Unique Anglers Reef home sleeps 8, UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN VIEWS from inside and out!
About Steve Sepanak
We are beach people who love water views! We've owned oceanfronts and currently live in a bayfront home, but none of our home views can match the ocean views and colors of the Islamorada Flats right outside of our Anglers Reef home - from deep blues and greens to tans and aquas. And our guests always tell us we have the best location and views in the complex - we agree! We also own one of the limited number of boat slips in the Anglers lagoon, so we can offer our guests an optional boat slip if desired. There is direct access to the deep Atlantic via our own channel and also to the Gulf and Backcountry via nearby Snake Creek. We also love to kayak so having a beach for easy launching is great and many vendors will deliver and pick up rental yaks.
Steve Sepanak purchased this House in 2008
Why Steve Sepanak chose Islamorada
Having visited the Keys for a month in 2007, we searched north and south for the right area for a purchase. Islamorada quickly became the obvious choice for many reasons: 1. An easy ride from Miami or Ft Lauderdale airports. 2. Great upscale shopping and many great restaurants just minutes away - some even walkable! 3. Great fishing! With boating access to the ocean plus convenient access to the Gulf and Backcountry via Snake Creek. We specifically chose Anglers Reef for: 1. The great design, beauty and security of this gated complex. 2. The deep private channel through the flats to the ocean. 3. Easy gulf/backcountry access via Snake Creek just a few hundred yards north.. 4. The location of this specific home within Anglers -- on the southeast corner of the development, the closest home to the south beach, and one row back from the pool (close but quieter than overlooking the pool!). 5. The design of the home - the only one of its kind in Anglers - with amazing views from every room. 6. One of the few homes with large wraparound decks - most have small balconies. 6. The convenience of having a 3rd private bedroom - most homes only have two. These are some of the reasons we chose this area, this complex and this particular home. And some of the reasons we know you too will have a great vacation here!
What makes this House unique
Everyone raves about the views from inside and outside the home, and the specific location. They love to relax on our large decks with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise and the flats fisherman, or enjoying a dinner of fresh-caught fish or a cocktail (or two) in the evening. We also have the 3rd bedroom (plus the pullout queen sleeper sofa in the living room) so we can sleep 6 comfortably in bedrooms or 8 total with the sleeper. There is even an electric fireplace in the living room for some unique ambiance on cool mornings or evenings in the winter. There is a fully equipped kitchen with Viking appliances, a full-size washer and dryer, flatscreen TV's in all bedrooms and in the living room, and a quality BBQ grill on the deck with spare propane tank. As a result, we have many repeat guests - so please book your week early!

Angler Reef 140
Great home and location. We have vacationed numerous times times to Islamorada. We usually stayed in a condo on the Gulf side due to boat dockage availability. This complex offers convenient boat slips on the ocean side that can accommodate a 26' center console. The house was spacious and comfortable for 3 adult couples. Most evenings were enjoyed on the large deck or balcony and the great views. The swimming pool was nice and refreshing after a long day of fishing. The grounds were very nicely kept. We used the fish cleaning tables a few days. The table was large and had water and garbage cans there for our use.
The house was furnished for all our needs. Comfortable living room furniture, kitchen bar stools, all the utensils , gas grill, beach towels, bait freezer, Seemed to have everything we needed.
The wives were very happy with this place. The owner provided tons of helpful information for things such as restaurants, fishing advice, and entertainment.
We will definitely consider returning to this place.
We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit. We really appreciate the clarity and ease of finding and getting into the home. It was everthijg promised and more. The dock are up is perfect and easy access to the Atlantic. Totally enjoyed our evening beer on the porch taking in the view. We’ll be back!
So hard to leave Paradise!
This home is amazing! The open layout on the first floor is great for socializing, cooking, etc., but the truly wonderful aspects of this home are the huge wraparound porches on both floors. We spent the majority of our time outside enjoying the view. When I look outside at the dreary weather in Pittsburgh, I replay the video we took of the view from the porch.
We have different couples join us during our two weeks. Some friends, others family, and they all were blown away at how perfect this home is. They all keep asking us when we're going back.
The master bedroom is great with direct access to the upstairs balcony, and the bed is wonderful. I was trying to figure out how I could smuggle the mattress out in my suitcase. LOL. The second bedroom is a little smaller, but very comfortable, too. The third bedroom is a day bed type with a trundle underneath. Great for kids, but my brother did complain a little about climbing out of it. He did say it was comfortable, however, and they enjoyed the direct access to the balcony, too.
We chartered a boat with Chris Dillon with Charisma Sportfishing. He and Sean provided us with a fantastic day, and we had scrumptious fish dinners almost every night. We even caught a 30 lb. cobia that was wonderful. Having the fish freezer out in the carport was very handy.
The pool in the neighborhood is beautiful. The water was warm and the pool design is very inviting, even having seats along the side in the water where you could sit an enjoy your cocktail.
Anything we needed to know about the home and Islamorada was thoroughly covered in the manual that the owners supplied. The kitchen was fully supplied, so it was easy to prepare meals. The washer and dryer are very roomy, but my only problem was that being 4'11", I couldn't reach down into the washing machine to reach the wet laundry. No problem. I made my husband do it.
We would certainly rent this home, again.
Thanks for the kind words Susan - we're glad you and all your guests enjoyed your first trip to Anglers Reef 140. I have to agree with you about the washer -- I'm 6 ft and it is definitely a reach to get clothes out of the bottom of it! I guess that's how they get a full size washer in a stacked unit! Since you had some great fishing success, please send some photos along for our Fishing Portfolio! Hope you'll be back again -- Steve
