The property has two buildings, a coin washer and dryer are on-site, and the pool is very nice. The property is pretty and includes 5 birds and a turtle. Coco, the cockatoo/cockatiel/whatever, can talk; it also waves when it says hello. This is a pet friendly facility with large grassy areas. There is a bike/walking path about 1/4 mile South of the property. The rooms are large, the kitchen area is adequate, all appliances work well and, the bed was very comfortable. Gas grills are available; if they need gas, please let the owners know. As with most properties in the Florida Keys, the beach is not swimmable. Kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats are available and all are in good shape. I'd recommend going out only at high tide; it's an easy paddle to the North where you are soon behind the Dolphin Research Center and can watch the dolphins jump during the shows. (Highly recommend actually going to the Dolphin Research Center.) I can't believe I almost forgot this - the housekeeper is very friendly and a lot of fun - she leaves towel animals on the bed every day. It's fun to see what is going to be there.
