Charming, Relaxing, Beautiful location

The home is charming. The view is amazing. We stayed at the Russell Estate for a week in June 2013. Loved our time there!!! Would love to return!! My son and husband fished (and caught) right off the dock. We used the provided kayaks daily. Snorkeled some right off the dock- but less to see in comparison to the reefs out further (still fun, however). There were plenty of birds to watch, a couple of sting rays, and other fish/wildlife to see.

This was the perfect set up for a week of relaxation. Sitting in the lawn chairs, watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee just could not be beat. We did go on a fishing trip (caught Mahi Mahi and Black Fin Tuna- which we ate for lunch and dinner the rest of the week) and took a boat out to dive/snorkel as well. Both adventures were fun- but being able to relax with family was awesome!

Alex was GREAT to work with. He went out of his way to help accommodate our evolving vacation plans. We had 4 adults and 2 children in the house and had plenty of room to spread out. Initially we thought we would have additional guests and Alex was willing to help us figure out additional sleeping arrangements. The WiFi was nice plus as well.
I would stay here again... and probably will... next time we head for the Florida Keys.
Thank you, Alex, for allowing us to share in your beautiful piece of paradise!

Seems like your personal island

This place is special, part of the home of those who founded Matecumbe (Islamorada), the Russell Estate, you are on the ocean in the keys. This home has a dock from which you can see pelicans, cormorants, ospreys, cowfish, trunkfish, crabs, needlefish, shrimp, baracuda, damsel fish, leopard rays and horseshoe crabs.While we were there, the horseshoe crabs laid eggs at the seawall! As in all of Florida, there are those lizards on the walls and in the bush, we got a picture of one trying to sip my coffee outside on the andoronack chair. Although there are neighbors to this two acre home, we rarely saw or heard them and REALLY enjoyed the peacefulness and quiet; it's like your own private island, WOW! The owner was VERY responsive when we called about a broken dryer. Come here if you need to mend or relax!!

Owner's Response: We appreciate such a review and are grateful to this guest for taking the time to post their experience. The property is so much more than the photos describe. Often times our guests end up spending so much more of their time on the property because of its tropical splendor and peacefulness.

Wonderful Location / Charming Property

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 13, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
We stayed at the Russell Estate in September and loved it. It is located in a wonderfully central location in the Keys and yet the property itself feels very private. The house is a charming older cottage with character yet has been updated nicely. The views from the house are great, the landscaping beautiful and well maintained, and the waterfront area is huge. We enjoyed the kayaks, hammocks, and other amenities provided. Alex was extremely quick and helpful with information throughout the rental process and during our stay and we appreciated that. We would definitely stay here again, but would make it two weeks next time!

Perfect Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 15, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
We celebrated my husband's 50th Birthday along with 5 adult family members joining us at the Russell Estate. We had a fabulous week and enjoyed everything immensely! Alex was incredibly accomodating and very quick with responses when/if we did have any questions. He also gave us some great tips on great self guided kayaking areas and snorkeling. Loved learning the history of the house and the Russell family and their contribution to Islamorada--if you enjoy history, it is worth doing the research! Easy access to any location throughout the Keys. We will return, and we won't wait until my husband's 60th!

There is a reason you only see the view! I would not recommend this property for anything other than
the view. The house is old and dirty. The ac does not work, limited tv channels, no satellite or cable.
The furniture is soiled and ripped. The walls have dirt and blood on them. The kitchen range top is
cracked. There were mouse droppings in the cabinets. The linens were wet when we arrived and
had to rewash. BBQ grill had not gas! The bathrooms were super dirty and old. My father is handicapped and could not get in and around the bathrooms let alone take a shower. Not handicap
accessible at all, let alone senior friendly. I would have slept outside had it not been so windy, it
would have been far more sanitary. No way Jose!!!! House needs to be cleaned and updated.
Owner's Response: Critique is always welcomed but in this instance, we feel it is out of line and far reaching. Particularly since this complain was brought to our attention only after check out.
Our website has 16 photos, 8 of which are of the interior, including each room inside the house. The house is an original “conch” beach house built in 1935, so I guess it can be considered “old”. There are 2 a/c units and the renter only reported having a problem with one of the units the day before they checked out which was repaired immediately after it was reported. The TV service is DirecTV with non-premium channels. Apparently, he did not have all the sports and news channels he wanted. This is an exact email from his wife after complaining about the TV service: “He is dissapointed (sic) with the cable staus (sic) he is a news junky and sports junky reads 5 newspapers a day and plays many sports, he had 3 too many!”. The stove was replaced as soon as they reported it the problem. After inspecting the cabinets, we did not find mouse droppings nor have we had any prior complains. We keep extra propane-filled tanks and leave it up to the guests to replace when empty. Unfortunately, we were not told beforehand that his father required handicap accessible bathrooms. Most private rentals homes to our knowledge are not handicap accessible. There is a private owners’ cottage adjoining the main house that is handicap accessible and we would have been happy to allow entry had we known this was an issue at the time. The house is professionally cleaned upon each guest’s departure and is continually being updated with new furniture, painting, etc. We clearly let our guests know that if there are any issues when they arrive, no matter how small, to contact me immediately to find a solution. In this instance, most of the guest’s complains were not communicated until they vacated.
