Hello from Pennsylvania & Seattle.  We had several sunny days for swimming, boating & playing in the sand!  The top most room was my Shangri-la room with my private balcony!  An amazing house in paradise.

We spent 2 weeks here.  All wonderful.  We took a 1/2 day tour with Capt Victoria - exceptional.  We got to see Keys' nature.  She is fun and knowledgeable  We love Hogfish Grill on Stock Island.  Mangrove Mama's has everything and Pizza.  Sugarloaf Bakery - Oh My!  We live in rural New Mexico - come every year.  Shannon is the Best

We had an absolutely amazing week at the Fandango!  We celebrated 10 years of marriage with 7 of our closes and dearest friends.  The best way to start a New Year.

Thank you for providing a beautiful welcoming home that we could fill with much love and laughter.

We visited Fandango with 4 couples.  The guys rode down on motorcycles & the girls flew into Miami.  Wonderful week spent riding, eating, drinking & Kayaking!  The Keys are beautiful at this time of the year & the house was perfect.

The view was amazing!! Quite the little get-a-way.  God bless you and your home.  Thank you for sharing.  We look forward to a future visit.  It will be difficult to go back to reality, we love it here!

We all (9 of us) had a wonderful time.  Your house was one of the best equipped rental units ever.  You supplied everything!  Quality was everywhere - the house itself and the furnishings.  The kayaks were great and the children also spent much time in the pool and the hot tub.

Cudjoe is a great location because it is not too far away from many attractions, north & south, yet we had our own little resort.

Thanks, Shannon, for providing a fantastic vacation setting.

Hope to return.

This is our third year here.  Always Terrific!  Shannon & Amy are great to deal with!

Kayaking is terrific


   The  Fandango house was amazing!  We had such a wonderful time this past week!  The house was beautiful and comfortable.  It felt like a home away from home.  I can certainly say we do not want to leave.  We are hoping to make this a yearly thing, and this place is perfect!  We will definitely be back, and want to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!!

Thank you,

What a beautiful home, we truly enjoyed the area!  Did lots of kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, exploring, fishing, eating out at local restaurants and the best part was para-sailing with my 75 year old Mother.  What a great way to spend our “Thanksgiving” Holiday!

Thank you!

Had a fantastic time!  Dry Tortugas was a hit as well as Key West!  Enjoyed the house and all it offered.  Want to do this trip again.

Dear Shannon,

Tropical Paradise is absolutely the perfect name for this amazing home.  It was such a beautiful place to be as we started our lives together as Mr. & Mrs. and our ability to bring our dogs along made it even better.  The drive from NJ was long but totally worth it.  When Tropical Paradise is the final destination.  Some favorites ... boating and catching tons of fish (even some from the dock) Taking dips in the pool, swimming with the dolphins @ Dolphin Research Center in Marathon (then seeing real wild dolphins and sea turtles out near the lighthouse).  The Square Grouper, and meeting Patty @Mangrove Mama's!  We haven't even packed up to leave, but are already looking forward to our net visit (and fantasizing about a way to quit our jobs and move to the Keys as so many do)  Such a magical place that will forever be a part of our memories!

We had an amazing vacation at Fandango.  What a great way to start off our summer.  We took advantage of every aspect of the property.  The kayaks were awesome.  We couldn’t have asked for a better location to stay.  Our families had a blast!  We will surely be back!  Thank you, your property is beautiful

Had a fantastic week at Fandango.  Really enjoyed going down the canal.  Paddleboards were amazing, especially on calm days - saw sting ray, jelly fish, 2 ft shark, and turtle.  Recommend Square Grouper Restaurant, and Lost Reef Dive Co. in Key West!  Kids had a blast!  Thanks.

We had a mini family reunion with 10 of us from Montana, NYC, Western Mass & Savannah, GA.  We kayaked, swam, fished.  Key West was really busy - but really FUN!


Well, the consensus is in!  Fandango is our favorite place we've stayed!  The house was great, the pool, the hot tub, and most importantly, the location.  We come to the Keys every year around this time to get the 5 kids, their significant others and us "ole folks" together since we are all spread out over N. America.  We loved Fandango!  Snorkeling right of the docks is wonderful fun.  We parked our boat at the wee dock and we caught some mighty tasty fish!  Kingfish, Tuna, Mahi Mahi.  Yum!

The kayak s were used daily as were the bikes.  Thank you!  Shannon - This garden and landscape is fabulous.  I admired the grounds daily.  loved how you put this all together.  Thank you for sharing your lovely home with all of us.  We'll hope to return next year!  Lucy & Mike

We agree with out two year old grandson as he exclaimed "this is a cool house!"  Everything was ready and waiting for us, so we immediately enjoyed swimming in the pool and checking out the beautiful gardens.


...Eating on the front porch truly was some of the best dining to be found in the lower keys.  We look forward to coming back.
