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.
The price may vary during peak season and holidays and you can check on the calendar link for availability and pricing.

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 really aprecied the welcom and advices of Steve and Robin. Charming room in charming oasis
Wir waren von der Gastfreundschaft sehr angetan. Die Lage, Haus und Nachbarschaft entsprachen den Beschreibungen. Wir können es nur empfehlen. Nochmals vielen Dank an Robin und Steve für den schönen Aufenthalt. Danke!!!!!!!!!!
We had a great time at your little paradise! Thanks for the warm welcome, the nice chats and your recommendations for key west. We wish we could stay a little longer. It was fantastic!
My boyfriend and I spent a great time at Robin's and Steve's "paradise". We had a lovely room and everything was as expected. They also gave us the opportunity to use beach towels, beach chairs and snorkeling equipment, which was very great. We also liked it that they showed us places to go and that they were interested in our plans. They are great people! If we get a chance to go to the keys again, we would defiantly come to their place again. We can highly recommend it.
Robin and Steve went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They have created a 4 page list of things to do and places to see from Key Marathon to Key West which was very helpful. The listing is as advertised and the neighborhood was clean, safe, and quiet. They have created a shangri-la of a backyard with a pool, hot tub, and outdoor shower. If it weren't for the fact that you are in the Keys, there would be no reason to leave it. Make sure you use the hot tub at night so you can see the 'stars' they have. The only mistake we made was only staying two days at the end of our vacation. When we come to the Keys again, we'll be sure to book for a longer period.
Our stay at Robins little slice of paradise was nothing short of magical. This was our first trip to the keys and definitely left us wanting to come back for more adventures. Detailed directions to every hidden gem in the keys was kindly given by Robin herself, which is exciting if you are one to go off the beaten path. Their home is sparkling clean and very warm. If you are frequent travelers or just getting started on your traveling adventures, visiting her home is inspiring in itself. She has memoirs from every adventure her and her family have experienced and magnificent custom abstract paintings that she crafted herself. We were greeted as if we were family and treated far more generously than any mainstream hotel could ever offer travelers. The backyard paradise speaks for itself, it's as if you are staying in your own private resort, but better. We can't wait to visit again, and when we do we will absolutely choose this little slice of paradise over any other option. Nothing could compare, highly recommended!

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.
