About Mark D.

Mark moved to Florida in 2005 from the Philadelphia suburbs and currently lives in Pompano Beach. Weekend trips to the Keys led to my purchase of my dream condo in Islamorada. I want everyone who stays in my condo to have as great a time as I do when I am there.

Mark D. purchased this condo in 2008

Why Mark D. chose Islamorada

A relative owned a unit in the Summer Sea complex years ago that I had the pleasure to stay in. When I decided to buy I remembered how close it was to everything.

What makes this condo unique

Amazing views from everywhere in the unit. Huge pool deck with lots of tables with umbrellas, chairs and chaise lounges and very large pool. Sunsets galore from condo unit and common grounds. Quiet complex with 4 person full time staff that keep it meticulously maintained.

Great condo and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here during mini lobster season. The condo was nice and we had a great time swimming in the pool. The view of the sunsets were amazing! The only downside was that we could not use a boat slip if we had brought our boat but that was made clear to us while booking. Very easy to book and Mark was quick to respond to all of my questions. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this great condo.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay but disappointed that you would give me a 3 star review because you couldn't use the marina. You didn't even ask if you could use the marina when you reserved the condo. You only asked if you could Bring a boat 4 days before your arrival date. The condo rules only allow condo owner's boats in the marina. I'm sorry you assumed you could bring your boat and use the private marina because you saw the marina pictured in a photo showing the view from my balcony. My listing does not state that boat slips are available for use or rent. In the future you should ask if boat dockage is allowed or available before booking. Thank you.

The property is excellent, except for the toxic fumes from one of the boats.

  • 4 of 5

Overall had a great time as usual. Owner is fantastic to deal with. Depending on the state of the Canadian dollar next year we may not be back. Our cost in U.S. dollars was $2,495.00 for the Condo, but that cost us $3,435.00 with the exchange rate. We also took a hit in motel costs for 6 nights return travel. If we did not already put a deposit down last year, we would have not returned this year. I feel the U.S. is going to loose quite a bit on the tourism trade in 2018. Very unfortunate as we love our visits there.

Owner's Response: Bill: It's been a pleasure having you as a guest and I hope the Canadian Dollar gains strength to provide a more favorable exchange rate in the future so you'll return to our Summer Sea Condo! I know you have stayed with us for three or four straight years and have always had a 5 Star experience. Mark D.

Great Condo for our Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

Summer Sea condo is in a great location. We made day trips to Key West, kayaking to Indian Key, snorkeling, and a few bike rides. The gated condo is very clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and the pool is excellent!! The condo itself was great for my husband and I. Plenty of space and well-equipped kitchen. This was our first trip to the Keys, and if we ever get to go back I hope we can stay here again!
