Stayed here for a week in May with a good friend......really cute, clean, apartment looking out over the cove and the boats, palm tree foliage right off the balcony. Easy to get to. We got checked out on the boat and sailed a bit but the wind piped up to 20+ so we visited key west and the parks for a day or two until it settled down. Then we sailed a ton until the end of the week. Compac 23 was a nice easy boat to sail, we had her up on her rail, we sailed her flat, reefed, etc. All went well both singlehanded and as a team.
Peggy handled the emails and reservation details smoothly, Capt Tom was around a lot and real helpful with getting settled in and anything we needed.
Boats and apartment were great, hosts were great, we had a blast. Nice location. Quiet but close to parks and other stuff as desired.
This was our best vacation ever with a beautiful, well equipped apartment room and so many interesting things to do. The sailing was perfect for us (with light winds and a very mannerly boat) as we had not sailed in many years. Kayaks, bicycles, and a gas grill were also available at no extra charge for our use. Many interesting local attractions were a short car ride away and an amazing selection of restaurants offered delicious cuisine at reasonable rates. Tom and Peggy were wonderful hosts and even allowed us to snorkel off their property. Since this was on the ocean side, we were delighted to see so many lobster, many kinds of fish, and even a nurse shark!
This is a wonderful destination and a great value!

Peggy and Tom have created an oasis that will allow you to relax, sail, fish, bike or simply hang out. Centrally located you are close to all the keys has to offer. For sailors like us it was a chance to spend time on their well maintained and fun,easy to sail Com-pac 23 sailboat. Property managers Dan and Michelle go out of their way to make you feel like guests in their home. Dan gives a thorough briefing and test sail giving you the local knowledge needed to feel safe and comfortable. A well run operation that makes you feel welcome.
The staff is friendly and very helpful. The sailboats were perfect for the waters we were in. We found all accomidations were well maintained and just what we were looking for! Location was easy to reach and allowed easy access to all the Keys.
As first time Keys vacationers, we were looking for something in the middle Keys which would allow us easy access to everything from the Everglades to Key West. And we wanted to avoid the crowds and be able to kick back in our own space. Comfortable and beautifully decorated with antiques and nautical themed accents, the Tree Top Cottage fit the bill perfectly. Property managers Danny and Michele made us feel right at home and offered great tips for dining (Stuffed Pig for breakfast - yum). And it all comes with a ComPac 23, an excellent pocket cruiser/day sailer which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Regarding the two 4s above:
If you are looking of a king size bed and jacuzzi tub with oversized shower, this isn't for you.
If your plan is to spend all your time in Key West, you might do better with accommodations in the lower Keys.
For us, this was just right.
