Bayside is a first floor apartment overlooking the water. Bayside is located on a small resort property nestled in a native hammock on Florida Bay. An easy 90 minute drive from Miami International Airport, this property is located in the heart of Islamorada, directly on Florida Bay. Bayside is fully air conditioned and there are ceiling fans throughout. The kitchen is modern and equipped with all the necessary appliances. The property is a nature lovers dream with resident fish, lobster, an octopus and an occasional manatee in the marina, iguanas that sun themselves by the boat basin and pelicans, egrets and osprey that fly in for periodic visits. Our boat basin can accommodate boats up to 26 feet in length and dockage is included in the rental.
The property is private and secluded, away from traffic and noise, yet is convenient to many of the best restaurants and attractions in the Keys. A variety of shopping is nearby. Sunsets over the water of Florida Bay are breathtaking. Well behaved pets are welcome, please inquire.
Bayside has a master bedroom with a king size bed and it's own bathroom. There is a second bath. There is a new queen size Murphy bed in the living room. The living room and dining area are bright and sunny. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, range and microwave, dishwasher, icemaker, coffee pot, blender, dishes and pots and pans. A barbecue is provided to grill your fresh catch. The entertainment center has a TV with cable services, a DVD player, and stereo should it rain one afternoon. A clothes washer and dryer are provided. The marina has electric service and water, and has automatic lights at night.
A boat ramp is available for boats up to 17-18 feet. Trailer parking is available. Included in the rental is admission to the Islamorada Founders Park, just a short drive north to Plantation Key where you will find an olympic size pool, tennis, ball fields, and other amenities.
You're minutes away from the best back country (bonefish, tarpon, permit, snook, redfish), blue water (sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, cobia) and reef fishing (grouper, snapper, yellowtail) in the entire Florida Keys. Fishing off of our jetty in the evening is a lot of fun for the kids. Magnificent snorkeling and scuba diving sites abound in the local area. A wide range of boating activities are available year round since our area of the bay is well protected. Sea Kayaking and canoeing along our shoreline is popular. Of course water skiing and knee-boarding are a hit with the kids. Local shopping for clothing, souvenirs, and fishing and boating needs is plentiful. Grocery stores are convenient.
There are several local attractions if you need a day out of the sun and there are several . Key West is a day-trip away.
Bayside is an unique place, and the people who visit, both owners and guests, feel very special about the property. The privacy is wonderful, the accommodations are new and clean, the property peaceful, and the access to the fishing is the best in the Keys, indisputably. We hope you will also find it as special as have we, and will add your name to the growing list who return to enjoy the most gorgeous sunsets and the best fishing and diving in the world.

About Lloyd Wruble
WE are Linda and Al Canal. We have lived in Florida for 30 years having moved from New Jersey. We are both retired and love the Florida Keys. My husband Al recently sold his aircraft engine rebuilding business and I have retired as a manager for a Maxillofacial Surgery practice. We are co-owners with Lloyd and Rae Wruble whose information can be found with our other property, the Keys Kottage, on the same property.
Lloyd Wruble purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Lloyd Wruble chose Islamorada
We purchased this beautiful property from a friend who has moved out of town. The property is beautiful and since we are retired it will give us pleasure to provide such a beautiful sanctuary for our guests. We hope to provide the same high level of service which Bernie has provided for over 17 years. All owners are avid outdoorsmen and have a passion for fishing. What greater place than the Florida Keys to spend a vacation?
What makes this Condo unique
Bayside, and the property we know as Holiday House, is a unique property unlike anything in the keys. It is small and private, yet the owners and guests who vacation here are warm and friendly. We are centrally located in the heart of Islamorada and convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, tourist attractions, marinas and fuel docks and access to the back country or the patch reefs and offshore fishing. And without a doubt this is the finest location to watch the most gorgeous sunsets over the water,........ and if you're real lucky you just might see the green flash!

Thank you Jim, we are glad you enjoyed our place. Hope to see you again next year.. Florida Keys Villas
We've loved it for 5 years and are going back
Small quiet enclave in the heart of Islamorada. A truly unique property. Spacious unit with enclosed patio, fronting the Bay. Well maintained and clean. All the amenities for a carefree vacation. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. Sunsets are to die for. We've loved it for five years and are going back.
Would not recommend to spend 1 week.....
Tiny villa, overpriced with very uncomfortable beds and we had roaches. We could hear people staying in above unit stomping around like a herd of elephants at all hours of night. Parking is terrible and foliage above parking area created a mess of leaves and flowers on parked cars/trucks. Much bigger and renovated units in same complex rent for same price as this one, unbelievable!
Tenants very unhappy upon arrival due traffic problem. Our unit is very clean, and we pride ourselves on the cleanliness. These two women knew the size of the unit before making their reservation. They were not very pleasant. We generally have 4 to 5 star reviews and regret that this review occurred. We will continue to strive to keep our tenants happy. I guess from this review we cannot please everyone.
We had an amazing time at bayside. Sunsets were incredible. Our 15 year old loved fishing off the jetty. . The condo was perfect. Once settled in you realize just how convient the location is. Iits hidden..But you can walk to stores... Bait shop and places to eat. 😊😎 A fabulous week! Been home only a day and i want to go back!
Very lovely, clean & close to the water property.
We had a wonderful time at Bayside Villa. It is super clean, a heavenly bed & the best smelling linens & laundry ever! Worth the trip to learn the secret!!!! Nice to be able to do laundry there with in villa washing machine & dryer. Great location for fabulous restaurants, Bud & Mary's Marina for fishing with Cpt. Rick Stanczyk, crystal clear water on sea wall is like having your own salt water acquarium! Other people share the area on the water with you.
We have rented other villas on this property and this one is absolutely perfect. The villa has everything you need and plenty of room. The view is spectacular. We had dolphins and manatees right off the dock. The location is walkable to stores, bars and restaurants. It is the perfect place to relax. Every night all the people staying on the island gather with cocktails to watch the sunset. Lloyd is a lovely man and a pleasure to have as a landlord. I have already booked my next stay!
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, spa, wildlife viewing, boating, paddleboarding.
