“Quiet retreat - Comfy as can be!”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband and I enjoyed Casa Cayo for a week in June. From the minute we arrived, until the minute we left - we enjoyed this convenient canal-front property! The inside of the home is clean and tastefully decorated, cottage-style. The master bed was so comfortable and we slept well. Our goal was to relax and we did just that! My husband fished off our dock...he caught a few nurse sharks, catfish, grunts ~ threw them all back but had fun! We cooked great meals and slept in the air-conditioned comfort...read a lot and walked the neighborhood. One afternoon we made the drive south to Key West, stopped along the way at our favorite places and made it home by 10pm. I wouldn't think this is a place for young children (because of the canal) but for a couple like us, it was perfect! We may come back with more adult family...as I don't think you can find a more quiet, comfortable rental for the reasonable price. Thank you for sharing your home, Gladys!

We loved this cottage and the fact that it was on the channel with a family of manatees and various other sea life made it that much more amazing. The outside kitchen became our primary hangout as we could be there rain or shine, sunny or cloudy and just enjoy the day and the wildlife surrounding us. It's a quiet neighborhood, but very friendly. Everything about the cottage was amazing and we hope to visit again. Gladys was amazing and very helpful. She responded to my emails promptly and obviously takes pride in this beautiful home away.

We had a wonderful stay at Bayside Cottage. It really was paradise!!
Spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished...so comfortable.
We used the outdoor cooking a lot and would liked to have eaten outdoors too but its not set up for that unfortunately.
It was a quite, beautiful retreat...hard to leave.

Thanks for a wonderful stay.

If you’re seriously considering a vacation in the Florida Keys, don't waste another second planning on where to stay. This is it!
Like for most of us, time is precious… and I’ve never taken the time to write a review; however, this time it was a MUST.
Everything about this home is 100% top notch. From the location to the amenities and the unparalleled attention to detail, it’s no wonder why EVERY review is raving.
The only thing I wouldn’t give a 100% rating to is the owner “ Gladys”. She’s actually 110%.
Every request was met with a willingness to please, the kind of treatment and responsiveness typically reserved for the most elite of five star resorts.
I mentioned once that we would be celebrating our daughter’s birthday during our stay.
When we arrived Gladys, had a gift wafting for her.
Gestures like that can only come from a person who takes pride and joy in what they do.
This was evident, in every detail throughout the home.
I truly can’t say enough about this place, great restaurants, 15 min boat ride to Nest Key, 25 min boat ride to Tiki bar, fishing, kayaking, grilling, island breeze, beautiful sunsets……. And the list goes on.
Book it! I promise you….. You won’t regret it.
I'm so sure , here is my number 305-496-4562

100 characters is not enough for me to express what a phenomenal experience Casa Cayo was. Both inside the home and out there is not one thing I could say was missing. We had every luxury you could expect from a vacation home rental, so much that we have just booked another two weeks there in September. Gladys, your property is a gem. Kudos to you and Trip Advisor.

My husband and I stayed 8 days at this vacation home. It is clearly evident that the owners take pride in their home. Everything was so clean. Very tastefully decorated. All linens and towels were excellent quality. I hate to say anything negative because there was nothing to complain about. If I could mention one thing that would have been nice to have, it would be that there were no washcloths for use. But, there was no shortage of towels or handtowels or bath mats. The house was so roomy but, to be honest, we used the outdoor space more than anything. Loved the grill and sink but, mostly the outdoor wine refrigerator and ice maker. Two kayaks are provided; as well anything you would need for water outings. We could have used a small personal cooler for picnics; but again, I wouldn't complain or blame the owner for not having. Our deposit was promptly refunded as promised in the original agreement. We were impressed with the amount and quality of all kitchen small appliances, pots/pans and misc utensils. We've stayed at numerous vacation rental homes and I would rate this one as one of the top 3. The house is in a nice residential area. It was very quiet around us with very little traffic. The neighbors seemed nice but left us alone. Saw plenty of manatee while relaxing outside. Just a "heads up" I wouldn't really count on the small beach that is advertised as a place to swim or layout. While we were there, it seemed to be used by the local residents as a dog area. It has one small bench; but other than that, it's not meant to be a true beach. There were a lot of jellyfish while we were there.

“It's the Keys, Stay Awhile.....”
Reviewed March 28, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We spent 4 days with a family of 5 in this beautiful cottage on a canal. Bring your boat and enjoy the sunrise and sunset while on the water. Lots of fish to watch in the canal. Nice size boat slip. Home is cozy and welcoming and a great place to just relax especially outside with the outdoor kitchen.
Owners are very pleasant and will answer any and all questions you may have.
You will never be disappointed.
