About Owner

We bought this condo with the intent to have this tropical retreat become our winter retirement home. We love the beautiful peaceful location and the crystal clear waters and watching pelicans fly past the balcony, sometimes so close you feel you could almost touch them. We like watching the fishing boats leave and enter Tavernier Creek just north of us. Also love the beautiful clear starry nights.

Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why Owner chose Upper Florida Keys

After looking at many condos in the Middle Keys and Upper Keys, we bought this wonderful 5th floor oceanfront end unit because of the bright open feel of the layout and wonderful panoramic views. So many condos in the Keys feel like you are in a tunnel with no side windows. The large extra window in the living room makes you feel as though you are in a home rather than a condo. We also loved that both bedrooms have a full ocean view, which is very unique, and that you can access the oceanfront balcony from both bedrooms as well as the living room. An unsuspected surprise was the privacy afforded by this property - and that the pool is situated in such a way that one doesn't feel as though in a 'fish bowl' while swimming or lounging poolside.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the wonderful sunrise and reflective sunset views and the peaceful, serene location as this condominium community is not on US 1, so there is no traffic noise. We really love that our condo is directly on the ocean with nothing between us and the wide open clear crystal blue waters. Seeing all the pelicans flying past our balcony, and watching the sea life is a fun bonus. The location is very convenient, close to many wonderful restaurants and things to do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were fortunate enough to spend a week at this condo. It is all as posted and the only surprise was it was actually as advertised. Very clean, all amenities that are needed and more. Wonderful location within the building and stunning views. Owners are very easy to work with and very fast communications. Great place! Great Owners! Would definitely recommend staying here. It's a great unit. Had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful ocean views! Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Florida Keys 4 times in the last 5 years. Islamorada is our favorite. We have stayed at Sea Gulls before, and 2 other properties. Sea Gulls wins! The condo is so very nice (just as pictured). Very well stocked ... just like home. Pool area very nice too. Great ocean views. Morning coffee watching the sunrise from the balcony is the best! So much to do in the area. Convenient to so many restaurants and grocery store. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Would definitely stay here again in our next trip to Islamorada! Thank you!

Amazing views here!

  • 4 of 5

Really loved the quiet and peaceful views from this property. Water could be seen from every room! The owner was great to deal with and responded to any concerns very quickly. There were some issues with the cleaning service that prevented me from giving this property five stars. I would, however, return if I decided to stay in the Keys again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing and so glad you enjoyed the peacefulness and water views. I am sorry the new cleaning lady arrived early on checkout day. We have since met with the owner of the cleaning service and have been assured that won't happen again.

Wish we can stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

We four adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts graciously supplied so many extras that we found useful such as kitchen items, beach chairs, coolers, ample bathroom and paper products. We only had to buy our food. And there is a large grocery and drug store within a three minute drive. Both bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious. We did not need the air conditioning at all because the air was always fresh. The view from the balcony of the sunrise was so beautiful. You do not have to worry about any noise as we are far away from traffic. We can see the nice pool from our balcony which has both sun and shaded areas.The location was very convenient because we were able to make day trips to Key West and to the Everglades. We were able to enjoyed many restaurants within a short drive of the condo. We truly cannot recommend this highly enough. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Best view in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

Being on the fifth floor gave us a great view of the ocean and the sunrise was simply breathtaking. The accommodations were great, clean and nicely updated even got to watch the World Series on the big TV. We ate out every night as there's plenty of great places to eat especially on the west side of the island as the sun was setting. Looking forward to going back again.

Fantastic sunrises and views

  • 5 of 5

Great condo and fun location. Presents as advertised. Lot to do in the area and although there was not a beach area the view was wonderful. We missed the pounding of the surf. Kayakersliked the location and it was fun to watch the fishing boats coming in/out of the harbor. The condo was very clean, neat and offered all the amenities a person could want. Beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed watching the iguanas and spent some time in the pool. Lots of local attractions to see and entertain. Marker 88 was a great restaurant as well as Island Grill both with outside dining options. We took day trips to Key West and to the Everglades which both worked out well. We were able to see alligators and manatees. We visited the Turtle Rescue Center and found that very enjoyable and worth the time.

Owner's Response: It sounds like you had a wonderful time doing many different things. There is no surf in the Florida Keys because of the world's 3rd largest living reef surrounding it. However, that wonder provides great scuba, snorkel and fishing adventures and many other watersports as well! Thanks for writing.
