Went to Islamorada to celebrate my birthday with friends. We laugh and describe that when we pulled up in our 3 car caravan that we all got put in awe like we just arrived at Jurrasic Park. We ran up like school girls to unlock the door and check put our island palace for the week. Birthday Bubbles from Michele were waiting for us, so we all grabbed a glass and headed for the top deck. And hour later we realized we hadn't unpacked the cars, when we got there we also realized we were so excited that EVERY SINGLE car door was wide open! Ha ha
The house in impeccably maintained with anything and everything you could possibly need. I'm a Catering Director and there were so many goodies that we had a beautiful dinner with a fully set table, make sure you snoop to find the good stuff!
A private sandy beach(which you dont find often in the Keys, spans the whole backside of the house and a huge pool and deck (where we spent most of the time) has enough room for a great BBQ and lounging room for all.
If the beds could've fit in our luggage, they would've been packed! I scoffed at my own bed when I got home. And make sure everyone gets a chance to shower in the upstairs master, sharing is caring. It's too nice not too!
Last.....make sure you get up for Sunrise, get a cup of coffee, and sit on a rocker on the back porch. Be careful though hours may go by while the ocean keeps you calmly tranced!
Enjoy, we know we did, and we will definitely be back!!!
Had a fun 7 night stay at this almost perfect beach house. There are a few things that were missing that would have made this a 5* review.
There were very few pots and pans. This made it a challenge to cook for 4 people. You definitely need a large pot for cooking pasta. A few other things that were not provided... Garbage bags, plastic wrap and paper goods. For what you charge... Provide these items. It doesn't cost a lot and it's a small things that makes a stay unforgettable. Seriously... No garbage bags provided for a 7 night stay? It seemed a bit "cheap" to not provide something like this. Again... Something small but it adds up. I suppose if you are relatively "local" and driving here... Not a big deal as you can plan ahead. If you are flying in... Who wants to go buy all of these things and have a bunch of stuff left over? We did leave a lot of our leftovers behind for the next guest.
The layout of the house is great for families and couples. A lot of privacy. The pool is excellent... A lot deeper than we expected. The setting is perfect!
We hope to come back someday. Hopefully we won't need to bring garbage bags and paper goods. 😉
