Great deep dockage and quick access to bay and ocean!!!

Just a short walk away from wholesale stone crabs and lobster! Beer also!

Beach & Bay Bungalow. This home has it all.

New HD 65" television and high speed wireless interntet included. All bedrooms have flat screen television.

Spectacular long water views from inside and out of this secluded property! The only thing more beautiful than the view is the large dock. The dockage is deep and can accommodate large deep draft boats. There is plenty of room for multiple boats. Electric, water and light are conveniently located at the dock.

The home is located in the middle of a large private peninsula and is well hidden from view from any road.

The mile long beach is just across from the front entry gate. The property has a gated 450 foot driveway just off the middle of Sea Oats Beach. The dock is right out the back door. The home is on the bayside and very close to Channel five and Indian Key channel. It is all very private.

One enters this paradise through a gate from US-1 right across from one of the best wade fishing flats (bone fish, tarpon, and snook) and best beaches in all the Keys (Sea Oats Beach). Private drive leads to your secluded upscale paradise.

The home has a round mahogany door that is your entry to a comfortable and open 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen opens up to the dining and living area where there is a beautiful coral wall with flat screen TV for you to enjoy. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions.

One of the most wonderful features of the home is an oversized vaulted ceiling screened porch with excellent open water views from 2 sides and a tropical garden view from the third side. See the sparkling clear water from a great vantage point while enjoying cocktails with your friends. Sit back . . . relax . . . and breathe in the beauty of the warm ocean breeze as you await the arrival of a fresh catch for the evening's dinner. When the boat arrives the passengers may take a dip in the clean water to cool off and can shower as they step out of the water onto dry land.

The fishing is phenomenal in this area - both bay and ocean are instant access. The bridges and reefs are very close by. Needless to say, the options are endless. The home has several balconies and sitting areas in the lush tropical landscaped front yard and overlooking the water in the back.

The sleeping accommodations should easily meet your needs - there is a king in the master. The master has a private balcony with an open water view and jetted Jacuzzi tub. One of the guest bedrooms has 2 queen size beds and is perfect for a family. The other has a queen size bed. All bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TV's.

You will absolutely love this charming home that captures the spirit of the Keys. It is a place that will create many wonderful memories for you, your family and friends. We welcome you to our home. Stay for a month, stay for six months! You won't want to leave!

Chris purchased this house in 2008

Why Chris chose Islamorada

We fell in love with this spot because the views are unbelievable. Also the location provides easy access to all our favorite spots for fishing, diving, swimming and dinning! Can't be beat.

What makes this house unique

The charm of this home is its privacy, great dockage, beautiful views, crystal clear deep water and the beach out the front gate. Unassuming relaxed elegance.

So much nature right outside the home. Luxury inside and natural beauty outside.

Just a great place to have an extended stay of 28 days or more.

Fantastic Keys Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Chris's house is clean, well maintained and offers plenty of space including a great screened in porch. We fished from the dock each morning and caught sharks, a stingray and watched a manatee. Chris was very helpful and had completed some repairs after the hurricane. It appeared the Keys fared better than the news channels portrayed. I would recommend his place to anyone and appreciate his excellent customer service. Our group rented a fishing charter and traveled to Key West and had a great time there as well.

Family Vacation Spring 2017

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed here and we all had a wonderful vacation. The house is gorgeous and very clean and comfortable. We all loved the outdoor space porch and tiki hut to enjoy the breeze and beautiful scenery. We also all caught plenty of fish right off the dock out back. We rented a deck boat for 2 days and were able to bring it to the house and docked it there for the second day. That was a convenience we enjoyed. The neighborhood is quite and well kept. Everything is in good working order at the house and Chris was always very prompt in answering emails or phone calls when I was inquiring about the rental. Another plus is that there are plenty of dishes, cooking utensils, and pots/pans in the kitchen for cooking and meal times. We all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and are hopeful to have another family vacation there next year!

Great Location and Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here over Winter Break and had a great time. The house is beautiful and in a lovely spot, well away from the road. Very private and felt like we had our own oasis during our stay. The canal the home is located on is clean and gorgeous with easy access out to the Gulf/Bay side. My kids kayaked and paddle boarded everyday and if we had our snorkel gear, they would have done that as well. Easy access to the canal and there is a dock to fish off or park your boat if you have one. Lots of wildlife to see. Sea Oats beach across the road isn't the best beach for playing in as it is very mucky but it is good for collecting shells and putting kayaks into but don't try wading. The home is as described and Chris was prompt in answering all my questions. Had a great time and we look forward to returning!

wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

74864 Overseas Hwy, Islamorada Village of Islands, FL, 33036, United States (195489)

This home was exactly as described-spacious, private, beautifully situated with long views down the water way. It was unseasonable cool for our time is Islamorada, but we still enjoyed several afternoons sitting on the screen porch, drinking rum punch, and completely relaxing. This home is conveniently located within minutes of several excellent eating places. We experienced good meals at Lazydays, at the Green Turtle, and at Chef Michaels-I would highly recommend all of them. However, for dining in, Mr. Lobster is right up the road with excellent fresh seafood and stone crab especially! Thanks, Chris, for sharing your lovely home with us.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this wonderful house June 2014. We had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed everything about the house. We have rented from Chris for several years , he is always quick to respond and pays attention to details. The pictures of this house can't begin to describe how beautiful it really is. The view from the dock is spectacular we enjoyed drinking coffee each morning while sitting on the dock. The neighborhood manatee visited us and stayed for a while. My son enjoyed snorkling around the dock and saw some amazing tropical fish. The house has plenty of room to spread out and relax. The screened porch is equiped with celing fans and very comfortable for family game nights. I would highly recommend this property. My family and I are already planning our trip for next summer.

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent October here and it was great. Very quiet and set way back off the highway so we heard nothing. We spent almost the entire time out on the giant screened in porch where we ate all our meals enjoying a view of nothing but the water and lush vegetation.

While fishing off the dock, we were visited several times by a pair of manatees that gently swam up to the dock while on their way to dinner. Fishing was exciting. We suggest you use steel leaders since we had a lot of tackle ripped off in big strikes.

This property had everything we needed. All we needed was are own food and we were set. Refrigerator is almost new and provided all the ice we needed.

This is a perfect get away for adults or families who love to fish.
