Private, peaceful, cozy and comfortable. This is an ideal location just steps from the water. All amenities included, just bring your own food and wine. Immaculate inside and out. Plenty of beach chairs, hammocks, and beach umbrellas. Each unit has its own deck with chairs, table and umbrella. Beautiful well groomed grounds. A terrific vacation spot.

We stayed at the Island Bay Resort three nights but it was not enough time to relax and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere created by the owners. Great stop after Key West. Very relaxing. Visiting the Flamingo portion of the Everglades is an option from this location. The room was nice and the property is beautifully cared for. I especially enjoyed...

Our 1st stay here. We stayed in unit #10, closest to the office and main highway. There is no where more pristine that i have seen. Anything we inquired about, Carol and Mike went the extra mile to get us information or recommendations. Never have to fight for a chair or hammock. Very quiet and tranquil. That said though, if...

You will be very happy you chose to visit this small but beautiful slice of paradise! Mike and Carol are the best hosts and they care enough to guide you to personalize your experience like no other resort can. Clean, private, gorgeous. There is no better way to experience the Florida Keys. Go Sparty!

You will not a better place to stay in the Keys. Beautiful grounds that are immaculate at all times. Time is suspended while you stay here. Mike & Carol are the most gracious hosts that will bend over backwards to help make you time here the best. This is not a overly family style resort, but there are plenty of...

Love this place! We have been fans of this quaint hotel for years! It is such a restful location, with it's private beach and your own deck to enjoy. The units are all different and we do love the ones with their own bedrooms but the efficiency units are also perfect for a couple with all that you can need....

This was our first visit to Island Bay and it was wonderful! The grounds and the owners are what make this piece of paradise perfect. Mike and Carol were great hosts and have created such a welcoming environment. Loved those famous Keys sunsets - each night was a spectacular show! We hope to return to Island Bay again soon!

Each cottage is beautifully decorated and has everything you might need from kitchen to bathroom. Mike and Carol are wonderful hosts, available when you need them but never intrusive. They both have extensive knowledge of the area and all the fun things to do. The best I have saved for last-the private beach,pier,water fun equipment and that glorious sunset off...
