To all of our guests who have posted reviews: Thank you!

We are very grateful to all of you for taking the time to post such wonderful reviews. We work very hard to provide a comfortable "home away from home" for our visitors to the Keys, and your kind words are very rewarding for us to read.

This adorable vacation home, renovated in 2015, is clean and modern, and in the perfect location to experience everything that the Florida Keys has to offer. Fishing, diving, biking, boating, shopping and a multitude of dining options just to name a few. We have prepared an extensive listing of area restaurants and activities for our guests to enjoy.

This little piece of paradise is located on Islamorada's southernmost of four Islands called Lower Matecumbe Key, just on the outskirts of the main village of Islamorada. When you cross the Tea Table Key bridge, you'll leave commerce behind and experience that first real tropical 'Keys' feel. Bright blue skies surrounded by stunning blue-green water on both sides of the road, with palm trees and sea birds everywhere you look. The air is warm, and at night, with so little man-made light, the stars seem to sparkle brighter than anywhere else on earth. It is truly a special place to experience.

Nestled among mature palms, 'Bungalow Blue' is a 525 square ft stand-alone condo that has been completely updated, and awaits your arrival. Best suited for one couple or two, this home has new furniture, stainless appliances, granite counter tops, new wood floors, a brand new washer/dryer, and two bedrooms, each with very comfortable queen-sized beds and flat screen TVs.

The house is in a private association of only 7 tropical villas where the grounds are impeccably maintained. Enjoy at no added charge: a sparkling private pool (shared by only 6 other condos) your own gas grill, 2 beach cruiser bicycles, free Wi-Fi, and a private boat ramp. Your rental agreement also gives you free access to Founders Park with a private beach, tennis courts, Olympic sized pool and more..

This home is located on a quiet street in a peaceful neighborhood where you can rest comfortably and quietly after a long day of Islamorada adventures. If you prefer clean and quiet over big and busy, you are certain to love this little place, and you might just find it hard to leave!

Sorry, no pets.


(from the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce)

Islamorada is known as the 'Sportfishing Capital of the World' and rumor has it that we also host a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world. This perfect family vacation destination offers something to do in, under, above or near the water 24 hours a day. The aqua blue waters surrounding our village of islands provide fantastic views from every bridge and waterfront resort, restaurant and home.

The name Islamorada is frequently translated from Spanish as 'purple isles.'

In addition to fishing, the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay offer adventures in diving, snorkeling, para sailing, wind-surfing, kayaking, boat racing and a variety of nature excursions like hand-feeding giant silver tarpon. Ever since the days of famous authors and sportsmen like Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey, our area has attracted outdoor competitors -- and every month offers a wide range of fishing tournaments, races and other sporting challenges.

The four islands of Islamorada also offer numerous tranquil spots to relax under the sun's glorious golden rays. Enjoy a beachfront cocktail, sunset cruise or spend the day shopping at one of the areas unique shops or galleries. Once you are relaxed, the finest in dining awaits to satisfy the tastes of every member of your family.

With an area history spanning more than 3,000 years and an active chamber with over 500 memberships, Islamorada is the premier location for inquisitive visitors and commerce to merge.

About Bill Adams

We are both natives of Connecticut where we currently live, and we love to spend time in the Florida Keys!

Bill Adams purchased this house in 2014

Why Bill Adams chose Islamorada Area

Buying this property was a dream come true for us. The Florida Keys is a very special place for it's tropical air and laid back vibe. Time slips away when we're here as we forget about the business of our lives and just relax to the pace of island time. Bungalow Blue may seem a bit small to some, but it has everything we need, and doesn't lack a thing. After all, the best thing about the Keys is being outside enjoying the weather. We feel very fortunate to be the owners of this special place, and are happy to be able to share it with our guests.

What makes this house unique

For us, Islamorada is truly the best of all the keys. The fishing is exceptional, the shallow water kayaking is off the chart, walking & biking is safe, there are more dining and shopping options here than in the lower keys, and it's a pleasant ride from the airports of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bill,

We just wanted you both to know that we had a great time in the keys at your place. It was our 20th anniversary get away. Bungalow Blue was perfect. You all have a really enjoyable place. Thank you for making it available to us.

