Great house... Great location!
The house we rented was GREAT! It was on a canal- had a pool and was in a great location of Islamorada. It was clean when we arrived. The pool was clean as well. It has all the amenities anyone would need for a week’s vacation. It’s set up with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths on the upstairs main floor. Then there was another living area and bedroom and bath on the lower level by the pool. There’s a HUGE porch along the back of the house on the main upper level. It was WONDERFUL! We had our coffee out there every morning... ate out there for dinner when we ate in- the grill is our there as well. There was always a breeze...a beautiful view of the canal and pool. The neighborhood it was in felt very safe. We enjoyed several restaurants during our stay. We took an uber almost every night so we could enjoy our cocktails before and after dinner. There was never a problem getting one to pick us up at the house and never waited long for one to arrive. Great stay and we plan to go back!!!

Thank you Jay for such a great review. So glad you enjoyed our vacation home and look forward to your return request. Sincerely JoAn
We were extremely satisfied with our choice in the house we rented for the month of February. We felt like we were in a home verses a house. It was very clean and comfortable. The large dock was very handy for docking 2 boats. Tiki hut was a great place to sit and unwind after a day of fishing. The heated pool was a bonus for our visiting grandchildren. JoAn was a gracious host and answered all of our questions in a timely fashion. We love the location of this house the most. It’s close to everything in Islamorada. Many great restaurants and a grocery if you want to cook. We plan on returning next year. Oh and the home is pet friendly which is very important to us.
