Quiet, peaceful and very comfortable getaway

  • 5 of 5

You won't be sorry - a truly comfortable and beautiful home and setting. Quiet and out of the (relative) hustle and bustle of Islamorada, yet not far away from anything and everything in the Middle Keys. Between the lazy canals and watching occasional boat traffic to the very close and unique private beach (this is the Keys, not Miami, after all), you and your family will not regret choosing this property. It has an authentic Keys family feel (we have had family ties to the Keys for decades), not pretentious and has the kind of relaxing vibe for which Islamorada is appreciated. The owner is very communicative, incredibly hospitable and we could not recommend more highly.

Perfect stay for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our week at Sandy’s Keys house. The location is brilliant with a beautiful beach just 5 minutes walk away. The property was clean and comfotrable and communication from Sandy from start to finish was fantastic, and she went to extra lengths to make our visit possible as the site was not very supportive of overseas travellers in terms of payment! Thanks for a great stay

The Perfect Spot In Islamorada

  • 5 of 5

Three of my friends and my friend's son and girlfriend and I spent a week at “Sandy's Place”, and it was wonderful. Even though it was only a month after the hurricane hit, Sandy had everything back in order, clean and ready for use. Because there is a separate apartment downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs, everyone had enough privacy. But thanks to the spacious dining rooms, it was nice to be able to eat our meals together. And the cooks had no trouble finding everything they needed in the well equipped kitchens. It was hard for us to tear ourselves away to eat out two nights at some of the great restaurants nearby. Relaxing in the water at the nearby beach during the day and having cocktails on the screened in porch overlooking the canals at night also didn't hurt to make our week so enjoyable. We're already planning our trip for next year, and can't wait to get back to the best place in Islamorada.

We are relatives of one of Sandy's friends and we had a fabulous Labor Day at her home. The house is spacious and had lots of room for our large group. The beach was fantastic. Beautiful water and sunsets!! We will be back next year for sure!

Best week ever

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Sandy's Retreat. It was the perfect place for 4 generations of my family to spend some time together. We all enjoyed going out to eat and shopping and site seeing but, my favorite part of the time was spent in the back yard with my family and at the beautiful beach at the end of the street. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We are all looking forward to coming again next year. Come on 2018 and Thank You Sandy

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy was very professional and extremely helpful leading up to the trip and the house did not disappoint. It is in a great location with canal access that allowed us to explore much of the surrounding waters with ease. Everything in the house was as advertised and overall in great condition. We really had no complaints at all and if we ever make it back down, we'd definitely look to stay here again.
