Best location in the complex. A vacation rental for View Lovers!

This accommodation is in a mature art-deco inspired building in a serene location that is close to wonderful restaurants and other things to do. You are just minutes from Old Tavernier Restaurant, the PADI certified Florida Keys Dive Center, just a short drive to downtown Islamorada, shopping, Worldwide Sportsman, Islamorada Fish Company, Founders Park, Theater of the Sea, the quaint Wild Bird Center and so much more. Rent paddle boards or kayaks (or bring your own) at PADDLE (just 3 minutes away) in nearby Casa Mar and meander your ocean waters and nearby canals. You can buy fresh local seafood at Casa Mar Fish Market and have the best dining view on your private oceanfront balcony.

Or curl up with a good book at the oceanfront clean pool or chat with other visitors. It is also fun to bike and explore adjacent neighborhoods (rent bikes or bring your own, bike storage on premises). Or why do anything at all, when you can just relax on your private oceanfront balcony with spectacular views 24/7! The balcony is open on 3 sides - so enjoy the breezes.

(If your stay does not fit our criteria, contact us. We may have flexibility.)

We provide you with everything you need in a home away from home. Included is dedicated free WiFi with router, living room has large flat screen HDTV and each bedroom has a flat screen TV and ceiling fan.

Master bedroom suite has new Simmons Beautyrest Pillow Top King size bed and the 2nd bedroom has 2 new EXTRA Long Pillow Top twin beds that convert to a comfy King bed. And no need to argue who gets the bedroom with the full ocean view because both bedrooms (and living room) have it! Included are all bed and bath linens and beach towels, Pack N Play, hair dryers, portable beach chairs and cooler, and -- private covered parking space.

The complex is NOT on US 1 so there is NO road noise! All sliders have screens so enjoy the wonderful ocean breezes.

Complex includes coin-op laundries on every floor. Keys Oceanfront condo welcomes you!

The complex lost a bit of foliage and first floor common areas will be revamped but our view on the 5th Floor is still fantastic and pool is lovely with new heaters!

About Owner

We love the beautiful peaceful location and the crystal clear waters and watching pelicans fly past the balcony, sometimes so close you feel you could almost touch them. We like watching the fishing boats leave and enter Tavernier Creek just north of us. Also love the beautiful clear starry nights.

Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Owner chose Tavernier

After looking at many condos in the Middle Keys and Upper Keys, we bought this wonderful 5th floor oceanfront end unit because of the bright open feel of the layout and wonderful panoramic views. So many condos in the Keys feel like you are in a tunnel with no side windows. The large extra window in the living room makes you feel as though you are in a home rather than a condo. We also loved that both bedrooms have a full ocean view, which is very unique, and that you can access the oceanfront balcony from both bedrooms as well as the living room. An unsuspected surprise was the privacy afforded by this property - and that the pool is situated in such a way that one doesn't feel as though in a 'fish bowl' while swimming or lounging poolside.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the wonderful sunrise and reflective sunset views and the peaceful, serene location as this condominium community is not on US 1, so there is no traffic noise. We really love that our condo is directly on the ocean with nothing between us and the wide open clear crystal blue waters. Seeing all the pelicans flying past our balcony, and watching the sea life is a fun bonus. The location is very convenient, close to many wonderful restaurants and things to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were fortunate enough to spend a week at this condo. It is all as posted and the only surprise was it was actually as advertised. Very clean, all amenities that are needed and more. Wonderful location within the building and stunning views. Owners are very easy to work with and very fast communications. Great place! Great Owners! Would definitely recommend staying here. It's a great unit. Had a wonderful stay.

Perfect sunrises!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with a location in the heart of the Keys. Plenty of local eateries and a Winn Dixie if you prefer to dine in. Kitchen is stocked with anything you could need to cook with. They even had the exact pitcher we have at our house for iced tea. The pool is awesome and never crowded. The beds are very comfy with both bedrooms having ocean views and balcony access. Other long time residents said 512 was the best one in the building. We felt at home in this condo. We did a day trip to Key West and toured Hemingway's house. Plenty to do there, if that is your style. Mostly stayed local and hit the local restaurants. Fresh fish everywhere. Plenty of water activities for the willing. On site activities include tennis and ping pong with owner supplied equipment. Really well equipped condo with the vacationer in mind. Thanks.

Amazing million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

The view from this property is absolutely amazing. Donna the owner was a pleasure to deal with. She always replied promptly to my inquiries and was flexible to my family's need. This condo was perfect for my family of four. It had everything we needed including beach chairs and toys for my little 8 year old. The furnishings in the condo is a little dated but everything is clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved the view. Let me know what's dated and we'll change it. I love shopping. Every year we purchase some new items, yet keeping the comfy Keys feeling.

A wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was exactly as pictured. Everything was in working order, the beds were comfortable, and the view was AMAZING! The condo's location in the Keys was just right, giving easy access to many different locations. The owners gave us plenty of suggestions of restaurants and activities...we used several of their suggestions and they were all great! We would definitely return again!

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two teenage boys. The condo amenities where great. We each had our own beds (no sharing) and really liked that the twin beds are extra long for my 6'1" son. Two bathrooms/showers. Condo is clean and has everything you need to enjoy your stay in the Keys. We were in the Keys to go diving (two boys got certified), it was a 3 minute drive to the Dive store, perfect.

Pool is nice.

Stores and restaurants are nearby.

Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We also really like that Florida Keys Dive is so close! And I am glad you like our conversion to extra long twin beds -- combined they make a better king bed as well. We loved having you...hope you come back for diving in the future.
