After looking on line for a vacation home in the Keys that fit certain criteria such as being able to accommodate 7 adults, on the coast and a dock to moor a 23ft boat (not in a canal), I found Peninsular House off Grassy Key Harbor. Dave was very easy to work with. We enjoyed relaxing on the screened in porch away from the bugs and watching the beautiful Sunrises from the Master bedroom porch. We also got to see the lunar eclipse and the giant full moon. Dave provided lots of amenities such as kayaks, a canoe, boogie boards, lots of playing cards and games. He does have an abundance of pots and pans for cooking. We totally enjoyed ourselves and it was a good location to go to Key West for a day.and also to view the 7 mile bridge from the boat. Thank you Dave

Once you round the bend in the drive where everything opens up to the bay, and that perfect private dock greets you, with a delightful tiki picnic table on the point just beyond, you can feel your cares just slip away. Staying at the Peninsular House is wonderfully unique experience, and the owner, David, has made sure you have everything you need to thoroughly enjoy it. A wide selection of kayaks makes exploring the surrounding mangroves a magnificent treat that is right out your back door. The mini pool area, alongside a little beach, with a variety of outdoor furniture, makes the whole ground floor perfectly geared toward relaxation, and the charming house built on stilts above feels like home. The whole property is true gem, tucked away where no one can find you. There were a couple of moonlit nights we spent staring out at the water that were simply mesmerizing. Well done, David. What a uniquely special place you have created, and what a pleasure it was to have soaked it in.

This was our second time staying at the peninsular house. The first time with our kids, and now this time with two other adult couples. We spent most of our time at the house enjoying the spectacular sunrises, kayaking the bay, snorkeling around the peninsula, fishing off the newly rebuilt dock, making friends with the iguanas and lots of time lounging in the hot tub and pool. We left the house infrequently since we had all we needed at the house to make for a perfectly relaxing vacation. Thanks Dave for sharing your slice of paradise!

This was our third vacation at the Peninsular House, and it’s one of our favorite places to visit. The house is completely secluded, making it super quiet and peaceful. We were also able to let our dog run around and enjoy himself - chasing iguanas was his favorite thing to do! We also caught enough fish from the dock to have fish tacos for dinner a few nights. We saw tons of wildlife right from the pier - stingrays, nurse sharks, sea turtles, a manatee, and lots of fish! The water is crystal clear making it easy to see things swimming by. We also love kayaking and the sandy beach made it super easy to launch. We also enjoyed the pool just about every day we were there. We love the Peninsular House and highly recommend it!

I’ve wanted to stay here for years but unfortunately it was always booked the times I’ve tried to stay here. I was extremely excited to get the opportunity to book it for our October 2021 trip. This house definitely did not disappoint. You could never leave this house your entire vacation and have an amazing time. The kayas and paddle boards were enjoyed by all. I was surprised by the amazing snorkeling right off shore, we saw so many fish. A manatee stopped by for a visit one afternoon. The pool and hot tub were clean. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. My family and two friends had an amazing vacation. This is now my favorite rental and will hopefully return soon. David was a great host.

PROS: This is a beautiful piece of property. The view is gorgeous and private. The use of the paddle boards and kayaks were nice. The a/c worked good. The owner was responsive when we needed him. CONS: -Unable to use all kayaks because they were filthy/like disgusting -Stove takes forever to pre heat -Pool heater stayed on so it was quite warm. (The pool company did turn it off but for some reason kept flipping back on) -READ THE CONTRACT WELL. Pennies count to this owner. YOU get charged for EVERYTHING! Parking your boat $75 bucks -Owner is not returning our $250 deposit for 2022 mini lobster season and we have not signed a contract as he states "you will receive a refund less a $ 200.00 the re-advertising fee."

Bill Bates July 17, 2021 – July 31, 2021 sent on July 31, 2021 Upon check out: David Thomas: Bill how was everything? Bill Bates Reply: Wonderful. Thank you for letting us stay at your home Upon my visit to the Peninsularhouse Saturday July 24th the catamaran kayak tandem was secured off the dock, along side their fishing boat. We are sorry the vacation rental home was not acceptable. The $ 75 fee for docking boats to the dock is levied to cover maintenance costs. David Thomas: Bill how was everything? Bill Bates Reply: Wonderful. Thank you for letting us stay at your home.

I can't get over how my days in paradise have come to an end. Had such a great time at this place because you have total privacy. Had a blast on the small private beach, was able to sun bathe completely in the nude and enjoy my privacy. After that I would go to the dock with some beers and fish for hours! I truly want to thank you Dave because me and my family had a blast in you small paradise home. Thank you and we will be back

We had a great time with our children. Dave was very pleasant and great to work with. The weather could not have been better. Beautiful 80 degree everyday and sunshine. The nights and stars were awsome. We all enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards. Thank you for sharing your home Dave. Will be back next year. The Ohioans.

This is the third time we stayed at the Peninsular House and needless to say we LOVE it! This is a vacation spot that will allow you to "stay put" with all of the amenities right there out your doors. From the back door that takes you down to the grill, pool and hot tub to the side door that walks you down to your relaxing hammocks and the front door that spits you out to the dock, ocean, kayaks and your very own little tiki hut. This place is "our family vacation spot" that we will continue to return to as many times as possible. The best thing you ask? The family memories we are making with our son. From early morning and late night fishing off of the dock, to day time fun in the sun in the pool and to star gazing into the weeeee hours of the night in the hot tub. Our snorkeling and kayak adventures to seeing sea turtles, sharks, and so many more of God's creatures in the ocean and sky. The house has everything you need. I honestly can not think of an item we have needed over our stays that was not there. Dave...thank you again for making our vacation easy and best of all relaxing. We WILL be back!!