Nice but not 5 star

  • 3 of 5

I booked this accommodation after reading others reviews and whilst I do agree with a lot of what was mentioned there are a few things I would point out. The positives are the house is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The negatives for us were that the air conditioning is really loud so we decided to sleep in the front bedroom furthest away from the unit, however being a slightly smaller bedroom I found that I stubbed my toes every time I got up to use the bathroom on the chest of drawers so we decided to move into the bigger bedroom and use the front as a dressing room. The bigger bedroom however was so noisy - you have the busy main road directly behind and the air conditioning banging and blasting all night so we didn't find it restful at all. Also the bathroom - or should I say shower room is tiny. I have never stayed anywhere with such a tiny main bathroom, hence the need to use the front bedroom as a dressing room. This was manageable for two people staying but would be inconvenient if both bedrooms were in use. Finally to the pool- yes you do have it to yourself for most of the time but there doesn't seem to be much pool maintenance so you have to scoop out the debris yourself if you are going to use it. I also said 'most of the time' as we did encounter a very dubious and rather intimidating neighbour one afternoon who seemed intent on making us feel so uncomfortable that we would leave ie blasting The Grateful Dead from his music player which he placed beside us, then 'bombing' into the pool splashing our stuff then saying "I hope I'm not disturbing you guys" which he clearly knew he was. Another tiny criticism is that there is no kettle or wine glasses - not everyone drinks coffee. Overall for the money and minus the one bad neighbour encounter it was decent value but for us we're not planning to return.

Relaxing in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bungalow Blue the first two weeks of June. Everything needed for two weeks of relaxation is at Bungalow Blue, the bungalow has all the amenities and great location. as others mentioned, we too had the pool to ourselves the whole time, which our five year old loved. the beach bikes were great to cruise north or south on the bike path on Route 1. Bill and Maggie were very responsive and attentive to any questions we had during our time in Islamorada. we would love to come back and stay again sometime. Thanks !

awesome vacation

We had such a great time in Islamorada! We especially loved the location and being close to the dive shop! The house itself provided everything we needed, and having the pool so close was a bonus! We will definitely be back to stay here!

We fish every year from Bud & Marys marina. This stay was perfect. The location was great, the pool was just next to the house and the house was well equipped with everything that we needed.

Highly recommend,

Thank you.

Enjoyed our stay in paradise at the Blue Bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

We are back in Indiana wishing we were still at our blue bungalow in paradise.

We enjoyed our week at this cute , comfy cottage by the sea. Our every need was met, and we really felt at home. The kitchen is well provided for. blender, grill tongs and spatula, pots, pans, I am a cook and i did not have to buy anything. We even had spices, tin foil, plastic wrap, containers for our left overs. A nice working grill to cook our catch! mmm mahi mahi... I loved the coffee pot with the carafe and enjoyed having hot coffee all morning. I enjoyed sitting on the patio with the view of the pool , palm trees and beautiful birds. We even had a cooler for the beach! We loved having bikes to explore the neighborhood.

This bungalow is so beautifully decorated and well done that it made us feel "at home".

The pool was "ours" the whole week. We did not have to share it with a soul.

Truly paradise!

The owners were wonderful to work with. everything was perfect and easy! Our deposit returned promptly . We will definitely be back!

Lovely home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Islamorada, hopefully not our last! We loved the bikes and rode them daily; an easy ride to a relaxing day at Anne's Beach and even easier ride to an abundance of adventures at Robbie's (kayak the mangroves, sunset boat rides or historic tours of nearby islands, fishing boat trips, jet skiing, dinner, drinks and of course, feeding the tarpon)! Any and all information you need to make your week memorable can be found in the "Big Blue Binder" - local attractions, dining recommendations, fishing info etc....we referenced it before making any plans! Maggie and Bill have thought of everything and are exceptional hosts. As someone said before...pack light!
