  • Sandy's Retreat Excellent

    "Rented Sandy's Retreat in part to attend a friend's wedding and in part to have a much overdo vacation. Invited many friends who came and went during the week. Speaking with everyone who visited, everyone was very, very pleased with the property and the location. They all had a blast!!! That said, I enjoyed the time away at the Retreat that did not even look at my cell for 5 days. It is nicely located on a canal to bring and dock your boat. The beach is only a couple of blocks away. It was, honestly, one of the best vacations I have had in many a years. Not to mention that very reasonably priced for the size. The house, itself, was best suited for my purpose with a little 1 bedroom getaway downstairs and the bigger unit upstairs. It was clean and well provided as to linens, towels, appliances (ie coffee makers - HA HA!), etc. The only thing needed is your clothes and your food (maybe some adult beverages). Could not have been more pleased with the entire house and its setup. I would most definitely recommend the place for anyone looking for the Keys experience. I am definitely, no I should say, our group is definitely looking at doing this again during 2015. The last, and very important feature, is the owner was nothing but a pleasure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!"

  • BB from Indiana

    "We came with our daughter, her husband, a 4 month old baby, and their 2 kids 8 and 11 to spend quality family time together. Beautiful house with all the amenities. It was a real adventure. The kids fished right off the dock and loved the pool. We rented 2 double kayaks so were able to go out to the ocean, travel around the jetty, and access the beach where we did some great snorkeling. Paddling around the canal was great as well. Lots of nice wildlife right off the back dock - moray eels in the wall, needle fish, sharks, barracudas, and manatees visited every day. The kitchen was well stocked with nice pots and pans and great sharp knives. Spent a lot of time on the lovely screened-in porch and ate all our meals out there. Even though the highway was close, it was quiet at the house. We just loved the place."

  • Great Venue for families or Corporate Event

    "We rented all for houses for a Team meeting. The accommodations are clean, well serviced and maintained. We used the outdoor kitchen areas frequently and enjoyed the pool and water areas during our down time. Very convenient to Miami airport and local activities."

  • Best vacation!

    "Everyone in our group of 17 agreed that this was the best vacation ever! The north house, apartment, infinity pool, and grounds exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was very well stocked and the ice machine was a great bonus! Everything was clean and organized. The teenagers as well as our 19 month old found many places to play and explore and there were plenty of toys for the pool or sand. Safety was a concern for our young grandson but the infinity pool was not accessible for him due to a tall rail and gates and the there was only one open area on the wrap around porch for him to reach the beach. The gates to the pool can be kept open if safety is not an issue. The pool guy did an awesome job keeping the water clear and clean and there was no chemical smell which was much appreciated! Plenty of comfortable seating in the house as well as on the massive porch overlooking the ocean gave our large group space to gather for relaxing or playing games. There are also many beach chairs and a hammock. The impressive fish tank was fascinating to watch as the fish and other creatures are active at different times of day. There was sufficient space in the bedrooms as well as large closets and private bathrooms; except the cabana room does not have a closet. There are comfortable queen beds in all the rooms except the master (king) and the twin trundles upstairs. Lisa, the property manager was very friendly and very accessible for questions or issues or just to talk to, and the pool guy was great as well! The rental company was very friendly and easy to work with and provided a lot of information to help us prepare for the trip. I could not find anything to complain about which my family would say is unusual for me! The beach is rocky along the edge of the water and more natural than a public beach groomed for swimmers. You will need water shoes! The ocean stays shallow for quite a way out making it easy and less scary for inexperienced ocean kayakers. If you are visiting the Keys for the first time, do some research on the area you choose to stay in for activities and shopping. There is plenty to do but not always easy or quick to find just by driving around. There can be heavy traffic on the main road which will slow down your travel during peak seasons. If you are like me and just want to relax in a beautiful, private, peaceful, spacious setting, then you will never want to leave Island Palms Estate! We look forward to a return trip!"
