Gem on Long Beach
Our family stayed 3.5 months. Charming home, tastefully appointed. Great indoor/ outdoor spaces. Everything works. Owners are very responsive. Beautiful beach. Fantastic dock with mooring whips allows boating access (rare on that beach). Lots of wildlife in and out of the water. No light pollution; the Milky Way is right in your face!

Heaven on earth!
My favorite vacation spot! I have been going here every year (until 2020), and would love to continue in the future. Fish all day from the dock. Beach it. Enjoy the passing deer in the morning and evening. Easy drive to the best places when you can tear yourself away: Bahia Honda beach, Looe Key Dive Shop, Key West, No Name Pub, Robbie's, and Square Grouper. So relaxing, from the beautiful and open interior, the screened in porch, the beautiful outdoor patio, and the beach. The Bennetts are great hosts, and are quick to answer any questions or resolve any issue. I cannot wait to go back!
