About Doug

Born and raised in central Illinois, our family has been coming to the Islamorada, Florida Keys area for the past 14 years and have completely fallen in love with it. We recently took the plunge and bought this gorgeous home to enjoy with family and friends. We would be happy to talk to you about the 'must see' places to visit and dine while you are visiting the area.

Doug purchased this house in 2012

Why Doug chose Upper Florida Keys

Our home is located on the very southern part of Tavernier right next to Islamorada. The home has undergone a $400,000 renovation. It is beautifully furnished with Ethan Allen furniture and has lush tropical greenery throughout the property. The pocket doors across the front of the home completely open up to the upper outdoor veranda that runs the entire length of the home for that Florida Keys home feel. On the lower level by the pool and boat dock, there is an outdoor shower, fish fillet station and stairs that lead right into the ocean water. There is a large Weber stainless steel grill for cooking out.

What makes this house unique

You will love the beautiful ocean view and all there is to offer in the area such as great fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, water sports, shopping, local restaurants or just hanging out at the pool. We are close to the Tavernier Marina, Bud and Mary's Marina and Robbie's Marina. The Winne Dixie grocery store is a three minute drive away. Theater of the Sea and John Pennecamp State Park is nearby. There is nothing like the laid back atmosphere of the Keys. Relax at one of the many open air restaurants, have a cold drink a great meal and listen to live music while watching a spectacular sunset.

Perfect rental for a Keys vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week in Tavernier in large part because of this house. The pool was perfect and sitting outside on the upstairs veranda every morning was a wonderful way to start the day. The house is as described and was a great place to relax for the week. There was plenty of space for our family and the beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in the Keys.

Immaculate home! Wonderful, relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We rented Doug's beautiful home for a week in March. We were a group of four-- my husband and I, my 14 year old daughter, and her friend. The house was perfect. We had plenty of space and privacy. Everything was beautifully maintained. My daughter had rejected a couple of other homes as being "too crusty", but she agreed to Doug's home, and it was even better than expected. Doug was excellent with communication and answered all of our questions in a very timely fashion. We loved the view from the veranda and spent many hours relaxing there. The girls enjoyed kayaking and fishing right from the dock out front. We took several long walks over to Harry Harris Park and all of us appreciated being able to step across to Chad's for a bite. We had an excellent week, and we were all sorry to come home. I would definitely rent this house again.

Fantastic waterfront home with boat slip

  • 5 of 5

House was everything advertised plus more. Attention to detail allowed us to enjoy our vacation because everything we needed was already furnished. Spic and span clean home with a heated pool and dock to park our boat. Instructions included great places to eat and visit. We definitely had a wonderful time and recommend this place!

Amazing Home and an Incredible Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and two small children stayed this past Easter at Mr. Daniels home in Tavernier. We cannot say enough about our vacation, the experience we had and the home. We fly down to the Keys once a year every year on our annual family vacation. This past trip ranks up at the top of our favorites ever. From minute one Mr. Daniels was the most accommodating property owner we've ever dealt with. Throughout our entire vacation and even afterwards you get a true sense of how Mr. Daniels really cares about your stay at his home and in the Keys! The House; The pictures do it no justice, trust me. The views from the 2nd floor deck, the sliding glass doors that open up the entire 2nd floor, the heated/secluded pool...all just amazing! Every morning started with coffee on the deck while the kids chased lizards and spotted iguanas, fished and tried to find different sea creatures (we had a barracuda visit almost every morning and even had a small nurse shark come right up to the bulkhead!) and every night ended with a glass of wine or a cocktail on the deck while you watch the moon glisten off the water and listen to the palm leaves rustle around you. The lights at night around the property and in the pool are spectacular. The landscaping, plants/flowers and trees make you feel like you are truly in paradise. The kids swam every morning and night and was a great way to start and finish a great day in the keys!! On days when you just wanted to stay back at the house and relax, the house had everything you needed. We made frozen drinks, used the Weber grill to grill up our fresh catch and relaxed on the pool lounge chairs or floated in the pool. Doesn't get much better than that. If you're looking for a true keys experience, a gorgeous newly renovated house and an owner who does everything possible to accommodate you and ensure you have an amazing vacation then stop looking and just book it and be done. Just don't book the week I want :) Enjoy!!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Just an amazing house. Everything you could ever need or want. The view was my favorite, every morning and evening each day it just got better and I never wanted to leave. The kids enjoyed the pool, and more so the coconuts. The little ones got to fish and we were lucky enough to have lots of them right off the dock. Mr. Daniels was amazing very attentive and helpful. I highly recommend this home. Look forward to another vacation there.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! Everything is pristine and beautiful.

The swimming pool was beautiful and landscaping also. We had many iguanas visit us while in the pool and my girls absolutely loved it!

The house is on a canal so it was perfect to rent a boat and dock it just outside so we could go fishing and snorkeling almost every day.

We will definitely be back.
