“Perfect retreat for those weary of big city life!”

The Tree House on Tavernier Island in the Florida Keys was the perfect place to stay offering ample space for two couples in a quiet neighbourhood, perfect for sunset walks. The biggest plus was the fact, that Winn Dixie, the local grocery store is virtually across the street as well as a slew of other things such as a hospital, CVS pharmacy and ample restaurants.

We went to Anne's Beach every day, which is about 20 miles south of Tavernier Island. Anne's Beach is quiet and offers clear water, that you can bathe in like a tropical lagoon. Around the board walk of the beach of cabanas with camping tables and built in chairs to take a breather from the heat of the midnight sun and to eat a picnic lunch on. One can walk out about half a mile in 2-3 ft deep water. Stick to the white, crushed coral pathway and you will be surprised how far you can walk. There is virtually no tide at Anne's beach, so the water is never far from your private cabana. On the last day of our stay, (July 4 weekend) the beach was obviously busier, but there are many mangroves, where one can hang a hammock and lay one's things out in privacy nestled between established old trees. If one wanders out in the clear water and were to stand still, clown fish and other tropical fish can be seen. There seemed to be no crabs or jellyfish in the bay and due to the fact, that the water is so shallow, the fear of sharks is instantly taken away.

The Tree House was clean, supplied well, with a washer and dryer and enough cooking utensils, that if wanted to self cater one's holiday, there is no need to bring a thing, this place has it all. The Tree House is nestled on a quite cup-de-sac road, which ends at the ocean, hence the name Ocean Boulevard.

The Tree House deck faces due south, offering spectacular sunsets and sun all day. It is possible to open all of the doors and not have the a/c on in the Tree House. The Tree House is conveniently located about 1.5 hours drive from central Miami, and is more residential compared to Key West, which is an over-priced "tourist trap," to say the very least. Having said that, Key West is about a two hour drive on the highway, but don't expect speed. The fastest one can go is 55 milers per hour, but the speed limit is mostly 35-45 all the way.

Other attractions within driving distance are: The Theatre of the Sea, where one can see dolphins perform. Keep an eye out for the local Geckos, which a tame and quite mesmerising. Another spot to visit is "The Big Blue Hole," which is literally that. A large hole, that was created during the construction of the Overseas Highway, which later filled with water and is now an alligator reserve, the only place where you will find them and there are no anaconda snakes in the Keys from my experience.

If you want peace and quiet, but must have a fast internet connection to keep current upon one's return from the beach, then this is the place for you! Highly recommended! Relax, cook out, chill on the huge deck and sleep like a log in this heavenly home, that has it all including a parking space off the road and room for a boat and trailer in the driveway if one has a small yacht or jet skis. Just perfect, tranquil, uncluttered and peaceful.
