Beautiful and peaceful bayfront home with casual coastal living décor. A charming piece of paradise offering open water views from family room, porch, beach and private 180+ foot dock. Fishing, snorkeling, swimming, canoeing, paddle boarding or simply laying on the hammock can be enjoyed from this private, water front, fenced-in property. This cozy hideaway, with all of the amenities for a memorable vacation, provides dining on the porch/ beach overlooking the beautiful bay. Home is ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac street, adjacent to Adams Cut, where deep sea fishing is just a short boat ride away on your own boat or one of many local fishing charters. Located just 55 minutes from Miami International Airport and minutes away from John Pennekamp State Park. Our house provides easy access to daily diving/snorkeling trips to Molasses Reef, the 510 ft USS Spiegel Grove and famous Christ of the Abyss underwater statue. Many nearby local restaurants to choose from, offering the best seafood and dining experience.
The Beach House theme is consistently applied to this property from the front gate to the end of the dock creating a wonderful holiday atmosphere. We found the Beach House clean and comfortable and it couldn’t be more fully equipped. The photos on the HomeAway web site reflect what we found in real life. The neighbourhood is quiet, yet close to shops and a good range of food outlets. The view from the back of the house is outstanding – plenty of passing boats to watch but not so close as to be intrusive. Sitting in the comfort of the verandah at the rear overlooking Blackwater Sound we were able to watch ospreys, kingfishers and pelicans fishing and we were visited by herons most days. From the dock we fed the fish (they seemed to like left over rice from the local Thai restaurant as well as bread and chopped shrimp) and saw a small stingray, tarpon and other smaller species, but the highlight was the group of seven manatees which swam in one calm evening, checked us out, decided we were harmless but not as interesting as the sea grass, so they just carried on feeding just a few feet from us. The manatees stayed for over an hour which was such a treat. From the Beach House it was easily possible to visit the Everglades and other wildlife sites in the Upper and Middle Keys. The snorkelling was good using the local dive company and we swam with barracuda and many other colourful fishes. We are saving up for a return visit.
This is the 2nd year we have stayed here for 2 weeks. Miguel and Maria were there to greet us upon arrival. FYI, if you have any problems or questions during your stay, they are quick to respond. There were several upgrades since last year. A totally renovated master bathroom with tile shower. The master bedroom has a brand new king size bed. The kitchen has a brand new refrigerator. Clearly the owners care about their beautiful home. We love it for so many reasons because everything is included! The house is clean, all linens and towels included. A really well stocked kitchen. Gorgeous, water views from nearly every room. We enjoyed sitting and reading in the backyard beach area, watching sunsets and manatees from the dock, and eating outside on the porch. Just come and be ready to get relaxed and lose track of the days! One particular day, we saw the most beautiful rainbow over the bay! Our favorite happy hour restaurant is Snook's Bayside and Lorelei, (Islamorada). Our favorite restaurants are Snappers, Sundowners, Fishhouse, and Buzzards Roost. We bought and cooked fresh Hogfish, Stone Crabs, Yellowtail Snapper, and Shrimp from Key Largo Fisheries, who also serve lunch outside at a marina. We will definitely be back next year.
We arrived at our destination after a very busy and hot trip to Orlando with our four children. It's the sort of place that when you step into the beach house, your shoulders drop, you breathe a big sigh of relief and feel a very warm welcome enfold you. The house is beautifully decorated in a beachside relaxed way, beds are comfortable, it is immaculate, and you cant wait to kick off your shoes and step out onto the boardwalk to watch the sunset. There are supermarkets and amazing fish restaurants a few minutes drive away. The sea is like a bath and the children, when they got over their fear of some weeds in the sea, spent all their time snorkelling and looking for fish. We would love to come back and would definitely recommend a visit to any of our friends and family.
Lovely and comfortable home with magnificent sunrise, sunsets. The owners took magnificent care of the property, and the property is spotless. Our family stayed at Meagan's Beach house two consecutive summers and we made memories to revisit over and over again.
My wife and myself spent a lovely week here that went far too fast.
Mike and Maria were waiting for us when we arrived and made sure we knew how everything worked before they left.
The photos of this house do not do it justice.
The house was spotless and the kitchen very well stocked. In fact we did not eat out once here as we wanted to spend as much time enjoying the beautiful view as possible.
The underwater lighting was magical and we saw lots of different fish, crabs, dolphins, small sharks and even manatees from a distance.
The kayak was great fun also.
We hope to return one day and would definitely recommend this holiday home.
My family & I absolutely LOVED our recent 2 week stay here, I absolutely agree with the other reviewers on everything but especially the cleanliness, the "Coastal Living" décor, & the amazing dock with the underwater lights after dark. It was like living atop an aquarium....even iguanas & sting rays ,with manatee & a Bonnethead Shark, So fun to watch the huge Tarpon catch the occasional shrimp for a tasty snack! Maria & Mike welcomed us warmly with wine,a fruit basket & many good recommendations for the area. We will definitely be back!
