Bay Front Home With Magnificent Views

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

Bay front home with 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, bring your boat

Located in Islamorada, the fishing capital of the world, this house is tucked away in a quite neighborhood on the bay side. The backyard consists of a private beach, custom BBQ pit, and a long pier with magnificent views of the Florida bay. There is ample room and depth to dock several boats in case you have any company. You will experience beautiful sunsets right off the end of the dock with a nice cool ocean breeze. During the day grab a rod and reel and toss in a line right off the dock, or jump in and grab a lobster nestled in the rocks below.

If the surf is too much for you to handle the house is just minutes from the famous Tiki Bar. If you want to go more upscale jump in the boat or car and head over to Mile Marker 88, a half mile away. Fantastic restaurants and bars abound, guaranteed not to disappoint.

The house comes equipped with high speed Internet accessible throughout the house along with cable and HDTV so you don’t have to worry about missing your favorite team play.

All the bathrooms have been recently updated with marble tile and fresh new fixtures. The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed and it has a big walk in closet and a master bath with a separate powder room. The upstairs guest room is made up of two twin beds.

In the living room and family room there are plenty of couches just incase the sleeping quarters get too cramped. Just outside the living room and dining room there is a great screened in porch for relaxing and reading. There is a nice deck just outside the screened in porch running the length of the house for catching some rays.

Downstairs you will find a private suite with a queen bed and a full futon (comfortable spring mattress) along with its own private bathroom. Just outside the suite is a custom BBQ pit ready for grilling up your catch of the day.

About Grant Souviron

Born and raised in Miami. Growing up I spent most of my weekends down in the Keys fishing, diving, and doing plenty of water sports. Recently I have been very busy with work and have not had much time to spare. We as a family finally made the decision to share this wonderful place.

Grant Souviron purchased this house in 1982

Why Grant Souviron chose Tavernier

This house has been in the family for thirty years and will continue to stay in the family for at least another generation. This is where my dad taught me how to dive and fish and I plan to do the same with my own.

What makes this house unique

The warm water, marine life, and quick boat rides to all the cool spots in the middle keys made me fall in love with this place. The view and sunsets are amazing. It's close enough to Miami to make it an enjoyable drive yet far enough away to make you believe you are in another world.

Beautiful waterfront home in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful with plenty of space for two families of 4. Our family had a wonderful time with fishing right off the pier in the back and docking our boat for easy access to the bay. The living areas were spacious and beautiful. The master bedroom bed was not comfortable, however the shower was amazing. The views watching the sunrise and sunset from the home was breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this house and would just suggest brining a memory foam mattress to put on the bed for comfort.

House is clean, nice, quiet, and simple.

Location is safe and easy access to diving and fishing.

Excellent spot.

Only problem was we couldn't catch the lobster under the dock.

Great week at a great place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed six nights with wife and two teenagers. Home is large and very well-appointed. Lots of space inside to relax, though you'll be outside most of the time. Master suite is huge with walk in closet and a giant shower. Second bedroom/bath upstairs are also very nice. Separate suite downstairs is large, would be perfect for a non-family companion (wifi not so good there). Brand new washer & dryer in kitchen. Kitchen has all the equipment you need, as well as some pantry items like coffee, spices, etc. All TVs are new and most are huge. Sliders everywhere if the outside temp is right to open the place up to the breezes. AC works great. We spent most of our time on the dock in the sun, swimming, kayaking/paddleboarding (rent them from, they deliver and pick up). Lots of fish to see off the dock, and got an unexpected visit from a family of manatees. Sunsets are spectacular from the dock. Bring water shoes if you want to wade in the shallows--the Keys are not known for sandy beaches, and there are some rocks. Swimming off the dock is no problem. US 1 is busy, so be careful (it's often easier to turn right out of the neighborhood and then turn around to go left). You'll get used to when the busy times are. Winn Dixie a few miles down US 1 in Tavernier. Lots of great tiki bars dotted all along US 1, be sure to try them. Also, we highly recommend Jersey Boardwalk Pizza (walkable from the house). Grant's place is a perfect location for the Tavernier/Islamorada area.

Location, location, location! !!!! Gorgeous bay views...million dollars worth! The house was perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was great and this house made it even better. The location was fantastic! The pier was our boys favorite cause they fished off of it every day and night. Your in the middle of it all, mins away from fabulous restaurants! Also the bayside has the spectacular sunsets and of course this house has that perfect rooftop deck! The house is equipped with every thing you need to make your stay perfect. Grant was a pleasure to work with and always answered my calls.

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

This house is located in the heart of Islamorada, just minutes from the famous Robbys marina where you can feed the giant Tarpons. It's well worth the trip if you haven't been there before. If you have a desire to swim with dolphins the theater of the sea is just around the corner. The famous John Pennekamp coral reef park is just a 20 minute drive north. Take a snorkeling tour of the reef and see all the amazing marine life, a must do! If you are into bird watching the wild bird center is just a 10 minute drive away. They have a diverse variety of birds that they rescue and reintroduce into the wild. To sum everything up the location doesn't get much better.
