About Pat & Maureen Murphy

We are The Murphys! Pat was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. Maureen was born in New York, but moved to Fort Lauderdale at the age of 10. We lived in Fort Lauderdale until 2013, when we moved to Tennessee. Although we love Tennessee, we found that we really missed the water. had to find a way to come back! This home is our way back and we couldn't be happier about it! We just love this house, and hope that you will too!

Pat & Maureen Murphy purchased this house in 2016

Why Pat & Maureen Murphy chose Islamorada

We chose this property because we have spent a lot of vacation time in this area. There is so much to do and see here. And the restaurants are great! It's also known as the Fishing Capital, so that helped us in our decision.

What makes this house unique

This property was one of our top picks when we were looking for a home. We just loved the look of the soaring wood ceilings throughout the home and we love the open kitchen area.

By far the Best Vacation Home in the Keys we ever stayed in.All the Beds were very comfortable and the Bedrooms were very spacious.The Kitchen had everything you needed.If you had a Question the Owner responded Quickly and was very Nice to talk to.The Canal had LED Lights under the Water so at Night we could see the Tarpons and all the other Fish and during the day we saw Manatee's almost every day.It was so Relaxing and we are planning to come back as lone as its available.

A Comfortable Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this casual, comfortable Keys vacation home during Irma recovery work on our condo. We immediately fell in love with it! It was a delight to come back from a long day out and enjoy a glass of wine on the screened patio overlooking the water. The large dining table allowed us to invite friends and family in for a home cooked meal adding so much to our enjoyment! The renovations were all done in good taste and the property is well maintained. The open ceiling gives it a true Keys cottage feel. I highly recommend a stay whether for a week or month- you will enjoy it!

Owner's Response: We love that people have been enjoying our home, just as much as we do! We have always loved the Florida Keys and having this vacation rental home has given us the opportunity to share what we love! We always look forward to meeting and sharing our home with new people that enjoy the Keys!

Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week here and it was perfect. The owners are very responsive. The house is super clean and the amazing kitchen was well equipped. We found everything we needed including being able to fish off the dock. While it was a tight fit for our 20 inch boat at the dock we were able to keep it there. The house was so comfortable it really felt like being home. We wiould definitely love to stay here again and highly recommend it.

Worth Every Penny!!

  • 5 of 5

First - the pictures do the bedrooms no justice! They are actually very large and roomy. So don't think the master is small with little room to walk. I wanted to take the king bed home with me.

We've used VRBO for at least 15 yrs now. This is by far my all time favorite! Beautiful, fresh, new, modern, any and all comforts provided. This place is the Ritz of VRBO rentals. I write my reviews very fair, blunt, and honest. I would recommend this condo to anyone with no reservations!

The owners are quick to respond, however I never needed to interact with them after we arrived. Everything was perfect!

Great home! Modern and clean.

  • 5 of 5

House in great condition. Very comfy. We loved the kitchen!! Great to be in the canal. Our boat was too big so could not take advantage of that feature. A boat over 20ft in lengh may be a problem since owners keep their boat on the lift there. Great neighborhood. Overall had a great expirience.

There's lots to do nearby! Restaurants like the Fish House, Gilberts, Jimmy Johnsons, The famous Tiki Bar, Hobos, Lazy Days, and lots more are all great! There's Publix and Winn Dixie for your grocery shopping. Plenty of water activities at John Penne Camp (paddle boarding, snorkeling, jet-skiing, glass bottom boat rentals and lots more). You can swim with the dolphins, sea lions, rays, and even sharks at Theater of the Sea. They also offer different shows with a variety of marine mammals. You can go deep sea fishing or even parasailing. There's also Florida's southern most point, Key West, which is a must while in the Keys! There's a lot to do and see while in our beautiful little piece of paradise!!
