We stayed at this house for a week at Easter and were surprised when we arrived to find it is up for sale. We were asked twice during our stay to accommodate showings, which we agreed to. The gazebo canopy was missing, and water and some lights at the dock didn't work. We called Eddy about the issues but they were never rectified, we were told the canopy ripped recently and were not offered any other options. The house is in need of a deep cleaning, has limited cookware stocked in the kitchen, the garbage disposal has a very large leak, and only six bath towels available.
We also had problems with receiving contracts and our security deposit timely. After we sent in our full payment plus security deposit, we needed to call Eddy to send the contract and were informed that our paperwork wasn't processed correctly. Two weeks before our trip Eddy requested we send him a copy of the signed check because he couldn't determine what he did with it. We were not refunded our security deposit within two weeks as indicated in the contract and again had to call Eddy. We finally received it after an additional two weeks.
We considered extending our stay an additional night until Eddy wanted the full price deposited to his bank by the next day, no consideration was given to the issues he did not address or us agreeing to allow showings during our stay. I would definitely not rent this house again
My husband and I rented this beautiful home for 1 week with our 2 adult children and another couple for lots of diving (spear fishing) and some fishing. The place was just as described and pictured. Eddy was accessible by phone and very accommodating with a request we had, and he wanted to make sure the place was clean on arrival (which it was) and that we enjoyed our stay (which we did). The canal was wide, and we had lots of space for our 33 foot boat. There was a cleaning table for cleaning the fish, and a grill that was stocked with propane! We moved the outside furniture around to get some shade in the afternoon, and it was nice to have a short walk from the boat to the house. We'd love to come back! It's a great location!
My wife an I spent over a month at this very comfortable, clean house in a great area this past winter between the months of Jan & March 2015. We loved our time there and it is absolutly perfect for a person who wants to do some boating in the Keys, 5 min to open ocean or 5 min to the bay! We would recommend this place and area to anyone. Also Eddy (the owner) was great to work with.
We rented this house for a week in July with another family. This house was very comfortable for two families. There was plenty of room at the dock for both of our boats. Everything in the house was beautiful. The kitchen was well equipped. The house was so clean! We loved every minute! We can't wait to go back next year!
Very nice, well kept house and yard. Excellent central location in the Keys with close proximity to most amenities. Islamorada is definitely the place to stay if you're looking for a relaxing fishing filled holiday. There were a couple minor issues with the house during our stay, but the owner was very accommodating and made every effort to make sure our stay was enjoyable. I would recommend this property.
We stayed in this fine home over Christmas break and had a relaxing vacation in the FL Keys. The home is beautifully appointed and feels like a luxury getaway. Located close to the supermarket and local restaurants, we were able to cook meals and enjoy them in the outdoor patio or go out to eat local cuisine. Everything was so convenient. The appliances in the house are nice and high quality, even down to the superfast Internet connection. The dock was great for launching our kayaks and even for going swimming/snorkeling. We saw plenty of pretty fish right from the dock. The owner, Eddy, is fantastic and a pleasure to work with. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
