This place was very good value.. The pool was nice and the dock was the best. Mark really appreciates his customers and was willing to help us. I can't wait for the new building to open. We stayed in a one bedroom bungalow. It had everything we could ask for..

My family booked three nights in one their cottages. We booked this place because they had a ramp and slip to dock our boat. $179 a night plus $20 a day for the boat and trailer. The ramp was adequate and the dock space was deep and had fresh water for use which was nice. It took about 10 min... More

We are sorry your family was not satisfied with your stay. We do have a refund policy and wanting a refund 15 min. before check-out on last morning because your other rental was ready a day early seemed unreasonable. Our cottages are older but are kept up and cleaned after every guest stay. We do have pest control and have... More

We stayed here for about 5 weeks, only finding out about the place from a tip from a friend. There are only about 12 RV sites with full hook-ups, we stayed down on the waterfront by the Tiki hut. The owner is on site trying to keep the cabins cleaned and the park maintained, but I know he could use... More

Stayed in one of the cottages with my husband for 3 nights. Set-up wasn't too bad - bed, 3 pillows, couch, kitchen with general appliances and bathroom. On our first night, it poured outside for a few hours. We noticed that water was pooling in the bathroom and assumed that it was from the rain. However, turned out that it... More

We drove into the driveway passing the above ground pool. The pool was dirty and old looking but we were not going to swim so this really wasnt an issue. We could tell that the "cabins" were old but it was a one night stay, again not that worried. He had us look in a room for approval. It seemed... More

We stayed there April 11-13 with another couple. We had room 8 and they had room 6. Our room was newly renovated. It appeared clean but after seeing our friends room...we were leery of the whole place.

Not to be confused with a similarly named place up the road, Bonefish Bay Motel & RV is a nice place to stay in the Keys. Read the other reviews carefully to make sure they are not talking about the other place. We were looking for a place in the middle keys to kayak, dive and ride the motorcyle and... More

I would pay not to stay at this place ever again, it's $99 value price for accommodations in the Keys is not worth it!

We have stayed there for the last 12 years and it changed hands a few years ago and has went downhill ever since. Mark the owner is more interested in adding RV sites than keeping up the rooms he has. We had a verbal agreement on the 2 rooms we rented, for a week, but when we got there he... More
