Guest access

You are welcome to enjoy our entire property. Please keep our property clean and lovely. Also fishing is not available on our estate. We reside in the Florida Keys Sanctuary. Also no smoking. On a special note: We offer our guests more of an intimate boutique resort. Our beautiful homes are located on (2) pristine acres directly on the Gulf of Mexico. We offer a huge back yard, 3 kayaks, snorkel gear & more. Please let me stress!...we're not a condo, were not a mobile home on a canal & we're not time shares that are built side by side. We actually own 25' of the bay bottom. So I hope I've conveyed how lovely and special our 2 acre private and GATED estate really is. Please email me if you ever desire more information. We love our home so much that we've built a safe living aquarium in our lagoon area. It's taken since 1970's we feed our fish and NO there are NO sharks or harmful sea-life. Just beautiful sites under the water. At the beach area is a zero entry and by the time you're in the lagoon area it's about 3.5 -4 feet. You have to swim out fairly far to get to 10 feet. We encourage everyone SAFETY first when you move past our estate perimeter and grounds. Always life jackets on when in Kayaks. Safety ;). So this is why we say the following. We're part of the Marine Sanctuary to save our lovely sea-life. Many guests come to visit and want to fish of the docks however we kindly ask you to join us in understanding we don't permit fishing because we want to have amazing sea-life for the next generations. And too... our county has created many new public fishing areas for visitors to the keys to fish. I also offer a wonderful list of guides for both deep sea and back country. Thank you for protecting our sea-life for future generations.

Interaction with guests

I'm right on the estate in the Little Terra Cotta Cottage with a green tin roof.

Dish washing and the hand soap that is provided for you we ask that you please use this as it is the official organic soap for our estate & environmentally protective of our beautiful waters and sea life. that is very good for the environment please do not go out and purchase over-the-counter dishwashing soap or hand soap. It is not compatible with our environment. Nor is it permissible.

Towels
We provide 1 towel per guest. At certain times I can offer additional towels for families lodging more than 1 week. The Florida Keys are a very very fragile necessity to south Florida. The more washing and phosphates we pour into our oceans the faster it dies. Therefore I can't express enough to you these sincere points.
1. 1 towel is provided for each guest.
2. If u require additional towels or beach towels I would ask that you pack them.
3. When lodging more than 1 week towels will be provided after the 3rd day upon request.
4. We sincerely thank you for being so considerate of our very fragile oceans and sea life and we ask all guests to conserve both "water". We are still also on septic tanks which means that long showers are not permissible.
5. Traveling with children. You will most likely need more towels so I encourage you to bring yours from home. We provide 1 for each person in your party.
5. Finally please remember you're our guests in our homes. We provide what we normally would for our own family and friends. A hotel or motel we aren't. So we go by the courtesy policy of thinking of everyone whose lodging with us and having just what we need for you. Thank you for understanding and enjoying our beautiful Florida Keys and not leaving a carbon footprint...behind that's not too large ; )
6. All waterfront tables, chairs, water flotations, kayak jackets, kayaks and chaise lounges. Need to be returned at the end of the day use to the proper storage area. Either behind the fence area or just adjacent to the tree area. Please check with The Bennett Family as to where to return items you're utilizing by the waterfront. These are our homes and we try to keep everything tidy for other guests just arriving. They would like to see a beautiful prestine waterfront. Thank you kindly in advance.
7. Washing and drying clothing: If your party is staying longer than 6 days we are happy to accommodate you with 1 load of clothing. If guests are staying under 6 days we are happy to guide you to the nearest laundry mat. Monroe County is now charging owners for every drop on and off property. So water and a/c is very precious to those of us that reside in Paradise ; )
**Very Important** Please remember we are on septic tanks in the Florida Keys and the toilet paper MUST be 1 ply. Preferbly Scotts brand or Charmin. Please check 1 ply. Thank you.

We thank you for to staying with our family we are very happy to host you. Air B and B has been a wonderful avenue to meet the WORLD : ) we dearly adore hosting guests and sharing our family estate as well as secret treasures of locals around the Florida Keys. With that said we are not a registered bed and breakfast. What we are is exactly what Air BnB States; room's of all different types and budgets . We are also not a Resort. So we kindly ask to respect the families wishes by returning all waterfront equipment lounges, chairs, flotation devices, tables and umbrellas at the end of the end of your day use, to where the family stores items. That way our beautiful beach waterfront is lovely and prestine for all of our wonderful guests. Thank you in advance for putting items away. Your wet items are to go in the proper place as in clotheslines. And placing your garbage in the receptacles provided for you. We worked diligently to recycle. And we encourage our guests to do the same. You will notice the blue recycle Bins and Blue large garbage cans… those are our recycle Bins. The black and grey garbage cans are provided for your wet garbage.
Again, thank you for staying with our family and respecting our property and homes as you would yours ; )

If you're reading this review and the room is still available, just do it! Joyce has a convenient, clean, beautiful, and most importantly a bang for your buck with this property.

If you are looking to take in some key largo sunsets, swim in clear blue waters right of the dock and cook up fresh fish...look no further. Very comfortable accommodations. Quite, peaceful and beautiful. The availability of kayaks paid for themselves (usually 30$ to rent elsewhere) never met the host but they where great at communicating. Pro tip #1: go to key largo fisheries and buy fresh mahi mahi and cook it up around sunset and enjoy a great meal by the water at back. Pro tip #2: if you want some adventure and you have kayaked before, paddle out to the mangrove island off the dock to the south. It's a 2.5 hour round trip but it's worth it.

This air bnb is unique, with some nice characteristics and some not so nice. My boyfriend and I stayed in room 1 in the main house. The room had minimal amenities- a king size bed, a dresser, and some side tables, and we shared a bathroom with room 2. The house was humid and musty, but we were able to adjust the fan and air conditioning within our room. In the main areas of the house we were not allowed to adjust the thermostat. We had access to large kitchen, dining room, and family room. The kitchen has a stove, fridge, kreurig, and specific shelves to keep your food. Down the driveway is the ocean access where there are kayaks for use and chairs to take in the beautiful view. The property is quiet, and located a short drive from a grocery store and many restaurants. For the affordable price this air bnb is decent, but be warned that you are sharing the property with up to 4 other air bnbs. The communication from the hosts was great and there is a youtube video that has a ton of information about the property. When we didn't receive the gate code, we messaged the host and received a reply almost immediately.

Overall I had a good stay at the Bennett's property. There was some miscommunication prior to arriving which did delay our check in. Sharing the bathroom with room 2 was perfectly fine, however other guests from camping and different properties came into the house to use the bathroom and kitchen, which made it more communal than it should have been. Leslie was very friendly and helped us out if we needed it. Great available use of the kayak and snorkel gear, along with some quiet seafront sunbathing. Definitely recommend this Airbnb!!

The view is wonderful, the ocean is right in the backyard. You have access to kayaks and snorkel gear for a limited time which is great. This is a very bare bones air bnb. Bring your own trash bag as there is no garbage, especially if you plan on making your own meals. Also no towels for clean up provided, if making meals I would suggest bringing napkins or paper towels to clean up any messes.

My friend and I stayed for one night and the house was ok....for one night. Upon entering the home smelled very old and musty. I slept ok and everything else was fine. I was kinda surprised that there was no trash can in the kitchen. Even if they would have three labeled with the room number it would have worked. We didn't use any of the amenities. We walked out to the private waterfront area. That was beautiful and was worth it for the view. Communication was great and we figured everything out pretty easily. It's very close to Shooters where we went for dinner. Overall it was a stop for one night and sufficient.
