Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Islamorada - Keys Paradise

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Having a beautiful water view of Matecumbe Bight and Florida Bay, with Ocean views from the front, this recently updated second floor condo, in a small building, is our paradise!

Spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bath has open floor plan, with great water view (and sunsets) from living room and bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything - including coffee maker, microwave oven, stove, full refrigerator, and dishwasher.

Coin operated washer and dryers are available downstairs in the garage parking area.

The Bedroom features a fantastic Sealy Pillow-top, king sized bed. There are televisions in the living room and bedroom including a High Def. LCD in the living room. A queen sized futon easily pulls out to make more sleeping area. In addition, there is high speed broadband service, and cable television. There is a small collection of VCR and DVDs to watch and some books available for light reading on those rainy days.

There are sandy beaches, on beach side and ocean side, with dockage for a boat to 24 feet. There is a Tiki Hut, fish cleaning station, and outside cooking grill on beach. We also have a 2 person Kayak and 2 beach cruisers available to our renters. We have tried to provide it all for what might be the most relaxing vacation ever.

Located at mile marker 75 in Islamorada's Lower Matecombe Key, you are just minutes away from great Keys dining and fishing, and 75 miles from historical Key West. Boat rentals and diving or snorkeling trips to the reef are also available.

About Lisa and Stephen Bosenberg

The owners reside in Jacksonville Florida.

Lisa and Stephen Bosenberg purchased this condo in 2009

Why Lisa and Stephen Bosenberg chose Upper Florida Keys

This property has all you could want in an Island getaway. We have beautiful sunsets, ocean and bay views, a beach and a tiki bar for hanging out.

What makes this condo unique

Islamorada living has got to be the most peaceful on earth. It is a quaint but quiet village that provides some of the world's best fishing and diving. However being centrally located between Miami and Key West, you are never too far away from the action.

Beautiful condo in a fabulous area

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Lisa and Steve's home in Islamorada. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our 8 day stay. The kitchen is beautiful and the one bedroom condo was spacious. Thank you so much Steve and Lisa for offering your home to us. The views of the water from the private balcony were spectacular. We own a water view home in California, and still never grew bored of looking out of your home. We hope to go back soon!

Super FL Keys condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable condo in Islamorada, well furnished with all you need for a most pleasant stay. Good restaurants nearby and local Trading Post well stocked with items for in house meal preparation. Condo was very clean and detailed information provided by the owners was much appreciated. Best lunch was at the Beach Cafe at Morada Bay.

Perfect little get away

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place because of the reasonable rates and all the amenities (bike, kayak, dock) so, many in fact we didn't use them all. It was nice to not have to pay extra money to kayak or bike around. The condo itself was centrally located between all the islands and a drive to either Key West or the Everglades was definitely reasonable. The view off the back patio was so relaxing and tranquil and the inside was very nice as well. I really couldn't ask for more. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, who is considering a vacation in the Keys.

Very comfortable and conveniently located condo

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to be in the middle of the action, this would not be the place for you. OTOH, the Keys may not have been your best choice for a vacation destination, either.

My kids (19 and 20 years old) and I were looking for a place to stay while we were diving out of Key Dives in Islamorada. This condo looked perfect. It was about 6 minutes from the dive shop/boat which is why we picked the location.

I have to admit, we weren't looking for much more than a place to have breakfast and sleep. We were very pleasantly surprised when we got to the condo. It has been well maintained. The condo and all of the furnishings were clean and in great shape. We didn't do any cooking, but there were plenty of pots and pans and dishes, again, all in great condition.

There is a nice balcony overlooking a common area where you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and/or a island beverage in the evening. Since it is facing Westward, you get a nice sunset view.

Lisa and Steve were quick to respond to communications and were made sure we had everything we needed to get there, get in and be comfortable.

Overall, just an excellent experience.

What's not to like??

  • 5 of 5


Unit -great

owners- terrific

We stayed the week of Christmas 2015 and I guess we liked it because we immediately booked the week of Christmas 2016!

I think this is called a no-brainer since you can absolutely not go wrong staying here (except for Christmas) that is ours

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was the good reviews that sealed the deal when we booked this condo. And every word is true. The condo was everything we hoped for and more. It was like being at home. It had everything we could have possibly needed. It was the perfect location for site seeing in both directions in the Keys. We had a great time. Thank you Steve and Lisa.
