We live in Paradise!
Kevin and Dana were the most gracious hosts at this absolutely lovely little resort. From fish identification, to history lessons, to sailing trips, to opening coconuts, they consistently went above and beyond for their guests. It's clear they love what they do. They are interesting, knowledgable, and fun!
The property is charming, had tons of character. The location is perfect for both jumping off to key largo or key west, but I also couldn't fight the desire to just sit and chill at the cottage other days. Highly, highly recommended. You don't get hospitality like this anywhere else.
We loved our stay here. Our unit had everything we needed - comfortable bed, bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, a small living room with TV, and air conditioning. Very clean. Plus, we had a private patio space with a propane BBQ. The property is nicely landscaped and well maintained. Kevin and Dana were wonderful hosts. They provided a warm welcome and great information about where to eat, and what to see and do. I made good use of the kayak, snorkel and fins. Highly recommended!
We had a fantastic time at Best of Both Worlds. The view was even more beautiful than advertised, and the cottage was just what we needed. Having kayaks and snorkel gear available for free was an added bonus. Our hosts, Kevin and Dana, were wonderful - always asking if we needed anything and giving us advice on area restaurants. Lots to do in the area! What a fabulous trip! We'll be back!
Welcome to a small paradise! It was our first experience staying on the boat and we really liked it. The space is limited, but it is really cozy and we had everything we needed. All the facilities are provided: kayaks, snorkels, hammocks, grill and hundreds of coconuts ;). The only problem was that we stayed only 2 nights! Kevin and Dana are very friendly, fantastic hosts, who made sure that our stay was perfect. Thank you!
Best of Both Worlds is nestled in this perfect little spot along the Overseas Highway. Very close to the beach park and a bunch of really great restaurants and other marine attractions. There was kayaking, sailing, bikes, snorkeling gear- all available on premises- and a very cozy Mom and Pop feel to the whole experience.
Kevin and Dana, the innkeepers, made me feel so welcome from the moment I arrived, they are incredibly warm and friendly people, and were happy to accommodate all of my requests during my stay.
I will definitely be back to Best of Both Worlds because I loved the cozy feel of the property and it was close to everything I wanted to do.
A five star personal experience in paradise!!
Kevin & Dana take pride in their property & making sure you have a wonderful stay. The cottage was immaculate, with everything you need. Dana put the kayak in the water for us to go adventuring & Kevin even took us on a sailboat sunset ride! This place is a true keys treasure.
My friend and I stayed on the boat for five nights and it was paradise. Kevin and Dana were great hosts very accommodating and a lot of fun to hang with. They told us great spots to visit and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Kevin even took us out on a sunset cruise and by the end of the week we didn't want to leave. The hosts made us feel right at home and the property is so beautiful. We will definitely be back but next time prefer to stay in one of the other rentals. The boat is fun and adventurous but it is like camping. Overall we had a wonderful and relaxing vacation and cant thank Kevin and Dana enough for providing us with this enjoyable experience.
Had a really nice time, Kevin and Dana were really helpful. Accomadation was basic but clean and everything was there that was needed.
It was nice to have the dock to sit around, drink, and listen to music as the sun set
Would stay there again.
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Best of Both Worlds. We'd give Best of Both Worlds 10 stars if we could. Let's see, would it be for the Resort itself, or for the hosts, Kevin and Dana? Hmmm.... both! We loved our cottage which looked right onto the bay. We had kayaks and bicycles available for our use at any time. We had resident parrot fish, other random fish, lobster, pelican, osprey, a bald eagle, and dolphin! Yes, dolphin - we had our own wild dolphin encounter when kayaking in the bay.
The cottage itself was perfect, the bed comfortable and the kitchen large enough to cook in. There were special touches in the cottage that let us know Dana and Kevin wanted us to feel special and comfortable. The location made getting to Key Largo AND Key West possible.
We both felt honored to be in the presence of Kevin and Dana. Kevin (see bio) rescued/trained animals and dolphins for 38 years. Wow. You'll want to have lots of conversations with both of them. And make sure to have Kevin take you out for a sunset sail. That was frosting on the cake.
Thank you Kevin and Dana, we are still smiling when we think of you and Best of Both Worlds!
Beautiful piece & peace of paradise. Comfortable & cozy stay right on the water. Wake up in the morning and snorkel or kayak. Have coffee and watch the fish from land. The water is clear enough. Gracious and accommodating hosts. I was even treated to a sunset sail. Cute dog to boot. I loved it!
Very nice people, and they were polite, and very clean, and leftroom very clean. They were just very very nice!
