For our combined family vacation for the holidays, Paradise by the Sea proved absolutely perfect! From reservation to arrival, co-owner Therese made everything easy -- sending detailed information to us in advance on the home, Islamorada and the Keys. When we asked questions about scuba diving and fishing, she researched possibilities and responded with added information that proved very helpful. Upon arrival, we found their home spotless, very well equipped, beautifully decorated for the holidays (!), and the delightful pool already warmed up for our use. The location was perfect for all of our activities including a day trip into Key West; diving, fishing, kayaking and running; family dinners (with multiple cooks in the kitchen at once); playing games on the screened-in porch, and just chilling by the pool and canal waterfront. We rent our own home near Washington DC through HomeAway/VRBO so we pay attention to the details. These folks make Paradise by the Sea a terrific vacation destination that we hope to enjoy again and recommend strongly to others!!
This beautiful home, known as 'Paradise by the Sea' is exactly that - a paradise by the sea. Our extended family spent the 2012 holidays in this Islamorada treasure and couldn't have chosen a better place. And the owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The house is spacious inside and out, beautifully furnished yet comfortable, and fully stocked with all the essentials any traveler could need. The adirondack chairs by the water and the comfy furniture in the large upstairs screened-in porch were perfect spots for relaxing with a drink and a book, watching the fish and the pelicans, or just enjoying the beautiful view. Kayaks were available for the adventurous, and the heated pool provided hours of entertainment for the kids. The location on the Keys was perfect for day trips to Key West and the Everglades, as well as local parks and beaches. Our family had one of our best holidays ever and we can't wait to go back again. And when we do, there is no doubt we will want to stay at 'Paraside by the Sea'.
What a perfect house to enjoy the Keys!
Our entire family greatly enjoyed the amenities of the home, and surrounding Islamorada. It is a perfect locale, with the ability to day trip to Key West or the Everglades, and is a peaceful "home away from home" when staying put. Islamorada is a perfect spot to stay in the Keys.
We loved the pool, the layout of the house, and the hospitality felt during our stay. Great kitchen, lovely decor, amazing deck and dock, and lots of space! A perfect vacation home!
Thanks so much for an unforgettable stay!
We love this place!! We bring our boat and family here as often as we can and would not rent at any other home in the keys.
The house is wonderful for both family and friends and all the amenities are just what we are looking for in a vacation home. Lots of room, gorgeous views, perfect indoor and outdoor space.. It is also set up to be able to work remotely during your stay if you have the need.
Love, Love, Love our times here. We have enjoyed each and every stay in this home!
The house setting is perfect for a family gathering, great room sizes, shallow pool area for little ones, easy canal access. The porch area is perfect for evening dinners and the kitchen is large and accomdates all needs. I would recommend this property.
This is the 2nd time we opted to do a beach house instead of a cruise for our yearly family reunion vacation. Speaking for all of us, this was the best vacation we had. The house was of perfect size, and just about everything you could need was provided. We all had the best, most relaxing time ever. We would like to come again next year if at all possible. Recommending this house is a very easy thing to do. And for all that are considering a house rental this would be the one to take. We would all like to thank you for opening your home to us........Wonderful time was had by all!!!!!!!!
