                  Why the Owner Chose Islamorada:
                  My Grandfather bought this property back in the 1970's. My brothers and I spent our childhood summers, holidays and any chance in between visiting him as often as we could. I developed a love for the water and all the wonder of the Keys at a very young age and to this day every sunset still amazes me. He taught us to cherish all the beauty that surrounds this special place and to share it with as many as we could.
