About an hour and fifteen minute drive from Miami International Airport and about 90 minutes from Ft. Lauderdale to will bring you to Islamorada, the 'Fishing Capital of the World.' Our condo is a fourth floor oceanfront paradise. It is well off the busy highway where you will not hear any noise. This art deco style condo building was built in the mid 70's, and has been very well maintained. There is private covered parking for two vehicles. The huge private screened-in and tiled balcony will let you view, hear, smell, and feel the turquoise ocean breeze only a few feet away. Watch the fishing and dive boats head out of Tavernier Creek. Sometimes you can even see brightly lit cruise ships at night headed to Key West and beyond. Each bedroom and family room opens to this large balcony where you can watch the sun rise each morning with your morning coffee and have cooling afternoon shade. The condo and balcony have total privacy. It's 100% ocean view from every room! It has new AC, new bedding and bedspreads, cable tv in all rooms, and new 46 and 40 inch flat screen TVs. WIFI is in the condo and in the office. All rooms have been recently painted in brite tropical Keys' colors. It is all tile throughout, there is a full kitchen complete with utensils, and all appliances. There are two bedrooms with new king and queen size beds. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a beautifully remodeled and enlarged tiled shower with seat. Swim in a beautiful heated pool overlooking the ocean, play tennis on the private tennis court, fish or kayak outside your door. Conveniently located near restaurants, shopping, fishing, diving, boat and kayak rentals etc. There is a grocery store, liquor store, dollar store, movie theatre, sports bar, Post Office, and more all at the local shopping center just down the road. Within short driving distances are the famous Pennecamp State Park, Everglades National Park, Bird Sanctuary, and the Dolphin Research Center where you can swim with the dolphins. Key West makes for a nice day trip for lunch and exploring Duval Street, Margaritaville, art stores, museums, and is located about 90 minutes south on the most scenic highway route including the famous 7 mile bridge. We have been coming to this place for 35 years for its location to everything, and did I mention the view? :) #060

The property needed updating on the inside and outside of the building.
Some of the updating that was needed was caused by a Hurricane that hit the Keys in September of 2017. The first floor was boarded up and the construction crew was there every day during our stay. They were working on the elevator and office and weight room and other units throughout the day. The construction noise was continual throughout the day. The pool area was ok except for the noise from the construction crew. The beach area was not usable. The sand was delivered and sat in piles until they came toward the end of our stay to spread it. The inside of the condo was furnished with older furniture and the cane chairs were very uncomfortable. The master king bed was not very comfortable. The kitchen was very outdated. Positive things were the view was very pretty and the pool was nice except for the noise from the construction crews.
Never had any of the complaints that you refer to since renting our condo for 14 years, except the restoration from Irma. I cannot predict when work will be taking place for it is happening all thruout the Keys for the next year or until finished. Before Irma all reviews were 5 stars.
Nice property but disappointing.
Unfortunately there was still considerable damage to the property from the hurricane. The condo unit itself was nice, though could use some updating. There were many other units within the building that were still having repairs done. The beach was still being repaired, which we did not know until we got there so we were not able to sit at the beach during our stay. The pool is nice and we did spend a little time there. It was sad to see the damages to the island. Most of our favorite places were up a running and many others are still working on it. We enjoyed our favorite places to eat and drink such as Lorelei's, Lazy Day's, Mile Marker 88, Midway Cafe (best key lime pie ever), Florida Brewing and Islamorada Brewing. We did a kayak trip one day through the mangroves which was very fun.
Thank you for letting us stay in your condo. Hopefully the island continues to recover quickly!
Yes Irma was very disappointing to millions of people who live and visit the keys. With respect to repairs to other units and the beach, they were all scheduled to be finished long before your arrival. It takes a long time to get things done. For example, the drywall people for example have to drive from North Miami everyday do get to Sea Gulls. There is a housing shortage for blue collar tradesmen that was magnified by the storm.
Please feel free to return as each year will look better and better. This is not their first hurricane. Thank you
The pool was wonderful. We realize the rest of the amenities are being worked on because of the hurr
The condo needs some tlc - could use some updating also. And we had to replace/fix some things. Once that was done we enjoyed our stay. The weather was perfect and the view from the condo amazing! Thank You
Thanks for replacing the toilet seat cover and coffee pot. I offered reimbursement to you by either cash or credit on future stay. Sorry about Irma and the slow recovery that will take some time.
Property is beautiful, condo was amazing, perfect place to stay in the keys.
We had so much fun here in the keys! The condo was well stocked and in the perfect area to get some peace and quiet, all while being close to everything we needed and wanted to do. Nicely decorated inside, clean and comfortable, and I loved the balcony especially. The view is amazing. Pool was great, loved the beach area and grills. We kayaked right off the property many days and saw stingrays, manatees, jellyfish, and all sorts of other fish. Everyone we met was very friendly and gave us plenty of advice on where to go, what to see, and where to eat. We would definitely come back to the seagulls.
We are very glad you enjoyed our condo and hope you return. We go there frequently to enjoy it also and make sure everything is just perfect for our guests. It is one special place.
The most perfect view and the condo was in the perfect location
The owners were a joy to work with. We will return often
