Overview

Islamorada House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 6, ocean view from balcony, optional dock

This magnificent home with an ocean view from the balcony is located in Islamorada at Mile Marker 85 in the exclusive gated community of Angler's Reef, a quiet oceanfront community in the Florida Keys. Anglers Reef is a boutique complex of 52 homes inspired by Native Conch & British West Indies architecture. Quaint streets & walking paths wind through this village-styled retreat. Amenities include a community pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and 500ft of private beach. The home's boat slip is available for rent with a deep channel out to the Atlantic. Or launch your kayak from the private beach (kayak rentals available for drop-off). Built in 2007, this home has 2 bedrooms located on the 2nd floor. Master bedroom has a private porch with an ocean view and the porch downstairs has a partial ocean view for morning coffee or cocktails. Homes decor includes stainless appliances, granite counters, tile floors, 3 flat screen TVs w/DVD players, cable with HBO & WiFi.

Parks in Islamorada, Village of Islands: Just 2 miles north is Islamorada Founders Park at MM 87 Bayside, which offers activity or relaxation for the whole family. An Olympic-sized pool with diving area, a shallow water beach, water sports rentals, ball fields, fishing jetty, bocce, tennis and basketball courts, vita course with 18 exercise stations, multi-purpose path, skate park and dog park all are within the 40-acre park. Fees may apply. Village municipal parks also include the Islamorada Library Beach and Anne’s Beach. There is the Windley Key State Geological Site, a state park, at the site of a former coral rock quarry. In addition to shady walks through unique foliage, fossils of sea creatures can be seen throughout the park. A free guidebook is available at the visitors center for use during your stay in the park. Islamorada also offers an 18-mile bicycle path that extends the length of the Village.

Scuba/Snorkel! : Islamorada, long recognized as the 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World,' is now an icon among sport divers for a similar reason: a massive population of tropical marine life. High profile coral heads and broad ledges shelter huge congregates of French grunt and goat fish, while regal queen angelfish casually graze amid the reef recesses. Friendly green moray eels swim freely along the spur-and-groove channels, and reclusive nurse sharks lurk beneath the overhangs. Islamorada offers a wide variety of shallow coral reefs, mini walls, shipwrecks, and even an underwater habitat for scientific research, the Aquarius. To learn more about Islamorada or any other manner of local lore, stop by the Chamber of Commerce at MM 82.5.

*The Eagle - This 287 ft ship was intentionally sunk in 110 ft of water as a dive attraction, cloaked in sponge & coral, populated by grunt, harpoon & jack. *Davis Reef - Reef revered for its incredible concentration of grunts & schoolmaster snapper, as well as several amiable resident green morays, long accustomed to benign interaction with the dive masters. *Alligator Reef - Now marked by a 136-ft-tall lighthouse, on this spot in 1822 the USS Alligator grounded & sank while protecting a convoy from pirates; remains of the wreck are the twin piles of ballast stones, but the coral reef - in just 25 ft of water - is vibrant and alive. *Conch Wall - Offering a precipitous sloping wall & captivating concentrations of barrel sponge & gorgonia punctuating seafloor. *Crocker Wall - A 450+-foot-long wall in 50 ft of water. The wall has a 30 ft decline and features grunts, yellow tail &grouper with spur-and-groove coral & block coral.

*Pickles Reef - Reef's minutia in 15-25 ft of water.

About Scott Ofstein

We love the Keys! We purchased our first Keys home next door to this one (HomeAway #326184) back in 2009 and loved it so much we bought this second home right next door. My wife and I have 2 girls ages 13 and 10 and they also love the Keys. They love boating, fishing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, biking and just hanging out at the Keys famous sandbars. Islamorada is an amazing Island and in my opinion the best location in the Florida Keys! You can't go wrong!

Scott Ofstein purchased this house in 2012

Why Scott Ofstein chose Islamorada

Our home has nice views of the Atlantic Ocean and is not backed to any roads. The community is gated and has a pool right on the Atlantic Ocean, a marina with a deep water channel to the Atlantic Ocean and a beach. We are one of Islamorada's limited number of licensed weekly vacation homes, VR-136.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In preparing for our trip to Anglers Reef, we rented kayaks for the week and set up a sailfish trip and a backcountry trip. This was a great place to be! Short paddle out onto the flats with our 7 and 10 year olds searching for shells and observing marine life - no more than 10 minutes from any of our fishing guides and we could walk to dinner at the Island Grill. We also made a day trip into Key West to see Scott Kirby at the Smokin' Tuna - great place, great musician, good guy. Great location for the outdoor types - the Geological Park across the street is a must see, you can bike to Theatre of the Sea, and (again) several afternoons walking barefooted in the flats out front with the kids after a short paddle out - wonderful place. This house is a definite repeat for us. We've been doing Christmas in the Keys for the past five years, accompanied by some summer weeks. You should not hesitate to get here. Scott was great with food and Backcountry Cowboy suggestions. And, hey, the bottle of Sailor Jerry waiting for us on arrival was spot on - got Caribbean soul ... and some Texas here ... Get out of the cold and grey; book that flight; go to Anglers Reef now.

