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!

Perfectly appointed and fit our family of 5 (ages 13, 11 and 8) perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

Close to the pool and all Islamorada attractions! Very clean and beautifully updated. Stocked with all the basics and we even got a "starter kit" with dish, soap and laundry detergent. We didn't need much more to get us through! We felt immediately at home here and will definitely stay again! The perfect family vacation spot!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the Angler's Reef. Lisa is a wonderful host and helped immediately, whenever we contacted her.

Lisa's house is directly located in the 2nd row, which makes it very close to swimming pool and beach, but at the same time quite as distanced from the street. The house is very nicely decorated and spotless. Beds are wonderful comfortable.

We liked it so much, we even extended our stay.

Definitely a recommendation, if you want to stay in the Keys.

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect, the dock was about 50 yards from the house. We felt so comfortable in the community that we left all of our scuba gear in the boat every day, sometimes with the keys.

It is located near 2 amazing reefs that are so well marked that you don't need GPS to get there, " hens and chickens " and " alligator " reef.

The Snake Creek channel is right next to Angler's, there was great fishing in there and a lot of "bugs".

The house was comfortable, loved hanging out on the back porch. We cooked some nice dinners and Winn Dixie is at mile marker 91.

Our hosts were the best, they offered to let us use there kayaks and we took them out to the sandbar, it really does feel like paradise drinking a Corona at 5 in the afternoon and hanging out on the sandbar.

At night it is quiet and relaxing which is perfect after being on the water all day.

We also felt comfortable leaving the kids in the house when we out a few times.

I am so grateful that I could provide my family with a vacation they will always remember.

We hope to do this every year, I hope to be back at Angler's Reef.

A spectacularly clean home, every need thought of!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Windley Cottage. The house was spotless, every need met. It is so nice to have so many items available to use: kayaks, all towels, pool and beach toys, and even new shampoo, conditioner and soap in the showers! Love the privacy. Felt perfectly safe and especially enjoyed the peace and quiet. The home had all the cooking utensils needed for someone who cooks daily- like we do! We enjoyed the grill for burgers and the griddle for pancakes! We look forward to our next stay!

Very enjoyable, well cared for property.

  • 4 of 5

The week we spent at Angler's Reef was very enjoyable for my husband and myself, my sister and her husband. The house was clean and well stocked with most of the required nonperishable necessities needed for day to day living. The owners were very friendly, easy to contact, and graciously accommodating. It was comfortably perfect for two adult couples with the second bedroom's twin beds made into one bed. Each bedroom had its own full bathroom which was very convenient. The pool was beautiful! We all had a lovely time on our vacation!
