Overview

About the property

Welcome to this recently renovated and spacious first floor two bedroom, two bath corner unit condo located on the Dolphin golf course at exclusive Ocean Reef, a private Club in tropical Key Largo, Florida. All rooms look out over the lake to the Clubhouse and the 9th hole island green. There is a pool in the condo association that is less than a 5 minute walk from unit.

Note that Ocean Reef is a private club and we only rent to Members and sponsored guests. Please only use the automatic booking option if you state in the request if you are a Member of Ocean Reef or name your sponsor.

The master bedroom includes a king size bed, 24 inch flat screen TV and private bathroom with" his and her "sinks and a walk in closet. The 2nd bedroom has two queen beds, a 24 inch flat screen TV and the bedroom connects to a bathroom, complete with a separate vanity area with a sink and sea glass tile counter top. In the full bath section there is a lovely sink and full size bath tub and shower. This configuration allows several children or adults to get ready comfortably before heading out for the evening.

The living room has a 60 inch flat screen TV and opens into a private corner oriented screened in porch that looks out over a lake to the Dolphin's 9th island green, the Clubhouse and the 18th green. For convenience the front hall closet contains full size front loader washer and dryer and extra closet space.

The secluded setting of the Club makes it – by today’s standards – a worry-free world. Ocean Reef is surrounded by water on three sides and a 24 hour manned gate on the fourth. Only members and invited guests are admitted through the Front Gate, into the airport or into the canals. For this reason, the U.S. Secret Service has called Ocean Reef one of the most secure communities in the United States. There are many ways to get to Ocean Reef. It is just 55 miles south of Miami International Airport, 80 miles south of the Ft. Lauderdale International airport for those arriving by commercial carriers and car. There is a 4,000-foot airstrip which allows members to land their own aircraft or arrive by chartered aircraft. If arriving by boat, Ocean Reef is just 28 nautical miles south of Miami.

Ocean Reef offers an abundance of amenities and services inside its gates, all of which are easily accessible from the condo by a short walk, golf cart or bicycle. Onsite recreational facilities include two 18-hole championship golf courses, eighteen clay tennis courts, tennis facility offering lessons, clinics and round-robin tournaments, pickleball, two croquet courts and lawn bowling. A luxurious 175-slip marina hosts some of the finest yachts in the world. Deep-sea, coral reef bottom and back country fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving trips, glass-bottom boat tours and sunset cruises are available through the marina. Guests also enjoy Buccaneer Island which is the center of fun at Ocean Reef and offers a wide array of activities everyday. There is an Olympic-size and a large family pool , swimming lanes, Jacuzzi, 10 acres of white sandy beach and salt water lagoon, all which are connected to beach volleyball, children's swing set and jungle gym. There is a cultural center that offers recent movies and live performances from a wide array of music genres. The new state of the art fitness facility opened in December 2012 which includes a full-service Spa and Salon and an outdoor pool for a variety of aqua classes and lap pool swimming. There is a quaint fishing village offering an array of boutiques and eateries which include Vineyard Vines, Orvis, Ocean Reef sSignature Shop, Raw Bar and my kids favorite Reef Treats!

I hope that you can come and enjoy all that The Ocean Reef has to offer and stay at our wonderful condo!

We only rent to Members and sponsored guests. Please only use the automatic booking option if you state in the request if you are a Member of Ocean Reef or name your sponsor. Thank you!

About Maria Wardwell

We have been coming to Ocean Reef for over 20 years . We are from the Boston Area and love the ease of access of Ocean Reef and all the activities for adults and children.

Maria Wardwell purchased this condo in 2015

Why Maria Wardwell chose Ocean Reef Club

We have looked at many properties and fell in love with the layout and views of the this spacious 2 bedroom 1st floor condo. We walk out the back porch to the golf club house and practice green and enjoy the wild life on the lake that looks out to the 9th island green. The Fairway Lakes pool is a quiet alternative to Buccaneer Island activity.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, private , 1st floor corner with great views and a screened in porch.

Amazing Experience and Gorgeous Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo was bright, well-equipped, and beautiful. It was stocked with luxurious amentities and had everything you could think that you would ever need. This was the cleanest and most accomodating property we've stayed in during our travels! The location was incredible and we had the heated pool to ourselves every evening. Maria showed us much kindness and generosity as we had to reschedule due to family circumstances and she couldn't have been more responsive and thoughtful. Her onsite manager was so helpful and a wonderful, friendly person there to help us with everything we needed. I wish I could provide more than five stars. We had our three year old daughter with us and she loved going to the pond each morning and playing on the lawn. Thank you for everything, Maria!

Fabulous! Clean and all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Condominium is located conveniently near shopping, Restaurants and buccaneer island. If we felt like dining in and cook in the kitchen was stocked very well with all the utensils you need to make a gourmet meal. The condo has a beautiful south east exposure overlooking the golf course, and lake, with spectacular breezes at all times. We enjoyed many meals and morning coffee out on the patio. This condo had all the comforts and luxury of home. We truly enjoyed our stay.

My favorite ORC rental!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo! Loved staying here, gorgeous view, beautifully decorated. Can’t wait to stay here again. The only thing that could be added to this condo would be a grill because it is hard to drag yourself off the porch to go to dinner!

Location! Organization! Functionality! Representation!

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at this unit in Fairway Lakes and we LOVE it. First of all, Maria is delightful to work with and is eager to make your stay the best it can be. The condo truly has everything you need from a very-well stocked kitchen and dining area! All the pots, pans, place settings, containers, dishes, utensils, and more! The layout is great for gathering and then separating for peace and quiet. Bedrooms are great, bathrooms are great, and the view of the golf course is at least 180°. The condo was CLEAN and very organized both times I stayed. The location is nearly center of ORC and everything available - very convenient. Overall this unit is a perfect representation of our beloved Ocean Reef Club!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. It was so clean!!! Cleanest place I’ve rented at the reef yet. Additionally, the condo was very well stocked if you like to cook. Nice pots and pans, plenty of bakeware, dishes, and matching wine glasses. We will definitely be back.

Great stay, responsive owner, highly recommend FL48A!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this unit on June 16-23, 2018. It was terrific. The owner, Maria, was unbelievably responsive over a period of months leading up to our visit, helping us work out a couple of kinks in planning (none of which were due to her). Normal response time to an email was <24 hours. We appreciated her direct and clear information.

Wife and kids arrived before me and were met by Bob, the building manager, who was also terrific. Gave them the lay of the land, answered questions, very friendly. Bob responded quickly to the 1-2 texts we had for other questions during the week.

Condo itself is in great condition. Pretty view of the golf course, extremely well located relative to the main hotel/pool. We rented a golf cart (easy to do at the front desk) but also walked back and forth a number of times to the Beach Bar/Main desk. I'd call it a 5-7 minute walk. Easy! We also recommend renting bikes for at least a couple of hours. Fun to ride around and see all the houses/boats.

One nice thing about the condo is that there are a number of thoughtful additions that make life easier for a traveler. Lots of towels, some laundry detergent, a few packets of sweetener for our coffee (when we forgot to buy some). Feels like you are staying at your friend's place.

Everything works, everything is clean, great location, responsive owners. We will definitely look for an opportunity to return!!

BTW.... it is easy to focus on proximity to the main pools and restaurants. However, it is also important to realize that the condo development itself has a delightful pool just 100 yards from this unit. If you are looking for a bit of a quieter spot (no one else there when we were), this is terrific! No amenities (other than a clean bathroom) but lots of quiet. My wife loved the salt water pool as well! Something to consider.
