, and flan must be on your menu.
This vacation will definitely be repeated and it will be repeated at this house. Everything about it was excellent.
