About Bob Mitchell
We are Bob and Phyllis Mitchell and have loved the Keys since we moved to Florida in the late 60's. I was an airline pilot for 25 years and at the same time worked as the Marketing Manager for Florida Sportsman Magazine. I am now retired. Phyllis is a retired teacher and professor who now works as a volunteer to a long list of organizations from the local parks to looking out for abandoned or abused children in the Keys. We both are very community involved and are on many Village committees. We love fishing, especially when our grandchildren are visiting. We did many years of offshore fishing and after that many years of backcountry but are now slowing down on that. Our big love is plants and gardening and we love to keep the Villa property native and beautiful as well as our nearby house on an acre. We will be thrilled to give you a tour of the local plants and what we have done with the Villa property and ours.
Bob Mitchell purchased this House in 1984
Why Bob Mitchell chose Islamorada
We have loved the Keys since we moved to Florida in the late 60's. Within a few years we discovered the most delightful Keys hideout in Islamorada that is now the Keys Villa we own and rent. At the time it was a small non-typical motel with just a few units. The Villa is a small house on the property, comfortable for four people, and is free standing on an acre property with a free protected Marina. We keep it clean, constantly up-dated and remodeled, and very comfortable for our guests. The small town laid back atmosphere was very attractive but it took us until 1984 for this villa to come up for sale. There are three other rental accomodations, owned by friends, on the property so it is very quiet. We love it so much that we bought the property two doors north where we now live. We are nearby for your needs but not there unless you need us.
What makes this House unique
The property is so quiet with so few guests that folks naturally socialize. Nightly visits to the bay for the sunset, drinks and snacks become a norm. Maybe half the guests to the property are return people for years. A big hit is the occasional visits by an octopus which darts around changing colors as she passes over the bottom. Years ago one was feeding on the shrimp in my bait bag and when the bag was taken away from her she started putting her tenacles up on the dock looking for more. Soft heart, I fed her a few.

Beautiful, comfortable property at a great location.
The villa is very comfortable and had all the amenities of home. It is kept very clean and Mr. Mitchell is a welcoming host who is available to answer any questions regarding the area or to address any concerns.
We recommend the Mitchell's villas and would love to return to this little "hammock" for another peaceful retreat.
Everything exceeded our expectations
The property was exactly as presented in the pictures and would recommend this property to any couple or one with a couple small children. We hope to come again next year at the same time. The hosts were very gracious and always available for any questions.
Thanks for a nice stay!
Always a pleasure to have such nice guests. It makes providing our Villas worthwhile.
We have been visiting the Florida Keys for over 20 years and I can honestly say that Mitchell's Keys Villa is an outstanding value. The property is lovingly maintained with an impressive attention to every detail - from the extremely comfortable king bed, to the beautiful landscaping and setting. The Villa's kitchen is equipped with new appliances and a dining nook with lovely views of the property. The patio is a few short steps to the waterfront with incredible sunsets, boat basin and more. We would strongly recommend these properties to anyone seeking an affordable, stress-free vacation!
What a wonderful find!
This place is awesome. Perfect location, perfect place to watch the sunset every night, secluded but close to everything. You will not be disappointed.
We work hard to make the guests stay a trip they will remember. Their satisfaction makes it all worthwhile. Bob and Phyllis
Wonderful family vacation!
We had an incredible week at Mitchell's Keys Villa. Stayed with our two sons (12 & 14) and enjoyed fishing, snorkeling and chilling out at this oasis in Islamorada. Thanks to Bob & Phyllis for an exceptionally clean and comfortable place to stay. We will be back!
Always fun to host people who know how to have a good time. We are there for our guests in anyway we can help make their vacation. And we love having so many folks return year after year. Bob and Phyllis
