Welcome to your Island of Dreams!

This beautiful, spacious home located on its own peninsula has everything you will need for a five star stay.

This dream home is designed to comfortably accommodate 2 families. The second floor has a symmetrical design that begins with the Great Room at the center of the home. On each side of the Great Room you will find an oversized master suite with private bath, walk-in closet, and a private entry to the rear patio. In addition to the master suites on each side of the house, you will also enjoy a spacious queen bedroom, full size closet, and access to a seperate large full bathroom. With comfort as the ultimate goal, there are three independent air conditioners for each section to allow for individualized comfort (East, West, and Center rooms).

Wrap-around windows grace the granite countertop kitchen that is not only comfortable and convenient to use, but is fully equipped with all the modern amenities and gorgeous views.

Occasionally, dolphin and manatees have used the basin as their playground. Enjoy nature all around you, with the conveniences of modern living.

Experience beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the wrap-around porch overlooking the basin, and enjoy your favorite breakfast or cocktail. Cool breezes surround you whether you're relaxing in the beach, pool, tiki hut, or floating in the salt water basin. Take a stroll along the 500+ feet of concrete dock and observe the serenity of the sea life surrounding the peninsula.

Bring your boat and in just minutes you are ocean bound and can enjoy fishing, swimming, shelling, or just cruising around Tavernier Key. Your boat can be located just steps from the home and ready to go whenever you are. The size of the property enables you to park your boat trailer comfortably and conveniently inside the gated property, as well as your vehicles.

La Isla del Sueño is our Island of Dreams - let it be yours as well.

About Gloria

We purchased the property in 1998 and completed our home in 2007. We enjoyed it tremendously for a year or so and then wished to share this wonderful experience with others. We have always loved the sun, water, and ocean breezes and we find this everytime we stay in our home.

Gloria purchased this house in 1998

Why Gloria chose Tavernier

We built our home to enjoy the view and surroundings. We also found that it suits all of our tentants well. We love the sun and surf and have always wanted to live in the Florida Keys. The location of the property and home is central to fishing, diving, and just cruising around by boat or car. The distance from Miami Intl Airport is a comfortable driving time (1 1/2 hrs), as well as going south to visit Key West(2 hrs).

What makes this house unique

I love the fact that grocery shopping and some simple amenneties are just around the corner. With a grocery store less than 2 miles away, picking up groceries is very simple. The fact that jumping on the boat and cruising down the canal to open water within 5 minutes is exceptional. Tavernier Key, just outside the light channel marker, is a great place to just relax, walk the sandbar, or watch the sun go down over the keys.

An amazing island all to ourselves!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful! Not a detail was missed and it was extremely clean and well stocked with everything you'd ever need. The boating was great with easy access to the ocean. I'd highly recommend this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a wonderful response. I am glad that you had a nice time while you stayed at our home. The easy access to the ocean, with a lit channel marker is always a plus as well. We hope to see you again in the future.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We rented another, more expensive, house in the keys last year- and this one was so much more enjoyable. It is very obvious that the owners take great pride in the home. We used the kayaks almost every day and saw manatees in the canal. This was the first time that we have rented a house where each bedroom had it's own bathroom and it was great! We loved having the small bathroom near the tiki bar too. Gloria's son Carlos was on site almost every day, and was very helpful any time that we had questions. The only negative was that the pool wasn't balanced when we arrived so there was some algae and we had to stay out of the pool for about a day during the trip.

Gloria was great to deal with and everything was clean, neat and organized. Loved the property and location in the Keys! We were able to go to Key West or Miami in about 2 hours.

We could not have been more happy & impressed with both the property, house & Gloria! The house was immaculately clean and well-stocked with all the necessary essentials and was beyond beautiful. The property was amazing with the incredible pool, views, kayaks, hamock and the tiki bar was the perfect place to enjoy dinner overlooking the water. We will definitely book this location again!

Ponte Vedra Beach


  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need to enjoy your time away from your responsibilities. Great location, beautifully furnished, and wonderful amenities. The pool is fantastic and there is no shortage of dock space. Gloria is outstanding to work with as well. We enjoyed it so much we already booked it again before we even finished our first visit! 5-stars all the way around!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We go to the keys every year for a family vacation. This is by far the nicest house we have stayed in. It has everything you need and more. Gloria is wonderful. She had the ages of the kids and bought new life vest for them to use. She thought of everything. The only problem we had, is the house is not available for the same week next year. Hopefully we will be able to enjoy it again.

Located within a generally quiet residential neighborhood, the home has all you may need. Close to movie theatre, grocery store, shopping, food, post office, hospital (just in case), and much more. Very close to many things, yet still far away to enjoy your own private luxury vacation spot.
