About the owner: We bought this condo with the intent to have this tropical retreat become our winter retirement home. We love the beautiful peaceful location and the crystal clear waters and watching pelicans fly past the balcony, sometimes so close you feel you could almost touch them. We like watching the fishing boats leave and enter Tavernier Creek just north of us. Also love the beautiful clear starry nights. It is still a few years till retirement with a young child, so in the meantime, we are happy and busy enjoying life in Wisconsin.
Why the Owner Chose Islamorada: After looking at many condos in the Middle Keys and Upper Keys, we bought this wonderful 5th floor oceanfront end unit because of the bright open feel of the layout and wonderful panoramic views. So many condos in the Keys feel like you are in a tunnel with no side windows. The large extra window in the living room makes you feel as though you are in a home rather than a condo. We also loved that both bedrooms have a full ocean view, which is very unique, and that you can access the oceanfront balcony from both bedrooms as well as the living room. An unsuspected surprise was the privacy afforded by this property - and that the pool is situated in such a way that one doesn't feel as though in a 'fish bowl' while swimming or lounging poolside.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We enjoy the wonderful sunrise and reflective sunset views and the peaceful, serene location as this condominium community is not on US 1, so there is no traffic noise. We really love that our condo is directly on the ocean with nothing between us and the wide open clear crystal blue waters. Seeing all the pelicans flying past our balcony, and watching the sea life is a fun bonus. The location is very convenient, close to many wonderful restaurants and things to do.
