House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
We love to fish and just be around the water. I know you will love the great views and wonderful dockage at my home. We enjoy sharing it with responsible families. We have created many great memories at this home and I know you will also. Be sure to send an email to get up to date rates, availability and information about the home!
Chris purchased this House in 2008
Why Chris chose Islamorada
We fell in love with this spot because the views are unbelievable. Also the location provides easy access to all our favorite spots for fishing, diving, swimming and dinning! Can't be beat.
What makes this House unique
The charm of this home is its privacy, great dockage, beautiful views, crystal clear deep water and the beach out the front gate. Unassuming relaxed elegance. So much nature right outside the home. Luxury inside and natural beauty outside. Just a great place to have an extended stay of 28 days or more.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Pros-The house was nice and in a great location. The owner was easy to get In touch with and helpful. Had a good time with family.
Cons- The guest bedroom had what appeared to be dirty stained sheets. The a/c was set to not go below 72 degrees. Overall a good place though.
Property was just as described. We have stayed in Islamorada many times but typically stay in Port Antigua which is very close by. We enjoyed this property more because of the privacy and the outdoor areas. There are so many places to enjoy the outdoors. It is also very close to the bay and offshore water access. We hope to return very soon!
Hidden Sportsman Gem
Just returned from a great stay at this property!Like my title says its a hidden gem for sportsman, Although I would recommend it to any vacationer that likes a little seclusion as its tucked back off the road to offer a good bit of privacy. This property was clean and well maintained, Chris the owner was really easy to get messages to and responses back quickly. I'm a long time Key's vacationer and have rented a bunch of homes in the area, and I thought this home to be a good value with a lot of little things that make for a good vacation. My group of 4 large guys found the large beds very comfortable, it has a really large screened in porch for a great sitting/eating/cocktail area, with a great view of the basin area and some good ocean views looking towards the east. There was plenty of parking and great storage under the house for all the stuff you bring on vacation and never use, (for us it was mostly a back country fishing vacation , so we stored a bunch of gear an extra trolling motor, pinfish traps a bicycle and tons of other stuff, it was great piece of mind to have a safe area for stuff like that with easy dock access, this area would be perfect storage for a dive vacation to dry wet gear and get ready for your next trip in the shade) Also a good sized bait/fish freezer down there. The dock has great water pressure and electrical outlets with a good sized cleaning table, and deep water from the dock all the way out to the ocean, I would say you could easily keep a large twin outboard boat or medium size inboard boat there with no worries about hitting bottom getting in or out of the basin. This home really had a great feel to it, it captures the essence of the keys well, we saw a lot of small and large birds a few iguana's and had a nice visit from a large manatee while we cleaned fish! Everybody in my group agreed that it was just far enough out of town to enjoy the seclusion of the area but not so far you couldn't get what you needed quickly. Many times its tough to get a feel through pictures and descriptions for a rental home, Truly this home has a great balance of location, Tranquility, ocean and bay access and creature comforts needed to have a great vacation.....we'll definitely be back!!!
The house was great! Beautiful view and enough room for the family. Loved every minute of our stay.
Our family just got back from an Amazing trip staying at Chris's home!! This was our first trip to the Keys and we are already talking about re-booking for next year. The pictures don't give you the whole picture of this property. The entire side of the house is a Huge screen porch that looks all the way out towards the Gulf without any other homes in the way. We brought our 28' foot boat with us and there was plenty of room to park it at the dock and our trailer we backed in under the house. We launched the boat a few miles past the home at Seabird Marina. It was a nice Marina and big enough for our boat. They also have bait, ice, beer etc.. There is a little side street running parallel to the main highway that we were able to pull off on until we backed the trailer in all the way down their driveway and it was easy to get it under the house. The inside of the house was adorable and had everything we needed to feel comfortable. A Publix just opened there last week and is about 8 miles back in Islamorada. The outside of the house was great for chilling out. Our children fished and had a blast with the casting net catching all kinds of things. Lower Matacumbe was just the right speed for our family. It is much smaller than some of the bigger keys and has a few restaurants but is literally 2 miles back to a much busier Islamorada. Our favorite place to eat by car was Pierre's and The Beach Cafe at Morada Bay. They share the same beautiful gulf front beach. Pierre's is pricey and fine dining and The Beach Cafe is the laid back side. The grounds are absolutely lovely!! Our favorite place by boat was Hog Heaven on the Atlantic side. We ate here several days after snorkeling around Cheeca Rocks and the Lighthouse. The lighthouse was amazing! SO many fish!! We found a great underwater sandbar that was a local hangout just out from the house and around the front. There were tons of boats anchored there and all the people stood out in the water enjoying themselves. The kids could stand and throw the ball. That was lots of fun!! We had so much fun and fell in love with the Keys! We can't wait to go back!!
Fantastic Keys Getaway
Chris's house is clean, well maintained and offers plenty of space including a great screened in porch. We fished from the dock each morning and caught sharks, a stingray and watched a manatee. Chris was very helpful and had completed some repairs after the hurricane. It appeared the Keys fared better than the news channels portrayed. I would recommend his place to anyone and appreciate his excellent customer service. Our group rented a fishing charter and traveled to Key West and had a great time there as well.
The fishing is wonderful in this area - Easy access to Bay and Ocean! Bridges and reefs are very close by. The options are endless. The home has several balconies and sitting areas with views of the lush tropical landscape and overlooking the crystal clear water!
