Great Visit- cudjoe
This 2-bedroom house was just the right size for the two of us and allowed us enough room for comfort and storage, as well as space to work during our travel. The proximity to the water is very relaxing.
After being in one place for 3 months, we kind of got attached to this place. On Cudjoe, off Spanish Main, you are minutes from shopping , the gym, and some pretty great restaurants. No more than 30 minutes from downtown. Super clean when we arrived.The master bedroom bed was super comfortable. The shower was luxurious and always ran hot. We had guests who told us the guest bedroom was very comfortable. The kitchen was very well appointed and easy to cook in (we love to cook). But...the most spectacular part of this property are those sunsets. We would actually leave our days activities early to get back and have a cocktail on the back-porch with the world renowned Key West Sunsets. We photographed over 40 in the 3 months we were there. All different and all equally amazing. Janet and Imitiaz are really wonderful people. They were always accessible and constantly reiterated to call them for anything. The few times we had questions we got responses within minutes via text. The other big plus for us was the garage. Being able to park our vehicle out of the elements was huge. We would highly recommend this property for a fun stay in the lower Keys!
My family and I had an absolutely stay at this property. The house is immaculate and newly remodeled. The property is in a quiet neighborhood and close the Key West. The canalfront location allowed us to dock our boat for easy day trips into the Atlantic. We plan to return as soon as possible. It is without reservation that I recommend the property highly!!
to say this place is incredible would be a huge understatement. everything from dealing with the owner both before and during the stay(he contacted us several times to make sure things were OK) to receiving back our security deposit went very smoothly.
the house itself was perfect for us. furniture was clean and just as you'd want. location is perfect in that it is roughly the same distance either west or east to key west or marathon. we wanted a VERY low key, low stress rental and this certainly fit that bill! my son and i caught tons of fish right off the dock both morning and night (heat of the day seemed to turn off the bite). for beach trips, we chose Sombrero beach in marathon (only 25 miles east) as that was the 'sleepiest'. no crowd at all at anytime of the day as we went both early in the day once and then late in the afternoon the next. the only noise we heard at night was the peaceful sound of gentle winds/breezes flowing through the trees. AC worked very well (we're from DRY, Southern California so humidity causes us serious discomfort). we couldn't have been happier with selecting this place for our vacation!!! 2 thumbs up. in fact, planning for next year's stay is already underway!!!
Simply perfect home for anyone who wants a Waterfront vacation. This beautiful two bedroom house overlooks a gorgeous ocean view. The house has everything you need ! Updated bathrooms, large smart TVs, a beautiful balcony overlooking the water with a nice gas grill, and a great kitchen tailor-made for visiting families. It is also only 30 minutes to Key West so you are away from the hustle and bustle but can get to Key West quickly. We went there four times during our stay and had a great time. We brought our boat with us and it's very easy to get in and out of the dock outside the house, it made boating easy. We couldn't of found a better place for our family to spend time in the keys !
Our stay was wonderful! Our host Janet made sure we were satisfied and happy. The view from the wrap around deck was the best. I would love to stay here again. Very clean and updated house. Just an all around great experience that accommodated our group well. Nice quiet neighborhood with great views of ocean, wildlife and sunshine all within 15 minutes of Key West.
From the very moment we arrived we were pleased. Everything was exactly as described and the owners were so helpful and pleasant to deal with. The accompanying boat launch is a must for boaters, and with the quick access to Cudjoe bay plus the sunset views, we definitely didn’t want to leave. Will be back again next year for sure, and will miss every minute until then!
Thank you again for your hospitality and such a fantastic stay!
Great place to stay. House was very clean and had all the amenities you could want. Beautiful sunsets in a quiet neighborhood. Also located near bike trails and easy boat access to the ocean. We hope to be back soon.
Clean, neat, easy access from land and water. Plenty of space for a great vacation. Everything you need at your fingertip.
The view from the balcony is beautiful and we had easy access to the open water , is was a great family vacation spot!
We had a great time. I used a 40 foot boat. I did not launch this from the house but boated from Fort Myers. I would not suggest anything over 30 foot in the future. The canal is around 33 feet wide. It is not that it can’t be done, but that they will have to really watch the tides. Below is a picture you can include in your rental ad for boaters, I marked the cut coordinates to get in the channel. The markers in the water are only two small PVC pipes. It should help you rent to more boaters in the future. Once in the CUT they need to stay close to shore, you can kind of see the canal from the satellite view. Experienced Boater
