Description from owner
Thank you for your interest in my Key Largo vacation home. If you love the ocean, I can guarantee you won't be disappointed spending a vacation in the Florida Keys.
The condo you'll be enjoying is located in a gated neighborhood called Moon Bay, It is more like a resort than a condominium. There are two pools, free tennis court, saunas, a private Class One boat slip rated to 30 feet.,A dock for fishing and saltwater swimming, to mention just a few of the amenities.
Moon Bay has two pools, and a sun deck for soaking up the sun. There are restaurants, right on the water within walking distance. There is a bike and jogging path just outside the gate. The bike path stretches 104 miles to Key West
The condo is only a short drive from Everglades National Park, and just over a mile is John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. Pennekamp is the home of mainland America's only living reef, It is world-famous as an outstanding spot for scuba diving and snorkeling. Saltwater fishing in the Keys attracts people from all over the world.
The unit has two bedrooms and a bath and a half. The entire unit is air-conditioned. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. There are three televisions, CD player, DVD, and a video and music library. There is a free washer and dryer in the unit. You'll also have access to a recreation room with Ping-Pong, saunas, TV, a kitchen for parties. Plenty of outdoor grills right on the waterfront.
My weekly rates for four guests start at $895.00 There is a $300.00 security deposit on first rentals. Monthly rates start at $2,495.00. Ask me about last minute discounts.
If I am booked I will suggest the nicest condo open the nights you need.
Moon Bay is such a special place -- I'm sure you'll love it. I'm happy to provide any information you need.
Best wishes for a wonderful Moon Bay vacation in the sun.

“Awesome place - can't wait to come back.”
We loved your place. It is so nicely decorated, furnished with everything we could have needed and so very clean! I loved being able to walk to the water and fish from the pier. It was hard to decide whether to go in the pool, ocean or ping pong. We can't wait to come back again. Your hospitality made it seem like home.
“Perfect Vacation Home - A real GEM!!!”
There were 3 of us traveling together so this set up was the perfect home. We spent many hours on the lovely screened porch with a beautiful view of the water and lovely sunsets. The cleanliness of the home along with the fact that everything was so organized. The kitchen was so well equipped, with everything you would need to entertain. It was great having the washer and dryer in the condo, that was also a very nice convenience. The owners were so easy to deal with and communicated everything upfront so that we knew exactly what to do upon arrival. Honestly, we can't wait to return as this has been a great vacation in a great condo!!
Owner's reply: Thank you. I appreciate your comments. I have hundreds of very nice comments addressed to me. I love them, but much prefer to see comments in the review section. You were perfect guests. Thanks for choosing Moon Bay #680.
“Nascar Race Week Homestead Florida Key Largo Stay”
Condo was older but in good condition. The building was still being repainted but was near completion when we left. Very convienient location and a competitive rate. We enjoyed our stay.
We hadf a great time fishing from the canal and staying in the gated community. Robin is great to rent from and the house has everything you need. I would recommend this place as a great rental in the lower Keys!
Our visit to Moon Bay was just great. We needed warm weather and sunshine, since the winter up north had been so nasty. Our condo was just as nice as it was described to us and the photos showed it to be. The views of the Gulf out the windows and balcony were truly breath taking 24/7. The condo offered every accommodation anyone would ever need. It was just like being at home except for the wintery weather we had left behind. We definitely would recommend Moon Bay to anyone and would like to return sometime in the future. The individual we rented the condo from was one of the sweetest individuals we have ever dealt with. She was so accommodating and truly wants to have her tenants have a great vacation. Although we are not fisherman or folks who engage in water sports we found plenty of things to do while there. We toured the Everglades a few times, when on boating tours, toured a few historic homes in Miami, visited the Zoo, drove down to Key West, visited some of the State Parks. The local eateries had excellent food especially the seafood. The fact there were not a lot of fast food places was so refreshing. Shopping in the are is limited although we were able to spend an entire day checking out the local businesses and discovered some interesting souvenirs for ourselves and family to take back home. Close to the end of our stay we went to the Pennekamp State Park which is well worth visiting its beautiful. What many may not take advantage of is the movie they show there about the Coral Reef and aquatic life. It is truly an amazing educational experience that everyone who comes to the area needs to see. It is quite long but well worth the time spent watching it.
Owner's reply: Thank you Susan, It appears you love Moon Bay as much as we do. We hope you will come back soon. Captain Don
“Trip to Paradise.”
