About the owner: We are from Miami and before we purchased this house we would drive down to Key Largo to eat and spend the day. We decided to buy a property to enjoy and call our home away from home. We are proud hosts and want to make your travel experience a memorable one. We are available to serve you at any time and don’t mind close communication.
Why this property? We loved this property the minute we walked in. This was the first and only house we looked at when looking for properties to purchase. We loved the location and it had a special feeling to it where we felt immediately at peace. We still feel this way and hope everyone who stays here experiences this feeling of peace and relaxation.

A month in paradise
We had a wonderful time! Beautiful house, everything brand new, recently renovated. Owners provided plenty of everyday supplies for us, and all the cooking gadgets we could wish for were there, even an air fryer! The location is walking distance from quite a few great restaurants; the main land is accessible by car, so we enjoyed Everglades and Miami attractions, about an hour away from us. The backyard is facing a channel; we had manatees and birds coming right to our house! We enjoyed two kayaks that came with the house, extra bonus! Grettel is a wonderful host, she replied to the messages literally within 15 min. We had the microwave broken, and she ordered a new one immediately! She also helped us to restore the internet quickly when it suddenly went down (happened only once in a month long stay). Thank you Grettel and family for letting us enjoy your house, we greatly enjoyed our break from cold winter!
