“Nice & quiet”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

If you like nature you love this place! It’s like paradise and when I say paradise I mean simplicity, very typical Caribbean place where the true beauty comes from nature. If you like loud, crowed and fancy ,this is not the place for you. There is a ramp for the boat. Property is in the ocean side not the bay facing Alligator reef. (a great famous fishing and diving place) If you go towards the right away from the canal you can walk and walk and see very interesting marine life or go in a kayak. At night you can have your BBQ facing the ocean, listing to the sound of the palm trees and feeling the ocean breeze, at the morning the sunrise is facing you. Very personal service and your pet does not need to stay behind. The rooms are impeccable clean they have full kitchen fully equip. There are also Macao’s that will call your attention every once in a while. This motel is close to the theater of the Seas, many restaurants like Green Turtle, Lazy Days Restaurant and many others. You are only 2 hours from Miami. Great for a private family weeding, and bring the family over. The motel will give you special rates for those occasions, or just because you deserve to get away!

Room Tip: There is only one room in the second floor with balcony a little more expensive but worth it.

We had a great stay in Unit 19, the upstairs unit overlooking the bay. It has a private deck. We were here in September, though so very few vacationers. This small property is older, but well maintained. There is a pool and hot tub. The other cottages are downstairs units which do not overlook the bay. Would definitely stay in this unit again!

Stayed here since we brought our dog. I like that on the website it shows you the actual room. Owners were very friendly and willing to help and answer any questions. Dog friendly property, they even supply bags so you can clean up after your dog. Very laid back atmosphere. Rooms were older key west style, but were very clean. Bathrooms were small. Parking is a little tight. The pool area is very nice and they have a dock with areas to sit. Two parrots are on the property which makes it more key west-ish. There are nicer hotels but when you come here you feel comfortable and at home. Much ambiance and def key west style! Thanks Bob and Kathy!

Stayed here July 13-15, 2012 and it was exceptional. Very clean, quiet and just perfect. We stayed in one of the complete rooms (efficiency) and it had everything you need to be comfortable on a long weekend - kitchen w/all the essentials, central air, beach towels, dining room, living room and bedroom...the pool and hot tub were inviting; BBQing with a perfect view, couldn't be more relaxing and My dog love it!

Stayed here over spring break 2012. Comfortable well appointed rooms, friendly and responsive staff, beautiful pool, quiet loaction. I have not one complaint, and would absolutely stay here again. Our room was large and contained a full size fridge which was great for our snacks and drinks during the day (and freezing some of our fishing bounty) and it was a great mid point to explore the keys from (it is about 20 miles south of Key Largo). While swimming off the beach didn't look so appealing, I don't know that I saw anywhere down there that had a fab beach - hence the lovely pool area. This is our spot whenever we go back t the keys - thanks to Bob and Kathy

Room Tip: there are 2 larger suites closest to the beach. All rooms are quiet - we were closest to HWY 1 and...

Stayed there memorial day weekend 2012 , the grounds and rooms were very clean and well maintained. Better than many no pet resorts I have seen . Their website does not do this place justice . Bob and Kathy were very caring and helpful during our stay . They definatly go above and beyond for their guests . We will definatly be staying there when we visit the keys ! Marina is well maintained. It's a little shallow but was easily navigable with my medium sized boat . Overall , it's a great place to stay !

Sadly we stayed for one night only at this wonderful motel on our way back from the Keys enroute to Miami. You reach the hotel directly off the main road and the minute you enter the car park the road outside seems to disappear and you are in beautifully planted gardents which lead out onto a small private beach and jetties. There is a pool and hot tub and two beautiful parrots called Tela and Dolly. We noted that the locals had brought their own dogs. A very family friendly place for older children and if we had more time we would definitely have spent more nights there. Cathy was very helpful and made great recommendations for dinner and breakfast. There is a beautiful sunset view from the jetties and I have to say this far surpassed our experience down in Key West.
