Date of stay
This was our second stay at Shadow Point, which says it all right there. It is a beautiful property. Rustic chic. Two single story cottages, on a beautiful piece of land, exquisitely landscaped. We celebrated Christmas there with All of our kids and grandkids. Home is very comfortable. Kitchens very well stocked with everything we needed. Plenty of cookware, dishes etc. comfortable rooms, kid friendly. A shed on property filled with kayaks, paddle boards, life vests in every size. Plenty of lounge chairs on beach for everyone. I could go on and on, but I will just say that we will definitely be back:). Love it!
Piece of Paradise
Date of Stay
Shared a unique experience meeting group of old friends for taste of old Florida Keys. Great ambiance with large, well-stocked kitchen and charming dining room, several living rooms and spacious porches. I stayed in the smaller cottage and loved the authentic decor, comfy bed with crisp linens and fluffy towels. The view from every room made me feel as if I had truly stepped back in time and was far away. In truth it was just minutes from US 1 and all the local markets and restaurants. Weather did not permit me to experience the kayaks and paddleboards this time. Definitely will return for another visit.

This property is one of a kind. Nearly every window in the house and the cottage has a view of the water. It is very secluded and private with plenty of room for a big group. We had two boats docked up and it was so easy just to launch the boats into the water right from the house instead of having to go to a nearby boat ramp and pay to use the ramp. We also liked how easy it was to get out to the ocean to catch lobster and fish. We ended up with 29 lobster, a grouper, a hogfish, and a mutton snapper. We absolutely feasted like royalty and the kitchen made it easy to do that. It was fully stocked with spices and every cooking utensil/pot/pan etc that you could ever need. We loved ringing the bell outside when a meal was ready, we called it the dinner bell! There is no shortage of entertainment here from the paddle boards and kayaks to the old school poker table that we used almost every night. Between the group we had three small dogs and they enjoyed it as much as the people. Shadow Point is a special place and we had a blast! I highly recommend it.

Unbelievable Corporate Retreat!

11 Directors of a large Medical Device company spent a week on this amazing property. We rented a massive 34 foot boat and docked it at the house the entire week. The property owners and the care taker were VERY easy to work with and the communication was spectacular. They are very used to hosting people and have every single thing you could think of there for you. This is classic old world Key Largo charm. We had meetings on the wonderful grounds outside and also in the living room with the cool breezes blowing through the windows. All rooms have wall AC that provide unbelievable A/C when/if needed. The towels and sheets were in A++, and the kayaks, paddle boards were excellent. The best part is how secluded you feel surrounded on 3 sides by water, but anytime we needed supplies or wanted to go out to eat, everything was within a 2 minute drive or a short walk. For those boat/water lovers, this is a perfect location. It is literally right next to the cut that goes to the Gulf side, so if it gets windy, just head of there for the day. However, the best was the access to the Ocean and all the best dive and snorkling sites that are very very close to the house. We had people who had vacationed their entire adult life on Key Largo and they all said this house was the best location they have ever stayed in for location on the water. We had female and male attendees and this property was set up perfectly with 2 homes on the property. In the cottage we had 4 females and they had their own bathroom and kitchen and living area (pull out bed could have slept more if needed). The males stayed in the house and there was plenty of rooms and bathrooms as well. I can't rave enough about this property!!! Absolutely book with zero concerns!
Amazing!!! Pre-summer vacation!!!

The pictures of this house were beautiful online and we could tell that this would be a nice place to vacation. When we arrived and toured the house and the grounds a feeling of serenity came over us and we felt completely one with nature. The grounds were well kept and beautifully landscaped. We had a 27 foot boat that fit perfectly on the dock. The property even has a mini beach for the kids to play. The house has a large kitchen and was well equipped with any and all cooking supplies. We even used their waffle maker for breakfast a few times. The beds were comfortable and there was a constant breeze flowing threw the house with the windows open and a/C off. We used the a/c at night to sleep. The house has so much character and a nostalgic keys look and feel . We are so lucky to have come across this treasured property and can't wait until we return!
Great for larger Family get togethers

16 person family vacation, the kids 9-15 loved the beach and the docks for swimming, the kayaks were used by all. the large dining room was great for all to sit, eat and talk. Kitchen was large enough for several people to work at the same time. The historic ambiance was enjoyed by all. Close to shopping and plenty of shade trees, gorgeous location.

This was not our first trip to the Keys but it was our first time at Shadow Point. We cannot say enough about this property. By far, one of the best vacations ever! There were 12 of us total (all adults but this is a great place for kids too) and it turned out to be the perfect place to celebrate my husband's 40th (which we kept a surprise)! We snorkeled, fished and just relaxed on the beach the entire time. Shopping and great restaurants are very close and convenient but the 2 full kitchens made it very easy to cook most of the time. The large dining room table accomodated all of us and made dinners much more fun. Marlee was very easy to work with and there wasn't anything the place did not have for us. We look forward to many more vacations at Shadow Point in the future.
