This was exactly what we were looking for in the Keys. Super quiet, laid-back, low-key place with an amazing beach! Besides a few other guests that would wander down, it seemed we had the beach to ourselves for the day. Loved taking the kayaks out to explore the shoreline. Sunsets right from our waterfront cottage were amazing. Breakfast on our own beachfront patio was a dream. Bathroom was newly updated. Cottage was cute. Great food on the Keys so we didn’t do much cooking but appreciated the large fridge for snacks and beverages. Try Mrs. Mack’s homemade key lime pie right next door! If we ever make it down to the keys again we will definitely be staying here and have already recommended these beach cottages to friends.

The room had broken blinds which I had to cover with a shopping bag so that no one could see in, Also loose and broken ceramic tiles that were sharp and dangerous right between the beds. The kicker was that you have to pay a quarter for ice! We were scheduled to stay 7 nights and left after the first night and went somewhere else.

Thank you for your rave review. The Pelican is in a beautiful location. ( Not to mention the fantastic sunsets).Most needs & wants are within walking distance. So happy you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you once again.

Property had their own beach, boat ramp (I didn't need) and docks. Having kayaks available for free was a nice perk. Multiple stores and restaurants were within walking distance. It's an older place with some eclectic fixtures, but rooms were adequate; well fitted with large flat screen cable TV, microwave refrigerator and clean. The atmosphere was laid back like the Keys should be and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
