Amazing! Our adult family of 6 loved our stay here in Grassy Key. The view was beautiful and the amenities were perfect! The pool was a wonderful relaxing retreat at the end of a day on the boat. We appreciated having a nice dock with hoses and lights to pull up to every evening. The kids loved mornings on the kayaks. We will be back again and again. Thank you David Thomas for a wonderfully maintained property. This is the perfect private get away for two or more. I will recommend this property to everyone.

We can't begin to explain the vacation we had at this home. It was fantastic! David was a pleasure to meet, and his home is a beautiful getaway. We enjoyed the home, dock, the wildlife, and the many amenities he offered with the home. The eldest iguana on the property won my heart and I enjoyed leaving fruit out for his breakfast daily. While fishing we saw a nurse shark, stingray, many fish, and horseshoe crabs. The sand crabs are abundant, but not bothersome and fun to watch. We loved sitting on the porch each evening in the breeze and swimming in the pool, or sitting in the hot tub. Honestly, we hardly left the property! One week was hardly enough and we hope to return next year to enjoy this beautiful home and property. Thank you David for sharing such a wonderful place! You and Rosie made our stay so enjoyable!

Owner's reply:

thanks again for staying at the Peninsularhouse. Will let Rosie know.

We had an absolutely wonderful week at the Peninsular House in December 2015. This was a second visit -- the first being in January 2011 -- and we vowed that we won't wait another five years to go again. Hope to return next year! The house is very comfortable and well-equipped and the surroundings are perfect. We rented a boat, which added even more fun to the adventure. I highly recommend the Peninsular House to anyone looking for a laid-back, fun vacation.

This house is very well situated to give privacy to renters. It was an easy drive from the house to both key largo and key west. It was actually better in person than in pictures. The exterior of the house with the pool and patio tables/chairs and decks are laid out wonderfully. The outside shower, downstairs bathroom and outside stereo were a nice touch. The pool and outside areas was my favorite part of the house. The master bed was comfortable. The place was very clean. It rained on us for a couple days so the cards, movies, board games and books on hand were nice to have around. Truly loved our stay at this house. Just a few things that I hate to even mention because the place is definitely a gem and worth a stay. The biggest problem is there is an issue with keys and/or locks. The oven takes at least 30 minute to preheat and I really don't think it ever heated to 450 degrees and when I used broiler out of attempt to speed things up it didn't work much better. The main bath, not the master bath, toilet was very slow to flush with very little flushing power. The main bath shower I could never get to spray straight at me! Maybe operator error there! As there was only two of us we just used master bath after first day and no worries! The place could easily accommodate several couples and a few kids without feeling crowded. And with a front deck, back deck and downstairs outside seating scattered about everyone can find a spot to get away without even leaving the property and soak in the beauty of the area. I think anyone would enjoy this place! We loved it and would not hesitate to return.

David Thomas

Owner's reply:

Amanda, it was great seeing you start your married life so happy in the Peninsularhouse. Please come back many times in the years ahead. Am going to have a locksmith check keys & locks to the 3 entrance doors, plus putting a new oven and toilet in the 2nd bathroom (inc a new shower head).

This property is truly a secluded paradise. Although the weather in November can be rainy and windy, it did not stop us from enjoying this amazing location. We caught snapper everyday from the dock and thoroughly enjoyed the heated hot tub and pool. We were amazed at how peaceful and secluded the home was and even enjoyed sharing the patio with the many iguanas that would come right up next to us to bask in the sun. We did not get a chance to use the kayaks because of the wind, but know this would have been a perfect place because of the variety of the bay, the lagoon or the ocean to kayak in. We would definitely return to the peninsular house and highly recommend it for families or for a romantic getaway.

David Thomas

Owner's reply:

We are pleased to know the Hepler family had a good time and enjoyed the Peninsularhouse location.

What can you say? The house is incredible and clean. Decks, hammocks, kayaks, fishing equipment, dock, swimming pool, hot tub. On and on. David Thomas was great to work with. Anytime I called he would return my call immediately. My wife and I go to Florida the first week of November yearly. We will definitely return to the Peninsularhouse.

We stayed for a week at the Peninsular house and were extremely happy with everything! The house was exactly as advertised; it was clean and had everything we needed including kayaks, extra bedding, beach towels, kitcheware, and lots of ice. The house was close to everything we wanted to do including snorkeling and fishing trips. My son caught so many fish off the lighted dock including snapper, barraculda and a huge tarpon (about 35 lbs?). It was a wonderful setting for a family vacation - the pool was an added bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed. Only complaint - we had to leave and go back to IL!

nice family, it was a pleasure to have the Dementral family to stay

Guestbook

After staying for 2 weeks in April 2006, Scott, Sheridy, Dustin & Chance wrote: Dear Dave, We wanted to tell you what a wonderful vacation we had at the peninsular house. It is some of the best money we have ever spent. The private and peaceful surroundings, clean-fresh air and awesome sunrises and sunsets were just what we needed. We had all the comforts of home and found the house to be very comfortable and relaxing. The tarpon fishing from the dock was great even though they evaded our lines and we didn't catch any it was fun trying. We found the marine life in the area to be awesome and highly recommend snorkeling around Sister Rock Island. We found all the local merchants to be most friendly and accommodating and enjoyed some great food and shopping. We will certainly recommend the Peninsular House to our friends and would highly recommend it to anybody that is looking for a relaxing vacation. We look forward to returning next year
