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.

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
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?
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!
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!
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!
What a great location! Just steps away from the bay and beautiful sunsets. Every day we would look to see what sea life would be hanging out in the private boat basin. The Bayside unit was clean and nicely decorated. We experienced some inconvenience with the replacement of the water heater and the city sewer installation, but Lloyd was very accommodating and quick to take care of the problem. The silver lining is we found a great place to stay and another great place to eat ... Islamorada Fishing Club. We hope that the Bayside is available next time we are able to come to Islamorada!
This is a hidden gem, located in prime location in Islamorada. Beautiful private marina, gorgeous sunsets, direct access to the bay and minutes away from the ocean. Condo was clean and comfortable, and Lloyd was a wonderful host. Perfect private getaway-we hope to return again soon.
Bayside has become our summer retreat. The unit is very nice, quiet and clean, the little marina just perfect. This place seems to attract wonderful, friendly people: the new owners and many of the guests we had the privilege of meeting over the past few years.
We rent a boat and go fishing whenever the conditions allow. In the evening, fishing stories, tips and tricks are exchanged over a Margarita, watching the sunset and the kids who still don't have enough and keep fishing past their bed time...
Same time next year. Friends, we'll miss you for 11 months...
My husband and I came with our 2 granddaughters to Bayside. The townhouse was clean and it was nice to have the kitchen to prepare some of our meals. It was also nice to have 2 bathrooms and a washer and dryer.
There is a ladder off of the pier that enabled my girls to go in swimming. They loved looking at the fish and lobsters in the rocks. There is no sandy beach on the property, but Founders park is not far and the rental includes a resident pass so that renters can utilize the beach there.
We all enjoyed our stay and if we had a boat to bring, there was a place to keep it.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, spa, wildlife viewing, boating, paddleboarding.
