Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

'Ocean Dream'...This 6th floor newly renovated corner unit is ready for your arrival. Open the front door and immediately you are welcomed to a full oceanfront gorgeous view...looks like the lanai drops right off into the water from where you are standing... tiled floors throughout, new furniture and every amenity thought of. Plantation shutters on every window and access to lanai from living room and both bedrooms.

Grab the wine glass or coffee mug and head out to the fully screened lanai (bugless viewing is a must even on the 6th floor). Watch the pelicans and birds fly so close you can almost touch them.

Sit in the brand new lanai furniture and you won't want to ever leave. Well, for you fishermen you might want to try the wide array of charters located just minutes from your seat on the lanai...after all, Islamorada is 'The Fishing Capitol of the World'! Bait your line for sailfish, grouper, snapper, hogfish etc.

For you landlubbers there are many State Parks to explore & bird sanctuaries. John Pennekamp Park is 15 min ride north and Theatre of the Sea is a 10 min ride south...it is a great marine mammal adventure that let's you get up close and personal with the dolphins, sea lions & stingrays.

Wanna drink after the Dolphin show? Wander over to Holiday Isle's world famous Tiki Bar known for their Rum Runners.

There is also snorkeling, diving, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing and sunset cruises.

Do you want a relaxing evening? Head on down to Morada Bay Restaurant and plant yourself in an Adirondack chair in the sand with a cocktail, listening to island music overlooking the bay watching as the sun slips beyond the horizon.

Your 'Ocean Dream' condo beckons you back to the moon on the water as you slip off to a luxurious nights sleep on soft linens. Both bedrooms have oceanfront views, king beds (guest can be converted to twins) with full access to the lanai. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom.

Grab a beach towel (plenty provided) and head down to the heated pool or grab the tennis racquets and have a game on the oceanfront court.

Want to spend a few hours on the beach with some water toys? Founders Park is 3 miles south on the bayside with plenty to do...great beach, soccer fields, baseball, skateboard park, olympic pool, swings, marina and walking trail.

Shopping is also fun at the many boutiques up and down Rt 1...Our condo sits 1/4 mile off of Rt 1 so no NOISE at all...very quiet, peaceful location with only the occasional flapping of birds wings as they fly close enough to almost touch....I already said that!! Oh, did I mention you don't have to go very far for your groceries-supermarket 1 mile north, movie theater there as well. Supermarket has a redbox for movie rentals...you can watch on the new flat screen TV with DVD player.

Your 'Ocean Dream' has everything you need (even hairdryers and straightening iron) and fully equipped for even a gourmet cook....plenty of wine glasses if you cook with wine!! Which I always do...

The sad part is leaving, but at least there is a glass elevator so you can catch one last glimpse of the ocean before you depart. Then you will get on the phone and book 'Ocean Dream' again for your next trip to the beautiful and eclectic Florida Keys!! Hurry Back

About Beti

We live in Pennsylvania, so it is nice to have a place to go when the weather gets cold up north, even if it is just for a few days....it is easy to get to.

Beti purchased this condo in 2003

Why Beti chose Key Largo Area

Quiet, peaceful location with the most unbelievable ocean views. We love our updated unit...it is impeccably clean with tile floors throughout. We are in a good location for shopping, food stores and restaurants without having to travel far, as alot of people do in the Keys. I love being down there for the full moon as it glistens on the ocean and lights up the night. It is fun watching the birds dive for the fish and feed in the morning. We enjoy our screened in lanai, so we don't have to worry about the bugs and can leave our sliders open in cool weather. The laid back lifestyle and people are wonderful and everytime I go I totally enjoy myself. My husband loves the fishing and does morning noon and night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beti..................This note is overdue. I've been very busy trying to play catch-up after my ten beautiful days at your fantastic Condo. Once again, everything was as advertised and more! The unit literally has everything one could need for an extended stay. I hope to get back there soon. Thanks again for everything.

Another Great Stay at Ocean Dream

  • 5 of 5

We loved it so much last year that we had to go back. The view is amazing! I sat and enjoyed the view for hours during our stay. It is so quiet and peaceful. A perfect place to relax and forget about the rat race of life. We enjoyed it so much and didn't want to Leave.

Loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Beti's place. Her condo is perfect for us! The location is great, the view is fabulous, and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Beti is always easy to work with, and we appreciate her hospitality. We are sincerely grateful!

On this trip, we had an incredible time fishing with Blackfoot Charters and one our best dive trips ever with Quiescence in Key Largo.

Enjoyed the Keys but wished the condo was nicer

  • 3 of 5

The condo owner was super nice and very accommodating. Email correspondences and communications were very quick and efficient. The condo/building was built in the mid 70's and it showed its age. Both showers are desperately in need of a good cleaning and updating. Kitchen is stocked well but the cookwear needs replacing. The beds are very hard and we were all in physical pain by the end of our vacation. The advertising pictures showed kayaks and they were not included. Some other rental units in this building did include them. The property grounds and pool are very well kept and the Keys made up for the condo shortcomings.

Owner's Response: Sorry you felt that way, but I like the feedback. Never had one complaint about the beds if anything always had positive comments about them. The showers might be dated but they are clean! Water pressure great. Kayaks are not advertised and just happen to be in a picture of the pool and grounds. I do not know of any rentals that include them...they are all for personal use. Pots and pans are not dated and if so I will check and replace them. It is a rental and it does get wear and tear but I am always updating everything so it is clean and a relaxing place for my guests.

Great location, very comfortable condo, Views!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Ocean Dream, it is very well stocked and in a quiet location in a nice building. The pool was great, very clean, lots of shade, and never crowded.

Beti is great to work with, very friendly, great communication, and extremely responsive and helpful.

The only downsides are no W/D in unit, but there are some coin-op ones down the hall, and no swimming beach or even walkable beach at the complex. Beaches are scarce in the Keys, you have to drive to get to any beach or any place to walk.

Tavernier is a nice part of the Keys, though - lots to do nearby and not as crowded as Key Largo or as far as Key West.

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfect. Beti has everything ready for you............beach towels, lawn chairs, small cooler, well equipped kitchen, hair dryers in each bathroom. Laundry room is a short walk down the hallway. Convenient grocery type carts to carry groceries and luggage up to your condo on the elevator. Wonderful view of the sunrise every morning on the lanai! Great pool too!
