Relax in Islamorada, Florida Keys... 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World.' Enjoy deep blue water or back country fishing. Dive, snorkel, and swim on a clear, white, sandy beach (rare in the Keys!). Walk/jog among beautiful waterfront homes. Sip wine while gazing at glorious sunsets while surrounded by coconut palms.
Manatees, tarpon, mangrove snappers, and other native fish species swim the waters off our dock. Beautiful tropical vegetation, shore birds, and other marine life are all around you. You will cherish the memories of your stay in this 'Island Paradise.' Islamorada is known as 'The Purple Isle' and is located in the heart of the Florida Keys - midway between bustling Miami and laid-back Key West.

About the owner: My wife and I both work for the Department of Defense. We love traveling and I guess that helps seeing that we have been all over the world for our jobs. We enjoyed living full time in the Keys and always found plenty to do. The house has been venue for many large Thanksgivings, many parties and one wedding, so far. We are ready for others to make our home feel like theirs. So, kick back, enjoy a rum drink under the Tiki Hut and get to know the locals. Guaranteed to make your vacation or long term stay an event you will not likely to forget.
Why the Owner Chose Plantation Key:
We had the house built starting in 1997. We started driving down from Miami on Friday nights and worked on finishing the house. We started stretching the days out and eventually found ourselves living there full time and commuting. The drive to and from work was so relaxing, so we didn't mind the time. Everything there just makes you want to stay.
