For our combined family vacation for the holidays, Paradise by the Sea proved absolutely perfect! From reservation to arrival, co-owner Therese made everything easy -- sending detailed information to us in advance on the home, Islamorada and the Keys. When we asked questions about scuba diving and fishing, she researched possibilities and responded with added information that proved very helpful. Upon arrival, we found their home spotless, very well equipped, beautifully decorated for the holidays (!), and the delightful pool already warmed up for our use. The location was perfect for all of our activities including a day trip into Key West; diving, fishing, kayaking and running; family dinners (with multiple cooks in the kitchen at once); playing games on the screened-in porch, and just chilling by the pool and canal waterfront. We rent our own home near Washington DC through HomeAway/VRBO so we pay attention to the details. These folks make Paradise by the Sea a terrific vacation destination that we hope to enjoy again and recommend strongly to others!!
