Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, sleeps 6

Relax in this private home, known as "Windley Cottage", located at 129 Anglers Way in Angler's Reef, Islamorada's premier gated oceanfront community of 52 single-family homes, built in 2008. Enjoy the private beaches, boat docks (available for rent), and resort-style swimming pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Stroll around the lushly landscaped grounds among the pastel "Bahamian conch cottages" as you take in the ocean views.

Enjoy the SLIDESHOW below for a TOUR of Windley Cottage and the Anglers Reef community.

Islamorada is known as 'The Sport fishing Capital of the World', and fishing opportunities and water activities are limitless. Fine dining, unique shops and spas as well as area attractions draw visitors from all over the Keys to Islamorada, Village of Islands.

Our home sleeps four adults plus two children comfortably (sleeper sofa in great room on first floor). It offers one king bedroom with a private covered porch and a guest bedroom with two twin beds (convertible to a king). Each bedroom has its own on-suite bath and spacious shower. Watch the sunrise over the ocean as you sit on the balcony off the second bedroom.

On the first floor, relax on the front or rear porch, with an ocean view from the rear porch. A comfortable living room, dining area, powder room, and fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, subway tile backsplash, and granite counters complete the interior of the home. The well- equipped kitchen has all of the cookware, dishes, and small appliances you need for meal preparation. Our new upscale stainless steel kitchen appliances were installed in August 2016.

Our home is tastefully decorated with one-year-old furnishings throughout.

Children are welcome and we provide a highchair/booster seat, playpen, and baby gate for the stairs to accommodate the very young ones. We also provide pool toys and board games. But vacationers' pets are not allowed in Anglers Reef.

If you are bringing a boat, we can assist with docking arrangements in Anglers Reef. Nearby marinas have docking and boat/jet ski rentals as well. We provide our guests with two sit-in kayaks along with the needed equipment. Head out to the famous sandbar for an afternoon of swimming and socializing.

You won't even need to pack beach towels, chairs, or noodles. Just pack a few clothes and your toothbrushes and come on down to enjoy the wonderful Florida Keys with comfortable, luxurious accommodations in our home, Windley Cottage. See why people from all over the world get sand in their toes and return here over and over again.

Be sure to enjoy the SLIDESHOW TOUR of the inside and outside of the cottage at the bottom of the listing (just below "Amenities"): https://youtu.be/cz5wH_glOZU

About Roger and Linda Robitaille

Owner photo was taken aboard our Shamrock inboard diesel boat off of Keewaydin Island in the Gulf of Mexico near our primary residence in Naples, Florida. We both grew up in western Massachusetts and are both undergraduates and masters graduates of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Roger and Linda Robitaille purchased this house in 2015

Why Roger and Linda Robitaille chose Upper Florida Keys

Having become acquainted with all of the Keys during business travel over the years, I came to appreciate all that Islamorada has to offer. Angler's Reef being the premier retreat location in Islamorada made our choice of a vacation property clear!

What makes this house unique

We loved this cottage at first sight! It is an architectural style known as a "Bahamian Conch Cottage" which features high ceilings, lots of porches, metal roof, double-hung windows, and pastel painted clapboard siding. It is reminiscent of the classic structures of Key West. Although each of the homes has different individual details (dormers, gingerbread, hip or gabled rooflines, porch railing details), all are of the same style, providing the feeling of a Village within the Village. A stroll through the community is a step back to simpler, more laid-back times (but with all the modern amenities). That's why we're here and want you to enjoy our home just as much as we do!

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable and extremely well-appointed home in a gated community. Recommended for those familiar with the Florida Keys and are looking for great R&R. This is not a resort with available activities; although the community pool is steps away. Convenient location to local restaurants and attractions. Highly recommended.

Great place to escape the winter of the northeast

  • 5 of 5

This was my 5th year at this house and it was another great week. The house is in great shape and really clean, the community is the same as well. The owners are really responsive to all inquiries. The pool, marina and beaches are about a 1 minute walk away and the weather is always great in Islamorda.

Had a fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two weeks and are looking forward to booking the condo again for next year. Linda and Roger provided everything necessary for a perfect home away from home experience. The property was spotless and beautifully furnished. I can't think of anything that we would have changed.

Prefect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Joe and I stayed at the Windley Cottage for a month and it was just perfect for us. Roger and Linda have everything that you need and were very quick to respond to any inquiry we had. We've stayed in Islamorada before and this location is the best we think. The pool is just steps away and the kayaks are a wonderful way to tour the area for those who don't have a boat. We will definitely consider staying here again when we make our plans for 2018!

Beautiful Home and Surrondings.

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I stayed at this lovely house for 1 week. It is exactly like the pictures but better. House and grounds are very clean, Pool was spectacular, other residents were extremely nice. Master Bedroom has a great bed and nice walk-in closet. Bathrooms are prefect too! Kitchen has everything you need to cook, mix drinks, etc. Front and Back porch is perfect for early morning or late night conversations. Neighbors were a little close for my liking, but other then that it was perfect!
