We just spent 2 months in paradise again. As a repeat customer, I can't say enough good about Sandy Paws and the owners, Chip and Stacy.

This was our second January and February of staying at the house and just as before, it was immaculate from top to bottom. If I could make only one change, it would be to never leave.

I've stayed at many places in the keys over the years and this by far is our favorite home away from home.

Perfect Getaway Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Stacy and Chip were great to work with and very responsive. The house is clean and spacious and very comfortable. It had everything we needed and more. It was a great place to work remotely. The HOA beach was one of the best beaches and great for families. A manatee hung out by the dock so that was a nice treat. Thank you Stacy and Chip for sharing your lovely home. We Hope to visit again.

A month of wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of March at Sandy Paws. The home and its environs far exceeded our expectations. We appreciated that Sandy Paws was spotlessly clean, well maintained, comfortably furnished and welcoming. We also appreciated the the abundance of household goods, everything from paper towels to charcoal for the grill. My wife and I enjoyed our time relaxing on the furnished balcony or sitting on the dock observing the wildlife.I especially enjoyed the kayak and would paddle up the canal to the Gulf of Mexico. During one of my trips, I saw a Nurse Shark in the Gulf and paddled alongside a Manitee. The private community beach with its turquoise waters was a haven for sunbathers. It was a perfect spot to observe beautiful sun sets. Four or five blocks from Sandy Paws is "Mr. Lobster." You can purchase fresh caught fish, lobster and shrimp at very reasonable prices. If you are a foodie, the abundant restaurants are worth a visit. For those who like adventure, sight seeing and recreational activities will not be disappointed. Finally, Stacy and Chip were accommodating and helpful. We will continue to build memories of Sandy Paws when we return next year.

We stayed for 6 weeks and there is absolutely nothing that could have been more perfect about the property or the owners. It was spotless when we arrived and we are already planning our next trip down.

Exceptional home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this calm and comfortable home in Islamorada 11/1/2016-1/1/2017. The house had more than enough room for two remote working adults and their two fur babies plus the occasional guest. There are two good sized bedrooms plus an office, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, dining room and living room. For outside living there is a large covered balcony with quality furniture. In all the home is well designed with modern, clean furnishings, and stocked with everything you will need - you won't even need to bring beach towels. We were extremely comfortable for the entire 2 months.

The neighborhood is attractive and quite with permanent residents on either side (no party houses next door!) and a nature preserve and canal in the back with a straight shot out to the bay. There are bikes to ride, a tandem kayak to paddle, and a scenic neighborhood beach. The popular Alice's beach is just a mile or so away as well as a fishing bridge. There is much to do without getting in a car.

Islamorada has many good restaurants, boutiques for shopping, charters for fishing/snorkeling, etc. We rarely left this area of the Keys and often kayaked or biked to our destinations.

Above all else the home exudes the good intentions and positive attitudes of the owners. Chip and Stacy were a pleasure to work with and we have nothing but great memories of our time in their very special home.
