About the property

Completely updated 2 bedroom home with pool, bikes & Wi-Fi.

To all of our guests who have posted reviews: Thank you!

We are very grateful to all of you for taking the time to post such wonderful reviews. We work very hard to provide a comfortable "home away from home" for our visitors to the Keys, and your kind words are very rewarding to read.

This recently renovated and adorable vacation home is clean and modern, and in the perfect location to experience everything that Islamorada has to offer. Fishing, diving, biking, boating, shopping and a multitude of dining options just to name a few. We have prepared an extensive listing of area restaurants and activities for our guests to enjoy.

This little piece of paradise is located on Islamorada's southernmost of four Islands called Lower Matecumbe Key, just on the outskirts of the main village of Islamorada. When you cross the Tea Table Key bridge, you'll leave commerce behind and experience that first real tropical 'Keys' feel. Bright blue skies surrounded by blue-green water on both sides of the road, with palm trees and sea birds everywhere you look. The air is warm, and with so little light at night, the stars seem to sparkle brighter here than anywhere else on earth. It is truly a special place to experience.

Nestled among mature palms, 'Bungalow Blue' is a 525 square ft stand-alone condo that has been completely updated, and awaits your arrival. Best suited for one couple or two, this home has new furniture, stainless appliances, granite counter tops, new wood floors, a brand new washer/dryer, and two bedrooms, each with very comfortable queen-sized beds and flat screen TVs.

The house is in a private association of only 7 tropical villas where the grounds are impeccably maintained. Enjoy at no added charge: a sparkling private pool (shared by only 6 other condos) your own gas grill, 2 beach cruiser bicycles, free Wi-Fi, and a private boat ramp. Your rental agreement also gives you free access to Founders Park with a private beach, tennis courts, Olympic sized pool and more..

This home is located on a quiet street in a peaceful neighborhood where you can rest comfortably and quietly after a long day of Islamorada adventures. If you prefer clean and quiet over big and busy, you are certain to love this little place, and you might just find it hard to leave!

Sorry, no pets.

ABOUT ISLAMORADA

(from the Islamorada Chamber of Commerce)

Islamorada is known as the 'Sportfishing Capital of the World' and rumor has it that we also host a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world. This perfect family vacation destination offers something to do in, under, above or near the water 24 hours a day. The aqua blue waters surrounding our village of islands provide fantastic views from every bridge and waterfront resort, restaurant and home.

The name Islamorada is frequently translated from Spanish as 'purple isles.'

In addition to fishing, the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay offer adventures in diving, snorkeling, para sailing, wind-surfing, kayaking, boat racing and a variety of nature excursions like hand-feeding giant silver tarpon. Ever since the days of famous authors and sportsmen like Ernest Hemingway and Zane Grey, our area has attracted outdoor competitors -- and every month offers a wide range of fishing tournaments, races and other sporting challenges.

The four islands of Islamorada also offer numerous tranquil spots to relax under the sun's glorious golden rays. Enjoy a beachfront cocktail, sunset cruise or spend the day shopping at one of the areas unique shops or galleries. Once you are relaxed, the finest in dining awaits to satisfy the tastes of every member of your family.

With an area history spanning more than 3,000 years and an active chamber with over 500 memberships, Islamorada is the premier location for inquisitive visitors and commerce to merge.

About Bill Adams

We are both natives of Connecticut where we currently live, and we love to spend time in the Florida Keys!

Bill Adams purchased this house in 2014

Why Bill Adams chose Upper Florida Keys

Buying this property was a dream come true for us. The Florida Keys is a very special place for it's tropical air and laid back vibe. Time slips away when we're here as we forget about the business of our lives and just relax to the pace of island time. Bungalow Blue may seem a bit small to some, but it has everything we need, and doesn't lack a thing. After all, the best thing about the Keys is being outside enjoying the weather. We feel very fortunate to be the owners of this special place, and are happy to be able to share it with our guests.

What makes this house unique

For us, Islamorada is truly the best of all the keys. The fishing is exceptional, the shallow water kayaking is off the chart, walking & biking is safe, there are more dining and shopping options here than in the lower keys, and it's a pleasant ride from the airports of Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bill,

We just wanted you both to know that we had a great time in the keys at your place. It was our 20th anniversary get away. Bungalow Blue was perfect. You all have a really enjoyable place. Thank you for making it available to us.

Wonderful cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just completed our week long stay at Blue Bungalow in Islamorada. The cottage is wonderful! It is decorated with great attention to detail and is well-stocked with kitchen supplies, pool towels, and his/her beach cruiser bikes. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. We had the pool that is available for all 6 cottages in the community to ourselves each time we visited it. The cottage's location in Islamorada is approximately mid-way in the Keys which makes for an easy drive to Key Largo or Key West for a day trip. The owners provide a very nice notebook with comprehensive information on local activities and sites to see in the Keys. We highly recommend this property for a stay in the amazing Florida Keys!

Wonderful Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get. Bill and Maggie have done an excellent job in Bungalow Blue.

We traveled with an 8 year old boy who enjoyed going fishing from the bridges, fishing on a party boat based out of Marathon and some local Aquariums. There are bikes provided for adults, we rented a bike for our son for the week. As stated in previous reviews we had the pool to ourselves the entire week we were around. The neighbors were very friendly and never got in the way. I would highly recommend staying here. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Great Everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week before Christmas here as our gift to each other this year. It was central to everything we wanted to do. The area watersports were unbelievable. The paddle out to Indian Key was amazing. The restaurant suggestions in the book provided by the host were right on point. The added elements of a pool, washer/dryer, bikes and a grill were just icing on the cake. I would definitely come back here. Great place at a reasonable rate. Thanks so much for having this wonderful bungalow available. Happy Holidays!

PACK LIGHT FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP TO PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

This tastefully appointed house is just what the doctor ordered for the perfect Keys getaway.

THE LOCATION - The house is located on Lower Matacumbe Key, part of the Islamorada community. At no time are you more than a ten minute drive to outstanding dining. Be it a High End restaurant or a dive bar, and everything in between (we tried them all). Fresh Fish! Sunsets!! Key Lime Pie!!! Plan to pack on the pounds during this trip.

We “burned” one of the seven nights on a trip to Key West. Less than a 2 hour drive, with a little traffic.

There are several “family” related activities nearby. We did not partake.

THE HOUSE – What you see is what you get. The photos are exactly what the place looks like. Spotless! My house should be so clean. And set up with everything you need for the perfect relaxing vacation. Plastic tumblers for poolside cocktails. Fully stocked kitchen. Bath and pool towels. The works.

Speaking of the pool…. GREAT. As stated in the other reviews, we had the pool to ourselves during the entire week. You wouldn’t think this to be the case, but it was. We found the neighbors to be friendly and unobtrusive.

THE OWNERS - Bill & Maggie were great. You ask a question? They answer it. Other than that, completely transparent.

UNDERESTIMATED PERKS - Washer/Dryer (As I said before – PACK LIGHT).

TIPS – Purchase your adult beverage, mix, coffee, cream, etc… up in Largo, on the way down. Once you get to Islamorada, OUCH!!! IF NEEDED, there is a little market up the street that’s OK. For little things,

PACK A LITTLE – Little laundry soaps. Sun Block.
