About Steven and Kathy
We were born and grew up in Southern California. We were very fortunate to enjoy both mountain, river and oceanside activities. We now live in the Florida Keys. We love sunsets. Our goal was to be able to retire with a mountain home and a oceanside home. "Sunset Reef" is our Islamorada residence with spectacular sunset views. We purchased the property in 1994. We completed building our "home" in 2006. We also have 2 other Islamorada vacation rentals, Snapper House in Bonefish Bay (www.vrbo.com/745651) and Sunrise Haven (www.vrbo.com/1174114). We also have a Park City, Utah, vacation rental home, Sunset Lodge (www.vrbo.com/206330), with equally fantastic sunset views. We are blessed in life with great family and good friends. The photo shows the result of another day on the water and the freshest fish for dinner.
Steven and Kathy purchased this house in 1994
Why Steven and Kathy chose Islamorada
We have lived in the South Florida area since 1977. We raised our two children and spent our careers here. We now have our granddaughter here. We have always enjoyed fishing, lobstering, sailing, motor boating and water sports activities since our youth in Southern California. We purchased our first Florida Keys property in Islamorada in 1994. There are many activities to see and do in the Keys. The location is perfect for outdoor minded people like us.
What makes this house unique
We fell in love with the Florida Keys when we arrived in the area in 1977. When our children were young we sailed the Keys island chain and the Bahamas in our Morgan Out Island. Now we enjoy motor boating activities from off shore fishing to back country fishing to lobstering. Matecumbe Bight is a safe and kid friendly bay area. We enjoy kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling off of the shoreline to catch lobster for dinner and easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay and the Everglades for fishing. The shoreline allows for all kinds of water sports activities. There is the hammock for relaxing and nice shade area to sit and read a good book while enjoying the fabulous bay views. The sunset views are incredible and we like the wood burning fire pit in the cool winter evenings. We enjoy music and have a nice stereo system with speakers in a number of the rooms in Sunset Reef, on the patio/pool/spa deck and the upstairs decks. The pool area has lounges for sunning and sitting areas. There are many ways to relax at Sunset Reef. If you are interested in leaving Sunset Reef, downtown Islamorada is just 5 - 10 minutes up the Overseas Highway with many fine restaurants, shopping, art galleries and the Bass Pro Shops World Wide Sportsman facility and marina.
