home away from home is an understatement!
This was our first experience with home away! No worries, the description of of this home's location and amenities and well maintained features were not just accurate but underplayed in our opinion. The owner met us upon arrival, he was so pleasant and showed us all of the details of fans,AC system, stove and washer dryer. Also gave us some great information for dining, kayak rentals, grocery shopping. He couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome in his beautiful vacation home. We enjoyed every single moment and did not wish to leave. What I loved the most, and there were many things there that I loved, was waking up every morning,opening the expansive windows overlooking Hurricane Creek and sipping coffee while the fisherman were netting their bait. Can't wait for next year! We are so greatful for our time there"
Dream house by the sea.
Dream house by the sea.
We did rent Ricks nice house for two weeks. Its a really nice and clean house with everything you will need. The location was perfect for fishing, we did rent a 30"boat that we easly could park in the nice dockage outside the house. its easy to clean the boat from the dockage with the near by water discharge, we did also use the fishing cleaning table which was really nice. Its close to a bait shop and also marina/gas station. There are also many nice resturants around islamorada just a short drive with car or boat.
Overall we are more than satisfied, and Rick and his wife are very nice people!
Se u again!

Exceeded all expectations
This family friendly home was exactly as described and more. Rick met us and showed us around and had even decorated the home for Christmas. It was clean and well suited for our fishing family. We had two boats and the dockage was more than amble. The location was great with easy access to fishing, restaurants and snorkeling. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing for a relaxing, beautiful getaway. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Wonderful home on the bay side in Lower Matacumbe
We loved the Palma’s home in the Florida Keys. They were lovely people to rent from and were always available to us. Their home was furnished and equiped with everything one would need. The house was very clean and well maintained. We loved the view of the water from upstairs and the dock area where we kept our boat. You could be in the bay in minutes and easy access to the Atlantic quickly via Number 2 and 5 bridges. Manatees and dolphins were swimming right in front of the dock. A very relaxing, beautiful Keys retreat.
Love the house, perfect location, espically if y
Love the house, perfect location, espically if you have a boat, the view from the open upstairs over the canal was fantastic, saw manatee's that came into the canal and dolphins.
We’ll be back!!
Can’t say enough good things about our stay. Rick was awesome and informative about the house. We enjoyed the back yard and the dock almost every night. The views from the house are incredible. Rick has it set up for any fisherman to step right in and hit the water. The location is perfect. Can’t wait to go back!!
A Little Slice of Paradise
My company is doing a job in the area of this home, so we were on an extended stay. The home and view were beautiful. It made being away from home a lot easier.

Delightful -Roomy -What a view!
The owner is wonderful to work with. Accommodations were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could need for even a month stay. Outside, the dock was wonderful to sit on in the morning afternoon or evening and watch Manatee go by, some small sharks, large tarpon and fish galore. And when the new underwater dock light illuminates in the evening it sets up a whole new viewing experience under the water! Fantastic!
Plenty of outdoor seating for everyone on the Adirondack chairs. There is a large tackle room on the main level to store your fishing equipment in between trips. Large dock space to tie up your own boat as well.
We are planning to return next year!
Thank you again for the hospitality!
There is so much to say about this home and how comfortable we felt . It is obvious the owner pays attention to detail . I packed for a months stay in this Covid environment and quickly realized I over packed ! The home had all the extras , from rice cooker to bait freezer to bait and fish trash . The owner thought of everything and was responsive but not intrusive . Just plain respectful and you can tell they want you to enjoy your stay . There were three of us and two dogs most of the time and the property afforded extra space. We were there during the holiday and they had left a festive table cloth and Christmas flowers. Notes how to operate or find everything ! Clean and comfortable home with many upgrades but still the old Keys charm . Our boat fit perfect at the dock and easy access to ocean . We will be back !
Property has great boat dockage. We enjoyed the manatees when we could spot them from the beautiful view from kitchen. Everything we needed was there for our use. The paddle boards need some repair as they held too much water. Great place to rent!
