Property description

For a relaxing vacation experience. It’s time to change your latitude, attitude and immerse your body and mind in the calming, soothing waters that surround this Florida Keys paradise. So come enjoy Gulf waterfront sunsets in Islamorada, Florida. (OK. I agree, it's kind of corny but oh so very true.)

We offer you our spacious and clean 2 bedroom plus loft area / 2 bathrooms townhouse, which sleeps 4 to 6 very comfortably. Our townhouse is elegantly-appointed with full new kitchen, two new updated & expanded bathrooms, a complete new office, nice quiet bedrooms for deep relaxful sleeping, and numerous amenities to make you feel completely at home.

We do our best so you don't feel like you're in a hotel. Instead you will be in your home away from home. (By the way, we can recommend numerous very nice and well priced hotels in this area as well.)

The Bathrooms:
Since purchasing our home at end of 2011, we have done a series of upgrades, including two major projects within just the last year. For one, we recently completed the expansion of the master bathroom. It is now the most spacious bathroom possible in this community, with high open ceiling which shows off the natural wood beams above. The shower’s surrounding walls and floors are beautifully tiled and enclosed with glass and stained glass window feature. To top it off, we installed a new spa-like rain-like shower with multiple body sprays which gives the very best showering experience possible, even better than many 5-star retreats. My wife, a fully licensed designer, created this luxurious bathroom area. As part of this same project, we upgraded and redesigned the first floor bathroom. This included adding a new awesome “over-head rain” shower.

The Kitchen & Living Areas:
The other major project was the complete expansion of our kitchen. It is now the most spacious and functional kitchen possible. We also supplied our kitchen with just about EVERYTHING that you may need for creating delicious family meals. So you simply step and you can enjoy cooking while still being engaged with everyone.

The kitchen has an open design that flows with the rest of the first floor. On one side of the kitchen is a breakfast area for morning coffee and chats. While on the other side, there is a large and inviting family friendly table and entertainment area.

Entertainment Area:
First floor has very comfortable open layout, which is very accommodating for families. We offer the newest entertainment technology TV / DVD player / secure WiFi / Roku / cable channels, Sony stereo, and a special option of Internet connected tiny computer viewed from 37” TV screen and more. Plus a small library of books / magazines and some music DVD and movies.

Semi-Private Backyard:
Our backyard is very private due to wall and surrounding trees, gardens, privacy wall on one side. Our personal semi-private backyard patio is furnished with complete outdoor patio furniture (table, shade umbrella, chairs, and tiki torches). For the grill master, we have a very functional BBQ with two propane tanks ready to go.

Bedrooms & More:
Our place has 2 full bedrooms, plus a nice large loft area. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed (with great high-quality comforter, sheets, and pillows) and digital Samsung cable TV on wall. We get many compliments on comfort and sleep on our high-end mattress, with many asking us for the mattress brand.

The 2nd bedroom is very spacious with two full size beds and a comfy foldout bed. There is also an open loft area that has two twin beds. All rooms, including loft, have their own Comcast Cable TVs (4 in all).

Home Office Area:
We created a separate area for working, studying, reading or just playing on a computer. We have a desk & new high-end new highly comfortable executive chair, extra flat panel monitors, keyboard/mouse, and printer. These are all ready to connect to your personal laptop. This area is fully stocked with even Dell and Lenovo laptop power supplies.

Too Many Amenities to Count:
We have numerous additional amenities to our vacation home. This includes some bikes (2 for adults), various size snorkeling gears (with diver/snorkeling flag), 4 to 5 higher end tennis equipment, fishing gear and net, beach floats, beach chairs, picnic coolers, a large array of beach towels, beach bags, sand castle building stuff for kids, various board games, balls, Frisbees, hats, mosquito zapper, and the list keeps growing. You can take these to local parks so you will not need to rent as much stuff. (If not sure, just ask us. I’m pretty sure that we have it.)

