Adorable guest room with a queen size bed, message chairs, tv, and mini frig. Lush tropical landscaping, heated pool, hot tub, outdoor hanging bed, and outdoor shower. We live in a perfect area to see all of the Lower Keys.
We have a Charming Guest Room that is part of our "slice of paradise" and we would love to invite you to stay with us. Our property is very large and private with lush tropical landscaping, heated pool, heated outdoor shower, hot tub, and an outdoor queen size hanging bed.
The guest room is quaint and cozy with a queen size bed, and a reading area with two massage chairs, mini frig and tv. The home is a lovely older home with a lot of character. The house has beautiful iron-wood floors, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living room, and Florida-room. The whole house is open to our guests and they are more than welcome to use our kitchen, pots/pans, coffee-maker, oil, spices and such (breakfast is not included). Guests would have their own private bathroom; however, it is not adjacent to the room and you would have to walk through part of the house.
We also have two other listing "Charming Caravan in Tropical Oasis" and "Charming Cottage in Tropical Oasis". The property is shared with our guests from our other listing. Since many of our guests are international, it makes for some very interesting conversations around the pool.
We are a half hour drive from Key West and our area is great for snorkeling, fishing, diving, boating, kayaking, and general outdoor activities. Bahia Honda State Park is 10 miles up the road and is rated as one of the top ten beaches in Florida and is the only naturally occurring sand beach in the Keys. Our guests are welcome to use our beach things: coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, hammock, snorkeling gear, bikes, gas grill .…. and, our washer and dryer are available to our guests as needed. Just down the road from us is Boon Docks Grille and Draft House. It is a nice Tiki Hut style restaurant with live music in the evenings and good food. They have a very nice upscale miniature golf course that is a lot of fun.
We are world travelers ourselves and love sharing our place with other travelers. We have had guests from all over the world and have enjoyed meeting so many interesting people. We are very cool people and I am into the arts and my husband loves to cook, do yoga, and play volleyball. We have an adorable tabby cat, Dahlia, who is just as cool as we are. We have lived in the Keys for 25 years and have many great stories to share. To help in planning your holiday, we will send you some information about our area.
If you have never used the airbnb web-site before you, will be very impressed with how well organized it is and the safeguards they have put into place.
The price may vary during peak season and holidays and you can check on the calendar link for availability and pricing.

We look forward to your visit and please feel free to ask any questions
The whole property is open to our guests to enjoy
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet our guests when they first arrive and introduce them to the property, show them maps, and help them plan their time. Often, we will have a drink out by the pool in the evening and ask our guests about their day. It makes us very happy to see our guests have a great holiday.
Our area is a wonderful balance of quietness but yet close enough to so many activities. From our home you can walk to a Cuban corner market for the best coffee, a great restaurant with live music, and a dive shop to take you out to the reef.
Having a car is best but there is a public transportation bus stop just down the road.
We are very easy going people and you will have keys to the place to come and go as you please. We have only 2 rules: you need to have a sense of humor and because we live here, have other guests, and neighbors we require guests to use a quite voice when outdoors.
My friend and I had a good time during our stay at Robin and Steve. The room is very nice and quiet. Steve is a good host who gives us useful information about surroundings. But if you are a neat freak as I am, you may have a problem with ants and spiders in this place. Anyhow, we would like to recommend Robin and Steve to others.
Robin & Steve ont été adorable pendant notre séjour.
Nous sommes arrivés tard et ils nous ont très bien accueillis.
Robin nous a donné quelques bonnes adresses sur la région.
Rentrer le soir et se faire un petit jacuzzi est juste parfait !
Steve and Robin are very friendly and have a great sense of humour. Their "slice of Paradise" diserves its nickname and is perfectly located to visit the Keys. There is no beach with an easy reach by foot but it's very commun on the Keys because a big part of the coast is private. But there are many National State Park with very nice beaches and perfect accomodations.
Very great stay !
Steve et Robin sont très chaleureux et plein d'humour. Leur "petit coin de paradis" porte bien son nom et est idéalement bien placé pour servir de point de départ pour profiter des Keys. Pas de plage accesible à pied mais ce qui est commun sur les Keys car une grande partie du littoral est privé. Par contre il existe plusieurs National State Park avec de très belles plages et des aménagements parfaits.
Superbe séjour !
Steve and Robin were wonderful! They made us feel very welcome in there home. Steve was great suggesting the perfect beach for us. We will definitely recommend their property for anyone and plan to return there ourselves. The Cuban market uo the street has the best Cafe de Leche.
The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Many amenities were available and apppreciated. In hind site, it would have been more appropriate for an anniversary trip to book earlier as the only accommodation left was inside their home. The other units would afford more privacy. That was our fault and there were no problems at all.
We had a wonderful time at Robin and Steve's little slice of paradise. The room was very clean and our host were so lovely. We even had the time to chat and got to know each other. Spending some time by the pool and the wonderful surroundings made our stay in the keys a fantastic experience. And the house is just half an hour drive from key West. We strongly recommend a snorkelling trip to the Looe Key coral reef with the dive centre with the same name. In short: Wonderful.
Liebevoll und individuell eingerichtetes Haus im lokalen Stil. Sehr liebevoll gepflegter Garten. Robin und Steve sind sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Man bekommt wertvolle Tips für Ausflüge (z.B. nach Key West) und Restaurants. Internet super. Küchenbenutzung ist für die Zubereitung von kleinem Frühstück und Snacks ideal.

I am an outgoing person who likes to laugh, travel and dabble in artwork. My husband's thing is cooking, yoga, beach volley ball. We have traveled all over the US with Maui being our favorite vacation spot. Outside the US we have traveled to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Istanbul, Morocco and most of Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Greece. In my younger years I backpacked throughout Mexico and sailed throughout the Bahamas. I love meeting people from different cultures and believe that life should be an adventure.
We enjoy music and our evenings might be spent sipping some wine by the pool while listening to some good jazz music. My favorite part of the yard is the hanging bed from the Cabana; I love to lay there and relax while looking at our wonderful backyard.
We have lived in the keys for 23 years and love the laid back atmosphere. We have the best of all worlds; a great place to live and a good location to be able to travel from.
