About the Property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Beautiful Bathrooms, Too Many Amenities Included

For a relaxing & fun family vacation experience. It is time to change your latitude, attitude & immerse your body & mind in the calming, soothing waters that surround this Florida Keys paradise. So come enjoy Gulf waterfront sunsets in Islamorada, Florida. (OK. I agree, it's kind of corny but oh so very true.)

We offer you our spacious & very clean 2 bedroom plus loft area / 2 full bathrooms townhouse. It sleeps up to 5 very comfortably. Our townhouse is elegantly-appointed with full new kitchen, two new updated & expanded bathrooms, a complete new office, nice quiet bedrooms for deep relaxing sleep, & numerous amenities to make you feel completely at home.

As taken from a guest review: 'The condo is located in a secure, gated community. The facilities & grounds are clean & very well maintained. The condo itself was perfect for our needs. It was clean & equipped with everything we could possibly need, & we quickly felt as though we were at home. The owners were readily available to respond to any questions or concerns & went above & beyond to ensure that our stay would be a memorable one.' Another wrote 'fun at Founders Park (beach, volleyball court, baseball fields) which is walking distance next door... The sunsets are beautiful! All the beds were so comfortable & the upstairs bathroom is amazing!'

Our beautiful home is on Mile Marker 87 in Islamorada, located in a 24 hour security private gated community. FREE secure Wi-Fi. 2-story Condo with large 2 bedrooms & loft (1 King, 4 Full Beds, & Foldout Sofa Bed), & 2 newly redesigned full bathrooms. This beautiful townhouse is fully furnished & equipped with all possible amenities. We offer a personal semi-private backyard patio furnished with BBQ & complete outdoor patio furniture. All very nice bedding & towels included.

BATHROOMS:
We have done a series of major upgrades. One is the expansion of the master bathroom. It is now the most spacious bathroom possible in our community, with high open ceiling which shows off the natural wood beams above. The surrounding shower walls & floors are beautifully tiled & enclosed with glass & stained glass window feature. To top it off, we installed a new spa-like rain-like shower with multiple body sprays which gives the very best showering experience possible, even better than many 5-star retreats. My wife, a licensed designer, created this luxurious bathroom area. We also upgraded & redesigned first floor bathroom. This included adding an awesome over-head rain shower.

KITCHEN & LIVING AREA:
The other major project was the complete expansion of our kitchen. It is now the most spacious & functional kitchen in our community. We also supplied our kitchen with just about EVERYTHING that you may need for creating delicious family meals. So you simply step & you can enjoy cooking while still being engaged with everyone.
The kitchen has an open design that flows with the rest of the first floor. On one side of the kitchen is a breakfast area for morning coffee & chats. While on the other side, there is a large & inviting family friendly table & entertainment area.

ENTERTAINMENT AREA:
1st floor has very comfortable open layout, which is very accommodating for families. We offer the newest entertainment technology TV / DVD player / secure WiFi / Roku / cable channels, Sony stereo, & a special option of Internet connected tiny computer viewed from 37 inch TV screen & more. Nobody else has the high definition cable channels. Plus a library of books / magazines, music CDs, & various DVD movies. Plus 2 separate USB electronic charging stations for smart phones, iPad, & other devices. We have numerous board games if you want the family to go low tech (for a change).

SEMI-PRIVATE BACKYARD:
Another project was the expansion of our patio & landscaping front & back of condo. Our backyard is very private due to privacy wall & surrounding palm trees, gardens, on one side & new trellis & more trees on the other side. Our personal semi-private backyard & expanded patio is furnished with complete outdoor patio furniture (table, shade umbrella, chairs, & tiki torches). For the grill master, we have a very functional BBQ with two propane tanks ready to go. For special touch, we have unique evening & night lighting in patio & umbrella.

BEDROOMS & LOFT:
Our place has 2 full bedrooms, plus a nice large loft area. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed (with great high-quality comforter, sheets, & pillows) & digital Samsung cable TV on wall. We get many compliments on comfort & sleep on our high-end mattress, with many asking us for the mattress brand. The 2nd bedroom is very spacious with two full size beds & a comfy trundle bed. There is also an open loft area that has two twin beds. All rooms, including loft, have their own Comcast Cable TVs (4 in all).

HOME OFFICE:
We created a semi-private / separate area for working, studying, reading or just playing on a computer. We have a desk & new high-end, highly comfortable executive chair, extra flat panel monitors, keyboard/mouse, & printer. These are all ready to connect to your personal laptop. This area is fully stocked with just about every office need, including even multiple laptop power supplies.

