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 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.
Robin and Steve were gracious, thoughtful and considerate hosts - the private room was perfect, bed was very comfortable, massage chairs were quite a treat. The backyard oasis was private and beautiful - luxurious hot tub and heated pool with waterfall. Everything was clean and well kept, colorful and touched with the talented artistic hand of Robin Lynne. Quiet neighborhood with similar single family homes, great options for our early morning runs (no need to run on the busy Route 1), and fabulous Cuban coffee place 2 blocks away if you don't want to make it yourself in the kitchen. Will definitely go again!
Host had everthing clean and ready, including great massage chair. The location was very nice.
Joanne and I much enjoyed our stay in the home of Robin and Steve. The room was large and comfortable and the grounds are beautiful. I swam alot in the pool. We liked the location as only minutes from the Bajia Honda park and beach and a short drive to Key West for nights on the town. A great value and a great location. Robert
Robin and Steve provided not just a comfortable home, but amazing help for our visit - from start to finish. Just after we booked, and while we were still planning our trip, they sent great materials orienting us to the entire Keys (not just the Lower Keys where they are located). They met us warmly, were attuned to our interests and as a result we had an amazing visit. It was a really comfortable home - as advertised (we stayed in their home). Robin and Steve's place is in a great location, close to Key West and all that it offers and adjacent to the Big Pine Key and its wonderful tiny deer and Bahia Honda beach. Also in short walking distance to great authentic cafe con leche in the morning and dinner out in the evening. We came from the farthest North of our wonderful country to the farthest South, but Robin and Steve made us feel like we live right down the street. Their place is charming and so are Robin and Steve.
Very, very, very nice and friendly hosts!
Since we were on the keys for only 2 nights we didnt have much time to enjoy the beautiful garden.
We could come and leave as we wanted.
We definitely recommend Robin and Steve as hosts to others!
Hosts were very warm and friendly. The detailed list they provided of attractions and restaurants in the Keys was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, but the faucet in the bathtub needed to be repaired. Having the little refrigerator in the room was a nice touch.
Thanks for sharing your peaceful paradise with us! We would gladly stay there again next time visiting the beatiful keys of Florida, and hopefully a bit longer than just 3 days! :-)

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.
