a group of 8 of us spent a long weekend plus a few more days at the house. our primary reason for going was to kiteboard. the wind wasn't great but we got out 2 days. it was great to be able to kite directly from the house which we did on one of the days. the house is very well appointed, clean, large, and roomy. it was perfect for us and we hope to be back next year.
I had my wedding on this property recently and it was outstanding. I really can't think of a better setting for a rehearsal dinner, wedding, family get togethers. The house has just had some great updates inside which make the property perfect. Could not recommend this any higher!
We had a great family vacation at Southern Diversion. The house was neat and clean and had all the amenities that we needed to be comfortable. The property is beautifully landscaped and it has a large sandy beach area with lounge chairs, hamock and kayaks. There is a long fishing pier which my husband and son-in-law used everday to try their luck at fishing. The house also has a heated pool which was great. The house is in a perfect location close to shopping and great restaurants. We hope to go back for another family vacation in the near future.
We just returned from a week in Islamorada at the Southern Diversion estate. The property was just beautiful - from the tree lined drive up to the front of the home to the postcard-like views of the ocean out back. The house had plenty of room for all our extended family, including a bunch of young kiddos. The bunk room was perfect for all the cousins to sleep in. The four bathrooms were great, so the adults didn't feel like we were having to share those. The main floor living area is HUGE, including a big kitchen with a gigantic island for everyone to sit around.
The pool is lovely, the hammock is lovely, the sand to play in is lovely. We weren't really able to play in the sand right down by the shore due to seaweed and rocks, but we would just walk out a bit or climb down the ladder if we wanted to swim, float, or snorkel. The water is crystal clear and often very calm. The owners provide access to a kayak, snorkel gear, life jackets, water shoes, beach toys, towels - everything you will need for outside. And they have many great areas for lounging, hanging out and eating outside - both by the pool and down by the water. The set up was really perfect for us, as we could sit on the back deck of the house and keep an eye on the kids whether they were swimming in the pool or hanging out by the water.
The bathrooms are quite dated, and the house could use some updating - but in the end you really don't care much because the location and size of the house, as well as the the outdoor spaces, are just perfection!!
Joe, the caretaker down in the Keys, was very attentive and took great care of us while we were down there.
The website doens't do the property justice! We spent a week there for a family renunion and it offered everthing we could have asked for. It felt secluded, private and serene. The house was very well cared for and every room had a beautiful view. We especially liked the kitchen setup as we could all hang out while our "chef" cooked. The 2nd refrigerator and the wine cooler were a added bonus. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. I would highly recommend this home!
We rented the Southern Diversion Estate in March, 2011. The house was even better than described or pictured! We came across this property on vrbo and knew it would be the perfect spot to have our wedding ceremony and reception. The house has 5 bedrooms. One bedroom with a King, 2 with Queens, one with a bunk bed and 2 twins, and a den with a pull out sofa sleeper. This was perfect for our group of 11. It would have comfortably slept a few more! The kitchen is nice and open to the living area, which opens to a nice screened in porch, overlooking the pool, beach, tiki hut area, and beautiful turquois water. There is a kayak to use onsite, and equipment for lobster catching! Our guys caught a baby one :) We also liked all of the loungers, hammocks, and swings. There is also a swingset for children. You will have all of the ammenities of home plus more! There is a resort right next door which charges an arm and a leg, and they do not have a beach like Southern Diversion!! The caretaker, Joe, was also great! House was spotless upon arrival, and he was there in the mornings to rake the beach and make sure we had everything we needed. Before our wedding ceremony, Joe lined our isle with tiki torches. The deck that leads to the dock made the perfect isle for us, leading to a spot between 2 palm trees. It was truly picture perfect! I would recommend this house for small, intimate weddings only. There would not be enough parking for large weddings, and I would worry about it getting too noisy for neighbors. We had a total of 15 people, which was perfect because we were able to use the teak chairs for our guests on the beach. Afterward, we took some really nice pictures on the beach, in the tiki hut, on the dock, by the pool, and in the hammock. We had a reception right on site, and did our own catering, using the grill that was right on site as well. We used Mile Marker Party Rentals in Marathon for our table rentals and ipod dock wireless speaker. Jill Atkinson, owner, also did our officiating, so it was a package deal!! They delivered and picked everything up which made it stress free! Overall, when I travel, I like to go to new places and stay at different locations, but I would go back to Southern Diversion anyday! It is close to alot of fun places in Islamorada (Our group of "thirty-somethings" had a great time at Holiday Isle and Woody's!!) You won't be disappointed with renting this place!!
