We loved our stay at the Cape Cod South! The home was very cozy and clean and the beds were so comfortable! Outside is beautifully landscaped! This location was perfect for us as we traveled up and down the Keys with our kids doing different activities. Being able to keep the boat in the canal behind the house was awesome and allowed us to avoid wasting time in line at the boat ramps. Being able to bring our pup on vacation is always a plus and I was so happy to find a reasonably priced place in the Keys that would allow dogs! It was super convenient that the local dog park was only 2 streets away!
Only suggestion would be to let future guests know that they will need to get/bring additional essential items like trash bags, toilet paper, etc once initial items are used up. There was only one trash bag and one roll of toilet paper and we were staying for a week so we had to make a grocery store run for these things. No biggie though! Also, if you are staying here, there is a washer and dryer but you will need to bring your own laundry detergent. Dishwasher detergent was provided (at least when we were there).
We had a fantastic time in the Keys and we will definitely be back! I agree with other reviewers about keeping this little piece of paradise secret 😉

The house is fabulous. Very clean and comfortable. Great neighborhood with friendly people. The grill, paddleboards, and outdoor shower were appreciated. However, if you are bringing your boat be advised that there is a hump in channel where there is only 2.5 feet of water at low tide. This is well known to the locals, but it was a surprise to us. Depending on the draft of your boat you may not be able to come and go except at high tide. It's not the fault of the house or the owners/management obviously but people should know.

A friend and I stayed at Cape Cod South for a week of fly fishing mid May, and we absolutely love this house! It's meticulously decorated and very central to everything we wanted to do in the Keys.

The house itself is perfect for a guys trip or small family. The 3 bedrooms are spacious and we had plenty of room in the kitchen to cook meals each night. We also used the grill multiple times--it's off the back of the house and right on the canal so it was really cool to sit out back and grill and have a few drinks while being right on the water. The driveway itself had plenty of space to back in my Maverick skiff and leave it hooked up to the truck each night. We had no issues with anyone messing with our gear at night. The owner also has a wash bucket and hose in the storage shed, so we basically had everything we needed to take care of the boat.

There's a Publix a mile up the road, and plenty of food options nearby. For a fisherman, the location is absolutely perfect. It's a quick drive down to Key West, and it's just as easy to get up to Islamorada. We fished everywhere from Key West up to the deep backcountry of Florida Bay.

5 Star experience, and we'll definitely be back. Highly recommend!

Beautiful home and outside area. Whoever remodeled the home took their time and was an experience craftsman. Plenty of space and a comfortable area to stay in. Only reason this is 4 stars is because there was sugar ants in the kitchen. I discovered the ants when they infiltrated some groceries. It was disappointing to throw anyway some items, and having to take precaution while storing groceries.
