The place is as advertised...great for a fishing hideout with the pier and facilities, and the pool is always a comfort.

The ocean front of this house is beautiful. We loved the dock and rented a boat for a few days. The pool is great and can get as hot as a hot tub. Great kayaks, fishing poles and beach towels. The inside of the house is very outdated. Beds are very hard. We slept on the couch. No view from the master bedroom or the living room. Just the kitchen and the other two bedrooms have views. It looks like they took a front porch and made two bedrooms. We rented it for the outside area but would have really appreciated having beds that were comfortable.

This is the perfect keys house for our family. They house was open and comfortable and the pool and boat dock made it ideal. We were out on the water every day and returned back to the house to relax in the pool and cook out on the grill. We had a great visit and will return again.

"Turtle Cove was beautiful!"

by Sarah Pinder


The Florida Keys has always been my favorite place to visit but Mike Hood at Vacation In The Keys made it even better! 10/10 Would recommend planning your keys vacation with Vacation in The Keys! Turtle Cove had everything we could have asked for! It when you walk in you know you are in the Keys. It is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is stocked with plenty of cookware and dishes could not have had a more equipped kitchen! The views are amazing! Relaxing in the pool while looking out over the open water was incredible! We will definitely be back again!!!

from $400 / night
