You are welcome to enjoy our entire property. Please keep our property clean and lovely. Also fishing is not available on our estate. We reside in the Florida Keys Sanctuary. Also no smoking. On a special note: We offer our guests more of an intimate boutique resort. Our beautiful homes are located on (2) pristine acres directly on the Gulf of Mexico. We offer a huge back yard, 3 kayaks, snorkel gear & more. Please let me stress!...we're not a condo, were not a mobile home on a canal & we're not time shares that are built side by side. We actually own 25' of the bay bottom. So I hope I've conveyed how lovely and special our 2 acre private and GATED estate really is. Please email me if you ever desire more information. We love our home so much that we've built a safe living aquarium in our lagoon area. It's taken since 1970's we feed our fish and NO there are NO sharks or harmful sea-life. Just beautiful sites under the water. At the beach area is a zero entry and by the time you're in the lagoon area it's about 3.5 -4 feet. You have to swim out fairly far to get to 10 feet. We encourage everyone SAFETY first when you move past our estate perimeter and grounds. Always life jackets on when in Kayaks. Safety ;). So this is why we say the following. We're part of the Marine Sanctuary to save our lovely sea-life. Many guests come to visit and want to fish of the docks however we kindly ask you to join us in understanding we don't permit fishing because we want to have amazing sea-life for the next generations. And too... our county has created many new public fishing areas for visitors to the keys to fish. I also offer a wonderful list of guides for both deep sea and back country. Thank you for protecting our sea-life for future generations.

It is not compatible with our environment. Nor is it permissible.
We provide 1 towel per guest. At certain times I can offer additional towels for families lodging more than 1 week. The Florida Keys are a very very fragile necessity to south Florida. The more washing and phosphates we pour into our oceans the faster it dies. Therefore I can't express enough to you these sincere points.
1. 1 towel is provided for each guest.
2. If u require additional towels or beach towels I would ask that you pack them.
3. When lodging more than 1 week towels will be provided after the 3rd day upon request.
4. We sincerely thank you for being so considerate of our very fragile oceans and sea life and we ask all guests to conserve both "water". We are still also on septic tanks which means that long showers are not permissible.
5. Traveling with children. You will most likely need more towels so I encourage you to bring yours from home. We provide 1 for each person in your party.
5. Finally please remember you're our guests in our homes. We provide what we normally would for our own family and friends. A hotel or motel we aren't. So we go by the courtesy policy of thinking of everyone whose lodging with us and having just what we need for you. Thank you for understanding and enjoying our beautiful Florida Keys and not leaving a carbon footprint...behind that's not too large ; )
6. All waterfront tables, chairs, water flotations, kayak jackets, kayaks and chaise lounges. Need to be returned at the end of the day use to the proper storage area. Either behind the fence area or just adjacent to the tree area. Please check with The Bennett Family as to where to return items you're utilizing by the waterfront. These are our homes and we try to keep everything tidy for other guests just arriving. They would like to see a beautiful prestine waterfront. Thank you kindly in advance.
7. Washing and drying clothing: If your party is staying longer than 6 days we are happy to accommodate you with 1 load of clothing. If guests are staying under 6 days we are happy to guide you to the nearest laundry mat. Monroe County is now charging owners for every drop on and off property. So water and a/c is very precious to those of us that reside in Paradise ; )
**Very Important** Please remember we are on septic tanks in the Florida Keys and the toilet paper MUST be 1 ply. Preferbly Scotts brand or Charmin. Please check 1 ply. Thank you.
We thank you for to staying with our family we are very happy to host you. Air B and B has been a wonderful avenue to meet the WORLD : ) we dearly adore hosting guests and sharing our family estate as well as secret treasures of locals around the Florida Keys. With that said we are not a registered bed and breakfast. What we are is exactly what Air BnB States; room's of all different types and budgets . We are also not a Resort. So we kindly ask to respect the families wishes by returning all waterfront equipment lounges, chairs, flotation devices, tables and umbrellas at the end of the end of your day use, to where the family stores items. That way our beautiful beach waterfront is lovely and prestine for all of our wonderful guests. Thank you in advance for putting items away. Your wet items are to go in the proper place as in clotheslines. And placing your garbage in the receptacles provided for you. We worked diligently to recycle. And we encourage our guests to do the same. You will notice the blue recycle Bins and Blue large garbage cans… those are our recycle Bins.
