You'll feel like you're staying at a private resort in this ocean side community. Enjoy the large heated pool, hot tub & swimming lagoon. Head over to our community store which has a vast selection of items from groceries, bait, beer, wine, souvenirs & 24 hr ice machine. Bring your own boat & launch at one of our 2 boat ramps with fuel pump, fish cleaning station & boat wash.
Our cottage (vintage trailer) is located in a beautiful 24-hour gated community called Venture Out and it is about 35 minutes to Duval Street in Key West (depending on traffic).
There are 3 high efficiency A/C wall units that do a great job at keeping the space cool along with one ceiling fan, and a 16 inch pedestal fan you can move around. As long as the doors stay shut, it stays nice and cool inside.
You walk through the front door into the main level where the living room with couch, corner loveseat and 42" Roku t.v. is situated. Note: The couch in the living room is not that comfortable. We provide a 3 inch memory foam top for couch should anyone in your party need to use it. We also provide a self-inflatable air mattress that fits one comfortably.
Behind living room is a decent sized master bedroom with a comfortable KING bed & dresser. Also, some sheets in use are 100% organic bamboo.
Upstairs (3 steps) is the Kitchen, dining room, laundry cubby, very small bathroom with shower and tub, small 2nd bedroom, and back hallway storage area.
2nd bedroom has a queen bed & dresser that is super comfortable. Note: This room is very small.
Kitchen is completely stocked with updated stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove and all the smaller appliances you would need: coffee pot, water steamer, toaster, microwave, blender, mixer, etc.
Includes: cooking oil, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, pure raw cane sugar, Stevia or Truvia, creamer, sandwich bags, tinfoil, plastic wrap, cork screw, garlic press, can/bottle opener, basic condiments such as mayo and mustard, etc. Basically, the kitchen is stocked with almost everything you might find in your own kitchen.
ALTHOUGH IT SLEEPS 6, THERE IS AN EXTRA CHARGE OF $25 PER NIGHT PER PERSON AFTER 4 PEOPLE which will be reflected in Airbnb's breakdown to you.
Our community also has its own store open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It has an ATM, 24 hr ice machine, boat fuel, boat washing station, fish cleaning station. It also has just about everything you could need--grocery items, beer/wine, bait, water shoes, souvenir items, sunscreen, etc.
Only one vehicle, one motorcycle and one golf cart is allowed on the property driveway. This unit has a parking space which is larger than most and can fit a big truck if that's what you have. [Absolutely no commercial vehicles]
The space has a private back yard which is rare in this community because most lots have rear neighbors. There are bushes along the fence line in the back helping to block the street view.
There are several beach chairs in back along with a patio glass table and chairs. We also provide several life jackets, Snorkel gear (4 sets), 2 fishing poles, 2-3 beach chairs & umbrella, blow up toys for beach, and ice chests which are all located in the back hallway storage area for your use.
THIS HAS AN EXTREMELY SMALL BATHROOM THAT IS LOCATED IN VERY CLOSE PROXIMITY TO BACK BEDROOM. SOME PEOPLE ARE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THIS ARRANGEMENT AND COMPLAIN ABOUT IT LATER. PLEASE DO NOT BOOK IF THIS IS YOU. REMEMBER THERE ARE NICE AND VERY LARGE BATHROOM/SHOWER FACILITIES ONLY STEPS AWAY FROM OUT THE FRONT DOOR FOR YOU TO USE AS WELL.
HUGE BBQ IN BACK FOR GRILLING.
NO BEACH IN THIS COMMUNITY
NOT A SUPER NICE PLACE! OLD AND QUIRKY!
THIS IS A TRAILER FROM THE 70'S WITH AN ADDITION.
BIKES ARE OLD, OFTEN NEED AIR IN TIRES AND A BIT RUSTY (pump provided) Sometimes they have other issues too.
I WILL SAY IT AGAIN: THIS IS NOT A FANCY PLACE!
IT IS OLD & RUSTIC
VERY SMALL 2nd bedroom is IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO BATHROOM. Although we have a new and modern bathroom sink and commode, tub enclosure might feel tight if you are over 6ft tall. If you are a large or tall person, there is a clean and large bath house located about 45 ft from this unit with spacious additional showers, dressing rooms and laundry facility.
(Laundry also inside unit)
NOT SUITABLE FOR TODDLERS ESPECIALLY CRAWLERS
This space is a very old single trailer with an addition. Both sides are RENNOVATED and somewhat updated. However, it is so old, the amount of renovation still needed to fine tune this place seems endless.
SHARP EDGES WALLS/WINDOWS: We have noticed sharp edges here and there, especially on downstairs walls and window areas.
DIFFICULT TO GET KAYAKS TO WATER AND PUT IN WATER
One guest says this about kayaks:
"Almost all of the bungee straps and tie down pieces are worn or already completely snapped it makes it impossible to use the kayaks and bring any sort of cooler/water/life jacket with you."
The space is located approx. 600 ft. from an ocean viewing/fishing common area for private dips and beautiful sunset and sunrise ocean views. It is also where you can put the kayaks in. The kayaks are two seaters, large and heavy so we have provided kayak carts (with instructions) so that you can get them to the water from the rental unit.
I have had several complaints that it is difficult to get kayaks into the water at the common space mentioned above. Meaning your only other option for getting them to the water would be pulling them on their carts all the way to the boat ramp which is about a 10 minute walk.
On your way to check in, you may want to stop in Big Pine at the Winn Dixie grocery store (about 10 North of rental) to do any big grocery shopping.
We are located on Kemp Channel, one of the most accessible boating channels to both the beautiful backcountry as well as a quick ten-minute run to the open Atlantic and it’s Coral Reefs. Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary is a nearby must for snorkeling and diving in the crystal blue Atlantic. On the gulf side, Cudjoe Key offers the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge…A kayak or small boat paradise.
The Looe Key Reef Resort & Dive Center is only about 5 min. away by car and is "hands down" one of the best places to set up a snorkeling or dive charter. Divers tell us it is better than Key Largo. I have personally taken the snorkel charter and loved it! Book in advance or there may not be availability and that goes for any activity in the Keys. There are many other local snorkeling/scuba diving tours to choose from but again, the charter leaving out of Looe Key Reef and Dive Resort is the closest and one of the best in the Keys. The price is about $35 per person and it includes snorkel gear and is about 3 hours.
Provided at the rental in the back hallway storage area will be snorkeling gear with fins, life jackets, fishing poles, ice chests, & other miscellaneous items for your use. I have also left boat charter and other attraction rack cards and various coupons inside unit.
Bahia Honda State Park is touted for having the best beaches in the Keys and is about 20 minutes North! And 10 minutes further North is another one of the Key's best beaches which is in Marathon--Sombrero Beach (even bigger than Bahia Honda and just as nice).
Great Heron National Wildlife Refuge is right on the other side of our island! (We are on Cudjoe Key)
And of course, the charm and history of Key West is about 20 miles South!
We are also close to Big Pine Key, Marathon, Bahia Honda State park, Grimmel Grove Nursery Sanctuary, Blue Hole Sanctuary on Big Pine Key and Sunset Park on Ramrod. The Heritage Trail Bike Path crosses near the community and goes many miles east and west. Winn Dixie (big grocery store) is on Big Pine Key (10 min. away) and many local groceries are within a mile of the community. There are lots of casual dining and upscale dining located within a few miles of the community. The best cuban coffee and sandwich shop is located on Ramrod Key (5 min.).