We loved staying in the condo, we are really tired of hotels and this had the feel of home away from home. The condo had a wonderful view of the Florida Bay and the sunsets. It was so comfortable and had everything we needed. The Keys of course are fantastic and we loved the dolphins, John Pennekamp Park, Treasure of the Sea and of course fabulous restaurants. We will definitely plan to go back.
Owner's reply: Thank you. Captain Don
This is a very nice property on the strip of Key Largo. The condo was very clean and roomy. The complex has a very nice pool and is on the side of the Keys facing the Everglades. My only disappointment was that there wasn't a beach and no sidewalks. The people were very friendly at the condo complex and would recommend it if you don't mind not having a beach or a place to walk.
Owner's reply: Absolutely correct about the beach. There are no World Class Beaches in the Keys. I take my grandkids to Miami Beach when they need a World Class Beach fix. I do not understand the sidewalk comment..Directly across the street is a bike, jogging path, that goes over 100 miles to Key West. I have ridden my bike on it 100 miles. It is paved all the way.
“Great place with the feel of home”
Started our search of a place to stay in the Keys and after much searching, this place more than met our needs. Jeannie kept in close contact thru the process and made the payment transfer simple and assuring. The unit was modestly described and so many more little extras upon arrival. We have confidence of VHR and this owner, Thanks Jeannie! Will return.......
Owner's reply: Thanks. You were great guests. Hope to see you back at Moon Bay soon.
“Best you'll find”
Everything was fantastic and exactly as Capt. Don stated in the advertisement. This place is so convenient to diving and other activities. There's a lot to do there including just relaxing. The place was immaculate and had a lot of amenities for the activities (not normally found in a rental unit). I can't say enough good things about my experience in renting from Capt. Don. The diving was perfect.
Our family just got home from a vacation in this condo. It was amazing. It was everything that was advertised and more. It looks just like the photos, and has everything you could need. We spent the week snorkling, and swimming and having a blast with our two 18 year old kids. I would recomend this property to anyone. The view of the water is fantastic and rooms were comfortable.
Owner Supplied Testimonials
We had a fantastic time Don.
The condo was beautiful and the only thing Camille and I need is clean...and your home was spotless.
We will be staying with you again .
Darren and Camille
Dear Captain Don,
We had a fabulous vacation! Moon Bay was the perfect place for our vacation. Your communication was the best! Hope we can visit again.
If we decide to vacation in Key Largo in the future...we will be certain to contact you. I can't tell you just how much we enjoyed our stay.....my motto is to vacation in a place as nice or nicer than our home...your condo certainly fit the criteria. You are my kind of owner...very attentive and prompt with information and communication, again thank you! Michele
The place was lovely….everything was as you said – clean, worked, organized, and beautiful….I was extremely pleased.
The entire complex was immaculately kept and very nice.
I particularly enjoyed the bar-b-que area….such lovely views of the beautiful sunsets while I charred a steak to perfection.
Everything in the unit was above expectation, and I especially appreciate all of the tips you provided about the surrounding area.
I took off one day (from all that scuba-diving…which was just fantastic) to have a leisurely drive to Key West where I spent a night enjoying a few of the local attractions down there (e.g. Ft. Jefferson and Duval Street).
I left the place as I found it (clean and tidy): additionally I placed the key at the designated place, and mailed the gate pass from the lobby area near the elevator. Additionally, I washed and folded the bed linens and started a load of towels. Unfortunately, I accidently broke one of the small cocktail glasses while washing up one night; sorry – if I had more time I would have attempted to find a replacement, but ran out of time; please deduct a commensurate amount from my deposit.
Overall, you provided for every consideration in making my stay hassle free and I really appreciate it.
I hope to return in the on-coming years, but will attempt a cooler month – being from the Seattle area with the cooler weather, makes those Florida summer days seem a little harsh (temperature wise).
Thanks once again,
Just wanted to let you know that we are very impressed with your condo. We got in late last night and were first impressed condo interior but when we woke up this morning to the wonderful views of the gulf, we knew that was the best quality of this condo! You have been a pleasure to work with and I have a feeling we will be returning to your place in the future.
Just a quick note to let you know we made it back to Iowa yesterday and you should be getting the gate key in the mail shortly as we mailed it from the Moon Bay mail per your instructions.
Thanks so much for the use of your place, we really enjoyed it!
