Why Lori Singleton chose Islamorada

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 my husband and I have been looking after it ever since. As of 2010 we have been renting out our different cottages to couples and families searching to find a unique paradise to create lasting memories of there own...

Greatest Destination in Islamorada!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a 2 week stay at Bayside Cottages staying in the Bay View house. This was our 4th year vacationing at this location. Every year seems better than the year before! The property is the cleanest and best maintained property in Islamorada. Every year the owners Lori and Bobby who are beyond accommodating and friendly have added more luxury to the cottages and grounds! This listing is one that is more beautiful and amazing than words or pictures can describe. The grounds are beautifully lit at night and the amenities provided make it truly a place where all you need to bring is your clothes! The Bay View Cottage is beyond clean and so beautifully decorated and equipped! The screened porch provides the most beautiful view of the gorgeous landscaping and the bay. The summer kitchen by the dock provides the opportunity for evening meals with new found friends and the most beautiful sunsets! The covered dock with thousands of fish underneath for snorkeling and a relaxing swim after a day of fishing just adds one more awesome way to relax on this property. The boathouse provides for guests everything you need to fish, snorkel, kyak or just float! This is also a sandy beach with lounge chairs and a hammock if you just want to soak up the sun and the view of the bay. A fire pit with chairs surrounding it gives you just one more way to relax in the evening alone or with new friends vacationing at The Bayside Cottages. I highly recommend this destination and truly can not give the owners or property enough stars to express how wonderful they or the destination is! Already booked to return next summer and counting the days ;)

Serenity

  • 5 of 5
Immaculate, quiet, beautiful, peaceful. Imagine starting your morning with a cup of coffee of the dock watching a pod of dolphins go by and then ending your day with a cocktail on the dock watching the sunset. This property is beautiful. There are 4 cottages on the property but you never feel "crowded". There is ample space for everyone to enjoy. Even with two other cottages booked, it was so peaceful and quiet. Bayside was gorgeous. Very very clean which is important to us. The kitchen was fully stocked and it was so clean, I thought everything was newly purchased! The pictures show exactly how the property is and along with the lovely dock, there is a sitting area with a fire pit, kayaks and an outdoor grill/dining area. The property is pet friendly and both of the rented cottages had pets but were very well behaved and didn't bother us at all. This was so much better than a 5 star resort!

The perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bayside Cottages. We stayed in the Conch House, and it was very clean and had everything we needed to make our vacation perfect. We have stayed at places before that say that they have a fully equipped kitchen, and that meant one pot and one pan, but this place really felt like home. The kitchen cabinets were full with everything we needed to prepare meals there. We used the outdoor kitchen and had a blast. There was nothing that we were lacking. The bed was also very comfortable, which is a necessity for a perfect vacation.

Our dog had a great time at the Bayside cottages too. He was able to run around without a leash. He would swim and chase lizards all day long while we snorkeled. The boathouse was full of things to use in the yard and in the water. We played cornhole, caught lobster, kayaked, or just relaxed in the hammock. It was the perfect place to stay, and we will be back. The owners are so nice and helpful if we had questions. We can't say enough good things about this place!

Perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5
The lovely location and helpful owners made this the best holiday, ever! Because it is on the bay side you get amazing views. Sitting on the boat dock with a glass of something, watching the sunset it is hard to imagine anywhere more idyllic. There are some lovely restaurants very close by, follow Lori's recommendations for the best places. If you love fishing, or wildlife in general this place is perfect. My husband saw manatees right in by the boat ramp, and you can see fish, crab and lobster milling about in the water. Just a breathtaking location. We stayed in the bayside cottage and it is very clean, beautifully furnished and the bed is super comfy. Well worth travelling all the way from the UK for a laid back, beautiful, friendly experience, I can't recommend this place enough.

Nicest Property In Islamorada

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Best describes this listing. We loved everything about the Bayview house...where to begin describing it is the issue! The view from the screened porch looking down to the bay is spectacular, the house is spacious, impeccably clean, furnished beautifully, equipped with a side by side refrigerator including an ice maker and a dishwasher....spaciious kitchen with island and everything you need to prepare your catch of the day. The bedroom has a king size bed that is more comfortable than my own bed. Lots of ceiling fans and central air....all the comforts of home set on the bay. Just pack your clothes and toletries as everything else is provided.
The property is pet friendly with a huge, beautifully landscaped yard affording the best sunsets...the yard is so pretty at night due to the soft lighting on the trees and bushes. Then there is the tiki hut, built in grill, and 2 huge seating areas for outside dining. This area has a refrigerator filled with condiments for everyone's use and sink for quick clean up when you are done! Beyond that is a covered dock with another big table for relaxing or dining waterside.
The water around the dock is so clear and loaded with fish for great snorkeling or just cooling off with a swim after fishing. The water is lit at night for viewing the a variety of fish. Mike caught and released a Tarpon during our stay. He has fished his entire life yet the thrill of this catch is one he will never forget!
There is a boathouse stocked with floats, masks, fins and snorkels for use by guests. Also, available is 3 kayaks! What more do you need?!
Lori and Bobby, the owners, are amazing, sweet, kind and very accommodating. They work so hard and keep putting money back into the property to keep it beautiful.
This is our 2nd visit to The Bayside cottages. We have 2 Sheba-Inu dogs who love it as much as we do! Can not wait to stay in the Bayview House again next year.

I can not recommend this property enough. It includes 3 homes providing a perfect setting for a family reunion or the opportunity to make new friends as we did. Thanks again Lori and Bobby for another wonderful vacation filled with memories that will last a lifetime :)
Sincerely,
Mike, Kathy, Kobe and Roxy

This bayside property is amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Bayside Cottages in April of 2012 and we can't wait to return next year! The accomodations were perfect, and the outside space is incredible. We spent hours down at the dock relaxing, swimming, fishing and kayaking. Lori and Bobby were great hosts and gave us many recommendations of great local places so we could truly experience the Keys. Can't wait to return!
