Since purchasing our home at end of 2011, we have done a series of upgrades, including two major projects within just the last year. For one, we recently completed the expansion of the master bathroom. It is now the most spacious bathroom possible in EBC, with high open ceiling which shows off the natural wood beams above. The shower’s surrounding walls and floors are beautifully tiled and enclosed with glass and stained glass window feature. To top it off, we installed a new spa-like rain-like shower with multiple body sprays which gives the very best showering experience possible, even better than many 5-star retreats. My wife, a fully licensed designer, created this luxurious bathroom area. As part of this same project, we upgraded and redesigned the first floor bathroom. This included adding a new awesome “over-head rain” shower.
The Kitchen & Living Areas:
The other major project was the complete expansion of our kitchen. It is now the most spacious and functional kitchen in EBC. We also supplied our kitchen with just about EVERYTHING that you may need for creating delicious family meals. So you simply step and you can enjoy cooking while still being engaged with everyone.
The kitchen has an open design that flows with the rest of the first floor. On one side of the kitchen is a breakfast area for morning coffee and chats. While on the other side, there is a large and inviting family friendly table and entertainment area.
First floor has very comfortable open layout, which is very accommodating for families. We offer the newest entertainment technology TV / DVD player / secure WiFi / Roku / cable channels, Sony stereo, and a special option of Internet connected tiny computer viewed from 37” TV screen and more. Plus a small library of books / magazines and some music DVD and movies.
Our backyard is very private due to wall and surrounding trees, gardens, privacy wall on one side. Our personal semi-private backyard patio is furnished with complete outdoor patio furniture (table, shade umbrella, chairs, and tiki torches). For the grill master, we have a very functional BBQ with two propane tanks ready to go.
Bedrooms & More:
Our place has 2 full bedrooms, plus a nice large loft area. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed (with great high-quality comforter, sheets, and pillows) and digital Samsung cable TV on wall. We get many compliments on comfort and sleep on our high-end mattress, with many asking us for the mattress brand.
The 2nd bedroom is very spacious with two full size beds and a comfy foldout bed. There is also an open loft area that has two twin beds. All rooms, including loft, have their own Comcast Cable TVs (4 in all).
Home Office Area:
We created a separate area for working, studying, reading or just playing on a computer. We have a desk & new high-end new highly comfortable executive chair, extra flat panel monitors, keyboard/mouse, and printer. These are all ready to connect to your personal laptop. This area is fully stocked with even Dell and Lenovo laptop power supplies.
Too Many Amenities to Count:
We have numerous additional amenities to our vacation home. This includes some bikes (2 for adults), various size snorkeling gears (with diver/snorkeling flag), 4 to 5 higher end tennis equipment, fishing gear and net, beach floats, beach chairs, picnic coolers, a large array of beach towels, beach bags, sand castle building stuff for kids, various board games, balls, Frisbees, hats, mosquito zapper, and the list keeps growing. You can take these to local parks so you will not need to rent as much stuff. (If not sure, just ask us. I’m pretty sure that we have it.)
All comfortable bedding, linens, bath towels and towels included. (No cheap 'sand paper feeling' towels or linen found here.) You walk in and all beds are made. (No bed in a bag found here.)
Our Special Location:
Our condo is in a private with 24-7 onsite security and yet everything is close by. Our townhouse is a very short walk to the pool and clubhouse. The big heated pool surrounded by lounge chairs, the fishing pier and private beach area. Manatees come by swimming around the EBC fishing pier / boat dock.
Due to the picturesque EBC shoreline (with its small lighthouse, boats), it provides incredible daily sunset photo ops. So bring your camera and a favorite drink to relax in the beach chairs in this family friendly setting as the sun goes down.
You are within walking distance to Founders Park Complex, which offers a large Olympic sized pool with diving boards, large sandy beach area equipped with small boats and activities for renting, ball fields, walking jogging bicycling trails, full basketball court, large soccer and baseball fields, modern skate and BMX ramps, Olympic size pool, kiddie water park and more.

All situated in Islamorada, the Sport Fishing Capital of the World.
My wife has prepared a 3-ring binder with information about the local area (site seeing, local events, many discount coupons, maps, and more). Our home is surrounded by plenty of great places to eat. Just read our reviews and guestbook for ideas of best eateries and fun things to do. Plus we will be available for any questions via text messenging before and during your vacation.
