About the Property

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Property Type: Cottage
  • Minimum Stay: 7 nights
  • Pool: No

The Cottage is a free-standing 2 bedroom/2 bath villa located on a small resort property nestled in a native hammock on Florida Bay. The Cottage is a “conch-style” cottage which was just completely remodeled and renovated and is completely new, from the tile floors to the new tongue-and-groove ceiling.

The property is directly on Florida Bay on Upper Matecumbe Key, and the Cottage is approximately 100 feet from the water. The Cottage is fully air-conditioned and has ceiling fans throughout. The bedrooms can accommodated up to 6 people and with the queen-size sofabed in the front room, two more. The appliances, and furniture are new.

We provide pillows, sheets, blankets, and towels and all of your cooking and eating utensils. A washer and dryer are provided for your convenience.

A television with cable tv, a VCR and DVD player, and a stereo are provided for rainy day entertainment. Smoking is not permitted inside the Cottage.

The property is beautiful, based in a native hardwood hammock, extending from US 1 to the bay. It has a protected boat basin which will accommodate boats up to 26 feet. There is a launching ramp for boats, and a swimming area right off the property. Larger boats can be launched at one of several nearby ramps. Rental boats and fishing charters are available locally.

Guests renting the Cottage are able to visit the Village of Islamorada Founders Park with its olympic-size pool, beach, and ball fields. The nearby area has a multitude of restaurants, historic sites and nature preserves, shopping and many activities for children. Local shopping for clothing, souvenirs, and fishing and boating needs is plentiful. Grocery stores are convenient. There are several local attractions if you need a day out of the sun. Key West is a day-trip away.

Islamorada is the Sportfishing Capital of the World. You're minutes away from the best back country (bonefish, tarpon, permit, snook, redfish), blue water (sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, cobia) and reef fishing (grouper, snapper, yellowtail) in the entire Florida Keys. There is quick access to the ocean-side both east and west around the key. Fishing off of our jetty in the evening is alot of fun for the kids. Magnificant snorkeling and scuba diving sites abound in the local area. A wide range of boating activities are available year round since our area of the bay is well protected. Sea Kayacking and canoeing along our shoreline is popular. Of course water skiing and knee-boarding are a hit with the kids.

In addition to the rare and tropical flora which abounds on the property, the fauna which call the property home will entertain you during your stay. An osprey (called Ozzie by the locals) sits atop the trees in the area during the early evenings. We have an octopus in the marina who will look after your shrimp bucket if you leave it in the water. He may even play tug of war with you in the morning, and has been known to become a land animal when he is looking for a handout.

Pete, the Great White Heron, frequently stations himself on the seawall. When you have had a successful day fishing he always seems to have gotten the message and is waiting for you upon your return to the dock. Watch your fillets carefully. If you get diverted, you will see how fast these creatures can move where food is concerned. His cousins, the pelicans, are usually right behind him when the fish cleaning begins and are just as brazen. And don’t be surprised if you walk out to the boat basin and find Izzie, the Iguana sunning himself .

The Cottage is an unique place, and the people who visit, both owners and guests, feel very special about the property. The privacy is wonderful, the accommodations are new and clean, the property peaceful, and the access to the fishing is the best in the Keys, indisputably. We hope you will also find it as special as have we, and will add your name to the growing list who return to enjoy the most gorgeous sunsets and the best fishing and diving in the world.

The Keys Cottage generally rents for 1 week intervals, from Saturday to Saturday. If the Keys Cottage is what you are looking for, please contact us and to reserve the dates. The reservation will be confirmed upon receiving a check for 25% of the total cost of the rental including tax.

We look forward to your visiting our little piece of paradise, and are sure you will have a wonderful and special visit. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at any time.
