About Cindy Rondino

We live in the Fort Lauderdale area with our two teenage sons. We love weekend getaways to the Keys, spending time with our boys.

Cindy Rondino purchased this villa in 2014

Why Cindy Rondino chose Upper Florida Keys

We loved the open water views, three bedrooms on one level, vaulted ceilings and rustic feel of this home.

What makes this villa unique

This home is perfect for boaters being located on deepwater on the bayside with easy access to the ocean. It is also great for landlubbers, with the private beach and easy access to many tourist attractions.

The house was perfect, very well kept! Nice distance too many things, great fresh sea food place a few blocks away. The private beach it amazing, some shallow spots to put some chairs in and just relax! We had a rental car and used the taxi, taxi was $ approx $30 to most spots. This house is in a very friendly, nice neighborhood.

Perfect Mini Vacation.......Will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 3 couples found this vacation home to be wonderful! It had plenty of space for 6 adults with very comfy beds, linens, lots of bath & beach towels, and fun beach decor. Kitchen fully equipped if you wished to cook. Lots of great restaurants just a short drive away. We all loved the water view from the outdoor upper patio area. Great place for your morning coffee! The private beach is gorgeous & very close. Wished we had one more day to spend more time beaching it! The owner was so accommodating and very easy to communicate with, always a very prompt response. No negatives, only positives on this great rental, and hope to come back again next Oct!!

Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights. Our party was 4 adults and 4 children and we had plenty of room. The kids enjoyed the dock and fishing. The private beach was perfect. This house is located close to a lot of local attractions. This home was also fully furnished and came with everything we needed in the kitchen. The property owner was very accommodating and made our stay very easy. I would highly recommend this vacation spot to anyone with a family. Will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Our family had such a great time in this house. Location was wonderful. Watching sunsets and sunrises from deck. We saw a manayee a turtle and a dolphin. We rented bikes and a kayak. Bike trail right there us access ti beach where we hung out and snorkeled. Be sure and stop at grocery store. One on key west and one in marathon. August is warm but we dove with kwy dives and stayed in the water. Loved it.

I highly recommend this place! We stayed here with our young children and had a great time! The house was perfect and the owners were great! The house was very clean and the beds were really comfy. The kids enjoyed playing darts upstairs. We grilled a lot while the kids fished from the dock. The best thing about this place....the beach!! It's absolutely beautiful! When they say private, they mean private! There were times during the week when we had the whole beach to ourselves. During the weekend, there were maybe 1-2 more families there at most. We would eat a picnic lunch under the tiki pavilions, soak up the sun, swim and play in the sand! Very peaceful! We would love to visit Islamorada again, and when we do, this'll be the only place we will stay!! I miss it already ;)
