Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: George & Bonnie
We fell in love with the Florida Keys many years ago. We have rented and stayed in the Keys from Big Pine Key north to Key Largo and have always dreamt of owning our own place. George is a licensed builder and wife Bonnie have been involved in many residential restorations. 19 years ago we stumbled upon a ground level conch style home in need of a great deal of work. After a long thought process we decided to purchase and renovate this home. Today, after years of work, we are proud of our island home. We welcome you to enjoy this very unique, very private home.
Why this property? With our experience vacationing in the Florida Keys we found ourselves wanting to truly enjoy an Island living lifestyle. We definitely have it on Lower Matecumbe Key, an island less than 5 miles in length. There is little commercial real estate with a very close community. It is a place where visitors blend in with the locals. We believe this is the best island in the Florida Keys if one wants to be truly enjoy the island living experience

We caught dinner within 30 minutes after unpacking!!Manatees visited the dock daily! No, i wont stay any where else in the Keys but here!!

Thank you so much for your kind words! It brings us much joy that you truly enjoy our home.
Great Location for multiple outdoor activities
This has all that you need for 4 people. Great boat dock for those that have one or will rent a boat. Super easy access to ocean and the same for gulf side. You can fish any wind because of the location. Wading the flats is 1/2mile north for those who fly fish. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Great little restaurant is 200 yards away not to mention great good and drinks in abundance both north and south. Day trip to Key West should be on your agenda. Kitchen has all your needs. Well worth taking advantage of this location as we had a great 5 days!!

Thank you! We hope you stay with us in the future. You and Henry were great renters.
Cannot beat the view.
My wife and I rented this house for an entire month. Met all our needs and the location is hands down the best for fishing & lobstering (our primary objective). Afternoon cocktails on the dock is a daily ritual. Manatees would show up like clock work. Quiet street. Neighbors are friendly. Easy walk to Caloosa Cove for any needs from the convenience store. Only drawback for us was no washer or dryer. We rigged a clothesline for drying purposes but still needed to use the laundry mat in Islamorada for washing clothes. Otherwise I would rate 5 stars. George & Bonnie were prompt to respond if we had a question or issue. Would definitely book again. Thank you for sharing your home!

Thank you Matt! It is nice to hear that you and your wife had a good stay at our home.
THE PLACE TO BE
This is the third year that I've visited Florida Keys. And again , I chose to stay at this Island Conch Cottage located in Lower Matecumbe Key. The home is always clean, neighbors are always friendly the neighborhood is always quiet and the fish are always biting!The home also has a bait room with a deep freezer which came in very handy for storing all the fish we caught fishing from the dock right off the patio of the home. The owners Bonnie and George are always available for any questions that you may have and return phone calls promptly. Also, once you check in they will check with you to make sure everything is okay and that you are comfortable. Each year I look forward to returning, this home never disappoints.This is the place to be!!

Thank you Debra for your kind words! We think of you as family.
Second time Around
This is the second time we stayed at this island conch Cottage, this is a beautiful home the neighborhood is very quiet and the locals are always friendly. We caught a variety of snapper just off the patio dock. I would recommend this home for a couple or two that want to experience great fishing and rest and relaxation. The owners are always very nice and available for any questions and always return calls promptly. Our Second Time Around vacationing in lower matecumbe key at this beautiful home was even better than the first!!!
