Casa aqua review
We can’t wait to return
Debra was great
An incredible and special place!
We recently rented both the main and cottage properties at Casa Aqua and have nothing but wonderful things to say about the experience. We had a large group of adults who explored the Keys, including golf and some day drinking in Key West, and we're all convinced the best place to be while visiting the area was our own home! The pool and hot tub were incredible, the views were amazing and the guys caught fish right off the dock for supper one night. The house has everything you need, and if you don't have a good time here you're simply not trying. Some places you stay on vacation get the job done, but Casa Aqua is truly a spectacular home away from home that is somehow even greater than the sum of its considerable parts. We will most definitely be back. Debra and her staff took care of everything. Stop looking because if this fits your budget, you're done looking. Book it!
Family friendly first class accommodations.
Absolutely loved my stay here for my 30th birthday celebration. So much room for everyone to sleep comfortably. Will definitely be back!
Thank you for your positive review.
We would love to have you back at Casa Aqua as our guest. We appreciate that the home was left in great condition and the the home was treated respectfully.
We hope that you had a wonderful birthday with that wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean.
We strive to make every guest enjoy their stay and your input is valuable to us.
We hope to see you and your friends return. Perhaps, as a wedding location?
A stunningly gorgeous vacation "mansion"! Pictures don't do this place justice! :-)
We rented this home to bring our staff down for the Florida Powerboat Races & Poker Run and it didn't disappoint! Casa Aqua is an absolutely beautiful home! Debbie and her team were marvelous! Fresh flowers and a personal tour was there for us upon arrival. The property is spacious, well appointed & SUPER comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and situated where you can communicate with all guests while cooking. There is a commercial ice maker and extra fridge! There is a bar for serving cocktails and a beer cooler too. The dining room can seat 14 people easily. All of the beds are wonderfully comfortable, including in the cottage/guest house (sm. extra charge). There were plenty of towels, extra linens, and the master bedroom has a giant marble bathroom with a rain/steam shower and Jacuzzi tub. There are two additional bedrooms that are very private and share a bathroom (one has its own terrace), as well as a loft room with two twin beds and a 1/2 bath upstairs (also private). There is an elevator to the "tower bedroom" with a king bed (it also has a full bath and its own terrace) The elevator is a HUGE plus as it allows guests to not only bring luggage into the house, but also to bring groceries, etc. There is a 180 degree view across entire Cudjoe Bay and both sunrise and sunsets are magnificent. The house has a small beach for kayak or swim entry, a fire pit, dock and kayaks. Note: no boat with more than 2 ft draft should try to use the dock (tide variance) Under the dock has a sandy bottom and you can swim and fish off of it too (we had poles & caught several fish)! Use Cudjoe Gardens Marina for boats (our 42 ft Mystic had no issues--ask for Dock Master Ken). The town of Key West is about a 20 min drive but beautiful, and there is Uber & Lyft service to and from the home from pretty much anywhere including Key West Airport. Winn Dixie, liquor store and restaurants all close by on Summerland Key. Fresh seafood shops abound. Even though it seems out of the way on a map, it TRULY isn't. The price is astounding for the amount of room/comfort, especially for a large group! The pool was heated perfectly and the hot tub was a dream! Large patio space will accommodate many people and there's a nice gas grill as well! Clean & comfy. It would be great for weddings too! We will definitely stay here again without reservation! The owners didn't miss a detail! Secluded and Fabulous--we highly recommend Casa Aqua to everyone. It's SPECIAL!
We stayed with 4 adults and 5 children (ages 13, 9, 7, 3, and 1). And we had family (2 more adults and 3 children) in town staying at another property. They frequently came to visit us because of the enormous pool and the beautiful outdoor space around our pool and hot tub. With the huge house and pool area/patio, we had plenty of room for everyone to hang out and have dinner, without being crowded. The landscaping around the house is very pretty, with a variety of well kept plants and large palm trees.
The house has a long pier and dock that extends pretty far out into Cudjoe Bay and provides some amazing views. Also, there are tons of fish that hang out right off the dock: mangrove snapper, rainbow parrotfish, blue striped grunt, small barracuda, small nurse sharks (no worries, they're docile). We used a chum net and had a ball letting the kids catch the mangrove snapper on frozen bait shrimp. The kayaks (although a little worn), were fun to take out into the bay. The paddling was super easy, and even young kids can do it because the water in the bay is only 2.5 - 3.5 feet deep. Snorkeling was also a lot of fun in the crystal clear water, as well as diving for lobster (during their two-day mini-season).
The house has a large and very functional kitchen. We cooked dinner at our place 5 out of 7 nights. However, there is apparently a very good restaurant about 2 minutes down Highway 1, called the Square Grouper. Some of our family members ate there and said it was amazing.
All in all, we had a blast, but wish we'd booked it for longer. We're ready to go back.
Thank you for your rental home review.
We would love to have you return as our guest at Casa Aqua as the house was left in very good condition. We really appreciate guests that are respectful and take care of our home.
It is now on our list to replace 3 of the older kayaks at the home. Kayaking is a favorite activity here in the Florida Keys and Cutthroat Harbor is great for kayaking since it is relatively shallow at 3-4'.
We appreciate your positive review and strive to maintain the property and get it back into shape since Hurricane Irma did quite a bit of landscaping damage. We have worked hard to get it back into shape and now it is better than ever!
