Overview

About the property

A VACATION RENTAL FOR VIEW LOVERS!

Also a great location for kayaking, paddle boarding and kite boarding and enjoy scuba and snorkel nearby. Islamorada is the sport fishing capital of the world!

This well-cared for 5th Floor corner/end unit condo in the Sea Gulls Condominium Complex is located in a serene, yet convenient spot at Mile Marker 90 directly on the ocean with oceanfront pool and tennis court. Two elevators take you to this lovely escape. Enjoy the pool area as it has an ocean view and tiki huts to enjoy shade and is somewhat private.

We have a fine pebble beach with tiki huts with tables and seating and charcoal grills for dining, however, you are also close to the wonderful and re-known Islamorada restaurants -- many waterfront, some have sunsets and all serve delicious food!

You are 3 minutes from PADI certified Florida Keys Dive and paddle board and kayak rentals at PADDLE in Casa Mar shops or bring your own. You can buy fresh local seafood at Casa Mar Fish Market. It is also fun to bike through adjacent neighborhoods (rent bikes or bring your own, bike storage provided on premises).

The Florida Keys Reef is the 3rd largest living reef in the WORLD, famous for scuba and snorkeling! The condo is just minutes from Founders Park, Harry Harris Park, Pennekamp State Park (for snorkeling or glass bottom boat rides), and Anne's Beach. We are also close to the Theater of the Sea which has dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows. There is a short car ride to the History of Dive Museum and the quaint Wildlife Bird Center. You are less than 2 miles from Cafe Moka and walking distance to the wonderful Old Tavernier Restaurant.

You are just a 1 hour car ride from Everglades National Park, the beautiful Miami Metro Zoo (complete with pink flamingos), outlet mall shopping, Homestead-Miami Speedway, and golf at Keys Gate. The condo is just 2 hours from Key West.

We provide you with everything you need in a home away from home. Included is free In-Unit, high-speed WIFI, flat screen cable TVs. Master bedroom suite has newer King size bed and the 2nd bedroom has 2 new EXTRA Long twin beds that convert to a comfy King bed. And a Pack N Play for a toddler. And no need to argue who gets the bedroom with the full ocean view because both bedrooms (and living room) have it! Brand new quality sofa sleeper in living room. There are ceiling fans in bedrooms and living room.

The complex is NOT on US 1 so there is NO road noise! All sliders and doors have screens so enjoy the wonderful ocean breezes. And since the balcony is covered and open on 3 sides, enjoy ocean breezes from almost every direction!

Complex includes coin-op laundries on every floor and a ping pong table in the ocean-view community room. Private covered parking space included.

SORRY, NO PETS ALLOWED per association bylaws.

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.

Perfect sunrises!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with a location in the heart of the Keys. Plenty of local eateries and a Winn Dixie if you prefer to dine in. Kitchen is stocked with anything you could need to cook with. They even had the exact pitcher we have at our house for iced tea. The pool is awesome and never crowded. The beds are very comfy with both bedrooms having ocean views and balcony access. Other long time residents said 512 was the best one in the building. We felt at home in this condo. We did a day trip to Key West and toured Hemingway's house. Plenty to do there, if that is your style. Mostly stayed local and hit the local restaurants. Fresh fish everywhere. Plenty of water activities for the willing. On site activities include tennis and ping pong with owner supplied equipment. Really well equipped condo with the vacationer in mind. Thanks.

A wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was exactly as pictured. Everything was in working order, the beds were comfortable, and the view was AMAZING! The condo's location in the Keys was just right, giving easy access to many different locations. The owners gave us plenty of suggestions of restaurants and activities...we used several of their suggestions and they were all great! We would definitely return again!

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two teenage boys. The condo amenities where great. We each had our own beds (no sharing) and really liked that the twin beds are extra long for my 6'1" son. Two bathrooms/showers. Condo is clean and has everything you need to enjoy your stay in the Keys. We were in the Keys to go diving (two boys got certified), it was a 3 minute drive to the Dive store, perfect.

Pool is nice.

Stores and restaurants are nearby.

Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We also really like that Florida Keys Dive is so close! And I am glad you like our conversion to extra long twin beds -- combined they make a better king bed as well. We loved having you...hope you come back for diving in the future.

Very spacious condo, quiet, beautiful view of water.

  • 4 of 5

Condo inside was clean and spacious. Amenities supplied were very thoughtful and plentiful. View was spectacular. Pool was great! Many good restaurants within one to ten miles. We did have some issues with the parking lot - was torn up with installation of water lines during our visit and also the structural integrity of the balconies seemed to be in question- had inspections while we were there but do not know outcome. The beach is not sand - it is tiny pebbles. Smimming in ocean very marginal here but the pool was fantastic with all new patio furniture and lots of shade as well as sun space. Tennis court was nice. Only wish we had washer and dryer in unit (there are pay machines on each floor).

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing. Many love the views and property amenities as well. Sorry the parking lot project occurred during your stay. The balconies were newly reconstructed a number of years ago and was a routine inspection. Management takes pride in keeping the property maintained.

Great view! Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained condo has a beautiful view of the ocean and is conveniently located to John Pennekampe Coral Reef Park and Founders Park for swimming, paddle boarding, boating and snorkling.

Updated kitchen is very nice, living room is very comfortable and the two bedrooms, two bath floor plan make the condo very comfortable for a family of four. Living room and both bedrooms have access to the balcony and great ocean view.

Great place for a family vacation in the Keys!
