If you are looking for tranquility, Alamar by the Bay is the place. It's a great escape from the busy world around us. The Villa is spacious, well equipped, comfortable and very clean. Very convenient to Pennecamp, dive shops, the greenway, stores and restaurants. And the views are breath taking! Amenities such as grills, kayaks, outside tables and chairs, and beach towels make for a relaxing vacation.

Paradise is staying at Alamar's Villa on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

If paradise is having all your needs met in a beautiful setting right on the water, in a beautifully decorated , really luxurious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house, then you will be totally happy at the Villa, one of the 3 houses at Alamar on the Bay. Except its not like renting ; staying in the Villa is like staying at the guest house of good friends. Because Al and Martha also have a carpet and tile store, the house is decorated with the best quality materials. This is a house you would be glad to live in, spacious with lots of closets in a beautifully natural setting, even trees that encourage butterflies.

The photos of the house and its setting are actually totally accurate.

The bathrooms and towels , the bedrooms and linens are all color coordinated. There is a great covered deck off the kitchen where you can eat and relax. In their description of amenities they described a hot tub, out door grill, fishing tackle as well as kayaks and a 100 ft. dock. And, though I don't think Martha and Al really had anything to do with it there WERE lots of fish and we caught quite a few right off that dock while watching the sunset, and sipping our sundowners.

We were totally surprised and delighted to find all the amenities listed were really there, and in great shape ! We have rented houses for years and this is the FIRST time everything promised was actually beyond our expectations.

And both Martha and Al were around and always glad to help, and address any concerns we had, and make us feel welcome.

A little paradise at Key Largo

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay here. A great place to relax, watch the sunsets, see the manatee swim by the dock and take pictures of the flowers, birds and butterflies. The ground level home is equipped with even beach towels. We will be back.

Serenity Now!

  • 5 of 5

What an EXCEPTIONAL place! There are two places in the world where I can truly relax; this is one of them.

The house has everything a person needs for a wonderful vacation. And when you step out of your door, you have the bay to swim, snorkel, and fish. While snorkeling at the dock, we saw hermit crabs, blue crabs, hugh lobsters, starfish, sponges, sea anemones, barricudas, and many types of other fish.

Our boys, ages 10 and 12, love this place! They spent hours in the water snorkeling and catching sea creatures.

Al and Martha are wonderful hosts and are always willing to chat. They are an excellent resource for information about Key Largo.

If you want the ultimate vacation, this is the place. This was our second time, and I wish I was already back there now.
