About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
The property is private and secluded, away from traffic and noise, yet is convenient to many of the best restaurants and attractions in the Keys. A variety of shopping is nearby. Sunsets over the water of Florida Bay are breathtaking. Well behaved pets are welcome, please inquire.
Bayside has a master bedroom with a king size bed and it's own bathroom. There is a second bath. There is a new queen size Murphy bed in the living room. The living room and dining area are bright and sunny. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, range and microwave, dishwasher, icemaker, coffee pot, blender, dishes and pots and pans. A barbecue is provided to grill your fresh catch. The entertainment center has a TV with cable services, a DVD player, and stereo should it rain one afternoon. A clothes washer and dryer are provided. The marina has electric service and water, and has automatic lights at night.
A boat ramp is available for boats up to 17-18 feet. Trailer parking is available. Included in the rental is admission to the Islamorada Founders Park, just a short drive north to Plantation Key where you will find an olympic size pool, tennis, ball fields, and other amenities.
You're minutes away from the best back country (bonefish, tarpon, permit, snook, redfish), blue water (sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, cobia) and reef fishing (grouper, snapper, yellowtail) in the entire Florida Keys. Fishing off of our jetty in the evening is a lot of fun for the kids. Magnificent snorkeling and scuba diving sites abound in the local area. A wide range of boating activities are available year round since our area of the bay is well protected. Sea Kayaking and canoeing along our shoreline is popular. Of course water skiing and knee-boarding are a hit with the kids. Local shopping for clothing, souvenirs, and fishing and boating needs is plentiful. Grocery stores are convenient.
There are several local attractions if you need a day out of the sun and there are several . Key West is a day-trip away.
Bayside is an unique place, and the people who visit, both owners and guests, feel very special about the property. The privacy is wonderful, the accommodations are new and clean, the property peaceful, and the access to the fishing is the best in the Keys, indisputably. We hope you will also find it as special as have we, and will add your name to the growing list who return to enjoy the most gorgeous sunsets and the best fishing and diving in the world.
Bayside generally rents for 1 week intervals, from Saturday to Saturday. If Bayside is what you are looking for, please contact us and to reserve the dates. The reservation will be confirmed upon receiving a check for $500.00. The balance of the rental costs including tax (12.5%) are due 8 weeks before arrival.

Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: WE are Linda and Al Canal. We have lived in Florida for 30 years having moved from New Jersey. We are both retired and love the Florida Keys. My husband Al recently sold his aircraft engine rebuilding business and I have retired as a manager for a Maxillofacial Surgery practice. We are co-owners with Lloyd and Rae Wruble whose information can be found with our other property, the Keys Kottage, on the same property.
Why the Owner Chose Holiday House (Islamorada, FL, USA):
We purchased this beautiful property from a friend who has moved out of town. The property is beautiful and since we are retired it will give us pleasure to provide such a beautiful sanctuary for our guests. We hope to provide the same high level of service which Bernie has provided for over 17 years. All owners are avid outdoorsmen and have a passion for fishing. What greater place than the Florida Keys to spend a vacation?
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Bayside, and the property we know as Holiday House, is a unique property unlike anything in the keys. It is small and private, yet the owners and guests who vacation here are warm and friendly. We are centrally located in the heart of Islamorada and convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, tourist attractions, marinas and fuel docks and access to the back country or the patch reefs and offshore fishing. And without a doubt this is the finest location to watch the most gorgeous sunsets over the water,........ and if you're real lucky you just might see the green flash!
