SECLUDED OCEAN FRONT COTTAGES & PRIVATE BEACH & 230' DOCK IN ISLAMORADA, FL

Islamorada Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 baths, sleeps 6 with room for Weddings or other Special Events

Relax in Islamorada, Florida Keys... 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World.' If you are looking for gold sinks, with gold fixtures, this is not the place for you!

This is a place to just 'hang out' while savoring the ocean view, breezes and sounds. If you want peaceful, secluded and close to nature - This is your home away from the world.

These are simple cottages of the 1950's with basic furnishing that include; pillow top mattresses, flat screen TV's and the 'old world' feeling of the beach cottages of 'yesterday'. We are beach front and 'ground level' and as such you will have 'visitors' peacocks, local lizards, mosquitoes, sand flies and the occasional scorpion - This is the beach life in Florida or the Caribbean. We are NOT a hermetically sealed concrete and glass condo/spa and if that is what you want - Please, go elsewhere.

If you want to experience the charm of the Florida Key's the way they were in the 40's and 50's this is the spot. You will step back in time to the natural way the Keys were, when Henry Flagler built his railroad. Two ground floor cottages sit on 2.5 acres and have magnificent views along the 235 feet of ocean front. You can relax in one of the five hammocks under the coconut trees on a beautiful white sand beach. Sip a cocktail, cool down and relax in the shallow 'drinking' pool. Enjoy the beautiful native peacocks that have lived in the area for over 60 years along with other local birds.

Private Beach, Ocean Front secluded and peaceful with 230 foot dock/pier - What more could you want?

Walk out above the ocean along a 220 feet Pier where you can dock a small boat or a yacht up to 50 Ft. Catch you dinner from your own pier and use an outdoor grill to cook outside using stainless steel cookware.

Located 1 1/2 miles from Founders Park, Islamorada with Olympic Swimming Pool, Tennis, playground, dog park and Water Sports Equipment Rental.

Manatees are regular visitors at along with tarpon, mangrove snappers, parrot fish, small rays, and other native fish species swimming in the waters off our dock. Join them for an afternoon swim or snorkel. Beautiful tropical vegetation, shore birds, and other marine life are all around you. You will cherish the memories of your stay in this lush Island Paradise.

Fishing: Backcountry for Bonefish, Tarpon, and Permit. Get the grand slam. Full access To the Altantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Offshore: Fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Dolphin, Wahoo, Kings and the reef for Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper and Cobia. There are many skilled charter captain's available or just bring your boat or that of a friends and move-in.

Boating: Bay and offshore cruising. Visit the World Famous Sandbar for relaxing and meeting new people and historical sites. Kayaking, Swimming, Diving: John Pennekamp State Park with beautiful reef diving, Hens and chickens (another well-know diving spot, you can see from our pier) Cheeca Rocks. There are rental boats available.

Attractions: Theater of the Sea, where you and your family can swim and Interact with Dolphins,Rays and Sea Lions; Robbie's Marina where you can feed the Tarpon; Lignum Vitae National Botanical Site; Indian Key Historical Island; Pennekamp State Park; World Famous Holiday Isle Tiki bar; and many gourmet restaurants for your dining pleasure.

I have lived in the Keys since 1956 and this is the Island Paradise that I grew up in, and 'used to be everywhere' in the Keys before people knocked the cottages down, bulldozed the trees and vegetation to build concrete fortresses.

Purchased this property over thirty years ago (30) in order to preserve what the Keys meant to me and grateful now to be able to share a bit of my paradise with you.

** ACCOMMODATIONS ARE ROUGH **

  • 1 of 5
If you have low expectations when it comes to cleanliness the place may work for you. The cottages were filthy. Not a little dust kind of dirty, but other people's grime dirty.

The owners we not prepared for our arrival yet they told us the cleaning lady had just left. Lawn furniture was scatterd about the property, not all of the beds were made and the bedding that was there was grungy. The small wading pool was dirty and vomit from a wedding the night before was still on the patio.

There is a dock for boats and fishing. If you're a hardcore fisherman and are used to camping, want the convenience of a boat out your door then you may like it here.

Overall, if your planning a nice family vacation, a girls weekend or a spa getaway look somewhere else. I would never consider going back and would not recommend it to anyone. We stayed one night and left.

Owner's Response: Peacock Cottages are the simple Keys Cottages of many years ago updated with; pillow top mattresses, flat screen TV's, Wireless Internet all situated on the beach, and as such they are intended for enjoying nature, the sea breeze, and ocean water and views. The outdoor furniture is "scattered" around the 2.5 acres allowing a "bit of something" for everyone and no matter where the furniture is placed allowing each and every visitor to "make their mark" by personalizing their lounging area in the sun or the shade near the beach or cottages.