EXTRA AMENITIES:
We have numerous additional amenities to our vacation home. This includes some bikes (2 for adults & 2 for kids), large number of different size snorkeling gears (goggles, fins, a few vests, & diver/snorkeling flag), 4 to 5 higher end tennis equipment, fishing gear & net, beach floats, beach chairs, picnic coolers, a large array of beach towels, beach bags, s& castle building stuff for kids, various board games, balls, Frisbees, hats, & our list keeps growing. (If not sure, just ask us. I’m pretty sure that we have it.)

TOP QUALITY:
All comfortable bedding, linens, bath towels & towels included. (No cheap 's& paper feeling' towels or linen found here.) You walk in & all beds are made. (No bed in a bag found here.)
OUR SPECIAL LOCATION:
Our condo is in a private with 24-7 onsite security & yet everything is close by. Our townhouse is a very short walk to the pool & clubhouse. The big heated pool surrounded by lounge chairs, the fishing pier & private beach area. Manatees come by swimming around the community fishing pier / boat dock.

Due to our picturesque shoreline (with its small lighthouse, boats), it provides incredible daily sunset photo ops. So bring your camera & a favorite drink to relax in the beach chairs in this family friendly setting as the sun goes down.

You are within walking distance to Founders Park Complex. This offers you a large Olympic sized pool with diving boards, large sandy beach, s& volleyball court, walking jogging bicycling trails, full basketball court, large soccer & baseball fields, Olympic size pool, kiddie water park & more. Plus Founders Park has full marina with rental boat dock slips available. There are numerous popular FREE to you (due to location) events at Founders Park that take place throughout the year.

Yes, this is all close by & situated in Islamorada, the Sport Fishing Capital of the World.

MORE EXTRAS:
My wife has prepared a 3-ring binder with information about the local area (site seeing, local events, many discount coupons, maps, & more). Our home is surrounded by plenty of great places to eat. Just read our reviews & guestbook for ideas of best eateries & fun things to do. Plus we will be available for any questions via text messaging before & during your vacation.

SUPER CLEAN:
Our townhouse is kept extremely clean. Absolutely NO Smoking in unit. Sorry, no pets are allowed by condo association rules. No carpeting, just smooth high-end tiles & wood flooring, marble floors & counter, washer/dryer, screened doors. & ceiling fans to circulate the air in all rooms. (Yes, we have excellent central air.)

VALUE & OUR RATES:
Our rates should be comparable & may be a bit higher than others. But we feel very strongly that we offer so much more in terms of true value & our extras allows you to spend less. So please compare our location, actual home value, extra comfort, & the numerous amenities. There is a choice of insurance or damage deposit. (We remove deposit in many cases.) You will be able to have your choice of payment.

CANCELLATIONS:
There is a non-refundable payment to hold reservation & 60-day cancellation date range. But refunds may take place if we can re-rent. Note that given enough advance notice we should be able to re-rent.

NUMBER OF GUESTS:
Our published rates are based on double occupancy. There is charge for adding guests (yes - including children). It is a reasonable assumption that additional guests increase our costs. Therefore, we do have a slight additional daily charge per guest beyond two. Security will monitor the number of guests.

MONTHLY RENTAL COMMUNITY:
Islamorada & our community rules has monthly rental policies. However, we may NOT rent an entire month (28-nights), so we may be flexible & consider one single rental during that period. The fact is that we do limit the number of rentals, which allows us to be in our home away from home as often as possible.

FOR FASTEST RESPONSE:
We do request all inquiries have a PHONE NUMBER & the number of guests clearly stated.

OUR GUESTS & FRIENDS:
We look forward to speaking to those that are interested in our home. Yes, we take the time to speak to all guests that visit our home. We look for folks that will take care of home & will respect our neighbors & friends.

Please feel free to ask any important question or even ask for extra clarification to help you with your decision. It's your vacation.

Since we work hard & know that every family must work & plan so much for a time away, we take your vacation experience to heart. We promise to do our best for you always.

Through our beach home, we have been blessed to now have new friends worldwide!

2 Beaches - Private & Founders Park Sandy Beach

Car: Recommended

Our beautiful vacation home is smack in the middle of Islamorada. We are surrounded by numerous excellent 4 and 5 star restaurants within a short drive. There are at least 3 good places to dine within less than a mile (including a short bike ride to Marker 88). There are many local attractions and places to visit, such as world-famous Tiki Bar, Theatre by the Sea (swimming with dolphins), and many more.

Plus we're very close to supermarkets, pharmacies, dollar stores, cinema, and hospital.

