About This Listing
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.

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.
Robin and Steve's place was amazing. The backyard area, with pool, hot tub, hanging bed, etc. was very nice. The premises were clean and comfortable, and the hosts we very pleasant, providing my wife and I several great recommendations in the area. Having spent a few nights in Key West before arriving, Ramrod Key (much slower pace) was a great way to relax and unwind. Looking forward to hopefully visiting again in the future.
The old adage, "arrive as strangers, leave as friends" rings true at Robin and Steve's cozy home. We had a wonderful time exploring this beautiful area and relaxing in this quiet neighborhood. The backyard is like a five star resort! Beautifully landscaped with pool, hot tub, canopy bed, outdoor shower and a laser show! Everything and more is at your fingertips!! So convenient to Key West and Bahia Honda State Park and fabulous eateries. It is a great value you won't find anywhere else. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. We absolutely loved staying there and feeling like locals. Thank you, Robin and Steve for the perfect getaway.
Loved Robin and Steve's place. We stayed in the room inside the house and it was very nice. The fridge and massage chairs are a great addition and the room is a good size. They were very helpful with recommendations of things to do in the lower keys area as well as Key West. This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a great one!
What a delightful place to stay! I am so happy we found this listing. Everything is as described. They have plenty of things to borrow for a beach day like chairs, snorkeling stuff, and other items. Their house is beautiful and the backyard is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing and tourist-ing. I would definitely come back myself and would recommend this as a great place to stay while exploring the Keys and Key West (about 25 minutes away). Thank you to Robin and Steve for being great hosts and making our stay as cozy as described in the listing.
We recently had a five night stay with Robin and Steve while visiting family in Key West. We had a spacious room inside their home with a comfortable queen size bed and a sitting area with closet, apartment size refrig and tv/dvd. We had use of their kitchen and our own bathroom. Also had use of the outdoor pool, outdoor shower and hot tub enclosed in a very peaceful private setting. Both Robin and Steve were very helpful recommending area restaurants and things to do.
They are located 2 blocks from a great open air tiki type restaurant and we went diving with the dive shop just across the highway. We were in close proximity to Key West but a world away from all the crowds and bustle.

About the Host, Robin And Steve
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.
