Unique Anglers Reef home sleeps 8, UNOBSTRUCTED OCEAN VIEWS from inside and out!
About Steve Sepanak
We are beach people who love water views! We've owned oceanfronts and currently live in a bayfront home, but none of our home views can match the ocean views and colors of the Islamorada Flats right outside of our Anglers Reef home - from deep blues and greens to tans and aquas. And our guests always tell us we have the best location and views in the complex - we agree! We also own one of the limited number of boat slips in the Anglers lagoon, so we can offer our guests an optional boat slip if desired. There is direct access to the deep Atlantic via our own channel and also to the Gulf and Backcountry via nearby Snake Creek. We also love to kayak so having a beach for easy launching is great and many vendors will deliver and pick up rental yaks.
Steve Sepanak purchased this House in 2008
Why Steve Sepanak chose Islamorada
Having visited the Keys for a month in 2007, we searched north and south for the right area for a purchase. Islamorada quickly became the obvious choice for many reasons: 1. An easy ride from Miami or Ft Lauderdale airports. 2. Great upscale shopping and many great restaurants just minutes away - some even walkable! 3. Great fishing! With boating access to the ocean plus convenient access to the Gulf and Backcountry via Snake Creek. We specifically chose Anglers Reef for: 1. The great design, beauty and security of this gated complex. 2. The deep private channel through the flats to the ocean. 3. Easy gulf/backcountry access via Snake Creek just a few hundred yards north.. 4. The location of this specific home within Anglers -- on the southeast corner of the development, the closest home to the south beach, and one row back from the pool (close but quieter than overlooking the pool!). 5. The design of the home - the only one of its kind in Anglers - with amazing views from every room. 6. One of the few homes with large wraparound decks - most have small balconies. 6. The convenience of having a 3rd private bedroom - most homes only have two. These are some of the reasons we chose this area, this complex and this particular home. And some of the reasons we know you too will have a great vacation here!
What makes this House unique
Everyone raves about the views from inside and outside the home, and the specific location. They love to relax on our large decks with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise and the flats fisherman, or enjoying a dinner of fresh-caught fish or a cocktail (or two) in the evening. We also have the 3rd bedroom (plus the pullout queen sleeper sofa in the living room) so we can sleep 6 comfortably in bedrooms or 8 total with the sleeper. There is even an electric fireplace in the living room for some unique ambiance on cool mornings or evenings in the winter. There is a fully equipped kitchen with Viking appliances, a full-size washer and dryer, flatscreen TV's in all bedrooms and in the living room, and a quality BBQ grill on the deck with spare propane tank. As a result, we have many repeat guests - so please book your week early!

No place better than Angler's Reef
This was our second stay at Angler's Reef and our first time at Steve's beautiful house. We needed a larger space. The whole process was effortless and Steve (the owner) was always responsive and helpful when we had questions. Steve also provided a helpful Welcome book that answered any house questions. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking for a big group. The house has big wrap around porches on both the first and second floor with plenty of porch seating for all. We spent hours each night on the upper porch watching the stars and water. Can't wait to return!
Best vacation on the best property! Couldn’t have been better unless we could have stayed longer!
This is a beautiful home and made for a really nice base for our vacation. There is a great pool and available boat slips right in view of the house. The little beach is a great kayak launch, too. There are reefs, a sandbar, and lots of other things to do very close to the property, and we had a blast. The house is very well stocked, and we had everything we needed. The owner was quick to help and very friendly. The views from the porches were amazing!
Great house, beautiful views.
The house is in a gated community. Very safe and easy for an extended family gathering as we could rent many houses. This was the biggest and is oceanfront. Boat slip right outside the door. 3rd bedroom is twin/trundle.
Thanks Caroline. As discussed, I was disappointed in only a 4-star review as every other review we've had for the last 10 years has been 5 stars. In my follow up call, I understand you had a great time except that the Comcast WIFI service was weak while you were there. Sorry this happened -- as we had not had any concerns from prior guests I can only assume it was a temporary Comcast issue. I will check with them however.
Great property, great views, great vacation.
Great family time in Islamorada
Location of unit was great and had a beautiful view. We went with a group of 4 families and everyone had a great time at Anglers Reef. Very convenient to all activities & restaurants in the area. Very easy boat rides to snorkel spots & sandbar. Unit could be updated a bit & dock assigned to unit is fairly long walk from unit. Minor issues, would definitely come back.
Islamorada Vacation Rental License VR-097. Anglers Reef Islamorada is located in the Upper Keys, 90 mins from Miami. Our home directly overlooks the Atlantic with unobstructed ocean views. Angler's Reef has a deep channel to the Atlantic, and is near Snake Creek for easy Gulf and backcountry access. Islamorada fishing is world reknown and known as the 'Sportfishing Capital of the World'. A boat slip in the Anglers Reef lagoon is available for $250/wk plus tax. Besides some of the best fishing in the world (Gulf or Ocean), there is parasailing, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling & diving - all within minutes. When not on the water, enjoy pampering spas, exclusive shops & boutiques and a variety of restaurants. Nearby is John Pennekamp State Park. Just down the street is Theater of the Sea: swim with dolphins, sea lions and rays or take an eco snorkel cruise, all in a beautifully landscaped setting with private lagoon. Founder's Park is a mile north, with heated pool, swimming beach, tennis, fishing jetty, skateboard park, marina, walking trails, dog park, basketball court & more. Enjoy 'full moon' parties at MM 81.6 or motor out to the 'Sandbar' off of Whale Harbor for a low tide party.
Other Activities: kayaking, shopping, diving
Golf: We aren't golfers (it's hard to catch a fish with a golf club!), but I understand that there are golf courses in Marathon and one in or near Key West, as well as just north up toward Homestead and Fla City.
