Oksana's Oasis is a spacious ocean front property with spectacular views and a large swimming pool with 10 foot overflow spa. Kayaking is great in the shallow waters of the Keys and this rental provides 2 double and 2 single kayaks. There is a long pier that goes out over the shallow water and a floating dock that can accommodate up to a 24' boat. There is a large screened in porch with panoramic views of the ocean. Great location in the Lower Florida Keys; a 20 minute drive to Key West and 20 minutes to Bahia Honda State Park.
This is an older home that has been previously remodeled and updated. The rugs are due for replacement, and scheduled to be replaced in the Fall of 2019. We are continuing to update this home and are in the process of bringing it up to a higher standard. Current condition of this beautiful home will not affect a wonderful vacation experience.

We had thirteen people staying here. The property and home was comfortable and clean. Amy was very helpful and responded to us immediately when we needed her. The home if just beautiful. Especially the master bedroom and kitchen. The decks were beautiful. The pool was great. We fished from the dock and kayaked every morning. It was located centrally in the lower keys so we were able to travel to several places. Absolutely beautiful.

This property was what we were looking for! Plenty of room, beautiful Master Suite and nice kitchen. The house sits on the Bay and the floating dock though small, was able to support our 23 foot boat.

Great place. We enjoyed being outside the most. The tiki hut with a great breeze can not be beat. We would stay again no questions asked.

Had a wonderful time. Sleeping arrangements were perfect for little kids. Loved having coffee on upper porch while watching my grandson and screened porch was great for dinners. I would rent again!

We loved this property. The pool, tiki hut, and view of the ocean can't be beat. We gave the pool the highest rating of any we have found in the 20 or so properties we have rented in the past.
Excellent restaurants abound. The Square Grouper is very close and has fabulous food. Be there when they open or be prepared for a wait - they don't take reservations. Although the Geiger Key Marina Restaurant is a longer drive, it is absolutely worth it. We agree with its designation as a vacation in a restaurant. It's super casual, provides great live music, and has an amazing BBQ on Sundays (and excellent food all other times).
Amy of Walkabout Retreats is super responsive. She took care of minor issues with the pool and TVs as fast as humanly possible.
The house is a bit quirky. Be aware that there is very little in terms of glasses, dinnerware, and cooking utensils (3 unmatched wine glasses, 1 frying pan, for example). The electricity switches also take some getting used to but they work fine.
Rent this house. You will be very glad you did!

Great location, laid out well for a large multi-generation family ranging from 11 to 68. After reading a guestionable review I was a little hesitant, but upon arrival found nothing but pleasant surprises. The house was in excellent, clean condition. New sheets, Tons of nice,new, fluffy towels, (look in the dryer if you don’t see them). New couches. The kitchen/ great room open for a large group. Yes, the range hood is decorative, but we never did much cooking inside. Found the next to new grill on the porch to be great ! The salt water pool and spa was terrific, didn’t have a problem with the temperature, you do have to know how to use it. The ocean view and Sunsets are some of the best ! Fishing off the dock was great. Kayaking so much fun for all. Yes there are “upside down jelly fish” the kids had a great time flipping and watching them...they don’t sting ! Saw seahorses, horseshoe crabs, ....It isn’t a swimming beach ! We brought our water shoes..Close to Key West, easy to go back and forth. Amy and her crew were so accommodating and available to immediately answer any questions...which is important !!
No, it isn’t brand new..but it has been updated nicely and maintained, a beautiful location and has lots of room to spread out, relax and enjoy yourself. Look forward to returning. PS...there are enough coffee filters for 3 yrs.

Plenty of room and the views were amazing.
Stayed December, 2018
We walked in and were thrilled with the property! The view, the space, the ocean!
But then we started noticing things:
• The hood range is decorative, so often when cooking the smoke alarm goes off
• Fireplace in master broken
• Jet tub in master broken
• Seat on double kayak broken
• Irrigation pipes out of the ground throughout the property
• Pool spa does not heat to a warm temperature (seriously disappointing)
• Carpets throughout house need to be cleaned
• Bath towels frayed and stained
• Dark grey sheets in 2nd bedroom stained
• Bedspread and shams in 2nd bedroom need to be washed
• Bathroom floor not mopped, full of hair and powder
• Cushions missing on lounge chairs under cabana
• Couches in living room visibly dirty
• Couch in living room has been cut with a knife!
• Yard needs to be tidied up and palms trimmed
• Asked for a rake to use on the beach the needed to be cleaned up and was given a rake with a broken handle
• No dishwasher soap provided
• No garbage bags
• Hair dryer not provided in each bathroom
• No hammock as in the VRBO pictures
• Detailed cleaning needed
• Shower doors seriously leak
• Round large patio furniture off master bedroom broken from dry rot
Though we did enjoy our vacation, we expected the details to be attended to.

This house was wonderful and spacious. The kitchen was perfect for our Thanksgiving dinner. The outdoor area was the absolute best. We loved hanging out by the pool or on the private beach area. The upper screened in porch has the best views of the gorgeous sunsets. The other pro was how close it was to Key West, such an easy drive. The manager was nice and easy to work with, they deserve alot of credit for getting the house all ready after the hurricane! I would definitely stay again.

My parents rented this house to celebrate their golden anniversary with my family (husband, 2 teenaged boys) and my sister. My boys never got bored with the pool, hot tub, kayaks, multiple rooms to hang out in, and the abundance of nature (geckos, land crabs (!), iguanas, fish to feed at the end of the dock). There were many sitting areas so everyone had a sense of space and privacy. The photos don't do the property justice. It was much more beautiful and spacious than we expected. The kitchen was well apportioned with basic ingredients (oils, spices, etc) left from previous visitors, I assume. There were plenty of decent quality pots, pans, utensils, dishes and silverware. We were pleased to find dishwasher detergent and basic cleaning supplies also. The location was close enough to go to Key West every day, find a fishing charter, visit the nature preserve on Big Pine Key, and enjoy the local restaurants. We would love to come back some day!
