A wonderful abode with authentic "old Florida" charm. A getaway within a getaway where sunsets and water and beauty meet. This is the home of true tranquility.
We love staying at the cottage due to its peaceful setting of coconut palms, tropical plants, a large oak tree, and plenty of space to spread out. Don’t be surprised to see iguanas, a raccoon, squirrels, and water birds lounging around the property as you sip a drink on the dock and watch for manatees that sometimes visit in the canal.
Rooms are an ample size with a nice walk-in closet off the master bedroom. The king size bed is super comfortable and there’s the convenience of a desk in the master bedroom. As comfy as the inside is, we are drawn more often to the outside area and the rustle of the coconut palms. What a great place to read a book!
If you want the supreme place to relax and enjoy the “Old Florida” lifestyle, instead of a high-rise condo, this is the place for you! The owners go out of their way to make sure you’re comfortable. You hardly need a car, except to pick up groceries since the cottage is a short walk to the Lorelei, a bay-side waterfront restaurant with great seafood, plenty of outdoor seating areas, live music, and a sunset celebration every night. Other restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. With just a call, you can rent a kayak or paddle board and have it delivered. If you rent or bring your own boat, there is a very large dock area to keep it secure.
We’ve rented here multiple times and dream about it before our next chance to stay. We highly recommend it!

We had a very special and wonderful holiday in the Keys owing to your cottage, its location and comfort, the ambiance, the Lorelei, Islamorada Ale and of course THE FISHING. Catching a Sailfish was definitely a high point not to mention the Tuna, Snappers etc. etc. We will definitely return next year and are counting the days. With all due credit to Jimmy Buffet, this is a place where one can go to live happily ever after, now and then... We would recommend the venue, the cottage and of course the fishing to one and all. Thanks for EVERYTHING. Best Regards, David and Chantal
My husband and I stayed in this home for a month and it really became like home. It was very comfortable and the owner supplied almost everything we needed except our clothes. The home is located on a canal that goes right to the bay and the evening sunsets are stunning from the brand new dock. The area is teaming with wildlife and looking at the fish in the canal was like having your own private aquarium. The location in the heart of Islamorada cannot be beat! We brought our little boat and our two little dogs and had one of the best months in recent years. We also hired Captain Tim (owner) to take us on a full day charter to fish and snorkel. It was marvelous! Tim showed us several different kinds of fishing and had so many different types of bait and lures. It was a learning experience as well as a blast. The boat was very comfortable and the snorkeling at the lighthouse was some of the best we have ever done. The owners are very responsive and very nice people. Highly recommend!
Chuck and I had a great vacation. The cottage is clean, well equipped and so comfortable. Also very private. The dock is wonderful for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. We even had a few afternoons of catching fish but throwing them back. If your lucky you will get to see the manatee swim by. I did no cooking many restaurants close by, Lorellie is only a few feet away. You can see the best sunsets from there. This was the best place we have stayed in 15 years.
We have been staying here for three winters and plan to return next year. This is the most beautiful place in Islamorada. Jackie and Tim are wonderful. The cottage is in a great location, walking distance to everything in the village, and biking distance to everything else.
What a delightful cottage and yard! It brings one back to the ‘good old days’. Beautiful old gnarly trees and various vegetation ornament the yard. The 1940’s cottage has been updated, but maintains the feel of the cottages I grew up visiting in Florida. Jackie and Tim are wonderful to deal with, great communication, lovely people. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with hand/dishwasher/washer soaps, TP, and hand/bath/beach/kitchen towels. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. There were lovely touches throughout the cottage (pen and paper on the desk in the bedroom, Islamorada books/pamphlets in the living room). We enjoyed viewing the iguanas, woodpecker, raccoon, manatee, sea gulls and pelicans.
Walking distance to many restaurants, shops etc. Great location. We also provide charter fishing , diving and spearfishing trips as well as wakeboard instruction. Please contact thru site for more info.
