I use a manual wheelchair, and since the wheels will sink in soft sand, my husband and I never considered a beach vacation but this oceanfront condo changed our minds. This condo stands out from the rest because of its ideal location. It’s on the first floor overlooking a strip of white beach that’s right in front of the ocean, so I could sit in my wheelchair on its lengthy balcony and have a fun beach experience like I was sitting directly on the sand. Every day we were entertained by acrobatic jet skiers, parasailers, and windsurfers, and all kinds of boats, including huge ocean liners, sailed by. And from the balcony, I even got a “farmer’s tan”! Because this condo is a corner unit that wraps around the southwest side of the building, it’s very private and peaceful. Plus, it overlooks a bird sanctuary so a variety of birds (not seagulls) would sit in the nearby palm trees. We especially enjoyed watching the hawks successively grab fish out of the ocean, and seeing the pelicans do their ungraceful head-first dive for fish always made us chuckle. Also, on a nearby palm tree we spotted a large iguana that I nicknamed “Igor” because of its scary appearance. This condo is part of a complex that is impeccably maintained inside and out. At its center, there’s a beautiful tropical garden with a wide variety of flora. I especially admired the colorful orchards. Also, within the garden there are inviting sitting areas, charcoal grills, and picnic tables. The adjoining pool and spa area is kept spotless and the water was always crystal clear; however, there isn’t a handicap pool lift so I was unable to enter the pool or spa which was my only disappointment. The owner is a delight to work with. He listened to my special needs and determined correctly that his condo would be a perfect spot for me, so because of our wonderful stay at Joe’s condo my husband and I have a new love---the beach! Consequently, we hope to return to this wonderful condo often.pam

The Most Wonderful Relaxing Place in The Keys
My time in Key West was absolutely wonderful. I brought my sister and my brother with me for some much needed sibling bonding. This apartment let us rest, relax and play some board games. We all had our own bedrooms of course I got the Master Bedroom which was in itself a treat, but this condo has plenty of space for much more then three people, maybe more like eight. With this apartment ever single room has a wrap around views that is incredible from sun raises to sun sets. Key West is mostly sunny but the view from windows of this apartment is breathtaking. I had such a pleasure to open my eyes at morning and see the ocean as the very first thing...everyday. The view from the balcony is on ocean and nature reserve, it is amazing. This condo is also close everything KEY WEST.... with Duval Street being minutes away of course we hit the town for food, drinks and awesome night life, and had fun going from bar to bar feeling really care fee! We also took one of those sail boat tours which was really a cool thing to do. Key West is perfect combination of everything...is it places where is easy to shop, go to beautiful restaurant or to one of the little cuban places with the best coffee ever .....I like the style, no one makes big deal about things. I always have such a good time when I go there. And I always stay at this condo too if it is available, It's huge and comfortable. Parking is very close and all property is well secure. I liked the area in gardens where is really big pool and jacuzzi with plenty chairs and space. Everything is always clean. In every room was flat screen TV, what more can you want!!!! -MaribelMaribel R.

This property is amazing. You wake up to your own private view of the ocean! I love how in this unit, unlike others you have complete privacy. The pool and hot tub are beautiful. Every part of the island is 10 min away so we rented scooters. It was nice to have indoor parking for them at the garage. The unit was very clean. We stayed in and cooked some nights and the kitchen has a really nice lay out. Plus you get to eat your dinner on the deck looking at the ocean! I can't wait for next year to go back!!Dan D.

AMAZING PROPERTY LOCATION
The property offered the most beautiful sunrise views to wake up in bed to! Every bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to the balcony overlooking the ocean and if you leave the blinds open you wake up to the most spectacular sunrises. The pool area was beautifully maintained and even provided noodles to float in the water with as well as lap lanes for those that like to swim for exercise. There was also the availability of BBQ grills and picnic tables poolside if you wanted to enjoy an outdoor cookout. I was blessed to find two absolutely huge beautiful conch shells in the water while enjoying a walk along the beach.The location is also 5 minutes from Duval street which was nice because you could enjoy the craziness but have a place to chill and relax that was quIet. Would highly recommend renting scooters to get around, much easier to find parking than it is with a car. Property also offers a very helpful security staff. Definitely would return here it was a wonderful vacation experience!Teri O.
