  • Best Vacation Ever!!!

    "We vacationed in this home with our two kids and my husband's brother and sister in-law. We absolutely love the house! The kids loved the TV Room, where they could relax and watch a movie after a long day of boating. My sister-in-law and I love the state-of-the art kitchen. The Master BR has magnificent views from all windows - it is spacious and the closet could be another bedroom! Our agent was responsive to us and very accommodating. When you rent a vacation home you want a home that is as good or better than where you live. Shangria La was everything we could ask for. The dock is great and the water depth perfect for our 25 ft boat. We've already booked this home for next year."

  • PERFECT location DIRECTLY ON the beach!

    "I have used VRBO and read reviews and since you are too I can tell you this is a perfect condo with a fantastic location. I may be partial to keys and seeing the sunrise from bed, seeing the beach while preparing food in a well stocked kitchen, having dinner seeing the beach and reading and watching TV seeing the beach. The view from the screened in balcony is so picture perfect, it looks like a postcard. If you don't know the keys, this condo is on one of the best beaches in the entire keys besides maybe the state parks! Did I mention not being surrounded by tall condos? There is NO street noise, and hardly any noise at all except for some birds and a boat now and then. There are so many things to do within a 10 minute drive we had to pick and choose. We snorkled, went to Hawk's Quay to see dolphins for free, strolled in the shallow ocean in Long Key State Park, went to the movie theatre and new small aquarium, ate dinner at Sharkey's, Castaways, Sunset Grill to name a few. From floating in the pool, you see the ocean! The pool was heated so even in the low 70's we swam everyday....except for the day we went to Key West. The condo's owners use their place often so it really feels you are in someone's comfortable home. If you rent often, you will feel the delightful difference here. The sheets and towels and furnishings all match and are comfortable. We had a sink leak and it was taken care of within an hour with one short phone call. The owners really are generous in what they share! Great bikes and kayaks and all the fishing gear and stuff you need for ocean fun like towels, chairs and toys are all there for your use. I will be back!!!"

  • "AWESOME" ONCE AGAIN!!

    "Just returned from our 2nd 2 week vacation at ISLAND TRADER..loved every minute of it once again. (See previous review)..the view is still absolutely gorgeous!! The outdoor space has been enhanced by a new patio table and 6 chairs under the Tiki-hut. We had gorgeous weather so all our time was spent outdoors...sunning, swimming, fishing, b'queing, relaxing and enjoying. The house has all you need for a great vacation...cold a/c, comfortable bed in master bedroom, well equipped kitchen..wish I could post photo's for all to enjoy. The photo's on the site are accurate, except now there is a new table and chairs under the Tiki and some new landscaping in the back..very nice!!. The area is very quiet..no neighbors on either side in May. Publix and a K-mart are close..also a Walgreen's with a Liquor store at the top of the street. Savannah's is still there for delicious sweets..the Key Lime pie is a must. Fish Tales has fresh fish and a great meat selection...filet and lobster!! Jackie is a delight to work with and the owner Bill is just a phone call away. Island Trader comes highly recommended for a low key wonderfully relaxing vacation. We have rebooked for 2015 and counting the days to our return..Thank you Jackie..also a big Thanks to Doug who keeps the front and back areas so neat and clean..much appreciated !! Try it..you will like it......"
