About Greg Feeley or Michele Rosborough

Greg and Michele are married with 4 children in total, 2 in College, a 5th Grader and Kindergartner. We live in Cary, North Carolina which is a suburb of Raleigh. We also have 2 Newfoundlands (they look like black St Bernards). We have owned our home in Islamorada since 2000 and prior to that, owned a condo in Truman Annex in Key West, FL since 1993. I work in Finance for Cisco and lived/worked in England from 1998-2000 and Dublin, Ireland from 2000-2004 with IBM. I enjoy spending time with my family, Travel, Islamorada, Sports, and listening to boring financial shows and the History Channel (since I am always working). Michele is from Dublin- Ireland, is a Management Consultant and has been an avid world traveler both for work and recreation.

Greg Feeley or Michele Rosborough purchased this house in 2000

Why Greg Feeley or Michele Rosborough chose Upper Florida Keys

Close proximity to local shops, dining and Marinas. This is one of the largest property sites in Islamorada with a private sand beach and private canal dockage across the street. I purchased this home primarily due to the size of the oceanfront land as well as its charm in being a ground level home with lots of windows for viewing the beautiful surroundings (homes built after 1974 in the Keys have to be elevated) One of the more important considerations was the safety for kids and that is was an authentic Keys Conch home. It was built in 1922 and has some very interesting history to it. Islamorada and the house is a great location and makes it perfect for reconnecting with friends and family away from the hustle and bustle of life.

What makes this house unique

The Last Resort has overwhelming views of the Atlantic, large open verandahs, 165 feet of private sandy beach and a 15 x 30 foot seaside heated swimming pool, all on over one acre of private tropical land. (MM 76.7) The property also boasts a 37 foot protected concrete dock on the canal adjacent to house with direct ocean access. Quiet seclusion awaits you at this unique destination. Located in the middle of the Florida Keys, in the upscale neighborhood of Lower Matecumbe, this four bedroom, four bath home; with 4,000 square feet of living area, offers you the ability to relax, entertain and enjoy the many recreational activities found here. It is the ideal home for extended families due to majority of living space being on the ground level. We are also a pet friendly property! The wide covered front and back porches are ideal for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. The rear verandah overlooks breath-taking ocean views, palm trees and the white sand beach, while the front verandah overlooks a beautiful tropical landscaped garden. Our vacation home also has a Roof Top Viewing Deck, again with stunning views of the palm lined sandy beach, and views of the blue & turquoise Ocean as far as the eye can see. See our Photos. Recognized as a preferred location by International Designers & Publications for fashion and swimwear photo sessions, the interior is casually furnished, tropically decorated, and provides every imaginable convenience. You will find an abundance of great island shops, full-service marinas, and popular local restaurants nearby!

Rowan Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The last resort was such an amazing home with beautiful views and wonderful amenities! I cannot say enough about how kind Greg and Michele were and how wonderful everything was for our vacation. The house was perfect for our whole family which included a baby, a two year old, a five year old, an eleven year old and a 16 year old. It met all of our family's needs! The pool was perfect and I was so thankful for all the pool toys and life jackets available for us to use. We also really loved the theater of the sea and feeding the tarpons! We loved eating at Lorelei's and the Islamorada fish company. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone and can't wait to come back someday!! Thanks again for everything!

Beautiful, peaceful and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation at The Last Resort was absolutely amazing! Our kids have all said this was the best vacation ever and we're hoping to make another trip to this lovely home before long. It was perfect for our family of 10 which includes a 4 month old baby, an active 5 year old, a 9 year old with many special needs, a 15 year old, their parents and ourselves. It was perfect for all! We really appreciated the many baby items available at the house for our use. We couldn't use the staircase for our 9 year old, but he slept downstairs with Grandpa in one of the king beds which was just fine! The beds were very comfy with nice linens on all. We loved having the kayaks available and took them out several times. Our week was so enjoyable to all of us. Michele and Greg were very easy to work with and she even had a new blender shipped to us when the one at the house malfunctioned! The house and property were very clean and well-manicured. The yard is beautiful and full of blooming shrubbery. Perfect for pictures! We enjoyed feeding the tarpons at Robbie's Marina which is very close by. We cooked most of our meals there at the house since we're such a diverse group, but the kitchen is well stocked and very easy to use. Several of our group spent a day deep sea fishing with "Dirty Boat" and Captain Joe and his first mate, Kit. (We highly recommend them as well!) We made the trek down to Key West one day and also spent part of one day at the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon. Very nice and educational experience! All in all, this was a vacation we loved from start to finish. We'll be back to this lovely home in the future!! Best regards from Mike & Patti Haberthur, Perryton, Texas

Perfect, kid friendly

  • 5 of 5

The house is as-advertised or better. Quiet neighborhood, great beach. Easy paddle to the canal where we saw crocs and iguanas. The house and amenities are very kid-friendly. The pool deck and beck porch are great hangouts. The living room looked nice, but we never used it. There are a couple nice TVs but they never got turned on, there was too much to do outside. Plenty of parking. The upstairs suite is huge. Most important of all, Greg and Michele provided great customer service from start to finish.

Our first family trip to THe Last Resort will not be our last. The property is beautiful, well maintained and the perfect place to enjoy a family vacation.

What a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

After exhaustive research and debate amongst the family we all decided on the Last Resort as the house we would rent for my wife's 60th birthday celebration. That proved to be one of the best decisions we ever made. The owners were outstanding in keeping us informed and up to date on the property prior to arrival and once we arrived we discovered the owners had left my wife a present for her birthday that was very thoughtful and appreciated. The house had such charm that all 8 of us fell In love with it. It was clean and had all the character an older Keys home should have.

We had no issues while there and everything we could possibly need to cook and clean was there. The pool was well maintained and utilized quite a bit by all of us, especially our 4 year old grand daughter. The property was very private and exactly as pictured in the ads. Local recommendations for food and entertainment were spot on, we actually ate at the Green Turtle more than once and the food was outstanding. Since the weather was not conducive to taking a fishing charter we messed around a little in the canal across the street and caught enough fish to keep things interesting, including our grand daughters first salt water fish!

Theater by the Sea, Robbie's and the aquarium on Marathon were great.

I can't say enough about the property or the owners, should another chance arise to get the whole family together again we will be giving them a call without hesitation!
