Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Islamorada - Islamorada Paradise

Oceanfront, Private Beach, Charming 2 Bed 2 Bath Beach Cottage - Kayaks Included

Perch on high above the Ocean in this charming 2 bed 2 bath beach cottage, with expansive Ocean views everywhere.

This one of a kind home with a private beach is centrally located in a secluded area of the beautiful Island of Islamorada, surrounded by palms, pines, and lime trees, and a short distance to a great variety of restaurants well known for their fresh-from-the-dock seafood as well as ethnic dishes, diners at tiki-covered bars, dockside fish houses, gourmet beachfront cafes and secluded island bistros lit by table candles and tiki torches.

The house is fully equipped with everything you need and much more to have a fun, relaxing vacation, including coolers for short trips, a Barbeque with 2 gas tanks, 2 Kayaks for two people each, a professional foosball table, board games, brand new, extra capacity washer and dryer, wine glasses, ultra fast speed wireless Internet with excellent coverage all over the property including the private beach, etc. etc.

As you enter the property gates you will be amazed by the breath taking view of the ocean right at your footsteps, your own 100 feet private beach, and the typical Key West style House built of colorful wood and set on piers, and a porch across the full width of the house.

Watch plenty of native wildlife, bonefish swim by your 100' of white sand private beach, ospreys, herons and eagles catch their dinner.

Enjoy the ocean views, the warm breeze, and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and don’t forget to sit by the beach at night to catch countless shooting stars...

Great week escape!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in various places in the keys over the past several years. We wanted to try a new spot and so glad we did! From the moment we pulled into the house, we fell in love with the view and the amazing daily breezes under the house. We were still close enough to dive in Key Largo (we have a favorite dive op there) and see all the other sights the keys have to offer.

The house was very clean and the property (outside area-beach) seems to be cleaned weekly as well. We ate in almost every night so this was a great kitchen filled with spices and basic cleaning supplies (paper towels, trash bags, dishwasher detergent)- even though we had brought some of our own.

While we didn't watch too much tv- loved having such a nice one (and 2 others on the bedrooms) plus they have cable with on demand features.

AC in the house worked very well and the size of the house was perfect for a family of 4. The washer and dryer worked great as well....perfect to be able to wash some of our wet clothes after a week of diving!

Communication with the owner was awesome! Every email was responded to plus additional info was provided during our stay. Thank you!!!

While it is true that you can hear the road noise- we have found it hard to have a view and no road noise. The key islands tend to be so small and narrow so you will usually hear road noise. After a day of relaxing with the view and breeze you could forget about it. It really didn't bother us.

We really didn't get a chance to use the kayaks but if we had more time we would have- the tides were super low during the day plus the winds were a bit high as well. Glad they were there in case we wanted to use them.

We loved the comforts of this rental and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for opening your home for us to share in this beautiful view! We are missing sitting under the house, enjoying the breeze and watching the wildlife. Thank you!!!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and description online don't do this wonderful home justice. There's just no way to show or tell how perfect it is. The location is ideal, only minutes from Upper Matecumbe with all its history, restaurants and shopping. A short drive into the upper keys and excellent places like Key Largo. A bit of a longer drive, but so very scenic and peaceful to get to Key West where the action is. The home is very well cared for, open, clean and comfortable. The owner contacted us and made sure everything was in order. The beach was cleaned every week and kept nice and open for us to enjoy. It was so peaceful and private, we spent many nights just sitting out there watching sunsets and enjoying the breeze. The views from every room in the house are nothing short of spectacular. Kitchen was very well stocked, as was the utility room. Super new high-tech washer and dryer were great. All the TVs were Smart TV, so if you have a Netflix, Amazon or other account you can log in and watch/listen to your shows. This was by far, the best experience we've had renting a home. Thanks to Gabriel and all the support staff that make this the Perfect Place.

Great relaxing get-away week.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We loved the cottage, it was just as pictured.

The weather was great, only rain was Friday morning/afternoon.

We did some deep sea fishing, used the kayaks, and relaxed.

The view and especially the Sunsets were beautiful.

Ocean breeze made the heat more bearable.

Also visited many of the local shops and drove down to Key West.

Great place to watch the sun rise over the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house with amazing views and great fun on the fuzzball table. Perfect for an upper keys dive drip with The Key Dives shop just a few minutes away. Comfortable beds and open floor plan. Easy to go kayaking right from the house or drive the kayaks a few miles for a more adventurous outing. Not far to Marathon or a day trip to Key west
