*** SPECIAL NOTE ***

To all of our guests and friends who have reached out to us after Hurricane Irma - THANK YOU. Our bungalow made it through the storm, and the clean up is complete. Our pool is sparkling clean (now heated!), and we've planted many new trees and shrubs. The Islamorada residents and businesses have done an amazing job of cleaning up and beautifying the island.

With warm regards,

Bill & Maggie

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, new a/c unit, 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.

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.

About Bill Adams

We are both natives of Connecticut, and we've enjoyed visiting the Keys on vacation for many years. Now we call the Keys our home.

We love spending our free time on the water - fishing, snorkeling, swimming, and exploring new places. The water colors here a magnificent, changing from light green near shore to electric blue as you venture farther out to the reef and beyond. Seeing manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, and stunning sunsets is a regular occurrence for us, and we feel blessed to be a part of it.

Bill Adams purchased this house in 2014

Why Bill Adams chose Islamorada

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 and the water. 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.

Perfect!

This cozy little bungalow was the perfect Islamorada “home” for my husband and I during our week long vacation. Our hosts were super responsive and so very helpful. The area has sooo much to offer. We are so happy that we discovered Bungalow Blue!

Comfortable, classy and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and well-appointed cottage! Meticulously clean, full amenities with functional and classy kitchen and bathroom . One of the nicest rentals we've had in the 20 years we've been coming down to the Keys!! We loved the bikes that are provided, too! Made us feel like we were kids again ;) We were very impressed by the condition of the cottage and the surrounding units (including the awesome 'private' pool) considering the damage done by hurricane Irma to the general area. Communication with the owners, Bill and Maggie, was seamless, clear and helpful. The location is great for getting to anywhere in the Middle Keys, and we took advantage of great nearby restaurants, wonderful biking and walking paths, and local beaches. We would happily recommend Bungalow Blue to any couple or small family looking to enjoy the beauty of the Florida Keys!!

Perfect Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bugalow Blue! Bill and Maggie were there for anything we needed but they did such a great job preparing us and having resources in the bungalow that we didn’t need a thing. Very nice neighbors and the pool was all ours. We spent one night away at Key West and we couldn’t wait to get back to the bugalow. We even had a full thanksgiving meal with the fully equipped kitchen. The only downside to all the memories we made was the “no-see-ums” were extremely attracted to me. Even with that I found repellent to detour them in the bugalow. We look forward through coming back again. Thanks Bill and Maggie!
