We have been renting in the islamorada area for years. This home was nicely decorated and most accommodating. The water and sunset views were fabulous with easy access to the bay and ocean for all water sports. Had a great stay... The husnanders

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

This family friendly home was exactly as described and more. Rick met us and showed us around and had even decorated the home for Christmas. It was clean and well suited for our fishing family. We had two boats and the dockage was more than amble. The location was great with easy access to fishing, restaurants and snorkeling. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing for a relaxing, beautiful getaway. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Dream house by the sea.

  • 5 of 5

Dream house by the sea.

We did rent Ricks nice house for two weeks. Its a really nice and clean house with everything you will need. The location was perfect for fishing, we did rent a 30"boat that we easly could park in the nice dockage outside the house. its easy to clean the boat from the dockage with the near by water discharge, we did also use the fishing cleaning table which was really nice. Its close to a bait shop and also marina/gas station. There are also many nice resturants around islamorada just a short drive with car or boat.

Overall we are more than satisfied, and Rick and his wife are very nice people!

Se u again!

home away from home is an understatement!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with home away! No worries, the description of of this home's location and amenities and well maintained features were not just accurate but underplayed in our opinion. The owner met us upon arrival, he was so pleasant and showed us all of the details of fans,AC system, stove and washer dryer. Also gave us some great information for dining, kayak rentals, grocery shopping. He couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome in his beautiful vacation home. We enjoyed every single moment and did not wish to leave. What I loved the most, and there were many things there that I loved, was waking up every morning,opening the expansive windows overlooking Hurricane Creek and sipping coffee while the fisherman were netting their bait. Can't wait for next year! We are so greatful for our time there"

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for a week and we truly had a wonderful time. It was a much needed vacation away from the daily rush. We are fans of the Florida keys and Islamorada is by far our favorite one. We have stayed in many different rental properties in the area however none have met our expectations like this one. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed. We were given a lot of information about the place itself as well as surrounding areas which was very helpful. The homeowner really makes you feel welcomed and he is readily available with any questions you may have. We were looking for a place to unwind and fish and this house provides the perfect setting for that, all you have to do is walk out to the back yard and cast your rod and enjoy the day. We rarely felt the need to go out. Our children really enjoyed it as well. We even saw a manatee and a pair of Dolphins all while sitting out back. The amenities provided met all our expectations and we were even able to paddle board which my son enjoyed. We went in March of this year and are already thinking of when we can make time to return.

Jessica and Yosset.

Great place for families & the serious fisherman

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house! This is our 14th year going to Islamorada (Lower Matecumbe) area. We'd been renting the same place for years but the owners were using it. Finding a new place was a bit daunting! The house is on a pie-shaped lot, so the front of the house appears small but the gates open up to a huge back patio & yard area. There are several little seating areas, 2 big tables w/chairs & a couple of chaises. The dockage was very generous; we had our 27ft. Contender & 18ft. flats boat with plenty of room. There is everything you could want to make your fishing easy; electricity & water to the dock, a fish cleaning table in the shade and a storage room for your goodies with an extra refrigerator. The downstairs bedroom is perfect for teenagers. Laundry room downstairs as well with a large washer & dryer. Upstairs is a beautiful, comfortable living room & a big breakfast bar. There is a nice dining area plus little seating area that overlook the canal. All you need is right in the kitchen so you cook your catch. I usually cook every night & it was a pleasure. The bedrooms are on the smaller side, but plenty of room to put away your clothing, big closets & very comfortable beds. Master bath was lovely with a big whirlpool tub. There were plenty of towels & linens & all the incidentals were supplied- toilet tissue, paper towels, garbage bags, etc. There were also 2 paddle boards, which everyone used & really enjoyed. The view of the sunset from the dock was great. We had an older lady with us who spent much of her time sitting by the big windows, reading & watching the boats go by. She loved it. There is a nice shallow water/beach area nearby where people pull their boats up & swim; it's great for kids. There are 2 places nearby for boat gas & a hardware store & Habanos restaurant w/i walking distance.

The owner, Rick, met my husband there upon arrival to answer any questions & explain where everything was. He was very nice & a great host.

We had a great time & hope to return next year!
