The Jetson's House - Located on the prestige White Marlin Beach. Considered one of the nicest natural sand beaches in the Florida Keys with great swimming + snorkeling right off the beach. The newly built apartment has a queen bed with custom Italian cherry furnishings + cherry kitchen cabinets with granite counter tops. The bath has custom Italian glass bowl sink + the egg toilet.
There is a spectacular Bay View right from your bed with electronic blinds that can be operated right from the bed itself. There is a 26' HD LCD TV with HD Satellite + DVD player. Outside we have a gas grill + lounge chairs under the palm tree on the beach. There is 65' of protected boat dockage for your boat or rental boat. Kayaks are also available to guests at a reduced price. Sit on the beach and enjoy one of the best sunsets in the Keys.
We loved our stay at the Jetson House! I think I have 100 pictures of the beautiful sunsets alone! The beach in front of the apartment is absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained! The apartment is not very big but it was perfect for my husband and me. It’s very clean and beautifully decorated. I loved the mirror by the bed!! Gorgeous!! We loved the view of the ocean why lying in our bed or eating breakfast! The apartment has a small kitchen area and even though there is not an oven we were able to still make breakfast by using the induction hotplate to cook and it worked perfect! Jerry & Lisa provided snorkeling equipment so we took advantage of that and saw the man-made reef he made in front of the home! We made a daytrip to Key West and chose a weekday and made sure a ship wasn’t docking that day. It took about an hour and 45 minutes to get there from our place. We BBQ’d a few nights but we also got out to try some of the local restaurants. Our favorite places were Sunset Grille, Lazy Days, Lorelei’s and Habano’s. Oh and a slice of Key Lime Pie at the Key Lime Pie factory was absolutely delicious!! Lots of little shops to buy souvenirs at! We have family who are down there the month of April so we spent a lot of time with them fishing and hanging out. When we booked our place we did not realize that we were a few minute drive from them and if the canal was not in the way literally could’ve walked there in a minute so that was another huge plus for us!!! Jerry & Lisa are awesome hosts! They are blessed to have such a beautiful home and we were blessed they shared it with us for 10 glorious days!! We are absolutely coming back in April 2017 and are hoping we can stay in their beautiful apartment again!

This place is perfect for any couple that is looking to get away. My wife and I had the best time. Great views at any time of the day but especially at sunset. Completely peaceful and relaxing. Water was crystal clear and snorkeling the reef was always fun. Pleny of fish to see, mangroves snappers, grouper, nurse sharks, some reef fish and even a lobster every now and then. I even caught a tarpon from the beach as I watched the sunrise one morning. AWESOME SURPRISE!!! Jerry and Lisa are great people and very hospitable. We rented a boat and Jerry allowed us to use his dock for the week. Do not hesitate booking this place. You will love it!
I can't say enough positive about the jetson house! Sunsets are amazing. Loved snorkling the homemade reef an the room was exceptionally clean an modern! So worth the money! We will definitely be back! Thanks Jerry an Lisa for sharing your place an for the recommendations for things to do an places to eat!
My wife and I recently visited the Jetson House to celebrate our 5th anniversary. It was a perfect home base for our Florida Keys adventure. The apartment itself is great, but I can't say enough about the amazing views from the waterfront. The sunsets were unlike anything we'd ever seen. We relaxed on the lounge chairs provided on the beach underneath the shady palms. We also snorkeled right in front of the apartment and saw tons of fish at the artificial reef the owner, Jerry, has made about 100 feet off the shore. The apartment isn't large, but it has everything you need. It feels much larger with the beautiful sliding glass doors giving you a waterfront view 24/7. We grilled most every night on the gas grill and had plenty of room in the mini fridge. The location of the apartment makes it a breeze to navigate the Keys. We were able to day trip to Key Largo as well as Key West. Jerry and his wife were very hospitable and he offered some great suggestions for restaurants and things to do, such as the unforgettable brunch we had on Little Palm Island, just about a 45 minute drive from the apartment. All in all, it was a great value for the money and it's a trip we'll always remember.
We returned home to cold Minnesota yesterday and are already thinking about our next visit to the Islamorda. Jerry and Lisa have an amazing place, and our vacation was beyond relaxing! After a year chasing around our first baby, we wanted pure relaxation on our vacation. The Jetson house fit the bill. So much easier to get to than our visits to Cancun and Play del Carmen resorts, but no less wonderful. The view and beach are amazing! It couldn't get more private, your own beach-you got it! The apartment was plenty big for two, and we cooked many delicious meals with the fresh fish we caught from shore and from the 2 person kayak. The water was like bathwater, and Jerry built a reef off-shore that you can snorkel to and see lots of fish. Islamorada itself was beautiful, but we didn't plan too much so we could spend as much time with drinks in our hands on the beach as possible. We also got a tour of Jerry's 3BR canal house, amazing too and would be great if you want to stay with family or friends. Jerry will give you good recommendations for things to do and places to eat, but just staying at the Jetson house will set you up for a perfect vacation. Thank you, Jerry and Lisa!
What a wonderful find! This small space feels so much bigger with the sliding glass doors open to the beach. This place has everything you need and is stylish and immaculate. Your personal beach allows for fishing and wonderful sunsets. Jerry and Lisa are very helpful with everything you need...and yet manage to give you all the privacy you want. We will be back!!
