Island Home is a great vacation home, very clean and comfortable. The full kitchen and laundry makes life so easy. The upstairs screened in porch is great. WiFi everywhere on the property. We brought our own small boat for back country fishing and just cruising around. The launch is located just down the street. Then you can keep your boat tied up to the dock in the back yard. The Back Yard with Tiki Hut, Pool, Flat Screen, Stereo, Ice Machine, Sink, Grill, Dock....some days we didn't leave the back yard! The Islamorada area was most convenient; places to eat, grocery, shopping, sight seeing, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, snorkeling........whatever. We attended the Woof Stock Festival at Founder's Park with our dog Crosby. That was a blast! The Seafood Festival in Marathon was cool. Sunsets at the boat launch are great, or you can see them from many other places. Watching a Full Moon rise is really cool too. We visited the Park at Key Largo. Saw the African Queen. Drove down to Key West. Bahia Honda. Fed tarpon at Robbie's. Tuna Nachos at the Islander. Drinks at Snappers. We caught Mia Mia, Tuna, Amber Jack, Speckle Trout, Shark, Snapper, Grouper, Pompano and other fish I don't know. Scuba diving in the area is fantastic. Cuban Coffee will get you started in the morning, that's for sure! We saved a few places and things to do for our next visit to the Keys and we look forward to staying at the Island Home!!!

"Welcome to Paradise"
"WELCOME TO PARADISE". This is what the sign says on the gate that leads into the canal-side yard....and it is soooo true!!! My family stayed for 10 days and we had a great time. My daughter, who is 11, enjoyed fishing from the dock and swimming in the pool. The manatees were a big hit with her also. We rented a boat and went fishing everyday!! How awesome it was to have a boat right at the house, ready for us to jump in at any time. We enjoyed eating all our meals outside, either in the screened in porch upstairs, or downstairs in the tiki hut. It was nice to hang out by the pool, watching tv, and eating dinner. So very relaxing!! Also, the house is close to many different activities that we enjoyed. We went to Theater of the Sea, just down the road from the house. Our daughter swam with the dolphins and loved it. We went to Robbie's and fed the tarpon, we went to John Pennekamp park, and several trips :) to World Wide Sportman (aka Bass Pro Shop) . The supermarket is close, as well as interesting stores to buy souvenirs, and restaurants with delicious food (we went to MM88, Island Grill, and Islamorada Fish Co.-all outside dining. Shula Burger, inside dining ) . We enjoyed our vacation, and our 11 year old daughter was NEVER bored, which is quite an accomplishment!! On a scale of 1-10 our family gives this vacation experience a TEN!! We can't wait to go back again!!
