When you first drive off of the main road, it doesn't seem like much. But it quickly transforms into a private beach all to yourself. Now, the "beach" is nothing to brag about but once you get past the seaweed and shoreline mush, the sand bars and clear water run for miles. The pier is neat for fishing or sunning. Get cottage 5 if you can because it's closest to the ocean and off to itself. All the cottages are really a stones throw from the water but we really enjoyed our own little space. The staff are friendly and the same people who take your credit card and reservations are also the people who make the beds, so everyone is equal and they have a vested interest in your happiness. Now, this is no Ritz carlton but everything you need is there. The rooms are like modular units and they are the bare necessities but you wont be in there much. Please do not go if you do not like Dogs. There will be people there, including me, with one or more dogs as this is a very dog friendly place. We all pick up after our hairy family members and fun is had by all. There are many regulars at this place and it is warm and relaxing. Each hut has it's own hammock and cook out bbq so pack up on groceries and plan to hang out for the week or weekend. You will quickly make this place your own, especially if you live within a few hours radius. Take the kayaks for a stroll (we saw two baby sharks) and see the island. Play volleyball on the sand court and get romantic with your partner under the starry sky at night surrounded by lit up palm trees. It's an hour ride down to the main part of key west to see the commotion if you'd like.It's money well spent if you are laid back and you love your pooch! We go back every year.
