Overview

Islamorada House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, sleeps 6, ocean views from all 4 balconies, optional dock

This magnificent home with ocean views from all 4 balconies is located in Islamorada at Mile Marker 85 in the exclusive gated community of Angler's Reef, a quiet oceanfront community in the Florida Keys. Anglers Reef is a boutique complex of 52 homes inspired by Native Conch & British West Indies architecture. Quaint streets & walking paths wind through this village-styled retreat. Amenities include a community pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and 500ft of private beach. The home's boat slip is available for rent with a deep channel out to the Atlantic ($250/week). Or launch your kayak from the private beach (kayak rentals available for drop-off). Built in 2007, this home has 2 bedrooms located on the 2nd floor, each having a private porch with an ocean view, and has 2 more porches downstairs with ocean views for morning coffee or cocktails. Homes decor includes stainless appliances, granite counters, Brazilian wood floors, 3 flat screen TVs with cable including HBO & WiFi

Parks in Islamorada, Village of Islands: Just 2 miles north is Islamorada Founders Park at MM 87 Bayside, which offers activity or relaxation for the whole family. An Olympic-sized pool with diving area, a shallow water beach, water sports rentals, ball fields, fishing jetty, bocce, tennis and basketball courts, vita course with 18 exercise stations, multi-purpose path, skate park and dog park all are within the 40-acre park. Fees may apply. Village municipal parks also include the Islamorada Library Beach and Anne’s Beach. There is the Windley Key State Geological Site, a state park, at the site of a former coral rock quarry. In addition to shady walks through unique foliage, fossils of sea creatures can be seen throughout the park. A free guidebook is available at the visitors center for use during your stay in the park. Islamorada also offers an 18-mile bicycle path that extends the length of the Village.

Scuba/Snorkel! : Islamorada, long recognized as the 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World,' is now an icon among sport divers for a similar reason: a massive population of tropical marine life. High profile coral heads and broad ledges shelter huge congregates of French grunt and goat fish, while regal queen angelfish casually graze amid the reef recesses. Friendly green moray eels swim freely along the spur-and-groove channels, and reclusive nurse sharks lurk beneath the overhangs. Islamorada offers a wide variety of shallow coral reefs, mini walls, shipwrecks, and even an underwater habitat for scientific research, the Aquarius. To learn more about Islamorada or any other manner of local lore, stop by the Chamber of Commerce at MM 82.5.

*The Eagle - This 287 ft ship was intentionally sunk in 110 ft of water as a dive attraction, cloaked in sponge & coral, populated by grunt, harpoon & jack. *Davis Reef - Reef revered for its incredible concentration of grunts & schoolmaster snapper, as well as several amiable resident green morays, long accustomed to benign interaction with the dive masters. *Alligator Reef - Now marked by a 136-ft-tall lighthouse, on this spot in 1822 the USS Alligator grounded & sank while protecting a convoy from pirates; remains of the wreck are the twin piles of ballast stones, but the coral reef - in just 25 ft of water - is vibrant and alive. *Conch Wall - Offering a precipitous sloping wall & captivating concentrations of barrel sponge & gorgonia punctuating seafloor. *Crocker Wall - A 450+-foot-long wall in 50 ft of water. The wall has a 30 ft decline and features grunts, yellow tail &grouper with spur-and-groove coral & block coral.

*Pickles Reef - Reef's minutia in 15-25 ft of water.

About Scott Ofstein

We love the Keys! We purchased our home back in 2009 and loved it so much we bought a second home right next door (HomeAway #3000700) My wife and I have 2 girls ages 15 and 12 and they also love the Keys. They love boating, fishing, paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, biking and just hanging out at the Keys famous sandbars. Islamorada is an amazing Island and in my opinion the best location in the Florida Keys! You can't go wrong!

This was our family's second trip to this house and we loved it as much as the first visit. We love the location, the quiet, and the convenient basin to keep our boat so that we can effortlessly come and go to fish the waters of Florida Bay. We can fish early in the morning and then spend the mid-day heat by the pool or inside and then go out again for some evening fishing. The house is very well appointed and has everything you need. The owner is very attentive and committed to be sure that you stay is everything that you would hope it to be. We will be back next year.

Anglers Way

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained house and grounds. Excellent location - access to restaurants, shopping and low key entertainment. Owner responsive. Rental cost probably precludes us renting on annual basis but definitely would like to do it again someday.

One minor complaint - staff puts out garbage containers day before pickup; during our stay they were not put away until day after when I finally did it myself. This made parts of three days when it was difficult to back car out of carport without hitting a container.

Great home to stay in

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this home and Scott was great to work with. The location is great since we were near several places that will take you out fishing, a lot of great restaurants are nearby and there are numerous local artists in the area. The house had everything that you need in the kitchen plus porches on each level with furniture which was really nice so that we could spend more time outside. There were also nice views of the water. I would definitely recommend renting this house for your next stay in the Keys.

Just perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Anglers Reef for two weeks earlier this year.

We were so pleased with the quality of the home. Decor, cleanliness, location, and all were great.

We rented a slip through owner, access to the ocean was perfect.

We particularly enjoyed the views from this home. Loads of porches, which we love.

We very much recommend this home.

So happy we picked this place!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing. Would stay there again in a heart beat. Great location, beautifully kept house and grounds, quiet, great pool on the water, we had wine by the ocean on the private beach every night after dinner. Scott was wonderful to work with and was super flexible with us when we decided to extend our trip. We also received our security deposit back within a couple of days of getting home. We were there for our wedding and honeymoon and our family was able to use his other house next door so it was just perfect! I cannot say enough good things about this place!

Islamorada is located in the Upper Keys, about halfway between Miami and Key West. Nicknamed the Sport Fishing Capital of the World and known to have the best restaurants in the Keys, there is much to do in, under, above or near the waters surrounding Islamorada. In the water... you can boat, kayak, para sail, jet ski, snorkel, dive or even cruise out to the Alligator Reef Lighthouse or to Barnacle Bobs at the Tiki sandbar for a burger in the middle of the ocean. You can also swim with dolphins, sea lions and sea rays at Theater of the Sea (less than a mile south). Or if you have had enough water, check out the local parks, pampering spas, exclusive shops and a large array of amazing restaurants. Be sure to catch a sunset from the many restaurants or bars along the gulf side. And if it's a full moon, adults may want to head over to Morada Bay & Pierre's for their famous Full Moon Parties, beach parties with bonfires in the sand, specialty drinks and live entertainment (covers apply).
