My Grandfather bought this property back in the 1970's. My brothers and I spent our childhood summers, holidays and any chance in between visiting him as often as we could. I developed a love for the water and all the wonder of the Keys at a very young age and to this day every sunset still amazes me. He taught us to cherish all the beauty that surrounds this special place and to share it with as many as we could. I moved to our family property shortly after my grandfather passed away and I have been looking after it ever since. I have continued sharing our different cottages to couples and families searching to find a unique paradise to create lasting memories of there own...
We enjoyed the Conch House very much. It was exactly as described. The home was well appointed with everything we needed. The decor was lovely and very comfortable. The entire property was beautifully landscaped and we enjoyed the beautiful views of the bay. I would highly recommend this property to my family and friends.
We just returned from our 3rd stay in the Conch House and again had a most wonderful and restful time. The cottage is very well appointed and spotless. Comfortable bed, everything you need is here. Snorkeled with a huge tarpon, slightly less huge baracuda, sting ray and a couple of nurse Sharks, all right off the dock. My husband limited out his lobster, making him a most happy man. We would recommend the Conch House for anyone looking for total relaxation. Lori, somehow you have improved perfection. Hoping to be back next Spring
We arrived home last night after staying a week in the Conch House. When I viewed this listing and the pictures on VRBO, I was so intrigued but I worried that it was too good to be true. Well it was everything (and much more) than we could have hoped for! When we arrived we received a very warm welcome from Lori and a complete tour of the property. IMMACULATE!!! Everything is SO well kept and clean! The Conch House is lovely and the view, breathtaking! We loved the sophisticated but charming decor. During our stay, Bobby (Lori's husband) was extremely responsive to our needs. At one point, a fishing pole broke. He was back with a replacement in minutes. Propane was getting low in the grill, immediately changed it. The shared property was not an issue for us at all because everybody who stayed there was very respectful of each other. And there is enough room for everybody to move around and still have a lot of privacy. We enjoyed the dock and my 16 year old son fished constantly. We also kayaked everyday and enjoyed going to a nearby restaurant within walking distance, Mile Marker 88. Had two awesome dinners there and my husband and I kayaked over and had drinks a couple times. My 13 year old daughter and I walked a mile up the road to Founder's Park and worked out everyday on the soccer fields and track. Awesome! We took the snorkeling tour at John Pennekamp State Park. Highly recommend!!! A great way to get out on the bigger water. Loved feeding the tarpon at Robbies. But our very favorite thing to do here was to grill out in the AMAZING outdoor kitchen overlooking the Bay and watch the spectacular sunsets. Then the firepit for some more relaxation and of course, smores! The whole experience was perfect in every way and this was one of the most unforgettable vacations our family has every taken. So very relaxing!!!
We just returned from our second winter trip to Islamorada. We booked Bayside Cottages based totally on the online information and it surpassed all expectations. We stayed in the Conch House even though we did not need the second bedroom. It has an incredible view of the bay and the beautiful yard. This is not a crowded resort and it has a few quirks - like a tiny bathroom and a stubborn sliding door, but frankly that's part of the charm. The linens are high quality, the king bed is very comfortable, the entire cottage is spotless and decorated in a contemporary, beach style. The kitchen is well supplied and has new full size appliances. We never turned on the TV (the best measure of a great vacation) so I can't speak for that. We caught mangrove snapper every evening off the dock and even had a visit from a pair of curious dolphins. Everything you will need is provided here, which really makes this a great value. Bobby and Lori are great hosts and were wonderful to work with during the rental process. If you want to totally relax and feel like you're staying at a friends' luxury beach cottage -- then, Bayside Cottages will not disappoint. We loved it and plan to return.
We recently stayed a week in the Conch House. The cottage is spotless and the king bed was very comfortable with nice linens. There are plenty of bath towels and two huge baskets of beach towels. The kitchen is well stocked and has everything needed to cook a meal or make cocktails. The bathroom is very small, but the shower was large enough. The back porch has both covered and open areas to give you a choice of shade or sun. The house has a great view of the bay and the beautiful yard. The outdoor kitchen is wonderful for grilling evening meals, and has a full size fridge to make meal prep easier. There is also a tiki hut with comfortable seating and a beach sitting area with chairs and a hammock. We caught mangrove snapper off the dock every night and even got a visit by a pair of curious dolphins. The boat house has fishing gear, snorkel gear, floats, and coolers. We could walk to the MM88 restaurant and bar and it was a short drive to other attractions. Everything you will need for a relaxing vacation is provided and Lori and Bobby make you feel very welcome.
My husband and I just returned from a vacation in the Keys at the Conch House. This place is exactly as advertised, perfect in every way. Lori and Bobby work hard to create a low keyed atmosphere and their attention to detail is amazing. Our week was relaxing, restful, and we wanted for nothing. All equipment is already there, no need to bring a thing.....we snorkeled and kayaked every day...my husband was able to fish and lobster to his heart's content....we will be going back. The Conch House was exceeding clean and well appointed. Loved everything about it. Our only regret was having to leave.We would gladly recommend the Bayside Cottages to anyone.
