About Bettie M. Bedell

We were a family of four now grown to a family of 12 including five grandchildren who are growing rapidly. Adult males (3) can't get enough fishing, serious fly fishermen.

One princess, four princes, three moms and one Senior Citizen.

We all have a special affinity for Florida beaches and having visited many not only here but around the world, we think this is 'IT' hands down.

Why Bettie M. Bedell chose Lower Matecumbe Key

Obviously everyone knows this is THE Fishing Capital of the World. So that combined with our gorgeous private beach, we feel fortunate to have landed here! Easy access for all of us. However, airports in Miami and Marathon are not too far.

What makes this condo unique

You can do nothing or do something every day. Relaxing is one of the primary occupations when you get in the Island Mode. No strain, manana--there's always another day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to tell you how much we enjoyed the stay at Sandy Point Condo. The view is magnificent, I think what we enjoyed most was being able to park the boat at the dock in the canal and have the great beach in the back yard! The new decor is fantastic. The 85lb. tarpon we caught and released while down there, has now increased to over 150lbs. After all the fish stories, everything was 4 star and we are looking forward to a return next year!,

Sincerely,

Jack

Relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful visit here last weekend! Another couple and their very young daughter stayed here with my husband and me, and there was fun had by all! It is in an ideal location, as there is a private beach with swimming, chickees, and an outdoor grille. The private beach is truly special - great sunsets, wading for little ones, we even saw dolphins! The home is in close proximity to restaurants, marinas, grocery stores, and main attractions. The accommodations are comfortable and relaxed and very clean. There are 2 bedrooms, and 1.5 baths. Everything you would need is provided there - towels, etc. There is a washer and dryer too, if needed. The owner is incredibly friendly and easy to contact and work with. Wonderful place vacation!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
This unit is ideally located on the Florida Bay side of Lower Matecumbe Key. It is within a few miles of restaurants, shops and many of the Islamorada water activities. I especially enjoyed the fishing and scuba opportunities unique to this area.
The unit has been recently upgraded and very tastefully decorated with sleeping quarters on the 3rd floor; kitchen, dining and living rooms on the 2nd floor; and, covered parking & washer/dryer on the ground floor. The spacious gulf views from the 2nd and 3rd floor are awesome!
The condo association maintains a private sand beach on the bay where residents & guests enjoy sunning, snorkeling, and wading/swimming. There is also a separate private launch and docking on an internal inlet fronting the complex for boaters.
You’ll find the owner very gracious and accommodating. I rate my experience an "A+" and will be back!

A new place in our hearts!

  • 5 of 5
I and my wife and 2 children, ages 11 and 9, just recently stayed in this unit and could not have had a better time. The beach is just incredible with chickees and a hammock and crystal clear water. We all had a wonderful time swimming, snorkeling and exploring. On the last morning, while fishing on the beach, I had a manatee swim right up to me! And keep your eyes peeled for the resident iguanas! The unit is decorated very tastefully and has everything a family of 4 could ever need. The beds are very comfortable and sunsets are amazing from both the livingroom and master bedroom. You do not need to worry about needing your favorite knives or other utensils, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could ever need. Having washer and dryer on site is such a bonus! The location is perfect. Great restaurants and shopping are very nearby. We have found our new home away from home.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely fabulous vacation! The condo was charming and just right for our family of four with two small children. The beautiful private beach was perfect for the kids and hanging out in the water or under the chickee for some shade. The coconut palms and key lime trees were beautiful.....truly island paradise! We kept our rented boat at the private top notch deep water canal dock just steps from the condo, which made boating a breeze and the private boat ramp would be super convenient if you trailer your own boat. Loved every minute and can't wait to come back next year! Thanks for such a great time!!

One of the nicest rentals we have had in the Keys. To have a private beach in the Keys, is a treasure to be cherished. The location of this condo was perfect. Close to many excellent restaurants and marinas. The condo was clean, open, bright and cheerful. Huge windows with magnificent views. Located in an upscale neighborhood. The owner was one of the best to work with. Always available to answer your questions, and very accomodating. Will definitely rent from again. Cannot forget to mention, every night on the beach you can watch beautiful, unobstructed Gulf sunsets.

Absolutely Perfect!

We had a wonderful time - the condo is beautifully appointed and equipped. The beach is delightful - it was so nice to be able to just walk out and sit by the water. We took our boat and it could not have been more convenient. Can't wait to go again!

Owner's Response: You are the best! Friends for life. I am sending some puzzles for the next rainy day guests. I am open to suggestions for other games. Even paradise must have a "few" drops of rain from time to time.
