“Laidback comfort between Key West and Marathon”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife booked this rental property for a long weekend this fall and we were very pleased with the Fandango. Cudjoe Key is pretty much a residential key and doesn't have the hustle and bustle, glamor or the seediness of Key West, Marathon and other popular party locations in the Keys. However, if you are looking for an impeccably maintained house on the water to enjoy kayaking, walking along the trails at the Key Deer Preserve or nearby Bahia Honda Park, then the Fandango might be for you. The house is large enough to accommodate about 10 people and comes with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, pool, hot tub, and a dock. Everything in the house was great with perhaps the exception of the mattresses. Some needed an update as they were a bit saggy in the middle. Beyond that everything was great in the Fandango. We spent a great deal of time kayaking in the beautiful Cudjoe Bay with the provided kayaks and enjoying the quiet life on this quiet key. The dark skies of this area make for great nighttime photography and stargazing, and the various iguana that live on the property are fun to photograph too.

Our security deposit was returned quickly after we left and the entire process was very smooth. We would gladly come back to the Fandango the next time we come down to the Keys.

“Fantastic Fandango!”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This property really is wonderful. We had a fantastic 10 days here an would come back in a heart beat! The house has breath taking ocean views especially from the master bed and living room. Those views and memories of eating alfresco with my family with the Ocean backdrop will stay with me on the cold English winter ahead. The house is very well equipped with homely touches such as well equipped kitchen and lovely bedding. Shannon is really friendly and helpful and nearby if needed. She told my husband she designed this house which she is rightly proud of. Fishing from the deck relaxing in the shady pool( this is big advantage some pools are in direct sun and like getting in a hit tub in keys heat) or just hanging around the house this location is so relaxing. If you re thinking of using 5th bedroom this is not air cionditioned and very hot we never went in there I'm not sure if this will changed in the future. Thanks for the memories fandango missing you already!!

“Right on water with a multimillion dollar view!”

Great location. As described. A multimillion dollar view from back porch. Well maintained grounds and a private master suite upstairs. There are dogs next door that might be an issue for some. Overall I'd give it a 4.5/5 if half stars were an option.

“Perfect Paradise Escape”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

We rented this home for a week in July for a quiet family getaway. This was my first time renting a home in the keys, I have done so many times in the Smokey Mountains but never in the keys.

The entire process was easy and simple, the staff at Walkabout Retreats was a delight to deal with and quick to respond to any questions, concerns or requests. The property was impeccably maintained, I was super impressed to see a maintenance guy (who was really friendly and made you feel very welcome there, a huge asset to the Walkabout organization) there 6 out of the 7 days we were there making sure the property was clean, the pool was maintained, the hot tub as well.

I cannot express how well maintained this property is, we really felt relaxed and we were very pleased with our entire experience. We did not want to leave the house or property at all. Most vacations we are always on the run, this one we relaxed around the house more than we would ever do. That says a lot about the property.

I cannot wait to book another week with these folks. They are awesome.
