I was in the Keys on business for two days and stayed at the Flora & Fauna Cottage. Very nice and relaxing with stunning grounds and well maintained. The owner was working keeping the grounds manicured at all times during my stay. It is beautiful! I sat outside at night and read and it was so peaceful and quiet. The only down side was it has very poor WiFi. I travel with my laptop all the time and staying in a hotel currently with 5 bars as well as at home. Here the signal was so weak it was one or two bars so one morning I was cut off more than 26 times while trying to work. I mentioned to the lady when I left just because they have a strong signal in the office does not mean anything as far as cottages. I am in the IT business and work with many cottages and hotels and you have to set up access points, boosters, and additional routers in order to accommodate cottages - you need at least 4-5 bars at all time. 1-2 bars is not strong enough in order to maintain a connection. I was unable to watch my TV shows online as the signal was not strong enough. If you are going for leisure only and do not need internet - it is ideal, but if you are going for business - you will have problems until they correct this problem. i also had problem on my HD Nook Plus with the signal. All in all it is a beautiful property and very quiet.
