Property description

We have completed an inside and outside renovation and it is now available for rent. The Bayview Villa is a private, secluded villa facing Florida Bay and in view of the fabulous Everglades. Quick access to offshore fishing. Located in a lush tropical hammock in a quiet residential area (rare). The villa is approx. 30 feet from the water. The property contains a wading beach and a free marina with night lights, power and water.

The villa itself comes with a fully-equipped new stainless kitchen, full size LG washer and dryer, linens, two queen and one king beds, Cable TV, and a dining room. French doors in the dining area face the bay, spacious 700 square foot patio,and marina giving the feeling of the outdoors being in. Beautiful glass block showers with pebble floors are in both baths.

Islamorada proudly calls itself the 'Fishing Capital of the World' but there is so much more to do

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are Bob and Phyllis Mitchell and have loved the Keys since we moved to Florida in the late 60's. I was an airline pilot for 25 years and at the same time worked as the Marketing Manager for Florida Sportsman Magazine which I still do consulting work for. Phyllis is a retired teacher who now works as a volunteer to a long list of organizations from the local parks to looking out for abandoned or abused children in the Keys. We both are very community involved and are on many committees. We love fishing, especially when our grandchildren are visiting. We did many years of offshore fishing and after that many years of backcountry but are now slowing down on that. Our big love is plants and gardening and we love to keep the Villa property native and beautiful as well as our nearby house on an acre. We will be thrilled to give you a tour of the local plants and what we have done with the Villa property and ours.

Why the Owner Chose Islamorada:
We have loved the Keys since we moved to Florida in the late 60's. Within a few years we discovered the most delightful Keys hideout in Islamorada that is now the Keys Villa we own and rent. At the time it was a small non-typical motel with just a few units. The Villa is a small house on the property, comfortable for four people, and is free standing on an acre property with a free protected Marina. We keep it constantly up-dated and remodeled, and very comfortable for our guests. The small town laid back atmosphere was very attractive but it took us until 1984 for this villa to come up for sale. In December 2009 bought the Bayview Villa and have just completed a full inside/outside renovation and it is ready for your visit. There are three other rental accommodations, owned by friends, on the property so it is very quiet. We love it so much that we bought the property two doors north where we now live. We are nearby for your needs but not there unless you need us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is so quiet with so few guests that folks naturally socialize. Nightly visits to the bay for the sunset, drinks and snacks become a norm. Maybe half the guests to the property are return people for years. A big hit is the occasional visits by an octopus which darts around changing colors as she passes over the bottom. Years ago one was feeding on the shrimp in my bait bag and when the bag was taken away from her she started putting her tentacles up on the dock looking for more. Soft heart, I fed her a few.
