Oceanfront, Private Beach, Charming 2 Bed 2 Bath Beach Cottage - Kayaks Included

Perch on high above the Ocean in this charming 2 bed 2 bath beach cottage, with expansive Ocean views everywhere.

This one of a kind home with a private beach is centrally located in a secluded area of the beautiful Island of Islamorada, surrounded by palms, pines, and lime trees, and a short distance to a great variety of restaurants well known for their fresh-from-the-dock seafood as well as ethnic dishes, diners at tiki-covered bars, dockside fish houses, gourmet beachfront cafes and secluded island bistros lit by table candles and tiki torches.

The house is fully equipped with everything you need and much more to have a fun, relaxing vacation, including coolers for short trips, a Barbeque with 2 gas tanks, 2 Kayaks for two people each, a professional foosball table, board games, brand new, extra capacity washer and dryer, wine glasses, ultra fast speed wireless Internet with excellent coverage all over the property including the private beach, etc. etc.

As you enter the property gates you will be amazed by the breath taking view of the ocean right at your footsteps, your own 100 feet private beach, and the typical Key West style House built of colorful wood and set on piers, and a porch across the full width of the house.

Watch plenty of native wildlife, bonefish swim by your 100' of white sand private beach, ospreys, herons and eagles catch their dinner.

Enjoy the ocean views, the warm breeze, and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and don’t forget to sit by the beach at night to catch countless shooting stars...

Great week escape!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in various places in the keys over the past several years. We wanted to try a new spot and so glad we did! From the moment we pulled into the house, we fell in love with the view and the amazing daily breezes under the house. We were still close enough to dive in Key Largo (we have a favorite dive op there) and see all the other sights the keys have to offer.

The house was very clean and the property (outside area-beach) seems to be cleaned weekly as well. We ate in almost every night so this was a great kitchen filled with spices and basic cleaning supplies (paper towels, trash bags, dishwasher detergent)- even though we had brought some of our own.

While we didn't watch too much tv- loved having such a nice one (and 2 others on the bedrooms) plus they have cable with on demand features.

AC in the house worked very well and the size of the house was perfect for a family of 4. The washer and dryer worked great as well....perfect to be able to wash some of our wet clothes after a week of diving!

Communication with the owner was awesome! Every email was responded to plus additional info was provided during our stay. Thank you!!!

While it is true that you can hear the road noise- we have found it hard to have a view and no road noise. The key islands tend to be so small and narrow so you will usually hear road noise. After a day of relaxing with the view and breeze you could forget about it. It really didn't bother us.

We really didn't get a chance to use the kayaks but if we had more time we would have- the tides were super low during the day plus the winds were a bit high as well. Glad they were there in case we wanted to use them.

We loved the comforts of this rental and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for opening your home for us to share in this beautiful view! We are missing sitting under the house, enjoying the breeze and watching the wildlife. Thank you!!!

The Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This a stunning jewel of a beach house, beautifully equipped and comfortable. The views from every window are breathtaking. A private beach and views forever out into the blue. Simply divine. We chose this beach house as part of our honeymoon and it could not have been more romantic. The house is really set up for a family of four and has lots of space, and places to hideaway on your own. The kitchen is well equipped, there's a brand new gas Griller/BBQ downstairs and the washer and dryer are top of the line. Plenty of deck and sun lounge chairs to sit on the sand or under the shade of the yellow house, up on stilts, and gaze over the changing blue. There is road noise, but we keeping the windows along the road front closed which deleted most of the noise. It never troubled us. The sound of the waves lapping the beach won out. This is such a good value, well maintained property owned by a delightful bloke named Gabriel who was incredibly helpful when we needed him during our stay. Cannot recommend highly enough. Perfect.

First time in the Keys

  • 4 of 5

We have never been to the Keys, so we didn't know what to expect - but now the bar has been set high. Gorgeous view and very clean property inside and out.

Cottage - Great layout / kitchen was well stocked with the essentials / easily accessible washer and dryer / again the view was incredible from inside / great supply of activities (fosse ball, board games, etc...)

Grounds - Beautiful view of the Atlantic with blue skies and green palm trees. We used the kayaks (but got stuck with low tide coming back to shore. lol) Many hours were spent on the patio area, playing cards, watching the kids run around and soaking in the sights.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We are heading home from our trip now and we did not want to leave! The property was absolutely wonderful! The pictures of the house do not do it justice. The inside is beautiful and the outside spectacular! The owner is readily available to answer questions. We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks that came with the house too. Honestly, I never wanted to leave the property to sight see! The beach at the house is amazing and has awesome sunrises, views, etc. We will definitely be booking this property again in the future! Thanks so much.