All comfortable bedding, linens, bath towels and towels included. (No cheap 'sand paper feeling' towels or linen found here.) You walk in and all beds are made. (No bed in a bag found here.)

Our Special Location:
Our condo is in a private with 24-7 onsite security and yet everything is close by. Our townhouse is a very short walk to the pool and clubhouse. The big heated pool surrounded by lounge chairs, the fishing pier and private beach area. Manatees come by swimming around the community fishing pier / boat dock.

Due to the picturesque community shoreline (with its small lighthouse, boats), it provides incredible daily sunset photo ops. So bring your camera and a favorite drink to relax in the beach chairs in this family friendly setting as the sun goes down.

You are within walking distance to Founders Park Complex, which offers a large Olympic sized pool with diving boards, kiddie water park, large sandy beach with playground in front, beach volleyball court, walking jogging bicycling trails, full basketball court, large soccer and baseball fields, amphitheater, and more. Plus Founders Park has full marina with rental boat dock slips available. There are numerous very popular year round free events at Founders Park.

All situated in Islamorada, the Sport Fishing Capital of the World.

The Extras:
My wife has prepared a 3-ring binder with information about the local area (site seeing, local events, many discount coupons, maps, and more). Our home is surrounded by plenty of great places to eat. Just read our reviews and guestbook for ideas of best eateries and fun things to do. Plus we will be available for any questions via text messaging before and during your vacation.

Very Clean:
Our townhouse is kept super clean. Absolutely NO Smoking in unit. Sorry, no pets are allowed by condo association rules. No carpeting, just smooth high-end tiles & wood flooring, marble floors & counter, washer/dryer, screened doors. and ceiling fans to circulate the air in all rooms.

Extra Value & Our Rates:
Our rates should be comparable to others but we feel very strongly that we offer so much more in terms of location, actual home value, extra comfort, and sheer amenities. Note that our published rates are for double occupancy. There is charge for adding guests (yes - including children). There is a choice of insurance or damage deposit. You will be able to pay by credit card, eCheck or check. There is a non-refundable payment to hold reservation and 60-day cancellation date range. But refunds may take place if we can re-rent.

Selecting Our Guests:
We look forward to speaking to those that are interested in our home. Yes, we take the time to speak to all guests that visit our home. We want to assure that our home is a good match for you and that you are a good match for us. We look for folks that will take care of home and will respect our neighbors and friends.

Number of Guests & Extra Charges:
It is a reasonable assumption that additional guests increase our costs. Therefore, we do have a slight additional daily charge per guest beyond two. Security will monitor the number of guests.

Helpful Suggestions For Fastest Response:
We do request all inquiries have phone number and number of the number guests clearly stated. Also please check calendar to see if available. Please ask any important question or even an extra clarification to help you with your decision. It's your vacation. Believe me, if an owner is offended it simply means that his place was not for you.

MONTHLY RENTAL COMMUNITY:
Community rules calls for monthly rental policies. So we use that as our guide and so may prorate for a given month.

Sincerely,
Owners

2 Beaches - Private & Founders Park Sandy Beach

Car: Recommended

Ultimate resort setting. Take one-minute walk from condo to our sandy beach / pool / boat dock/fishing area. This are all private within our community with 24/7 security. There's easy access for snorkeling and kayaking. Be active - go swimming or play tennis in Club facilities. Walk or take our bikes next door to Founder's park, which includes another really nice sandy beach, sand volleyball court, cycling trails, exercise/walking trail, soccer fields, baseball fields, and Olympic pool. We're very close to supermarket, pharmacy, cinema, and hospital. Just a few minutes drive or bike ride to area restaurants. Close to world-famous Tiki Bar and numerous many, many fun places. A daily must see event is the amazing beach sunsets. Just watch from beach chairs or from our dock with a beverage in hand.

Our vacation home is smack in the middle of Islamorada. We are surrounded by numerous excellent restaurants within a short drive. Our area is very peaceful, away from any noise. We enjoy taking our bikes out and about (on the bike paths).

