Not Perfect but Still a Good Value
Islamorada is a great spot in the keys. Easy access to upper and lower keys and a great spot for vacation. Great views of sunrise over the ocean every morning. Building exterior, lobby, and common areas are still in tough shape after the hurricanes (presuming). Unit is very nice, nicely furnished, and clean. Unit listed as “sleeps 6” but it only has two king beds. No sleeper sofa, so no way to really sleep 6. Unit needs maintenance (towel rods, fixtures, trim) were damaged. Puddle periodically on the floor in front of the fridge/freezer. Front screen door and trim damaged (almost looks like it was forced open). Listing indicated the unit had fishing poles. There were two but none were functional (reels badly broken). Still WAY better and better value than a hotel and I would rent this or similar property again.
The condo that we stayed at was very clean, and the owner was very nice and helpful. We will stay again! Very nice!
Nice condo - pic of prop misleading
The condo itself was very nice and well kept up.
Disappointed that pictures on VRBO showed tikis with grills on beach, description talked about tennis courts, fitness and community area with ping pong etc.. Non of these exist since the hurricane almost 2 years ago so unfortunately they did not update their pictures and descriptions before I booked.
Beautiful view from our balcony. Very nice and clean
The only downside was that the washing machine ate my money. None of the machines were working. Other then not doing my clothes prior to coming home we loved the place. The pool was great. Quiet place and very relaxing. We would stay here again in the future.
Such a relaxing vacation in The Keys
This was a really fun place to stay. The condo was very nice with a great view, and the other guests and residents could not be more pleasant. Plenty of chairs at the really warm pool for the end of January vacation. Went jet skiing one day with JSK water sports, they gave us time on our own and a guide waiting for us within sight so we could go from one side of the land to the other, so much fun. Soon, when all of the hurricane damage construction is over, this will be a more than 5 star property. The construction company shut down the water one short time, while we were out without warning, residents were mad. The day before we left, the construction workers had a waterline accident and the water was off from 8:45 AM until after the dinner hour. We did our laundry the night before and had already showered and dressed for a day at the beach and pool so it was just a tiny inconvenience for us, but others not so much, especially the couple checking in the day the power was out. If we come to this area of The Keys again, we will definitely want to lease this unit, from Geri, again, she was great, and it is going to be so beautiful with construction complete.
Condo and pool were wonderful! Would rent this unit again.
Everyone had a great time. This condo has a perfect location. Beautiful ocean view. Quiet . Very comfortable with full kitchen. Had problem with laptop connecting to internet. Common areas other than the pool needed repairs.
