Great Vacation - Great House
I would highly recommend this house for a vacation. We stayed here for my son's spring break in April 2009. The house is very new, clean and nicely furnished.
Angler's Reef is right over the bridge on Windley Key and right off of US 1. We flew into Miami and rented a car and it took us about 1 1/2 hours to drive down.
Angler's organized into a semicircle of three rows of homes and this one is in the second row. That blocked most of the trafiic noise from US 1 and was not right next to the pool noise either so it was just about perfect. The house itself was also only about 100 ft from the pool so it was very convenient.
Angler's Reef is very close Theater of the Seas and we took our son to the dolphin encounter, which he loved. If you plan to do this, make sure you call in advance to make reservations as they book up quickly. We also went fishing with Capt Mark Johnson (FloridaKeysFunFishing). He's very kid friendly and both my husband and my son loved him. Hog Heaven is right over the bridge on Windley Key before you get to Angler's Reef and although it looks a little "divey" it is a great place with outdoor seating right on the water and a dock and sandy beach to boot. My son fed the snapper chicken fingers at the every night. Bands were really good and not too loud, food was reasonable, drinks were cheap so we ate here several nights.
Tower of Pizza is about a mile or tow away and although it too was not quite upscale (a local sent us there), it was undoubtable some of the best pizza we've ever had.
We also had dinner at Morada Bay one night. The chairs are in the sand and it's a really unique, nice atmosphere but you do pay for it. Dinner and drinks for two adults and one child were $200..ouch...
Robbie's Marina is a couple of mile further on down and feeding the tarpon (and pelicans) is really cool at their dock.
Last but not least, we did a day trip to Key West. It takes about an hour and 1/2 from Angler's to get there but was lots of fun and a nice day. Kids love the conch train and glass bottom boat.
