About the property

Sleeps 6, Walking Distance To Marina & Nightlife

Bay Street is within walking distance to The Worldwide Sportsman, The Green Turtle, Morada Bay and Pierre's. Lots of shops are nearby, too! There is room in the driveway for your boat or just walk across the street to the marina where lots of Captains are eager to show you the way of life in Islamorada...easy, relaxed and casual. Walk to the monthly art show and all the local galleries/restaurants!

We had very little Irma damage at the house and Islamorada is getting back to perfect a lot faster than expected. Please come down to fish, dine and relax in the tropics.

About Patricia

Islamorada is a fisherman's dream balanced with great restaurants and local culture. The walls of the house are covered with photographs from Kim's time in Africa as well as South and Central America and the Everglades.

Patricia purchased this house in 1999

Why Patricia chose Islamorada

Bay Street is an oasis for those looking to escape and relax. World-class fishing, restaurants, nightlife, live music and Full Moon Parties on the beach at Morada Bay, Pierre's, Lorelei's, eco-tours thru the mangroves, diving at Bud and Mary's, boating, swimming with dolphins at the Theatre of the Sea, Islamorada Fish Company Market and Restaurant, art galleries and shopping...all within walking distance. Founders Park offers all kinds of sporting and recreational activities for families including an Olympic-sized pool and nice bayside beach. The Keys Shuttle runs from Fort Lauderdale and Miami Airports and will drop you off at the house. Most activities are within biking or walking distance although a car is recommended if you want to explore the other Keys. Key West is about an hour and 15 minutes south on the most scenic route you can imagine. Paradise FOUND! And we are within walking distance to The Cheeca Lodge and The Islander so overflow guests from events are welcome to stay at our home.

Awesome January!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home away from home. Everything was absolutely perfect, the owner couldn't have been more accommodating. The minute we stepped in the house it felt like home, neat and clean with a welcoming feel. The porch is awesome and where you can spend countless hours relaxing. The location cannot be beat!!! Walk to countless restaurants, the art district and shopping. We highly recommend this vacation home.

Making Morada Memories I

  • 5 of 5

We wanted an adventure, family time w/ our college sons & their friends, tradiitional Christmas Eve church services, easy accessibility for my 86 yr old mom, a marina so our sons could "boat taxi" w/ friends, restaurants/entertainment within walking distance AND a well-equipped kitchen. This home exceeded my expectations and met our every need! We were able to relax & read on the screened porch and entertain my sister's family in the spacious den. My husband & I took long walks most mornings, my mom would cook a big breakfast for her "boys", and the boys would walk to the marina. Their college friends would take them by boat to many points of interest. This was a perfect vacation for us & hope to return next year. The owner made every effort to make her VRBO "our" home away from home!

Superior Rental

  • 5 of 5

This home is an ideal vacation spot for any family or group. We were fishing out of a couple areas and it was a perfect spot as Islamorada is the Fishing Capital. It is walking distance to the best seafood in the keys, Islamorada Fish Company and close to one of the nicest resorts that you can take advantage of. It was so well stocked with everything you would ever need that we didn't have a lot of room for food, so we had to eat out. The most gracious hostess, who checks up to make sure all is going well and very much appreciated. Ideal spot for tourist activity throughout the keys. Do not leave without visiting the Bass Pro Shop across the street. Thanks again for making our fall trip so great!

Perfect Islamorada Home

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our stay at this wonderful house. Though the beautiful pictures are accurate, they do not do the property justice. The house was beautifully furnished, well maintained, clean and well stocked. The owner was more than helpful with fun, and accurate information that made our stay even better. The central location on Islamorada makes it perfect for daily trips for water excursions, sightseeing, or even a trip to Key West. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely stay at this property again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words, Leela. I'm glad that you had that time for your family to relax. If you have any fishing photos that I can post, just send them along and I'll get them on the site asap. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Patty

cozy key cottage

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I found this spot to be a perfect alternative to the busy Key West scene. There was everything we needed right here and Key West was just a short drive away.

We found the house to be perfectly comfortable and clean. No problems or issues at all! We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

A Real Find!!

  • 5 of 5

In all our previous VRBO experiences, we have NEVER been as pleased as we were with the attention and care the owner paid to insure our comfort. She was immediately responsive when there was an issue or question and sincerely wanted us to enjoy our time away from the gruesome winter up north. Her home was perfect for us…immaculately clean, extremely inviting and wonderfully decorated. Patty even had the porch screened in prior to our stay which enhanced the property that much more. The location is ideal with many restaurants and shops within a short walking instance; while we were there we enjoyed two events that occurred a block away ….a tasty chili cook-off competition and an art gallery walk. The home was well stocked with all basic needs; Patty even greeted us with wonderful goodies upon our arrival. . .an unexpected but appreciated treat! This will be our Keys home for future get-aways; it doesn't get any better than this!!!
