Car: Necessary

You can locate stores, residences, restaurants, etc. in the Florida Keys by Mile Markers (MM). Most addresses will indicate the closest MM. You will see the MMs clearly displayed along US 1 from Key West (MM 0) through Key Largo (106).

The Florida Keys, especially Islamorada, are famous for sport fishing and diving but that is only the beginning. Islamorada is home to many restaurants and shops. If you are here on the third Thursday of the month, you won’t want to miss the ‘Third Thursday Art Walk’ in downtown Islamorada. The art galleries on the old highway between MM 81 and 82 open their doors for this street party that includes visiting artists, live music, and delicious food.

For the naturalists, just a few miles to the NE in Tavernier is the Wild Bird Center where they rehabilitate injured birds and to the SW in Marathon is the Turtle Hospital where volunteers rescue sea turtles are nurse them back to health. Theater of the Sea at MM 84.5 is an educational marine animal park. Saltwater lagoons and lush, tropical gardens at are home to Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, California sea lions, sea turtles, tropical and game fish, sharks, stingrays, alligators, marine invertebrates, colorful parrots, and birds-of-prey.

The Keys have several wonderful State Parks including John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and Bahia Honda State Park. Just a day trip away is Key West home to the Hemingway House, Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, Mallory Square, the Kino Sandal Factory, and so much more.

If you are coming for the fishing, the area is well known for its bonefish and tarpon fishing on the flats or offshore fishing for larger fish including sailfish and dolphin (mahi-mahi). There are several marinas with fleets of boats ready to take you to the best places to find fish or take your own boat!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are second and third generation Washingtonians currently living in Maryland. I attended the University of Maryland and Ed attended St. Joseph's College in Indiana. When we were younger we skied locally, and in Vermont and Utah. In the mid '1980s something changed -- we didn't want to be cold anymore so we headed south to the Florida Keys.

Why the Owner Chose Islamorada:
We have vacationed in the Florida Keys since 1985 and figured we have spent well over a year there before we decided to buy our own place.We looked at a number of properties from Key Largo to Big Pine and from older ground level houses to high-rise condominiums. We have always loved Islamorada so finding this place was a dream come true.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We saw many great places but Islamorada South had what we wanted. -- a great location, boat dockage, easy ocean access, a swimming pool, club house, and a great condo association. We have worked hard to remodel and update the condo. We had our first guests last winter, 2014!
