It was like staying with friends, and we will be back. This is a small property that is beautifully adorned with palm trees, a wonderful sand veranda overlooking the bay side complete with a great view of the awesome Keys sunsets into the bay's horizon, with comfortable chairs, loungers, and hammocks strung between palms. You can swim, dock your boat, snorkel, or simply dangle your toes in the warm water, and watch various kinds of fish swimming in and out of the boat dock lagoon. Two gas barbeque grills are provided and maintained by the management as well as two nice tiki huts to keep the hot sun off. The rooms were dated but very clean and comfortable, the air conditioning will freeze you out if you want it too, and the maid service fast and complete each morning. The folks that man the office acted as if we were long lost best friends, and like to take the time to sit out there with you and tell you anything you want to know about the area, things to do, and maybe more importantly what you may not want to do.
If you are looking for expensive indoor decor, and tons of amenities that make you want to lounge around your suite like Thurston Howell the third and his wife Lovie, this is not your place. But if you simply want good, clean and friendly accommodations to get you comfortably through the night as well as happy hour that allow you to keep some of that lodging money you have set aside for other and much more entertaining uses, you like us will appreciate this jewel of a property and vow to come back again soon, this is your place.
I just hope my review does not create such a demand that we have difficulty in the future booking another stay, but reading a couple of reviews on this page posted by folks that just must be impossible to please made me feel like I had to let the cat out of the bag.
We plan to return.