Our specific townhouse is extremely peaceful, away from any noise and cars. The backyard is very private to do a nice BBQ in the back.

Take one-minute walk from condo to our sandy beach / pool / boat dock/fishing area. This are all private within our community with 24/7 security.

Most folks walk down to the beach / dock with a favorite beverage in hand to catch the amazing bayside sunset show. Every day is different.

You can get really active if you want: Enjoy taking our bikes out and about (on the bike paths) or go riding / walking next door to Founder's park, which includes another really nice sandy beach, sand volleyball court, cycling trails, exercise/walking trail, soccer fields, baseball fields, and Olympic pool.

Other active options: go swimming or play tennis in community club facilities (with our 6 rackets). Take our fishing rods to the fishing pier. There's easy access for snorkeling and kayaking.

As taken from some of our guest reviews:

'The condo is located in a secure, gated community. The facilities & grounds are clean and very well maintained. The condo itself was perfect for our needs. It was clean and equipped with everything we could possibly need, and we quickly felt as though we were at home. The owners were readily available to respond to any questions or concerns and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay would be a memorable one.' Another wrote 'fun at Founders Park (beach, volleyball court, baseball fields) which is walking distance next door... The sunsets are beautiful! All the beds were so comfortable and the upstairs bathroom is amazing!'

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I grew up in New England and also lived in Michigan. So I appreciate our unique year round warm tropical climate. For me, it has always been about family and sharing special times and creating fun times. So that's what we've done. My beautiful wife and I been married for twenty-five years. We have two awesome daughters, plus their two baby cats. My wife is the one who showed me the importance of taking family vacations and creating our own special getaways. So we have vacationed in numerous US cities, throughout almost all the Caribbean islands, parts of Canada, honeymoon in Mexico and even a few cities in South America. Plus we have made multiple 5 trips to enjoy Europe (Italy, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Malta and England). Yes, we have created great vacation memories for ourselves. So we truly hope that you will find the Florida Keys, Islamorada, and our community and vacation home very special. We are passionate about the Florida Keys, so we feel that it's an incredible beautiful location where folks can create their own long lasting memories. We extend our home to both old and new friends with a real sense of pride and humility. This is in the true classic Spanish sense of “mi casa es su casa”. Best Regards, Jose

Why the Owner Chose Islamorada, FL, USA:
We chose this property since we enjoyed snorkeling and diving, fishing, site seeing, photography, and the area’s good food and ongoing events. We had been coming down to Islamorada & Key Largo for many years. We both dreamed of owning a second home right here in the Keys. Finally, a good friend told us about this community. We came down to visit him at his place and we simply fell in love. We saw first hand the beautiful family oriented pool and clubhouse. From the community's private boat dock, we traveled out on his boat and took in all the wonderful relaxing water adventures and returned just in time for the spectacular gulf sunset. I think that we were completely sold with that final sunset! Having done so much traveling, we know that our community is a special place. It is so easy to just relax reading or listening to music by the pool. While there are plenty of opportunities to add excitement of the local destinations. These are as close as the dock, or Founders Park next door, or a bike ride away. By the way, our vacation home is only a nice 1.5 hour scenic drive north to Miami and famous South Beach restaurants and activities. Plus you also head further south on a day trip Seven Mile Bridge, Bahia Honda, or Key West. To get to that special furthest southern point in US, you drive about 1 hour and 45 minutes surrounded on both sides by beautiful water scenery.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
You will enjoy the numerous amenities offered by this Islamorada community, such as the bay front heated pool, which is conveniently right next to air-conditioned clubhouse and lounge, outdoor patios and community BBQ cooking areas with tiki huts, and plus two immaculate lighted tennis courts (rackets provided). Next take a two-minute stroll over to the private sandy beach area and take a dip in the ocean water, or sit in one of the various beach chairs and just take some sun. Don’t forget to come back here and wait for the beautiful sunsets. You will treasure memories and the photos of your spectacular waterfront sunsets. The days are as active as you want in this Islamorada community. You will see folks walking, riding bikes, or skating around the complex. You can fish alone on the pier / boat dock or just sit and read as the gulf waters surround you. You can walk over next door to Founders Park Sports Complex, which has walking and cycling trails, soccer fields, baseball fields, skate park with incredible boarding ramps, white sandy beach, Olympic size pool, special events and much more... Founders Park has marina with boat slips and ramp. Leave all concerns behind since our place is in a private gated community, with 24 hour security. Your biggest concern is what to do each day, what music to listen to, and where to have lunch and dinner. (I recommend that you load your iPod with Jimmy Buffet.)
