About the Property
The apartment is in a house on the canal and across from the beach with beach access. It is situated on the ground floor of a two storey Keys house where you would be the only residents. All the amenities would be yours and you would have space, tranquility and privacy in the tropically planted landscape. The backyard is set up for dining, has a charcoal barbecue and a large hot tub to enjoy.
The property is located on a charming one lane street with no outlet. The long sandy beach is located on one side and the canal, with easy access to the ocean and bay is on the other side. You will have the use of chaise lounge beach chairs with cushions for use on beach or the back yard.
The apartment is newly furnished and decorated. It has a king size bed, twin bathroom sinks and a walk- in tumble marble shower. In the living room there is a flat screen TV and the kitchen is fully equipped with granite top cabinets. A modern washer and dryer are in the adjacent laundry room. Local information on stores, restaurants and activities as well as brochures are provided and there is a full time manager who can be contacted if needed.
Both beach and canal (60 foot dock) available at this apartment
Islamorada is known as one of the very best group of islands in the Keys located approximately 2 hours from Miami, an hour and a half from the Everglades and two hours from Key West. All good fun to visit on a day away but there is plenty to do here in Islamorada. Here are a few of the things we like to do.
Robbie's is a very popular place because they offer such a lot of activities. We go snorkelling on their catamaran but you can also do a sunset cruise, go sport fishing, hire a kayak, feed the tarpons, visit historical Indian Key, just shop and have lunch and much more.
The Theatre of the Sea is popular. You can watch up close withpersonal dolphin shows, sea lion shows, parrot shows, and much more.
Worldwide sports is worth a visit. It is an amazing emporium of fishing gear, clothes and accessories boasting a copy of Ernest Hemingway's boat and an enormous fish tank full of local species of fish. They also have an outdoor restaurant and upstairs bar.
For those who love their wildlife, we really do, there is the Turtle Hospital which rescues injured turtles. Apart from learning about our endangered turtle species you get to see them close up and it is wonderful. A popular visit so you must book.
To see the Keys wonderful variety of birds visit the Laura Quinn Wild Bird SanctuaryBird which nurses injured birds back to health.
If you have deep pockets you can swim with dolphins at the Dolphin Research Centre.
There are lots of good restaurants. Below is a list of some of the ones we enjoy.
If you want a real Keys breakfast head to Mangrove Mikes. There is a wonderful extensive menu and a popular following.
To watch the sun go down and eat at tables on the beach we head to Morada Bay.
For very good value and good Cuban Food go to Habanos Ocean Front Dining.
Chef Michael's has a good reputation for upscale dining
One of the most popular restaurants is Lazy Days which specialises in fish dishes always super fresh.
Happy Hour is a favourite at many of the local restaurants.

About the owner: UK based American. Fell in love with the Florida Keys. We rent when we do not occupy the house.
Why this property? Found the house on a laid back friendly one lane no exit street next to the beach and fell in love with it. Spent a long time and a significant amount of money renovating it.
