Before that first trip to the Keys, we did not truly understand that the Keys are in reality Caribbean islands that share the same turquoise blue ocean waters as the Bahamas, Cuba and the other islands of the Caribbean. In fact, Andros Island in the Bahamas is closer to Marathon, Florida the middle Key as the crow flies than is North Miami or Fort Lauderdale. And most other people who have never known the joy of being in these magical islands do not realize these geographical facts. By way of island culture and ocean views, the Florida Keys have more in common with the Bahamas than the mainland of Florida.
Because we loved sharing the Keys with other people and because we are entrepreneurs at heart, my husband and I started buying and building homes for a vacation rental portfolio. Kim, one of our best friends, had been a frequent guest who loves the Keys like we do. She happily accepted our offer to manage our properties and she moved immediately to the islands. And that is how our business was born. A deep friendship and a shared passion for these very special islands. Just like all of our adult children, even our standard poodles, Layla and Chopper, are happiest when they are in the Florida Keys, running the beaches, chasing iguanas and fishing the sandbars. Just like us and just like we know you will feel too: Happy in the Keys.
