About Bill & Maggie
We are both natives of Connecticut, and we've enjoyed visiting the Keys on vacation for many years. We love spending our free time on the water - fishing, snorkeling, swimming, and exploring new places. The water colors here a magnificent, changing from light green near shore to electric blue as you venture farther out to the reef and beyond. Seeing manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, and stunning sunsets is a regular occurrence for us, and we feel blessed to be a part of it.
Bill & Maggie purchased this House in 2014
Why Bill & Maggie chose Islamorada
We could never find the perfect property to rent when we visited the Keys, and the best ones were always booked, so we decided to buy a place of our own. Buying this property was a dream come true for us, and a labor of love. We made many improvements initially, and we continue to do so, wanting to be sure that our guests have a place to stay that is comfortable, clean, and visually pleasing. We've done much of the work ourselves - repairs, painting, landscaping, and furnishing this little home. We even built the picnic table and corn hole set ourselves :-) Every item inside this house has been carefully selected - bedding, kitchenware, furniture, fixtures, and artwork. Providing everything that our guests might need, but without clutter, is our focus.
What makes this House unique
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 and the water. We feel very fortunate to be the owners of this special place, and are happy to be able to share it with our guests. 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.

Cute & Relaxing Bungalow
Bungalow blue was such a treat for us to stay in during our wedding & honeymoon to Islamorada. The location is perfect. Lower Matecumbe key is not as busy as most of Islamorada but it's close (10 minute drive) to all the restaurant & shops. We used the bikes several times and enjoyed a quick 10 minute ride to Robbies to feed those crazy Tarpon. The bike trail just across Overseas Highway is great for riding bikes, walking or going for a run. It's also less than a two hour drive to Key West (we found Islamorada way better than Key West). Just about every day we were the only ones at the pool and it's great to jump to cool off or relax and read a book. Inside the bungalow is very nice with what seems like recent updates all throughout. It has everything you need to enjoy the amenities as if you were home. The owners are great to work with and even had a card along with a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us as a congratulations as we checked in. You won't be disappointed with your stay at this cute bungalow.
First Keys Trip
Perfect spot to explore the Keys. This little home is clean, and comfortable; exactly as pictured. Easy 2 hour drive to Key West, but so many nice state parks along the way to stop, swim, explore, catch a boat to fish or snorkel. Location perfect, house perfect, private pool, perfect, communication with Bill and Maggie perfect!
Blue (HEAVEN) Bungalow 2
To begin with, Maggie was quick to respond to any questions and had great advice for activities in the area. This property was neat, tidy and very comfortable! Although the property is right along Overseas Highway, the traffic noise never bothered us. The neighborhood is quiet and we always felt comfortable. The pool was quite inviting and private, in fact only one other couple was there for about an hour during our stay. The bungalow has everything you would need for a comfortable stay. This was our first vacation in the Florida keys and we can't wait to return to Blue Bungalow.

Fantastic sums it up perfectly
We stayed at Bungalow blue for our honeymoon. Bill and Maggie were very helpful prior to our stay. We were pleasantly surprised by their kind gesture, leaving a bottle of champagne and a card congratulating us. The house was just want we were looking for. The location is very convenient, both by car and by boat. It was nice to have a boat ramp on the street also. The neighborhood was nice and clean. We will definitely stay here again next year.
Beautiful Bungalow Blue
This little gem has to be experienced to be truly appreciated! Everything about this vacation home was perfect right from the first communication with the owners to the moment we left. It really was a home from home which was in a quiet area and local to shops and great restaurants. We enjoyed using the bicycles provided as well as the barbecue. Having the pool to relax in after being out for the day was great. We really could not have found a more perfect vacation home or location.