The guests arrived "early", and of the women who had booked the property, one was elderly and unsteady on her feet and concerned about special TV Shows and another was elated to "jump in a hammock" and have another drink after arrival at the property from the local oceanfront bar they had spent the previous hours at.

We are regretful they were not happy with their accommodations, however all beds were made, linens clean, floors and bathrooms freshly mopped. "Old" wood floors and walls have a color and character that some people might not appreciate. By the volume of liquor bottles consumed within the one (1) night stay by so few people, and personal clothing left behind no one can accurately say who was sick on the far edge of the patio that borders the beach. It is interesting they state the stay was terrible and yet they did not request a refund at all so one can only wonder what really transpired during their stay.

THE LAYED BACK KEYS

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying here. The set up of the peacock cottages was great. This is what you call the layed back keys not fancy condos. The owners were very freindly and always went out of their way for us. Their maintance person (Mike) gave us coconuts rignt off the palm trees and cut them to where we could drink the juice and if you want an even better taste, add a little rum....We had everything we needed there including kitchen utenciles, towels, extra bedding and lots of chairs for outside use. Don't worry about bringing your own lounge chairs. The beds were very comfortable and the drinking pool was the best..Lay out in the sun with your fruity drinks and listen to the music and take a dip to cool off. We cooked out almost every night there and the backround of the ocean and trees was excellent with tiki torches lit. We even seen some hermit crabs, large lizzards and lots of peacocks walking around the grounds.
Even though we had some rough weather a few days we made the best of it right there. We will be back next year.

AWESOME SETTING

  • 4 of 5
The headline for this property is simple: The setting is simply awesome.

You step out of your cottage in the morning (there are actually two cottages, about 20 yards apart), and there you are, right on the beach, peacocks wandering the grounds -- watch out for the droppings! -- the water sparkling, the dock glistening, the sun shining. There are hammocks strung between the palms . . . a breeze maybe . . pelicans and egrets overhead. It's placid and just gorgeous.

Also, a little funky. Jeorge (yes, he spells it that way), the extremely friendly owner, has his trailer hitched up in a far corner of the property. The lot is large, so you don't feel cramped, and he's not meddlesome at all. But . . . it's there.

Also, the small beach is not immaculate (Jeorge could stand to pick up the flotsam and bits of trash). On the other hand, the water is crystalline and cool, and the swimming is very nice. Lovely, in fact.

The cabins themselves are fine and relatively clean and comfortable but a little spotty on the details. For instance, there are kitchens, or rather kitchenettes, but virtually no pots and pans or other basic things you'd need to make even a simple spaghetti dinner. (To be fair, there is a good variety of terrific restaurants all within an easy drive.)

In the smaller cottage, which contains a large bed, there's no closet or chest of drawers or night table or room to breathe in the tiny bathroom. In other words, it's charming but seriously cramped. (The other, 2-bedroom cottage, where we put the kids, is slightly roomier.)

You do have most of what you need: plenty of towels and toilet paper; lots of pillows; a utility shed with washer and dryer; powerful A/C units; and televisions in every room -- four in all for the two small cottages, which seems like overkill. (Who goes to Florida to watch TV?)

There's also a splash pool in the middle of the grounds that's ideal for younger kids -- it comes up to their waists, more or less, and is perfect for cooling off on a hot day.

I don't want to nitpick. This place is great. To repeat the main thing: The setting is spectacular, the grounds are fairly spacious (more than an acre) and -- best of all, for our family -- you're on the beach in the Keys and not in a big standard-issue resort with hordes of other tourists. In other words, if you value privacy and a beach setting, this place is just great.

IDYLLIC!

  • 5 of 5
This is place is simply lovely. The cottages take you back to a simpler time, but still have ALL the necessary amenities - truly comfortable in every way. The private beach is remarkable, as is the dock with its fabulous views. And peacocks strolling through every day - who could ask for more!

THANKSGIVING IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent the best Thanksgiving ever at these quaint cottages in Islamorda, FL. It was so beautiful sitting on the beach and relaxing by the sea. The property was very clean and the owner provided excellent customer service. My 15year old son got to pull stone crab traps on a fishing boat. The stone crabs were delicious. We ate at Lazy Days on Friday night and I highly recommend that restaurant. Some people walking along the beach were staying at a condo down the beach and inquired about Peacock Cottages. They said they would rather be in the cottages than a condo. I have recommended Peacock Cottages to all my friends. I can not wait to visit again.

PLEASANT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Awesome: It’s the Keys in old days. Endless view. Very peaceful. A few mins from my favorite diving spot (Hens and chicken). I call the Florida Keys (Islamorada) the Caribbean of the U.S.
Can’t wait to go back.
