We had a great trip. The house was large, open and clean with a great patio off all three bedrooms upstairs. Perfect spot for a book or just to look out over the ocean. The location was perfect for us, walk across the street to the beach, easy drive to shopping and rented paddleboards that were great in the canal out back. The weather was warm and sunny everyday and the water clear and very warm. I highly recommend fishing, kayaking and a snorkel trip to the reef while you are in the area.
Loretta's house was wonderful. Well-maintained, good layout, and 10 seconds' walk from the beach. Everyone we dealt with was really nice, flexible, and easy to work with. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. Thanks Loretta!
Our family had wonderful trip to the keys. The house is large and clean in a perfect location. You can walk across the road to Sombrero Beach or launch a kayak or paddle board from the dock in the backyard. All the shopping needs are less than 5 minutes away. Loretta was one of the best hosts we ever had. She was quick to reply and give us helpful tips about the area. Will definitely stay in the same house in the future.
We stayed for a little more than two weeks at Lorettas beautiful house which is perfectly situated directly across a little street from the main entrance to the beach. The water there is deep enough to swim in and is all fine white sand. The beach is cleaned at least twice a week. The upper balcony is a perfect place to sit, read and look out at the ocean.
If there is one negative, you should consider if walking up and down 2 flights of stairs regularly is suitable for you.
We are a group of 5 nurses that just returned yesterday (November 2014) from Loretta's beautiful home on Sombrero Beach. It was the perfect week. I really feel it is extremely difficult to accurately describe the home and surroundings. Most of us have been on beach vacations many times but this was definitely our best. Beach access couldn't be better and it is an extremely quiet area with the best of our earth's beautiful nature at your doorstep. The home is perfect - large, very clean with every possible need met. We loved sitting on the deck on the second floor facing the beach. We needed a repair done on a patio door and was completed on a weekend within a few hours of our call. The beach in the front and a beautiful canal in the back with beach chairs, towels, grill and patio table and chairs make the perfect location. Again, every need is met and done with beauty and top quality. We are all anxious to return to Loretta's for more than one week to have the time to truly explore all of nature that surrounds the area. I can recommend this home without one hesitation - it was perfect!!!
Loretta - you and Barbara are the perfect hosts.
Loretta is a truly fantastic hostess. From the initial inquiry, booking questions, to accommodating our special requests she was sweet and very responsive. My family and I have never been to the keys and we had a wonderful week long vacation. This house is Fantastic with great amenities, beautiful views from all the balconies, updated décor, kitchen stocked with every appliance you could possibly need, beach chairs and toys for the kids, and a private dock out back. You can’t beat the location directly across from the beach and the playground for the children. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants an affordable yet luxurious vacation home, and I hope we are able to stay there again!
