Give yourself 3 days minimum. Being in the Florida Keys means:
Fugetaboutit! You won't get the "awesome-feeling" on the first day, no matter how relaxed you think you might be....and Charlie Jr. will take you there, all the way!
He is a soulful mate, a fantastic host and buddy at the same time - "Keys time".
The units are all you can wish for and more, the location is amazing and the sunsets...fugetaboutit! You have your own private yard, dock, tiki hut and starry skies galore.
Got fish? Grill it up and chill out. You're home.
Been there twice and planning for the next trip already, although living only 2 hours away. This place is paradise!

My husband and son stayed a few nights on a fishing tour of the coast and loved it so much we cancelled plans to go to Sanibel and stayed here a second time a few days later. The fishing off the dock was great and varied (shark, snapper, barracuda, bonefish), the wildlife was plentiful (rays, manatees, sea turtles and countless birds) and inspiring, the accommodations were just right..one bedroom and huge family room with couches nice bathroom and full kitchen, the owner's dogs were absolutely precious, and the host, Charlie was friendly, funny, and generous with his time and expertise. He took my son on a spur of the moment evening fishing boat excursion. What a nice guy! His dogs fish off the dock by jumping on top of the fish that come by. The sunset was breathtaking. Wish we could have stayed longer and definitely plan to return.

Everything stated about the property in the listing is accurate but possibly understated! We felt like we stayed at our own place because everything was available to us! Very peaceful place and the sea life was plentiful. The hospitality was first rate! Thanks for the 'secret' ingredient for the grouper, Charlie! We stopped and picked some up on the way home. :) Thanks again for a great stay, and we hope to be back to the Keys to stay at Sue's Promise next year... We envy your job, Charlie....lol ;)

“Great location”
Reviewed December 6, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This was just picked off the Internet. Very attractive pictures and reasonable value for large 1 bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen and laundry. First floor apartment with easy outdoor access to large back yard with dock. We docked our 17' skiff for no additional charge. All the conveniences of home, wireless, gas grill, plenty of parking.

We stayed at Sue's Promise for four nights and wish we could have stayed a month! The Bay apartment was excellent and the hosts Charlie and his Dad could not have done any more to make this stay perfect. An excellent venue for fishing or exploring the keys. We used the Kayaks which were great fun, we caught fish and they were BBQ'd within the hour for our evening meal.
Perfect
