About JoAn Geissler

Grew up in Montreal Quebec Canada. Came to the USA in 1969 became citizens and we are proud to be Americans. We have to lovely 2 daughters, 7 grandchildren. We have been landlords for 36 years and work as a team. Married for 53 years.

JoAn Geissler purchased this house in 1990

Why JoAn Geissler chose Islamorada

We traveled to the Keys for many years because of my husband's love of scuba diving and his dream was to one day be able to afford a house on a canal where he could one day retire to. One day I just decided to say , lets look at houses and I fell in love with this house and even though it seemed out of reach for us at the time, I thought with many sacrifices we could do it. We struggled for a while but we made it happen by renting it and we are still renting it as we are not yet retired and as landlords it seems one never retires, but no complaints, we are happy to share our vacation home for others to enjoy . We continue to improve and ad new things and always appreciate ideas to make our vacation home as friendly as possible.

What makes this house unique

What I fell in love with the moment I saw the house was the pool and pool deck and it's uniqueness along with the chiki bar and deep sailboat canal. The large upper deck viewing the pool and canal was also very impressive. I just had to get this dream house no matter how hard I had to work to get it... and though it was a crazy idea we made it happen. My husband was just as excited about the prospect of having his dream house and we plowed forward and never regretted it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of 5 (kids 6 13&16) stayed for a week in early march and had an incredible time here. The house is just beautiful, top notch neighborhood and we felt very safe and welcome here. Very close by to many activities that the keys have to offer. The pool was perfect temp and just enough shade to enjoy all day long and even at night sooo warm. Elegant outdoor lighting and the tiki bar is huge. We fished in the canal and saw everything from tropical fish to squid and even 5 foot tarpon jumping! The dock made boat rental a breeze, being on the water in islamorada is amazingly beautiful and the house is only maybe 1 or 2 miles to the popular sandbar in the ocean. Having the computer at the house kept the teenagers busy when mom and dad just wanted to grill and hang-out at the house. Joan and her manager Barbara are delightful women to do business with and they make you feel very welcome. If you want tropical paradise without the rowdy crowds and the time to tick-tock like we did, it doesn't get better than this. Thanks Joan

We stayed at this home last summer in June 05, We had the best time. The house and property is very well kept. We enjoyed the pool and bar very much we had a blast. The area is very nice and peaceful and great fishing !! We booked this house again for the summer of 06 as well. If interested in booking property I would highlt recommend it. Also Joanne is a really nice lady and very accomodating.

Great House, Great Week

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed 2nd week of May on a fishing vacation. Great location with immediate ocean and gulf access. Saw two 5' tarpon cruising right in the canal! Very wide canal with 70' of dock. Home is very well equipped, maintained and was very clean. Especially enjoyed the pool after a hard day of fishing. The owner was wonderful and responded immediately to questions as we were going through the rental process. We visit the Keys every year and will definitely be back at Venetian Tropics!

We've stayed at this home twice in the past and are scheduled there again this April. The owner is very nice and accommodating. It's very comfortable and the pool and tiki bar are lots of fun. It's in an upscale area of beautiful homes. If you're a boater, there is quick access to the bay and ocean. Islamorada is our favorite spot in the Keys with the best restaurants and things to do. Can't wait for April!
