Beautiful, private cottages

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property. Full kitchen, comfy beds. We had most meals on the deck listening to the birds and facing the water. Used the swimming beach and kayaks. If we got too hot, back inside to great air conditioning

banana cabana , this place is paradise

  • 5 of 5

the cottage was just as it was described.

the photos in the listing are exactly what you see when you arrive.

the cottage and grounds are both very well maintained (no bugs)

I would highly recommend this place to every one

Over all we thought this place was awesome ,and our dog loved it too. It was so peaceful we had to stay an extra day. I would not recommend snorkeling with the manatee out front, but my wife just had to do it. (the thrill of her trip) We saw abundant sea life snorkeling nearby.It was the best vacation we've been on in years.The on sight management was very accommodating . We felt as though we had the place to ourselves. By far the best bang for the buck in the keys

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We're so glad you had a great stay, and it's wonderful you got to swim with the manatee who usually hangs out by our beach. Please come back again! ~Tanya Cleary, owner, Dream Bay Resort

Keep that secret hideaway a secret!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is very special and goodspirited. Something in between 68s and Woodstock.

Great little bunch of people living down the marina. Everybody makes you feel welcome on first sight. The Cabana is clean, cosy and is equipped with everything one needs. But it's just the atmosphere that counts on Tanya's premises. And this I'd say is unforgettable!! South Beach and Key West people seekers please keep out.

A car is a must. Best coffee nearby: Denny's Latin Café. (half a mile up north this side). Great food: "The hungry Tarpon" at Robbie's marina. Isla Morada, about 23 miles down south bayside.
