Islamorada Florida is known as the Sports Fishing Capital of the Florida Keys. “Sunrise Haven,” is half way between Key West and mainland Florida. Our Atlantic Ocean beach front condo is located near the heart of Islamorada at Mile Marker 80.6 on the Old Highway on Upper Matecumbe Key. Islamorada has the best fishing, scuba diving and shopping in the Keys. We provide a double kayak and two adult bicycles. The Overseas Highway, US-1, follows Henry Flagler’s famous railroad to Key West that was destroyed in the deadly Labor Day hurricane of 1935. Miami International Airport is an 85 minute drive. Fort Lauderdale International Airport is a 2 hour drive. From Sunrise Haven a visit to Key West is an easy 80 mile, 90 minute drive. “Downtown Islamorada” is home to a number of great restaurants for casual waterside dining or more upscale seafood, chop or steak dinners. You can walk to the Midway Cafe for breakfast or the famous Green Turtle Inn and Restaurant for lunch and/or dinner. Fishing charters and scuba diving are close by.

Whether you are coming to the Keys for a relaxing, restful break from cold weather, to catch lobster and stone crabs, to go scuba diving, to spend your time fishing the back country for snook, redfish, bonefish and tarpon or to go off shore fishing for dolphin, wahoo, snapper and grouper, Sunrise Haven in Islamorada can be your comfortable home away from home. The panoramic sunrises are beautiful. Our Islamorada vacation rental license number is VR-124.

About Steven and Kathy

We were born and grew up in Southern California. We were very fortunate to enjoy both mountain, river and oceanside activities. We now live in the Florida Keys. We love sunrises and sunsets. Our goal was to be able to retire with a mountain home and a oceanside home. 'Sunrise Haven' is one of our Islamorada residences with spectacular sunrise views. We also have other Islamorada vacation rental properties. "Sunset Reef," VRBO 809744 and "Snapper House" in Bonefish Bay, VRBO 745651. Both are bay side with great sunset views. We also have our Deer Valley mountain vacation rental home, 'Sunset Lodge,' VRBO 206330, with fantastic sunset views. We are blessed in life with great family and good friends. The photo, taken in front of our Contender, shows the result of another day on the water and the freshest fish for dinner.

Steven and Kathy purchased this condo in 2017

Why Steven and Kathy chose Islamorada

We have lived in the South Florida area since 1977. We raised our two children and spent our careers here. We have always enjoyed fishing, lobstering, sailing, motor boating and water sports activities since our youth in Southern California. We purchased our first Florida Keys property in Islamorada in 1994. There are many activities to see and do in the Keys. The location is perfect for outdoor minded people like us.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the Florida Keys when we arrived in the area in 1977. When our children were young we sailed the Keys island chain and the Bahamas in our Morgan Out Island. Now we enjoy motor boating activities from off shore fishing to back country fishing to lobstering. We enjoy kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling off of the shoreline to catch lobster for dinner and easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay and the Everglades for fishing. The Maison Matecumbe location allows for all kinds of water sports activities. But Maison Matecumbe is a very quiet, private location to relax. Some of our guests choose to not leave the the complex. There are the beach hammocks, shaded lounges and the pool area for relaxing and to read a good book while enjoying the fabulous ocean views. A great way to start the day is with your coffee or tea watching the sunrise walking the beach. In the evenings we like the beach propane fire pit. The pool has islands made for lounges and umbrellas. There are many ways to relax at Sunrise Haven. If you are interested in leaving Maison Matecumbe, downtown Islamorada is a minute away with many fine restaurants, shopping, art galleries and the Bass Pro Shops - World Wide Sportsman facility and marina.

Sunrise Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely fantastic. The accommodation was first class with all the amenities that we needed. We were greeted by Geoff Holmes the owners son, who gave us lots of information on the property and the area in which we were staying. Geoff made us feel at ease and answered all of our questions about the water to swim in and things that were on our minds. It was great to for them share their Kyacks, paddleboards and Bikes.

Everything in the Condo was written out in a detailed book explaining everything in great detail, this is really helpful when everything is new to you. It included details about places to visit, Restaurants etc.

The pool was clean and well kept, as well as the surrounding area. Our teenage children thoroughly enjoyed the stay, we had lots of room, and the Condo was so comfortable.

Islamorada was excellent with plenty of Supermarkets, Restaurants and places to visit. We went to Lazy days for a meal, that Steven had recommended and it was truly the best meal of our whole holiday! The fish was fantastic!

Everything in the Condo was in great working order and we really could not fault anything. We thank Steven, Kathy and Geoff for a memorable stay in the Florida Keys

and would highly recommend this area and Condo to our friends and relatives.

Thank you very much and kind regards from Phillip, Lisa, Bradley, Charlie and Eva xx

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Steve and Kathy's place. The condo was perfect and very spacious. They have everything you need. We loved this place because they allowed us to bring our 5th member of our family, our dog Moose. They are so centrally located. All of the restaurants are a walk away, and My husband was able to keep his boat at the marina right across the highway. We would definitely stay here again. Thumbs up!

Awesome waterfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the first week of April 2018 and couldn't have asked for a better living situation. The condo was in excellent condition, well furnished, and very comfortable for the four of us, but could easily accommodate the stated maximum occupancy. The location was also perfect for our fishing and entertainment needs. I look forward to returning in the future!

Beautiful condo in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was AMAZING. It was a perfect fit for our large family. From the top of the line amenities, to the outdoor space, it was absolutely perfect. The central location made it pegect for all our favorite Keys activities and dining spots. Having access to bikes, sand toys and kayaks was a great perk. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone!!!

Fabulous stay. Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 (grandparents, parents and 4 young kids) stayed here the week before Christmas 2017. The home is beautiful and well appointed w nice furniture, comfortable beds and upgraded linens. The pool and beach areas provided countless hrs of entertainment for our crew. Steve and Kathy were kind and generous in loaning us kayaks, SUPs and bikes so we could really experience the beauty arouund us. We only had one small issue during our stay and it was attended to and resolved within an hr. We had a delightful stay and will definitely look for this rental when we return to the keys.

You may not want to leave the Maison Matecumbe property but there are a number of very good restaurants and other fun activities in the Islamorada area. The full moon party at Morada Bay is very nice. Back country fishing guides are available at near by marinas for fishing in the back country of the Everglades and Flamingo areas. Great offshore fishing is also available from marinas in Islamorada. We can provide references for all of your fishing and/or scuba diving wishes. We provide a Welcome Packet and an in-house binder with all the information you need to have a fabulous vacation in the Florida Keys. There are area brochures in Sunrise Haven. Key West is a great day trip. The Marathon Turtle Hospital is an incredibly fun and educational experience, we highly recommend it. The Aquarium Encounter in Marathon is a new hands on interactive activity. In Islamorada or Marathon you can swim with dolphins or just stand in knee deep water to touch and “kiss,” it is great fun. There is a bicycling and walking path along Overseas Highway. Going south on to Lower Matecumbe Key is Robbie's Marina, where you MUST feed the tarpon, the Islamorada Tennis Club and Anne’s Beach. Headed north from Sunrise Haven is all of the downtown area of Islamorada. At Robbie's Marina you can also rent boats, jet skis, kayaks, SUPs and/or book a charter boat. You can also reserve a kayaking excursion to Indian Key State Park or transportation to Lignumvitae Key State Park. Bud and Mary's Marina at the south end of Upper Matecumbe Key has a large charter boat fleet to handle your fishing needs.
