About 💎AQUAMARINE💎 at Islamorada
AQUAMARINE is the name we gave this Precious Gem Property because of the AQUA OCEAN VIEW throughout the home and MARINE for the MARINA VIEW with your private dock located two floors below your unit. I am a licensed Florida Realtor. I have been visiting Islamorada since the age of 3, with my parents who were avid scuba divers. My husband and I loved the area so much that we brought our children to Islamorada many times while we were raising them. Recently, we bought this gem because it lives like a house with luxury resort amenities that a single family home can not provide. Bay Harbour is the newest built resort property in Islamorada. We wanted to have a vacation home on the island that means so much to us. I hope you can make similar memories using our home as your own.

Why 💎AQUAMARINE💎 at Islamorada chose Islamorada
Islamorada is widely considered the pinnacle of the Florida Keys. Islamorada is "The Sport Fishing Capital of the World" and we have had many United State Presidents vacation and sport fish here at the purple islands of Islmorada. The best Keys restaurants are located in Islamorada. Our scenic aqua and purple waters make this location top the list for the most beautiful restaurant experiences providing great food, spirits and live music. Islamorada means "purple island". Morada Bay, The Islamorada Fish Company and Atlantic Edge at The Cheeca Lodge are all beach front and barefoot elegant restaurants and are some of our favorite places to break bread and make memories.

First trip to the keys
I can’t say enough about how helpful Lenore was. She gave us so much information about the area to make our stay so enjoyable. We also enjoyed the pool. Wonderful first trip to the keys! Thanks so very much Lenore!!
Great property at great location
Property was clean, great location and had everything one would need for a stay. Communication with the owner was excellent.
Aquamarine is a true gem!
I thoroughly research vacation homes before we book, and Aquamarine caught our eye. We sent a message to Lenore to ask a few questions about the condo, and she responded right away. She was so helpful! We booked Aquamarine after speaking with Lenore and are so happy we did! We tend to be picky about where we vacation, but Aquamarine had everything we could wish for! From our arrival, I met Bob, the gentleman who oversees the maintenance of the property. He is so friendly and does an outstanding job of keeping everything pristine! My husband was thrilled with the access to the boat slip--a short, deep water canal ride to the slip. We have 28 foot boat that fit in the slip perfectly fine. Another huge plus was that we could fuel up and purchase bait just on the other side of the canal on our way out to the fishing grounds. Once we entered the unit, we were delighted to see both the ocean view and how open and airy the unit felt! Aquamarine is beautifully decorated and has a well-stocked kitchen (which was perfect since I enjoy cooking). Having a half bath in addition to the two full bathrooms was quite nice as well.
We loved the fact that the complex did not feel overcrowded at all. After some of our fishing days, we chose to grill our fresh catch. The two Weber grills located by the pool were spotless! (Bob, in fact, takes the grills apart weekly to thoroughly clean them.) Our family enjoyed a few nice dinners together at home. We also enjoyed the pool and even discovered a few pool floats near the grills for people to use. I also took advantage of the exercise room to lift weights. There was a treadmill and a few other machines in there as well. Another advantage was the storage unit on the ground level filled with anything you may need or enjoy--2 brand new bikes my boys enjoyed riding and a freezer perfect for storing our ice and bait.
I can honestly say this was the first truly relaxing family vacation we have had! (That is saying something since our boys are 13 and 16.) We were struck by how friendly and welcoming everyone was--from Lenore and her husband to both owners and renters in the condo complex. The location was close to several restaurants (The Square Grouper was our favorite) and a Publix supermarket. After a week enjoying Aquamarine, we knew we would have loved to have stayed longer. Our family foresees many happy returns to Aquamarine! Thank you, Lenore and John, for sharing your beautiful home with us!
2 weeks in paradise!
The place was just beautiful! Perfect location! Half way between Miami & Key West, making day trips so easy! Lenore was very pleasant and helpful as was Kathy & Bob, Property Managers. We'll be back!

We first stayed at Bay Harbour condos in 2004 or 2005 and this was our fifth visit to the complex. The property looks as beautiful today as it did that first visit, they do a remarkable job of keeping it maintained. We weren’t sure what effects it would show from Irma, and found really no visible sign of that storm. Talking to residents we heard the complex basically had to redo all of the landscaping and deal with some other damage, but they were able to get back to normal relatively quickly.
Aquamarine is a really nice unit and Lenore is a super responsive and helpful host. When we checked in there was a problem with the elevator and they had a crew onsite and had it fixed in less than 2 hours. The unit itself is updated and very clean and comfortable. It has all the kitchen set ups you will need. We grilled steak and lobster a couple nights over our two week stay, and the grills they have are new Weber Genesis just like the one I have at home.
The pool is really nice and rarely crowded. It’s a good mix of owners and renters and we made friends with both. Chatting up owners at the pool is a good place to get local knowledge which is freely shared.
Bay Harbour has a great marina with gas docks and bait right across the canal. It’s a two minute boat ride to the ocean via Channel 2 bridge and tons of Tarpon in the area. Which I can never catch but that’s a different story.
Overall we loved our stay at Aquamarine and when we get back to the Keys again it is my preferred spot.
Best Location in the Keys
This unit has got to be the best location in the Keys. And Lenore must be one of the best owners. Her recommendations for restaurants, boat rentals and activities were a huge help.
We had two couples for our March 2019 stay. The guys were scuba diving when they could and the ladies relaxed, explored and shopped.
The unit is on the second floor and overlooks the marina. It was well stocked with dishes, cooking supplies and even included starter supplies such as toilet paper, paper towels and coffee with filters. It is located north of Marathon Key and south of Key Largo so it was very convenient to everything.
We are looking forward to coming back.
THEATER OF THE SEA is an educational amusement park. it has Sea World style marine animal shows and you can swim with the dolphins.
BUD N' MARY's MARINA offers deep sea charter fishing. Water sport rentals and the finest water and beach front restaurants are found near our resort.
ROBBIE'S FEED THE TARPON is just up the road. Great place to hand feed fish, eat breakfast and lunch, rent paddle boards, kayaks etc... and great outdoor art fair style shopping.
MORADA BAY CAFE is one of our favorite beachfront restaurants to watch the sunset.
ISLAMORADA FISH COMPANY has a great fresh fish marketi and is another favorite beachfront restaurant.
JOHN PENNICAMP NATIONAL PARK is an underwater park for snorkeling and diving experiences.
KEY WEST is 74 miles south. It is a beautiful and easy day trip drive. Islamorada is considered to be the pinnacle of the Florida Keys. Key West is a great place to visit for a day but you will but happy to return to Islamorada.
