Experience the euphoric ambiance of a tropical sunrise from this fully renovated and continuously modernized, beautifully decorated condominium, with ocean view located at Ocean Pointe Suites, Tavernier, Florida - A 24-hour, 7 days-a-week gated and secure community!

If you are looking for the perfect place to relax and unwind in the tropical ambiance, this is it!

This unit provides you a master bedroom with a new (as of Aug 2016) king-size bed set, a slider to a walkout balcony with ocean view, a recently (Aug 2016) installed walk-in shower and all new tiling for both bedroom and bath areas, closet space, and a 28” flat panel color TV w/DVD/CD player.

A Yamaha MCR-232 Mini-Audio System was recently added, providing iPad, iPhone & iPod docking/connection hookup. Kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, utensils, blender, toaster-oven, and coffee maker. All linens and towels are included.

Condo provides a secure, wireless, WIFI connection at NO additional cost.

About James G. Bendick

We've been happily married since 1989, with one (1) Daughter to carry on our heritage. Our jobs and associated line of work are exciting, as between us we cover engineering, aviation and interior design. Our long term plans are to eventually retire to the Keys with our Condo being our primary residence. As such, we are always renovating and updating our Condo to include painting and new appliances to reflect the importance of our commitment to keeping our Condo in superior condition and beautifully decorated to reflect the Keys ambiance.

James G. Bendick purchased this condo in 2007

Why James G. Bendick chose Tavernier

My Parents owned at Ocean Pointe in the 90s and after many trips there when our Daughter was in her early years, we fell in love with the Property and vowed that one day we would own there……well, in the early Summer in 2007, we followed through with our promise to each other and purchased our Condo at Ocean Pointe.

What makes this condo unique

Ocean View…..Ocean View…...Ocean View!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here many times in other units and this one by far has been the nicest. Freshly renovated and super clean.

Beautiful, well furnished unit in a pretty spot on the Keys

  • 4 of 5

The unit was well maintained and very nicely furnished. Thhe owners are very gracious and welcoming. We were there for a wedding and had terrible weather (Tropical Storm Alberto) so didn’t get to really experience the property (pool,etc.) or take advantage of the beauty of the surroundings and view. Would definitely go back if travels take us to the Keys.

I rated it a 4 out of 5 due to the weather which had a “dampening” impact on the stay.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, very well maintained. The condo was clean and updated. The pool's atmosphere was very relaxing and every guest was friendly. The only downside was that whoever worked one the property started the work too early for us to sleep in and relax in the morning. It started to get pretty loud and noisy before 8 am.

We had a lovely experience! The unit is freshly renovated after Irma. All the repairs to the complex are coming along nicely. Amazing pool and poolside bar. Owner kept good communication with us throughout and made sure we were satisfied. Very positive experience. Would come back again!
