Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable and has everything you might need for your stay but the thing that really sets this property apart is the outdoor space and location. Every morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise from the master bedroom window. The entire backyard is a sandy beach complete with palm trees - perfect for watching the sunrise, doing yoga, eating lunch, playing badminton, star gazing or just hanging out. The dock provides endless entertainment, in addition to being perfect for launching the kayaks, due to the extensive marine life - we saw barracuda, nurse sharks, lobsters, shrimp, horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs, jellyfish, and lots of other saltwater fish along with many species of birds. You can walk to nearby restaurants and a marina and the house is located on Old Highway which is perfect for walking, biking or jogging.

Alex was a wonderful owner and a pleasure to do business with.

A month here flew by and we can't wait to return next year.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Abbey and Dave as our guests. Specially knowing that they enjoyed the property as much as we do. It is truly a piece of tropical paradise that makes you feel like you don't want to leave it. We have many guests returning year after year and we hope they do as well.

I wish I could give it 100 stars

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best place I have ever stayed in my entire life. There were many things to do and just hanging out in the backyard on the beach was amazing. There is a beautiful view of the ocean. If you are staying in the master bedroom, you have a beautiful view of the sunrise. Overall this place was amazing, Alex was a great host, and I will for sure be back again.

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was handled with kindness and professionalism. Alex is an honest and dependable owner who is willing to go above and beyond to help his visitors have an enjoyable stay. The property is very spacious, and we enjoyed the privacy and quietude there. But the stunningly beautiful back yard, with the sun/moon rises, breezes, shade trees and plenty of seating and lounging was delightful and more than we expected. The Dock is a big asset as well and has seating to enjoy fishing or just contemplation. The kayaking was very nice.

The house is very spacious and charming with plenty of comfort. We took a chance-and ended up with a vacation property that has been the most beautiful, quiet and tropical property we have visited yet in Islmarada!

Very reasonably priced.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many homes and condos all over Florida and this was one of our favorites. Our family of five (children ages 15, 10 and 9) had a wonderful time. The home is comfortable and has everything you need. The owners are very pleasant to work with and easy to reach if needed. We hope to make it back again soon.

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and two boys ages 7 and 12) spent a week at the Russell Estate. It is wonderfully located. Close to many great restaurants and activities. Everyone loved the property. It has a secured back yard with hammocks, chairs, and swings for the kids. The dock was nice. We saw sharks, lobsters, fish, crabs, etc. from the dock. We saw a manatee in the little bay too. The kids loved snorkeling right off the dock. The home is well equipped. We would stay here again for sure!
