About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Renovated in 2012, the apartment is a two story town home. As you come in the first floor, the ample dining/living room overlooks the canal and the native shrubbery through wall-to-wall sliding glass doors.

For you indoor entertainment, there is a 55' flat screen smart TV, surround sound, Blue Ray/DVD player and board games.

On this floor there is also a half-bathroom for guests.

Finally, there is a fully equipped kitchen, with granite counter tops, bar height counter for buffets, standard size refrigerator, ceramic top range, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. All china, silverware, cooking utensils, serving trays, etc, are included.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom offers a striking view of the marina, a wall-to-wall closet, a flat screen TV, and the master bathroom.

The second bedroom holds a full size and a twin size bed. It can accommodate 2-3 people comfortably. The second full bathroom is in the hallway.

The washer and dryer are also upstairs.

We have built a brick patio in the back of the property ideal for barbecuing and dining in the fresh air.

Buttonwood Bay Condominium offers an array of activities right within the complex. There are three pools, 5 tennis courts, an exercise room and a game room. We also have a small, sandy beach and grassy, treed, open areas for the kids to play, or to just walk around and take beautiful pictures.

In addition, each unit has its own boat slip. Also there is a convenience store in the property where resident boaters can gas up, get ice, bait, snacks and fishing gear.

Sunsets in The Florida Keys are majestic and Buttonwood Bay offers 6 Martini Decks right on the bay from where to enjoy them.

About Angie Sotolongo

My husband and I lived in Miami for 20 years, and there is where we raised our children. We would go boating often, we all got our scuba licenses and practiced all sorts of water sports. As the kids were approaching the teen years, we decided that a property like this one, just one hour away from Miami, would offer a fun and convenient way to keep doing what we loved, and the kids could invite their friends to spend weekends and breaks with us.

Last year we decided that it was time to renovate the apartment. The kids are all grown up now, and we find ourselves spending months at a time in the Keys. So we remodeled with that in mind.

We have been permanently living in the Keys for the last 2 years, and get to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets every evening.

Angie Sotolongo purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Angie Sotolongo chose Key Largo Area

When we were looking to buy a place in the Keys, we looked at many properties. We decided to purchase this one for several reasons. First, Buttonwood is a mere hour away from Miami. It was easy to come every weekend. Second, each unit has its own boat slip. This avoided the hassle of all the planning needed to get the boat out of storage and into the water. It meant that we could decide to boat to the sunset on a whim.

Then, we also liked that Buttonwood Bay Condominiums has a security gate, and guards regularly drive around the property to keep it safe and in order.

We chose this particular unit because it was bigger than the others. It had been remodeled to add a full bathroom upstairs, and the sliding glass doors had been pushed out to make the master bedroom and living room bigger.

What makes this townhome unique

As you come in the unit, your eyes are automatically drawn to the view in back: There is a beautiful buttonwood tree straight back, and behind it is the canal. It is a very peaceful and relaxing view. We have built a brick patio in back, where we like to barbecue, read the news, or simply visit with our guests

Buttonwood Bay and Beautiful are the same word!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in the Keys since 1984 and discovered Buttonwood Bay last year and booked. It has everything you could ask for without going out of the premises. The surroundings are beautifully landscaped and continuously maintained, 5 tennis courts (1 is used for Pickle Ball), 3 pools, a workout room with modern machines, a games area and a sandy beach. The friendliness is noticeable immediately by everyone. You really cannot have a bad townhouse location as all are on a canal. Our townhouse was well located, close to all the facilities and we could not have asked for more. Our owner (Angie) made a point of contacting us to make sure we were settled in with no issues and even took the time to meet us personally during our stay. Should there have been any issues, which there were none, she was available for us immediately. How much do we enjoy our stay and townhouse....We have already booked for 2018. Thank you Angie and already looking forward to next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you Gino for such a wonderful review. We strive for our guests to have a great experience. Through the years, we've had many wonderful tenants, who take care of our townhouse as if it was their own, who have such a good time that they keep coming back.

Not worth the money

  • 2 of 5

This owner penalizes you if you dont complain about something. We didnt complain about anything broken, so therefore it was our fault. In addition, she tried to get us to hire her cleaning lady and have her clean the unit once a week. Her living room furniture is extremely uncomfortable. After moving out, she accused us of smoking in the unit when neither of us are smokers and we didnt have any guests. She then proceeded to deduct half of our damage deposit after renting with her for two years. Last year we were without hot water for over a month and didnt ask for compensation. This is so unfair.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to have an unhappy customer because I try very hard for all of my guests to have a great experience. All of my tenants, including my unhappy one, can attest to my responsiveness to emails, phone calls and to how quickly I take action to fix any problems. In the case of the water heater, a new unit was ordered and installed as soon as I was informed of the problem. Many of my guests keep coming back year after year because they are very happy and satisfied with their experience.

Buttonwood Bay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of January 2015 at this condo in Buttonwood Bay. This was our third year at Buttonwood Bay but our first year in this condo. It was fantastic. Recently remodeled with new appliances. Very clean. The owners were great. We met them the first day and they checked in with us throughout our stay to make sure everything was ok. Buttonwood Bay is a great location to both Miami and Key West.

Comfortable, Cozy & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My family of three were very happy with this rental unit. It had all the comforts of home with our boat not too far from the back veranda. We LOVED it!!

The unit was very clean, very well maintained and nicely decorated. There was ample closet and storage space and the owners have thought of everything to make this feel like home. The unit and bathrooms looked recently renovated - very nice!

We especially liked the gated community of Buttonwood Bay. Everyone is friendly, lots to do (pools, beach, tennis, fishing pier, etc.). It was our home away from home for a month and we enjoyed every moment of tranquility.

The owner, Angie, was extremely helpful and easy to work with. We had absolutely nothing to complain about!! We will definitely consider renting this unit again next year if it is still available.

Nearest Motorway

Car: necessary

Buttonwood Bay is conveniently located next door to the Hilton Key Largo Hotel. This makes it possible for our guests to enjoy all the water sports the hotel has to offer, like sailing, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, etc.

John Pennekamp State Park is a 15 min drive from Buttonwood Bay. The park offers a variety of water activities from glass bottom boats to scuba diving in the gorgeous reefs. The Christ of the Abyss is a sight to behold, with his Arms raised to the surface of the water surrounded by the reef and all sorts of colorful, tropical fish.

You can also swim with the dolphins at Dolphin Cove. This activity will make some amazing memories, and by the end, as with all good things, it will feel too short.

In addition, feeding the tarpon fish at Robbie's is quite an experience. These fish are BIG, and when they feed it creates a powerful and impressive 'whirlpool' in the water.
