We had a great time at this fabulous little place! The kids loved exploring the big, green garden and we loved that it was right on the water and in a perfect location to explore all the Keys. The studio apartment we rented was amazingly clean and had all the amenities we needed. Kevin and Dana were fantastic, friendly hosts.
Lovely hosts who will do almost anything to create a perfect vacation for you. Sweet, small resort with the beautiful Florida Bay right outside your home. A little bit of Paradise.
The cottage was spacious - and well equipped. We loved the outdoor table and grill. The perfect spot to cook up fresh caught lobsters. The setting was exactly as described and Kevin and Dana were available to help out with restaurant recommendations and directions. Mostly we just relaxed by the water and enjoyed the sun and sea.
Best of Both Worlds is an older place and somewhat on the querky side however Kevin and Dana were very friendly and accommodating abd work hard at keeping the place as presentable as possible.
Great little place. Had a good time!
Like a 57 cadillac convertible this property is old keys. The water setting is great with sailboats and kayak at the ready. Rent the whole compound for those large family gatherings. Kevin and Dana like the property are what the Keys are all about. Both will take care of any problems quickly and give you recommendations for eating and viewing. Or simply enjoy the experiences of your hoists that include some wild animal experiences in Alaska. A great place to relax and off the highway for those seeking solitude. Buy your groceries 20 miles north before you get to the place as only small quick marts are nearby. Get amazing Cuban coffee 2 miles south at Habanero's.
We had a fantastic week at "Best of Both Worlds" with our two dogs, staying in a small cottage right on the water. It was only Kevin and Dana's third week as the new property managers, so we were completely blown away by how much they already knew about the property and the surrounding area. But then we found out why they were able to "hit the ground running" in their new post: Kevin had spent many years working as a marine mammal trainer in the Keys, and both he and Dana had spent several years managing inns, restaurants, and various retail operations in Georgia and other places. We really benefitted from their collective years of experience and were impressed that the owner of the property, Bob, was able to find such a knowledgeable and experienced couple to manage his property. (Especially considering that it is small -- only four units total).
The cottage was cozy, uncluttered, and comfortable -- all of the things we look for in a vacation rental. It's situated somewhat close to two of the property's other rental units, but the patio area is fairly private and only a few steps from the water. We had a nice time kayaking in the tandem kayak one afternoon, and also doing a bit of swimming in the shallow, sandy area off of the wharf. We are nature lovers (especially birds), so it was great fun for us to just sit and enjoy the coconut palms and other tropical plants on the property, and to watch the wildlife, including brown pelicans, white ibis, egrets, herons, gulls, terns, and also a huge, green iguana hanging out in a nearby tree. One morning Kevin took us to a neighboring wharf where we could see hundreds of gorgeous, tropical fish. Next year we will make sure to go snorkeling, as clearly this property is an excellent spot for that.
All of this had already exceeded our expectations, and then came the icing on the cake: we had a chance to go sailing with Kevin and Dana one afternoon, a couple of hours before sunset. It was our first time sailing, and we were beyond thrilled.
If you are traveling with dogs, you will be very comfortable staying on this property with Kevin and Dana as your hosts. Since Kevin was an animal trainer for many years, and he and Dana have had many dogs in their lifetime, we hardcore "dog people" were made to feel right at home -- more than we have ever felt in all of our years traveling with dogs. The four of us are already planning to book at least a week for next year, and we certainly look forward to seeing Kevin and Dana again.
Thank you, Kevin and Dana! See you in 2014.
-Anne, Nathan, Greta and Sophie (Cincinnati)
Dear Greta and Sophie:
We miss you already! Thank your parents for the such positive feedback and we can't wait to see you all again (even your parents, Ann and Nathan!) :-) Thanks alot for staying with us, we had a great time and we really do hope you come back soon! Give the puppies a kiss for us! Kevin and Dana
We had a wonderful time at Kevin and Dana's cottage! They were incredible hosts, ensuring all of our needs were met. We look forward to going back to this peaceful and relaxing place soon.
Everything as described ... only better.Very relaxing.
Linda ist eine angenehme und hilfreiche Gastgeberin. Die Cottage ist wunderschön gelegen und die Einrichtung zweckdienlich. Das Bad ist leider schäbig.
Wir verbrachten 2 sehr erholsame Tage in Ruhe und Natur und genossen die einmalige Lage. Mückenspray empfohlen.
