*** SPECIAL NOTE ***

To all of our guests and friends who have reached out to us after Hurricane Irma - THANK YOU. Our bungalow made it through the storm, and the clean up is complete. Our pool is sparkling clean (now heated!), and we've planted many new trees and plants. The Islamorada residents and businesses have done an amazing job of cleaning up and beautifying the island.

With warm regards,

Bill & Maggie

This adorable little bungalow, renovated in 2015, is clean and modern, and in the perfect location to experience everything that the Florida Keys 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 stunning blue-green water on both sides of the road, with palm trees and sea birds everywhere you look. The air is warm, and at night, with so little man-made light, the stars seem to sparkle brighter 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, new a/c unit, 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 meticulously maintained. Enjoy at no added charge: a sparkling private heated 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 with friendly neighbors. Here, you can rest comfortably and quietly after a long day of Islamorada adventures.

If you prefer a clean and quiet private home over a large crowded resort, you will 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 & Maggie

We are both natives of Connecticut, and we've enjoyed visiting the Keys on vacation for many years. Now we call the Keys our home.

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

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 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.

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.

RETURN TRIP TO PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow Blue is a great home away from home. Spotless, inside & out.

Before, during & after your stay, Bill and Maggie are a pleasure to deal with.

They have thought of everything. The kitchen is well equipped. The propane grill is great for the occasional eat-in meal. Nice little picnic table. Plastic tumblers for poolside cocktails. Great!!!

The rejuvenated pool is located right next door, and once again we had it to ourselves for the entire week, day & night.

The centralized location allows for easy day trips to other Keys attractions. Bahia Honda State Park (with a side trip to Deer Key), Marathon, Tavernier & Key Largo are all within a reasonable drive. Not to mention the great attractions, bars & restaurants right in Islamorada.

We’re already missing it & planning our third trip back.

Awesome, cannot wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was immaculate and had everything you need for a great vacation. Convenient location to all the other Keys to visit, plus so much to do in Islamorada. The private pool was great, the beds were so comfortable and the accommodations were superb. We look forward to renting Bungalow Blue again next year!!

A great place to recharge your batteries and relax

  • 5 of 5

This place was super cute, very updated. The kitchen was well-equipped and the couch was so comfy every night at the end of a day in the sun. The shower was great, and the two bedrooms were nicely appointed. We spent some of each day in the pool, wonderful for relaxation and very clean. This is a place where you can do nothing, or everything (fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, museum visiting, beach trolling, biking, etc.). Bill and Maggie seemed to anticipate every need and the condo is replete with pamphlets and recommendations from previous guests. In fact, I wish I was still there, instead of thinking about Monday morning, March 19th, and we're supposed to get a couple of inches of snow!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow Blue was a perfect rental for our first trip to the Keys. We loved the spotless modern interior, full of all the amenties we could possibly need. Maggie did a wonderful job decorating, we were the envy of all the other bungalows. The heated pool right next door was gorgeous, we spent everyday floating and playing games at the table. The house is outside of town so it is nice and quiet but close enough that we could go to dinner or to get groceries. We even got to see 5 manatees floating in the canal across the street. The best part of our stay were the wonderful friends we made at the pool from two of the other bungalows. We became fast friends and are even planning our next trip together. Captain Mike who lives next door says this happens every week, people becoming good friends during their stay but I like to think we're special. :) We couldn't have asked for a better trip and Bill, Maggie and their beautiful Bungalow Blue made it that much better. Thanks for the memories!

This cozy little bungalow was the perfect Islamorada “home” for my husband and I during our week long vacation. Our hosts were super responsive and so very helpful. The area has sooo much to offer. We are so happy that we discovered Bungalow Blue!
