About Pat Murphy

We are a family who love the ocean. The pictures are of our family members. The pictures were not staged. We were genuinely having a great time.

Pat Murphy purchased this estate in 2014

Why Pat Murphy chose Upper Florida Keys

Location, Location, Location. We have dreamed of living in Islamorada for some time. The house is huge along with the property. The house faces the most beautiful water you will ever see. The water just calls our name. We love the location because the home has that Caribbean feel but is still in the United States.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We searched several homes and locations in the Keys. This one met all of our needs. We had a family reunion of sorts with kids and adults. The accommodations were perfect for all of us. Several activities for the kids to enjoy while the adults relaxed. I would highly recommend it! We were able to cook family style and eat together, with a large kitchen and outdoor grill. If we return to the Keys I would chose this house again. Thank you Pat for helping us to make great memories with our kids!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property and the owners. From the first contact with Patty throughout the whole rental process she was so friendly and accommodating. The house property was beautiful and well maintained and we had everything (and more) than we could need. All the equipment that was offered with the house (kayak, paddle board beach toys, bikes) we loved and used them all. We traveled with 5 adults 1 teen and 2 kids and there was something for everyone. Would highly recommend this property!!!

Wow! Incredible house and beach!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start...from the moment we made contact with the owner until the moment we departed, everything was perfect. All of our questions were answered courteously and promptly. We were amazed at all of the beach toys and amenities in the home. Everything has been meticulously thought out to allow the guests to maximize their enjoyment while on property. The house is suitable for guests of all ages. Our young adult children were in heaven snorkeling and using the kayaks and paddle boards. We adults enjoyed sitting in the beach chairs Oceanside. The pool and spa were perfect with comfy loungers poolside. Plenty of beach towels and dishes to make our vacation comfortable. The house is gated which offered us privacy. The water was very nice temperature for swimming and water sports.

The beach is amazing. The views are amazing. The house is amazing. The ocean is amazing.

The location in the Keys is perfect, close to amazing dining venues and nearby activities for fishing and exploring the Keys. Don't hesitate to seriously consider this home for your family vacation, I am sure you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended. We are already planning our next stay.
