We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect.

This house is perfect for a couple like us with a small dog. Nestled between 2 resort properties, Pelican Bay and Post Card Inn, the house is right on the water and the grounds are beautifully designed and maintained. You feel like you are in a resort, but you have it all to yourself. Sit on the patio and watch the fishing boats come and go and of course the pelicans. There are lots of small iguanas and geckos and one big iguana we nicknamed Iggy. There is also a kayak for your use as well. A very short walk to Theatre of the Seas, Abels Tackle Shop, Starbucks, Ciao (great dog friendly Italian restaurant) and the TIKI bars at Pelican Bay and Post Card Inn. You are very near the commercial center of Islamorada where there is a grocery store and lots of restaurants and shopping experiences. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook in or barbeque on the gas grill on the the patio. King bed is very comfortable and there is a futon in the living room for a short term guest or two. There is wifi, a good cell signal, and a television in the living room and the bedroom. A/C works great but we didn't use it much, we just opened the triple sliders and enjoyed the breeze off the ocean. The house faces east so in January the sunrises between the palm trees across the inlet and creates a spectacular view if you're up early. My wife and I stayed here for the month of January and absolutely loved it. Working with Keys Holiday Rentals was great, they were responsive to all our inquiries and made us feel welcome. We rented it again for next year and can't wait to go back.
We've been coming to the keys for about 10 years. This was the first time we brought our boat and rented a house. Andy and her team at Keys Holiday Rental were outstanding before we even got to the house. Once we got to the house we were blown away, the pictures definitely were underrated not overrated as most other pictures for resorts/hotels usually are. The house is fully stocked with everything you could need, pots, pans, kayak, and even a warm coat in case you need it. We've already booked again for next year! One word of caution there is an orange iguana that really likes to steal your fresh catch!
We loved this condo in a beautiful location with excellent amenities. The standard and facilities are great, beach towels, loungers, coolers , beach chairs in addition to patio sets etc. Just Fabulous!
Excellent service and a fantastic property. Just the way rentals should be!
Comfortable bed, sofa not so comfy. Clean and well decorated. Boat dock very close to house. Nearby boat ramp usable during high tide. Gated driveway for added security. Nice view of the ocean. No place to safely get in the water to cool off. Bait and tackle store next door and grocery store less than a mile.
Unfortunately for us, the weather was on the wetter side for our trip to the keys. Luckily we chose a great Rental to stay in, as we spent a fair bit of time indoors! The rental itself had all the facilities that we needed, was clean and tidy, and we received a warm welcome from everyone at Keys Holiday Rentals. We would love to visit again in the future, perhaps during the non rainy season!
Weather was great! Everything is the same at sunshine place as previous yrs. My mom and I caught a double for my favorite fish (permit) and just an all around blast!
"My husband and I have been visiting Islamorada for the past 5 years. This year we stayed at Sunshine Place for the month of March. Loved it! Great views! Private yet close to resorts and bars/restaurants. Our Pomeranian loved to watch the iguanas and pelicans from the beach. We brought our 18’ bay boat with us the dock was perfect for it and also to launch our paddle boards. Keys Holiday Rentals was a pleasure to work with. Can’t wait to return next March!

My wife and I enjoyed everyday at Sunshine Place. We are very grateful for the opportunity to share this wonderful location and all the amenities of the area. The ospreys, iguanas, pelicans, and all the natural wonders were a joy to behold. ...just wish we could stay longer...
We loved it so much in 2014 that we decided to go back again this year for our 19th anniversary. While there, we went paddle boarding, kayaking and deep sea fishing. Loved the sunrises on the Atlantic side and sunsets from Loralei's and other little spots we discovered. There is so much to do in that area that we decided not to even go to Key West this time. We also enjoyed earing lunch at Wahoo's. Lazy Days and Marker 88 also good eating places. Thanks to the staff at Keys Holiday Rental for being so helpful. I am a camera fanatic, so I got some gorgeous photos!!
We had a wonderful time at Sunshine Place. The accommodations were far above our expectations. I know this is crazy but you have clean comfortable white sheets, great pillows and a comfortable bed! The decor was just like its name. Bright and inviting. Enjoyed our afternoon cocktails with a spectacular view while feeding Fred and his two cohorts lettuce and watermelon . Hope to comeback one day! Caroline & Bill

Beautiful view; lots of privacy; an exceptional experience! The home was immaculate and had a “well-supplied” kitchen. We genuinely enjoyed our stay, We loved getting up in the morning and having coffee by the water.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Sunshine Place to celebrate both of our November birthdays. I have been visiting the keys for many years and this is the best place I have found. The property was very well manicured and very private. It was a little paradise nestled back behind a privacy gate. Although it was Oceanside it was well protected for a small boat and my cockapoo also loved it. We had a couple of iguanas visit and the most exciting was a manatee came in the small canal one morning and we played with it for over an hour. Bentley (my cockapoo) and the manatee almost touched noses. Every morning we drank our coffee and looked out onto the ocean. Very convenient location by the whale harbor bridge and there was a starbucks and a fabulous restaurant Ciao Hound very close by. We ate there twice because it was so delicious. Also really enjoyed Lazy Days, they had the best Conch! The amenities inside the house were great too! Well stocked with just about everything you would need to cook a gourmet meal if you are so inclined to do. The staff at Florida keys rentals really went out of their way to accommodate us too. We were supposed to be there around 3pm and were quite delayed so they were able to work with us and followed up the next day to make sure we had everything we needed. This was a FABULOUS experience.
