Great place.

  • 5 of 5

Ann was a pleasure to work with. We've been to Islamorada several times, but this was our first time in Manatee Bay. Great location, beautiful sunsets, kayaking from the beach area and a very comfortable place to stay for the week. We traveled with my parents and my two kids with no issues as far as space. The kitchen had everything necessary plus additional spices and such. The bathrooms had some necessities stocked as well. Overall a great space, close to all the fun in Islamorada. Highly recommended. Thanks Ann.

Great Condo! Would love to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and had a great time! The amenities were great and very impressive! I loved that we had access to a kayak! The condo is very nice and was a great home base for our trip at the end of the day to relax and recharge. I would definitely stay her again.

Very poor. I cannot give it any stars but the website insists that that I do

On arrival there was a smell in the property that indicated it had not been used for some time.

It certainly did not match its description. The settee was dirty, soiled and smelly making it unusable and a carpet on the floor was just disgusting. Curtains and other soft furnishings have not been cleaned in a long time and added to the smell. The kitchen left a lot to be desired and in my view unusable. The whole apartment was dark and gloomy and lights,at least those that worked, had to be left on during the day. There was no window covering alongside the shower that meant passersby could see in and the advertised wifi just does not work.The balcony area provides an outside sitting area but there you are surrounded by boats and rusty trailers using up car parking spaces but worst of all a grassed area that was constantly used as a dog toilet. Horrible. We had booked for four weeks but one morning woke up covered in bed bug bites so it was time to go. We just left and booked in to a hotel ,all at additional cost, for the rest of our stay in the keys which was mainly spent applying medication to our bites in an attempt to clear them up. I cannot believe there are such glowing reviews given to this place and have to wonder who on earth wrote them.I assumed I was renting off a private owner but there were documents in the property that related to a local rental agency who I was unaware of.

We have taken holidays in this area for a number of years and know a lot of locals. They were horrified at our experience and spent time apologizing to us trying to make us feel better.

To sum up, an appalling property. Dark dingy unclean and depressing and at a price that is a total rip off for what you get. Would I return? not in a million years.

Owner's Response: Dear future renters reading this review: My name is Annie Davis and I am the owner of Manatee Bay. I believe this guest may have my property confused with another. Please note the discrepancies in his review based on the facts. 1. I never received any correspondence from this guest during his stay. We would have immediately addressed any concerns. It is very easy to reach me. 2. No carpet in the unit.(except small Pottery Barn sisal doormat) 3. Our previous guests checked out the morning this guest arrived. I contacted them, and everything was perfect when they left. 4. I am the owner of the condo. I have no other rental agency renting for me. 5. We don't have a settee in the unit. 6. Not only do I have high speed internet in the unit, I also have back up internet. 7. The condo was completely remodeled, including the kitchen, bathrooms, ceilings, new wood flooring and drywall, last year. ALL furnishings are brand new included the Pottery Barn window treatments. Even the A/C and hot water heater are new. 8. This unit is cleaned thoroughly after each guest. 9. After receiving this review, my husband and I drove down to inspect the unit to find everything clean and in working order. We are taking this guests claims seriously and have reached out to him for documentation with no response from him. As future renters, we invite you to see for yourselves our little slice of paradise. If you need anything during your trip, I am only a phone call or email away!

UH-MAZ-ING~you have to go!

  • 5 of 5

When we first started looking for a place in the Keys we had no idea where to even start. Luckily we happened upon Annie's place! There were 6 of us (4 adults, 2 teens) so I needed something roomy enough that we wouldn't trip over each all day, especially for a 10-day vacation! This little gem was perfect! It is so comfortable and homey the second you walk in. The decor is beachy-cool and modern. The beds are SUPER comfortable (and I am a princess and the pea kind of girl!). Annie was so helpful getting us set up with good places to eat (Marker 88 is an absolute MUST for sunsets and cocktails and it's walking distance up the road). The pool area is quiet but we never felt like were bothering anyone. There are quite a few older residents, so I was a little leery with 2 teenagers, but no one ever gave us dirty looks! LOL The kitchen is well equipped, we had all the pots and pans we needed, plastic wine glasses, spices in the cupboard, coffee maker, toaster, etc. Being from SoCal, we are spoiled with our beaches. We learned soon that there aren't really any swimming beaches in the Keys. You really need to be on a boat in order to go in the ocean. We rented a boat from the place by Island Grill and spent the day going from the Ocean to the Gulf. Highly recommended! Maybe because it was December, there were jellyfish aplenty in the bay out side our unit. No swimming happening there! But none of that matters. We would walk out to the point and watch the sunset. There's a fire pit too so get some firewood when you go to Winn Dixie! We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation!
