Why Bobby chose Islamorada

It is very hard to find a home in the keys that has everything we wanted. Ocean front, big pool (not a dipping pool),deep water dock (hard to find with direct oceanfront properties, in this location close to everything. We finally found it with this property.

What makes this house unique

Deep water canal on open water, open layout, screen porch as well as open patio, oversized pool, very nicely decorated, and CLEAN!

What a magical place!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy to hear that your beautiful home survived the hurricane! The views from the patio, pool and dock are breathtaking, we enjoyed having our coffee every morning overlooking the ocean. Very clean and your decorating complements the outside setting. We are looking forward to re-booking with you next summer!

Owner's Response: Kelly Thank you so much for the wonderful review and yes we are grateful to have survived the storm. We definitely have some debris cleanup but overall we are very lucky. I'll make sure to let my wife know about the compliments regarding decorating as she spends a lot of time trying to make it special and nice for everyone. The cleaning crew will also be pleased, as we have use them for many years and they do a fantastic job. Thank you again for the wonderful review and look forward to having you next summer. Bobby

Nice home

  • 3 of 5

Upon arriving to the house it appears that the house is already occupied due to the owner storing a boat and vehicle in the front parking area and under the house. The vehicle and boat are well out of the way and allow for plenty of parking for tenants even with their own boat on a trailer. It was just a little confusing as we were not aware of owner storing anything in the parking area.

When we arrived there was also a second boat at the residence, this one was in the water moored to the dock in the rear of the house. Owner was notified immediately and he began to investigate. He returned our call promptly to inform us that the boat was a rental left from the previous tenants. The rental company, Bump and Jump boat rentals, was supposed to have already picked up the boat. We attempted to contact Bump and Jump multiple times to remove this boat from the dock that we were planning to use for our own boat. I guess they didn't see the need to answer the phone. Previous tenants also left half full bait buckets with dead bait in them next to the downstairs refrigerator creating a serious odor around the entire back area of the house. We moved the bait buckets to the rental boat and moved the rental boat across the canal to an empty dock as instructed by the owner.

The interior of the house is well outfitted and tastefully decorated. Our only complaint with the interior was the condition of the cookware in the kitchen, time for new skillets/pots and pans. We ended up using cookware from our boat in the kitchen.

The grill on the lower level was well below expectations. Electrical outlets on the dock did not work.

We did have a constant shortage of refrigerator space due to the condition/smell of the outdoor fridge. I understand it is a bait fridge, but a second fridge for adult beverages and such would be very beneficial on the lower level.

The house is located in a great area for boating/fishing and local restaurants. There is a large ice vending machine just outside the neighborhood. A major plus for us was the amount of parking to accommodate a trailer.

Owner's Response: Alicia, Thank you so much for the review I'm glad you guys had a great stay. I'm sorry that the previous guests didn't have their boat removed when they were supposed to. I have never in 15+ years had someone leave a boat behind, but luckily it was taken away a few hours later. Also having a 70 foot dock shouldn't have interfered with both being there a few hours. Again I am sorry that the previous tenants left some bait behind, our cleaning crew is amazing and usually would have taking care of that but must have missed it. I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but we have many different sets of pots and pans. There are even more pots and pans under the Lazy Susan not sure if you missed those? We do replace the pots and pans several times throughout the year as needed. If you would have let me know during your stay that some of them needed replaced, I would've had them replaced immediately. As you mentioned in your review, there is plenty of parking for multiple cars and trailers even with our boat on the side of property. Not quite sure what the concern was, as you mentioned in your review that it was a "major plus" to have all the space for your multiple cars and trailers?? Overall, sounds like you guys had a really nice time and enjoyed the house and location. It's unfortunate that the previous guests boat/bait left behind, and other minor concerns affected us as we have never received anything less than five stars, let alone 3. Thank you again and glad you guys had a great time.

Vacation in Keys -2017

  • 5 of 5

I have lived in Florida for 38 years and have enjoyed MANY vacation spots while living here but none of them have compared to my stay, with friends from South Africa, in this vacation home in the Florida Keys. It was clean, private, and I felt like I was actually in someone's home rather than a rental destination where new people rotate through each week. The reservation was flawless, the owners quickly responded to questions I had - the home is spacious and beautiful with a glorious view no matter the weather. The Pool and screened in porch were additional drawing points. I HIGHLY recommend this home if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation - I will definitely be going back.....thank you for opening your dream home up to others....It is my new "Favorite place.:-)

Very enjoyable stay here in Tavernier

  • 5 of 5

You need to read all the reviews. I can't add much to them. The pictures of the property are exactly what the property looks like and all the reviews are accurate. The house is very comfortable and we have really enjoyed our stay. After 8 weeks of great weather we have to drive home tomorrow. We have already booked for next Jan and Feb.

Abel takes great care of the pool and the grounds are very well maintained. We rode bikes through every neighborhood 5 mile north and 5 south and this house is in one of the nicest. It is quiet and accessible to everything. Bobby is really good to work with.

Owner's Response: Cathy, I can not thank you enough for such a wonderful and great review. We try very hard to make the home as comfortable and clean as possible. The crew we have chosen have been with us for many, many years and they do a great job, as you saw. I also agree that the home is in a great and convenient location. We have owned 3 other homes in the Keys in the past 17 years, they were all great and had something special about them, but they were never perfect!! They were either far from the day to day necessities like grocery stores, restaurants, etc or they didn't have a pool, or weren't direct ocean front, etc. This home will hopefully be our last, as it truly has everything you ever need to have a great time. Again, thank you so much for your kind review, we are very happy to have you again next year and hopefully many years after. Have a great Spring and Summer, see you next winter. Bobby

Best Christmas our family has had in a long time!!! GORGEOUS HOUSE, GORGEOUS VIEWS!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house over Christmas and New Years with our large family of 12 people. We never felt crowded and the house was perfectly equipped with everything we needed for a large gathering and multiple dinners. The location is perfect, we walked to almost everything from restaraunts, grocery store, CVS, and even a few Bars. The pool is large and heated, even though we didn't need to heat it but 1 time. The kids loved fishing in the canal and caught some big fish (even a nurse shark and a morey eel). The owners were great to work with and have the house decorated to the 10's. Can't wait to celebrate in this home again soon, thank you again for such a wonderful and comfortable vacation.

Perfect Vacation with Grandkids

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with here in December with our children and grandkids. The house is beautiful, spotless and comfortable, and the pool is heated!

The owner even provided us with pool toys and beach towels. We hope to return soon.

Our favorite night out was dinner at Lorelei in Islamorada, watching the magician Michael Trixx. We also enjoyed feeding the tarpon at Robbie's, but the pelicans are very aggressive.

Owner's Response: Terrece Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Glad you had such a great trip and enjoyed the pool and house so much. No doubt, Michael Trixx is awesome. I think we have seen him 100 times and for some reason his show never gets old. Funny you mentioned that the pelicans are aggressive at robbies, the last time we went there they attached our little dog trying to get our tarpon food. Anyway, thanks again and we look forward to having you again very soon. Bobby
