I rented a week for April 2012 from Charles Roberts who advertises on Craigslist quite heavily.
My wife and I thought we might like to buy a timeshare week at this location. So, we visited the Florida Keys in October of 2011. We found Caloosa Cove to be very dated and unattractive. The landscaping looks like it hasn't been maintained for decades. The building exteriors are old and worn. The pool looked nice, but the decking had been replaced with simulated wood and the railings were splintered wood...not at all what you would expect around a swimming pool. Six months before our reservation, we cancelled our reservation with Charles Roberts and asked for a refund of our $200 deposit. He has refused to refund any of our deposit. So, beware of who you are dealing with when booking reservations for the Caloosa Cove resort.
We are very happy that we took the time to check out Caloosa Cove before attempting to buy a timeshare week there. It would have been a major mistake. There are many nicer places to stay in the Florida Keys.
