Nice little place right at the water. Had a few really nice days. Nice staff and good to relax. Would come again when back in the Keys. Not far from the Dolphin Research Center or places to rent stuff from.

This is a great little place. My boyfriend and I loved it here. The front desk staff are very friendly and accommodating. We missed the sunset that evening due to our late check in. Richard text it to me. Breath taking. There is a little squirrel that loves to join you for breakfast in hopes he will get fed too.... More

A cute little cottage with space and all we needed (though maybe a kettle for cups of tea would be nice too!) The setting is wonderful with the small beach, the jetty that you can sit and watch out... More
