About the Property

3 Bed/3 Bath, 1 Private Beach, 2.5 Acres of Serenity

Relax in Islamorada, Florida Keys... 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World.'

If you are looking for gold sinks, with gold fixtures, this is not the place for you! We are a "rustic" retreat where the relaxed life of yesteryear can be enjoyed. Our specialty is providing you and your family with the serene background needed to enjoy monthly holidays away from the hustle and bustle of daily routine.

If you would like to experience the charm of the Florida Key's the way they were in the 40's and 50's this is the spot. When here, you will step back in time to the natural way the Keys were, when Henry Flagler built his railroad and folks walked out their front door to enjoy their own Beach and uninterrupted Ocean View.

Cottage A has two bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen) and one full bath with a complete kitchenette and outside patio adjacent to the Queen bedroom. Cottage B is a studio with a king bed, bathroom (with shower), mini refrigerator and its own private patio just steps away from the ocean.

You can relax in one of the hammocks under the coconut trees on a beautiful natural white sand beach. Sip a cocktail, cool down and relax in the shallow drinking pool. Enjoy the beautiful native peacocks that have lived in the area for over 60 years. Walk out, above the ocean along your 230 foot pier. There is docking for four large yachts and a private boat basin for smaller boats.

Manatees are regular visitors here along with tarpon, mangrove snappers, parrot fish, small rays, and other native fish species swimming in the waters off our dock. Beautiful tropical vegetation, shore birds, and other marine life are all around you. You will cherish the memories of your stay in this lush Island Paradise.

Manager info

About: I have lived in the Keys since 1956 and this is the Island Paradise that I grew up in, and 'used to be everywhere' in the Keys before people knocked the cottages down, bulldozed the trees and vegetation to build concrete fortresses.

Why Islamorada, FL, USA:
Purchased this property over thirty years ago (30) in order to preserve what the Keys meant to me and grateful now to be able to share a bit of my paradise with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The rustle of the palm leaves in the breeze and the beautiful view of the ocean and the sounds of the wildlife. Privacy and seclusion which results in a peaceful relaxed state of mind where you can forget the rest of the world exists.
