More pros than cons
Overall the property is rather nice, great location. Enjoyed the access to the water, dock, and kayaks. Per the advertisement I knew we'd be sharing the property with guests in a few other houses; however, I wasn't aware that we'd also be sharing it with several other guests that had their boats docked along the property's boat slips. Made for some crowded days around the small beach area. Not bad, just not as peaceful as we had hoped for. House is dated more than the pictures show. AC had to run constantly and couldn't keep up. Mid to upper 80's outside, but the internal temp on the thermostat showed the house at 83 to 84 most of the day. It cooled off at night, which was fine as we spent most of the daytime away from the house; however, if you're planning on spending time inside during the day just plan accordingly. Could be an issue if you have indoor pets or small children. Check in process went well. Just follow their guidelines and contact them upfront. They'll be there to meet you and get you situated right away. Wasn't real sure how checkout worked, but a small checklist we found in the house said to leave by 10:00 a.m. so that's what we did. Didn't see anyone to checkout with, so we just packed up the vehicle, took out the trash, organized the towels, put the clean dishes away (dishwasher didn't work), and hit the road. Not my greatest experience for the price, but not the worse either.
Thank you for your feedback. I wish you had told our property manager about the AC. We would've immediately checked it and had it serviced. We also have some stand alone air units, which we could've brought in. We will definitely have the AC looked at right away.
FUN GIRLS TRIP!!
Loved the view from our place and the fantastic beach area with kayak and paddle boards!! Bathrooms at beach were very clean... our place was very clean, kitchen well stocked, great quality towels! Was no extra toilet paper and needed blow dryer!! Great location in Key Largo close to great restaurants!
Very well kept. Nice grounds. A bit aged. Could use new mattresses
Had a great time
Great location, beautiful sunsets
We enjoyed our stay. The property is private and although it is a bit tight between housing, we felt that we had plenty of privacy. The place was extremely clean. The kitchen worked for our needs (breakfast and snacks) and the A/C was COLD. My only somewhat non-100% comment is that the mattresses are very soft and they are noisy - if you are a light sleeper, you will hear each turn over. I would also update the description to note that the step down into the shower is fine but that step out is a doozy.
The beach area was very nice and the pier for fishing was enjoyed by the guys as they caught grunt fish and several other fish using shrimp for bait. The tiki hut was a great way to watch the sunsets. We also enjoyed the deck on the front of the Deck House for breakfast and late night cocktails.
Perfect for our annual girls' trip! Great location!
The Deck House was the perfect size and location for my annual Girlfriends Trip - we're 3 30-something's, and we loved the private tucked away Dream Bay Resort. We did a mix of eating in and eating out - so many great options for both - the grill and outdoor dining set was really nice! We didn't get to light the tiki torches which was the only disappointment. Sabrina was super nice and gave us a quicker route to get into town. She was very available and allowed us to check out later on our departure day since we had later flights. The people around Key Largo and the Dream Bay Resort were very friendly - we absolutely loved it. If you go to Snook's - ask for Chris! He was awesome!
We're so happy you had a great girl's getaway at Dream Bay! Come back to see us again!
Wonderful relaxing and easy!
The deckhouse was clean, very comfortable and all we could ask for. We all loved staying there including our dogs!
