About Craig & Martha Ellinwood

We are Craig & Martha Ellinwood and live in the beautiful state of Connecticut. We are blessed with two amazing children who are now thriving on their own in life. We love the Florida Keys and escape to our fantastic condo whenever we can, which is not often enough! Since we are both active and enjoy the outdoors, the Florida Keys is a perfect place for us to spend our time.

Craig & Martha Ellinwood purchased this condo in 2004

Why Craig & Martha Ellinwood chose Upper Florida Keys

We truly love that our guests can make use of our condo when we cannot do so ourselves. We find that people are always happy there and we are continually pleased to see that they treat it as if it was their own home. Our gated community has much to offer, is maintained to highest standards and is in an ideal location to enjoy everything that the Florida Keys has to offer.

Perfect condo for a Keys vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo and the owners are fantastic to work with. The condo complex is really well maintained and is located right where you want to be to enjoy the Florida Keys. The swimming pool has just been renovated and is beautiful. This is a gated community with lots of families so we were very comfortable allowing our kids to roam around. It is also nice also that there is a cafe on site where you can get food, drinks etc. The condo itself is accurate represented in the photos, well kept and very spacious. We cannot wait until we can return for another visit.

Great condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and spacious - great home base for a week in the Keys: easy drive from FLL and not too long to get to Key West for the day. Condo was well-stocked and had no problems. Ocean Pointe had a few minor glitches, such a no evening hours at the pool (lights hadn't passed inspection) and a crazy, out-dated internet policy that charges a fee for each and every device .... both of these issues are supposed to be resolved in the future. Owners responded quickly to inquiries and check-in was smooth. Overall, it was the sweet spot for our family of four to spread out when we were home and access all of the Keys whenever we wanted. Will recommend to any friends interesting in vacationing in Key Largo area.

We'll Be Back

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time in Rental 311664, and it was a very good week both times. The place is very clean and well stocked -- with essentials like toilet paper, bath and beach towels, coffee filters; and with extras like beach chairs, cooler for a day trip, tennis rackets and balls. The place is comfortable and a good base for a week in the Keys. (Ah, the Keys!) Ocean Pointe is a nice resort with a small beach, a pier, great pool, two good tennis courts with lights; and the birding off our balcony was as good as any trip to a birding site. Our last morning we saw four magnificent frigate birds float by. You'll love watching the pelicans drifting along. The view of the ocean from this unit is very good (partially blocked by the unit next door, but still very good). We hope to be back again, if you don't book this before we do.

Always Great!!

  • 5 of 5

We come here every year for the month of January because we absolutely love this condo, the amenities in the gated community and the location which is perfect to enjoy all that the Florida Keys has to offer. The owners are also a large part of the reason we come back, they are so nice and are very responsive. The unit has all that you need for a fantastic vacation....we just love it!

Excellent stay.... we never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (3 children ages 12, 9, and 2.5) stayed for a week at this condo. We absolutely loved our stay! Once we got our bearings, we realized that Ocean Pointe is a great location. The gated community is clean, well kept, and with lots of amenities. The kids enjoyed the community pool and I enjoyed being able to buy a yummy adult beverage while hanging out there.

The condo is exactly how it is represented by the pictures and was well stocked. Our family was able to fit comfortably in the rooms and we really appreciated having a washer/dryer to use. The owner was VERY responsive, which made me very comfortable with booking and for our first trip to the Keys. I really loved the ocean view from the living room/kitchen counter and I agree with another guest that the top floor is very quiet and allows for a lot of natural light. Overall, our stay was fantastic and we hope to be able to return sooner rather than later!

For fun activities that are really close to the condo, check out:

-Paddle! The Florida Keys (right over the bridge in Islamorada) and Paddle88 which is a few more miles down the road to take a Paddle board tour through the mangroves, rest on a chill raft, or rent a kayak for an hour.

- Loved Marker 88 restaurant right next to Paddle88. The food was delicious!

-Fresh Press Cafe is a few buildings down in the same strip as Paddle! and I really enjoyed my coffee and pastries there.

-Robbie's Marina in Islamorada was a HUGE hit with the kids. Feeding the tarpon and a fishing tour on the party boat was a highlight of the vacation. We didn't realize it, but Robbie's is like a little marketplace with little businesses like shave ice stands, gourmet popcorn, artwork, souvenirs, shirts, and jewelry. The Hungry Tarpon restaurant was fantastic for lunch.

- Pennekamp State Park was great for a morning of snorkeling in Key Largo. It's rocky there so definitely bring water shoes. We didn't get a chance to go on a snorkeling tour there, but the kids enjoyed hanging out in the swimming areas and snorkeling on their own.

- A longer car ride, but WELL WORTH IT - Bahia Honda State Park. It's about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the condo, but the ride is easy and the beach/park was amazing. We rented a kayak there and all the kids had a blast with that. Sandspur beach was a slice of paradise and our best day. At low tide, the shallow crystal clear water was perfect for the kids.

Can't wait to go back!!