Fantastic home and trip!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time and the house was fantastic. The boat dock is really close so it was easy taking things back and forth from the house. The boat dock is well protected and has easy access to the ocean. The house was extremely clean and had everything we needed. Great views from the balcony. The neighborhood is centrally located to everything and had a great community pool.

Scotts customer service is top notch and was available anytime we had a question.

We would definitely recommend this home, and will be back again.

Oasis in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for paradise, this is it! We're first time VRBO renters and did not know what to expect. Our entire experience from the first contact with Scott to sadly locking the house door for the last time was incredible! Scott is so friendly and helpful! You'll be in awe from the minute you drive onto the property. This home is beautiful, peaceful and you'll definately NOT want to leave. The pool and beach area are so clean and the people are very friendly. The entire development is picture post card worthly. The location is perfect to experience the neighboring Keys. If you're looking to leave your worries behind, have a dream vacation and experience the breathtaking wonders of the Florida Keys…stop looking just pick a date on the calendar and go!!!
Must Do's: Robbie's (feed the tarpons), Morado Bay resturant for a breathtaking sunset dinner with tables in the sand. Fabulous food, drinks and toes in the sand! Back Country Cowboys for kayak rentals; experience low tide on a sandbar! Turtle Hospital in Marathon. And of course…save a day to explore the wonders of Key West!

We're already planning a repeat vacation for next year!

Thank you Scott!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here when we visited Islamorada. The home and community are beautiful and very clean. The owners provided a list of area attractions, restaurants, and where to get necessities that was very helpful. We paddleboarded in the ocean right behind the house. The local business that rents them dropped them off and picked them up so we didn't have to worry about how to get them in our rental car. There is so much to do in the area that we could not fit it all into one week. Can't wait to go back!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from an amazing week at your house. We were so impressed with every aspect of our visit. Not knowing a lot about the Keys we feel that we were very lucky to stumble upon your house. The island is terrific. Not too commercial as others we saw seemed to be. The location was central enough allowing us to check off most of the items on our "to do" list. We were so impressed with all of the little features of the house. It seemed that every time we opened a cabinet to get an item it was inside. We are a family of 5 with three young kids. Usually the kids fight over who has to sleep on the air mattress. This mattress is so high end they were fighting because they wanted to sleep on the air mattress!! The pool turned out to be a huge asset. Which we used daily. The grounds were impeciably maintained. The location of the unit within Anglers Reef was wonderful. We were pleased with the proximity to the boat slips and the pool. There is a secluded beach area right near our house as well which was prefect for a quick soccer game or a game of catch. Others we talked to complained about traffic noise. The only noise we heard came from the ocean or the birds!! Really great spot. We did have a small problem one day and Scott responded within several minutes!! Even came down to check to make sure all was good, which it was!! And followed up a few times throughout our week to make sure we were not having any issues. I strongly recommend the unit and in fact we are already making plans to return next year!

Scott's house is fantastic! Everything is clean, modern, and beautifully decorated. Everything that you might want for the week is provided. The community grounds are meticulously maintained and the pool and private beach are great. We had a great week and would come back without hesitation! We could not have asked for anything more!

Islamorada is located in the Upper Keys, about halfway between Miami and Key West. Nicknamed the Sport Fishing Capital of the World and known to have the best restaurants in the Keys, there is much to do in, under, above or near the waters surrounding Islamorada. In the water... you can boat, kayak, para sail, jet ski, snorkel, dive or even cruise out to the Alligator Reef Lighthouse. You can also swim with dolphins, sea lions and sea rays at Theater of the Sea (less than a mile south). Or if you have had enough water, check out the local parks, pampering spas, exclusive shops and a large array of amazing restaurants. Be sure to catch a sunset from the many restaurants or bars along the gulf side. And if it's a full moon, adults may want to head over to Morada Bay & Pierre's for their famous Full Moon Parties, beach parties with bonfires in the sand, specialty drinks and live entertainment (covers apply).
