This place is really away from the "action" of Islamorada, but it is a gem of a place. The views are spectacular and the rooms are great. If you wanted to cook a full meal in your room, it's definitely doable. We met some families that stopped at the grocery store and stocked up on sandwich supplies for lunches to...

Our guests have the right to book for their next visit if they pre-book before they check out. No one can book over a year in advanced... Hence, if someone is coming in August 2016 they have the first opportunity to book for August 2017. Sorry if there was misunderstanding/confusion about our policies.

We stayed here March 26th thru the 31st. Hate to brag it up to much as it is small and I don't want the rooms to get booked. My husband and I went with my daughter, son-in-law and twin grandsons age 13. They love to fish. The rooms are right next to the dock for fishing. They fish all day....

The location, friendliness, sunsets, and vibe...all remarkable in every way. We loved the tide pool, the heated pool, and the lush green vegetation of this place. Now to be sure it is a very simple place, but I mean that in the best way. If you are looking for a very comfy yet NOT opulent place to enjoy the waterfront...

I almost hate to review this place but only because it's a great secret place we'd love to keep to ourselves. Stayed for 5 days and enjoyed every minute. Staff makes you feel at home, and grounds were immaculate. Comfy beds, clean rooms, and the kitchen in our room was a bonus. Nice heated pool. Planning our stay for next...

This is a beautiful location and is an immaculately kept property. Old time Keys experience at its best. Plus a place to keep your boat in the water. Perfect! Tranquil and picturesque. Morning coffee on the verandah was the best. If you're looking for a place to truly unplug from the rat race, this is it.

I found this resort through Trip Advisor...and so glad I did! From the moment we drove through the tree-lined driveway...we were amazed at the beauty of this hidden treasurer. The grounds are beautiful. The cottages are so clean and quaint. The staff is top-notch! Angie and Linda are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They go the extra mile for their guests....

My husband and I took a short weekend away in December and fell in love with this place. The room was very spacious and the patio off our room was great. You can sit out there chat with your neighbors, grill out or even relax after a day of fishing. Linda is wonderful and you will see her driving by...
