About Jennifer Miller
We are Cindy and Alan, we have been coming down to the keys for over twenty years. Once we stayed in Islamorada it became our favorite place in the keys and we started coming down here exclusively. One year we rented in Anglers Reef and that was it, we didn't go anywhere else from then on. We have five kids and nine grand-kids. We run an Equipment Rental business in Ohio, Alan is an avid fisherman and fishes Lake Erie in the summer. We are from Medina, Ohio. I like http://www.islamoradachamber.com/restaurants.cfm#.V-_L0Mndfzo as a place to see things to do and see a current calendar of events. Jennifer is a wealth of knowledge also and you can feel free to contact her regarding suggestions for eating or any other activities.
Jennifer Miller purchased this House in 2016
Why Jennifer Miller chose Islamorada
Blue Marlin House (1 of 2 sister houses available side by side see vrbo 819589) We love the layout of this unit, it gives you plenty of space to all sit down together and socialize but with four balconies you can always sneak away and read a book or just relax. The bedrooms are good size with vaulted ceilings and each comes with its own bathroom, a two suite configuration. The kitchen is nice size and gives you plenty of counter space to sit and or serve food or you can use the dining table and chairs. We like the fact that there is almost no traffic within the gate and feel comfortable letting our grand kids have a little freedom. Founders park is 2 miles north and offers a large playground, a big beautiful beach, Olympic sized pool with diving boards, toddle water park and public boat ramps. There are also many restaurants near Anglers Reef and a couple larger marinas where you can get a fishing charter or just go watch the boats come in and show off their catch. Anne's beach is at mile marker 73 and is a nice beach to hang out and have a picnic. Theater of the sea is about a mile away and offers some of the best sea life shows you will ever see and you can SWIM WITH THE DOLPHINS there!
What makes this House unique
Islamorada is the 'The Fishing Capital of the World' and it offers Great fishing in the gulf or ocean side. There are plenty of guides you can hook up with, as well as 'head boats/party boats) where you can walk on for a reasonable cost and fish the reef (just a few miles offshore). Bring your own boat or charter with a guide (dock is an additional fee) .Try your luck fishing right out front for Bonefish, Permit & Barracuda on the flats. Or check out the mangroves for Snapper and Snook or off reef for Mahi Mahi (Dolphin), Swordfish or Grouper. Enjoy the views of the blue waters; swim in the large heated pool or just relax in the surrounding lush garden area overlooking the Atlantic; take a quiet stroll through the complex; take in some sun on the private beach. Restaurants: a short walk north is Hog Heaven (a night spot) and the Island Grill; a few miles south is upscale Pierre's on the Gulf and the more casual Islamorada Fish Company next door (both are next to Worldwide Sportsman (quite an attraction) for fishing tackle, clothing, and a large indoor aquarium); also a few miles south is Holiday Isle, the Green Turtle Inn & many more eateries. Some other favorites are Ma's fish camp, Islamorada fish company, Morada Bay, Marker 88 and the famous Cheeca Lodge.Attractions: Theater of the Sea is walking distance about 1/2 mile south, where you can see a Dolphin Show and even have a Sea Lion encounter. Founders Park is less than two miles north. Feed the Tarpon at Robbies, Boat and Wave Runners rentals within walking distance.Check out www.islamoradatimes.com for more information. Also Theater of the Seas is right up the road and offers DOLPHIN SWIMS and sea lion shows and more. It is a must see attraction and if you do want to swim with the Dolphins make reservations as far in advance as you can.

Beautiful house with all the necessities!!
Great place for a relaxing vacation!
We stayed here in July with our 3 teenage kids for a family vacation. The house is beautiful and accurately represented in the photos. Very clean and well cared for. Plenty of room for a family of 5. It included use of two kayaks (one tandem and one single) and two paddle boards. The property also is well maintained and the pool is large and has plenty of seating for all. The Property Manager was very accessible and accommodating, ready with recommendations for things to do as well as restaurants in the area. She also helped us with making reservations for a charter boat fishing trip. Located close to shopping, restaurants, and marinas. A great location overall. This was our first experience using VRBO and we's stay here again if we came back.
Thank you Marianne, we appreciate your positive comments. We strive to make our units a place we would be excited to visit. Please come back and see us again,
Thank you , hope to see you again
Charming Key West style house in ocean-front village setting
Had a lovely stay at the Blue Marlin house. The gated community has a small village feel and is well kept with lovely landscaping. We had fun trying the paddle boards, enjoyed the pool immensely and visited several good restaurants during our stay. Islamorada is a good central location for visiting other keys, too.
Thank you very much Jill, we are very glad you enjoyed your time in our home. Please keep us in mind the next time you visit the Florida keys.
Great place to stay!
Our stay was amazing. The home was clean, and had everything we needed. The pool was beautiful. The bikes, paddle board and kayaks were great to have. The house was close to great restaurants and activities. Jennifer was always there for us when we had any questions, and responded immediately. Definitely would recommend this home!
We absolutely loved Blue Marlin and Angler’s Reef and cannot wait to return! Jennifer was amazing to work with and very responsive to all our questions. The house was perfect for our family of three teenage daughters, and had everything we needed: plenty of space to relax, a fully stocked kitchen to cook indoors (when we weren’t enjoying some of the wonderful nearby restaurants), comfortable bedrooms and living areas, and lovely landscaping. This is the only place we’ll consider for our next trip to the Keys.
I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at the Blue Marlin House. I hope to see you again soon.
Thanks for the compliments!
The property is very close to the Theater of the Sea. A park which has a variety of animal shows (all sea related) and you can swim with the dolphins or sea lions. Make sure you call a week or two at least ahead to book this.
We like to go down to Robbie's and feed the tarpon from the dock. It only costs a couple of bucks and its very entertaining. Also the restaurant bar there has the best bloody Marys you've ever had and a good fish sandwich too. There are vendors there to buy paintings and gifts from also.
There are a bunch of good restaurants close to the house also and you are close to Worldwide sportsman, a huge sporting goods store and they offer fishing trips out back. Also their restaurant Islamorada Fish company is very good and usually has entertainment in the evening.
