Wonderful place and home
The house was amazing and had all of the amenities needed on a vacation. Beds were extremely comfortable, and it was a plus that each bedroom had its own bathroom. We loved the plunge pool, as well as the community pool a few steps away. Shops and a few local restaurants were within walking distance. We would definitely return for a future visit.

Great Keys getaway!
We absolutely loved staying at Heart of Morada. It was perfect for our family of six - great location, wonderful accommodations. We thoroughly enjoyed the water toys - paddle board and kayaks....even paddled to LoriLeis one night. We will definitely be coming back and would recommend HoM to our friends!

Home away from home in paradise!
Our family stayed in Heart of Morada for Spring Break, April 2023. The home is in the perfect location, close to everything in Islamorada. Our 3 children loved having access to the kayaks, SUP's, plunge pool as well as the community pool. The dedicated boat slip was so nice to have as we went boating almost every day during our stay. The state-of-the-art kitchen had everything you could ever need, even the laundry room made doing laundry enjoyable! The home was spotless with beautiful artwork and comfortable beds. Coral Cove is a very quaint community with brick paved road and gated entrance. Mark and Doli were wonderful hosts who responded quickly with any questions that came up. Our family can't wait to come back!