Our townhouse is kept super clean. Absolutely NO Smoking in unit. Sorry, no pets are allowed by condo association rules. No carpeting, just smooth high-end tiles & wood flooring, marble floors & counter, washer/dryer, screened doors. and ceiling fans to circulate the air in all rooms.

We do request all inquiries have phone number and number of the number guests clearly stated. Also please check calendar to see if available. Please ask any important question or even an extra clarification to help you with your decision. It's your vacation. Believe me, if an owner is offended it simply means that his place was not for you.
MONTHLY RENTAL COMMUNITY:
Community rules calls for monthly rental policies. So we use that as our guide and so may prorate for a given month.
We recently purchased Executive Bay Club Vacation Home condo and quickly fully renovated its kitchen, both bathrooms, expanded patio, and made numerous functional upgrades, such as adding a full wireless office.
I grew up in New England. So I know about cold. I grew up rooting for all the local Boston Teams. Of course, the Red Sox and Patriots broke my heart for many, many years. I graduated from University of Rhode Island and then went on to work in Information Technology for many major corporations. Along the way, I got to live in Connecticut and Michigan. All great places, but very, very cold in winter and spring.
While my wife is from the Caribbean Islands. She is a certified interior designer for a full service architectural interior products distributorship and furniture dealership in South Florida. We have been married for twenty years and have two daughters ages 19 and 21, plus our Yorkie named Thor.
My wife is the one who showed me the importance of taking family and our special get-away vacations. We have vacationed in numerous US cities, throughout the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico, as well as traveled to Europe (Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Malta and England). Yes, we have created great vacation memories for ourselves!
So we truly hope that you will find the Florida Keys, Islamorada, and our Executive Bay Club Vacation Home very special and a place where you can create your own lasting memories.
Since we enjoyed snorkeling and diving, site seeing, and the area’s good food, we had been coming down to Islamorada & Key Largo. We always dreamed of owning a second home right here in the Keys. Finally, a good friend told us about Executive Bay Club. We came down and visited him at his place in EBC and simply fell in love. We saw first hand the beautiful family oriented pool and clubhouse. From EBC’s private boat dock, we traveled out on his boat and took in all the wonderful relaxing water adventures and returned just in time for the spectacular gulf sunset. I think that we were completely sold with that final sunset!
Having done so much traveling, we know that EBC is a special place. It is so easy to just relax reading or listening to music by the pool. While there are plenty of opportunities to add excitement of the local destinations. These are as close as the EBC dock or Founders Park next door.
By the way, EBC is only nice scenic 1.5 hours from Miami and South Beach and just about 2 hours of beautiful driving scenery away from Key West.
You will enjoy the numerous amenities offered by Executive Bay Club, such as the bay front heated pool, which is conveniently right next to air-conditioned clubhouse and lounge, outdoor patios and community BBQ cooking areas with tiki huts, and plus two immaculate lighted tennis courts (rackets provided).
Next take a two-minute stroll over to the private sandy beach area and take a dip in the ocean water, or sit in one of the various beach chairs and just take some sun. Don’t forget to come back here and wait for the beautiful sunsets. You will treasure memories and the photos of your spectacular waterfront sunsets.
The days are as active as you want in Executive Bay Club. You will see folks walking, riding bikes, or skating around the complex. You can fish alone on the pier / boat dock or just sit and read as the gulf waters surround you. You can walk over next door to Founders Park Sports Complex, which has walking and cycling trails, soccer fields, baseball fields, skate park with incredible boarding ramps, white sandy beach, Olympic size pool, special events and much more... Founders Park has marina with boat slips and ramp.
Leave all concerns behind since Executive Bay Club is a private gated community, with 24 hour security. Your biggest concern is what to do each day, what music to listen to, and where to have lunch and dinner. (I recommend that you load your iPod with Jimmy Buffet.)
Our vacation home is smack in the middle of Islamorada. We are surrounded by numerous excellent restaurants within a short drive. Our area is very peaceful, away from any noise. We enjoy taking our bikes out and about (on the bike paths).
As taken from some of our guest reviews: 'The condo is located in a secure, gated community. The facilities & grounds are clean and very well maintained. The condo itself was perfect for our needs. It was clean and equipped with everything we could possibly need, and we quickly felt as though we were at home. The owners were readily available to respond to any questions or concerns and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay would be a memorable one.' Another wrote 'fun at Founders Park (beach, volleyball court, baseball fields) which is walking distance next door... The sunsets are beautiful! All the beds were so comfortable and the upstairs bathroom is amazing!'
