This home is in a gated community in the heart of Islamorada. The site is beautiful, and seemed to have suffered no damage from Hurricane Irma. There are two artificial beaches, and the owner provides two sea kayaks to toodle around the shallow waters adjacent to the beach. The small marina hosts a ton of sea life, including the occasional manatee. The home itself is very modern and beautifully/comfortably done, with no frayed edges (literally or figuratively) anywhere. WiFi was clocked at 60MBPS which is very unusual in a rental home. The pool is a nice size and a great gathering place for owners and renters throughout the day. The property is about 90 minutes from Key West (depending on the traffic) and 3 minutes from Theater of the Sea. A new Publix is going in soon, but the Winn-Dixie in Tavernier is only 10 minutes away for now. The property manager is very responsive and helpful. I can't say enough about what a great property this is.
the community is lovely, this home is subpar. Kitchen drawers had a large amount of roach droppings, apparently cleaners missed this. live roaches were discovered in house, response from property manager was not timely. Our family was very uncomfortable due to this issue. To add to our discomfort the mattress in master should be replaced, it has a big lump in the center and sides are very depressed. Double bed in 2nd BR is very small and extremely low, plus has a lousy mattress. The living room furniture is not as depicted, there are cheap covers on the sofas and they are stained. the bikes are rusty, the kayaks are flat, sit on top, which make them difficult to balance on especially in waves.
Very well appointed and comfortable house, conveniently located to local amenities in Islamorada. It was like a home from home with easy to use washing machine, dryer and dishwasher.
We liked the pool complex which was very well maintained. We particularly liked the beach area near the kyaks where many different colourful fish could be spotted in the shallow water.
It was our first visit visit to the USA and it was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable.
