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!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home definitely exceeded our expectations!! The owners were absolutely wonderful to deal with - I'm not sure there is a single thing they could have done to make our stay any better!! We actually rented 3 homes this time and were trying to figure which home would work for each family. We have a 1 year old and we were trying to figure out what we were going to do....the owners supplied Pack n Play and a portable high chair , which worked out perfectly!!!! They also supplied almost anything you can think of, beach towels , beach toys, sand toys, the kitchen also has pretty much anything you could possibly need! After we were there about a day....the owner emailed us to make sure everything was as promised and to see if we needed anything!! The home is beautifully decorated and was spotless! The location was extremely close to the pool! We were very excited this year especially because both of our daughters and there families came with us this year! We were excited to show the this beautiful community and what we love about Islamorada! We have stayed at several homes in this community in the last couple of years....some I would never rent again....this home would be at the very top of my list to stay in again!!!

If you choose this home as your vacation rental....you will not be disappointed!!!!

Very nice property in beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this property in Islamorada Florida. To start with, the property owners are very friendly, helpful, and responsive. All of my questions were responded to within a few hours...sometimes a few minutes. The property itself was clean and in good repair. This was our third stay in this development, and this house had a much better supply of kitchen items, towels, etc. than the previous 2 units we had rented (the other 2 places were not managed by the people who own this property). Angler's Reef is a great location with easy access to the pool, slips available for your boat just minuets away from the Atlantic, and many nice restaurants nearby. There is even a State Park across the street if you are looking for something a little different to do, and you can walk to the Theater of the Sea which our kids loved. We have 2 boys (age 17 and 13) and one girl (age 9) and they all love it down here. I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get away for a great vacation in the Keys.

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.
