About Roger and Linda Robitaille
We both grew up in Western Massachusetts. For many years, we vacationed in South Florida over the holidays and yearned for its warm weather and gorgeous ocean waters. Now, our permanent residence is in Naples, Florida, where we enjoy power-boating and bicycling all year long.
Roger and Linda Robitaille purchased this House in 2015
Why Roger and Linda Robitaille chose Islamorada
Having become acquainted with all of the Keys during business travel over the years, Roger came to appreciate all that Islamorada, especially Windley Key, has to offer and dreamed of owning a home in Angler's Reef, which with its quaint, well-maintained conch homes and gorgeous landscaping captured our hearts! "Windley Cottage" has the perfect location within the community - close to the pool and boat lagoon, yet farther from the road. It was love at first sight!
What makes this House unique
Windley Cottage, in an architectural style known as a "Bahamian Conch Cottage", features high ceilings on both floors, four porches, and metal roofing. It is reminiscent of the classic structures of Key West. Although each of the homes has different individual details (dormers, gingerbread, hip or gabled rooflines, porch railing details), all are of the same basic style, providing the feeling of a Village within the Village. Our home's pastel yellow painted clapboard siding is cheery and inviting. Large double-hung windows allow plenty of light into our home. A stroll through the community is a step back to simpler, more laid-back times (but with all the modern amenities). Sitting on the back porch or on the guest room balcony looking at sunrise over the ocean or a sunset to the west is a treat! The details inside make our home stand out among the others! Our well-maintained home offers upscale, newer appliances, furnishings, and plentiful amenities. The tastefully decorated interior, with a few beachy accents, completes the feel of a luxury vacation accommodation. That's why our home is special and we want you to enjoy our home just as much as we do!

Great little neighborhood and home - enjoyed the additional items in the home with the SUP boards, Kayaks, and beach chairs.
Everything was very clean and as advertised.
One of our best vaca’s of all time
We had a wonderful time at this property. Linda and Roger were so gracious with sending us info, timely responses, and just all around great. We wll be back again for sure.
Beautiful, Beachy and Comfortable
The Windley Cottage is a lovely home! It was beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished, and it provided a relaxing setting for our week in Islamorada. We enjoyed all of the amenities that were included, such as the kayaks, paddleboards and bikes. The pool area was gorgeous and the ocean view from our chairs was like none other! Roger and Linda were the most helpful and welcoming hosts we have ever rented from. We can't wait to return for another week in paradise!

I will be back to this wonderful home on another vacation to Islamorada! The home was clean, comfortable and well appointed. We had everything we needed and Linda and Roger provided valuable information as I planned our trip. There was one small hiccup and they were quick to respond to ensure I was happy!
We have twin beach cruiser bikes, 2 kayaks and 2 stand-up paddle boards for our guests' use.