As taken from some of our guest reviews: 'The condo is located in a secure, gated community. The facilities & grounds are clean and very well maintained. The condo itself was perfect for our needs. It was clean and equipped with everything we could possibly need, and we quickly felt as though we were at home. The owners were readily available to respond to any questions or concerns and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay would be a memorable one.' Another wrote 'fun at Founders Park (beach, volleyball court, baseball fields) which is walking distance next door... The sunsets are beautiful! All the beds were so comfortable and the upstairs bathroom is amazing!'

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I grew up in New England. So I know about cold. I grew up rooting for all the local Boston teams. Of course, the Red Sox and Patriots always broke my heart for many, many years. I graduated from a major New England college and then went on to work in Information Technology for many major corporations. Along the way, I got to live in Connecticut and Michigan. All great places with truly awesome people. But they were so very, very cold in winter and spring. My beautiful wife is from the Caribbean Islands. She is a certified interior designer for a full service architectural interior products distributorship and furniture dealer in South Florida. We have been married for twenty plus years and have two daughters, plus their two cats. My wife is the one who showed me the importance of taking family vacations and our own special getaways. We have vacationed in numerous US cities, throughout the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico. Plus we have made multiple trips to enjoy Europe (Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Malta and England). Yes, we have created great vacation memories for ourselves! So we truly hope that you will find the Florida Keys, Islamorada, and our Vacation Home very special and a place where you can create your own lasting memories. Best Regards, Owners

Why the Owner Chose Islamorada:
We chose this property since we enjoyed snorkeling and diving, fishing, site seeing, photography, and the area’s good food and ongoing events. Since we enjoyed snorkeling and diving, site seeing, and the area’s good food, we had been coming down to Islamorada & Key Largo. We always dreamed of owning a second home right here in the Keys. Finally, a good friend told us about this Islamorada community. We came down and visited him at his place in EBC and simply fell in love. We saw first hand the beautiful family oriented pool and clubhouse. From EBC’s private boat dock, we traveled out on his boat and took in all the wonderful relaxing water adventures and returned just in time for the spectacular gulf sunset. I think that we were completely sold with that final sunset! Having done so much traveling, we know that EBC is a special place. It is so easy to just relax reading or listening to music by the pool. While there are plenty of opportunities to add excitement of the local destinations. These are as close as the EBC dock or Founders Park next door. By the way, our vacation home is only a nice 1.5 hour scenic drive north to Miami and famous South Beach restaurants and activities. Plus you also head further south on a day trip Seven Mile Bridge, Bahia Honda, or Key West. To get to that special furthest southern point in US, you drive about 1 hour and 45 minutes surrounded on both sides by beautiful water scenery.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
You will enjoy the numerous amenities offered by this Islamorada community, such as the bay front heated pool, which is conveniently right next to air-conditioned clubhouse and lounge, outdoor patios and community BBQ cooking areas with tiki huts, and plus two immaculate lighted tennis courts (rackets provided). Next take a two-minute stroll over to the private sandy beach area and take a dip in the ocean water, or sit in one of the various beach chairs and just take some sun. Don’t forget to come back here and wait for the beautiful sunsets. You will treasure memories and the photos of your spectacular waterfront sunsets. The days are as active as you want in this Islamorada community. You will see folks walking, riding bikes, or skating around the complex. You can fish alone on the pier / boat dock or just sit and read as the gulf waters surround you. You can walk over next door to Founders Park Sports Complex, which has walking and cycling trails, soccer fields, baseball fields, skate park with incredible boarding ramps, white sandy beach, Olympic size pool, special events and much more... Founders Park has marina with boat slips and ramp. Leave all concerns behind since our place is in a private gated community, with 24 hour security. Your biggest concern is what to do each day, what music to listen to, and where to have lunch and dinner. (I recommend that you load your iPod with Jimmy Buffet.)
